But saying that it's "kind of weird for a woman to be in the mommy role" certainly isn't empowering to the strong, financially independent women for whom the site also offers services.And saying that there's no market for LGBT events is patently false — the queer community has proven time and again that if you create accessible queer spaces, queers will come (operative word: accessible).And Seeking seemed committed to reinforcing this idea, making clear that there is nothing inherently anti-feminist about becoming a Sugar Baby.Yes, it (generally) plays into the idea of women lending their "company" as they allow a man to financially support them.Of course, these tactics have their place in any power dynamic.But once you've explicitly discussed your needs, desires, and expectations, and established boundaries and consent.Seeking seems like a natural place to go if you're a Fi-Dom (financial Dom/me, controlling the finances of your submissive) or a pay pig (the submissive moneybags who gets off on relinquishing power over their financial assets to a Fi-Dom).And several site reps admitted that these folks exist on the site.
What anti-feminist, however, is how the Summit undermined its attempt to empower women by encouraging dishonesty and manipulation dressed up as ~flirtatious teasing~ and coquettishness.
One rep even ventured, "I would say most of the girls on the site don't really understand [the BDSM lifestyle] and don't know what that is," which is a borderline offensive underestimation of her clients.

Men do the same thing, but they get more opportunity because of their privilege.
Sugar Baby mentality is the same as alpha male mentality — you have ambition, you're dreaming for more.""I feel like such a lady boss," veteran Sugar Baby Chelsea Ridenour tells the crowd during one seminar.Devoted sex journalist that I am, when I heard that Seeking was hosting its first-ever Sugar Baby Summit, offering an afternoon of seminars for both beginners and masters of the Sugar lifestyle, I eagerly accepted the invitation to attend.
