18-year-old Rebecca Bernardo, a high school student from Brazil, is hoping to auction off her virginity to the highest bidder.
Bernardo uploaded a video to YouTube last month that explained her plan.
The video has thousands of views, and a new CNN story on Bernado is only likely to add to her infamy.
Bernado explained to CNN that the auctions was prompted by a desire to look after her bed-ridden mother, who suffered a stroke this year. According to neighbors Bernado never knew her father and her sister died years ago.
