A very very very close friend of the opposite sex. A woman is a man's platonic friend if she's his best friend (or a very close friend of his), but nothing more.

And yes, contrary to what's been said earlier, men CAN have platonic friends, just like women.
person1: Ashley and Brandon are so close to each other, they spend all of their time together. I'm sure they're dating!

Person2: Not necessarily, i asked Ashley yesterday and she told me that there was nothing between them, they're just platonic friends.

A very close male friend that a woman has. Their relationship is strictly "just friends" and usually never involves anything sexual. Men do not have platonic friends, just simply women they haven't fucked yet.
Somewhere along the way, John made a wrong turn and slipped into the friends zone by not making a sexual move on Cindy.

Joe: "Do you know what a platonic friend is to a woman?"

Max: "No"

Joe: "A dick in a glass case. In case of an emergency, BREAK GLASS"
