A self-proclaimed 'prolific cougar' who claims to have dated hundreds of toyboys has said she believes bedding men under 30 is the key to staying young.
Since Gaynor Evans had a fling with a 23-year-old after divorcing her second husband in 2010, she's apparently dated more than 200 younger man - insisting that toyboys are better in bed.
Evans is an author, agony aunt and businesswoman from Enfield, North London, who has been married twice.
The grandmother-of-four never dates exclusively, and says she has no intention of slowing down her love life - explaining that she's not bothered about the stigma from others, even claiming her family are totally supportive of her lifestyle, despite the fact that some men she dates are younger than her kids.
Evans, who runs a successful recruitment business, said: "I'm an older woman who has stepped outside convention - I'm very unusual.
"I'm one of the most openly prolific cougars out there. I'm not boasting about it and I know it's not for everyone, but I'm non-repentant.
"I make no apologies and I make no apologies for being a prolific cougar because it's a lifestyle choice and one I'm happy with.
"My sexual desire has never waned and I'm dating three men non-exclusively at the moment.
"Although I'm nearly 60, I feel 30.
"I won't waste time worrying whether people judge me for having great sex with a 25-year-old.
"I'm not ready to hang up my hat, I don't suit a man my age.
"Older men need looking after, but younger men just enjoy life and don't have the baggage. Older men also tend to go for younger women.
"Younger men don't want mothering despite what people would think - they make you feel in touch with the world."
Evans met her first husband when she was 18, together having three children.
She then married a man a decade younger in 1987, but the marriage ended in 2008 - leaving Evans single in her late 40s.
She started going on nights out with daughters Laura, 38, and Katie, 39, which was when Evans realised younger men seemed to be drawn to her.
She said: "I've tried the conventional route - my first husband and I married really young and we didn't really know what we were doing.
"When I met my second husband I was a single mum with three children and he was a decade younger.
"I was very busy with work and we just drifted apart.
"After being married twice I was launched back into single life. I was disillusioned. Being single in my late 40s was a shock, and I decided I had to change the ways I thought about things.
"I was terrified, as an older woman I struggled with my confidence so I reinvented myself.
"I noticed I started getting approaches from younger guys while I was out with my daughters. Initially I thought they were just being polite but then I realised they were interested. It was an eye-opener - I couldn't believe they were flirting with me.
"Eventually, I went for it with a 23-year-old. Being intimate with him was a very uplifting experience, he was very adoring and flattering.
"That spurred me on and I went from strength to strength."
Evans, who uses an app called ToyboyWarehouse.com to meet younger men, insists her sex life has never been better, despite the 25-year age gap with most of her lovers.
She also reckons being exclusive with men isn't for her, as she finds this 'unrealistic'.
Gaynor said: "I have never had a bad experience in bed with a younger man.
"The chemistry is very electric because as an older woman I'm confident - I've never been criticised.
"It's not just about the sex though. It's so far from that, it's about the conversation and the rapport. Feelings do get involved.
"I multi-date and I'm not exclusive with men because it would be unrealistic of me to expect the same from them.
"I know people who are 100 per cent faithful, but I think that a man's natural inclination is to spread his seed."
While Evans comes across critics every now and again, she insists she's happy living her life in her own unique way.
She added: "People are very small minded, it's usually the women who are most hostile, they're jealous and envious.
"Every year I question myself, and think 'am I ready to change'. But I'd rather have this freedom and live my life like I want.
"If I could be in a relationship I would but the freedom I feel today is something I don't think I would give up lightly.
"The thought of getting elder scares me, no one wants to get old, it's just a fact of life.
"My life is far more joyful and exciting than it has even been."
