Most of the girls on SA are escorts. If you are paying per meeting and by the hour or so, then she is just an escort.
What e.kaye said isn't too uncommon.
At least here in NYC, the traditional "sugar" relationship isn't some girl with a list of clientele. They aren't meeting on websites, or paying by the hour. It i also usually not the girl's sole source of income.
and lol at $2k per month. I worked with a girl who had a sales job. She was making north of $250k, and had a sugar arrangement. He paid for her Mercedes G class truck, her two bedroom apartment in a luxury building on leonard st, and the parking for her truck. It was an interesting arrangement, he also helped her along with her career, and wished her well when she got married. She always referred to him as her mentor, and her referred to himself as a "benefactor".
Other guys I know that have traditional sugar type arrangements now are probably shelling out $10k min per month, not including the dinners and shows and bottles. The girls all work or are in some sort of grad program, aren't bombshells or look like instagram models.
None of them met on a website, everything was through friend's referals and rfiends of friends etc....
