World’s highest-paid whore

A student who is auctioning her virginity to pay for a masters degree in Family and Marriage therapy has seen bidding hit £2.5million ($3.7m).

This is truly bizarre, on many levels. Virginity, outside of any context, is simply a lack of experience, and if it has any value, it’s a negative one. And virginity is valued in the J-C-I religious tradition in relationship to marriage, which this is definitely not about. Would you take marriage therapy from somebody who had sold herself for almost $4m? I guess that depends on your view of marriage, eh?

Since there’s no context to value virginity, these guys are bidding at having first crack at a prostitute — and an inexperienced prostitute at that. And no, her retirement after her first trick doesn’t change that reality. And where are they bidding? She’s from San Diego; isn’t exchanging money for sex illegal in every state in the union? How does Ms. Dylan know that she’s not being set up for a prostitution sting, and that the virtually unlimited coffers of government aren’t behind the dizzying heights of the bidding?

Now, I don’t get a say in whether she’s a whore or not, or whether men want to pay too much for her services. Everybody gets to go to Hell in their own way, if they want to. I’d try to show her a different way. I’m just saying that there are some strange and unexamined values at work here.

    Reminds one of the old joke: Man asks girl if she would sleep with him for a million dollars, She answers “of course”. He then asks, “would you sleep with me for 20 bucks”? “She answers, in a huff, What do you think I am”? He retorts “We’ve already established that, we are haggaing price now.”

    The version I’ve seen runs a little different, and involves George Bernard Shaw and an English high society lady.
    GBS: Will you sleep with me?
    EHSL: Not for a million pounds!
    GBS: Oh, then it’s only a question of the price!
