‘Capitalist’ student auctions off virginity

A 22-year-old woman who is planning to auction off her virginity in order to pay for her college tuition says she has no ethical hang-ups about the plan.

The woman, using the pseudonym Natalie Dylan, will auction herself through the website of the enormous Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel in the US state of Nevada.

“We live in a capitalist society … why shouldn’t I be allowed to capitalise on my virginity?” Ms Dylan was quoted as saying in the New York Daily News.

“I understand some people will condemn me … but I think this is empowering. I’m using what I have to better myself.

The pretty brunette has already finished her undergraduate degree in women’s studies at Sacramento State University and plans to start a master’s degree.

Speaking on shock jock Howard Stern’s New York radio show, Ms Dylan said she got the idea from a Peruvian woman who auctioned her virginity and received a $1.5 million bid.

The Peruvian woman did not go through with the plan.

Ms Dylan told Stern she would submit to a gynecological examination and lie detector test to prove she was really a virgin.

But she said she was not willing to let just any guy win the auction — price and personality would both come into the equation.

Stern denied initial reports that he was behind the auction, saying he only wanted to interview the girl about why she would do such a thing.

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch is a massive brothel, staffed by as many as 500 prostitutes, that calls itself “the de-virginising capital of America”.
