The word 'hot' in English is usually perceived as:
an adjective that conveys the degree of heat possessed by an object.
A French translation for 'hot' in this context would be 'chaud'.
However, it has become increasingly common to call a person 'hot' which conveys the meaning that that person is extremely physically attractive. This probably stems from the meaning that 'hot' also refers to:
filled with passionate excitement, anger, or other strong emotion.
Hence anything that can induce such a feeling is also termed as 'hot'.
My question is: Is there any French equivalent of such a notion. For example, how would I say "Damn, she looks so hot, I want to take her home with me tonight".
Of course in English, various other phrases have also sprung up such as 'sizzling' and 'smoking' hot. I wonder how French speakers convey such notions.
