Any situation which is made, sometimes for comic effect, sometimes for dramatic effect, to look like another situation -- not in the sense that it is [[NotWhatItLooksLike mistaken for that other situation]] by any of the characters, just in the sense that we the audience see the resemblance. The characters do not. Alternatively it can refer to an [[CaptainErsatz ersatz]] of something more familiar that the audience would immediately recognize in subtext, in order to make it look less {{Anvilicious}}, but it doesn't always succeed in fulfilling the latter. The situation doesn't always have to mean anything sexual, however it is the most common use of the trope.

* Kirei Kotomine from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' is pretty much a representation of a closet gay man. From his attempts to ''correct'' himself, his marriage to an ill girl named Claudia for ''salvation'', as well his interest in Kiritsugu(who is with Irisviel) and Shirou(the not so different between them).

** One of the funnier ones involving the Dark Eldar are the ones among the kabals who secretly trade recordings of Wyches in the arena, as certain named ones are far more popular than others. While the Wyches fight purely gladiatorial combat, they must remain graceful and beautiful, and those who watch the recordings get an almost euphoric reaction to them. In other words, they're secretly trading bootleg sex tapes!

** Slaanesh, hermaphroditic god(dess) of [[TheHedonist hedonism]], is one giant drug abuse metaphor. Seriously, his/her worshipers give us too many examples to choose from.

** A non-sexual example of this trope: The Imperium, encouraged by the official state religion, the Ministorum, hates, fears, and persecutes psykers, even though the Imperium could not function at all without them, and even though the entire Imperium, under that same state religion, worships a psyker.

We should also mention the entire Imperium, under that same state religion, worships a psyker.

* The musical ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', which tells the life of the first US Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton in a style infused by hip-hop and R&B songs, came about when writer-star Lin-Manuel Miranda realised that the story of Hamilton's life was in many ways similar to the classic hip-hop AntiHero narrative. Both are about a young man from an impoverished and socially unrespectable background clawing himself up from the gutter to a position of power in an atmosphere of revolutionary violence, only to make many enemies through betrayal and conflict which eventually leads to his violent downfall.
