Are older women losing their luster?

It's been the year(s) of the Cougar. At first we were intrigued by older women dating younger men. It was as if they were telling society if the men can do it, so can we. Then it became a joke. The subject of sit-coms and movies where Betty White (who I think is more like a dinosaur  than a cougar) hitting on men young enough to be her great-great grandsons.

As I was reading my colleague's nightlife tale of older women trying to pick him up, it got me thinking — Is this really what young men think when women of a certain age (carrying flip phones) try to cozy up to them?

There was the woman who stared me down at Alley Cat. “I’m looking at you, silly!” she yelled out when I tried to sidestep her gaze. She proceeded to tell me she moved to Charlotte 17 years ago for a job. Everything else she said afterward was white noise because all I could think was, “Damn, I was 6!”

Then there was the woman who made it her mission to get me to dance at Luna Lounge, going as far as taking my Blackberry from me. I half-heartedly complied, but about midway through the blaring ’90s hip-hop and my non-committal two-step, it struck me how this one song held completely different places in our psyches. She was excited like they played this at her prom (granted, they probably did). I only heard this song around my older cousins.

It's always been a double standard when it comes to women and dating. She can't have too many exes or she's a crazy slut, yet a man can have five ex-wives and we still think he's a good catch.

Take George Clooney for example. He's a serial dater and the last time he dated someone his own age was probably during his days on The Facts of Life.

The world laughed when Linda Hogan, the ex-wife of Hulk Hogan, began dating Charlie Hill, a dude the same age as her daughter. But what did people say about the Brooke Hogan lookalike Hulk dated? Not much.

But if younger men, the men cougars want, aren't interested, does this mean the jokes will end?

Because if your night is ending like this:

By the end of the night when others are sealing the deal, I’m usually admitting I was born in 1986 and either being laughed at, followed by an abrupt exit or, the weirder of the two, only endearing myself more to these potential cougs.

Is there really a point in trying?

Listen to the woman — she knows more.

When it comes to sex, older women know what they're doing and are very confident about it, according to a new study.

Older men, not so much.

Well, a majority of the baby boomers think they've learned just about all there is to know on the subject — and more women than men are confident of their knowledge -- according to a new Associated Press-LifeGoesStrong.com poll.

Among people aged 45 to 65, 59 percent of women think they know all about sex, while just 48 percent of men share that confidence level.

"I don't think a single person in the whole world knows all there is about sex," commented Debby Herbenick of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University.

"Women historically have more resources," to learn about sex, noted Jennifer Bass, director of communications at the Kinsey Institute for Sex, Gender and Reproduction.

And let's face facts, women have to study their own bodies and decide what works best for them when it comes to having sex because every man isn't going to take his time to please his sex partner.

Herbenick agreed that women use their friends to talk about sex more than men do and are more likely to see a counselor or therapist.

Finding sexual pleasure can be more of a learning process for women, she said, "Women are just more likely to discuss sex in a real way with friends and other women."

Even though older women feel confident about sex, it doesn't mean they're happy with their current sex life.

Other findings of the poll include:

- Among age groups, baby boomers are the unhappiest with their sex lives. Some 24 percent say they're dissatisfied, compared with 12 percent of 18-29 year olds, 20 percent of 30-44 year olds and 17 percent of those over 65.

- A majority of female boomers -- 56 percent -- say their sex drive has decreased as they have gotten older, compared with 46 percent of men.

- Seventy-two percent of men aged 45-65 have fantasized about having sex with someone other than their sexual partner at the time, compared with 48 percent of women.

- Among married boomers, 62 percent said they had had sex for the first time with a partner other than their first spouse, while 35 percent said their first spouse was also their first sexual partner. Fourteen percent said they had sex for the first time with their first spouse, but not until after they were married.

- More baby boomer men, 73 percent, than women, 54 percent, said their first sexual partner was someone other than their first spouse. Just 15 percent of women over age 65 said they had sex for the first time with someone other than their first spouse, while 54 percent of men over 65 said their first partner wasn't their first spouse.
