By now you’ve probably all heard or read the story. A 22-year-old woman is auctioning her virginity online and multiple news outlets report that the bidding has hit $3.7 million.

Experts say it’s legit, as the “transaction” will be “executed” in prostitution friendly Nevada. What do our libertarians think of the auction itself and the way it’s being advertised?

This snippet from the FoxNews story jumps off the screen:

Some legal experts say they’re well within their rights to make the sale.

“It’s a First Amendment issue. You can advertise goods or services that are illegal where they’re advertised but legal where their performed,” said Marc Randazza, an attorney specializing in first amendment law. “What’s she’s advertising is as legal as toast with the crust cut off where she is.”

Well?
