Yes its a double standard, but its a good one, girls have WAY more to lose if they get into something that turns into a sexual situation.

It doesn’t help that women have been wired for centuries to equate their worth with youth and beauty. “It is often the limiting thoughts a woman has absorbed that can create problems for the couple,” says Winter.
“If she is fearful, insecure and doubting her merit, she will never be able to accept that her younger man loves her.” Winter adds that media reports about Demi Moore’s obsession with looking young are “the perfect example of how the ideal of youth and beauty can torture even the most lovely example of a modern-day woman.” The idea that one must maintain an illusion of youth to keep a younger partner is illogical. “It’s an up-front buy that he’s willing to accept, because he values the totality of who she is and what she brings to his life.” Talk about family planning.
