* ''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.

** Finally, discussed by the second season's BigBad, Vee, who calls it 'gay for stay' and warns her surrogate daughter Taystee that it's [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain a stain on one's reputation]] in her mind.

* 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.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** 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.

trusted''. There's a moment when Daenerys looks at Irri in the moonlight and it seems like she might actually like her... then she realizes no, she really wants Drogo or Daario, and that she probably shouldn't treat Irri as a ReplacementGoldfish.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Joked about by Ygritte when she's a captive of Jon Snow and starts sexually teasing him. When Jon replies that the men of the Night's Watch have vowed to take no woman, she replies "Oh, so you lads just do it with each other, then?"
** During an expedition beyond the Wall, Gendry asks Tormund how he keeps warm in the frozen wasteland. Tormund remarks the secret is to keep moving ("walking's good, fighting is better, fucking is best"). Jon Snow notes that there's not a woman anywhere in sight, so Tormund just replies they'll have to "make do" while giving Gendry a leery look.

** Creator/LouisTheroux encountered this when he interviewed several {{transsexual}} inmates in his prison documentary "Behind Bars". They have to watch out that another prisoner doesn't kidnap them and keep them in their own cell for some length of time. They're just that starved of having a female presence at "home".

He also came across a few gay couples, including one man who was straight on the outside.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/IZombie'': Someone's sexuality and libido can be transferred to the zombie that eats their brains, meaning that Liv and other zombies can change sexuality based on whose brains their eat. Liv once started lust after a womanizing VictimOfTheWeek's female lover after consuming his brain and Lowell lost interest in Liv during a short period, as well as showing slight interest in Ravi after consuming the brain of a gay scientist.

* Indirectly affects ''Anime/YuGiOh''; no doubt one of the main reasons there's so much [[EveryoneIsGay Yaoi Fic]] in this fandom is the [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys dearth of female characters]] and overabundance of {{Bishonen}}.
