Who doesn’t love a MILF? Ever since the term shot to fame in the early 2000s, there’s been a name for the fantasy of hooking up with an older woman. And with sites like LocalMILFSelfies, it’s easier than ever to indulge that fantasy with the possibility of a genuine, safe hookup. This is why we put together this LocalMILFSelfies review!
LocalMILFSelfies is hoping to capitalize on the MILF fantasy by marketing itself as a hookup site where younger men can meet older, often married, women. It’s hardly the only website of its kind out there, either. What we wanted to know was what sets LocalMILFSelfies apart from the competition and does it actually live up to its promises?
The best place to start is with a high-level overview of the site. I like to compare new websites to AFF because it’s consistently the most reliable hookup website out there.

The MILF fantasy isn’t a new one. After all, what’s not to like about a woman who knows her way around? There are plenty of websites on board with the trend and Local MILF Selfies is one of those. The site isn’t exclusively for older women, but the user base definitely skews older, with a lot of users highlighting on their profiles that they’re older, married or just more experienced. Sounds good so far, but did Local MILF Selfies live up to the hype or was it just another scam?
Spoiler alert: It didn’t live up to the hype. Possibly the most annoying “feature” of many low-quality hookup sites is fantasy profiles. Like the name suggests, these are completely made up profiles and messages, either computer-generated or from employees of the website.
These profiles are all clearly marked with an icon, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to weed out. None of the five — yes, five — search functions have a way to exclude fantasy profiles from your results, which means you’ll need to individually click on every woman’s full profile to see if she’s real or “fantasy.” Good luck doing that on a free account, which only allows around five profile visits before it cuts you off.
Local MILF Selfies has a lot going on. At times, it feels like too much. For a start, there are the constant popups. Every time I signed in or opened a new page, I’d get a popup notification from the site.
To add insult to injury, my popup blocker stopped the content from loading, but not the window itself, leaving me with a blank window I still needed to click out of.
Some of the features were arguably more useful, like the ability to send instant messages to users currently online. Once again, however, there’s no way to block these from popping up on your screen, so if you don’t have enough tokens to reply — or just aren’t interested — they’re just annoying and in your face.
I found the “quickies” feature far more interesting, which shows you site-generated quick matches and allows you to click yes or no to a potential hookup. None of my quickie matches resulted in a hookup or even a conversation, but it’s an easy way to view potential matches and — unlike nearly everything else on the site — it’s available to free users.
Despite all these extras — including a video gallery, featured tweets and friends network — Local MILF Selfies lacked some pretty basic functionality, including the ability to choose or change your location. If you’re looking for some local matches, make sure you switch off your VPN before signing up — or, to be safe, just give the whole thing a miss.
Most hookup sites with paid memberships operate on a subscription model, with a few choosing to use pay-as-you-go “tokens” instead. Local MILF Selfies, unbelievably, does both.
Even after paying for a VIP subscription, I was locked out of a lot of site functionality. The ability to send instant messages to online users and bypass the clunky mail system seemed promising until I realized I’d need to pay even more for single-use tokens in order to use that feature.
The ability to send SMS messages directly to user’s phones was similarly locked behind tokens, making some of the only positive aspects of the site prohibitively expensive.
Local MILF Selfies made it difficult to find real women, locked its most interesting features behind several levels of paywalls and clung to a clunky, outdated user experience that made using the website more of a pain than a pleasure. There’s never a guarantee that using any of these websites will end in a successful hookup, but even ignoring my lack of success here, I find it difficult to recommend anything about LocalMILFSelfies.
If you pinned all your hopes for a hookup on LocalMILFSelfies, there’s no need to give up on getting laid. There are so many other sites out there that can give you better chances of finding real hookups. Our current favorite is AFF, which has a free trial.
AFF, unlike other sites out there, has real human users, not computer-generated fantasy profiles. It also has a huge userbase, so even if you’re not in a big city, you can still find a handful of singles who are looking for a good time. Best of all, AFF isn’t out to scam you. You get your money’s worth and you use the site the same way you would any highly-rated hookup site.
So if meeting women online seems impossible, it might just be because you haven’t tried AFF yet.
It was hard to find many things to like about LocalMILFSelfies and most of them were paid features.
Most of the users here are slightly older women, often married, all supposedly looking for a no-strings-attached fling with a younger man.
The main problem with Local MILF Selfies was that, even once I eliminated the obviously fake “fantasy” profiles, a lot of the users just didn’t seem genuine. There was a higher proportion than usual of women asking for direct contact details straight off the bat, even without an initial message.
More than once I came across profiles with the same message almost word for word, stating that they couldn’t or wouldn’t respond to messages on the site but that men are “free to drop their contact details.”
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but never do this unless you’re sure the person you’re chatting to is legit or you’re hoping to break the Guinness World Record for spam in your inbox.
I didn’t love the design of Local MILF Selfies. It was a little dated and a lot busy, which didn’t make it easy to navigate. In addition to the standard top navigation bar, there are popup menus at the side of the page and instant messaging windows that quickly pile up along the bottom, whether you’ve paid for the extra tokens required to respond to these messages or not.
There are at least five different ways to search for women, including two links to the same search function in the main navigation panel, which ended up feeling redundant rather than adding extra value.
The messaging system on Local MILF Selfies is functional but inconvenient. You can send messages directly from another user’s profile or from your inbox and you can see which messages are read or unread at a glance, which is about the most positive thing I can say.
There’s no separate inbox for genuine messages vs automated requests, so everything is lumped together into your inbox and left for you to sort out. And reading or sending messages opens a new page every time, which means a lot of clicking if you’re messaging more than one woman at a time.
I received more than a handful of fake messages immediately after signing up, which is always a red flag. I got messages from dozens of women before I even filled out a bio and not all of those were from designated “fantasy” profiles.
Most of the women I messaged seemed happy to message a few times back and forth, though the majority of those conversations started to fall apart or become unnecessarily convoluted after the first basic message, which is pretty common in hookup sites that don’t have real women behind the profiles.
If you’re willing to invest a lot of money into your membership, the additional message types could be a neat feature. If you don’t love being tied to a computer all day or sitting around waiting for traditional mail, you can choose to send and receive text messages on your phone or send instant messages to women who are currently online.
Those features cost extra, though, even on top of a standard monthly subscription, so beware. And there’s no way to disable instant messages — or to stop them constantly popping up on your screen — if you choose not to pay extra for the ability to respond, which admittedly got a little frustrating.
Unsurprisingly, not much. Free members can read — but not reply to — instant messages sent by other users, respond yes or no to quick matches, and view a small number of profiles.
Even some features that are often standard with free memberships on similar hookup sites, like being able to use the search function and view more than a handful of user profiles, are locked behind paid membership on Local MILF Selfies.
When you consider that even paying for a monthly subscription doesn’t unlock full access to all site features, it’s a pretty bad deal all around.
As with most sites that don’t really have much to offer, it looks like LocalMILFSelfies.com also gets revenue from ads. I saw a handful of ads for other sites as soon as I created an account:
And as always, live webcam ads were all over the site too:
It didn’t help that internal banners advertising paid membership didn’t disappear even after I paid for a subscription, only started encouraging me to pay for the next membership tier.

Not as far as I could tell. LocalMILFSelfies admits in its terms & conditions to using “fantasy profiles,” which is a quick way of saying there are no real women here.
Between the fantasy profiles and the hard-to-cancel membership … well, I’m not saying LocalMILFSelfies is an outright scam, but I wouldn’t recommend testing that theory.
You can send a message directly to another user by clicking “send mail” at the top of their profile. You can also reply to messages sent to you by typing into the box marked “send a reply” and clicking “send by mail.” In order to send messages, you’ll need a paid subscription.
To search user profiles, click on “search” in the top navigation bar. You can set age parameters and filter by users who are nearby, online now, newest, detailed, username, best matches, featured and access to text/SMS.
You can’t change your search location, as it will default to the automatically detected location at the time you created your profile.
