An American medical student is auctioning off her virginity to the highest bidder, and although the top offer currently stands at $550,000 – she says she does not need the money.
Using the alias “Elizabeth Raine” and operating a blog entitled, “Musings of a Virgin Whore,” the 28-year-old self-proclaimed virgin said she is willing to submit to a medical examination or polygraph as proof to the winning bidder, which will be determined when bidding concludes on May 7.
The blonde “Med School Virgin” writes that she has attended “excellent private schools,” has a bachelor’s degree and is currently a student in a combined MD/PhD program at a “leading university.” The auction website “About Me” section says that she was born in the U.S. but spent much of her time growing up abroad.
She writes on her blog that she is not using the auction “to earn status, money, or feed my own ego.” However, she does note that she obviously wants the financial benefit.
Her height is listed as 5’10” and her weight as 130 lbs, with blonde hair and green eyes.
“I approach people with warmth and curiosity, and I am careful not to overlook anyone. I have found the most complex and wonderful individuals are rarely the most obvious ones,” reads one of her self-described details.
“I hate to plan life, and instead embrace its mysteries and twists, in addition to its breathtaking moments,” she describes, although she said she has been planning the auction for one-year and is “more educated about prostitution, virginity and slut-shaming.”
Nevada is currently the only state in the U.S. where prostitution is legal. She will reportedly engage in the sexual intercourse in Australia as a way of circumventing American prostitution laws.
In the course of a self-interview posted to the website, Raine says she does not care about being labeled a prostitute by some, and she describes that while she does not advocate prostitution she supports the “decriminalization and destigmatization” of the world’s oldest profession.
She quotes late comedian George Carlin’s thoughts on prostitution: “Why should it be illegal to sell something that is perfectly legal to give away?”
She says she has no “moral objection” to the auction, and says she operates from her own moral code “founded on a world of education and human emotion.” She writes that her virginity “has never been anything less than a source of personal freedom and power, even prior to placing it up for auction.”
