You probably remember the Facebook page (Campus Divas for Rich Men) hooking campus students to old, rich partners which must have been shut down after everyone went on social media and radio stations lamenting.
Because of religious beliefs, we will not expound so much on this but as reporters we just want to announce a new site that has gone live in Kenya to allow what it calls ‘sugar dating’ between older men or women and younger partners or what it calls sugar babies and sugar daddies anytime, anywhere for money an other benefits.
The Campus Divas allows anyone to sign up, create their profile, upload unlimited pictures, search in their location or city or world wide, send friend requests, chat in its forums and message their sugar partners. The sugar daddy dating website is not a normal dating site like DatemeKenya where people date others of their age and for love but it’s mostly a mutual connection not nec ending up in marriage.
After signing up the founders told us that a user will complete the proprietary personality survey and questionnaire, search for and invite others to communicate with them, find functions and events in their communities and obtain important information in the sugar Dating Solutions blog. It is absolutely free for sugar babies but sugar daddies will have a free 5 day trial after which they will be expected to pay 2200 kshs per month to acess their accounts.
According to Leah Wegesa its founder in a statement, “We provide Relationships on Your Terms Based on its understanding that no relationship should be one sided,we want relationships to be balanced. Where Sugar Babies can experience a life of luxury by being pampered with fine dinners, exotic trips and allowances. In turn, Sugar Daddies find beautiful members to spend time with and be in a drama-free, rewardin g relationship. . We give our members a place for this to happen. Online dating site that is stress-free and helps men & women find lasting friendships, casual flings, and even a loving relationship with a life partner.”
Wegesa adds that Sugar Dating is about excitement, pleasure and experiencing the best that life has to offer. Women wish for stability, support, mentoring and to experience the finer things, with an interesting and affluent gentleman. Men crave attention, stimulating conversation, and the comp any of a beautiful and adventurous woman . Together these desires construct a mutually beneficial union that has endless possibilities.
Adult content is set to grow in Kenya and globally due to the busy professional lives, the weakening religiuos institutions and the growing disinterest in marriage and family life and also the growing internet penetration and smartphone use. A report from Juniper Research say that by 2017, a quarter of a billion people will use their mobile or tablet device to access adult content, such as videos, images and live cams, up by more than 30% the current usage. The report – Mobile Adult Content: Monetisation, Technologies & Legislation 2013 – 2018 – smartphones and tablets have become key distribution channels for adult service providers, with those at the forefront of the industry ensuring that content is differentiated for and tailored to the increasingly mobile audience.
Africa is no exception.
