A young Brazilian girl, Rebecca Bernardo, has auctioned her virginity online in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Rebecca uploaded a video onto YouTube explaining that she was there to “auction off” her virginity. So what happened to Rebecca that would cause her to go as far as to auction her virginity online?
Shortly after Rebecca’s eighteenth birthday her mother suffered a stroke. Rebecca then took on the role of being her mother’s care taker. With no family or friends to help out Rebecca became desperate. She got inspired by another Brazilian girl, Catarina Migliorini, who auctioned her virginity online.
Catarina sold her virginity for different reasons though; she wanted to build homes for poverty-stricken families. As a result Catarina got fame and fortune. She doesn’t consider selling her virginity as prostitution though. Catarina explained in an interview with the DailyMail, “'If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute, just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer.” Watch the video below and let us know what you think in the comments below.
