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?
