In 2014, tragedy struck Katherine Stone’s family when they lost their Washington state home in a fire.
As if things weren’t bad enough, the family didn’t have any home insurance and, due to financial complications, were forced to keep living in the burned-up Seattle property.
In the wake of the fire, Stone, now 20, was searching online for ways to raise money so that she could help her parents buy a new home.
That’s when Stone came across an ad for legal brothels in Nevada and got an idea:
Stone decided she would sell her virginity.
Stone’s first course of action was contacting Denis Hof, who owns and operates numerous legal brothels in the state of Nevada.
After some convincing, Hof agreed to help Stone out
With the support of her family, Stone packed her bags and jetted off to the Moonlite Bunny Ranch where she currently resides.
During an interview with “Inside Edition,” Stone said:
“I was definitely scared throughout the whole thing. I was intimidated because I was brand new to the sex industry.”
Since putting her virginity up for sale, Stone has received countless offers from men.
In fact, bids are as high as $400,000
Despite the high offers, Stone has yet to pick a viable suitor.
While Stone says she is only doing this to help her family, she is taking some accountability for herself and is not willing to take the first high bid she receives.
She wants it to be the right guy, both for her and her family.
Hof explained to “Inside Edition:
“She hasn’t found the right situation. She’s had guys that she’s liked that didn’t have enough money and she’s had guys that had enough but she didn’t like them.”
While Stone knows many people aren’t okay with her decisions, she’s embraced her choice and plans on following through, no matter what:
“The whole time I’ve been here, (the brothel) I’ve come to terms with what I’m doing. I’m definitely ready.”
Hof has reportedly agreed to not take a cent from the deal when it actually goes through.
