1.) A desperate and deluded heterosexual male who resorts to deceiving women by professing to be homosexual and acting/dressing/speaking accordingly as a ploy to sleep with women. Reminiscent of Cuba Gooding Jr.'s performance in the movie Boat Trip.

(note: this never really works!)

2.) A heterosexual male who claims to be gay in order to gain the trust of a woman in order to be put in intimate situtions that are generally reserved only for those in her life that are neutral in matters of her sex life such as a sister, their mother, or their girl BFF.
(i.e. the woman letting the male watch her dress and undress trying on different outfits and asking for feedback as most women are under the impression homosexuals have a keen fashion sense and having a male that they can completely be themselves around without worry of sexual advances)

3.) a desperate male who has had terrible luck with women and as a result sleeps with other men convincing themselves they're a homosexual (regardless of the fact they have to think about women while they're having gay sex in order to orgasm) out of spite towards women until they finally are fed up with getting cock and goes back to women.

Someone who gives every appearance of being homosexual, but is in fact heterosexual. A fauxmosexual male may display metrosexual attention to hygiene, style, and culture, have an effeminate speech pattern or display effeminate behavoir in gesticulation and mannerism, and/or give the basic impression of being gay. A faumosexual female may be fairly butch in appearance and style, display a militant feminist ("feminazi") attitude toward men, or show strong proclivities toward Lilith Fair or other female empowerment. These are the people you "just know" are gay, but who seem to show proof to the contrary.
People say that Tom Cruise is gay, but I think he's just a fauxmosexual.

I work with this guy who wears nuthugger jeans and talks with a total San Fran lisp, but apparently he's not actually a fag; he's just a fauxmosexual.

I totally thought Liz was a dyke because of her shaved head and leather, but I met her boyfriend yesterday. Talk about textbook fauxmosexual.

1. n - a straight man/boy, who puts on the affectation of gayness to get attention and affection from gay boys, with the underhanded goal of attracting girls. While this may include some of the elements of metrosexuality, such as fashion, and pampering, it is more concerned with mannerisms, and body language, and tastes associated with, and directed toward, gay men.

(see also: fauxmo, fauxmophobic, fag hag)

adj. Someone who acts a bit gay to get the attention of the opposite sex. Predetory and pre-maditated, one plays on the intrigue of a stranger by flirting a bit camply(if male) to get the female interested then revealing, (much later) that they are not. Female then relieved. Allows outragous flirting from man with little or now risk of slap of turn of back.
