Lisa Ling Explores Lives of 'Sugar Daddies', 'Sugar Babies'

It's a phenomenon that exists both contractually and casually– men who provide financial support for women in exchange for their companionship.

In the first installment of Lisa Ling's new series, "This is Life" the award winning journalist explores this chosen lifestyle from both sides.

"New Day Weekend"'s Christi Paul asked Ling about what it was like to explore such a controversial subject and about what else we can expect from this intriguing series.

    Haha... $3500 per month for a platonic relationship with an above average looking chubby "sugar baby"? Are you kidding me? These guys must be morons. You want a younger gf; go look in Asia where age gap relationships are normal. It won't be platonic and it won't cost you $4000 per month. In fact, if you choose carefully, it won't cost you anything.
