29. Not about choices
A person who is financially hard up is under duress and will do things they would never do otherwise for money--especially when young. I'm sure you'll agree that anytime you are having sex with someone you don't want to have sex with, you are being victimized whether you realize it or not. And some of these young women think that it can be forgotten--until they are seeing a shrink twenty years later about it--not for "morality" issues, but because they are angry at themselves and at the predator.
Usually with the sex-for-grades crowd, the women are convincing themselves that they want to do it
and they like the guy. They often think of the guy as a boyfriend. It's not quite as much of a transaction for bucks as the sugar daddy thing. But in those cases too, there are often later regrets. I work in academia so I see a lot of it.

This is sexual predation by older fat cats with no scruples. Women who engage in this are victims and need to be warned about it. "It's not predation, it's capitalism"--has truth to it, if youre talking about rapacious, exploitative capitalism. Which you might.
