We have no idea if this is a gag or not and are somewhat puzzled how this woman appears so bashful yet apparently is ready for her Playboy spread. For all we know it’s a gag, but she’s getting attention nonetheless.
You probably won’t agree with what she’s doing, but that isn’t going to stop the 28-year-old who goes by Elizabeth Raine.
“It’s just really important to respect other people’s decisions even if you can’t understand them,” she told FOX 13 by phone.
Her decision? To auction off her virginity to the highest bidder.
“I really just saw it as a unique financial opportunity I wanted to take. It wasn’t out of desperation,” Raine insisted.
She just recently showed her face on her website after keeping her identity hidden. She claims to be a medical school student and says she was a double major in college.
“Being non-judgmental and being compassionate towards people, that’s what led me to medicine. That’s a big part of what this project means to me,” she continued.
It’s a project local mental health counselor Kathy Fountain doesn’t see ending well. She says it could lead to long-term damage.
“She might have children one day and this is going to follow her. What if her name forever as an internet name is the ‘virgin whore?'” Fountain offered, referring to the name of Raine’s blog.
