Dreams and dream images of beautiful women, babes, cheesecake, pinups... That odd place halfway between beauty and sex that can't quite be reduced to either one alone, despite Freud, the fashion industry, and all the theorists in the world.
For hot boys not girls, see hunks.
Be warned--a lot of these babes are the dreamer, in various dreambodies, which complicates the emotional picture. At least when I tell or draw such a dream, I'm stripping emotionally as well as physically, and these situations aren't pin-up fantasies but first-person memories. Not sex objects, but active subjects. Or (speaking psychologically), not animas, but selves.
