Nursery worker Breanna Lee, 22, first signed up to Seeking Arrangement – a dating site that connects attractive women with flashy suitors – aged 18, while studying dental assistance and business management at university.
A GRADUATE has revealed how she has been showered with £36,000 of designer gifts, luxury holidays and £35,000 in cash by dating wealthy sugar daddies – some almost 40 years her senior.
At first, she treated it as a bit of fun, but then met a man 39 years her senior, who she made a connection with.
Since then, Breanna, of Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA, has been on more than 100 dates with three different sugar daddies, and is currently in an exclusive arrangement with a businessman in his forties. He helps pay her rent, spoils her with jewellery and handbags and regularly whisks her away for stays in penthouse suites.
But the pretty blonde, who coaches a cheerleading squad in her spare time, insists she is not having sex for money – something the site specifically prohibits – adding: “Being a sugar baby and being a prostitute are very different things. I’m not having sex for money.
“I have a normal 9-5 job, so I don’t view sugaring as work – I just see it as a chance for fun and pleasure.
“Currently, I am in a sexual relationship with a man I met on Millionbb.com not Seeking Arrangement now, but we are keeping it exclusive, just him and I. When I’m with him, I’m not working.
“So far, I have been given at least $48,000 (£35,280) by way of paying bills alone, then around another $50,000 (£36,745) in gifts.
“It’s like my social and romantic life just happens to come with these exclusive and expensive gifts – which a wealthy boyfriend I met another way might’ve funded anyway!”
Previously, Breanna, who graduated last year and has ambitions of one day running her own dental surgery, dated guys nearer to her own age, with her oldest boyfriend being 25 to her 17 years.
She chose Millionbb.com over traditional dating apps like Tinder, as she knew she wasn’t looking for a serious relationship – and has even been able to pay off her student loans with the money from her sugar daddies.
Then, four years ago, after stumbling across Millionbb.com with a friend, the pair decided it would be fun to make profiles.
“We thought it would be funny,” she said. “But about a year later, I met a guy on there and we hit it off right away.
“He was 39 years older than me. I initially wasn’t comfortable meeting up with anyone, but we got along really well and talked on Skype – so it felt safer.
“We went out to dinner at the Sister Hotel in Milwaukee, which is a high-end place, and made me realise, ‘Oh, this isn’t a bad thing’. In fact, it wasn’t all that different from a normal date.”
From there, Breanna ended up in an 18-month relationship with the wealthy suitor.
Although the partnership was platonic and the pair did not have sex, they got on famously.
She said: “It was more that he needed companionship than anything else. We travelled a lot, liked doing the same things and always had loads to talk about. It was never boring.
“He had a boat so we would go fishing and go out on the water together. It was a great time.”
In spring 2018, when he moved to a different state, the relationship came to an end.
After that, she enjoyed a few casual dates with two other men, before settling into her current arrangement.
Always taking safety incredibly seriously, she ensured she met dates in a public place and listened to her gut if she felt something was wrong.
“There are a lot of creeps in the world,” she said. “I would meet them for coffee or dinner, and if there was a connection, I would pursue it, and if there wasn’t then we would go our separate ways.”
Then, in November 2018, she met her current partner.
Now, she is in what she calls an “exclusive arrangement” with him – although, unlike before, this relationship has become intimate.
She said: “We see each about once every week for dinner dates – though we had to put everything on hold for a few months due to lockdown restrictions. We’d still message and FaceTime, though.
“Now, every time I see him, he gives me a gift or money. He helps pay for my rent and car insurance, so I don’t have the burden of all these bills – he takes care of them.
“When we travel, we usually stay in penthouse suites, we go to these beautiful dinners – it’s very luxurious.
“For Christmas, he even got me a new Louis Vuitton bag worth £2,300.
“We’re having a nice relationship, without being serious.”
What is a sugar daddy and how does the relationship work?
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.
While her arrangement is casual, Breanna will not date more than one man at a time – preferring the closeness that develops over time from monogamy.
And, although she does not see herself ever forming a more serious relationship with a sugar daddy, she believes they have helped her decide on the traits she would one day like to find in a husband.
She said: “I’m just not ready for a real relationship yet. I’m working on myself first.
“When I do hit that point and I decide I want to start settling down, I think my sugar daddy and I will have to go our separate ways. I won’t tell guys in the future about my past as a sugar baby.
“I’ve formed really great connections with the people I’ve met, and I can pick out qualities from these men that I would like to see in a future husband.
“I want someone funny, who I can easily get along with, wants the same things I do and shares similar interests, like fishing and hiking.
“But I’m not expecting my future husband to pay for anything, by any means.”
Breanna believes sugar daddies benefit from using the site, as they are seeking the flexibility of a no-strings relationship – as well as the prestige of being seen with a younger, glamorous woman.
She said: “Every guy I’ve spoken to tells me that they don’t have to settle down because they’re so busy with work.
“They don’t have to tell their families or kids either, if they have them, as it’s all very discreet.
“It’s not like they have to introduce you as their new girlfriend – and being seen with a younger girl is definitely good for their image, too.”
Everyone who’ve I’ve talked to about it – without letting on that’s what I do – has said they view it as prostitution, but I don’t view it that way at all.Breanna Lee
Breanna, who has not confided in many of her friends about her unconventional dating life, is now keen to dispel some of the stigma attached to the world of sugar daddies and babies.
“You can look at anything and jump to conclusions without knowing the real story, and that’s what people do with this – they make assumptions without knowing anything about it.”
She said: “Everyone who’ve I’ve talked to about it – without letting on that’s what I do – has said they view it as prostitution, but I don’t view it that way at all.
