29-year-old Romanian man, Seb Ciercies, tried to sell his virginity for 850 Euros in order to settle his mounting debts but received not one single offer. He had put the advertisement in the local newspaper, describing himself in a as 'Athletic, toned and dark-haired'. He wrote:
'Man, 29, Brasov. Athletic and toned, dark haired. I'm selling my virginity. Price: 850 Euros. Transport not included.'
Mr Ciercies says it's been weeks since the ad was placed and he was shocked he got nobody calling to take him up on his offer. Seb took out the ad to pay off debts he has run up through unemployment and having to care for his diabetic brother. Wanting to expand his chances of getting a client, he did not specify whether buyers should be male or female. Yet, no one called.
What does he think of the whole thing? He told Daily Mail;
'I don't understand it. I'm a good looking guy with a good physique. I thought someone might even offer me more.
'I'm healthy, I'm no Brad Pitt but I'm not ugly either. I forgot to specify male or female in the ad and I didn't even get any gay takers.
'It doesn't do much for your self-esteem to be rejected by absolutely everybody in the world.'
'I've worked hard in the fields and in farms all my life. It's tough work but it has given me a great body. I thought people would be keen to try it out.'
What do you think of Mr. Ciercies' offer? And the lack of buyers thereof? I think the people in his town are probably just as poor as he is or thought he was joking. Now he's gone international, he may just get more takers than he can handle.
