A young woman living in the USA is set to auction her virginity for $400,000 to help her family following a house fire.
CNN reports that Katherine Stone, a 20-year-old, who left Seattle to work in one of Nevada’s infamous legal brothels after spotting an advertisement on Facebook, is advertising her virginity for an equivalent of N126million in Nigeria’s currency.
She says she won’t accept a bid however unless she feels a ‘connection’ with the person who intends to purchase.
Katherine, who dreams of one day becoming a lawyer, planned to sell something other women working at the bordello couldn’t offer: Her virginity.
Speaking to CNN, she said:
“People say you are supposed to do it for love. But if you think about it, I am doing it because I love my family.”
“I’m waiting for a man who I feel a connection with so that the experience can be special for both of us.
“I have the right to choose what I do with my body. And in this troubling economy, do you blame me?”
Stone struck up a deal with brothel tycoon, Dennis Hof in which she could sell her virginity at his brothel as long as he gets a 50% cut.
Until then, she works at the brothel and offers non-intercourse services to raise money for her family who didn’t have insurance when the fire destroyed their home.
Even after her virginity is auctioned, Stone says she has no intentions of leaving the ranch.
“I anticipate to continue working at the ranch for the next five years,” she says. “I plan to go to law school in the future.”
