School For Aspiring Cougars — Hilarious or Horrifying?

Mark your calendars, cougar-wannabes! November 6 is your big day. Before the California Cougar Convention takes place at the Beverly Hills Crowne Plaza Hotel, cougar expert Lucia (no last name?) will host a cougar tutorial. The Cougar School must have a very easy learning curve, because this "Queen of the Cougar Jungle" Lucia teaches the class at 6:30 — and then gives the keynote address at 8 p.m.!

I imagine her instruction will go something like this: "Wear sexy clothes, make it known you're sexually available, and go to a bar where cubs are." I mean — could it be any more difficult than that?

What do you think about Cougar School?

It can be hard to find a decent man at a young age, but having to compete with a bunch of older (and often manipulative) women too, who are being trained in it? Doesn't sound too fair, IMHO. It's like outsourcing dating.

I agree with spacekat as well. I actually see nothing wrong with "cougars" (I hate the term though), but if you have to take a class on being one then you probably shouldn't be one. To me it's something that comes naturally, not something that should be taught.

There's nothing wrong with an older woman who happens to be dating a younger man... but to seek out that company...? And that title? As if the only men you could possibly identify with are 20-somethings? I think there's something more to it than just feeling attracted to young guys, like seeking attention and validation, not a relationship.

how humiliating...if a woman wants to date a younger guy i could not care less. if a woman is trying to be a "cougar", i find that disgusting. i believe a course in cougarism falls under the latter.

This is silly. There is really no need for there to be a class on bedding younger men. They will have sex with an older woman because chances are she's not looking for or expecting a relationship. She's just out for sex and (most) guys in their 20's are just fine with that.I do find the term offensive and I agree with Vsugar.

If you need schooling to learn to attract 20 and 30 year old D*cks then you don't need to be a cougar. As everyone knows 20 year old men give it to any body...lol

Do any of the rest of you find the term "cougar" kind of offensive? I am really turned off by it. I don't know why older men who date younger women get the nice, fun moniker "playboy", while older women who date younger men get tagged with the name of a dangerous predator. The suggestion that it is a predatory stance - 'hunting' young meat - I don't know, it just really makes my skin crawl...

I don't know which is worse, that something like this actually exists or that people pay to go (or not pay to go)

i also agree with skg...and i was going to say, the main point of being a cougar is "be old, be hot, prey on young men" - this "course" isn't rocket science!
