Capitalism Hits Home: Sugar Arrangements: Intimate Personal Connection For Sale [Clip]

The sugar industry or sugar arrangements
have mushroomed in the United States in tandem with the mushrooming costs of
higher education, and the shift of the tax burden on to the mass of people.
Without a college degree, young people face a wall in employment and future
opportunities. For almost all Americans, a college degree though comes with a very
heavy debt. College debt now outstrips credit card debt in the United State.
College students own a trillion dollars in debt, double what they did ten years
ago. The average US student carries over $37,000 in student loan debt and
takes 20 years to pay off that debt. Enter the sugar arrangements industry,
where young women and some, though many fewer young men, enter an arrangement
with a wealthy sugar daddy. The sugar daddy may pay tuition, credit card bills,
or anything that the sugar daddy and the sugar baby agree on. I’ll use the pronoun
she’ cuz the overwhelming mass of sugar babies are women. The sugar baby
serves her sugar daddy when he comes to town,
or whenever they’re mutually arranged contract specifies. Their paid
arrangements can include sex or not. The sugar baby arrangements sites never
mention sex and disavow sex, because then they would be closed. But sex is a
real presence in sugar baby and daddy arrangements. They usually include sex.
After the two of them agree on what they want, they said a payment.
The average payment is between two and four thousand dollars a month.

  1. Our culture is rapidly normalizing, and even glorifying, sexual exploitation (mostly of young women) through many popular TV shows and movies, such as "The Hustle" and others.
    It makes me sick how selling sex is being sold to younger generations as a form of empowerment…
    I even hear self proclaimed feminists espousing beliefs to this effect. It's like 3rd wave feminism has been co-opted by patriarchy…
    What can we do about this?

  2. Very sad but so true at the same time. I have been living on a college campus for a while and I have been seeing these types if "sugar arrangements"… unfortunately.
