First of all I am glad she is a virgin, or so she claims. I am also elated that she wants to help the poor but her approach is just not so appropriate. Virginity and sex are two sacred things that shouldn’t be trivialized or monetized for whatsoever reason. If it wasn’t towards a ‘noble’ cause, I’d call it pornography right away but then, it’s her body, her conscience and integrity at stake and so she can do as she please.
In order to assist poverty stricken families by helping them build better homes, Catarina Migliorini, a Brazilian student, is auctioning off her virginity to the highest bidder for cash.
The 20 year old physical education student is set to plough the money – currently standing at $155,000 (£95,400) – into a non-governmental organisation which will construct modern houses in her southern Brazilian home state of Santa Catarina. Already been labelled a prostitute, she rejected the toga as she said she still believed in love but saw the opportunity to make a positive difference to the world.
Catarina, who is of Italian descent said : ‘I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it. If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute, just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer.”The auction is just business, I’m a romantic girl at heart and believe in love. But this will make a big difference to my area,’ she told Folha newspaper.
The winner will be tested for sexually transmitted diseases prior to the encounter which will take place on an aeroplane, leaving from Australia to the US, in a bid to circumvent prostitution laws.A condom will be compulsory, with Catarina saying she was prepared to prove to any sceptics that she has not had sex before.
