Definition - What does Homoeroticism mean?

Homoeroticism refers to a sexual desire between two individuals of the same sex. In this case, it is the sexual desire that is the focus, not the gender of the individuals. It describes only an attraction or a tendency for erotic emotion to be focused on someone of the same sex.

Kinkly explains Homoeroticism

Homoeroticism differs from homosexuality in that with homoeroticism, it is the sexual desire that is the focus. Another difference is that homoeroticism is temporary. Homoeroticism need not escalate to action, it can be as simple as a strong sexual tension or attraction between two members of the same sex. Homoeroticism is a concept used in art, specifically that of Ancient Greece and Rome.
