* ArthurCClarke's novel ''Imperial Earth'' includes a line in which the protagonist's best friend is described as "aggressively normal," because he seems to have ''no'' preference between males or females -- most people in the late 23rd Century go both ways but have at least a slight inclination toward one gender or the other.

* The slight majority of the shipping fanfiction about ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is generally female on female pairings. Predilections of the fanfic-writing fanbase aside(see above), the fact that the cast is a good 80% female is a big factor. However, the use of humans, OCs, crossovers, as well as RuleSixtyThree have created plenty of heterosexual ships. Females becoming paired up with characters such as Soarin, Dr. Whooves, Big Macintosh and Spike have become more popular as well. As a result, the shipping fandom of FiM can be equated as this.

** The story collection ''A Fisherman of the Inland Sea'' deals with attempts at instantaneous space travel. The final story, ''Another Story or a Fisherman of the Inland Sea'', introduces the traditional culture of Planet O where pretty much everyone has to be bi for a successful marriage. Marriage is not between two people but four, two men and two women--a man and woman of the Morning moiety and an Evening man and woman. The Morning woman and Evening man, the Evening woman and Morning man, the Morning woman and Evening woman, and the Morning man and Evening man all have sex with each other, meaning every partner in the marriage has a husband and wife from the opposite moiety. (Sex within the moiety is forbidden, so the Morning man/woman and Evening man/woman in the marriage are strictly platonic. In fact, it's perfectly proper for siblings to be the Morning or Evening half of the foursome. Yes, this does mean that you are banging the same woman that your sister is regularly doing, and also the man who would otherwise be your brother-in-law.) The protagonist's mother, a Terran woman of Japanese descent, married in this way to be with the man she loves but finds it strange many years into the marriage, even though she is on good terms with her wife in the marriage.

** In ''The Left Hand of Darkness'' the setting is a planet where the dominant species are asexual most of the time, but periodically go into heat, becoming male or female at random in each encounter (but when two people are having sex, apparently one always becomes male, one female).

* Similar to the [=51st=] century in ''Series/DoctorWho'', the eponymous superhero of ''[[ComicBook/TheAuthority Midnighter]]'' said SorryImGay after being hit on by a woman in the [=96th=] century. She didn't understand and required an explanation, since this far into the future, people aren't even aware of the ''concept'' of monosexuality anymore. Midnighter thought this was hilarious, because it meant all of the {{Heteronormative Crusader}}s in his own century are just wasting their time.

Midnighter thought this was hilarious, because it meant all of the {{Heteronormative Crusader}}s in his own century are just wasting their time.



** Interestingly played with in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E10TheEatersOfLight The Eaters of Light]]": the (almost entirely) bisexual Roman legion find it actually kind of adorable that 2017 native Bill Potts is so "restricted" to same-gender partners.

** Interestingly played with PlayedForLaughs in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E10TheEatersOfLight The Eaters of Light]]": the (almost entirely) bisexual Roman legion find it actually kind of adorable that Light]]". The ancient Romans consider 2017 native Bill Potts Potts's lesbianism to be rather old-fashioned. NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat, it's just that normal people like both instead of restricting themselves like that, that's all. Bill is so "restricted" to same-gender partners.suitably confused.

* Similar to the 51st century in ''Series/DoctorWho'', the eponymous superhero of ''[[ComicBook/TheAuthority Midnighter]]'' once tried to explain to a woman from the 95th century that he's gay. She didn't understand the word, and revealed that in the 95th century ''Everyone Is Bi'' (apparently that's enough of "everyone" that they no longer even have words for monosexuality).

* All of your homies in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' can be romanced, regardless of your character's gender. Even CID, the spherical floating robot, can be romanced. Pierce is notable in that no matter which gender you are, he'll tell you he [[IfItsYouItsOkay doesn't normally swing that way]].

* All Parodying the RomanceSidequest, all of your homies in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' can be romanced, "[[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow romanced]]" with a single button press, regardless of your character's gender. And yes, ''all'' of them. In the same playthrough. As many times as you want. Even CID, the [[{{Robosexual}} spherical floating robot, can be romanced.robot]]. But not Creator/KeithDavid, who just wants to keep things professional. Pierce is notable in that no matter which gender you are, he'll tell you he [[IfItsYouItsOkay doesn't normally swing that way]]. Also, romancing Ben King gives the longest cutscene, in which the Boss seemingly wants to confess his/her feelings for King but CannotSpitItOut, to which King reassures him/her that he already knows what he/she wants to say and that he wants him/her to say it, as the [[BowChickaWowWow porno music]] builds. [[spoiler:[[BaitAndSwitch The Boss just wants him to sign his/her copy of his book]]]].



* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' features six bachelors and five bachelorettes you can romance and marry, regardless of the gender of your player character. Though it's quite played with, as many of them are shipped with an opposite-sex partner if you don't pursue them romantically, and pursuing a same-sex relationship with one will usually cause them to note that [[ClosetKey they've never felt this way about another guy/girl before]].
