In what is still a rough economy for millenials, there are a surprising amount of people getting paid to do basically nothing except hang out with a wealthier stranger. They’re Sugar Babies and they’re all around us. What sounds like a seedy, dark-room deal is actually more legitimate and common than you might think, although its sketchy undertones are still somewhat unavoidable.

Amidst hundreds of dating sites and apps, there’s a whole slew aimed at matching wealthy, lonely Sugar Daddies and Sugar Mommies with “Sugar Babies” whom they’ll pay to keep them company. And yes, if that sounds like sex work (not that there’s anything inherently wrong with sex work), that’s because many people use those sites for sex, but it is really, truly, we promise, not all about sex.

Do you have something that says "Dad loves sugar?"

Maybe you should turn down those Snickers this Halloween and go for a Sugar Daddy instead?

According to Eater, you can go to The Cannibal to meet “attractive young Murray Hill businessmen” or find a “well-groomed Upper East sider” to split a $26 pizza with at The Mark Hotel. Of course, these fine places might not even let your 99 percenter single ass in there, so you’re welcome to join Team Brokelyn at Hank’s instead. But you’re paying, ladies.
