Prostitute sells sex for Charity

God loves the working girls. At least he does if he is like me.

SANTIAGO (Reuters) – A Chilean prostitute has auctioned 27 hours of sex to raise money for the country’s largest charity during an annual fund-raising campaign.

Maria Carolina became an overnight celebrity in the conservative Roman Catholic country, making news headlines and appearing on talk shows since she made her unusual donation to the televised charity event, which runs for 27 hours starting on Friday evening.

“I’ve already auctioned off the 27 hours of love,” Maria Carolina told Reuters on Wednesday, saying she had raised about $4,000. “One of my clients already paid. It seemed like a good deed to him.”

Adult prostitution is legal in Chile. Chile’s two-day Teleton fundraiser is endorsed by television stars and aims to raise funds for poor, disabled children.

Speaking about Maria Carolina’s unusual donation, campaign organizer Mario Kreutzberger said he would not encourage “immoral” activities, but said he would accept her pledge.

“Everyone can do what they want, but if someone tells me that they’ll do something immoral … I’m not going to encourage it,” Kreutzberger, who as “Don Francisco” hosts the long-running “Sabado Gigante” program on the U.S. Spanish-language Univision network, told local media.

But Maria Carolina, who advertises her services on the Internet, defended her money-raising scheme.

“There are people who are going to be donating money that’s a lot more questionable than mine,” she said. “The only thing I did was publicize it.”

Rubies are now a special consideration barter item…

I’ve had these rubies for a while now and while they are nice, I decided I would rather have thirty paintings and meet thirty artists in Hawaii. So I’ve started trading one ruby for one painting to local artists. I started with thirty and am now down to 26. After all the rubies are gone I will put together a website and hopefully a show of the 30 Ruby Art.


New Trade Item. Do you want to be in a Movie?

I have concluded another trade and I think you guys will like what I have to offer. I traded two rubies and the certificate for psychic services for a speaking role in the next film Hollywood producer/director David Gaz makes. David Gaz currently has a film at Cannes in France.

The problem with trading

As those of you who have been around for a while know, I have been trading stuff for a while. Starting with the old skateboard here are the list of my trades.
1) I traded .50 cents for an old veriflex skateboard.
2) I traded the skateboard for a piece of Folk Art by R.A. Miller. The guy I traded with actually sent the R.A Miller and another piece of art I had admired by Willie Jinks called “Been long time sent take shit” I kept the Willie Jinks. (both artists are highly sought after folk artists)
3) I traded the R.A. Miller for over 70 rubies. (I also made an identical copy out of tin before sending the R.A. Miller off)
4) I traded fifty rubies for a sailboat.
5) I traded the sailboat back for 47 rubies and a sword when the guy realized he wanted the boat back but had ‘lost’ three of the rubies.
6) I gave one ruby to the little girl who lives next door so she would have something precious to put in her jewel box. It was probably the prettiest ruby of the bunch.
7) I traded four rubies to my friend the jeweler in return for him making silver jewelry with 12 rubies. So far he has given me two pieces. He is making the rest.
8) I gave Mink Hippie one of the pieces of jewelry for Valentines day.
9) I traded the other piece of jewelry for a moving company to provide a big truck and some labor when we moved.
10) I traded two rubies for a two hour session with a georgia psychic
11) I traded two rubies for something else that is pending but pretty cool

Not bad for .50 cents, right? So currently, as a result of this 50 cents, I have, a very happy girlfriend with a custom piece of jewelry. All of our stuff moved (truck rental and labor). The Willie Jinks painting and the R.A. Miller copy. A ninja sword and the offer to go sailing on the boat that was mine for a while any time I want. 40+ rubies. 10 rubies to be set in jewelry soon. A two hour session with a Georgia Psychic. Good Karma for making a little girl happy. And something else that I will reveal soon. So what is the problem with trading?

The problem is that I don’t really know what I want out of all this. Frankly, I guess I would rather just have the rubies than a piece of polluted land in the middle of hell or a tenement filed with rats in Detroit. The truth is, when I realized what an expensive proposition it was to have a sailboat, I was just as willing to trade back as the sailboat guy, the difference was that having made a deal, I would never ask to trade back. I admit it though, I was happy to take the rubies back even with a few of them missing.

The problem is that I need to figure out what I want at the end of all this. I will try to make a wishlist here:
1) A house or land in Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Madagascar, Europe, Turkey, Indonesia, the Philippines, or Mexico
2) An airplane and flying lessons
3) A round the world trip
4) A beautiful 1934 Convertible Packard Coupe
5) A lifetime supply of wine, coffee, or something else essential to my life
6) A funky little business

The problem is that I don’t really want to be saddled with a bunch of ‘stuff’. That’s why I am so attached to the rubies, they are small, pretty, fun, and valuable. So, if you have something that you think might help me to achieve the above dreams, make me an offer. Currently available are:
1) rubies (around 40)
2) psychic session
3) sword
and soon…..
4) something else

email me with any offer
