Re: Sexiest DS9 character?

I would imagine that someone who is "sexy" would be considered very sexually attractive or sexually interesting, but that someone who is "hot" would be excitingly so; there may be a degree of powerful irresistiblity to the attractiveness of someone who is "hot", which engages the beholder in a way that seems to inflame - hence the term.

The American Heritage Dictionary seems to suggest these subtle differences. Sexy is defined as "arousing or tending to arouse sexual desire or interest", whereas hot is delineated as "sexually excited or exciting."

Re: Sexiest DS9 character?

"Hot" and "sexy" are the same thing. Maybe "hot" might sometimes connote a more physical type of attractiveness than "sexy" which might be more intangible, but really, they're the same. As far as I can tell both terms are frequently used by both genders and directed at pretty much anyone they care to direct it at. I prefer "sexy", but neither's really the height of poetry.

Re: Sexiest DS9 character?

And I really don't understand the idea that sexy is something that only women are, to men, and not the other way round Now that sounds sexist.
Oh, I agree. But hey--feminists have believed wierder....

How did I put it back in the day? Oh, yes: Ezri is Star Trek's all-time ultimate little cream-filled hottie goddess.
Hmm...I wonder what the gal herself would say to that....

Probably, after chuckling, and glancing downward (I just love whenever she does that!), she'd say..."Good night, Illario...."

I was going for the accurate words rather than poetic... What would you prefer? Tasty? Irrestistible? Delectable? Erotically captivating?

Re: Sexiest DS9 character?

^My $0.02 on terminology:

"Hot" is a slang term. "Sexy" is the more accurate term, but even so, the term is shorthand for "sexually attractive"--i.e., "attractive in relation to gender, in a manner that appeals to intimate desires, physical and social", or some such thing....

I'll vote for "delectable" myself. Always did love that word!

Re: Sexiest DS9 character?

Hot and Sexy are indeed two completely separate terms. Someone can be 'hot' without being sexy. Hot is more a style like cute. Cute can be sexy without necessarily being hot.

Mirror Ezri is hot and cute.
Normal Ezri is cute but not hot.

Both are sexy.

How so? Explain the difference.

I think there is no difference, apart from 'hot' being a more slang term.

Re: Sexiest DS9 character?

They're not different terms in my neck of the woods. One is interchangeable with the other.

The only thing that I get is the old "evil is sexy" bit, other wise the words mean the same thing

I'm going to have to agree...and I think maybe the best way to do so is to quote myself from a few posts back:
And in this thread, there has been quite a bit of differentation, too (e.g., discussions about whether Ezri is "sexy" or merely "cute"). No doubt those who have differentiated have perfectly good reasons for this, but...I suspect that the reasons won't be the same for everybody.
Language is an amazing thing, really. We use words, other people use those words, too, and so we often assume that those others are using those words the exact same way. But the fact is that sometimes they are, and sometimes they are not.

And I have to say that as far as Happydave and I are concerned, in this case, they are not. I've never differentiated these words in that way...which isn't to say that I'm right and he's wrong, or that he's right and I'm wrong. Particularly in the case of slang and other words-of-the-moment, which I would say "hot" in this context pretty much qualifies as, we have moved out of the realm of idiom or even dialect and into idiolect, which is the term for an individual's personal dialect. Other people differentiate between hot and sexy the same way Dave does, or so I've gathered from other discussions here on the BBS, but the differentiation is by no means universal.
