Student Alina Percea auctioned off her virginity to the highest bidder on a German website
Alina was born in Romanian and is a student in Germany, was paid £8,800 ($12,321.63) in cash for a weekend of sex with the Italian businessman after she auctioned her virginity online.
Tax authorities in Germany are poised to claim 50 per cent of the money that a teenage student earned from the sale. Prostitution is legal in Germany but it is heavily taxed.
‘It is not a moral standpoint but a fiscal one,’ an official said. ‘Prostitution is not an illegal act in Germany, but not paying tax on earned money is.
It also emerged that, because Alina earned so much in such a short time, she may even be liable for a hefty VAT bill too. VAT in Germany works out to 19 per cent, meaning the sale of her virginity could land her with just over £3,000 ($4,200.55) in the end.
Alina, who studies in Mannheim, told how a 45-year-old Italian businessman took her virginity with unprotected sex at a luxury Venetian hotel.
“I liked the man and got on with him well. He didn’t look 45, and he seemed much younger.”
