In the title disulfide, C16H18S2, the mol­ecule is twisted about the central S—S bond [the C—S—S—C torsion angle = 93.24 (7)°] and the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 72.84 (7)°, indicating an almost orthogonal relationship; the methyl groups are orientated to the same side of the mol­ecule. The crystal packing features C—H⋯.π inter­actions which consolidate a three-dimensional architecture.
