Men with economic stability, wealthy, mature, successful in their professional lives and, above all, open to establishing a romantic relationship with women much younger than them; These are the famous “sugar daddies” who also use their “charms” and culture to conquer girls who could well be their daughters or even their granddaughters.
One of the greatest representatives of the “sugar daddies” is Hue Hefner; the multi-millionaire publisher and founder of a men’s magazine who perfectly exemplifies the older man who dates younger women on a regular basis or sporadically, who are known as “sugar babies.”
We often wonder why this type of relationship occurs, to which various specialists point out that it is because the girl is looking for protection, love and understanding that she generally finds in a mature man and not in a boy of her own. age that is not yet mature enough or interested in committing.
The pedagogue Claudia Hernández in an interview for yoinfluyo.com points out that this type of relationship occurs when the man seeks to feel more attractive, vital and young, so entering into a love relationship with a younger girl will help him achieve this. Although it is more common in older women, some older men decide to have a younger partner because they did not enjoy their youth.

As for women, the specialist points out that they relate to an older man because of the maturity that he may have in addition to the power, economic position or money that he can offer them, things that a couple their age can hardly offer them.
She also points out that some of these girls were able to develop the well-known Electra Complex in childhood, a stage in which the little girl can feel attraction to her father and when she grows up she decides to “replace” that figure by looking for an older man who resemble.
The pedagogue points out that the greatest benefit but also the greatest disadvantage is the maturity of the relationship since the older man can provide greater emotional stability to the young woman, but she will skip a stage of her youth, so as she grows older she will want to go out with men younger than her to experience what she didn’t do in her youth.
This type of relationship is so fashionable that there are now websites such as “sugar daddy seek” which aims to set up “dating for rich old men who love young women”. The dynamic is that the man creates a profile with the monthly amount that he can offer the girls. Figures range from $1,000 to $20,000. Often the money is used by “sugar babies” to pay for their university studies.
Some examples of relationships between “sugar daddies” and “sugar babies” are Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, Salma Hayek and Francois Henri Pinault, Tony Randall and Heather Harlan, Tony Bennett and Susan Crow, Fred Thompson and Jeri Kehn as well as Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.
