a young man with boyish good looks
- There were a lot of cute twinks at the gay club last night.
- Did you know that straight men call cute young girls "babes", and gay men call cute young guys "twinks"?
Note: This word is common among gay men, though it may not be known at all by other people. If it's used outside gay circles, it probably won't be understood.Origin: Possibly derived from a U.S. snack cake called a "Hostess Twinkie" which is "golden-colored, sweet and full of cream", a description which some claim also describes the typical gay image of a "twink".
