A reality show that promises to sell off three virgins to the highest bidder is to say the least raising a storm of controversy on two sides of the Pacific.
The show is the brainchild of an Australian filmmaker, Justin Sisley, and will be made for TV there. But, as of yesterday, the show was set to be filmed in Nevada.
The three virgins two women and one man are to be paid $20,000 each plus 90 percent of their sale price to take part in the auction, according to a report in the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
Australian authorities forced Sisley to move production of the show out of the country, threatening to charge him and the virgins with prostitution if they went through with their original plan.
But in Nevada, prostitution is legal.
Technically, Im selling my virginity for money, a 21-year-old woman named Veronica told the paper.
Technically, that would be classified as prostitution.
But its not going to be a regular thing, so in my head I can justify that Im not going to be a prostitute, she said. I dont think Ill regret it.
The male virgin, identified only as Alex, said he volunteered for the show as a way to meet a woman.
Sisley says the parents of the young people involved hate me.
According to the casting notice, the show entails our camera follow[ing] the principal cast . . . as they shed their virginity to a complete stranger in front of a worldwide audience.

It’s a story that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
I really don’t like reality shows ... :-)
“Alex, said he volunteered for the show as a way to meet a woman.”
As if any decent woman would be interested in a man willing to sell his sexual “services” for money.
Has anyone told the islamofascist suicide bombers about this? They could just save up their Dinars and avoid the whole blowing up thing. /sarc
I dont think Ill regret it.
How many virgins have casually tossed it away on prom night or similar events with that rationalization?
My first wife was a virgin. If I’d paid for the privilege, I believe I would have felt like the worst sort vermin and she would have felt used. Strange times. Soul suicide is all the rage.
I seem to recall an entire marketing campaign and brouhaha over a planned “first time” getting webcast, late 90’s/early 2000’s. Turned out to be a scam. Probably a similar story here. . .
what happens when they get bought by a bunch of overage, fat ugly old men?
