First off, the very word ‘cougar’ is most certainly moot.

Without getting too entangled in semantics, Elite Singles resident psychologist, Salama Marine, is quick to discuss this point.

So, if women from all walks of life are ignoring the stigma and romancing with the more youthful cohort of the male population, it begs the question; what’s the appeal?

You don’t need to be too imaginative to picture what the benefits of an older woman/younger man relationship might be.

Instead it’s a jocular reaffirmation of man’s traditional role as father-figure and provider of material wealth (and woman’s role as recipient).

Around about the same time cougardom exploded into the mainstream, social scientists became increasingly immersed in researching age-dissimilar couples where the woman is the older party.

Nevertheless, it somehow seems precarious to start explaining away the genuine rise in older women dating younger men by skimming off examples from LA’s amorous glitterati.

What’s more, the way in which news outlets around the world, Newsweek included, represented the issue is perhaps more telling of the way mature women are perceived by society.

However, what’s actually going on underneath the pop-style commentary and tabloid tales of ‘cougars’ and their ‘cubs’?

In search of clarity, we set out on a mission to look beyond the loaded monikers and dubious hype surrounding older woman/younger man relationships.

On the other hand, the aptly-named Cougar Town bolsters a smuttier stereotype.
