In our never-ending quest to understand how other people define the term Daddy, we bring you this article, “Sweet Deal“, which took a look at how some college students in the U.K. are earning money to pay for their studies. All signs point to the ridiculous amount of debt college kids go off into the real world with as to why there’s been an uptick in young people, in this case women, looking for generous older men, a/k/a Sugar Daddies, who are willing to pay them for their time.
Sugar Daddies have been around for as long as anyone can remember in both the gay and straight communities. However, since the advent of the internet, facilitating these arrangements has become easier than ever. We are sometimes asked if the Daddyhunt community is about connecting guys with Sugar Daddies. The answer is NO! We make a point of proactively removing users seeking financial arrangements from the Daddyhunt community.
But what we are wondering is, given the placement of this article in the mainstream media, do you think it further perpetuates the most common association with the word Daddy – that it has to be a sugary arrangement? As a community that celebrates Daddies and their admirers, whether they be a pauper or a prince, we’re of the mindset that the stigma surrounding Daddies and intergenerational relationships stems from this belief. It’s a misguided notion that the only reason why a younger man would want to be with an older man is because it’s transactional. As many of us on Daddyhunt can attest to, nothing could be further from the truth. #ExperienceMatters
