An 18-year-old woman has decided to sell her virginity in order to save her parents from eviction.
Appearing on “This Morning” with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Aleexandra Kefren, who is reportedly from Eastern Europe, said she will auction her virginity for no less than $1,061,000, the Daily Mail reports.
Her parents are not aware of her plan to save them from being evicted, which is set to occur in February 2017.
Kefren placed the ad for her virginity at an online escort agency, and was inspired by the movie “Indecent Proposal,” wherein a wealthy man offers a married woman one million dollars to spend the night with him.
“I was 15, I saw a movie on TV it was about a girl who sold herself for one night. Maybe I could do this with my virginity I saw many girls who sold themselves for [$4.3 million] or more,” Kefren said.
She does not foresee emotions getting in the way.
“I am thinking it is strictly business not emotional. I think it will be alright, I think a glass of wine will be enough to get through,” Kefren said.
Kefren’s virginity has been tested by the online escort agency, but there is no guarantee the auction winner will be in good health.
“I haven’t thought about that,” she said, adding “Probably I will test him too.”
“I’ve got to say I am a father ... are you out of your mind? You haven't thought about the health aspects [or] the safety aspects. What are you thinking?” Schofield said in response.
Health concerns do not appear to be high on Kefren’s list; she just wants to help her parents, and pay for her education at Oxford University.
“I told them that I am going for a [modeling] catwalk, I am doing this for them but they don’t know,” she said. “My father is a very strict man. He wouldn’t agree with it. If they don’t find out I will never tell them.”
Kefren will receive 80 percent of the final bid for her virginity, with 20 percent going to the online escort agency.
She will be traveling alone to the winning bidder's European location.
“Someone with that kind of money will be a good man and won't have problems,” she said after Schofield mentioned there are “very bad people out there.”
“This Morning” shared Kefren’s story on its Facebook page and received varied responses.
“Such a shame that This Morning would entertain such utter rubbish! Love watching Phil and Holly when I can but sorry wouldn't tune in to see a silly little girl get her moment of fame! What sort of message does it send to all those beautiful innocent young girls out there that have been taught to respect themselves and their bodies!” one user wrote.
“You know what, most of us lost ours in less than ideal circumstances, so if she can set herself up for life and she is happy with what she is doing she should go for it. Let's face it, they'll be many of us would change our first time,” another commented.
“Sorry but this is so very wrong. This Morning should NOT air this,” yet another wrote. “Silly girl if this is just for a few mins in the public eye. Fame does not last. If she is putting out there for the highest bidder and not wanting less than a million [dollars]. If any man bids for her virginity SHAME on him. Disappointed that This Morning should even consider airing this.”
Kefren would recommend what she is doing to others, if they have no other choice.
“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 then no,” she said.
