A woman 40 years or older, in her sexual prime, emotionally more mature, healthy and energetic. She dates, plays with or marries a younger man that can keep up with her.
Due to her strong presence, knowledge, ego management and self cultivation a Cougar is more appealing and sexy to younger men that don't like games, don't want children, and they are deeper than the average male under 40.
The most dominant interest in Cougars is their deeper charm that is not based on shallow concepts of beauty and also their managed temperaments as they are not driven by hormonal imbalances that cause jealousy, competition and other foul behavior common to women under 40 (she's been there, done that).
There are negative ideas being projected onto Cougars by threatened hormonal women and shallow males that couldn't handle a real Cougar anyway! These types can have each other, they are not part of the Cougar Power reality.
The under dressed women over 40 that sleaze around at bars "hunting" young males cannot be called Cougars. They skeezed around before they matured and just continue to do so.
The Cougar is a power animal in all Native medicine. A Cougar is a powerful woman that is not as satisfied with men stuck in an old mind-set about women/sex/politics etc. Exactly like the older men that feel more alive with younger women, the Cougar is more alive with younger men.
