A debt-ridden Romanian tried to ease his money worries by selling his virginity for £700 - but didn’t get an offer from anyone.
Seb Ciercies put an advert in his local newspaper in Brasov, central Romania, describing himself and offering his body so he could pay off mounting debts.
His notice said: ‘Man, 29, Brasov. Athletic and toned, dark haired. I’m selling my virginity. Price: 850 Euros. Transport not included.'
But weeks after placing the advert, baffled Seb has not had even one response from a potential buyer.
He said: 'I don't understand it. I'm a good looking guy with a good physique. I thought someone might even offer me more.
'I'm healthy, I'm no Brad Pitt but I'm not ugly either. I forgot to specify male or female in the ad and I didn't even get any gay takers.
'It doesn't do much for your self-esteem to be rejected by absolutely everybody in the world.'
Seb took out the ad to pay off debts he has run up through unemployment and having to care for his diabetic brother.
He said: 'I've worked hard in the fields and in farms all my life. It's tough work but it has given me a great body. I thought people would be keen to try it out.'
