MILF, Cougar, and Puma are all degrading labels that reduce a person to an object rather than a human being. Using these labels is not cool, and you’ll be smart to remember it. However, if you are just curious about them or someone insulted you by using them on you or some you care then you need to read on.
A cougar is used to refer a woman who is older than 40 years and is looking for a younger man. In many cases, such a woman is assumed not to be interested in serious relationships and supposedly wants just a one-nighter with a young man. She doesn’t want to target men her old age as such men are usually out of shape and take women for granted.
MILF is an acronym for Mother I’d Like to F**k. It is used to address women who are attractive, especially for younger men who may desire her. These women might not be aware of young men’s interests in her and might be minding her own business. The attractiveness of such women is usually very high.
A panther is a label used to address women who are more than 60 years of age and are still able to form relationships with or have one-night stands with younger men.
Though most people find the terms like MILF, Cougar, and Puma to be insulting, it is a fact that some establishments have cougar themes where younger men who want to hook up with older women go and find someone they think is attractive. The Cougars have all the power in such a scenario as she needs to make the first move and can move in packs. Such relationships usually have no attachments or commitments, and the partners know the bare minimum about each other.
