September May

Welcome to my page. I am a 47-year-old heterosexual woman living independently in Toronto who has long been a fan of older women. There is a beauty, intelligence and inherent eroticism that only an older woman can embody, and there is a very particular breed of men out there who “get” it.

I am deeply committed to helping to change how older women are perceived in North America, and to dispeling the stigma around aging. I am not so much interested in the stereotype of the cougar, or of 40-something women trying to look and act like 20 or 30-somethings – unless it is part of a bigger discussion on aging or sexuality in our culture. I am interested in the authentic older woman.

Any conversation, public or private, that engages these topics are ones I am eager to participate in. The sensuality and wisdom of older women is something younger women can only dream of, and I challenge anyone who suggests that this is merely romantic idealism.
