Weak and desperate young people selling their bodies to pay for student loans. If this was another industry, I can all but guarantee that law schools would host a symposium on the topic and possibly start a clinic. I have a nagging suspicion that this abomination will not get widespread attention from the law schools. Why do you think that is?


I find it hard to believe that they have the actual number of members claimed.

Even less likely that these numbers represent full-time students, Prop. Apparently, SA gives various discounts and incentives for anyone who registers with an .edu address. So I suspect they're counting all such registrants as students, which the Atlantic article insinuates are full-time students. Most likely at least some of these are simply folks who have (or had) access to an .edu address.

Having said all of that, though, I don't doubt that students are a likely "baby" demographic.



Did the respective institutions report the "babies" in the JD-Advantage category?

Kim Krawiec

I would think that a JD is a distinct disadvantage in this setting, JoJo. Though perhaps I do not understand the demands of this particular marketplace very well.

No, breh.

Ha, good one, No breh. I suppose we could now make references to "law porn" and Sextonism . . . but why go there?


"In exchange, sugar babies receive “shopping sprees, expensive dinners, and exotic travels,”"

In other words, the necessities.


I would be interested in knowing if this service is popular at religious schools like BYU or Liberty.


Life in the "sugar bowl" is sweet indeed!

Profiles on SA include an occupation field (such as you would find on pretty much every other dating site), and members can select "Student" as their occupation. Seems like that might be how they're getting their number of students.

Kim Krawiec

Thanks Derek, that makes sense -- self-reporting sounds like an even less reliable method than counting the .edu addresses in this context, though.
