What Does PPM Stand For? Pay Per Meet System Explained
What is PPM stand for? Simply put, PPM stands for pay per meet. However, it is not what it looks like — in sugar dating, it has nothing to do with sex work. So, let’s take a closer look at this phenomenon, compare it to the allowance and find out who and why may choose PPM and why some daddies and babies avoid it.
Definition of PPM – dating, payments, and dangers explained
As you probably know, sugar dating is about sponsorship. Sugar daddy is a sponsor, and sugar baby is the one who receives financial support. There are different forms of this financial support — in particular, some daddies prefer to pay particular amounts, and some give only gifts and pay for vacations and dates. Those who prefer to give money instead of things also fall under the two categories — those who pay per meeting, i.e., do a PPM, and those who pay allowance, for example, send a sugar baby a particular amount every month.
Of course, if it’s PPM, the amount is discussed, usually before the meeting. Note that sugar babies should be very careful — some “daddies” who seem to agree to pay for a date may ask for their personal information, which is a red sign. After all, like experienced babies say, “cash is a king”.
PPM arrangement: is it legal?
Generally speaking, it depends. The most important thing you should know about sugar dating is that it is not about sex, or not only about sex. It’s about commitment, relationship, and sex if both partners want this and are ready for this.
Hence, if you date someone, you can receive payments per meeting, even if sex is involved because this sex is not the “main service” in this case.
However, wherein sugar daddy gives money to sugar baby on per meeting basis, instead of monthly basis, may fall under the definition of prostitution where both parties would be guilty if sex is the main goal and the main service.
Let’s say that a “sugar baby” meets a “sugar daddy” on the site and they discuss the conditions. A “daddy” says that he wants to have sex with her and do PPM on the first date and is ready to pay $500. If a sugar baby agrees, in this case, she is not an SB — she is a sex worker, so yes, they both will be considered guilty. If they discuss the same amount, but it is just a date, they won’t have any problem.
How much PPM for sugar relationship?
What about the amounts men pay per meet? Sugar daddy — how much is he likely to spend? It depends on a sugar baby. Most ladies may ask $200-$300 for a date, but there are also women who ask for $500-$600 per meeting, and they are considered the highest-paid SBs.
Why you should and shouldn’t do a pay per meeting?
Here are the reasons why PPM is still quite popular:
- It’s safer for babies who don’t want to get scammed by Salt daddies
- It’s better for SBs who need money now
- It’s better for daddies who want to meet a SB not that often
- It’s better for SDs who date a few sugar babies at the same time, and don’t want to pay a monthly allowance to all of them
- Relationships can be stopped at any time without money loss
And here is why some sugar babies and sugar daddies prefer not to do PPM:
- It’s closer to sex work
- It may be too expensive if you meet often
- Daddies pay for the first date, too, and just lose money if they don’t like a sugar baby
As you can see, PPM has both pros and cons, and choosing it may be an initiative of a sugar daddy or a sugar baby. Pay per meeting may be beneficial for both.
To sum up, it’s always up to a sugar daddy and a sugar baby. That’s what sugar dating is about: you discuss the terms and choose the scenario that will work for both of you. PPM is not illegal, unless it’s only about sex, and is a pretty common way to “spoil” a sugar baby and may be pretty good for sugar daddies who have many sugar babies and/or meet their SB often.
