Houston Ranks #18 Among Places to Find a Sugar Daddy. Go Us!

It is amazing how life has changed over the past few years. In just five short years we've seen an African American in the White House, several states recognizing gay marriage, the first Latin-American woman Supreme Court Justice and now this news just hit: The national average age of a "Sugar Daddy" has dropped from 44 in 2007 to 39 years old! The Web site SeekingArrangement.com, the "world's largest Sugar Daddy dating Web site," has just released some stunning demographics about the current state of sugar daddiness in its comprehensive report "Top 20 Cities to Find a Sugar Daddy."

According to the site, Sugar Daddies are a young bunch, with the majority working in finance of some sort. They bring in about $270,000 and give their sugar ladies an allowance of 61 grand per year. The best place to find a Sugar Daddy in 2013 is Hot-lanta; however, Houston isn't too shabby. Space City is the number 18 city on the list to find yourself a Sugar Daddy, and H-town's dudes spend about $4,383 per month on their cowgirls. Modern Sugar Daddies in Houston now 42 years old and make approximately $666,736 annually. Of all the things the city should be proud of, I think we can agree that this is somewhere near the middle to bottom of that list.

While I have no idea what constitutes a Sugar Daddy to SeekingArrangments.com, the dictionary defines the term Sugar Daddy as a "rich middle-age or older man that bestows gifts on a young person for sexual favors." I always pictured Sugar Daddies as old, feeble men with canes and smoking jackets who buy young girls lots of blow, but perhaps I was wrong. A youngish dude can also want to pay for sex from someone who's not a hooker.

Given this definition, there are a few surprising modern sugar daddies out there that I may have never considered before.
