A 19-year-old model has spoken of a "dream come true" after selling her virginity for more than $3 million to a businessman from Abu Dhabi.
The part-time student from the US claimed the highest bidder narrowly beat a Hollywood Actor from Los Angeles and a politician from Russia.
"I would never have dreamt that the bid would rise so high and we would have reached 2.5 million euros," she said. "This is a dream come true."
The American teenager, who goes by Giselle, made the controversial transaction via the German-based website Cinderella Escorts and intends to use the money to fund her university tuition fees .
"If I want to spend my first time with someone who is not my first love, that’s my decision," she said.
The site is run by 27-year-old Jan Zakobielski in Dortmund, Germany.
According to an interview with Forbes, Zakobielski takes 20 per cent of the profits from transactions made via his site.
