I Need Sources For Some Articles

I'm looking for Polk County people to interview for several articles I'm working on. If you fit the bill, or you know someone who would, please email me with your name, the story for which you could be a source and your PHONE NUMBER. I refuse to play e-mail tag with anyone!

I do not use anonymous sources, so unless you can give me your full name and age, there's no need to reply.

Here are the stories:

Cougars and Kittens
There’s a lot of it in Hollywood- younger guys with older women. Think Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher; Jennifer Anniston and John Mayer; Linda Hogan and her 19-year-old boy toy.

There's also a lot of younger women with older men. It seems that it used to be more socially acceptable for the guy to be the older of the two, but not anymore. I'm looking for those Polk County Cougars! Do you have a younger man in your life? Do you get mistaken for the grandmother or mother of your younger man? How do you deal with that? What’s the psychology behind seeking and keeping younger mates? Is it really just about the money, which is what's often assumed?

And you younger guys, I want to talk to you, too. What attracted you to your Cougar?

Guys who play video games
Are adult men who play video games long after they have wives and children total losers, or is it OK to play them? How much is too much? Is 3-4 hours a day perfectly acceptable? What do you wives think about your husbands playing video games?

I know there are women out there who refuse to even date a man who admits to playing video games. Is that a deal breaker in a relationship?

Guys: why do you play video games as adults? What are the pros/cons to it?

Boob Jobs
Younger and younger women are getting boob jobs. I need to find at least one teenager who has had a breast enhancement or an adult who had a breast enhancement as a teenager.

Also, I'd like to talk to women who've had breast augmentation in their 20s, 30s, 40s.

Hi Lorrie. Not a source here, just a comment. When I was 32 my insurance approved me to have a breast reduction. I had a scheduled appointment and everything. Then I went through a separation/divorce, experienced a complete metamorphosis and discovered myself. In the process of losing weight and gaining self esteem I decided my extra top-heavy stature was more of an asset and no longer a liability. I did know a friend who had a reduction at 19 and she nearly died from losing too much blood during the operation. She suffered for years with pain from the procedure.

I have a friend who's had 3 "enhancement" surgeries. #1 and #2 almost killed her. #3 was to clean up the mess. I'll ask her if she'd be interested in sharing.
