Why do you think is the auction being seen as immoral by some? Is it because they believe Catarina Migliorini is selling something that doesn’t belong to her?
The young woman is an adult, and she is able to choose what to do with her body, without being seriously stigmatised and being assaulted (or Honor killed) by those who find her choice unacceptable.
Who does a woman’s virginity belong to?
A Japanese man fended off strong competition from an Indian to secure a date with a 20-year-old Brazilian student, who sold her virginity for a $780,000 after putting it up for online auction for “charity”.
Catarina Migliorini, sold her virginity to Natsu who won against a big-spender from India, Rudra Chatterjee …
Migliorini’s move sparked outrage across the globe as she revealed that she would be followed every step of the way by an Australian crew for a documentary film called ‘Virgins Wanted’ .
The intercourse itself will not be filmed. Sex toys will be banned and a condom will be compulsory, with Migliorini saying she is ready to prove to any sceptic that she’s a virgin. Natsu will be tested for sexually transmitted diseases prior to the act.
Do you agree with this comment?
An insult to womanhood and a mockery on virgins!. Mr. Chatterjee should spend the saved bid amount on eradicating poverty in his state
Don’t you think this a mockery of the idea that sexual inexperience is something to be valued and bought?
Another comment. How do you think virgins benefit from preserving their virginity?
All the poverty stricken virgin girls in India (those who are willing) can try such stint. They will save themselves from rapes, prostitution, ill health or either sold off by parents for meagre amount or married to a drunkard for life. At least they can live life with better standards!
And another. How would you compare this auction to prostitution – from the young virgin’s point of view?
Not a bad deal for the girl. 15 minutes for $780,000. Prostitutes have to work a lifetime with all kinds of risk to earn that money. Seriously no woman is worth that kind of money, but in today’s world rich fools have a lot of money to waste….
Another reaction. Do you think this young woman’s mother or grand mother or great grand mother, who would not have dared to auction their virginity (at their own terms) were more empowered?
It is so sad to learn where the humans are moving to! … Your mother would [n]ever have dared to do it, so will you [ever] be [able] to think of tomorrow your daughter to do so. So, why you? It is a shame you Brazilian girl. You could have followed a Mother Teresa, Ann Franc, Malala, Dr. Annie Besant than going to this kind of stupidity in the name of charity. Those hapless people who will get your charity would be (may be) preferring to live life more harder way than accepting your malignly earned fund to curtail their hardship. And there are some shameless people around the world to dance according to this kind of monster’s music…
Another commenter feels spirituality could save young Indians from such shameless acts.
What (if at all) would you consider shamelessness/immoral in this auction?
