A Russian woman is claiming to be a living emoticon and is selling herself to deliver “emotions” starting at 85 GBP a time.
Viktoria Ivachyova, 24, who is a resident of Russian capital Moscow, claims she can provide the exact emotions people desire, saying: “I noticed a long time ago that people’s mood changes after talking to me. I have started experimenting with it.”
Viktoria says she first noticed her living emoticon abilities by seeing how she could influence her friends and family and now is ready to work with others.
The price for her service reportedly starts at 6,900 RUB (85 GBP) and a request can be left on her website.
She also said that she is ready to help people when they are low, or when they want to cry, gossip or scream.
She added: “Let’s see what happens when a person ‘orders’ a certain emotion, which she or he wants to get.”
The Moscow resident visits people in their homes when they order an ‘emotion’ and takes a security guard with her for protection as she talks with them to provide the emotion.
Her page stresses that all inappropriate messages hinting on her providing escort or sex services are strictly banned.
Netizen ‘Nikolay Khromov’ said: “Such an interesting idea. Shame that it is so expensive.”
Another one named ‘Igor Tarasov’ commented: “Is she a prostitute or not?!”
