Glamorizing Sugaring: The Dangers & Realities Webinar

Tuesday, May 24, 2022 • VIRTUAL • 6:00 PM Eastern Time

Sugar dating is a transactional dating arrangement usually between an older, wealthier person and a younger individual in need of financial support. The media, social media, and films have often portrayed sugar dating as lucrative and empowering. Young people are being seduced into going on dates for compensation by their peers, sugaring websites, and social media. The realities are much darker. Sugar dating can be a direct line to prostitution, trafficking, and exploitation especially for vulnerable identities. Hear from our panelists Angie Henderson, Professor of Sociology at the University of Northern Colorado and Co-Founder for the Avery Center and Niyah Sheffield, Research Assistant at the Avery Center about the realities of sugar dating.
