What is a Sugar Momma?

Sugar Momma meaning

There are several variations of the word all with the same meaning. A Sugar Mama is the female form of the Sugar Daddy phenomenon. Just as a Sugar Daddy, Sugar Mommas are wealthy mature people who provide financial support, stability, mentorship, pampering, and or general payment and allowances to younger people for their time and companionship.

Among the variations of the word used to refer to the female version who is the provider in the relationship are; Sugar Momma, Sugar Mama, Sugar Mami, Sugar Mummy and Sugar Mum. The pronunciation and spelling vary by country and region, but they are all used for the same reference.

Sugar Mommas are often confused for “cougars”, but they are not the same. Cougars are also older women, typically 30 to 50 years old who are looking for sexual encounters with younger men often called their cubs. A Sugar Momma is much more than that, these are women looking for arrangements with younger men or women, referred to as their Sugar Baby, to share their time and experiences with, in exchange they provide gifts, meals at top of the notch restaurants, getaways and pocket money or allowances, sex is not always present and when it does happen, it is on mutual agreement.

Origin of Sugar Terms

The term Sugar is a slang often used to modify “sweeten” something and as an alternative for money.

The Original term of Sugar Mama came from a candy produced in 1965 by the James O. Welch Company, it was a companion to the Sugar Daddy, and Sugar Babies. A Sugar Mama was a chocolate-covered caramel sucker, basically a Sugar Daddy covered in chocolate. It has not been produced since the 80’s.

The first known expression of the term Sugar Daddy goes back to the 19th century, this was a nickname given to a magnate by his wife, 24 years younger than him Adolph Spreckels who ran a sugar company.

Sugar Mama is now used as a modified version of the original phrase ‘Sugar Daddy”, it was changed to fit a woman who does the same thing for the company of a Sugar Baby. The conservative nature of the world for several decades made it sort of a taboo, it wasn’t until the late 60’s that the culture of Sugar Dating truly gained a foothold in the American stage. This period saw a different kind of culture emerge, the women’s liberation movement freed women from oppression and male supremacy, as a result, women became more shameless with their relationships and it is no surprise that the rate of divorce grew sharply.

While Sugar Daddies have always been a thing, general acceptance of these type of arrangements have just recently become more accepted publicly, less so to speak of Sugar Mommas. Regardless, the Sugar Mama term spread thanks to the rise of older women paying for the love of younger men. Sugar Mommas have embedded into popular culture thanks to the contribution of music, there are several songs named after these generous, mature, loving females who don’t mind being the provider in the relationship. It is now becoming more common to find younger men seeking a wealthy mature woman to set an arrangement with, and mommas who are looking for a younger, attractive man with whom she can have a good time.

Difference between Sugar Baby and Sugar Momma

Sugar Babies are young male and females between the ages of 18-30 years old who are seeking to be supported and or pampered by an older wealthier male or female who would be the Sugar Daddy or Sugar Momma.

Sugar Babies are usually between part-time jobs and college and on the struggle to pay for tuition, rent, bills and day to day expenses. Sugar Mommies are a ladder that makes their way through college a lot easier as these Mommas are usually women who have achieved great success in their careers and are enjoying the benefits of their hard work and efforts. Sugar Mommas are typically 40-69 years old, they could be single, married and looking for an adventure, or currently going through a divorce and need an escape, whatever the case may be, we can assure you that Sugar Mommies have a lot more to offer than meals at pricey restaurants and financial support.

These successful women put less emphasis on money, they have gone through a lot to get to where they are and throughout these experiences, they have found the best version of themselves, they know what they want, and they don’t have a problem going after it. They are loving, caring and passionate and they want to feel loved and desired. They’ve learned to appreciate their singleness and most of them have no time or interest in a full-time relationship. Paying a Sugar Baby is their way of showing they appreciate you.

A big plus is that their age and experience make them great lovers. Yes babies, these Mommas are hot in bed and let’s say it, dating a hot mature woman is a fantasy of many young boys growing up. They are more open to try new things and have reached an incredible point of sexiness that they are not afraid to share with you. Without a doubt they have a lot to teach their Sugar Babies without the ties and all the drama that come in adjunction with a traditional relationship.
