The young woman, who is only known by her nickname ‘Shatuniha’: ‘I am in urgent need of money, so I am selling the most precious thing I possess. I am ready to meet up soon, even as soon as tomorrow, and I am ready to have my virginity verified. I can come to a hotel at Predmostnaya Square with a document confirming my virginity, and with a person who will take the cash and leave, so that I am not fooled.
‘This person will take away the money, but I will stay… The money should be cash only.’
On the online auction site – 24au.ru – the lot was described as ‘virginity’, and the condition: ‘new – not used’. It was part of an auction called: ‘Children grow up.’
