asugarbaby’s diary (a great blog by the way) wrote an interesting post today on whether there is a female version of a sugar daddy. (http://wordpress.com/read/blog/id/64586302/). She believes, and I agree, that while sugar daddy arrangement are increasingly common, sugar mommy equivalents are incredibly rare.
It made me wonder why. Here’s my theory…There was a study done on the porn viewing habits of men and women. One of the surprising results was that men and women consume porn at surprisingly similar rates – they both watch/listen to/read quite a lot. But where there is a huge difference between men and women’s porn habit is that rate at which they are willing to pay for it.
When the study authors looked at pay sites on the internet, users are almost exclusively men. So, free sites: both men and women. Paid sites: just men. The authors drew two possible conclusions, both of which are probably contributors and therefore both right: (i) women are not accustomed to paying for sex, and they therefore also choose not to pay for porn; related to this they also speculated on a tendency for women to be more practical than men and, therefore, are less likely to pay for something they can get free; (ii) women, because sexuality is still stigmatized, are unwilling to signup for paid porn sites because it would involve using a credit card, typing their name, etc. As I said, there is likely truth in both of these theories.
But the long and the short: women like porn but are far less willing to pay for porn than men.
So how does this apply too sugar mommies. Just as men and women may similarly like sex, and sex with younger hotter partners, women simply are less inclined to pay for it. Therefore, no sugar mommies. Sorry Guys. IMHO.
