New York: When it comes to losing their virginity, most women wait for the right man, while others prefer to wait for the right price. Elizabeth Raine (27), has decided to auction off her virginity and hopes to get at least $400,000 (Rs 2.45 crore) for the exchange.

How charitable: Elizabeth Raine said that she wasn’t simply selling her virginity for cash — she claimed she will donate 35 per cent to charity

Raine (not her real name) has created a website for potential bidders to find out more about her and a blog explaining her decision to go ‘from virgin to literal whore’.

The website features her posing in lingerie with her face hidden. Raine said she is at least ‘99.7 per cent certain’ she will go through with it.

The student has promised the winning bidder a 12-hour date during which he will be offered her virginity.
She will also donate 35 per cent of the money she receives to a charity that brings education to women in developing countries.

“The concept does not offend me, it is a unique opportunity for excitement and growth, and I need not mention the nice financial bonus,” she explained.

“So you see, how could I deny myself this experience only because of the diverging beliefs of others? If I did, I would just feel like a coward, and this I am not,” she added.

The auction will begin on April 1.
