Prize-Winning Teenager to Live With Russian Porn Star for a Month

Some prize winnings are far more lucrative than others, particularly if you happen to be a teenage boy.

Ruslan Schedrin—16 according to his mother but listed as age 14 by an official database—won an online competition by becoming the 100,000th visitor to a website that sells accessories for computer games. In exchange for his good fortune, the schoolboy has won the chance to spend a month with porn star Ekaterina Makarova in a Moscow hotel, according to the Daily Mail.

His mother and 17-year-old sister aren’t happy about it.

“I am absolutely against it,” mother Vera Schedrina argued. “He has got exams, he is studying. What do you mean – a month with a porn star? This is not real at all, even a week is too much. They should give us 100,000 roubles instead, we’ll be happy with it. Such a prize, how could they get such an idea for a 16-year-old boy. I am shocked. I have not seen the girl. But my son must study.”

Sister Diana Schedrina agreed.

“I’m against it too,” she said. “I don’t think it is any kind of chance for him. He can find a girlfriend if he likes. I wonder about this prize: what if a married man had won it? Or even a young girl, I know some of them enjoy playing these games too? It is totally the wrong idea for a prize.”

The family’s protectiveness probably shouldn’t come as any surprise. Though 16 is technically the age of consent in Russia, the notion of a teenager spending significant time with a porn star remains fairly taboo.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped the young Ruslan from jumping at the unusual opportunity. For his part, excitement quickly replaced his initial disbelief.

“I didn’t believe it at first, I thought it was rubbish,” he said. “But when it turned out to be true, I thanked the website, I was so happy. I called my friends and they did not believe it either, they said: ‘What are you talking about?’”

You can imagine Ruslan’s feelings toward Ms. Makarova herself.

“I saw her, and I liked everything. She has got good sizes… and so on,” he explained. “I am looking forward to our meeting so much, everything is boiling inside me. I am happy so much. I have told my mother, and she has taken it badly, but I think we’ll sort it out. When I meet the girl, I’ll say: ‘Hi, I am that very boy, I’ve won you.’”

Conceivably, the family could opt to designate the prize for another representative, like Ruslan’s father. But Vera isn’t particularly enthused with that option, either.

“No, absolutely not,” the mother said, also noting that the issue had created some strife within the family.

Makarova has yet to make Ruslan’s acquaintance, but she’s reportedly interested in taking a trip abroad if possible.

“I will travel to Moscow and then the boy will decide,” she explained. “We will negotiate it with his mother too if he can live in a hotel with me, or fly with me somewhere. He has some exams and studies.”

Some have naturally wondered whether there’d be any romantic interactions between the two during their month together. Does the prize itself entail sex?

“It is not supposed, but life is life,” Makarova said. “It is a usual thing when inexperienced boys are looking for more experienced girlfriends. I don’t know. At least we’ll be friends. I liked him in the photographs.”

Before any hanky panky is even considered, Ruslan—and perhaps his family—will have to make some decisions about logistics.

“If he is not comfortable about a hotel, he can stay at home,” Makarova added. “He has to decide.”

Of course, if it’s confirmed that Ruslan is 14 instead of 16, that will change a lot of things.

“We discussed it with the organizers earlier, that the winner might be underage,” Makarova admitted.

Should that be the case, it’s not entirely clear what will become of the prize. But if the teenager is indeed 14, one could safely rule out any intimacy between him and Makarova.
