A wonderfully sweet and polite senior couple wrote to The Economist to ask for the definition of the word "milf." They wrote in response to an article written by the magazine about the evolution of the pornography industry. The piece highlighted the digital changes for the industry, the very same that made Playboy decide to stop publishing nude pictures. The couple, one Dutch and one Italian, read that milf was the number one porn search term for the Netherlands and Italy, but were unfamiliar with the word and were afraid to search for it on the Internet. Bless. Their. Hearts.

Considerably experienced!

Dear Sir,

We are a senior Dutch-Italian couple, both of us with considerable international sex experience and, since reading your articles on pornography in your September 26th-October 2nd edition, we keep wondering what the meaning of "milf" is.

Apparently this the most searched term on porn sites in Holland and Italy, but we have absolutely no idea of what this is referring to or what this practice could be.

Could you please illuminate us...It is never too late to learn something new and enjoyable...and we are too old to accept to feel ourselves ignorant on these issues.

Needless to say, we did not want to Google the term "milf' in order not to be inundated with silly and unnecessary porn messages until the end of our days.

We are grateful in advance for your help and consideration.

This is just the cutest thing ever. Only polite elderly people would write a printed letter to an editor, AND be afraid to Google a porn term for fear of racy targeted ads. It's also great that they don't want to feel behind the times, especially since they have "considerable international sex experience." Damn! Good for them. The editor must have had fun typing out the written response so they can be "illuminated" to the definition of the acronym.
