Frotteurism

Frotteurism (from the French verb frotter, "one who rubs") is the act of achieving sexual gratification by rubbing one's (clothed or naked) body against another person. Frotteurism carries a connotation of "anonymous and discreet rubbing" in a public place—like on a crowded train. The contact may be mutual or a one-way perpetration. A person who practices frotteurism is known as a frotteur.

Usually, such nonconsensual sexual contact is viewed as a criminal offense: a form of sexual assault albeit often classified as a misdemeanor with minor legal penalties. Conviction may result in a sentence or psychiatric treatment.

The term frotteur was coined by sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing in his book Psychopathia sexualis (1886).

Frotteurism is not to be confused with frottage, a form of consensual, non-penetrative sexual rubbing of body parts, and frot, a term used among homosexual men to refer to penis to penis rubbing in a conventional private context.
