Student selling virginity to pay for masters degree

| 23 Comments | No TrackBacks
nataliedylan.jpgA 22-year-old California student is taking a rather unique approach to raising money for her masters degree.

She's auctioning off her virginity.

"Natalie Dylan, 22, claims her offer of a one-night stand has persuaded 10,000 men to bid for sex with her.

Last September, when her auction came to light, she had received bids up to $243,000 but since then interest in her has rocketed.

The student who has a degree in Women's Studies insisted she was not demeaning herself.


Miss Dylan, from San Diego, Calif., said she was persuaded to offer herself to the highest bidder after her sister Avia, 23, paid for her own degree after working as a prostitute for three weeks.

As you may have guessed, this is garnering quite a bit of interest in many circles. Dylan, for her part, expresses surprise that this type of stunt is attracting some odd inquiries.

"She said she had had a lot of attention from a wide range of men, including "weirdos", "those who get really graphically sexual about what they want to do to me" and "lots of polite requests from rich businessmen".

It's prostitution plain and simple and prostitution is illegal...she's a hooker and should sell it on craigslist like all the other w*ores

I dont see why not. If it helps her pay for college why the heck not. Its not like student loans are a good option. At least this way she is owned for a few minutes not the rest of her life.

Why not? high school teachers are TAKING girls' virginity and passing them... so why not profit a little?

Who cares, let her do what she wants. I'll bid $20

A 22 year old virgin? Really? This girl expects people to believe she got through college without having sex? Can she prove she's a virgin?

Her parents must be so proud . . . 1 daughter was a hooker for 3 weeks and daughter #2 is following in big sister's footsteps.

She has really bad skin under all that makeup.

The fact that she can publicly discuss this without shame shows the atmosphere we live in. Her sister already did it, something's not right with these girls. Hopefully, the next generation won't be subject to the same foolishness.

Skank. She should be arrested.

The indignation in these comments are really funny. Prostitution is the world's oldest profession and yet people are still acting like there is something wrong with this girl because she decided to profit from her sexuality.

Get off your moral high horses people. I guess she would be a much moral person to many of you if she gave it up after some man buys her dinner and a few drinks instead, right? Is she any worse than people who engage in casual sex with friends or one night stands or have a drunken romp that they regret the next day?

And yet look at all the moralists calling her derogatory names and calling for her to be in jail? Why? People pay for sex all the time. Whether its wealthy people with trophy wives that lavish them with expensive gifts or poor souls who have to pay prostitutes/escorts in order have some much needed companionship from members of the opposite sex.

I say good for her if that is what she wants to do. It's just sex. A simple, natural act that consenting adults engage in whether it be for pleasure or for profit. And hey since people are so caught up on "prostitution" and labeling her a "whore" she should film it and make a porn movie. Then it isn't prostitution, it's art.

Hopefully the next generation will treat sex and sexuality as something that isn't shameful or taboo and something that should be celebrated instead of attacked by judgmental nitwits who think they are better than others because they wrongfully believe their morals are "superior".

It's her body. Who cares? Do what you want.


This is so disgusting that I am getting ready to barf.

Natalie:

You are setting yourself up for God knows what out there. Where are your parents? Who brought you up to be this way? If you don't care, don't expect the next weirdo to care. Proceed at your own risk.

You need a psycholgical evaluation because this is not normal.

I have nothing against prostitution at all, and think it should be legalized. However, as the law stands right now, this would seem be against the law as it stands right now.

I don't care what she does, but selling her virginity to the highest bidder makes her a prostitute. If she doesn't care, I don't either.

I don't care what she does, but selling her virginity to the highest bidder makes her a prostitute. If she doesn't care, I don't either.

The joke's on the rest of the college girls. All they got were lies.

She would probably reject my bid anyway...

It's prostitution.

And Chicago tom- Being a thief is probably the oldest profession. Does that make it right or OK? You can't possibly believe you made any sense, do you?
BTW, porno is not looked at as art. It is looked as girls and guys having sex for money. Another form of prostitution.
Let's pretend you have a girlfriend, (i know it's hard,but try)would you want her having sex for money? What about your Mom or sister? If you say it is OK, it is not only your morals that are in question. It is your honesty.

Several questions: Will there be a legal contract for this? What happens if the winning bidder gets there, does the dirty deed, only to find out that she is NOT a virgin? Would a full refund be given?

This is a great idea for paying off the national debt!! Afew hundred thousand of those budget-conscious right-wing religious republicans could offer up their daughters and Presto!! (They'd probably even be the highest bidders.)

Is selling one's body for money prostitution...YES! Is prostitution illegal...YES. Just because we have the ability to do something, does not mean we should. What if this were your child?

How long will she spend in jail? $243,000 for a one night stand, and a couple week jail sentence doesn't sound so bad. plus she'll get an education for it. KUDOS!!! way to "work" the system.

oh man
its her body, her life
btw its fr her education(nice to c ppl want to study futher insted of dropping out and getting some random job)
btw u can prove ur a virgin by doing the hymen test
although its nt 100% true coz some girls can tear the hymen by playing sports or falling etc....and some can be born with out a hymen
but the real idiots are the guys who r paying a lot of cash fr this!!!!!

pl.call me on
