Woman is selling her virginity to help poor people

20-year-old Brazilian beauty Catarina Migliorini is auctioning off her virginity and most of the proceeds will go to providing housing to the poor in her native town of Santa Catarina in Brazil.

She’s not the only virgin auctioning off her first time; this whole deal is part of an Australian documentary film project called Virgins Wanted. A man, Alex Stepanov, is also auctioning off his purity, but his current bid is only $1300 to Catarina’s $190,000 (that’s a 15,000% difference!)

According to The Daily Mail, Catarina will receive $20,000 AND 90% of her auction price, and she plans to donate most of those earnings to build housing for those in need.

Catarina insists that selling off her virginity doesn’t make her a prostitute, and that she couldn’t pass up this amazing opportunity. She told Brazilian newspaper Folha:

“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.”

Catarina replied to an advertisement from Thomas William Productions two years ago, and Justin Sisely will film her emotional reactions before and after the encounter, which will take place mid-flight on an airplane to circumvent prostitution laws. The winner of her virginity will receive a full round of STD tests beforehand, and a condom will be used.

The auction ends October 15, so place your bids now!
