Having a sugar momma could be a real treat to those who are fortunate enough to find one. Having someone who can support you financially and give you all that you desire *at a small price* is basically the ultimate dream of both male and female sugar babies, right?

Lots of guys are interested in dating older women. If you are looking for a sexy older lady to treat you right, there are certain things you need to do to bag yourself an ideal sugar momma.

Older women on the lookout for younger men expect certain qualities. If you hope to be wined and dined and maybe even get some free accommodation or your college fees paid off, then you must fulfill her expectations in every way.

A lot of people love the idea of a sugar momma. If it just so happens that it works out for two people to be involved with each other in a way that plays to both of their benefits and makes them both happy, so be it!

What is a sugar momma, exactly?

If you have no idea what a sugar mama is, you’re probably very, very lost. Although, you’ve heard of sugar daddy dating before, right? A sugar momma is basically the same thing, but with a woman being the provider.

A sugar momma is an older woman who showers a younger man with gifts or money in exchange for sex and companionship. They usually make the first move and use their money to flirt with the younger guys and lure them in.

She might even support her sugar baby like the way a real mother treats her children. Hence the term sugar “momma.” 

What does a sugar mama want? 

This sounds like a great deal for the younger man, right? He gets pampered and has money and other things given to him. But what is in it for the sugar momma? Why would she want to do this instead of just keeping it all for herself? [Read: How to seduce an older woman and make your fantasy come true]

1. To mentor a young man

A sugar momma might actually enjoy molding the mind of a young man. She probably has achieved a lot in her own life and has become a monetary success.

And she might have overcome a lot of difficulties and obstacles on the way to the top of her career. It makes her feel valuable to give guidance to young sugar babies.

2. To feel desirable and sexy

Sadly, a lot of women stop feeling attractive and sexy as they get older. So, in order to recapture her youth, she hangs around and dates sugar babies who show her romantic attention. She likes having the attention of a handsome young man because it makes her feel young again.

3. To be who they truly are

Since most, if not every, sugar mamas are relatively wealthy, they have overcome a lot of social restrictions on women. And this isn’t just restricted to her career, but also sexually too.

So she wants to find sugar arrangements where she can embrace her true self and live her life however she wants. She has no interest in marriage and children, but she does want companionship and sex. [Read: How to be true to yourself and start living life on your terms]

4. To express their feminist beliefs

A lot of sugar mommas feel like they have broken the stereotypes of women. They are on an equal playing field with men, and they want to express their feminist beliefs by having a sugar baby. The sugar momma-sugar baby power dynamics let her be in control of the relationship.

5. Companionship

A sugar momma probably isn’t looking for marriage or children, which is exactly why seeking sugar babies fits her needs perfectly. But just because she doesn’t want a husband doesn’t mean she doesn’t want companionship.

A sugar momma is looking for a sugar relationship to have a handsome young man on her arm to be her escort wherever she wants to go.

6. Sex

And then there’s sex. Sure, there are probably some sugar mommas who just like the companionship. But most of them like to have sex with their hot little sugar babies.

It’s not common for an older woman to be able to sleep with a young man, and so they embrace the opportunity to do this. [Read: Score a MILF – secrets to pick her up and hook up with an older woman]

What is a cougar/cub relationship? 

You might think that being a cougar is the same as being a sugar momma. But they’re not exactly the same. Sure, the cougar is the older woman, and the cub is her younger man. So, that dynamic is the same.

A cougar is typically a woman between the ages of 30 and 50 who enjoys sex with younger men. She might not intentionally set out to be with younger men, and sometimes it’s accidental. However, some do purposely set out to find younger men to have sex with. So, the cougar/cub relationship is purely sexual.

However, a sugar momma is a rich older woman of any age who gives gifts and money to younger men in return for sexual favors and companionship.

So, the main difference between the cougar/cub and sugar momma/baby relationships is the money and gifting aspects of the relationship *or lack thereof*. [Read: Cougar women rock! Reasons why they make really good partners]

Things to know about the cougar/cub relationship

You might think it sounds fun to be in a cougar/cub relationship, but in order for it to be successful, there are some things you need to remember. Here’s what you need to know.

1. Cougars are not desperate for sex

Just because a woman is older than a guy doesn’t mean she’s desperate for sex. If she’s a relatively good-looking person, then she’s definitely not desperate. There are a lot of men she can sleep with. So, if you make her feel like she’s desperate, it will turn her off.

2. Don’t send unsolicited dick pics

Most women hate unsolicited dick pics. They find it nasty and very distasteful when they don’t even ask for them.

The problem is that a lot of guys think that women like them, but they are just plain wrong. It might turn you on, but it doesn’t turn her on. It has the opposite effect. [Read: Dick selfies – why men love sending dick pics to women]

3. Cougars aren’t desperate for company

Many cougars have a very full social life. She probably has a lot of friends who she does a lot of activities with, such as going to bars, concerts, and other social events. So, again, don’t act like you are her only source of socialization. That’s usually not true.

4. Be polite in your DMs

If you find an attractive older woman on social media, it’s okay to contact her. But since your DM is unexpected, you need to be polite. You don’t want to creep her out.

Remember, you’re a stranger to her, so she will look at you with suspicion. So, be polite and friendly; otherwise, you’ll ruin your chances with her.

Who needs to find a sugar mama?

Well, no one actually needs a sugar momma unless they are homeless and can’t support themselves. So, if a young man has his own job and can provide for himself, why would he want a sugar momma? [Read: Being a sugar baby – the sugar rules to follow to be the sugariest]

However, just because the man can support himself doesn’t mean that he doesn’t want a wealthier lifestyle. And that’s where a sugar momma comes in. She can provide that for her sugar baby.

Perhaps he needs or wants someone else to pay his college tuition, rent, or other bills. Or maybe he just likes living a lavish lifestyle, and his salary can’t provide that for himself or anyone else. Hanging around a sugar momma makes him feel rich and successful. 

How much does a sugar momma pay? 

According to the Sugar Daddy website, there is a wide range of how and how much a sugar baby can get paid, but there are two main ways – per visit and a monthly allowance. Here is the breakdown. [Read: How to be a good sugar baby – 16 secrets to the luxe life]

1. Per visit

In large cities, the average sugar baby gets paid $500 per visit. On the low end, it’s around $300, and for the top end of the sugar momma spectrum, the payout is more like $500-1,800. In smaller cities, the average is a little lower at $300-500.

2. Monthly allowance 

Some sugar babies get paid a monthly allowance, just like a real “mother” would do for her own son. But, of course, it’s not $20 a month like for an actual child.

The average is $3,000 per month in larger cities. The low end is $2,000, and the top end is $6,000-10,000. For the smaller cities, it ranges from $1,000-5,000 with an average of $2,000.

What getting a sugar momma really means

There are a lot of different reasons why someone would seek out a sugar momma. Whether they’re simply into older women or just have expensive taste, they may want to find a sugar momma who can support them. [Read: What is a MILF? The surprising truths and thoughts behind its meaning]

Having a sugar momma isn’t all fancy cars and expensive belongings, though. There’s actually a lot more behind the relationship than just money and sex. Here’s your inside guide to what having a sugar momma really means.

1. There’s always someone to take care of you

If you’re looking to get yourself a sugar momma, then this is definitely one reason to do so. Some guys, usually those who grew up as momma’s boys, really love having someone pamper them and take care of them the way their own mother did.

The problem with this in a real relationship is that most women don’t want to treat their boyfriend like their son. Sugar mommies have no issues with this, however, and actually prefer it. [Read: Age gaps: The new trend in relationships]

2. They have needs that need to be met, too

They’ll only take care of you if you meet the needs that they have. This could be in the form of sexual favors or companionship, but whatever the terms are should be laid out and known by each party. Think of it as a kind of job, in a way. [Read: Using sex as a bargaining tool: Why it’s a terrible idea]

3. The sugar momma has the say-so

Basically, your sugar momma is acting as your dominant in this situation. It’s sugar momma’s right to tell you what she expects and that you’ll abide by all the rules she has set if you want to continue getting some of her sugar.

If you don’t follow through with her orders, you could find yourself replaced in no time. When you have a sugar momma, you become the submissive in the relationship. She is the one paying your rent, after all. [Read: How to be bossy in love without being bitchy]

4. There are rules put into place

Your sugar momma will give you rules to follow, just as stated above. The rules can be within the relationship and even outside of the relationship.

You may agree to have sexual relations only with each other, or you can both be free to see other people and maintain your sugar momma-sugar baby relationship. It all depends on the person and relationship.

5. The relationship dynamic is different from being with someone your own age

There is such a huge difference in the relationship between a sugar momma and her sugar baby versus a man and his girlfriend.

The dynamic can throw you off and cause some tension at first, just because you’re probably not used to having someone else tell you what to do and be the dominant person in a relationship. [Read: When does age difference in relationships matter]

6. The sugar momma does most of the planning

When it comes to sugar dating, you will have to do virtually nothing in terms of arranging dates or anything like that. This is where being the sugar baby is beneficial.

You’ll never have to make any plans or worry about showing how much you appreciate or care for her – that’s her job. You just sit back and do as you’re told.

7. There’s usually an adjustment period in the beginning

This can be the make-or-break period for many relationships as well. The adjustment period takes place because it’s not your typical relationship, and both parties can need some time to get used to it. [Read: New relationship doubts – 17 toxic and normal signs to read what you feel]

This is also a time when both people can feel the other out and make necessary changes to their agreement if they feel the need. After this period, the rest is smooth sailing – so long as both parties abide by their agreement.

8. Some sugar momma relationships can last years

There have been people who have had the same sugar momma for many, many years and are happy to be in that kind of relationship long-term. 

They love being supported and don’t feel the desire to move on to something real. These, however, can come to an end if the sugar momma feels that her baby is getting too old for her taste and it’s time to search for a sugar baby again. [Read: How to have a long-term relationship that lasts]

9. Others can last only a few short weeks

Some relationships just aren’t meant to last, and some sugar mommies can be very particular about the type of sugar babies they want. 

This means that she can go through many sugar babies in a matter of months until she finds one she wants to keep. And maybe she just likes the constant stream of new men. [Read: 15 reasons why you’re bored with your relationship]

10. The relationship isn’t meant for marriage

Sugar mommies don’t want marriage. They want someone to spoil and sleep with on a regular basis without commitment. 

And usually, the sugar babies don’t want to marry someone that much older than them, either. It’s a perfect match this way, and that’s why sugar baby and sugar momma relationships can last for so long. [Read: Subtle signs of a loveless, unhappy marriage]

11. It can be more common than you think

If you go out on the town for one night, you very well may run into a few different couples that have this sugar arrangement going on, and you don’t even realize it. 

Although sugar daddies tend to be more common, sugar mommies are out there running amuck and taking over young men one at a time.

How to land yourself a sugar momma

Older women looking for potential sugar babies are often referred to as cougars. These are usually smart, sexy women who take care of themselves and know what they want.
