Assunto:  Are you hot?
 
Mensagem: 

There is nothing wrong with asking "Are you hot?"  Or "Are you cold, chilly, hungry, tired, sleepy, thirsty, or from Peru.

Does "Are you hot?" have another meaning, a double-meaning?  Sure.  I can think of two:  (1) Are you pretty/sexy?  (2) Are you sexually excited?  Context is everything.
