CNN reports that a Vegas brothel has got its hands on a 20-year-old virgin and they’re auctioning off her flower so that she can help her family rebuild their house. Ok… yes… carry on…
This isn’t the first time this has happened. You will recall the “Beautiful Blonde Student” who auctioned off her innocence back in 2014 at the age of 27. Then there was the “Beautiful Brazilian Girl“, 20, who gave her virginity away for around R7 million.
Today’s young lady, Katherine Stone, wants to be a lawyer one day. CNN reports:
At one of Nevada’s infamous legal brothels, a 20-year-old woman recently signed up for work — but not to have sex.
Instead, Katherine Stone, who dreams of one day becoming a lawyer, planned to sell something other women working at the bordello couldn’t offer: Her virginity.
Like the brothels themselves, Stone’s choice has been controversial, particularly for those who believe a woman’s virginity should only be shared for love.
I find that line very interesting.
I remember losing my virginity (yes, I’m not actually a virgin, ok) and I can tell you now for a fact that it was not for love. I doubt many first times are. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen but, hey, a large portion of virginity losses occur in an alcoholic haze. I have a large number of girlfriends who can hardly remember the actual moment. I’m not saying that purity doesn’t exist, I just think that in today’s Western mainstream society, it’s a very Disney notion.
It turns out Katherine has a more compelling case than my aforementioned friends.
“People say you are suppose to do it for love,” Stone says of the cultural ideals around losing one’s virginity. “But if you think about it, I am doing it because I love my family.”
Let’s unpack that.
In 2014, Stone’s family home in Seattle, Washington, was destroyed by a fire. Without insurance, Stone and her family found themselves forced to remain in the scorched property.
Then came the day when she noticed an ad on Facebook, and “I found out all about the brothels and the money,” Stone says. “It made me think, ‘Wow, it’s a chance at fixing all that I need to fix.'”
Brothel tycoon Dennis Hof owns seven of Nevada’s legal bordellos, and that’s who Stone turned to last year for help.
Hof — who says he receives two to three similar requests a week — agreed to sell Stone’s one-time service with the understanding that he’ll take a 50% cut from the profits of the final bid.
In an effort to salvage her family’s damaged home, Stone packed her bags and left home for the first time to live at one of Hof’s brothels.
Well, I guess she has a more noble case than a lot of the first-time stories I’ve heard before.
And what of the big night? Is she nervous?
Washington Post confirms:
“I had no clue what to expect,” she said. “I’ve been nervous since I even came up with the idea to do this.” The other women quickly embraced her, she said, and they frequently hang out together when not working. Stone was assigned a “big sister” named “GI Jen,” who acts as her mentor in the house.
We wish her the best of luck and trust her family is rooting for her.
