‘Implants and cars paid for’
Brooke West says she has received gifts worth a total of $30,000 from multiple sugar daddies.
“I have been given the latest iPhone, a MacBook Pro, return flights and accommodation to other countries and my French Bulldog.”
The 26-year-old works part time as a stripper and dancer, and meets her sugar daddies through her work in strip clubs.
“Sugar babies have regular income streams on their terms, with flexible hours and bonus gifts and experiences . . . the question isn’t ‘Why do I?’ but instead ‘Why aren’t you?’”
But she says her relationships do not involve sex and are mainly about companionship. Some are willing to pay hundreds of dollars just to have lunch with her, West says, and many of her workmates have sugar daddies too.
“As a dancer, I’ve had numerous regulars that gave me things ranging from bookings every few weeks to gifts like perfumes, shoes, jewellery and cash,” she says.
“I’ve known of cars and breast implants being paid for.”
She says most of her sugar daddies are men in their 40s.
“I guess for them, they like being the white knight helping a damsel in need.
“There’s a huge misconception that sugar daddies are decrepit 80-year-olds with an oxygen tank or skin condition in tow, it’s just not true.
“In the age of dick pics and the online equivalent of cat calling, having a man that could actually hold a conversation, that genuinely just wanted to help me achieve or obtain certain things and was in a position to do so feels pretty good,” West says.
West thinks love-for-money online sites however are being “hijacked by inexperienced girls with no clue” and sugar babies who may not know how to manage guys who “just want to hook up”.
“There are men that can become controlling, creating a toxic situation if you don’t know what you’re doing and how you manage that.”
