It has been revealed that around 100,000 Australian university students are paying for their shopping trips, beauty treatments and nights out with the help of Sugar Daddies.
That’s right, dating website SeekingArrangement.com revealed this week that the number of women signing up to be a Sugar Baby has grown in 2016, with the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology leading the way with 92 members, according to the Courier Mail.
SeekingArrangement is an American company that allows Sugar Babies to get money for spending time with older men who have a proven income of over $200,000. The website insists the women do not have to have sex with their Sugar Daddy.
The website looks to have hooked in students, who receive, on average, $2,700 a month from their Sugar Daddy.
Monash University has the second highest tally of new sign-ups with 87 and Griffith University on the Gold Coast, was third with 85.
The University of Melbourne ranked fourth with 84 and Deakin University has 77 new members.
The University of Sydney fell from its top spot last year to number eight with 69 new Sugar Babies.
Seeking Arrangement spokeswoman, Alexis Germany told the Daily Mail that the website is a way for students to ‘get the money they need for school without dedicating precious study hours to low-paying part-time jobs,’
Maddison, who is a 27-year-old student and UNSW told the Courier Mail that she has three Sugar Daddies and is currently seeing a 45-year-old man who lives interstate.
However, she doesn’t love him but they ‘’both know what we want out of this relationship. He has asked me to only see him as an exclusive Sugar Daddy, which I happily agreed to,’ she said.
‘I receive gifts, beauty treatments, lingerie and handbags. He also paid for my breast implants, and I get an allowance. It means I will graduate debt free and can focus on other things when I finish,’ she said.
