This is just another sign of our times. Greedy investors get their money while people slave themselves either through prostitution or never-ending debt. In a few decades our countries will probably look like the HBO series "Rome" if things continue heading in this direction.

Those girls are selling themselves very cheaply. If you are going to stoop to thinly disguised prostitution at least you should be making the big bucks. That's only a little over 30,000$ a year.

Hopefully that's for a couple nights work a month.

They should just get a job as a cocktail waitress in a swanky bar. It's nights and weekends and those girls can make $30,000- $60,000 if they are hot.

You're not paying for the C, you're paying for the T & A.

Pretty sad this is what some have to resort to for an education. Let's just keep raising those tuitions and see if we can make it worse. And of course you need a degree to be considered for pretty much anything now.

From my perspective, higher education should be a part of free public schooling. Having a populace which is broadly-educated should be a government imperative, not something dependent solely upon availability to those who can afford it.

However, none of these individuals "have to resort to" prostitution for an education. This is something they choose to do. It's easier and more lucrative than working in a fast food restaurant or a discount retailer. I don't pass judgement on any of those involved. They have a right to make this choice, but the linkage to economic necessity is tenuous at best.

It does however fly into the face of the political and judicial prejudice that all sex workers are victims of human trafficking and the sentence enhancements often proposed in an effort to suppress commercial sex.

the problem with free higher education is that it will become more watered down and useless. Free college will just end up with more and more unqualified students on campus who will struggle and take resources away from qualified students. The universities will then make the curriculum even easier because what college wants to have a graduation rate under 25%. Down the road a bachelors degree will be as useless as a high school diploma is today (if it isn't already).

When I was in college women were having sex for pretty much everything.... rent money ,car payments, drugs, tuition etc. It's really not uncommon. But the guys weren't whay we called "rich", they were average dudes with great jobs.

When I was in school most of my woman friends were having sex for the pure fun of it. Those were good times and better memories.

Trading sex for money or security is as old as humanity. so long as it is a non-coercive arrangement. what business is it to the rest of us?
