* ''WebVideo/JourneyQuest'' [[DiscussedTrope discusses]] this and combines it with FantasticRacism when some Orcs take advantage of their human disguises to mock every human stereotype they can think of.

While it can certainly be part of the initial attraction, this trope is unlikely to be a fundamental part of a mixed marriage in reality, since you hopefully wouldn't marry someone you don't know and love ''as a person''. However, outsiders may still [[MalignedMixedMarriage belittle the relationship]] by trying to reduce it to this trope, either by accusing the lovers of having an ethnic fetish, or thinking members of their own race aren't "good enough." Specific tropes include WhereDaWhiteWomenAt (Black men with White women), BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama (White men with Black women), MatzoFever (Gentiles for Jews), ShiksaGoddess (Jews for Gentiles), MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow, LatinLover & SpicyLatina, HotGypsyWoman, SensualSlavs, and EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench. As you can see, this is a ''very'' pervasive trope. Compare LikeGoesWithLike for characters who prefer their own race.

Like every woman he's dated in the past, they become lesbians by the end of the episode. The previous episode showed the time he accidentally ordered a Japanese mail-order ''husband'' by mistake, but the closing montage of that particular story showed that he kind of enjoyed it anyway. Apparently, Asian is more important than chick.

** The City Elf Origin's StarterVillain is a serial rapist and murderer of elven women, and abducts the CE's female wedding party (including you if female, including your fiance if male), with the intention of having his way with all of them.
** [[{{Elfeminate}} Zevran]], the player's [[TokenMinority token elven companion]], frequently invokes this. He states that the [[MurderInc Antivan Crows]] often recruit elves like him because it's easier for elven assassins to lure their targets (mostly human) into a HoneyTrap and invoke DeathBySex. He also often mentions being "elven and handsome" when bragging about his desirability as a partner. The player character can even gain ''approval'' by saying, "There's always a use or two for a handsome elf" as a flirt option.
** Interestingly, the ''PlayerCharacter'' can be played as having this for elves, if not elven yourself. Especially the Human Noble, who can engage in an OptionalSexualEncounter with a bisexual elven woman in the prologue, romance the bisexual elven companion Zevran, and/or only choose elven prostitutes.

Naturally, two of the squad being {{Otaku}} to some degree, they couldn't be happier. However, the head maid explains that this wan't due to any enlightened attitudes on the part of the former owner, he just liked the idea of being surrounded by attractive women of multiple species.

* In Creator/TomSharpe's farce of South Africa in TheApartheidEra, (''Literature/RiotousAssembly'') white policemen consider sexually assaulting black female prisoners is a rare perk in an underpaid job. Kommandant van Heerden himself is not averse - but when he feels the need, he takes it over the border to brothels in Portuguese Mozambique, which isn't breaking any South African racial separation law. Liutnant Verkramp, his resident secret policeman, duly keeps a file on his boss to bring out when the time is right.
