‘Sugar Daddies’ give their ‘Babies’ financial support. Is this prostitution?
“Tommy” is proud to have six “sugar babies” on retainer. ABC profiled him and one of his “babies,” “Monte,” who gets $5K/mo and taught to be a “classy woman”—how to golf and cook. In footage, she coos like a baby, shakes her tits, and kisses Tommy on command. They both describe the relationship in businesslike terms, not romantic ones.
Tommy and Monte met at a party, but Tommy’s other five “babies” came from a website that matches young women with older men who expect to pay for the women’s beauty and youth. He makes a clear comparison of the women to candy, rating them from “Walmart” quality on up to “Nieman Marcus” level. “It’s just a matter of which ones you want to shop at,” Tommy says.
Sugar babies also can juggle more than one sugar daddy. All interviewed involved claim they’re not engaged in prostitution, because they offer and seek companionship, not only sex, for the money.
