If I had a hefty allowance from a generous benefactor, though, I figured that I could take the leap comfortably. To overcome my reservations about walking the line between dating and prostitution, I told myself that any such concerns were the result of societal conditioning.The idea of wealthy older people supporting struggling younger ones is nothing revolutionary, after all—look what Peggy Guggenheim did for Jackson Pollock or the Tuohys did for N. The idea that mixing money and mating is inherently bad, I reasoned, was a fallacy based on our collective obsession with moralizing sex.
It is only natural for males to target cues to fertility such as youth and beauty, and for females to be drawn to displays of resources.
Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.
To get a view into the male mind after 60, I sat down with dating coach, Lisa Copeland for a quick chat.
BIZARRE letters sent to a woman containing “deeply disturbing” sexualised chat turned out to have been written by a man she was briefly in a relationship with almost 30 years earlier.
Durham Crown Court heard the letters had been posted to the woman’s workplace, opened at its sorting office and read by her line manager – much to her embarrassment.
