[[caption-width-right:350:Usui and his harem of swooning fan...''boys''?]]

->''"It is nae wonder", said the king,''\\
''"That my daughter’s love ye did win;''\\
''Had I been a woman, as I am a man,''\\
''My bedfellow ye should hae been."''
-->-- "Willie O'Winsbury", ''Literature/{{Child Ballad|s}}'' #100

A male character who is so good-looking and unintentionally charming that he becomes a babe ''and'' stud magnet, (the studs being either bisexual, or straight). Some of the other characters may question his sexuality and he'll [[AmbiguouslyGay keep]] [[CampStraight them]] [[AmbiguouslyBi guessing]], which results in HoYay... unless, of course, he is the [[BoysLove love interest]].

The only thing that saves him from becoming TheCasanova or a [[TheUnwantedHarem harem manager]] is his complete obliviousness to his power to make women's knees go weak and men's eyes glittery. If he's aware of it, which is more likely if he's the main protagonist, he'll treat it as more of a [[CursedWithAwesome curse than a blessing]] and be a staunch ChasteHero or CelibateHero; or, if he's [[Franchise/MetalGear Big Boss]], he won't really care one way or the other.

Compare the ChickMagnet, which is just attracting the opposite sex. Occasional cause is DudeLooksLikeALady (if straight guys fall for him because they ''think he's a girl'') or TheDandy, though a polar opposite cause could be his sheer masculine appeal.

Has the DistaffCounterpart of EvenTheGirlsWantHer, and for intersex characters, EverybodyWantsTheHermaphrodite. The male form of HelloNurse and polar opposite of the CasanovaWannabe. If the male character is wanted only by other male characters despite there also being females present they fall into OnlyHasSameSexAdmirers. However, they can also develop into this.

Can lead to the character becoming [[MemeticMutation memetic]] for his attractiveness. And it can also lead to the admirer(s) JumpingTheGenderBarrier. Frequently overlaps with TheAce.

If his "admirers" include much younger characters as well as both sexes, he may be the series' StacysMom.

Can be used quizzically in combination with EatingTheEyeCandy and FemaleGaze if such work is [[MostWritersAreMale written]], directed or produced by a [[HaveIMentionedIAmGay gay man]] and it is presented from the perspective of a female character.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPLCsqUfuEk this Diet Pepsi commercial,]] ''[[Series/QueerEye Queer Eye for the Straight Guy]]'''s [[CampGay Carson Kressley]] joins [[EatingTheEyeCandy Cindy Crawford and all the other women]] as one of the hunk's with the Diet Pepsi's admirers.
* Speaking of soda, [[https://youtu.be/G2P14wJuHIo when Lil' Sweet delivers a can of Diet Dr. Pepper,]] everyone in the break room acknowledges his hotness. Even the one male coworker.
* Several comments on the videos for ''Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike'' indicate that he's something like this. Since he's portrayed as the ideal man, it's not surprising.
* A [[https://vimeo.com/113495071 Ford commercial]] has a handsome young stud walking to his car wearing nothing but an [[WalkingSwimsuitScene itty-bitty pair of swim trunks]]. While most of the people ogling him are women, one man is seen smiling at him and an older gentleman is seen clearly admiring the young man's...[[DoubleEntendre assets]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Check out the ''ComicBook/MarvelStarWars'' comics. In one issue, there's a species, the Zeltrons, who are attracted to Force-sensitives. So when Luke Skywalker is on Zeltros, he naturally gets a legion of fangirls. [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar And one fanboy]].
* ComicBook/{{Gambit}} is very much this. He can even charm men. For a while one of Remy's powers was hypnotic charm, which let him try swaying any sentient being of any gender to his side but that has been changed. This "power" is no longer mentioned, and it's heavily implied that he is just that charming.
* [[ComicBook/XMen Longshot]] in ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'' charms a (later proved) gay Colossus, and in ''ComicBook/XFactor'', Detective Lieutenant Weiss is clearly smitten and insists on being called by his first name...Leslie.
* [[ComicBook/{{Daken}} Akihiko/Daken]] in Marvel Comics. Again, justified due to the guy's powers: he has SmellsSexy pheromone-related ones that allow him to alter emotions and perceptions in other people, thus making females ''and'' males want him. And even more: Daken himself is a DepravedBisexual. It is notable that Daken's appeal is exclusively a function of his pheromones, rather than any kind of general attractiveness. Hulkling of the ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'', despite being gay, is entirely unaffected because he is not a human. He is also fully aware that Daken is trying to influence him with his pheromone powers.
* [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]]. Even the male ''[[EnemyMine supervillains]]'' want him. (Hell, the first Crimson Dynamo [[HeelFaceTurn defected]] and then ''[[TakingTheBullet died]]'' for him.) Here, have a (terrifying) canon example:
-->'''[[StalkerWithACrush Tiberius]] [[SmugSnake Stone]]:''' [[DidYouActuallyBelieve You think I'd]] [[VillainousBreakdown let you]] ''[[VillainousBreakdown leave]]'' [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind this place]]?! '''''[[IfICantHaveYou Leave ME]]!?'''''
** Even his armor fell in love with him.
%%* ''ComicBook/UltimateXMenScottPilgrim'': Wallace Wells.
* For obvious reasons, nearly every guy in the Marvel universe is gay for ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. Especially Franchise/SpiderMan, ComicBook/IronMan, and ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}.
** Steve sat in Deadpool's lap once.
** ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} has a complete {{fanboy}} {{Squee}} moment with [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2563277.html Thor]], remarking on how pretty [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]] looked, leading to a DidISayThatOutLoud?
* Comicbook/{{Loki}} particularly ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard who, like his mythological counterpart, is a shapeshifter. When he dies, is resurrected as a child and joins the ComicBook/YoungAvengers no one really notices but when he's magically aged up the first reaction is: 'Okay. ''Now'' he looks like trouble!' It's implied that Fandral has a thing for him and at one point when Sigurd, [[RunningGag The Ever Glorious]] tells Loki and Verity that he'll make up for his actions via dinner and possibly more, neither of them know to whom it's directed (it's hinted to be both). During Axis his Avengers callsign is 'Pretty Boy' given to him by Sabertooth of all people.
* Franchise/{{Batman}}, if ComicBook/TheJoker's FoeYay towards him is any indication. Harley and Ivy both think that the Joker [[FoeYay only has eyes for Batman]] and the Joker has often professed affection towards Batman (complete with moments of desperate attention-needing). In the macabre ''Comicbook/ArkhamAsylumASeriousHouseOnSeriousEarth'', which is a canon ''Batman'' comic, Joker slaps Batman on the butt and continually hits on him throughout the comic. The pages are lined with homoerotic content and an unnatural level of sexual tension.
** In ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' it's mentioned "Even straight dudes dig Batman. He's fair game, like ''Creator/HarrisonFord''."
** Bruce's childhood friend-turned-villain Thomas Elliot, who became Hush. He seems to obsessively stalk Bruce and even got plastic surgery to look like Bruce. Some of his lines exemplify the FoeYay even more:
---> '''Hush:''' But never fear, Bruce.
---> '''Hush:''' I won't desert you before the final curtain.
---> '''Hush:''' I'm staying here to watch as the heartbeats slow and end.
** ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' and Batman have [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/HoYay/Superman a lot of Ho Yay]] with Superman hinted at being AmbiguouslyBi partly due to his [[BridalCarry actions]] towards Batman.
* Comicbook/{{Nightwing}} is probably even a more obvious example than his father figure Franchise/{{Batman}}. Even without the most recent example--where [[Comicbook/TheAuthority Midnighter]] correctly identifies him solely [[FemaleGaze by his ass alone]]--there have been years of throwaway lines from Dick's male Teen Titans teammates, male Bat allies, and male nemeses commenting on his looks (not to mention a line of dark, broody Batman expats who have repeatedly stated their intentions to make him their "partner", whatever that entails). Out-of-universe, we have ''Batman'' writers and DC editors admitting to Dick Grayson's intolerable hotness.
* ComicBook/SpiderMan. He's a ChickMagnet and his enemy Chameleon once told him he loves him, right before jumping off a bridge. Also, Electro visits a shape-shifting prostitute in the Marvel Knights series, and it's strongly implied he wants her to transform into Spider-Man for him. Then there's the symbiote acting like a {{Yandere}} to him. Also, Norman gets subtext with Peter/Spidey and during the "Return of the Green Goblin" arc of Ultimate Spider-Man, we get to look at things through Norman's eyes during a conversation with Spider-Man. The voices in his head tell him things like "kill him" "skin him" "burn him" and "kiss him". Another issue had the titular hero go headfirst through the windshield of a car where one male police officer is commenting about Spider-Man's form-fitting costume to his male partner. After a beat panel, the first officer points out Spider-Man's toned butt. ''ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}'' also has much HoYay towards Spiderman to a one-sided degree. Also, Gabe of ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' has recurring dreams of being saved by Spider-Man. Gabe, uh, is [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2002/05/06/ a little more happy than you might expect]].
** [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/03/29/ A later comic gets even more intimate.]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* Naruto and Sasuke get this in slash fics sometimes when paired with each other or with other guys. ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7430301/2/Taste_of_Your_Lips The Taste Of Your Lips]]'' is an example of other guys wanting Sasuke and Sasuke in turn wanting Naruto.
* As only a sophomore in high school, Jean-Paul (Northstar) is this in the ''Franchise/XMen'' fanfic ''FanFic/MutatisMutandis'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2359030/Artemiss_Liege Artemis's Liege]], catching the eye of two upperclassmen and apparently initiating an affair with his combat instructor Wolverine, all seemingly straight.
* In ''[[Fanfic/StallionsOfHarmonyVerse Stallions Of Harmony]]'', Shining Armor's former roommate is asked if he is gay. The roommate's response: "I wish."
** Also, Twilight mentions that Shining always said the guys sent him fake love letters. Since Shining Armor is ObliviousToLove in this universe, those letters were probably sincere, including the ones that were ''not'' written by mares...
* ''Fanfic/WeissReacts'': [[ChickMagnet Jaune]], much to his [[OhCrap irritation]]. Sun also exudes this aura.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is a major LauncherOfAThousandShips so in slash fics featuring him he's this most of the time. Particularly in "Northort Academy Chronicles" by CrystalIceSweet on fanfiction.net. It's lampshaped in the fic with [[CrazyJealousGuy Francois]] (who's also in love with Harry) muttering jealously at David, their flight attendant's behavior around Harry "Geez, what is it with you and barely legal twinks? You're like catnip to him."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse'': As apropos of a franchise chock full of ridiculously good-looking guys, several of the MCU men qualify for this descriptor, but the most prominent example is [[Characters/MCUCaptainAmerica Captain America]], who goes through every movie appearance being ogled by high-ranking male SHIELD agents, male Apple employees, male international terrorists, etc.
** ''Film/ThorRagnarok'': Thor and Loki catch the eye of the Grandmaster, who is a DepravedBisexual.
** In ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', Thor is [[spoiler: admiringly called a "handsome, muscular man" by Drax, who is literal and honest to a degree uncomfortable for most people.]]
* ''Film/VelvetGoldmine'': In addition to his wife and devoted female assistant, Brian Slade/[[AlterEgoActing Maxwell Demon]] insinuates his way into the hearts (and in some cases beds) of his manager Cecil, fellow rocker Curt, groupie-wannabe Arthur, and briefly his stylistic progenitor Jack Fairy. He breaks them all. Creator/JonathanRhysMeyers was once named the "Hottest Straight Guy We Wish Was Gay" by ''OUT'' Magazine.
* Dorian in the 2009 version of ''Film/ThePictureOfDorianGray''. There is literally no one who can't be persuaded to screw him, regardless of gender. And age. And flight instinct. (You halfway expect James Vane to give it a go.)
* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'': EveryoneIsBi for Dr. Frank N Furter. Also Frank has made overtures towards Brad and slept with him and has great love towards Rocky.
* Creator/BradPitt as [[DesignatedHero Achilles]] in ''Film/{{Troy}}'': ''in-universe'' example. (Of course, the Greeks were known for being a ''very'' gay-friendly society--see Mythology below.)
* ''Film/Camp2003'': When Vlad enters his room to unpack, he is totally oblivious to the fact that everyone is fixated with him. "Everyone" would be four guys and a girl. After watching while Vlad unpacks his stuff, to try and determine whether he's straight or gay, the girl comes up with the following idea:
-->'''Ellen:''' Thirty foot rule?\\
'''Spitzer:''' What's that?\\
'''Ellen:''' Means Michael has to stay thirty feet away from him until we find out if he's straight or gay.
** Of course, Michael doesn't stay away and we end up with a really weird love triangle and [[LoveDodecahedron then some...]]
* Louis Renault's description of Rick Blaine in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'': "If I were a lady, and ''I'' were not around, I should be in love with Rick." Just about every male OR female with more than two minutes of screen time gets at least some HoYay, FoeYay, or plain ol' straight ShipTease with Rick.
* Didier from ''Film/SonOfRambow'' is just ''that'' hot, enough to have [[UnwantedHarem a faithful posse of boys]] as well as girls.
* Music/DavidBowie's character Jack Celliers in the film ''Film/MerryChristmasMrLawrence'' has this effect on the Japanese POW commandant Captain Yonoi, due to his evident heroic qualities and respectable integrity. The entire plot of the movie is actually driven by this instance of [[EvenTheGuysWantHim distanced man-love]].
* In the film ''Film/FightClub'', the protagonist clearly has conflicting feelings about "Blondie", the extremely attractive young Space Monkey. In one scene, [[spoiler:in his Brad Pitt persona, he kisses Blondie on the mouth]], accompanied by a voice-over line about jealousy. Later, [[spoiler:as Edward Norton]], he beats Blondie to a pulp, remarking, "I felt like destroying something beautiful."
* ''Film/BladesOfGlory'' "You mean the blonde chick's a dude? Aw man..."
* Jimmy in ''[[Film/{{Cursed 2005}} Cursed]]''. Bo the [[JerkJock wrestler]] comes out of the closet to Jimmy because he has a crush on him due to his [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent "unnatural sexual allure"]].
* Ron Burgundy in ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'' has Champ wrapped around his finger. In one scene Champ says the following to Ron:
-->'''Champ Kind:''' The bottom line is you've been spending a lot of time with this lady, Ron. You're a member of the Channel Four News Team.\\
'''Ron Burgundy:''' That's a given.\\
'''Champ Kind:''' We need you. Hell, I need you. I'm a mess without you. I miss you so damn much! I miss being with you. I miss being ''near'' you. I miss your laugh! ''[laughs playfully and pulls on Ron's sleeve]''\\
'''Champ Kind:''' I miss your scent. ''[composes himself, becomes serious]''\\
'''Champ Kind:''' I miss your musk...when this all gets sorted out, I think you and me should get an apartment together!\\
'''Brian Fantana:''' Take it easy, Champ. Why don't you sit this next one out, stop talking for a while.
** This was carried ''much'' further in the original cut of the film (and can now be seen in ''Wake Up, Ron Burgundy'')
* In-universe in ''Film/StepBrothers'' with Creator/JohnStamos for both Brennan and Dale.
* Mullet Fingers in the film version of ''Hoot''. Roy Eberhardt seems to have a borderline-homosexual fixation with Mullet Fingers, despite the story making it quite clear he is straight. [[WordOfGod Roger Ebert]] went so far as to invoke ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' when calling the film out on this.
* Jeffrey Beaumont of ''Film/BlueVelvet''. Frank Booth is a DepravedBisexual who takes the hero out, covers his mouth with lipstick and kisses him while calling him pretty (the original four-hour-long script also implied pretty heavily that he raped him). And after all that, when he's chasing him to the woman's apartment, he threatens him with rape again and is still calling him pretty.
* Creator/CillianMurphy of ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''. Example being when the director of ''Film/BatmanBegins'' tried to find excuses for him to [[TheGlassesGottaGo take off his glasses]] so there could be more screentime for his baby blues.
** From the ostensibly-straight reviewer at [[http://www.ruthlessreviews.com/1798/batman-begins/ Ruthless Reviews]]:
--->"I listed Murphy last cause I simply have to mention that this guy is too good looking. Look, Christian Bale is a handsome dude, but Murphy (who plays Scarecrow) is fucking gorgeous. I was getting lost in his dreamy eyes, man. Like Holmes, Murphy was way too young for his supposed profession (in this case a psychiatrist); unlike Holmes, he was so good looking that I bought it."
* ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle'': At least two guys show some attraction to Kumar in the first film; an old man in the hospital tries to hold his hand, and one of the medics is obviously infatuated.
* ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'' director Gil Junger, after Creator/HeathLedger finished the reading and left, declared that if he had to have sex with a man, that Ledger would be that man.
* In ''Film/AnotherCinderellaStory'', Joey Parker sets up a booth to find the masked girl he met at the dance. A few boys get in the line.
* Scott Nash in ''Where the Boys Are '84'' which is about four college coeds going to Ft. Lauderdale during spring break to [[AllWomenAreLustful sow their wild oats]] (as described in more detail by [[http://movieloversreviews.blogspot.com/2013/01/where-the-boys-are-84.html Movie Lovers Review]]) . This was film was produced by Allan Carr who was [[HaveIMentionedIAmGay openly gay]], the screenplay was written by Stu Krieger and Jeff Burkhart and directed by Hy Averback. Carr personally fleshed out the backgrounds with personally inspected buff boys. Glendon Swarthout's official website says that it almost became "[[http://www.glendonswarthout.com/films/wheretheboysarefilm.htm the first gay beach picture]]".
* The screenplay for ''Beach Babes 2: Cave Girl Island'' was written by Mark Michelini and was directed by former [[GuyOnGuyIsHot gay porn star]] David [=DeCoteau=]. The 3 male costars play primitive stud muffins who [[WalkingShirtlessScene wear only loincloths]]. One of them, Rock, is played by Stephan Galio, who is also a ''Playgirl'' centerfold. Sola (Tina Hollimon) says about Rock, "You know, for a primitive, he's got a great ass!"
* Mac in ''Film/{{Neighbors 2014}}'', upon seeing Teddy for the first time, says that Teddy is the sexiest guy he's ever seen.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':
*** Even though they've only known each other for a couple of days, the oh-so serious Erik Lehnsherr feels comfortable enough around the charming [[PrettyBoy Dr. Charles Xavier]] that he calls the telepath "adorable" when the latter tries the Cerebro machine for the first time. In the entire X-Men movie franchise, the dour Magneto never teases another male character for his cuteness, which goes to show how unique his affection for Professor X is. If you include Creator/MichaelFassbender's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umnOwvfR3d4 comments]] that Erik finds Charles to be "very endearing, and he was charmed by this man," then Lehnsherr considers Xavier to be a cutie pie inside ''and'' out.
*** In this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wly1CHI86sA deleted scene,]] Charles projects an image of Erik wearing make-up, with a ginger wig, dressed in a sparkly blue miniskirt, fishnet stockings and go-go boots. When Erik wonders why Angel is giggling, Charles' response is a cheeky, "You've never looked more beautiful, darling."
** ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'':
*** During the end credits, an animated Deadpool looks at the "Starring" list and gets a huge boner for Ajax's actor, Ed Skrein, excitedly exclaiming that "He's the hottest!"
*** In a disturbing scene, Wade Wilson is tied up while Ajax prepares to torture him. Ajax flirts with him and says he's going to silence Wade's "pretty mouth."
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', Joaquin is described multiple times as 'The Beautiful Hero' by Chakal's second-in-command.
* The titular ''Film/AustinPowers'' is already quite the ChickMagnet but also is attractive to two guys. One kisses him and the other was way too interested in watching him dance provocatively in just his underwear.
* In ''Film/ILoveYouMan'', protagonist Peter's StraightGay brother Robbie, a personal trainer who openly admits that he doesn't even bother dating gay guys anymore because [[NoBisexuals "straight" ones]] are more of a challenge. He then promptly picks one up by offering the guy a spot while he bench presses.
* ''Film/DateNight'': Phil's weird sex fantasy now involves Holbrooke after meeting him.
* A pair of lyrics from Gaston's VillainSong (sung by his biggest fanboy [=LeFou=]) in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' sound...[[AccidentalInnuendo interesting]]:
-->''For there's no man in town half as manly!''\\
''Perfect, a pure paragon!''\\
''You can ask any Tom, Dick, or Stanley,''\\
''And they'd tell you '''whose team they'd prefer to be on!'''''

[[folder:Manhwa]]
* Shi Woon of ''Manhwa/TheBreaker'' is already a ChickMagnet but also gets some male attention. Hyuk So Chun seems to be rather... fascinated with Shi Woon after their fight. The second time he sees him, we are treated the image of Hyuk gripping his chest over his heart, and a few stronger heartbeats. I present you [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/the_breaker/v06/c043/9.html this]], if there were any doubts.
-->"That boy was the first to make my heart race like that time..."
** There's also Mamungi, who has called Shi Woon cute ever since they met.
** And Chun Woo I present you with [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/the_breaker/v06/c039/16.html this page]] Where Chun Woo asks if Shi Woon is his girlfriend.
** Shi Woon's [[CurbStompBattle "fight"]] against the S.U.C. in 77 provokes [[WorthyOpponent some strange feelings]] in Yang Yong-Hyun.

[[folder:Music]]
* Both Matthew Bellamy and Dominic Howard of Music/{{Muse}}.
* Music/DavidBowie. The world is full of straight men who say "it's okay, because it's Bowie". The man had this so much he was practically a sexual orientation unto himself (gay, straight, bi, trans, [[ShapedLikeItself Bowie]]).
* A traditional English folk song (Literature/{{Child Ballad|s}} #100; it has many variations with different names, among them "John Barbour", "Tom the Barber", and "Willie O'Winsbury"), about a king's daughter who falls for a sailor and the king's disapproval, contains the following lines, where the king changes his mind:
-->''Then he called his sailors all/By one, by two, by three\\
John Barbour was the first he called/But the last came down was he.\\
When he came a dancing down,/He was clothed all in white\\
His cheeks were like the roses red/And his teeth were ivory bright.\\
He paid their wages with a smile/And to John Barbour he did say\\
If I was a woman as I am a man/My bed fellow you would be.''
* There is a song by the English band Federal Drugs Administration, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbuCIbmMnss Rampant Russell]]", where the singer complains about how unfair it is that he's the ONLY one who hasn't slept with Russell Brand. He ends the song with "And I'm not even gay!"
* Mike Patton of Music/FaithNoMore fame [[http://killthemic.blogspot.com/2008/01/am-i-only-one-who-finds-mike-patton.html inspires lust in both his female and male fans.]]
* Music/{{Queen}}'s Freddie Mercury, mainly in the '70s. But some also find his '80s appearance hot...amplified by the fact that he was bisexual.
* Peter Steele of Music/TypeONegative. Amplified by the fact that he posed naked for ''Playgirl.'' It got to the point where he wrote a Type O Negative song titled "I Like Goils" as a response to all of his male admirers.
* Music/{{Garbage}}'s song "Cherry Lips:"
--> "With your cherry lips and golden curls\\
You could make grown men gasp when you go walking past\\
And in your hot pants and high heels\\
Why they could not believe that such a body was for real\\
It seems like rainbows would appear\\
Whenever you came near the clouds would disappear\\
Because you look just like a girl\\
Your baby blues would flash and suddenly a spell was cast..."
* Subverted in Music/JayZ's "Run This Town" (Music/KanyeWest's rap):
-->"It's crazy how you can go from being Joe Blow\\
...To everybody on your dick...no homo"
* Japanese musician Music/{{Gackt}} has gone on many a TV show hosted by men, only to have them remark how beautiful they find him and how good he smells. The most extreme example was a show he did in 2009 where there were about six interviewers, all male, and every single one of them commented on his sex appeal. One went as far to say that if Gackt kissed him, he would gladly have sex with the guy.
* [[http://i755.photobucket.com/albums/xx200/BarbarellaSteele1975/images-4.jpg Syd Barrett]] back in his Music/PinkFloyd days. A much younger [[http://i755.photobucket.com/albums/xx200/BarbarellaSteele1975/6725_4dd5.jpg David Gilmour]] would also apply.
* Music/ElvisPresley. One colleague said, "I'm straight as an arrow and I got to tell you, you stop, whether you're male or female, to look at him. He was that good looking."
* Music/FranzFerdinand has "Michael".
-->[[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday This is what I am, I am a man]]\\
[[IfItsYouItsOkay So come and dance with me, Michael]]\\
So strong now, it's strong now\\
So come and dance with me, Michael
* Adam Levine. Black Shelton, his fellow coach on the ''LiveActionTv/TheVoice'' has gone as far as saying that he has a crush on Adam.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3lCzEOy5xs "Dibs"]] by Kelsea Ballerini contains the lines "I know everybody wants you" and "Make everybody jealous".

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* OlderThanFeudalism: In Myth/GreekMythology, young men are considered suitable sex objects for mature men. For instance, the Spartan prince Hyacinthos was ''so'' handsome and athletic that both the [[BlowYouAway wind god]] Zephyrus and the god Apollo (one of the biggest [[TheCasanova Casanova]]s in the Greek pantheon -- after Zeus, that is) had HUGE StupidSexyFlanders over him and fought over his attentions. With ''deadly'' consequences for the poor guy: thanks to Zephyrus, he got his skull ''opened with a flying discus'' for choosing Apollo. [[DroppedABridgeOnHim OUCH]]. Well, at least Apollo used Hyacinthos's blood to create the hyacinth flower, so...
* The Nala episode of ''Literature/TheMahabharata'' opens with a lengthy description of Nala's virtues, including the fact that he was "desired by both men and women."
* Loki, of Myth/NorseMythology, likes to crossdress and turn into females from different species now and then. He once seduced a horse to prevent it from helping a giant take over Asgard.
* The biblical Joseph. According to the commentaries (but not the actual Bible.) Everybody knows about Potiphar's wife, but did you know that one of Potiphar's motives for buying Joseph was Joseph's astounding good looks? Luckily, before anything could happen the angel Gabriel castrated Potiphar.
** Joseph's beauty is a big deal in various mystical Islamic traditions. In Sufism, Joseph is basically the epitome of male beauty.

[[folder:Porn]]
* Peter North has both male and female fans. He also stared in [[GuyOnGuyIsHot gay porno films]] as Matt Ramsey.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Print Media]]
* Any guy who's posed nude in ''Playgirl''. Even though [[AllWomenAreLustful many of its readers]] ''are'' women, former editor Michelle Zipp admitted that the magazine attracts much [[AllGaysArePromiscuous gay male readership]]. Their spokesman, Daniel Nardico said that the magazine appeals to both men and women. While its DistaffCounterpart, ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' says "Entertainment for Men" on the cover, ''Playgirl'' says "Entertainment for Everyone" on its cover.

[[folder:Stand-Up Comedy]]
* Creator/PeteHolmes has a bit about how he would gladly give Creator/RyanGosling a blowjob.
* Creator/LouisCK has said onstage that the one man he would have sex with is Creator/EwanMcGregor and once even found himself daydreaming about him. [=McGregor=] himself took note and said he didn't mind the attention.
[[/folder]]


[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The dark splatterpunk roleplaying game TabletopGame/{{KULT}} features a bunch of disadvantages and curses for {{Player Character}}s, among which is the flaw "Sexy" (with the prerequisite that the character needs to have a high Charisma score before the player can select it). Any character having this disadvantage exudes massive sexual magnetism, which transcends cultural norms, gender or sexual orientation. As the rulebook puts it, the character will have to live with the fact that anyone he or she meets will not listen to a word (s)he says but stare at his/her ass, crotch or breasts (respectively) and launch a massive seduction attempt, ''whether the character wants to have sex or not''. Of course, this being KULT, "seduction attempt" can easily mean groping or rape. In fact, it doesn't matter if the character is chaste like a saint or a shameless rake, (s)he is still fresh meat on the market, figuratively speaking.
** You don't want to know what happens when "fresh meat" is meant literally. "Cannibalism" is another flaw entirely.
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' allows the enhancement Universal to be added to various levels of Appearance making it so that no only do the guy and girl like you but ''anything sentient'' will find you attractive.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Shirou Emiya from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Issei "Blushes Like Mad Whenever Shirou So Much As Looks At Him Funny" Ryudou has a fairly obvious crush on him.
** In ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'', there's a scene where Issei and Shinji Matou pretty much squabble like children for Shirou's attention.
* It is an ironclad fact in ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'' that everyone has a thing for [[{{Bishonen}} Ruka]] [[DudeLooksLikeALady Urushibara]]. ''[[http://img834.imageshack.us/img834/8517/everyonesgayforrukako.png Everyone]]''
** In one episode Daru states about Ruka in drag "Balls or not man, I would so hit that."
** Okabe. It is hinted that Ruka does have romantic feelings for him.
* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' takes place at an all-bird boys' school. According to the drama [=CDs=] and the official manga, this does not stop Yuuya Sakazaki from receiving love letters and seeds on Legumentine's Day (the bird equivalent of Valentine's). He even comments on his popularity with the guys in a cutscene when he finds Ryouta and Sakuya talking about him; Sakuya is his ''brother''.
%%* Hajime of ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has this effect.
* Riki and Kyousuke of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters''. For example, Riki looks up to Kyousuke a huge amount, to the point of describing him mentally in almost poetic terms worthy of a lovestruck shoujo heroine - in one of the first scenes, he says he totally understands why people come from across the school to watch Kyousuke (in the anime, why girls come to watch him), and that when he reads manga he looks 'divine'. Also, Kyousuke is once shown making ambiguous sexual/romantic comments to Riki.
* Yeonho from ''VisualNovel/{{Nameless}}'' has a notable scene where admirers of his {{Moe}} are crowding around, girl and guy. Although he doesn't stay like this throughout the whole route.
* Makoto from ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' gets his ChickMagnet status ''even more'' cranked UpToEleven ([[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap and his worse traits are toned down]], thank God) in the OAV. [[spoiler:LOL, Taisuke!]]
** And Yuuki from ''Cross Days''.
* Hatate of Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara is a ChickMagnet and Megumu develops a crush on him as well.
* ''LightNovel/MyTeenRomanticComedySNAFU''
** Hachiman has Totsuka show a large amount of affection towards him.
** Totsuka is so cute that in episode 13 of the anime he incapacitates several other boys. Also, Hachiman doesn't seem to mind getting HoYay with him.
* Kousaku is a ChickMagnet and in ''VisualNovel/NoRin'' has attracted the attentions of Rose who succeeds in tricking Kousaku to play the PockyGame with him in order to kiss him.
* ''VisualNovel/KoiToSenkyoToChocolate'': Yuuki is a ChickMagnet and Oboro has a blatant crush on him.
* Keiichi of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has a few members of his group of female friends attracted to him. Also, when he demonstrated to a male baseball player his badass K persona the baseball player is shown making a face that looks similar to a g-rated orgasm while blushing and screaming "K!" while kneeling and reaching after a retreating Keiichi.
* ''VisualNovel/ShukufukuNoCampanella'': Leicester. Even Golem blushes around him.
* Hiroshi Kuzumi from ''VisualNovel/OokamiKakushi''. Just ask [[DepravedBisexual Issei]], who stalks and tries to molest Hiroshi a few times.
* ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa'': Hajime. Nagito certainly does. Some of the guys (namely Nidai and Hanamura) also have suspect endings in Island Mode.
* ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'': Both rock 'n' roll Prosecutor Klavier Gavin and Apollo Justice, seem to attract quite a bit of attention from males and females alike, particularly Klavier who Apollo even admits is "dazzling" and says he'll "wipe that smile off your pretty face, Gavin", whereas Apollo seems to attract the attention of Klavier to the point Klavier's sexual orientation could be questioned particularly in Case 2 of the game and the [[NoExportForYou Japanese Only Quiz DLC]] for Dual Destinies where Klavier admits he's never felt this way towards a man before, and the DLC Quiz has plenty of friendly jabs at both Apollo and Klavier's orientation, even moreso than Phoenix and Edgeworth. Also if you examine the detention center guard in Case 4 of Apollo Justice, Apollo notes he is winking at him.

* Tedd from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', without his OpaqueNerdGlasses, occasionally runs into this... and just thinking about it tends to weird him out.
** Noah has, apparently, "[[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-01-26 been told [he] could make straight men see rainbows]]".
* The FanWebComic ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha [[http://www.entropymax.com/ R'r]]'' took the ViewerGenderConfusion of Yuuno to its logical conclusion. While he's not very lucky with the ladies, [[http://img76.imageshack.us/img76/6200/nanoharr57trkj9.png he's incredibly popular with the guys]] even before he got smacked with a GenderBender.
* Marius from ''Webcomic/MyLifeInBlue'' is an [[{{Bishounen}} androgynously handsome]] [[{{Transgender}} trans guy]] with admirers of all sexes and sexual orientations. He tends to get annoyed when lesbians hit on him, though. Alex also has the habit of making people question their sexuality in his presence.
* [[spoiler:The human form of Artie]] from ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' achieves this status, as [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=10245 Dave is forced to admit]].
* Tip from ''Skin Horse'', by the same author, is so attractive that [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/skinhorse/series.php?view=archive&chapter=40137#157548 even male dogs want him]]. [[spoiler:When he himself is turned into a wolf, anyway]]. Not to mention [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/skinhorse/series.php?view=archive&chapter=46115 Gavotte]] a literal HiveMind by virtue of being a swarm of bees. Who STILL wants Tip.
** And now that ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'' has been defined as a sequel to ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' (to much {{Squee}} from... well, all the fans), the natural result is that Tip and Artie [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/skinhorse/series.php?view=archive&chapter=48770 meet up]].
* [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20080906.html]] One strip of ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' was basically Lothar confessing his mancrush on Ron Perlman.
* Remember that guy on ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', and all the ladies were swooning and then that guy stood up and declared "I'm homosexual now?" Yeah? Remember that? That was great.
** He's a pilot, and he has great hair. ([[spoiler:I tell a lie, it's a wig]].) His name's Hank.
* In one ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' episode, Paulo declares to a group of Mike's female admirers that Mike [[http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c11/p3.html plays for the other team.]] Cue Mike's ''male'' fansquad.
* Though most of the characters in ''Webcomic/BlurTheLines'' are already gay, one of the main character's straight friends [[http://www.blur-the-lines.com/?p=56 would go for]] Creator/BradPitt.
* ''Webcomic/HarkAVagrant'' gives us [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=120 Ooh, Mr Darcy]]. "Meanwhile in a 20 mile radius of this event: Bodices ripping, men turning gay."
%%* Just about every single male character in ''Webcomic/TheDreamer''.
* The artist of ''Webcomic/{{Niels}}'' drew [[http://nielsg.com/if-he-only-knew this strip]] specifically to rebuff accusations of the title character being this, pointing out that 300's flirting with Niels probably ''isn't'' something [[TransparentCloset a straight man would do]].
* In [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1770 this]] ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', Marten is just as enthusiastic about parts of Sven as the girls are.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' and its spinoff, ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' has Dillon as its primary candidate:
** Seeing him dressed up as ComicBook/BlackCanary or porn star Amber-Amber is often distracting for men; he can certainly attract a certain amount of passing straight male interest when he's in drag, and male readers are often prepared to agree that this is plausible.
** Impersonating Amber-Amber (Gary's favorite porn star) even got Gary to make out with him under the pretense of Dillon helping Gary learn how to do it right, albeit to no apparent lasting effect on Gary's sexuality or attitude to Dillon.
** Dillon has claimed to have "turned" several straight guys in the past with his Swirly-Go-Round kissing technique. ''However,'' after Ruby extracted some details from him, she pointed out that it was much more likely that they were bisexual or gay, but either in denial or using this claim as a way to brush Dillon off.
*** Dillon has also kissed his old crush Ray who thinks about how "hot" it was despite being straight and considers that he might be "a little bi". When Dillon reveals that he's gay and imagines Amber as Creator/ChrisHemsworth as Thor when he kisses her Ray admits "Any straight man could agree he's handsome."
*** It continues when a grown-up Julian, whom Dillon babysat when he was younger, shows up to confess that he has a crush on Dillon.
** Gary has attracted numerous girls with his good looks, geeky NiceGuy status as well as his skill with the Swirly-Go-Round oral sex technique. He's also attracted Dillon (gay) and Matt (bisexual) imagines his sexual partner with Gary's head, has thought about having sex with him, and is willing to engage in a foursome with him. He's even managed to have Yuki, who's a lesbian, [[IfItsYouItsOkay make an exception for him]]. Also, James who's straight mentioned he wouldn't mind getting oral sex from Gary and thought about him while having sex with Tracy.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', every single member of [[spoiler:Jake English]]'s circle of friends has a crush on him, including the other boy, and (sort of) his AI duplicate.
** Justified in that the other boy ''is'', in fact, gay.
** {{Deconstructed}} a little later on. Because all of his friends have a thing for him, there isn't a single person he can go to to talk about any of this (until [[spoiler:Jane accidentally and inaccurately tells him she doesn't have a thing for him]], anyway), he's constantly having to tip-toe around sensitive subjects without letting anyone else find out what anyone else feels or that he knows about it, often questions whether it's even true in the first place or he's all just egotistically imagining it, and is showing signs of wanting to get together with one of them partially because he feels guilty about rejecting everyone.
* ''Webcomic/BoyMeetsBoy'': Skids. As in, girls want him, gays want him, bisexuals want him, and his best friend who's otherwise heterosexual wants him.
* ''Webcomic/{{Noblesse}}'' features Rai, the absolutely [[{{Bishonen}} gorgeous]] badass ChickMagnet and Dude Magnet. In particular, Shinwoo seems to think he's pretty hot.
* ''Manhwa/TheBreaker'' has Shi Woon.
** Hyuk So Chun seems to be rather... fascinated with Shi Woon after their fight. The second time he sees him, we are treated the image of Hyuk gripping his chest over his heart, and a few stronger heartbeats. I present you [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/the_breaker/v06/c043/9.html this]], if there were any doubts.
-->"That boy was the first to make my heart race like that time..."
** There's also Mamungi, who has called Shi Woon cute ever since they met.
* Variant in ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'', where no less than two lesbians (admittedly, both pre-coming-out at the time) crush badly on Marshall.
* In ''WebComic/CommanderKitty'', CK's exploits have made him so famous that [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2009/01/03/good-to-be-back/ even the Cat President]] [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2009/01/11/doing-a-heck-of-a-job-butterball/ is smitten with him]]. [[spoiler: [[AllJustADream Of course, this is all just a dream]].]]
* The Elven King [[ThemeNaming Tegretol]] in ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'' seems this way with all of the Elves in his castle. It's also implied many of his admirers have [[EthicalSlut been with him]] as well.

* Daichi from ''Literature/GreekNinja''. During the final battle, Creon notes that he's good-looking after seeing him when Sasha saved him from being decapitated. Having said that though, [[AnythingThatMoves Creon had tried to make a pass on Sasha earlier...]]
* According to the fans of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2m4eEbnR5I&feature=related this video]], Completely heterosexual guys were falling in love with Kurt.
* Creator/WillSmith, according to both the WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]]. The former's video review of ''Film/IndependenceDay'' is basically one long love letter to Will Smith interspersed with commentary whenever Will is not on screen.
-->'''Nostalgia Critic:''' ''[after slapping himself]'' Boobs! You like ''boobs''!
** Creator/DougWalker himself has had guys wanting to kiss him and grope his ass. He'll very often flirt right back.
* From WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's review of ''Film/KateAndLeopold'':
-->'''Nostalgia Chick:''' Creator/HughJackman. All the women want him. And at least 25% of the men. And the other 75% at least a little.
* ''Roleplay/FurryFury'': Actually more like ONLY the guys want him. Poor Sinku.
* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', the only people who are not aroused by the [[BadassGay Custodes]] are the Emperor, Kitten and a couple of Inquisitors, regardless of their gender.
* Duke Devlin from ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''. This is what Joey Wheeler says of Duke: "What does he have that I don't got?... besides the fangirls?... and the pretty hair?... and those gorgeous green eyes?" Duke then reminds Joey about his "sweet ass", and Joey admits, "Yeah, and a sweet ass too! But other than that, he's got nothing."
-->'''Male Narrator:''' Warning: This episode contains copious amounts of Duke Devlin. Women with heart conditions are advised to not look directly at Duke Devlin. This also applies to women without heart conditions; he's very pretty. See? See how pretty he is? He's very pretty. I'd like to run my fingers through his hair, and I'm just a voice.
-->'''Yami:''' Mustn't...look...directly at his face...so beautiful! No words to describe it...they should have sent a poet!
** It was even {{Lampshaded}} by Duke himself in episode 38: "I know how she feels. Guys are proposing to me all the time!"
--->'''Tristan:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Duke, I already told you I was joking]]!
** "Who ''hasn't'' had dream sex with Kaiba?"
--->"[[MakesSenseInContext You've got good taste in this life just like you did in your last]]. Must say, he's quite a beauty. You make a cute couple."
** When Kaiba enters the classroom in the second episode of season 0, Yugi says, "He's dreamy!"
** Yami directs HoYay towards Yugi in "What Would Yugi Do" and Jack Atlas seems to bear some kind of HoYay towards Yugi. He gives us this gem, complete with an uncharacteristically soft voice: "The greatest duelist that ever lived. I love him." And then there's Kaiba's apparent obsession with Yugi. Then during episode 15 between Bakura (not Florence) and Yugi.
--> '''Téa:''' Hey, stop groping my Yugi muffin.
--> '''Bakura:''' Bugger off, you had your chance.
** Yami also openly flirts with Yusei.
** Marik and Bakura seem to have some BelligerentSexualTension of sorts going on.
* Sasuke in ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow''. Naruto has an obvious crush on him.
* ''WebVideo/DeathNoteTheAbridgedSeriesKpts4tv'' has Raye Penber who is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fu2nykadfY&list=PL66A1A5413B5E90F8&index=114&feature=plpp_video "so awesome [he] turns guys bi,"]] and L who Light has a [[{{Yandere}} crazy one-sided crush on]], and Light has his own UnwantedHarem which includes the likes of [[MemeticMolester Ryuk]], Namikawa, [[StalkingIsLove Near]], and [[FriendsWithBenefits Mikami]].
%%* ''Roleplay/MSFHighForum'': Ash. We are not allowed to say more.
* Donnie [=DuPre=] from WebVideo/DemoReel seems to be a case of ''only'' guys wanting him. His wife hates him, a blonde girl who he tries hitting on is completely uninterested, while he and Rebecca share some ShipTease she's still aiming for Tacoma, and the less said about the {{yandere}} daughter the better, but Tacoma, Carl, Uncle Yo, Creator/{{Egoraptor}} and Quinn all eventually melt under his sad PuppyDogEyes and shameless flirting.
* WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows feels this way about Music/{{Usher}}.
* Creator/GavinFree, resident CloudCuckoolander of Creator/AchievementHunter fame, to the extent that Creator/MichaelJones' wife, Lindsay, joked that while guys have to worry about their girlfriends running off with Gavin, she has to worry about ''Michael'' doing it. It's become a running joke to the point that Michael and Gavin got ''fake married'' in ''Minecraft'' and she objected only because Michael didn't bring up the idea of polygamy. A surprising number of male fans on the forums would hit that if presented with the opportunity, and he once caught the attention of an older male chef during a television shoot that he was a crew member on. One story told on the Rooster Teeth podcast was that an extremely drunk Burnie Burns hallucinated him in an empty chair and started kissing the empty space, much to the amusement of Burnie's fianceé.
* In the WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh review of ''Film/TheDevils'', even the lesbian WebVideo/DiamandaHagan swooned at the sight of Oliver Reed in that movie. Oancitizen is terrified by that.
-->'''Diamanda:''' ''[when asked how she feels about penises]'' Disgusting! ''[Oancitizen shows her a picture of Oliver Reed]'' How can you stand having one of those attached to your... ''[gasps and faints in delight]''
-->'''Minion:''' Mistress, are you okay?
-->'''Diamanda:''' OLIVER REED!
-->'''Oancitizen:''' ''[stares at the picture in horror]'' I must only use this power for good.
** Another victim, WebVideo/JesuOtaku, later came out as a transgender man, so now we really ''can'' say 'Even The Guys Want Oliver Reed'.
* ''WebVideo/TheJokerBlogs''
** As in other versions the Joker makes some suggestive comments suggesting flirting to Batman.
** Tommy Elliot, [[BiTheWay seems to favor the guys]], and is shown as getting many to bed with him in an episode merely by using a flirtatious look.
* [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-science-sexy-5-tips-to-make-yourself-more-attractive/ One Cracked column]] about scientifically proven ways for men to become more sexually appealing talks about the phenomenon of women liking men who have dogs as pets (the cuter the better), mentioning Bradley Cooper in the process. Since no paraphrase can do this justice, this troper is just going to quote how he starts the second paragraph of this section:
--> '''Columnist:''' Science and religion tell us Bradley Cooper is a handsome man and even a [[HaveIMentionedThatIAmHeterosexualToday straight online comedy writer]] [[HoYay might want to hold him ever so close because he looks like he wears cologne that smells like chopped wood and would be warm and comforting like grandma's chicken noodle soup poured into a bowl shaped like a man with the most charming and rugged smile you ever swooned over. But if you gave Bradley Cooper an adorable wiener dog]], well, [[ItsOkayIfItsYou now you just have to give up being straight and bed him this instant in an urgent yet gentle and fulfilling way]]. I mean, I think that's how it works.
* WebVideo/AndreTheBlackNerd shows this rather blatantly toward Captain America in his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDbi5x0gSNY review]] for ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''
* In ''Literature/AWorldLessVisible'', Gabriel regularly gets stared at by both genders.
--> '''Laura''' : I think the amount of leering going on during his shifts at the dunk tank just proves that Gabriel here makes even straight men question their sexuality. Right?
--> '''Michaels:''' NO!
--> '''Stephan:''' Little bit. ''Various side glances.'' What? He’s pretty.

* Alcibiades of Athens (450BCE - 404BCE)was a Statesman, Orator and General.His beauty was so renowned that it afforded him many admirers and lovers among men and women.
* Creator/JamesMcAvoy's PrettyBoy looks have been noticed by some men:
** A male journalist from [[http://www.craveonline.ca/film/reviews/697385-filth-review-hot-scuzz CraveOnline.ca]] (who is presumably straight) gushes over the actor's attractiveness:
--->"When James [=McAvoy=] stares at himself naked in the mirror (and I think most of us would if we looked like James [=McAvoy=]), I have a sneaking suspicion that he scowls. He's such a damned pretty human being, but if you look at his films, he only really seems to get off on playing total bastards. The endangered subconscious of Simon from ''Trance''. The easily corrupted Dr. Garrigan from ''The Last King of Scotland''. Even Professor Charles Xavier seems kind of like a dickbag when James [=McAvoy=] gets a hold of him. [=McAvoy's=] boyish good looks and playful sleaziness make these scoundrels much more charismatic than they by all rights deserve, and his performance in ''Filth'' may be his assholish pièce de résistance."
** Creator/BenedictCumberbatch thinks that James is [[http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/celebrity-news/545067/sherlock-star-benedict-cumberbatch-james-mcavoy-is-gorgeous-but-i-m-not-very-confident-about-my-looks gorgeous.]]
--->"I have wanted to play roles that have gone to much better-looking people than me and you think: 'Oh, well, that's the pin-up guy's part...' for an actor like my friend James [=McAvoy=], who's gorgeous on screen."
** Creator/DanielRadcliffe may have a bit of a [[http://hub.aa.com/en/aw/daniel-radcliffe-how-to-succeed-in-business-without-really-trying-new-york-city?zonemode=page3 man crush]] on [=McAvoy=]:
--->"I don't view my face as particularly interesting to watch, whereas some actors you can't take your eyes off, like James [=McAvoy=]. I think I could watch him read the phone book."
** [[http://messedup4good.tumblr.com/post/108205515243/jon-s-baird-on-james-mcavoys-eyes-i-love After complimenting James' "incredible blues"]] (referring to the actor's expressive eyes), Jon S. Baird then made a LoveConfession.
--->'''Baird:''' I love you, James.\\
'''James [=McAvoy=]:''' I think I'm going to get lucky tonight.
** After the first two official behind-the-scenes images of ''Film/VictorFrankenstein'' were released, [[http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/33pdfu/first_official_look_at_james_mcavoy_daniel/ several heterosexual guys on Reddit were willing to admit that they find [=McAvoy=] attractive.]]
--->"[=McAvoy=] is lookin' Franken-fine."\\
"Please be a guy, so I'm not the only one that thinks this, too. Something about that guy. Handsome as all fuck. Yes, I'm jealous." \\
"Yup same here - Have man crush on him."\\
"My exact thoughts."\\
"I'm a straight (as straight as the Kinsey scale allows, anyway) dude, [=McAvoy=] is a damn fine looking dude. No shame in admitting that."\\
"He makes me question my sexuality"
** Fred Savage [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKpP2WKMGbc can't hide his admiration]] with comments like, "''Film/TheLastKingOfScotland'' is when I just kind of fell in love you" and "[[ArousedByTheirVoice I could listen you talk about anything]] [...] It's true, it's true! Describe something." James then replies that this is the first time a man has told him he likes listening to the sound of his voice.
* Sir Creator/MichaelRedgrave. There is an anecdote that playwright Creator/NoelCoward once told Redgrave's wife that he found Redgrave "so irresistibly charming." Redgrave's wife later commented, "I couldn't help but agree."
* Almost every journalist (and a lot of them are straight men) who has interviewed Creator/PierceBrosnan has acknowledged that he's incredibly handsome.
* Apparently, Creator/KevinBacon. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwBbMXYDsXw Seriously]]. Read the comments, especially toward the back. Eventually, we get one of the most fav'd comments: "I'm gay for Kevin Bacon. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Oh wait, I'm a girl]]."
* Zeddie Watkins Little, better known as [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ridiculously-photogenic-guy-zeddie-little "Ridiculously Photogenic Guy"]], is jokingly described this way.
* "[[ChickMagnet Benedict]] can't be here, sorry ladies... and guys."--Creator/JonnyLeeMiller accepting the Olivier Award he shares with Creator/BenedictCumberbatch for ''Theatre/{{Frankenstein|2011}}''.
%%* There are no straight men, only men who have not yet met Creator/JohnBarrowman.
* Creator/MikeMyers, speaking at the AFI Lifetime Achievement tribute to Creator/SeanConnery:
-->"Every woman wanted him and every man wanted to be with him. And there are those men who both wanted him ''and'' wanted to be with him. I'll admit, I have a man-crush."
* "Creator/NeilPatrickHarris is so manly, only another man could possibly satisfy him."
** There are blooper reels of Neil Patrick Harris and other male cast members on the set of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' doing rather homoerotic things spontaneously, up to and including [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svvYjyhIjv8#t=121 sensually kissing on the lips]]... and they are typically instigated by ''the other men''.
* Creator/JensenAckles is admitted to be this by even his co-stars. As Matt Cohen put it:
-->"He's like Prince. You look him [[WhatBeautifulEyes in the eye]], and you're definitely gay for a couple of seconds."
%%* Creator/RichardArmitage. It doesn't matter what role he's in, or how much of a tosser he's being, everyone wants Creator/RichardArmitage.
* Prince Harry seems to fit this role, [[http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-may-14-2013/prince-harry-visits-america if John McCain's comment]] (seen at 1:10) is any indication.
* Creator/GeorgeClooney, as alluded to in [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/sources-george-clooney-looking-good,2346/ this Onion article]].
* In her column, Juliette Frette once wrote "many people enjoy seeing Creator/RyanReynolds shirtless--namely his female (and male) fans".
* The majority of respondents of a poll taken by Manhunt Daily, which is a website geared towards [[StupidSexyFlanders gay and bisexual men]], say that Ryan Phillippe is the male celebrity with the best butt.
* From the Celebrity Nude Database: A lot of [[http://cndb.com/rob-lowe-c25496 these reviews]] of Rob Lowe's nude scenes are written by guys.
* Any of the men mentioned in Creator/RoveMcManus' standard interview question "Who would you turn gay for?" Rove's own answer seems to be Creator/HughJackman, as per 1:53 of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mM4tqudxus this clip]]
* Creator/ChrisPine [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3zCJAq9WaM has admitted]] to having a man crush on his Star Trek co-star Creator/KarlUrban.
%%* Creator/NathanFillion is this. To everyone.
* On his blog, Oscar Reymundo [[http://confessionsofaboytoy.com/2014/01/05/photos-25-sexiest-male-athletes-in-the-world showcases]] the 25 sexiest male athletes and they all appear [[ShirtlessScene with their shirts off]].
* Creator/JaredPadalecki has said of co-star Creator/MishaCollins, "With those big blue eyes, he can't play a demon. They're like, 'awww...he's too pretty'."
* Kacey boy on radio station WMMR "Preston and Steve" said he'd be willing to have sex with Creator/BradleyCooper.
** A Cracked contributor once outright stated that he would also be willing to have sex with Bradley Cooper, [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday all while insisting that he's straight.[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-zcfN1RMDU&t=494s]]
* Creator/EddieRedmayne is a handsome man. But when he finally got into costume to play [[Film/TheDanishGirl Lili]], even his co-stars had to take a step back and just look at him in awe.
* According to Lord Chesterfield, John Churchill was irresistible to both sexes in his youth.
* After John Boyega's was asked what it was like to work with Oscar Isaac [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-zcfN1RMDU&t=494s in this interview]], he was described to be very [[https://shawetcanada.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/oscarisaacnyt.jpg?quality=80&strip=all&w=720&h=480&crop=1 dreamy, handsome and beautiful]], to witch Boyega replies "Gosh, man." Then Boyega admits "honestly, its hard looking away from his face, cause good lord is he handsome."
* JosephGordonLevitt has this reputation among gay men. Being something of a (former) live-action {{Bishonen}} who's graduated to roles in indie films and science fiction as an adult probably helps.
