Hey Sugar Daddies, San Francisco Is Ranked the 6th Worst City for College Grads

Posted By on Fri, Jun 21, 2013 at 2:22 PM


Just when you thought your college degree was a waste, this new study reveals that sugar daddies are more inclined to spend money on sugar babies with a collegiate education than those who have nothing more than a high school diploma.

In this non-scientific yet very depressing study, 83 percent of fresh-faced grads feel forced to choose an alternative path other than their chosen career after 49 days of unsuccessful job hunting.

And San Francisco (once the nation's Sugar Daddy capital) is not excluded. According to, a site dedicated to matching sugar daddies with sugar babies, the City by the Bay is the sixth worst place for hopeful college grads.

Not surprising since, according to Forbes, a staggering 60 percent of graduates can't find work in their chosen field, not to mention they're saddled with a potential $250,000 worth of debt (that's if they went to a private school).

So what happens to these grads whose dreams of being a doctor or a teacher, or a journalist are not immediately fulfilled? They become mooches.

And apparently, they waste no time.

According to the study, the average college graduate can latch onto a sugar daddy three weeks sooner than a sugar baby without a degree. Turns out, Sugar Daddies do want to have a conversation with you, and will pay up to $2,700 a month for an allowance for educated "babies."

And that'll just about cover your one-bedroom rent in San Francisco. Now get back to that school work.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
