* ''YuriOnIce'' doesn't have a double-standard between heterosexual and gay couples, and includes plenty of other indicators of affection and milestones in its central relationship between Yuri and Victor [[spoiler: such as their eventual engagement]]. However, director [[WordOfGod Sayo Yamamoto]] did discuss this trope when she said that TV censorship required the arm in the way of the BigDamnKiss. She also said that she still had to fight to include that scene at all.

%%YuriOnIce is not an example of this trope and shouldn't be added. See the points about double standards in the main description.

* ''Series/{{Skins}}'' received this criticism in its first generation with the relatively little screen time and focus given to gay character Maxxie and his love interests, compared to the various opposite-sex couples on the show (even then, it's a relatively downplayed example of this trope as he's seen kissing boys and about to get oral sex). However, they promptly subverted the trope in the second generation with lesbian couple Naomi and Emily, widely considered one of the best same-sex couples on TV ''ever'', and basically an Alpha Couple by Series 4. They opened the floodgates again, though, with the American remake, where the show even focused more on the "lesbian" character's confusion over and sex with a boy than they did on her relationships and sex ''with other girls.'' Some also see the change in Mini's portrayal between the fifth and sixth British series as this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast'' the live action version has LeFou be gay, but only shows him with a 'love interest' in the a quick final frame of the film. In fact, he dances with a female a few seconds before. His 'love interest' also is forced into drag earlier in the film and, of course, enjoys it.
