Drool Brittania: British cougars Rita Sangha (left), 39, and Bea Cameron, 45, take in a lecture on 'the positive aspects of dating younger men' while wordlessly offering younger men a thorough tutorial on the virtues of coupling with older women.
Earlier this month we reported on the Bay Area laying claim to yet another innovation: The nation's first National Single Cougars Convention -- a night of gaiety for older women who love younger men and younger men who love to be loved by older women.

Well, Friday night in Palo Alto featured more cleavage than a butcher shop run by Eldridge Cleaver as the event came off without a hitch (remember, these women are not looking for commitment, according to the cougar movement's seminal literature).

Photographer Daniel C. Britt -- who has put in time in Iraq -- was kind enough to share his brilliant documentation of the lighter and more carefree fare at the inaugural cougar convention. Click below for more -- but beware young gentlemen. Here thar be cougars.

Gloria Navarro, 42, of Redwood Shores, is abuzz after being crowned Cougar Queen. This is not the first time Navarro turned heads; she was previously seen at a May 'Baby Boomers Convention' she was technically too young to attend. When dealing with cougardom, however, Navarro fits right in.
Following one's coronation as Cougar royalty, it's traditional to take a mad-wild spin on the dance floor
