Cougar Up!

Trying to Cougar Up a Friend of Mine.

I don't know if she's game, I don't know if he is...but I think the idea of a mature woman, younger man has a lot of appeal. Let's face it, women reach their sexual peak in their thirties, forties, and even reach theirs in their twenties. So why not?

This notion that men get better with age...women just get old...has always bothered me. Why the double-standard? Why is it socially acceptable for an older man to enter a room with a beautiful young woman on his arm, when the reverse has been considered scandalous?

We women no longer accept the coming of age with grace and dignity, effectively shutting ourselves into...more or less...a closet. I find women in their thirties, forties, fifties and even sixties to be the most beautiful - as we age, we become more self-aware, more comfortable in our own skin and more accepting of our flaws. We embrace self-expression and we're far less tolerant of petty bull-shit. We mean what we say and we say what we mean.

If I could switch skin and become a young man for a day - say...a young man with a functioning brain...I would want to be with a confident woman, a woman who knows herself, knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. A woman who has grown beyond game playing and artifice. Yup...I'd like that.

My cousin is with a man eight years her junior (she and I are the same exact age) and she swears the sex is great. A good friend in her late forties just moved from her twenty-something yoga instructor to a thirty-something international businessman/jet setter. She bought some special lingerie to wear for him last time she was in town - wow, she was glowing!

Go for it ladies, Cougar up!
And a plug - Remember that on next Valentine's Day, The Cougar Book will be released by Logical-Lust and you can read my story, You Might Just Get It!


  1. I'm all for the older woman/younger man. Why shouldn't women enjoy what the younger men have to offer? ;-)

  2. We ladies of 'a certain age' are calmer, more self assured, and we tend to have a low tolerance for bullshit. I think women these days are going for what they want and it's more about personality and 'clicking' than about age.

  3. Heh. Go ahead and cougar her. See what happens.
