A high-class Chilean prostitute touched by a charity telethon's bid to raise money for handicapped children has stepped forward with her own contribution - 27 hours of sex.
That's how much paid sex work the escort, Maria Carolina, has said she wants to contribute to the Teleton association.
The money she earns from the marathon session, scheduled for November 30-December 1, will go to the charity, Ms Carolina said.
She said she would post a picture of the bank deposit slip on her website afterwards to dispel any doubts.
"I am going to contribute with my work to a purpose that touches me deeply," Ms Carolina said.
She has spread her message through several online sites and television programs.
But the administrator of the Teleton foundation, television presenter Mario Kreutzberger, has thrown cold water on the proposition, saying it falls well outside his moral guidelines and he cannot accept it.
Ms Carolina, though, said she was determined.
"How can someone question a person who wants to put her job at the service of a noble cause?" she asked.
There actually is a Bible verse that forbids a church from knowingly accepting money gained through questionable means:
You shall not bring the fee of a prostitute or the wages of a dog (male prostitute) into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow, for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 23:18 ESV
