I know public school teachers in the inner cities are woefully underpaid, especially considering the type of kids they have to deal with on a daily basis. Just outside Philly, in the burbs, a teacher can make a starting salary of $70,000 a year while a veteran teacher in the city barely makes $50,000 a year, that is if they even have a job to come back to this upcoming school year.

It seems many inner city school teachers have turned to "working" as sugar babies in order to make ends meet. The website Seeking Arrangements says that a lot of its female clients come from the teaching profession. Its a website that helps rich dudes to come to "mutually beneficial arrangements" with women. I'm sure we all know what that really means.



Why are teachers so hot for sugar daddies? Website that pairs young women with wealthy men reports a surge in sign-ups from educators

A website that pairs wealthy men with younger single women has claimed that 51,043 teachers have signed up in search of extra income.


According to Seekingarrangement.com, the average teacher on the site is 28 to 33 and asks for $3,000 per month in financial assistance.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, in 2008 76per cent of public school teachers were female, 44per cent were under age 40, and 52per cent had a master’s or higher degree.

The average salary for a public school teacher is $56,059, and scrolling through the site I find dozens of women with advanced degrees.

Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of men who replied to my ad worked in finance. Coming in at a close second were those who claimed to be film directors or producers, and live in both New York and Los Angeles.

Almost all of them claimed to have annual incomes of over $1 million, with many listing net worths of up to $100 million.

Some commenters have expressed outrage that teachers' salaries are so low that some may consider swapping sex to pay for school supplies.

The top five school districts for 'sugar teachers' are Philadelphia, MIami-Dade, Los Angeles County, Clark County Nevada and New York.

Daily Mail

Who really believes that some rich guy is gonna pay a teacher 3-5 grand a month for just a platonic relationship? I think everybody knows what the REAL expectation is here for that kind of money. I'll bet the women who sign up for this site do so hoping the rich scumbag will fall in love with her and take her away from her life of squalor although, I bet that rarely happens.

Is it right for school teachers to be working as high class hoes in their off time? How would you feel if you found out your kid's teacher was doing this on the side? What does this say about the state of education in the inner cities when so many of our teachers have to resort to something like this to survive?

Interesting and disturbing article. This article is a double whammy, not only does it highlight current issues with the education system, but also highlights the economic distress many supposed "middle class" earners are in.

I find it truly unfortunate that education is in such a state where schools are closing weekly and now the teachers are prostituting themselves out to make a livable wage.

I can only imagine how uncomfortable this would make some parents feel. Not having kids, I can't really comment.

In an attempt to look on the bright side of things, or the funny side atleast. This got me thinking about some of my previous teachers, in particular the attractive ones. Come on now, every one had the teacher, male or female, that everyone swooned over.

Grade 9 French teacher for me.

How ever you get laid, it is going to involve the expenditure of money.

Marriage, a date perhaps dinner and a movie, it all costs!

This is just women making alternative arrangements. It's their life!

So why is it anyone's elses business!

The female teachers that taught me would have starved if they tried to rely on their looks and feminine wiles to make ends meet. The vile harpy's from my school days would be the ones who needed to pay to get some, the thought of that herd of horrors indulging in natures slippery dance gives me Sideshow Bob style shivers.

who cares? They're qualified to do the job. What they choose to do in their personal life is no ones business, every one has sex, the only difference is they get paid for it and why should that be a problem? people pay for all kinds of things, hell, if i wasn't an eldritch horror from the depths of R'lyeh, i'd quite happily get paid for sex! beats working for the NHS any day

The issue here is that, technically, trading sex for money is still illegal in most states. Sure, I know they're claiming they just go on "dates" with these guys and serve as "arm candy" at high profile events for them but, for the prices they are demanding, I doubt anyone believes it only goes that far.

Its it really acceptable for teachers to be breaking the law in their off time and isn't it demeaning to them to be doing that for cash?

They may well be breaking the law but it's not like they're harming anyone, for example drug dealing, drinking driving etc. As for being demeaning, i think that really comes down to the individual, some of them might be quite happy doing it, some may hate themselves. I used to have a friend that was an "escort" she started doing while studying at university to get more cash, she ended up dropping out and doing it full time and she said it was the best decision she'd ever made.

If i had kids that were being taught by these women then as long as they did their job properly, then it makes no difference to me what they do in their spare time.

The sugar baby/sugar daddy arrangement truly often does not involve sex. Personally I'm not a fan of it but that's why I never would have entered into such an arrangement. Mostly it's just older men who like to spoil young women though I'm sure some of it is a cover for prostitution this is an actual thing lol.

ETA Echoing another poster, what someone does outside their job is entirely irrelevant as long as it isn't hurting anyone, if you're judging a teacher you should be judging how effectively they are teaching and nothing else.

I dont think this is about laws, but about two things, the morality of more questionable things, and any form of income shortage for anyone, whether you work at mcdonalds, or not. I don't believe in inequality, that is what it takes to get to heaven, the Beyonds are not primitive hellzones like this you have to work for win/wins and the happiness, and by the way that involves the NON enslavement of all. There are no compromises or going down slippery slopes.

All political and socio economic ISMs that allow anything are False Programming and Extremely Evil.

Having someone require a paid companion, and some of these folk may be very elderly or handicapped, that is not sexual is one thing, don't consider caretaking someone to be hoeing or sugar daddy/mommy. That is a legitimate job. But no one who works a full day should be moonlighting anyway.

But any form of prostitution is very very evil, it abuses al women and all children. This is not about the letter of a law, the letter of laws are often crimes themselves and anyone who follows letters of law without thinking is a real criminal to me.

However prostitution is soul wrenching and damaging and demeans the whole planet.

School supplies are expensive and most of that stuff comes out of a teachers wallet.
The money doesn't go on a tree.

For those who don't think this is degrading to the women who participate; take a look at the pic from the website. They have a tab marked "wishlist".

Like they can put women on a list of things they would like to buy as if they were just common commodities to be bought and sold like the stuff you get on Amazon.com.

Kinda creepy if you ask me.

Why does a single person who earns $50k a year need an additional 3k a month?!

Seems like greed to me.

If they want to sell their time/energy/body for it then that's fine, but lets not pretend they are on minimum wage, ok.

My fathers second common law wife, he even now hasn't gotten officially divorced from mom, had a masters degree and made over 50 000, which equates to 36 000 take home as a teacher in williams lake, bc. Ie. 3000 a month.

If you are a single mother, like she was until dad moved in, you may own a house, (she was so proud of that, but she got that from her ex who had some money, not because she somehow saved up half the down payment in order to have low payments on a 3000 a month income with kids).

If you're a normal person who doesnt have a wealthy ex, then you have to pay rent by todays dollar of 1400-1600 for a house, 1000-1400 for a townhouse, or 1000 plus for a multi bedroomed apartment.

OR make payments with say 20,000 down of 14000-2200 a month for a house or townhouse in the interior, more in the city.

Well that is almost 2000 a month by the time you figure in costs and energy. If it was 14000, the lowest rate. Actually you need 50 000 down, and a home that is under 300 000 for that. Taxes and insurance included. And you can't move in without the insurance.

2/3rds income gone and now you can't make ends meet for a family.

GET IT! Because all of us struggling with poverty and families ALL DO.

Poverty line has to do with FAMILY SIZE. A single person would be middle class on 3000 plus a month, though not exactly peachy.

But your rent or payments and utilities are supposed to be 1/3 income in total or you're poor.

Depends on where you live.
50K in New York doesn't last long.
3K a month is the avg rent in NYC.
Not including everything else that's essential.

I wouldn't like to think a part-time prostitute was full-time teaching any impressionable kid of mine TBH.

I know desperate poor folk will do what they don't want to do to in order to survive, but teachers aren't exactly destitute and starving are they? They don't have to do this. Their erm, twilight activities are a choice.

But, if they are so hard up why don't they go get one of those better paid jobs I keep hearing about which are waiting for educated people to step into? Minimum-wage earners here on ATS are often told to go and get educated if they want to be paid more money, and teachers are already educated so what are they waiting for?

I don't want my world poisoned by inequality, lack of abundance for all, or this form of abuse and usary and demoralizing entrenched in the fabric of life, society, as role models for kids, or permeating the ETHER around me. PERIOD.


But my approach to this is not to blame the victims, or the people engaging, rather educate them, and provide EQUALITY AND ABUNDANCE FOR ALL and alot of self esteem and counseling all the time, it should be free the life coaching in a world of abundance.

I don't believe in negative forms of law and consequence unless someone is an elite PTB monster and mass murderer.
