New York, Oct 18 : Turns out being ‘sugar daddy’ is not just about sex and money, while occasionally it may live up to the stereotype of a wealthy, middle-aged man lavishing gifts and money on a younger woman in return for her companionship, there is more to it, a new study suggests.

Probably the most famous sugar daddy of all time is Hugh Hefner, the man who founded Playboy magazine. In recent times Sahil Khan, Dan Bilzerian have been in limelight.

Have their sugar relationships been based on companionship, intimacy or other forms of attention in exchange for personal benefit?

“Whenever I read an article about Sugar Daddies or Sugar Babies, I often saw the same sensationalistic slant: the women are desperate, starved college students engaging in prostitution,” said author Maren Scull, Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado in the US.

“As someone who studies deviance, I knew there were more important nuances to these relationships,” Scull said.

The study, published in the journal Sociological Perspectives, interviewed 48 current and former US sugar babies and identified seven types of “sugar” relationships such as sugar prostitution, compensated dating, compensated companionship, sugar dating, sugar friendships, sugar friendships with benefits and pragmatic love.

She explored the kind of activities the women were involved in, whether sex was involved and whether their lives were intertwined with their benefactors.

She found that 40 per cent of the women never had sex with their benefactors and the ones who did, often had genuine, authentic connections with the men.

She also found that most forms of sugaring were not a play-for-pay arrangement.

Scull labelled the first “sugar prostitution”, a form of sugaring sans emotion and purely the exchange of gifts for sex.

“Compensated dating”, popular in Asia, involves a monetary or material compensation for grabbing a coffee, a meal or attending a specific event together.

“Compensated companionship” involves wider scope of activities and often involve the woman becoming more intertwined in the man’s life.

Neither compensated dating nor compensated companionship involves anything sexual for most people.

“Sugar dating”, the most common form of sugaring, combines the intertwined life of companionship with sex. In this case, most women receive an allowance on a weekly, monthly or as-needed basis.

The sums could range from $200 to several thousands of dollars a month.

“Sugar friendships” are a mutually beneficial relationships with someone the women consider a friend.

Finally, Scull found that some of these relationships involved two people who hoped to end up together, with the woman taken care of for the rest of her life, in a category she named ‘pragmatic love’.

London, Feb 19 : Singer Billie Eilish broke down at the 2020 BRIT Awards after admitting social media trolls had made her “feel hated”.

The American singer got the award on Tuesday evening for Best International Female Artist from Spice Girl Mel C, after performing new James Bond theme “No Time To Die live” for the first time, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Billie told the star-studded audience at London’s O2 Arena: “I wanted to say something that I was thinking like two seconds ago… I’ve felt very hated recently.”

Struggling to compose herself, she added: “And when I was on the stage and I saw you guys smiling at me, it genuinely made me want to cry, and I want to cry right now, so thank you.”

The award comes after she discussed her recent decision to take a step back from social media, and specifically stop reading the comments on her Instagram posts.

She had told BBC Breakfast: “I stopped like two days ago. I’ve stopped reading comments fully. It was ruining my life. It’s weird. The cooler the things you get to do, the more people hate you.”

“Cancel culture is insane. The internet is a bunch of trolls and the problem is a lot of it is really funny. It’s anything for a joke. People say anything to make people laugh.”

“It’s insane that I have ever been reading comments. I should’ve stopped long ago but the problem is I’ve always wanted to stay in touch with my fans and people have ruined that for me and for them. That s**ks.”

“I still try to like fan posts. If I see fans anywhere I just want to talk to them. They’re people, they’re me. They’re like friends of mine, but the internet is ruining my life, so I turned it off,” she added.

The Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter and her producer and co-writer brother Finneas O’Connell had also revealed about the creative process behind the James Bond track. Finneas had explained that Bond star Daniel Craig is involved in every aspect of their movie franchise, including the theme song.

“He had to like it. If Daniel doesn’t like it then you don’t get the job,” he said while Billie added: “He has a big say in it. We learned that from this. He’s really involved. We haven’t met him but he’s got to like it before they move on.”

Published

New Delhi, Ageing is inevitable, irreversible and progressive. What’s more is that it brings along many changes to the bodily functions and affects most organs.

Nutrition has a great role to play in healthy ageing, says Dr Aastha, Head Clinical Nutrition, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Mohali. People face several health issues due to age and lack of adequate nutrition can add to the severity of the situation.

Therefore, proper nutrient intake is essential for people. As nutrient requirement of people changes with age, one must know what to eat and what not to, based on the condition of their body,” she said.

Few factors that might lead to reduced food intake after one hits 50 are: Loss of appetite, decreased sense of taste and/or smell, difficulty chewing and/or swallowing, loss of physical strength or mobility, chronic conditions and medication, mental and emotional factors, financial insecurity.

Some do’s and don’ts for people of age 50 years and above:

Adopt easy-to-digest, easy-to-absorb, small frequent meals.
Limit sugars, sweet beverages, undiluted juices, prefer fruits
Add plenty of fluids to your diet as they keep you hydrated and boost digestion
Replace refined cereals and grains with whole grain cereals and pulses
The fibre composition in diet should be moderate
Limit sedentary lifestyle – be physically active
Two-three servings of seasonal fruits should be included every day’s meal
Add onion, ginger, garlic, lemon, cumin seeds, carom seeds, fenugreek seeds, almonds, walnuts, coconut water in diet as these are good for muscular flexibility, prevent water retention and swelling and also contribute to maintain healthy blood pressure.

Busting a few myths about ageing and nutrition:

There is no reason for avoiding proteins in this age, as proteins are essential for tissue repair, avoiding pulses at night is an additional myth.
Salt needs to restricted only when one is hypertensive or has serum sodium levels on the higher side.
Cottage cheese does not have cholesterol if it is made from toned milk and is a very healthy option.
Saturated fats need not be eliminated totally from diet, unless one has a heart block or hypercholesterolemia.
Consumption of milk post dinner is just fine provided it’s not taken too late.
Reducing number of meals beyond 3 is way more harmful, so one must target 3 major meals and 2 minor meals to keep metabolism going.
Eating healthily, combined with regular physical activity, can help a person live a full active life.
