* Pussy Galore in the novel ''Literature/{{Goldfinger}}'' became a lsebian after she was molested by her uncle as a child. She "changes back" when Literature/JamesBond's appearance seduces her. In an interview, when discussing inspirations for playing her character, the actress who played Pussy Galore said something along the lines of "I knew she was a lesbian, so I tried to play somebody who had been abused as a child."

An exception is fanfiction. Many fanfics ''love'' this trope, using it [[SturgeonsLaw to an absurd degree]]. Hentai stories involving some form of rape of a target whose sexuality is [[IncompatibleOrientation not in preference of the rapist's gender]] are often guilty of this this as well. Related to CureYourGays (if the character embarks on pleasant heterosexual sex and consequently has a change of heart).

* In ''Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream'', Benny was gay, before meeting AM. However, it should be noted that AM is a psychotic almost physical god, who tortured him for a thousand years, made him from beautiful to looking like a monkey, and exaggerated his [[MurderArsonandJaywalking sexual]] [[BiggerisBetterinBed organs]].

* This is assumed (by the other characters) to be the case with Beethoven in ''DogSeesGod''. Even after [[spoiler:he enters a relationship with CB]] it's unclear.

* It was implied that this might be the case for Striker in ''Comicbook/AvengersAcademy'', who was molested by his manager as a young boy. However, his classmate [[PowerPack Julie Power]] shoots down this notion, and tells a crying Striker that his abuser does not hold that sort of power over him.

* In the ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' series by PiersAnthony, a female Adept[[note]]Brown, if you must know[[/note]] is lesbian because of rape in her childhood. Note that this was Anthony ''trying to be nice'' about lesbians, after people misinterpreted the [[DoesNotLikeMen man-hating]] Red Adept as lesbian earlier and wrote him angry letters. He was trying, but still missed the mark.

* In one episode of the Netflix original series ''Orange is the New Black'', Vause threatens to rape Pennsatucky, and implies that [[HeteronormativeCrusader Pennsatucky]] will enjoy it so much that she will become gay. This is an unusual example in that it is a case where rape by another woman is implied to turn a woman gay, although it should be noted that this does not actually happen; Vause only threatens it.

* The VillainProtagonist of Creator/LRonHubbard's ''MissionEarth'' series gets tortured by a pair of lesbians hoping to use this trope to turn him gay, as outlined in the strategy of "[[AuthorTract Psychiatric Birth Control]]." The next book he gets them back by raping them, and the experience not only cures them of their psychologist indoctrination, but leads them to not only beg him to stay and have sex with them every night, but actually pay him to do so. Then the book after that, they start rounding up their other lesbian friends and bringing them over for him to have sex with, in one case forcing a woman to submit.

* In the novel ''Literature/{{Hannibal}}'', Margot Verger becomes a lesbian after her horrible childhood of being [[BrotherSisterIncest raped by her brother, Mason]]. It's briefly implied that she may actually be bisexual when there seems to be mutual attraction between her and Barney when they're in the showers together, but it never goes any further.
