A 27-year-old American medical student is planning on selling her virginity to the highest bidder on the first of next month, April Fool's Day.
Raine, who said she has never seen a naked man before, wants to make at least $400,000 in an auction to be held on her website.
"At the ripe age of 27, virginity fits me like a glove," Raine, not her real name, wrote on her website. "It is unexpected and unconventional, yet exhilarating and empowering."
Raine said she will donate at least 35 percent of the auction money to a charity that helps women in developing countries.
"Now having made the decision to sell my virginity, I cannot imagine losing it any other way," Raine wrote.
The medical student-virgin describes herself as a 130 pound, 5-foot-10-inch tall blonde with green eyes. Raine writes that while she values her virginity, she does not think it is something to be saved for someone she loves or is a "testament to my honor, virtue, or purity."
"I value my virginity as something that is very much my own and a testament to my free-spirit and independence. Please consider this as you contemplate your bid."
Raine makes it very clear that whoever the winning bidder turns out to be, she is not planning on falling in love with him.
"Love is not a part of this arrangement. It is only of a sexual and financial nature."
Some critics dismissed Raine's auction as just an April Fool's stunt, the Daily News reported. Raine, who has kept her identity a secret, has not responded to those accusations, the newspaper said.
"My identity will be kept a secret from all but the final bidder," Raine wrote.
