New York, NY (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Sugar daddies spent big bucks during Halloween-week this year, according to a poll of 1,000 sugar daddies conducted by dating site Sugardaddie.com, which boasts more than 3.9 million members. The average sugar daddy shelled out $701.29 on dates with sugar babies during the week of Halloween this year, which is up from last years average sugar daddy spending during Halloween-week of $589.53.
A survey commissioned by the National Retail Federation found that the average person would spend $79.82 on Halloween this year, with total Halloween spending expected to reach $8.0 billion - a record high for the NRF survey. The average couple spent approximately $152.13 on Halloween this year, which is about one fifth of the amount spent by the average sugar daddy on Halloween this year, based on the Sugardaddie.com poll.
"Halloween is increasingly becoming a more adult Holiday, and it's a favorite time for sugar daddies and sugar babies to hit the town together. Sugars love dressing up, wearing masks, and yes, sometimes just showing off to the world," says Sugardaddie.com founder and CEO Steve Pasternack.
The above bar graph is based on poll results from 1,000 sugar daddy members surveyed in 2010, 2011 and 2012 regarding their spending forecasts for dates with sugar babies between October 16 and October 22 compared to the week of Halloween.
