Have you heard of sugar babies?
No, I’m not talking about the bite-sized pan-coated chewy milk caramel candies. It is neither the 1979 Broadway musical nor Bob Dylan’s song in 2001. I am referring to the slang term for a young female who gets financial support and cared for by sugar daddy in exchange of companionship. These sugar daddies would pamper their sugar babies with money and other material stuff in exchange for sex. Yes, that’s right. They are called sugar babies.
Men by nature tend to seek younger and more attractive women. Women, in general look for more experienced and stylish men; able to provide comfort, abundance and luxuries in life. As humans, it is our instinct to get fascinated to beauty and innately desire for wealth and power.
Sugardaddie.com defines the following:
Sugar Daddy Definition:
"A successful man who is looking for a woman to spoil and share his great lifestyle with."
Sugar Baby Definition:
"A beautiful female in search of a financially secure, worldly man who can offer new and exciting experiences."
Apparently, there are hundreds of websites like SeekingArrangement.com, SugarDaddyForMe.com, MutualArrangements.com, etc. to connect some wealthy sugar daddies with attractive young women for a mutually beneficial arrangements. Sugar daddies are usually in their middle age, mostly married and may have children even younger or older than the sugar babies. In short, they are the modern version of “Dirty Old Men (DOM)".
These sites are basically online matchmakers, where you have to be officially a member by signing up and then creating your profile and then your matchmaking begins. Many of these sites claim to have achieved success in the relationship through testimonials that speaks about a loving and mutually agreed relationship.

The goal of each site is all the same, which is to hook up people looking for someone specials. The sugar babies are spoiled and paid well by their sugar daddies. Unlike a typical call girl or prostitutes, sugar babies’ typically only deal with “regular” customers or clients. These customers/clients (sugar daddies) are screened by the matchmaker company specifically for their financial ability to pay. Money is usually paid by sugar daddies upfront. Sugar babies can have one or more sugar daddies arranged for them, not exclusive. Some sugar babies can manage to score multiple sugar daddies. What a skill, I must say!

Sugar babies lifestyle~
Getting involved in a sugar baby/sugar daddy relationship doesn’t mean commitment. It is more so of a recreational relationship and it will not work without the money and sex for obvious reasons. And so, a truly meaningful relationship is unlikely to survive. Don’t be hopeful! So, if you think of it, the concept of sugar babies is not far from the modern prostitution and online companies help facilitates and promote the business.
Some sugar babies (and daddies) and the companies themselves may argue and deny the fact that this is simply a glamorized way of prostitution. However, no matter where you look at it, it is as it is—a modern version of prostitution, glamorized and made appealing by these online companies.
Oxford defines Prostitution as: "The practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment." or "The unworthy or corrupt use of one’s talents for personal or financial gain."
Can we justify it as to making an honest living to pay the babies’ tuition fees or say, the sugar babies are working hard and saving for their education and hence, they do it? Honesty? Dignity? Integrity? Self-worth? Personal, ethical values? Where are all the morals gone in the modern world?

Young women approach their lives & circumstances in many ways. Some make their own way, depending upon their OWN resources to succeed. Others elect to have SOMEONE pay their way.............
What does it take to be a sugar baby?
Most of the matching online sites will advise you on the basic things you must remember if you want to be a successful sugar baby. And, you thought this is common sense!
For instance, you must know how to dress properly. Duh, you obviously do not want to look like a hooker. But aren’t you one when to hook up is your ultimate goal? Still, the site recommends that your dress up appropriately -tasteful and classy. You also have to know how to market yourself by crafting an excellent personal ad in order to get noticed by potential sugar daddies. And once on a date, the site also recommends that you keep that “million-dollar” smile. Sounds like money really makes the world go round.
One of the sites, advised that in order to successfully hook up, “never make any reference to money in the beginning. Pretend as though money is the last thing on your mind”. –Really? Who are you kidding? These men although foolish enough to be on that matching sites are definitely aware that these babies only want their monies in return for pleasure. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be wasting time (and money) to be on that site.
How do you qualify as a sugar daddy?

Did you know?
Vancouver sugar daddies are the most generous in Canada? They spend an average of $4,928 a month on their sugar babies, $600 above the national average. – source: seekingarrangement.com
Should this be acceptable in the society?
Personally, in my opinion this is simply a form of modern prostitution and a short cut to making a comfortable living and lifestyle, only it is legal.
If you are smart and decent, you wouldn’t go this route to earn a luxurious life. You must know that there are other ways to pay for your tuition, if that is your lame excuse. That is, if you ever care about your good reputation and that you value and respect yourself more than the Louis Vuitton bag and Tiffany bracelet that’s been presented to you in exchange for one of the most sacred things in a relationship-sex and unless of course, these expensive accessories are your determination of your market value. Before you do it, ask yourself: How exactly are you building your future being a sugar baby?
I also don’t believe that these married daddies know the actual meaning of the word “respect”—for themselves, for the babies and most specially for their own family, for the wife most importantly. Because if they do, they will not get themselves involved in this kind of extra-marital adventures in the first place. There are other ways to help out, if that is their intention. Keep in mind that most of these babies specially those in their late 20’s will likely cheat on you (daddies) and banging other folks and dudes in their 20’s.
So, don’t be a fool daddies, these babies do not want a relationship with you except for your money. That’s all!
Most of the sugar babes are insisting that they do it mainly in order to pay for their soaring cost of college/university education. Is this a valid reason or material girls' sheer laziness? If this is the case, should we blame the government for not providing us an affordable higher education and good employment opportunity?
Are they the solution to pay off college debts?
It’s scary enough that the society keeps on accepting what’s not supposed to be acceptable. Twisted is the word—twisted society! Outright failure! I wonder in which direction our society is going to?
I’m certain we all have different views on this? What’s your take? Should the society condone or condemn the practice?
“Relationships that are successful are mutually beneficial at the end of the day” – claims one of the online matching sites. I’m not sure about that. However, one thing is for sure, this arrangement will certainly piss off a lot of housewives!
