Virginity For Sale

A Brazilian student has reportedly sold her virginity for almost half a million pounds in an online auction.

Wow. And to think, I just gave mine away. Along with the cash that middle-aged woman wanted, for cigarettes.

It's 20-year-old Catarina Migliorini, who was one of two virgins to take part in the auction for an Australian documentary. A Japanese man bid £487,000 to be the first to take her to bed.

Seedy, dirty, exploitative? Maybe. But times are hard and at nearly half a mil for a virginity, I can't be the only one thinking this is how we get out of the economic troubles. If we sold all the virgins in the UK for half a million pounds we could make about £6million.

Catarina said she would use the money to study medicine in Argentina. Well, save some for the therapy you'll need. In fact, you might need to save most of it for that.

She said in an interview, "For me, it's not prostitution." You're quite right. Why would paying for sex be prostitution?

She added, "When someone does something once in his or her life, this is not considered a profession. If you take a picture and it comes out good, you are not a photographer because of it."

Although, tell that to Chesney Hawkes. One good song and he's still called a singer.

Is this a sexist issues, showing than men treat women as nothing more than a commodity? Well, no, because the other virgin who sold their cherry was a man. Alex Stepanov from Russia sold his virginity for £1,800.

Hang on. £485,000 for her but £1,800 for him. Someone should tell him about the recent high court ruling that says man and women should get paid the same amount for the same grade of work.

Although, that depends on if the act of losing your virginity is the same grade work for a man and a women. Well, the nervousness, the pain, the crying after... the shame, the ruined reputation, the dress you have to throw away... but I don't know what it's like for the women.
