androphic or androphilic, are expressions of Greek origin meaning “attracted by the male”.

Androphilic would be the male attracted, affective, sexually or emotionally by other adult males (from 20 to 50 years). According to this classification also pedophiles, ephebophiles and gerontophiles exist.
