    Default eye candy

    Does "eye candy" have a sexual connotation?
    Can't it be used to describe beautiful scenes?
    For example, is "the specutacular mountainous view was an eye candy for me." wrong?

    Default Re: eye candy

    It's normally used for attractive people, and without the indefinite article- she's eye-candy.
