So over on tumblr I subscribe to meninfantasyart, one of those ubiquitous art aggregators. And I've noticed something.

It goes like -
horromonster
bishounen
demon
bishounen
orc
glowing demon something
orc
wtf even is that
heavily armored bishounen


It's not supposed to be a cheesecake account, so while there are a few pretty men in there, the illustrations for the most part aren't about sex appeal; they're about how imposing, powerful, and intimidating these male characters are. The sex appeal, if there even is any, usually flows from that.

Meanwhile, I'm also subscribed to a few more general illustration aggregators. These also aren't cheesecake accounts. Women show up far more often than men, and they're always pretty, and usually presented in an non-threatening way.

So obvious of course. This won't surprise anyone. But it does get old.
