WiredPRNews.com — www.iCougarDating.com, a cougar dating site, is co-sponsoring California’s first-ever California Cougar Convention, Friday, November 6, 2009, at the Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills, 1150 S Beverly Drive, Los Angeles CA. Cougars from throughout California are invited to compete for the title of Miss Cougar California. Cubs (younger men) in attendance will decide 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 attractive, older women, Cougars, and younger men, Cubs, can post their profiles and connect with each other. “We decided to help sponsor the first ever California Cougar Convention because we believe that this is just the type of event that will show that California Cougar woman are confident, sophisticated and very sexy women; they deserve to be profiled as such and we believe in the idea of cougar dating and love California cougar women even more.” iCougarDating.com features a banner for the California Cougar Convention on its cougar dating homepage. “We contacted Rich Gosse, Producer of the convention, and he was all for us helping promoting the event due to the success we had in promoting the National Single Cougars Convention held in August. We couldn’t turn down the opportunity to work with Rich again; he is the Godfather of singles advocacy. We believe it’s another win-win situation as our site has thousands of Cougar/Cub profiles and is seen by many people daily and is the best cougar dating community on the net.”
Lucia, “Queen of the Cougar Jungle” (KTLA TV), will deliver the Keynote Address: The Cougar Revolution. “When young men think of a Cougar,” says Lucia, “they imagine a single woman over 40 who is attractive, sexy, classy, confident, fit, independent, and healthy. True Cougars are vibrant, have glowing skin, shiny hair, and dress with class. They often look much younger than their actual age. Unfortunately, the news media is sensationalizing the Cougar Revolution by focusing on wanna-be Cougars, who don’t look healthy, often have over-tanned skin and straw hair, are overweight, show too much cleavage, are sleazy rather than sexy, and look older than their age.”
Lucia is the author of Lucia’s Lessons of Love and a syndicated columnist. She is the veteran of numerous interviews, including Dr. Phil, The Tyra Banks Show, CBS Early Show, VH1, 60 Minutes Australia, Danny Bonaduce Show, etc. Lucia is available to the news media for interviews by calling Ashley Ulrich at 562-537-6277. Lucia’s website is www.theartoflove.net.
“Age discrimination is perhaps the most pervasive prejudice in American Society,” says Rich Gosse, Producer of this convention, as well as the wildly successful National Single Cougar Convention this past August 28. “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 California Cougar 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).
