Alan “Action” Schneider says there’s no shame in being a Sugar Daddy.
“Sugar Daddy relationships are ongoing, and they are as monogamous as other relationships, often more so,” he claims, “Many Sugar Daddy relationships evolve into marriage or long term committed relationships. They are based on spoiling and pampering… and what’s wrong with that?”
Considered one of New York’s biggest promoters of the trend that sees rich, older men hooking up with young women who want to be spoiled and supported, Schneider is renowned for throwing lavish Sugar Daddy parties.
And next month, he’s inviting wealthy bachelors to learn how to live the Sugar Daddy lifestyle at “the first-ever Sugar Daddy Symposium at newly launched Sugar Daddy University.”
It’s not really a bricks-and-mortar university, but a one-night event at 230 Fifth, a popular Manhattan nightclub.
”We will teach Sugar Daddies the secret to attracting, meeting, and creating long-term relationships with Sugar Babies.”
The event will feature a panel of relationship experts, TV and radio personalities, actual Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies, and representatives from the plastic surgery and real estate business, according to a media release.
Toronto is the second-best Canadian city — just behind Vancouver — to find a “sugar daddy,” finds a 2013 study by SeekingArrangement.com, a sugar daddy and sugar baby dating website.
The average Toronto sugar daddy is 38 years old, with an average income of $271,198, and he forks over an average sugar baby allowance of $51,684 a year, the site says.
Earlier this year, SugarDaddyForMe.com, the world’s largest sugar daddy dating website, reported a 30% increase in interest in these relationships since 2012.
