Are all older women cougars want to be, or is that b.s.?

  When I Google the words "older women" all I find is sex, and cougars. Actually the very first thing that comes up is about older women wanting to date younger men. Gees how far is that from our reality! Most older women have other things on their mind like how to keep their family together without them killing each other, stretching their oh so thin paycheck for the long week. These things are exhausting!...more

Being Comfortable Naked: The Road to Your First Boudoir Photo Shoot

Turning forty has awakened my senses and dared me to try things I might never have otherwise dabbled in. I’ve pole-danced and will again, three more times (at least). I’ve rock climbed, though, I had rock climbed in my thirties so I’m not sure if that actually counts. I’m running my first 5K (up to 3.4 miles now) and hope to run many more after that. I’m writing this blog with the intention of turning it into a book for those who, like me, will struggle with turning the “F” word....more

HOW TO HANDLE CRITICISM AND JUDGEMENT

If you're an older woman involved with a significantly younger man expect to be judged, talked about, criticized and otherwise informed - sometimes subtly, sometimes overtly - that some people don't like or approve of how you're living your life.  Some people will feel obliged, in fact entitled, to sit in judgement of your choice and to let you know what they think.  "Oh, are you his mother?" is the recognized passive/aggressive form of letting you know you must be a fool for making this choice....more

POWER, EQUALITY AND COUGAR POLITICS

 During a recent interview I was asked if there was a difference between older women/younger men relationships and their opposite, relationships between older men and significantly younger women.  For most people the obvious answer has to do with sex, or better sex, or let's get real, out-of-the-box mind boggling great sex (especially if the man is a lot younger)....more

WINNERS AND LOSERS... AND COUGARS

My friend Theresa, 44 years old, divorced, no children, smart, ambitious, hardworking, and having just spent a long weekend visiting her mother (who is my age, in her 60's) was frustrated and angry.  We were driving up to Palm Beach looking forward to a day of relaxation, fun, a nice lunch, maybe some shopping, but Theresa was agitated....more

Queen of Comedy Moms Mabley: Cougar on Stage, Lion in Life

The recent appearance of Terry McMillan and her ex Jonathan on the Oprah Show, as well as the break-up of the marriage of Courteney Cox and David Arquette, got me remembering an original "cougar" -- at least in her comedy routine: Jackie “Moms” Mabley (1894-1975). ...more
I remember watching Moms and loving her dearly. We are in desperate need of women like her in ...more
