* Several ''Series/TheBennyHillShow'' skits, like the double cross-dressing spies skit.



* Several ''Series/TheBennyHillShow'' skits, like the double cross-dressing spies skit.



* One ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode finds Quark strangely attracted to his waiter (who turns out to be a female disguised as a male).
* In one episode of ''NorthernExposure'', Chris the DJ takes a sabbatical at a monastery and finds himself overwhelmed with lust for one of the other monks, in spite of "him" always wearing "his" hood up in a largely shapeless robe and having taken a vow of silence. Near the end the monk breaks her vow of silence to help sooth Chris's inner confusion. (In spite of being pretty relaxed in every other way he has apparently always been all about women prior to this.)
* Inverted in an episode of ''Series/{{Reno 911}}''. Lieutenant Jim Dangle, who is gay, finds himself having an inexplicable attraction to the female homeland Security agent Suzy Kim. At the end of the episode we discover Suzy Kim [[spoiler:is a male in drag, and is not a Homeland Security agent, but a con artist.]]
** This revelation also prompts a discussion by the force (brought up by Garcia) [[spoiler:whether or not jacking off thinking about a guy who looked like a girl makes you gay.]] Jones insists that it does, of course, even if most of the men on the force liked Kim.
* Plot of the Korean drama ''TheFirstShopOfCoffeePrince'', with the added twist that the Polly Oliver of the story gets mistaken as a man by the (heterosexual) male lead, and hired to [[TheBeard pretend to be his gay lover]] so that his mother will stop trying to fix him up with women. Oh, and then she starts working at the coffee shop he owns, which features [[{{Bishonen}} attractive male waiters]] as a selling point.



* In ''Series/WillAndGrace'', Jack (who's gay) finds himself attracted to a woman at a party. He starts doubting his sexuality until it's revealed that the "woman" was actually a [[WholesomeCrossdresser man all along]].
* In ''Series/YoungAmericans'', Hamilton, who's straight, is a little confused and bewildered by his attraction to his schoolmate, Jake, who is really a girl in disguise. Then again, Jake ''is'' played by Kate Moennig (aka Shane on ''Series/TheLWord''), a real life {{bifauxnen}} who is known for [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer inducing such feelings in straight women.]]
* In the short ''Film/MrBNatural'', shown on an episode of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', the titular character (a man played by a woman, a la Mary Martin) has this effect on Joel:
-->'''Joel''': Mr. B, you're ''hot!''
* In the kdrama ''Series/YouAreBeautiful'', Jeremy is shown to fall in love with Go Minam, who is actually a girl, Go Minyu, who is taking the place of her brother while he is overseas. As he believes he has fallen in love with a man, something very taboo at the time, he freaks out, providing for a very relieved reaction when he finds out she's a girl.

* Despite the appearances, it happens only once in ''Manga/Classi9''. Both Tchaikovsky and Salieri like Rentarou, but Tchaikovsky doesn't care about her gender much and is only interested in [[ItMakesSenseInContext her weakness]], whereas Salieri really is puzzled by the effect Ren's smile has on his heart and tries to fight them at first.

* In ''The Thurb Revolution'' by Alexei Panshin, hero Anthony Villiers' old friend Fred Fritz confesses to Tony that he's become oddly attracted to young David Clodfelter. Villiers, more perceptive, or at least more consciously perceptive, realizes that David is not only a girl, but Gillian U, the girl Fred's father (the Emperor) has been trying to fix him up with. A snatch of conversation in the next book indicates the engagement has been made formal.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' episode "Forbidden Fruit" has a gender inverted example. Duckman and Bernice hire a new babysitter for Charles, Mambo and Ajax, named Regine Poulet. After she accuses Duckman of sexual harassment, he's run out of town, leaving Regine and Bernice to start their own tirade of StrawFeminist PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad. Bernice finds herself becoming more and more attracted to Regine over the course of the episode, and is relieved to find out that she was actually King Chicken, Duckman's arch-nemesis, in disguise.

* Poor Jamie Fletcher, the teenage ship's boy in L.A. Meyer's ''BloodyJack'' series, beats himself up mentally for quite a while thinking that he is inappropriately attracted to fellow shipmate Jack (actually SweetPollyOliver Jacky). Luckily, she likes him too and eventually reveals herself to him.
