Catarina Migliorini sells her virginity for a good cause(!)

Catarina Migliorini, a 20 years old Brazilian women, rose to instant fame after her virginity is sold to a Japanese man for $780,000! She says she does it for charity, to help homeless people, but according to the organizer of the auction, which drew 15 bids from around the world, it was for profit and self-promotion. "I was surprised she said that because in all my dealings with her, she made it clear that it was a business decision for her," declared Australian filmmaker Justin Sisely. "Now, given how big this story is in Brazil, she's trapped. If she doesn't give any money to charity, she's going to look bad."[1]

The problem, or maybe not a problem for the young woman - sorry young soon to be woman, is that it will be difficult to find a charity which accepts money from someone who got it by selling herself. Although she claims that this is not prostitution because she is doing it for once, it is still prostitution and worse it is basically promoting one time basis of selling woman's body. Plus, if she was not this much hyped and known, she would sell her virginity again and again thanks to hymenorrhaphy, surgical restoration of the hymen. But the worst part of this story is that it is giving ultra high value to virginity, intactness of a membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal, when we are proceeding into 2000s.

So, what will happen now? Since the asset of Catarina Migliorini bought by the  Japanese man called "Natsu", the delivery will be done on a plane flying between Australia and USA. But before, both Natsu and Migliorini will be tested for sexually transmitted diseases.

The auction was done for a documentary called "Virgins Wanted". According to auction site (see the screenshot below), which currently stamps Catarina Migliorini as sold, 15 people bid for her. 1 from Japan, 3 from USA, 1 from India, one from Australia, 1 unknown and the rest were Brazilian. A jocker even bid $1 dollar (this a'int eBay bro!). According to The Terms & Conditions page, the female virgin is undergoing a medical examination by an accredited gynecologist and provide the winning bidder with medical evidence of her virginity.
