The term was popularized by gay male activists who disparaged the practice of anal sex, but has since evolved to encompass a variety of preferences, including wet clothes. Owing to its non-penetrative character, Frot has the safe sex advantage of minimizing the transmission risk for HIV/AIDS.

A Gender Fluid person may at any time identify as male, female, neutrois, or any other non-binary identity, or some combination of identities.
