"Who Is your Sugar Daddy?" on CNN's "This Is Life with Lisa Ling"


CNN launched its series “This Is Life with Lisa Ling” Sunday night with a one-hour episode “Who Is your Sugar Daddy?”, main link here.

The report talked about the practice of “sugaring”, and the website “Seeking Arrangement” , link here, tagline “Relationships on Your Terms”.


The average female using the service was reported to be 27.  The average male was 40, and made $250000 a year.  Most of the men were married and seemed to be seeking mistresses. 

The idea that someone so “dependent” could be interesting seems alien to me.  Yet I can remember being counseled, “You need to experience being sponged off of.”   In fact, when I was growing up, most men were anticipating being the sole support for their future families, and the heterosexual world had been predicated on that mechanism.
