'Seeking Arrangement' site claims 68% of ASU students want sugar daddy

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) - We know college tuition is getting more expensive each year, and the number of students looking to offset those costs with the help of a sugar daddy is growing, too.

 
The site, SeekingArrangement.com, would like you to think of a sugar daddy as a wealthy boyfriend and a sugar baby as an ambitious girl next door. And with their latest poll, they're trying to show the number of girls next door at ASU is growing fast. 

With her two jobs and full class schedule, ASU senior Tavia Brown admits things can get a little crazy.  

"You don't have a lot of time to do your homework at a set time or if you have to open the next morning and you have class and you have to go work your next job," Brown said.

Maybe that's part of the reason more women are looking to SeekingArrangement.com, a website that hooks up young women - also known as sugar babies - with wealthy men willing to support them - sugar daddies. It's an arrangement Brown said she hasn't looked into. 

"If you need something or want something, I think you should always work hard to get it yourself," Brown said.

But ASU is apparently teeming with sugar babies. We're told 400 of them are registered on the site. Of the top 20 "sugar" colleges, ASU ranks sixth; Georgia State and New York universities hold the No. 1 and No. 2 spots. 

"It makes a lot of sense to train certain aspects of your character like working hard," said Brandon Wade, the CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. "But at the same time, I also believe in working smart."

Wade recently sent his employees to ask ASU students what they could use a sugar daddy for. Of 900 students, Wade said 68 percent of them agreed they could use a sugar daddy to help pay for books, clothes and even plastic surgery. 

Wade assures us it's all on the up-and-up.

"Prostitution is the exchange of money for sex and it's very transactional. A sugar daddy is a very wealthy and generous boyfriend."

But Brown said she'll stick to her day jobs. 

"That's not for me," Brown said.
