If you tried searching for answers, you are likely to have come across websites saying that they are all the same. Or you will come across one website trying to vilify one while promoting another.
The former of these websites are usually forums such as Quora and Reddit where many posters do not even know what they are talking about.
The latter of those websites are usually either escort agencies or sugar dating websites – either way, they can and are usually biased. One just needs to read this example here to see how biased that sugar dating website is.
In this article, let me share with you some of the real underlying differences between escorts and sugar babies. Take note that as legalities around the world may differ slightly, the answers in this post may not necessarily apply to your country. In this blog, we will only talk about social escorts and sugar babies in the context of Singapore.
Without further ado, let us go into topic proper.
Social escorts and sugar babies provide companionship in exchange for slightly different kinds of financial rewards
Both social escorts and sugar babies are basically paid companions. While escorts do it for the money, some sugar babies may want luxury gifts, meals or services in exchange for their companionship and time instead of outright money.
Escorts provide companionship, and in return, you are to compensate them by cold hard cash.
Sugar babies provide companionship, and terms are between you two to decide. While most sugar babies in Singapore want a monthly fixed allowance, some sugar babies in Singapore may simply want gifts instead.
Regardless, both groups of people provide their time and companionship in exchange for some kind of financial reward.
Social escorts do it more as a job, and sugar babies are half dating
If you want something that is more clean cut, then escorts are your ideal option. Basically, you pay them to meet you for that period of time. After that, they leave. They do it as their work.
There are many sugar babies in Singapore who operate exactly like escorts in this case. However, a rare few ask for unusual things such as requesting their sugar daddies to help them get an internship at a company that they wish to work at.
Social escorts in Singapore are almost exclusively females, while some sugar babies can be boys
Singapore escorts are exclusively females only. However, there are male sugar babies, although some of them are actually gay.
In Singapore, escorts are usually met through agencies, while sugar babies are met through dating platforms
While you can date a freelance escort girl in Singapore, most men opt to do so through reputable social escort agencies such as SG VIP Escorts or whatnot due to the higher level of legitimacy when it comes to the photographs and postings. There is some form of central control here.
Sugar babies in Singapore are met through dating platforms like Seeking Arrangement. These dating platforms function similar to that of OkCupid. You are to ‘fish’ for your own sugar baby.
You can verify details of a social escort beforehand if you use a Singapore agency, you will need to vet those details yourself when it comes to a sugar baby
As mentioned in the last point, because there is usually some form of central control or quality control if you use a legal and reputable female escort agency in Singapore, the details of the escorts are verified prior by the middleman – the agent.
When it comes to sugar babies, while some are legitimate, some are fake, and you will need to verify their details before meeting them yourself. Meeting a sugar baby is similar to that of meeting a freelance escort girl.
