An American student and part-time model, who goes by the name Giselle, has claimed that she’s sold her virginity to an Abu Dhabi businessman for $3 million (approx Rs 19.5 crore). According to the Cinderella Escorts website, which is a Germany-based escorts service where the auction took place, the highest bidder was a businessman from Abu Dhabi with €2.5 million, the second highest bid was by a Hollywood actor from Los Angeles with $2.4 million, trailed by bid of $1.8 million from a Russian politician.
Giselle, who is 19 years old, shot a video of herself explaining that she was doing this to pay for her school fees and also to travel in the future. She also added that she should be able to do what she wants with her body as it is her choice.
“I would never have dreamed that the bid would rise so high and we would have reached €2.5 million. This is a dream come true,” she told The Sun. “I think the trend to sell your virginity is a form of emancipation and I am shocked about people who are against allowing a woman to sell her virginity. If I want to spend my first time with someone who is not my first love, that’s my decision.”
She also said that while it was her decision to auction her virginity, she used the website as it was a safe medium. The news report quoted the agency as saying that Giselle will be accompanied by security to the meeting.
Run by 27-year-old German, Jan Zakobielski from his bedroom in Dortmund, Cinderella Escorts grabbed eyeballs during 2016 when when 18-year-old Romanian model Aleexandra Kefren sold her virginity to a Hong Kong businessman for around €2.5 million.
