ALL ABOUT HATTIE
Hattie’s career as an Anti-Aging Therapist began after winning first prize in Roseland’s Over 50 Bathing Suit Beauty Contest at the age of 52. Founder of New York’s School for Creative Movement and Consumer Advocate for Organic Food, Hattie set out to prove that a Holistic style of living can create life-long youth and sexuality.
A successful psychotherapist and dance teacher, her two cutting-edge books RetroAge: The Miraculous Program for Life Long Youth and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Looking and Feeling Younger launched Hattie’s life mission to transform society’s negative view of aging. Appearing in a her contest-winning bathing suit on TV had Regis exclaim, “There she goes, an inspiration to all of America! True to Regis’ words, Hattie went on inspire others to take aging into their own hands, as she has done for over 25 years!
At 74, modeling in a gold bathing suit for a Dolce & Gabbana ad for VOGUE, Harper’s, Vanity Fair and W, seated next to a 20s something hunk, she was dubbed,“America’s Top Cougar.” It didn’t take long before this seductive title was picked up by the media, and, at 75, she starred in the TLC series, “Strange Sex: Cougars and Cubs.” Chosen by Gotham Magazine as one of six New York’s Most Natural Beauties, Hattie has vowed never to have plastic surgery or shots. Her Hattietudes“True Beauty glows from within” and “The opposite of old isn’t young… it’s NEW!” say it all.
Hattie’s memoir, Sex and the Single Senior: A Cougar’s Search for Love gives hope to women of all ages not to give up. She’s at work on her next book, Everything You Want To Know About Aging… But Are Afraid to Admit!” aimed at facing and overcoming the challenges of aging.
Her recent appearance on TLC’s “Extreme Cougar Wives” proves that you’re never to old to be desirable… and desired.
And who doesn’t desire that!
For decades, ecologically-minded Americans have sounded the warning that unless something is done about emissions, our weather conditions will become dangerously distorted. What was the reaction of politicians? They treated these whistle blowers as anything from unrealistic alarmists to, of all things, Socialists!
With the horror of Hurricane Sandy, coupled with photographic proof that icebergs are melting at an alarming rate, attention is finally being paid. Regretably, it may actually be too late.
That title is obviously about sex and aging. Yes, frequent, satisfying sex no matter how “old” you are! I should know. At 76, I have maintained my sexuality, despite society’s disdain for the desirability of older people.
I’d like to share my secrets with you, though several of them may even be embarrassing. Usually it’s a turn off to speak about biology. But rather than sweeping it under the rug, it’s essential to face all aspects of sex and aging to remain sexual and vital for a lifetime.
1. For starters –Masturbate. If you need a boost, use a vibrator and/or watch erotic videos. Orgasms are not just for the young.
2. Keep your orifices totally clean. Even though women are told they’re self-cleaning, I don’t believe that’s true. I recommend washing externally and internally with diluted Dr. Bonner’s lavender soap, scooting fingers up to the cervix to make sure it’s squeaky clean. For both sexes, washing and thoroughly rinsing the anus is essential.
3. For women – If you’re dry or too tender, try a topical bio-identical hormone cream prescribed by a doctor that helps you keep moist and “stretchy.” This is a far safer form of hormone replacement than pills, shots or patches.
4. For both sexes – Add the herb MACA which doesn’t contain any hormones, yet helps to maintain balanced hormone levels. Additionally, it has been proven to enhance desire and re-energize the entire body.
5. Refuse to buy into the brainwashing that we elders get from the media that aging takes away your desire and your desirability!
But I want to add that being sexual for a lifetime does not come (cum) naturally… IT TAKES WORK! I invite you to join me in being sexually active and youthful for your entire life.

WITH HATTIE NO TOPIC IS TABOO
I can’t remember any time in my life that I wasn’t TERRIFIED of aging. In my inspiring book, RetroAge: 4 Steps to a Younger YOU! , I share how my disgust turned into determination.
It became my life mission to transform aging on the Planet… a vow I made at Landmark Education’s Advanced course. I stood and proclaimed this vision for my future, and sure enough, I’m achieving this loftly goal in wildly unexpected ways!
Because of my personal dedication to Anti-Aging, at 74, I was chosen to model in a GOLD BATHING SUIT for a Dolce & Gabbana ad in VOGUE, Harper’s, W and Vanity Fair. The photog, Steven Klein, instructed a 20 something hunk to sit next to me ad look at me adoringly, which he did.
VOILA! From then on, the word “Cougar” got attached to me, and I’ve been featured all over the world — from France to Peru to Dominican Republic as the “Quintessential Cougar”. This has been terrific because I can now inspire people everywhere to honor and enjoy the aging process.
What precisely do I mean?
I’m urging/inspiring everyone to follow my lead by doing whatever’s necessary to be youthful, sexual, vibrant at every age! When you purchase my book, RetroAge: 4 Steps to a Younger YOU! from Amazon and follow the 4 Steps, you’ll learn my secrets to being youthful and sexual at every age! YES, the life-long youth you deserve can be yours!
How marvelous it will feel when you join the countless men and women throughout the world who are taking aging into their own hands and transforming it from awful to awesome!
And… believe me… it’s FUN!
Who ever came up with the ridiculous rule to stop wearing white after Labor Day? Carried to it’s stupid extremes… woe be it to the bride who marries after that venerable week-end.
It’s about time we started questioning and defying commonly accepted, but super-stupid rules, and how they imprison and limit us to values that are no longer relevant. Check it out. How many time-worn stereotypes are you following? For me, a stunning, sexy Senior, I’ve had to counter the rules surrounding how a “mature” woman should, look, dress and behave.
Going further in that vein, it isn’t only old rules that are confining and downright dumb… freshly minted ones are too! One of the beauties of being in America is that we are free to chose how we believe and express ourselves. This is becoming even more relevant as gay marriage becomes the law of the land, and young men are actively pursuing older women. (Had to get that one in!)
It behooves each and every one of us to be resolute in defining and defending our choices. Naturally without hurting or maligning those of others. Though initially I was incensed at being pressured to follow the rules, I now revel in being liberated from them.
And, boy oh boy, do I have gorgeous white clothing to wear from today onward. And when I see you wearing it too, we’ll both smile. So, in a way, rules are great. We get to break them!
Courage is contagious!
This headline should clue you into my style of viewing sex for older adults. Donâ€™t you think itâ€™s about time we stopped behaving as if sex is only for the young? Thatâ€™s the dreary message weâ€™ve been handed, and I, for one, want to shatter that ridiculous idea.
A little over a year ago, I was featured in a skin-tight gold bathing suit for a Dolce & Gabbana ad. I thought nothing of it. After all, I swim almost every day, and have been doing it for over 25 years. Suddenly I was tagged as a Cougar, and instead of being derided, I was adulated. I practically became a public service announcement for the beauty and desirability of the older woman.Â Suited me just fine! (bathing suited)
And who was most pleased by this super sexy senior? The young, thatâ€™s who. Every day I get emails and am stopped on the street for hugsâ€¦and even autographs. Can you imagine how great it is to hear that they are thrilled and inspired and want to be like me when they grow up.
Iâ€™m pleased to be on the front lines of this sexual revolution. More and more older women are dropping their shame about being sexual (and their underwear too!). Theyâ€™re shortening their skirts, flaunting their cleavage, and loving their mature bodies.
Inappropriate? Who says so?
And whatâ€™s moreâ€¦ who cares?
Ever since my recent appearance on The Learning Channelâ€™s â€œSTRANGE SEXâ€ series, Iâ€™ve been deluged with emails asking me to share some of my experiences dating younger men. This Cougar phenomenon seemed to come out of the blue, as if we older women havenâ€™t been enjoying ourselves for years. Talk about coming out of the closet! I never felt like I was in one! For me, it all felt natural and fun.
Here are several vignettes from my years of single sex that I think youâ€™ll enjoy:
He: Ever slept with a cab driver?
Me: Once, a few years ago
He: It was me. Donâ€™t pay your fare!
GUY ON BIKE
Biker:Â (stopping me on the street) Youâ€™re Hattie arenâ€™t you?
Me: Yes. Iâ€™m Hattie
He: Been screwing lately?
Me: Nope. Iâ€™m celibate.
He: (riding away) â€¦ waste of a national treasure!
TV Producer: I just broke up with my girlfriend.
Me: Why are you calling me?
He:Â I want to take you to bed.
Me: Could you get me on TV instead?
AT LUNCH WITH GIRLFRIEND
Me: (to friend) Iâ€™d love to make love at the Plaza today.â€
She: Good luck.
Out of Town Salesman: I saw your ad in New York Magazine. Would you join me this Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â afternoon at the Plaza? Iâ€™m in room 1212.
Me: Cool. See you in 15 minutes. By the way, whatâ€™s your name?
Me: (commenting to man at store window) Arenâ€™t those shoes gorgeous?
He: Youâ€™re gorgeous
Me: Your place or mine?
He: Would you consider modeling for a magazine shoot?
Me: Do I have to pose nude?
He: Yes, I hope thatâ€™s okay.
Me: Just what I had in mind!
Guy arriving with suitcase: This is filled with the greatest sex toys.
Me: Actually, Iâ€™m not into that scene.
He: (leaving) Pity, guess Iâ€™ll have to play with them myself.
Me:Â (phoning a former lover)
Itâ€™s Hattie, how about coming to my place tonight?â€
He: Iâ€™m married, but that doesnâ€™t matter.
Me: Well, it matters to me.
Artist on subway: Iâ€™m really into older women.
Me: And if I were 20, youâ€™d tell me youâ€™re only into 20 year olds!
CARIBBEAN FASHION STATEMENT
Me: (draping my pearls over my dateâ€™s erection)
Iâ€™ve always liked basic black and pearls!
It has always bothered me that aging in America is viewed as a downward spiralâ€¦ and a repulsive one at that! Itâ€™s no wonder that the younger set clamored for Betty White to appear on Saturday Night Live. Iâ€™m thrilled to be joining Betty to inspire the young, and the young at heart to take aging into their own hands and make it an exciting life-affirming adventure.
Here I am, in my 70â€™s and Betty in her 80â€™sâ€¦two older women who are showing the world that aging doesnâ€™t have to rob you of your youth and vitality. In Bettyâ€™s case, she is a bundle of energy, bubbling and enthusiasticâ€¦taking on new challenges with courage and joy. In my case sexuality got added to the mix. (â€œStir It Upâ€ as Bob Marley would say!)
It all started when I got divorced at 48, after being married for 25 years. I began dating again and before I knew it, younger men were pursuing me. That was well before the word â€œCougarâ€ was popular. It came as a shock to me that aging did not take away my sexualityâ€¦and that miracle inspired me to share my secrets. How great it feels to see young people smiling and actually enjoying the prospect of aging!
At first, I felt a bit weird about sleeping with young men. In my day that was called â€œcradle snatching.â€ With the passage of time, I became more accepting of the older woman/younger man phenomenon. This encouraged me to write my memoir, â€œSex and the Single Senior: A Cougarâ€™s Search for Love.â€
Out of the blue I got called to star in a series for The Learning Channel, â€œStrange Sex.â€ Naturally I was concerned that the title was a turn-off. But, it had quite the opposite effect. Within days I was stopped on the street, and my inbox was filled with letters as people shared that the show had inspired them not to fear aging. Now, following Betty Whiteâ€™s lead, older women (and men too) can confidently fulfill their desires and follow their hearts, no matter what society says.
Aging has taught me that true beauty emerges from withinâ€¦ a lesson that lightens my heart, energizes my body, and puts a smile on my face, with or without a few wrinkles!
NEWS FLASH!!! According to recent accounts, there are 96 million people in America who are single! To put it another way 43% of people over 18 donâ€™t have mates. And yours truly is one of them.
Frankly, being part of the great uncoupled is a horrid proposition. (YES, I get plenty of those!) After my divorce 25 years ago, I was certain wedding bells would be ringing for me within a year. Well, the bells rang for my former husband, but theyâ€™ve remained silent for me.
I have no regrets about the dissolution of my 25 year marriage, but being a single woman really sucks. According to the approach put forward by feminists and liberated women, I should be reveling in my freedom. Iâ€™m not. Sharing a life with a beloved partner is, for me, one of the greatest blessings on Earth. I wonder how many of the 96 million out there share my view.
So, with this vile statistic staring me in the face, I decided to create a mantra to help magnetize my man:
â€œA beautiful relationship with my beloved is about to manifestâ€
I hope it works for me, and if/when it does, Iâ€™ll let you know. Then, if you chose to lower that percentage, go ahead and do so. Iâ€™m with ya!
380 MILLION EGGS have just shown up as being contaminated. That word pretty much spells out that they are dangerous for human consumption. Is this a surprise? No way!
This certainly isnâ€™t news to any of us who are involved in a Holistic lifestyle. The treatment of chickens is deplorable. They are deprived of light, fed chemical and antibiotics, stuffed into tiny cages with their fecal matter as carpeting. Ugh!
Donâ€™t wanna ruin it for you, but the next time you order an omelet, consider that the chicken that provided the eggs was a slaveâ€¦.yes, a slave.
â€œOkay, Hattie,â€ you may say, â€œwhy are you ruining our enjoyment of delicious omelets?â€
Well, Iâ€™m not. Iâ€™m offering an alternative – ORGANIC EGGS FROM ORGANIC FARMERS! Iâ€™m saying that the next time youâ€™re thinking of buying or eating eggs, THINK TWICE. Then tell the market, restaurant or whomever is responsible for purchasing eggs, that you wonâ€™t order anything made with them, until they can assure you that they come from organic sources.
Donâ€™t let the greedy, destructive agribusiness feather their nests with money made from raising tortured animals. Maybe these little eggs are saying, â€œYou didnâ€™t treat my mommy right, so what do you expect?â€
What can we expect unless we speak up?
Speak up! More and more of us are doing itâ€¦and changing the worldâ€™s health with our words.
