Targeting College Students & Economically Vulnerable
A former sugar baby and college student stated the experiences had “affected my mental health a lot” and that they now “regret that I had to turn to doing that just to survive.”
Another former sugar baby and college student stated: “Without a doubt, you are putting yourself in an extremely vulnerable position. There is a reason the men have chosen SeekingArrangement over eHarmony.com and that is to have sex with younger girls.” In the same article, one sugar daddy said, “I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that having a very young sugar makes an already exciting experience even hotter.”
One student who signed up on SeekingArrangement noted the vulnerability of being a student on the site, saying “They [sugar daddies] know that you’re hard done by and I think a lot of the time they push their luck because as students we are in a bracket of society that is less likely to say no.”
SeekingArrangement currently claims to have more than 3 million college students on its platform.
“Why hope for financial aid when you can guarantee it with a sugar daddy?” says Brandon Wade, the site’s founder and CEO. “Student loans lead to endless debt, which amounts to more than a new graduate can handle.”
SeekingArrangement targets students struggling with student debt.
SeekingArrangement gives “Free Premium Memberships” to students who sign up with their school email addresses.
