An Italian model who promised to perform a sex act on 19.4million voters says she's "tired" after first the 400 - but vows to continue to at least ONE MILLION.
Glamorous Paola Saulino, 27, is still determined to prove she is a "woman of her word" after completing the first leg of her so called "Pompa Tour" to 'thank' everyone who voted 'No' in an Italian referendum. The word "Pompa” means pump in Italian – and is slang for the sex act she is offering the 'No' voters.
Paola made the bizarre pledge as she felt so strongly against constitutional reforms put forward by former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
When 59% of the electorate voted to reject the changes in November, most people expected the aspiring actress to backtrack.
But Paola - who is originally from from Napoli but lives in Los Angeles - swiftly announced the 10-date Pompa Tour after telling her fans: “I am a woman of my word”. The first leg kicked off in Rome on January 7 and ended in Palermo on January 21. Paola has now announced a second leg - with 11 more dates - starting in Foggia this Wednesday.
And she now says: “My goal is one million, I would love one million.”
The Daily Star spoke to Paola exclusively about the demands of repeatedly performing the sex act on strangers - when she admitted she experienced “stress” and “tiredness”. It added she is in good health and has not sustained any injuries.
Paola also revealed the acts are performed in a private room and that she "sometimes asks for a time out".
Paola told The Daily Star: “I decide if the guy has to wear condom or not.
“If I don't want him to, that’s okay, I choose.
“Nobody has complained so far.”
The model estimates to have pleasured more than 400 “No” voters across the country so far. She also told how one man "started to cry saying to me I am sorry I am too shy. I tried to do my best but after a couple of minutes he decided to go away because he didn't feel comfortable," she added.
Some 10,000 who previously applied for the first leg received a booking code and an address for the event - if successful - where they had to line up.
The next towns on the tour will be Foggia, Campobasso, Latina, Positano, Catanzaro, Salerno, Cagliari, Bodduso, Cannigione, Purfugas, Catania and Bomarzo.
The Daily Star says critics have branded Paola a “hussy” on Instagram for “throwing mud on those who defend the constitution”.
