A Cougar Speaks On It! Top 10 Myths About Older Women Dating Younger Men

From YourTango

I’m a card-carrying cougar. I have been a consistent member of the “Cougar Club” since my husband passed away. For the past 4 ½ years, I’ve been dating a man 15 years my junior. In addition to my personal experience, I host an Internet talk show called LoveEncore. It’s about dating, sex and relationships the second time around. I’ve interviewed guests and experts about the subject of older women dating younger men, and noticed that these episodes received more views than any other by a landslide. I’ve received a plethora of questions and comments from all parts of the world on this hot topic. I’d like to de-bunk cougar myths and give the facts as to what dating a younger man is really like.

The “Urban Dictionary” states: “Cougars are gaining in popularity—particularly the true hotties—as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her Isht together.” I think of a cougar as a confident, independent, young-spirited woman who happens to prefer the company of younger men.

Myth #1: A cougar is the hunter who preys on the innocent younger man.

Fact: Who hunts whom? Some guys are naturally drawn to older women like any other physical “type,” such as preferring blondes to brunettes. I’ve discovered that somewhere along the way those attracted to cougars have had a prior positive experience with one. A cougar exudes self-confidence, which makes her a highly desirable conquest to a younger man. Often it’s the younger man who approaches the older woman in hopes of a purely sexual no-strings-attached relationship. Contrary to popular belief, the older woman isn’t the predator—in fact, it’s the quite opposite.

The Cougar Economy

(Businessweek) — In the decade since Valerie Gibson published Cougar: A Guide for Older Women Dating Younger Men, the very notion of older women dating younger men has gained acceptance in popular culture, in part, due to the emergence of high-profile women—such as Demi Moore, Katie Couric, and the fictional character Samantha Jones on Sex and the City—who have no qualms about dating younger partners. “There is a new archetype that’s emerging,” says Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International. “There have always been free-thinking, vital women over the age of 40. The difference today is our numbers have reached a critical mass.” Christine Lehtonen, a principal at Asterix Group, a marketing and advertising agency in San Francisco, says there are more women in the U.S. aged 51 than any other single age. “Can you imagine what could happen,” she says, “if all these women were marketed to?”  Increasingly, they are. A transcontinental economy is developing around conventions, dating sites, tourism, and other cougar-themed business ventures.
