A 43-year-old Greeley-based sugar daddy who uses Seeking Arrangement and spoke on condition of anonymity for privacy reasons, has gone on at least 50 dates with sugar babies since he started using the site in September, he said.
The University of Colorado Denver was not far behind, with 105 registered students out of the nearly 10,500 undergraduates.
Joanne Belknap, ethnic studies professor at CU, said it’s one thing if students are simply watching TV or having dinner with their senior benefactors, but she wonders if true consent can exist when it comes to sex.
“With the sugar daddies’ help, I’ve been able to cut down on that to focus on school.” “They make sure I focus on things that are important.
They take care of the rest.” Vanessa meets her sugar daddies on the website seekingarrangement.com, dedicated since 2006 to setting up relationships between well-to-do older men and women and young adults who are looking to be supported.
“You have the huge power imbalance with gender, age, class and sometimes race,” Belknap said.
