Cougars Love Adam Lambert!

Cougars Love Adam Lambert!

Newsweek‘s Joan Raymond gives a lengthy explanation as to why cougars (older women seeking younger men) love American Idol glam rocker Adam Lambert. Here are two choice paragraphs from the article:

“In terms of biology, Adam Lambert‘s attractiveness is kind of bizarre. Some research shows that women like square jaws and deep brows—iconic masculine traits—when they’re looking for a fling. But we like more feminine traits when we’re looking for The One, the long-term mate. Lambert has a little bit of both going on for him, as anyone who saw his version of Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ can attest.

“It may also go back to our childhood, as all things psychoanalytic seem to do. According to [psychoanalyst Dr. Gail Saltz], buried deep inside all of us is the childhood desire to be able to have everything and anything, whenever you want. So part of our fascination with Mr. Lambert is that we may want to be like him. ‘[Lambert] is the poster child for having it all,’ says Saltz. ‘Men want him, women want him, and that ambiguity is as hot as hell.’”
