HuffPost: A giant risque billboard has gone up on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles that is sure to slow traffic along the Sunset Strip. The billboard, pictured above, is of a sexy blonde woman holding a cocktail and lounging next to the words, “CougarLife.com … for Mother F*ckers.“ CougarLife.com describes itself as “the premier online dating service that pairs women in their prime with younger men and ends the double standard!” Elissa Buchter, spokeswoman for Cougar Life and a cougar herself, told The Huffington Post that the billboard is the first of more the company hopes to put up in Hollywood and West Hollywood. The company is targeting the area, Buchter said, because it is the national “cougar capital” — with more Cougar Life members in the 90069 zip code than anywhere else in the U.S. Regarding the term “mother f*ckers,” she commented, “The majority of cougars are single moms. And we thought it’d be a good way to get their attention and make a splash.” According to the Cougar Life website, a cougar is a woman 35 or older and seeking or involved with a “cub,” a man at least five years younger. The relationship works for both partners because “they’re both at their sexual peak,” Buchter explained. “Older women are a lot more confident, more willing to explore, and in touch with their sexuality,” she said. A lot of men in their late-20s want an independent woman who is not codependent and does not want drama or money, Buchter said. “Cougars have their own thing going on and can show cubs new experiences. And younger women are often cranky, indecisive, needy, immature and play a lot of games,” she said. As for the cougars, Buchter explained, “It’s refreshing for women to come across a man who’s in his prime and doesn’t have baggage.” It’s not surprising that the “cougar capital” is in Hollywood, the land of movie stars, money and plastic surgery. In a recent survey on CougarLife.com, “cubs” ranked their favorite celeb cougars. Sharon Stone won with a landslide 44 percent of the votes, followed by Kathy Griffin (20 percent), Madonna (18 percent), Kim Cattrall (15 percent) and, lastly, Susan Sarandon (3 percent), according to the site.
Couple things about this. Nailed it on the head about the younger women being cranky, indecisive, needy, immature, and play a lot of games. Second, who the hell are they polling that 20% of people voted Kathy Griffin as a cougar?! If Hellen Keller were a man he would know Kathy Griffin is one of the most annoying, Andy Dick looking fire-crotches in the world. No way would she break the top 1,000 on my list. Sharon Stone and Kim Cattrall could get it though.
