I'm thinking about how Catullus 48 fits in here. I wonder if you'd say Catullus appropriates Sapphic sexuality one further in this male-homoerotic kissing poem? Here's the whole epigram for reference:

Mellitos oculos tuos, Iuventi,
si quis me sinat usque basiare,
usque ad milia basiem trecenta
nec numquam videar satur futurus,
non si densior aridis aristis
sit nostrae seges osculationis.
