Younger men are better looking, healthier, have more energy, are more fun, don’t need Viagra, and won’t die on you!
Such is the rationale for tonight’s California Cougar Convention. While older men are considered men even though they show off their grays in the form of a young blond, society’s answer to the reverse situation is: predatory animals. So, in the spirit of the jungle kingdom, the Society of Single Professionals (yes) organized tonight’s convention for cougars and their would-be cubs at the Beverly Hills Crowne Plaza Hotel. Thirty dollars will buy you access to the stalking, the pouncing, and the purring; in addition, the young cubs will vote to elect a Miss Cougar California (who must be 40 or over (that’s who an “older woman” is, apparently) and “legally single”) during the night’s dance party.
For those of you who want so desperately to cougar, but don’t know how, take the 6:30 class in cougaring at The Cougar School, free for paid convention goers. I’m not exactly sure what this will entail, but I’m envisioning the scene from The Lion King where Mufasa teaches Simba how to pounce. Cubs, heed the sign’s warning: If attacked, fight back. Zazu should have been so lucky.
