There seems to be several different meanings to that phrase, these days especially.
Meaning 1) A teenage girl in Germany sold her virginity online to an Italian businessman for $18000. She had hoped to raise $100K for schooling, I think.

Meaning 3) Now if I understand the business correctly, that would make the German government her pimp. No doubt the taxman will be wearing leather pants and a hat with a feather.
