A little trivia for you: The origins of the term “cougar” dates back to the 1980’s when members of the Vancouver Canucks used it in the locker room as a derogatory name for the team’s older groupies. But the concept has been around much longer.
Hot, tight-bodied older women have always fueled younger men’s sexual fantasies since our fathers were our age. (Just watch 1967’s The Graduate to see Dustin Hoffman seduced by pop-culture’s first cougar.) But now that every “The View”-watching wildcat is lusting after boy-toy ass, a new breed of sexed-up older ladies is upon us – and no man is safe.
