I’d say the big difference in both from prostitution is in the number of johns. I’d assume a woman or man I guess that marries for money or someone that has a financial arrangement for sex is going to be more exclusive than a prostitute that is working somewhat on volume.
Another difference is the paradigm of marriage which is arguably more beneficial for women is the legally accepted contract. The sugar daddy thing while perhaps not illegal wouldn’t be able to be legally contracted for.
There really is little difference in many marriages and sugar daddy relationships other than the balance of power more favors the person with the money in the latter and traditionally this has been men though not always. For a financially well to do man the second is probably the better choice. Not as much risk as either marriage or random prostitutes.
Why the popcorn gif? Just because I am not a misogynist doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be clear to me and I would think most that traditional marriage as its set up benefits the woman more than the man.
On the whole I agree.
Aside form marriage for money serving to protect the males status in society, marriage for money also allows him to be have extra marital affairs - while the trophy wife ( nowadays hopefully ) just spends his money, and maybe ( hopefully again ) raises his offspring.
Sugar daddy and prostitution are more honest than marriage for money, in my opinion.
However, to a lot of women security is their primary desire. Where I think these women go wrong is that they marry for money and lie to themselves and their husbands that they married because they"looove" him.
It was for love, the love of the security his money was going to bring her.
But then they add insult to injury by demanding he connect with her emotionally when deep down he knows the connection is conditional on his having the money to secure ( her “love” ).
If I had married for money whilst remaining sexually loyal to the man, I would have just felt like a high class, monogamous prostitute.
The Alpha Whore, if you will.
