Sugar Baby Students

Is it legal to be a “Sugar Baby” student? Are websites such as legal? These websites offer access to rich older men. Today and on 09/16/2011, Dr. Phil investigates the latest trend in online dating: sugar babies hooking up with sugar daddies.

College girls and recent graduates who are struggling with mounting debt and a weak job market are turning to websites, such as, that introduce them to wealthy men who, in exchange for companionship — and maybe sex — help them pay their bills. Is this the Internet version of the world’s oldest profession, or just a niche dating site?

Clearly, prostitution is against the law. I don’t think this is against the law because it’s between two consenting adults and they aren’t exchanging money. Well – the men aren’t directly handing over money in exchange for sex. They are merely ‘contributing’ to the financial welfare of a Very Pretty Young Lady.

The girls make a point that they would have never met the men except for the existence of the website(s). And visa versa. The men are lonely. It’s a normal psychological and physical need to be with other people. The girls may be lonely as well. We don’t know that they’re not.

So, although this might be tested in court of law and  a federal prosecutor is probably in discovery right now – it’s still a dangerous practice.  The website owner, Brandon, only checks out how wealthy the men are and if they can afford these women.  They could be mentally ill or have a criminal background. Brandon stated that he’ll not assume liability if one of the women gets raped.

On the show, Dr. Phil gives Brandon a final chance to speak:

“Not all sugar babies are gold diggers, but they are goal diggers. G-O-A-L. They all have goals,” he says, explaining that most of the women on his site have a college education or are working toward one, trying to become financially-independent adults like Sunny. He claims that 180,000 college girls from top universities are a part of this site.”

Dr. Phil tells the women that they have plenty to offer men. “From a guy’s point of view, I can tell you what guys say among themselves about this kind of situation when you’re not there. This is not in your best interest. I think that in your heart of hearts, you can’t possibly feel good that you’re putting a price on yourself, that somebody wouldn’t want to be with you just to be with you. My point is, if you do this, you never know. All the time you’re doing this, you’re not forming a meaningful relationship that is based on mutual care, concern, love, regard, commitment and future planning.”

Although there’s tons if jibber jabber about the legality and morality of this practice – not too many people seem concerned with how much disease is being exchanged here.  Quite a few of the men who subscribe to these websites are married.  Married – meaning they’re having sex with their wives, their ‘Sugar Babies’ and any number of unsuspecting participants.  Sheesh.

It’s frightening to realize how dangerous this new trend  of sugar baby students – that exchange ‘whatever’ with rich (and maybe married!) men – and – where this is leading to.  Is the world evolving into a much badder place?
