    Why? If any (female) strangers wanted to buy my virginity, I would have gladly sold it to them. And they wouldn't have had to pay me millions of dollars.

    I think there's a double standard for men and women at work here.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I worry for the decision young Natalie is making. She seems to think it is shameful to be a virgin at her age. Just because society doesn't seem to value virginity does not mean she should stop valuing hers. What she has is, IMO, special and sacred and should only be given to someone you love and trust. If that sounds old fashioned, then so be it. I must be old fashioned because I value what I have and if someone tried to take it from me, I would fight to the death. Virginity is something to be treasured. Once you give it away, you can never get it back. You can give it to the wrong person, but you can't ask for it's return.
    Make the right decision, Natalie, and wait for that special someone. Don't throw it away for a few million.

    In some people's minds perhaps, but not mine. I think prostitution is just as wrong and just as vile when the prostitute is male.

    I'd say she values hers quite a bit, having preserved it-- "technically"-- until the age of 22 and then deciding to auction it off. The problem is that she is placing monetary value on something that should not be a commodity to be sold or exchanged.

    I do not think virginity is anything special. Selling her sex, at any price, would be just as wrong if she were not a virgin. I think the reason this case merits special attention is the price she has successfully negotiated, on the basis that she is a virgin-- "technically"-- and the irrational value that so many people place on the first act of intercourse.
