Another Brazilian Auctioning Off Her Virginity To Pay Her Mother's Medical Bills.
Hmmm, this is a new year o...The other time i posted about a teenager auctioning her virginity for $780,000, y'all thought it was outrageous. Well, it seem another teenager is following suit. According to CNN, Rebecca Bernardo from a small Brazilian town posted a video on YouTube a few months ago telling the world that she is auctioning off her virginity. Bernardo made the video because she was desperate to help pay for her ailing mother's medical bills. She had heard of another woman, Catarina Migliorini of Brazil, auctioning off her virginity for around $780,000 and thought it wise to do the same. In the aftermath, Migliorini has received widespread attention for auctioning her virginity, including a spread in Brazil Playboy magazine and a modeling contract. Bernardo, however, just wants to be able to help her family.
Bernardo has tried to work before. She was a waitress and also sold cosmetics, but the pay, she said, was not good enough. But after using her friend's YouTube account to post the now infamous video, she got 3,000 hits on the first day. Her highest bid as of late was $35,000. But there's also been an outpouring of help from other areas begging Bernardo to call off her auction. A Brazilian TV network offered to pay for her mother's medical expenses if Bernardo called off the auction. While she initially accepted the offer during a television interview, she later rejected it because the network would not pay for a house in a different town where she could "start a new life."
