Who's got time for that?
Glad you have a high opinion of yourself, Dalt.

IMO, if she wants to get money for something that would otherwise be a pretty shitty experience 75% of the time, good for her!

Yes. Axver would not be the leader on this forum if there were less of a difference.

This publicity stunt may help her pay for her education now, but it could quite possibly cost her employment opportunities in the long run if media coverage of this story keeps growing...

the ironic thing, of course, is that she's a women's studies major.

Hey, she's gotta lose it sometime. Not that I'm saying I agree with what she is doing (I agree with Corianderstem that its basically whoring), but this girl can't be a virgin forever. And someone's gotta do it for her. How else would she lose it? That guy might as well be thankful he deflowered someone, it could be an ego boost for him, even if its no longer cool to have sex with virgins.

You know, the old fashioned way?

As much as I agree that should happen, but honestly, how often does it happen? Especially at her age?

Now, I'm not criticizing her for being a virgin at age 22; I actually know a girl who's still a virgin at age 26. She's not waiting for marriage, she's waiting for the right guy. But sadly, most guys today want sex by the third date, have the same attitude towards virgins as Dalton does, and mature virgins are seen as freaks by our society. My friend - and this girl we're discussing - face a lot of problems with our sex crazed society, and I feel really sorry for them. Sometimes my friend thinks about giving up her virginity to any guy just for the hell of it.

She's using her body as a commodity in exchange for cash. Women have stripped their way through school. I'm sure some have prostituted themselves, too.

I just don't see the big deal. Some people don't attach sentimental importance to their virginity. She seems to be one of those. Unlike stripping or prostitution in the typical manner, it sounds like this will be a one time thing for her. I do find it a little squick-worthy that she's widely advertising her intentions, but if she's willing to live with the potential fallout... And good luck to her in reaching her million dollar goal. I could be wrong, but I'd say she's overreaching, there.

Nobody's interested?

I'll throw in my sense of decency at no extra charge.

I was thinking about that as well. I do think there's a line between stripping and actual prostituting - one's selling the fantasy of sex, the other is just flat-out prostitution. On the other hand, most of those student strippers aren't going into a media outlet to say "Hey, I whore myself out to get money for school. Any takers?"

Now, obviously this girl is okay with doing this. Great! Fab. Yay for her, yay for the money she'll get for her fine education.

How long do you think before she regrets it? Five years from now, how many times will she have heard, "Oh, I know your name. You're the one who sold her virginity. Ha ha ha!"

Or "Yes, we found lots of interesting information about you on Google. I don't think we'll be hiring you."

As for this:

I can completely understand this line of thinking, but you know, it's a hell of a long way from having sex just to get it over with to selling your virginity to the highest bidder.
