Holy Cr*p! "UCF ranked among Top 20 schools where students seek 'sugar daddies'"

UCF ranked among Top 20 schools where students seek 'sugar daddies

The struggling University of Central Florida business major struck a deal.

Needing money, she turned to a "sugar daddy" she found on a popular website.

They had dinner. They had sex. Her take: $200

A few months later, when she needed to buy textbooks, she went back to SeekingArrangement.com. There, she found another "date" who flew into town. No dinner this time

1. Pratt Institute students had "nooners for art" at the Plaza.

Try not to be shocked.

2. Jesus Hussein Christ, this is depressing.

Selling out to keep from starving.

But it's been going on for a long time, long before the internet.

3. that's not a "sugar daddy", it's a "john"

And doing that for a mere $200 is epically stupid.

4. I don't see how it is that much different from match.com

Christianmingle.com or any of the other dating sites. It is just more honest about it.

And the old saying goes, "We have already established you are a prostitute. We're just figuring out the price."

And I suppose the converse is "We've already established out you are a lecherous old fart who is not attractive enough to date women straight up. We're just figuring out the price."

Personally I cannot imagine paying somebody $3000 a month for regular sex, but for some people that may seem like a much more practical solution than an unhappy marriage.

6. Online dating = Sex for money?

 

That's a new one.

7. Nothing is free. It is only a question of when you pay the bill.

You don't mean to suggest that people using eHarmony and the other sites aren't interested in sex, do you?

And likewise, not every "sugar daddy" is in it for the sex. Some of them actually are willing to pay good money to have a level of companionship that is otherwise missing from their lives.

8. Online dating is only different in how people meet. Once they do, it's the same as normal dating

 

If anything it encourages people to go a little bit slower in the very beginning, since they don't know each other and tend to stay sober and in public.

Though you probably know that, which I guess means that you're trying to argue that dating in general is kind of like prostitution. I have heard that argument before and I think it's pretty weak. Money is certainly part of the picture in dating, but going out to dinner and then getting it on is a far cry from paying cash money for it.

15. Why are we so quick to judge these other arrangements as prostitution?

I'm just saying there isn't that much difference between the "sugar daddy" thing and a lot of marriages I've seen. If anything, the sugar daddy thing is a lot more honest.

11. I'll have to alert my wife that she's a whore.

See, we met on the Internet. Since online activities are a common interest of ours, we happened to run across each other in that environment.

Now "back in the day", we told people to try an meet prospective dating material by participating in hobbies. And that was pure and chaste. After failing at that, some people would participate in "singles mixers" or other similar situations where they got to meet people who they might find interesting enough to date. But again, it was all pure goodness and light.

But now that people are doing that on the Internet, well clearly they're all just whores.

9. Your body, your choice.

 

Seems like a pretty good arrangement to me. Get fed, get laid and get paid? Can't beat it.

10. Yes, it is prostitution.

I mean lets call a duck a duck here. Call it escorts or sugar daddies or whatever you want. It's sex for money. You wouldnt be there if it wasnt for the money. Right?

12. Well 0.34% sounds like a solid basis for launching a moral panic to me...

Seeing as UCF has something like 60,000 students and we don't know how many of the 200 are actually actively participating.
