“Extreme Cougar Wives” … TLC Is Going There

Nobody does extreme quite like TLC. They are leaving behind toilet paper eaters and polygamous couples for the moment, and delving into the world of extreme cougars and the men who love them. In this instance, the adjective "extreme" when used in conjunction with the word "cougar" means that there is a 20-year or larger…

12 Celebrity Reverse May/December Romances

Perhaps it's my loyalty to Princess Buttercup (from "The Princess Bride"), but I shook my fists and cried "inconceivable!" every time there were rumors that Sean Penn was running around on Robin Wright, his wife of 13 years. When the two finally split in 2010, Penn took up with a string of models, finally dating…

New Research Suggests Cougars Have Shorter Life Spans

Consider yourself lucky, Demi Moore; you broke free from Ashton a healthier woman (just don’t smoke any more of those crazy herbs, girl). New research suggests that marrying a younger man may be a cause for increased mortality rates among women. That totally shatters my dreams of bagging a 30-year-old on my 55th birthday. It…

Guy Talk: Why Cougars Are Better Than Silver Foxes

Hugo's piece was originally published at the Good Men Project Magazine. Both at the Good Men Project and at my own blog, my most popular posts in terms of page-views are invariably those that focus on one particularly controversial subject: older men and younger women. (Here’s “What Young Women Are Really Looking For From Older

Ashton Kutcher Cheating Rumors Don’t Sit Well With Cougars

The tabloids have been rife with rumors of Ashton Kutcher having an affair with a younger woman -- maybe two. According to reports, Kutcher partied his booty off at a San Diego tech convention, getting down and dirty with two women, the weekend he and wife Demi Moore celebrated (or perhaps didn'tcelebrate) their sixth wedding anniversary. So far Demi…

Cougars Are A Myth, Says Sociologist

We've written about "cougars" a lot here at The Frisky, but have we actually met many in real life? Have we met any in real life? No and no. Older women who date younger men exist, of course: Demi Moore, Madonna and Susan Sarandon, as well as all the women who make their living selling…

Meow! Google Restricts Cougar Dating Sites From Its Searches

Google has gone cougar-hunting. The search engine has classified "cougar" dating sites like CougarLife.com as "non-family safe" and banned them from its content pages. Google ads appear on over 6,700 websites, including biggies like YouTube and MySpace. Sad news for Samantha Jones indeed — but unfortunately Google has a glaring double standard if you compare…

Ladies, Marrying A Younger Man Can Kill You

According to an article in Science Daily, Demi Moore probably won't be with us much longer. Seriously, though, studies show that women who get hitched to younger dudes have a lower life expectancy than chicks who score a spouse their own age. On the flip side, men with younger wives tend to live longer. Life…

“Cougar” Ad For Air New Zealand Is Equal Parts Funny And Offensive

Off-fun-sive? Hilari-sexist? Don't mind me: I'm just trying to think up a word to describe ads that I know demean women, but I actually think are pretty funny. Take this commercial for Air New Zealand, a faux-nature documentary about "cougars" and their prey. I'd be happy if I never again heard the word "cougar," "puma"…

Girl Talk: My Mother, The Cougar

As a free-spirited 26-year-old, I support a wide range of lifestyles. But I’m just not into sharing the same dating pool with my mom—a fit, fun-loving, blonde bombshell of a 50-year-old. After all, the term "cougar" is only funny if your mother isn’t one. A glamour girl in suburban Baltimore, my mom was bound for…

Quotable: Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch Explain Men Who’ve Got “Gray Balls”

Amy Poehler: Can I ask you how you feel about this term "cougar"? I hate that f***ing word. Rachel Dratch: Me, too! Since the dawn of moving-making, there have been so many scenarios where an older guy is with a younger woman and we don't bat an eye. But if it's reversed and a 40-year-old…

Will Cough Drops Find The Inner Cougar In Any Mom?

Don't you just wish Don Draper would step out of the TV screen and teach some advertisers a thing or two? This weird cougar mom ad for Halls cough drops (cough drops?!) is a case in point. It gets your attention, but the cougar mom/cough drops connection just doesn't make any sense. And not i…

Diva Hotel’s Cougar Package Deal Grosses Us Out

According to The New York Times, cougars are not only trendy, but they're here to stay! And if that's the case, she's gonna need a place to stay, when she's on one of her prowls. That must be the rationale behind Diva Hotel's "Cougars With Personality" package. The San Francisco boutique hotel is offering sexy…

Candace Bushnell Tames The Term “Cougar”

Famous lady author Candace Bushnell has cracked the whip against the term “cougar” in an op-ed published in the upcoming issue of More magazine. So what if the “Sex and the City” writer is 50 and her hubby (a ballet dancer ... hot) is 10 years younger? Don’t call the lady a “cougar!” She wonders,…

Bristol Palin's baby-daddy, who has been doing the talk-show circuit, escorted the D-lister to the Teen Choice Awards last night.

A Roaring Good Time: The First Annual Cougars Convention

I normally find conventions kind of creepy and cult-like, but this one actually sounds amazing: The National Single Cougars Convention for Young Men & Older Women in Silicon Valley. I’m not sure at what age you become a legitimate cougar, but I do know that the second I turned 30, much younger boys were popping…

Sugar Ray Loves Cougars

Mark McGrath and his band Sugar Ray are really into cougars. So much so, that they’ve named their latest album Music for Cougars. While I’m slightly offended that they’re targeting such a specific demographic (oh, and I normally want to vom in my mouth upon hearing the term ‘cougar’), McGrath and his buddies are totally…
