Coined by British writer Mark Simpson - who also coined the term 'metrosexual' - in OUT magazine in 2006.
Used to describe the phenomenon of professional male athletes such as David Beckham, Freddie Ljunberg and various naked rugby players, posing naked - or almost naked - and oiled up in homoerotic poses on the side of buses to sell men's briefs and nudie male calendars.
Also used to describe inadvertently, sometimes comically pornographic-seeming snaps of sporting action - usually male team sports where one player appears to be mounting another or giving a blow job.
- Mark Simpson, 'The London Times', July 2008
When athletes are coincidentally looking as if they were exercising whatever form of sexual intercourse, and right in that instant some sneaky journalist takes a picture of them.
