Thanks to my Sugar Dad­dies, I can en­joy the good life, says carer on £16k

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS - By LAURA WITHER AND RE­BECCA DAY news­[email protected] @MENnews­desk

A CARER on £16,000 a year claims she’s been able to af­ford a four-bed­room house from the money she made dat­ing sugar dad­dies.

Anas­ta­sia Robert­son, from Sal­ford, says she’s been treated to lav­ish gifts and stays in five-star ho­tels, some­thing she’d have been un­able to do on her salary.

But not ev­ery­one who be­comes a sugar baby - some­one who dates older men in ex­change for money or gifts - is so pos­i­tive about the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ear­lier this year, the Manch­ester Evening News spoke to Jes­sica Hyer, 24, who said be­ing a sugar baby had dam­ag­ing long-term con­se­quences.

She turned to sugar daddy dat­ing af­ter get­ting into debt while study­ing at univer­sity in Manch­ester, and said the ‘pay per dates’ ar­range­ments soon be­came sex work for her.

How­ever, Anas­ta­sia, 23, who has been a sugar baby for two years af­ter sign­ing up to web­site Seek­ing Ar­range­ment, says she makes dates sign an agree­ment to say their re­la­tion­ship will be pla­tonic.

She’s dated eight men - in­clud­ing a doc­tor, an en­gi­neer and a CEO. “I’ve been flown out to Spain on an all-in­clu­sive hol­i­day and I went on a yacht trip and paraglidin­g,” she said.

“A sugar daddy once paid for me to spend the night at Ho­tel Gotham - which is a re­ally posh ho­tel in Manch­ester that I’ve al­ways wanted to stay at, and an­other paid for me to get a dragon tat­too on my back.

“I’ve had around £3,000-worth of presents as well. I’ve got a beau­ti­ful neck­lace, a leather ruck­sack, leather shoes and a bracelet too.”

Anas­ta­sia still dates people through other apps like Tin­der, and through friends.

Anas­ta­sia says she’s been warned to steer clear of men who sign up to sugar dad­dies web­sites with bad in­ten­tions.

Nick­named ‘salt dad­dies’, they might even cre­ate fake pro­files. She said: “A ‘salt daddy’ is ob­vi­ously the op­po­site to a sugar daddy. Salt dad­dies prom­ise you the world and what they’re say­ing al­ways sounds too good to be true.”

Anas­ta­sia has had an all-in­clu­sive hol­i­day in Spain and a stay at a lux­ury Manch­ester ho­tel, thanks to sugar dad­dies
