"It felt just like a normal relationship."

When Megan, 23, was planning her move to NYU in August 2012 for a grad-school program, she knew it wasn’t going to be cheap. She worried over the phone to a friend about the costs of living and joked that maybe she’d use a dating site to score a few free meals in her new, expensive city. Her friend suggested she try out sugar dating...

Megan put up a profile even before she’d touched down in the city and was invited out by a 47-year-old lawyer. She spent one of her first nights in the city enjoying fancy sushi and cocktails, and it pulled back the curtain on the privileged world of moneyed Manhattan. “I was skeptical at first about it because I was like, this is like the kind of thing that could attract a lot of creeps, but [it was] actually really nice.” A few dates later — and only two weeks in — she found a 40-something finance professional offering to pay her $1,000 every 10 days, in exchange for her company at dinner, over drinks and on occasional weekend trips. The relationship turned physical after a time. “I never felt pressured to do anything I didn’t want to do,” Megan says. “But, it did eventually reach that point. But it felt natural. It felt just like a normal relationship.” Megan collected an estimated $20,000 from her sugar daddy before they ended the relationship on amicable terms.
