The nature of the gay sugaring lifestyle combined with the negative perception that society has of sugaring and the number of scammers in the industry makes many gay sugar babies tread carefully when it comes to what they reveal about their personal identities.
As personal security is always a priority we’ve come up with a list of common types of information that may be requested during a gay sugar relationship and our tips on how to best maintain your privacy.
SHOULD I USE MY REAL NAME TO BE A SUGAR BABY?
We think it’s OK with giving this one out in some cases…well at least part of it.
We tend to use our middle name but if you have a generic first name this may also work, otherwise become comfortable with using a fake name.
Here are some good sugar profile tips about privacy.
DO I NEED TO GIVE MY SUGAR DADDY MY ADDRESS?
During the start of a gay sugar relationship – it’s particularly important to keep this one private.
At this point, the boundaries aren’t set and you don’t know the nature of your sugar daddy.
He could be super controlling or even worse he could use your address to spy or stalk you.
Before a new gay sugar date, identify a building near you, maybe a few streets away that will allow you to walk-in, so if your gay sugar daddy insists on dropping you off, you’re able to be dropped there.
SHOULD I GIVE MY SUGAR DADDY MY PASSPORT NUMBER?
Although there is no need for your gay sugar daddy to have your passport number this one is a little tricky – let’s say you’re going on a trip and he is booking your tickets.
In this case, just tell them to send you over the money and you’ll book your own tickets and explain you don’t want him doing extra work on your behalf.
Either way, you only want to share this with someone that you have an established relationship with.
DO I NEED TO GIVE MY SUGAR DADDY MY BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER?
Generally, we feel this is a big no as too much fraud can be done with scammers.
The question that arises is what are some alternative methods to get your sugar allowance in?
Cash is always a great option and the other one we like is online payment solutions like Paypal. Venmo and for those gay sugar babies who don’t want a paper trail consider the likes of gift cards or pre-paid credit cards.
SHOULD I SHARE WHAT SCHOOL I GO TO ON MY SUGAR PROFILE?
This one is really circumstance dependent – remember it’s not a job interview so if you don’t feel comfortable giving it out just give out the city where you attended college or university.
If you went to a big university where you were a needle in a haystack – it might not be a big deal but again it’s really dependent on what other information (your real name etc) your gay sugar daddy already knows.
DO I TELL MY SUGAR DADDY WHERE I WORK?
Generally, we would avoid giving this one out especially at the beginning of a gay sugar relationship.
No one wants an unexpected guest dropping by at his place of employment especially someone who may not be in an emotionally stable state of mind.
If asked by your gay sugar daddy, what you do for work, keep it simple and tell them what field you’re in without naming the company.
MY SUGAR DADDY WANT MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, DO I NEED TO GIVE IT TO HIM?
Again be careful about giving out your Social Security number out.
It’s important to think about in what situation would a gay sugar daddy actually need your social security number?
If a gay sugar daddy is asking you for this one be careful and realize this is a Pandora’s Box, this number can be used to get a number of other types of other personal information.
There is never any need to give out your Social Security of this information.
If it seems like a gay sugar daddy is trying to get their hands on this chances are they might be a scammer.
