Ms. Gentille is the award winning co-author of The Marriage of Sex & Spirit and popular internet radio host of Sex: Tantra & Kama Sutra. "I find that I am more luscious as I age. In my 30s I was a Health Educator; in my 40's I began to teach and perform Sacred Sensual Dance; now in my 50's, I am launching The Sacred Courtesan School of Feminine Mystique & Power. I receive many more compliments and enticing offers from men today than I ever did in her 20's. My motto is 'The riper the berry, the sweeter the juice'."

The National Single Cougars Convention is based on Valerie Gibson's Cougar: A Guide for Older Women Dating Younger Men. According to Ms. Gibson, "a cougar is the new breed of single, older woman—confident, sophisticated, desirable, and sexy. She knows exactly what she wants. What she wants is younger men and lots of great sex. What she doesn't want is children, cohabitation, or commitment."
"Age discrimination is perhaps the most pervasive prejudice in American Society," says Rich Gosse, Producer of the convention. "Older women, in particular, are victimized by our youth-oriented society. They are regarded as 'non-sexy'. Supposedly every American male is only attracted to nubile 20 year olds found in the centerfolds of men's magazines. The truth is that there are millions of American men who find older women attractive, and we will prove it at the National Single Cougars Convention!"
Rich Gosse is America's foremost authority on finding a romantic partner. He is the author of eight books on this topic, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to America, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find ("This is a great book!" Oprah Winfrey). His entertaining advice has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox News Live, MSNBC, Oprah, Donahue, Cosmopolitan, Newsweek, Entrepreneur, Business Week, Playboy, Playgirl, The Wall Street Journal, London Times, The Australian, The New Zealand Herald, etc. Mr. Gosse is available to the news media for interviews by calling 415/479-3800. His website is http://www.RichGosse.com.
The cost is $15/advance (by August 27) or $20/door. Overnight rooms at this boutique hotel are available at an additional cost of $99 per night. Coat & tie/dressy attire are recommended.
The highpoint of the Convention will be the Miss Cougar America Contest.
