Brazil’s attorney general, Joao Pedro de Saboia Bandeira, ordered an investigation in Justin Sisely’s documentary Virgins Wanted claiming that Sisley could face charges of ‘people trafficking’.

Brazilian, Catarina Migliorini, 20, is set to make £487,000 from the sale of her virginity to an unknown Japanese man following an online auction.

Sisley, whose documentary also auctioned a man’s virginity, had planned to sidestep legal problems by having the couples consummate their agreements on board a plane between Australia and the United States.

Bandeira has called on the Australian authorities to revoke Migliorini’s visa and send her back to Brazil.
