A Brazilian teenager is selling her virginity online in a bid to buy her Mum a new house.
Rosalie Pinho, 19, from Minas Gerais, says she has already received a bid of £438,000 from one possible suitor which will give him 12 hours with her. However, she hopes that figure goes up by the end of May when the ‘auction’ ends.
Unsurprisingly there has been a pretty negative online backlash against her move since she said she was going to take this course of action. However, she says she has no intention of thinking again.
I’m doing this for my family,” she said.
“There are seven of us; my mum, my two brothers, three sisters and me.
“After my father left us 10 years ago, things got very difficult.
“Only my older brother works, he gets about £145 a month and he can hardly pay the bills.
“We survive off a single meal a day, usually rice with something small to bulk it out.”
We all know that for many young people losing their virginity can be a stressful thing. Still, Rosalie is relaxed about it, and even describes the auction as ‘invigorating’.
“I cannot think of a better way to lose my virginity, almost every girl I know would rather change the night of her first time for such a sum of money,” she added.
The set the initial value of her virginity at €300,000 (£263,000). But while she’s already got that bid of €500,000 (£438,000), Rosalie is hoping to get it up to €850,000 (£745,000).
Although she will want the lucky man to take an STI test, she realised that they may not give her correct results. Therefore she will make him wear a condom as part of the deal.
She said: “There is no way to know if they [lied about their] results, so I also included the use of a condom [in the rules].”
Quite unsurprisingly, she has kept it pretty quiet from her family up to now.
“My mother will know when the time comes,” Rosalie said: “She will be disappointed, but in time she will understand.
“I do not have much contact with my father, I don’t intend to tell him.”
I have to say, I am always a bit sceptical when it comes to these kind of stories. Will the beautiful woman call it off last minute when she has garnered enough publicity to get herself a modelling contract?
A Matter of Choice
But lets work off the basis this isn’t bullshit for a minute. Is losing your virginity for megabucks OK? Well in the end, for me, it is up to the individual as to how they use their body, and in a free society she can do what the hell she wants.
However, she may be fit, but she is no better than any of the women you see on our pages, and you don’t have to pay near a million to spend time with them. For me the maths just doesn’t add up. Either Brazilian rich men are stupid or this is all a bit of self publicity. I am not confident of either!
