    When I've heard it been used it's usually been someone calling it in an affectionate way, but never the less, creepy. Generally I think it's a skinner young gay guy.

    Urban dictionary:

    "An attractive, boyish-looking, young gay man. The stereotypical twink is 18-22, slender with little or no body hair, often blonde, dresses in club wear even at 10:00 AM, and is not particularly intelligent. A twink is the gay answer to the blonde bimbo cheerleader."

    I don't like the phrase and I wouldn't call you one.

    Hm. Attractive? Check.
    Slender? Check.
    18-22? Check.
    Gay? Check.

    You're right, what could they have been thinking?


    It's OFFICIAL you meet the four basic criteria of a TWINK. So, your a TWINK. It's not a bad designation, it just means your young, cute and desirable.

    Twink is derived from Twinkie. Golden and cream filled.

    At least, that was the definition as I came to understand it when i discovered the world of porn in '94... which makes me feel exquisitely old.

    As long as it is not derogatory I don't see why he'd have a problem. Unfortunately, there is a label for everything.

    Just one of the many prices we pay for being boyishly handsome and smooth. Don't worry some day we'll truly look like men and won't get asked for hall passes when we pick our younger siblings up from their high school.icon_wink.gif

    I look even more boyish in my ACU's. Like a kid playing dress up or something. I'm iffy about it though. Part of me likes to believe I've stumbled apon the fountain of youth and the other half is just kind of ready for my body to catch up with my mind.

    To people my age and older I look like a teen. Luckily however a 14 year old called me Mr. The other day at my sister's graduation. I asked her not but she insisted that it was the respectable thing to do. So maybe I'm climbing on up the developmental chart after all.

    And I half to agree with some of the comments above. Gay people have a label for everything. My poor chubby boyfriend, they call him bear lol! If he'd just workout with me maybe he'd be a muscle bear some day.

    I don't like the label, I don't use it and I doubt anyone would call me a twink. I think it's a lazy and prejudiced way of dealing with people.

    You should be lounging on a fainting couch wearing a silk caftan when you say things like that.

    Well, obviously by the person calling you that. I'm sure we can start a whole dissertation on guy’s whole label other guys as twinks.

    Bottom line; accept it as a complement and move on if the advance is creeping you out.

    They took away my office chair, so I brought in my fainting couch and a pitcher of Mai Tais.

    Stud, you can call yourself a twink, a twinkie, a twinkle twinkle little star, or whatever you like as long as you walk around naked all the time.

    I usually base the term Twink mostly on body style and looks over intellect. The guy I'm dating now is two years younger than, he has a slim build, and is anything but dumb. Not all twinks are unintelligent.

    There was a great 60s psychedelic band called 'Twink and the Pink Faeries".
