A teenage American model has finally sold her virginity for around $3 million to a wealthy Abu Dhabi businessman.
Giselle, 19, who put her innocence up for sale with Cinderella Escorts, says she wanted to give it up so she can pay for tuition fees and go traveling around the world.
According to reports, she was offered the huge amount by a millionaire businessman from Abu Dhabi who outbid an unidentified Hollywood actor and the third highest bidder, a Russian politician.
An excited Giselle said:
‘I would never have dreamed that the bid would rise so high and we would have reached 2.5 million euros. This is a dream come true. ‘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.’
I’m happy to be part of this new trend’ that ‘finally breaks the taboo about a woman’s virginity’.
She added that selling her virginity was her idea and she only used the website so the transaction and meeting could be carried out safely.
Giselle said she was ‘shocked’ by the outrage against women selling her virginity, describing it as a ‘form of emancipation.’
‘If I want to spend my first time with someone who is not my first love, that’s my decision,’ she said.
‘The fact that women can do what they want with their bodies and have the courage to live their sexuality free against the critics sets a sign for emancipation’.
She added: ‘In retrospect, how many would probably give up their first time if they could have 2.5million Euros instead?’
Giselle said she had planned to sell her virginity before finding out about Cinderella Escorts, but decided it was safer to work with an agency.
The agency rose to worldwide fame after the auction in 2016 of Aleexandra Khefren, a 18-year-old Romanian model who sold her virginity for 2.3 million euros (£2 million) to an unnamed businessman from Hong Kong.
Twenty percent of each auction goes as a fee to Cinderella Escorts, according to local media.
The man behind Germany’s most famous escort website is 27-year-old Jan Zakobielski, who runs the business from Dortmund, and likens a woman’s virginity to a ‘very old wine’ or a ‘luxury car’.
A spokesman for Cinderella Escorts said: ‘On our website you will find a video where girls from all over the world talk about the reasons to sell their virginity.
‘[T]he high bidding for Giselle’s auction shows us how high the demand for virgins is. Business people from all over the world have been bidding.’
