小编摘要:到底什么是拉皮条派对呢?

 

美国声名鹊起的“糖果老爹派对”正准备向英国进军。派对主要为缺钱的年轻女性和多金老男牵线搭桥。
Events that offer to set up wealthy older men with young cash-strapped women, dubbed ‘Sugar Daddy Parties’, are about to hit Britain after becoming popular in the U.S.
派对曾在纽约时髦的鸡尾酒吧举办,“糖果老爹”在那里和他们喜欢的美女讲价。目前,活动组织者把目光投向了伦敦市场。
The parties have been hosted at swanky New York cocktail bars, where the ‘daddies’ discuss fees for future dates with the women who take their fancy – and its organisers are now seeking London venues.
组织活动者坚称所有的参与者都是自愿参加的成年人,“不会强迫任何人做他们不喜欢的事情”,但有批评人士指出这种派对简直就是拉皮条。
The 'matchmakers' justify the events by insisting that all participants are consenting adults and 'nobody has to do anything they don't want to' but critics say the parties are bordering on prostitution.
纽约的派对现场更让人感觉低级庸俗,随处可见年轻美女和老男人勾肩搭背。
And the scenes from New York venues that have hosted the get-togethers, showing pretty young women hanging off the arms off much older men only add to the sleaziness factor.
组织者称,在美国平均每次约会费用是500美元,不过每个月的约会费达到一两万美元的也不少见。
On average, fees of $500 per date is said to be common in the U.S., but arrangements worth between $10,000 and $20,000 per month have also been agreed upon in the past, according to its organiser.
派对主办方否认鼓励卖淫,但他们也承认参加派对的女性一般在20岁左右,要么想挣钱交学费,要么想过上奢华的生活。
Despite denying that they’re encouraging prostitution, organisers say the women are usually aged in their late teens or early twenties and are seeking money to pay for university fees or a more glamorous lifestyle.
据《每日电讯报》报道,“排队候场”的英国“糖果宝贝”已达数千人。
And they say there are already thousands of British ‘sugar babies’ waiting to meet ‘daddies’, according to the Daily Telegraph.
“求包养公司”主管布兰登•韦德告诉该报:“我们的派对已经很成熟,目前准备进军伦敦等地市场。”
The chief executive of the company Seeking Arrangement, Brandon Wade, told the newspaper: ‘We have perfected our parties and are now ready to launch in even bigger markets like London.
“预计将在2012年初开始。”
‘We are due to start in early 2012.’
之前在纽约哈德逊阳台酒吧举办的一场派对中,有600人到场寻找自己的“糖果老爹”或者“糖果宝贝”,派对门票价格为男性100美元(62英镑),女性40美元(25英镑)。
At one party hosted at the Hudson Terrace bar in New York, 600 hopefuls turned up to meet their future ‘sugar daddy’ or ‘sugar baby’ and while the men were charged $100 (£62) to attend, the women paid $40 (£25) at the door.
男性参与者的平均年龄是38岁,但60多岁的也并不少见,女性的平均年龄要小十几岁。
The average older man was aged 38, while the average woman was over a decade younger, however some men aged well into their 60s were also in attendance.
主办人阿兰•施耐德接受报纸采访时称,派对“够档次、有品位、有格调”,韦德还夸耀其网站会员中还有两位富翁位列福布斯美国亿万富豪榜前10名。
Host Alan Schneider told the newspaper his events are ‘elegant, classy and refined’, and Wade boasts two men from Forbes magazines top 10 wealthiest American billionaires among the members of his website.
