Not Sex Ed: Sex For Education
At our school, tuition and other expenses are over $50,000 a year.
Meanwhile, the stock market and other investments are way down. Our parents have less money to pay for our education. Our schools have less money to provide financial aid.
What’s a student to do?
One New Zealand woman found a way to get college money: on the Web, she auctioned off her virginity.
The other bad news is that she only got $32,000 for it. That would almost cover a single year’s tuition here.
Am I crazy, or is there something wrong with a world where women have to become prostitutes in order to pay for their education?
I’m not saying it’s never happened before. But in societies that call themselves civilized, there has to be a better way to pay for college.
