The photographer: Liz Earls was born in 1961, and raised in Alameda, California, New Zealand and Australia. After an early marriage and two children she worked at various office jobs, before embarking on her new life of sexual license and erotic photography in 2005. Her home base is currently Los Angeles, where she documents her adventures on her website fantasycapture.com.

I had heard the buzz on 'Days of the Cougar' for quite some time and curiously anticipated the release of her book. 'Days of the Cougar' chronicles the recent life and times of Liz Earls,an erotic photographer in her late forties. She had found herself in a bad marriage, overweight due to the birth of two children and seemingly with no purpose in life, spiraling down to who knows what.
Liz decided to leave her husband, get herself in shape, embrace her new look, and have fun! She has a professional photographer's expertise, and decided to combine her lust for life with her passion for photography. Liz documents sexually explicit adventures with a "pride" of young willing virile "cubs"...and they love her for it.
The term "cougar" refers to a mature woman who attracts and hunts down young "cubs", both parties getting the maximum enjoyment from the encounter. According to the photos and brief stories on each adventure, this was enthusiastically accomplished. It is also documented in three languages.
I found "Days of the Cougar" fascinating on more than one level. Women of an age where society begins to put them on a shelf and forget about them should read, enjoy and embrace Liz, and her book for proving, you are never too old to have fun, start over, or reinvent yourself.

I was not only impressed and turned on by the artistic yet gritty nature of the photographs - but of her story too. My curiosity continues to grow and wonder what she is doing now, and how the relationships that help launch her into this world - if they are still in her life? I thought it was brilliant and I have absolute admiration for someone so "balsy" to take on the world and do it on her own terms! Every woman...and man should read this book! Carpe diem babe!
First I have to say that I do know Liz Earls and I am briefly featured in her new book. That said I'd like to point out that as a photographer she is rather special, and as a fulfiller of clients sexual fantasies and fethishes, whatever they may be, Liz is really dedicated and passionate about making them both memorable for not only the client, but for herself and us as well.
To say she has a dream job is a massive understatement. When she switched from being a routine, married- sex housewife to a sexual predator, a cougar, Liz became reborn and totally liberated. In charge of her own destiny, one that has taken her completely around the world. A world of latex and lust, golden showers and glass dildos. From New York to Hong Kong, London to San Francisco, Liz Earls runs up the airmiles and the sperm count. Single guys and gals, married, gay, transvestites and transsexuals, whether they want love or humiliation, Liz provides the right setting where they can really be themselves. Lofts, hotel rooms, their own homes, with props and costumes or without anything, she fulfills their lustful fantasies.
My late dear friend and the original cougar, milf, sexual mature, whatever label you prefer; porn legend Juliet AUNT PEG Anderson, had assisted Liz several times. Even at age 70, Juliet was a sexual presence who always gave her all whether on-screen or off. And through Liz, she was still performing her oral and special massage skills, right up to her untimely death. Liz Earls has that same passion for sex as Juliet had. Indeed the photo sessions are a fantastic sexual vehicle for both her and her numerous and very satisfied clients. Again -the perfect job!
DAYS OF THE COUGAR is certainly not for prudes.Read more ›
