->''"I think Michael has nice buns. Ha ha ha ha! I like buns. I think a butt is like the most awesome thing on a guy and if he doesn't have a nice butt, I just, I don't even look twice."''

The Female Gaze is a {{Gaze}} trope about the way a work is presented as from a female perspective or reflects female attitudes, either because of the creator's gender or because it is deliberately aimed at a female audience. While it can contribute to it, Female Gaze is not restricted to looking at sexy men but is more importantly about the expectations of how the (presumptive) audience relates to the work.

Female Gaze is a DistaffCounterpart to MaleGaze. It is generally less common than its SpearCounterpart, and this is largely believed to be due to MostWritersAreMale.

May overlap with [[HoYay Homosexual]] MaleGaze. Compare EatingTheEyeCandy and LongingLook.

* The girls in the BOD Man [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbS-n_ux-bs football]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG4TAvD6Wwo soccer]] commercials. Actually, all of the BOD Man commercials fit this {{Trope}} since the female narrator always says "I want your bod!" at the end of the commercials.

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZy_4CovR04#t=16m02s this]] English Leather commercial, the woman's checking out her racquetball opponent and she's mentally undressing him, judging from her tone of voice when she says "All my men wear English Leather, or they wear nothing at all.".

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' gives us England's post-hot bath ShirtlessScene in Japan's house, which was ''notoriously'' more fanservicey in the anime than in the original webcomic.
** Also, when China crossdressed in the April's Fool Special, there was quite the bit of attention focused [[ShesGotLegs on his bare legs]]. While America wore a NakedApron, England dressed up as a nurse, Russia put on a dress... and France, as usual, [[NakedPeopleAreFunny was buttnaked.]]
** The incredibly buff Germany appears shirtless quite a few times in the anime, and often in sleeveless shirts.
* ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'': Once, as Oboro and Gennosuke walk through a very thin path in the mountains, we follow Oboro's gaze as she looks at Gennosuke's back...
* When [[Manga/{{Bastard}} Lucien]] first appears [[spoiler: in his true form as Lucifer]] -- completely naked -- pretty much the first thing he says is "What are you looking at, Miss Yoko?" The fact that Yoko is on her hands and knees in front of him doesn't help.
* Pick up a volume of ''Manga/BlackButler''. ''Any'' volume. Turn to a chapter. ''Any'' chapter. You will most likely be greeted with pans of the body of a [[NoYay prepubescent boy]], along with his {{Bishounen}} BattleButler's hands all over him.
* While ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has lots of MaleGaze (actually, only Rangiku, Orihime, and Yoruichi count), the female fans have just as much, if not more eye-candy. How many times has Ichigo gotten ClothingDamage, to start? And what about Renji, his ''very'' tattooed body, and his ''very'' sexy SlipknotPonytail? Let's not forget Byakuya wearing a tuxedo in some pictures, Ikkaku and his own share of ClothingDamage, and especially '''[[WalkingshirtlessScene Grimmjow]]'''.
** Don't forget the time Ichigo failed to land a scratch on Ulquiorra, but succeeded in [[ClothingDamage ruining his shirt.]]
** Speaking of Ulquiorra, there's quite a bit of focus on his lips.
** There's also Hisagi and Kensei, who are both not only buff and [[SleevesAreForWimps never seem to wear sleeves]], but they have ''sixty-nine'' tattoos, Hisagi's on his face and Kensei's on his abs. Sure, the numbers actually have an innocuous explanation in-universe, but it's easy to assume otherwise...
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is ''very'' good about the MaleGaze (with Kallen in particular), yeah, but it also has some fanservice for the ladies, such as Lelouch's ShowerOfAngst and Suzaku's ass. Actually when you think about it, the ''EstrogenBrigade'' is enough to cancel out the show's intended audience. Go ahead, see if you can find more than 50 straight fanfics.
* ''Manga/CryingFreeman'': Yoh Hinomura [[BattleStrip undressing]] is usually followed by a full-page splash panel displaying his body. [[FullFrontalAssault Before he kills his enemies, often while still in the nude.]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Granted, of course, this is a series that prides itself on heavily muscled men beating the snot out of each other. Still, there are far more long panning shots up spandex-clad male bodies than can possibly be justified by dramatic reasons. May explain part of the show's relatively large female following.
** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has had enough ass shots of the guys for fans to take notice. Particularly of Vegeta.
* In ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'', Saki's reaction to getting hit with a NakedFirstImpression is to stare at the man's groin for about ten seconds.
* Creator/KyotoAnimation released a thirty-second promo featuring a [[SportsStories swim team]], now known as ''Anime/{{Free}}'' Anime fans quickly took note of the fact that said promo was essentially a [[http://youtu.be/ByhP478ZPQI half-minute beefcake reel]], full of loving shots on the chiseled abs, buns, and even feet of nubile young swimmer boys, in tight swim shorts, while dripping wet and with [[BowChickaWowWow pulsing music for good measure.]] An InstantFanClub was gained from the promo alone, despite the fact that nobody knew if it was a promo for the studio or a full series (although the latter eventually came to pass, to the fangirls' delight.)
** And the main series, titled ''Anime/{{Free}}'', indeed lived up to its predecessor in being as filled with lovingly-shot images of muscular {{bishounen}} as possible while still retaining an actual plot.
* Albeit unintentionally, the ''Manga/GetterRobo G'' [[http://youtu.be/bHtIjY2hKt4 ending sequence]] lets us know that [[TheHero Ryoma]] [[ShesGotLegs has got particularly shaped legs]].
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. Almost every male character gets a ShirtlessScene at least once.
* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'': Domon Kasshu, making SuperRobot fanboys everywhere... [[StupidSexyFlanders vaguely]] uncomfortable since 1994.
** All of the Shuffles are subjected to quite a bit of female gaze when suited up. It certainly helps that they all have different body types: George is the archetypical slender and graceful {{Bishonen}}, Chibodee has a rather ample chest, Sai Saici is youthful-looking and {{Keet}}-ish, and Argo is ''very'' buff. Any wonder as to why this series is pretty popular among girls?
** As bonuses, Domon and Chibodee get several {{Shirtless Scene}}s. ''Specially'' Chibodee, being a boxer and all and having a well-toned frame. Yay.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing''. Trowa Barton. Shirtless Trowa from the Endless Waltz OVA.
** Treie Khushrenada. Bubble bath with rose petals.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has Tieria Erde's infamous ShowerOfAngst, as well as Alejandro Corner wearing only in a bath robe ''and'' Ribbons Almark in a midriff-baring top and white undies while cranking up the HoYay [[spoiler: to [[HoneyTrap worm his way up]] Alejandro's trust and affections.]]
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KVzl1G5iHc second ending animation]] featured [[TheHero Setsuna F. Seiei]] and [[TallDarkAndHandsome Allelujah Haptism]] in {{Shirtless Scene}}s, and a close-up shot of [[BigBrotherMentor Lockon Stratos']] crotch.
*** And the {{Out of Clothes Experience}}s [[spoiler: coming from the Trans-Am System]] don't spare ''anyone'' from either male or female gaze. Setsuna and Mr. Bushido aka Graham are among the "victims", and even [[GoodScarsEvilScars with all of his scars]] it's ''very'' nice to see Graham naked.
* In the BaseballEpisode of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', Tsuruya is introduced, and she promptly looks at Kyon's crotch. Lampshaded in ''WebVideo/TheAbridgingOfHaruhiSuzumiya'', obviously.
** That same episode has an [[HilariousOuttakes outtake]] from the English dub cast where ''[[CovertPervert Mikuru]]'' of all people gleefully exclaims "Ooh look, buttcrack!" when watching Kyon dive to catch a baseball.
* While ''Manga/KarakuridoujiUltimo'' is very much {{Shonen}}, you'll find that more than half of the fanbase are girls due to the [[{{ViewerGenderConfusion}} fact that almost all of the robots look like girls]], and the {{Yaoi}} undertones between Rune and Yamato's relationship.
* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'', most people are put off by Aikuro's tendencies for exhibitionism and nudity. Suyuko, [[https://41.media.tumblr.com/edff1db5f572bc99365f8f921fb8c17f/tumblr_nkioeqczPL1rj016ro1_1280.png on]] [[https://40.media.tumblr.com/8d535e4fadb43edd619103e89abcaa1c/tumblr_nkioeqczPL1rj016ro2_1280.png the]] [[https://40.media.tumblr.com/11ffcd0afaabc7d59dd17bd9f4cf1aa6/tumblr_nkioeqczPL1rj016ro4_1280.png other]] [[https://41.media.tumblr.com/7ff3558d4bcb145f44c7af954337ec8c/tumblr_nkioeqczPL1rj016ro7_1280.png hand]]...
* ''Manga/{{Magi}}'' gives us Sinbad in all his naked glory. Within his first appearance, girls' eyes might wander down
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Kouji Kabuto. In the anime he was shown half-naked more often than Sayaka. (And this is the resident MsFanservice we're talking about). And in the manga he visited a hot springs resort, and stripped himself once [[NakedPeopleAreFunny for no reason at all]]. Duke Fleed from ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' also "suffered" from it: an example was when Kouji went to Duke's room late in the night to discuss a matter was worrying him... and both of them [[ShirtlessScene were naked up waist]] during the conversation.
* One ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' two page color spread had "female gaze!" all over it. The girls are all happy and relaxed and you don't see too much of their bodies... but the boys bicker all over and they're all naked and you see almost ''everything'' of Rock Lee... Okay, there's [[TheBigGuy Chouji]] too, but he [[BigFun looks very happy]] [[BigBeautifulMan and he DOES have his fangirls too.]]
** In her début episode Karin apparently held a lengthy conversation with Sasuke's chest. That was where the camera was aimed, anyway...
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' is known for MaleGaze fanservice, and yet we have one scene with [[TheHero Simon]] kicking ass in a bath house wearing nothing but a short bath towel around the waist. The shots during the scene tended to be in worm's eye view, and the mere thing preventing anything from showing is some black [[CensorShadow shading]] under the characters' waist towels.
** Well, actually, many men are perpetually topless in the show. Kamina only has a cape sometimes, and Simon, although he wears jackets, he always keeps them open and he's shirtless underneath. Kittan wears a [[SleevesAreForWimps tank top]] in one of the Parallel Works shorts that tends to get blown around exposing his chest nonetheless, he's as good as shirtless. Also, Lordgenome, complete with [[CarpetOfVirility chest hair]].
** This troper is starting to think Gurren Lagann thinks little of clothes and eliminates it in every way way possible, regardless of the wearers' genders.
* ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'':
** [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lsnye3Sa771qf95ibo5_250.png Quite]] [[http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lsnye3Sa771qf95ibo7_250.png a]] [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lsnye3Sa771qf95ibo3_250.png lot]] of shots are focused on [[TheLancer Yousuke]]'s butt. And [[TheHero Narukami]] certainly likes to undo his shirt's top buttons.
** And after [[TheBigGuy Kanji]] shows up, he's often seen wearing a sleeveless shirt, which lets the animators focus quite a bit on his rather nice and muscular arms.
** Taken UpToEleven in the animated rendition of a certain school trip in which everyone gets drunk. He ends up totally sloshed and with his shirt open while the girls make drunken passes at him in their own ways. [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ly4jxqHoek1qh9on7.gif Niiiiiice abs, Narukami.]]
* ''Anime/PsychoPass'' give us Shinya Kogami, who is mostly seen in many many [[ShirtlessScene shirtless scenes]] that showed us his well-toned body. It can't be helped though, the fangirls immediately fainted.
* ''[[Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman Gatchaman]]'': while [[TheChick Jun]] got [[MaleGaze quite the focus]] on [[ShesgotLegs her lean legs]], nice butt and [[PantyShot white panties]], the camera wasn't exactly shy about showing the girls [[MrFanservice how]] TallDarkAndHandsome [[TheHero Ken]] and [[TheLancer Joe]] were.
** Taken UpToEleven in the OAV, where aside of Jun getting VaporWear and a nude TransformationSequence... Joe's first scene has him [[TroubledbutCute broodingly and sexily]] staring offscreen [[ShirtlessScene while wearing no shirt]] under [[HellBentForLeather his leather jacket]] ([[WalkingShirtlessScene and he doesn't wear it]] [[TransformationSequence before transforming either]]), and the very bishonen suited-up!Ken shows off a ''very'' muscled body thanks to his tight body suit. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV8XUkgMrpQ See ALL the eyecandy here, boys AND girls]]. Note that even the bad guys are now showing off muscular bare arms rather than being completely covered!
* Currently depicted above is from ''Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo''. Ironically for female viewers, it's less about turn-ons than it is about [[PlayedForLaughs cheap laughs]]. In at least one case, it prompts [[TheOneGuy the only significant resident boy]] to tell the [[LoveableSexManiac girls]] to [[MyEyesAreUpHere raise their heads]].
* The ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara 3'' manga puts a lot of emphasis on Yukimura's [[WalkingShirtlessScene muscular bare torso]] and Mitsunari's slender legs, especially during fight scenes.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Kid has a nice ass.
** From the same series we have Soul wearing [[OutOfClothesExperience nothing]] [[CensorShadow but a shadow]] and Stein training [[ShirtlessScene with no shirt on]].
* ''Anime/SpaceDandy'' has almost equal amounts of this and MaleGaze-- being a series that both rejoices and parodies skimpier animes. Notable examples include episode 6, where Dandy spends 90% of the episode in a pair of briefs, and the latter half of episode 8 where there's not one but ''two'' pan-ups of his naked behind, not to mention him running around in a towel.
* Okamoto's mech in ''Anime/StarDriver'' has a "[[{{Fanservice}} Fanservice Mode]]" that lets her see into her opponent's cockpit and through his clothing. While he's preparing to attack her. [[DistractedByTheSexy Oops]].
* ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' spoils female viewers often, with eye-candy like Barnaby's muscled body after a shower or Kotetsu as a male BandageBabe frequently figuring into the show, especially in later episodes; at times the writers also seem to throw in references for [[YaoiFangirl a certain type of fangirl]] specifically, such as the RunningGag of Barnaby catching Wild Tiger in a "bridal carry" whenever the latter finds himself thrown into the air. That's not to say that the show lacks MaleGaze, either, considering some of the focal shots on the resident MsFanservice, Blue Rose.
** ''Tiger and Bunny:'' One of the few (non-yaoi) anime to give the viewers a gratuitous {{Fanservice}} close-up shot of a ''man'''s [[http://i726.photobucket.com/albums/ww262/CapZiggy/tumblr_lndj6eZZx01qdu1k9o1_500.png naked cleavage]].
* Even though it is a {{Seinen}} series, ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' engages in plenty of equal-opportunity fanservice. Besides numerous shower scenes and WorkoutFanservice featuring the handsome men of the series, creator Ishida Sui claims that he draws characters starting with their asses. It ''shows'', most famously when Arima's BadassLongcoat somehow manages to cling to every inch of his heart-shaped rear end.
* In ''Manga/ToLoveRu Darkness'', several girls see the main protagonist, Rito, naked. Momo sice the first chapter where both are in the bathtub and Rito gets up suddenly.
* The camera in the anime adaptation of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' spends a ''lot'' of time lingering on Eren's [[{{Fanservice}} glistening]] muscles when he turns into the Rogue Titan. [[http://attackontitan.wikia.com/wiki/Eren_Yeager?file=A_mysterious_Titan_appears.png Behold!]]. In fact, the fights in the manga feature lots of female-friendly focus on the Titan shifters' bodies in general ([[http://attackontitan.wikia.com/wiki/Reiner_Braun/Image_Gallery?file=Eren_and_Reiner_rematch.jpg case in point]]); however, this sometimes drifts into FanDisservice due to the grievous injuries they suffer in their battles.
* There's quite a bit of this in ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', which focuses on male figure skating and has a CastFullOfPrettyBoys. It's especially apparent in regards to [[MrFanservice Victor Nikiforov and Christophe Giacometti]]; in the first four episodes there's a lot of attention on Victor's body when he's in the hot springs, and Chris gets a lot of shots of his ass thanks to his style of skating being highly sexual in nature.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has Ranma shirtless quite often, usually so he would then be topless after being turned into a girl. Similarly, Ryoga and Mousse lose their clothes in their animal forms, so when they turn back they're naked, athletic men.

[[folder: ComicBooks]]
* In ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey: Manhunt'', Black Canary and Huntress both identify that a masked criminal is also the ManipulativeBastard KavorkaMan who seduced them both at different times, when CCTV footage of his getaway happens to show a closeup of his butt.
* [[Franchise/GreenLantern Hal Jordan]] [[http://hoosierinanity.blogspot.com/2007/12/hal-jordans-butt-forever.html has a really nice ass]].
* Comicbook/{{Nightwing}} isn't the only male superhero to get it. But he's the one who gets it the most. That infamous Comicbook/SecretSix panel? [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deense/4713693113/ The artist even wrote "Hot" when she signed it!]]
** Nicola Scott, responsible for that picture, in general loves her male ass shots, as seen in Comicbook/{{Earth 2}}.
* Jason Todd and Roy Harper have become the victim of this multiple times in ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'' by Starfire and the artist. Jason even spends most of issue 6 in his birthday suit plus a giant leaf.
** I'm sorry, [[FlatWhat what?]]
* ComicBook/SpiderMan has certainly done enough splits and other flexibility-related maneuvers in skin-tight spandex to qualify for a spot here.
* Noh-Varr dancing around in his underpants in the first issue of the Gillen/[=McKelvie=] run of ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers''. The Noh-Varr example has gotten a lot of positive feedback from feminist groups as being a great scene that doesn't shove the fanservice in your face -- if you like guys, then it's a bonus, but if you don't, then the scene is still important to the plot and interesting to read. It's also emotionally plausible, since he's alone with a woman who he's just spent the night with. Kieron Gillen has stated that this was his intention, and that there's a real imbalance between sexy female characters and sexy male characters (also pointing out that "sexy" doesn't have to be "sexist").
* During Chelsea Cain's run on ''ComicBook/{{Mockingbird}}'', Bobbi Morse would often find herself teaming up with her ex-husband Clint or current fling, Lance Hunter, and both of them tended to be shirtless. In one issue, Lance was, in fact, shirtless in bondage gear. And then he later appeared completely naked (complete with censor bar). Cain has explained that the entire book is through the lens of Bobbi and since she is an unreliable narrator, she remembers things a bit more...female gaze-y.


[[folder: FanWorks]]
* The author of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'' sure went out of her way to describe Italy, [[{{Bishounen}} an attractive guy]], dressed as Sailor Moon.
* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'':
** When Shinji gets naked in front of her, Asuka spends a good while blushing and gazing studiously at his body and taking note of the size of his "equipment".
** [[OriginalCharacter Ching]] is very appreciative of Bir’s backside.
* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Asuka often finds herself looking Shinji over, especially his backside (and declaring him yummy).
* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': When Shinji tries new clothes Asuka spends a while thinking of how yummy he looks.
* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Although the author is male, the male characters provide plenty fanservice in this doujin (not so much as the female characters, though).
* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': In chapter 3 [[StalkerWithACrush Kurumi]] is constantly checking Shinji’s behind as he trains his aim.
-->''She handed over the two clips to a blushing Ikari Shinji. Her eyes followed his behind as he walked towards the firing point.''
* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': The female characters –Misato, Ritsuko… and above all Asuka- constantly ogle to Shinji’s muscular body.
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': Asuka's point of view often focuses on Shinji's body, specially if he is half-naked, wearing a tight suit, or sweating.
* In Page 23 of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "The Boys Are Back In Town" manga fan-version ([[http://kuraikitsune13.deviantart.com/art/The-Ultimate-Fight-RRB-Manga-Pg-23-297108395]]), Blossom is shown to be staring at a certain place after she pulls Brick's pants down in an effort to embarrass him. She's just hovering there, smiling and blushing...
* In ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'', several scenes focus on Asuka ogling to Shinji.
-->Oh come on Asuka… we both know how you kept glancing at him yesterday during training, with him in that tight fitting dance getup as he built up a sweat-
* Kanin in ''FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire'' has, on at least one occasion, checked Luso out when he was training, in just swimming trunks.
* Throughout ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'', Ebony checks out every hot guy she meets. She has a very specific fetish -- mainly, looking like [[Music/MyChemicalRomance Gerard Way]]. Lucky for her, [[TextualCelebrityResemblance every hot male looks identical to Gerard Way]], which must get very confusing. She never checks out girls, however, despite a throwaway mention of her being bisexual.
* Writers frequently have Hinata Hyuga do this with Naruto... but the kicker is that with her Byukugan (X ray vision), she can see more, and far less obviously than most.
* Given the fact that [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Queen Elsa's]] ice dress was already a good example of MaleGaze, it's not surprising that [[RuleSixtyThree fanart of her as a boy]] tend to give her male counterpart this treatment. [[http://static.tumblr.com/8f3e4643fa1cd38fcc93a277177e55ee/rpw4ylu/rqtmzde3j/tumblr_static_frozen_genderbend2icon.png The cold never bothered him anyway.]]
* The Shining Armor Arc of the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' has an example played for laughs. After Shining receives a GroinAttack from [[GeneralRipper General-Admiral Makarov]] (the BigBad of the arc) during their first fight, Minuette seems a little ''too'' eager to help the ship's doctor examine the bruising.
* In ''Fanfic/WeissReacts'', [[MrFanservice Jaune]] is a victim of this, as opposed to his CasanovaWannabe canon portrayal. The poor guy ends up having at least half the cast in his UnwantedHarem.[[/folder]]

* ''Film/BatmanForever'' and especially ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', would provide the audience with loving close-ups of the dynamic duo's chest, crotch and rear every time they suited up. Either it's an example of the Female Gaze or of the ([[IncrediblyLamePun Male Gays]]?). Considering how {{Camp}} the Batman movies had become by this point, it could be hard to tell, though considering that ''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' were directed by Creator/JoelSchumacher, it's probably [[AuthorAppeal the latter]].
** The same close-ups were provided for [[MaleGaze Batgirl]] in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' -- though her costume didn't have [[DoubleStandard rubber nipples]].
* Serves to stir up some UnresolvedSexualTension in ''Film/TheBlueLagoon'' when Richard notices Emmeline staring at him intently for reasons neither he nor she can really understand at first.
-->'''Richard''': What're you looking at?
-->'''Emmeline''': Your muscles.
* After Lola meets Sam in ''Film/ConfessionsOfATeenageDramaQueen'' he walks away, and the camera briefly focuses on his butt.
* The ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy''. Well, of course. We're talking about a muscular young dude who wears a skintight outfit and is unbelievably agile.
* The ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' films. [[WalkingShirtlessScene Jacob]]. 'Nuff said.
** The first film has the least of this ([[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Jacob wears a shirt for the whole movie!]]), which is ironic seeing how it was the only one directed by a woman.
* As if any girl can watch ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' without staring at Music/DavidBowie's... incredibly tight pants.
** In her review of the movie, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick warns her [[PeripheryDemographic teenage male audience]] that most of her jokes will be centered around lusting after "The Area".
* In the film ''{{Film/Sunshine}}'', there's a nice scene of [[Creator/CillianMurphy Capa]] getting into his space suit which is clearly {{fanservice}}.
* Shows up briefly in Creator/TylerPerry's ''Why Did I Get Married?'' After a character's husband, who pretty much defines "bastard" [[spoiler: tells her he's leaving her for her friend and walks off]] she starts over in a new town. Thankfully there is a handsome, sensitive Christian sheriff around, who also has a nice butt judging by the scene where he climbs up on a ladder and Sheila finds herself staring. We get a POV shot.
* ''Film/WhatWomenWant'' has Creator/MelGibson's character taking advantage of hearing a woman's inner monologue about repeatedly looking at his crotch to do whatever he can to make her do it again.
* Creator/ChrisEvans in the ''Film/FantasticFour'' movie, which has him naked and in an impromptu sauna after his powers burn all his clothes off.
** His film debut in ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie'' has him attempting to invoke this with Janey by wearing a [[Film/VarsityBlues a whipped-cream bikini]].
* For a franchise centered around the traditionally male medium of comic books, the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse finds a lot of opportunities to [[http://www.cinemablend.com/news/1606670/new-marvel-video-compiles-every-steamy-shirtless-scene-in-the-mcu show off]] their male leads:
** In ''Film/IronMan'', there's the extended, multiple-angle montage of a filthy, disheveled Robert Downey Jr. dressed in a thin, skimpy tank top and flexing perfectly sculpted, wiry arms while lifting and hammering pieces of metal and sweating in the extremely, ''extremely'' flattering fiery forge-light.
** Chris Hemsworth as ''Film/{{Thor}}'' was already quite easy on the eyes. Add in a ShirtlessScene and him wrestling in the mud and you can hear the girls {{Squee}}ing from miles away.
** And then we got the sequel which apparently read the demographics for the previous MCU entries, and decided to give us Tom Hiddleston half dressed, barefoot, and brooding, and a long, slow pan up Chris Hemsworth's glistening abs and pecs as he sponge bathes himself against a sunset.
** Creator/ChrisEvans again in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. It lampshades his great physique in the first scene of Cap's newly-gained muscles, where love interest Peggy looks like she's going to faint and narrowly stops herself from trying to touch his chest... [[ThrowItIn which wasn't scripted]].
** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' has a ShirtlessScene with the Winter Soldier...that quickly veers into FanDisservice territory.
*** On the more positive side, we have Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie jogging around the National Mall with extremely tight T-shirts on that quite lovingly show off their physiques.
** ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', which challenges ''Film/MagicMike''[='=]s hold on the title, "Female Gaze, The Movie." Where to start?
*** It introduces Captain America with a lingering shot of Chris Evans' ass as he pummels a punching bag (and throws in a few more ass--or full-body--shots later on when he's dressed in his tight, colorful suit whose pattern immediately draws the eye to his shoulder-to-waist ratio);
*** Devotes a noticeable chunk of screentime to several unnecessary, loving pans over Chris Hemsworth's biceps, triceps, and deltoids and centers a large number of shots on his long, luscious, disheveled golden hair;
*** Has Jeremy Renner constantly posing and aiming a bow while in a skintight, sleeveless outfit that shows off his ass and arms pretty much every time he moves;
*** And has a scene focusing on a completely naked, CarpetOfVirility-sporting Mark Ruffalo whose only concession to modesty is a conveniently-placed bit of rubble in the foreground (not to mention all the earlier scenes of him with rolled-up sleeves and an open collar)
*** And if you move from that baser titillation to the numerous tight closeups of Robert Downey Jr.'s dark, silver-streaked hair, dashing, neatly-trimmed goatee, and enormous brown anime eyes framed by lashes of extension-scale length and thickness; and a pale, piercing-eyed Tom Hiddleston in sleek black hair, wearing either an elaborate, elegant green-and-gold robe and helmet, or a ridiculously sharp suit and overcoat; and you've got one of the most eye-candy-heavy superhero movies ever made.
** Film/DoctorStrange2016 (already played by fangirl magnet Creator/BenedictCumberbatch) is shirtless for no clear reason while he shaves off his BeardOfSorrow. Later scenes involve him sparring with Mordo (played by the very handsome ChiwetelEjiofor) in sleeveless tops that do an excellent job showing off their upper arms.
* In ''Literature/ExitToEden'', Mistress Lisa (Dana Delany) is seen checking out both the men and women as they're introduced at her [[SexTourism sex fantasy resort]].
** Also, during the control scene, she glances at Citizen Elliot's (Paul Mercurio) bare butt while pinching and squeezing it and telling him that that's what she likes "to do to gorgeous butts".
* In ''Film/TheCrush'', Alicia Silverstone steals a glimpse of Cary Elwes' bare butt by peeking through the bathroom door.
* ''Kamen Rider Double Forever'' has a brief scene that includes a gratuitous close-up on Philip's lips as Maria touches them.
* The first lines in ''Film/FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh'' are:
-->'''Perry's Pizza Waitress''': "Linda, Linda, there he is. There's the guy from the stereo store. Do you think he looks like Richard Gere?"
-->'''Linda''': "Did you see his cute little butt?"
* In ''Fish Tank'' Mia's gaze, and consequently the camera, long and often lingers on Creator/MichaelFassbender's naked body. Nothing wrong with [[{{Fanservice}} that]], right? Except that she's a minor and he's [[{{Squick}} her mother's new boyfriend]].
* In ''Film/BadEducation2004'', there's a shot where the camera spends a good amount of time focused on Gael García Bernal's crotch when he's mostly naked.
* ''Film/MagicMike'' could be retitled ''Female Gaze: TheMovie'' and it would actually make ''more'' sense. Among fans, it's often called such.
* ''Film/JamesBond'':
** ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}'': There are several gratuitous shots of Creator/PierceBrosnan's Bond leisurely swimming in the pool of his hotel. It's a mix of close-ups of his face and upper chest, plus wide shots of his body which serve very little purpose other than to demonstrate just how TallDarkAndHandsome and wet he is. This particular set-up makes Bond appear much more erotic during his InterplayOfSexAndViolence fight with Xenia (which includes two sexually suggestive lines, "That depends on your definition of safe sex" and "No, no, no. No more foreplay") because he's still dripping wet and only dressed in his swimming trunks.
** The franchise has suddenly gained a lot of this since Creator/DanielCraig took over the title role. It all started with the famous tiny-trunks ShirtlessScene in ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' and continued from there, so much so that that's the picture for the film page for MrFanservice.
* Featured prominently in ''Film/LookingForAlibrandi'' when the students from the boys school arrive at the girls school and the girls lay eyes on them for the first time. There are several close-ups of the boys butts as they put their hands in their pockets, causing their blazers to ride up.
* The UsefulNotes/{{Bollywood}} movie ''Bollywood/OmShantiOm'' includes a number of tongue-in-cheek moments where the female director and choreographer makes fun of traditional Bollywood 'male oriented' sequences. For example the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lZNS5dW6Y4 Dard e Disco]], in spite of a number of half naked women, firmly focuses on male superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The costumes and the way the camera lingers on him as he jumps out of water are definitely female gaze in action.
* In ''Film/ManOfSteel'', when Superman is saving the people from the oil tanker, the camera goes down to show off Cavill's pecs.
* In ''Film/PacificRim'', Mako spends a good amount of time staring out her door as Raleigh takes his shirt off. Once Raleigh notices, she immediately shuts the door... and goes on watching through the peephole.
* WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}} certainly did this on purpose when they introduced Moto-Moto, who's a hippo just like Gloria.
* In ''Film/{{Austenland}}'', Captain East takes his shirt off at every opportunity, e.g. to wipe a female character's cheek. Exasperated, another male character asks why he can't just use a handkerchief.
* Played for laughs in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2'' with Ruffnut constantly focusing on Eret's (lovingly detailed) biceps during action scenes.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Wolverine's nudity when he wakes up in 1973 provides plenty of eye candy for anyone in the audience who might be attracted to men.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Downplayed with Professor X since he's more precisely a sensual subject rather than a sex object.[[note]]He is a mild form of {{Fanservice}} because he bares more skin here than in any of the previous movies.[[/note]] In the scene where he's on a rocky ledge facing Cairo, his body position, the camera angles and the lighting sometimes evoke the impression that he's a male fashion model posing for a magazine shoot. The focus on Xavier's physical beauty in these shots later intensifies the ''blatant'' rape subtext of his next scene because he looks like an attractive ''and'' vulnerable prey when [[spoiler:Apocalypse shoves him down on to a slab and cuffs Charles's wrists to restrain him as preparation for a violent MindRape]].
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tT0Y0WuQHh8#t=16m04s this scene]] in ''My Tutor'', Terry checks out Bobby when [[PoolScene he comes out of the pool]].
* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', the male lead is introduced, headphones on, with tight shot of some slick Music/ElvisPresley inspired hip movements. Later on there's an extended of him shirtless and displaying his ripped physique, while being sprayed in orange fluid. In-universe it's supposed to be prison disinfectant, but everyone in the audience knows it's really for fanservice.
* Somewhat like the Blue Lagoon example above, in ''Film/KickAss2'' Mindy is seen having her first experience with this while watching a BoyBand music video, then suddenly experiencing it in person (along with the ladies in the audience) when she sees Dave changing in to his costume and realizes he's developed quite a physique.
* In ''Film/IntoTheWoods'', Rapunzel's prince wears tight leather pants that border on PaintedOnPants in some scenes. The song "Agony" also involves both Princes [[ShirtlessScene ripping their shirts open.]]
* In ''Film/LookingForAlibrandi'', there is a scene where the students from the boys school arrive visit the girls school. The camera switches to Josephine's POV and the audience is treated to a lot of close-ups of the boys' backsides.
* ''Film/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' Refreshing to see in a family film. George is the one spending most of the movie running around in nothing but a loincloth while the camera lingers on his glistening muscles or his soulful eyes. Meanwhile, the heroine Ursula gets the bulk of the character development, drives the plot, and does it in loose-fitting, practical clothes.
* In ''Film/NotesOnAScandal'', as Barbara reaches out to take Sheba's hands, the camera pans past Sheba's cleavage. Later, while Sheba is napping on the couch at Barbara's apartment, the camera lingers over her shapely form.
* ''Film/{{Carol}}'': During and after her fling with the titular character (who was the ClosetKey for her), Therese becomes more aware of women gazing at her--and returns the looks. Quite bold, given the 1950s setting.
* Lacey Underall in ''{{Film/Caddyshack}}'' is shown checking out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8kC6QeQ1CU#t=43m40s Tony D'Annunzio]] in [[WalkingSwimsuitScene a speedo]] at [[PoolScene the pool]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8kC6QeQ1CU#t=52m10s Danny Noonan's butt]].
* ''Film/OtherHalves''. The filmmakers film the character of Mike the way most women in horror films are treated. The camera lingers on his body while [[EatingTheEyeCandy the women around him stare]].
* ''Where The Boys Are '84'': In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sg1cJA2zvJY#t=8m48s this scene]], Laurie Jameson notices Scott Nash's eyes and smile while Jennie Copper's focus is on his "buns".
* ''Film/TheGleanersAndI'': Concerning film theory, not men looking hot. There is the gaze of the director, a woman, and of her camera, as applied to the film, and of Varda as a 'character'. The French title of the work more easily makes this idea known.

* Non-sexual example: In Creator/JudyBlume's ''Literature/{{Superfudge}}'', when Peter is suffering a PottyEmergency because his little brother is taking his time on the toilet, the only alternative that comes to his mind is to wee on a large potted houseplant. A male author would probably have thought of him using the sink first, considering it's right there next to the toilet, but a female author (or reader) is more likely to recall male movie and TV characters whizzing on trees than to think of this option.
* Comes up in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''. "Men's Fashion Magazines" tout the codpiece, as it lets potential wives see what they're buying.
%% * ''Literature/TheTwilightSaga'' is basically popular because of this.
%% * ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' is also essentially about this.
* In the last book of the ''Literature/VenusPrime'' series, Sparta spends some time admiring Blake's nude body as he recovers from gill-implantation surgery.
* In ''Literature/SonOfTheBlackSword'', Rada to Devedas. She spends quite some time admiring and describing his physique.

[[folder:{{Live-Action TV}}]]
* ''Series/TheXFiles'' [[Recap/TheXFilesS07E17AllThings episode directed by Gillian Anderson]] starts with the MaleGaze (camera just below armpit level, directed past Scully's bosom) and turns to Female Gaze (Mulder asleep in bed).
** Though both characters are objectified in some sense, the series as a whole tends to favor a [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]], [[FanService Speedo-wearing]] Mulder over objectifying Scully (though it does happen).
* On both ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'', there is ''lots'' of this going on. Angel, in particular, seems to [[WalkingShirtlessScene like being shirtless]] for absolutely no reason at all. And then there's Spike -- who is the only one that's ever naked in sex scenes (whereas Buffy is completely clothed).
** In "Chosen" Buffy glances at Spike's butt just before she proposes putting him and Angel in room to [[GuyOnGuyIsHot wrestle in the nude]] [[YaoiFangirl while she watches]].
*** Which could well be symbolic either of the relationship and respective vulnerability status of the pair, or of the fact that a show about a vampire-slaying young woman with large amounts of character drama might just have a reasonably sized female demographic.
** There's sort of an in-universe and out-of-universe example in the Season 2 episode "Go Fish", with Xander in a speedo. While the reactions of Buffy, Willow, and Cordelia are certainly along these lines, the camera shows this in a legs-up, slow-motion shot, clearly meant as a benefit for the audience.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The entirety of the Russel T. Davies era. For example, the women in the show are consistently introduced face-first, rather than from the legs up, so the audience views them as subjects rather than objects; the Tenth Doctor is regularly lingered-over by the camera; and almost every recurring male character has had a ShirtlessScene. (Davies is also openly gay, [[AuthorAppeal that might help explain some things.]])
** Amy Pond gets in on this when she watches the Doctor change clothes. When asked if she is going to turn her back on him, she cheerfully replies "Nope!" (This also gave gleeful Creator/MattSmith fans a ShirtlessScene.)
* Honestly, in ''Series/AdamTwelve'', we've got reasonably attractive actors in tight cop uniforms. Then there are {{anvilicious}} seat-belt buckling scenes, and the camera likes to focus directly on Reed or Malloy's crotch while they perform the maneuver.
* John Crichton in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' is given a wardrobe-upgrade to leather as the series progresses, involved in a variety of fetish fuel situations, is hit on by [[EvenTheGuysWantHim a majority of the main cast]] (and raped by one female villain), and is subject to a surprising amount of topless, rear-angle and crotch-level camera shots.
* The titular ''Series/{{Galavant}}'' may qualify as this, as shots and/or scenes of him shirtless tend to display an awareness that viewers definitely really enjoy seeing him half-naked. Taken {{Up To Eleven}} during [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB13n49voyg this number]] from the season two premiere.
* Eric Northman from ''Series/TrueBlood'' at the beginning of season 3. Do I need to say anything more? That's just one glaring example: most of the major male characters are unusually handsome and muscular, and very frequently shirtless or naked and lingered over by the camera.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' becomes more and more dominated by the female gaze as the series progress. Admittedly, the entire cast was ridiculously attractive with plenty of {{fanservice}} for everybody--starting around the middle of season two--Sam and Dean spend increasingly longer crying, hugging and being tied down to things.
** A good specific example comes from "Red Sky At Morning". In it, Dean and Bela end up dressing up fancily so they can attend a ball at which a potentially haunted object is to be shown. However, unlike most shows where the camera would focus on how attractive Bela looks, instead we see her surprised expression as Dean walks down a flight of stairs in a suit, the camera lingering over him.
** Interestingly, Supernatural later subverts the traditional MaleGaze trope again in season eight by panning up on Castiel and how good he looks once he washes up after a year in purgatory, but in this case it doesn't count for the FemaleGaze trope either as viewer surrogate in this scene is [[HomoeroticSubtext Dean]].
* In ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode [[Recap/CommunityS1E14InterpretiveDance Interpretive Dance]] Troy has to call Britta out on this because she won't stop looking down when talking to him while he is wearing a leotard.
* In her ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' video profile there's a scene in a diner in which Playmate Lindsey Vuolo is shown looking at the cook's butt. In real life the butt is her favorite male body part below the neck.
* In 2004, when she was interviewed on ''[[Series/TheTonightShow The Tonight Show with Jay Leno]]'' First Lady Laura Bush said that her personal trainer has a nice butt.
* Although much of the fanservice on ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is of the male gaze type, there is quite a bit of fanservice for those who appreciate muscular bodies:
** The first episode has a scene where Robb Stark, Jon Snow, and Theon Greyjoy get shaved and are all shirtless (this was actually done because footage from the pilot was shot months apart and the three characters have facial hair in certain scenes).
*** The three were even having a personal contest in that scene to see who could look the most ripped.
** Khal Drogo and most of the Dothraki males are almost all shirtless, as well.
** The series also shows a few shirtless scenes with Renly Baratheon and Loras Tyrell, who are lovers.
** Later, Loras "befriends" a very attractive male prostitute who is a real camera-magnet.
** In-universe example: after the umpteenth time Daario attempts to seduce Dany, she decides it's time for him to put up or shut up and orders him to disrobe. Her open appreciation of his naked form (with her still clothed) is used to illustrate the power dynamic between them; she takes him as a lover, but on ''her'' terms, not his.
** Melisandre consciously invites one by remaining undressed in Queen Selyse's presence. Selyse takes a long look, apparently envious of the woman who seduced her husband. Melisandre goes on to claim flesh is just another trick of the Lord of Light.
* In the 2003 ''Series/ChildrenOfDune'' miniseries, the Adonis-like (and often shirtless) Leto Atreides II is presented in a very sensual manner by the director. There are lots of close-ups of his PrettyBoy face and certain parts of his body, and the camera sometimes "lingers" on him like a woman's (or a gay man's) eyes would when staring at someone who is extremely attractive.
* On ''Series/TheNanny'', Fran revealed that she'd had constantly been admiring Maggie's male model boyfriend Michael's butt in the underwear ad he was in on the billboard over Times Square in the "Maggie's Boyfriend" episode. Maggie then went on to say, "It looks much better without his pants on".
* In ''Series/UnnaturalHistory'', after mentioning that he goes commando, the camera is very sure to follow Henry's bum as we walks upstairs.
* During a heat wave in the summer of 1992, Washington, D.C. general news reporter Wendy Rieger was doing a VoxPox interview with a [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]] twentysomething male who was playing soccer on the National Mall. He told Rieger that the black shorts and T-shirt combo matched perfectly but it was soaked with sweat and became unwearable. She told the guy that she thought that his black shorts-and-sweaty bare chest combination was good style for him by saying "It looks like you're well matched here." When she said that, Rieger suggestively slid a finger along his one of his [[http://www.onlineslangdictionary.com/meaning-definition-of/disco-tits disco tits]].
** When she covered the [[UsefulNotes/OlympicGames 2014 Summer Olympics]] in Rio de Janeiro, Wendy Rieger did a segment on what she will remember most. Those sights are the Christ the Redeemer statue and its 220 Seleron steps, Ipanema Beach and Diego, the bodyguard, which she thought of as the prettiest sight:
-->'''Wendy Rieger:''' Diego was assigned to my party for about two hours. Just long enough to go "HOMINA, HOMINA, HOMINA!", and then "Where's Diego?' 'He's with Creator/MatthewMcConaughey.' 'Really?' 'He's with the Victoria's Secret models.' 'Really?'". Not that the other bodyguards weren't lovely.
* ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'': Apart from the occasional CleavageWindow from Morgana or Gwen, the show overwhelmingly prefers to ogle the guys, with at least one ShirtlessScene per episode. Starting with the season two opener, Arthur no longer hides behind a screen to change, Gwaine is gratuitously topless in his introductory episode, and the knights have a tendency to not wear shirts, seemingly at random. Then there's the season 5 two-part premiere, where Gwaine and Percival spend pretty much the whole time shirtless and performing manual labor.
* On ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', Olivia Benson said to Elliot Stabler "I like that shirt" while he was changing out of a ripped shirt. More likely, she liked seeing it [[ShirtlessScene off]].
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'':
** Piper and Phoebe spent quite a bit of time ogling Leo's butt as he's fixing something in the fireplace.
--->'''Phoebe:''' Quite possibly the finest glutes in the city.\\
'''Piper:''' In the state.\\
'''Phoebe:''' In all the land.
** Prue walks in on Leo in the shower, and takes a second to look at Leo and remark "nice orbs" before being driven out by Piper.
* ''Series/{{Pretty Little Liars}}'' has Spencer do a lot of this. She cat calls a male teacher riding a bike and is often seen ogling her boyfriend when he is shirtless and he is very often without a shirt as a form of fan service.
* ''Average Joe'': Melana Scanlon said "They took off their shirts and I almost passed out. Holy cow!" when the Hunks [[ShirtlessScene took their shirts off]] for the Shirts vs. Skins basketball game.
** Larissa said "Looking at these guys, I was like gosh they're gorgeous. Every single one of them takes your breath away" when the Hunks took their shirts off for the Shirts vs. Skins dodgeball game.
** Larissa also said about Jim Frassetto when they went rock climbing in Scottsdale, Arizona "Jim was getting really sweaty and I have to say [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CGgvPGzUYs#t=2m14s he looks pretty darn good without his shirt on]] going down. It was pretty sexy."
* Discussed by Dana Foster on ''Series/StepByStep''; she's noted for having quite an ass fetish and once described her ideal man's butt in loving detail.
* Pulled off beautifully in episode-- pardon, [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming Brave]] 27 of ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger''. Before going into battle, Daigo [[BattleStrip tears his shirt off]], and while he does so, the camera cuts to his bare chest several times.
* In the "Pilot" episode of ''Series/MelrosePlace'', Alison starts admiring Billy's [[ShirtlessScene bare chest]] as well as his butt after he moves in, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s-k2csGEQo#t=41m04s this scene]].
* ''Vows of Deception'': Lucinda and Mary Jo [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RhWgAFT9tE#t=26m22s are watching]] [[ShirtlessScene a barechested Nick]] hang up signs.
* ''Nine News Australia'': In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3fDS_3x8qw this segment]] about how good - looking men earn more, reporter Lizzie Pearl interviews very attractive men, compliments them and she also has the camera pointed at young, lean muscular [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless]] men with smooth, hairless chests.
* ''NHL on Sportsnet'': In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bM323z6rHQ this interview]] with former Detroit Red Wings defenceman Jiri Fischer, reporter Christine Simpson is mentally undressing him.
* In ''Series/TheWire'', the background character Winona who maintains the Homcide Unit's [[TheBigBoard Big Board]] can often be seen covertly checking out Jimmy [=McNulty's=] ass when he walks by.
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqAIsmBZbOU#t=0m28s this newscast]], a New Year's Eve reveler [[{{Mooning}} is mooning]] the reporter and based on [[ReactionShot her body language and eye contact]], apparently, she thinks that he has a nice butt.
* ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' is a prime example. The show has always had cameras lingering on its aesthetically pleasing male leads, but it really started in Season 3 when showrunner Bryan Fuller started to care less and less about expectations. Here we were treated to Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage beefed up) doing close-up sweaty yoga in short shorts. Later Hannibal himself is shown naked, tied down in a bondage-like manner.
* ''Series/CharliesAngels'': In "Toni's Boys", after Kelly, Kris and Tiffany are introduced to male Angels Bob Sorenson, Matt Parrish and Cotton Harper, Kris can be seen covertly checking out their crotches and asses. Bob notices this during the next scene, which takes place at [[ChippendalesDancers a male strip club]]. In the scene, Kris especially liked [[EatingTheEyeCandy seeing]] [[ShirtlessScene Bob with his shirt off]]. Jade Allen the strip club's owner then asks him if his [[BiggerIsBetterInBed butt and package are as good]] and Bob looks to Kris and says "Well, I haven't had any complaints.". Then when they watch [[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn Arnie, the male stripper rehearse]] Kris sees Arnie's butt and says that she thinks Arnie's butt's better shaped than Bob's when she says "Oh yes! It's much better!".
* During [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-0W8Ln-OuE this]] postgame interview on [[Creator/{{Fox}} Fox Sports]], not only are reporter Katie Witham's eyes almost exclusively on soccer player [[ShirtlessScene Nani's sweaty bare chest]], she also has the camera pointed at it.
* ''Series/{{Today}}'': At the [[UsefulNote/OlympicGames 2016 Summer Olympics]], Savanah Guthrie's, Hoda Kotb's and Jenna Bush Hager's eyes,along with the camera are on Tonga's [[ShirtlessScene half naked]] flag-bearer Pita Taufatofua and Hoda and Jenna [[AllWomenAreLustful enthusiastically apply a copious amount of oil]] on [[WalkingShirtlessScene his bare chest]] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-h8YBxsJjmc this clip]].
* Creator/FoxNews: Once on ''The Five'', Sheppard Smith cut in to cover a 20 year old Virginia man who was climbing the Trump Tower and FoxNewsLiberal Julie Roginsky gasped and then [[TakeOurWordForIt spent the rest of the show]] staring at his ass (He was only shown from behind.), and called it "Amazing!".
* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' [[http://ent.trekcore.com/gallery/albums/1x19/acquisition_072.jpg Had Some]] [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-e2fF1R8LJ50/UqPdpEqtufI/AAAAAAAADv0/vgxbLTnRE14/s1600/ENT+Trip.tiff Lovely Cinematography ]] in the episode "Acquisition"
* The Creator/{{Starz}} ''[[Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand Spartacus]]'' series was notable for the way that its camerawork drooled over naked or scantily-clad men as much as women, although it's arguable that it was intended as much for a [[LGBTFanbase gay male audience]] as for a female one.
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vuNHdsSTxE this segment]] on ''The Doctors'', women discuss what makes a good butt on a guy.

[[folder:Music & Music Videos]]
* Music/{{Gackt}}'s solo career has been one long courtship of this trope. Whether he's appearing nude in photo shoots and TV commercials, or dancing suggestively while groping his chest, abs, and crotch, or [[ShirtlessScene ripping off his shirt]] in front of cheering crowds of women [[EvenTheGuysWantHim and men]], [=Gackt=] is no stranger to the Female Gaze.
* Music/CarlyRaeJepsen's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWNaR-rxAic Call Me Maybe"]] is nothing but Female Gaze. We're talking about a video that idolizes a guy who can't even start a lawn mower, but shit damn if he doesn't something sentence a shirt off with his muscles.
* K.T. Oslin's "Younger Men" which is the [[MrsRobinson cougar's national anthem]] , has the Female Gaze in this verse:
--> "Woah, look over here\\
We got a cute little ol' runner to the right\\
[[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks Blue shorts,]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene no shirt]]\\
Whoo! You're lookin' good darling\\
That's right, stay in shape"
** She told the audience "I was out walkin' around this afternoon and I saw a cute little farmer standing there with blue jeans on and [[WalkingShirtlessScene no shirt]]! I leaned out the bus window and said 'Honey, you're lookin' good'!" when she was doing the song in concert at Farm Aid.
* During the Post Show Wrap-Up to the 1992 {{Creator/MTV}} Video Music Awards, Tabitha Soren said she thought En Vogue's [[ShirtlessScene 9 shirtless dancers]] were great to watch and that she found the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers' performance to be entertaining partly because [[WalkingShirtlessScene they weren't wearing shirts]].
* This line in "As If" by Sara Evans:
--> ''Ooh yeah\\
[[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks I love the way you wear those worn out blue jeans]]
--> Walkin' all around in the big sunshine''

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* ''The WWE''. In nearly ''all'' of its entirety.
* It's not hard to tell who Wrestling/{{CMLL}} intends its EstrogenBrigadeBait to be because even if the fans don't pop the camera will let you know it. Most obvious is Star Jr, whose entrance involves peeling off his pants to reveal [[PaintedOnPants an even tighter pair underneath]] and {{shaking|therump}} his behind. When he takes off his shirt, guess where the camera stays?[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Video Games}}]]
* A good deal of ''Franchise/MetalGear'' is geared towards the Female Gaze, given [[MrFanservice how taut and firm Snake's ass is]], even when he's an [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave old man]].
** Even ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' got into the act. The website's depiction of Snake's [[LimitBreak Final Smash]][[note]]Where he climbs into the foreground on a rope ladder and bombards the stage with a grenade launcher[[/note]] had a screenshot gratuitously filling half the screen with Snake's butt.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' allows you to have Raiden run around doing handless cartwheels naked.
** Or the option to take off Big Boss's top in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'' with his Naked Camo and turn him into a WalkingShirtlessScene.
* During the various acrobatic stunts Ezio pulls in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'', quite a few of the female [=NPCs=] will take time to compliment his, er, tight pants. [[HoYay Male NPCs as well]].
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', zooms into Luis's crotch ''immediately'' after he states that he has something for you....coincidence or subliminal messaging? You be the judge.
* Despite ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' being mostly a MaleGaze series, it occasionally will cater to its female counterparts by not just having some attractive men that include a WalkingShirtlessScene, but the [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive5 fifth installment]] adding [=DLC=] that included swimming clothes for the men and even sexy Hallowe'en costumes that [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/deadoralive/images/d/d4/DOA5U_Ein_Halloween.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20131015150749 shows off the male characters' physique more]].
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'': Probably more so than any other Dragon Age game. While the two romancable-for-men female love interests dress and carry themselves pretty conservatively (sensible armor for Cassandra and a ruffled dress for Josephine), of the four romancable-for-women male love interests one is MrFanservice (Cullen) and the other is a WalkingShirtlessScene (Iron Bull). Cutscene camera angles frequently make good use of this.
** While sex scenes with female companions (including [[GayOption Sera]]) tend to involve a bit of [[NippleAndDimed nipple and diming]] for two seconds at most, [[TalkingInBed pillow talk]] following sex with male love interests tends to involve lingering shots of the male characters' incredibly well-toned chests, abs, and legs. Cullen and Iron Bull both seem averse to laying in bed with a blanket, and [[GayOption Dorian]] gives his male Inquisitor love a nice long look at his well-toned rear-end following their love scene; a scene that also appeals to [[YaoiFangirl straight/bi female players]].
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has been known to cater to this as well as MaleGaze; while not as frequent as Miranda, Jacob gets some camera-ogling, especially on his abs.
** ''In VideoGame/MassEffect3'', if Kaidan is still alive and you've been pursuing the romance with him, [=FemShep=] (and the camera) will spend time checking out his ass while they're walking aboard the Normandy. The opening scene also has a female NPC whose eyeline suggests that she's checking out his ass as she walks by. [[http://i1192.photobucket.com/albums/aa335/VivaciousDeimos/tumblr_m0fi5zwTfN1r4nc13.gif This has not gone unnoticed.]]
* As fighting games have become more popular among female gamers, the male characters with either {{Bishonen}} looks and/or nice {{Heroic Build}}s have steadily increased in number. (And sometimes, so does the HoYay between them as well). Even males who didn't start as [[MrFanservice Misters Fanservice]] have become [[AdaptationalAttractiveness more handsome with time]], attracting [[PeripheryDemographic a rather sizable number of ladies to the fandoms]]. In the Franchise/StreetFighter saga we have [[HeroicBuild Ryu]], [[SpiritedCompetitor Ken]], [[WalkingShirtlessScene Fei Long]], [[KidAppealCharacter Yun, Yang]], [[RatedMForManly Charlie]], [[TallDarkAndHandsome Guy]], etc; in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' there's [[TheHero Kyo]], [[AntiHero Iori]], [[ChivalrousPervert Benimaru]], [[BloodKnight Shen Woo]], [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Terry]], [[{{Keet}} Kensou]], [[HeroWorshipper Shingo]], etc.; from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' there is [[KnightinShiningArmor Ky]], [[WalkingShirtlessScene Anji]], [[HotScientist Sol]], etc. All of them are handsome dudes with nice bodies, and the artwork for the games reflects that. '''A lot'''.
** Guy takes the cake, as his winning screen in both ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'' and ''Super VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' has him with his (very nice) ass bent to the camera a la [[Anime/CodeGeass Kallen Kouzuki]]. Subtle much, Capcom?
** And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GnAkMyprnM original OP video]] for ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters XIII'' features Ash walking in front of the "camera", which lingers quite a bit on his long legs and his butt. It's around 0:43 if you wonder.
** ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' has [[http://kotaku.com/street-fighter-vs-bearded-ryu-is-the-hottest-ryu-1727774068 a DLC costume for Ryu]] that has him shirtless and with a BadassBeard. The fandom took less than five minutes to dub him "Hot Ryu".
* In ''VideoGame/JakXCombatRacing'' Keira takes her time [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3rqd2m1bc1qk2gl6o1_500.png checking out Jak's ass]]. Given that the first three ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' games almost catered exclusively to the MaleGaze (mainly courtesy of Daxter) while the series has a large female fanbase it was about time.
* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' features female characters remarking on protagonist Adam Jensen's augmented appearance in suggestive ways. The DLC, ''The Missing Link,'' features some slightly gratuitous shirtless time for Jensen at the beginning where he's interrogated by a fully-clothed Keitner who is rather close to him. Additionally, [[http://cdn1-www.craveonline.com/assets/uploads/gallery/deus-ex-human-revolution-directors-cut-wii-u/deusexhumanrevolutiondirectorscut-noscale.jpg the new cover for the ''Director's Cut'']] features Jensen in a traditionally feminine pose (ass to the viewer), showing off his physique, as opposed to the more traditional action-man covers on the original releases (see [[http://i2.listal.com/image/2246870/936full-deus-ex%3A-human-revolution-%28augmented-edition%29-cover.jpg here]] and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DeusExHumanRevolution_7469.jpg here]]). These interesting choices could simply be meant to cater to Female Gaze, or perhaps [[WildMassGuessing one interpretation is]] that they're meant to evoke feelings that the protagonist, through becoming augmented, has taken a typically female-occupied position of being objectified and having his body become public domain.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. While this series is already well known for its bountiful amount of very attractive men and women, this is the first game to specifically invoke this trope with its Summer Scramble DLC. The players get to see various characters, both male and female, wearing a sexy swimsuit and showing off a different "asset". [[http://www.r4r4i-3ds.com/wp-content/plugins/rss-poster/cache/6777b_650x.jpg Chrom]] gets to show off his butt and back, while [[http://i40.tinypic.com/yhzlh.jpg Gaius]] exhibits his abs.
** Also, in the second cutscene, the camera lingers noticeably at [[TheHero Chrom's]] face.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' continues this [[BrokenBase rather fanbase-breaking]] tendence, adding ''many'' handsome men in both Nohr and Hoshido. Among the most blatant examples is the Nohrian BlackMage [[http://amagicrobot.tumblr.com/post/122458476353/odin Odin]], whose Dark Mage uniform has SensualSpandex and AbsoluteCleavage among other fetishes.
** Special mention goes to the Beach Brawl CG's of the royal princes: [[http://i.imgur.com/OXm0Tjc.png Takumi]]'s rather nice butt on prominent display as he frolics in the ocean, [[http://i.imgur.com/gu5r464.jpg Ryoma]] nearly nude underwater as he fishes with his bare hands, [[http://i.imgur.com/a962FYJ.png Xander's]] muscular form poses for everyone's benefit and [[http://i.imgur.com/mtizuGr.png Leo]], despite being hidden under a cloak, shows off quite a bit of his toned chest and legs.
** The Nohrian and Hoshidan Scramble DLC's also get into the fun by having [[http://i.imgur.com/YXMQJq5.png Xander]] dressed as a pirate, [[http://i.imgur.com/tE9ALLc.png Leo]] dressed as a vampire, [[http://i.imgur.com/s3kaC2a.png Subaki]] dressed as a Western prince, and dolling up [[http://i.imgur.com/uIkYwOO.png Dwyer]], [[http://i.imgur.com/RFgBpA2.png Shigure]] and [[DudeLooksLikeALady even]] [[http://i.imgur.com/sB1R0nN.png Forrest]] in ''yukata''.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'' has the gorgeous [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/6/62/Mysterious_Man.png "Mysterious Man"]]. [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/4/49/Mysterious_Man_Heroes_3.png This is what happens if he gets enough damage]].
* In the second ''VideoGame/BrokenSword'' game, ''Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror'', you come across a female owner of a mining company who has surrounded herself with attractive men. She also encouraged one of the hunkier guys to strut around in a thong; her idle pose fixes her gaze firmly on his butt.
* In "VideoGame/SkullGirls", if you pay attention to Beowulf's...lower body...in his normal stance, you'll notice that he has jiggle physics.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', originally marketed to boys, has been marketed increasingly strongly to teenage girls ever since the relatively low-key MultipleDemographicAppeal elements in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' took off. Currently the peak is ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', which has a stylish CastFullOfPrettyBoys jokingly compared in the marketing to a BoyBand.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/War13thDay'' has illustrations from the perspective of the woman beneath or on top of a hot {{Bishonen}}. Knowing it'll embarrass [[ProperLady Ambrosia]], Wildfire even goes so far as to describe it. In detail.
-->'''Wildfire:''' I ripped open his clothes and began covering his slim chest with kisses between nibbles. Then, I-
-->'''Ambrosia:''' L-Lady Wildfire! Please.
-->'''Wildfire:''' Want? You want to hear more? You want to hear about the contours of his muscles? The moans he breathed out?
-->'''Ambrosia:''' No, no, no!

[[folder:{{Web Comics}}]]
* [[CatGirl Kat]] from ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'' insist she isn't attracted to Art at all... [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=405 suuure]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Guineas's transformation provokes some... [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2004-06-21 reaction]] from both Ellen and a female trooper.
* ''Webcomic/WhiteNoise'' [[http://www.wncomic.com/archive_comments.php?strip_id=195 did]] [[http://www.wncomic.com/archive_comments.php?strip_id=196 this]] to Wren. The author even joked "I'm thinking he [[ShirtlessScene doesn't get to wear a shirt]] anymore". [[RuleofCool Dig that trilobite!]]
* ''Webcomic/HarkAVagrant'': "[[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=26 Goodness I have dropped the Constitution, let me get that.]]"
** Among many others there's also [[http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=295 Sexy Batman.]]
* When Nine from ''[[http://fourfears.com/ Grayscale]]'' removes his shirt and tears off a strip to be used as a tourniquet his doctor's eyes [[http://fourfears.com/comic/104-venom/ start roaming.]]
* The {{Bathtub Scene}}s from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' give you shots of the abs of Ja Wangnan, Hon Arkraptor, Nya Nia, Kang Horyang, Rapdevil and most importantly, 25th Baam.

[[folder:{{Web Original}}]]
* Creator/DougWalker is more than aware of his large female fanbase and has been invoking this frequently. We're fairly sure that giving a [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic blowjob to a joystick]] or having a [[WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses minute long series of orgasm faces]] weren't meant for his male fans. Unfortunately there's a downside to putting himself in the stereotypically girl position, as he gets a gross amount of body-shaming and death/rape threats for "being slutty".
** In general, Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses invokes this unusually often. Especially notable in that by and large it's actually more common than the MaleGaze.
** Apparently, Channel Awesome has discovered that this and [[HoYay/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses suggestions]] that the male cast are [[YaoiFangirl hot for each other]] are the keys to attracting more female viewers.
** As early as the brawl vlogs, Noah justified his constant directing the camera to Doug's butt and legs (who in turn, was crawling, bending over all the time and lifting up his jacket so we could get an even better look) as being for the ladies.
** Speaking of Noah, [=SWS2=] (with Sage, Critic and Joe) was a lot more objectifying than the first one with Chick, Goggles and Benzaie. Critic was shirtless, Sage was giving an offscreen blowjob and Spoony went on at length over how slutty his conquests were.
** Done in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''. While guys got Chick cleavage in the first part, Critic was the one to show the most skin and Wario!Jareth's crotch gets ''weaponized''.
** Continued in WebVideo/DemoReel, with a barrel-ton of HoYay, a shot of Donnie's ass in replacement for Scarlett Johannson's MaleGaze in ''Film/LostInTranslation'', Tacoma looking good in a dress, Carl's accent getting treated as sexy by cosplayers, and Quinn getting outfitted in tight shirts and wife-beaters that show off his muscles.
** Doug's reputation for enjoying this trope was exploited in WebVideo/{{Sonic}}, as his scene involves him silent except for a few pained grunts, in a soldier's uniform, manhandled, bloodied and dirty, forced on his knees and with plenty of shots on his ass.
* Played for laughs in Episode 3 of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
-->'''Yang''': "It's like a big slumber party!"
-->'''Ruby''': "I don't think Dad would approve of all the boys, though."
-->'''Yang''': "I know ''I'' do." ''*purrs*''
-->''*Shot cuts to several shirtless boys roughhousing. [[HollywoodNerd Jaune]] walks into shot in old-fashioned pyjamas and bunny slippers, notices [[MsFanservice her]] looking his way and smiles*''
-->'''Yang''': "Ewww." ''*grimaces and looks away*''
* YouTube: [[WalkingShirtlessScene Shirtless blogger]] Connor Murphy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etJNgWyjCfw goes into a clothing store]] and asks a couple of women for advice on buying a shirt, who then tell him that he doesn't need one. When he performs the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmQtSMIrHsc Fake Shirt Trick]] and we [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmQtSMIrHsc#t=1m04s find out]] that women think [[AccidentalPun nude]] is the best men's shirt color.

[[folder:{{Western Animation}}]]
* Note all of the [[ShirtlessScene shirtless scenes]] in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender.'' It begins with a hot and sweaty DuelToTheDeath in the ''third episode'' and just continues from there.
* [[http://sarajaye.superbusnet.com/Pictures/gditstanley2.PNG Henry]] in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'', though most likely it's unintentional.
* The titular character's many, many shirtless and near naked scenes in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''.
* During an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', Archer calls Lana out for staring at his ass in the crouch firing position. She tries to play it off, but the close up shot of his butt leaves little doubt to where she was looking.
* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' has a few lingering shots of Jimmy Jr.'s butt from the [=PoV=] of Tina, who has a prominent butt fetish in general.
* TOM from ''Creator/{{Toonami}}'' has damn sexy abs, pecs, and legs for a robot. Combine that with [[ArousedByTheirVoice his voice]] and you've got the main reason why [[PeripheryDemographic teenage girls are staying up on Saturday night]].
* Possible unintentional (it is aimed at younger kids, after all), but Mateo from ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'' is a slim PrettyBoy with the suspicious tendency to have his butt on camera at least once everytime he's onscreen, at least in the pilot (he gets a new, more modest outfit afterward).
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' had numerous occasions where Ulrich and Odd, who are both considered very attractive in-universe and out, ended up in [[ModestyTowel nothing but towels]] with at least one of those having them also soaking wet.
