NewsChannel 9's Anoushah Rasta takes a close look at young adults, who date "Sugar Daddies," in exchange for money and gifts. She spoke with one El Pasoan who says it's a popular way for girls in the Borderland to make ends meet.

Is a better future worth trading your affection for money?

Hard-hitting news. Thanks, Channel 9 for alerting us to the trend of wealthy older men getting together with younger, attractive women. It's only been around since we came down out of the trees. And you did basically the same story at the end of February.

I have a couple of friends who do it, and some of them have had really bad experiences, but all and all it works out for them. I think there is a website called Sugar Scaries or something like that where girls can post usernames of men who are not...genuine, shall we say.
