Woman to auction off her virginity!

I suppose that with all the strange things that are happening these days I should not have been shocked to hear that a 22-year-old young woman is auctioning off her virginity to the highest bidder, but, yes, I can still be shocked! Tyra is planning to have her on the show next Monday and I plan to watch. I know that we are supposed to value ourselves highly -including purity -but this is ridiculous. I couldn't begin to know the reasons people do some of the things they do, but this seems immoral to me. Do you agree that it sounds cold and calculating?

Why should any man bit for her when there are enough women out there who will give it away for free?

Anything inaccurate in what I said?

I will watch the show if I am not working, but my opinion is that to each their own, I can't judge her without listening to her story first. I bet that Tyra found her interesting or she would not be on her show next monday.

If I know Tyra, ShellyB, she will do her best to talk her out of it. I'm sure it will boost her ratings though.

Hi worldwise, Yes I do agree that it sounds cold and calculating, but I find it more interesting that you are going to watch it! Therefore the girl has achieved an audience and is probably nothing more than a "professional" adult star. Virginity is very difficult to prove and without knowing too much about the details of this case, I would guess that the girl is not a virgin at all, but a con-artist. Regards Umart

I won't rehash the reasons why I want to watch the show, umart, because I don't like to repeat myself. From what I have learned she has had an audience long before I even heard about her, so I expect that many of those who watch will be for reasons like myself.

If she was a geisha, then won't be such a surprise. But then again, the geisha thing is long gone. Personally, I think she is an attention seeker or looking for fame. Well, people do stupid things and this one is no exception.

He to She-"Would you sleep with Me for a Million Dollars?" She- "I'd think about it..!" He-"How about $5?" She (Indignant) "What kind of Girl do you take Me for?!" He-"I thought we'd settled that..Now,We're Haggling!" It's a publicity stunt,pure and simple-She badly wants to become famous to go through with something like this..It's her life,Her business,Her body,not my concern,but I'm wondering what She wants to do for a follow up or as a career with this on Her Resume..? It sure sounds calculating..

I haven't read all the posts, the first ten were enough. What on earth is so fine about virginity? As a libertine, the last thing in the world I would want is a virgin. Purity- pwah! It seems to me that if she has set a decent reserve price, she is valuing herself very highly. Mind you, I have to wonder how someone who would think of doing this has managed to make it to 22, but hey. Cold and calculating? Perhaps, but what's your point? We live in a culture that instituionalises greed and profit-making, surely she's only following the capitalist dream? I hope Tyra (whoever she is) pays her a very high fee for appearing. Lash

It all depends on how much she gets LOL But she had better be prepared for an all nighter, because that is what it would be if I paid her for it. She would be mine for the whole damn weekend...LOL

But would you respect yourself the morning after, goldeneagle?All jokes aside, I don't think she would agree to that.

Well I wouldn't pay her for it anyways. There are too many women out there that will give it up for free. I wouldn't have a problem deflowering her if that is what she wanted though. She is going to give it to someone...may as well be me LOL

I agree with you that it's really shocking! However, we can't judge this young lady of immorality. Immorality sometimes goes with the culture or change in lifestyle. No one can be blamed, since there are so many reasons to justify this if we are going to ask her intentions. Though, really strange, and I myself can't believe that she is into virginity auction let's just respect her decision. Well, she seems old enough to face the consequences of her actions.

I see no reason to "respect her decision," ememCz, since her very actions smack of disrespect for the temple which is her body.

This sounds silly. Virginity for auction? She should be proud that she's still virgin especially in US. Because you can rarely meet ladies especially teens that are still virgin at the age of 14 or 15. Virginity is truly valuable but if that's what she really wants, well that's her decision.

It very well may be her decision, jstmarfz, but that doesn't make it a smart decision.

She kept it all those years why not wait for someone special. so baSICally she put money before her virginity!! Oh well i'm guessing she wasnt actually waiting till after marraige so why not auction it off and get money for it? But to do this i dont see the point of keeping her virginity all this time to auction it off and look even cheap.

I am still having a hard time understanding why she would make this so public, shamzy, unless she thinks that by doing so she will land a bigger fish.

Maybe she needs the money? One thing she is getting is attentions, not many of us can say our virginity caused that much uproar. I'm sorry but I just can't get to upset about this. So many girls give it away why not charge for it. After all in marriage you trade it for a life time of suppport and protections, Maybe? And look how that works out, 80 out of 100 divorced. Just one more weird thing about the times we live in.

What? I could have auctioned off my virginity and made money out of it? I never knew. I was 44 when I decided that it was time to stop being a virgin. I never knew I could have sold it. Hmmm I probably would not have as I was looking for man who was considerate and gentle in helping me through this. My problem came from a lifetime of waiting for a husband. Well it never happened. I was 44, told I was pretty, but still a virgin. I was sexually repressed, thanks to my mother and worried that I would die a virgin. Scary!! As it happens I was too old to get pregnant. I tried but now I am in menopause and a mother I will never be. I missed something important somewhere in my life. I would happily have been a stay at home mum but I never found the right man in time for my biological clock and now who cares. *sigh* All past history and I am also sick these days.

You waited a long time indeed, sharra! Still, you were better off sharing it with someone you cared about rather than a total stranger.

A Great idea! Why not sell it, as opposed to giving it away? As for her future mate- he will be better off having a woman of experience. I hope she puts a high price on her hymen. This could be construed as a Right of Passage sold to the Highest Bidder. A girls first time is usually hurtful, bloody, and tearful. I wish this enterprising Female the very best, and may God Bless and keep Her!

Even allowing that a girl's first time carries some discomfort, barehugs, I can't imagine wanting to share it with a stranger.

This bit of news is indeed shocking, as people - men and women - should only give their virginity to the people they truly love. It says a lot about the moral values of the woman, and her preference of making money over her purity is quite disturbing. I do wonder, if she gets only a few thousand dollars out of it, would that be the value of her dignity?

I think she is expecting to "hit the motherlode," Gmens. I'm betting that she is holding out for $1 million or better.

Is this true? This is the first time I heard such news. Is she that poor to auction herself? Well for me yes it is cold and immoral but what can we do? We do not control peoples life. Probably she has her reasons and most probably its poverty. She must be proud to be a virgin at her age but the sad part is its for sale .

I don't know, ChristLike. To me she is short on both pride and morals to even consider such a thing.

Sounds like prost*tution to me. I wonder if they are going to have a doctor there to prove that she is still a virgin.

Hey hey That just seems silly and makes me wonder what the girl is thinking . I would not want all that talk and what would people think of me . Ah, to sleep with someone i dont know and who just bid on me is strange and would not feel good about myself at all . Not a good way to remember a first time if you ask me . I wonder how high the bids will go and how safe it is . Wonder if she is even a virgin . Again what is she thinking . UGG !! all for money if you ask me not worth it at all because nothing after you collect will come good . just much stress and wn?oh i wish i wouldnt . but what can ya do really each their o

Very insightful, metschica! I also wondered if she will have to prove her virginity when the time comes to deliver.

Its just an unusual form of whoring. Selling is the same as auctioneering and if its your virginity then its practically the same. This could also be another publicity stunt. Think about it !

Yes, Bluepatch, it could very well be a publicity stunt, but in such poor taste!
