* In Creator/TanyaHuff's ''Enchantment Emporium'' the Gale clan usually [[IncestIsRelative keeps things in the family]] and there are more female Gales than male so they tend, in the words of one of them, to be "enthusiastically undiscriminating".

Not to be confused with IfItsYouItsOkay. For particularly cliched situations where this may occur, see SchoolgirlLesbians, GirlsBehindBars, and HelloSailor. In a much darker context, this is often associated with PrisonRape.

* There is evidence that both Jangle Leg and Biscuit in the movie ''Film/{{Life}}'' are only together due to long prison terms and this trope. Jangle Leg is shown to be attracted to women (when they're around) and Biscuit can't bear to go home to his mom "like this", implying that he wasn't always gay (and flamboyant).

* The planet Athos in ''Literature/EthanOfAthos''. Originally founded as a [[CultColony "monastery planet"]] by a religious cult who believed that women were the cause of all male sin, it has since evolved into a society where most men pursue non-religious professions. Reproduction is accomplished via UterineReplicator technology. However, their religious culture forbids even depictions of women and censors all Galactic media. Thus most Athosian men will never even ''see'' a woman, nor have their ancestors going back generations. Homosexual relationships are therefore the norm, although some men, implied to be strongly heterosexual, remain celibate instead.

* In ''Series/SlingsAndArrows'', gay actor Patrick is cast as Romeo opposite straight actor Sarah as Juliet, and to begin with they have zero chemistry, not helped by Darren Nichols' bizarre decision to stage the play as a highly stylised chess match in which none of the characters look at each other; Sarah in particular finds the whole experience bewildering and depressing. As rehearsals go on, Patrick and Sarah start to bond out of their shared unhappiness with the production, and they start running scenes in private so that they can at least get a sense of what it would be like to do the play with feeling. Sure enough, such is the Power of Shakespeare that Patrick discovers that [[IfItsYouItsOK if it's Sarah, it's OK.]]

* T-Bag on ''Series/PrisonBreak'' was very interested in his fellow male prisoners while behind bars, but as soon as he got out he seemed far more interested in women.
** The actor has described him as being an AnythingThatMoves kinda guy.

* In ''YTheLastMan'', a lot of women are with other women as a substitute, but a lot simply go without, as many of them had before the "{{Gendercide}}".
* Writers of ''WonderWoman'' throw around hints that Themyscira has embraced this sort of mindset: some of the women are chaste, some of them are seeing [[ADateWithRosiePalms Rosie Palms]], and the rest pair up.

* TheDraka have no moral qualms with having sex with slaves, but it is very much more than a free woman's life is worth to wind up pregnant that way. Consequently, if straight Draka women fancy a bit of strange, it will have to be with a female slave; no-one thinks this at all shameful and a free woman is at liberty to have all the fun she likes with her own property. Men don't face the same problem.

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' has what are euphemistically referred to as "pillow friends", especially among initiates in the White Tower, where girls are isolated from men (and the world altogether) and would have problems anyway due to their powers and extended lifespan. Treated as a very private matter and not looked down upon, most of these relationships dissolve upon completing the long training process, anyway, though not always. See also SchoolgirlLesbians. All of the all-female organizations have some mention of this. Complicated by the fact that "pillow friends" can refer to a platonic friendship, since sharing a bed isn't always sexual--it's just as often that one of the friends has been punished and wants to cry herself to sleep on a friend's shoulder.

* In the ''[[Literature/NantucketTrilogy Against the Tide of Years]]'', Kat Hollard has a short-lived fling with a Babylonian girl, because she's horny and the other girl has a bit of a crush on her. Nothing really comes of it; Kat ends up getting married soon after.

* Subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Perfect Castaway". Peter is stranded on an island with Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland. Noting that there are no women and [[AllMenArePerverts men have needs]], he says they need to have an orgy. Cut to a shot of them piled on top of each other...and no one is horny.
