Young Canadian women now turning to “sugar daddies” to help pay tuition

I just read an article on the CBC website about how some young Canadian women are using a website called Seeking Arrangement which matches older men with younger women, and the women are paid for their time, to help with their tuition and other bills. This is just more evidence of how the recession has negatively impacted young people; rising student debt loads and lack of employment prospects are putting some young women in a horrible position where they see such arrangements as a viable solution to structural economic constraints. And in some ways, why shouldn’t they take advantage of this opportunity to graduate without debt? 

Yet, this appears to be a very one-sided progression, and reflects how gender inequality is exacerbated during an economic crisis. I didn’t read anything about “sugar mommies” only “sugar daddies”. Moreover, this is an example of how wealthy men benefit from/exploit women’s economic insecurity and vulnerability to satisfy their own desires. The article takes pains to say that these relationships are “mutually beneficial” but would women even have to consider such arrangements if post-secondary education wasn’t becoming increasingly less affordable in Canada, and the job market for new grads wasn’t so dire?
