Definition
relating to pleasing the body's senses (in contrast to the intellect) — especially of sexual sensation
  • Mr. Beebe, who loved the art of the past, was reminded of a favourite theme, the Santa Conversazione, in which people who care for one another are painted chatting together about noble things—a theme neither sensual nor sensational, and therefore ignored by the art of to-day.
