The University of Guelph recent-

According to SeekingArange-ment.com, 84 students at the
University of Guelph are “Sugar

as eighth on the website’s list of 
“Top 20 Fastest Growing SugarBaby Schools” in Canada. The
website itself functions as an on-line dating site that helps “Sugar

often students that rely on their
“sugar parent” to pay for tuition,
textbooks, and other costs asso-
ciated with attending university.
The relationship is based onfinancial grounds, whereinthe older person advertises anallowance for prospective “ba-bies,” which ignites the startof a “sugar” relationship. Ac-cording to the site, “It’s […]natural for younger men [and]women to seek out more expe-

Neustifter also advises that

“I think that [there’s an] as-sumption that this is doomedto fail or [that it’s] somethingnecessarily negative,” saidNeustifter. “Anytime there’s

concerning opinions that the sitewas aimed at university students.
