The most commonly-accepted definition of a cougar is a woman 40 years of age or older who exclusively pursues very young men. Some feel that a cougar can be as young as 35, but women of this age would not be viewed as cougars unless their sexual conquests were no older than 25; the ten-year age difference seems to be an unspoken but accepted minimum between partners.
Typically, cougars prey upon men almost young enough to be their sons.
In The Graduate (1967), a married mother pursues a much younger man (21 in the film).
On the soap opera Days of Our Lives, character Eve Donovan is a cougar, repeatedly sleeping with the much younger JJ Deveraux.
