Milf

Ok. Time to get this straight. The word milf belongs to one of two people. Either me, or my friend Eric. You see, one of us
(I can’t remember which) came up with this word in junior year (1986) of high school (William Penn Charter School, Philadelphia, Pa.) on the steps down to the cafeteria. I remember one of us (I think it was me) talking about someones mom (don’t remember who) and I think it was Eric who said: “Yea she’s a mom I’d like to fuck too..” and then one of us shortened it down to milf.
This wasn’t uncommon. We thought of a bunch of words and expressions at that time. Milf, however, got popular quite quickly
in our highschool.

I used it in college (1988) and it got popular there as well. One person, a close friend of mine, ended up moving to LA after
graduation in 1991. He was going to be a screenwriter and he met a ton of other writers while out there.

This, I’m convinced is how it made it into the American Pie film that ultimately made the word very popular.

I’ve friends who have heard me use the word and have used it themselves in the years between 86 and 99
(when it came out in the film). I’ve no financial incentive or other reason to take credit for this word and for years I’ve never done anything about it online until now.
But I’m starting to see others (here and
here for example) taking credit for a word that I know I had a part in creating so I’m staking my claim now.
