Most Helpful Guy

What Guys Said 5

  • Older women.

    Women in general seeking a more mature, relationship ready guy and men seeking women that have plenty of fertile years left makes it a much more common scenario.

  • Child grooms are not as abundant as child brides around the world, and it was common practice for American men to take 8-9 year old wives in the days before our more modern age of consent laws.

    It is more frowned upon now, for there to be big age gaps, at least speaking of the USA, due to the values of our predominately egalitarian culture.

    Its not really taboo, because men are supposed to hold power and within a patriarchal society sexual relationships tend to contain a hierarchical power dynamic, so the idea of someone of lower status (a woman) would make a much more fitting subordinate than the other way around.

    Just listen to pop music of the 50's through 80's "girl.. you'll be a woman soon"

    If it was so taboo, there would not be so many representations of it in pop culture. They'd be banned.

  • Older men who date younger women are definitely looked down on more than the reverse. People see an older woman dating a younger man and just smile but an older man dating a younger woman is seen as a pervert and a predator.

  • Older women is so weird that people have made a name for it. Men are so average that nobody has made a name for the man (they only make it for the girl dating the man)
