Catarina Migliorini, a stunning 20-year-old student from Brazil, sold her virginity online to a Japanese man only known as "Natsu" for a whopping $780,000. Migliorini has been auctioning off her "first time" online for the past couple weeks now - Natsu finally beat out five other high-bidders on Tuesday, Oct. 23. On the other hand, Migliorini's male virgin counterpart Alex Stepanov (who also recently sold his virginity online) only received $3,000 from a woman in Brazli named "Nene B."
Natsu had to feverishly up his bid from $190,000 to $780,000 in the final hours of Migliorini's virginity auction. Although Migliorini, a physical education major, claims that she will donate 90 percent of her virginity "earnings" to different charities that help build homes in Santa Catrina, Brazil, Justin Sisely (the auction organizer) is quiet skeptical.
Australian filmmaker Sisely, who devised the whole "sell your virginity online" scheme for a proposed documentary, told the Huffington Post - "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. 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."

Sisely was met with criticism when he first began the project back in 2009, considered he started posting posters around Sydney and Melbourne that were emblazoned with "Virgins Wanted." Migliorini, who appeared on Sisely's "Virgins Wanted" website alongside Stepanov, recently told the Folha newspaper: "I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it.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."
Migliorini, who is set to be "delivered" to Natsu soon, will be interviewed both before and after losing her virginity for Sisely's film. The actual sex act will not be filmed.
