New Delhi: In a high-stakes auction of a 20-year-old Brazilian girl’s virginity, an Indian man lost his bid to a Japanese rival after putting up a strong competition. Natsu, from Japan, won Catarina Migliorini’s virginity against the big-spender from India, Rudra Chatterjee and American bidders Jack Miller and Jack Right.
The physical education student who said she will use the cash to build homes for poverty-stricken families was the subject of 15 bids, the 'New York Daily News' reported. Catarina's move sparked outrage across the globe as she revealed that she would be followed every step of the way by an Australian crew for a documentary film called "Virgins Wanted".
"I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it. The auction is just business, I'm a romantic girl at heart and believe in love. But this will make a big difference to my area," she told Folha newspaper.
Catarina will be "delivered" to her buyer on board a plane between Australia and the US being interviewed before and after losing her virginity at a secret location. Natsu will retain a right to be anonymous, without his picture appearing in the media, the report said.
Catarina previously said she wanted to plough the money USD 20,000 and 90 per cent of the final auction price into a non-governmental organisation that will construct modern houses in her home state of Santa Catarina. She signed up to the project two years ago when she saw an advertisement by Thomas Williams Productions looking for virgins to film.
