Twink (gay slang)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about twink as gay slang. For twink in online games (such as World of Warcraft), see Twinking. For other uses of twink, see Twink.


Brent Corrigan won the "Best (Amateur) Twink Performer - Bottom" 2008 Golden Dickie for Fuck Me Raw while his studio at the time, Cobra Video won for "Best (Amateur) Twink Studio" largely through his films.[1][2][3]

Twink or twinkie is a gay slang term describing a young or young-looking gay man (usually white and in his late teens or early twenties) with a slender build, little or no body hair, and no facial hair.[4][5] In some societies, the term chick or chicken is preferred.[6] The related term twinkle-toes, which implies that a man is effeminate, tends to be used in a derogatory manner.[7] The terms can be complimentary or pejorative.[8][9]

Origin

The namesake of twink is the Twinkie pastry.

The term's namesake is the "golden-colored phallic-shaped snack cake" Hostess Twinkie, commonly regarded as the quintessential junk food: "little nutritional value, sweet to the taste and creme-filled."[10][11][12] Cream is among the well-known food-related euphemistic terms for ejaculate.[13] In Queering Pornography: Desiring Youth, Race and Fantasy in Gay Porn, essayist Zeb J. Tortorici notes that gay twink porn thrives on the production and performance of "consumable and visually/anally receptive masculinity."[14]

A twink is "memorable for his outer packaging", not his "inner depth".[11] The golden color also alludes to those who are excessively sun tanned.[15] The tanned, "blond California surfer" has been popularized in the mid-1970s before the onset of the AIDS pandemic in the early 1980s, which ushered in the physical gay male as muscular, clean-cut, and extremely healthy.[16]

The junk food reference has a number of connotations, including a perceived lack of intelligence and being ideal only for a short term, but not having lasting qualities or being very healthy.[15] Most of these concerns no longer apply, as the definition of twink has broadened, and qualifiers (such as muscle or femme) narrow the meaning to a more specific type of twink.[15] Although the term originated from the United States snack food, both the cake and twink have found international use.[10][17][18]
[edit]Usage



Contrasting a twink and a bear can be seen in this group of people from the Capital Gay Pride parade in Albany, New York in June 2009. The young blond (center), Naked Boy News host J.Son Dinant, is generally considered twink-ish because of his slender build and overall youthful appearance, while the man on the right would generally be considered more of a "bear" because of his stocky build and body hair.

Twinks are often clean-shaven (if they have facial hair) to emphasize a youthful, fresh-faced appearance, although many are too young to have beard growth. The term has been used by bears in a derogatory and pejorative manner.[8] In some cases, it is a neutral descriptive term, and can be contrasted with bear.[19] Closely related (in the United States) is boi, although this generally represents a more feminine look or a generational way of defining oneself. The term is often modified by various descriptors, e.g., femme twink, Euro twink and muscle twink. The term is often used in the gay porn industry.

There is a backronym that states that twink stands for "teenaged, white, into no kink", although none of these criteria are either necessary or sufficient to be a twink.[20][21]
[edit]Twink code

Similar to other "codes", like the bear code, the twink code is a set of symbols using letters, numbers, and other characters commonly found on modern, Western computer keyboards, and used for the describing and rating of twinks.[22] These codes are used in email, Usenet, and Internet forum postings to identify the physical type and preferences of the poster but have mostly fallen out of usage. The code includes physical traits such as "c" for color of hair (from blond to black), "l" for length of hair (from bald/clean-shaven to very long), "h" for degree of hairlessness, "y" for youthful appearance, and "e" for endowment.[22] It also includes personality traits such as "q" for "queeniness" and sexual preferences such as "k" for "the kinky factor".[22]

Even when I was young and shaved everything, I was never labeled a twink. It bothered me, as I too wanted to be the tanned youthful object of lust; instead, the closest I came was being called a bantam.

Looking back on it, I now know why i didn't fit the twink mold. It's because there's more than just a cream filling inside me: it's called substance. This bring me to my next point; the label twink being used derogatively. I know I'm guilty of sometimes using it when I'm enraged with a clueless fem barrista at Starbucks or a cocky club boy at the bar. I don't think I'm trying to put them down; in fact, I think it still might be rooted in jealousy. They are what I wanted to be when I was young. It may sound ridiculous, as it is to me whilst I write this, but I guess I just need to remind myself that's there's more to a person than just oil, flour, and preservatives. I still watch and absolutely adore twink porn, but I don't see myself dating or even conversing in depth with a twink.

Now, at 26 years of age, I don't religiously shave and wax anymore. I have a fuzzy chest and stubble. I am a young gay man, and should be lucky that I'm not an aging twink who is approaching thirty and still clings to 'boi' in their nicks.

That being said, let's see some hot twink pics...

We all evolve and finally become the man that we were meant to be. Sometimes the journey can be very enlightening. My evolution to leatherbear was a wild ride indeed!!
