A Brazilian student sold her virginity for a staggering $780,000 after she put it up for auction online, reports The New York Daily News.
Physical education student Catarina Migliorini has become the subject of 15 bids – the auction which is showed in details in a documentary film, Virgins Wanted, being made by Australian filmmaker Justin Sisely.
The 20-year-old beauty will be “delivered” to a man, who offered the highest price for her virginity – a Japanese man known only as Natsu – on board a plane between Australia and the US, and be interviewed before and after.
The ‘purchaser’ was challenged by American bidders Jack Miller and Jack Right, and a big-spender from India, Rudra Chatterjee, who also intended to secure a date with Migliorini.
The unusual auction was finished at 4 a.m. EST this morning, and the beauty promised to use the 90 per cent of given money to build homes for poverty-stricken families.
The young Brazilian’s move sparked speculations across the globe, with many people claiming she was little more than a prostitute.
The PE student was also criticized after she revealed she would be followed every step of the way by an Australian crew for a documentary film called “Virgins Wanted.”
Catarina explained: “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 continued: “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.”
“The auction is just business, I’m a romantic girl at heart and believe in love. But this will make a big difference to my area,” she told reporters.
However, the action itself will not be filmed and the Japanese will retain a right to be anonymous, without his picture revealed.
As reports claim, sex toys will be banned from use and a condom will be compulsory, with Catarina promising to prove any sceptics that she has not had sex before. Natsu and his the Brazilian beauty will be tested for sexually transmitted diseases prior to the encounter.
As the documentary film director Justin Sisely reports, the yet-virgin is ecstatic about the sale and had not expected this amount of interest.
“The auction closed at 10pm last night and Catarina is extremely excited. She was speaking to her family in Brazil online, and they were extremely happy for her,” he said. “But I guess they didn’t expect her to do something like this.”
Some media reports claim that Migliorini intends to donate some amount of the money to charity, but Sisley said that was not his understanding.
“Catarina said she’ll be helping out her family and friends in Brazil but it is all media speculation,” he explained.
“When we were talking last night about it, I told her it’s about setting up her life. Sure she’ll donate some money but it’s a lie she’ll donate the majority of her earnings.”
