Anonymous asked: Sugardaddying, sugaring or being a sugar baby is when a person (sugarbaby) finds someone else (a sugar daddy, sugar mama, and probably other terms I haven’t heard) who is looking for companionship (dates, communication and oftentimes exchanging pictures and sex acts, sometimes with dom/sub undertones, contrary to popular belief the daddy is not always dom!) and in exchange gives the sugarbaby an allowance and gifts as well as their companionship. It is viewed very negatively by society, (cont)
(cont) who often think sugar daddies are pathetic and lonely and, more often, that sugarbabies are greedy and tricky and are using their daddies, sometimes calling them gold diggers. This is super inaccurate, everyone in these situations knows what’s going on and usually they set expectations upon their first meeting. Sugaring falls under the sex work umbrella, along with hooking, being a webcam girl, among other things.
Thank you both very much! I had no idea about any of this, and I was in no way referring to these relationships in a negative light. While I’m still personally a little squicky about the usage of “Daddy” in a sexual sense personally, these relationships should be respected as the people participate in them are both consenting adults who are making their own choices about their life. They should be respected just as anyone else.
