* In one episode of the Creator/{{Netflix}} original series ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'', 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.
** Should also be noted that Vause likely doesn't believe what she's saying, she's simply using Pennsatucky's deluded notions about gay people.

* ''Theatre/TheVaginaMonologues'' has rather controversial piece where a character is raped by men multiple times as a child... but becomes a lesbian because she is "healed" when seduced (while underage, making it statutory rape) by another woman. This piece is censored to remove lines like her declaring the experience to be "[[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization good rape]]" and raising her age from 13 to 16, mostly because in the view of the monologues, this experience is a ''[[WarpedAesop good thing]]''. Some performances cut this monologue entirely because for many people, it makes the rest of the play almost unwatchable.

* ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'' have this trope [[IncrediblyLamePun up the ass]]. To the point that the change in sexual preference is explained by possession due to a 'demon of defilement' because of rape that occurred during their childhood. It's not just men turning gay, but it usually is.

It is NotASubversion when a rape survivor does not become gay, nor is it automatically played straight if a gay person reveals that they were sexually assaulted/abused in the past. Abuse survivors are as likely to be any sexual orientation as anyone else. For this reason, this trope is passing into DiscreditedTrope territory, as there is no single cause of homosexuality, forced or otherwise.

According to this trope, both male and female victims exhibit the same response to rape, which is to become attracted to the same sex. Men become attracted to men, and women become repulsed by men. This trope is based on the premise that heterosexuality is the "default" state, and that changes in interest ''only'' occur as a defensive psychological response to sexual trauma. The further implication is that this is unhealthy and the resulting addiction (for men) and revulsion (for women) interferes with a "normal" sex life.

It is NotASubversion when a rape survivor does not become gay, nor is it automatically played straight if it's revealed that a gay person was sexually assaulted/abused in the past. Perhaps for this reason, this trope is passing into DiscreditedTrope territory, as there is no single cause of being gay, forced or not, and abuse survivors are as likely to be any sexual orientation as anyone else.



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 as well. Related to CureYourGays (if the character embarks on pleasant heterosexual sex and consequently has a change of heart).

* [[CreepyChild Alois]] in the second season of ''Manga/BlackButler''. In the beginning of the first episode, Alois is shown with many bruises all over his body and marks around his ankles, and he is shown laying in bed naked next to an old man who likewise unclothed. Following that we see him do things like alternate between being AxCrazy and [[StepfordSmiler cute and innocent at the drop of a hat,]] treat his female maid like complete crap, act in a flamboyant manner, wear black stockings with high-heeled boots and short-shorts, act [[HoYay very attached]] to his butler Claude and pretty much flirts with Sebastian when he first meets him by leaning into him, smelling him and proclaiming that Sebastian "smells good". In the fifth episode he cross-dresses as a maid, pretty much tries to seduce Ciel and outright tells Ciel that he "wants" him. He also confesses his love for Claude. This is only a partial example, since we don't know for certain that the rape ''caused'' his status as a DepravedHomosexual, but it's heavily implied that it lead to him becoming [[MindRape tremendously twisted,]] perhaps affecting his conceptions of sex worst of all.

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': [[spoiler: Touga]] is raped by his stepfather in the movie which makes all his relationships with both men and women fall into nightmare territory. He [[TheCasanova goes through woman like tissue paper]], [[spoiler: sleeps with Miki in a scene hinting at dubious consent in the novels]], has a close relationship with his adoptive sister Nanami, has a thing for Utena (and approaches her in the novels after his 'scene' with Miki which makes Miki worry for her), and is implied to have slept with Akio. The relationship between Nanami and Touga especially falls into NoYay, thanks to her sheer obsession with him and the way he emotionally manipulates her. It all reaches a head in episode 32, in which Touga suddenly tries to rape Nanami in Akio's car (which she fights off in horror) and gets angry because if sex isn't what she wanted, then what does she want? Actually, the sheer level of bullshit he pulls on her in that episode is nightmarish in itself. This careens straight into fridge horror territory if you buy the theory that he was molested by his step father. That Touga's idea of family love has been so completely warped makes the entire mess between the two of them chilling, to say the least.
* Anri's past as a SexSlave in ''Manga/{{Adekan}}'' is implied to have had a hand in turning him into a psychotic DepravedBisexual that is so depraved he'll even go after a male panda.

** Shiro is implied to have been a SexSlave as well and while he's primarily into women, his heart has considerably softened in regards to the kindhearted Kojiro and it's implied that he's fallen in love with him. He also has numerous intimate scenes with his sworn brother Anri.
* ''Manga/OkaneGaNai'': In an example of rape leading to romance, Ayase is raped by Kanou and is made a SexSlave. He's terrified of Kanou at first but Kanou's soft spot and love towards him makes him fall in love with Kanou as well, partially because he DesperatelyCravesAffection. As of chapter 37, it's made pretty clear that Ayase has developed into being IfItsYouItsOkay for Kanou.

* Averted in ''Literature/TheSwordOfTruth'' where Richard assumes one of the Mord-Sith became a lesbian after the "rape" section of her TrainingFromHell, to be informed that no, she was before this ordeal. One of the vanishingly rare instances of [[MartyStu Richard]] actually being wrong about something (note it happened in the first third of the series), as well as him wanting to keep her as a friend even though he wasn't sure about the morality of it. Of course, if TerryGoodkind believed this trope there wouldn't be [[AuthorAppeal any straight women left in his novels]].

* Tara from ''TrueBlood'' is dating a woman as of the fourth season. While it's explicitly stated that she's bi, there are still UnfortunateImplications that she only gave women a try because she was raped by a male vampire in season 3.
