He went to some of the best colleges and grad schools. Just ask his ex-wife—even she wouldn't say a bad word about him.
So one day when he was at the gym, he saw this old guy with a very pretty young lady, and when Thurston expressed confusion to his trainer, his trainer explained that the geezer was her sugar daddy and that the young fawn was his sugar baby.Well, you could barely keep Thurston on a lat-press machine after that.He dashed home and did some Googling and found Seeking Arrangement.com, a site built for wealthy (to varying degrees) men who are seeking a formal (to varying degrees) arrangement for sex and (to varying degrees) companionship with someone who in turn is looking for cash and prizes without any drama.Drama, according to Thurston, includes taking your time to decide whether you want to have sex, having any motive beyond the one you stipulated up front (which was greed), and a presumption that you will be courted. Sugar dating is the oldest dynamic around: Rich person contracts poorer but younger/hotter person into some combination of obligations that includes but is only rarely limited to straight-up sex.Thurston Von Moneybags (not his real name) was scammed once by a girl in Houston. She didn't show to the meet, and that's the last time Thurston Von Moneybags ever got hustled again.He had arranged to meet her so that he might size her up and determine whether he wanted to give her a monthly stipend in exchange for regular sex and sometimes maybe dinner. Was she blonde and blue-eyed, the way he liked them? Now he meets the girls for lunch before he offers them an ahem arrangement, and he is very clear. A thing you should know is that there are very few people to root for in this story.
Was she thin “but not anorexic, a shapely body, you know? He doesn't give them money until their second date, when they're in the bedroom, which sometimes feels bad, which sometimes chips away at his this-isn't-prostitution line—Thurston was raised Catholic, after all—but what's the alternative? Which is not to say that old Thurston is a bad guy.
Anyway, she asked for money up front, and he sent her $800.
It’s been a wild ride, and it’s getting only wilder. I just wanted to quickly share this post of mine from my personal Facebook page: at theatres nationwide is here.
I am so grateful for each and every one, for the blessing of this kind of tired…
Love *can* be something sacred and it’s a fight worth having. If the next three days are strong enough, that could help us expand into more markets.
If you’re not too busy this weekend, come out and support our little movie that could.
