#1: Bow Down

Younger men will bow down to thee because they perceive older women as being all knowing and full of wisdom. They will listen and treat you as their Queen and always take your advice. So if you want a man who is at your beckon call, get a young stud.

It has been said that women reach their sexual peak at 35 while men reach it at 18. That's quite an age gap. When we're raring to go, men want to go to bed — to go to sleep! A young man is a great match for an older woman's sexual appetite.

He doesn't pick up his socks from off the floor and rarely washes up. He’s young and careless! And moldable. It is much easier to help a man grow into his own when he is younger. The older we become, the more we are set in our ways. Get with a younger man and make him the man you want him to be. He’ll be bathing twice a day and washing dishes in no time!

4. Date A Younger Man: Adventure

#4: For the Love of Adventure

And I'm not just talking about sexual positions. Younger men are down for anything. They want to explore life and all of its wonders. When recently asked on Ellen why Madonna dates younger men, she said: "I’m a very adventurous person and I also have a crazy life. I’m a single mother. I have four children. I mean, you have to be pretty open-minded and adventurous to want to step into my world. People who are older, and more set in their ways, are probably not as adventurous as someone younger.”

Shakira and Gerard Pique have been together for years, but have yet to tie the knot. "When you feel complete, you don't need to get married," she said.

Younger men are perfect for women who just want to have fun. Younger men won’t pressure you into marriage. They make great bed buddies and boy toys and temporary companions. Wedding ring not needed.

This is what Jennifer Lopez claimed when asked about her lovers, including the much younger Casper Smart. "I go more for essence, for strength, the manliness," she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. A young man can have all of that and then some. So next time you’re out on the prowl, don’t turn the young bucks away. They won’t only bring fun and adventure, but they will also make you purr. Go get ‘em, Queen.
