A World Gone Mad

A California college student is auctioning off her virginity to pay for her education in – of all things – Family and Marriage Therapy.   She already has a degree in Women’s Studies.  You can’t make this stuff up. 

Thousands of men have bid on the “prize” which, last time I checked, wasn’t even so highly regarded these days.  She’s 22, an adult, who can do what she wants and if she wants to get nearly $4 million for her “first time”, well, let’s call her a whore and be done with it, shall we?

Her inspiration? Her older sister who worked as a prostitute for 3 weeks to pay for her own degree. 

Natalie Dylan, the virginity auctioner, says she’s not objectifying or demeaning herself.  She’s merely selling her things! Why, if she had an antique armoir or an original painting by a master, well, that would go up on the auction block too.  But she doesn’t.  She’s willing to undergo a physical to prove that she’s intact and she’s insisting that it will be a one-night stand only.  No potential boyfriends need apply.

You are a result of the choices you make.  We all don’t make perfect decisions each and every time we’re faced with a dilemma but this one is going to stick with her forever.  She seems nonplussed by that fact.  One thing is certain.  There will be some interesting conversation at the family dinner table for years to come.
