The Virgin scooped me on this (you little bastard), but it’s worth blogging about at the Honeyandlance Ranch, where we sell virgins cheap.
Natalie Dylan (not real name), a graduate student at Sacramento State University, is auctioning off her virginity for the cool price of $250,000. According to her, the money is going to pay off college loans and will create a lot of “financial stability” in her life. Well, no fucking shit sister, a quarter mil would create financial stability for pretty much any person ever. Also, last time I checked, grad school at Sac State didn’t cost $250k.
Predicably, there’s plenty of negative reaction to her stunt. See here, where Linda Fiori says:
Thanks for lowering the status and respectability of women and college students everywhere. Women have made so many strides toward independence and gender equality in recent years, it was about time someone took us a few steps back.
I actually like Natalie Dylan’s ploy for the following reasons:
1. There’s a market for the virginity of hot chicks, and Dylan is capitalizing on that. Sex and money, that’s the American Dream, baby.
2. The money, if invested properly, could set her up for life.
3. The notoriety, if leveraged properly, could be worth millions. Book deals and speaking engagements, anyone?
4. Since she’s a college girl, she could either a) lose her vcard to some douchebag at a frat party, or b) pick a carefully screened and interviewed partner that she knows everything about. This would maximize the experience. I would go further and say that the guy she picks will be nice to her before, during, and after the “date.” That’s more than you can hope for from a random college player.
The major problem I have with this whole escapade is…how do I put this delicately…attempting to articulate…Dylan isn’t hot enough to buy at that price!! I mean, at best, she’s an 8, and that’s one expensive lay.

Ladies and gents, would you sell off your vcard for $250,000?
