The lust boat gets ready to sail

Plans are afoot for the third international Cougar Cruise to set sail for the Bahamas.

For those not in the know, a cougar is a predatory carnivorous animal which relentlessly pursues its prey.  A cougar is also a type of large cat, but this cruise is targeting those other cougars, older women who have a liking and a yearning for younger men.

Not that I have a problem with older women having relationships with younger men.  My mother was ten years older than my father and they had a very long and loving relationship. It’s just that I can imagine the furore if a cruise was arranged which deliberately tried to team up older men with significantly younger women, there’s be accusations that they were just dirty old men and perverts.  It seems that in the gender stakes, all is not equal.

The two organisers of the Cougar Cruise, The Singles Travel Company and The Society of Single Professionals (how do you become a professional single???), are targeting women in their 40s and 50s and men in their 20s and 30s who want three nights of bacchanalian fun comprised of dining, dancing and partying.

There’s a trend these days for cruise lines to organise theme cruises, but for many of the onboard relationships it will probably end up being like a cruise to nowhere.
