A study from 475 University of Michigan undergraduates ages 17 to 26 found that 27% of the men and 14% of the women who weren't in a committed relationship had offered someone favors or gifts -- help prepping for a test, laundry washing, tickets to a college football game -- in exchange for sex. On the flip side, 5 percent of the men surveyed and 9 percent of the women said they'd attempted to trade sex for such freebies.
Really, for football game tickets? I could understand a house, erasing student loan debt, Uncanny X-Men 94 in mint condition, but for college football tickets!
I guess it all about priorities. I had to think if I have done this to some degree, and I think I did for affection when I was in my teens. But I want to say I would put out for much more these days.
Now I'm curious, has anyone out there bartered sex for favors? Let me know
