    No unnecessary people .. sugar baby
    How do you define a "necessary person"? Because, call me old fashioned, but my definition doesn't include little gold digging hoes who seek out superficial relations with creepy objectifying old men via elicit, surreptitious platforms they really hope their families don't find out about :dontknow:

    Yep, everyone has a past. Some begin the job of sweetening it by lying to their friends: 'Oh, no I don't have sex with them... they just give me the money for my dazzling personality.'
    And so what if they have sex with them? As long as its consensual what on earth is your problem?

    I hate to break it to you but you can get paid to show up and ask questions if you're an escort/sugar baby. You should read up on sugar babies and escorts before making sarcastic remarks in a desperate attempt to look tough.

    You can be a sugar baby who doesn't have sex with the sugar daddy.
    You can, but you are unlikely to get any clients.

    As I said, sugar baby =/= prostitute.
    And as I said, in the vast majority of cases it is simply a euphemism for prostitute, just as 'escort' is.

    Denying that is either misleading people into thinking there is a queue waiting to give them money in exchange for going 'Oh I know...' / 'Ha-ha, very funny' a lot, or helping con people who are having sugar sex into thinking that it's not sex work they're actually doing.

    A variety of things means I don't have any problem with people choosing to be paid to have sex.

    I do have a problem with people who want to be paid being ripped off by the predators who are out there looking for fresh victims, and the way to help minimise that is by helping them be clear about what it is that they are doing, whether they're calling it 'sugar babying', 'escorting', 'prostitution', or anything else.

    I haven't said that it never happens. But it's very rare. (If you want to be paid to show up and ask questions, get into market research...) The prejudice against sex work means that people doing sex work to denying it to their friends is much more common.

    You should read up on sugar babies and escorts before making sarcastic remarks in a desperate attempt to look tough.
    I'll just say that when I was asked to give expert evidence in a court case involving an escort a couple of years ago, I had endorsements from a rather large set of sex work projects and academics in the field saying I knew what I was talking about.

    The only people who are actually against it are unattractive men afraid they will never get girls and ugly old shrews who are jealous, it's a perfectly reasonable lifestyle choice.
    Now, forgive me if I misunderstand, but I thought most of the 'sugar-daddies' were 'old ugly shrews' who were minted and had to (in effect) pay for it. So surely the guys who'd be close minded to it are the working classes who actually get girls from their looks not their money or worse working class men who aren't particularly attractive nor unattractive so the girls look over them as they don't quite have the body, but they have no money either. Either way you look at it I stand no chance of ever getting a girl.. even a sugar baby So sad. I so sad

    How many marriages are basically long-term prostitution? We shouldn't blame women for choosing to get into these kinds of relationships when the whole society is geared towards rewarding men highly in preference to women and whilst there is still a very difficult labour market for women, with well paid jobs hard to access in many areas.
