They're so fascinating. Why is that? 'Cause they don't want us. *clicks tongue*
You gotta respect that."
In some Western countries, it is believed that, deep inside his heart, every straight man is turned on by two or more women interacting sexually; specifically, lesbians. The idea is that if a woman having sex is arousing, then two women having sex is twice as arousing. Plus, there aren't any male rivals in the way.
Since young men are key demographics for networks and advertisers, and because Most Writers Are Male, lesbian fanservice aimed at the former flourishes. See: Catfight; Fanservice Faux Fight; Lovely Angels; Romantic Two-Girl Friendship; Schoolgirl Lesbians; Sweeps Week Lesbian Kiss; and Skinship Grope. The trope also holds a lot of attraction for trans women who are attracted to women. Expect a male character to feel that Girl-On-Girl Is Hot when All Men Are Perverts is in play. If this goes too far, it can lead to less welcome tropes such as Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female.
This trope is for in-universe character reactions to female/female titillation, not for every time you think a lesbian love scene was intended for male fanservice. For fanservice that doesn't involve a voyeur, see Les Yay. For those who are interested in the romantic and emotional aspects of lesbian relationships, see Yuri Fan. For the rapidly increasing Spear Counterpart, see Guy-on-Guy Is Hot.
- Early in the Ah! My Goddess manga (the 15th chapter), during a beauty contest at Nekomi Tech, Urd hooked a finger into the top of Sayoko's swimsuit and took a good look inside. "Just checking ... and mine are bigger!" The watching males were going ape, and Otaki, acting as an announcer, said, "Now, now, Miss Urd! No trying for bonus point!"
- In Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts, Tsuchiya ('Voyeur') whips out his camera and Akihisa helps him with the lighting (though he's also saying that homosexuality is wrong) when it looks like Shouko is about to kiss Himeji. She doesn't.
- Blend-S has the chef Kōyō Akizuki, whose obsession with yuri makes him desire to witness female best friends doing casually intimate things together, like sharing dessert, examining and fondling each other's bodies, etc. This makes him wish that the cafe, which is male orientated due to the waitresses being attractive female archetypes, had more female customers.
- In the second episode of the anime, Akizuki tests the idea of female customers by having Maika and Kaho feed each other dessert. He naturally gets pretty turned on by it. At the end of the same episode, the cafe gets a pair of female customers. But they're not exactly what Akizuki was hoping for.
- In Bloom Into You, Touko plays the main character in the play, while Sayaka plays her lover. Koyomi, who wrote the play, made the choice because people thought they were like a married couple. Doujima pesters Koyomi to add a kiss scene, and when Sayaka's character takes the stage during the actual play, the crowd goes wild. Sayaka, who's in love with Touko (who doesn't return her feelings) is not amused.
- Sunohara in CLANNAD was overloading with hormones when he and Tomoya tricked Ryou into thinking that Nagisa is going to confess her love to her, and the entire thing started playing out like something straight out of a Yuri Genre anime, complete with Intertwined Fingers and roses blooming.
- In an episode of the third season of The Familiar of Zero, Saito was visibly...interested when the girls took an OD of Love Potion while he wasn't around...
- During the pocky scene between Yomi and Kagura in Ga-Rei -Zero-, Kazuki was obviously interested, if initially embarrassed, in what was going on in the backseat. The pilot couldn't care less.
- Ghost Talkers Daydream: Deliberately invoked by Misaki's co-worker, Shizue, in chapter 5, when she arranges to do a photo shoot for a lesbian magazine; featuring the two of them doing S&M play. The photographers were snapping so many shots they were running out of film!
- Girls Bravo: The reason Fukuyama hosts his private underground "Girls Fight!" competition. And to ensure there's plenty of eye candy for himself and the crowd, he's set the rules so the ladies have to wear progressively smaller swimsuits as they advance in the rankings.
- In later episodes of Haruhi Suzumiya Taniguchi and Kunikida start drooling upon seeing Tsuruya affectionately rub Mikuru.
- At one point in Heaven's Lost Property, Tomoki is trying to meditate when he suddenly imagines Ikaros and Nymph embracing suggestively. He gets a Raging Stiffie.

- The finale of Majokko Meg-chan has a Catfight between Meg and Non that has blatant sexual undertones, and the scene constantly cuts to Chou getting off on it.
Takeru: (thinking) "Dammit—!! We missed a chance to see Aki-sensei and Haru-nee sleeping (with their breasts squeezing against each other)!"Usui: (thinking, at Takeru) "We missed it and it's YOUR fault!!"
- At the start of chapter 29, Takeru declines Usui's offer to peep on the girls, but he ends up regretting the following morning when he hears what they missed out on:
- The preface page of chapter 45 shows Takaki and Yuuka spooning together in lingerie, while Yuuka's hand is down the front of Takaki's panties. However, the caption explains the scene has nothing to do with the story and is purely for fanservice.
- In chapter 69, Takaki and Haruko explain what Love Espada did to them at the previous Himekagura Festival. Not only were Takeru and Usui okay with it, they lament not being there to see it.
- Near the end of chapter 76, Usui eavesdrops as Espada has sex with Kyoki in one of the school's clubrooms and gets a nosebleed, as he imagines it. But the reality ends up being more than he hoped for.
- Likewise, Nagasumi from My Bride is a Mermaid when Sun and Akeno "did it in the bath" in episode 18. They were just testing how long they can endure water before reverting into their mermaid form but it sounded just the right way...
- The boys happily eavesdrop on Mawari indulging in Skinship Grope with the Class Rep.
- Invoked in Naka No Hito Genome Jikkyouchuu by Roromori. As their objective is to raise their viewer count, and knowing that they're probably being constantly monitored, she flirts with fellow female participant Sarayashiki to see if it'll attract more viewers. Sure enough, it does.
- Naruto: This is Naruto's reaction to Konohamaru's jutsu appropriately named Sexy: Girl on Girl technique. Sakura called the two perverts... until Konohamaru then tried the Guy on Guy variation. The anime dropped the male version.
- Like most Skinship Grope scenes, this comes into play at the end of the Neon Genesis Evangelion episode "Magma Diver". Shinji is quite intrigued by what he hears coming from the women's side of the hot spring where Asuka and Misato are bathing.
- In One Piece, Franky was rather pleased when he saw Nami searching Kalifa for a key.
- Maybe, Kyouya Ohtori from Ouran High School Host Club. He did think that the Accidental Kiss between Haruhi and Miyako was, well, "nice".

- In one of his routines, Dave Chappelle calls it the "one penis per fantasy rule": where lesbian sex is far more pleasurable to the average male viewer (and less violent, mind you).
- George Carlin. From the part about tollbooths from the "New Jersey and License Plates" section of "More Stuff About Cars and Driving" from his 1988 album What Am I Doing In New Jersey?:
"Or just tell them, 'I don't have any quarters, I spent all my money on pussy and beer.' That'll wake them up. Especially if you're a woman!"
- In an issue of Champions, Viv Vision tries making out with the Totally Awesome Hulk to try to understand this "love" thing. She doesn't get the appeal, but suggests she might have to try with a different gender. The lads are all visibly disappointed that Ms Marvel isn't feeling experimental.
- In Echo, when Ivy Raven is starting to be seriously disturbed by the changes to her body, particularly that her mind is regressing in addition to her body, she instructs Dillon to not sleep with Julie since that is how she first began to be changed by the alloy. Dillon is too preoccupied with the implication that they had sex to recognize the importance of other parts of the conversation.
- In Fables, during the 'Animal Farm' arc, Rose Red tells her sister Snow White (with whom she's forced to share a bed for the night) that she only sleeps with girls as a "birthday present" for her boyfriend, Jack of Fables.
- The Flash: As Zen speedster Max Mercury once told Dubbilex in an issue of Young Justice, "There's only two things a man can bring to a Catfight: popcorn and a comfortable chair."

When June "awakens", Dove is gone, but June has a vague memory of her getting very angry and saying something about a male fantasy...
- In one MAD, there was an article composed of strips deconstructing various sexual hypocrisies. One had two men and two women are walking home from a movie with a lesbian sex scene that the men enjoyed, claiming that it's because the act of making love is beautiful. When the women ask what they would think of two men doing the same, the men immediately say that they find it disgusting.
- In The Maze Agency story "The Two Wrong Rhoades", Jen and Ashley (both dressed in Spy Catsuits) end up grappling each other in a darkened room. Upon hitting the lights, Gabe's reaction is:
"With a few gallons of mud, and some beer, my evening would be complete!"
- Invoked in a comic by Ignacio Noe: a man, upon finding his wife apparently cheating on him with a female friend, is aroused rather than angry. But once the man's had his fun watching/joining them and gone back out, the woman's actual paramour is revealed to be a guy who'd been hiding in the other room, along with the man who'd been sleeping with her friend. It turns out the women had heard the husband at the door and decided to take advantage of this trope by feigning bisexuality.
- Occurs in Quantum and Woody when Woody signs a television deal based on their adventures, complete with two lesbian co-stars.
- Red Ears also exploits this trope.
- In Runaways, during a game of "Truth or Dare", Karolina, Chase, and Victor goad Nico into revealing which of them is the best kisser. When Nico reveals that it was Karolina, Chase is delighted (although Victor takes it as a personal slight.) During a later appearance in Avengers Academy, Chase's opinion of the Academy is improved after finding out that Lightspeed is bisexual and that there's some chemistry between her and Karolina.
- Scott Pilgrim makes a lot of reference to lesbians being hot. Scott owned a lame poster of two chicks kissing and thought it was sexy that his girlfriend once dated a lesbian.
- During Ramona and Envy's fight scene, an onlooker yells, "Make out!"
- Scott yells "Make out!" when a drunk Ramona and Kim start cuddling.
- Scott actually accidentally sees Kim and Knives making out while drunk, but it's a Subverted Trope since he pretty much just reacts with and leaves in shock. We can only guess listening to the two of them (who were both in love with him) complain about boys prior caused Scott some self-esteem issues.
- Happens three times on Supergirl: Identity
Supergirl: I met a girl tonight.

Beth: If I got it on with ladies while we were apart, I'm sure you wouldn't want to hear every little...
Yorick: [eagerly] You were with ladies?
- Also averted: when he walks in on 355 and Dr. Mann together, he just says "This is the weirdest fucking nightmare I've ever had."

- Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion has Rivalz (and to a lesser degree, Suzaku) get turned on to the point of distraction by the flirting between C.C. and Milly. Lelouch, being used to such activities thanks to his bedroom escapades, is able to ignore them.

- Played with in the NCIS fic Shards to a Whole. Early on, when Tim and Abby make love for the first time in years, Abby admits that she enjoyed some of Tim's early erotic novels (described as a lesbian "The Dresden Files meets Anita Blake" with the leading character modeled loosely on Abby). Later, as a Valentine's day gift for their men, Abby and Jimmy Palmer's wife Breena have Ziva take photos of the two of them making out. Both Tim and Jimmy approve. This turns out to be foreshadowing for later chapters, when the Palmers and the McGees enter into a long-term polyamorous relationship with each other. Abby identifies herself as bi while the otherwise-straight Breena invokes If It's You, It's Okay.
- Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton: Shinji thinks so in chapter five's omake. Due to radiation from a special chunk of kryptonite, Asuka seduces Misato and both women start making out.

- Cloud Angle from Kid Icarus Uprising 2 Hades Revenge is this type of male, constantly reminding the readers that 'lesbeans' are cute.
- Subverted by A.A. Pessimal in a chapter of the Discworld fic There's Nothing Like a Fresh Pair of Eyes...which was advertised as containing hot girl-on-girl action. There is.

Who has recently received Igor-tooled eye implants cloned from a master sword-fighter.

- In Tickles your fancy (NSFW), Raven and Starfire end up having sex one night, even making a video. The next day, Raven is worried that she might have ruined the relationship between Starfire and Nightwing... but when she intends to go and talk to them, Beast Boy comes over, and reassures her that, judging by the sounds coming from inside Nightwing's room, it appears quite obvious he is definitely not upset at having seen the movie. A later chapter has Raven and Beast Boy watching the video together as well.
- In the (technically SFW) Black Comedy Rape-filled Touhou Project doujinshi Acting on Instinct, Reimu and Rinnosuke team up to molest various girls in Gensokyo. Specifically, Reimu does the molesting and Rinnosuke takes pictures, this trope being the motive of the whole thing for him.
- Ultra Fast Pony:
- The episode "A Library With No Twilight" parodies this phenomenon. The Interactive Narrator clearly wants Applejack and Rarity to hook up and uses his narration to read entirely too much subtext into their interactions. Applejack and Rarity want no part of this, and eventually bond (platonically) by mocking the narrator.
- In "The Best Episode Ever", Twilight Sparkle tries to pander to the audience, but she misunderstands and thinks the fans want "smoking hot thespian action". So the cast puts on a play, and the audience isn't amused.

- 40 Days and 40 Nights: A lesbian pair kiss in front of the celibate hero to try and make him break his celibacy.
- That entire scene in American Pie 2 where the boys break into a house with lesbians. They were willing to kiss and fondle each other, but they were Yaoi Fangirls as well. They wouldn't fondle each other unless the guys did stuff to each other as well. Naturally the women were willing to go all the way, but the boys struggled each step of the way and finally stopped before one touched the other's penis.
- In Le Bal des actrices by Maïwenn: Joey Starr asks his partner Maïwenn to kiss another woman, Estelle, who Maïwenn doesn't even like that much at that point.

Then Maiwenn falls head over heels for Estelle -her love unreciprocated and doesn't last long. Mostly played for laughs.
- In Bitter Moon, classy lady-like Englishwoman Fiona goes dancing and seductive French Mimi instantly joins her. They start flirting with each other and go down on each other. The whole bar cheer them. Only Fiona's husband is little uneasy because he wanted to sleep with Mimi.

- The Butchers: While trying to seduce Kip, Nicole and Candi start making out. Kip, who was anxious to get out there, decides that he has time to stop and watch.
- In Carry On Girls, this trope is subverted during a catfight between two models fighting over a "stolen" bikini. The men watching on are either disgusted (the Dirty Old Man is absolutely terrified) or try to stop them, getting attacked by the fighters in the process. Strangely, the other female models are aroused and cheer the women on.
- Chloe: Chloe seduces Catherine and they have sex in the hotel. Once he finds out, David's reaction is muted, possibly because he finds this appealing instead of threatening.

- Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd. How do you judge the winner in a make-out contest? Why, it's the judge.
- Averted in The Grand Budapest Hotel; Zero and Gustave steal the valuable painting "Boy With Apple" and replace it with a funny pornographic painting (titled in the credits as "Two Lesbians Masturbating"), but Dmitri doesn't even notice the new painting (or indeed that the original one went missing from his family's house) until much later.
- In Hatchet, Jenna and Misty are introduced making out for a porno film.

- M.F.A.: In the party at the frat house, two girls are making out while the boys watching cheer and film them.

- In Neighbors, Kelly makes out with Brooke in the frat house to turn Pete on, and then makes out with him as well. Kelly finally manages to coerce the pair, Pete and Brooke, into making out afterwards, and later, sex.

- Jacqueline Wilson has the boys in her novel Love Frankie react with excitement when they hear Frankie and Sally kissed on New Years.

- Ally McBeal:
- Used in an episode. Ling Woo asks Ally out on a date and later they dance together to entice the men who are flirting with them.
- Even more hilariously, Richard Fish's "reasoning" on why lesbians are ok, but gay guys aren't.
"The survival of the human race is dependent on the male becoming aroused. 2 women together does that to the male, whereas 2 men together causes the male to go limp for a week, thus the species is threatened"
- Bliss: All three seasons had at least one episode featuring a girl on girl pairing.
- Bottom: Eddie's video collection includes "Swedish Lesbians in Blackcurrant Jam!". Richie's thrilled until he reads the box and sees 'Swedish Legends in Blackcurrant Jam Making'.
- A Freaky Friday version in Boy Meets Girl, where Martin Freeman's character is trapped in a female body and gets a pleasant surprise when 'her' lesbian friend comes on to him: "And I'm a girl!!".
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
- In "Restless", Xander has a dream involving watching Willow and Tara. Justified, in that they really are lesbians, and would have needed only a taste for exhibitionism and wearing way too much makeup for the scene to work. In the same episode, Willow has a dream where Xander and Oz, too pointedly, note how the show uses the phrase "doing spells" for what Willow and Tara do together. After Willow wanders off, the dream remains with the boys long enough for Xander to say, "Sometimes I think about two girls doing a spell together... and then I go do a spell by myself."
- In "Buffy vs. Dracula", Willow tells Xander she's keeping a secret and he tells her that everyone knows about her and Tara by now, before adding that if she does want to tell him a secret about her and Tara, he'd be happy to listen.
- Subverted in "Storyteller" when Ambiguously Gay Andrew brings a video camera into Buffy's living room to find Willow and Kennedy kissing on the couch. He comments that this is hot and turns his camera to the window repair work recently done by Xander to which he was referring.
- Parodied with Xander again in "Dirty Girls" where he has a dream of all the teenage Potentials having a pillow fight in sexy lingerie... and is then woken up by a couple of them, wearing modest sleepwear and no make-up, complaining that the toilet's blocked again.
- Averted by Oz when he finds out about Willow and Tara in "New Moon Rising". Instead of thinking it's hot, his anger and jealousy causes him to transform into his werewolf form and attack Tara. This has more to do with Willow dating someone at all than it has with her dating a girl, because through lying by omission she had given him the impression they could get back together. After being stopped, Oz is ultimately accepting of Willow and Tara's relationship, and notably respectful enough not to reduce it to this trope. His reaction when he figures it out, in a near aversion, isn't even "Are you sleeping with her"; it's "Is she in love with you?"
- A more important aversion was choosing to do the show's first on-screen kiss between Tara and Willow in "The Body". The kiss was played as a completely normal and definitely unimportant moment of an episode focusing on Buffy and the Scoobies dealing with the immediate aftermath of the death of a loved one. The studio execs didn't advertise it as is usually the case in other series (and, indeed, reportedly tried to cut it until Joss Whedon put his foot down, leading some writers on the show to comment that networks prefer sensationalised one-off kisses to a committed long-term relationship).
- Relatively early in the series, it was decided that either Willow or Xander would end up in a same-sex relationship at some point. It wasn't until years later that Willow was chosen, probably because of this trope.
- The Cat Fight version can be seen in "This Year's Girl", where a male college student can be heard excitedly shouting for others to check out Buffy and Willow slugging it out with Faith.
- Averted in the Cold Case episode "Torn", when the detectives reopen a 1919 case of a murdered woman involved in the suffrage movement. They find what appears to be a love letter from the woman to her maid. When they bring in the maid's by-that-time elderly daughter, she just laughs and says "You men love to think that, don't you?"
- Annie and Britta are two hotties of the group. In "Investigative Journalism", Buddy is a guy who wants to join their study group. He reminisces about stuff that happened to them and what he was doing. One of his memories is Britta and Annie fighting in cheerleading outfits. Shortly after, they fall into a pool full of bubbles. Buddy does admit that he sleeps in class a lot, and that that memory may actually have been a dream.
- In "The Psychology of Letting Go" Annie and Britta's oil-wrestling match draws a very large crowd. The men of the study group also approve when they reconcile and start hugging.
- There's the male cast of Coupling, Steve in particular. Not only did an entire episode revolve around his "Lesbian Spank Inferno" video, there was a sequence in which after he was unable to give a sample at a clinic because the material provided had men in the pictures alongside women (invoking dangers of eye slippage at a crucial moment leading to a case of lower whiplash according to Jeff) so he sent Jeff to fetch some from his private collection which contained only women, 'preferably with some female friends...'
- Also very amusingly played up in the fourth season, in which Susan tests the theory that, after several years together, she can still turn him on "with a single kiss". This theory is confirmed indirectly when she passionately snogs the supposedly-bisexual Jane and turns on every man in the room, including Steve, and Jane.
- On The Daily Show, they got a bunch of Staten Island guidos to sit on as a mock Supreme Court to render a decision on Proposition 8, which would forbid same-sex marriages. The chief justice of the exercise starts the ruling with, "If two guys wanna get married, that's cool. If two chicks want to get it on, that's great", before ruling 54 against the proposition.
- Dates: The guys who buy drinks for Kate and Erica in the club then invite them to dance seem aware they're on a date together, but don't mind, particularly when they start dancing pretty seductively then kissing. Callum is also similarly very eager to hang out with Kate and Erica, as she lampshades.
- In the Doctor Who 2011 Comic Relief special, Amy hits on herself. The Doctor is annoyed, Rory is nearly catatonic.
- Echo is sent to bodyguard a beautiful female singer, and Dr Saunders goes to complain to Topher about it, saying she's only supposed to have romantic assignments. Topher quips that as Echo's last romantic assignment turned out to be dangerous, maybe this high-risk assignment will turn out to be romantic. Topher quite enjoys this idea.
- In Season 2 Claire Saunders is conducting a pelvic examination on Echo, who has a flashback memory of kissing Whiskey for the enjoyment of a male client at a masked ball.
- In an early episode of The Facts of Life, two friends become rivals when they join the track team and get into a fight. Blair tries to break it up and gets hit. When another girl describes everything to her boyfriend, she's shocked when he declares, "It sounds sexy."
- In the Farscape episode "John Quixote", the apparently-male evil controlling force of a VR game in which John and Chiana are trapped gets very creepily excited about the idea that Chiana might have to kiss a princess to "win".
- In "War Stories", it is revealed that Inara takes female clients as well as male when the councilor she invites aboard ship turns out to be a woman. Jayne, who witnesses this reveal and is the most lecherous of the crew, has only five words for this: "I'll Be in My Bunk." Kaylee also seems to have liked it.
- In "Our Mrs. Reynolds", Saffron knocks Mal out by kissing him while wearing poisonous lipstick. After she realizes he's not actually dead, Inara is so relieved she kisses him, and gets knocked out by the residue. When they've recovered, Mal assumes Inara got knocked out by kissing Saffron, and his mind naturally goes through the gutter. She's too embarrassed to correct him.
- Friends used this trope quite often:
- In "The One with George Stephanopoulos", when the guys want to go to a hockey game while Ross is bummed over his divorce:
Ross: You know what, I'd better pass on the game. I think I'm just gonna go home and think about my ex-wife and her lesbian lover.
Joey: The hell with hockey, let's all do that!
- In "The One with the Evil Orthodontist", Rachel's ex-fiancé is marrying Rachel's best friend, and now the best friend wants to talk (and Rachel just had sex with the ex-fiancé). She and the best friend practiced kissing with each other at camp and Joey asks "Now, Rach, when she taught you to kiss, you were at camp, and... were you wearing any kinda little uniform, or?" and Rachel slams the door in his face.
- In "The One with the Flashback", when Janice asks if anyone of the group ever slept together:
Joey: Well, there was that one time that Monica and Rachel got together.
Monica and Rachel: What?!!
Rachel: Excuse me, there was no time!
Joey: Okay, but lets say there was. How might that go?
- During the flashback.
Monica: Hey, are you okay?
Ross: My wife's a lesbian.
- During the flashback.
- In "The One with the Chick and the Duck", Monica slams into Rachel when she practices roller skating, knocks her down and falls on top of her. When Joey sees them, with Rachel moaning (in pain), he says: "Oh, my!"
- In "The One with the Girl from Poughkeepsie", when Rachel is sad about her single status, Chandler hugs and comforts her... then he asks: "Have you ever been with a woman?" She gets upset and he notes that there's no good time to ask that question.
- In "The One with Joey's Dirty Day", Chandler goes to a strip club with the girls to get out of his post-breakup depression, but doesn't enjoy himself... until they get home, and the girls start to contemplate which stripper they'd sleep with if they were into women.
- In "The One With All The Haste", Monica and Rachel offer to kiss each other in front of Joey and Chandler to win their apartment back. It works.
Chandler: Totally worth it!Joey: That was one good minute!Chandler: Night.Joey: Night.
- In "The One Hundredth", when Phoebe is giving birth and the gang goes to the hospital with her:
Rachel: Monica? You're gonna be very proud of me. I just got us dates with two unbelievably cute nurses.Joey: Oh my!Rachel: They're male nurses.Joey: Not in my head.
- In "The One with Joey's Big Break", Rachel is afraid to take her eye drops, and Monica tries to force her, and ends up straddling her and pinning her arms down. Rachel says: "You know, if Joey and Chandler walked in right now, we could make a fortune!"
- In "The One with Rachel's Sister", Ross mentions that he wishes he had a brother that Rachel could go out with after she accidentally gives her blessing for him to date her sister. This happens:
Ross: (to Rachel) If you ever want to go out with Monica, you have my blessing.
Joey: And mine!
- In the "What If?" episode, "The One that Could Have Been", Ross is still married to Carol. She suggests a threesome in order to spice up their sex life. Ross later confesses to Joey that he was mostly a passive participant, and he even made a sandwich while watching.
- At the beginning of the episode:
Ross: Seriously, imagine if Carol hadn't realized she was a lesbian.
Joey: I can't. I keep seeing it the good way.
- At the beginning of the episode:
- In "The One With The Birthing Video", Chandler mistakes a birthing video of a friend of Phoebe's for a girl-on-girl porn that Monica got him on Valentine's Day.
- In "The One With Rachel's Other Sister", when Rachel got into a Catfight with her sister, Amy:
Phoebe: Oh my God! Shouldn't we stop this?
Joey: What? Are you out of your mind? Let's throw some Jell-O on them!
- In "The One With The Birth Mother", Phoebe and Rachel discuss helping each other try on bras, and Phoebe says "Wait a minute. Are we in Joey's imagination?"
- Joey's sudden interest in Rachel and her friend Melissa kissing on the lips in "The One With Rachel's Big Kiss".
- In "The One With The Nap Partners", Ross and Joey judge a contest between Phoebe and Rachel to decide who will be Monica's maid of honor. Phoebe wins one of the rounds simply by saying "I remember talking about this day with Rachel, when we were showering together naked".
- When Chandler starts working as an intern in advertisement, the interns' first assignment is to come up with an idea for a TV commercial to sell sneakers on wheels. One of the interns presents a spot with lots of sexy women who are in a hot tub and they kiss each other and come out of the hot tub... except he forgets to mention the product.
- When Joey sets his mind to screwing Ross's babysitter, Chandler and Ross try to stop him. When they all see her kiss her girlfriend, they have nothing but satisfied grins.
- In "The One with George Stephanopoulos", when the guys want to go to a hockey game while Ross is bummed over his divorce:
- Game of Thrones plays with the trope occasionally:
- Subverted in one episode, when Tyrion hires two prostitutes to entertain Joffrey, hoping that if he can get the evil little shit laid, he'll stop torturing his poor betrothed Sansa. At first, Joffrey orders them to play with each other, but finds it boring. So instead, he commands one of them to beat the other, severely. He really is an evil little shit.
- An earlier episode plays with the trope in a different way, as Littlefinger watches and instructs two of his whores on how to make use of this trope with their clients, while simultaneously delivering what has popularly become known as Sexposition.
- Myranda and Violet use this to sexually abuse Theon as a lead up to a horrific Groin Attack.
- In Glee, Santana and Brittany's plan for seducing Finn is to have him buy them dinner and then allow him to watch the two of them making out, and prior to that episode Brittany implied that she and Santana were in a sexual relationship. In Season 2, they were shown kissing and made explicit verbal references to more sexual contact, but Santana explains that this does not make her gay, she just needs something warm under her to properly digest her food. Glee ended up deconstructing Girl On Girl Is Hot by having Santana realize that she was legitimately in love with Brittany and confused and scared by these feelings.
- When Blair and Serena make up after having been in a big fight in Gossip Girls third season the following exchange follows:
Chuck: If you two want to kiss... it won't count as cheating.
Serena: Creepy, Chuck.
- The Handmaid's Tale: Some of the brothel's customers clearly feel this way, as we see one having sex with a woman who's kissing another at the same time while others watch. Both Luke and Commander Waterford bring up the possibility of June and Moira having sex.
- Herman's Head. Herman and his Handsome Lech friend Jay go to a single parent group to pick up women. They start talking about their cover story.
Jay: Our wives ran off with other men.
Herman: No, our wives ran off with each other!
Jay: Ohhh yes...
Herman: We were stunned as they spent hours exploring the delights of Thai massage...
Jay: But why would we have divorced them? They could do it all they liked, as long as we were allowed to watch!
- In Season 5 of House, the bisexual Thirteen gets herself invited to the bachelor party House is planning for Chase: "If I get drunk enough, I might make out with a stripper." At the party, she does a body shot off one of the strippers (Karamel, with a K), prompting Wilson to ask her boyfriend:
Wilson: Are you okay with this?
Foreman: Okay with it? I paid fifty bucks for it.
- Foreman and Thirteen were also shown lying in bed together, with Thirteen telling him stories of her escapades with women.
- House himself is prone to this, or at least is prone to making snarky comments about watching The L Word with the sound off. He also explicitly notes, when two women (sisters, no less) start to have an argument, that they're distracting to every straight man and gay woman in the room.
- There was another episode where House thought either Foreman, Chase or Cameron was having sex with a female pharmaceutical rep, then he turned towards Cameron and said, "Please say it's you." (It was actually Foreman.)
- There was also an episode which featured Thirteen making out with a woman during a one night stand.
- On How I Met Your Mother, Barney is quite fond of this trope:
- When Ted's ex-girlfriend is seen kissing a girl, Barney quickly takes a pictures of them.
- When Lily and Robin almost got into a Cat Fight, Barney was about to take out his cellphone and record the fight, only to be angered when Ted breaks up the fight.
- Barney also records Lily beating up Jenkins, an attractive female employee at GNB, for kissing Marshall.
- Barney even added a rule on the Bro Code that "a Bro will inform another Bro when there's a Cat Fight".
- Averted when Robin tries to seduce Barney by grinding with a female co-worker of hers, but Barney nonchalantely ignores it and instead takes Robin's co-worker on a date.
- In a season 9 episode, Robin and Lily wake up Barney simply by kissing each other.
- Subverted hilariously in an episode of Jerry Springer. A man convinces his girlfriend to have a 3-way with another girl. The girlfriend finds one and takes the camera crew to her apartment to meet her. But to the guy's horror (he's watching from the stage), the third party is a total Butch Lesbian. When the ladies come onstage, the girlfriend dumps him for her and adds that the lesbian was better in bed that one time than he ever was. But more generally, Jerry Springer audiences will cheer lesbians and boo gay men.
- Deliberately invoked in the first season of The Joe Schmo Show when a fake network executive tried to get the show's "schmo," Matt, to get two of the female contestants, Ashleigh and Molly, to either go topless or kiss and if he could, then everyone would get a big-screen televisoin prize. What Matt didn't know was that the reality show he was on was fake, though despite being Genre Blind, even he smelled somthing fishy about this.
- Justified: In "The I of the Storm", Dewey Crowe celebrates a score by hiring two hookers and having them make out with each other as a prelude for the main event. He calls it the hottest thing he's ever seen.
- Just Shoot Me!:
- The entire premise of "Two Girls for Every Boy". Finch learns that an attractive female model has a crush on Maya, and does everything in his power to get them to hook up. Not only that, but random men all over town are willing to help him with whatever he needs once he tells them what he's trying to accomplish. When both of them learn this, they make it seem like Maya (who's straight) is into the idea and they'll let him watch while they have sex in revenge to toy with Finch. They then fake a break up to dash his hopes.
- In the ending of another episode, Maya confronts a colleague about using flirtatious behavior to get her way around the office. The other woman then uses these same tricks on Maya, who starts getting into it. The other woman then walks away, having won the argument. After they're both gone, Dennis emerges from behind a desk, having listened to the interplay.
Dennis: (talking to God) You do love me, don't you?
- In "It's Raining Babies" Finch tries to trick Nina and Vicki into kissing, to their annoyance (the two prank him in revenge).
- Referenced in Kyle XY:
Jessi: I can do anything Kyle can do.
Josh: Can you make out with Amanda? Cause that would be hot.
- Exploited in The L Word, usually to show the hypocrisy of homophobic straight men. For instance a manager sees two of his female staff making out and immediately indulges in A Date with Rosie Palms. It's later mentioned that he fired the two after "catching" them at it.
- Averted in Season 1, when Tim catches his fiancee Jenny with Marina.
- No matter what, the show has been frequently accused of exploiting this to gain a male fanbase, which the writers and execs always defended themselves of, despite the fact it did garner a large male demographic who only watch the sex scenes.
- Leverage: In "The First David Job", Parker and Hardison stage a Fake-Out Make-Out while Sophie hides. Nate and Eliot hear the sounds of the make-out session over their earpieces. When Sophie returns, Eliot eagerly asks her which one of them Parker was making out with.
- Lucifer. In "Save Lucifer", Maze and Eve have an accountant Bound and Gagged in his own office, and they start making out in front of him because Eve is hoping to make Lucifer jealous. Sure enough Lucifer turns up in the middle of events.
Accountant: (after being ungagged) Thank you! These two maniacs barged in here and tied me up!Lucifer: Yes, I can see you've had a most unpleasant time so far.Accountant: (beat) Well, it wasn't all bad...
- Invoked in a very creepy way on Mad Men. Roger and Don are at the office with a pair of young models. Roger asks one to kiss the other. They're sisters. And sisters should be friendly.
- Parodied in a MADtv spoof of Brokeback Mountain which inverted the genders by making it a secret relationship between two cowgirls. Rather than facing hostility and ostracism, the women's husbands encourage the affair and even get their buddies together to watch.
- The Man Show loved this trope, and had a couple of skits showing as much.
- Camcorders for Lesbians, a fake charity dedicated to sending donated camcorders to lesbian couples so they can record themselves.
- Jimmy once went out on the street to find women who would make out on camera for twenty dollars. He found several.
- This is the basis of a couple of sketches on Man Stroke Woman. In each, a guy does something to which the two women in the sketch respond "How can we thank you?", and the guy suggests that they make out.
- Averted in Midsomer Murders, at least in the episodes with Troy, a homophobe. Of course, since the women involved are rarely of the Lipstick Lesbian type...
- Modern Family: At one point, Haley gets a job promoting clubs on social media. She and her fellow promoters mention pretending kiss each other in order to attract male club-goers.
- From Mr. Sunshine, Ben's assistant sets him up with her sister. No one on this show is balanced, so it doesn't end well. The sisters start fighting.
Ben: I'm gonna go.
Heather: I should slap you.
Stephanie: I should slap you.
Ben: I'm gonna stay.
- Mystery Science Theater 3000:
- The robots' fondness for female wrestling and/or lesbian scenes was a running joke in the series.
- The B-movie Racket Girls, about female wrestling, is built on this trope, and riffed mercilessly by the guys.
- The characters theorize that the Catfight scene in Manos: The Hands of Fate is the only reason the film is allowed to exist.
- Mike and the Bots get excited when two women get into bed together in The Thing That Couldn't Die.
- In an episode, two women who were both engaged to the same (dead) man get into a fight. Gibbs goes to break it up. Tony calls out about it. McGee videos it on his cell phone. Abby watches the fight later and enjoys it.
- Tony's a large one himself — Ziva's "I'm bisexual" insinuations are probably for his benefit/confusion. Definitely, as shown by his suggestion that Ziva and Abby make up for their slapfest with "a deep tongue kiss". Instead both women simultaneously punch Tony in the chest.
- Kate Todd brings up the Fridge Logic of this trope, and I quote (or paraphrase): "Why are men interested in women that, by definition, are not interested in them"? This trope is played straight when Tony does not seem to care about that. Which makes sense, given what starts this conversation is discussing a case where a man's wife was having an affair with a woman and Tony stating he wouldn't mind if his (hypothetical) wife did it.
- In the episode of The Office where Michael accidentally outs Oscar, Michael and Dwight become interesting in learning whether any other staff members are homosexual. Michael proposes that Angela might be a lesbian, which Dwight (who is secretly having an affair with Angela) disputes. Michael comments, "Imagine Angela with another woman", which Dwight does, with a smirk.
- On My Block: When Monse mentions that she and Olivia have "girl stuff" to do after school, Cesar jokingly asks if he can watch. Later, when kids are playing "Marry, Make Love, Kill" and Olivia says she'd make love to Monse, Ruby is unabashedly aroused.
- Orange Is the New Black: In season 1 Pornstache looks quite excited when he sees Alex and Piper dancing provocatively together.
- The Outer Limits (1995): Girl On Girl Is Hot:
- In "Caught In the Act", a sleazy detective taunts the male protagonist and says his girlfriend is a slut (she's been infected with an alien parasite which sucks out people's lifeforce through sex). He angrily retorts that she would never cheat on him. The detective goes, "Oh yeah? According to her roommate, she goes both ways!" The boyfriend says eagerly, "Really?"
- In "Ripper", Dr. Jack York, who is high on absinthe and opium, is transfixed by the sight of Polly Nichols and Annie Chapman making out until an Energy Being leaves the former's body, killing her in the process, and takes possession of the latter.
- Subverted in Peep Show: Jez finds out the girl he's dating, Elena, is bisexual and in a lesbian relationship. At first, he thinks it hot. But then he starts to grow jealous, especially since she seems more committed to her relationship with the other woman than theirs. Elena even agrees to her marriage proposal. He gets so jealous that at one point, he worries that he might have subconsciously tried to murder the other woman.
- In Red Dwarf, episode "Parallel Universe", the guys travel into a parallel universe where women are the dominant gender. Apparently, they also find man-on-man videos arousing.
- Betty and Veronica try to invoke this in the Riverdale pilot in order to get on the cheerleading squad. Cheryl scoffs, says lesbian kissing isn't a big deal anymore, and tells them they need to do something more impressive to get on the team.
- Saturday Night Live:
- In one sketch, a group of fratbros use a magical wish to see a pair of lesbian lovers getting it on... and are treated to a pair of Butch Lesbians.
- Another sketch had a lesbian variant of this, where two lesbians go to Themyscira because the idea of an all-female society of literal Amazons sounded like a dream come true... only to be disappointed at how chaste it is even despite all the Homoerotic Subtext. One of them compares it to a porno where the plumber really is there just to fix the pipes.
- In one episode where Elliot and Carla are having a spat, every time they start to argue Dr. Kelso sticks his head around the corner and meow, eventually complaining to Ted that "Dammit Ted, I wanted a Catfight!"
- Todd in almost every appearance. In one instance:
Elliot: No, Todd, I won't date you. And I don't want you to think that it's because I just broke up with someone or that I want to preserve our friendship or that I'm a lesbian. It's because I find you so creepy that I think you should have to have a bell around your neck.Todd: All I heard was "lesbian".
- Also subverted in one episode in which JD has the same fantasy every time he sees two women he's slept with talking - Rerun from What's Happening! teaching them both to dance. Apparently, this is also his ideal bachelor party.
- In another episode J.D. imagines what it's like in Turk's head, which involves Carla and sexy female psychiatrist Molly Clock making out. When Molly points out that Carla isn't a lesbian, Carla just sighs and says: "I am in here." Molly takes a moment to contemplate this, comes to a realization, and says "Me, too".
- Molly once mentioned having had a threesome, to which JD responded with the question "Was it two girls and a guy, or was it a Devil's Threesome?". When she answers "All girl", the men have a predictable reaction.
- In the Season 8 finale, Carla and Elliot decide to imitate Turk and JD and embrace, much to their astonishment. The two guys then coach the girls to try to get them even more intimate ("I usually cup the buttocks"). They finally draw the line at "Our crotches are usually closer together".
- Molly was advising Elliot about what to say to an upcoming presentation and says "If it doesn't work, we'll just make out." Cue Todd bursting into the room, having clearly just come running out on a surgery, to watch.
- In the second episode of the series, My Best Friend's Mistake, JD fantasizes about a progressive future with Elliot, one that involved a three-way.
- One episode saw Elliot give a pelvic exam to a plain looking woman, accidentally giving her an orgasm. JD recalls the incident differently, namely that the patient looks like a buxom supermodel that wanted an intimate moment with Dr. Reid.
- In "My Way Home," JD and Turk discuss their plans to meet up "by the milkshake stand on the lesbian cloud" in the afterlife.
- Hilarious subversion in Skins, where JJ completely fails to realise that he's just lived through every man's fantasy. (The two girls are for certain values of the word, at the time a couple.)
JJ: Bit cramped in there. Me, two girls and one tent. Nightmare. You girls like to wriggle, don't you? Anyway, I need a wee and a Tic Tac.
- And played straight earlier; he also got to watch when the same two girls got high on spiked chocolate brownies at a pyjama party and made out a lot (this was before they became anything resembling a couple).
JJ: Oh my giddy, giddy, giddy... aunt.
- And played straight earlier; he also got to watch when the same two girls got high on spiked chocolate brownies at a pyjama party and made out a lot (this was before they became anything resembling a couple).
- Possibly a reason that Irene Adler was revealed to be a lesbian in Sherlock. Throughout the episode "A Scandal in Belgravia", the only person she is shown to be sexually interested in (outside of her work, of course) is the eponymous detective. Played for laughs when Mycroft explains, while John drinks tea, that Adler has compromising photos of herself with a young, royal, female person:
Sherlock: And I assume in a number of compromising scenarios.
Mycroft: An imaginative range, we are assured.
Sherlock: John, you might want to put that cup back in its saucer now.
- Subverted in Sherman Oaks. When Billy finds out that his hot girlfriend wants to have sex with his hot maid, he immediately kicks her out of the house.
- Discussed in Smack the Pony, in a sketch involving two (attractive but apparently rather sheltered and naive) lesbians recording a dating video shyly asking if any men might be interested in watching them have sex or in joining in with them having sex... only to sadly turn to each other and conclude that they don't think anyone's going to be interested.
- Played for laughs in a daydream sequence in Stargate SG-1 in the episode "Avenger 2.0". Carter and another female scientist get into a Catfight over the daydreaming character but, as he moves to break them apart, O'Neill stops him so that he can keep watching the fight.
- The Star Trek: Voyager episode, "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy", involves The Doctor daydreaming that Seven of Nine, B'elanna Torres, and Kathryn Janeaway are all catfighting over him.
- Sugar Rush:
- The title character uses this to get attention from men. Clubbing with Kim, a lesbian with a crush on her, she is asked by a man if they're lesbians. She replies that they are and kisses Kim, who then goes to get drinks for them, thinking they are now a couple. However, when she returns, Sugar is with the man.
- In an earlier episode, Sugar enters a relationship with a Frenchman who cannot speak English. Likewise, she can't speak French and uses Kim as a translator. When he is leaves on a bus, Sugar asks Kim what the last thing he said was. Kim lies and says that he always wanted to see two girls kiss; Sugar obliges.
- In the That '70s Show episode "The Kids Are Alright", Donna and Hyde's Girl of the Week, Raquel are sitting next to each other and talking:
Raquel: I mean, just because I don't wear dresses... And, I know how to fix a car, doesn't mean I don't like to be told I'm pretty.
Donna: Wow, it's like I'm reading my own journal. I think you're pretty. I think you're really pretty.
Raquel: I think you're pretty. [touches Donna's shoulder]
Donna: [giggles] Stop!
Eric: [to Hyde] Is this really happening?
Hyde: Shh! You'll break the spell!
- And then there's the reaction of Torchwood's Owen Harper to seeing two women kissing in "Day One" - "Happy birthday me!" It also caught the attention of the very female (and bisexual) Tosh.
- Looking at his cover art, Ken Ashcorp believes so◊.
- In "Queer for Cat" by Big Rude Jake the singer is delighted when he arrives home at 3 a.m. to discover his girlfriend making out with the girl of his dreams.
- On the "Words of Wisdom" track from blink-182's The Mark, Tom, and Travis Show live album—the track is mostly a collection of between-song jokes from different concerts — is the following (typically crude) exchange:
Tom: Hey, how many of you guys have girlfriends and how many of you girlfriends have guy friends?
* the crowd cheers*
Mark: And more importantly, how many of you girlfriends have girlfriends?
* the crowd cheers louder*
Tom: Because we believe in the love that exists between two vaginas!
Mark: The most special kind of love of all is the love that exists between two naked women while I watch!
- In "Both Ways", the male singer loves that his bisexual girlfriend regularly makes out with other women for his viewing pleasure.
- The first verse in CupcakKe's "Crayons" critiques that lesbians are often over-sexualized while gay men are gagged at.
Girl-on-girl, they're like "yup"But when it's man-on-man, they're like "yuck"Motherfuckers need to be gone with that shitBitch, we ain't playing along; ain't no skits
- In "I Didn't Just Kiss Her" by Jen Foster, the woman the protagonist is singing about insists that she's straight and only kissed her for male attention. She, however, seems too experienced in kissing and having sex with women to not have done them before.
- Gleefully exploited on the Kevin Bishop Show by Karen Gillan spoofing Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl":
"This is exactly as I planned, to give minor erections.
I got a hit by flaunting this — full lesbianism.
It is not what I usually do, I just wanted Number One.
I'll be bi-curious for you, pretend girlie titillation.
I kissed a girl just to have a hit, and you lot all bloody fell for it.
I sing about girls and you'll buy it, cause it looks like I'm well up for it.
It's not that new, it's just that you like to think about it.
So I'll kiss a girl, just to sell this and you bloody fools will buy it!"
- The "I'm a Lesbian Too! skit" from lesbian rapper God-Des's album Reality features a drunken, male Straw Fan talking about how great lesbians are.
- Two-thirds of "Surf City" by Jan and Dean are about two bisexual girl and one guy threesomes.
- "Girl Crush" by Little Big Town:
"I wanna taste her lips, yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I wanna drown myself in her perfume
I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch
Yeah 'cause maybe then you'd want me just as much
I got a girl crush, I got a girl crush"
- The MC Frontalot song, "I Heart Fags" requests that everyone be as tolerant toward homosexual relationships as Frontalot himself is. After all, the song points out, "you already think dykes are hot."
- Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl", of course, is all about this. (As opposed to the earlier — thirteen years, to be exact — identically-titled Jill Sobule song, in which the kiss is a result of a relationship between the kissers.)
- Deconstructed in the music video of The Pretty Reckless's Fucked Up World, which is a Protest Song about the commercial explotation of this trope. At one point, two "naked" (they're actually wearing skintone bodysuits) start making out on a huge pile of money, then look at the camera and hold up signs that say "Is this what you want?"
- The live version of Reel Big Fish's song, "She Has a Girlfriend Now" ends with, "My girlfriend left me for another girl, and it can happen to you too if you follow your hopes and dreams!
Scott Klopfenstein: Don't quit believing!
- Type O Negative has the "controversial" song "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend". Which may have been controversial in 1996, but seems pretty straightforward now. Given the band's sense of humor (and the actual controversies stemming from previous releases), it's likely they didn't consider it controversial.
- Justified in Kakos Industries episode 25. After Hailey Solomonari joins Melantha's company, Corin tries to ignore it seeing how he's had sex twice with the former and hates/lusts after the latter in a complicated relationship. That is until they interrupt his broadcast like two teenagers at a sleepover just so Melantha can rub it in.
Corin: is that all? Can I go now?
Melantha: Of course that's not all!
Hailey: Corin, I'm naked! WOOOOOOOOOO!
Melantha: That's entirely her choice! I'm not making her do anything!
Hailey: It's a new thing I've been trying! Melantha is super supportive of all of my decisions.
Corin: Please, can we not do this right now?
Melantha: There's more! I wanted to tell you that Hailey and I have now done things together. In a sexual fashion.
Corin: You mean you had sex?
Melantha: Oh yes, we did that, and we did some other things. And we did some other things still, and those things were really, really good.
Hailey: Oh my Evil, so good!
Melantha: I think we've done just about everything there is to do, really. You know, all the sexy things. Naughty things. Physical things. The kind where we touch. Erotically.
Hailey: Almost everything. We haven't done—
- During the first few months of Eric Bischoff's run in the WWE, he seemed to enjoy booking a lot of "HLA" matches, much to Jerry Lawler's enjoyment. The crowd got into it too, chanting "HLA! HLA!" whenever the matches were booked. The meaning of HLA wasn't stated too much on the show, but it obviously stands for Hot Lesbian Action.
- A bit of history for the HLA thing. It started as nothing short of a ratings stunt, where the WWE promised they would have live "hot lesbian action" on TV, and even instructed color commentator Jerry Lawler to mention it constantly. As in, right before every commercial break. They finally brought the lesbians out. They hugged, kissed, and then came the Bait-and-Switch. Eric Bischoff said they weren't entertaining enough and had his goons Three Minute Warning come out and beat the girls up. Utterly ridiculous. Even worse, one of the girls was legitimately injured by Jamal, who was as rough with the girls as he was the usual male opponents who outweighed the girls by 150 pounds or so.
- At one point, Bischoff tried to convince Vince McMahon not to fire him by attempting to ply him with "bisexual lesbians". "HLA" would be brought up on occasion, usually with matches or in-ring promos involving the highly attractive Divas, the stated goal being to arouse the male audience.
- There was an angle around 2003 which, for reasons not relevant to the trope, Dawn Marie had forced Torrie Wilson to go to a hotel room with her. They kissed and we got a fade to black. What makes this a valid example of this trope is that according to Torrie, when they were filming it, most of the roster crowded around the set to watch.
- Alexis Laree had come to Ring of Honor because it was an extra-serious promotion and she was ready to get away from this sort of thing. Unfortunately for her, ROH had a working relationship with JAPW and soon enough, Allison Danger of the exotico "Christopher Street Connection" had set her sights on Laree and was uninterested in Laree not sharing her attraction. It should be noted though, the men in the connection (Mace and Buff E) got pops for kissing other men just as Danger did Laree.
- Invoked at JAPW Wild Card 6, March 20, 2010. The Osirian Portal teamed with Annie Social in a loss to Mia Yim and The South Side Playaz Club. The Portal used their hypnosis to get the SSPC's valets to kiss.
- Exploited by Seleziya Sparx during the unauthorized ROH A Night Of Hoopla during the "pants off dance off" competition, where Scarlett Bordeaux and Valerie Malone competed to impress the judge but Sparx invaded the space of a woman in the audience. It didn't work, as the as crowd overwhelmingly favored Malone, but Sparx did manage to avoid getting booed like Bordeaux...and then really averted when Davey Richards, believing he had to defend the promotion's dignity, showed all three of them up.
- The crowd constantly chants "Kiss! Kiss!" whenever Madison Rayne and Brittany interact.
- Subverted during one (staged) instance at an Atlanta Hawks game, where the cameraman positioned the kiss cam on two very attractive women who were sitting next to each other, and (at their husbands' encouragement) leaned in to kiss only for two (planted) guys sitting in front of them to stand up at that very moment and block the kiss from the camera's view.
- At least one Fox Sports Ohio cameraman at a baseball game got in trouble for aiming the camera at two completely unrelated women making out.
- Twilight Sparkle's Secret Shipfic Folder has the card "Shining Armor Approves Of This Experiment." Oddly enough, it's a goal card, and since the whole game is supposedly Twilight writing fanfics...
- Can be played straight or subverted in Crusader Kings.
- Christian Lords who marry a lesbian woman might get an event where she's discovered to be having an affair with another woman, and one of the possible options is to be okay with this.
- Meanwhile, Muslim Lords who marry at least two lesbian women at once might get an event where they're both sleeping with each other, and one of the possible options is to join in.
- On a meta level, many players actively seek out lesbian women to marry when playing as male rulers. The reason is that other men with the seduction trait can't target them, so there's no question of parentage.
- Dragon Age II: Gamlen's reaction to your romance with Isabela as a female Hawke is to ask for details, which comes off as more than a little creepy considering you're his niece.
- Dragon Age: Origins:
- Oghren most definitely believes this. If questioned about how he felt about his wife Branka and her lover Hespith, he'll initially be disgruntled but eventually state he'll be in his tent. If a female Warden sleeps with a female "worker" at the Pearl brothel while he's in the party, his approval will go up more than with any other pairing. He'll also interrupt, saying he had the "wrong room". And if you invite Leliana to an all-girl threesome with Isabela, Oghren will faint.
- If the Warden is female and romantically interested in both Alistair and Leliana, the former will comment that his beloved's relationship with the latter is 'hot', even as he insists that she choose between the two of them. He also points out that 'most other guys would think he was crazy' for insisting on it. Meanwhile, if you've "hardened" (ahem) Alistair, you can invite Alistair to join you when you have a chance to bed Isabela. Whereas he doesn't like the idea of you in a long-term relationship with another woman, given the chance to participate in a one-off, he says "I am a weak, weak man". If Leliana joins instead, he will wonder aloud if he's dreaming.
- In Leliana's Song DLC, the male party members Tug and Sketch look very interested whenever Marjolaine starts hitting on Leliana.
- When the Templar guarding the ferry to the Circle of Magi expresses interest in her, Leliana awkwardly turns him down by claiming to be a "poetess". She ends up turning it to the party's advantage.
Carroll: I've never met a poetess... The other men sometimes tell stories about them... when the Knight-Commander isn't around, of course... he doesn't abide that sort of talk.
Leliana: Pah. The stories sheltered templars tell will pale in comparison to mine. Would you like to hear my tales of debauchery and excess?
Carroll: Yes!... Please...?
Leliana: I'm sure we could talk on that long, dull boat ride across the lake, yes?
- A side quest in Fable III has your hero getting pulled into a tabletop game by some RPG geeks/amateur wizards who task you with rescuing a princess from an evil baron. After you defeat the baron, the princess offers you a kiss, and the geeks will be especially enthusiastic about this if your hero is female.
"Two girls kissing, isn't that kind of a cliché?"
"An incredibly hot cliché."
- In Fallout 2, the PC can meet a family consisting of a father and his two adult children, a son and daughter. The PC, regardless of sex, can sleep with either the son or the daughter, leading to a shotgun wedding. However, if a female PC sleeps with the man's daughter, he admits to being a little turned on by catching two women in bed despite one of them being his kin.
Miria's Father: I can't say I'm not just a little turned on by this, but I can't have her living in this house now that I've seen it.
- When the Player Character in Fallout 3 reaches Girdershade, the only two inhabitants are Sierra, a Nuka Colachugging woman, and Ronald, the man who desperately wants to sleep with her. Ronald will confront you after you leave Sierra's house, and female PCs with the "Black Widow" perk can drop some hints that if Ronald helps you with Sierra's quest, he can bed the both of you. This causes Ronald to abandon all reason and charge headlong across the Wasteland to his death.
- Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix: Hana and Rain use this trope to sneak into the upper floors of the Wing Chun Tower. This scene, along with the ads at the time, made the game rather infamous.
- Fire Emblem Fates has Soleil when she's not the one hoping to be on a receiving end, contrasting her Spear Counterpart Nina.
- Mass Effect:
- In Mass Effect 2, if you complete both Jack and Miranda's loyalty quests, they will have a potentially violent confrontation. When recommending you go down to do something about it, Joker's parting comment is "Take pictures!"
- In the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC, at the start of the reconciliation scene with Liara, she mentions seeing Joker. If you are playing a female Shepard, she goes on to say that Joker asked if the two of you would be reenacting scenes from Vaenia (an in-universe vid starring some glamorous asari, implied to be porn or at least the equivalent of R-rated).
- Continuing the Jack/Miranda "animosity", the Citadel DLC of Mass Effect 3 has Shepard suggesting that they're just frustrated over sexual tension and should just kiss already. Kasumi offers to record it for an eagerly-waiting market.
- Played with in Medieval II: Total War. On the one hand, a Princess who picks up the "Potentially Confused" trait will receive a bonus to Charm, making her more likely to convince other nations' family members to marry her and join your faction. On the other hand, if that trait develops into "Prefers Women," the Princess will have penalties to both Charm and the odds she'll bear children.
- In Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Cécile gets kidnapped by an out-and-proud lesbian who gives her personal sponge baths every day. When she gets rescued, she teases Snake about this, mistaking his interest in her well-being for this trope. "Would you like to hear about all the horrible things she did to me~?"
- Prince Gaston of The Confines of the Crown is all too enthusiastic about getting Madeleine and his maid Colette into bed together, and makes it clear that he'd love to watch.
- Deconstructed in Deiz. In one ending your character is witnessing one girl raping another, and doesn't do anything because it's hot.
- Katawa Shoujo:
Hisao: So what did she and Rin do that got her ill?
- In Emi's route, Emi ends up giving Rin her cold. Hisao wonders whether he'll get it as well, given that he and Emi were pretty close yesterday, including having a pillow fight and her sleeping on him. Which makes him wonder...
Hisao: Steady on, old lad. Don't go down that road.
- In the beta version, Hisao has a few moments where he thinks that Lily and Hanako might be more than just friends. This perks his interest.
- Kevin from Anime News Nina was revealed to be one.
- Books Don't Work Here. When Robin is pimping out her roommate on the page called the benefit of having friends Sparky asked whether her girlfriend is a girl and a friend or a girl on girl friend.
- Bronze Skin Inc: In chapter 3, Dante has to keep from getting aroused at work or he'll be fired. Unfortunately, the customers that day are two giantesses who won't stop making out with each other.
- The One Guy in Crossroads of Booger County turns out to be a Yuri Fan; since the other four main characters are a lesbian, a Transparent Closet case, a proclaimed straight woman who spent much of college in a lesbian relationship, and his murdered girlfriend, this has some ramifications.
- Turns up in the Death Note fancomics by Silent Reaper, where Takada and Misa get into a catfight.
- This Dinosaur Comics. T-Rex re a lesbian wedding: "We'll get to see them KISS!"
- El Goonish Shive:
- Played with in the non-continuity story "Goonmanji". And subverted rather hilariously, as well.
- Teen Genius Tedd is more or less the incarnation of this trope... except, apparently, when one of the girls involved happens to be his own cousin. The Westermark Effect is a cruel, cruel mistress, although there is a fan theory that Tedd is simply in denial about finding his own cousin attractive, hence the unconvincingly exaggerated response.
- When Duck, one of the comic shop regulars, learns that Nanase and Ellen are in a relationship, he immediately reports this to his friends:
Duck: You know how we all dreamed of dating Nanase someday? That dream is dead, but something magical has taken its place.
- In Ensign Sue Must Die, Empress Sue tries to show off how evil she is... by making out with Uhura. Kirk declares that he likes this Sue better. Two sequels later, Chekov concurs:
Chekov: [with hearts in his eyes] That vas the best thing I've ever seen.
- This popped up in General Protection Fault when Sharon and Ki got in a Catfight due to a conflict of authority. As Trent put it "Don't let them stop - I'll go get a pair of bikinis and some Jell-O!" For added visual gag value, he shows up carrying Jell-O and bikinis right after they've stopped...
- Reynardine from Gunnerkrigg Court asks if the two female leads are about to kiss after a tender make-up because he "would be interested in watching". In his case, it's notable because he's a demon (well, sort of - it's complicated) and the girls in question are about twelve, although he may have said it just to get a rise out of them, but the fact that it's later revealed he's sort of in love with one of them may mean he said it out of a jealousy.
- And when Kat reveals that she's in a relationship with Paz, Reynardine takes a few seconds to process this before opening his mouth with a stupid grin on his face. She stomps on him before he can say something stupid.
- One possible explanation for the (fictional) publisher of Jet Dream being open to implied lesbianism while eschewing depictions of male homosexuality (even if the males look just like cute girls.)
- Last Res0rt had Addy forcefully kissing Jigsaw out of the clear blue on one page, and you can practically hear Jason Squee!. Slick and White Noise are also visible in the background but are more shocked than anything else.
- Johnny Danger comments on the lightsaber duel between the gruff and cynical Dr. Belinda Reines and Darth Tiffany in Legostar Galactica by wanting to get Jello involved, or at least have them get down and dirty in the mud of Dagobah. His crewmates tell him that it's not that kind of catfight.
- Loserz features this at one point, with Jodie and Alice getting into a brawl over Eric (specifically, Alice (Eric's girlfriend) didn't trust Jodie (Eric's best female friend) one bit) while at the movies. Before Eric breaks the fight up, this trope is in full play, including a couple of movie theater workers grabbing some popcorn.
- And then when Jodie confesses to Ben that she's had sex with Jesse, his response is that he doesn't know whether to get really angry or go jerk off for about five hours.
- There is also this strip, where Jodie plans to purposely invoke this trope.
- This trope is the basis for quite a bit of Fanservice in Ménage à 3, and is also effectively invoked in-setting by some of the characters from time to time (as, for example, when Zii shows Gary a video to prove that she once made out with Amber, and Gary asks enthusiastically for more proof). However, it should be noted that a lot of stuff is considered hot in this setting; it's a broad-minded comic with a good-looking cast.
- This Misfile strip. Cassiel and Jenny Jr. get into a fight, and a security guard thinks it's hot.
- Very prevalent in La Mouette Noire. Mara, the main character, has many such encounters.
- Averted in this Mountain Time, as the lesbians shown are as boring as any other couple.
- This page from Mystic Revolution.
- Duncan in Niels is at one point determined to set up Natalie (his wife) with another woman.
- 9th Elsewhere: Note that this takes place during a non-storyline, joke strip.
Carmen: Besides, thanks to all the wonderful boys I've met in my short but ostentatiously miserable lifetime, I play for a different team now. If you know what I mean.
Eiji: Well, there's my happy thought for the day!
- The Order of the Stick:
- In "Blame the Hormones", Belkar sees Roy (who has been transformed into a woman) hug Haley, and asks for a repeat so he can "capture the mental image for later".
- Played with in "Double Your Entendre, Double Your Fun"; even if we don't know if V is a female, the guys are sure s/he and Haley are talking about their respective set of tits, comparing them and going so far as touching them. And most of them are quite interested.
- Also much later, Elan has to make out with a female villain in order to escape, and he promises that Haley can do the same with any recurring villain she likes later to get even. That particular strip's title is "We Recommend Tsukiko".
- Penny Arcade:
- Parodied in Planet Zebeth when Kraid witnesses a deathmatch between two Samii. A moment later, the pair mysteriously find a swimming pool full of mud and decide to chuck the whole deathmatch thing. It's all a daydream, of course, as a nearby minion rudely informs him.
"I don't know... but being in here makes me want to wrestle rather than just blast you..."
"No... I just want to make out with you instead."
"Yes! Let's make out!"
- Brent from PvP. When Jade's sister Miranda appears, Brent assumes she is someone Jade has found/hired to fulfill his fantasy of watching Jade get it on with another woman.
- In RPG World, one of Diane's abilities was a Kiss that acted as a weak heal spell. Cue a boss fight where Cherry nearly gets killed and Hero tells Diane to Kiss Cherry to heal her (Cherry and Diane don't even like each other at this point). Eikre loves every second of it, even though Diane and Cherry are both grimacing and it's the most reluctant kiss ever.
- In Sexy Losers, when Mr. Shibata's wife starts an affair with an 18-year-old girl, his response is to install video cameras in her bedroom.
- Robin of Shortpacked! has used the tactic of making out with another woman for public display as a means to some elaborate end (this, of course, before she entered seriously into a relationship with a lesbian).
- The subject of a running gag, with its two succubi that Devil uses to try and seduce Slick to (further?) evil with their girl-on-girl shenanigans. (One of them — Fuschia — has since fallen in mushy love with Criminy after being purified by Jesus and imperfectly restored to evil by Devil.)
- This page where Slick witnesses Monique hitting on a girl.
- In Skin Horse, the 70s-styled robot Sweetdaddy Jupiter Velvet learns that his ex, the Water Cooler is seeing someone else and says "that brings a bot low". When he learns the cat ain't a dude, he adds "Picturing this elevates the bot slightly".
- In a guest strip in Sluggy Freelance, Zoë and Gwynn cajole Torg and Riff into cleaning the house by promising that they're going to kiss once it's clean.
- Averted when Lisa and Monette's relationship hits a rough patch and Lisa gets angsty about it at work. When she leaves to talk to Monette, one of her coworkers, an older man, remarks, "Just when I finally concoct the perfect lesbian fantasy about those two, they go and spoil it all by being people."
- One comic shows that God likes Him some girl-on-girl. The only reason He even said homosexuality was a sin was to Batman Gambit lesbians into having more sex just to spite Him.
Angel: Uh, God? I think two lesbians are having sex down there, hoping you'll watch.
God: This whole "homosexuality angers God" business gets me more awesome private shows than anything else I've tried. What hair color they got?
Angel: Both are redheads, sir.
God: Mmmmm... Jehovah like.
- In The Space Between, Frank most definitely agrees, as evidenced in this strip. By Word of God, the pale color is all the blood in his body heading south.
- While a medical student is treating Spinnerette's injuries, Sahira tells him that she shared an upside-down kiss with the new superheroine. This (along with her ample assets) was a way to keep him from getting too nosy.
- When a teenage boy who used his powers to invade Spinnerette's dreams without her consent learns that she's in a relationship with Mecha Maid, he responds with excitement. Spinnerette responds to this by slapping him repeatedly and shouting, "I'm not gay for your amusement!"
- Sarah Nicole, upon seeing Spinnerette and Mecha Maid get into a fight that involves a lot of wrestling and spilled oil, frantically crams the pies that she's been eating to "cure" her lesbianism into her mouth and chants, "You don't like girls. You don't like girls. You don't like girls."
- Vampire Cheerleaders: During the "Adventures in Space... and Time?!" arc, Zoe becomes so emotional after reuniting with Suki, that she lays one on her. Then tackles her to the ground and starts humping her leg in front of everyone at Lita World. All the male attendees start cheering and snapping cellphone pictures of it, despite Suki's protests.
- According to this, lesbians are one of two exceptions to people not liking public displays of affection (the other being old people).
- Pointed out more than once by Phase of the Whateley Universe. He's commented on this when he goes to talk to Zenith and finds Zenith 'busy' with Sahar. He's brought it up when Fey is necking with Bugs, and when Chaka is hanging with Riptide. He dislikes it when people bring it up by talking about him and Vox, however, because while he looks like a hot brunette, he's decidedly male between the ears (and elsewhere).
- Averted in Chip Cheezum's Retsupurae video "Yowie wowie!!!" Most of the video consists of two girls kissing, but they're dressed up as Naruto and Sasuke acting out a Slash Fic.
- The Cinema Snob expressed a little disappointment that parts of the Messalina/Agrippina sex scene were cut in Caligula II: Messalina, Messalina. He notes that it's usually out of character for him to complain about a movie he hates being shorter than it could have been, but come on, two chicks were having sex!
- In the video "Lesbian Mountain". Why yes, it is a parody of Brokeback Mountain, of course. Two cowgirls find love with each other and face prejudice because... actually, they don't. Everyone thinks it's the hottest thing ever.
- In the "Realistic Sobriety Tests" video, one of the non-standard tests is to introduce a 20-something female drunk driver to "Lisa, an art major with a very open attitude to her sexuality". When they then drunkenly start making out, both of the cops and even the guy who was hit by the car (still lying on the ground with broken bones and covered in his own blood) try to catch a glimpse.
- Parodied in "The Hottest Lesbian Kiss Ever": three guys see a pair of lesbians and get excited about their powerful emotional connection.
- Diamanda Hagan (herself a lesbian, so she at least has justification) has been known to kill when lesbian teasing isn't followed through.
- The Honest Trailers video for Maleficent has the narrator's Alternate Aesop Interpretation of the movie:
Narrator: If your movie comes after Frozen, true love only exists between two girls. [beat] Aw...yeah.
- In "An Intervention for MySpace", everyone goes nuts when TMZ and The Superficial start making out.
- Moviebob goes further than just finding girl-on-girl action hot, and suggests that Girls' Love "from a story perspective makes for great improvement in terms of dramatic relatability" and that Titanic (1997) might have been improved by swapping out Leonardo DiCaprio for Gina Gershon "and not just visually". It seems he even thought that lesbianism renders men obsolete:
I figured that was the end of the line as far as my prospective future with the opposite sex was concerned... If they can be "with" each other now (yes, "now", as far as a sixth grader knew this was a brand new invention) what the hell will they want with us? As if I needed to be more insecure. To this day, I don't really grasp why any woman sleeps with any man, period.
- That Guy with the Glasses:
- The Nostalgia Critic always voices very enthusiastic approval whenever he sees a hint of Les Yay in the movies/shows he reviews, although he's also nice enough to put a few Yaoi Fanboy moments in there too.
- During the TGWTG Year One Brawl, Spoony and Sage conspire to get The Nostalgia Chick and That Girl with the Goggles to fight, while they take pictures with their phones. There was going to be a reciprocation of Spoony and Sage having a girlish pillow fight, but they only had time for one take, and it was ruined by everyone cracking up at their eerily accurate performances.
- Torn to pieces, alongside Bait-and-Switch Lesbians, on the webshow That's Gay.
Brian: A straight girl kissing women is what's really exciting, let's face it — Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" went number one for a reason. Because nobody wants to hear a full-time resident of vag-town sing this:
Woman with acoustic guitar: I kissed a girl and I liked it/Makes sense cause I'm a lesbian/ I kissed a girl and I liked it/Makes sense cause I like to kiss girls...
[men in background walk away disgusted]
- In an episode of American Dad!, when they are discussing bullying, Francine tells Stan about a time she got bullied at school: in the locker room during a shower that involved the bullies rubbing her so hard with soap and such, they left red marks. Then it cuts to a shot of Stan sitting with his jacket on his lap.
- You'd be forgiven for looking at early promotional material of Drawn Together and thinking that the show is entirely about Foxxy Love french-kissing Princess Clara. In-universe, their kiss was popular enough to get an audiobook read by Droopy Dog.
- In the first episode of the Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show, responding to an "anything we can do" query, Cleveland asks if Lois and Bonnie can make out—they do, to the shocked enjoyment of the men.
- Family Guy:
- Quagmire, Peter, and every straight male in Quahog are obviously big fans of this. This trope was parodied in a beer commercial that Lois was watching which had two bikini babes drinking beer and making out. Lois remarks "Oh, that is such a male fantasy! Women drinking beer..."
- A notable example in "One If by Clam, Two If by Sea" is when Peter and company try out a new bar to "act like idiots" in and realizes that they're the only guys there. Quagmire is quick to assume that the 2 girls making out by the disk are "practicing" but Cleveland, being the sharp one in the bunch, points out that "I don't think they're practicing". This reveal is followed by his 3 friends exclaiming "oh" four times in a row, squeezing into that short statement how their minds go through the states of; standing corrected, realizing what was just said, joyfully approving of the information that the statement implicated and, finally, dismay at the fact that the information is of no value to them... Still doesn't stop Quagmire from trying though.
- In "Brian Sings and Swings", Meg pretends to be a lesbian, because that way the lesbian community in her school accepts her. Peter's reaction is "That is awesome!" and Chris and Quagmire try to film her with her girlfriend - despite the fact that she's normally treated as being utterly repulsive.
- "I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar": Peter is sent to Sensitivity Training and comes back as a Straw Feminist. Watching Lois and the sensitivity training instructor have a Cat Fight snaps him out of it.
- "Stew-Roids" with Bonnie asks Lois to put suntan lotion on her back; she removes her bikini top and Lois removes her shirt. A hole in the fence appears, and we realize it's Quagmire and another hole in the fence appears around his groin area.
- Then, there is "Partial Terms of Endearment" where Lois meets her college friend, whom she experimented with. Peter's first reaction is to thank God.
"God. He knows what turns you on!"
- Farnsworth and Bender in the movie Bender's Game like this trope; or at least, their fantasy alter-egos Greyfarn the Wizard and Titanius Anglesmith, Fancy Man of Cornwood are. To clarify, the alter-egos of Leela and Amy, Leegolas the Centaur and Gynecaladriel, the Queen of the Water Nymphos were making out because Leegolas saved Gynecaladriel's life, and Greyfarn and Titanius spared a moment from their task of saving the universe to watch.
- In "Love and Rocket", the Planet Express ship gets a new, female personality and Bender starts to date "her". When Fry tries to wash the ship, Bender shoves him away, but when Amy does it in a bikini, he watches approvingly.
- In the Gargoyles episode "High Noon", Coldstone (or rather, his evil persona, Iago) and Macbeth are watching a wrestling match between Elisa and a (barely clothed) human Demona. The line bellow takes on a double meaning when the Weird Sisters reveal the whole battle was, in fact, a diversion. Takes on a triple meaning when you realize Macbeth can feel everything Demona does.
Coldstone: Well, this is diverting.
Macbeth: You don't know the half of it.
- In Harley Quinn by Season Two when Dr. Psycho openly states girl-on-girl is hot when Harley kisses Poison Ivy to break Psycho's mind control of Ivy. It doesn't wake Ivy, but it does distract Psycho enough for Harley to put a control-blocker in Ivy's ear.
Bane (watching from his own prison the Pit, having guessed earlier about Harley and Ivy's mutual attraction): The tension was palpable!
- Pretty much most of Season Two as the show finally goes into the fan-supported Ho Yay between Harl and Ivy. As revenge for defeating him in front of an unimpressed Darkseid, Psycho broadcasts Ivy's memories of making out with Harley to embarrass Ivy in front of her fiancee Kite-Man. Everybody in Gotham and beyond just sit there gawking, with Batgirl Barbara Gordon and her dad the Commissioner covering each other's eyes, Alfred drawing the curtains of Wayne Manor - and then peeking out to watch anyway - and the rest of Harley's crew waking up and noting that the revelation is going to screw up the team.
- In the Justice League Unlimited episode "Grudge Match" Sonar seems to get a little too much enjoyment from watching Tala and Roulette nearly getting into a fight. This inspires the idea of creating a new Meta-Brawl featuring only female fighters (in this case, Justice League members mind-controlled by through their comm-link earpieces).
- Played with in another episode where the Flash, supposedly a slick ladies man, becomes tongue-tied with Fire, leading Hawkgirl to rib him to tell her how he feels, but his reluctance makes Hawkgirl add why it wouldn't work between him and Fire:
Hawkgirl: You know, she's... [dramatic pause, and Flash's eyes start going wide in anxiety] ...Brazilian!Flash: [annoyed] Ha. Ha.
- Played with in another episode where the Flash, supposedly a slick ladies man, becomes tongue-tied with Fire, leading Hawkgirl to rib him to tell her how he feels, but his reluctance makes Hawkgirl add why it wouldn't work between him and Fire:
- In the Sealab 2021 episode "Splitsville" the Cat Fight the two Debbies and Yumi got in ended with them making out. Everyone at the bar (except Stormy, who got struck blind) watched and cheered them on. And when Debbie Dupree told Sparks and Quinn about it later, Quinn got distracted from the nuclear crisis at hand at the thought of the girls making out.
- The Simpsons:
- In "How the Test Was Won", Homer fantasizes about Marge kissing Lindsey Neagle.
- Subverted in "Viva Ned Flanders", when Homer and Ned accidentally marry floozies in Las Vegas whilst drunk. Homer suggests to Ned the next day that having two wives could have its advantages, and we cut to his fantasy of Marge and the Vegas lady doing the yardwork while Homer lounges on the hammock. Even in the fantasy, Marge says lasciviously "You know Homer, there's so much more that two wives could do for you..." to which he replies "I hear digging, but I don't hear chopping!"
- Averted in "Fear of Flying" where Homer tries to find a new bar. One scene shows him standing in a crowd of women saying, "There's something bothering me about this place... *gasp* This lesbian bar doesn't have a fire exit! Enjoy your death trap, ladies!"
Lesbian: What's her problem?
- Stripperella gives the Kiss of Life to a supermodel who bloats up to enormous size and falls in a swimming pool (It Makes Sense in Context... somewhat) leading one onlooker to state that if the supermodel looked like she did five minutes ago, that scene would look really hot.
- In another episode, Stripperella was a guest in a talk show, where the hostess, Sally Rose, went off-topic and talks about how sexy Stripperella is, describing her attractive features, and hints on wanting to have sex with her. If you noticed, the camera gets closer to the two, apparently hoping for some action.
