The rise of the Sugar Baby! More than 1 in every college classroom boasts female students seeking Sugar Daddy providers says dating site, SecretBenefits.com.
You know that pretty girl in your boring ‘Intro to Biology’ class? You know the one – Well, the odds are good (and getting better every day) that she might be keeping a sexy secret – She may be looking for a Sugar Daddy – a gentleman who will reward her for her companionship with money or other gifts.
According to recently leaked enrollment data, an astonishing number of young college beauties are turning to sites like Secret Benefits, a leading online meeting place for people looking for mutually beneficial relationships. How many are there? At most colleges… 1 Sugar Baby in every classroom, 5 in every lecture hall.
While the numbers vary from campus to campus, the number of verified sugar baby profiles often rises above 500 or more per school – with that number exceeding 1,000 at top universities. This means that even in the smallest classroom, there is likely one secret sugar baby, and probably even two or more.
With sugar dating representing a way to break into the world of high society, perhaps it’s not surprising that the bustling big-city girls of NYU top the charts, boasting an incredible 1 out of every 11 female undergrads. The big city is expensive, and 50% of NYU’s full-time undergraduates receive some kind of needs-based financial aid. Even that meager assistance doesn’t go very far, and a large percentage of savvy Manhattan ladies are turning towards sugar daddies to help them make up the difference.
That means there are two, possibly three sugar babies in every NYU classroom – up to 20 in every lecture hall. As Blue Eyes himself famously crooned, “if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. “ Now, a growing group of young ladies are proving they have the drive and the initiative to “make it there” in ways their classmates never would have imagined.
Female College Students daring to be sugar babies:
Why do these women do it? Well, in addition to the obvious reasons (what financially strapped college student couldn’t use a little easy cash for tuition, or bills?), often such relationships include the benefits of mentorship, connections and career guidance.
Sugar Daddies, who tend to be successful in the world of business, are in a position to offer a unique perspective, and a level of access that gives these ambitious young women a leg up on their peers. Considering 40% of recent college grads are underemployed (even in jobs that don’t require a degree), these women are getting an edge on the competition.
“The connections are the biggest benefit to me,” says Ashley, a film major at UCLA.
”My Sugar Daddy gets me into exclusive restaurants and parties I’d never have had access to. Through him, I’m building a network of industry contacts that will benefit me long after I’ve graduated.”
At notorious party school, Arizona State University (ASU), the numbers are also high, which will not come as a surprise to anyone who has spent a tequila-soaked weekend there. A more open-minded student body results in a higher percentage of potential sugar babies. ASU boasts an impressive 1 Sugar Baby in every 14 female undergrads.
Imagine the lecture halls of ASU, in which every row contains one coed who is living a secret sugar lifestyle. Go ahead and try to spot her – if you can.
