* Deconstructed in ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai''. Tamura is the most hormonal of the major characters by far. Tamura lost his virginity in middle school to his abusive, straight crush. Prior to that he had {{Erotic Dream}}s where he was a nymphomanic woman and he believe these were visions of a past life, though they're really [[spoiler:related to his repressed memories of being molested when he was younger]]. After breaking ties with his crush, he began hanging around older men in drag and tried to have sex with at least two different characters (and actually does [[spoiler:with Marika]] to an extent). His promiscuous behavior has less to do with him being gay and more to do with [[spoiler:his issues over his past abuse]].



* Inverted on ''Series/StargateUniverse''. The straight characters have a fair amount of relationship drama, and the sole gay couple (Wray and Sharon) have the most stable relationship on the show.

* ''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.

* This is a big part of ''Webcomic/BlurTheLines''. Though the main characters, Rick and Drew, are partners, they frequently seek out sex with other men. They are also both OK with the other's promiscuity, leading to a MyGirlIsASlut scenario.

* As mentioned elsewhere on this wiki, used to terrible effect in a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode where Peter is given an injection that makes him gay. The supposedly pro-gay rights episode presents the injection as making him hyper promiscuous and being even less interested in supporting his children than usual, [[AbusiveParents which is saying something]].
** One of the gags in the episode is predicated on the idea that every gay man will have sex with strangers ''in public'' unless given very specific instructions not to.
** It also implies that any gay guy would be totally willing to have an 11-way with strangers. It would've been better if it were only Peter like this, because it would make sense for straight Peter to want an 11-way with 10 ladies, but it's still pretty bad.
* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' when Homer, as a love counselor, advises the men who want to break up with their dance partner in a gay club to simply turn to their right.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "D-Yikes!" Mrs. Garrison thinks this is true of lesbians and tries to hit on one who's clearly spoken for. When the town was hit by the metrosexual trend, the then-male Mr. Garrison was eager to spend some quality time with one of any number of men he mistook for gay.

Added DiffLines:

Lesbians have their own version of this trope; lesbians are stereotyped as women stepping in the roles of men, which includes emulating the male sexual appetite. This is part of the basis behind the LesbianVampire trope, who is a woman that preys on other women and "transforms" them into creatures like her.

* Completely torn apart in "Spring Break Anthem" by TheLonelyIsland. It's a song praising all kind of "cool", immature, and irresponsible behaviors of questionable morality like binge drinking, sex with lots of women, taking drugs, vandalism, being all out disrespectful to women, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking gay marriage]]. Which is portrayed as the [[StraightGay total opposite]].

Alan is gay. Alan loves Bob. Bob may or may not be gay (or bi) and may or may not eventually partner with Alan; the story needs more time to bring that out one way or the other.

Alan, meanwhile, happens across a good-looking guy; blushes; and, within the space of a night, is picking up his clothes from the guy's floor. He may then go on to do as much with half a dozen more guys before the story gets around to answering whether or not he can hook up with Bob.

If this were a heterosexual relationship that we're talking about, it would clearly say something about the character of Alan as an individual (can't keep his pants up, even while waiting for his "love" to accept him...let's not even talk about how this would look if [[MyGirlIsNotASlut Alan were Alice instead]]).

There are certainly [[CelibateHero celibate characters who have heterosexual urges that they choose to control]]. Gay characters who choose to be celibate for any significant length of time are almost unheard of. If they're celibate, it's because they can't find a mate, or because they are forced into an abnormal situation.

to:

Alan This stereotype is gay. Alan loves Bob. Bob may or may not be in fact the ''reason'' why gay (or bi) people are called "gay." The word changed meanings over the years from "bright and may or may not showy," to "carefree and full of mirth," to "addicted to pleasures" and eventually partner with Alan; to "sexually promiscuous." Sometime in the story needs more time to bring that out one way or early 20th century, the other.
