WHILE THE POOR HAVE NOTHING TO SELL BUT THEMSELVES
Doug the Bass contributed this definite sign of the times, but I do recall some years ago how a English girl played the same scam. The story was posted on Doc40 and we got deluge on inexplicable hits from Dubai and Borat locations like Turkmenistan. I had vision of nomad herdsmen sitting in their lonely yurts with laptops, Googling “virgin”.
“A Sacramento State grad is auctioning off her virginity to help pay for her graduate studies, and bidding is up to $250,000. The 22-year-old who is using the pseudonym Natalie Dylan is making the sale through the Bunny Ranch in Carson City, after eBay rejected the auction. Dylan says she's already taken a polygraph test to prove her virginal status, and is also willing to undergo a medical exam. Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof says Dylan is a bright, beautiful young woman who's wants her first time to be a positive experience. "Natalie is a very smart girl. All she wants to do is get her master's degree in family and marriage counseling and be a psychologist. She's selling her virginity to accomplish that. This is empowering her."So far, hundreds of offers have already come in including some from male virgins. Natalie says she won't give up her virginity to the highest bidder. She's also seeking other qualities from her first lover. "I'm looking for intelligence and an overall nice person," said Dylan who found herself in a financial bind, because her stepfather allegedly used her college status to fraudulently apply for student loans, and then ran off with the money.” Natalie, after claiming to have kept her virginity intact for 22 years (although the Bunny Ranch website claims she is 21-years-old), she says she has a commodity not many people have to sell. "When I was younger, I wanted 100% romance, possibly even wait for marriage. But as I grew up, reality kinda hit. And I think its a capitalistic society and I want to capitalize on this," explained Dylan.”
