Sugar Daddy Site Claims the Government Shutdown Has Increased Its Signups by 50%

Seeking Arrangement thinks the government shutdown may have something to do with its membership uptick

Notorious “sugar daddy” site Seeking Arrangement, which sets rich people up with beautiful people in decidedly shallow and capitalist relationships, claims that it’s seen an uptick in new user registration over the last week. The reason for that increase, despite the fact that September and October are typically slow months for the site? The government shutdown (or at least that’s the working theory).

“We usually have a lull in September and October,” Seeking Arrangement’s PR manager Jennifer Gwynn told NPR. “For us to peak at the end of the month in September, and this week in general, it makes no sense for us to have a growth like this. Half of the new members are single moms, so we’re thinking that it’s tied directly to the government shutdown, since programs like WIC (the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children), that help more than 9 million moms, have been stalled. It would make no sense for growth otherwise.”

NPR also notes that What’s Your Price, an auction-type dating site that allows users to bid on first dates with other users, also saw an above-average increase in new registrants over the last week.

While this smacks of all-too-convenient self-promotion on the part of both brands, it’s possible the numbers are related to the shutdown, particularly if low income women left in the cold by the shutdown are looking for new ways to pay the bills, as Seeking Arrangement speculates. Plus, what else are bored park rangers and NASA employees going to do with all their free time?

Sugar daddy is just another word for a wealthy John.

Um, not, I signedup to it this week...  just because I got bored with Fetlife.  It had absolutely nothing to do with the government shutdown.  As far as I'm concerned, the government can stay shutdown.  Forever.  I've seen no change at all in services... to me... or anyone else I know.

The biggest human rights issue is the program of genocide being carried out against White humans on earth. This program is being carried with gas, or bullets, or starvation; it's being carried by force integration and assimilation of non-Whites into EVERY White country and community on earth. Whites have no choice but to accept forced diversity. Jews, Muslims, Arabs, Africans, Asians all are free to have spaces to pursue their own destinies. ONLY White are denied this right. This will lead to the end of White humans on earth. This is a real human rights issue and not just propaganda to assist in the White genocide process. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

The shutdown of the government could have a disastrous effect on the American economy. This is a serious matter. But nothing in more serious, at this time in history, than the on-going program of genocide being carried out against White people.  This genocide is not being carried out with guns, gas, or starvation.  Instead, it's being carried out using forced diversity (of non-Whites) into every White country, community, and institution on the earth. Africans, Arabs, Jews, Asians, etc are all free to have spaces and institutions of their own to follow their own destinies. Only Whites are denied this right. This will lead to the end of White people on earth. So called "anti-racism" is really just a code word for anti-White.

"What else are bored park rangers and NASA employees going to do with all their free time?"

Roy starts by suggesting that this might have something to do with money when she talks about the shutdown freezing up funds for WIC. But then she finishes by talking about "bored" furloughed workers. That's pretty offensive.

The uptick in women signing up is probably due to women who are afraid that they won't be able to pay their bills and feed their children. This is nothing but women being forced into prostitution.
