boy toy

An attractive younger man who is linked with an older woman, for social activities, sexual favors, or the like. In effect he is the counterpart of a sugar daddy. This slangy term dates from about 1980 and may be used disparagingly or admiringly, depending on the context. A headline in the magazine Maxim ran “Be Her Boy Toy: Younger Guys and Older Women” (June 2004). The term, which is on its way to becoming a cliché, may also be applied to a homosexual relationship, that is, a younger man kept by an older man. It is also put as toy boy.
