WELLINGTON (AFP) - A CASH-STRAPPED New Zealand student has gone online to auction her virginity to help pay her university fees.

The 19-year-old has offered her virginity 'by tender to the highest bidder' on the ineed.co.nz website which is based in Hamilton, where Waikato University has its headquarters.

Under the heading 'Relationship For Sale', the teenager, calling herself 'Unigirl', said she was attractive, from the North Island, and desperate for money to pay ongoing university fees.

'I have never had a sexual relationship and am still a virgin,' her advertisement said.

'I am offering my virginity by tender to the highest bidder as long as all personal safety aspects are observed. This is my decision made with full awareness of the circumstances and possible consequences.' She said she was fit, healthy, with a trim physique and had 'no medical conditions of any nature', however she did not respond to a local newspaper request for an interview.

Website proprietor Ross McKenzie told the Waikato Times the website's policy was that as long as an ad was legal and did not offend the general standards of society 'it was okay'.
