Here’s to the “scholars” of the University of Colorado Denver who decided to call the Sugar Bowl a myth. By studying people who were not Sugar Babies or Daddies. Bravo.
On May 6, the University of Colorado Denver released a study claiming that “Sugar Daddies” and “Sugar Mommies” were more myth than reality. I know the Sugar Bowl can be hard to navigate at first, but mythical? Tell that to the millions of Sugar Babies, Daddies, and Mommies out there.
The study alleges that a married couple’s attractiveness, wealth, and intelligence are negatively affected by an age gap of 8 or more years. Last I checked, Sugar Daddies look way hotter with an attractive Sugar Baby next to him. I mean, that’s part of the whole point.
Naturally, we dispute this claim. First off, whoever conducted this study clearly has no grasp of the Sugar Bowl or how it works. Only 33 percent of the site’s Sugar Daddies are married and you’re probably looking at close to the same numbers elsewhere as well. Monogamy isn’t exactly one of the main appeals of Sugar Dating.
Now, onto the claims of wealth decreasing, a true Sugar Daddy has the disposable income to maintain a Sugar Baby or multiple Sugar Babies at a time. No amount of eyelash batting or flashing that 1000 watt smile will cause a successful man lose common sense and decrease his net worth. Key word there: Net Worth. Upper-class gentlemen consider this their wealth, while fakers, or Splenda Daddies, consider their monthly income as wealth.
Perhaps the most offensive of the study’s claim is that age gaps in said relationships decrease the intelligence. Last I checked, the average Sugar Baby is college-educated and some Sugar Daddies make great mentors.
A good Sugar relationship is one where not only the Sugar Baby benefits financially, but one where she (or he) gains mentor-ship from the Sugar Daddy (or Mommy). And in turn, the Sugar Daddy finds a worthy companion who can bring energy and a fresh outlook to their lives.
Remember Sugars, regardless of the naysayers who will try to discredit Sugar Babies, Sugar Daddies, and Sugar Mommies—only those within our community truly understand. Stand your ground, hold your head up, and be proud of being part of the Sugar Bowl. Sugar on!
