Customer Question

I was wondering is a Sugar Daddy relationship legal. I was reading that Sugar Daddy/Sugar baby relationships are legal as long as the relationship is not strictly sexual but has companionship along with it.
Money + Sex (alone)= illegal
Money +Sex + Companionship & Love= Legal
I was reading online that it is legal to have a relationship where you help a girl out financially and have sex as long as you do other things in addition like going movies and amusement parks and the relationship isn't strictly sexual.

Good afternoon. There are many different types of relationships. Many times, companionship is wanted by one party and in exchange, they buy or give gifts to the other person and help them out. There is nothing wrong with that. What is illegal and what the police are looking for are situations whereby there is a clear cut exchange of sex for money, whereby there is no intent to have any relationship and the parties do not even know or get to know each other. If someone want to buy and take care of someone else and spend time with them and things of that nature, it is hard for the courts/criminal justice system, define what goes on in a relationship. If someone was simply offering sex for money and that was it, then they could get arrested and charged. Otherwise, nobody can tell two consenting adults how to define their relationship.

Hello: my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you. A sugar relationship is legal if you maintain certain boundaries. Any money or goods exchange is strictly a gift for someone you have a relationship with. It is never in return for sexual acts of any kind. Never mention sexual acts in the same context as assistance being offered to the person you have a relationship with. Think of it as an arranged friendship that may or may not end up with sex. People go to bars and buy each other drinks all the time for perfect strangers and sometimes end up having sex. No srrings attached and no laws broken
