“Sugar daddy” dating sites such as SeekingArrangement.com are aggressively targeting college students — with free premium memberships for signing up under an .edu email plus plenty of assurances that being a “sugar baby” is safe, empowering and profitable.
But sugar babies typically do not, in fact, have control over these relationships, which often turn dangerous and exploitative, experts said Wednesday at a “World Without Exploitation Youth Summit” held in Downtown Brooklyn for high school and college students.
“Sugaring,” as it’s called, is seen as a legit potential sideline at New York University, one of the summit’s attendees, Julianny Monegro, 19, told The Post.
“All you’ll hear [on campus] is ‘Oh, yeah, like whatever, I’ll just drop out and become a sugar baby,’” Monegro, an NYU sociology student, said.
“Or, like, ‘That’s how I’ll pay for school,’” she said.
“And I think a lot of women don’t realize the position that they’re placing themselves in, and the subjugation that they’re sort of willing to go through to have a man pay for their things.”
