Each season we tackle a new story. The Sugar Baby Confessionals is a true story unfolding over two years. What if your best friend – your best, married friend – embraced the sugar baby lifestyle – not by necessity, but by choice? Sara-Mae Tuson’s BFF, Ruby, did just that. Sexy? Scary? Judge for yourself. We follow two years of Ruby's life, so it's important to listen from Episode 1. In the Sugar Baby Confessionals, the girl talk gets candid as Sara-Mae and Ruby talk about love, sex and life as a Sugar Baby.
