Palpably, the basic difference between beautiful and sexy is the mode of perception you're in. A testosterone-flooded mind may perceive beautiful as sexy for beauty is the crucial ingredient of anything sexy. Au contraire, all that's immersed in beauty need not have the sex-punch in it.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and so is sexiness. In one of the ragging sessions conducted recently, I asked a freshie if the wallpaper of Anna Kournikova in bikini on my lappu(laptop) was sexy or beautiful. He replied," I don't know about the wallpaper but above all contradictions, Anna is sexy!" Moreover, the image of a personality i.e. your pre-opinion does count and formulates a biased opinion. So what's your take on the pix of Elisha Cuthbert pasted above -
sexy or beautiful?
