A young Brazilian woman recently sold her vcard in an online auction. But can doctors confirm that she’s a virgin?
Catarina Migliorini sold her virginity to a Japanese man, known as Natsu, for no less than $780,000 (about R3 million).
And get this, it was all in the name of charity (she plans to donate the funds to struggling Brazilian families.)
Doctors will be examining her before the deal is sealed but this really doesn’t mean anything, because doctors (not even gynaecologists) can prove whether a woman has had intercourse or not.
This is because of 2 reasons:
First, hymens come in various shapes and sizes. Some women can have months of sexual intercourse before the hymen tears. Thus a woman can remain “intact” while being sexually active.
Second, hymens often tear through activities completely unrelated to sexual activity. Something as simple as running can tear the hymen and lead the uninformed to believe that a girl has had sexual intercourse.
This is not the only problematic issue with this stunt.
Which definition of virginity are they using? Surely sex does not only mean the insertion of a penis into a vagina? If so, are gays and lesbians all virgins then?
And why are women still seen as being more “valuable” when they have hymens? The misogyny behind this actually makes my head hurt.
How was your first time?
