WiredPRNews.com — iCougarDating.com is co-sponsoring America’s first-ever National Single Cougars Convention, Friday, August 28, 2009, at Dinah’s Garden Hotel, 4261 El Camino Real, Palo Alto CA featuring the Miss Cougar America. Cougars from throughout America are invited to compete for the title with Cubs (younger men) in attendance deciding who wins the contest. Adults of all ages are welcome.
iCougarDating.com is “where the web’s hottest cougars hang out”. iCougarDating.com is a “Cougar Dating” website where older women, Cougars, and younger men, Cubs, can post their profiles and connect with each other. “We decided to help sponsor The National Single Cougars Convention because we believe that this is just the type of event that will show that Cougars are confident, sophisticated and very sexy women; they deserve to be profiled as such.” iCougarDating.com features a banner for The National Single Cougars Convention on its homepage. “We contacted Rich Gosse, Producer of the convention, and he was all for us promoting the event. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to team up with; we believe it’s a win-win situation as our site has thousands of Cougar/Cub profiles and is seen by many people daily.”
The National Single Cougars Convention is based on Valerie Gibson’s Cougar: A Guide for Older Women Dating Younger Men. According to Ms. Gibson, “a cougar is the new breed of single, older woman¬, confident, sophisticated, desirable, and sexy. She knows exactly what she wants. What she wants is younger men and lots of great sex.”
“Age discrimination is perhaps the most pervasive prejudice in American Society,” says Rich Gosse, Producer of the convention. “Older women, in particular, are victimized by our youth-oriented society. They are regarded as ‘non-sexy’. Supposedly every American male is only attracted to nubile 20 year olds found in the centerfolds of men’s magazines. The truth is that there are millions of American men who find older women attractive, and we will prove it at the National Single Cougars Convention!”
Rich Gosse is America’s foremost authority on finding a romantic partner. He is the author of eight books on this topic, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to America, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find (“This is a great book!” Oprah Winfrey). His entertaining advice has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox News Live, MSNBC, Oprah, Donahue, Cosmopolitan, Newsweek, Entrepreneur, Business Week, Playboy, Playgirl, The Wall Street Journal, London Times, The Australian, The New Zealand Herald, etc.
The highpoint of the Convention will be the Miss Cougar America Contest. One cougar at the convention will be awarded the title and prizes, which will include her choice of the upcoming Halloween Singles Cruise or the Spring Baja Singles Cruise, courtesy of www.SinglesTravelCompany.com. The winner will be a woman who is present at the Convention, legally single, and at least 40 years of age.
The Convention begins at 7:30pm with complimentary appetizers, courtesy of Trader Vic’s, as long as they last. The Keynote Address is at 8pm. The Grand Finale is a giant dance party, 9pm-Midnight. At approximately 11pm, one cougar will be crowned Miss Cougar America.
