A girl who sold her virginity in an online auction to a wealthy Italian for $12,500 has been called a prostitute by the German government and ordered to pay up over half of her earnings, which she claimed to have raised in order to fund her university studies the easy way.

The girl (18), a Romanian studying in Germany, flogged her hymen online, and then had unprotected sex with the buyer in an Italian hotel.

Hearing the media attention surrounding her marketing efforts, German authorities pointed out that she really should be paying tax on her earnings.

Prostitution is legal in Germany, but the state demands a take, which at 50% plus VAT is high even for a nation which is well known for languishing under the burden of heavy taxes.

German taxmen are implacable:

“It is not a moral standpoint but a fiscal one. Prostitution is not an illegal act in Germany, but not paying tax on earned money is. Consequently we are assessing her case and it looks likely she will have to pay around half of the sum she gained.”

On top of income tax, she may also be expected to charge VAT, which at some 20% means she could be left with a pathetic $5,000.

A tax expert weighs in on her plight:

“Even if she was taxed as a purveyor of erotic moments, or whatever she wants to call what she did, she would have to pay tax on it.  Prostitution is merely a means for the bureaucrats to pin her down for a claim.

She would have been better off keeping quiet about this strange transaction.”

Of course, had she kept quiet about it, she would never have succeeded in attracting a wealthy virgin hunter…
