Catarina Migliorini, the 20-year-old self-professed Brazilian virgin who sold her virginity in an online auction as part of a documentary by Australian film-maker Justin Sisely is now counting down her remaining days as a virgin. The film-maker has confirmed that the flight between Australia and the United States onboard which Caterina and Natsu, the Japanese man who purchased the exclusive right to deflower her, will complete the final part of their $780,000 transaction, will occur between Nov. 12-16 according to information released by the Huffington Post on Oct. 31. It has not been announced on which airline the transaction will take place, but can you imagine the PR possibility for Virgin Atlantic? The online auction concluded on Oct. 24.
Catarina will be delivered to her buyer on board an aeroplane flying between Australia and the US, so that the act will not be subject to the prostitution laws of any country. She will be interviewed before and after the flight, but the act of consummating the transaction will not be filmed.
The documentary, which has been three years in the making, began with the placement of posters proclaiming "virgins wanted" all over the Australian cities of Melbourne and Sydney. The Melbourne film-maker was forced to hold the online auction and subsequent transactions outside of Australia and in international airspace respectively for fear of prosecution for prostitution and related charges.
Miss Migliorini, who has spoken of using the money to build homes for poverty-stricken families, intends to use the proceeds of her one-time act of prostitution to finance a public housing project for poor families in Santa Catarina, where she was born. The film-maker, however, has his doubts about how the young virgin will spend her earnings. Speaking with the Huffington Post recently, Sisely said he was skeptical of Migliorini's purported good intentions.
"I was surprised she said that because in all my dealings with her, she made it clear that it was a business decision for her," he said. "Now, given how big this story is in Brazil, she's trapped. If she doesn't give any money to charity, she's going to look bad."
"I’m a romantic girl at heart and believe in love. But this will make a big difference to my area."
Miss Migliorini signed up to the controversial project two years ago at the age of 18, when she saw advertisements looking to recruit virgins for the documentary.
"I saw this as a business. If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute, just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer."
Whilst this may hold true for professions involving the attainment of skills, when it comes to nouns which result from a chosen human action, once is enough. A murderer only need commit one act before they are branded with that particular epithet and it would seem fair to apply the same principle to women who choose to prostitute themselves, for however worthy a cause. Dictionary.com defines a prostitute as being "a woman who engages in sexual intercourse for money" amongst other less flattering terms.
Catarina will receive $20,000 and 90 per cent of the winning bid for taking part in the film.

A young male virgin, Alexander Stepanov, aged 21, from Sydney also sold his virginity through the show to a Brazilian woman called Nene B, however, it appears that male virginity is not as highly valued a commodity as it sold for just $3000.
Under the rules of the auction, Miss Migliorini will submit to an examination by a gynaecologist and will "provide the winning bidder with medical evidence of her virginity."
It is not possible to prove the virginity of a male through medical tests or anatomical examination, so Mr Stepanov's virginity will be attested to by himself and two of his family members who will give "statutory declarations to support his claim." in what is a much more dignified and less invasive, yet completely unreliable, manner of authentication.
The winning bidders, Natsu and Nene must both submit to a medical examination and a police check, and are not permitted to be intoxicated during their time with the virgins. No kissing or fellatio is allowed, and although the virgins and the winners are to agree about the length and duration of the sex, "the minimum consummation time is one hour," according to the rules of the auction.
