Bargain

And just think . . . all it took for the Young Miss's deflowering was wine.

Holy crap. I cannot believe this is for real.

It IS real. Salon has an interesting commentary:

But what in the world would that encoutner be like! Who is INSANE enough to fork over three million dollars for sex (once!)!??

Balou said...

Wow! You got wine? ;)

I weighed in on this at Aaryn Belfer's Thematically Fickle last week. Yuck, just yuck.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Aaryn at thematically fickle did a brilliant post on this too.

Me? I didn't even get wine. :-(

This just makes me sad.

It just goes to show you what the world is coming to. And what our society has deemed most important. Sex. Money.

Ree said...

Damn. Why didn't I think of that?

Oh yea, eBay didn't exist.

Kimberly said...

Seriously. I gave mine up for free and got NOTHIN' but heartache in return.

Professor J said...

I think I got beer.

No wine, but I am still married to the guy.

I think I either got a winner or was a winner. Or both.

Well,obviously, the Matron did not have the sponsorship of the
Bunny Ranch behind her defloration.
Although I'm sure the wine made it seem like a good idea at the time.

In retrospect, my first time was worth neither the hype nor anywhere near $3.8 mil.

But seriously, I can't believe she's failing to see the lack of logic in her experiment. Because--really--she's still being a slave to it. Just in a different way.

I bet it was super special cask wine 'though.

Romantic she is not.
