When youâ€™re a Sugar Mama, youâ€™re making your own cash. You have a ton of it to spare and you have a hot young guy on your arm making you look even better, while you sip some champagne at your regular table at The Ivy. You can feel good about yourself knowing that youâ€™ve created an enviable life. But those Benjamins donâ€™t come free. Youâ€™re at work all day. Dinner may be the only time all week you see your boo and that champagne is less a treat and more a necessity to drown out the stressors of your high-profile professional position.
As a Sugar Baby, you donâ€™t have to lift a finger â€” your manâ€™s maids are doing that for you. You sit in the lap of luxury and never have to fluff the pillows in the chair. You donâ€™t have to cook, clean, or care how the bills get paid. But those benefits donâ€™t come free, either. For all the hours you donâ€™t have to work, you also donâ€™t get to complain. Donâ€™t like what the private chef cooked for dinner? Too bad, you didnâ€™t pay for his time, so you eat that overcooked oxtail ragu and appreciate it. Not in love with your manâ€™s taste in gold-plated toilets? Oh well, you donâ€™t have to scrub â€˜em, so just turn off the recessed lights and try not to look at them. Miss your guy â€˜cuz he works a million hours a week? How do you think your lifestyleâ€™s getting financed? Not crazy about the fact that women give you the stink eye anytime youâ€™re with your beau? That people assume youâ€™re not bright enough to take care of yourself? That everyone figures youâ€™re not much more than an over-priced escort? Consider it your version of workmanâ€™s comp and call it a day.
