|Throughout history, wealthy
and powerful men like monarchs, sheiks and Popes have secretly kept women
as beautiful, sultry additions to their courts, harems and vows of chastity.
Men naturally seek female companionship – even if they already have it
in spades - and having a mistress is one way to fulfill the need for nurturing,
tenderness and sex. While Louis XV may have found his Madame Pompadour
in his royal court, today’s influential men can use discreet online dating
sites to find a mistress. Sites like MutualArrangements.com give men the
choice of hundreds of beautiful, buxom babes to keep them company while
away from their wives.
A mistress is a woman that a man sees on the side to fulfill his
sexual needs. When keeping a woman, a man usually gives his mistress expensive
gifts or large sums of money to keep her happy and quiet, ensuring that
the discreet nature of their relationship is maintained. He also pays for
her apartment or condo so she’ll be available for secret rendezvous on
his schedule in a place he knows is safe from prying eyes. While he provides
for her monetary needs and her living arrangement, she is no concubine;
a man has no legally binding contracts with her. Nor is she a prostitute;
she reaps the benefits of his financial support but there is no direct
payment for her intimate company. Instead, she is a Sugar Baby: a gorgeous
girl who receives gifts from a generous
man. In these cases, however, this man is typically married or in a
loving relationship with another woman.
After all, even men who are in loving relationships might be lacking
sexual excitement. After many years together, a married couple loses the
butterflies that sparked the passion in their love. A mistress
can provide for the needs of a man lacking a sexual spark with his wife.
Besides, men are easily impressed by beauty. When liposuction doesn’t bring
back his wife’s youth, the attractive influence of a glamorous girl makes
powerful men seek discreet relationships.
Keeping a mistress is not purely for physical needs, either. A mature
man likes to be seen with a hot
younger woman in order to gain status in public. If a paramour’s relationship
is not secretive, a man will be looked upon by his colleagues and society
as being even more powerful than his money suggests. Like the harems of
the old world, a man who provides for more than one woman is a show of
status and power.
