Do men really think that virginity is worth millions of dollars?

People do different things to earn; some choose to be employed, and others do amazing and creative type of business to make money. Recently a student who has auctioned her virginity to pay for a masters degree in Family and Marriage therapy, it has seen bidding hit £2.5million ($3.7m).

The idea that virginity has a high value harkens back to the days of early humans -- if a man has sex with a virgin woman, he knows for sure that her children will be his, anthropologists reason. In early civilizations, women were also considered the property of men, said Laura Carpenter, assistant professor of sociology at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee.
Natalie Dylan, 22, claims her offer of a one-night stand has persuaded 10,000 men to bid for sex with her. Last September, when her auction came to light, she had received bids up to £162,000 ($243,000) but since then interest in her has rocketed.

The student who has a degree in Women's Studies insisted she was not demeaning herself. Miss Dylan, from San Diego, California, USA, said she was persuaded to offer herself to the highest bidder after her sister Avia, 23, paid for her own degree after working as a prostitute for three weeks.
She said: "I get some men who are obviously looking for a girlfriend but I try and make it clear that this is a one-night-only offer. My study is completely authentic in that I truly am auctioning my virginity but I am not being sold into this. I'm not being taken advantage of in any way. I think me and the person I do it with will both profit greatly from the deal."
She added: “shocking that men will pay so much for someone's virginity, which isn't even prized so highly anymore." Today, about 95 percent of Americans have sex before they're 25 years of age.
