Trading sex for Tuition Money?! WTF?

Trading sex for Tuition Money?! WTF?

Postby Endo Rockstar » Fri Aug 05, 2011 11:09 am

I don't know why I should be surprised, but I am. This seems a bit crazy to me.

Perhaps surprisingly, the figures provided to the Huffington Post — which appear in a chart on page 2 of the story — indicate there are 345 SeekingArrangement.com "sugar babies" who attend the University of Wisconsin. Only New York University (498), the University of Toronto (471) and Ohio State University (398) have more.


Its enterprising at least, but maybe its time to rethink those tuition hikes if girls are selling themselves to pay their education costs.....

I don't know why you're surprised, either. Young women having Sugar Daddies to help with expenses is nothing new. In this case, it just happens to be tuition which is a major contributor to those expenses.

It certainly went on in the 60s and early 70s, I can tell you that much.
Add in jobs at bathhouses and shady massage parlors, add in gigs at strip clubs, all with their attendant perks and opportunities. I am sure college girls have had this sort of side jobs since the beginning of coeducation.

Anybody remember the Barbara Hoffman murder story that was made into a movie? Same thing.

It's just another component of the "change we can belive in" economy.

This probably goes on for even less than tuition. I can't count the number of times a young lady who was getting a drinking ticket on State Street caressed my arm and said, "Isn't there anything I can do to get out of this? I mean, ANYTHING?"

Their mouths said "anything" but their eyes said "BJ".

The Acme Breathalyzer stayed in its case, in case anyone was wondering.

Acme Breathalyzer resulted in a 0.13 reading for alcohol, and 0.09 for semen. *urp*

Just doin' my part to keep it classy 'round here.

I think that's a different context, at least for most. A few drinks plus the incentive of not getting busted might cause a young woman to do something she'd regret later.

And of course, there's that "hunk in a uniform" thing. :-)

OK. I have decided to reveal myself:

Hunk in a uniform nails it.
