From New York to Texas, students at some of the country's most elite colleges are diving into "sugar dating."

In this episode of the HuffPost Love+Sex Podcast, hosts Carina Kolodny and Noah Michelson look at the popularization of sugar dating -- which typically involves a younger woman entering into a financially beneficial relationship with an older man -- and explore the who, what, why and how of these complicated and sometime problematic relationships.

Guests include: poet and sugar baby Tessla Coil; writer and blogger Karley Sciortino of SLUTEVER; documentarian Parinda Wanitwat, who is currently working on a film called Daddies Date Babies; Christian Grov, Professor of Public Health at Brooklyn College; and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com Brandon Wade.
