#60: Confessions of a Sugar Baby (EXPLICIT)

You've heard of a sugar daddy. A "sugar baby" is the other half of this type of relationship. Did you know that millions of American women are "sugar dating" to graduate from college debt-free, and that the Internet is making it easier than ever? In this episode, Anthony picks up a 27-year old woman en route to dinner with her sugar daddy, where she will earn $1000 for her time ("nothing sexual at all.") Listen as she opens up to Anthony about: how the transactions happen, how much she can earn, and why she believes for her, sugar dating = female empowerment. EXPLICIT/NSFW.
