Mormons love pseudo prostitution?
City Weekly SLC has a great story on the sugar daddy phenomenon and how popular it is in Utah. While Utah isn’t #1 in most categories, it ranks in the top 20 on several. Interestingly, lots of the sugar babies are Mormon – 71% of the users in Utah are Mormon.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not condemning these types of relationships. Ethically, they are a bit murky for me and a discussion of the ethics would be fun. But I can’t see any reasonable scenarios in which this falls within the moral codes outlined in Mormonism.
So, what gives? Am I just so naive I actually still believe most Mormons live their religion?
Maybe these women just want to hold the priesthood, and the men, well, the men need someone to iron their ties. 😉
Think they can enter the priesthood without getting their hand moistened? Or any other body part? I donâ€™t see a problem with the sugar daddy/baby set-up. Quid pro quo! There isnâ€™t a religion that isnâ€™t shrouded in hypocrisy. So why would anyone expect LDS to be any better. They donâ€™t strap bombs to their bodies and they donâ€™t crash trucks filled with oxy acetylene and semtex into our buildings. So if a wealthy fellow wants to help a young lady in distress then go for it.
