SPUTNIK NEWS - Mar 18 - In a cross-party effort, Danish lawmakers are calling for separate clauses that would punish grooming, sugar dating and other sex-related offenses targeting minors. 50% of the 1,732 Danish young people aged 18 to 30 surveyed said that sugar dating is perfectly okay, Danish Radio reported. While previous reports estimated that 1 to 2% of young people engage in sugar dating, VIVE's survey indicated that 5% of 18-30-year-olds actually tried giving sex, kissing, or sending intimate photos in exchange for everything from a drink to money. According to the dating site SugarDaters.dk, which has ~10K active users every month, it has nothing to do with prostitution. It stressed that it is a dating site like any other and doesn't encourage sex for money in any way.
