About Unleashing the Cougar!

A Frank, Down-to-Earth Glimpse into the World of a Freshly Liberated Cougar Let Loose Online

I’m Eve, variously labelled as a cougar, MILF, idealist, randy romantic, and non-traditional poly/RA chick who likes to bend boundaries and question the status quo.

On this blog I share my journey as a suddenly single, excited and nervous digital dating virgin over 40, who soon learned to play to her strengths in the volatile new world of 21st Century dating and mating.

I discovered the tantalising lure of younger men seeking cougars and MILFS, virtual sex, kinks – and the illusion of endless choice online. I’ve written about it in my book UNLEASHING THE COUGAR – ADVENTURES OF AN ONLINE DATING VIRGIN, which I’m looking to publish. (If you’re an astute literary agent or publisher, I’d love to hear from you).

Here in this blog, I’m sharing my stories and what I learn with you. I hope you’ll share too and give me feedback. I love hearing from readers and other bloggers!

After initially feeling boxed in by the cougar myth, I reclaimed cougar status for myself and for all the millions of women embracing their second phase of life.

We are not invisible or pointless!

Through heartfelt memoirs I will share my transformation from eager ingénue new to the ever-changing lingo and etiquette, bad behaviour, undisclosed expectations and in-your-face dick pics!

My search for intimacy, meaning and pleasure fits within the context of alternatives to monogamy and thumbing my nose at relationship conventions. I’m interested in unpacking the notion of and social understandings behind monogamy. I adore thinkers and writers like Esther Perel and Dan Savage who explore this terrain and help people through the quagmire of desire, infidelity and relationships.

I’ll be looking at subjects like polyamory and relationship anarchy in my goal to shine a light on the messages we’re given in our lives about what choices we have, what relationships should look like, and what we expect of our partners.

Here in this blog I will also reflect on the thorny topic of age for women, tips and advice for people looking online for partners, but most of all, I will question everything and pull no punches about post-internet dating.

If you are a cougar or a man or woman who loves them, I want to hear your feedback and stories.
