Here’s a nice piece of offbeat news for the day.
22-year-old college graduate Natalie Dylan, who is looking to pursue a career in sex therapy, is currently making the news for auctioning off her virginity.
She appeared on The Tyra Banks Show and spoke about it for the first time on camera with Tyra.
The picture above is Natalie and a 59-year-old guy that is currently bidding on taking her virginity.
She says she has received bids ranging between $1 million and $3.8 million from more than 5,000 men, including bids from a rock star and a famous actor.
Here’s what she says about her decision to auction off her virginity:
“We wanted to study the dichotomous nature between virginity and prostitution. There’s really been so few case studies of it…I stumbled upon this article of a Peruvian woman who wanted to sell her virginity and she was offered and exorbitant amount of cash…$1.5 million.”
On how this is not like a regular auction:
“It’s not like an eBay auction…I don’t have to take the highest bidder. I’m taking time to get to know the guys. We contact each other back and forth.”
On people having a distorted view of virginity:
“I think people misconstrue virginity with being prudes. I’m definitely not; I’m very open-minded to what they want to do…I think this is about being pro-choice with your body.”
And about her willingness to engage in different positions:
“I’m selling my virginity, it’s a one time thing and I’m definitely willing to work with them.”
On having the option to back out of the deal:
“I completely plan on following through with this act.”
