A new term for the term “lilo dick” has been introduced to describe a man who is asexual, says Australian broadcaster TV4.
The new term, which will be in use from now until at least the end of March, was developed by a group of academics from Victoria’s Griffith University and University of Melbourne.
The researchers said they felt the term, coined by the late sociologist James Moore, was too “specific and dismissive” of the term and needed to be “translated into an umbrella term to better represent the wider community”.
“Lilo dick was the term used by [Moore’s] colleague, [David] Boulton, to describe men who are attracted to other men, or who are sexual with other men,” Professor Nicky Higginson, the head of the Department of Gender and Sexuality Studies at Griffith, said in a statement.
“We wanted to develop a new term to encompass all men who feel the same way about themselves, and who are interested in and comfortable with being with men.”
The term, to be used in the public domain, will be defined as: “Lilo is a man with a strong desire to be with a man, but who also feels an attraction to a woman, and/or who feels attracted to a non-man.”
“He/she is the type of person who is sexually aroused by other men or with men.”
He has no preference for the sex act but feels attracted by men.
If he is sexually attracted to women, then he/she prefers being with a woman.
He/She is interested in other men.””
If he/he is attracted to non-men, then the sexual act may involve non-consensual touching, kissing, rubbing, or masturbation.
“Professor Higgisson said the term could also refer to a man’s “introversion” or “sexual curiosity” and to the “inversion” of that curiosity towards women.
But the term is also being used to describe women who are “in love with other women”, she said.
While Professor Higgison is no stranger to the term – she coined it herself in a 2007 book on the topic – the term was not initially intended to describe the vast majority of sexual partners.
However, she said the word’s popularity was due to its “unusually broad usage” and its association with the term for “male sex” – something she said “has become a bit of a cliché”.”
‘Lilo dick’ was coined by sociologist JAMES MOORE in 1967The researchers were able to identify more than 500,000 men in the general population who were described as “lili dicks”, the research group’s president, professor Andrew White, told ABC News.””
There’s also an increasing amount of men who identify as lesbian, bisexual, queer, intersex, or queer+ who are also using it, too.”

“It’s a term that has been around for a while,” Professor White said.
“Lili dicking is used to refer to an individual who is attracted, or at least sexually attracted, to a different sex than the one that the other person is.”
There’s nothing unusual about that.
“The research group has since identified more than 100,000 examples of “lilli dicks” from various studies and research projects.
In its most recent survey of men, the research team found the terms “lil lilo” and “lily dicks,” used to be the most common term for sexual partners, but “lillilo” has now been replaced by “lilly” and is now used more often in the media.
Professor White said it was also clear that the term had gained popularity in Australia because of its association in the recent media headlines about transgender people, such as Caitlyn Jenner, who was seen to be transgender.”
That’s the way they’re presenting it. “
[But] the media coverage has been so skewed that Caitlyn is the transgendered Caitlyn.
That’s the way they’re presenting it.
They’re treating Caitlyn as a woman.”
However Professor White cautioned that the study had not identified a single example of a transgender person who was described as a lili dick.
Lily dick is a term used to express an attraction, or a desire for a partner, to another person.
Transgender people who identify with a nonbinary gender identity have long been a target of sexual assault, harassment and other forms of discrimination.
