When 20-year old Catarina Migliorini decided she was going to join Australian filmmaker Justin Sisely’s Virgins Wanted documentary she knew what she was getting into. She was willing to sell her virginity to the highest bidder. But did she realize just how much money it would go for?
Probably not. After all bidding was done Migliorini’s virginity was sold to a Japanese man, known only as Natsu, for $780,000. It’s money the student says is going to help her start an NGO to build houses for the poor in her village. However, Sisely says that’s not what she told him.
“”I was surprised she said that because in all my dealings with her, she made it clear that it was a business decision for her,” he tells media. “Now, given how big this story is in Brazil, she’s trapped. If she doesn’t give any money to charity, she’s going to look bad.”
According to the rules Migliorini’s being tested to insure she is indeed a virgin, the intercourse must last no less than one hour, and it will happen “somewhere it’s not illegal” which Migliorini says will be in a private airplane. That might not mean Sisely and his Virgins Wanted website / project won’t be prosecuted.
The Daily Mail reports that after word of the sale hit Brazilian media, attorney general, Joao Pedro de Saboia Bandeira de Mello Filho, has ordered an investigation into the documentary project and is looking at charging Sisely with human trafficking.
Also involved in the project was a young man by the name of Alexander Stepanov whose highest bid was from a Brazilian woman for $3,000.
