Natalie Dylan says that she’s just practicing capitalism. Auctioning off her virginity gives her the chance to capitalize on a very valuable commodity. How much are some folks willing to pay to pop her cherry? Well,according to Huffington Post, there are offers for up to $3.7 million! I’ve never heard of anyone selling their virginity before. But, this is not an uncommon practice in other parts of the world. Here’s more on the virgin auction from Digital Alchemy TV:
“Intriguingly, the 22-year-old San Diego woman, who already holds a B.S. in women’s studies, plans to finance her graduate school education in marriage and family therapy from the proceeds of the virginity auction. To prove her chastity, she will undergo a gynecological exam as well as a lie detector test.
Surprisingly, Natalie Dylan is entering into a not uncommon online marketplace. For instance, in 2007, 18-year-old Carys Copestake tried to sell her virginity for £10,000. In 2004, 18-year-old Rosie Reid, a lesbian student at Bristol University, auctioned hers off for £8,400. Oddly, British women are very over-represented although there are many other cases in other countries, including men who have sold their services online. Asked about her decision and doubters, Dylan replied, “We live in a capitalist society. Why shouldn’t I be allowed to capitalize on my virginity?”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here:(http://www.digitalalchemy.tv/2008/09/natalie-dylan-virgin-auction-photos.html
