Forming a sugar baby and sugar daddy arrangement is becoming an increasingly popular decision, with loads of young women and men entering into sugar babying in order to bring in some extra (read: A LOT of) cash. Being a sugar baby can involve going on dates, spending time with and sometimes sleeping with a sugar daddy or sugar mummy in return for gifts, money or a regular cash allowance. It's often described as a mutually beneficial relationship and many of the people involved don't see it as much different from regular dating - just with some added perks.
Sugar babies can be women, men or people of any gender, but they're usually young and many are students, with some earning an allowance of around £2,000 a month on top of being treated to expensive gifts and meals. Meanwhile, as Cosmopolitan UK's brand new podcast 'All The Way With...' has revealed, sugar babies can earn even higher figures, with one even being left the estate of her sugar daddy in his will.
So, whether you're already a sugar baby, daddy or mummy and want to grow your network, or whether you're new to the game and want to start in a regulated environment, here are nine of the best sugar daddy websites to try. Some people form sugar baby arrangements by approaching people on dating apps or social media channels like Instagram, but the safest way to do it is to go through a regulated site like the ones below.
Best sugar daddy websites
Possibly the most well-known sugar daddy website and the world's largest, SeekingArrangement has over 10 million users, including eight million sugar babies and two million daddies and mommas. It's free to join, but you'll need to pay for a membership in order to get benefits that ultimately mean you meet more people. Premium membership is free for students with a university email address, while sugar babies can purchase premium membership for $2o a month (around £15) and sugar daddies/mommas pay $90 (around £70) per month.
Unlike other sites, SugarDaddyMeet restricts users to only female sugar baby and male sugar daddy arrangements. It's slightly pricier for sugar babies, with membership listed as $50 (around £39) per month for both sugar babies and daddies. Plus, membership is restricted to users from the 20 richest countries in the world.
SugarDaddy.com offers a three-day free trial for users to try the site before paying for a membership, so you don't have to part with cash until you're sure you like it. Platinum membership starts at $39.95 (£30) per month for all users, and Diamond starts at $44.95 (£35).
Not to be confused with the previous, SugarDaddie.com has been running since 2002 and has over five million members worldwide. It's free to join and calls itself simply an "online dating" site for like-minded people.
5. Secret Benefits
Secret Benefits offers users the option to seek a lifestyle upgrade, mentorship or simply the opportunity to do some networking. It's free to join and you can select a username that means your real name is hidden.
SugarDaddyForMe was launched in 2004 and doesn't restrict users to a particular gender when signing up. It boasts four million members, plus you can register for free and get a three-day free trial before purchasing membership.
Slightly different to other sugar daddy websites, MissTravel aims to connect travel lovers for "travel dating". Instead of joining as a sugar baby or a sugar daddy, you either select that you want to "whisk someone away" and find a "beautiful companion", or you select that you want to "be whisked away" and travel for free.
WhatsYourPrice works with a unique format, whereby "generous members" place cash bids on "attractive members" in order to "win" a date with them. They also promise to provide results quickly, with the average member going on a date just three days after joining the site.
Rather than explicitly calling itself a sugar daddy website, AgeMatch simply calls itself an "age gap dating" platform. Age gap relationships on the site aren't restricted to older men and younger women, as there's also an option for older women to date younger men. While the age gap relationships on the site don't involve the same financial arrangement as sugar daddy relationships usually do, you still need to pay for premium membership.
