San Rafael, CA (June 4, 2013) -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415-479-3800

69% of women who become sugar babies had either no relationship or an unhappy relationship with their fathers, according to an online study of 3,428 sugar babies released in time for Father's Day, June 16.

A full 57% of the biological fathers of sugar babies were absent during their childhood. An additional 13% of the fathers of sugar babies had drug and/or alcohol problems. A shocking 9% of fathers of sugar babies were abusive. And some of the fathers of sugar babies were both abusive and also had drug and/or alcohol problems.

The survey showed some other surprising correlations between women's childhood relationships with their fathers and the tendency to want to date older men who are happy to support them and take care of them.

- 98% of sugar babies who had an absent father are looking for a sugar daddy for protection, financial support, and affection.
- 58% prefer to date men who are 20 years or more older than they are (the typical age gap between a father and a daughter).
- 89% of sugar babies who grew up with a father in the home say they did not get enough attention from him.
- 40% of them recognize similar characteristics between their sugar daddy and their father - which correlates with the ongoing need for the support and affection they did not get from their father.

"The survey clearly supports the theory that the sugar baby/sugar daddy phenomenon is closely correlated with the need for a father figure," says Rich Gosse, author of You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to America, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find ("This is a great book!" Oprah Winfrey). Mr. Gosse is available to the news media to discuss the survey by calling 415-479-3800.

The survey was conducted by SugarDaddyforMe.com, the world's largest sugar daddy dating website, with over 4 million members.
