Quick correct: Hefner is STILL alive. Google is not always accurate ... nor your friend.

Middle-aged Hefner:

Old Hefner:

Shouldn't make fun of the dead and/or religion but, in one of the world religions, doesn't going to heaven imply 72 virgins? Or will he "stock up" before leaving us?

At any rate, the young girl to middle-aged professional husband thing is seen again in "American Beauty" (1999), so don't sweat it. She makes herself accessible to him (her school friend's Dad) and then has to "fess up" that she's low mileage, as in zero mileage.

Whether you believe that to be true or not Its not like we see the opposite when it comes to men. Aside from George Clooney and maybe denzel(but not nearly as much) most of the men prized in this world and seen as "hot" are young for the most part just like women. Look at the annual hottest or sexiest lists And I see more older women (40 and up)on female lists then I see The oppisite on male lists. It's really no different, but the difference is I never hear men complain about women just wanting younger guys like I hear women complain about men wanting younger women.

As one of the mods said in another thread I remember, youth is prized in general. It's not just female youth or male youth, its both.
No, older men CAN be seen as hot as long as they're not fat, in greater numbers than women. I've seen in my life that women, even young ones, thought I was most attractive about in my 40s (we're not talking about sixties or older).

I've seen this all my life, women tend on average to like older men, while men tend on average to like women about as young as they can legally get them. Notice that I did NOT say, in every case down through history. I said, "on average".

There are reasonable evolutionary explanations for that. Women's eggs are most fertile and least damaged when they're young, before their 30s. In the past, men who bred with women of that age group were more likely to have viable offspring to pass along their genes. Men's sperm are better preserved to an older age than women's eggs, so she gains from breeding with the older males who might offer better protection of the offspring due to experience.

Some older men are hot....& some younger men are hot.
I've dated older & younger & have formulated what I need, lol
If only I could get a guy whose got the endurance & stamina of a 30 year old,
the looks of a 45 year old,
the wisdom & maturity of a 50 year old
& the body of a 25 year old-
all rolled into one smoking hot lover......
I can dream

We've heard the evolution theories on every thread that remotely relates to women's or men's aging, Woof. But the fact is, that most mature, well-adjusted men want women in their age-range. And the argument about men's sperm preserving better is outdated now. They've done studies that show that men's sperm get damaged and deformed with age, so there's a higher risk of the child being born with medical challenges of one sort or another. Old theories die hard, though, I guess.

Any time I ask a woman the reasons why she likes/prefers/dates older men the words I usually hear are things like

Mature
Financially stable
Loyal
Experienced
Respectful

Etc. These words come way before hot or sexy ever do(if they come at all).

But when I ask men who about older women, hot is one of the first 2 or 3 things to come out of there mouths. I see older women viewed as hot more then I ever do older guys.

Well I've always said that's one advantage we have. As a man, I can have kids at pretty much any age I want so I can delay fatherhood if I please. I have no "biological clock". The other day there was a man at 96 who had a child. It's crazy lol

The world's oldest dad has another son - at 96 | GulfNews.com

While I agree alot of older men like younger women(like most men), they are rarely able to pull these women because they just don't look good enough. Unless your like Hef for example.

Money can you get a nice gold diggin wife (AKA the equivalent of a prostitute) but it has very little to do with actual attraction
I get the feeling that these days, the whole dynamic between Hef and his girls are contractual for marketing/business reasons. I don't believe for a minute he's sleeping with any of them.

OMG, when I was in my teens and twenties, I always had a thing for "older" guys and it had nothing to do with any of the things you listed. I was just sexually attracted to them. I viewed them as handsome...their faces, their bodies.


I don't consider him old (just older than me by more than 10 years), but Mike Rowe is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!


And these days, 20 to 30 year old men just don't catch my attention. 40 plus does.
