London, Aug 7: The disturbing trend of teenagers across the world putting their virginity for sale online continues as a Hungarian girl has now sold virginity to a British buyer for 200,000 pounds.
The 18-year-old girl had advertised the sale on the popular online auction site, e-Bay, in a bid to fund her medical studies. The auction continued through e-mails after eBay stopped the auction, The Sun reported.
The seller identified herself as Miss Springs. The blonde is now set to travel to Britain so that she can fund her dreams of going to university to become a doctor.
"My family has debts, we cannot afford to pay them. My mother borrowed a lot of money in Swiss Francs, and now with the credit crunch in Hungary the repayments in Hungarian forints have tripled, she couldn't pay it back.
"We faced losing our home and being on the street. I want to be able to pay back those loans - that's why I came up with the idea for this auction. It is not such a lot of money for what is on offer, considering half will vanish in tax, but it will be enough to pay of my debts and leave us clear," the girl is quoted as saying in the British tabloid.
"I was in contact with two final bidders - the Irish guy and the British guy. Both wanted me to come to them. I chose the British guy. He was very sympathetic to my cause.
"Both men wanted to marry me, take care of me and my family. But for me this was supposed to be a one off thing. Getting married and living with someone is a challenge I am not sure I am yet ready for," she added.
