More than 50 Cork students signed up for 'sugar daddies'; 'The minimum support I require is €1,200 a month'

A CORK student is looking for a ‘sugar daddy’ to support her to the tune of €1,200 a month, while a man has offered young Cork women up to €1,000 a week in return for multiple meetups a week with the “right girl”.

The details were revealed on online advertising sites for Cork, and follow concerns raised by human rights campaigners last week about sex-for-rent ads. 

The female student is one of several who are advertising for sugar daddies on free classified websites.

An agency based in the US, called Seeking Arrangements, has revealed that there are currently 55 students from Cork signed up to its database, seeking ‘sugar daddies’ or ‘sugar mommas’ to help them fund their lifestyle.

One student currently seeking a ‘sugar daddy’ on the free classified ads website wrote on her advert: “Good looking, friendly college girl looking for a generous sugar daddy to cover my rent and spoil me. Looking to build a long term arrangement with someone genuine, fun and discreet, good conversation and intimacy are vital to me.

“The minimum support I require is €1,200 a month. I am not interested in ‘once-off meetups’ so please do not contact me if this is what you are after.

“An initial ‘coffee date’ is required to ensure we are both attracted to each other and both agree on what will be provided from both sides of the relationship.”

On the same website, a male posted an advert, saying: “Looking to make life easier and treat a nice sexy young girl. Get bills paid etc. If interested please send age, location, description of yourself (or pic).”

Another advert, under the heading ‘sugar daddy seeks young princess to spoil’, reads: “Looking for a little princess 18/22 to have a discreet kinky fun-filled sexual relationship, to spoil and spend every Friday night locked away in a luxury hotel room and lots lots more.”

A spokeswoman for Seeking Arrangements said 23,000 students in Ireland are signed up to its website.

She said: “Rather than spending all their free time working extra jobs, domestic and international students opt for their own solution to their university fees — sugar daddies."

It was revealed last Friday that a property was advertised online by a landlord who was offering the accommodation in return for sex twice a week.

He said: “I expect nothing other than satisfaction twice a week.”

The advertisement sparked outrage from human rights campaigners, who said vulnerable women were being coerced by economic circumstances into a form of prostitution. 

The housing crisis, which has led to record-high rents, was also blamed for leaving people open to exploitation.
