Would it be relevant to mention Real Life female classical musicians who attract a fan base at least in part because of their good looks? Because Wang Yuja definitely fits the trope, and some critics argue that she's helping make classical music more popular by performing in skimpy outfits.

The description should be slightly re-written because reading the examples proves that male and female examples are balanced. Sometimes the trope is really heavily sexualized but sometimes it's played more subtly, as simply being attracted to hot musicians who play classical music.

Personally, I would not mind having real life examples, provided Rule Of Cautious Editing Judgment is followed. As far as I can see, at the moment there is no ban on adding real life examples to this trope.

Also, a lot of the examples suffers heavily from Zero Context Example syndrome. If you are familiar with the works, please be so kind and add the context.

Removed the Haruhi Suzumiya example, which was plain shoehorned in. This trope is about classical music, not rock.

Similarly, I removed the one bellow. I am not familiar with the work, but I noticed it when I was sorting the examples and improving example indentation.

  • K-On:
    • The girls, even though they don't play classical music, look very nice playing their instruments.
    • Especially Mio on the bass.

This is about female musicians being attractive, right? The main article is rather vague.

:D the author of the description got carried away.

There's a serious problem with linking to this page. No combination of capitalization/punctuation seems to work, so you basically just have to drop the link in there. This needs to be fixed.

Maybe I haven't searched hard enough, but is there a male equivalent to this? This troper has seen a lot more examples in media of the "sexy male musician" than the "sexy female musician," and IRL straight girls seem to get musician fetishes far more often than straight guys do (and I'm a music major, so I would know). Also, in tropes where it's this idea but with a guy, I'm not sure if I should use this trope.

There are a lot of male examples, and now even the description mentions that yes, it's possible for both genders :-)

Shouldn't the title read "Air in a G-String?" (minus the question mark, of course) I'd make the change but I'm not familiar enough with the interface and probably don't even have the authority to do so in the first place.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
