Brazilian student sparks outrage after selling virginity online for $780,000 to raise money for poor families
Is there anything you can't buy on the internet? It would seem not...
A 20-year-old Brazilian student has reportedly sold her virginity in an auction to raise money for charity.
Catarina Migliorini looks set to raise a staggering $780,000 after she sold her virginity to a Japanese man called Natsu.
The physical education student, who claims she will use the money to build homes for poverty-stricken families, received 15 bids.
The victorious bidder from Japan, managed to win despite competition from Americans Jack Miller and Jack Right, and Indian big-spender Rudra Chatterjee
Migliorini, who has sparked outrage across the globe amid claims she is prostituting herself, is being filmed throughout the process by an Australian crew for a documentary film called Virgins Wanted.
In response to critics she said: '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,' she told Folha newspaper.
The Australian documentary will also feature Alex Stepanov, a 21-year-old Australian student, who sold his virginity for $3000 to a Brazilian woman called Nene B in an auction.
Catarina Migliorini signed up to the project two years ago when she saw an advert by Thomas Williams Productions.
Independent Voices ran a survey to ask readers their views on selling sex for money. 17% of respondents admitted they had visited a prostitute, but 57 per cent said they would lie about it to their partner if they had.
