A Siberian teenager has taken to the internet to sell off an item she will never be able to replace – her virginity.

The 18-year-old posted an auction listing on the Russian website 24au.ru saying she needed money urgently and was selling her most treasured “thing” to get it.

She also wrote she was willing to meet at a hotel the next day armed with a certificate to prove her purity, Huffington Post reports.

Her virginity was put up for auction last Wednesday for 800 000 rubles (N3 895 902) and a day later an eager bidder bid 900 000 rubles (N4 386 849) to have the honour of ending the chastity of the teen who calls herself “Shatuniha” online.
