A new dating app has found out where in America you’re likely to find a gay sugar daddy. Road trip, anyone?
So, according to trusted resource Wikipedia, a sugar daddy is a man who offers support to a younger companion. This support usually comes in the form of money or materialistic gifts.
Dating app DaddyBear has done a bit of research into this growing market, considering the fact helps “sugar babies” find their dream sugar daddy in a Tinder-style platform for men from all over the world. The research has found that the average age of a gay sugar daddy in America is 42.
That’s not where DaddyBear’s research ends either. The research looked into the top ten cities in America for finding gay sugar daddies and it seems that New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles are the places to go if you’re in need of a bit of sugar.
It’s estimated that 2% of the American population are adult male sugar babies, and it seems the trend is only set to grow thanks to the likes of DaddyBear. Justin White, CEO of the dating app, said:
“After surveying all 100,000 DaddyBear members, we found that the ratio of gay daddies to gay babies is about 1:2, which tops all the other gay dating apps. Our data show that about 35K members are daddies and about 65K are babies.”
So, all sugar babies out there, you’ve got a bit of competition on your hands fighting for that ultimate daddy.
Whilst on the topic of sugar daddies, who can turn up the opportunity to rewatch this classic Drag Race clip, eh?
