Lately in romanticas, we’ve seen the increase in popularity of older women and younger men partner novels. We even see ‘cougars”, as older women who take younger lovers are called, portrayed on TV in Carmen Diaz skits on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and in a new comedy series with Courtney Cox. We also see it in the striking popularity of a new multi-author series at Ellora’s Cave called The Cougar Challenge. (www.jasminejade.com)
So this must be a pervasive dynamic in the general population.
Well, I have no clue about the statistics.
But I do know that more and more women (and perhaps men) are reading these novels.
Now, I ask you, what is the reason for that?
Is it just a fantasy that a woman can still have hot sex with a younger dude when she’s over forty?
Or is it that older women are sub-consciously learning how to: a) be more aggressive when media tells them things are beginning to sag, or b) learn or re-learn how to please a younger more energetic lover?
Write to me!
This inquiring mind wants to know!
No, I have not written a cougar novel. YET. But will with the EC Cougar Challenge group!
Let me in on your secret fantasies. Do younger men turn you on?
If so, why?
Or why would you never, ever…
You get me!
