Predatory Elder Fraus (Mrs. Robinson syndrome)...your (& my) experience of...

I was watching The Graduate on TV a couple of nights ago and it reminded me of being twenty years old, new to New York (from England) and how several times I was practically raped by older married women friends of my parents who I thought were just being nice, inviting me over because I was new to the city. Clearly I was very naive (just like Ben at the beginning of The Graduate)...also I was gay, so not the least bit interested. One time, a family friend, married with three kids, came to NY from Chicago and called ahead and asked if I'd like to meet up and join her and her friends, as her guest, for dinner and the new Tom Stoppard on B'way and I was practically raped at The Stanhope. She seemed amazed that all I was interested in was dinner at a top NY restaurant and the hot Broadway show and that my enthusiasm to join them wasn't anything to do with her forty-five year old body. Likewise my mother's married best friend had me over to dinner and the same thing happened. Finally I got the message that older women friends of my parents weren't just interested in being 'nice' to this new kid in town. Also that New York women over forty were far more predatory than their London counterparts. Anyone else here have stories of Mrs. Robinsons?
