50 Shades of Granny

While channel surfing last Saturday night I was surprised to find "Grandmother Lovers" on TLC featuring women ages 60 and older getting it on with much younger men. My son would say that those women are not "Cougars" they are "Mountain Lions". Well, I say they are "Brave Cats".  Then, I called my truly modern Mom to come and watch these older gals her age, and she was well entertained and could not stop laughing.

One of the men featured on the show is Kyle who is 31 years old. He has an active sex life and juggles several girlfriends at the same time. But you won’t find Kyle hitting on girls at bars or going on blind dates. Kyle is more likely to meet his “type” at a nursing home or bingo hall.  Kyle even proclaims “I love dentures. Women, they can be self-conscious about dentures. Ladies, I promise you, telling your man you have dentures will not turn him off. . . . .”  Yes, he seriously says that; watch it for yourself:
As a single woman of a certain age I would NOT date a man 20 years my junior and certainly not a "Gigolo" what women my age would call a man with those habits.  If this show is fictional, then go ahead Granny with yo bad self.  But if this is a true story, then those women better be very careful with their bodies, their finances and their mental stability. Men like Kyle are everywhere and they are usually looking for something that is not so easy to find. Until you open the door to your heart and your wallet, then Wowza!. . .he hit the lotto, you get to be selfish all over again & set up for more heartache. Remember those?

In a Huffington Post article we met Anne who dated a few younger men whom she met at parties or through work and says that the question of her age never came up. She says:-
1. Remember that younger men are not for keeps. They sway in and out, flexing smooth broad shoulders and gazing lustily from eyes without veins.
2. They have too much choice, and you have less.
3. They are spoilt, and you are grateful. Above all they are transitional, and the truth is so are you.
4. Seduce or be seduced, it doesn't matter. It's all good until you get attached and then it sucks so bad you might dissolve with pain.
5. Play the game but know the rules. The younger men are enthralled, and you are thrilled. That's all there is to it.
6. Just go for it. As Joan Collins said when asked about younger men: 'If they die, they die'.

Often, older women who are newly divorced, and looking to sow their wild oats just want a "Boy Toy". Getting involved with a man who isn't looking for a serious relationship and wants to have fun is the perfect solution. Younger men have the stamina and carefree attitude to satisfy their need for a wild ride. These single women looking to get between the sheets are no longer sexually inhibited, know what they want and are usually in control.  Not the women I saw on the TV show. . . they were presumed to be lonely women meeting younger men online, seeking companionship & taking some wild chances. But, the theory of 'bad younger men' does not apply to very situation and sometimes Granny gets more than her share of 50 shades.

A 2008 study published in the journal Psychology of Women Quarterly found women who are 10 or more years older than their partner report more satisfaction and relationship commitment compared to women who are the same age or younger than their partner. The rise of older woman-younger man relationship celebrates the beauty of the aging woman and her active role and power in society.  If the attraction is Mutual then these women are not “robbing the cradle,” but are an example of the modern day woman who knows what she wants and goes after it.  After all, "age ain’t nothing but a number".  Or is it?
