College Students Now Have to Prostitute Themselves to Pay Tuition

White Gold - This Element Will Power Every Home In America

collegedebtcollapse

There’s no doubt that the cost of college is one of the biggest issues in America today. Hell, it practically fueled the Occupy movement in 2011, and it has helped propel Bernie Sanders to the national spotlight. You may not agree with either of those movements, but they do reveal how much anger and frustration there is over the cost of tuition.

This is no small matter. We have an entire generation of young adults who followed the rules, and it practically ruined their lives. They were told that going to college was the only way they would amount to anything, so they did what was expected of them. And all they have to show for it is their parent’s basement and a mountain of debt that can’t be paid off or excused. Financially speaking, we have a lost generation on our hands that is pretty much screwed for life.

Of course, anytime people are in a desperate situation, they often turn to desperate measures to keep their lives on track. And sometimes, those measures include selling their bodies. College students are no different. In fact, it’s become increasingly common for students to become ‘sugar babies’ in an effort to pay down their soul crushing debts.

Nearly 150 students at a Norfolk university are paying for their tuition by becoming Sugar Babies, according to a study by Seeking Arrangement. The website, Seeking Arrangement, is a site where older men and women, known as Sugar Daddies and Mommies, pay to meet attractive young men and women or Sugar Babies.

“There are two reasons why this is so appealing to college students,” explained Seeking Arrangement Spokesperson Angela Jacob Bermudo. “Number one is it is a great alternative to financial aid, college loans, taking on minimum wage job while having fun, and the second is among the young people is they are looking for another kind of relationship.”

As a Sugar Baby, college students get paid to provide companionship to their Sugar Daddies and Mommies. The company says on average Sugar Babies earn $3,000 a month.

The website makes it sound like these students are just hanging out and entertaining wealthy benefactors, but that’s pretty much the same thing that an escort agency will tell you (for legal reasons of course). These students are prostituting themselves to pay for a degree. And if their story is like so many college students that came before them, half of these degrees won’t even net them a good job.

So just how many of students are turning to this veiled prostitution to pay down their loans? According to Seeking Arrangement, 4 million people have signed up for their service, and 2 million of them currently have ‘sugar daddies.’

Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t anything inherently wrong with someone using this service. These are just consenting adults doing what they want to do, and Seeking Arrangement is merely helping these people meet. They’re just filling a demand in the marketplace. The real problem here, is that our society has created the conditions that force so many young people to make this tough decision.

We keep telling them that college is the only way they’ll be successful, when it’s simply not true. Our culture is pushing so many kids into fields that don’t really have a whole lot of jobs, and the laws that prevent these students from declaring bankruptcy and absolving their debts, has incentivized colleges to raise tuition to absurd levels. And in exchange for that debt, they often get a watered down education and a thorough indoctrination in leftist ideologies and political correctness.

We’ve created a situation where for millions of students, the only way to afford what is often a pipe dream, is to sell their bodies to horny old rich guys. And when prostitution is the only way for million of people to get ahead, you know that something is fundamentally wrong with society.

    So now their education includes practice at getting screwed to survive in our f**cked up system.

    • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

      If we weren’t so ignorant, we wouldn’t get screwed so often.

    • Reverend Draco

      It’s not the world’s oldest profession for nothing.

  • Mike

    So now going to college gets you extreme sex ed and knowledge that you are having to give ‘it’ up to get anywhere. This is all thanks to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. They need to get out of the student loan business and let the free market bring the price of tuition down.

    • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

      So now we are going to blame the government for doing exactly what we asked them to do? The government didn’t loan anybody anything, they just insured that the loans would be repaid if the borrower defaulted, and they did. A free market has never existed in higher education.

      • Mike

        actually, yes it did. Loan companies used to give special rates on student loans long before the fed got involved. And as with everything the fed gets involved in it is ever so screwed up and overly expensive.

        • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

          What part of a free market requires the customer to chose the most expensive option? Again, the government has never loaned money to students.

          • Mike

            the point is, if the government were not involved, college tuition would drop by over half, because that would be the only way people would then be able to afford to go there. Try all you like to make it so the government is the good guy in this, you will still be WRONG.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            College tuition has been going up because of the increase in administrative salaries, in similar fashion as CEO compensation has been rising. What do you perceive that the government has to do with either increase? I don’t believe that any government is the good guy in anything they are involved in, so let’s see what you are talking about.

          • Mike

            administrative salaries stated going up when more people started enrolling in college. Considering college classes used to have 10-15 people and it went to 25-30 people of course administrative expenses and salaries went up. And again it all COINCIDES with the fed getting involved in the student loan business.

          • Wags71

            Tuition keeps going up because it can, due to government involvement in the guarantee of loans. If students couldn’t borrow the money, tuitions would be lower.

      • Fred Bastiat

        I didn’t ask them to create a unsupportable lending market, so who is this ‘we’ that asked for it?

        • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

          That would be the We the People who keep asking our federal government to do things that the Constitution prohibits it from doing, but that its members can garner power and wealthy by aiding and abetting, with our consent.

          • Wags71

            There is no fucking “we” involved here. They do whatever the hell they want and there isn’t anything we can do about it other than stop voting and tell them we don’t need them at all anymore.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            There is no We because there are too many me’s like you, most of whom never read the Declaration of Independence, or didn’t understand the duty it laid upon them when they did.

          • Wags71

            Right, I am an individual. Not a ‘we’.

            Participating in a fraudulent voting system to vote for a corrupt politician is not the way to fix it. It’s the way to make sure it stays that way forever.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            What is the value in carping about a problem that you won’t even attempt to fix or offer a solution for? Nothing fails better than failing to try.

          • Wags71

            I am trying by intentionally not participating. That is the only way that will ever work, but it has to be done by many others. Follow my lead in turning our backs on them. But always think for yourself.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            Becoming inert only aids their cause.

          • Wags71

            It absolutely doesn’t. Imagine if everyone followed my lead and no one voted. The world would not see the elections as legitimate and politicians and government would have a huge credibility problem. Then all people stop following senseless victimless laws. Are they going to put everyone in prison or kill them? Not possible. And then everyone stops filing taxes. The IRS cannot possibly audit everyone. And then people stop sending their kids to school. Again, they can’t throw everyone in prison. Then people stop putting their money in banks and they all fail. They can pass laws banning cash then but no one cares. Then everyone starts growing their own food. Whatever laws they come up to stop that with will be ignored

            This is the only revolution. Their power crumbles without our support.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            What evidence do you have for believing that anyone in the world regards anything that our government does as being legitimate? Refusing to vote doesn’t have any effect in a situation where voting makes no difference. They don’t care about our support, just any detrimental effect that our resistance can have. What we don’t do, they can safely ignore, along with the rest of the ignorants.

          • Wags71

            I have no evidence because the people have always believed in being ruled by tyrants because few people think for themselves and break their programming. So I guess you’ll just keep on playing their game expecting things to change. What I say is pretty logical. They cannot kill or imprison everyone.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            You would have as much evidence as I, if you would consume a bit more of the output of the foreign press.
            I haven’t had a television since my last one was stolen in 1987. My news comes mostly from shortwave rather than cherry-picked Internet reports. That subjects me to a lot of propaganda, but just a different source of it, since all news is biased, by definition. If it isn’t new, everyone already knows enough about it to recognize blatant lies, unless they have been made as thick as a brick to prevent them from taking action on it, as sheeple have been.

          • Wags71

            Yet you are here on the internet. I have no evidence because it hasn’t happened in this country.

            Though I could argue that exactly what I’m now saying is what took the former Soviet Union down. The people stopped believing in their government and then they started ignoring it.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            Actually, the united states is well on its way to spending itself into insolvency in a similar way to that which destroyed the USSR.

          • Wags71

            The main difference being that the USD is the world’s reserve currency. It will last until that is no longer the case. It is the real reason for all wars now. And of course belief in the USD is what keeps the USD from being worthless and what keeps US politicians in power.

            Yeah true, and I’m not much of a believer in atheism as absolute fact the way he is. Not that I’m religious either. But he was who did convert me to an outright anarchist. I think I could basically write his scripts given a topic at this point though, so there’s no point in me listening anymore.

            Carlin was way ahead of his time. Imagine how much bigger he’d be today. He could run for president.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            He wouldn’t like being presidential.

          • Wags71

            True, same as anyone else worthwhile. I think the last reluctant president was George Washington.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            Washington was a more reluctant king than president. His fans wanted him to be our first king before the Constitution eschewed kingdom in favor of republic, and he never wanted a second term. Jefferson was almost drafted for a third term, but he told them that they’d have to find a replacement. He wanted to go home and try to keep himself out of bankruptcy, which he failed to do, dieing in it. Monticello passed into disrepair before the current owners bought it and restored it, as a monument to Jefferson and his life. All Americans should visit and tour Monticello.

    While it is frequently a good idea to buy a car, it is seldom wise to buy the most expensive and flashy model on the longest term financing that can be found.
    Frugality is not a factor in any of these educational financing nightmares, because in most cases, they bought more education than would be usable in the projectable future. Maximizing one’s literacy and numeracy before seeking opportunities to start at the bottom and build a career from there is always a more feasible approach to occupational success when rocket science is not involved.

    • Reverend Draco

      Frugality is a thing that has been propagandized out of common knowledge. Newer, bigger, more bells and whistles. . . these things have replaced fiscal – personal – responsibility.

        We all need to learn how to provide our own leadership, but it is difficult when most of us are taught early that our leaders are legitimate because our elders seldom do more than carp about what they should actively be working to change. This is our heritage, even in this country, where a single digit percentage of our leaders were literate enough in the history of individual liberty to suggest that we needed to separate from a rapacious king, and his attempts to stop us from doing so were the triggers to success.

    I was with you until you suggested that anyone could help anyone else think. How is that done? Learning is natural, and thinking is done in the process. The idea that external professionals is required for anyone to learn insures that the learner won’t.

        I entered first grade reading at a third grade level with a much bigger vocabulary, because my mother and (8 year older) sister started reading to me as soon as they got me home from the hospital after my birth. None of us should wait until we get to the public fool system to begin learning, because we will have learned to be bored by then. I decided to take a year off from classrooms after I exited high school in the middle of my senior year, and never went back until I lost traction in the job market, returning to vocational training instead of university.

        • Reverend Draco

          I, too, entered first grade at a higher reading level then my contemporaries, my mother having read to me almost from the day I came home. . . and having taught myself to read at age 3 (mom was in the hospital and nobody else would read to me, so I did what I had to do).

          The school wanted to skip me over 2nd, straight to 3rd.

          My mother refused, on the grounds that I was already younger than my classmates (having been born a couple of weeks before the cut-off date in September), and that it would cause my social development to suffer.

          Funny thing – being 2-6 years ahead of my classmates, a pudgy guy with glasses and always at least one book in my hands. . . my social development suffered anyway.

          I pretty much gave up on “school” after that, and concentrated on my education.

          • http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/political_reading_room/ disqus_3BrONUAJno

            My situation was similar, the cutoff being the end of october, and my birthday being on the 27th. I never really noticed any difference in my age versus that of my classmates, although I tended to be the runt. After I could read to my sister and mother, they stopped reading to me, and I turned to the family bookcase for refuge. My parents bought a World Book Encyclopedia as a joint Xmas present for my sister and I when I was in 5th or 6th grade, and I skipped the entire set, reading what interested me, ignoring what didn’t. I’ve always been a loner, but that hasn’t been a problem, for the most part. I’m just used to being considered stupid or deviant because I am an a eccentric iconoclast. I don’t suffer from it, but it does present challenges, as you have already seen.

          • Reverend Draco

            My family already had a Compton’s Encyclopedia when I was born. . . from kindergarten into 6th grade, I would read myself to sleep at night with a volume pulled at random from the collection.

            That’s what kickstarted my interest in science.

    A thief and a murderer are committing crimes against another person. A voluntary sex worker is not harming anyone, there is no victim. You have a right to use derogatory language towards anyone you please, but a thief and murdered is not similar to a sex worker. Your attempt to assert the false equivalency is not motivated by fact, so must be motivated by some other agenda.

    • Reverend Draco

      Probably raised by a single mother who couldn’t attract or keep a decent man. That’s most often the motivation.
