Definition - What does Frotting mean?

Frotting is a sexual fetish where the fetishist is sexually aroused by or interested in rubbing their genitals on unsuspecting strangers in public places. It can also refer to unpenetrative male sexual activity where the other party is aware of the sexual nature of the activity.

Kinkly explains Frotting

Frotting is a practice that is popular among homosexual males that do not want to engage in anal sex for a variety of reasons. One common reason to engage in frotting is to avoid the transfer of fluids to protect against STIs during anal intercourse. The non-penetrative nature of the activity is a safer method of sexual activity. When frotting is performed as a fetish activity, individuals will generally become aroused by rubbing up against strangers in public places without their knowledge. This could include public areas such as concerts or crowded train stations.
