The sexual attraction that exists between members of the same sex. It is not necessarily homosexual; rather it exists as a tension between heterosexual norms and expectations and natural attraction between two members of the same gender. It exists strongly in single-gender spaces, such as sports teams, rap music and pro-wrestling, however it is acted out through heterosexual norms, often placing a wedge between the homoerotic tension and the hetero norms of the space.
In professional wrestling, many of the moves are eerily reminiscent of sexual positions. The tension of these positions, in combination with extreme close proximity, creates homoeroticism. This is subverted by using derogatory slang towards homosexuals and women in particular, in order to reassert traditional masculinity and heterosexuality.
