Hi folks,

Came across a story this morning that I was quite frankly very surprised at -

Young female virgins pay for sex

11:00 AEST Thu Oct 30 2008

Young female virgins are increasingly turning to male prostitutes for a "clinical" way of dealing with their first sexual experience, Australian sex industry workers have revealed to ninemsn.

The women, mainly aged in their late teens to early 20s, are paying upwards of $250 per hour for male "escorts" to deflower them.

Global Escorts owner and founder Berney told ninemsn his Melbourne agency had noticed an increase in the number of female virgins seeking their escort services over the last five years.

"They're younger ladies who tell us they're virgins … they want to do it gently and clinically," he said.

Vivian from the Sydney-based Escorts for Women — whose male escorts charge from $250 to $500 per hour for "private time" — said she had also noticed the trend.

"Some of our clients are virgins," she told ninemsn.

"I'd say they are generally aged in their early 20s and are women who want their first time to be special, or to be taught how to make love."

But things don't always run smoothly despite the young women paying big money for the experience, Berney admits.

Some of Berney's escorts had told him horror stories of virgins who had been unprepared for the reality of what is involved.

"It can be hard when the young lady is so inexperienced … they don't know where to start and can't handle it," he said.

"Psychologically it's a problem for them and they just clamp up."

And while some Australian women are paying to lose their virginity, some women overseas are cashing in on theirs.

Italian showgirl and bikini model Raffella Fico announced plans in September to sell her virginity — for $1.8 million.

The 20-year-old told an Italian magazine she was offering herself up for the cash to help pay for acting classes.

Natalie Dylan, a 22-year-old college student, is currently in the process of auctioning her virginity through a Nevada brothel, to pay for her tuition fees.

Berney, whose Global Escorts Agency was the first business in Australia to offer sexual services for women when it opened 20 years ago, said it is still very much a niche market.

"Compared to Europe, the industry in Australia is tiny, but it's growing as society's attitude towards sex and women changes," he said.

The type of women seeking out male prostitutes were "many and varied", Berney said.

"We have clients who are professional white collar ladies and some are your average run-of-the-mill working girl."

"Some ladies will basically save up to do it once a month, or there are others who are about to get married and want to have one last fling.

"Then there are women who have a fear of going out there and meeting the wrong man, perhaps because they have been treated badly on the first occasion."


I was going to post it in AH but felt I might get more intellectual responses than "w00t! every guy's dream!" and "Sign me up!".

Basically just wondering what you think. Of course the first time can be daunting but would you ever have resorted to this? Is there method in their madness?

That's a bit bizarre to be honest. If you waited for the right person, then the first time you have sex shouldn't be a big deal, and certainly not something to be dealt with 'clinically'. To each their own, but surely they would be more comfortable with a guy they know rather than a random stranger? People make too big a deal out of losing their virginity- it's just sex.

I can see a certain amount of logic to it tbh and I can see where they're coming from.

There is a lot of pressure on women these days to be sexually confident. This seems like a very pragmatic and practical approach for some people who would like to get the nerves/worries about their first time/couple of times out of the way so that they feel comfortable and confident when it comes to forming real sexual relationships and having their first emotionally involved sexual encounters. Without sounding crass, it's like getting a few private lessons on something before going on to try it out in public, like getting a few dance lessons before you start going out to clubs.

Not everyone is a sentimental type

I have heard a fair amount of horror stories concerning girls losing their virginity over the years to understand why this might be an option for some people. For most losing their virginity is a very uncomfortable experience, and these guys won't be in it for their own sexual pleasure, they're there to do the job, so hopefully there are elements to it that would be easier. It's a bit sad that the word clinical is mentioned, sex is supposed to be about a connection between two people, abd they make it sound like a procedure in a hospital.

It wouldn't be my style, the only thing I would be able to think about would be how many people has this man put his thing in before me. I didn't lose mine until I was with someone I trusted and cared for and I certainly would never pay to be deflowered if the right person had not come along.

Early 20s - and yes, plenty of girls that age are virgins. No offence but it's views like yours (they "should" be experienced at their age) that puts them under enough pressure to resort to drastic action like this in the first place.

Where's the guarantee you'll meet "the right person" though? I agree people shouldn't feel under so much pressure sexually, but I can understand the mindset of someone who's sick of waiting and just wants to experience it - if that's with a "professional lover", all the better.

Fair play to you. It took me seven months of moderating the place to realise that...

The article seemed to suggest some girls didnt know excactly what was going to happen. As in, chap wipes it out and the girl is like "ehm, where does he expect me to put that? " kind of way.

I think that's what curly was getting at, they dont have to be Jenna jamesison but atleast know where the bloody thing goes...

I'm not saying they should not be virgins. I was surprised by the statement they didn't know what s€xual intercourse was about. Unless you're living without any connection to the media (I'm thinking Amish here) there is no way a girl in her early 20ies wouldn't know the basics about birds and bees.

I agree with that bit but I can also see why some women would like to have their first experience to be from someone who is experienced as well though. They might want to just get it out of the way and not want to have to accost a random stranger in a club or whatever.

Ah I see - sorry. The way I read it was: not that they don't know what sexual intercourse involves but that they're unprepared for stuff like the need for lube/foreplay, the fact that "tightening up" due to nervousness is gonna prevent penetration from being accommodated, the soreness/discomfort that often accompanies the first time etc...
