Instead, it was Kitten, with her fake fur and her high heels and tight jeans and her elaborately etched glitter makeup, who drew everyone's eyes—a very beautiful Bratz doll.It was Kitten, 23, lip liner slightly darker than her lipstick, lips that I sort of wanted to touch, who made a woman in her forties stare so angrily that her husband forced her to change seats so that her back was to Kitten.But on all the traditional dating sites, the women didn't just want sex. Thurston wanted sex, and he wanted eagerness about the sex.So one day when he was at the gym, he saw this old guy with a very pretty young lady, and when Thurston expressed confusion to his trainer, his trainer explained that the geezer was her sugar daddy and that the young fawn was his sugar baby.Drama, according to Thurston, includes taking your time to decide whether you want to have sex, having any motive beyond the one you stipulated up front (which was greed), and a presumption that you will be courted. Sugar dating is the oldest dynamic around: Rich person contracts poorer but younger/hotter person into some combination of obligations that includes but is only rarely limited to straight-up sex.As long as people have had money and other people have wanted money, this has been a thing.He went to some of the best colleges and grad schools. Just ask his ex-wife—even she wouldn't say a bad word about him.But you know how it is, the fires dampen, and he wanted a lot of sex—“I'm Italian! ”—and eventually they divorced, and Thurston wanted something, mainly a lot of sex without having to beg for it, and to be found attractive again.
Seeking Arrangement is just one of several sugar-dating sites, but a popular one.In 2013, Google executive Forrest Hayes spent his last hours nodding off on his yacht after the sugar baby he met on the site injected him (willingly) with heroin; he (less willingly) died in front of her.(The sugar baby, Alix Tichelman, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter this spring and was sentenced to six years in jail.)There was a really famous TV star at the bar of the Manhattan restaurant where I met Kitten Babypuss (not her real name), but not one person was looking at him.Thurston Von Moneybags (not his real name) was scammed once by a girl in Houston. She didn't show to the meet, and that's the last time Thurston Von Moneybags ever got hustled again.He had arranged to meet her so that he might size her up and determine whether he wanted to give her a monthly stipend in exchange for regular sex and sometimes maybe dinner. Was she blonde and blue-eyed, the way he liked them? Now he meets the girls for lunch before he offers them an ahem arrangement, and he is very clear. A thing you should know is that there are very few people to root for in this story.
