Apple approved an iPhone app from SugarSugar, which will connect nearby singles interested in the “Sugar Lifestyle.”
What the heck is a “sugar” lifestyle. I’m glad you asked. According to the site – www.sugarsugar.com, it’s “for generous men looking to spoil, and dynamic women looking for financial support with bills, or who just need some excitement in life!” Ah., OK, prostitution in other words. Or, I suppose you could look it as a try-out system for would-be mistresses.
There’s nothing new about the world’s oldest profession being online. Sure, over-zealous prosecutors managed to chase Craigslist out of the adult services business. So what? I see that another online classified ad site, Backpage, is now offering adult services ads. Anyone want to bet me that if Backpage is hammered in the same way Craigslist was there will be yet another online general purpose ad site with adult services ads up and running before the day is out?
And, of course, there’s AshleyMadison, the infamous or well-known depending on how you look at it, site for married people to find others to have affairs with. Yes, there is an app for AshleyMadison.
But, to the best of my knowledge there’s never been an app. for escorts before. The company claims that “The new, location-based app is designed to provide Sugar Daddies and Sugar Babies with a quick, effective and discreet way to locate one another as they go about their every-day lives.”
Boy, doesn’t that put everyone’s worries about Apple’s Locationgate mess into a whole new light! Congress, given the record of politicians and women of negotiable virtue should pay particular attention.
The company claims that “The SugarSugar Dating App will be available for download on June 1st through SugarSugar.com and iTunes, and will be compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices. The app will use GPS technology to instantly identify those seeking ‘mutually beneficial’ arrangements within the user’s vicinity. After ‘checking in, the application will map out the profiles of nearby members. Users will be able to trade stats, show photos or send messages to arrange an effortless rendezvous.”
I should have seen this coming. Location-based software plus smartphone plus lust equals this application. And, all the efforts of police, outraged prosecutors seeking election to a higher office, and even Apple won’t be able to stop it.
In spite of its generally uptight and arbitrary app-approval process, Apple has given the go-ahead to a new iPhone app designed to connect sugar daddies escort with the women who love their money them. SugarSugar, which features the insanely straightforward tagline “Where Romance Meets Finance” and bills itself as “the world’s most effective and discreet place for finding Sugar Daddy and Sugar Baby relationships,” will soon launch the “Sugar Lifestyle” app, essentially allowing sex to be purchased from the comfort of an iPhone.
In case it’s still not clear what the point of the app is, the sugar daddies’ names feature a handy dollar-sign graphic next to them. They really have thought of everything! Now excuse me while I find a nice, lonely older man to supplement my blogging income.
According to SugarSugar, that means “generous men looking to spoil, and dynamic women looking for financial support with bills, or who just need some excitement in life!”
Yikes. Sounds more like an “escort service” to us.
We’re not sure how or why Apple approved the app, but it launched June 1.
