WTMJ Reporter Goes Out On a Date to Investigate Potential Prostitution

To investigate a controversial website that may be promoting prostitution, WTMJ reporter Rob Koebel recently went out on a date with a young woman he contacted through the site.

SeekingArrangement.com helps young women hook up with sugar daddies, who pay them significant sums of money for their company, and Koebel wanted to find out if the site was “just a clever way to promote prostitution.”

On the date, Koebel asked his sugar baby what she was looking for in meeting men on Seeking Arrangement.

“I am definitely looking for a sugar daddy aspect but not just the physical,” the young woman, whose identity was concealed, told Koebel on their date.

TVSpy reached out to Koebel asking how far he would have gone on the date to prove that the site was promoting prostitution. He has yet to respond.
