Student auctions virginity for documentary

2012-10-25 10:06

Sydney - A Brazilian student has sold her virginity in an online auction for $780 000 as part of a documentary organised by an Australian filmmaker, reports said on Thursday.

Catarina Migliorini, aged 20, was the subject of 15 bids, with a Japanese man named only as Natsu winning on Wednesday night, Australian media reported.

They said Migliorini would be "delivered" to her buyer on board a plane to Australia and that she would be interviewed before and after losing her virginity at a secret location.

Filmmaker Jason Sisely, who reportedly began his project in 2009 and caused outrage when he put posters up in Sydney and Melbourne saying "Virgins Wanted", said Migliorini was ecstatic and had not expected such a high level of interest.

"The auction closed last night and Catarina is extremely excited. She was speaking to her family in Brazil online and they were extremely happy for her," he told Australian online news site Ninemsn.

"But I guess they didn't expect her to do something like this."

'I'm not a prostitute'


He said the act would be consummated, but not filmed, in the next few weeks.

"We will fly over the winner to Australia and obviously, for the sake of the film and privacy, we can't disclose where and when the act will take place," he said. "I have to leave some details for the documentary."

According to Britain's Daily Mail, Migliorini's decision to sell her virginity to the highest bidder has sparked outrage across the globe, with some claiming she was little more than a prostitute.

But she defended the move.

"I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it," she was quoted by the Mail as saying.

"If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute, just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer."

Sisely told Ninemsn that under the terms of the auction a condom was compulsory and Natsu must be tested beforehand for any sexually transmitted diseases.

"I'm looking forward to my audience's response to the film," he said.

  • allcoveredinNinjas - 2012-10-25 11:12

    Would you take one from a unknown Japanese business man for, +- R6m ? I bet you'd at least think about it. Indecent proposal or is getting hammered and partaking in a one-night stand to get your jollies on a more moral act.

  • thinus.brits.1 - 2012-10-25 11:23

      bones.mine - 2012-10-25 14:52

      Most certainly not Einstein material. Do you think this way about you female family too?

  • moi.carla.1980 - 2012-10-25 12:34

    Definitely not something I would want one of my daughters to do. But hey, if her parents approve and she is obviously ok with it, who am I to judge?

  • kyle.naidoo.5011 - 2012-10-25 13:07

    to you morally rightous ,ever heard of live and let live , or better yet, let he without sin cast the first stone , or judge leaset ye be judged.

  • voldoverse - 2012-10-25 23:48

    What probably bothered me the most is her saying its better than getting in done when drunk. is that really the only 2 options left?? drunk sex or sell your virginity sex? shes a pretty girl, she could have easily met guys, go on dates, fall in love, that kind of stuff, by no means am i saying marry the first guy you fall in love with and lost your virginity to but that just seems more like a life experience than selling it off to the person creepy/crazy enough to fork out 6mil just for a 1 time virginity experience?? I would have rather "lost it" to a love lost and living than selling it off to a creep....
