Dating a man who is rich
But I — and a lot of sex-positive feminists like me — believe that A) there's nothing wrong with sex work, B) there are totally ways to live a feminist SB lifestyle, and C) there are ways to live an SB lifestyle that have nothing to do with being a sex worker whatsoever.

However, I received contradictory remarks about how kosher disclosing your interest in financial, sexual, or psychological BDSM is on the site.
Seeking seems like a natural place to go if you're a Fi-Dom (financial Dom/me, controlling the finances of your submissive) or a pay pig (the submissive moneybags who gets off on relinquishing power over their financial assets to a Fi-Dom).
And several site reps admitted that these folks exist on the site.
Sugaring can absolutely be a feminist act when performed by women who own their sexuality and are up-front about their needs and expectations.
And Seeking seemed committed to reinforcing this idea, making clear that there is nothing inherently anti-feminist about becoming a Sugar Baby.
One of the site reps chalked this up, in part, to some gender-biased language in the first email blast sent out about the event, which was later changed to be more inclusive.
