PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Anahi Quintana is your typical ASU student.
"I'm on my way (with) a pre-med (track) to my medical career," she said. "I figured ASU would be the perfect (school). It's in-state and it's close to my house."
Like many students, she's also worried about cost.
According to the College Board, the nonprofit group that oversees the SAT, in-state tuition and fees in Arizona increased 70 percent when adjusted for inflation over the past five years. The national average was an increase of 27 percent.
"Everything has just gone up," said Quintana.
Though the 20-year-old works two part-time jobs to help pay for tuition, books and parking, she said she still needed more money for school. After hearing about a website that matched wealthy men with younger women, she decided to try sign up for it herself
"I had one (arrangement) for a while. It was basically just going out to dinner. Basically being arm candy," said Quintana.
She met the 43-year-old on seekingarrangement.com. The website says Arizona State University had the second most women sign up in 2013 out of all the markets they offer the service.
"How much do you think you made?" asked CBS 5's Greg Argos.
"How much I made? How much was gifted to me? A couple thousand (dollars)," responded Quintana, making sure to point out the term she uses is 'gift'.
Quintana said many of the men on the site are looking for sexual relationships, but she's very firm when she first looks for someone offering an agreement.
"I don't want anything sexual. It's going to take a little more patience, because let's face it, most of the guys on there are looking for something more sexual at that point," she explained.
Attorney Jonathan Frutkin said this type of service is nothing new, but it falls in a gray area when it comes to legality.
"This is kind of like the classic version of an escort. It's OK if you go to dinner with someone. The problem is what happens after that. The line is obviously at prostitution," he explained.
Quintana claims the key to preventing a situation that may stray into illegality is to make sure she's up front with the men she meets on the site.
"The way I see it, it's just another friend," she said.
She plans to continue using the site, so long as her boundaries for the arrangements are followed.
"I'm not selling my body. I'm not doing anything sexual with any of these men," she said.
