What led to Aleexandra Khefren selling her virginity for €1million? Do her actions sully women or is it just a question of individual free will?
Aleexandra Khefren an 18 year old teen from Europe has told of seeking to sell off her virginity in a bid to keep her family off the streets in an online auction.
Along with helping fund an education, the teen who was inspired after seeing the film, ‘Indecent Proposal’ says she has set a limit of €1million ($1,064 850 USD) before giving her up her feminine sanctity.
The move comes after the teen told of her family facing eviction with the idea to place an advert on an online escort agency (naturally…) after watching actor Robert Redford’s character pay Demi Moore’s character one million to spend the night with her.
Told Khefren on the ITV‘s ‘This Morning’ program: ‘I was 15, I saw a movie on TV it was about a girl who sold herself for one night. Maybe I could do this with my virginity I saw many girls who sold themselves for £3.5million or more.’
According to a report via the dailymail, Khefren told of being up against a deadline as her parents faced homelessness while the teen tells of needing the money to study abroad at Oxford University.
Whether Aleexandra Khefren had been actually offered a place at the prestigious university is yet to be necessarily understood.

Asked about finding a repoire with a would be suitor, Aleexandra explains she ‘has no worries’ about completing the transaction no matter what he looked like.
Explained Aleexandra: ‘I am thinking it is strictly business not emotional. I think it will be alright, I think a glass of wine will be enough to get through.’
It’s when asked about the winning bidder’s health that the teen betrays that she may not have necessarily thought her plan fully through.
Explained Aleexandra: ‘I haven’t thought about that…’
Adding: ‘Probably I will test him too. I didn’t think about it.’
Which led to the show’s co host, Phillip Schofield responding: ‘I’ve got to say I am a father I have to say to you now, are you out of your mind? You haven’t thought about the health aspects the safety aspects. What are you thinking?’
Health concerns nevertheless seem to be the furthest things on the hard up teen’s mind, who concedes her parents have yet to have found out of her plan to sell her virginity.
Told the teen: ‘I told them that I am going for a modeling catwalk, I am doing this for them but they don’t know.
‘My father is a very strict man. He wouldn’t agree with it. If they don’t find out I will never tell them,’ she added.
From there the teen explained how the online escort agency were originally set to take 50 per cent of her total bid but have now ‘graciously’ (do you suppose…???) reduced it to 20 per cent.
Asked of the dangers of traveling and meeting the winning bidder, Aleexandra replied: ‘Someone with that kind of money will be a good man and won’t have problems.’
It’s when asked whether Aleexandra Khefren would advise other women in a similar situation to hers to go ahead that the teen reflected: ‘If it is an emergency like in my case… You need the money quickly, there is no other way that you can do it, I would say yes do it, but if it’s not then no.’
Distressed, the shows co hosts encouraged the teen to speak with the show’s counsellor after the interview to make sure that she truly understood the situation she had placed herself in.
Asked Phillip Schofield who makes north of a couple million pounds a year in his position vetting society’s moral detentes: ‘It’s a tragedy that it’s come to this. I hope personally that there is some miracle that your parents don’t have to get evicted.’
The interview in turn led to commentators on Facebook questioning both Aleexandra Khefren’s moral and intellectual fiber.
Reflected one commentator, Sally Rowe: ‘What sort of message does it send to all those beautiful innocent young girls out there that have been taught to respect themselves and their bodies!’
While Donna Greenhalgh said: ‘This is just the same as prostitution.. Why would you want to sleep with a complete stranger for money???’
Reflected a twitter user: ‘What a naive young girl. My heart goes out to her. I hope the counsellor or someone can dissuade her’
Nevertheless not all were necessarily condemning of the teen’s decision to sell her body in a bid to get ahead in life.
Told Sarah Convery: ‘No one has the right to judge anyone else’s decisions. If she is old enough to have a say in the government of the country she is old enough to make her own decisions about her body.
‘Not knowing the life this girl has had makes it impossible to say anything – I would have a lot more to say to the men who would bid. Everyone makes mistakes and hopefully learns from them.’
Yet to be necessarily understood is whether producers along with ‘This Morning’ host Phillip Schofield have been able to facilitate a situation that may save Aleexandra Khefren and her family from their fate given the extraordinary concern Aleexandra Khefren’s situation has since merited….as a search for the teen’s online auction bid brings up zero results.
