The term “Sugar Baby” is quite open to interpretation—while some may scrutinize the term for objectifying women, we wholeheartedly disagree. A “Sugar Baby” is a beautiful, independent woman who is treated with class. She is pampered because she knows how to take care of a man. The negative assumption of a “Sugar Baby” as a mindless, money leech is simply that: an assumption. And you know what happens when you assume…
Here are some of the more prominent Sugar Baby stereotypes that are often assumed, but never true.
1.) Sugar Babies are only money-motivated.
Women are attracted to success, but success in itself transcends beyond money. Obviously, wealth helps in a relationship. But ask any woman–they would rather date a nice, successful man compared to a richer jerk. When choosing a Sugar Daddy, Sugar Babies factor other important qualities: intelligence, mentorship, and sophistication.
2.) Sugar Babies are entitled, spoiled, brats.
A “sugar” relationship is never one-sided–rather, it is mutually beneficial. A Sugar Daddy chooses his Sugar Baby depending on how much she offers in a relationship. Whether it be friendship, youth, or charisma, a Sugar Baby has value and utilizes it.
3.) Sugar Babies exchange sex for money.
Simply put: this isn’t prostitution. It is a relationship, not an exchange. While some Sugar Daddies favor sex, others often engage in mutually beneficial relationships for the companionship and experiences. It all depends on what both sides are seeking in their arrangements.
4.) Sugar Babies are all looks and no brains.
The assumption that with beauty, comes no brains, could not be farther from the truth. Interestingly enough, the majority of Sugar Babies on SeekingArrangement.com are college students pursuing their various degrees. Others are older with jobs. Obviously, some are more intelligent than others, but why let the bad define the good?
5.) Sugar Babies have no jobs.
“Sugar” should never be confused with dependence. The Sugar Baby community is diverse in itself: from college students, to artists and entrepreneurs, Sugar Babies will accept generosity regardless of their job status.
