Y'know what's interesting, psychologically speaking? The number of people who've interpret 'physically attractive' as meaning 'sexy' rather than 'pretty' or 'cute'. Mind you, I guess when one comment is made, it has a significant effect upon those that follow it. Honestly though, I'm interested in all three interpretations at the moment so it's all valid.

That's a good point. I took the question to mean sexy instead of cute.

I find a fluffy anthro cat to be cute and pretty, but rarely sexy. Conversely, I don't think an insect would ever be called cute/pretty.

Attractive isn't usually used to describe "cute" or "pretty" things.

I always figured attractive was just used to be a general term of aesthetically pleasing which is why we'll use another adjective in front of it, typically.

So what you're saying is that you find sports cars, puppies and 6-year-old girls attractive?

If we wanna get literal with semantics, yes. A Google search of the word will explain why.
But if you think, today, I'm gonna go out and describe puppies and young girls as attractive (cars get away with it, I mean if someone's never heard a vehicle being called sexy, they're sheltered as fuck) you'd be wrong.

Evolution of lingo is something else!

Sports cars, yes. But I'd rather the thread didn't get bogged down with semantics; the simple point is that I chose 'Attractive' simply because it was the least sexually-charged word I could think of that covered all eventualities. Maybe 'Appealing' would have been better in hindsight, but there you go. Can't think of everything!

Wolves, and sometimes felines, i like fluff :3
TBH the vaaaaaaaast majority of other anthro mammals look kinda goofy to me, especially the more obscure mammals.

He may be a spider (not an insect), but I find him adorable.
...And if a spider can be cute, I'm sure there are cute/pretty insects out there as well.
(Unless you mean in your own opinion, then I dunno how you feel about them. ^^; )

...As for me, I don't find anthros sexually attractive. As for prettiness/cuteness, anthro deer can be both, IMO (depends on the artist's style).

With the exception of insects/arthropods, I find pretty much all anthros cool/neat in their own way.

In terms of being appealing to the eye, I myself prefer equines, bovines, vulpines, dragons, and cervids. Everything else is kind of hit or miss.

Entirely subjective to the person.
