“Money is urgently needed, so I am selling the most treasured thing,” the 18-year-old wrote on Russian auction website 24au.ru.
The woman, who listed her name only as “Shatuniha,” said she was willing to meet the next day. “I can come to a hotel at Predmostnaya [Square] with a certificate proving my innocence.”
The auction was posted Oct. 30 with a 800,000 ruble price tag, which translates to about $24,600. A day later, someone had bid 900,000 rubles, or about $27,700, in order to deflower her.
Shatuniha not only auctioned off her chastity for a hefty sum, she appears to have done it with impunity. Police in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, where the teen lives, told The Siberian Times that she broke no laws.
“[We have] no right to give a moral assessment of the girl’s actions,” officials said.
