How Much Should a Sugar Daddy Pay? All About Sugar Baby Income

How much do sugar daddies pay? What’s a sugar baby salary? There are a few types of payments that sugar babies usually accept, and we’ll tell you all you should know about them.

How much to ask from sugar daddy?

Generally speaking, there are two most popular types of payments in sugar dating. They are:

  • An allowance. An allowance is a fixed amount that is paid regularly, usually monthly. Sugar babies can spend this money as they want. A lot of ladies spend them on rent, pay for college, etc.
  • Pay per meet. Some ladies prefer to get paid for a date — that’s how many of them protect themselves from Salt daddies and Splenda daddies who are not going to pay a penny or can afford as much as a sugar baby wants to get. Moreover, some of them note that such payments allow them not to waste time on dates for free.

Which type of payment is better? It’s up to a sugar baby. If you are looking for a long-term relationship with a sugar daddy, an allowance may be a better option. But if you are currently looking for a daddy and go on multiple dates, PPM may work better for you.

Researchers note that PPM may be considered sex work if you meet only for sex. However, if it’s not the only thing that connects you, and if conversation, attending events, visiting interesting places are also the important part of your relationship, this won’t be considered sex work even if you get payments for each date.

For the ladies wondering “If I choose PPM, how much should I ask my sugar daddy for?” We have a simple answer: most ladies get $300 for a date, but there are top sugar babies who get $500-600.

But how much should a sugar daddy pay per month? Monthly allowances usually vary from $1,000 to $5,000.

How much to ask from sugar daddy? Consider the average prices and make a choice — you are free to ask for any amount — the question is if a sugar daddy agrees to pay it.

Let’s say you are looking for a long-term relationship with one sugar daddy. In such cases, sugar daddies usually pay about $2,000, so you can make $2,4000 yearly. Some babies date a few sugar daddies but spend less time with them, so you can earn less from each of them, but the total amount would be even larger.

If you choose pay per meet, your income will depend on the price you set and the number of dates. For example, if you have 3 dates a week and ask for $300 per date, you will get $900 per week. Yes, it’s more than the average amount of monthly allowance, but you should also consider the fact that finding new sugar daddies regularly is not the easiest task.
