Peter Dinklage is in fine form as the subject of this month’s Playboy "20 Questions" subject, joking about his starving-artist youth (“Shut up, young me”) and eccentric childhood (“We did a puppet version of Quadrophenia, the Who album”). He also fielded questions about being a “sex symbol" and was forced to use the term “DwILF”:
Playboy: There's a video on YouTube called "Peter Dinklage Gets So Much Pussy" in which two guys talk about how much you've been getting laid since Game of Thrones. They estimate your sexual activity has increased 600 percent in the past few years. Does that sound about right?
Dinklage: It depends. By "pussy" do they mean actual pussy? Or is it a metaphor, like for gardening? Because if that's the case, then yes, I've been doing a lot of gardening lately. If they mean sex, they might be getting me confused with somebody else. But if pussy means wearing old-man sweaters and watering my herb garden, then absolutely, I'm getting so much pussy.
Playboy: You are aware that you're a sex symbol, right? Some might even call you a DwILF.
Dinklage: DwILF, as in Dwarf I'd Like to Fuck? That's very clever. Honestly, I think there's an irony in all of this. I take it with a grain of salt. They'll say, "Oh, he's sexy," but women still go for guys who are six-foot-two. It's nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don't believe any of it for a minute.
Can we just ban all terms that require the letters I, L, and F next to each other? (The implication that the subject is an outlier in an otherwise un-fuckable group is rude. But more importantly, -ILF jokes are old. Isn't it time we find a new, fresh way to be rude about sex?) The British town of Ilfracombe and Paris’s Institut de Langue Française will simply have to rebrand.
