Sugar Baby

Let's talk Sugar Daddies
and no, I don't mean the candy.

Last week in small group, one of the girls told us about this "Sugar Daddy/ Sugar Baby" escort service that some girls are using to pay their way through college. Apparently our college paper had an article on it back in the Fall, and I had NOT heard of this! 
You can read the article HERE.
 (and please do, it will blow your mind.)
I had no idea this sort of stuff was even legal, and the whole thing just really bothers me. I cannot imagine abandoning my morals THAT much for money. The girl in the article talks about getting $10,000 a month deposited in her bank account for hanging out with this older man. What?! 

Honestly, that amount of money is pretty tempting. But I would NEVER submit myself to offering a service like that. Ever.  It says "sex" isn't in the job description, you can choose what you deem off limits with your "Sugar Daddy," but if a man is paying you a couple thousand dollars a month... he expects it. Let's be real.
And what is so wrong with the guy that he has to PAY a girl to even hang out with him?? That's a warning sign in itself. 

I feel like you're asking to be on a real-life CSI episode with this junk.
One of the girls in my small group has a friend who knows someone who does this. She said that the girl's Sugar Daddy is in Washington D.C.. She just texts him, and he deposits $2,000 in her bank account a month. Is this not the craziest thing you've ever heard of?

Do y'all know anyone who does this? Had you heard of it? 
I mean, I want to hear y'alls opinion on this craziness.

and I'm not gonna lie, I did check out the website. #noshame
I had to see what this place had to say for themselves.. and you can see the Sugar Daddy and Sugar Babies listed. 
go check it out... You know you want to see it.

Oh. my. word. That is something I would never even consider! No matter how much it paid! That's a lot of people at UGA that do it too! Crazy stuff!

When I was 16, I worked at a place where mostly people in their teens and 20s worked. An older man who worked there, maybe 6 or 7 years older than me, offered to buy me whatever I wanted, drive me around, take me out, etc. if I would "hang out with him" and "do some things".

I said absolutely not, and he quit not too long after.

It was the weirdest thing! I can honestly say as much as free things and $10,000 sounds, I just couldn't! It's not natural

Jordan said...

WOW! While $10,000 a month sounds nice since I have to pay $3,000 out of pocket each semester for school, I would NEVER do that! That's just disgusting!!

E said...

Uhhh... what?
Insane. Had no idea this was considered legal!

Lauren said...

I looked at it in curiosity, and even though I'm going to have masses of student loans after I graduate, I don't think I'd ever be able to bring myself to do this. I would just feel too much like a prostitute..although the money would be nice:)

O.M.G! I can't believe this! I seriously thought it was a joke. Don't get me wrong, I understand money is hard to come by these days, but there is NO way I'd succumb to doing THAT! This is just beyond crazy!

Kristin said...

MTV did a true life episode about this except it was called "True Life: I'm a Sugar Baby." I watched it and was quite disgusted by it. I would never lose my morals for $2000 a month deposited into my bank account. It's basically like you're selling your goods. I could just NEVER. I am super happy being somewhat broke, lol!

Laura Darling said...

Whoaaaa what???? This is crazy. I am scared to go read that article!!

Rachel R said...

I saw this too! I couldn't believe it!! What are these girls thinking? I would never compromise myself for that. Wouldn't it feel so much better to WORK and EARN your money at a great job then to be (let's be honest) forced to have sex with someone and act like you like them??

So weird.

Kristen said...

That is the craziest thing ever. And way too creepy.

We saw a documentary on this not to long ago. Crazy!

Melissa said...

The girl in the article only had one loan to pay. Her parents are paying her tuition. She wants designer purses. How about getting a job? So disappointing. It's hard not to judge, but this is something that you live with for the rest of your life.
And so many people are struggling financially these days. You have an extra $10k a month? Help someone who can't afford food or medical care!!!!!

Café Moka said...

Wow!!! I'm kind of shocked ha!

Meg {henninglove} said...
