* Franchise/{{Neopets}} Is a very odd case; although the site originated for college kids, the eponymous {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s attracted a Periphery Demographic of kids, and the site became LighterAndSofter as a result. This wasn't a bad thing, as TNT still got a lot of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar crap past the radar]], but after Viacom started [[ExecutiveMeddling meddling]], the site became more focused to the kids and started neglecting the older fans, who had become a periphery demographic, and loyalists who started playing as kids but remained on the site through their teens. However, TNT started interacting with the new periphery demographic of older fans by setting up a [[http://www.facebook.com/Neopets facebook page]], and The Faeries' Ruin did a great job of [[WinBACKTheCrowd winning back older fans]]. Not only that, but said older fans are the ones who play the most on the site. They're the writers for the Neopian Times, plot participants, and are the ones who don't get bored and leave after a few months. TNT's trying to reach a happy medium between appeasing the "preteen girl" fans who only want cute things, the "tween boy" fanbase who just like the games, and the older fans who love writing for the Neopian Times and Poetry Gallery, drawing for the Art Gallery and Beauty Contest, and participate in plots.

** The rarely-mentioned but perhaps greatest selling point for the Ouya and it's more powerful successors like the Nvidia Shield TV is emulation. Standing in line for overpriced, underproduced and limited-selection classic console re-releases isn't all that tempting to those who are able to play ''thousands'' of games from the second to sixth console generations (and also MS-DOS) on a single box.

* The Arch Linux wiki is popular with users of other Linux distributions because its coverage of the more technical topics of linux system and application configuration is so thorough.

** Not surprising, as lesbian pornography is [[GirlOnGirlIsHot popular among straight men]]. And naturally, lesbian porn aimed at men has some female watchers (some of whom are bisexual or lesbian, obviously, but also straight women).
*** One woman among the Honey Badgers said that she loved gay porn because it was the only kind of porn focusing on men's pleasure (straight porn generally is [[MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial all about the women]], where the man is, as she calls it, "a disembodied cock".)

** {{Hentai}} has a sizeable demographic of people who only seem to watch it for the SugarWiki/AwesomeArt . Back when the Electronic Hentai Organization specialized in nothing but hentai the admin noticed how a lot of artwork that is not Hentai got high ratings despite having nothing that is even the slightest bit pornographic. Eventually the admin would embrace the demographic and create a Non-H folder for artwork that people like but that simply is not Hentai.

* The {{Marvel}} ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformers Transformers Generation 1]]'' comic would occasionally get letters from parents who admitted to reading their kids' comics after dropping the young 'uns off at school. One wonders how the kids would feel if their friends happened to read that letter.

When the Periphery Demographic is in another country, then you've got GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff. For specific examples of Periphery Demographics, see EstrogenBrigade, TestosteroneBrigade, and LGBTFanbase. If a fandom forms around media that was not intended for entertainment purposes in the first place, it's FunForSome. Contrast PeripheryHatedom. Not to be confused with fans of ''Music/{{Periphery}}''.

* Even though Wikifeer.com is geared towards foot fetishists, it also gets a lot of visits from other men as well because of the many [[ShesGotLegs log shots]] and [[WalkingSwimsuitScene swimsuit pics]] in the female celebrity galleries.
