* One storyline in the manga ''[[LegalDrug Gohou Drug]]'' involves the characters infiltrating an all male boarding school, where almost all the guys are gay simply because there are no girls around. One student even explains this trope directly to the main character.

Added DiffLines:

** Early books suggest these are the only kind of situations in which homosexuality naturally occurs, reflecting [[ValuesDissonance a prevailing idea of the author's generation]], but later books include a few characters who seem to naturally swing that way, for whom the confinement is a convenience; however, all of this is deep subtext.

* In an episode of Series/TheVicarOfDibley , the slightly eccentric Bishop, who is also an old boarding school chum of Councillor Horton shows up. His first line of dialogue is casually asking Horton to remind him if they slept together.

** This is occasionally joked about in regards to the all-male, supposed-to-be-celibate Night's Watch. We don't see any instances of this actually being true with them, though.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GimmeGimmeGimme'' had an episode in which Linda was desperate to find a date so she writes a letter to a maximum security prison (the sort that violent serial killers would go) to find a male penpal. [[CampGay Tom]] is (understandably) disturbed by Linda's plan and tries to talk her out of it, but Linda believes that Tom is just jealous that he didn't think of it first, saying that just because there are many {{prison rape}}s it doesn't mean that the prisoners are gay like him. "Once they're out of prison," she says, "it's bye-bye bottom, hello breasts!"

* ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' plays around with this trope:
** Protagonist Piper Chapman is definitely bisexual, and was involved with another woman in the past, but is engaged to a man at the time she goes to prison. In prison, however, she gets involved again with her old lover (also in prison).
** Another inmate, Lorna Morello, was also engaged to a man prior to her incarceration, but got involved with fellow prisoner Nicky Nichols, but breaks up with her out of guilt at being unfaithful. It was implied, however, that Morello is kidding herself that her engagement is still on, as her fiance has not visited or otherwise contacted her since her third week in prison [[spoiler:(actually, later revealed that he wasn't her fiance but stalkee),]] and it's possible that her real reason for the break up is her issues over her sexuality; that is, that she's telling herself that she's not really gay.

* If this isn't what Music/ElvisPresley's "Jailhouse Rock" is about, then what the hell ''is'' it about?
-->Number forty-seven said to number three:
-->"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
-->I sure would be delighted with your company,
-->come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me."
** The writers (and by their account Elvis himself) knew this was a gay line and thought it would be funny to put it in [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar and see what happened]]. They said they put in lots of stuff like that, because they knew Elvis wouldn't have a problem with it.

* Parthenogenesis: essentially, the female's eggs contain both X chromosomes. There are several species of lizards that ONLY produce offspring this way (no males). In fact, one female will mount another, which increases fertility.

* Possible case with Daenerys Targaryen of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', who becomes intimate with her handmaiden Irri. She wasn't exactly short on men at the time, but rather men who she trusted.
** Cersei ends up bedding (to some degree) one of her female friends (who is clearly genuinely sexually attracted to her) mostly as an experiment, but she finds no pleasure in the act. Partly, this is because she has SingleTargetSexuality for Jaime (she may sleep with other people, but she only ever enjoyed it with Jaime,) and partly because her curiosity was less about sexual desire and more about what it would be like to "claim" someone less powerful than her the way she had been claimed by her husband during their miserable marriage.

* SouthPark fanfiction basically has an entire subgenre of the boys aged up in high school (to avoid the creepiness of slashing children), where the entire male cast is paired up like Noah's Ark. It's so prevalent that the series essentially has a "slash canon" in terms of pairings.
