Cougar: (informal) an older woman who seeks sexual relationships with much younger men
What is an older woman?
The word “older” is so—well, old.
It doesn’t mean anything.
I will tell you right now what makes a woman attractive. It is not because she has reached her fortieth birthday and still looks like she’s twenty-three. No—the reasons “cougars,” as they fancifully are called, are attractive to younger men are as follow:
- They’ve had enough birthdays that they’re no longer fretting over their biological clock—to drop a kid or two before they leave the planet.
- They’ve been disappointed enough by men that they have a much better idea of what they want.
- They have found their clitoris and are not asking you to go on a quest to locate it.
- That means they are able to control their own orgasm without demanding you do something supernatural to acquire it.
- They can talk. (And I’m not speaking of chattering. The journey has given them some experiences to share.)
- They smell mature. They smell like women instead of honey and flowers. It’s very alluring
- And if they are smart, they’ve learned not to bullshit men or pump up their egos, creating monsters.
I’m not so sure I like the term “cougars.” I think it’s rather degrading.
But I think it’s brilliant to distinguish what makes a woman valuable as time passes and realize that she doesn’t have nearly as much to prove—nor as much to complain about.
