Wade concludes: Love is a concept invented by poor people.
What if a car crash disfigures the ‘beautiful’ wife?
Is this grounds for divorce as she is no longer able to serve as an asset of status from point of view of her beauty-seeking husband?
Wade uses his op-ed to rail against the idea of love, and to make his case for “sugar” relationships where beautiful women attach themselves to wealthy men…like himself. Believe it or not, my first kiss didn’t happen until I was 21 years old.
While attractive girls were being wooed away by handsome men my age, there I stood, the lonely geek.
I created my first dating website to meet women who I knew would be interested in a relationship with someone like me.
And yes, to offer the financial incentive to give myself, and others like me, a fighting chance.
You may have heard about Luxy — it’s an elite dating app for pretty people with pretty pennies, marketed as “exclusively for the top one percent." It’s also an indubitable source of controversy.
Male members must have a minimum income of 0k annually, verified via tax records or they are immediately removed, and women must be considered attractive (judged by existing members) to be accepted into this bourgeois club.
Wade is creating distinctions that do not exist — he uses his wealth to buy sexual relationships with women who might otherwise ignore him.
Not only is this akin to prostitution, but speaks to a devastating lack of self-esteem on his art.
Feminists argue that sugaring reverts women to a submissive, “codependent” lifestyle.
