Romney Wins Coveted Sugar Daddy Endorsement

We got a really important press release this morning from SeekingArrangement.com, a website where old rich guys who want to pay for sex can find young women who want to sell it to them. Because GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney gave a poor lady some money over the weekend, the site says he “has shown all other politicians that being a good Sugar Daddy is about helping others,” and has therefore bestowed him with its endorsement for the 2012 GOP nomination.

This is a ridiculous publicity stunt, of course (and here I am writing about it!). I think “Due to Economy, More Women Than Ever Considering High-Class Whoring” probably would have been a better press release title. But any reason is a good reason to revisit my story about SugarDaddy.com, in which I name-check SeekingArrangement, and go on some “dates” with dudes shopping for carnal treasure online. Read it!
