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?
