A mainland Chinese teenage girl has been caught on Weibo in the act of selling her virginity — for a white iPhone 4.

The girl has been identified by Hong Kong's branch of NextMedia as only surnamed Wen (pictured right), from Maoming city of south China's Guangdong province. She stated in her post that her "valuable first night" — which literally means 'virginity' in Chinese — was worth the gifting of a white iPhone 4, which retails in China for RMB 4,999 for the 16-gigabyte model.

The girl, Wen, then gave out her QQ number, and encouraged young men to contact her if they were serious about the deal.

Of course, it's possible that this is a publicity stunt by a young woman who's keen to become famous. Come to think of it, that might actually be preferable to someone selling their body in some way in exchange for a soon-to-be-obsolete gadget.

My Kidney for an iPad

Sadly, this isn't the sole incident of this nature this month: a few weeks ago a 17-year old Chinese boy went so far as to have a kidney removed so that he could sell it to buy an iPad 2, as reported by my colleague, Rick.
