From selling of empty boxes and strands of Justin Bieber's hair to used female panties for sexual purposes, one can only wonder how much weirder of a world we actually are living in.
Then BAM. You come to know that some even go to shocking lengths to sell their virginity to the highest bidder. And to think that there are some men out there who would happily pay millions to deflower, there are three words that instantly come to mind:
What The Fuck
Just recently I chanced upon a video on YouTube. It was an interview of an 18-year-old, Alexandra Kefren, who hails from Romania. Her goal? To sell her virginity to a wealthy stranger for a whopping million euros(in minimum).
I gasped, wondering if people were actually that stupid to throw their cash around. Hopefully not.
To my horror, I later discovered a Hong Kong business had actually invested a hefty $3.47 million dollars just to... deflower her.
Call it crazy but some of the reasons Alexandra gave was that she needed that money to buy her family a house and for her tuition fees. Apparently, her dream was to study in Oxford University in the field of Business Marketing. Subsequently, she would own a business of her own.
I laughed. Oxford... Was this woman actually for real?
Another explanation for having put up her precious virginity for auction was that she didn't want to face the risk of her virginity going to waste because a partner may not be forever. And that at least by selling it off, she's at a major advantage thus having utilised it fully.
Yes, this is a very touchy topic but here's my two cents anyway. Thing is, Why do people put so much emphasis on virginity? Yes, all respect to those who save it for their loved ones. Hats off to you.
But to save it just for the sole intent of gaining commercial advantages seems rather outrageous. The fact that there are people with more money than sense, the fact that many females have an easy way out and refuse to work hard on their own... I must say I find it hard to respect such people. As for the businessmen who do end up paying for these young virgins, and whilst there's a popular saying that they can't take money with them to their deathbed and that it's their own choice what they would like to sprinkle their never-ending money on anyway, I still cannot help but feel utterly disgusted by how vacuous and careless people can be with their spending. To each his own, yes but I will never fathom out how people can be a few screws loose in matters like this. How uncanny of a concept it is to fuck a woman who's virginity costs fortunes and to feel proud of having being given that 'honour'. Ultimately the businessman may have just wanted fame, I don't know. Maybe it felt good because it's like immersing onself in that grand prestige of a world that not everyone can attain in their lifetime.
People associate their self worth with expensive goods nowadays. Additionally, there are so much money being poured into surgery to enhance looks, flaunt branded handbags, shoes, jackets etc. Getting lip injections, fake tits and going to extreme lengths to achieve that ridiculous Barbie doll look. Alternatively, a real life Ken as well.
People just place so much emphasis on looks and material possessions by a great fucking extent. Yes, I get it - who the fuck am I to judge on how people want to spend their money. But I cannot help but feel sad for them. As for Alexaandra, the girl who sold off her virginity, she says she will spend money for her education. But let's be real here and as tactless as I may sound, I doubt Aleexandra will even pursue her dreams of going to Oxford. I'm fairly certain money can blind people especially the fact that 3 million dollars have been presented to her in the blink of an eye, one can only imagine how much that probably fucks with her mind? She's living in a fantasy and obviously she wouldn't want to get out would she? Whether Oxford will even accept her or not is also another story. Ultimately, actions speak louder than words. Looks fade. There's no stopping of people from engaging in disturbing matters and the efforts to convince some to change will still be in vain. And life goes on.
