* ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'',
** In "A Date with the Health Inspector", a character's fear of being raped in prison is used as a comedic device. In fact, fear of homosexual prison rape is presented as the driving force of neighbor Tom's personality, to explain his "non-black" behavior.
** There was also a ''Series/ToCatchAPredator'' clip, where Chris Hansen (Chris "Handsome" to the would-be predator) was raped by the man he was supposed to have caught looking for a young boy. Turns out the guy [[GenreSavvy knew he was being set up]], and only wanted to rape Chris Hansen.

** There In "A Date with the Booty Warrior", there was also a ''Series/ToCatchAPredator'' clip, where ''[[Series/{{Dateline}} To Catch a Predator]]'' parody scene, in which Chris Hansen (Chris "Handsome" to the would-be predator) was gets raped by a man who calls himself the man "Booty Warrior", who pretended to be a pedophile just so he was supposed to have caught looking for a young boy.

A man raping someone is ([[BlackComedyRape almost]]) always depicted as a horrible thing, and the source of much [[RapeAsDrama drama]]. Unless the rapist's victim is another man, in which case it's commonly dismissed, ignored, or even PlayedForLaughs. It doesn't matter if it's through force, deception, coercion, or drugs, male-on-male rape is almost always an object of derision -- against the victim. Things that would not even be remotely acceptable are now fair game, rape presented as somehow fundamentally different just by changing the genders from "real" (male on female) rape.

There are multiple {{Double Standard}}s at work here. First and foremost, men being on average physically stronger than women, they are expected to be strong and dominant - including during intercourse - and rape is thought of as something that only happens to women, partly due to their weaker bodies. With this postulate in place, men aren't supposed to be victims, especially not of anything sex-related since a "real man" is always the one putting their penis into other people. Thus, the victim of male-on-male rape has been humiliated and defeated in the worst way possible as well as robbed of his masculinity, while the perpetrator will strangely be considered as exceptionally virile for having been able to sexually dominate a man. Plus, remember that AllMenArePerverts and always want sex, so there's the perception men ''can't'' be raped in the first place because they're too horny to say no. Hence a man who ''is'' raped is weak and unmanly, and [[InsaneTrollLogic therefore]] he's comically pathetic and must have [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass deserved it]].

* Early on in the plot of SweetPollyOliver historical drama ''Manga/KazeHikaru'', a few male characters are shown being markedly attracted to the {{Bifauxnen}} protagonist. One of them, Kanji, makes increasingly desperate bids to get into "his" pants, which are all portrayed comedically -- up to the part where he lures "him" away into an empty building with promises of information about his family and attempts to take advantage of him. Uneasy chuckles are swiftly crushed.

* ''Manga/KarateShoukoushiKohinataMinoru'' has Pedro, a [[FunnyForeigner Brazilian martial artist]] that was revealed to have been the masked rapist that targeted male members of different martial arts clubs. He ends up having his sights set on Minoru, the protagonist of the series. This is played entirely for comedy, and the fact that he was a serial rapist that went around raping boys ended up being completely forgiven by the main characters, who ended up ''getting him to join their karate club because he's strong''. It gets worse - he ends up being assigned to rooming with Minoru. Afterwards, numerous times he tries to rape Minoru (with failed results, thankfully), and all of these instances are made to make the readers go, "Ha ha ha! That wacky Pedro!"

* In ''Comicbook/{{Preacher}}'', Hoover phones up what he thinks is an escort service to get his boss, Herr Starr, laid. Unfortunately, he orders a man who rapes Starr in an alley. While parts of the aftermath ''are'' played for laughs, Starr's reaction isn't -- the next morning, he attempts to strangle Hoover. Later, this incident is revealed to be only the overture to [[ButtMonkey Starr's series-long]] HumiliationConga (the next step of which is his realization that he can no longer achieve any sort of sexual satisfaction ''without'' anal penetration), shelving it right back under [[BlackComedy (very, very dark) comedic relief]] again.

* DC's ''ComicBook/{{Hitman}}'' has got a troupe of unusual "friends", or they serve as his sidekicks, you got Dogwelder, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who welds dogs to people,]] Sixpack, the perpetual drunk, and Bueno Excelenté. With the power to ... rape people while going "Bueno, Bueno, Bueno." Victims include the knocked out Lobo, and a drugged Kyle Rayner, Green Lantern, the last of which was not only treated as a joke in its original appearance, but occasionally used as a BrickJoke afterward. In a separate throw-away gag, Bueno is shown surprising a murderous male scientist. A newspaper article later reports the death of said scientist due to severe internal injuries.

* Used in ''Series/RedDwarf'' when Lister sprinkles Rimmer with a sexual magnetism virus. The latter is then surrounded by burly male prisoners, and we fade to black. (That we've previously only ever seen said virus work on women - wouldn't Lister himself be affected? - is ignored for the sake of the joke.)

** Invoked on an episode, which had Carter in jail. His cellmate, a stereotypical ScaryBlackMan, approaches him, unbuckling his pants, declaring, "I've got something for you". Carter screams in panic...and the man reveals a sore on his leg that has been bothering him -- Carter had mentioned that he was a doctor. It's obvious that the guy had no intention of assaulting him, but we're supposed to find Carter's panic, in addition to the UnfortunateImplications of his would-be assailant being a black man, amusing.
** Averted in a different episode, though, where a prisoner was brought to the hospital after being injured in a fight. It soon became obvious that he had been raped and the incident was handled appropriately, even becoming a {{Tearjerker}} when [[spoiler:the patient is diagnosed with HIV and actually says that he's ''glad''... because he's serving a life sentence and won't have to put up with the rapes anymore.]]

* In ''Series/{{Friends}}'', there is an episode where Joey talks about a great tailor he has had since childhood, and refers Chandler to him. Chandler goes there, and comes back horrified. He informs Joey that his tailor "is a very bad man!". Joey defends the guy, explaining to him that "that's how they do pants", but Ross says no, that is definitely not how they do pants.

* Seemingly averted by ''Series/NipTuck'' after Christian is raped by the Carver - but the impression left that all it takes for him to get over being violated is a three-way with him, Kimber and Kit (the ''detective investigating the Carver'') is more than a little hard to take.

* [[Series/TheTonightShow Jay Leno]] once joked about Karl Rove's various illegal scandals, "I think Karl Rove is getting a little worried.

** One strip has two friends engaging in a hypothetical situation about having sex with twelve men for a million dollars. The second man agrees...he'd gladly pay that much to sleep with twelve guys at once.

When he ends up in prison, TheStinger reveals a group of men showering. One drops the soap, and bends to pick it up...and a huge shadow looms over him. The dropper cringes in terror; a few seconds later, he comes running from the bathroom with bubbles shooting from his rear end.

A particularly twisted example is in the episode "Little Orphan Hero", where Captain Hero, in his childhood montage, disobeys his mother by going to a keg party dressed as a promiscuous woman. At the party, he is promptly gang raped on top of a pinball machine, shouting in a woman's voice, "Leave me alone!", in a parody of the film ''Film/TheAccused'', despite being by far the largest man there (and having super-powers). Captain Hero also sodomized his parents and Xandir in an attempt to [[LaserGuidedAmnesia erase their memories]] -- an over the top parody of Franchise/{{Superman}}'s amnesia-inducing kiss to Lois Lane in ''Superman II''.

Conversely, audiences may go as far as to ''actively wish'' for a character perceived as a bad man to be a victim of male-on-male rape. In police TV shows, cops will routinely threaten suspects with jail, and the [[PrisonRape "big horny men"]] inside. At the end, when the criminal is arrested, the cops will make a point to tell him that he will spend the next xx years of his life as a buttboy for the [[BlackComedyRape burly rapists]] who fill the prison.

The panicked trainer immediately starts talking...at which point Danny reveals that the supposed criminal is a fellow cop who's married! To a woman! [[SarcasmMode Isn't that funny?]]

* Implied at the end of an episode of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', when Earl punches his BadBoss in the face, which leads to the latter's wife finding out he'd been [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on her]], [[TheMistress his girlfriend]] finding out he was married to someone else the whole time (thus lying to ''her'' as well), his wife kicking him out of the house and finding money he stole from the fast-food restaurant he managed while giving him a DefenestrateAndBerate routine, and finally him going to {{Prison}}. He had a collection of "World's Best [Whatever]" mugs, and when he's in prison (after losing both his wife and his girlfriend), he's drinking coffee out of a tin mug with the words "World's Best Bottom" scrawled on it in marker, while his cellmate looks on. It overlaps with KarmicRape.

* As some examples below point out, this is very common in the works of GarthEnnis. Male on female rape? Instant MoralEventHorizon. Male on male rape? Almost always PlayedForLaughs.

*Season two of "American Crime" revolves around a male rape accusation that most people don’t take seriously [[spoiler:especially when it is revealed the victim, Taylor, isn’t heterosexual and that he had been flirting with his rapist prior to their encounter.]]
**Subverted for the fact that the season as a whole is about how male on male rape isn’t dealt with properly (both in real life and in pop culture) and the repercussions the taboo has on masculinity and rape culture
