For Sale

In the news this morning: 22-year-old "Natalie Dylan" is auctioning off her virginity to pay for her college education. (Yes, you read that right). She says she doesn't think it will solve all her problems, but at least it will help her financial situation. Um, honey, if you are willing to sell your virginity, paying for school is the least of your problems.

She also says that she is looking for someone who is a "genuine, overall nice person" and not just the highest bidder. I have some sad news for her: Any man who would pay money to deflower an obviously out-of-her-mind college student is not a nice person. Sorry, nice guys don't go for prostitutes.

Maybe she's hoping this little rendezvous will blossom into a meaningful relationship? I don't know. I just know that this is quite possibly the most pathetic thing I have ever heard of someone doing. It's tragic that sex has lost all meaning in today's world.

And the saddest part is that these people have no idea what they're missing.

What?! That is ridiculous! I believe this little "stunt" will create way more problems than she could ever hope to solve. My goodness!

Oh. My. Goodness! That is outrageous! Sounds like a cry for attention, too. Where are her parents??? Poor girl. What is the world coming to?? All that is what's going through my head...
