To The Highest Bidder–Her Virginity

It’s an auction; an unbelievable auction; an auction for her virginity; an abysmal auction where the top bid now exceeds $3.7 million dollars. This disgusting business is going on down in San Diego where 22-year-old Natalie Dylan has notified the world that her virginity is for sale–up for the highest bidder. Why the sale? To fund her advanced degree in women’s studies.

Were Natalie looking toward a career in the basest of strip-joints, or lewd television production or in X-rated theatrical productions, it might be a touch easier to understand her actions, though even then, it would be most repulsive and shocking. But 22-year-old Natalie has much higher aspirations: She is going after a degree in family and marriage therapy. This story is so unbelievable as to sound fictional, but I assure you I am not making it up.

According to the London Telegraph, Natalie Dylan, a 22-year-old San Diego woman, said she got the idea for the auction after her sister was able to pay for her college education after prostituting herself for three weeks.

She told the Telegraph that she doesn’t think she’s the only one who will be benefit from the auction.

“I think me and the person I do it with will both profit greatly from the deal,” Dylan told the paper.

What a staggering, almost unthinkable, world we inhabit. A world whose morals and self-respect are handled with such casual regard and with little solicitude. A world dominated by money, greed, and self-gratification. A world raked with uneasiness and fear, for God created man to live on a finer plane. How quickly, and deeply, though, we have fallen.
