Woman auctions off her virginity...demeaning herself

Student auctions off virginity

"A student who is auctioning her virginity to pay for a masters degree in Family and Marriage therapy has seen bidding hit £2.5million ($3.7m). 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."

To demean means to "debase, as in dignity or social standing." Dignity means "The quality or state of being worthy of esteem or respect." Or "Inherent nobility and worth."

We all have inherent worth. God made us in His image. However,

2 Timothy 3: 1-2: "But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy" ... Have we fallen to such a state that we think not that selling one's self is not prostitution? And that prostitution is an offense against God and against the self?

In the article: "Miss Dylan said she did not think it was particularly significant to be willing to sell your virginity."

When a woman loses her virginity the token of her virginity would be blood from the broken hymen. This blood should represent the blood covenant between her and her husband. Ms Dylan 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."

Ohh, this girl is so sad! So deluded! My heart aches for her, for the society which condones this! (Romans 1:32).

Reasons to remain a virgin before marriage:
  1. It is God's will, to please God, to avoid sin and consequent judgment.
  2. To provide a unique gift for one's marriage partner.
  3. To be pure.
  4. To avoid STD's and AIDs and the resulting complications such as infertility.
  5. To avoid emotional ties through the bonding of sex.
  6. To avoid unwanted pregnancy.
  7. To avoid comparison with one's eventual marriage partner.
Paul writes in I Corinthians 6:9-11, "Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the Kingdom of God." You say, "What am I to do then? For I am guilty." Read the next verse, "But such were some of you". According to Acts 18:8, "And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized." The guilty Corinthians were forgiven, redeemed.

Oh, how sad a woman, this daughter of a loving father and mother, should love money so much that she should sully her own body that Christ made her and gave her. Please pray for this girl, for her family, and for any person reading these news articles and is emulating her. She can repent and ask forgiveness and our God is so Holy and Loving ...He will.
