File under “Creative Ways to Pay for Graduate School”: 22-year-old Sacramento State grad “Natalie Dylan” is placing her V-card on the auction block to raise money for a master’s degree. She wants to study family and marriage counseling to become a psychologist, so there’s no need to worry about how she’s going to explain this little boondoggle to her kids. The auction will go down at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch (a legal brothel in Nevada), and she hopes to rake in $1 million. Maybe all those strippers who say they’re “just trying to pay for school” aren’t lying after all!
We wish Natalie all the best, and we certainly know that pursuing an advanced degree is not always the easiest route. But if you don’t think you’re virginity is worth that much (or you already gave it to someone for two beers and a plate of calamari), check out our survival guide on funding graduate school.
