140 ‘sugar babies’ at UCL

Female students are flocking to a ‘sugar daddy dating site’ where 80% of relationships involve sex


Female students from UCL are flocking to a ‘sugar daddy dating’ website, it has emerged.

A total of 140 UCL students have registered for SeekingArrangement.com, which matches rich older men with good-looking women.

UCL is the tenth fastest growing UK uni on the site, one of eight in the top 20.

80% of relationships on the site involve sex

That puts the uni one place down on last year’s 9th place. 

The site is used by rich businessmen with an average income of £170,000 a year. Sugar babies can sign up for free if they sign up with their uni email address.

In exchange for a relationship, they are lavished with gifts and even cash allowances. The average female student on the site receives £5000 a month.

A survey last year revealed 80% of matches on SeekingArrangement involve sex. But its founder Brandon Wade denied it was a form of prostitution.

He said: “Because the relationship between a sugar daddy and a sugar baby is romantic in nature, most sugar relationships will likely involve ‘sex’ … And because a sugar daddy is expected to be the generous gentleman, ‘money’ will always be spent on the sugar baby. I don’t see anything wrong (or illegal) with that!”
