Russian student auctions virginity online to pay uni fees
A RUSSIAN student is auctioning her virginity online to pay her university tuition fees.
The Daily Mail reports 20-year-old Ariana is selling her virginity on an escort website with bids starting at €150,000 ($A218,000).
Ariana said she made the controversial decision so she can raise enough money to study medicine abroad.
"I want to move to another country for my studies in medicine. The university will be very expensive, the rent will also be high...I want to get the financial burden out of the way so I can focus on my medical studies."
Bidders can also place a bid on Ariana's best friend Lolita's virginity.
The 21-year-old is also auctioning off her virginity and can be bid for separately or in combination with Ariana's.
