When it comes to sugar babies, most people are of the opinion that they live cushy lives. After all, there’s someone providing for them, giving them money, material items, whatever they want! Some even joke about becoming sugar babies to avoid working hard in life.
However, one sugar baby shared her experience and claimed it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Her story was uploaded by TikTok user Kisah Benar, video by Nara Media, and aptly titled “The Story of a Sugar Baby”. The woman, presumably a local, spoke at length about what drew her to being a sugar baby, her experience being one, and what finally got her to leave.
The sugar baby shared that she had been tempted to try being a sugar baby as a teen. “(Teenage years) are a time for you to try new things,” she stated. “What teen wouldn’t be interested in owning a penthouse, credit cards, expensive cars (and) body guards without even having to work?” The woman also shared that being a sugar baby gave them a sense of power. “I can get all these things without having to work hard,” she explained.
She stated that she had met her first sugar daddy via social media. He asked her to come to his place and promised to support her, financially, in everything. “From the time I got on the flight, to staying with him for a week, I didn’t have to open my purse at all,” she recalled. The woman was paid RM50,000 a month as his sugar baby. “All he wanted was for me to not find anyone else, and to belong to him only,” she stated, likening it to being a slave and doing what he wanted. “As is usual for a guy, all he wanted was (sex) and the like.”
The lady shared that her sugar daddy had been divorced and was about her grandfather’s age. She also shared that she would get together with other sugar babies, and they would compare the ‘gifts’ they got. Additionally, the girls would switch daddies with each other, if they felt like it. As there were no feelings involved, there were no problems in switching. “These people didn’t want us, they either wanted our selves or our bodies,” she said.
However, she finally gave up the sugar baby life when her father fell ill. “He needed surgery. So, I thought this might be payback,” the lady admitted. “People told me I had to make a choice. Either I continued (this) or I choose my family who raised me.” She shared she chose to leave it all behind. “I wanted to focus on my family again and I wanted to work hard on my own,” she said.
Of course, it wasn’t easy. She faced problems both financially and work-wise. She admitted to not having worked before and getting used to a smaller wage was hard. However, she remains staunchly by her decision. Determinedly, she stated, “No matter what, how hard my life gets, I will not return to the past.”
The woman also apologised to her family on camera and her crying visage truly captured how much she regretted being a sugar baby. We hope the lady is doing much better now after her sugar baby stint. Clearly, it is not a choice one should make lightly.
Malaysia had a sugar baby craze last year, especially after a survey showed Malaysia had a lot of sugar babies. Additionally, there was that whole mess with the sugar dating app Sugarbook.
