I’m sure many of you have heard of the phrase “Sugar Daddy,” but seldom do most people actually know what one is because it’s not normally something that is celebrated (much like a MILF).
According to Merriam-Webster.com, a “Sugar Daddy” is:
1: a well-to-do usually older man who supports or spends lavishly on a mistress, girlfriend, or boyfriend. 2: a generous benefactor of a cause or undertaking.
Until the best-selling, hit novel, Fifty Shades Of Grey, by EL James came about; most seductive tales were sold at the dollar book stand waiting for bored women and housewives to pick them up to read around the pool or while waiting on their husbands and lovers. After this book hit the stands, it became more like the men waiting on the women to put the book down! But why? What’s so new about a trashy, sex-filled romance story and why did it send millions flocking to read it?
The story itself describes a literature student, Anastasia Steele, who falls for a handsome, older, wealthy man that is quite the catch. There is however, several catches to him: he’s controlling and insists that in order to “play,” that they must be by his rules. In return, Ana is showered in gifts and pleased in more ways than one. To many, it’s just a filthy and raunchy love tale, but to plenty of others in the modern day world, it’s a lifestyle all too common.

What makes men like this desirable and why are they seeking their sugar babies? For the women (babies), meeting a Sugar Daddy is normally about money- but not always the case. Many women are attracted to successful men- period. Many of these men are exactly that. Some women enjoy the secretive nature of a Sugar Daddy relationship and others are looking for new experiences or hot, adventurous romance. Regardless of what it is, many of the Sugar Daddy men are in it for the same reasons. These men enjoy helping out a woman in need or get off on wanting to spoil a princess who will appreciate him for what he can give her. Additionally, most Sugar Daddy arrangements only meet several times a month, if that. Having the freedom and relief of not needing to keep up with a full-blown serious relationship makes arrangements like this intriguing to both sexes.
The Sugar Daddy dating concept has been around for quite some time, but in the last several years, this lifestyle has increased rapidly! There are some who call it “glorified gold digging” but more and more that phrase is being ignored based on the fact that it really is a working relationship. Basically, it’s two consensual adults that are, in fact dating, while agreeing on a predetermined basis and have shared goals as to what each are looking for in a partner. It may not be traditional, but whatever floats your boat, right?
