A Brazilian student who sold her virginity for $780,000 is auctioning it off for the second time, claiming she never had sex with the original buyer.
Catarina Migliorini, 21, first became famous when her original “virginity auction” was filmed for an Australian documentary entitled “Virgins Wanted.” She had stated that she wanted to give 90 percent of the auction money to a non-governmental organization building houses in her state of Santa Catarina, but now claims she was never given the money nor did she lose her virginity.
“After being featured by so many media outlets in so many countries, I decided to actually auction off my virginity,” she told the Huffington Post.
For the first auction, a 53-year-old millionaire from Japan known as “Natsu” beat out five other bidders for a date with the physical education student. Migliorini and Alex Stepanow, a man who auctioned off his virginity for $3,000, were to be interviewed for the documentary made by Justin Sisely.

But she now says she was exploited by Sisely and that the auction was a ploy to gain media coverage for the documentary.
Migliorini also claims Sisely did not cover her traveling expenses and now believes Natsu doesn’t exist. She says she became suspicious when she met with a man who claimed to be Natsu but did not fit the description she was given of him.
Despite these claims, Migiliorini gained fame after the auction when she posed for Playboy in Brazil and Argentina.
The bidding for the second auction ends Dec. 12, with the minimum bid for her virginity being $100,000. Her goal this time is to get $1.5 million.
As expected, Migliorini’s second attempt at auctioning off her virginity has been received with skepticism. But she says she is willing to subject herself “to any exams necessary” to prove she’s still a virgin.
“When I say I am a virgin it’s because there is no one in the world that can prove the contrary,” she said. “I never had sexual relations of any type with anyone, not vaginal, not anal and not oral.
She accuses Sisely of defrauding her and others with his documentary, saying he wanted to “forge words and phrases, situations and even feelings that did not exist.”
Sisely has denied all of Migliorini’s accusations and says she breached her contract numerous times.
“She failed to show up on filming days on several occasions. After being warned,” he told the Huffington Post. “After two years and three visa refusals trying to get her to Australia, she left the country for a fashion show in Brazil during filming.”
Sisely said the finished documentary will support his claims.
