Sugar dating is on the rise in the Philippines amid COVID-19 pandemic

A surge in sugar dating was seen in the Philippines by an online dating brand amid the community quarantine brought by the coronavirus pandemic.

Sugarbook noted that it saw a “staggering” 65% online traffic surge in the country from March to August 2020, where 79% of them were sugar babies.

The dating site registered the most number of Filipino users in the National Capital Region, where 12,450 of them are sugar babies and 4,507 are sugar daddies.

Calabarzon recorded the second-highest number of users, with 4,822 sugar babies and 1,442 sugar daddies.

It was followed by Central Visayas with 3,646 sugar babies and 1,086 sugar daddies.

Central Luzon ranked the fourth Philippine region where there were 2,391 sugar babies and 270 sugar daddies.

Meanwhile, Davao Region placed fifth with 1,799 registered sugar babies and 103 sugar daddies.

All in all, the country logged a total of 28,310 sugar baby users and 7,526 sugar daddy users.

The critically-acclaimed dating brand said that Filipino sugar babies had the age range between 18 to 34-years-old and earned an average monthly allowance of P49,700.

Majority of the registered sugar babies are students, which comprise 46%.

Others come from the entertainment industry and from the fields of hospitality, education and childcare.

Five percent are freelancers while the other five percent listed their occupation as “others.”

The platform noted that the surge of sugar babies in the country was a result of the lockdown imposed by the government amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Driven by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, more users are signing up to Sugarbook due to unemployment and gender pay gaps,” Darren Chan, founder and chief executive officer of Sugarbook, said in a release.

“Unlike sexual workers, sugar babies are not forced into labour. Sugar babies have the freedom of choice and they do not sell their bodies. They are single mothers, divorcees, housewives or students who are driven, successful and goal-empowered to date financially secured people,” he added.

Sugar dating or sugaring is set-up where a well-to-do man, usually older, supports or spends lavishly on a girlfriend, who is usually younger.

The man is called sugar daddy while the one being supported is the sugar baby.

Metro’s high unemployment rate 
The national unemployment rate of the country went down last July when strict community quarantine measures were lifted.

However, the figures went up in Metro Manila, the economic center of the country, where around 929,000 people became jobless.

The percentage of unemployment in NCR went from 12.3% in April to 15.8% in July.

Acting Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Kendrick Chua  attributed the unemployment to the lack of public transport available to the working class at that time.

He added that the Duterte administration sees the unemployment rate worsening between six to eight percent this year, before sliding down to four to five percent in 2022.

I think Stevewool will confirm that copper wire was invented by two Yorkshire men fighting over a penny. 

The "daddies" are setting the bar pretty high.  They are paying insane prices for the low hanging fruit that could be had for nothing.  Stupid old men and their money are soon parted.

I can barely afford a wife, much less a sugar baby at 50K a month.   Maybe this is why she keeps me poor but happy.

Maybe so?... but if all parties involved are getting what they want, what's the problem?

I see no problem as long as all parties involved are honest.

Ah  yes . .  the old "I can spend my money how I want" trick.

It is why free love now costs money, why waiters who are paid to bring your food expect a huge tip for doing so, and why restaurants bring bottled water that you pay for instead of free water from the water cooler.

I'm not likely to ever unstand that attitude.  I was brought up to try and get maximum value for dollars spent.  (Maybe not as tight as the Scottish but I like their reputation.)
