Sugar Baby: Trading love for a life of luxury
Where do ‘Sugar Babies’ come from?
The high costs of higher education in the U.S. and the increase of tuition fees in countries such as the Uk have driven the emergence of what is known as ‘Sugar Babies’.
Initially, it was young girls who were seeking economic gains from a man, usually older than them and with financial stability, wherein he would finance her studies or lifestyle in exchange for maintaining a relationship with him.
The concept of ‘exchange’
But, what would ‘Sugar Babies’ be without their ‘Sugar Daddies’. Those men are older, financially stable, and why not, good to see, that they love to be with young girls.
What looks like a ‘swap’ not perfect? They, receive the company of girls who are young and pretty, and they pay for, trips, dinners, and of course, studies. And all without any kind of commitment.
Advantages and dangers
The main advantage for the ‘Sugar Babies’ is, without doubt, the economic support that helps them finish off their student debts, financial problems, frustration, economic and any other matter of this type. It is estimated that the girls involved in this ‘exchange’ earn an average of three thousand dollars monthly.
However, not everything is sweet and rosy. In a relationship of this type there may be certain dangers:
At the time of sex, the ‘Sugar Daddy’ may present some health problems. Additionally, in many cases, the ‘Sugar Baby’ can’t feel satisfied or acquiring a sexually transmitted disease.
Although this is usually an open relationship, there can be physical violence, sexual, or psychological. That question of an older man does not mean that they can’t react in a violent way or that they always behave in the appropriate manner.
– Economic conflicts
The ‘Sugar Babies’ are usually not too interested in where the money comes from their ‘Sugar Daddy’. And can, therefore, end up caught up in patterns of illicit money.
How to be a ‘Sugar Baby’ without taking risks:
If after knowing the advantages and the risks involved you want to become one of them and you are interested in meeting men with a certain economic position, it is ideal that you look for websites and applications aimed at this kind of ‘exchanges’, in which you can indicate even up to what point you want the relationship to reach.
The dilemma of this practice is that many consider prostitution as the exchange of company for material things. However, there are agencies that are dedicated to unite these kinds of couples and ensure that the ‘Sugar Babies’ are not forced to have sex and that this is not a relationship of ‘engagement’.
