A teenage girl in China has offered her virginity in exchange for an iPhone 4, as people continue to find new loop-holes at getting popular smartphones without an upgrade.
The girl said her dream was to buy the iPhone 4, but her father forbade her. So rather than try to convince him, she took to Weibo, a Chinese version of Twitter, and offered her virginity in exchange for the device. She posted a photo of herself along with some personal information.
The post was met with mixed reviews. Some responders told the teen the iPhone wasn’t worth her virginity, while others told her to wait for the iPhone 5, which could be out as early as September and may pack an 8-megapixel camera and Dual Core.
As bizarre as the report is, several other instances demonstrate that some will do whatever it takes to get their hands on Apple’s latest devices.
Earlier this month, a 17-year-old Chinese student sold his kidney on the black market for $3,400, used in part to buy aniPad 2 and a laptop.
“I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it,” the boy, known as Zheng, said. “A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan.”
The boy’s mother became suspicious when her son came home with several devices.
In December, Chinese customs officials detained 14 woman on suspicion of smuggling iPads into the country. Shenzhen-based authorities caught the smugglers carrying 3G versions of the iPad, which are not available in the country, where only Wi-Fi versions are sold. In total, the group of housewives smuggled 88 iPads along with 340 cell phones, for a value of $142,000.
