They are educators. They are women. They are mostly between the ages of 28 and 33.
SeekingArrangement.com, which bills itself as “the #1 online dating website for sugar babies and generous men,” is now boasting that some 40,000 public school teachers of a certain moral caliber have joined the website in an attempt to… seek wealthy, older men for “mutually beneficial relationships.”
According to SeekingArrangement, the top five school districts in the country for sugar-baby teachers are (in order): the School District of Philadelphia, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Los Angeles Unified School District, the Clark County School District (in the Las Vegas area) and the New York City public schools.
Data is self-reported by the women who use the site when they initially sign up.
Further digging into the treasure trove that is SeekingArrangement’s sugar-baby data set reveals that the average public school teacher who uses the site is between the ages of 28 and 33. She (or, certainly, he) seeks about $3,000 in pampering and financial assistance each month from the benefactor on the other side of the bargain.
While some of these women are no doubt falsely claiming to be teachers (it’s much better on the resume than “erotic pole-aerobics instructor”), it’s also almost certainly true that actual teachers using the site are concealing their occupation. Having your superintendent find out you’re looking for a man to exchange classroom calculators for passionate nights of full-contact trigonometry isn’t going to help your career.
My teachers weren’t exactly “sugar daddy” bait…
But how many teachers would meet “sugar daddy” standards? My high school teachers were mostly older ladies in sensible shoes. I had maybe one teacher in my entire public school experience who would have gotten an affluent gentleman to pony up for protractors and printer paper.
Have things changed that much in our kids’ classrooms?
