Felt this should be in the Enclave, so here you go, on the Telegraph:

She's whoring herself out for...

a masters degree in Family and Marriage therapy. Contradictory?

She's hot, how the hell is she still a virgin at 22?

Anyway, this is stupid. I can't believe someone would place such a low value on sex. No comments about money please, sex should be priceless.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Well it's certainly an effective way for paying for college....and hell of a lot of other things! :

It's strange...in one way you've answered your own question but that answer doesn't seem to apply in this case.

You're quite right, sex should be priceless. Hence I have no problem with the concept of someone still being a virgin at 22 if they're waiting for the right person...

But that's hardly what she's doing! Personally I find her actions rather tasteless and disgusting....but then I find much of today's culture regarding sex rather tasteless and disgusting so I've learnt not to get too worked up about it...

Still, you have to feel sorry for her poor father....what he must be feeling at this time I dread to think....

Incidently if anyone wants my virginity the going rate is 34. I've got a couple of hopefuls waiting in line though so you'll have to be quick with your offers.

Considering that her older sister was a prostitute for three weeks herself to pay her own college debts, and convinced the girl in question to do the auction, not to mention that this story originally broke back in September last year, I think he may be used to it by now... :

From what I recall, this gal isn't the first one to have done such an auction. By my recollection, another girl did it a couple of years ago; initially through eBay, but went private after they pulled her auction. An account I read of the actual night itself made for awkward reading.

To be honest, it's prostitution. You're selling your body for sex. You are offering a random, likely desperate, guy something which is only worth having if the two of you care for each other very much. If she wants to sell it, then that's her prerogative, but I do wonder if she'll look back, years down the line, and just wonder why she did it...

You'll give me 34? Hmm... you'll need to sweeten that deal a bit more before I consider taking you up on that... ;D

Huh. Well, it goes to show how different the Liberal Arts are from the Sciences. In the sciences you can usually pay your tuition and stipend by being a Teaching or Research Assistant. This seems a little fake to me. I can't really imagine any academic department that would want to deal with this sort of thing on their reputation. And it certainly isn't legal in California.

And women try to tell us they aren't objects...and then go sell themselves for millions of dollars. And I like how she tries to act confident and insist she isn't demeaning herself or any of that crap, too, what a load. And it's not "taboo", it's STUPID.

I really don't see how her vagina is worth $3.7 million at that, she's cute but I would never pay $3.7 million to sleep with ANYONE, even if I had an unlimited supply of cash and could literally throw away millions without ever having to worry about it. Never.

And that's a good point Khanaris, isn't prostitution illegal? Shouldn't she really be locked up (or was she already seeing as how this is apparently old)? I say they should also seize her millions and donate it to charity...namely my charity, the "All For Me" Fund.

Well, look at it this way...she may get her college paid for but she certainly isn't going to have an easy time getting a boyfriend now is she? What about a serious relationship for marriage. This is an unfortunate result of a male-dominated society which demeans women to simply sexual objects. If I had the money, I'd pay for her education and let her keep her virginity...perhaps requiring her to work with sexual assault or rape victims for a summer instead or some other environment in which she could learn to appreciate sexuality and what a privilage it is that she's been able to remain of virgin for 22 years.
