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 out of bars and subway cars, falling over themselves to get a whiff of me. Well…I may be exaggerating, but this is my fantasy, so please don’t interrupt. But seriously, there’s something appealing about a younger guy who is still un-jaded about dating and who is still willing to take risks. That’s why I am seriously considering this convention. In my fantasy, all the gorgeous successful thirty- and forty-somethings will wear ball gowns, while dashing young twenty-something men carry our champagne glasses and feed us grapes. I like it. After the jump, the details. Keep reading »

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 into these ladies. About the word, McGrath says, “There’s no negative slant. It’s a word of empowerment. Cougars are great!” He’s particularly fond of Vicki from “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” He even titled the track “She’s Got The (Woo-Hoo)!” after her customary greeting from the show. While the blonde O.C. mom may be flattered, I have to say if there was ever a reason not to purchase an album, I think naming a song after the most unbearable woman on a Bravo series would be a pretty solid rationale.

Jennifer Aniston Is A Puma

Jennifer Aniston will star in the upcoming film “Pumas,” directed by Wayne McClammy (yes, that is his name and it’s already funnier than this movie could ever be), about two thirtysomething women who make a habit of romancing younger men and “take a French skiing vacation that challenges their romantic expectations.” “Pumas,” for those not in the (lame-slang-term) know, are similar to “cougars” only younger by about a decade. Coincidentally, you may remember that Courteney Cox Arquette, Aniston’s bestie, is working on a TV show called “Cougar Town.” We’ve heard rumors that there’s been a rift between the pair, so could this be Jen’s way of stickin’ it to Court and being, like, “Nanana, I’m younger“? Whatevs, all I know is that both of these projects are going to be tragic. [Variety]

Cougars Go Gaga For Glambert

The secret’s out: cougars want to claw “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert, says blogger and self-proclaimed Lambert-lover Joan Raymond at Newsweek.com. According to her, confident women over the age of 40 are obsessed with the 27-year-old newly-outed singer. Overall, her reasons make sense, but the thing is, nothing she says explains why older women would react differently than, say, any teenybopper or “Idol” obsessed fan. Keep reading »

Hide Your Sons! The Hyena Comes Out To Prey

Just as soon as we’ve tired of hearing, using, typing, writing the word “cougar,” a new type of female has emerged from the forest. According to Dr. Jennifer Austin Leigh, the “number one teen girl expert in America,” men have another feline to worry about — the “hyena.” “Hyena” describes a much younger woman/girl, who preys upon and dominates young men. The female hyena (the real one), you see, is much more sexually aggressive than her male counterpart — just like many of today’s teen girls and young women, says Best. She coined the term in her new book, “Laid or Loved? The Secrets Guys Wish You Knew About Being a Dream Girl Instead of a Just-in-his-Jeans Girl,” in which she quotes a teenage boy describing the loss of his virginity.

“I was at a party and had too much to drink. One of the girls decided she wanted a thrill and pulled off my pants and made me get a hard-on and had sex with me … Everyone watched. Some friends even took pictures of us on their cell phones. I don’t remember a lot of it. But I regret that I lost my virginity like that.”

Wow. Crazy. But is this one example really indicative of some raging epidemic? Keep reading »

When Cougars Attack: The Too Hot For Teacher Trend

The term cougar has become a status symbol, synonymous with women of a certain income bracket, age, and beauty. While it is seemly an honor to be pretty and powerful enough to bed a younger man, lately it’s also been misinterpreted and become outright predatory. With Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” being consummated all over the country, the term “cougar” is getting a bad name. Indulging in trophy man is one thing, plucking an unripe boyfriend from junior high school is quite another — not to mention it’s illegal. A bunch of bad apple female educators have been spoiling the whole bunch. On Monday, the news that a Massachusetts elementary school teacher running off with her student became public, but she’s hardly the first educator in Massachusetts to rape a child in grade school this year.
