Mum of teenager who 'auctioned her virginity' issues stark warning about escort website that 'lured her in'

Mirror logo Mirror 5 days ago

The mother of a schoolgirl who attempted to auction her virginity through an infamous escort service has blasted the way her daughter was lured into the business.

'Lola', from the Netherlands, who said she is a "verified virgin", went viral after trying to auction of herself on Cinderella Escorts for 20,000 EUR (£17,682).

The 18-year-old's mother has now spoken out about the "dubious practices" of the website.

Lola's mother, who did not want to be named, told Dutch media that her daughter suffered from mental illness and the advert started off as a 'a joke'.

She said: "My daughter thought it would be fun to make such a video together with a friend and to see how much money people would offer.

"Imagine if she would have signed something and would be tied down to it. A joke on the internet can easily take on a life of its own and it is not always simple to erase it."

The mum said she was particularly angry at Cinderella Escorts for not doing more thorough checks.

She added: "I have researched them and apparently the owner runs it from his bedroom at his mother's house in Dortmund.

"They allege that they test the girls beforehand at a psychologist and that they ask for a medical statement.

"My daughter has been in therapy for ages and would never have passed such a test. And the medical statement they just took from the internet and edited it a bit."

Jan Zakobielski, 27, the man behind the German escort website, defended his business.

"Of course, the mother may now try to take articles offline by telling all kinds of horror stories," he said.

"Do you get the impression that the girl in the video has psychological problems? I don't think so."

Lola's mother said her profile had now been taken down from Cinderella Escorts.

Lola's profile original read: "I want to sell my virginity because I want to pay for my school and live a life free of financial worries. I will also use this money to help my family with some various debts that they have."

The profile of 20-year-old Monica, another Dutch 'virgin' who put her services up for sale at the same time as Lola - is still online.

Cinderella Escorts rose to worldwide fame earlier this year when Aleexandra Khefren, an 18-year-old Romanian model, sold her virginity for 2.3 million EUR (£2million) to an unnamed Hong Kong businessman.

The website reportedly keeps 20% of every 'sale' as a fee.

Earlier this month Jasmin, a 26-year-old student from London, hit the headlines after bids for her virginity reached £100,000.

She revealed her parents agreed with the decision to sell her virginity rather than wait for the wait for the right man.
