Auction Sells Brazilian's Virginity for ... $780K

An Australian filmmaker's stunt to make a documentary about virginity—and the losing of it—seems to have worked in a big way: An anonymous Japanese man won an online auction with a bid of $780,000 to be 20-year-old Brazilian Catarina Migliorini's first lover, reports the Huffington Post. Migliorini gets to keep the money, though she has promised to give most to charity. Filmmaker Justin Sisely promises everything will be safe and legal, the latter by having the encounter on a plane to skirt prostitution laws. The auction also featured a male virgin, though Alex Stepanov got only $3,000. See HuffPost for more. (More virginity stories.)
