Frot is a slang term (ult. from the French verb frotter, "to rub") describing a form of male/male non-penetrative sex, where two men engage in the rubbing of erect penis on erect penis — typically while fully nude and in a frontal embrace that allows simultaneous kissing, and often with a shared understanding that the frot is not merely foreplay to some other type of sex, but will instead continue until both men reach orgasm and ejaculation. Owing to its non-penetrative character, frot has the safe sex advantage of drastically minimizing transmission of HIV and other infections without the inconvenience and expense of condoms and special lubricants.

Coined sometime in the late 1990s, the word frot (rhyming with "dot") was shortened from the term "frottage" (rhyming with "massage"), a more generic and unisex term for various types of non-penetrative genital rubbing.
