* In ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'', Sakura is a lesbian with a tremendous crush on the main character in his [[AttractiveBentGender female form]]. [[spoiler:Later, it turns out that she has a SplitPersonality which gets off on sexually brainwashing women, to the point that she has her own harem of slaves and is [[BedFullOfWomen shown in bed (implied to be post-coitus)]] with them multiple times. Notably is that she is the ''only'' female character shown to be sexually-active at all, and that the other female leads all prefer Senou in his male form.

The LGBT news media tend to go to the opposite extreme. A common trope in those media is that gay men are unrealistically picky in their sexual or romantic choices.

* Unlike the lustful men and women of ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'''s Hell, the homosexual in Hell are not grouped in pairs, but travel in large bands. This implies sodomy doesn't have the same intimacy and union of baby-makin' sex (Dante's words).
* David Reuben, the author of ''Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex but Were Afraid to Ask'', sincerely believed that this trope was inviolable law. Along with the perpetuation of the myth that Coca-Cola made an effective spermicide, the preaching of this stereotype was what made the book infamous after its initial popularity died down.



* [[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Vanyel]] is practically celibate when he doesn't have a lifebonded partner, but it takes his father most of his life to get over the knee-jerk assumption that being gay means being not only promiscuous but also a pedophile.

Along with the perpetuation of the myth that Coca-Cola made an effective spermicide, the preaching of this stereotype was what made the book infamous after its initial popularity died down.
* In Francine Rivers' ''Literature/TheMarkOfTheLion'' trilogy, this is played straight with every major homosexual character in the series. {{Justified}} since most of the heterosexual characters are pretty promiscuous, too. It ''is'' AncientRome. Averted with Prometheus after his conversion in the last book, mostly because he [[{{Gayngst}} doesn't want to be gay]].
* Played with in German novel ''Gottes Bodenpersonal - Eine Unwahrscheinliche Liebesgeschichte'' - one of the protagonists is a male hooker with male customers, but it's just a job. What he really wants is a romantic candlelight dinner with a nice, gentlemanly man who opens doors for him. Another protagonist is a ChasteHero, who never got around to look for a partner, and was only slightly worried by the fact that he never met a nice girl at church. When he falls in love with a man, he is worried about having his heart broken because of this trope. [[spoiler: Both of them are shown to become happily monogamous, and even adopt a child together.]]

* In the ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' episode "Moonlight Desires" Marco catches his boyfriend Dlyan in bed making out with another guy. Dylan tells Marco that he wants to be free to have an open relationship and see other people as well as Marco. Marco says no so they break up because Dylan would rather have multiple partners than have Marco.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** {{Downplayed}} by Ser Loras Tyrell; he is rather easily seduced by an attractive male prostitute, and exchanges [[UnresolvedSexualTension significant glances]] with the [[BiTheWay openly bisexual]] Oberyn Martell not long after his lover Renly Baratheon is killed. He mostly comes across as this in comparison to his [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire literary incarnation]], who falls into a deep depression after Renly's death, is apparently celibate, and shows signs of being a DeathSeeker.
** PlayedStraight in "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", when Olenna declares, "Renly Baratheon shagged half the stableboys in the Seven Kingdoms."



* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Kenny becomes this after his ComingOutStory in the {{Pilot}}, especially after some {{Flanderization}}. Though he ''does'' get into a couple of monogamous relationships during the series.
* ''Series/NeverWipeTearsWithoutGloves'' shines a light on this. In the eighties this trope was generally believed to be true of gay men which in combination with the rapid spread of AIDS was used against them. The characters in the series land on both sides of the prejudice. Paul ReallyGetsAround and as much as Rasmus loves Benjamin he wants an open relationship. Benjamin, on the other hand, only sleeps with Rasmus and Seppo and Lars-Åke are in a monogamous relationship. The book series gives a lot more depth to the trope. For the majority of the promiscuous characters the desire to sleep around is rooted in the knowledge that they're not accepted outside of their own community. Casual sex with other men becomes a way to express their sexuality after so many years of hiding it.



* Stuart on the original UK version of ''Series/QueerAsFolk'' even told Vince he wasn't really gay, but "a straight guy who has sex with men", because he preferred monogamy to sleeping around.
** It's even worse in the American version (pictured above), where there are two monogamous couples, and the rest seem to wake up in a new bed every day, and in one of these couples the term "monogamous" has rather wide definitions. Any gay couple who chooses to settle down is accused of conforming to heterosexual norms or turning into "lesbians" by Brian. Only Brian really disbelieves in monogamy, [[spoiler:but Justin tries to change him]].

* Nicky and Big Boo in ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' both seem to have very high sex drives and though they both were monogamous at some points (Nicky with the '[[SituationalSexuality prison gay]]' Morello, and Boo with a series of 'Mrs. Boos'), they start sleep around a lot after that, often causing 'cliterference' between them, which resulted in staging a fucking contest. That said, there are also plenty of lesbian characters in the series, who aren't promiscuous at all.
* ''Series/{{Oz}}'': Defied in Richie Hanlon's case, though some of the other inmates do treat him like he's one.
-->'''Hanlon:''' I only suck the cocks I ''wanna'' suck.



* In ''Series/TheSavageEye'', the homophobic Mick 'The Bull' Daly claims that all 'quaaares' will try to trick you into 'riding' them.



* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E11LARPAndTheRealGirl "LARP And The Real Girl"]], Charlie Bradbury says she became queen of Moondoor for the girls. She makes eyes at quite a few maidens and an actual fairy.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', Meighan's skirt-chasing is her biggest weakness (and was, for some time, her only real personality trait). Ally even depended on this as part of her plan to [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim Break Rikk's Heart To Save Him]] -- in fact, it was the only part of the plan that worked. [[note]]Ironically, this happened shortly after Meighan had shown her first sign of depth by forging a lasting friendship with Tim... based on his HAVING exactly the self-control she wouldn't have with Ally.[[/note]]
* A great running gag of this trope is Batuo the main gay Asian in ''Webcomic/TalesOfAGayAsian'' though he tends to like big fat meaty...White guys.

* Deconstructed in Reinaldo Arenas' memoir of life as a gay man under Castro's regime. The promiscuity of many of the gay characters is presented as a reaction to the choking repression of their society, as well as a result of pragmatism - when your latest lover may be hauled off to a concentration camp without you ever even finding out, there's not much room for stable monogamy.

* Inverted in Joe Haldeman's award-winning SF novel ''The Forever War''. As a population-control measure the Earth government in the future encourages homosexuality. When the hero and his girlfriend, a hetero couple, are hospitalized together their gay doctor teases them with this trope. "Still in separate beds?"
