New Study Shows ‘Cougars’ Don’t Really Exist
You know all the stories that say men reach their sexual peak at 18 and women do so much later in life? Yeah, nevermind.
A new survey says those numbers are way off. The good news — or bad news, depending on how you look at it — is that cougars can no longer blame biology for their exploits. The survey, conducted by British sex-toy company Lovehoney (what, you thought real doctors were involved in this?), found that men have the best sex of their lives at age 33, while women hit their peak at 28. They’re most sexually-active at 29 and 25, respectively, so apparently it takes a few years to get it right.
A spokesperson for Lovehoney said, “This destroys the myth that it takes some women longer to master their sexual responses … Despite the female sexual reproductive system being far more complex than a man’s, women are discovering what works and what doesn’t faster than men.” How does one become the spokesperson for a sex-toy company? Nevermind.
This fascinating study also debunks the idea that women are much more sexually charged later in life, meaning that the female cougar idea could possibly become extinct.
We better start collecting their pelts.
