YouTube Still Posting Sugar Baby Videos after Google Exec’s Death

July 27, 2014

As has been widely reported, Alix Tichelman apparently met Google executive Forrest Hayes through a sugar daddy site called SeekingArrangement.com.  Ms. Tichelman is accused of manslaughter and other charges relating to Mr. Hayes death.  According to SF Gate:

During interviews with police, Tichleman boasted of having more than 200 clients, all of whom she said she met through a website, SeekingArrangement.com, according to police.

Some news reports have also connected Tichelman to other Silicon Valley executives but nobody is naming names yet as far as we can tell.

The Sydney Morning Herald notes:

Tens of thousands of American tech geeks are getting involved in “sugar daddy dating”, paying exorbitant amounts of money to women who offer services from girlfriend, to attractive sidekick for a night out, to sexual partner.

And it’s because the guys’ social awkwardness hampers their ability to find companionship….”Some people spend money on cars or a vacation,” [Bruce] Boston told San Francisco Magazine. “I prefer to spend it on people I have a crush on.”  [Boston is] a senior theorist at Nest, a tech company based in California that was bought by Google for $US3.2 billion this year.]

This story is relevant because it shows yet again how YouTube’s “catch me if you can” policies that permit wide dissemination of videos promoting illegal drugs including steroids and Human Grown Hormone as well as what is essentially human trafficking.

You would think that after one of Google’s own executives is killed in a scenario that involved the sugar daddy website seekingarrangement.com that YouTube would remove videos promoting the site or at least block them from being served to kids in the YouTube “safety mode.”

Since YouTube always says they respond to flags on videos from “the community,” I guess Ms. Tichelman’s arraignment on manslaughter charges for killing a Google executive isn’t quite enough of a flag or it’s a flag from the wrong “community”.

Here’s the YouTube search results for the keywords “seeking arrangement sugar baby”:

YouTube Seeking A 1

And then a search for just “seekingarrangement.com” in Safe Mode brought back these search results, including what is essentially an infomercial for the site and a Google Chrome ad served in response to the keyword:

YouTube Seeking A 2

Turns out that SeekingArrangement.com has its own channel that shows up in Safety Mode and looks to be a YouTube partner!

YouTube Seeking A 3

In college debt?  seekingarrangement.com has an answer:

Screwed by Obamacare?

YouTube Seeking A 4

When your kids or young siblings are on YouTube, a search for SeekingArrangement.com would get them pointed directly at the site, but also would have this “how to” video for creating a sugar baby profile:

As CNN reported in Yacht Killing Case Shines Light on Sugar Daddy Sites:

Prosecutors say [Tichelman and Hayes] met through a site called Seeking Arrangement, which bills itself as “the leading Sugar Daddy dating site where over 3 million members fuel mutually beneficial relationships on their terms.”

And what are those terms?

“The women who are on the site, or as we call them ‘sugar babies,’ are looking for men who can provide financial assistance for them,” said Angela Jacob Bermudo with Seeking Arrangement.

“Aside from that, they’re also looking for men who can help them in terms of mentorship, whether it’s to find their own independence in the professional world or … with providing life guidance.”

Whether or not you believe this explanation, doesn’t it seem cold blooded for YouTube to have one of their colleagues killed after a connection to this site and yet still post the videos promoting in great detail how young women can use the site?  Young women including kids behind YouTube’s absurdly porous “Safety Mode”?

And sell advertising against the keyword promoting Google products?
