Sugar Daddies Are Making a Comeback!

Sugar Daddies were a thing of the '80s, but according to Fox News, they may be making a comeback! If you're unfamiliar with the term, a Sugar Daddy is an older, usually married guy, who has a younger mistress on the side. He's wealthy and he generally buys her extravagant gifts, takes her on luxurious trips, and gives her money to shop with. In return, she offers him sex with no strings attached. I know what you're thinking: it sounds like prostitution, but according to Fox News’ sexpert, Yvonne Fulbright, "pop culture has started to make this mainstream . . . and glamorize women who are in these situations."

Now that the economy has taken a nosedive, there is a resurgence of the Sugar Daddy, as some women are seeing this as a good option to get things they need or want. But it isn't just women taking from wealthy men. There are also Sugar Mommies — rich women getting sex by offering handsome young men material things. There are even online dating services, like, that help young individuals find a mature person to pamper them. I'm in no way supporting this kind of relationship and am really surprised that this is still going on. I know this is a little over the top, but tell me, do you know anyone in a relationship like this?

Let's face it, it is all a matter of degree. Is it any different when a 25 year old hot woman marries a 50 year old guy with money? Let's face it, marriage can be a bartered relationship, sex and arm candy in exchange for money. People may not look at it the same way as sugardaddy, because there is a ring and a piece of paper involved, but to me, it is still the same thing.....two people being together for their own reasons, love probably the least of it.

I don't mind what people do, as long as it isn't my husband who is the sugardaddy. I don't think this is necessarily prostitution, but I could see how some would think that. (side note: Babysoftpink, while I agree with some of your points, I really think you should approach an argument differently because you come off very abrasive with a "holier than thou" attitude. Although, I guess this is a sensitive subject, so maybe you are feeling defensive because people aren't agreeing with you.)

Sorry guys; I didn’t mean to imply that I endorsed the notion of Sugar Daddies. But I can see how the posts could be interpreted that way so I made some additions to be more clear!

Logic is logic, all inferences, no emotional attachment to the concluding statements. What I am trying to get at instead is the bigger picture here. Nonetheless, if you would like to be evaluate my writing technique, personalities and the lack thereof, feel free to it. But I would even be more appreciative if you are directing your comments to the topic and most importantly to the core of my arguments as well as the aforementioned logic used to derive my questions. Ultimately we all have faculties capable to make personal decisions in our lives and whether those decisions jive with each other's standards and expectations is a non-issue. The issue is your ability to keep an open minded such that your love and kindness can flow through you to those who you consider as different than you. You do not have to agree with them or even like them but two people have an opinion can passionately discuss their ideas openly without one person intending to change the other person's opinion through coercion, insults or other insensitive/critical deeds. I am most certainly guilty of the traits because I too am human and we all want to believe that our thoughts breed better approaches to a matter. However, the reason for allowing different types of people, different attitudes to the same matter, and different life styles and choices in a society is what makes this world beautiful. If a mono-cultural society is not one interesting enough to maintain, why would we strive to achieve a mono-thinking society, even a small one on here? Afterall, perhaps there ought to be a "s" after "logic" for pluralities is one of the "twelve pure concepts of the understanding" (as proposed by Kant in his Critique of Pure Reason). Hopefully, with more willingness and understanding, we are able to see different sides of a matter. 'Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers is a book that I would recommend to you. The story is about the struggles of a girl who was a prostitute, even after marriage to a highly spiritual and dignified man, still voluntarily returned to her old trade. But both the man and god spend a lifetime to remove fear and hurt from her and replace them with love. Maybe not to the degree of prostituting yourself, but have you or anyone close to you fall from grace? If so, do you think that condemning the person is a healthy way to bring good to our society? To the law, there are variance in the degree of punishment to distinguish the severity of a crime. To me, a sin is a sin, whether you prostitute yourself or tell a lie. But I would still want to love the person even though it is not something that is easy to do. Before then, I would avoid judging or discriminating them because of their personal choices and I still want to respect the person even when their values are vastly in objection to mine.

*homewreckers, oopsie, sometimes I type too fast for my own good, ha.
Smacks83 Smacks83 8 years're my hero. I personally don't equate it with prostitution, and I hate how some posters are making them all into second-class humans. And to those who label these people as homewreakers and such, I think those labels should be for the man/woman that is stepping out of their marriage to find these people. They wrecked their own homes (because just because it's not this girl doesn't mean that Sugar Daddy won't find another). And if that Sugar Daddy is single, then why the hell not. Don't judge those you don't truly know.

Well, for one, "logics" is not the plural form of "logic," which is plural in its singular form - but I'm sure you knew that.
babysoftpink babysoftpink 8 years
Is punctuation and my style of writing all you've got? What are your logics to refute my points then? I'd like to hear them. By the way, I would appreciate it if you would edit out my posts and repost them here, the way you see fit. Also, after you screen capture my posts and submit to that certain website, please link it back to me as I would appreciate appropriate sources to be cited to my writing. As you know plagiarizing is not "nice"! :)

Ah, the accepted form of prostitution. I think someone would be offended if they were asked, "How much is your a$$ worth?" If you do this, they're asking you all the time, just not verbally.:P

I never knew it was a "dated" thing. I believe it was still happening all through the 90's and into today. To each his own. If the man or woman isn't married, then who really cares?

I don't see what the big deal is. If two consenting adults what to engage in a goods-for-sex relationship, I say let them indulge. I don't know if I would equalize it with prostitution.. I was always under the impression the mistress is exclusive to her sugar-daddy -- not turning tricks with all sorts of strangers. In any case, I see nothing wrong with it whatsoever.

Now I feel any married man should be faithful to his wife! But that being said when it comes to single sugar daddies... I'm all for it! In fact I feel prostitution should be legal given that it's basic capitalist principle. I think if we legalized prostitution is would be safer for everyone involved especially if it's in a brothel with security a la Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Vegas, we could better control stds, we could also help prevent underage exploitation... the list goes on and on about why I feel prostitution should be legal and adhere to certain laws and regulations. But I feel that just because you are not standing on a street corner does not mean you are not a prostitute. This type of relationship is prostitution in a more discreet way, and I can't judge anyone involved, unless they are cheating! People have sex for free without any emotional attachment involved, so I say why not get paid and/ or gifts.

==> "the one person who's defending prostitution as some kind of great career choice" I have following clarification in response to this statement: 1) There is indeed a fine difference between "sugar parenting/babying" and "prostitution". Otherwise, there would not be two distinctive phrase used to describe the behavior if they were the same. 2) Because there is a difference between "sugarbabying" and "prostituting", defending one from being unjustly qualified as a "prostitution" is necessary. 3) No where in the above was a defense for "sugarbabying" being a "great" career option. 4) defenses against "prostitution" being discriminated against and humiliated is not the same as endorsing or agreeing to the individual's behavior.

I laughed reading this because I know some women who expect jewelry and expensive classy gifts from their guys (who aren't married or even married to them) and if not given the things they want, they walk out on their "relationship" with this "terrible" guy. There really is not much of a difference between them and the sugar babies described in this topic. I had a boss who liked to described the gifts and monetary allowance her ex-fiance gave her. It never occurred how similar her pseudo-relationship was to that of a sugar daddy and sugar baby.

So based on your statements, the majority is always "right" ? If a group of students gang up to bully against a physically smaller classmate is right? Based on your logic, if 99.9% of the class agree to gang up on this one person, that position is "right" and "the absolute truth" and needs to be defended and hold up to? right? The "one" teacher intervening and disagreeing to the opinion is "ridiculous?" P.S. I thought your were "presiding" in the supreme court and have authoritative allies in the local courts since you speak with such a vindication of the subject of "Sugar Parenting in the context of Prostitution Law in the U.S."

I'm sorry, I only "reside" in my state, I don't "preside". And given that 99% of the other commenters seem to agree that this whole post is ridiculous (versus the one person who's defending prostitution as some kind of great career choice) I think we're done here.
