SYDNEY, May 9 (UPI) -- The blonde medical student who was selling off her virginity has decided to pull the plug on the whole thing.
The student, who goes by the pseudonym "Elizabeth Raine," opted to pull out of the sale despite receiving a $801,000 bid.
"With the blessings of my management and the high bidders, I have decided to put a stop to this kerfuffle (to describe it nicely) and return my focus to my medical training," she wrote on her blog. "
The 28-year-old was offering a 12-hour date that included an offer of her virginity. Raine was planning to hold the date in Australia because of legality issues."I still do possess some spitefully strong beliefs about virginity, prostitution, and a woman's right to do as she damned pleases, but school is my first priority (as it has been for my entire life). At this point, I no longer care about the auction, at least not nearly enough. This was a very easy decision."
"I hope you are not too disappointed, I do realize this is another virginity auction stopped short. Honestly though, having tried it, I think there is always going to be something. I will be discussing this further in a later post."
