Slaanesh, also known as the Dark Prince, is the Chaos God of Pleasure, Passion, and Decadence. Lust, pride and self-indulgence are the hallmarks of all who follow him. He is commonly known in the Imperium as the Prince of Pleasure and even the Prince of Chaos. He is the youngest of the Chaos Gods. While generally referred to as a "he" by humans, Slaanesh is actually neither gender with two sets of devilish horns growing from its head. Slaanesh can assume any form; male, female, hermaphrodite or asexual. The name Slaanesh is a corruption of the Eldar term Slaaneth (Slaa meaning "ecstasy" or "pleasure" and Neth meaning "lord" or "prince"; hence, the Prince of Pleasure).

Slaanesh came into existence during the time the Eldar call the Fall. He was born from the Warp-reflection of the decadence and hedonism of the Eldar race at the height of their own interstellar empire. The birth cry of Slaanesh created the immense Warp rift called the Eye of Terror and slew most of the Eldar and their Gods in the Immaterium, except for the Eldar God of War Kaela Mensha Khaine, whose energy was dispersed into many separate pieces scattered across the various Infinity Circuits of the Eldar Craftworlds, and the Laughing God. Other Eldar survivors included the Harlequin, and those Craftworld Eldar who were very far away from the Eldar homeworlds when the Warp rift formed.

Ok, that is actually really cool looking. I usually hate the way Slaaneshi daemons look. They are usually too far on the creepy spectrum end in my opinion. I mean they should be creepy, somewhat horrific, but still somewhat sultry, or sexy.
The old Daemonettes from the third/fourth edition (forget which one it was, just that they were around in the early 2000's), were a lot better than the current Daemonettes, and the ones that the 40K fandom seems to prefer in their art.

I love monstrous beauty like this. +10 for Genzoman.
This picture is mind blowingly good.

in this, he is either a female or hermaphrodite.
Very good depiction of one of the beuiling guises of Slaanesh
