Whom NOT to retain as a family/marriage counselor

This headline in today's UK Telegraph astonished me:

Student auctions off virginity for offers of more than £2.5 million

"A student who is auctioning her virginity to pay for a masters degree in Family and Marriage therapy has seen bidding hit £2.5million ($3.7m). "

She's a San Diego student, with a degree in "Women's Studies." Apparently her sister paid off her degree by working as a prostitute for 3 weeks, so little sister is going to cash in. She says in the end of the article that "It's shocking that men will pay so much for someone's virginity, which isn't even prized so highly anymore."

This is really sick. There are many unmarried women who give up their virginity. Wrongly, I think, but at least most of them believed themselves to be in love. This is just a cold, hard business calculation. And what is with the sick men who'd put up that kind of cash for something like this. Wouldn't care to meet them either.

Does the four letter word that begins with an "S" ends with a "T" and has "LU" in the middle of it still exist? Or is it too politically incorrect to utter/think that word? And since she's from soCal, I suppose I'd better add the word "TOTAL" in front of it. And the kicker is the field she wants to go into. Imagine coming to this creature with marital problems where one or more of the spouses is playing around on the side. I can just hear HER advice: "stop worrying, sex is no big deal."

I truly feel sorry for prostitutes, who through bad circumstances, feel they have gotten trapped in that web, and feel they have no where else to turn, but this person just doesn't seem to give a damn.

How the modern Hester is winning her "A."

I don't mean to defend her, but have to state the obvious: she wouldn't be able to do this if men weren't willing to pay for sex.

precisely...they're worse than she is. No man who would do such a thing has honor.
