A 19-year-old teenage girl has claimed that she wants to sell her virginity for 2,000,000 Kazakhstani tenge (£4,000).
Aynur Zhanibekova, 19, made the confession while taking part in ‘Oz oyym’, a talk show aired on Kazakhstani television.
During the show, Aynur confessed that she have given the subject a lot of thought in recent months.
She said that she asked herself why would she have sex with someone for free if she can have sex and make money at the same time.
Aynur said during the show: “I need money to pay for my study.
“A lot of girls date their boyfriends [and have sex with them] for free, and I am going to get some money for that.
“I would spend the money to pay for my study and have a hymen reconstruction surgery. Also, I will probably start a beauty shop.
“That is why I am selling my virginity.
“I do not know why it is still so important to the society that a girl to be a virgin.
“There is no point to be fixated on virginity as a woman has a lot more other important qualities.”
According to Aynur, she does not want to be a burden for her mum, who is have to work hard to pay for her studies.
She said: “My mother is working hard and can barely pay for my study. I want to help her.”
According to Kazakhstani media, 60 men are interested and contacted Aynur after the show.
Due to the unexpected demand, she is considering to raise the price, reports say.
Kazakhstan has strong religious and conservative traditions. 70 percents of the country’s 18 million population are Muslims.
Aynur was highly criticised for her ‘business thinking’ by local netizens with many of them condemning her.
Social media user ‘Alina’ said: “What a disgrace! I feel sorry for her parents!”, with ‘Ayzek Nurgaliev’ added: “Shame on her!”
And ‘Leila’ commented: “It is her body! She has the right to do whatever she wants!”
