Deborah Arthurs, Daily Mail: A teenager who sold her virginity online for £8,800 has revealed the details of her tryst with the winning bidder. Alina Percea, 18, auctioned her virginity on a website so that she could afford to pay for her computing degree. The winner of the auction was a 45-year-old Italian businessman but she had no qualms about going through with the deal.
The businessman from Bologna paid for her to fly to Venice where the couple toured the sights before spending a night in a luxury hotel. Alina, who underwent two medical examinations to prove her virginity, said: ‘I liked the man and got on with him well. He
didn’t look 45, and he seemed much younger. ‘We spoke in English as I can’t speak
Italian and he can’t speak Romanian. He paid me a lot of compliments throughout the day, and he was very funny and charming. We got on very well, and I was pleased he’d won.
He told me he had a good job, but he didn’t say if he was married or had a family, and I didn’t ask him.’ Alina left her home town of Caracal, Romania, in January with two cousins, to find work in Mannheim, Germany, but lost her job in a restaurant because her German was too poor. She was inspired to auction herself on a German erotic website after reading how American woman Natalie Dylan, 22, from San Diego, had put her virginity up for sale for £2.5million.
The Romanian had hoped to raise as much as £50,000 through the controversial sale but still plans to go to university. ‘The bidding lasted two weeks,’ she told Closer magazine.
