A femme d’un certain âge, as the French refer to, is a woman of indeterminate age who can be sophisticated and attractive. It’s an elegant phrase and to me, not at all derogatory. For author K. Charles Oelfke II, it implies an undercurrent of mystery, combined with a certain fascination and respect for the woman so described.
In Older Women Don’t Giggle, Oelfke shares the story of his life, an exciting romp that might help older women realize their potential as femmes d’un certain âge and helps young men wake up to life’s possibilities. In this memoir, he discusses his approach to intimate relationships, mixed with personal experiences such as world travel in his powder blue VW Beetle, all while absorbing architectural history.
Oelfke tells how he looks at things from a different perspective than most other men, particularly where women are concerned. Older Women Don’t Giggle chronicles how he’s lived an extraordinary life full of adventure, business experiences, travel, and excitement, interspersed with marvelous romantic and erotic experiences.
