Cruise ships are increasingly catering to holidaymakers' particular interests - whether it's art and culture or a particular hobby. And sexual attraction is no exception as what is thought to be the world's first 'Cougar Cruise' has proven a sell-out in the U.S. Aimed at older women who prefer to date younger men, the fully-booked International Cougar Cruise set sail from San Diego in California on December 4.

I wonder what the cougar/male ratio. I guess the draw for the man is 1000 batting average.

The article doesn’t mention how many men have purchased tickets. And did they allow sales only to men under a certain age? Surely that’s illegal discrimination in a public accommodation.

Also doesn’t say how many men were PAID to “sail” with these pathetic women. Beyond the 3 mile limit there’s no law against prostitution.

If the men are pros, they’d better have submitted recent medical exam results, or the organizers of the event could have a liability problem.

I am thinking medical.

Pure STDeez.

How many of these men are hetro?
How many of these men are not looking to rob a bank account?

How many of these women at Cougar age are just lost/unwise like a sail with no mast.

Now with that being said...

Nothing wrong with enjoying life and your hobbies and enriching them socially and sexually.

Being extremely Selective and chastity is a huge endowment.

Better to be a flower untouched but by one bee to polenate than a swarm of and die the next day.

If it is a Cougar Love boat I would assume the men who act kind and with no gag reflex do so under the fair cash and no tax law.

If so the cruise better have a 24 hour open bar or she's got no chance...

I just read this:

"The guest of honor on the Cougar Cruise will be Miss Cougar America, who will be selected at the National Single Cougars Convention, Friday, August 28 at Dinah’s Garden Hotel, in Palo Alto CA. Cubs (younger men) in attendance will decide who wins the contest."

Good lord, that's awesome. I'll find a pic of her.

we single guys are all professionals.. if a 30 to 40 year old guy can’t get laid on that cruise he might as well give it up

of course, to be cougar bait, a 30 to 40 yr old guy would have to be hunted by a 50 to 60 yr old cougar. Not that there aren’t some great ones in that category, mind you...

I knew a guy in his 80’s who took up cruising. He said that all he had to do was wear his light blue dinner jacket and sit on the second row of a show and he would get covered up with invites for drinks or dinner.

He loved to tell about taking an old girl on a cruise only to find out that a former cruise mate was on board. He lived the life of a saint while married but as a widower he learned that he could stray off the straight and narrow just by being him and showing up

Of course, to carry the analogy out further, where does that leave the 55-year old guys?

My wife and I have given each other humorous "adultery exceptions" over our seventeen happy years of marriage. Mine is the luscious Nigella Lawson, who is not only beautiful and sexy, but has an Oxford degree (Medieval and Modern Languages, Lady Margaret Hall).

My wife's "free pass" is Alan Rickman. Yes, the bad guy from the Die Hard movies. Go figure!

Rickman is great. Has your wife seen him in the Ang Lee "Sense and Sensibility"? He plays a good guy.

I don’t care how old you are as long as you have your sh!t together, want kids, love football and Jesus, and are an unabashed conservative. Of course, dirty old men looking for arm candy, or the desperate, unhappy married men best stay the hell away.
