Meredith Vieira, Dr. Phil cover "sugar daddies" and "sugar babies": young women expect older men to step up and put them through college as "good guys"


Today, in a little episode called “Sugar Babies” (link), Meredith Vieira examined the practice of young women trying to pay for college by offering companionship to older men.  Is this prostitution?  No, it’s supposed to be strictly platonic, and the company monitors clients for TOS violations (site ). 
  
The idea that an older man will pay a gal’s way though school because he is a “good guy” sounds rather asinine.  What does that say about men who won’t?
  
  

But Dr. Phil had covered the same topic in November 2014.  Lisa Ling had covered it in "This Is Life", Sept. 28, 2014.
