Famous Ephebophile: Bradley Cooper

38-year-old Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper reclined on his girlfriend, 21-year-old Vogue model Suki Waterhouse, in a Paris park last Sunday while he fittingly read a copy Nabokov's Lolita(Calling Cooper an ephebophile is a bit of a stretch, but he has been dating Waterhouse since she was 20; so, that's close enough.)

Baby Love (1968): Teleiophile Rejects Teenage, "Stupid Little Boy!"


Teenage boys/young men and middle-aged women are generally opposed to age-discrepant relationships. The main reason being the competition factor:
  • teenage boys/young men vs. middle-aged men over nymphets
  • nymphets vs. middle-aged women over middle-aged men
I'll add here that, in general, the only middle-aged males that you'll find that are opposed to age-discrepant relationships are those that haven't had the privilege of being propositioned by a nymphet. 

In Baby Love (1968), which is a British movie based on the novel by Tina Chad Christian, Luci (Linda Hayden), a 15-year-old nymphet and teleiophile, seduces the mother and attempts to seduce the father of her adoptive family after her mother commits suicide. However, Luci  repeatedly rejects the advances of, Nick, the teenage son of the family. 

"You stupid little boy...grow up!" Luci demanded.
"You like old men like my father." Nick conceded reluctantly. 

Linda Hayden was 15-years-old when Baby Love was filmed and was nude in multiple scenes; however, they were non-sexual scenes and thus "permissible" despite her age.

Simon Cowell's Lauren Silverman and Her English Teacher



The only story that could overshadow the news that celebrity judge Simon Cowell got his friend's wife, Lauren Silverman, pregnant is that Silverman had a previous affair with Steve Lewis, her married high school English teacher. 


Allegedly, Silverman was a 16-year-old nymphet when she and her 26-year-old English teacher had a two-month sexual affair that included, à la Pretty Little Liarsmake-out sessions in his private school classroom. 

The affair, which allegedly took place in the mid-1990s, ended after Silverman's mother reported it to the headmaster. Lewis was fired and Silverman transferred to another private school. 

Lewis denies that he had an affair with Silverman; however, he does admit to flirting and a "drunken phone call."

SHAMELESS (2011): Teen Admits to Oral & Lesbian Sex and Orgies by 8th Grade and "Rides" Mother's BF on Webcam

Karen's Confession at the Purity Ball

I wrote about raunchy teen behavior in The Allure of Nymphets to give examples of bawdy teen conduct portrayed in popular culture and to relate that nymphets possess desires to have sex as badly as (older) adults. Feminists denied the fact that young girls desired to be sexually active and blamed the nymphet's promiscuity on "dirty old men"; thus, the age-of-consent laws were born near the turn of the nineteenth century. 

However, Mary E. Odem shared in Delinquent Daughters: Protecting and Policing Adolescent Female Sexuality in the United States, 1885-1920 that despite the implementation of age of consent laws, the level of teen promiscuity got so bad that during World War I the military had to implement a five-mile radius moral zone around military bases where alcohol and teen prostitution were prohibited. Despite those measures, over the course of the war thousands of young girls were apprehended for illicit activities, prostitution and suspicion of spreading venereal diseases.

In episode ten of the first season of Shameless, Karen, a high school sophomore, confessed at a Purity Ball that at the age of thirteen she started having oral sex with three or four boys. And she confessed that she was involved in orgies and lesbian strap-on dildo sex by the 8th grade. 

Karen was so distraught after her father called her a whore in front of the other Purity Ball attendees that she decided to get revenge by creating Daddyz Girl, an online diary, and have a live sex show with her mother's married boyfriend.

But what prompted the trip to the Purity Ball, where teen's confessed their past erotic 
escapades, is just as revealing. In the pilot episode of Shameless, Karen's father caught her performing oral sex under the kitchen table while her mother chopped veggies only three feet away,

I would argue that Karen's raunchy behavior is yet another example of art imitating life.

Ray's A CERTAIN AGE: 14-Year-Old Loses Virginity to 31-Year-Old


The back cover of the novel A Certain Age by 17-year-old Rebecca Ray reads "When I was fourteen I lost my virginity to a twenty-seven-year-old man. And on a school night too."

However, at the age of 11, before the unnamed submissive protagonist lost her virginity to Oliver, who turned out to be 31, she used to pretend that her best friend was raping her, which counter-intuitively isn't an unheard of fantasy for some females. 

At the age of 13 she said that she "... started letting boys feel me up. There was a whole bunch of them, four or five..." She let the boys touch her, because she had to  find a "... a way of getting along. I had to let them feel me up." She said that she typically wore clothes "... just thin enough to show my nipples." And graphically made out (e.g oral sex) with, Robin, another teen during lunch down by the river. (She dumped Robin  after he made the relationship faux paus of telling her that he loved her.)

She met Oliver when her father took her to Audiovision to buy a CD player. Oliver got her phone number under the guise of calling her to see if the new CD player was installed correctly, but he called to ask her out to dinner, which eventually lead to her first full sexual experience back at his apartment. 

What stood out to me about the book was that the nymphet's parents were accepting of her age-discrepant relationship. The mother was encouraging and the father was accepting - even to the point of Oliver being invited to their house for dinner on multiple occasions. A Certain Age reminded me of An Education (2009) and Fat Girl (2001) [French: À ma soeur!] where in both instances the ephebophile was invited to the nymphet's house for dinner. 

A Certain Age ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, with the father not being as accepting of the age-discrepant relationship as he was initially, which was partly due to a personality conflict with Oliver and because Oliver initially lied about his age. The fact that Oliver knew that it would be more acceptable for 27-year-old to be in a relationship with a 14-year-old than a 31-year-old is revealing.

The Night of the Iguana (1964): "Lolita" Seduces a Priest



Lolita (1962) fans are well-aware that Sue Lyon was 14 when she was cast into Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Nabokov's novel; however, did you know that she played a similar role, at the age of 17, in The Night of the Iguana (1964), which is based on Tennessee Williams' play. 

In The Night of the Iguana (1964), Sue Lyon's character seduces Episcopal priest Reverend Shannon, who was played by the alleged real-life ephebophile Richard Burton. That seduction came after the priest was seduced (off screen) by "a very young Sunday school teacher." However, in both cases, Reverend Shannon was accused of being the aggressor and in the wrong.



(The fact that a 17-year-old was attracted to a priest may sound counter-intuitive, but in my next book I will show that the mindset of priests and pimps are extremely similar and they both can have a similar affect/effect on women.)

The teleiophile themed film won an Oscar, grossed $12 million worldwide at the box office, earned $4.5 million in US theatrical rentals, and was the 10th highest grossing film of 1964. And Time magazine said the film, " ... excites the senses, persuades the mind, and even occasionally speaks to the spirit—one of the best movies ever made from a Tennessee Williams play."

In this clip from the film, Sue Lyon's character sneaked into the priest's room after hours to inform him that she wants to marry him.

EYES WIDE SHUT (1999): A Teen's Three-Way with Japanese Men



In Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Dr. Harford (Tom Cruise) went to the Rainbow costume boutique to purchase a cloak and mask to attend a masquerade (i.e., orgy). While perusing the racks, Milich, the owner, discovered his young daughter having a three-way with two middle-aged Asian men. 

After Milich, understandably yet violently, confronted the Asian men, he was informed by one of the Asian men, "Are you crazy? We were invited here by the young lady." To which Milich replied, "Young lady. Couldn't you see she's a child?"


However, in a subsequent scene, Milich consented to the three-way between his "child" and the two Asian men.


Although, Milich didn't believe the Asian ephebophile's claims, their claims are very realistic, because contrary to popular belief, most age-discrepant relationships are initiated by teens. However, thanks to feminists, ephebophiles need to be aware of the age-of-consent laws in their respective states before consenting to the advances of alluring nymphets.

Eyes Wide Shut was nominated for a César Award for Best Foreign Film, and the erotic drama is based on Arthur Schnitzler's 1926 novella Dream Story.

Faustine et le bel été (1972): A Nymphet's Unrequited Love with a French Professor


In the French film Faustine et le bel été (1972) [English: Faustine and the Beautiful Summer] high school student Faustine (Muriel Catala) decides to spend her summer vacation in the country instead of Paris where a boy from the estate of her upper bourgeoisie neighbors attempts to seduce her. But Faustine is infatuated by the Jean, the boy's middle-aged uncle who, "[...] is on the French literary faculty at Grenoble."


However, Faustine's love is unrequited. Or is the literature professor a savvy ephebophile and knows that one of the best ways to seduce a nymphet is to show restraint, self-control and poise in the face of an inviting nymphet. For example, in the clip below, Faustine is impressed by the fact that Jean did not mention the ribbon that she left on his pillow after the spending the night hiding in his closet.

LA FIGLIASTRA (1976): Pretty Face + Nice Figure + Youth = Nymphet



I wrote in The Allure of Nymphets that Matt Ridley related in the New York Times Notable Book, The Red Queen, that men are attracted to a trinity of qualities: youth, figure, and face. Therefore, even if an older female has a nice figure and a beautiful face - without the youthfulness, she'll often lose out to a nymphet. 

Ridley's research may explain why Peter Cook left Christie Brinkley and Ashton Kutcher left Demi Moore for nymphets.


In the Italian comedy La figliastra (1976), despite the fact that the two middle-aged men have wives with nice figures and beautiful faces, the ephebophiles cannot keep their eyes off of their lovely young (teasing) step-daughters.
