An androsexual can mean two different things;

1. Someone who has sexual feelings or inclinations towards the male sex. It is a term derived from the Greek word ‘andros’, meaning man.

2. Someone who feels a sexual attraction towards people who define themselves as being any variation of gender neutral or non-gendered. This sexual orientation is similar to bisexuality.

This particular term applies mainly to genderqueer individuals who do not necessarily fall within the lines of heterosexuality or homosexuality.


Mike, who identified himself as genderqueer, insisted that he was not homosexual for liking men. Instead, he preferred the term Androsexual.
