In another survey of sugar daddies released in December 2012, the website broke down statistics by religion, finding the highest number of sugar daddies were Jewish (28 percent), 17 percent were evangelicals (17 percent), 14 percent were Catholic and 8 percent were Protestant. (Twelve percent of sugar daddies in the study were not affiliated with a specific religion, and 3 percent identified themselves as atheist or agnostic.

There are several other websites catering to connecting sugar daddies and sugar babies. In March, SugarDaddyforMe.com released results from a “random survey sampling” of sugar baby profile accounts seeking information about what sugar babies want from their sugar daddies. Here’s what the survey showed women want:
• A mature man to provide for them.

• Freedom from financial worries.
• Career help, mentoring, guidance.
• Opportunities to travel.
