-->-- ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suL5p3x7IfE Little Big Mom"]]

[[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday You are completely heterosexual]], [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment you are very much attracted to individuals of the opposite sex and you certainly aren't gay]]. But, you know, there are some examples of the same sex whom you can't help but admire. You can appreciate good looks and a sexy body regardless of gender. If taken far enough you just might say something that [[MistakenForGay sounds wrong even in context]]. Indignation usually follows.

This often doesn't mean anything significant regarding your overall sexual orientation, though often you are just as caught off guard as the people around you. When applied to specific individuals who tend to provoke this response to people in general, see EvenTheGuysWantHim and EvenTheGirlsWantHer.

If done enough times as a RunningGag, writers actually [[AmbiguouslyGay planning to out a character]] later can use this as {{foreshadowing}}. In some of these cases, this may be caused by a ClosetKey. If it's taken seriously but isn't a set up for [[TheReveal a reveal]] about the character's sexuality, it can sometimes lead to IfItsYouItsOkay.

Nearly all {{Wholesome Crossdresser}}s, and many {{Bifauxnen}} are subject to this gag at least once. (The "It's a Trap" internet meme is often used to refer to characters who cause this trope in audience members.) Occasionally, the "victim" is given peace of mind by discovering their totally platonic (really!) [[SweetOnPollyOliver crush]] is really SweetPollyOliver.

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

TropeNamer comes from one of Homer Simpson's quotes from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. While he's attempting to recall his skiing lessons, his mind shifts to a skin-tight ski suit-wearing Ned Flanders moments prior, who waggles his buttocks while exclaiming the suit makes it feel like he's "wearing nothing at all". Cue {{Squick}} from Homer and the trope invoked.

The term "GAR" (always in capitals) is {{memetic| mutation}}ally used to describe a character who induces this through '''sheer {{Badass}}ery and HotBlooded-[[BuffySpeak ness]]'''. This term originated on [[ImageBoards 4chan's /a/]], originally describing the character Archer from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime & Manga]]
* In episode 12 of ''SeitokaiNoIchizon'' Ken is afflicted with a case of StupidSexyFlanders when Nakameguro shows up.
* The eponymous character of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' is known to have androgynous features and has induced many a StupidSexyFlanders moment among guys every time he is forced to crossdress.
* Several instances in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' even after Haruka Tenoh is revealed to be a woman.
** Haruka herself certainly doesn't mind the attention, even going so far as to playfully flirt with some of the Inner Senshi (particularly Usagi).
* In the harem comedy ''Manga/AiKora'', HandsomeLech protagonist Maeda is freaked out to learn that NewTransferStudent Haiji Kikuno is a bisexual LoveFreak who has the hots for him because of his "pure heart". Maeda is further freaked out when he learns Haiji has his ideal butt.
* The ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' short "Viral's Sweet Dream" is pretty much all about Viral's issues with this.
-->'''Viral:''' Why was I dreaming of ''Kamina''!? Well, I guess I'm allowed to have sweet dr-NO, NO! NOT SWEET! ''NOT SWEET!''
** Most [[EvenTheGuysWantHim male fans]] [[{{Badass}} understand]] [[CrazyAwesome this]] [[IfItsYouItsOkay perfectly]].
* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', most of Ranma's classmates find themselves attracted to his [[GenderBender female form]], even though they ''know'' that he's really a guy. The reason for this is most likely that he's susceptible to extreme ClothingDamage, especially in his female form, and that his curse actually gives him the real body of a girl.
** To quote one chapter of the manga, "We don't care! She's still hot!" ... much to the disgust of the female classmates.
* Also present in ''UruseiYatsura'', most notably with Ryuunosuke, who gets hit on from both ends... the girls, who know damn well she's a girl, love her because [[{{Bifauxnen}} she cuts the figure of a bishonen man so well]], and the guys love her... well... because they're horndogs, and know that she has an impressive-sized bust when her boobs aren't tied down.
* Domon Kasshu, from ''GGundam''. He and his fellow Gundam Fighters get a seriously {{Fanservice}}y TransformationSequence (StockFootage, even) and LatexSpaceSuit duds much like the Trope Namer's ski outfit. The relief of heterosexual male fans was palpable when [[AffirmativeActionGirl a female Gundam Fighter]] was introduced with her own TransformationSequence.
** [[http://chibs.deviantart.com/art/Stupid-Sexy-Chibodee-63715435 Nothing at all! NOTHING AT ALL!!]]
* Lockon Stratos of ''{{Gundam 00}}'' had the FanNickname "Stupid Sexy Lockon". Take that as you will.
** Also, Tieria Erde, who sparked ViewerGenderConfusion even after he started talking and asserted his [[RealMenWearPink masculinity]].
** [[spoiler:Episode 8 of season 2 DID NOT help matters any, as Tieria [[WholesomeCrossdresser donned a wig, a dress and BREASTS]].]] Forget what the fangirls say, [[spoiler:Tieria is a man and he's ours.]]
*** WordOfGod is that Tieria was originally going to be a woman, but something changed in the creative process.
* Basically the entire premise of ''MariaHolic'', in which the lesbian protagonist transfers to a girl's school so she can be around a lot of pretty girls - and is very very annoyed when the prettiest girl turns out to be a cruel, rude, crossdressing boy... and she still gets nosebleeds when he flaunts his femininity
* ''Manga/GirlsBravo'': In season 2 episode 6,the main character Yukinari is forced to dress up as a girl, in order to host a gaming tournament. His disguise is so convincing that even the local pervert Fukuyama mistakes him for a pretty girl. This makes for one of the most humorous scenes in anime when Fukuyama finds out his true gender. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXyK4lSo18w Watch the moment of truth here.]]
* ''NoBra'' is a delightful little manga about two ''male'' childhood friends who move away from each other and don't see one another again until they're all grown up... The protagonist stays largely the same as he was before, just taller, but [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/NoBra0302C.jpg his friend Yuki...]]
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s Hatake Kakashi is widely suggested to be handsome underneath his mask. It's enough to make a ramen waitress, and her father, blush.
** In episode 53 the normally straight Jiraiya tells Naruto after seeing him in just his boxers (japanese version) "You're quite sexy when you're naked." and (english version) "You know, you have quite a tight sexy little body."
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Has quite a list of these characters. Ichigo, Byakuya and Ukitake just to name a few.
* ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'': Upon meeting Natsu Tanimoto, Kenichi spends as much time worrying that he'll steal Miu as he does just being utterly ''floored'' by his good looks.
-->'''Kenichi:''' [[SomethingAboutARose Oh my god, I can see roses.]]
* In ''Manga/SkipBeat'', Kyouko inflicts this on one of her female co-stars while acting as [[MagnificentBastard Natsu]], prompting this exchange between said [[ThoseTwoGuys co-star and her friend]] after the co-star gazes off into the distance with LoveBubbles.
-->"What is this, this ticklish and itchy feeling?"
-->"Love?"
-->"AAAAAARGH!"
* Hideyoshi Kinoshita from ''LightNovel/BakaToTestToShoukanjuu'' who looks like a girl, [[JapanesePronouns speaks like an old samurai]] and (tries to) act like a guy, all but insists he's male but has about as much success in convincing people as [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Bridget]] or [[SamuraiWarriors Ranmaru]]. This leads to quite a few awkward moments, especially when he gets chosen to be the official "round girl" for the summoning war in episode two of the anime. One joke is that "Hideyoshi" has become its own gender designation within the story as both men and women object to him changing in the men's room, and Hideyoshi himself refuses to enter the women's room.
* Konori Mii from ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' provoked this from everyone in episode 13 while in her swimsuit, including Kongo Mitsuko's ''snake''. No small feat, considering the other girls were already strutting some nice guns in their swimsuits, and let's not get into Kuroko's BarelyThereSwimwear...
* ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'': At one point, PsychoLesbian Suruga admits she'd totally date Koyomi if he didn't already have Senjogahara.
** It may or may not make it an even stronger example since she was in love with Senjogahara herself.
* In one episode of ''NatsumeYuujinchou'', Natsume gets possessed by a female youkai who occasionally surfaced through his voice and mannerism. Kitamoto and Tanuma can't help but find the result uncomfortably attractive. There's also the time where, without any sort of supernatural aid, he managed to fluster a lesbian.
-->'''Hinoe:'''...''Dammit'', you look so much like [[IdenticalGrandson Reiko]]! ''Why do you have to be a '''man'''!?''
* ''OnePiece'': Nami calls Kalifa a sexy secretary who she'd be "happy to have" as her own secretary before remembering she's not a DirtyOldMan. The yuri fandom rejoiced.
** Then there's Ivankov. DEAR SWEET MOTHER OF GOD. See [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100404200535/onepiece/images/c/c1/Eve_Vankov.PNG here]]. What's wrong with that, you may ask? Well, that's only Iva-sama when he's in a "feminine mood." When he's a guy, he's... well, the one in the middle. [[http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/File:Iva_comparison.png Note that he is wearing the same clothes]].
*** And in the anime, when Ivankov arrives to Kamabakka Kingdom with her female appearance, Sanji immediately mistakes her for a woman and falls for her. HilarityEnsues when Ivankov switches to her true form.
* ''{{Happiness}}'': The entire male population of the school is conflicted between the knowledge that Jun is a guy, and the fact that he makes a very convincing girl.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'': The live action movie gives us the Spaceland bus driver describing Light as "quite a good looking guy-not that I'm into guys..."
* In ''{{Trigun}}'', one of the Roderick Thieves, Nagi, gets a bit slap-happy when he sees one of the slaves they've just captured eyeing Legato for too long. The Vice-Chief is pretty sure he knows what about Legato is making Nagi so antsy.
-->'''Vice-Chief:''' I get it. He's almost ''horrifyingly'' handsome, but you're too cruel.
* ''{{Otomen}}'': Ooji Suzaku's sheer sex appeal makes even ''Kasuga'' flustered. His nickname is "Prince Pheromone."
* The eponymous character from ''KunisakiIzumoNoJijou'' looks so much like a girl that he tends to attract unwanted attention from men, much to his chagrin.
* Ranmarou from ''Manga/IkokuIrokoiRomantan''. Gondou, who is straight and in love with Kaouru, is tempted by him.
* Played for laughs in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. TeamDad Reiner heavily hints that he's gay, but that doesn't stop him from occasionally expressing the desire to marry [[DudeMagnet Christa]] whenever she's being particularly [[CutenessOverload cute]].
** [[spoiler: Takes a rather dark turn when Reiner is revealed to be the Armored Titan that busted the hole in Wall Maria five years ago and sent humanity retreating back.]]
* Kiba in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' at one point [[AttractiveBentGender gender bended himself temporarily]] and dressed as a nurse to take care of a sick Issei. Even though Issei knew he is a dude and his best friend in the club, he can't help but be attracted to him. Made worse by the fact that Kiba as a girl ''is Issei's type of woman''.
* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'''s Victor Talbot considers being [[RavenHairIvorySkin really,]] [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench really]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim ridiculously]] [[{{Bishonen}} good looking]] to be yet another reason why Huey Laforet is a terrible person.
* Griffith of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has [[EvenTheGuysWantHim been known to have this effect]] on people, most notably Sir Laban.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* ''Comicbook/{{Blacksad}}'', which it probably owes its [[LGBTFanbase gay fanbase]] to.
* {{ComicBook/Daken}} was this to Venom and Bullseye in ''DarkAvengers''. Add to that the fact that Daken is [[AnythingThatMoves Bi]] and also emits pheromones which can make him influence people of the opposite gender. Making his StupidSexyFlanders a ''superpower''.
* {{Deadpool}}, as it turns out, has a giant squealing fanboy crush on [[TheMightyThor Thor]].
-->'''Thor:''' You will be handed over to the authorities. Imprisonment shall be yours. The fate of a thief.
-->'''Deadpool:''' I REALLY FIND YOU VERY ATTRACTIVE!
-->'''Thor:''' ...
-->'''Deadpool:''' DidIJustSayThatOutLoud?
** Let's not forget pretty much the entirety of {{Deadpool}} and {{Cable}}'s relationship in ''CableAndDeadpool'' (suntan oil anyone?).
* One issue of ''{{Spider-Man}}'' 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.
* Willow engenders this reaction in Buffy's roommate Anaheed in ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Season 9'' #1:
-->"That's what ragers are for! Your friends are sweet, and wild, and Willow has made me bi-curious but don't tell her that."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Fiction]]
* ''FanFic/NobodyDies'' has this occur in chapter 14 with Ritsuko having thoughts about Maya in a plugsuit. What makes it notable is that not only is a direct homage to the trope-naming scene, it helps her come to terms with her sexuality and paves the way for an eventual RelationshipUpgrade with Maya. Also, no squick for Ritsuko.
-->[[ItMakesSenseInContext Misato took things into her own hands, packed up the adult novelties into the largest crate she could find and had them launch it via Eva catapult into the Pacific.]] Maya looked heartbroken but carried on, and Ritsuko stares at her computer and sighs.\\
''"It's like I'm wearing nothing at all."''\\
A grimace, image of her assistant's nicely toned posterior in blue spandex passing her vision.\\
''"Nothing At All."''\\
Shaking a bit as she walks.\\
''"NOTHING AT ALL."''\\
She sighs. Rubbing the bridge of her nose and slumping back into her chair, she rests her folded hands on her lap and shrugs.\\
"Stupid sexy Maya," she says, "Well, alright. I guess I'm a lesbian."\\
A bump against a wall and Ritsuko turns, just as Maya quickly gathers up her folders and runs back into the hallway. Akagi could swear she heard the girl squeal.
* Mentioned briefly in ''FanFic/{{Princess}}''; Julien is a female-to-male {{Transsexual}}, and can pass as male quite easily to anyone who doesn't know enough about lemurs to tell the difference. To other lemurs, however, it's a different matter, and surgery isn't really an option for him. Maurice mentions how awkward it is to work for a male-identified king who so strongly resembles an attractive female.
* ''FanFic/RespawnOfTheDead'' has a ShoutOut to the {{Trope Namer|s}}, except he actually ''is'' wearing nothing at all at the time.
-->“Stupid pretty Medic[.]”
* In ''Fanfic/ThinkingInLittleGreenBoxes'' [[TookALevelInBadass after Neville returns from Asgard,]] Draco has to remind himself to sneer not to stare.
* ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'': Karkat and "female fetishist" Kanaya are both rather disturbed to realise they've been bordering on [[SlapSlapKiss caliginous]] flirting when arguing.
* In one side story to ''[[JusticeLeagueOfEquestria Mare of Steel]]'', Rainbow Dash [[GenderBender gets turned into a colt by Red Kryptonite]]. This still does not stop her from flirting with her LoveInterest Thunderlane once she starts turning back into a mare, and Thunderlane has to try ''very'' hard not to get turned on by her[=/=]him.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''VictorVictoria'', a musical about a woman who poses as a female impersonator, features a gangster who knows full well she's a woman, but has to convince everyone ''else'' that this trope isn't at play.
* Played for laughs in ''{{Orgazmo}}'':
-->'''Dave the Lighting Guy:''' ''Dude, I don't wanna sound like a queer or nothin', but I think you got a hot ass!''
-->'''Dave the Lighting Guy:''' ''I don't wanna sound like a queer or nothin', but I think unicorns kick ass!''
-->'''Dave the Lighting Guy:''' ''I don't wanna sound like a queer or nothin', but I'd kinda like to make love to you!''
* From ''[[Creator/QuentinTarantino True Romance]]'':
-->"{{Elvis|Presley}} looked good. I mean, I ain't no fag, but Elvis was prettier than most women, you know? [...] You know, I always said if I had to fuck a guy [...] if my life depended on it, I'd fuck Elvis."
* Norm [=MacDonald=]'s character in ''DirtyWork'' "understands why women find Sean Connery sexy," and steals a ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' poster from the site of one of his schemes.
* ''Film/{{Borat}}'':
--->'''Borat:''' ''You telling me the man who try to put a rubber fist in my anus was a homosexual?''
* ''{{Hamlet 2}}'''s musical-within-a-movie has a song about how Jesus is this:
-->Immaculate conception really makes my day
-->But the dude's got lats that make me feel gay!
* In ''Film/{{Hair}}'' a long haired hippie named Woof is asked by a shrink whether he was a homosexual. He replies with "Well, I wouldn't kick Mick Jagger out of my bed, but uh, I'm not a homosexual, no."

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Seregil of the ''{{Nightrunner}}'' series is a {{Bishounen}} with a tendency to cause these moments among his male friends, either while he's [[UnsettlingGenderReveal disguised as a woman]] or [[ShirtlessScene dressed provocatively]]. For one friend in particular, the awkward moments are indeed foreshadowing for [[OfficialCouple subsequent gayness.]]
* [[{{Bishonen}} Raziel]] is very prone to giving Biff some of these in ''Literature/LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff''. Sure, Biff hasn't been laid in about 2,000 years, but sometimes you have to wonder. There's even a scene Biff ''demands to see his angel-junk'' before the straight part of his brain realizes when he's doing and makes him stop. He insists it was purely curiosity. [[SarcasmMode We completely believe him on this]]. Raziel is also ''literally'' stupid, and is described as being as dumb as a sack of hammers.
* Creator/TerryPratchett very explicitly lampshades the "man cross-dressing is ''[[AttractiveBentGender beautiful]]''" trope in ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'' before utterly and wonderfully subverting it. The man in question is Nobby Nobbs, who carries a card signed by the Patrician certifying that he is almost certainly human. Because [[IAmNotWeasel it's often necessary]].
** He is extremely reluctant to change out of his female clothing, and afterwards Nobby is, for reasons never adequately explained (well, except for RuleOfFunny), prone to volunteering to be used as the ostensibly female bait in any "sting" operation. Despite the fact that the beautiful and actually female (and hypercompetent, as she's also a werewolf) Angua is also in the Watch, and is frequently ''partnered'' with Nobby for these operations. Very few people actually have StupidSexyFlanders reactions to Nobby, despite his expectations.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': It's worth mentioning that Harry himself has a lot of StupidSexyFlanders moments when Bill Weasley is around, and when watching Tom Riddle in the Pensieve. And at least one moment with Cedric Diggory... and he pretty much can't refer to Sirius's teenage self without dropping the word "handsome."
** From the fourth film, Parvati Patil seems to have one when Hermione walks down the stairs all dolled up for the Yule Ball. Her jaw drops and she exclaims "she looks beautiful".
*** Even Pansy Parkinson, Hermione's arch-nemesis, can't seem to stop gawking at her during the Yule Ball.
* In ''Literature/{{Maledicte}}'', heterosexual man Gilly finds himself baffled by his attraction to Mal. A case of DramaticIrony, since he doesn't know (but we do) that Mal is actually a [[SweetPollyOliver woman in disguise]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', being a show [[RunningGag rife with jokes about the Holmes/Watson bromance]], has this sort of thing crop up from time to time. One of the most iconic instances involves John commenting on Sherlock’s ''cheekbones''. Sherlock has the decency to [[CelibateHero just]] [[{{Asexuality}} look]] [[MarriedToTheJob confused]].
-->'''John:''' You being all mysterious with your - cheekbones. And turning your coat collar up so you look cool.
* A guy [[GirlOfTheWeek briefly]] dates [[TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine Christine]]. During that episode, all of the women who have even momentary contact with him take photos of him on their phones, which they trade and discuss whenever he's mentioned. In addition, he [[EvenTheGuysWantHim confuses the hell]] out of Matthew.
* Probably the best example of this is Ace Rimmer from ''Series/RedDwarf'' "What a guy!"
** Indeed, the ostensibly straight alternative universe Kryten went so far as to proposition Ace.
* ''{{Buffyverse}}'':
** Early plans for ''Buffy'' included having one of the Scoobies come out as gay (logically, either Willow [[spoiler:(who eventually did)]] or Xander [[spoiler:(who didn't)]]). The former's chances became markedly increased with occurrences of this trope after her [[EvilTwin Evil Doppelganger]] episode, in which Real Willow comments, "I'm so evil and skanky. And I think I'm kinda gay."
** From the same verse: In one of the early episodes of ''Series/{{Angel}}'', this bit of dialogue occurs with Doyle, otherwise shown to be straight:
--->'''Doyle:''' Just look at him, going out to fight evil, his long coat swinging behind him in a mysterious and attractive manner...\\
'''Cordelia:''' Do you need a moment?\\
'''Doyle:''' I'm not saying ''I'm'' attracted, but...\\
''(Angel comes into the office, says some heroic-sounding stuff, and marches off with his coat swinging in slo-mo.)''\\
'''Doyle:''' Maybe I'm a little attracted.
** In "Superstar", everyone in Jonathan's world is hot for Jonathan. Buffy, looking for clues, asks Giles if he has a Jonathan Swimsuit Calendar. He replies "No! ...yes. It was a gift!"
** Xander has a few of these moments.
-->'''Xander:''' No one is judging you. It's understandable! Spike is strong and mysterious, and sort of compact, but well-muscled...
-->'''Buffy:''' I am not having sex with Spike! But I'm starting to think that ''you'' might be!
** In Season 9, Willow engenders this reaction in Buffy's roommate Anaheed.
* ''Series/ICarly'': Carly and Sam agree: Tasha's hot.
* Whether or not you ship [[Series/{{Merlin}} Merlin/Arthur]], watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kg5JXNug9Ac this scene]] and tell me Merlin isn't blushing.
** ''Merlin'' isn't blushing. The ''actor'' is blushing-- and there's no telling what might have happened ''on set'' to make that happen.
** There's also this gem about Arthur from "Sweet Dreams":
--->'''King Alined''': Every woman in the land is attracted to this boy! I'm almost attracted to him myself.
* Chandler's reaction to a photograph of Tag in an episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}''. "Wa-ha-how! Don't show this picture to Monica! And please don't tell her about the 'Wa-ha-how!'"
** Also in ''Friends'', once when they found out that Phoebe spoke French, Rachel said, "Oh! [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench You're so sexy!]]"
** In another episode, Phoebe was stunned upon seeing Monica in lingerie, saying that she had "the breasts of a Greek goddess."
** There's also one episode where Denise Richards plays Ross's cousin, and all the guys (yes, [[KissingCousins even Ross]]) are turned on by her. Every time she shows up on screen, the intro of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcBPPD1fuZY "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More, Baby"]], song of the late BarryWhite, is playing on the backgroud, while her hair floats. The episode ends with her showing up at Phoebe's house, who opens the door, has the exact same reaction as the guys (same sexy music, etc), and having an inner monologue that ends with ''Go for it! She's not YOUR cousin!''
** In the episode where Brad Pitt plays Will, an old friend of Ross's, when Ross sees him and notices he's now fit he blurts out "Will! Hot stuff!" He then immediately questions himself for saying that first before anything else.
* One episode of ''Series/WillAndGrace'' has a woman causing this reaction in CampGay Jack. The woman was actually a transitioning transsexual who was "Karla from the waist up, and Karl from the waist down" until The Operation.
** In another, Grace is feeling insecure because her husband Leo is going on a Doctors Without Borders trip to Guatemala with a very gorgeous female colleage (played by Nicolette Sheridan.) When Leo tries to tell her she has nothing to worry about because she's not his type, Grace quickly snaps, "Oh, please, she's everybody's type, hell, ''I'd'' do her."
* On ''Series/TheColbertReport'', one of Stephen Colbert's threat-down's was "threats to his heterosexuality" and number one on the list was "attractive men" such as Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt. As he puts it, "I'm not gay, but I'm human."
* In one of the countless ''KeenEddie'' bromance gags, Monty encourages Eddie to to yet again stand up their intimidating boss Superintendent Johnson, and says, "It kind of scares me, ''but I like it''." He adds that it's what he's looking for in a relationship, and that he thinks he's attracted to Eddie. Later, during the confrontation in Johnson's office, Monty tries to make a quick exit before the shit hits the fan, and means to tell Eddie "I'll leave you" on his way out. But, it comes out, [[FreudianSlip "I love you."]].
* ''Series/QuantumLeap'' featured a variation: the first time Sam leaped into a woman, Al was quite disturbed to find himself attracted to his friend's new body. One possible explanation given was "latent homosexual tendencies," which he immediately dismissed. Oddly enough, it never happens again despite Sam leaping into a few other women over the course of the show.
** Those later episodes also indicate that Al sees Sam as Sam, not the person he leapt into, while the opposite was true in the episode mentioned above. {{Fanon}} guesses that the "disturbing attraction" incident led the Project to fine-tune the connection between Al and Sam so it wouldn't happen again.
* ''Series/ThirtyRock''
** The episode "Believe in the Stars" has Tracy dressing up as a white woman to prove a point. When he runs into Frank and Toofer, he asks, "Do ya think I'm sexy?" in a high girly voice. Frank laughs, "C'mon Tracy, we know it's you," then swallows hard and says, "And yes."
** When Liz guesses (wrongly) that Elisa's dark secret is that she is a man, Elisa retorts "Do you want to see me naked?" Liz's response? "Sort of." Of course, Elisa is played by SalmaHayek.
** In another episode, Liz and Frank fall for the same delivery boy, leading Frank down a journey of self-discovery. And then there's this quote from the same episode.
--->'''Liz''': No, that's not a thing, you can't be gay for just one person... unless you're a lady... and you meet Ellen.''
* In ''ABitOfFryAndLaurie'', a character is showing off his [[BlingOfWar fascist uniform]]:
-->'''Hugh Laurie:''' You look absolutely great! If I was homosexual I'd want to buy you a drink, at the very least.\\
'''Fascist:''' Thanks. If I was homosexual I'd have a pint of lager.\\
''([[DramaticPause awkward pause]])''\\
'''Hugh:''' [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday As it is, I like birds.]]\\
'''Fascist:''' Me too!
* In ''Series/{{House}}''. This is very true of Chase.
** Wilson and House appraising coworker Chase:
---> '''[[Creator/HughLaurie House]]''': [on Chase] Little girls who kiss frogs expect them to turn into you.\\
'''[[{{Bishonen}} Chase]]:''' C’mon! I’m not that good-looking.\\
'''House:''' Yeah, you are.\\
'''Wilson:''' [agrees] You kinda are.
** More comments about Chase:
--->'''House''': What makes a guy start drooling? ''(sarcastically)'' Chase, were you wearing your ''short'' shorts?
* Remember, [[GenerationKill you're not gay if you think Rudy is hot.]]
* Phoebe, during her brief time as TheEmpath, nearly had to flee the room during one episode of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' because of a man who had the hots [[BrotherSisterIncest for her sister Piper]].
* In "Tommy's Not Gay" of ''Series/{{Titus}}'', Titus has a moment in the neutral space where he talks about how everyone has had at least one moment where they are flipping through a Muscle Magazine "'cause you're a man" and upon seeing a well-toned man, he talks about his large biceps, ripped abs, and he briefly starts swaying his hips before he realized what he was doing. Throwing the magazine while screaming, he quickly did five push-ups and walked off, talking about going to a strip-club.
* An episode of the American ''BreakfastTime'' had Suzanne Whang interview Talisa Soto when the ''MortalKombat'' film came out; when they sit down on the couch, Suzanne does a double-take, is momentarily rendered speechless and says "OH! I'm sorry, I was startled by how beautiful you are!"
* In later seasons of ''Series/That70sShow'', [[FunnyForeigner F]][[AlwaysCamp ez]] obviously had a man-crush on [[TheDitz Kelso]]. To the point that, in one episode, he saw an erotic dream about Kelso, too disturbing even for him (and for Kelso too, after he learns) . As Fez later mentions, his admiration of Kelso's looks is "purely aesthetic".
* From ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000, Mr. B Natural. [[SweetOnPollyOliver Mr. B is played by a woman]].
--> '''Joel''': (swooning) Oh, Mr. B...
* ''CoryInTheHouse'': Cory finds himself lusting after a pair of chiseled legs in a pair of Daisy Dukes, only to find, to his eternal {{Squick}}, that they belong to one Jason Stickler.
* During Lita's run as a color commentator for Wrestling/{{WWE}}, she invoked this when Molly Holly (who was known for dressing conservatively) came out in a relatively low-cut top. Of course, Lita sounded wooden and completely uninterested - [[DullSurprise even more so than usual]] - which ruined the effect.
* In the comedic ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' Season 5 episode "Changing Channels," [[spoiler:the Trickster starts throwing Sam and Dean into different TV shows (and each is a thinly-veiled AffectionateParody of an existing TV show and/or genre) in an attempt to get them to "play their roles" in the Apocalypse. He first tosses them into Dean's GuiltyPleasure show, ''Dr. Sexy, M. D.'', which is a nice TakeThat to ''Series/GreysAnatomy''. When Dean sees Dr. Sexy walking down the hallway, he immediately gets all flustered and embarrassed and looks at him in an admiring and slightly flirty way. It turns out to be the Trickster in disguise and Dean figures it out because "what makes Dr. Sexy sexy is that he wears cowboy boots, ''not'' tennis shoes!"]]
* Michael Scott's epic mancrush on Ryan the Temp on the U.S. version of ''Series/{{The Office|US}}''. He gives Ryan the "Hottest Office Member" Dundie award, openly admits he'd sleep with Ryan (in "The Fire"), and calls Ryan "sweetcheeks" once in Season 3. And there are many more examples.
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' - George gets all anxious and upset after he gets a massage from a male therapist...when someone mentions Evander Holyfield and how he's a good-looking man, George gets worse...then more so seeing a poster of Holyfield.
* On ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' Lily mentions that her friend Robin (who is a woman) is many things: "Friend, confidante, occasional guest star in some confusing dreams that remind me a woman's sexuality is a moving target."
** Lily's not-that-secret desire to make out with Robin was a recurring gag on the series, with her jokingly suggesting it only to declare it [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial "Stupid...so stupid..."]]. [[spoiler: They make out near the show's end, though Lily realizes she liked the idea of it more than the actual kiss.]]
* In the ''Series/{{Castle}}'' episode "Anatomy of a Murder", Castle conspires on how a saucy love triangle might have led to a doctor's death when this happens:
-->'''Beckett''': How much TV do you actually watch?
-->'''Castle''': Enough to know that this nurse [=McClintock=] will probably be super hot.
-->''(the very hot but also very male nurse [=McClintock=] appears)''
-->'''Beckett''': Care to revise your theory?
-->'''Castle''': Not what I was expecting, but no, I'll stand by it.
* On ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'', Topanga has a moment of this in one episode:
-->'''Topanga''': If it's any consolation, I think you can do a lot better than Jennifer Bassett.
-->'''Shawn''': You think so?
-->'''Cory''': Wait a minute, Topanga, have you looked at her?
-->'''Topanga''': Okay, so she's pretty, she's tall, she drives a red new convertible, oh heck, I'd go out with her.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': As of 3.02, Mike finds Kurt's sashaying super distracting. Also, in "Hold On To Sixteen" Santana, a lesbian, says that even she felt something stirring in her "lady loins" when she saw Sam do that "magic sex dance".
* In ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', Leslie Knope has used the term "beautiful" to describe her best friend Anne on a fairly frequent basis.
* In ''{{Blackadder}}'', we have Lord Blackadder and [[SweetPollyOliver "Bob"]].
* On the August 14, 2012 episode of ''Series/TheDailyShow'', Jon Stewart mentions that the day before he'd had [[RobertPattinson "Robert]] [[TallDarkAndHandsome "Pattinson"]] as a guest on the show, and stares off into space and says, "he was... handsome..."
* ''Series/{{Community}}'': In "The Politics of Human Sexuality", Troy says that he lost the basketball match with [[HeterosexualLifePartners Abed]] because "[his] eyes are too gentle and mysterious".
* In ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'', anyone who is an elf has this effect on people.
* On ''Nashville Now'' there's [[HoYay this exchange]] between Music/RebaMcEntire (guest host) and K.T. Oslin:
-->'''[[Music/RebaMcEntire Reba]]''': What are you doing in my chair? You're supposed to be here tomorrow night.
-->'''K.T.''': Reba, you and me are going to [[http://www.sex-lexis.com/Sex-Dictionary/talk taik]]. Tonight. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kol3V2LXRE#t=1m22s Hustle your shapely fanny]] back over here and [[http://www.sex-lexis.com/Sex-Dictionary/get%20to%20it we'll get to it]] after this commercial.
* When Beau Ryan of the Cornulla-Sutherland Sharks appears on the ''NRL Footy Show'' [[WalkingShirtlessScene in the nude]], we hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4t6wxM4__g#t=0m17s wolf whistles]] from the men ''as well as'' the women in the [[StudioAudience studio audience]].{{NSFW}}
* ''Good Day America'': After reporter Anna Gilligan [[WalkingSwimsuitScene strips down to a bikini]] to try out the Tarzan rope swing at Action Park, news anchor Rosanna Scotto ogles her in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuAWGjJKw0I this segment]].

[[folder:Music]]
* RoyZimmerman's song ''Dick Cheney (Sexiest Man Alive)'' is about this trope.
-->''I'm not gay... but [[{{Squick}} there's]] [[IfItsYouItsOkay always the one guy]].''
* A song by Draco and the Malfoys titled "Tom Felton's Kinda Hot" embodies this particular trope.
-->''And even though I'm straight, I'm not ashamed to say: Tom Felton's kinda hot.''
* The band Gay For Johnny Depp (http://www.gayforjohnnydepp.com/)
* The Of Montreal's song ''Tim, I Wish You Were Born a Girl''
* VisualKei musicians often inspire this. Some of the most common to draw this reaction are [[Music/YoshikiHayashi Yoshiki]], [[Music/TaijiSawada Taiji]], Music/{{Miyavi}}, and [[Music/{{Versailles}} Hizaki]].
* The album cover of George Hrab's ''[[http://www.geologicrecords.net/geoInterrobang.asp Interrobang]]''.
* Dani Shay sometimes has this effect on straight girls.[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pt7KmYLQOsY Here]]
* FlightOfTheConchords has the song "Bret, You've Got it Going On" in which Jermaine attempts to cheer up Bret.
* Voltaire seems to have a bit of this for Keanu Reeves in the song Future Ex-Girlfriend.
--> And no one cares that you love Keanu / oh what's the difference anyway / everybody knows he's gay / okay, I don't really know that / but let's face it, he's too hot to be straight
** Not to mention Johnny Depp... in a thong.
* The song "No Homo" by The Lonely Island begins as a defense and demonstration of this but then amplifies into ridiculousness.
* In ''ShakeItUp'', [=CeCe=], commenting on [[GoldDigger Deuce's predatory girlfriend]] of the week: "No wonder Deuce like's her more than me. ''I'' like her more than me."
* Frank Zappa's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSUHGcVda0g "Punky's Whips"]] is ten solid minutes of this, chronicling Terry Bozzio' attraction to the androgynous guitarist of the glam group Angel.
* FranzFerdinand's "Michael".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Stand-Up Comedy]]
* LouisCK has a routine about having this reaction to Ewan [=McGregor=] in his special "Shameless". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLEqH00nQac]]
* Creator/JamieFoxx has an extended routine exploring this happening when he met Prince. While ice skating.
* RonWhite has a routine about pointing this tendency out to a homophobic [[strike: friend]] cousin.
-->Ron: Look, we're all gay. It's just different degrees.
-->Ray: No way, man! I'm not gay.
-->Ron: Okay, do you like watching porn?
-->Ray: You know I love porn.
-->Ron: Do you only watch the kind that's two women?
-->Ray: No way, man! I like watching a man and a woman makin' love.
-->Ron: Okay, do you like it best if the man is tiny and flaccid?
-->Ray: No way, man! I like big, hard, throbbing... huh. I did not know that about myself.
* Jimmy Dore realized he was gay for Jude Law when he saw ''Film/TheTalentedMrRipley''.
-->'''Jimmy:''' Remember that other guy in it, Jude Law? Well, ever since I saw that movie...I think...I could be queer for him. And have never had a homosexual feeling ever in my life (that I ever acknowledged). I mean, he was ''beautiful'', he was prettier than the girls in that movie! And it caught me surprise; I'm watching the movie and I find myself going, "I wonder what he's gonna wear in the next scene. I hope it's linen. Ooooh, it's a pancake hat on a scooter! FRICKIN' '''HOT''', THIS GUY!"
* This an a lot more of male insecurities are the central theme in ''¿Quien Pidio Pollo?'', a stand up comedy by the colombian actor Antonio Sanint.
* Creator/BobcatGoldthwait admits this about actor RobLowe in his standup routine, and provided the page quote for the APrettyBoyIndex page.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Archer]], of course -- he's the character the term "[[MemeticMutation GAR]]" was invented for. In story, Tohsaka gets turned on by Saber at a few points.
** Lancer also causes this for a number of fans, including the (male) artist of the manga, who calls him "the sexiest man in the game."
* Bridget's third ending in the story mode of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear XX'' involves him (a boy in a nun habit) fighting Johnny, a lady's man who flirts with everything remotely female in his path. Johnny flirts with Bridget before the fight... and then [[UnsettlinggenderReveal collapses in abject horror afterwards, on realizing what he just did]].
** And Bridget is famed for causing this in fans. [[MemeticMutation Everyone's gay for Bridget!]]
* This is apparently a problem for players of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', which carried over to Snake's appearance in ''[[http://www.gamespot.com/users/macrules_640/view_image?id=btcJsksi7hqc4h7lkQ Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]''. The fact that his [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] does end up putting his ass in your face doesn't help (neither does the fact that the section about it on Nintendo's official site actually has a screenshot ''paused on that one moment'').\\
On the ''Brawl'' official site, there's one shot of him manhandling Ike in an ambiguous manner, one shot of him posing serenely while fondling the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything rocket launcher resting between his legs]], and one shot of him kicking at the camera with what probably qualifies as '[[PantyShot upskirt]]'. Four of the other screenshots have his incredibly shapely buttocks right at the focal point of the picture, as well as his "Congratulations!" screen when you beat Classic mode, and his pose on the character scroll in the opening cinematic, and his pose whenever he loses a match. For a manly male character, he does a ''lot'' of [[MrFanservice cheesecake]].
* For [[NerdsAreSexy some bizarre reason]], a certain ImageBoard with a not-hidden gay crush on Snake also has this problem with the Medic from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.
* In an odd femme jealousy subversion of this, Serra from ''Franchise/FireEmblem: Blazing Sword'' starts trying to lay out terms of being around the camp to this beautiful blond girl who just joined their ranks. During the conversation Serra discovers this beautiful blond girl is a Monk named Lucius, and Lucius is quite certain he is in fact a monk, and male. However, given he looks like [[http://fireemblemblog.files.wordpress.com/2007/06/lucius.jpg this]] it's hard to blame her for her conclusion.
** There are a lot of characters who face the viewer in their official art. They do not, however, follow [[http://www.feplanet.net/media/gallery/2/legault.jpg Legault's]] method of planting a smirk on his face and looking like he ''enjoys'' the attention. And posing rather seductively.
* Link from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has caused this in a few straight male fans. The pantslessness of some incarnations of him only adds to it. Perhaps not coincidentally, he's a ''very'' popular target for GenderBender art.
** Beyond that, he was even voted by "Out" Magazine as the Hottest Video Game Character, complete with this quote: "When darkness enshrouds the land, Nintendo's sexy farm-boy-turned-wolf sets out to save the day in this upcoming game. His weapons: a sword, a bow, arrows and kick-ass grooming skills." Cue the insecure fanboy cries of "[[strike:I'M]] LINK'S NOT GAY, DAMMIT!"
*** That damn ShirtlessScene for the sumo training in ''Twilight Princess''...
** And on the girls' side we have [[{{Bifauxnen}} Sheik]]. Many a fangirl were not happy to find that Princess Zelda [[UnsettlingGenderReveal Dropped A Bridget On Them]]. The infamous Gannon Banned website even has, "not accepting that Sheik is a most epic ReverseTrap," as one of their Gannon-Bannable offenses.
* In ''[[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 Mask of the Betrayer]]'', a male PC with a high enough Charisma stat can catch Gann in one of these.
* ''AirForceDelta Strike'': Most of the male characters have have physiques more in line with professional body-builders or fitness instructors than pilots. It could be MrFanservice turned UpToEleven if not for being able to legitimately ask [[MostGamersAreMale if any women have ever played the game]].
* Going by his later reference to the "strapping blood elf," Martek in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' is ''not'' [[{{Elfeminate}} confused about the gender]] of that one "hot babe" in his tall tale. He just doesn't seem to care.
* Garrus of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' is known to induce this in otherwise straight male fans of the series (and at least some lesbians) due to essentially being [[http://rooster82.deviantart.com/art/Turian-Batman-157842842 Turian]] Franchise/{{Batman}} with a dash of {{Adorkable}} thrown in.
* Arty from ''LufiaII''. In the German version he was even changed into a girl.
* "If I had to choose, I'd choose you (Souji/Yu) you're so handsome and reliable." Says [[Persona4TheAnimation Yosuke.]]
** During the Crossdressing Pagent, on seeing [[spoiller:Teddie]] in an [[AliceAllusion Alice outfit]], one male spectator declares, "I'd hit it."
* Many, ''[[CastFullOfPrettyBoys many]]'' male characters from Final Fantasy have made male gamers feel this way, wether it be from [[BadAss badassery]], [[{{Bishonen}} prettiness]] or both. Narrowing it down to ''which ones'' varies from person to person, but the most common invokers of this trope seem to be [[FinalFantasyVII Cloud]][[note]][[AttractiveBentGender crossdressing]] or not[[/note]] and [[CrisisCoreFinalFantasyVII Zack]].

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in [[http://twokinds.deviantart.com/art/Sketchithon-02-Wearing-Nothin-At-All-354094257 this]] bit of ''Twokinds'' Deviantart.
** In the actual comic, [[CatGirl Flora]] [[http://twokinds.keenspot.com/archive.php?p=435 Occasionally suffers from]] Stupid Sexy [[NonHumanHumanoidHybrid Kat]]
* According to the rules of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', any straight GenderBender becomes bisexual for the duration. Also, the "Female Variant Five" setting (and Ellen's 'Venus' beam based on it), in addition to turning [[AttractiveBentGender men into exceptionally beautiful women]] and making women more, er, [[MostCommonSuperpower "womanly"]], makes the victim [[LoveIsInTheAir extremely attractive to any non-relative]], whether they like girls or not, for 48 hours (of a 30-day duration). Unsurprisingly, these two things lead to ''lots'' of StupidSexyFlanders moments, most notably when [[spoiler:the revelation that it only lasts the first 48 hours causes a lesbian to come out of denial]]. And then there's Tedd without his glasses, a borderline WholesomeCrossdresser (albeit an unintentional one). However, Justin, who is gay, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-07-03 doesn't actually think he's attractive]] to him (or other gay men).
** As explained in the comic, Ted is TOO girly for gay men(Well, Justin at least) to find attractive. Straight men, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim on the other hand...]]
** It's hard to say if [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2005-10-15 this version]] from ''El Goonish Shive'' is a subversion, inversion, reversion, or just plain weird. female!Elliot objects to his girlfriend ogling male!Susan, leading to the following exchange:
-->'''Sarah:''' I'm sorry, Elliot, but ''look at him!''
-->'''female!Elliot:''' ...yeah, I guess he ''is'' hot.
-->'''female!Tedd:''' Um, dude...?
-->'''female!Elliot:''' What? I'm wearing a skirt, and I have boobs. I'm not going to start worrying about my manly image ''now''.
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-01-26 Noah]] has been informed in the past that he has this ability:
-->'''Noah:''' I've been told I could make straight men see rainbows.
* As ''FurWillFly'' points out, [[http://www.jadephoenix.org/fwf/comics/index.php?date=furwillfly20030519.jpg the opposite]] is definitely possible.
* Aragorn assuming Legolas was a ridiculously sexy woman was something of a RunningGag in ''DMOfTheRings'':
-->'''Aragorn:''' Your character is seriously hot. She's hawt with a capital "HAW".\\
'''Legolas:''' My character is a man!\\
'''Aragorn:''' Your character portrait says differently. '''''ME-OW!'''''
* Chrono became the butt of this gag when the ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' FanWebComic ''[[http://www.entropymax.com/ Nanoha R'r]]'' portrayed [[ViewerGenderConfusion Yuuno]] as pretty enough for [[EvenTheGuysWantHim guys to have crushes on him]]. [[http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/8387/nanorr03translatedrd2.png Observe]].
* Kano from ''{{Kagerou}}''. Granted, DudeLooksLikeALady... or is that [[SplitPersonality Dudes Look Like A Lady]]?
* In ''DominicDeegan'' Kiya has a [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2009-06-09 Stupid Sexy Reinhold]] moment. That he is a man is not so much of a problem here, but the fact that he is a [[FantasticRacism Calanian]].
* In ''TheDragonQueen'', caretaker and guardian Rodney finds himself attracted to his cross-dressing ward and immediately orders Bradley to never wear such clothing again in his presence. He gets called on it later and repents.
* [[http://threepanelsoul.com/2009/04/22/on-hypotheticals/ This strip]] of WebComic ''ThreePanelSoul''.
* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2010/05/06/142-snake-in-the-grass-part-2/ takes this trope regarding snake]] and [[RefugeInAudacity runs with it]].
* Hazel in ''GirlsWithSlingshots'', when Jaime's sister Fiona comes to visit.
-->'''Hazel''': No... no, I don't ''like'' boobs... I don't ''like'' boobs!
-->'''Attendant''': ''Everybody'' likes boobs, [[CampGay honey]].
* [[HornyDevil Dabbler]] from ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' (see page picture, the [[{{Underboobs}} Underboob]] on the right is hers) inspires this whenever she turns on the succubus charm to the max (she loathes having to lower it "below ten" in her own words) and straight women who see her in this appearance can be seen repeating "Not a lesbian!" in their mind over and over. And men have to remind themselves that they're married, or that she's a subordinate.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Franchise/SpiderMan, but only if you [[http://www2.b3ta.com/spidermanwillmakeyougay/ watch him dance]], apparently.
* This happens in ''DarwinsSoldiers'', to which Aimee mentions how she can see how Hailey thought that Subject 19 was cute.
* In his ''Film/IndependenceDay'' review, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic has this with WillSmith.
-->[[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan *slapping himself* BOOBS! You like BOOBS!]]
** And again with KeithDavid.
-->[[ArousedByTheirVoice "God, I'd go gay for that voice."]]
* While she can't stand the movie, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick mentions a few times that Disney/{{Pocahontas}} is extremely hot.
* [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] wasn't worried about being gay, but a different sexual kink: He was just ranting against gamers who consider the underaged [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Rikku]] hot, when they slip in a pictue of a *ahem* well devloped cosplayer in a kinky Rikku costume, distracting Spoony for a moment before cursing the 'Stupid Sexy Cosplayers'.
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' does an annual [[{{MST}} review/mocking]] of photos of fan-made HSR costumes. In the 2005 edition, Strong Bad was baffled by a hot woman dressed in a Homestar costume. ("''Hot Homestar?!'' My brain is splitting in half!") He screams and runs away when the real Homestar walks in, offers him a back rub, and calls him "sweetie".
* During his review of ''NinjaGaiden2'', [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] reminds us all that [[GearsOfWar Cliff Blezinsky]] is an extremely sexy man.
* [[FrothyPintOfMetal Happy Viking]] has this reaction to the members of ''Týr'', who like to play [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless]].
* There's some ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' [[http://blazinreshiram.deviantart.com/art/Stupid-Sexy-Flandre-202904122 fanart]] out there of Marisa thinking about [[IncrediblyLamePun stupid sexy Flandre]].
* Website/{{Cracked}}.com's columnists (male and female) seem to have a giant crush on fellow columnist Soren Bowie, sometimes seemingly using any excuse to include photos of him in an article.
* [[JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio]] getting this reaction from male fans is something of a running gag whenever he's brought up. ''Especially'' on Spacebattles.
* WebVideo/HonestTrailers: ''Film/TheHungerGames'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hp_xsUg9ws&feature=relmfu has the narrator doing this]] to Liam Hemsworth ("I'm not gay, but would [[CensoredForComedy *bleep* Gale's *bleep*]]).
* This trope is often the case with the [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ridiculously-photogenic-guy-zeddie-little 'Ridiculously Photogenic Guy' meme]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* A gay version of this appears in ''WesternAnimation/Archer''. After Cyril and Lana break up, the latter [[spoiler: seemingly]] sleeps with every man in [=ISIS=] as revenge. When Cyril finds that openly gay Ray is in line, Ray remarks:
--> Girl please, nobody is that gay.
* Ned Flanders in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', as described above, although the fact that he's a chiseled male specimen is highlighted in more than one episode. [[TropeNamers The trope's name comes from a line uttered by Homer in the episode "Little Big Mom"]].
-->'''Ned''': Feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. Nothing at all. [[BrokenRecord Nothing at all]]!
** Also happened in the episode "Lisa the Tree Hugger".
-->'''Homer''': This is all your fault, with your nonthreatening Bobby Sherman-style good looks! No girl can resist your charm!
-->'''Jesse''': This was her choice, Mr. Simpson.
-->'''Homer''': I'm sorry, I wasn't listening, I was lost in your eyes.
** There's another example in TheMovie, where Ralph Wiggum, after seeing Bart naked, proclaims "I like men now!"
** In "Hungry Hungry Homer", while Homer is convincing Sherri to go to a dance with Bart.
-->'''Homer''': Who would you rather go with?
-->'''Sherri''': Tommy.
-->'''Homer''': Well, duh! He's breathtaking.
** Averted with Hans Moleman. Nobody's gay for him.
*** Except in "Three Gays of the Condo".
-->'''Gay Man in Military Costume''': You're coming home with me!
-->'''Moleman''' (in his old army uniform): Yes, Colonel.
* In ''CloneHigh'', this happens when Joan of Arc disguises herself as 'John Dark' to get closer to Abe by joining the basketball team. This backfires when JFK starts to question his orientation...
** Lampshaded as thoroughly as possible:
--> Joan of Arc (in an obviously fake deep voice, wearing an obviously fake moustache but still otherwise a teenaged girl): "My name is John Dark."
--> George Washington Carver: "As in Jeanne d'Arc, the French name for Joan of Arc?"
--> Joan: "No, nothing like that" (shifty eyes).
* In ''SpongeBobSquarePants'', when Squidward tries to picture his rival, Squilliam, in his underwear (in order to face Squilliam face to face), he realizes that "Oh no, He's hot!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'', Owen couldn't stop staring at Justin. Then again every girl on the show couldn't stop either.
* ''TheFairlyOddparents'': Upon seeing Mr. Turner in a speedo, [[SitcomArchNemesis Dinkleberg]] remarks "Hey, looking good Turner!"
** From the Ms. Dimmsdales pagent.
-->'''[[Creator/AdamWest Catman]]:''' Say, think I can get her phone number?
-->'''Timmy:''' That's no she, that's my Dad!
-->'''Catman:''' So you have it then?
** Mr. Turner thinks teen pop sensation Chip Skylark is delicious and considers Mr. Crocker gorgeous (though hates him for it, thinking Crocker is eyeballing his wife).
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** The "Christian Rock Hard" episode. Although parodies, the lyrics of some of Cartman's songs are pretty clear examples...
--> Whenever I see Jesus, up on that cross, I can't help but think that He looks kinda hot...
--> I wanna get down on my knees, and start pleasing Jesus: I wanna feel His salvation, all over my face...
--> And of course - Body of Christ! Sleek swimmer's body, all muscled-up and toned...
** "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub" takes this one all the way.
* Octus has one of these moments regarding Lance in the ''SymBionicTitan'' episode "Phantom Ninja". When Ilana remarks that she doesn't get what the girls at school see in Lance, Octus replies:
-->“Dark hair. Bedroom eyes. Moody demeanor. I totally get it.“
* In the ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' episode "Family Camping Trip", Dan has moments like this with Elise's ex, Colby.
* Beezy to TCFM on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. Then again, that may be because [[IdenticalStranger he looked just like him]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' Peter somehow ended up sleeping with BillClinton after he slept with Lois. This is because it's [[ThePornomancer Clinton]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Boondocks}}'' episode "Pause" plays with this, especially this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNS6M_E4RuU scene]].
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' Bobby Hill's favourite NASCAR driver is Jeff Gordon. Why? Because "he's handsome".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* A TruthInTelevision. According to some studies hardly anyone is ''completely'' heterosexual or ''completely'' homosexual, and so it can happen that someone who mostly prefers people of the opposite sex can have sexual fantasies about people of the same sex, and vice versa.
** Creator/ArthurCClarke said it best: "I think we're ''all'' polymorphously perverse to some degree."
* Music producer Steve Binder expressed this regarding Elvis:
-->'''Steve:''' "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. And if you never knew he was a superstar, it wouldn't make any difference; if he'd walked in the room, you'd know somebody special was in your presence."
* Shortly after Music/MichaelJackson's demise, a couple of radio announcers:
-->If you saw Michael on the street you would scream.
-->No way!
-->Sure you would, it's ''Michael Jackson!''
-->I would not scream over a man.
-->I'm telling you, if you saw him, you would give out a prince.
* In AFI's Lifetime Achievement salute to Actor/SeanConnery, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQYp8xJ4kpo Mike Myers told Sir Sean,]] "Women want to be with you, men want to be you. And there are those men who want to be you ''and'' be with you. I'll admit it, I have a man-crush."
** It should be pointed out that Myers himself wore full Scottish formal attire for the presentation, complete with kilt.
* Former hockey defenceman Aaron Ward recalls the "no shirt rule" that he had at his house when rookie defenceman Jiri Fischer was his roommate:
--> "I had to have this "no-shirt rule" in the house. He [Jiri Fischer] wasn't allowed to be [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]] in the house. The kid's built like a Greek god. I didn't want my wife [[FemaleGaze seeing that]]. One day he was sitting at the computer with no shirt on and [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn I'm like, "Hey Jiri, you know the rule."]].
* Allison Williams, playing an extremely {{Bifauxnen}} Peter Pan in ''Peter Pan Live'', inspired a lot of this from straight women in the audience. As Anna Kendrick tweeted:
--> ''Watching a grown woman play an adolescent boy is perhaps the most sexually confusing moment of my life.''
