A Brazilian student who sold her virginity for £485,000 is yet again offering it up in another online auction, claiming she the original deal was never consummated.
Catarina Migliorini, 21, is selling her ‘virginity’ to bidders for the
minimum of £62,000, but says she hopes for at least £930,000 ($1.5million).
Miss Migliorini’s original ‘virginity auction’ was filmed for
an Australian documentary, but she claims she was duped by filmmaker Justin Sisely, and that she was never given the money a Japanese man paid for her purity last October.
The original auction made Miss Migliorini a minor celebrity in Brazil and she posed for Playboy in her native country and Argentina.
‘After being featured by so many media outlets in so many countries, I decided to actually auction off my virginity,’ she said.
The auction was supposedly part of an Australian documentary entitled Virgins Wanted, in which Mr Sisley would explore the lives of Miss Migliorini and Alex Stepanov, a male who auctioned his virginity for $3,000.
But when Miss Migliorini went to meet her winning bidder, Natsu, in a Sydney restaurant, she claims that he didn’t match the description Mr Sisely had given her, and insists the pair did not have sex.
She also claims Mr Sisely did not cover her traveling expenses, or give her the £485,000paid by Natsu; and she now believes that ‘Natsu‘ doesn’t exist, and that the auction was simply a ploy to gain media coverage for the documentary.
‘I agreed to go along with [the auction], because Justin said it would be the best way to draw attention from the media about the project,’ she said.
