“Prostitution revolves around all different kinds of services, but it all revolves around sex. With this, it revolves around a relationship with aspects of sex, which is what a relationship is,” Bella said, describing how arrangements on SeekingArrangement are different than traditional sex work.
For some women, rubbing shoulders with powerful and successful men is an education unto itself. But unlike in the workplace, where mentorship can be a guise for sexual harassment, in sugaring a young woman might have more control of the terms of engagement. Three women I spoke to said their sugar daddies helped them find entry-level jobs or internships in the field they wanted to pursue. One San Francisco–based sugar daddy fondly recalled how he coached his sugar baby in salary negotiations with the tech firm she now works for.
At the start of the month, the men pay her. She’s able to stay on top of her bills and ensure the men requesting her time will have it. While at UNC, Anna was a Carolina Covenant scholar, which promises a graduation free of student loans through grants, scholarships and work-study jobs. Hailing from a low-income background is a necessity to be a Carolina Covenant scholar, but expenses piled on top of tuition, and Anna found herself relying on the “allowance” from sugar daddies. Anna, as she’s known on the site, wanted to be a congressional staffer in Washington, D.C. She thought she would be a sugar baby until she found internships, but said this career was something she “fell in love with” throughout her college and post-grad years.

Usually, a sugar daddy relationship consists of a wealthy man (sugar daddy) who financially supports a much younger woman (sugar baby) in exchange for the obvious.

Emily’s sugar daddy would take her on trips, pay for nice hotels, take her to eat at nice restaurants, occasionally pick up living expenses and pay for clothes online. She described most of the men who meet her on the site as middle or upper-middle class men who work typical jobs but do not have many expenses. SeekingArrangment considers itself a “venue,” and therefore absolves itself of any responsibility to run background checks on users.
Whatsyourprice.com offers users a more upfront approach to the arrangement side of sugar dating by requiring potential dates to offer a cash allowance with their invitation. So if a member views your profile, likes what they see and decides they want to take it to the next level, you’ll receive a message saying they’re interested and can offer you an allowance of increments between $50 to $200 to reimburse you for preparing for the date. MillionaireMatch is a little different.
The girl I met on Seeking Arrangement used to say that all the time. Just because you have the money you have the power. But I view the dynamic of sugar dating as a mutually powerful relationship unless the sugar baby is desperate for money, and when they’re desperate for money, that’s when it’s a power imbalance.

They quickly found that the man had been an employee of City Hall and was now a student in a New York University program that is in Brooklyn, near the Jay Street-MetroTech subway stop. He’s married with children. He is not an investment banker (nor does he work at Bain, the management consultant firm). After discussing the drama, the two women decided to take advantage of the unusual circumstance.
So, on the weekends he travels to New York City and there, he meets young men. Brian won’t share his real first name with sugar daddies, and Emily draws the line at contact through any form of social media. Both, however, prefer that sugar daddies share a decent amount of information with them before meeting in person. Just to be safe. In 2017, 44 million students in America took out loans to pay for college, amounting to a national total of $1.45 trillion of debt — a 560 percent increase from total student debt in 2004.
