A split-attraction-model term/affix for specifying physical-based and/or appearance-based attraction and orientation (relative to genders and gender-based presentations exclusively). This can be affixed to any orientation term, to create terms such as rholesbian (physical attraction to women/feminine and/or thelinine aligned people as someone who is not a cis man and feels the label of lesbian applies to them), corpansexual (physical sexual attraction regardless of gender), rhondhomoromantic (appearance-based romantic attraction to same or similar genders), and many more. The term rho-/rhond- comes from the Sindarin word “rhond” meaning body, while cor- comes from a shortening of the word “corporeal”.
