There's been a lively thread in this forum, "Older woman vs. younger guy" (why does it have to be "vs."?) and most of the ladies who posted there seemed to vote "aye". Seems like there's a slang term for women who seek out and bed younger men: "Cougars". I first heard it on a TV program, I think it was ABC's 20/20. Now, there really isn't anything new under the sun, older women and younger men have been a combustible mix forever, but trust the media to make it a "trend" if not a "fad", and it seems around here that many of the ladies have positive interactions with men several to many years younger than they are. So here's the question to the ladies: Do you find the term "Cougar" offensive? Or do you find it complimentary towards your raw animal magnetism men find irresistible, like the mighty huntress stalking her prey? I need to know, because if I use the term with my wife (who's nine years older than I am), I don't want to be picking up my teeth from the floor.
