Fellow Hubber Pop Culture World recently posted a hub titled “How to Get a Sugar Daddy - Getting Tuition Paid and Being Spoiled”. The thing I found most fascinating was the poll question which has 50 respondents thus far. “Do you want to be a sugar baby? 70% answered yes, 26% stated they already were, and only 4% said “No way. I’m an independent woman”. Can it really be possible in (this era) we live in that 96% of young ladies would rather have a "sugar daddy" than earn their own money via a career to spoil themselves?

You make an excellent point! The shelf life of a "sugar baby" is usually less time than needed to get a college degree. I suppose some become strippers that "work" their way through college when their Sugar Daddy quits paying for everything. lol!
Excellent point. I would rather be an independent woman but who wants to live in stank rank poverty? I was so poor back in college I had to wash my clothes in a bathtub and look for spare change on the floor for food. Wouldn't wish that on anyone.
"Although it is slightly akin to prostitution" lol!
I don't think "sugar babies" are the same as "trophy wives". They don't want to marry their "benefactor". They carve out time for them but rather live it up with girlfriends and guys their age.
Great points ieshab 1
Financially stable is an expected quality, nothing to be ashamed of when looking for a mate. Doesn't sound like you are a sugar baby at all. His money is just that, his. As is yours :)
Most people would say the difference between a regular boyfriend and a "Sugar Daddy" is the woman is actually attracted to or in love with her boyfriend. A "Sugar Daddy" is not someone the girl has chemistry with nor is she emotionally invested.$$$
Thank you dashing for that perspective and that really does make sense. I was coming from the aspect that a) some people think sex before marriage is a sin, or unmoral, so if you are going to sin you might as well shake those boobs and get a free car
haha- wow efficient admin - i guess you have a point !?!?! but that is temporary - self worth is forever
ReneeDC I agree the sugar baby stuff is temporary and beauty is temporary but the stuff on the inside is forever. So while those taa taas are firm and perky, go ahead and get some free college tuition. Haha I'm having so much fun with this one!
haha - I see - as long as you are enjoying yourself
I'd say the difference is that in a healthy relationship one person doesn't provide for the other, but there is some measure of equality. A sugar daddy holds the purse strings and doles out the money because the sugar baby earns it with favors.
JMHolmes, I hear what your're saying. I don't think "sugar babies" have any intention of marrying their "benefactors". Their goal is to keep the freedom that comes with being single while enjoying his financial resources. Men value looks over money.
