Word has been going around that a teenage girl in China has put up her virginity for sale, as long as someone can help her get an iPhone 4 (a new one, of course) in exchange. It seemed as though this girl decided on Weibo as her “advertising” vehicle of choice, which is a Chinese microblogging service that is not too different from Twitter. The reason behind this? To own an iPhone 4 after her father refused to get one for her.
Sources say that the girl did put up a (non-nude) photo of herself on Weibo in addition to additional personal information, and she has mostly received brickbats to her request since an iPhone 4 is not worth the trade – while others felt (or rather, joked) that she should hold out for an iPhone 5 which is on its way soon.
Interestingly enough, you don’t read about folks doing crazy stuff for an Android-powered device. What does this say? Android owners are more level headed, or has Apple’s marketing juggernaut done too good a job to make their offerings desirable beyond comprehension?
Chances are there as well that someone else gained unauthorized access to her account, resulting in this rather immature prank. Earlier this April, a Chinese boy reportedly sold his kidney for $3,400 on the black market to pick up an iPad 2. What do you think of the whole shebang? Is it a hoax or genuine?
