And what is its female equivalent? Cupcake? Cheesecake?
It's funny you should ask that. As I was writing that response, I started to go into a reverie about why women's pinups were called "cheesecake" and men's were called "beefcake". Why associate men with beef and women with cheese? (Although I do understand that it's more about the cake than the cheese )
I suppose it's just about sweet versus meaty.
