back to article Teenager tries to trade virginity for iPhone

Replace 'Dairylea' with 'iPhone' and the cheese-spread's slogan would be an accurate insight into the current state of youthful consumerism: kids will literally do anything for Apple kit. According to Chinese news site Biznewschina, a teenage girl has offered her virginity in exchange for an iPhone 4. The report, which we …

    Teenagers eh?...

    ...she just couldn't wait for the iPhone 5 to come out.

      She should have joined the Silver Ring Tone Thing movement...

      It's important to wait for the right smartphone to come along.

      Now she'll be comparing her current phone, to all her previous phones, and other phones she could have. She'll never be happy with her current phone now...

      oh, hang on...

    As everyone will attest, your first time is always the worst ( anyone who disagrees is a complete liar! ) so you might as well come away with something worthwhile to mark the occasion!

      I dunno

      My first time was bad, certainly, but I've had worse a few times since I got married.

    Well, it wouldn't be an Android phone, would it? Android users have no interest (or likelihood) in losing their virginity...

      It's not lack of interest, it's just that the Android GUI stops them being able to check the "man" page....

    "give mine to for free"

    Caleb - a male name. Might have some bearing on your experience.

    I've had this converstaion with friends several times.

    If a woman/girl, even one challenged in the looks department, walked into a bar and said "Take me, take me now", then people would be killed in the stampede. If a bloke did the same (unless it was in a gay bar), people might die, but only because they were laughing their heads off!

      that is all.

      Depends on the man

      I went to school with a bloke who was very very attractive to women. I'd walk through somewhere like a shopping centre with him & you could see them all drooling. He told me he found it "irritating" the cunt.

      That is why

      there are very many 40+ year old male virgins, but you will never find a 20+ year old female virgin. The apparent discrepancy is accounted for by those guys that can get laid, get laid many times by many different women. This is true of just about any mammalian species - only the alpha bulls get to mate.

      How I met your mother

      A friend in Devon met their other half by her walking into a bar, stating to the room that she was horny and who wants to go outside and ... well fornicate in a more colloquial term. They are still together 3 years later and have a baby; I guess sometimes you have to try lots of versions of something until you find what you like and she was just going about it pragmatically...

    I hear the first time's not that great anyway. Might as well get that out of the way and get a new phone out of it. After all, some societies pay people to deflower their girls.

    She's going to be annoyed when she realizes she also needs to pay for a data plan.

      I thought the first time was the absolute best

      but, when you make your second call, you realise it's just a not particularly good phone?

    Hey, I'm a teenage girl who will turn 16* next week, and I'm a virgin. Just send me a big stack of money and the place to meet.
