Girl auctions off virginity for tons of cash, proclaims she is not being taken advantage of, and concludes with amazement that people would bid so high to help her lose it:
She added: “It’s shocking that men will pay so much for someone’s virginity, which isn’t even prized so highly anymore.”
Rebecca wonders: Is it bad that I’m only semi-outraged at this? So many teenagers have so much sex for so many foolish, empty, short-sighted or just daffy reasons – doing it to raise money isn’t any more morally bankrupt or disturbing, in my opinion, than high school orgies, sex with a stranger while massively drunk, or any number of other things (which is to say, very disturbing).
Not that I’m endorsing this at all. It just seems only a little bit surprising and transgressive, given what’s become the norm these days.
