This question came to me this week, “Is the sugar baby lifestyle bad”? The short answer to this question is NO! Of course my detractors in the world will say that I am dead wrong and list about 157 puritanical reasons as to why we should be ashamed of ourselves. Pfft…. I could turn around and list my 157 reasons why we should all just live and let live.
As a society we have come leaps and bounds since the pilgrims first set foot down on Plymouth Rock. We have however managed to cling to certain ideals unnecessarily. Man, society, lifestyle, standards and definitions of love have evolved into so many different things. We no longer brand women with a very obvious scarlet letter. We do shame her publically though if we even think she is a cheater. We say that men can marry men, but some states still fight it as standard law.
I am not here to change everyone, but I will always fight the masses when it comes to lifestyle choice. For instance, I believe that monogamy is not for everyone. Polyamory is not just a fad folks. Homosexuality happens naturally. Would you say poly or being gay is bad? I already know that most would say monogamy is the way to go. Hell, Patti Stanger makes it a rule in her matchmaking club. I refuse to believe that we are all the same and societal norms fit every person, situation or group. Individuality or uniqueness is what makes us a “melting pot”.
Let me bring it back home to my original question. Firstly, someone please define the word bad. The dictionary says the following:
- [bad] adjective, worse, worst; not good in any manner or degree.
- having a wicked or evil character; morally reprehensible: There is no such thing as a bad boy.
- of poor or inferior quality; defective; deficient: a bad diamond; a bad spark plug.
- inadequate or below standard; not satisfactory for use: bad heating; Living conditions in some areasare very bad.
- inaccurate, incorrect, or faulty: a bad guess.
I recently spoke with a NY Post reporter about being a Sugar Baby. Although the article’s focus was SA, I managed to get a nice quote and some publicity for myself.

When Megan, 23, was planning her move to NYU in August 2012 for a grad-school program, she knew it wasn’t going to be cheap.
She worried over the phone to a friend about the costs of living and joked that maybe she’d use a dating site to score a few free meals in her new, expensive city. Her friend suggested she try out sugar dating. “I was like, ‘What’s that?’ I’d never heard that term before,” Megan says. Modal Trigger Megan.
A quick Google search led her to SeekingArrangement.com, an online site that connects well-heeled benefactors, otherwise known as sugar daddies, with lesser-off “sugar babies,” and specifically targets Megan’s demographic: college students over their heads in debt. Megan put up a profile even before she’d touched down in the city and was invited out by a 47-year-old lawyer. She spent one of her first nights in the city enjoying fancy sushi and cocktails, and it pulled back the curtain on the privileged world of moneyed Manhattan. “I was skeptical at first about it because I was like, this is like the kind of thing that could attract a lot of creeps, but [it was] actually really nice.” Read the rest here…
