*Editor’s note: Names of some of the interviewees have been changed for privacy.Annette Wheeler* didn’t recall the exact moment she first heard the term “cougar,” but she did remember dashing to her computer to look it up.Whenever you hear about men dating older women, it's often talked about like it's a way to "mix things up" sexually. In this week's Sex Talk Realness, spoke with three men about what it's like to love sleeping with much older women in a world that tries to make it seem like that's a rarity. I love dating in general, but I feel like older woman just have more to offer.
Fortunately, more women are realizing the flaw in these beliefs.
A recent study shows women are more likely to choose a younger man when dating online.
She never analyzed her attraction to younger men (or their attraction to her), but with “cougar” an increasingly popular term used to describe older women dating much younger men, her longtime preference is suddenly in the spotlight.
For Wheeler and other women like her, younger men — many of them 15 years or more their juniors — are a natural fit.
Man C: Nothing is really different about sleeping with older women. In many cases, they've already had their families, so neither of us are dependent on the other. Man A: There wasn't anything I didn't like about it.
