The supposed medical student revealed her face in pictures on her website, though she continues to use the pseudonym Elizabeth Raine. The bidding ends on Wednesday at 8 p.m., so the amount she reports could surpass the current top figure.
The bidding has reached $800,000 for a slender, 28-year-old blond medical student who has agreed to sell her virginity in an auction.
The woman — who describes herself as 5-foot-10, 130 pounds with blond hair and green eyes — will close the auction at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Though she uses the pseudonym Elizabeth Raine, she asks to be called Liz, she is offering a sensual 12-hour date with a cashed-up suitor, which will "sharply" transform her "from virgin to literal whore."
And with the bidding almost over, she recently added new pictures that show her entire face and added some details about herself. They include her somewhat funny and distinguishing belly button, her degrees in biology and engineering, plans to receive both an M.D. and a Ph.D., being raised in Saudi Arabia and her mother's death in a plane crash when she was 10.
"And no, I am not socially awkward or cold-hearted, I am not gay (although I do sometimes think this is unfortunate), and I do not even want to get married. I am just uniquely me!" She writes on her blog "Musings of a Virgin Whore."
She said on her site she wants to protect her true identity — that will only be revealed to the winning bidder — so that it would not affect her professional life. The winner will meet with her for a 12-hour date, at which time her virginity will be offered.
Liz also said she can prove her virginity through an unbiased physical examination and/or polygraph testing.
Through extensive writing on her website and blog she explains that she believes this action, which she is doing partially because of the financial benefit, is right for her and she asks skeptics of her plan not to judge her.
The woman said she has never judged anyone for his or her sexual activities — well, except for rapists and pedophiles — and writes she understands peoples' views who think prostitution is morally wrong and should be illegal, though she said she does not think those people have a right force it onto her.
She said virginity loss is a commonplace physical experience and, "ideally, virginity should not be valued, and definitely not at its current rate," though a woman has the right to place her own value on her virginity.
"It is my strongest belief that young girls have no business whatsoever selling virginity. Even just a few years ago I would not have been prepared for this experience myself. I believe my mature age, advanced education, and financial independence are critical reasons why my virginity auction is okay, not to mention why my virginity is so rare," she writes. "So, my advice to young girls: please girls, sit on the decision for a decade, or close to it."
The details of the auction are well thought out. Thirty-five percent of the proceeds from the winning bid will be donated to a charity that educates women in developing countries. She also reserves the right to vet the bidders and not necessarily award her virginity to the highest bidder if she has concerns of her own safety.
