Original Starting post for this thread:
"Dear Abby, I am a 59-year old woman who has been dating men in their 40s. At first, I refused because I thought they were too young for me and people might laugh. Since then, I have decided that as long as they know from the beginning that I'm not looking for a serious committed relationship, I'd be happy to go out. I have made some great friends and had some great times. Abby, why do you think younger men are attracted to older women? I'm not exceptionally pretty nor do I have a great body, but I am a caring, fun person who loves music and dancing. Do you think you could poll your readers and get some feedback from men who date older women as to why they do? -"Cougar" in New York.

Dear "Cougar", Lord, I hate that word because it implies (to me) that the older woman is somehow predatory, and the men who find her attractive are helpless prey. If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say it's because many older women are independent, self-confident, worldly and not looking for commitment. Those qualities can be very attractive if a man isn't looking for commitment either. Men, I'll be interested in your comments."

So, men out there, let's hear from you why you are attacted to older women.

Benjamin Franklin answered this very question in 1745 with eight goodly reasons

"... all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:

1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor'd with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable.

2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman.

3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc'd may be attended with much Inconvenience.

4. Because thro' more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin'd to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding2 only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement.

6. Because the Sin is less. The debauching a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her for Life unhappy.

7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend the making an old Woman happy.

8thly and Lastly They are so grateful!!

Thus much for my Paradox. But still I advise you to marry directly; being sincerely Your affectionate Friend."

hmmm I'm going to be realistic and probably step on some toes but first let me say some men do really enjoy the company of older ladys and do prefer their company but some do because they are desperate some do because they have the odephus complesx, (did I spell that wrong) And some for financial reasons. enuff said

Lost_j1 nailed it in my book:

"women in their 30s and 40s are more comfortable with their bodies, lives and sex in general. We tend to know what we want and are past the whole giving a shit about being a good girl bullshit we were fed as children. We know what we like and aren't afraid to tell a man."

Not to mention they know their way around the bedroom unlike most" twinkies ".

Give me a wild woman or give me none!

What I have found is that the same men that claim they prefer older women, tell younger women they prefer them. Basically a hard dick will say whatever to seek a warm wet place to plow. Sorry if that sounds crude but somebody has to tell the truth.

Myself I want a warm wet place to plow, I do not care what age they are as long as they have brains, manners, self respect out of the bedroom. In the bedroom I want a wild woman. I find that in girls from 21 to as long as they are attractive and still breathing. We do find that couples in our own age group are easier to talk to, and my wife is a little more picky age wise than I am. But it is always funny at clubs that allow SMs how they move from one couple or female to another working their way around until one says yes. We find it humorous that sooner or later after they have hit on the young ones they make it around to us, and then throw out the line about older women. It is funny when my wife embarrasses them by telling them "What you think we are fucking blind and haven't been watching"!

I believe some younger men prefer older women because they seek an advisor, a mentor, a wise counsel, not just a sex partner. What do people think about that?"

LOL, when I was fucking the 23 year old I was definately not counseling or mentoring. I think that generally speaking. Generally mind you...because I know women who are 23 with great maturity and I know 45 year old children... but generally speaking (from what I have been told by men in their 20s...but then again, they may have been telling me whatever the fuck they thought I wanted to hear hahaha), women in their 30s and 40s are more comfortable with their bodies, lives and sex in general. We tend to know what we want and are past the whole giving a shit about being a good girl bullshit we were fed as children. We know what we like and aren't afraid to tell a man. Confidence is a man's strongest aphrodesiac.
