Selling Virginity for a Cause!!


Sex has always been a taboo subject; it is viewed differently in every society. Recently Alina an 18 year old Romanian virgin surprised the world, auctioning her virginity on internet to a stranger to pay for her school fee.

It may seem good to few and many may raise their eyebrows, to me, in the end of the day it is the personal decision. Many may question, be it once or twice or thrice it is just like prostitution.

Selling sex is banned in many civilized societies be it US or Canada but sex with consent is a personal decision in free societies.

At times to me norms and values seem too subjective, it is at times very difficult to agree what majority preaches or one may defy majority and move on with his or her personal set of norms and values.

As human society is progressing and moving on, so is the social perspective towards sex and sexuality.

At times I fail to understand why women are subject to harsh social controls when it comes to sexuality, whereas men enjoy sexual freedom without any attached stigma.

Well, coming back to Alina, she spent the night with the Italian businessman after the mystery stranger bid £8,782 and flew her to a Venice hotel. Alina — who said she needed the cash to study computing at university — revealed. Alina, who underwent two medical examinations to prove she was a virgin, admitted: “I felt a bit nervous.” But she said of her first sexual experience: “I liked it.”
The petite Romanian added: “I hoped I'd meet a nice man, like in the film Pretty Woman. The teenager from Caracal insisted: “It’s not like prostitution because it was a one-off — and I did this for good reasons.”
