Anna Wargacka may be a ‘sugar baby’, but she certainly doesn’t fit the usual sterotypes.
The 20-year-old student is blonde and buxom, but she isn’t likely to be seen tottering around on seven inch stilettos with a wealthy octogenarian on her arm.
Instead Anna is a budding filmmaker, has her own money – and only joined the controversial Seeking Arrangements website at the request of her boyfriend .
She signed up to the site, which gives wealthy men the chance to meet single women, to combat loneliness after her chap moved to a different city.
Since then, she hasn’t looked back – despite the odd pervert wanting her to crush him under her stillettos.
She has been courted by a lesbian in New York and a pilot who offered to fly her to Disneyland for the weekend.
She said: “I was financially independent – it was not about the money for me.
“When my boyfriend left London to go to university I felt very lonely.
“I was working all hours and didn’t have time to make friends.
“So he suggested I try Seeking Arrangements.”
Anna had tried other ‘friendship’ websites, but said they were full of “creepy” people.
“I’m not that desperate,” she said.
“So I went ahead and made a profile for Seeking Arrangements.
“One of the first questions they ask you is ‘what kind of money do you want’.
“I didn’t know so I just put ‘negotiable’.
“Some girls say they won’t meet unless they get £200 sent to their account in advance. It’s crazy.
“When I think of sugar babes I think of big-breasted blondes with Hugh Hefner type men.
“But the thing that surprised me most is they are mainly gentlemen – I mean real gentleman – well-educated, polite, well-off, who for some reason have become lonely.”
“They tend to be aged from 25 to 40 and there are lots of famous and powerful, well-connected people on there.
“It’s not just about sex for most of them – in fact some don’t even want to have sex at all.”
Anna claims one reason the site is so popular is “it’s easier to get laid than have conversation with a stranger in London”.
On the site, both men and women can sign up for free, but while girls can contact anyone they want, men can only send messages with a paid-for account.
Anna’s profile says: “I don’t have any daddy issues, I don’t need someone to raise my self-esteem.”
It adds: “I’m looking for someone to have a good time with, and if you know how to treat a lady, then you know what I need.”
After chatting via the website, potential dates meet up “somewhere luxurious” and the man pays.
“I’ve been to some places I wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise,” said Anna “Luxurious places, rooftop restaurants.
“And if I want to see the dates again, or sleep with them, its completely voluntary.
“It’s better than Tinder, because instead of just swiping you get to know the people a bit.”
Anna joined the site in June – and broke up with he boyfriend in August, although she says it was nothing to do with her being a sugar baby.
Shortly after that, she got her first proposal.
“It was from a women in New York who was a lesbian,” Anna says.
“I consider myself bisexual, so I put that on my profile.
“She was a high-powered exec, very busy, just looking for company one weekend a month.
“The offer was she would fly me out and pay for everything.
“I was really keen because I am only 20 and might not get too many opportunities to go to New York.
“But in the end it didn’t work out as we didn’t get along all that well – but that’s the kind of choice you get to make on the site.”
Due to her being “quite picky” Anna has only been on eight to 10 dates since joining the site.
Two of those turned into longer term relationships .
Another offer was from a pilot, who wanted to fly her to Paris for the weekend to go to Disneyland Paris.
But it’s not all theatre shows and glamorous restaurants – some of the members are a bit odd.
“Security never a problem – you meet in public places is someone is creepy you just walk out,” says Anna.
“But there was one guy, and his profile name was ‘Mr Pathetic’.
“I don’t look like the dominatrix type, but for some reason he thought I was.
“He wanted me to dress in huge stilettos and step on his b**ls.
“I don’t even have b***s, but that made me wince.
“It was a no for Mr Pathetic.”
