"There were these fans who were middle-aged women who were crazy over those young cute guys."He adds that it's not difficult for young guys to attract older women as long as stay in shape and dress reasonably well."The older women, the cougars, they're hungry, because men their own age are not interested in them," Gosse insists.

He points out that when he used to hold parties for younger men and older women, nobody cared."As soon as I changed the name to cougar parties, people were beating down our doors," he adds.
