Just found an interesting page on Wikipedia, almost by accident.
Last night I heard that a Downtown restaurant – I won’t name it but valet parking is a prominent feature – has a reputation as “The Cougar Lounge.” Meaning, cougars from Germantown sit at the bar and try to pick up younger men.
So I looked up “cougar” on Wikipedia, figuring I’d link to it for those who don’t know what a cougar is, and it led me to this page on age disparity in sexual relationships. Not only is there a section defining “cougar,” but other similar terms as well, such as chicken hawk, sugar daddy, MILF, jailbait, and so on.
It also has a formula (which I’ve heard of before) to compute the minimum socially acceptable age of people you can hook up with – half your age plus seven. According to that formula I shouldn’t be trying to hook up with anyone under 26. I don’t think I like that formula.
I can’t believe the quote “If there’s grass on the field, play ball” didn’t get explained somewhere on the page though.
