Until this turnaround, Wendy had spent 20 years dating men much younger than her, whom she met through friends or dating websites.
But an infatuation with toyboys certainly wasn't something Wendy always aspired to.
For not only does Wendy have a penchant for seducing toyboys, she has also publicly bragged of her adventures in books and an online blog.
Made famous three years ago by her raunchy memoir The Toyboy Diaries, which exposed her exploits with twentysomething men, she has now written a sequel, The Daily Male, in which she explores the possibility of finally settling down with a man her own age.
'My stipulation was separate rooms, as nothing had happened between us and I wasn't sure what would,' she says. Older men think they have to compete, so need to be fairly confident to approach me.
'Every evening we had great conversation - but then he went to his room and I went to mine. He did kiss me on the last day - but it was awkward and we never went out again.' The outcome made Wendy decide to stick to toyboys in future - and since last summer she has been doing exactly that. It's not just physical.' Sex is, however, a crucial part of the relationships. 'And sex is actually very good for you.' Even without a big age gap, many women feel self-conscious about men seeing them naked - but Wendy is oblivious to such concerns.
The disapproval of her friends and family was what drove Wendy to seek older company in a male partner.
'I have four really close girlfriends and I'm the only one who dates toyboys,' she says. It's especially hard for the ones with sons - they consider it virtually incestuous - which is a shame as they'd have great opportunities with their sons' friends.
'I also have my best conversations with younger men because they are actually interested in me, whereas older men have been programmed to think they have more value than women.So Wendy started dating men in their 50s and 60s - but found they did not compare favourably.Wendy is unequivocal: 'Older men, who are mostly divorced, have hair flowering out of their nose and ears, paunches, bad clothes and bad shoes.As someone who never dates a man who isn't several decades younger than herself, this proved quite a challenge.'The problem is I just don't fancy men my own age,' says Wendy at her North London home. They are attractive, great company, boost my self-esteem and reaffirm my sexuality. 'It may be unusual, but life is tough for my generation - we have to work hard and look after our family - so we need to have some fun.'Unkempt older men showing signs of ageing are not attractive. And until recently, my choice has been to have that fun with younger men - though I do realise this wouldn't be everyone's choice.' Indeed, it is not to everyone's taste.
