MILF pornography (acronym of "Mother I'd Like to Fuck") is a genre of pornography in which the actresses are usually women ages 40 to 50, though many actresses have started making pornographic films at age 30 and older, while actresses have played MILFs as young as 24. Central to the typical MILF narrative is an age-play dynamic of older women and younger lovers. A related term used in the genre is the term cougar, which implies an older woman as predator.
The MILF porn genre is a growing segment of the sex industry, and it has extended the careers of female pornographic actresses. Actresses of the MILF porn genre have their own awards: the XRCO "MILF of the Year Award", the AVN "MILF/Cougar Performer of the Year Award", the Cyberspace Adult Video Reviews (CAVR) "MILF of the Year Award", and the Urban X Award for "Best MILF Performer" among others. In Japan, Adult Broadcasting Awards also has award for the "Best Mature Actress".
The concept of a 'Real Female', 'Real Female-Milf' predates the term itself, as exemplified by reality TV shows in Big Brother, etc. In many cases the entire premise of the show is a contrived one, based around a competition or another semi real/unusual situation. However, various shows have additionally been accused of using fakery in order to create more compelling television, such as having premeditated storylines and in some cases feeding participants lines of dialogue, focusing only on participants' most outlandish behaviour, and altering events through editing and re-shoots. It has also seen something of a use in the adult entertainment industry in order to cater to 'The Amateur Look'

"How exactly did a once-taboo erotic fetish become a widespread, culturally sanctioned ideal, a perverse mix of branding and empowerment? After all, a hot mom used to be a tragedy, whether in the literal sense (Oedipus’ Mom-I’m-Fated-to-Fuck, Jocasta) or in the bittersweet Mrs. Robinson sense (“Oh, God. Oh, let me out,” begs Benjamin Braddock). Alternately, it was an insult: “Oh, yeah? That’s not what your mama said last night.” A hot mom was by definition a bad mom."
