Remember when Opposition Leader Tony Abbott suggested that women should treat their virginity as a precious gift? Well, in New Zealand, you would most likely see that precious gift online on eBay – by the holder of the gift. The AFP is reporting that a 19-year-old teenager sold her virginity on an undisclosed online auction site and the winning bidder offered her $45,000 to buy it.
She, however, has caused a stir in New Zealand as it sounds like prostitution. Turns out, it has one of the most liberal laws on prostitution since women are legally entitled to seek money for sex.
The money has been used to pay her university tuition.
