If anybody wants to know why Jenny McCarthy is posing for Playboy at age 39, she's got her own question to fire right back at them.

Why not?

TV's Love in the Wild host took to Twitter this week to explain why she's stripping down for the July/August issue 19 years after she first posed for the magazine.

"Why should only 20 yr olds be considered sexy?" she writes. "Let's (hear) it for the MILFs."

PEOPLE readers overwhelmingly agree.

In a poll, they responded by a two-to-one margin that McCarthy, who turns 40 in November, has only gotten better with age from when she first appeared in Playboy in 1993.
