DAYTONA BEACH, FL (RNN) - There’ll be no more days at the beach for a 73-year-old Florida man who was banned from every beach in Volusia County for wearing a T-shirt and handing out cards that said “sugardaddy seeking his sugarbaby.”
Richard Basarbara was turned in by the mom of a 16-year-old girl who was standing with a couple of 18-year-old friends, one of whom he handed a card to. The girl said Basbara asked all the girls their ages, then held up a bra pad and said he was looking for someone to fill it, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
The card included an email address and text that said “Ask me about your monthly allowance.” He told the 16-year-old he was looking for his Cinderella, that she was a perfect fit for the bra pad, and to come back when she was 18.
Basbara said it was all a joke, he was paying her a compliment, but he understood why the mother was so angry.
Interviewed at his seaside condominium, he said he found the bra pad one day, and often used it to spark conversations with women on the beach by walking up and asking if they'd lost it. He said most women found it funny, especially older women, but not necessarily the younger ones.
He said he often walked on the beach wearing the shirt with a similar message, and often women would stop him and ask for a picture that they would post on Facebook.
He was not arrested, but he was banned for passing out business cards on the beach, which is against a county ordinance prohibiting solicitation on the beach.
