An overview of the Virgin Market Place (VMP) and a rundown of prices around the turnpike world.
From source .
A 19-year-old New Zealand student, known only as Unigirl, sold her virginity to a stranger for $32,000. Her online ad was viewed by 30,000 people and received over 1,200 offers. Thanks to the Internet, women like Unigirl are putting their sexual initiation up for sale in the very public marketplace. Though these auctions have a new global reach, the pricing of virginity is an ancient human practice – according to the book of Deuteronomy, a girl’s virginity is worth 50 shekels, paid to her father. In today’s economy, how much is a woman’s virginity worth?
The passage in Deuteronomy 22:28-29 (NKJV) reads,
28 “If a man finds a young woman who is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and he seizes her and lies with her, and they are found out, 29 then the man who lay with her shall give to the young woman’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife because he has humbled her; he shall not be permitted to divorce her all his days.
That last clause in boldface stipulates that he is required to feed, clothe, and house her for the rest of his life. It’s difficult to put a price tag on that, but we can find the approximate value of fifty shekels by doing a little calculation.
A shekel is a unit of weight, so the implied value would be the equivalent weight in gold.
1 shekel (Biblical Hebrew) 11.4 g. 0.402 oz
50 shekels (Biblical Hebrew) 570 g. 20.1 oz
These days, gold is worth about US$1,500 an ounce. So that sets the Biblically proscribed value of virginity at about US$30,150, which compares closely to Unigirl’s price tag of US$30,000. Other virgin wh0res being gaveled on the mattress are selling for figures on the same order of magnitude. But if the laydie has particularly excellent genetic breeding, she can fetch seven digit figures for a night’s work.
The Slate breaks down the @$$essment further, explaining that virginity sells for…
At least $10,000 if the woman is reasonably attractive and under 25. The exact price ultimately depends on the “quality” of the virginity: how young and hot the virgin is. Models can fetch over $1 million. In 2005, Peruvian model Graciela Yataco was the first to break this threshold, although she eventually declined her top bid of $1.3 million. In January 2009, 20-year-old Italian model Raffaella Fico received an offer of nearly $1.5 million, but also allegedly retracted the auction. She is now dating a professional soccer player.
One Russian website, One Love Night, now offers bonerfied virgins for sale, with prices starting at US$10,000. Reading through some profiles of the Slavic vixens, it is common for them not to care at all whether the man offers any level of commitment or not, nor even if he is married. They just want the financial freedom and social independence that comes with the influx of cash. True wh0res! Some of them say they would like to retain a sugar daddy from the experience, but most just want their first experience getting poled in the sack to be with a wealthy powerful man.
This phenomenon is not unique to Western, White, or Latino countries. In Taiwan, I’ve heard stories of impoverished families living in the reclusive mountainous areas informally “renting out” their daughters to wealthier “friends” in exchange for high-end electronics and cash amounting to roughly US$2,000, which is equivalent to two months’ wages in Taiwan, and perhaps up to a year’s wages in that particular neck of the bush. A year’s wages in western countries stands at about US$30,000 (for the lower-middle class), so the hymen markup in backwoods Taiwan also compares closely to the Biblical figures.
As you might imagine, these people have a very simple life, which inevitably invites innocent girls to get down and dirty in the backroom. Some of these girls are as young as 14, because that is where the market demand is. Once a girl starts to develop her own opinions about things, the demand drops sharply, as does the price she can fetch.
In Laos, desperately impoverished farmers are selling their teenage daughters to brokers who are operating under the lugubrious guise of a matchmaking service for wealthy Chinese men seeking virgin brides. In fact, the customers are elderly, crippled, and disease ridden, and they have no intentions of marriage whatsoever. After the deed is done, these girls are dumped on the street to fend for themselves. Understandably, they don’t wish to return to the place they once called home.
According to the Bangkok Post , deals for these innocent tootsie rolls are cut between US$185 to US$310, in addition to a throng of bribes for law enforcement, immigration agents, and middle men. The fact that this price is much lower than the standard year’s wage in Thailand (US$7,974.90 per capita in 2019) stands as a testament to the abject destitution of the indigent subculture. Meanwhile, the fathers remain ignorant of their daughter’s fates, thinking them to be the pampered housewives of well heeled foreigners.
As bl00dy evil as this practice is, the point is that virginity is in high demand, and is widely recognized to have a cash value. Shockingly, the market demand and cash value of a virgin courtesan is even higher than the initial cost of a virgin bride! SMH
But in rural parts of the United States, it is not uncommon for a teenage girl to give up her purity for a good laugh, an empty promise, two tall beers, and a joint. But no one ever gives a flip about that. Murican wimmin may be the cheapest wh0res in the world!
By contrast, women from other parts of the world have a sense of purplepose in “entering womanhood”.
Yataco was a devout Catholic who needed money to care for her sick mother. Fico was also religious and planned to use the profits from her sexual foray for acting classes once she bought a house in Rome.
I don’t know what it is about Catholics. They’re expressly forbidden from having premarital sex, extramarital affairs, and divorce. Abortion and birth control are also verboten. But if/when given the right circumstances, they’ll eagerly dive into all these iniquities. Catholic school girls and Catholic clergy don’t have sexualized stereotypes for no reason. My apologies to Earl, Richard, and Bonald, but what is it about Catholicism that breeds sexual dalliances? Could it be the overt repression of the human nature?
In the nominally Catholic Philippines, it is rather common for young daughters of tenant farmers to migrate from rural areas into the cities where they “work the street” until they can find a regular job (usually through a friendly “customer”) and get off their @$$es and back on their feet (literally, heh…). A young girl working the streets in Manila can earn as much money in a week as a farmer in Mindanao can make in a year.
With a resigned yet determined attitude toward reality, these girls consider this the “price of admission” to enter a higher socio-economic class. (Young male migrants, on the other hand, find ample opportunities doing hard manual labor.)
Little do they realize that they’re simply trading socio-economic value for Marriage Market Value (MMV). From a spiritual perspective, it’s a sacrifice to Ashtoreth.
The narrative of self-sacrifice is ready-made for the media, and this good publicity inflates demand. In 2007, 18-year-old Carys Copestake from Manchester managed to make $23,000 to finance her physics degree, even though the only physical information she provided was, “brunette, 34C, green eyes, all in proportion and good looking.”
Yes, that’s all that really matters to wh0remongers.
In spite of the obvious iniquity and self-abasement attached to the practice, the shame of resorting to prostitution in order to advance socioeconomically is habitually overlooked, rephrased (e.g. escort, sex-worker, purposeful companion, etc.), or somehow transformed into something less inglorious, especially if the girl has succeeded in making a particularly lucrative transaction.
Branding is also crucial. According to Gawker , current co-eds have the priciest hymens, as “college girls are simultaneously Girls Gone Wild and nubile pillow-fighting naifs.” To maximize gains, a woman should also disclose her identity, preferably with revealing pictures and a detailed sexual history. The most successful for-sale virgins package themselves as pure and virtuous virgin/wh0res.
I think The Slate means “branding” as in commercial branding, but there are many sex trafficking agencies that utilize branding with tattoos or even a hot iron, so that the pimps can keep tract of which hoes belong to which bros. Many of these gun molls are willing accomplices, looking for an alternate lifestyle of drugs, material luxuries, and illegal thrills with bad boys. Considering the cash value of virginity, these gang lords and sex traffickers know exactly where the money is. More reasons to avoid nonvirginal women with tattoos.
But as bad as these girls might be, they still adhere to a male-led hierarchy and are loyal (even if not faithful) to their main man. The hardest core wh0res of all are those who reject all authority of any kind and run independent leases on their own @$$es, all for the sake of personal freedom, sexual power, and socio-economic independence.
Natalie Dylan is the ultimate virginity-marketing mogul. A 22-year-old women’s studies graduate from Sacramento State, Dylan needed the money to pay for her master’s degree in family and marriage therapy. She announced the auction on Howard Stern’s radio show in September 2008 and justified her decision in the Daily Beast and on The Tyra Banks Show. After her media blitz, Dylan received over 10,000 bids, half of which were for over $1 million.
Dylan approached her virginity like a good capitalist. “The value of my chastity is one level on which men cannot compete with me,” she said to Tyra. “I decided to flip the equation, and turn my virginity into something that allows me to gain power and opportunity from men.”
…like a good capitalist. Heh… Dylan approached her virginity like a good feminist! She even said that she sold herself off explicitly “to gain power from men”.
She might as well cash in on the bl00dy cherry now, because once she starts college, that cool million will be p!ssed away in a frat house within the first two weeks of her freshman year.
Maureen O’Connor, the author of the piece at Gawker wrote a revealing lie in the sky.
Since upper education is a tool of the upper class and upwardly mobile, college girl prostitutes belong (or will someday belong) to the same social class as their rich johns. What’s more, Natalie and Unigirl portrayed their virginity auctions as one-time things — they’ll go on to professional careers, respectable marriages, maybe even white picket fences. The fantasy that these girls are different (better, even, than Tiger’s mistresses!) keeps their value high.
LMSAO! That’s a fantastically solipsistic Sinderella (or Ho White) claim if I ever heard one! It sounds similar to the Laotian “hotel wedding” broker’s fraudulent sales pitch, except catering to upper crusty particulars. The Red Pilled view on that illusion goes something like the following.
If a sufficient number of nubiles buy into that phantasm, the market for virgin snatch could take off within the next decade. Young girls will be increasingly allured by the quick lucrative sale of their cherry blossom, kick starting an avalanche of V-auctions to the highest bidder. Rich boys will develop soft harems comprised of all their virgin flings – wimmin who will afterwards become alpha widowed by their first diamond d!ck, and find themselves unable to “settle for a lesser man” in a proper marriage. Even if they could break the yuppie’s soul mold and then resist the lure of a serial monogamy styled independence, would there be any man willing to marry a woman who’s been bought, sold, f*cked like a wh0re, then rode the carousel for at least 4 years, all while being professionally edgecated to scold cucks?
NRFW! She has already received her reward in full.
For the majority of cases, virgin wh0res are simply trading Marriage Market Value (MMV) for other socio-economic opportunities in which they are more self-reliant, and not dependent upon any one man. This bifurcated ontology hearkens back to the Feminine Dilemma.
How is the bourgeoisie virgin auction any different from black market sex trafficking in the squalid shantytowns of Asia? The difference is that the So Cal’ed “cultured laydies” are choosing their johnsons to suit their flakes, and are willingly prostrating themselves to be defiled, whereas, the poorer women of the world are often coerced or beguiled into becoming an accessory. But both contexts buy into the lines of socioeconomic come uppance.
Virgins for sale right here! Now going for 50 shekels of gold or a year’s wages, whichever one fits the glass slipper!
