An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man. The cougar can be anyone from an overly surgically altered wind tunnel victim, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn-meister, to a real hottie or milf. Cougars are gaining in popularity -- particularly the true hotties -- as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her shit together.
That cougar I met last night, showed me shit I didn't know existed, I'm goin back for more.

An "older," experienced woman who happens to find herself in a sexual relationship (committed or not) with a younger man. She is not necessarily a slut, nor is she desperate. She offers sexual expertise and is open to new experiences. She simply wants to have fun. Though older, she may actually look younger than her "hook-up." She is attractive, confident, and just wants to have fun. She will not attempt to trap her mate into marriage, children or even an exclusive relationship. She is not interested in drama or games, as that would interfere with the pleasure she enjoys.
My friend says I'm a cougar because I'm having sex with a younger guy, but I didn't hunt him down - he approached ME!

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.
Real Relationship: "I prefer my Cougar Woman because I'm tired of all the silly girl games. We have more fun and the sex is more fulfilling"

Casual Romp: "Without the fear of pregnancy, sex is 10 times better!"

Contemplative Observer: "She has sexy curves, deeper eyes and she gives me space and freedom. I like my freedom so I think I'll go get me some Cougar!"

(see also hunt, prowl, corner, pounce). Noun. A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. "Man is cougar's number one prey"
Millions of them. More famously, Demi and Ashton, Naomi Watts and Heath Ledger, Joan Collins and her hubby, Cameron and Justin, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins

Get a Cougar mug for your mate Helena.
A woman aged 35 and up who can compete with younger women for the younger man. She is a woman who ATTRACTS younger men. A cougar is independent, well groomed, and sophisticated with a body that competes with a 24 year old. She is fit and leads an active life. She does not "prey" on younger men, and she does not have to be single. A cougar is not a MILF. A cougar is graceful, and aging more slowly than other women their age.
