Ladies, Are You A Cougar?

According to Wikipedia the slang word "Cougar" is used to
describe an older woman who prefers to date men at least 5 years
their junior. Dr. Joyce Brothers notes that women don't reach
their sexual peak until their mid-thirties and sometimes older.
Therefore, they are perfectly matched with a younger man who has
more sexual vigor. Women today are taking care of themselves and
often looking for younger men who can keep up with them.

Calling a woman a Cougar was initially an insult that meant an
older woman who stalked and pounced on unsuspecting younger men
while hoping for a sexual liaison. Women called Cougar were
thought to be pathetic, lonely old women who preyed on immature
young men because no one else would have them. My, how times
have changed!

Now the word "Cougar" has become positive and means more of an
attitude than the age of the men you date so you might be a
Cougar without even knowing it. Take the Cougar Quiz below to
find out if you are a fun loving, adventurous and confident
Cougar!
