What Is The Sugar Dating Language?
Every niche has its own lingo and uses some abbreviations and acronyms that have no meaning for people outside of that world, in this case, out of the sugar bowl world.
While sugaring, you will for sure come across many different phrases and sugar baby terms you have never heard of before you joined some of these sugar dating sites, and that is completely fine.
People who pursue the sugar lifestyle via platforms like SeekingArrangement.com usually use the sugar slang in their headlines and “about me” pages too, so newbies will have to learn a few sugar baby tips for beginners if they really want to attract people from these websites and understand what is it that they are offering.
Even though you don’t have to know every single acronym in order to become successful in the sugar world and secure yourself a great long-term arrangement, there are some things you must know if you want to be able to understand potential partners on dating platforms.
You don’t even have to memorize things like this because they will become something common and natural to you once you really step your foot into this industry.
Here I will present you with a great sugar baby guide that will, fortunately, solve all of your doubts no matter what arrangement you are looking for, a serious relationship (like Tinder or eHarmony) or hookups (like BeNaughty or Ashley Madison).
What Does Sugar Baby Mean In Slang?
Many regular people who have never heard about the world of sugar dating have no idea who is a sugar baby and what being a sugar baby actually means.
A sugar baby is always a younger woman that engages in beneficial relationships with rich older men who can provide them with some type of financial support as long as they are in a relationship.
The sugar baby and sugar daddy terms have been spreading around social media for quite some time, but it seemed like no one knew how to explain them and present the sugar bowl the way it is in real life.
Some people mistake sugar babies for escorts or prostitutes, but that has nothing to do with reality because sugar relationships are not based on sex and no one will receive money in exchange for sexual favors.
If you see the SB acronym, then you can be sure someone is talking about a sugar baby.
There are many different phrases in the sugar baby slang for every single position in the sugar industry, so here are some basic ones you have to know.

However, there are a few more questions you might have before you actually decide to actively date sugar daddies or sugar babies.
1. What does SA mean in sugar daddy world?
This is something I get very often and it seems to confuse a large number of both sugar babies and sugar daddies.
SA is short for Seeking Arrangement, the most popular sugar dating platform on the market, and you will see this abbreviation very often.
2. What does POT stand for sugar daddies?
POT is short for a potential sugar daddy, and it always refers to people you consider engaging in a relationship or an arrangement with.
3. How do you say sugar daddy in Spanish?
I have no logical explanations why people are interested in this, probably because they think it sounds a lot sexier?
Papi dulce is the Spanish term for a sugar daddy.
