Many times the fact that some women decide to have a Sugar Daddy or that some men look for a “Sugar Baby” is cause for criticism or other negative reactions, especially in Latin American countries. However, in many European countries such as Germany, France, Italy and even Spain, it is increasingly common to find this type of relationship.
According to the renowned German application and platform MySugarDaddy, the Latin American market is one of the fastest growing in recent years. Argentina is the fourth country with the most active users on the platform, only behind Colombia and Chile.

A trend or something that is here to stay?
Philip Cappelletti, Co-Founder and CEO of the platform comments that this type of relationship is something that is here to stay in the region, “For example, in Germany, mainly, and in other European countries, we have had users for more than 10 years now. years and many of them, are active since then (specifically the Sugar Daddies). Although a lot has to do with education and the mentality of different cultures, we have noticed that these issues of having a Sugar Daddy or a Baby are more and more commented on, and we must see it as a lifestyle, not as something negative.
Currently we can see influencers and public figures openly commenting that they have a “Sugar Dating” relationship, that is, that they have a sugar daddy or a baby. Sugar dating is about an interaction between two responsible adults in which the conditions are clear from the beginning, both parties accept these conditions, which suit each other and adhere to the terms of the relationship. The important thing is that both agree to the exchange.
“Something we have noticed in Latin America is that many people tend to associate this lifestyle with negative issues, however, the couple is the one who establishes the agreements of their relationship from the beginning. And as in many other applications to find dates or couples, we have seen users who have found love through SugarDaddySeek.
