The Ideal Mistress

On my trip, I met a young woman from Wisconsin who indicated that she had a sugar baby relationship with an older man.  Undoubtedly, she was trying to shock the Southern girl (me) she was talking to.  And it worked.  But it caused me to wonder what do older men prefer in a mistress?  The site Seeking Arrangements recently polled 486,000 men and came up with these characteristics preferred in someone the older men preferred in their arrangements:

Age: 26 to 31 years old 
Hair color: Blonde (61% of these "gentlemen" prefer blondes.)  
Eye color: Green  (41%)
Body type: Athletic (33%) 
Breast size: 32D  (You got to be kidding!)
Ethnicity: Caucasian (32%), Asian (30%) 
Occupation: Student pursuing a Bachelor's Degree or higher (98%)
Relationship status: Single 
Smoking habits: Non-smoker  
Drinking habits: Social drinker  
Other: Does yoga (Namaste; must look cute in the downward dog pose.)

Type of allowance expected: Moderate Allowance (up to £3,200 a month; whatever that translates into dollars.)

Keywords: yoga, energetic, sensual, open minded 

About two out of five of the older men in these arrangements are married!

It dawned on me that I make eight of the criteria; but no soap.  

But I have some general questions, good people.

1.  Why not women younger than 26?  Is it because their interests, conversation, and sexual prowess makes for them being less satisfactory mistresses?  After all, Madame Pompadour was in her 40's during her heyday.

2.  How long does the typical "arrangement" last?

3.  Have any studies been done on consumer satisfaction?

4.  Do older men and their former partners occasionally meet for auld lang syne sake? 

5.  What do older women, younger women, older men, and younger men think about the older men who seek such "arrangements"? 

6.  Is any one grossed out by the relationship being adulterous in two cases out of five?

7.  What other traits does the mature man 'seeking arrangements' desire in the younger woman?  Such things like sophisticated bearing, tastes in music, art, literature, depth of knowledge?  Or are they mainly interested in arm candy?

8.  Is "sugar daddy" simply a euphemism for "john"?

9.  Finally, are the two sometimes seen in public spaces, like in restaurants, at the opera, or at conventions?

Sorry for my bluntness with these questions!  I'm somewhat retro in some of my outlooks.

The practice is somewhat creepy, but to each his/her own.

My question is on the other side of the issue....what 26 year old woman would want this kind of arrangement with an older guy? And what are her criteria? And also, why would you tell a fellow traveler of your means of support?

£3,200 is almost exactly $5000. I would guess that women over 26 are more sexually proficient and enjoy it more that younger women. Requiring the woman to be intelligent seems to be a new feature of a competitive marketplace where women in higher education are looking for sugar daddies.

A brazenly mercenary Chinese harlot had a blog called "My Chinese Dimples" which discussed the best way of find rich sugar daddies. Unfortunately she deleted the blog, possibly because I left a humorous comment on one of her posts.

3200 British Pound equals 5005.04 US Dollar. Wow!

My thought is that your odd encounter felt very clever at making a substantial income unlike most people her age Women do talk; and she undoubtedly liked to be a shocker. For some, sex is no big thing, and they see it as a way to get ahead.

Thanks for the money exchange info, Cloudia and Gorilla Bananas.

Linda Kay: A very mercenary one, no doubt. Or one heavily in denial. She was well-oiled while loafing around the hot tub. I wonder how many sugar daddies she had.

Elvis: Creepy is a good description.

Banana Oil, I can accept that idea.

It sounds like prostitution in so many words.

i know that that sort of 'arrangement' would never be right for me. i knew a young woman years ago that was 'available' for a well-to-do older, heavy-set doctor. she was disgusted by him but needed her bills paid and had a certain lifestyle she wanted to keep up to. yuck.

You ask excellent questions. Perhaps there is a doctoral dissertation in it for someone. For equal rights, there should be sugar mommas looking for young men. There probably are!

Move the decimal point to the left 2 places and I'm in.

I wonder if she was trying to pull your leg, Angel.

Reading the "requirements" makes me think that this would be an attractive, young girl who could do SO MUCH BETTER. Who is really satisfied in this relationship - and, dear Lord, why???

Anything I could say would probably get me in trouble, so I'm going to be quiet.

Interesting, to read all that.

It's good to read the cold facts about it.
