    Teen Selling Virginity Online

    I guess it was only a matter of time before another young lady decided to try to see what her virginity can pull in on the market.

    Wearing a sleeveless pink top and standing next to a mirror showing her profile as she speaks, Bernardo announces to the camera, "Hi, my name is Rebecca. I'm here to auction off my virginity."
    Bernardo told CNN she made the offer because she was desperate to help her ailing mother. She heard about Catarina Migliorini, a Brazilian woman who reportedly sold her virginity for $780,000 on an Australian website seeking virgins. Migliorini has reportedly yet to finalize the deal and receive the money, and Brazil is reportedly investigating whether the website should be charged with human trafficking. Nevertheless, Migliorini has received widespread publicity and modeling contracts -- including a spread in Brazil's version of Playboy magazine.

    This is just sad. Both the attempt itself, and the circumstances leading up to it =/

    I don't know how I feel about news reports like this. On the one hand it might help her attract more offers as well as follow up deals. On the other, I fundamentally dislike sensationalising an event like this.

    I don't really have a problem with prostitution, provided those doing it are legally protected in the same way that other workers are.

    However, the bigger issue here is that our medical system is so ridiculously expensive.

    It should be noted that she's eightTEEN and legally an adult in most of the world.

    That's a rather shocking price.

    Hope someone is generous enough to pay the bill for her mom rather then she giving up her vag to a stranger, or a medical instituation doing it pro bono.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    So a misguided girl who has never had sex, and is selling her virginity to take care of her sick mother, is just a "whore being a whore?"
    It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.

    Someone already offered to do so. She turned them down because she wants a new house in another place for free on top of medical bills being paid. She obviously cares nothing for her mother after turning down that offer and is in this completely for herself.

    Since she turned down an offer from someone to pay those medical bills, yes. If that was her purpose she would have taken the offer.

    Again, she turned down someone willing to pay for her mother's bills. Go read the article. If she was in this to help her mother I might feel sympathetic, but instead she is just going for as much as she get forherself on top of that prolonging her mother's suffering.

    Okay, one more. She turned down someone who would pay for her mother. If she cared about her mother, she would accept that and end her mother's suffering.

    I really hope I don't have to edit this post more to respond to the people who didn't even read the article.

    personally i would be quite happy if prostitution was made legal. what a woman decides to do with her body is NOT the government's business.

    Prostitution is an indication of massive and egregious disparity within a society. It's saddening to see that a person must resort to it, even if it is for a good and just cause.
    “…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”
    XKCD is always relevant. Always.

    I read that as well, but apparently her neighbors know the situation better than either of us, and they feel for her. It mentioned several times that she feels she has no options. Maybe her area is terrible to live in and thinks they can make a better life for themselves if she gets paid more.

    Actually no. It still doesn't change the fact that she is a virgin, doing this to help her mother. She wants to get a new house for her mother and pay for medical bills. And with the money she makes, she will likely be able to.

    Exactly.

    I bet a lot of the bidders are Middle Eastern. Still a big misogynistic virgin obsession over there.

    Her body, her choice. If I could sell my virginity for that much money I would have and wouldn't have missed much.
