back to article Oz filmmaker to flog virgins for TV doco

An Australian filmmaker is taking a bit of stick over his plan to make a documentary in which participants auction their virginity, Oz's Daily Telegraph reports. Justin Sisely has recruited a veritable venal* of male and female virgins for the "new low" in reality TV, which will see initial bids taken online, before a face-to- …

Relocated to where, eactly?

> Sisely has relocated the project to the States

To Virginia perhaps?

to where...

It did say, in the article itself (shockingly enough) that the deal would be made in Nevada. This, of course, makes sense, given that it is the only state in the US where prostitution is legal.

I think a "Venality" is a bit more felicitous. Nice idea, though.

This is going to offend so many people. Wonder if the middle East will do another Theo Van Gogh.

As well as the female virgins apparently.

Auction their virginity?

That would be both blokes and birds, right?

What I want to know is, how do they prove they've got it to give away...?

(It's good to see that El Reg have provided a virgin icon. I expect everyone else will be picking Paris. As you do.....)

Isn't appearing as a contestant on a game show for virgins enough proof?

A refund for faulty goods?

So do you get a refund if she was telling lies because Daddy wouldn't be happy about it? But surely rich people are not short of virgins? Well maybe the ugly ones are.

WTF?

Sad people

I've yet to see the attraction in having sex with someone who, well has never had sex before. I mean you wouldn't pay for a trip round Silverstone with a learner driver would you??

well you would

if you wanted to burn some rubber and make frequent pit stops.

And then you could take her to Silverstone.

In my experience

virgins are pretty useless in the sack (and I don't exclude my much younger self from that either). But then some people will preferentially put up with that in return for a partner who hasn't the experience to realise how useless THEY are also.

On the other side, I can think of far more pointless things to be saving yourself for than a big wad of cash (my first husband, for example :-X )

Reading not your strong point?

I think that you will find the the Oz city in question is Melbourne. Mind you I suspect the same criteria would apply.

Nothing wrong with my reading skills...

How about yours? Try this line from the article:

"Among those willing to take the plunge in return for cash is a 21-year-old Sydney lass"

She justified...

"I can hopefully change the way people think about sex in society..."

How would she know? She's never had any?!

Paris, coz she was crap in bed too, if the video was anything to go by.

Bah!

I believe the correct collective noun for virgins is "a hymen".

If one must specify a group of male virgins specifically, the collective noun is "a dithering".

Or, perhaps

a handshake of male virgins

What about the guys?

"Each virgin gets AU$20,000, and 90 per cent of the winning bid"

'Round here, we call them prostitutes.

Also known as ho, hoebag, hoecake, lady of the night, whore, cocotte, harlot, trollop, bawd, tart, cyprian, fancy woman, working girl, sporting lady, lady of pleasure, woman of the street, call girl, streetwalker, courtesan, trollop, strumpet... You get the idea.

If this were for men winning prizes to lose their cherries, (figuratively speaking) there would be rioting in the streets by the feminazis.

Where do I apply?

Can I be a virgin? Please?!

The proof of being a virgin is not 100%. Hymen replacement surgery is available in weird countries and so you just have to really take someone's word for it or maybe investigate their past.

If they are earning 20k then they can afford to pay bribes for a virginal life-story and probably get the surgery done too. Mind you, the hymen diminishes with age and usually diminishes so much after puberty it stops being any hindrance to penetration and any young female that uses tampons, does reasonable physical activity such as school gymnastics and sports has most likely ruptured or torn her remaining hymen already.

I speculate that societies that valued the hymenal virgin approved marriages to really young girls, say 11-years onwards. I also speculate that the hymen surgery returns the woman to an ideal young-girl state - in other words it is fantasy fulfilment.
