Aleexandra Kefren, an 18-year-old girl from Eastern Europe, is taking on her parent’s financial struggles and trying to solve them in the least logical way possible: by auctioning off her virginity. For the small price of $1 million, Kefren is selling her innocence in hopes of getting her parents a new house by February, when they are scheduled to be evicted. Did we mention they have no idea what her plans her? Yeah.
The teen got the idea to place the controversial advertisement on an online escort agency after she watched the film Indecent Proposal, where Robert Redford’s character offers Demi Moore a swift $1 billion to spend the night with her.
“I was 15, I saw the movie on TV, it was about a girl who sold herself for one night,” she explained to This Morning‘s hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. “I thought maybe I could do this too with my virginity.”
Along solving her parents’ financial troubles, Kefren also hopes to use the leftover money to study abroad at Oxford University. When asked about the winning bidder, Kefren said she had little worries and would “complete the transaction” regardless of what he looked like.
“I am thinking it is strictly business, not emotional,” she said. “I think it will be alright, I think a glass of wine will be enough to get through.”
I’m sorry, one glass of wine? I can hardly feel anything after one glass of wine. You’re selling your virginity… prepare to down the entire bottle.
Needless to say, both Willoughby and Schofield were concerned about her decision, especially when it became obvious that she didn’t think the whole thing through. For instance, Kefren underwent a medical examination to ensure bidders that she was a virgin, but she didn’t take into consideration the winner’s overall health.
“I haven’t thought about that…,” she said when questioned about STDs. “Probably I will test him too. I didn’t think about it.”
So what do her parents have to say about her decision? Absolutely nothing, because they know nothing about it. “I told them that I am going for a modeling catwalk,” she explained. “I am doing this for them but they don’t know. My father is a very strict man. He wouldn’t agree with it. If they don’t find out, I will never tell them.”
When the hosts expressed concern, she tried to reassure them by saying a man with “that kind of money will be a good man.” When they pried further and asked what advice she would give to women in similar situations, she explained, “If it is an emergency, like in my case, you need the money quickly, there is no other way that you can do it. I would say yes, do it, but if it’s not [an emergency], then no.”
I understand that she’s desperate, but there has to be another way around this, right? A loan? An inexpensive apartment? Taking a year off from school and working to help support them? Literally doing anything besides selling your body? Help a sister out here.
