seeking arrangements

articles like this one, in this weekend's new york times' sunday magazine, make me incredibly grateful for the outlook i have on love and romantic relationships, which i previously thought was of the norm. the article is about the website seeking arrangement, which matches sugar babies (young, good-looking women in need of financial support) with sugar daddies (older, more-than-often unhappily married men with money to spare). in exchange for maintaining contact with these men, establishing relationships with them, and occasionally partaking in sexual relations, the sugar babies receive a stipend from their sugar daddies. hmmm... the article provides a legitimate clause by which these arrangements evade legislature against prostitution. still, i can't help but find myself perplexed and infuriated by articles like this. i guess i can just be glad to have such faith and strength in my own values.
