Last September I blogged about a young graduate from my local California State University in Sacramento who decided to auction off her virginity to pay for graduate studies.
Now she’ll be able to pay for a little more than school. Bids for a night with Natalie have just grown up to 3.7 million dollars. So far, 10,000 men have bid to have sex with her.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at her little venture. Isn’t that what our society is teaching our kids? Take your clothes off, and get paid! We encouraged Jennifer Anniston (and I quote, “I applaud her”) when she did it. Britney’s video goes number one when she does it. The message is clear. Skin pays!
I think the ironic part of this whole matter is the intent behind this whole endeavor. 22 year old Natalie wants to become a marriage and family counselor.
Maybe this will get men to become more interested in seeing a counselor.
“Sorry honey, I’m going to be late for dinner. I’m going to be seeing my therapist again.”
“Why are those bills so expensive dear?”
Natalie, with a degree in Women’s Studies (I’m not even going to make a comment about that one), insists that she’s not demeaning herself.
The last line of this particular article is classic. I gotta give Natalie points for getting this one thing right. Natalie concludes:
“It’s shocking that men will pay so much for someone’s virginity, which isn’t even prized so highly anymore.”
