Sugar epidemic?

The Clarion-Ledger published a big, huge expose on "sugar babies" at Ole Miss.  Yup.  Young, female college students are hooking up with older men through the internet in exchange for um, monthly support.   Sarah Fowler reported:


More than 200 college students at the University of Mississippi are registered with a site that promotes financial relationships between "Sugar Babies" and "Sugar Daddies" or "Sugar Mommas," according to data released Monday. 

With 247 students belonging to www.seekingarrangements.com, a website that sets up people for "mutually beneficial relationships," Ole Miss ranks 43 out of 50 in the country for "Sugar Babies," according to the site. The numbers for other Mississippi universities were not immediately available. 

The site defines sugar babies as "attractive people looking for the finer things in life. They appreciate exotic trips and gifts. Sugar Babies get to experience a luxurious lifestyle, and meet wealthy people on a regular basis."

A sugar daddy or sugar momma is defined as "successful men and women who know what they want. They’re driven and enjoy attractive company by their side. Money isn’t an issue, thus they are generous when it comes to supporting a Sugar Baby."

According to a press release issued by the site Monday, a sugar daddy provides an "average monthly allowance" of $2,800. 

Seeking Arrangements touts the relationship as a way for sugar babies to pay off student loan debt. The nature of the relationships is not made clear on the site. 

The number of students seeking sugar daddies recently hit a 10-year-high, the site claimed, with more than 2 million students registering on the site. .... Rest of article.
Ms. Fowler also posted a follow-up story today: 

On social media, Darby appears to share the day–to-day happenings of her life....

 What’s missing, however, is the life no one knows about. Darby was 19 when she met her first Sugar Daddy. In the four years since, she’s had eight Sugar Daddy “Sugar Baby” relationships.

Except for her best friend who introduced her to the lifestyle four years ago, and her sister, no one knows Darby meets men in exchange for money. Her roommates, parents and a former boyfriend all believe her on-campus job provides enough money to pay the bills. She does not regard how she does get her money as prostitution.

On average, Darby said she gets $2,500 a month from having a Sugar Daddy. While she typically has one Sugar Daddy at a time, there have been months where she's had two. It's self-preservation, she said. 

"There have been a couple times where I’ve had, like, two official Sugar Daddies at a time, keeping my options open," she said. "These type of arrangements, a lot of the time, are very short term. If I feel like the arrangement is kind of tapering off, I want to be able to have something set up so I don’t lose that currency, I don't lose that income." Rest of article.

Kingfish note: Apparently some of the students heard the old saying that it is better to be an old man's darling than a young man's slave (Sarcasm).   The real question is how long will it be before that police chief in Oxford and his crazy daddy figure out a way to start busting these girls and their um, patrons, for prostitution.  You just know they are working on doing so right now.

Do we have NO shame anymore? Prostitution is now acceptable since they are co-ed's. Sure hope none of my boys marry one of these "students".

OM girls doing scandalous things for money to keep up appearances is the least shocking news of the month. What is truly surprising is these men haven't realized they can get higher quality "services" for far less money in Vegas and other places.

Why is this a problem, our president paid a pron star over 100k, not to talk about a one night stand, now that's a lot of sugar.

Let's see; this bright young college student doesn't think about it as being prostitution, doesn't consider herself a hooker. But, she participates in order to get paid, and admits that it include sex. Only takes cash, although that doesn't affect the definition.

So - a physical relationship that includes sex, and gets paid on average $2,500/month per John - er, a, Sugar Daddy -- and sometimes has more than one at a time.

Don't know what she thinks it is, but in my day that was called prostitution. And in this case, I don't think it depends on 'what the definition of "is", "is".

Absence Of Morality Is Noted said...

These girls learned no respect for themselves in their homes as children. They grew through adolescence with no respect for themselves and a goal of getting whatever they wanted by whatever means available. Their mothers and fathers taught them nothing about self respect. They will raise their sons and daughters with the same model.

Regardless of the presence or absence of religion in their homes, growing up, a moral foundation and moral compass did not exist. We don't need religion in order to establish/learn a sense of values and morals. They missed out and so will their daughters.

Is it prostitution if I:

1) ask a girl on a date
2) but her flowers and dinner;
3) go to a $200 play;
4) spend $300 at a bar after on wine and drinks

And get laid?

No! That’s normal.

Pay the bitches light bill and all of a sudden you are an immoral hooligan guilty of prostitution subject to the penalties afforde by the system.

Grow up folks.

Your daughters are only doing what their moms did...just at a younger legal age.

What I found most interesting (and hilarious) is that "Darby" chooses not to tell her daytime boyfriend (aka "the one who gets it for free") about her lucrative part-time job. So now every frat guy with a steady girl is wondering...hmmm...she sure does "study at the library" a lot...?

I wonder how many hits that site just got? Makes you wonder when you see a UM girl on summer break toolin’ around in a Beamer or Mercedes heading to the beach if Dad or “Sugar Daddy” bought the car and paid for the trip. I knew of this several years ago and warned all the dads I knew who had daughters ‘‘tis was occurring. How else can you explain it? It’s prostitution plain and simple with SOME of the girls hoping to find one they can possibly marry. You’ve seen them...40, 50 and 60 year olds with gals in their 20’s. Neither one have no shame.

Sugar Daddies are successful business men, not pimps. They are not taking the added risk of going through an third party. But, I see little scorn for them in the comments.

Men have, for decades, lived with employed women and pretended to care about them...even marrying them if necessary... just so those women would support them through school or starting a business. They abandoned those women as soon as possible.

Did mothers tell their sons not to do that or their daughters not to marry a doctor or lawyer who was put through school or helped in their early business by a woman?

This seems more honest, frankly. And, it more honest than the gold diggers who marry for money and mistresses who want to break up marriages.

While I think these women are overlooking some potential risks, I can't blame them for doing something that will allow them more time to study and thus make better grades and to live more comfortably until they can start their chosen careers given current cultural values.

Why is it that anyone is surprised in a climate where financial success is the most important measure of personal success that the young people make such choices?

They have learned that you can do whatever the hell you want if you have enough money.

8:06, some women (moms) did do this. Not all good women who have become great moms did not.
8:02 has hit the mark in his explanation that some will do anything to succeed. No one knows what the long term damage this does emotionally to these young women who may never escape the chains of this.

Buying one dinner and going on a date in a normal persons view is to cultivate a relationship with someone whom you would find suitable to marry and have a family. I don’t fit into the category of being able to be a sugar daddy because I had my focus on my family and trying to make a living to support them, like many men who are out there.

Websites like the one in this topic is leading many people down a dangerous road.

And now we have a new version of the same suckers game. And somebody at the Ledger pretending to be a journalist actually gives them free PR. Go ahead sugar daddy, enter your credit card number and wait on a coed to show up at your door.

I'm an educated, professional woman, and this makes me very sad. My family had limited resources so I put myself through college and graduate school the old fashioned, honest way - waitress, short order cook, library assistant, university work study programs, scholarships, grant money, a few small loans and gifts, etc. It was very hard and I was as poor as the proverbial church mouse, but I made it through and am proud of what I accomplished without selling my body or my "companionship" or compromising my values.

These girls are sluts. They will do anything for money. I have no idea how their lives will turn out in the long run, but they will always be looking over their shoulder in fear someone will produce evidence of their prostitution, and they will live with the shame of knowing what they did. They will lie and try to hide their past from their husbands and children. Sad, just plain old sad.

Do men really spend that kind of money on dates? I mean, are those numbers typical? If so, then I'm REALLY glad to be gay - even in Mississippi, where it means a 100% chance of being 100% alone - for LIFE (or until a person moves at least a thousand miles from here).

Over five hundred Dollars, for a routine date? Who can afford that?

1:55, do not let them fool you. No one spends $500 on a single date. Hell, men do not give flowers and dinner on every date. $300 on wine and drinks, it is more like $3 on a beer or two. Damn sure do not go to a $200 play.
Those people are as out of date as the people who do not believe there are not prostitutes going to college on some sugar daddies dime.

Would your opinion be different if, instead of an up-front express sugar arrangement, a 20-yr. old had sex with her date only after the dinner and movie routine, or going out to a concert, or a bar hopping night, or a trip to the beach or to New Orleans? So many hypocrites on the subject of sex!

There has always been a quid pro quo for sex by the majority of our modern society. They probably wouldn't admit it, but how many women got/get married to ensure someone to help take care of needs that require MONEY -- a house, a car, groceries, clothes, light bill, etc. Same for men who married/marry a woman to help with the bills to get through college, med school, or someone to share the cost and MONEY it takes to live and pay monthly bills.

Whether it's sex in or out of marriage, much of the sex in our society today is simply a quid pro quo for something of pecuniary value -- whether it's sex in implied exchange for life's comforts (house, car, groceries, clothes, light bill) or just for a great meal and a trip to the beach. And, sometimes, it's an express quid pro quo exchange like the sugar arrangement where the money and everything is up front. With that money the sugar baby then pays her own light bill, and buys her own clothes, groceries and her own car, without marriage and the 55% likelihood of a divorce that comes with it. Wake up people, there is usually some type of quid pro quo.

Much of the problem is how most people in our society over 40 were raised to view sex. Up to about the post-baby boomer era, our culture and society taught that "sex" was to be taboo and shamed, except with your "married" partner. Thus, it was taught that one of humans' most basic and natural instincts, "sex", was limited to a "reward" that only came with marriage. Then divorce in our society became very acceptable. Considering that the divorce rate now exceeds 55%, most people don't believe that the "sex only with marriage" reward model is a realistic concept. So, people are also having sex more before/outside wedlock -- sometimes sex with someone who is their significant other, or just for convenience with a friend, or just casual sex. But, here's a news flash -- it is estimated that over 107,000,000,000 have populated the earth in our history! Considering the fact that pregnancy/birth doesn't occur even close to every time there's coitus, there has been a tremendous amount of sex consummated in human history. It's as old and as natural for people as eating or seeking shelter from the elements. And, yes, trading sex for something of pecuniary value is one of the oldest transactions in history -- and it will continue both explicitly and implicitly, just like paying money for anything else you want.

This is actually just a step down from another diversion, cam girls. A lot of college girls will get online, talk to strangers, and do sexual things on that camera for "tokens," funny money you buy from them. This just takes that one step further (and yes, I do visit some cam girls).

HDMatthias, MD said...

So sad. And the Hollywood "Women in Black," (some being prostitutes to the likes of Harvey Weinsteins), who go to the awards ceremonies dressed like hookers, wonder why men think women are sluts.

Fueling the fire of these "arrangements" is the avarice of the millennials. I've seen it first-hand. Many children of UM (rich) alums go to Ole Miss and live in houses BOUGHT by their parents in Oxford and graduate, often quickly getting married, with no debt and no understanding of debt. They are given a new car (if not given one previously as a student at Prep), and have no financial worries in the world.

At that point, their parents BUY them OUTRIGHT their first homes, so they have little understanding of finance, mortgages, budgets, etc. They grow to understand the word ENTITLEMENT, and lives their lives in this fashion. The grandchildren follow in the same paths.

I have no understanding of why many parents of MY generation think that this treatment, of indulging their childrens' every whim, is character-building. It leads (has led) to our world of instant gratification as witnessed in social media, consumerism, etc.

Call me old-fashioned. I am. Women are encouraged to exploit their own sexuality, coming to learn that it is a very fortunate attribute, rather than valuing hard work (of the non-exploitative variety), intelligence, and diligence.

I'm not the least bit surprised, and I believe that many women at even elite colleges are signing up to be Sugar Babies.

I was watching a female singer on SNL last Saturday, and I couldn't hear her voice, her music, or her talent, as every inch of her body (within TV censorship) was exposed, and her "dance" routine said, without any doubt, "Come F*** me." I am not a singer with talent, but rather nothing more than a body to be exploited."

I only thank God that I wasn't raised that way.

I guess I'll go to work, watch a good foreign flick tonight (I'm "foot-balled out" until next weekend), have dinner with a few good friends, maybe write a column or story, work on my thesis, play with my dogs, and call it a day.

"If you lie down with dogs and act like a bitch in heat, you'll get fleas."

@10:42 I fail to understand your reasoning. What does being a child of privilege have to do with being a sugar baby? That lifestyle is the status quo at Ole Miss and attending school there to earn the famous "Mrs." degree. A flip side would be many of those children of privilege go on to do just fine and contribute to society in a positive manner. It's all about SnapChat and the number of Instagram likes one can get for that generation. Idiot trust fund babies will carry on, for the others it will be survival of the fittest. The sugar babies will be able to survive in the meantime it seems.

Trainees Wanted said...

Well, Matthias is not MY hero. She only got away with what she said because she's a female. Had she been a man and posted that, she would have been flamed for days for her remarks.

But, she seems to limit her characterizations to women/girl students. The same situation exists with boy students at OM who never pay the condo payment (there's not one), never understand how the four wheel drive or BMW was paid for, enjoy the legacy frat life of whiskey and fine clothes, only pretended to have ever worked a day in their life and get jobs based on dad's 'recommendation' as soon as they graduates.

Not only do these whores live a high-life of entitlement, so do their mothers. Volvos, Land Rovers, tennis skirts, credit cards, lunch out every day, mom's day out three times a week and sleeping in on Sunday are the rewards for signing up to be a trophy wife. These OM girls are just in training, that's all.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
