    Relocated to where, eactly?

    > Sisely has relocated the project to the States

    To Virginia perhaps?

    Collective Noun

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

    "An Australian filmmaker is taking a bit of stick"

    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.....)

    hmn I wonder what the £ ratio of girls to guys is

    I'm betting the girls make at least 10 times as much.

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

        For them men, they may be on one hand shaming themselves by saying they are vrigins , or on the other they may be geniuses for getting some woman to pay to have sex with them lol

        Paris because she's knows a true virign when she's dealing with one.

      Depends on what the boys ar ewilling to do and with who, I dont see anywhere were it states it

      has to be a member of the opposite sex!

    3. MeRp

      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.

      Virginity?

      Applicant 1: Yeah, I'm a virgin... honest

      Applicant 2: Oh, yeah - I'm a virgin too...

      Applicant 3: I'm a virgin, and so is my wife!

    There's an offer in already

    Apparently a Mr S. Maug has offered them piles of gold and gems* for suitable virgins.

    * Mithril coats *not* included.

    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.

    Now someone has to ask, do you get both virginitys for that price do you have to twice ?

    Paris just because..

      Surely they're still virgins unless it's a hat trick.

    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 )

    get two in the bush simultaneously. I've seen the video proof.

    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.

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

    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

    They flog adulterers in some countries.

    Prostitution is legal in Canberra.

    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.
