Not entirely groundbreaking, this survey is more a reflection of both the respondents and the era than anything else. Today’s sugar daddy is no longer a 65-year-old retired millionaire; the modern American sugar daddy is 39 years old.

EarnTheNecklace.com, a revealing and engaging web site with articles written by women who exchange their stories and confessions about being in a relationship with a much older man, is releasing its expert opinion on a recent survey that purports to have found a surprising link showing sugar daddies spend an average of five hours per week playing video games.
According to a recent survey published by online dating site SeekingArrangements.com, 54% of men who take home at least $100,000 per year also play video games for several hours each week. Specifically, those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 played for an average of 5.2 hours per week, while men who make $300,000 to $400,000 logged 10.3 hours per week. Interestingly, the most financially successful men that do play video games, those making $500,000+ a year, spend less than an hour a week playing video games.

“Not entirely groundbreaking, this survey is more a reflection of both the respondents and the era than anything else. Today’s sugar daddy is no longer a 65-year-old retired millionaire; the modern American sugar daddy is 39 years old. In Canada, he’s even younger at 38 years old,” says Riya Beaumont, EarnTheNecklace.com’s content editor. “The PlayStation, for example, was first launched in North America in 1995—when future North American sugar daddies were barely out of their teens—so it’s not a surprise to discover they still like to play video games.”
“On top of that, the site that did the survey is dedicated to sugar daddies finding sugar babies, so it’s not surprising that the respondents claim to make six figures,” she adds. “I’m fairly certain that there are a number of cash-strapped men out there who play video games just as frequently.”
The dating site also observed that gaming is not a detriment to success; rather, it is an outlet. In fact, it found that the difference between a successful man and an unsuccessful gamer is moderation. (Source: Ibid)
“Looking at these numbers, one could argue this survey shows that some men who play video games five hours to 10 hours a week are ignoring their partners for five to 10 hours per week,” Beaumont observes. “And this emotional and physical disconnect might explain why they are on a sugar daddy site looking for non-video game stimulation.”
“On top of that, if correlation is causation, as this survey suggests, it would be interesting to see how much time wealthy women spend each week fine-tuning their hand-eye coordination with game consoles. While playing video games is not a detriment to success, it’s pretty tough to argue that it’s a catalyst,” Beaumont concludes. “It would also be interesting to see what their sugar babies think of their dedication to video games after a few months.”
