I would like to preface this post by saying I have never been a sugar baby, but I did read a few articles to try and write something accurate for you. Someone I know has been a sugar baby through one of the apps, and I secretly chaperoned a few of her dates to make sure they weren't creepy. But she was never in a "sugar relationship," so I don't have any personal experience with that. I hope that if anyone sees this that is a sugar baby, you are not offended, as I tried to portray things neutrally and informatively. If I got something wrong, please let me know.

We are playing average girls that are trying to get by in New York. The twist that brings them together, of course, is that they are all Sugar Babies. This business supplements their life beyond what they can provide for in their 9-5 job (sometimes even jobs), pays off those finicky student loans, or funds their next around-the-world vacations. They all have different reasons for becoming and remaining a sugar baby. They may even end up leaving that life behind at some point. Either way, they are still regular young women just trying to live their lives, even if this choice of theirs can be seen as a bit unconventional.
From an article by The Sun: A sugar daddy is a generous older man who spends lavishly on his mistress, girlfriend or boyfriend. He's often a businessman, who considers himself too busy for conventional dating - and isn't short of a few bob. A sugar baby, meanwhile, is normally an attractive younger woman who can't afford her luxury lifestyle. The couple will usually establish a financial agreement early on - as well as their boundaries, such as whether or not they're considering a sexual relationship. Some sugar babies ask for a monthly allowance, while other get 'expenses' in the form of glam holidays and shopping sprees. While a growing number of sugar babies are university students, who turn to their 'daddy' to pay their fees. According to Seeking Arrangement, the average sugar daddy is 45 years old - and earns a salary of £176,000. The average sugar baby rakes in £2,300-a-month ($3,300), making a comfortable annual 'salary' of £20,930 ($29,600). It is so popular a Sugar Baby Summit was held on April 13 in New York, having been held in London last year.

Sugar babies sometimes get bad press, mainly because of the issue of intimacy and how it's tied up in the financial relationship. But the girls insist they're not the same as a prostitute or escort, and there is some truth in this. The key difference is that a sugar daddy relationship is a regular arrangement. Where an escort might be hired for the night, or as a one-off to attend a fancy event, a sugar baby would be meeting her daddy several times a month. While getting intimate is a common occurrence, it is not always what people choose to arrange. Although unconventional, the sugar baby set-up is a relationship of sorts - meaning the women are very different from a call girl, no matter how high end.

Honestly, it's so different for each relationship! Most of them have set standards: money per visit, monthly "allowance," guarantees of certain shopping or vacation experience. It can be whatever both parties feel works for them!
I don't know if you feel weird actually looking at these websites, but maybe just open it in a private browser or something lol. This is super helpful: https://blog.seeking.com/category/arrangement-101/
