MILF, an acronym for "Mother/Mom/Mum I'd Like to Fuck", is a colloquial term common in English and generally regarded as vulgar when spelled out. It denotes a sexually attractive female, usually several years older than the person using the term.[1]


The term itself was first documented in Internet newsgroups during the 1990s.[2] It was popularized by the 1999 film American Pie referring to Jennifer Coolidge's character: 'Stifler's Mom'.[1]

The concept of a MILF predates the term itself, as exemplified by Mrs. Robinson in the 1967 comedy classic The Graduate.[3]

In 2002, a resident of the U.S. state of Washington applied for a vanity license plate reading "GOTMILF", a parody of the advertising slogan Got Milk. This plate was approved, but it was later canceled after complaints were filed against it.[4]

No one has nailed down the origin of the acronym MILF ("Mom I'd Like to Fuck"), although American Pie is credited with popularizing the term, which is most closely associated with teenage boys lusting for a friend's hot mom.

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.
