Brazilian College Student Auctions Virginity Online for $780,000
Only recently did I learn what the letters SMH in texting meant.
I can think of no better time to use them than when I see a story like this. This has been making quite a few headlines as of late, so perhaps you're already familiar with the story, but, if not, here's the gist.
A 20-year-old college student from Brazil decided to go online to sell her virginity to the highest bidder. She did so as part of a documentary/reality special that was thought up by an Australian film maker.
The bidding is over and a man from Japan is going to spend $780,000 for this. Sometime over the course of the next several weeks, Caratina and this man from Japan will be introduced while on an airplane. This plane will fly over international waters (so as to avoid any legal issues) off the coast of Australia for one hour....and that will be that.
For what it's worth, Catarina has pledged that 90% of the money will go to help build homes for poverty stricken people from her home town in Brazil.
Still, I don't know of anyway to morally justify this...do you?
