Cougar refers to an older woman, in their 40's and early 50's who's youthful looks are beginning to fade or are almost faded. Cougars tend to be sexually interested in younger men in their 20's or mid 30's since their libidos are more evenly matched. Cougars, being older and wiser are often financially stable and pursue men more for their boyish charm and stamina and less for their income level, career or ego. Cougars love the attention and passionate thrill of an uncomplicated sexually intense relationship that younger men tend to offer.
The slang term Cougar has become popularized by TV comedies such as 30 Rock and How I Met Your Mother (episode "Aldrin Justice"), the movie Ocean's Thirteen, The Graduate (Though the term Cougar is not referenced, the character "Mrs. Robinson" is an example of a Cougar) and the NBC reality TV show Age of Love. Famous Cougars include... Demi and Ashton, Naomi Watts and Heath Ledger, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.

A mature woman (old enough to be the mother of a high schooler and usually the product of a failed marriage) who has kept themself in good enough shape and style to compete with the younger early to mid 20s females for the silver back males at bars. A cougar's sexual appetite demands a healthy physically fit mate. For this reason, cougars are especially attracted to younger males.

Cougars make great mates for younger males because they usually have their own house and no roommates, no interest in reproducing, their own alcohol, fake breasts, don't expect you to call the next day, and don't require much cuddling after a good one night stand.

"Hey see those cougars on the dance floor?? The one on the right just handed me a hotel room key and said she had a bottle of wine she needed help with in room 412 at the Hilton"
