Thousands of Philadelphians Actually Buying Dates for Valentine’s Day

From the man who brought you SeekingArrangement.com, Temple University’s #1 provider of Sugar Daddies and Sugar Babies, comes WhatsYourPrice.com, the PG-13 alternative. Seriously, between Temple’s apparent sugar-daddy boom, and the racy pay-for-adultery billboard gracing I-95, Philadelphia’s practically re-invented itself as the City of Brothelly Love. Now, I learn that no fewer than 2,400 Philadelphians have been paying for the right to take people out on dates in the last month, for the Valentine’s Day run-up. (For comparisons’ sake, NYC had 27, 733 dates bought.) As the site frames it, it’s like a date auction, except not for charity! Still need a date Thursday? You can either browse for “Generous Members” or “Attractive Members.” (Meaning, you can browse for “men” or for “women.”) [WhatsYourPrice.com]
