Brazilian woman sells virginity for $780,000

By losing something, Catarina Migliorini could gain $780,000.
The 20-year-old Brazilian woman has been auctioning off her virginity online for the past few weeks. A man from Japan known as "Natsu" came out on top with the winning bid.
Natsu beat out five other bidders after a final day where the price of Migliorini's virtue jumped from $190,000 on Oct. 23 to $780,000.
The site also auctions off male virginities. Migliorni's male counterpart, Alex Stepanov, only received a bid of $3,000 from a woman in Brazil named "Nene B."
Migliorini, a physical education student, has claimed to media that she plans to donate as much as 90 percent of what she makes to charities that will build homes in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina.
"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," Australian filmmaker Justin Sisely told The Huffington Post recently. "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."
Sisely plans on making a documentary about the event.
We're asking Facebook fans this morning how they feel about this outrageous stunt. Should a website that auctions off virginity be illegal? Is this prostitution?Chime in now!
