When Bailey Gibson was growing up her life revolved around the church.
Her strict upbringing saw her being sent to an all-girl’s Christian boarding school.
The young woman believed in the scripture of the Bible and was saving herself for marriage.
But in a dramatic turnaround, the 23-year-old is now selling her virginity to the highest bidder.
Bailey became disillusioned by love after her ex-boyfriend cheated on her. Now her first sexual experience will be at Nevada‘s famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch.
The young woman who was raised by adoptive parents in California, hopes to use the money to make a better life for herself.
Bailey wrote in a blog post: ‘Society perceives me as a deviant, and I am okay with that. At the end of the day, it is my body. I have the right do what I want with it.’
‘Going through the Bunny Ranch allows me to legally have sex for money. Does this make me a prostitute? I don’t know. If you take a picture once, does that make you a photographer?’
‘I do not think that capitalizing upon your purity makes you a bad person. Just like having sex with multiple men does not make you a bad person. We all make choices. Mine was to wait. Now it is to sell.’
Bailey went on to reveal that she was given up for adoption aged one.
Her biological mother already had another child and was trying to study at the same time. In the end she was unable to cope.
She was eventually taken in by a strict Christian couple in Sacramento, California.
Bailey wrote: ‘I was not allowed to watch TV, listen to any music other than Christian music, have friends over, or have sleepovers ever.
‘If we did watch a movie, it was on the Hallmark or Disney channel. If we were allowed to watch TV, we were allowed to only watch programs like Little House on the Prairie.’
When Bailey turned 16 her adoptive parents sent her to an all-girls boarding school in Missouri.
After graduating she was contacted by her biological father and went to live with him for a short while in North Carolina.
She then moved to Wisconsin to live with her fraternal grandmother.
There, she met and started dating a Christian boy. The couple agreed to wait until marriage before they started a sexual relationship.
But Bailey was left devastated when she found out he had cheated on her by sleeping with his ex on Valentine’s Day.
The couple tried to get past the infidelity and entered couple’s counselling.
During the therapy he revealed he had cheated on her a second time.
‘After grieving for a while, I came to the conclusion that waiting until marriage to lose my virginity was the wrong decision, because my ex-boyfriend wasn’t worth waiting for,’ she added.
‘So, I decided that I was going to get something for my virginity — something that benefits me and my life.’
‘I wanted to lose my virginity in the most profitable way possible. That’s when I found Dennis Hof and the Moonlite Bunny Ranch.’
While Hof did not respond to her first email, he eventually agreed to speak with her.
He then set up the auction, which is now being run on the ranch’s website.
Bunny Ranch is notorious for selling girls for sex. In 2008 they sold the virginity of Natalie Dylan for millions of dollars.
Hof said: ‘She wanted to save herself for the right guy and live what she thought was a wholesome and righteous life, and the world threw her a nasty curve ball.’
‘So many millennials find it difficult to get their footing in today’s post-recession America, and young women have it harder than anyone.
‘I applaud Bailey for using every commodity at her disposal to make a better life for herself and cultivate a prosperous future.’
The brothel will keep half of the final bid price, while Bailey will keep the rest.
