I guess nobody told her she was priceless.

The Sun:

A STUDENT is auctioning her virginity online so that she can raise enough money to study abroad.

Ariana, 20, from Russia, is selling her virginity on an escort site — with bids starting at £130,500 ($228,650), The Sun reports.
Although she looked at other ways to raise money, Ariana says that she settled on the sale of her virginity as the quickest and easiest way to raise money.

In many quarters, I’ve seen that this is being portrayed as feminist empowerment.

Right, girls so desperate for education are renting themselves to people who will use them like an object is empowering. Yeah, that makes sense.
