This is TruthInTelevision, with women being ''much'' more open about it. [[DoubleStandard Quite frankly, if a guy were to say something like that to another, more often than not, the response would be, "What are you, gay?"]] [[Literature/ThroughTheLookingGlass Contrariwise]], gay men are generally more likely than lesbians to joke about who they would switch teams for. When straight men do profess attraction to other men, it often takes the form of GayBravado -- the conceit being that they're not ''really'' attracted to guys, they're just [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday so straight]] they're not scared to ''pretend'' they are (or alternatively, so comfortable with their mostly-straightness that they aren't afraid to admit to occasional "lapses").

* A G-rated, non-sexual variant pops up in the ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' episode "Bob, Actually". Louise delivered a Valentine to Chloe Barbash on behalf of Regular-sized Rudy, but Chloe doesn't care and admits to only flirting with Rudy to get quiz answers. Louise is furious at Chloe for stringing Rudy along, but she can't seem to help commenting on how pretty and nice-smelling Chloe's hair is.

* Also present in ''UruseiYatsura'', most notably with Ryuunosuke, who gets hit on from both ends... the girls, who know damn well she's a girl, love her because [[{{Bifauxnen}} she cuts the figure of a bishonen man so well]], and the guys love her... well... because they're horndogs, and know that she has an impressive-sized bust when her boobs aren't tied down.

* A TruthInTelevision. According to some studies hardly anyone is ''completely'' heterosexual or ''completely'' homosexual, and so it can happen that someone who mostly prefers people of the opposite sex can have sexual fantasies about people of the same sex, and vice versa.

* Regardless of sexuality, pretty much everyone in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8165987/1/Bait-and-Switch Bait and Switch]]'' is attracted to Shinji in Yui's body. The only exceptions seem to be Gendo (who's furious that Yui didn't really come back) and Fuyutsuki (who still sees Shinji as Shinji).
