Cross Border Cougaring

You know that women have finally punched a hole in the glass ceiling when they start going to foreign countries to procure sex.

I read this article: "Older white women join Kenya's sex tourists"

"Sex Tourist".
Is this a new form of tourism?

"The health risks are stark in a country with an AIDS prevalence of 6.9 percent. Although condom use can only be guessed at, Julia Davidson, an academic at Nottingham University who writes on sex tourism, said that in the course of her research she had met women who shunned condoms -- finding them too "businesslike" for their exotic fantasies.

The white beaches of the Indian Ocean coast stretched before the friends as they both walked arm-in-arm with young African men, Allie resting her white haired-head on the shoulder of her companion, a six-foot-four 23-year-old from the Maasai tribe.

He wore new sunglasses he said were a gift from her.

"We both get something we want -- where's the negative?" Allie asked in a bar later, nursing a strong, golden cocktail."

I'm sorry, but the whole article had the "eeeeewwwwwww" factor going really strong for me.

It's not because it's older women and young men, or older white women and younger black men...it's because it's about foreign prostitution, and it's so...blatantly desperate.

I know that for a lot of my girlfriends (single and married), Cougars are "The Ghost of Christmas Future", and scares the crap out of them....Hell, it scares me too.

Do cougars know they're cougars?
