When a popular tabloid gossip show reported that a young studly swimmer (Tom Daly) confided that he was dating a much older man (a high-profile talent involved with the film MILK by the name of Dustin Lance) it begged a question in the newsroom.
"Isn't the guy kind of like a Cougar who stalks down young male prey," one puzzled cub reporter wondered aloud on the titillating broadcast, in so many words.
In my day, we called the aging letches "Chicken Hawks", folks.
Or, for obvious reasons, "Sugar Daddies".
The oldest profession is still alive and well on the planet, after all!
And, how was your day?

Sonja Kinski...applauded for Daimond on Vinyl acting stint to screen December 7th! VOD & iTune dowloads!
Maybe a acting gene does run through a family's blood lines.
Filmmaker J.R. Hughto crafts a narrative of discomfiting obsession…. Kinski brings both an inquisitive guilelessness and a determined quest for control to her role," Justin Lowe praised in the Hollywood Reporter.
For example, one of my Press Contacts just notified me that Sonja Kinski is starring in an upcoming Independent film "Diamond on Vinyl".
Film buffs will be quick to point out that she is the daughter of NATASSJA KINSKI - a sensual beauty who splashed on the International scene - with the able-bodied help of mentor controversial film director Roman Polanski behind her all-the-way.
The dark sexy feature has been rustling up rave reviews on these shores.
‘Subtle but emotionally devastating at the same time," reported Mark Bell in FILM THREAT.
Ms. Kinski stars as a mysterious young woman who enters a couple's life and begins an unusual seduction.
J.R. Hughto is a film director, producer, and accomplished photographer based in Los Angeles. Hughto was raised by two renowned New York painters. His idiosyncratic approach to filmmaking and photography explores duality and performance, and challenges the limits of narrative cinema. Diamond on Vinyl is his second feature length directorial effort, and premiered at the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival.
After a successful film festival run in 2013, the ultra-voyeuristic DIAMOND ON VINYL has been available for viewing since December 1st on VOD and is now due out in select theatres December 7th.
Saturday, 12/7, 2:00pm - Anthology Film Archives, New York, NY
Sunday, 12/8, 12:00pm - Coolidge Corner Theatre, Boston, MA
Tuesday, 12/10, 7:30pm - Cinefamily, Los Angeles, CA

Tourists and locals alike swarmed into the plaza at The Venetian Hotel last night to ooh! and aah! the enchanting Christmas decorations adorning the property and take in one of the many impressive impromptu concerts being performed live on a festive stage set up for the purpose.
I happened to stroll up to the canal and catch a dazzling set consisting of string instruments.
The musicians were outfitted in exquisitely-crafted period costumes which were set off beautiful eye-catching make-up and fanciful "do's" from a bygone historical era.
On a level below, the Hotelier has installed a skating rink which was filled to capacity.
But, it was the Christmas tree - standing tall and magnificent on the glitzy Las Vegas Boulevad, that truly captivated the sight-seers.
In this normally low-key portion of the strip, the dazzling winter display is a welcome boost to the holiday spirit.
I expect thousands will be heading over to The Venetian over the next few weeks to step into the enchanting yuletide celebration which is downright heart-warming.

When I googled the word "masseur" earlier today, John Travolta's publicity still splashed across the laptop screen in the # 1 image spot!
Has the word become synonymous with Travolta, I wonder?
