Skip to comments.'Bounty' on Tim Tebow's Virginity a Form of Prostitution?

The New Orleans Saints bounty scandal is currently being dealt with by NFL officials, and already another bounty has been issued: $1 million in exchange for proof that Tim Tebow is no longer a virgin.
A controversial website that helps married individuals have affairs, AshleyMadison.com, is offering $1 million to the woman who can prove she has been sexually involved with the New York Jets' quarterback.
"I personally thought it was a very offensive publicity stunt...And I think that not only is it insulting to highlight Tim in that way, but I think it's insulting to all the people who hold to the same conviction that Tim would have," Esther Fleece, a Focus on the Family spokesperson, told The Christian Post on Wednesday.
Fleece says she first read about the bounty among other sports-related stories on the Internet. But it's not a sports story, she says, and it is unfair for the media to ask questions about a football player's sexuality when it has nothing to do with the game or his career.
A press release from Ashley Madison claims that "Tebow has been using his infamy from this year's football season to get some ladies in the sack." The company is now seeking proof of its claim by accepting photographs, videos, DNA samples or sworn affidavits from the mothers of the women who claim to have had a sexual encounter with Tebow.
The now 24-year-old Tebow was first asked whether or not he was a virgin at an SEC Media Day press conference three years ago. He said that he was, and it appears that he now has a $1 million target on his back as a result.
"I think there are many people that hold Tim's view on purity and on abstinence, the difference is we're not being asked that with a public platform," said Fleece. "I think it takes an even stronger person to be able to handle the criticism and mocking when you're in the spotlight like Tim is."
She believes that, as a result of the Ashley Madison offer, women will begin trying to seduce Tebow in order to get the money. People are often outraged when they hear that politicians have had extramarital affairs, she says, but they should be equally upset over what the company is asking women to do through this offer.
"It's very serious what Ashley Madison is charging females to do, and I think it's a form of prostituting themselves," Fleece said.
She says today's American culture is "sexually hypercharged," and those who hold to high standards of purity need to be sure to support one another.
"It's not surprising, but it's disheartening, and I certainly would like to see Christians hold to a higher standard and support those who do hold to a higher standard."
I didn’t get the impression that they are offering $1 million for someone to seduce Tim.
I think they were hoping to find someone that had already been to bed with him and would prove him to be a liar.
Disgusting. Larry Flynt Journalism.
Well Tim, stout heart, lad.
Right...they have the end of the rug lifted and are sweeping as fast as they can. The rats involved in this should be barred from football for life.

This so-called bounty is not worth the energy to even discuss. It only brings free publicity to that site. Better left to small, immature minds.
I find it offensive that a website would stoop this low and question Tim Tebow’s honesty and virtue.
Tebow needs to sue and force that repulsive website out if his private life and out or business.
There’s no sweeping going on. One coach banned from even talking to anybody in the NFL for a year, one banned until further notice, and the player suspensions are coming. That ain’t under a rug.
I can assure this person that women trying to "seduce" famous QB Tim Tebow for money or fame started many years ago. From what I have seen on various college campuses, it probably really kicked in when he entered University.
Obviously, collecting a DNA sample will win them a million bucks. I don’t expect the payer is going to care when it was collected and by whom.
Post date the pix.
EZ cool million.
...and likely looking for “50%” rather than settling for a mere million.
Ain’t like the Democrats don’t try to get this kind of stuff on conservative Republicans in just about every election above county supervisor.
Times we live in.
I thought that Tebow was engaged to a college sweetheart? Or was she merely a girlfriend?
I don’t see how it’s not.
I don’t see how it’s not.
I don’t see how it’s not.
“Tebow has been using his infamy from this year’s football season”
“Infamy”? Who is he, Jesse James? I think they mean fame.
I'm scratching my head. Does the note need to be signed, "Epstein's Mother?"
It’s funny. I worked with a girl who went to college with Tebow. She was a big time lib, but when you got her talking about him, you could tell even she had a crush on the guy. If he’s really still a virgin, he must have a willpower of iron, because I can only imagine how many young, attractive women just throw themselves at him.
In my opinion, what we are currently seeing/hearing is only the “tip of the iceberg”. These “slaps on the wrist” will only make pro football look more currupt.
Farmer Ted: Can I borrow your underpants for ten minutes?
The Ricky Hollywood busines, eh?
They’re talking 27 players getting punished to some degree or another. And how rude to the teams (yeah teams because some of those players must be elsewhere by now) to wait until AFTER the draft to announce that list. I don’t see in what world a full year suspension with no contact allowed, and a “we’ll see if you can earn your way back” are slaps on the wrist. Pro football doesn’t look corrupt now, and these suspensions sure as hell don’t make it look more so. You’re living in bizarro world.
