Hi you guys! According to "https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictio ... lish/tasty", "tasty" means "used to describe someone who is very sexually attractive". Is "tasty" used to describe men or women only?

Your answers will be highly appreciated

No, it can used for cars, mechanical objects, clothes ... pretty much anything, although there are exceptions, including food.

I think, in a non-food sense, that it is stylish and functional, something one should want to own.

I was making some gears, outputting consistent changes in speed within each rotation from a constant input, and my friend described them as "tasty" .
