Katherine Stone is a 20-year-old who loves her family. She loves her family so much that she is selling her virginity for them. While that may sound counterintuitive, Katherine’s virginity auction has her family’s best intentions. In 2014, Stone’s family home in Seattle, Washington, was destroyed by a fire. They didn’t have home insurance and didn’t have the money to fix the damaged house. The family was forced to live inside the scorched house ever since. Now, Katherine is doing what she can to repair the house, and for her that means selling her virginity. “I found out all about the brothels and the money,” Stone said after seeing an ad on Facebook. “It made me think, ‘Wow, it’s a chance at fixing all that I need to fix.’” However, the only place where prostitution is legal is Nevada where there are 19 brothels operating in the state. She then moved to a legal bordello which is owned by brothel tycoon Dennis Hof. Hof, who says he receives two to three similar requests a week, agreed to arrange the transaction on his “ America’s Next Top Bunny Ranch Virgin! ” showcase. He even waived his usual 50% cut.
“Katherine has the one thing that every man in the world wants—and that’s her virginity, and it’s that priceless female commodity that this brave and selfless girl is putting up on the auction block to rescue her family from ruin and destitution. Whether she wins the ‘America’s Next Top Bunny Ranch Virgin!’ contest or not, this girl is a hero!” says Hof, with the big-hearted whore-monger announcing that he was waiving his customary 50% cut of whatever Katherine earns from the auction, so the full $$$ amount could go toward helping her family. “When it comes to hymen auctions, I think it’s only right to let the girl keep 100% of the cash—call me old-fashioned, but that’s just me.”
When I woke up this morning I did not anticipate that I would be writing the words “hymen auctions.” #WhyIWrite While Katherine awaits her hymen auction, she is still “contracted by Hof to legally provide services to gentlemen who are seeking experiences” other than intercourse, she said. “I have done small simple parties. Massage parties, stuff that has been very PG-13. My first experience I had here was the scariest one. It was all really new.” When people question Katherine over not losing her for love, she has an answer. “People say you are suppose to do it for love, but if you think about it, I am doing it because I love my family.” The Hof defends Katherine’s right to choose. “It is her choice. I don’t think it is a good idea for a girl to drink six tequilas and lose her virginity on the bathroom floor in a frat house … If she wants to (sell) it, I think that’s great.” At the moment, the highest bid for her virginity is $400,000, but she says the highest bidder might not be the winner. “I’m waiting for a man who I feel a connection with so that the experience can be special for both of us,” she says. “It’s really not just about the money.” Katherine, who one day dreams of one day becoming a lawyer, says she has no intentions of leaving the ranch after she pops her pricey cherry. “I anticipate to continue working at the ranch for the next five years,” she says. “I plan to go to law school in the future.”
