Ladiesss! Is the idea that the country might careen over the fiscal cliff, thereby increasing your tax bill in 2013, getting you down?
Well, banish any worries about the clowns in our nation’s capital from your pretty little head. The Internet, it turns out, has already provided you with a solution. All you have to do is conquer any culturally inculcated resistance to the idea of taking bribes for access to your body and/or companionship. Simple!
SeekingArrangement.com, which bills itself as the Internet’s numero uno platform for connecting would-be sugar daddies with would-be sugar babies, has released a YouTube video trumpeting the virtues of “mutually beneficial relationships” as a hedge against national financial troubles. The site will make premium memberships free for “beautiful women” until politicians manage to arrest our flight towards the edge.
“Instead of feeling powerless, attractive women are improving their financial situation by dating successful men,” the video smooth-talks the viewer. (No uggos need apply, we suppose.) It goes on to boast that the average male user of SeekingArrangement.com is “39, college educated, and spends over $3,000 a month pampering the woman he is dating.”
The scare quotes around “dating” are implied.
Users of the service turned out to provide testimonials in the comments:
this site is no joke. only rich ass mother fuckers, i promise. millionaires and lesser versions but you can get very well taken care of on this site!! I highly recommend.
However, detractors have turned up, as well: “MY EXPERIENCE ON THERE WASNT GREAT CAUSE THE GUY TURNT OUT TO BE A LIER && SOOOOOO…” Your results may vary, in short. If you are, in fact, seriously considering taking SeekingArrangement.com on their offer, you might want to read this NYU Local tell-all.
Personally, we’ve always been more intrigued by the notion of becoming a financial dominatrix, but this is America and in America, there’s nothing we love more than hustle.
