The complete molecule of the title compound, C19H32S2, is generated by crystallorgaphic twofold symmetry, with three C atoms lying on the axis. The Car-C-S-C (ar = aromatic) torsion angle is 156.2 (2) °. In the crystal, the molecules are linked by very weak C-H...S interactions, generating [001] chains.
