epicene-from Angle of Repose, by Wallace Stegner, p 55.

Looked up in Webster's New World Dictionary, Third College Edition

epicene is an adjective meaning (in this context) belonging to one sex but having characteristics of the other, or of neither; specifically, effeminate; unmanly. (From the Greek word epikoinos, common.)

My sentence: The dancer's epicene build captured the attention of all the males in the room as well as the women's.

What is your sentence?
