This Reality TV Show Is Just WRONG!

momlogic's Vivian: Really? A new reality show will feature Australian teens auctioning off their virginity to the highest bidder in a Vegas brothel? That's funny, 'cause just yesterday, this brand of hijinks was simply referred to as "porn" and "jailbait prostitution!"

Check out this video (though you might want to grab a couple of Tums first):

Lock up your daughters! Australian filmmaker and sometime pimp-daddy Justin Sisely is coming to Vegas. His new reality show, "Proof Pure," will offer up virgin cherry to the highest bidder -- and for their time (and hymens), the nubile young things who'll be auctioned off will receive $18,000 ($2,000 of which will go to the brothel hosting the auction).

Sisley decided to film his show in Sin City after the Australian government warned him he'd face prostitution charges there if the show went forward. Um ... DUH. We also have a pesky little thing here in the U.S. called "statutory rape." But Sisley wisely chose to film in Vegas, where giving it up for cash is perfectly legal -- even for 16-year-old girls. (Sixteen is the age of consent in Vegas.)

The Sydney Daily Telegraph leaked a quote from one of the non-virgins-to-be (named, ironically, Veronica Peach), and she claimed that what she was doing wasn't quite prostitution: "Technically, I'm selling my virginity for money," Peach told the Telegraph. "Technically, that would be classified as prostitution ... but it's not going to be a regular thing. So in my head, I can justify that I'm not going to be a prostitute." Technically.

Sisley even plans on turning the show into a film, calling it "A Documentary for the 21st Century." Wow! That's just the kind of documentary I've been waiting for! NOT. 

Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I'd love to raise my kids in a world where you can't put a price on poontang.

What do you guys think?

I think it’s time to make prostitution illegal in Nevada. And to start putting johns and pimps in jail.

Here’s hoping this nasty film project falls flat on it’s face before it is released!

What a sad world we live in! Nothing is sacred anymore. I honestly don’t believe how anyone would even want to watch this disgusting, disgracefull act. Shame on you Vegas for allowing such a vile act to go on in your city.

NO man in his right mind would want her after. Once you sell yourself..nasty. NO man would give her respect!! She better not become a mother either!! She’ll regret it later.

Weird. I think 20 grand is LOW even if they are selling themselves. STUPID!! Maybe when reality sets in they will be proof to the young girls of today that you don’t want to be like the girls on tv because they are souless and are in so need of attention that their future of prostitution and lap dances is what they’ll be. I think virginity and making the most of yourself is priceless! Men want wholesome girls!!! I promise you that is what they want. Unless you want to be a one night stand the rest of your life. SO SAD!! STUPID for allowing for anyone to take advantage of you. They are OBVIOUSLY getting the better end of the bargain NOT these girls!! Don’t make me loose faith in the good in humanity. I’m in shock, the horror stories just keep getting worse. When will the madness end???

Women give it up for WAY less. If she’s an adult and this is what she wants to do it’s none of our business. However, I think it’s pretty stupid to give a cut to a brothel. I’d just auction my ownself.

For it to be legal the virgins would have to be registered by the State of Nevada as prostitutes, which can’t occur until they’re 18. Since the State has very tight control of registration they probably wouldn’t allow them to so so for the filming of the show. I doubt it will ever be filmed.

Prostitution isn’t legal in Vegas. They’d have to go out of the county for that.

Although the entire idea of this is completely wrong in a modern day scope, this really isn’t much different than japanese geishas back in the days. Their virginities were often sought after and were more often than not, much younger than 16. A majority of the country, U.S., actually mandates that 16 is the proper age when a young woman has full privleges over her body, and in most states its even the legal age to wed. Though any younger requires parental consent. As well as the fact that we have maintained some parental rights as far as teenage sexual encounters go. But going back to the geisha thing, the only real difference is that this is being filmed and the painted women of the “old days” were not. Just as a small notation as devil’s advocate.

@black iris - Why? So it can be like every other state in the country that still has prostitution, only the kind where STDs are rampant, girls are heavily abused, and drugs are a large factor? Legalizing prostitution would be the smartest move - at least then it can be regulated so it’s SAFE.

@Danielle, 5:50AM - Really? Men have sex with women who aren’t virgins all the time. What difference does it make if she made a profit or gave it up for free?

@Danielle, 5:59AM - I find it amusing that you consider 20 grand a low price for her virginity, considering you and most of the women on this site probably gave yours up for the cost of a few dates. Maybe you should have taken the 20k?

@Anonymous posters - all correct. Glad to see someone talking sense.

People, this isn’t the most savory of shows, but the truth is that prostitution has been around for thousands of years. As long as there are human beings on Earth, there will be prostitution. It’s not pretty, but it’s a fact. Making prostitution illegal will not get rid of it. It will only make it more dangerous and unhealthy for all those involved. When it is legal, it can be regulated, taxed, and made as safe as possible for all those involved.

That’s probably because he can’t find any 18 year old virgins.

I hate ALL reality TV shows and this seems as boring as the rest. I think prostitution should be legal in every state. I am a pro-choicer like that, it is a womans body she should be able to do whatever she wants with it. I do think in order to auction off her virginity regaurdless off the various age of consent laws, she should be at LEAST 18 and hopefully 21, give her some time to really think this through. and as for not being able to find a “man” to take her after the fact, wow really do you think that wer’re all that shallow?
