The Majority Of ‘Sugar Babies’ Would Rather Be ‘Kept’ By Barack Obama Than Mitt Romney

Yesterday, Jennifer made sure none of us would ever be jealous of 1% wives again by making a very convincing argument that what Ann Romney ”does” is nothing but a particularly lucrative, longterm, and emotionally draining kind of sex work. (Let’s call it “The Wife Experience.”) This struck me as fairly unappealing, but what do actual sex workers think of the arrangement? Is humanoid piggy bank Mitt Romney an appealing person to work for, or would they prefer someone…younger? Someone cooler? Someone who believes in reproductive rights, perhaps?

Well, let’s look at the statistics. Sugar daddy “dating” site SeekingArrangement.com recently polled its users on this very question (Romney vs. Obama), and Barack Obama won in a landslide, with 34% of users saying they’d like to get with him and only 12% going for Romney. According to CEO Brandon Wade, “most women say they chose Obama because he is more trustworthy, charismatic and sexy,” as well as being “funny” and “known to be a good dancer.” Many described Romney, on the other hand, as “vanilla.”

These results might be accounted for by the fact that Obama consistently beats Romney among female sex workers (duh), but then again, if sugar babies refused to have sex with Republicans, their business would probably suffer a great deal. Maybe they just like the idea of dating the president. Or someone with a personality.

I am, however, heartened by the fact that a whopping 43% responded “neither,” because it shows that sugar babies (and sex workers in general) are more selective than a lot of people think. Just because you’re being compensated for your “time” doesn’t mean you lack all standards.

    Just on the basis of their respective looks and personalities I wouldn’t want to be kept by either Obama or Romney. That being said, I would TOTALLY jump at the chance to be kept by either of them so I could create a huge scandal just in time for the election. That is how much I hate both candidates.

      I was just seized by a vision of potential DNC/RNC chairpeople being vetted, and getting asked: What do you do if you find out the party has just murdered a woman who claims to be the mistress of our presidential candidate? Keep in mind that it looks like an accident, and the election is only days away.

    Are these women one-off prostitutes or potential mistresses? I feel like if it were just a set-rate one night, I’d pick the candidate I liked better, but if I were going to be set up as a “kept woman,” I would pick Romney because he is massively rich, whereas Obama is only medium-rich and probably can’t afford to support a sugar baby in the kind of lifestyle I would want if I were going to settle for being a kept woman.

      I like how much thought you put into your reply. I completely agree based on your logical and rational argument.
