Inauguration Traffic Means More Business for Strippers, ‘Sugar Babies’
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)- When you think of businesses that will see an increase in traffic due to the hundreds of thousands of visitors in the District for Monday’s Inauguration, restaurants and hotels might come to mind.
But more intimate hospitality services are also likely to see a spike, BuzzFeed.com reports.
An employee at Hire Party Strippers, “DC, Maryland, and Virginia’s premier resource for all of your adult entertainment needs and promotion,” according to the company website, told BuzzFeed that business could double on Inauguration weekend. Standard rates can be boosted by about 25 percent, as well, because many visitors want adult entertainment to be a part of their weekend experience.
The report said SeekingArrangement.com, which describes itself as a service to help arrange “sugar daddy and sugar baby online dating,” is preparing its servers for heavy traffic after it experienced a nearly 35 percent increase in site visits from the D.C. area leading up to the 2009 Inauguration.
A company spokesperson told BuzzFeed.com that “sugar daddies,” some of whom are political figures, may be seeking low-profile dates for dinner or drinks while they’re in town for the festivities.
