Students Sell Sex to Pay Off School Loans

Harvard Students One of the Top College Users of Sugar-Daddy Website

As costs for tuition soar, college students are scrambling for ways to pay off their student debt. In the latest exposé by Huffington Post, we're clued into this alarming new trend of higher education students turning to online sugar-daddy websites to pay for school. The "arrangements" many of the members agree to often include sex and some sort of money transaction. One such website, SeekingArrangement.com, shared some statistics about its student userbase with HuffPo, which revealed a good number of Harvard students on the site. Here is a list of the top 10 undergraduate universities attended by the "sugar babies":

  1. New York University: 498 users
  2. University of Toronto: 471 users
  3. Pennsylvania State: 434 users
  4. Ohio State University: 398 users
  5. University of Wisconsin: 345 users
  6. University of Oklahoma: 312 users
  7. University of Georgia: 281 users
  8. University of California at Los Angeles: 253 users
  9. Harvard University: 231 users
  10. University of Minnesota: 218 users

Other top colleges include UC Berkeley, ranked at 13 with 193 users, followed by University of Michigan with 189 members and University of Southern California with 183 sugar babies. Many students use their official school email addresses that end with an .edu in order to get the free account upgrade from SeekingArrangement.com. This helps the site compile its data on the student demographic.

I agree with TrèsSugar Assistant Editor Tara Sharp that these girls can definitely find a more responsible way to pay for school if they put in some time and effort, and that in this case, the ends don't justify the means. It's sad to see the amount of students on the site more than tripled compared with stats from 2007, which is partly thanks to its sneaky marketing tactics of buying ads that pop up when people search for terms like "tuition help" and "financial aid." I'm wondering, do think these sugar babies knew what they were getting into?

In general, the tougher the school academically, the less attractive the women. I wonder who the 231 users at Harvard, and the 193 users at Berkeley really are? I went to both schools, and I gaurantee you, there are almost zero good-looking girls at either (especially Harvard).....

I think they know where the girls attend college because of the .edu e-mail address requirement which ties them to the institution...

who are you to judge how they support themselves, or say what's responsible. and how do they know where the girls go to school, because the girls said so? lol, much more exciting to say "im sleeping w/ a harvard co-ed" than, "im sleeping with 20-something waitress/dropout/single mom/crack whore". its what the men want to hear.
