Med Student Auctions Off Virginity, Calls Out "Slut Shaming"

Usually when we’re in need of some extra cash we look for a second job, sell property or do freelance work. But what else would you give up in return for money? Perhaps your virginity?

American medical student Elizabeth Raine’s virginity is up for grabs -- to the highest bidder. She wouldn’t be the first woman to do this -- but you’ve got to credit her marketing prowess: everyone’s talking about her.

Raine claims to have bachelor’s degrees in both biology and engineering, and needs the money to complete a combined MD/PhD -- that’s one way to give your body for science. The 27 year-old student has been running an online virginity auction since March 31 and it’s set to end May 7.

Her identity was originally hidden, but Raine recently put pictures up saying, "I didn't like the anonymity. People mistake it for shame.” Since she posted her sexy pictures, the top bid has increased to $550,000 (according to elizabeth-raine.com).

But -- thankfully -- the highest bidder is required to follow some rules:
- proof that he has no STDs
- must be willing to wear a condom
- must be sober
- and no anal (it’s her virginity up for sale, not any other assets).

In an interview with The Huffington Post, the blonde bombshell explained why she was a virgin, "I have a busy life. I am picky and guys were never a priority.”

Unfortunately for Raine, you can’t be too fussy when you’re auctioning off your virginity to strangers.

Do you think she's a virgin? Is it really for med school? During her HuffPost interview, Raine describes the process transformative. "I'm more educated about prostitution, virginity and slut-shaming."
