Pretty Boys are men of any sexual orientation that look... well.. pretty. They possess fine features, tend to dress well, and often can be mistaken for women just on the basis of their looks.
Judging strictly by appearances, they are often thought the opposite of manly. This perception (that they are wimps just because they're pretty) is often vastly incorrect.
