Catarina Migliorini is a Brazilian student who placed her virginity up for auction on eBay on October 15 for a mind-boggling $780,000. Think there weren’t any takers? Well guess again! A Japanese man named Natsu fought off other high rollers to win Migliorini’s prized possession, reports the New York Daily News.
The auction which ended on Wednesday morning had 15 bids. Men of wealth such as Jack Miller, Jack Right, a man from India, Rudra Chatterjee, are among those who vied for the physical education student’s, err…unspoiled wares.
News of Migliorini’s unique auction spread like wildfire, many who heard about the sale viewed the young woman as a prostitute. She also caused quite a stir when she leaked the news that an Australian camera crew would be ‘tailing’ her for a documentary film entitled, “Virgins Wanted.” Migliorini signed up for the project two years ago when she saw an advertisement by Thomas Williams Productions looking for a virgin to film.
Margliorini’s attitude towards her core group of ‘hatahs’ is that of benign neglect:
“I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it. 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,” said the young beauty, according to the Daily News.
The stipulation of the ‘deal’ involves Margliorini being delivered to her bidder via plane from Australia to the U.S. The film crew plans on capturing Margliorini’s emotions before and after her first sexual encounter. The act itself will not be filmed and Natsu’s picture will not appear in any of the film’s promotions. The ‘taker’ wants total anonymity. Other interesting prerequisites that Margliorini insists upon is that there will be no sex toys involved and condom use is mandatory. Natsu will also be tested for sexually transmitted diseases before the romp can take place.
As far as any naysayers with regards to Margliorini’s virginal declaration, she is more than ready to prove it.
Meanwhile, Margliorini wants to plough most of the money she’ll earn into a non-governmental organization that will help to build modern homes in her impoverished town of Santa Catarina.
