This is all kinds of wrong. Please tell me it's a publicity stunt? "Natalie Dylan" (not her real name, cuz, you know, she'll auction off her virginity but not reveal her name!) wants to "capitalize on her virginity" by auctioning it off through the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada. Does it make it OK that it's so she can go to grad school to become — wait for it — a family and marriage counselor? I mean, look, I'm no conventional prude, but there are more dignified ways of making money. (She's gotta go through a virginity test first!) Also, do women really need to reinforce the idea they're objects to be bought and sold? If she is indeed a virgin, is this really how she wants to remember her first time? I find the whole thing more sad than anything. Thoughts?
Thanks, eBaum's World!
