Photos: Top ten Sugar Daddy schools (including CU) according to Seeking Arrangement

Big photos below.
Last May, we posted about a University of Colorado study that found May-December couples are seldom rich or hot. Afterward, Brandon Wade, CEO of Seeking Arrangement, billed as "the world's largest Sugar Daddy website," offered a rebuttal. His sugar daddies are rich and hot, he insisted.

Now, Seeking Arrangement has come up with a list of colleges with the most students seeking sugar daddies, and can you guess which local school made the top ten? Yep, CU. Get details and the roster below.

Jennifer Gwynn, director of public relations for Seeking Arrangement, notes that the company "has been around since 2007. Our founder and CEO" -- Wade -- "was a self-proclaimed nerd who had a lot of money, but he didn't have the social skills to go along with it. So he created this website off his own needs."

The site's modus operandi is pairing young people of little financial means with folks willing to support them in exchange for...companionship. And as the economy tanked, the appeal of having a sugar daddy -- or perhaps a sugar mommy -- pay all the bills moved in the opposite direction.

"When things got tough for college students, we had a lot of students sign up," Gwynn notes. "Now, about 42 percent of our total population is college students, with most of them between the ages of nineteen and 21. I would imagine that after their sophomore year, they're looking for more than their schools can offer them in terms of financial aid.

"There's an overwhelming problem with the cost of education," she goes on, "so this is an alternative solution. We definitely have our critics, but really, we're just providing another resource -- connecting students with people who may be able to help them out in ways the schools or the government may not be able to anymore."

While both men and women are welcome to sign up at Seeking Arrangement, there's definitely a disparity in numbers. As Gwynn acknowledges, "there are about eight girls for every guy on the site -- so it's harder for girls to find what they're looking for right away, because there's such high demand.

"There are 2.7 million members worldwide," she adds, "so you should come in knowing it's not an instant gratification thing. It's just like any dating website: You need to find the right arrangement. And that could take a little longer if you're female."

As for guys, Gwynn stresses that "there definitely are sugar mommies, but they're somewhat elusive. They're very easily pleased, more monogamous, and they've got their pick. There are probably about twenty guys for each sugar mommy to pick from."

The site's list of colleges is culled from 2013 and looks at the number of .edu e-mail addresses from each institution. Most of the entries can be found in heavily populated states such as California, Texas, New York and Florida, making CU something of an outlier, especially compared to neighboring states. "There are no schools from Utah, and none from Idaho or any of the other mountain west states in the top 100," Gwynn says. "So it's unusual to see that Colorado made it so high on the list."

Here's the top ten, with the school names, the number of students from each, and illustrations culled from the Seeking Arrangement Facebook page.

Number 10:

Only prostitution is the oldest occupation in human history.

Really don't understand why it's illegal to have sex for money. It's your body.

Well it's prostitution. Which I feel should be legal, anyway.

Wrong question. If our nation has enough money for the decade plus of war we've been in, why can't we find the money to make college affordable enough that people don't have to sell themselves to get a degree?

And to the dudes who use money to lure these insecure women in, get a fucking grip. Put yourself out there. Go be a gentlemen like your grandfather taught you.

It's sad people aren't comfortable enough in their own skin to find the ways and means to do so like humans have for thousands of years. Insecure. Disrespectful. Lacking any passion or self respect. It's sad this is what America has come down to. Go out and make something for yourself. Quit holding your hand out and expecting someone to take care of you.

Realistically speaking, there are a lot of things that are willingly exchanged for companionship (regardless of whether there is sexual contact between consenting adults, or no sexual contact). And as someone who found companionship of an individual off the Seeking Arraignments site that did not include any type of sexual contact what so ever, I would not agree that everyone on those particular type of dating websites is looking for sex let alone "prostitution". Many of the more well off individuals that subscribe to those sites prefer it because they do not have to hide the fact that they are financially well endowed....which can destroy a relationship with the wrong person.

It's prostitution to get through school, period. It's dressed up better but it's still prostitution. If she can live with that, it's on her.

Asking for a "sugar daddy" is the same as saying that you are a prostitute.

It would be a consideration if the arrangement was not about sex solely - But about forming a connection - and possibly going further into a relationship - It is said that a man should be ten years older due to the fact woman are more mature at a younger age - well used to be anyway - I'm a successful bachelor and enjoying - my time - not seeking a girlfriend - but ya never know - would be cool to meet for coffee out of curiosity -

Hi, I've been a SD on seeking arrangement and the problem why students have to revert to this is basically social reasons.   Parents divorcing and abandoning their children for their own selfish reasons.   They go and find their own bf and gfs and forget about their children.  They struggle to study and yet no help.  Tuition hikes in universities doesn't help much either.  Not everyone is good enough to be getting great scholarships.   Fostered people.   So many social, economical and community problems.  And in midst of this these students trying to make it and not get into debt with head on heels is just crazy.   Prostitution is someone who's job is giving sex for money.   The people on these sites , it's not their job.   They're trying to achieve a goal and not get sucked into this capitalistic society with credit card and school debts .  Plus getting a good SD will also give great insights on entrepreneurship and get great mentoring and help them set goals and achieve things.

Sounds like prostitution. Old rich guys boning college age girls for money....that's prostitution right? Maybe it's okay if you're rich.

Prostitution is a good alternative to regular financial aid? What?

Wrong. Tramps and hos give it away for free (or almost free).

Then you'd be bitching about why there aren't enough jobs for "more qualified" applicants. No need to get mad simply because they happen to excel at marketing their...um...."assets."

I agree Gina, Westword is tasteless. They would rather post things just to get reactions from people. I could careless what women do with their own time, but apparently the people at Westword find this news worthy for some reason. Maybe for a tabloid newspaper it would be considered news. What ever happened to people simply minding their own business? To me in my opinion, Westword does not represent 1 iota of a professional, credible alternate news source and magazine. Almost reminds me of highschool yearbook class with the quality of stories written, and quotes taken by readers, and etc. Westword is best used to line pet cages with, and catch oil from cars leaking it.

Might be the stupidest comment yet. So if your sons pay for companionship that is ok, but if a woman gets paid for said companionship that is bad?
