A Brazilian influencer has claimed to have rebuilt her hymen and is looking to sell her virginity by a raffle.
Ana Otani, who runs a YouTube channel and an adult content subscription service, said she wants to earn money from having sex with an unknown man.
The announcement was made by her friend, Diego Aguiar, a self proclaimed finance influencer, to his 1.4 million followers on Instagram.
The Japanese-Brazilian model is seen unpacking in the background when Diego introduces her in the video, saying: “Japa, my friend, had an operation to reconstruct her hymen. In other words, she is a virgin again.
“She is the only experienced virgin in the world, and we will shortly be raffling this virginity.
“It will be the first ever virginity raffle, and you can apply with a very, very small amount, because I want everyone to have the opportunity to have a Japanese virgin in their life.”
But the clip has received some backlash as some accused Ana of encouraging sexual exploitation.
Ana hit back on Twitter and defended herself, saying: “I’m the virginity girl! And I want to do this raffle. It’s my body! My rules!
“I want to have sex with an unknown man. However, he knows me and he wants me so much that he has bought a raffle ticket!
“The only difference to a one night stand is that I’ll be sober and I’ll earn money!”
Ana and Diego also posted a video from the affluent seaside resort of Jurere Internacional, in the southern Brazilian city of Florianopolis, in which Diego acknowledges the support and criticism received.
He also denied accusations of pimping, which, unlike prostitution, is illegal in Brazil, and carries a penalty of one to four years in prison and a fine.
It is not clear if the raffle is genuine or a publicity stunt to boost Ana and Diego’s profiles as the pair have not yet started selling raffle tickets and they have not set a date to do so.
It is not the first time Ana Otani has made the headlines. She was recently detained by the police when she tried to set fire to the headquarters of California TV, which produces her erotic videos, in the north-eastern city of Natal.
