San Diego student Natalie Dylan has hit a jackpot by staying a virgin to the tender age of 22. Now, thousandsof men are bidding big bucks in an international auction for a chance to get her through the messy, clueless & potentially painful “first time”. According to AU Herald Sun, an Australian businessman is currently leading the pack with a $3.7 million bid.
Originally, the virginity auction was just to pay for Natalie’s college degree, but now it seems that she might not have to work for living for the rest of her life. She got the idea when she found out that her sister managed to live comfortably throughout her college years by being an adult entertainer for only 3 weeks.
She’ll be doing the deed in Nevada’s famous Bunny Ranch Brothel, where it’s legal to exchange sex for money.
Folks, this is the best (and only) workable endorsement for the abstinence programs I’ve ever heard :-).
Part of me is kinda upset that the virginity is still so highly valued… I thought we’ve come a long way since people used to wave bloody sheets out the windows after the wedding night. Another part is cheering Natalie on: “You go girl – If being obsessed with woman’s virginity is idiotic, find the biggest idiot and fine him all the market will handle!”
Yet another part is just shaking her head in wonder. It’s hard, in this economic decline, to make living through sex and other adult work. Masseuses, parlors and even the highest quality escorts are scraping by and lowering their prices which come nowhere near the $3.7 million (or even $3,700) mark. And still, a little membrane for sale is setting a girl for life.
There’s a lot of indignant comments on the ‘net saying that the lady in question will regret it one day, and how seling your body is degrading. I say – your body is yours alone. If you decide to rent it (it’s technically not sold, you know – that’s *getting married* for money), it’s your business. One night for 3.7 mill? It beats the hell out of being a drone in some office or a factory worker from 9-5, only to have a corporation steal your retirement…
What do you think they want you for in an assembly line, as a Wall Mart greeter or at McDonald’s? Your mind? Nope. Your body. You’re selling your body there as much as you’d be selling it as a prostitute. And don’t tell me that there’s more dignity in flipping the burgers… (If you do, please explain why, without invoking God or feminism *once*. I dare you.)
I don’t know what to make out of the extraorbitant price of this First Fuck. Is it virginity itself? Is it the celebrity value of being the most famous “first boinker” in modern history? IS it about showing off your wealth & virility all in one… er… stroke?
A side note: A fun Canadian read, “A History of celibacy“, discusses celibacy & virginity throughout history and cultures, including the mention of several sociaties in which the male virginity was as prized as the female one. Well written & interesting…
