For Sale: My Virginity

Nope, not mine!

Hers.
Name: Natalie Dylan
Age: 22-y-o
Occupation: College Student
Claim to Fame: Auctioning her virginity to raise money for college tuition...

See CNN video here, or check r2.

Quote courtesy of the soon-to-be-deflowered 'entrepreneur':
I think empowerment to women is picking yourself up in order to better yourself...

Really??
Feminism?
Capitalism?
The beginnings of prostitution??

hey there!

i dunno, it could be a sexual fetish for some. yet, most guys i know wouldn't view a womens virginity as necessarily a sexy thing. just as us women would most likely prefer a man with a bit of experience.

in my opinion, it totally misses the mark. saving virginity is only meaningful as a way to place moral value on sexual relations.

I'm wondering who is going to hire her after she graduates. I mean, after she raises her tuition and gets the degree, she'll still hafta live with a ruined reputation... forever branded as the girl who auctioned her virginity to get through college... if that's empowerment, no thank you. And I dont care what anyone says, our mainly-Christian society will look down on that for years to come...

A coupla years from now kids come into the picture and... your momma sold her virginity to get thru college... ???

i agree ruthi. she should get student loans along with most other Americans. maybe we should mail her a Fanny Mae application.

It's her virginity to do as she pleases with. So if she decides to get some dough from her grand deflowering, then that's really her prerogative. As she said:
We live in a capitalist society, why shouldnt I be allowed to capitalise on my virginity.

But that doesn't mean she's doing anything noble or significant for the cause of female empowerment or feminism. After all, prostitution has been around from bible days.

A deflowered rose, that is for sale, is indeed a prostitute...

I didn't watch the video. I can't...I aint able!!!

I find it hard to believe that in this day and age, she waited until she was 22 to have sex with the highest bidder...just ridiculous.

Interesting. The geishas used to sell their virginity to the highest bidder to gain their freedom, I wonder if she used them as inspiration? Probably not actually...
