Every few years, a girl decides to auction off her virginity, and every time, it launches a serious debate between those who think it’s a horrible decision she must be protected from and those who think it should be well within her rights to capitalize on her body. The latest to renew the shouting is Catarina Migliorini, a twenty-year-old from Brazil, and there are two tidbits that make her case a whole lot more interesting.
First, Migliorini and a male virgin are being followed around and filmed for an Australian documentary called Virgins Wanted. Both of the title participants will be recorded outlining their expectations prior to the sexual encounter and immediately afterwards. Second, the girl has announced she will donate the money to an organization that constructs affordable housing for the poor in her region of Santa Catarina.
According to The New York Daily News, the sexual encounter, if it comes to fruition, will go down during a flight between Australia and the United States in order to avoid prosecution laws. At this point, however, the tryst should still be considered an “if”. A healthy percentage of these virginity auctions don’t wind up going through, whether because someone gets cold feet or because the organizers get hit with a ton of pressure to halt.
Bidding for Migliorini is currently up to $160,000. Not surprisingly, the male hasn’t attracted even ten percent of that total.
