Description:

1st Printing. 320 pages. Published in 2011. Photographic Diary on subject with accompanying text. One of the hottest erotic photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. A brilliant production by Taschen: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. The spine has a cougar-like furry texture. Photographs and text by Liz Earls. Contribution by Dian Hanson, who made the controversial book possible. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Liz Earls' "Days of The Cougar". A surprisingly affecting (and necessarily voyeuristic) photographic-cum-text exploration of the "cougar" lifestyle. Unlike being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, which are not "alternative" lifestyles but subconscious psychological mutations, "cougar" is a conscious choice that also happens to be compatible with Nature: Older women and younger men are, sexually and emotionally, the ideal couple, except that society would not have it because, as Nature has also decided, older women can no longer have babies. A "cougar" is "a 35+ year old female who is on the hunt for a younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male". The most famous are Madonna and Demi Moore, both ravishingly beautiful. Though not famous or beautiful, Liz Earls has had more than her fair share of cubs, enough to fill a book. "Documents her sexual experiences with dozens of men. Explores every aspect of her lust for young men in color and black-and-white photos, accompanied by diary entries, emails, and text messages shared with her eager prey. Reworks our notions of age and attraction. It will inspire anyone feeling trapped by society's expectations" (Publisher's blurb). "My life had become a playground, and it was exactly what I wanted" (Liz Earls). Good for her. An absolute "must-have" title for Liz Earls and erotic photography collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 250 plates. One of the most accomplished photographers of the nude and the sex act. A flawless copy. ISBN 3836519798. Bookseller Inventory # 17153

Synopsis:

Through the cougar's eyes: the road to sexual liberation

"My life had become a playground, and it was exactly what I wanted," writes photographer Liz Earls in the introduction to this groundbreaking book detailing her transformation from middle-aged, overweight Human Resources director to sexual adventurer, self-portraitist, and unabashed cougar.

A cougar, as defined by the Urban Dictionary, is "A 35+ year old female who is on the hunt for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male." For Earls that "anything" must include collaborating in her quest to capture authentic human passion. Since losing 100 pounds at age 40, quitting her straight job, and embarking on a career as an erotic photographer, Earls has documented her sexual experiences with dozens of men. Her work has been described as a midlife version of Natacha Merritt?s Digital Diaries, as intensely personal, and as sexually unbounded. She speculates that a woman who has as much sex as she does?four to six times a day with multiple partners?creates an aura that draws new men to her. It seems to be true, as Days of the Cougar graphically illustrates in over 250 photographs of Earls seducing men from 19 to 32 years of age. When she decided to devote the second half of her life to pleasure, Earls realized that, "If I just shot on the sidelines as an observer it would be boring. I had to feel it too, to put everything I?d recently learned about my sexuality into it." She never deviates from this path, exploring every aspect of her lust for young men in graphic color and black and white photos, accompanied by diary entries, e-mails, and text messages shared with her eager prey. Sexy, shocking, and surprisingly loving, Days of the Cougar reworks our notions of age and attraction, and will inspire anyone feeling trapped by society?s expectations.
