How to See Private Galleries on Cougar Life

Updated July 20, 2017

If you want access to the private galleries on CougarLife, it's important to keep certain things in mind. It can be tough enough to talk to someone, let alone asking to see them. CougarLife is much like other Internet dating websites but has some quirks that require specific knowledge to navigate around. Without knowing how to even request access, seeing private galleries can be a tough thing indeed.

Sign in or sign up with CougarLife as a cub and fill out your profile.

Browse for someone whose private pictures you'd like to see. On his profile page, you can see whether there are any private photos by looking for a picture featuring a grey silhouette with a lock. That is a private photo.

Request access to the private photo gallery by left-clicking on the locked picture. This will send a message, alerting the person that you'd like access to his private gallery.

Wait for the request to be accepted. People are more likely to reply favourably if you have talked with them first, or if you also have private photos they can request access to.


Posting pictures that reflect well on you will increase the likelihood that your request will be accepted. Try including pictures of you doing fun things, and don't include pictures of other women.
