It’s often considered a taboo topic in today’s society, but a group of men are sounding off about what it’s like to be a sugar daddy, revealing both the pros and cons of dating younger partners and showering them with gifts in return for sex.
The anonymous men shared their personal stories on the confessions app, Whisper, and their experiences range from positive and happy to regretful and bitter.
‘Being a sugar daddy is lonely when you realize the attention is fake,’ wrote one man on the app, which allows users to anonymously share secrets and connect with other unidentified users.
One guy similarly revealed that trading money for the company of a younger, attractive partner was unsatisfying, writing: ‘I’m sick of being a sugar daddy. Time for me to find a lady who will take care of me for a change.’
Still, not all men were disillusioned with their role as a provider to younger women or men.
One guy offered: ‘I enjoy being a sugar daddy. I have been blessed with more than enough to make a different in someone else’s life.’
Echoing this sentiment, that being a sugar daddy is somehow virtuous, one man posted on the app: ‘I actually enjoy being a sugar daddy. I get what I want and I get to help them out… everyone wins.’
Another man wrote: ‘Being a sugar daddy was the best decision I’ve ever made.’
While none of the users mentioned themselves by name, there are a number of dating apps that exclusively match sugar daddies with sugar babies.
Other men on Whisper expressed concern about their relationships with their sugar babies, with one user revealing: ‘I found out my sugar baby cheated on me with another sugar daddy.’
‘I think I should be upset?’ wondered the man, who like other users, seemed to be unclear about the so-called rules of such liaisons.
On the other side of the spectrum, one guy worried that his sugar baby was in love with him while he most definitely was not in love with her.
Another man revealed his younger girlfriend had left him because ‘$3,800 a month wasn’t enough for her.’
‘WTF?’ he asked the online community, adding: ‘I let her borrow my cars, too.’
Some men discussed their non-monogamous lifestyles on the app, with one user divulging: ‘I’ve been a sugar daddy for the last two years for three different people.
‘And I have a girlfriend,’ he revealed, adding proudly: ‘How do I get away with it? I tell her I’m paying off loans.’
Meanwhile, one man said he couldn’t keep up with the situation he had put himself in, resolving to ‘retire’ from being a sugar daddy because he has ‘too many boys’ and not enough time for all of them.
