Several multi-millionaires in California are known for throwing “pamper parties” to attract young women, aspiring models, and impoverished minors to their homes in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and other locations. The female guests are indulged in beauty and massage treatments. However, the rich hosts often seek sexual favors in return. Multiple women accused Peter Nygard, a multi-millionaire with a home in Los Angeles, of raping them at pamper parties.

Underage teenagers are often the targets of predators through dating websites, parties, and other social media. For example, rich men have targeted young women through the website www.seeking.com where the website openly promotes attractive women exchanging sexual favors in exchange for a lifestyle supported by rich men. Underage teenagers joining the website is a problem acknowledged by bloggers discussing the website.
Over the last few years, sexual misconduct by powerful men has become public since charges were made against Weinstein. More than 100 high-profile men across different industries have been accused of misconduct ranging from sexual harassment to rape. These men are involved in sports, media, politics and business.
A victim may bring a civil lawsuit against her perpetrator. Damages may vary depending on the case. Damages may include:
- Mental anguish damages
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Counseling expenses
- Lost wages
Unlike a criminal case, the standard of proof is a preponderance of the evidence. This means more likely than not. The standard of proof is not as high as a criminal case which requires the prosecutor to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
