    To all previous and future sugar babies!!!!

    Could you please tell me how it is being a sugar baby whether it be good or bad, why you got in to it and is it worth it?

    No haters or unnecessary people commenting, please only comment if genuine and if you were a sugar baby or are thinking of becoming one.

    The only people who are actually against it are unattractive men afraid they will never get girls and ugly old shrews who are jealous, it's a perfectly reasonable lifestyle choice.

    Not at all.


    The only people who get really mad in discussions around relationships are people nobody wants

    still convinced this is sarcasm, either that or im being really dense today.

    but seriously, why would anyone aspire to be a sugar baby? it shows no life ambition, no stability and there just gonna bounce from man to man depending on who has the most money and who dishes the most out.
    thats no life and if anything, it shows they have no morals.

    I wouldn't be a sugar daddy just making this clear.


    It has nothing to do with morality it's a free trade and people are making an agreement. You could say the same about artists or musicians, their lives are not stable but they do it anyway.

    How does it show no life ambition? I sugared to fund my Law degree from Oxford University, I graduated with zero debt and have a large amount of savings as a recent grad, which is not something any of my friends can say. I'm now working towards securing a position as a trainee solicitor. So why don't you only talk about things you actually have a clue about, because this is not one of them.

    It's risky if you consider the fact that they may just want fun, in a sexual sense. Sex with an old man doesn't particularly sound fun to me, but each to their own.

    Pros: money and get gifts

    Cons: have to sleep with probably unattractive overweight older men who potentially have families and kids. Not to mention the realisation that you're not much more than a prostitute. Probably find it difficult to have a real relationship. *

    I support freedom of choice and respect OP's decision since it's clear she has a plan, as a more general view, I think the Anglosphere is stupidly inconsistent with it's treatment of relationships. Polyamourous, interracial and same-sex relationships are held up as amazing examples of human development, but as soon as it's a rich man with a younger woman, or a woman who is submissive, everyone gets triggered. It's as if post-modern beliefs on decency are fueled less by rationality and more by the hysterical jealousy of losers.

    Technically it is still earning money..
    Just by a different means..

    I paid my university accommodation summer rent, which I otherwise wouldn't have been able to do and don't know what I would have done in that case. However, they do try and get you as cheaply as possible so you have to be quite smart about it. You might also find it disturbing having an older man all over you and being seen in public with him. As bad as it sounds, what makes it easier is you'll often be drinking nice wine (or whatever your drink of choice is) so you don't have to go through it painfully sober. It actually takes a while to find a decent one (by whatever standards you have - mine were that they should be about 40 years old, rich and not ugly), so start looking if you want to consider doing it and you don't have to go through with it unless you find someone you're interested in.

    If you're happy to be a soulless mercenary then go for it.

    But each guy you sleep with radically decreases your ability to pair bond.

    Then again, if you're seriously considering this, then you've likely lost that ability anyway.

    So if there's a guy cucked enough to pay for it, use him. Fools deserve what comes to them.

    Exactly, she might not even be having sex and if she is, it's not for us to criticise since we're not the ones doing it.

    the whole concept just seems sad. These presumably older rich males paying young women for their company. What makes it even more sad is the fact that the men obviously know that these women have no interest in them and that they're only there for the money/gifts.
