TAMPA (FOX 13) -

You probably won't agree with what she's doing, but that isn't going to stop the 28-year-old who goes by Elizabeth Raine.

"It's just really important to respect other people's decisions even if you can't understand them," she told FOX 13 by phone.

Her decision? To auction off her virginity to the highest bidder.

"I really just saw it as a unique financial opportunity I wanted to take. It wasn't out of desperation," Raine insisted.

She just recently showed her face on her website after keeping her identity hidden. She claims to be a medical school student and says she was a double major in college.

"Being non-judgmental and being compassionate towards people, that's what led me to medicine. That's a big part of what this project means to me," she continued.

It's a project local mental health counselor Kathy Fountain doesn't see ending well. She says it could lead to long-term damage.

"She might have children one day and this is going to follow her. What if her name forever as an internet name is the 'virgin whore?'"  Fountain offered, referring to the name of Raine's blog.

The very adult auction began on April 1 but Raine insists this is no April Fool's joke. The high bid is $800,000.

She says a common question is 'Why is such a gorgeous woman still a virgin at 28 in the first place?'

"I most often explain it being busy focused on my dreams and my passions," Raine explained.

Raine says while you may not agree with her, you should hold off on judging her.

"Why shouldn't a woman be able to have sex when she wants, with who she wants, for reasons that are good enough for her. That's what this comes down to me," she added.

The bidding ends on May 7 at 8 p.m.
