Sugar daddy sites are made for you if you desperately want a sugar daddy to fund your education or lifestyle, or you wish to become a sugar daddy and pamper a stunningly beautiful sugar baby.There's nothing wrong with entering into a consensual, reciprocal relationship in which "love" is exchanged for material gain.Sugaring can absolutely be a feminist act when performed by women who own their sexuality and are up-front about their needs and expectations.Take, for example, the demographics of the Sugar Baby Summit: it was overwhelmingly populated by female SBs seeking male Sugar Daddies.One of the site reps chalked this up, in part, to some gender-biased language in the first email blast sent out about the event, which was later changed to be more inclusive.
