- The MILF- defined as a "Mother I'd Like To F**k"
- The Cougar-a divorced and or married sexually aggressive, attractive woman over 40.
I'll take the MILF label over the Cougar label any day. The term Cougar instantly implies that attractive women over 40, are always out for the kill, looking for their next sexual victim. Is this really the case? Or, once again, have a few bad apples spoiled it for the rest of us?
Take for example, an evening out with the girls: I consider myself to be somewhat attractive-not a total loss-with a fabulous fashion sense and a good eye for a designer's masterpieces. Couple that with the fact that I am a trained make-up professional and you've got the semblance of a pretty good finished product. Most of my friends worship at the same fashion houses that I do and almost all can wield a lipstick tube effectively. Between us all, we own enough "f**k me boots" to keep an entire grade of high school freshman in their seats during a math test on the chalkboard. For me, the motivation to get "dolled" up is for myself and my own self esteem. You know the old, look good, feel good thing. And really, we are still young. No, we are not throwing the towel in just yet.
Myself and said friends are at a bar having drinks, laughing, enjoying each other's company, when over walks a group of attractive, similarly aged guys. We all make small talk and exchange pleasantries, wouldn't want to be rude(or worse considered frigid!) One or two may break off into a small group to discuss politics or the recent economic crisis-whatever-we are all adults. Others are chatting and even flirting, dare I say it, the sexual energy hangs thick in the air. This may go on innocently for the rest of the evening then everyone retires home alone, happy for a great night socializing with friends.
Now I know that not every evening with a large group of over forty women goes according to this script. I am fully aware that there are deadly tan, overly dressed, overly fragranced, overly made-up, cougars out there just waiting to pounce on their next victim.
But let's use my example for our purposes today. I my scenario, where is the predatory behavior here?? Yes, we flirted. We're not dead, and god forbid I ever decide that a fetching appearance is not important-FOR MYSELF-first. In this scenario, where is the trap-set by the masterful, cunning, cougar to catch an unsuspecting male prey?
Are we a bunch of MILF's or Cougars?
