The woman who sold her virginity for $780,000 after putting it up for auction is now claiming that she was victimized and exploited.
Catarina Migliorini, 21, of Brazil, said she did not see any of the money she was supposed to make from selling her virginity last October to a Japanese man named Natsu.
"I felt I was a victim…I was misled by Mr. Justin Sisely," Migliorini said. "I believe he is trying to defraud me and others."
Natsu, 53, is a Japanese millionaire who won over American bidders to get a date with the woman, who said she would use the money to help build homes for poor families in her country.
Migliorini said she did not lose her virginity, because the man did not match the description.
The auction for her virginity was part of a documentary called Virgins Wanted, produced by Justin Sisely.
But Migliorini is now blaming Sisely for not giving her the money and for exploiting her.
"I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it. If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute, just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer.
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."
"I agreed to go along with [the auction] because Justin said it would be the best way to draw attention from the media about the project," she said.
Though Migliorini denies actually losing her virginity, Sisely said they have "footage to prove otherwise."
Migliorini signed up for the project three years ago when she saw the advertisement casting for virgins.
