L.A. has the most generous sugar daddies, poll claims

March 27, 2012|By Walter Hamilton

Los Angeles has a new, um, distinction.

It’s the No. 5 city in the world for sugar daddies – wealthy older men seeking “mutally beneficial relationships” with younger women, according to a poll released Tuesday by SeekingArrangement.com, a matchmaking website for the rich and randy.

And Los Angeles is No. 1 in the amount of money that sugar daddies lavish on their “sugar babies.” The average Angeleno shells out a generous $5,710 a month on his inamorata – or “sugar addiction,” as it’s known on SeekingArrangement.com.

According to the survey, 2.31 of every 1,000 men in Los Angeles is a sugar daddy, sporting an average income of $313,536 and a net worth topping $8 million.

San Francisco is the No. 1 sugar daddy city, with 3.51 of every 1,000 men laying claim to that status, according to SeekingArrangement.com, which says there are hundreds of thousands of active sugar daddies worldwide.

So what makes a sugar daddy? Here is the website’s explanation: “You only live once, and you want to date the best. Some call you a mentor, sponsor or benefactor. But no matter what your desires may be, you are brutally honest about who you are, what you expect and what you offer.”

And who are the sugar addictions? “Sugar babies are students, actresses, models or girls & guys next door. You know you deserve to date someone who will pamper you, empower you, and help you mentally, emotionally and financially.”
