‘WHIPs’ are the new ‘MILFs’ of 2017

Sexy older woman

Empowering acronym.

The Oxford English Dictionary describes a MILF as a “sexually attractive older woman, typically one who has children”. However, as we all know it actually means “mother I’d like to f**k”. Obviously.

Of course, in this day and age it’s not OK to throw around a term that is not particularly empowering or flattering to the female population and as a way to get around this, a new term has emerged: WHIPs. This stands for a “woman who is hot, intelligent and in her prime”. Much better.

The term was coined by Bibi Lynch on ‘This Morning’ (great source) who said that it’s a smarter alternative to “cougar”:

Cougar to me is very predatory, and a bit sly and a bit creepy.

Also with ‘cougar,’ the men are prey – to me, WHIPs felt funnier, smarter, and sexier.

I don’t think there needs to be a label, but it’s better than labels that have been.

The only thing is it sounds far kinkier than MILF and cougar – if you’re an older woman, approaching some random dude and telling them you’re a WHIP is going to give off a very different signal to a woman who is “intelligent and in her prime” if you catch my drift. Either way, it looks like this is the new saying of 2017 so I guess it’s here to stay. All hail the WHIPs.
