Noun, Combined term fraternal (brotherly) and romance

A Framance is a strong relationship between two males where one or both of the males are straight and they are having sex for mutual convenience and pleasure.

Entomology: Framilian is a derived word that orginated with the word bromance. Bromance is a portmanteau of the words bro or brother and romance. Editor Dave Carnie coined the term in the skateboard magazine Big Brother in the 1990s to refer specifically to the sort of relationships that develop between skaters who spent a great deal of time together. The word was intended for only platonic friendships so a second word framance was coined to described a similar relationship with a sexual element.
