Sugar Baby Students

Dr. Phil explores the new trend of sugar baby college students exchanging companionships -- and maybe sex -- for money and extravagant gifts. Is this the Internet version of the world’s oldest profession?

Brandon argues with Sunny that his site is not prostitution because people aren't exchanging money for sex. "But at the same time, is a tool. It can be used positively by a lot of women to achieve your goals, meeting wealthy, generous men who will spoil them. There's nothing wrong with that. It can also be misused by some people to do exactly what Sunny says," he says.

Dr. Phil challenges Brandon with actual posts on his website.

"The law hasn't caught up with this yet, but it will," Sunny says. "It will. And that really is the bottom line. Legally, I think it is very close to the line of prostitution."

"No, I'm dating wealthy men who like to take me out," Kristen argues.

"If I was a prosecutor, I would prosecute this case in a minute," Sunny tells Dr. Phil.

"We live in a digital age," Dr. Phil tells the women, "and once you're on the Internet, it's there forever. There is no delete button. You can find this forever. And every time you go to get a job, or get some kind of credit reference, or security check, or sit for a bar exam, then they can go Google you and pull up every thing you have ever put on the Internet " not what's been put out there, but what you have put out there yourself … Do you get that you can never un-ring this bell, that this can come back to haunt you and bite you?"

Kristen says, "I'm not concerned because who knows? Maybe I'm going to meet an amazing millionaire, and then I'm going to marry him, and why do I care about trying to get a job or trying to get credit, because I have my life set out for me."

Dr. Phil questions if she thinks her fantasy guy will bring her home to meet his mother. "He's going to take you home to Mom and say, ‘You know what? I've been paying her $5,000 a month for six months, and I think she's a good buy, Mom'?"
