I live in Toronto and am new to being a sugar baby (trying to get through school while juggling precarious jobs). According to the stats, the average a sugar baby makes is between $3,000.00 - $5,000.00 a month. How much should a sugar baby in Toronto charge on a per meet basis? If a man can only see you twice a month, is $500.00 too much to ask for for a per meet basis?

Prices are based on the customer's BATNA (Google it).
This is why it's very important to start every negotiation by first determining what the guy's expectations are. Is he the guy who is interested in developing some kind of relationship with you and is looking for more than just sex? Well, you don't want those guys (we'll talk about why below). Is he the desperate kind who has some money and is looking for a young woman that's slightly attractive and willing to give him the time of day in exchange for money? These are your idea customers (we'll discuss why).
If the guy is somewhat attractive with resources, then he has no problem meeting and having sex with women. So, "why" would he be interested in a sugar baby? Who knows, but it's your job to find out. You want to know if you can provide him with something that he can't otherwise find easily (and cheaper) in the market. If he's married and looking to discreetly cheat on his wife, you have value to add. If he's looking to give the appearance to clients that he's dating younger attractive women on the side, you have value to add. If all he's looking for is sex, you're not really earning any kind of premium.. every dollar you get is a dollar you earn (last resort unless you REALLY need the money).
You're looking to charge what economists call "economic rent." So, your idea guy is unfortunately someone that may not be that flattering in the looks department, may not really be that masculine or sexy as a man, but he pays the bills. Hey, that's okay. He knows it, you know it, he's not judging you and you're not judging him. What is he looking for? Access to sex with a young and attractive woman that's not a prostitute for hire by the public at large. Basically, a rent-a-girlfriend he can pick up and out of the toy box whenever he's feeling like it, and put back in when he's done playing.
You can't charge based on what needs of YOURS are NOT BEING FULFILLED. That's not how this works. You charge based on his NEXT BEST ALTERNATIVE.1

I have no experience whatsoever. But I don't think talking to him about money right away would be a good idea, rather see how much he is willing to give. Also it's not just "cash and go", he'll most likely expect you to go to fancy restaurant with him, spend a night in a hotel, and and and.. so basically also give you a taste of what it's like to be rich besides the cash.
It's not as easy as you think it is.
