It’s no secret that young adults are taking extreme measures to get their hands on Apple products. It wasn’t long ago that the story of the kid who sold one of his kidneys to buy an iPad 2 made its way around the internet.
Offering an organ for an Apple product seems pretty drastic, until you hear what this next girl is offering. The Korea Herald is reporting that a young Chinese woman has posted an “ad” offering to trade her virginity for an iPhone 4…
The Guangdong teen has posted a picture of herself along with other personal information on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter. Her listing states that she is willing to “sell” her virginity to anyone that buys her an iPhone 4.
The girl explains that it is her, “dream to own an iPhone 4,” but her father won’t let her get one. Thus, she has decided to sleep with someone in exchange for the mobile device. Needless to say, her post has been riddled with comments criticizing her actions.
This isn’t a problem with Apple or their marketing team. This is just the old fashioned get-what-you-want-at-any-cost mentality at its worst. I’m willing to bet the parents are kicking themselves right now. Not for not buying their daughter the iPhone, but for not teaching her any better than this.
What’s your take?
