What does Sugar Mama mean?

A man uses an older woman for her money, she’s a ‘Sugar Mama’

A Sugar Mama is typically an older woman who is financially generous to a younger man, often referred to as her boyfriend or husband. This generosity often stems from her wealth, making her an important financial support for her partner.

Generally, the age difference between the two can be significant, typically ranging from 10 to 20 years. This is a key characteristic of a Sugar Mama relationship.

Other colloquial terms for a Sugar Mama can include a cougar, jaguar, or puma. These terms also imply an older woman in a relationship with a younger man, however, the emphasis is more on the age difference rather than the financial aspect.

Even though the concept of a Sugar Mama is gaining popularity, it is still more common to find its male equivalent. Known as a Sugar Daddy, he is an older man who provides financial support to a younger woman, often referred to as his girlfriend or wife.
