TADPOLING GOES MAINSTREAM

I WATCHED A SHOW LAST NIGHT CALLED "AGE OF LOVE", WHERE 40-YEAR OLD WOMEN COMPETE WITH 20-YEAR OLD WOMEN FOR THE AFFECTIONS OF A YOUNG (30-YEAR OLD) BACHELOR. IT'S FUNNY THAT THE NETWORK THINKS THE "OLDER" WOMAN IS 40-ish. THE WOMEN ON THIS SHOW ALL LOOK PRETTY MUCH THE SAME, REGARDLESS OF THEIR AGES. I WAS AMUSED BY THE SEGMENT WHERE THE YOUNG BACHELOR IS INTRODUCED TO THE "OLDER" WOMEN, ONE AT A TIME. BY THE TIME THE FOURTH ONE HAD ENTERED, HE LOOKED STRICKEN. AT THE END OF THE EVENING, HE SENT THE OLDEST ONE HOME. I DON'T GET THE IMPRESSION THIS IS AN ADVENTUROUS TADPOLE.

WHAT I DID LIKE IS THAT THE CONVERSATION ABOUT OLDER WOMEN AND YOUNGER MEN HAS MOVED INTO A CERTAIN ACCEPTANCE. AS IT SHOULD. IT ISN'T SO UNUSUAL ANYMORE THAT YOUNGER MEN FIND MATURE, HEALTHY AND GENERALLY FABULOUS OLDER WOMEN SEXY AND ALLURING. AND WHO NEEDS PERKY BREASTS WHEN YOU CAN CLAIM WISDOM AND CONFIDENCE?

I'M GOING TO FOLLOW THIS SHOW AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. THEY BILL IT AS THE CONTEST BETWEEN THE KITTENS (THE YOUNGER WOMEN, OF COURSE) AND THE COUGARS. WHEN THE "COUGAR" FIRST HIT THE SPOTLIGHT IN 2004, SHE WAS REVEALED AS A WOMAN IN HER FIFTIES, WHO WAS WILLING TO WEAR HER DRESSES SHORT AND TIGHT, SHOWING A BIT OF CLEAVAGE AND TROLLING THE BAR SCENE FOR A ONE-NIGHT STAND WITH A YOUNG GIGOLO. THE NETWORK HAS TAMED THESE POTENTIAL COUGARS, PROBABLY TO PROTECT THE PREDATORY IMPRESSION THEY MIGHT GIVE TO THE MASSES. CENSORSHIP IS ALIVE AND WELL ON TELEVISION.
