Girl For Sale! Get Your Hot Fresh Young Girl’s Virginity Straight From Your Grocer’s Freezer! Or The Internet

virginyoutubeI hate this whole buying people trend. Or you know, buying their fair maidenhood in exchange for piles of cash in exchange for the chance to “take” their virginity. It’s totally bumming me out because the girl for sale in this case is an 18-year-old high school student from Brazil who is selling off her de-flowering (I love that term, it’s so medieval) to pay for her sick mom’s medical bills. Rebecca Bernardo, the fair maiden for sale, said she had heard about the other fair maiden who sold her virginity online for $780,000 and wanted to do the same thing, because waitressing wasn’t paying the bills.

From The Daily Mail:

‘I made up my mind right after my 18th birthday. That’s when my mother suffered a stroke.’

The teen says she tried other methods of employment, such a working as a waitress, but the cost of paying for a caretaker to look after her bedridden mother proved too high for her hourly wages.

The stroke left her mother unable to fed herself or go to the bathroom alone.

A neighbor explained that Miss Bernardo’s older sister passed away several years ago and she never knew her father. ’She had no one to go to, no one to help,’ said the neighbor. ‘This is the only solution she found.’

Here is the amazingly depressing video for your viewing enjoyment:

What a desperate situation where you feel like your best option is selling off your virginity in order to help your mom get the care she needs. And I know a lot of you “slut-shamers” out there will be telling me she has other options and that she should find another way of making money blah blah, and yes, I agree that people should have better medical care so they don’t have to resort to selling themselves, but if someone I loved were in the same situation and I was desperate, I don’t know what I would do either. For all of you who feel like being all ‘slut-shamey’ about this, a lot of the You Tube commenters are right there with you.

A local television network offered to pay for Bernardo’s mother’s medical bills, but she turned down the offer because she hopes to raise enough money to relocate with her mother.

    I really hope this is a hoax. Then it’d just be angering, which is a bit better than depressing.

    She’s a legal adult (by US standards anyhow), and not everyone sees their “flower” as something precious and sacred. It feels icky and wrong because we see an innocent young virgin being forced to sell her precious lady treasure to pay for her mother’s bills. She might be an empowered young woman who thinks demanding piles of cash from some derpy guy for the chance to snap her hymen is a totally legit way to help her mom out. She might not even be a virgin, it’s pretty hard to prove. I don’t like the idea of a woman being sold by another person, but I fully support a woman selling herself for her own reasons/gains. That’s not exploitation. It might be desperation, but it’s on her terms so it’s acceptable. She even turned down the news station’s money because she wants MORE money and she’s totally committed to doing what she’s set out to do. That doesn’t sound like the actions of a desperate victim to me.

      I would comment, but you have just said everything I would have said myself.
      I honestly don’t see why everyone always gives such a huge whoop about things like this, the women doing it are legal adults and capable of making their own decisions. Sure, perhaps to some people virginity is a sacred and precious thing, but to others it’s no big deal. Hell, in some places selling a girl’s virginity is still a somewhat common practice. I think this whole situation falls under the category of ‘things that everyone should just keep their noses out of and mind their own business on.’
