Word of the Gay: "Twink"

A "Twink" is a term used among gay & bisexual males to describe young men in their late teens or early twenties who are slim and have little to no body hair. The term originates from the snack food twinkie, which is tanned on the outside and has cream filling. The connotation was that "twinks" are delicious, but have little substance and are not considered for long-term relationships. The term can be used pejoratively in the gay community but is mostly a neutral term used for identification purposes.
