19-year-old model recently auctioned off her virginity to a wealthy Abu Dhabi businessman online for over 2 million pounds. She said that she did this in order to pay for school and do some travelling. The bought and paid for encounter will take place in a German hotel where Giselle will be accompanied by security guards to ensure her safety.
The wealthy Abu Dhabi man had to beat out a Russian politician and a Hollywood actor from Los Angeles, to win the auction. This story has been gaining attention in the media as of late, but is it because this is a shocking story or because our culture has become obsessed with sex? Or better yet, is it another way for humanity to examine our own shadows? Perhaps we can begin to observe and reflect on whether or not we have forgotten our true nature.
‘If I want to spend my first time with someone who is not my first love, that’s my decision,’ she said. ‘The fact that women can do what they want with their bodies and have the courage to live their sexuality free against the critics sets a sign for emancipation’. She added: ‘In retrospect, how many would probably give up their first time if they could have 2.5million Euros instead?’ Giselle’s final statement above about the financial side of this alone shows just how far removed our society has become to the understanding of how sacred the act of sex truly is or is intended to be. Leaving all judgement of right or wrong aside, simply ask yourself the question; does this feel like something that comes from the heart? Or does it seem to come from the ego? These are the types of questions we’re being begged to ask these days as we are pushed to act from the heart.
Societally there is also quite a disconnect between the physical act of sexual intercourse and what it represents in terms of connection, union and partnership. Giselle feels that her decision to sell her virginity is a form of emancipation. I suppose that’s one way to do it, and realistically it’s her body so it’s her decision. I want to be clear — I am not here to judge that, but it is important to see the deeper picture here. This story provides us with a great opportunity to reflect on our own thoughts around sex, actions like this and dig deeper to find out what it means to us and society as a whole. Time To Reflect Recently, there has been a ton of attention put towards things like sexual harassment,scandals and pedophilia
– not just at a general public level but in Hollywood, politics and more. It seems everywhere we turn there is some new sex scandal waiting to be uncovered or something shocking in this realm and this story is exactly that. But what can we take away from this? Can this be viewed as an opportunity to reflect on how our society and culture views sex as a whole? Looking at it from a ‘society can be a mirror’ perspective, are we being challenged to think about these actions and see truly why they are happening? Can we use these experiences to observe our own judgements? Views of sex? How we view genders? Can we begin to see the truth about ‘elite’ individuals and why they have their power? There may be some of us who look at this story and are shocked or turned off by her actions. But is it possible that instead of feeling this way, that we can see why she might really be doing this? Move into a space of compassion for what may be someone who has lost her way from her heart like many of us have? Begin that conversation amongst friends and family instead of one of pure judgement.
