This term has been around for a long time now, but really came into prominence with the movie “American Pie” in the late 90’s. You should all already know what it means, but there’s probably a few people reading this who are thinking to themselves “What the hell is a MILF??” So for those living in a cave or trapped under a large boulder, MILF stands for Mom I’d Like to….well, if you can’t get the “F” word yourself then you’re hopeless. Another acceptable phrase is “Yummy Mummy.” I’m going on the assumption you get the picture.
This word made an appearance on yet another one of my parenting Web sites, and I was shocked to see that some women have a problem with it.
Why would any mother take offense to being called a MILF?? If anything, I see this as nothing but a ringing compliment from guys. In fact, I was thrilled when MJ got pregnant because that meant in 9 months I’d be married to a MILF! That means a woman recently put on weight, had a baby and after all of that she’s STILL hot. For those reasons and more, there is not much I can think of in terms of higher praise from the male sex than being labeled a MILF. So if you moms out there see guys leering at you while you’re pushing the stroller around, chances are you’re probably in the club. Don’t shy away from it, embrace it. Embrace the MILFness that is you!
And while I think the MILF label is fitting, I want to know why isn’t there an equivalent for dads? Fathers are always left out of this kind of stuff as if we don’t matter. I know I’ve written about this before but Father’s Day is nothing but an afterthought to Mother’s Day. Moms have “Mother’s Intuition” but do dads have something similar? Nope. In fact we are told more often than not that we don’t know what the hell we’re talking about. But back to the matter at hand…
I’m proposing an official name for fathers that lets us embrace our good looks, which of course only get better with age! While we don’t give birth, we do go through the whole ordeal with you and maybe we’d like some women drooling over us and giving us catchy nicknames. So without further ado, here are my suggestions for the male equivalent to MILF:
— DILF (Dad I’d Like to F–k):
This is, obviously, similar to the MILF and carries with it the same insinuations.
— DD (Doable Daddy)
I like this one because it also refers to breasts as well. For instance a woman checking out a hot dad could say “Mmmmmm…I’d let that DD play with these DDs anytime!”
— FILTH (Father I’d Like to Hump)
Self explanatory I think.
— DIDDO (Dad I’d Do)
Again, could be fun to use in a sentence such as a woman saying “Hey girlfriend, would you diddle that DIDDO over there?”
— PHAT (Papa’s Hot And Tempting)
So that’s all I could think of during my day off yesterday. But all you MILFs, Yummy Mummys, DDs and everyone else should feel free to suggest your own. C’mon people, get creative and wow me so I can steal it, claim it as my own and take all the credit.
