Is this the most homoerotic sport?
We’re here to make the case that wrestling is the most homoerotic sport. We are prepared to fight about it – if, by fighting, you mean we get to wear a spandex onesie and rub up against each other?
What is wrestling?
The style of wrestling known as Greco-Roman was contested at the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.
The rules are fairly simple — two wrestlers are scored for their performance during two three-minute periods. The bout can be terminated early by a pin. The emphasis is on throws, as holds below the waist are forbidden.
Taking its name from the ancient Mediterranean civilisations from which this style of wrestling emerged, this is a sport that’s popular across Europe and North America.
What do wrestlers wear?
Wrestlers compete in a wrestling singlet — a one-piece spandex or lycra item that clings tightly to every curve of the body, leaving nothing for the opponent to grab onto.
What makes wrestling homoerotic?

Anything that involves stripped down men crunching their bodies together is always going to have our attention, but add some oil into the mix and things get really interesting.
Kink.com really defined the genre for naked oil wrestling with their Naked Kombat series.
