A strapping child known as Jason attained Katra Lounge on Sunday, April 19, displaying a freshly ironed button-down shirt and a purposeful, doe-eyed phrase.
He surveyed the bar that is sparsely populated search regarding the older girl of their desires. “Well,” he said, “it’s a chance. You can find extremely women that are beautiful here.”
He glanced to their right at Shahla Husein, 40, and Henshi Gorodetsky, 46, who have been sitting in a tiny, candle lit alcove, directly across through the club. These were both using small pipe dresses, bracelets and bangles, and had been searching earnestly in the verile young lad.
Jason, 26, was indeed invited down that evening because of the manufacturers of a real possibility TV show now under development, en titled Cougars: NYC—not become confused with The Cougar, the brand new television Land community dating show, hosted by Vivica A. Fox; or Cougar Town, the future ABC sitcom featuring Courteney Cox. (from the time 40-something actress Demi Moore first swooned for 20-something star Ashton Kutcher, this indicates, the tired story that is older-woman-meets-younger-man through the Graduate has somehow kept scriptwriters busier than in the past!)
“It’s funny,” Jason told the day-to-day Transom, smirking. “Because we don’t discover how they discovered me.” (works out, he received the invite through their MySpace account.) “I mean, I’m into dating older females, but We nevertheless don’t understand how they knew to make contact with me. Nonetheless it worked, i assume … I’m here.”
Ms. Gorodetsky, certainly one of five flirty 40-somethings showcased regarding the forthcoming Cougars show, cut straight to the cat-and-mouse chase: “Why will it be OKAY for the 60-year-old guy to be hitting on me personally yet not one other means around?” pondered the sexy and advanced mother that is divorced of. ( perhaps maybe Not unlike Stacey Anderson, celebrity for the Cougar, Ms. Gorodetsky works in property, as an agent when it comes to prominent company Prudential Douglas Elliman.) “These will be the types of concerns i believe the show can respond to. I do believe it will assist. Our show just isn’t just like the TV Land one that’s away right now. That’s really bad, very cheesy. Ours just isn’t like this. It is not really a show that is dating. It’s a real possibility show.”
“Let’s produce a brand new term for cougar, let’s allow it to be at this time!” interjected her Cougars colleague, Ms. Husein. “I’m really embarrassed by the word.”
Ms. Gorodetsky consented. “It’s actually denigrating, and in addition being fully a cougar signifies that we’re in the prowl. We’re not! Dudes show up to us!”
“Right. I turn a complete great deal of dudes down!” included Ms. Husein. “I’d instead be described as A persian cat,” she purred.
“Well, she’s Persian,” Ms. Gorodetsky described. “I’d be a Panther.”
Younger Jason, meanwhile, ended up being nonplussed by the expression “cub.”
“I don’t require a label, it is all simply normal in my opinion,” he shrugged.

“I feel just like most people that can come right right here are extremely developed,” Ms. Gorodetsky stated. “I suggest understand this man!” she stated, motioning toward Jason, who smiled. “Plus, it is not exactly about dating more youthful dudes in the show, it is more about the truth that we could. Therefore, we’re exploring that situation at these kinds of events.”
Just how do they feel once the concern of age pops up?
“Whenever somebody asks me personally just just how old i will be, we question them just exactly just how money that is much make,” Ms. Husein stated by having a Cheshire grin.
Another Cougars starlet, Hayne Suthon, 52, huddled with a boyish Justin Timberlake look-alike wearing an open shirt—no chest hair—and black beanie in a nearby alcove.
“The reason i actually do all this publicity is mainly because I’m within the restaurant company,” noted Ms. Suthon, owner of fortunate Cheng’s. “Whatever is good promotion for me personally is great promotion for my restaurants.”
Still, Ms. Suthon is not thrilled utilizing the C-word, either. “The term ‘cougar’ suggests a double standard,” she said, “and ‘cub’? We crack up about that. It is demeaning to your man. Why can’t the guy be worth their own sodium?
“But,” she added, “I’m a publicity whore; should you want to phone me personally a cougar, do it now!”
