Virginity For Sale

Posted: Updated:
. - A 27-year-old medical student is selling her virginity in an auction. The auction ends at 8 p.m. tonight.

Elizabeth Raine (that’s her alias) describes herself as 5-foot-10, 130 pounds, with blond hair and green eyes. “Liz” is offering a sensual 12-hour date that will transform her from a virgin to a…. well… you get the point.

When she opened up the bidding on April 1st, she kept her face hidden and revealed few details. But now with the bidding almost over, she has recently added new pictures that show her entire face and added more details about herself. Elizabeth says she has a degree in biology and engineering; and she plans to receive both an M.D. and a Ph.D.

For someone who has such high ambitions and goals, this move is far from intelligent. She says she wants to protect her true identity for the time being, so this doesn’t affect her professional life. But what about her personal life? At the end of the day, what happens in your personal life affects every other aspect of your life, including your professional life. (Lesson One….)

Elizabeth says the reason she is doing this is partially for financial reasons, actually she calls it a “financial opportunity.”

But even if she is taking this route to help pay for school, one can’t help but to wonder why not get a real job? That job will likely not pay as much as this crazy experience will, but at least at the end of the day she would still have her dignity… (Isn’t that worth something?)

According to her, virginity loss is a physical experience and value shouldn’t be placed on it, although she goes on to say a woman has the right to place her own value on her virginity. In a twisted way though, with an auction doesn’t that mean others are the ones placing the value?

This story gets even stranger- Elizabeth says she doesn’t think young girls should auction off their virginity. (Oh really? At least she recognizes that….) However she goes on to say, she feels her mature age, education and financial independence makes it okay for her to do so.

And for anyone who thinks this is scam (could very well be) Elizabeth claims she can prove her virginity through an unbiased physical examination or even a polygraph testing. (Right…)

Elizabeth plans to donate 35% of the proceeds to a charity that educates women in developing countries. (Well that’s nice… insert sarcasm here.)

Elizabeth says she reserves the right to investigate the bidders and to not award her virginity to the highest bidder, if she has any safety concerns (back to – this could be a scam…)

Alright, what more is there to say? The whole thing is embarrassing, humiliating, disgraceful, ridiculous… the list can go on and on….

Oh one more thing… as of this morning the bids have reached $801,000.
