Two young Dutch women put their virginity up for auction through German escort site Cinderella. 18-year-old Lola and 20-year-old Monica each want a minimum bid of 20 thousand British pounds, around 27 thousand euros, for their virginity. They approached the German agency, because such an auction is illegal in the Netherlands, the Antwerpen Gazette reports.

"I want to live without financial worries", Lola said on Cinderella Escorts. "I will use the money to help my family out of debt. Many people will disapprove of my decision, but how many people stay with the person who took their virginity for the rest of their lives? Not many at all. Then I prefer to do it this way. At least my feelings won't get hurt."

"I still haven't found anyone I find worthy enough to lose my virginity to", Monica said on the site. "Plus going to university is not cheap, so I want to pay my studies in this way. We live in a society and time in which we can decide for ourselves what we do with our bodies. It's important that I feel I am the boss of my body. This is the best option for me, it will also secure my future."

Before the deed can be done, the young women must first get a doctor's certificate stating that they're still virgins. And their customers must indicate which hotel room they will book for the appointment. Cinderella's owner will personally ensure the young women's safety, according to the Antwerpen Gazette.

The two Dutch girls are among 38 women currently selling their virginity on the site.
