Be a prostitute…for a day…for charity…we won’t mind

You may have heard the story of 20 year old Catarina Migliorini who is currently auctioning off her virginity. For one night only, the Brazilian belle is prepared to relinquish her chastity to the highest bidder. And why has she decided to do this? So she can raise cash to build homes for poverty-stricken families. Awww, isn’t that just precious? What a philanthropist.

Clearly the opportunities for coitus with unsullied women have become few and far between if men are prepared to pay for such an opportunity. And this isn’t the first time we hear of someone selling the breaking of their hymen for a cash sum. Remember 18 year old Romanian Alina Percea who, in 2009, sold her virginity online for around US$13,000? Or 19 year-old “Unigirl” who sold hers for over US$35,000 the following year? Both girls said they did it to raise tuition for university. Awww, isn’t that just precious? What an ambitious pair.

Like the other girls, Catarina (whose highest bid is currently US$255,000) is quick to point out this isn’t prostitution. She puts it this way: “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.” Awww, isn’t that just precious? What a whore.

Yeah I said it. Sex in exchange for money makes you a whore. Do I have a problem with people choosing to be whores? Not one bit. The key word there is “choosing”. It’s your life, it’s your choice. As much I loathe the expression YOLO, it’s true. You do only live once. So live your life how you want. Long as you don’t hurt others or yourself, I respect your right to do what you want with your life.

What I do have a problem with is people playing the “I’m doing it for the poor, so I’m not a prostitute” self righteousness card. Just because someone says “it’s for my tuition”, we excuse them but we are quick to chastise women who sleep with wealthy men just for their money, or those like Wen, the Chinese girl who was also looking to sell her virginity for an iPhone 4 (make sure it’s the white 16GB model if you’re interested). It’s all whore-rishly the same as far as I’m concerned.

That said, well done Catarina on your desire to build homes for the poor…though I’m sure some of them would rather have you ☺

    A girl acts in a pornographic film and has sex with 7 guys. She pockets an emolument afterwards. Does this make her a hooker?

      Good question! In porn movie, people are actually having sex. An emolument means she’s getting paid for sex. Which, in my opinion, makes her a hooker.

      But you know what, I may be wrong because being a prostitute usually involves some sort of solicitation right? Which would mean the porn star isn’t a hooker.

  2. I don’t think what the woman is doing is so bad, I mean, it’s her choice and it’s rather clever. The joke is on the men who would pay such large sums to get a virgin piece of ass. She’s capitalizing on her sexuality for herself and others. I think it’s badass. It’s a bit whore-ish yes, but there are worse things happening in the world. She’s not stealing, lying, or cheating her way to raise money, it’s an honest means. She should suck ’em for all it’s worth!

      I totally agree that it’s her choice. People should be allowed to do what they want with their lives. And yeah you’re right, she’s clever making money out of something that millions of people choose to give away from free.
