Does Indonesian use "Panas" (hot) as a synonym for attractive like English does?

i think to refer attractiveness it's not translated into "panas", so just use the word "hot"

Although the translation is technically correct, it could be misinterpreted. "Hot" is colloquial for "attractive." If you were referring to a female, "her body is hot" would almost certainly be misinterpreted. Of course, it depends on the context.

Would it? We refer to people having "hot bodies", or to people "being hot", but not normally to their "bodies being hot".

How would you say, "His hot body..."?

My guess is 'tubuh panas dia' or 'tubuhnya yang panas'. But wait for a more educated guess :))
