Everyone knows someone like him. A guy so hot, so sexy, that even straight guys and lesbian women want him. For the female version of this trope, go to Even the Girls Want Her.


Troper Tales

  • This troper. It seems that guys want me more than girls, much to my chagrin. Hilariously enough, I'm not even remotely a Bishonen, and I'm slightly overweight.
    • You must be this troper's long lost twin.
      • Maybe you're just hugalicious.
    • It's called the teddy-bear-syndrome
      • This troper agrees with the above point. She has several guy friend she refers to as "Squishy" because of this effect.
    • Everybody loves a troper guy. (Except when they don't, but that's nothing I can deal with on my own.) This troper has a male friend who's resolutely bishonen— tall, lean, blond, sunny in personality and quite pretty... who also has a younger brother who's tall, just plain big (not freakishly overmuscled, not soft, just big), stoic, and grim. Previously straight guys seem to really like them both.
    • This female troper has had similar experiences. I only get hit on by straight guys occasionally, but I've been hit on, cat-called and groped by gay/bi women and gay men.
  • Back in college this troper had a friend who has strikingly effeminate features—pale skin, soft-looking, chin-length hair—and had always realize he's a real life bishonen, but never knew just how much. Until one day in the art studio she looked up from her drawings and saw said friend sitting on his desk and he's wearing a hair band. For a second she thought 'Whoa, who's the hot babe' before blinking a few times and realized it was her friend all along.
    • She mentioned to the other boys in the group in passing that if she could get sometime alone with the first friend, with an eyeliner and lip-gloss and maybe some androgynous clothes, she'd make a kick ass babe out of him. The boys paused with distant looks in their eyes and after lot of fidgeting and throat-clearing, they all agree it would be awesome. Now if only the friend would actually let her gave him a makeover...
  • We've all had at least one same-sex friend who's like this. Admit it.
    • This editor and his friends know a kid whom we suspect will have to grow up bisexual to accommodate everyone wanting him.
      • ...You're talking about my cousin, aren't you?
    • I admit it. Worst part is, I can't remember if she's actually bisexual, or if that was just a joke.
  • This troper knows someone who is straight-up the epitome of this. Very tall and handsome, not to mention completely suave. In addition his left eye is slightly misaligned. The mentioned imperfection just makes him all the more sexy... and I'm not even gay.
  • This troper had a friend in High School that he would go gay for. When he attempted to explain this to his friends after a seemingly innocuous question, he was met with "Why on Earth would you do that?" When this troper brought his friend's picture up via Myspace, everyone in the room (including no less than three straight college guys) had the exact same reaction: "HOT DAMN!"
  • This Troper once said "I'm so hot I turn guys gay, and so feminine that I turn girls lesbian."
    • Are you me?
    • I always said that to myself when . THEN I became bi.
    • These[1]◊ Kpop[2]◊ stars[3]◊ can relate.
  • This troper has a very hot male social studies teacher who borders on being a real life Bishonen and has seen straight male classmates act very suspiciously around him.
  • This Troper had a heterosexual friend who was so tired of this he repeatedly wished he were gay just so he could enjoy. His two experiments with other guys only left him bored. He ended up with a girl who suffers from Even The Girls Want Her, so it all worked out in the end.
  • It's a running joke on the campus of the University of Notre Dame that the vast majority of the student body (yes, even the macho boys... especially the macho boys) feel this way about former ND quarterback Brady Quinn. The day Quinn started for the Cleveland Browns, the school paper featured a comic of a newscaster announcing "Tonight Brady Quinn starts for the Cleveland Browns." The next panel contained this gem: "In related news, you just got an erection."
  • This troper had a hot friend in high school where everyone had a crush on this guy. Everyone knew the girls had the crushes, but for the guys, no one told.... until two years after he graduated, when, in a discussion with a very close friend from the same high school unashamedly admitted that he would go gay for the hot guy. I said that I would too. "You don't think...?" Three days later, we had our confirmation via Myspace. The hot guy now has a re-written song: "He's the guy even the other guys want."
  • It is commonly agreed that an incredibly sexy male is this in my High School. He is polite, nice, funny, and fit. And he knows it. As a straight man, I would rather have a romantic relationship with him than with his girlfriend.
  • Played for laughs in this troper's life: there's a running joke among his circle of friends that involves them flirting with him at every opportunity. For the record, he's pretty bland-looking.
  • This troper's school put a production of Jesus Christ Superstar on recently, and everyone (literally EVERYONE) is still in love with the guy who played Jesus. He's charming, self-effacing, friendly to absolutely everyone, and skinny and rakish and...see? This troper has met several guys who've said that they adore him, and he seems to spend half his time hugging most of the yeargroup.
  • This Troper, ever since he was five, has been looked at, hugged, and occasionally kissed by multiple guys in his class. Not to mention that one of his friends recently confessed that he hangs out with him because "I really want your ass". *Sigh*
    • Three years and two accounts later, most of said class members have moved on, but now I'm getting hit on by crossdressers, college guys, and older women (okay, it was just one woman, but she was almost 30, for God's sake!). *Sigh* It never ends, does it? (It helps that I'm openly bi and finally "legal", but still.)
  • I find this a uniquely disturbing fact about my life. I even had a secret blog about me called Hottest Thing dealing with a bunch of scandalous pictures. The blogger was a classmate from 12th grade. He often said, "I'd really love to hug you and grope it all." I never talked to him again. One comment on the l=blog said they 'I want to see more." It was a comment of me photoshopped with a speedo and nothing else. I am thinking about changing my name
  • Happens to this troper's guy friend. He gained more popularity ever since he was involved in the Changing of the Wreath at D.C. He couldn't walk around the school without some guy chasing after him. Literally. One guy pretty much hugs him to death whenever he sees him.
  • The same troper also has a limerent-like crush on a boy in his world history class. It helps that he seems introverted, something that turns said troper on.
  • My junior year history teacher at my all-girls' school. Everyone wanted him at some point or another - including the lesbians.
  • This troper has a regular customer at his workplace who is such a ridiculously handsome young man that even one of my lesbian coworkers has admitted that she finds him incredibly sexy. I would happily fight her for him, though, because he's that gorgeous.
  • This troper hasn't had many celebrity mancrushes (except for one or two male porn stars), but remembers a screaming hot Czech nanny who spent the summer in his old home town... and her shaved-down, dreadlocked bicyclist boyfriend. Took me years to admit I'd happily bang both of them. (And should have, in her case... she was a total flirt...)
  • This straight male troper would have hot gay sex with his best friend. Okay so other than that I'm completely straight
  • This troper has a classmate whose boyfriend is plagued by the affections of both guys and girls.
  • This troper has a redheaded, Bishonen classmate who is married to at least three boys and one girl in the school, and has generally scandalous relationships with nearly everyone else.
  • Try being straight (well, straight-ish) and having the odd habit of attracting guys, it goes from funny to embarrassing fairly quickly.
  • This troper, apparently. Its weird because I'm somewhat overweight and yet plenty of guys have fallen for me. I had a friend in high school who was bisexual, and he would even invite me to his house and he would always want to wrestle me and have some kind of physical contact with me, {there's more on this story in the Closet Key page}. Then, in my newest job, a fellow employee was following me around all day and being very helpful to the point of insistence. He even bought me lunch, something he never did for no one else! When I told him of the other new employee, who had similar features, his eyes seem to light up with child-like glee and he said "Really"? "He looks like you"?! {which was an overstatement, because other than the glasses, he looked nothing like me)! :P Not the mention several other similar cases of Ho Yay from other guys I've met, especially those on networking sites! Even more strange is the fact that they're very...vocal about their attraction. Oh boy. D= On another note, I have three words for you: Gay for Jade.
  • This gay male troper recalls a slow but handsome fellow on his hall freshman year of college. Every straight guy on the hall seemed to have naughty thoughts about him, with one guy going so far as to say "He's like Kelso: you want to fuck his brains out, but only if he doesn't talk."
  • Now, This Troper is good looking, but not like that. However, I had a best friend who had this effect on others, and after hanging out with him long enough, it started rubbing off on me, with strange men buying me drinks and chatting me up in bars. Sadly for everyone, he was asexual, but we liked to tease everyone with the implications that we might be 'hooked up', which did the opposite of dissuading anyone from trying. He also wasn't much of a fighter, so unfortunately it also got his ass kicked, in spite my attempts to cover him.
    • I myself got this over one guy who bought me a drink, a straight-acting but probably gay man, who later showed up with such frequency that he must've been stalking me. I got giddy when he invited me to ice cream. I had a really anguished struggle over whether I would ditch my friend to join him.
  • This troper is a straight female, so I may not be the best judge, but there was one boy at my school who seemed to invoke this. The guys flirted with him more than the girls did, and when he played Officer Lockstock in the school production of Urinetown, everyone in the show would sneak into the wings to watch his performance of The Cop Song, because it was just that hot.
  • I knew a dude in high school. He was a ginger, had a bone structure I continue to envy till this day, muscular, my height (5'5, I'm short), and an overall real cool guy. Of course most of this comes out of envy since he was way more popular with girls than I was.
  • This troper once kept seeing this Czech nanny at the library in his home town — a tall, incredibly beautiful Pettanko — and she was hot enough. Then her boyfriend came to visit, and this troper couldn't keep his eyes off him either. (Looking back, the fact that I'd have happily shagged them both should have been a clear hint that this troper was bi, but oh well...) The sad part is that I did eventually get to formally meet the nanny in question, and she was quite the flirt... who knows...
  • Throughout the latter half of high school (and a little after that) I (a male) was regularly hit on by one of three male classmates. They weren't shy.
  • This troper has had this directed towards him before. To point where have been in conversation that friend said defending self reflecting on time they pretended to be gay was that the only thing they were serious about was when they said about me. This was quickly followed up by someone else by saying "It's him. He doesn't count." This troper honestly couldn't stop laughing. Other major moment that stands out was time it wasn't as funny for me (at the time, but it makes a funny story) when an outright camp gay guy couldn't stop doing stuff until point where it got creepy.
  • It's kind of an joke/universally accepted truth in my high school Drama club that everyone would go gay for this one guy (bisexual, adorable, great sense of humor and exceptionally intelligent not to mention just damn sweet) who graduated last year. I'm pretty sure this has been confirmed by every guy in the class.
  • This troper's boyfriend has had no fewer than three guys flirt with him since I've known him. xD
  • This gay troper fell in love with a(n ADORABLE) German foreign exchange student (too bad he was straight), and all of the girls(plus me) were obsessing over him, then when two of my straight guy friends saw a picture of him, they both said that if were gay they would probably feel the same way, then my gay friend came up and failed to see what was so attractive about him.
  • This troper is a straight female, so I may not be the best judge, but there was one boy at my school who seemed to invoke this. The guys flirted with him more than the girls did, and when he played Officer Lockstock in the school production of Urinetown, everyone in the show would sneak into the wings to watch his performance of The Cop Song, because it was just that hot.
  • This troper is aware of how handsome he is (and no, I'm not bragging; I've been told so many many times) and any day in the week he gets stares from everybody. Particularly from guys who think they're being subtle, but aren't at all.
  • This troper's Civil Procedure professor. Everyone in the class wants to marry him.

CelebritiesEdit

  • I can't believe no one has mentioned Master Chief yet.
  • Sorry for hijacking the top of the page, but after reading, I must ask... okay, you * want* the guy, but * what* do you want with him? Just curious >.<
  • James Franco. Without hesitation.
  • Jamie Bamber, anyone?
  • Everyone would turn gay for Noel Fielding. Everyone.
    • You wish your girlfriend looked more like Noel Fielding!
    • This male troper has no interest in him at all.
      • you sir, are the minority
        • No, I hate how he looks too, at least by the google images, he looks like a drugged emo that smiles a lot.
          • Correction: A HOT drugged emo that smiles a lot. :)
            • I agree with the guy who agrees that he's not that hot.I'll admit he's got style.
    • Must be the hair. Damn him.
  • ...Am I the only guy who could go for Bruce Lee? Like...y'know...if the choices were doing him and letting the world explode. Except the world wouldn't explode anyway, because that's a stupid dichotomy, so it'd just be me doing him...his back can choke a tree, you know.
  • In an interesting twist on the usual example, this troper saw a youtube video not long ago of a guy cosplaying as Travis Touchdown at a convention. After he struck a few poses and spouted off some Travis-style obscenity, a nearby girl could be heard excitedly muttering something along the lines of "Oh my God... I'm a lesbian but I would do him in a HEARTBEAT."
    • Would this be the one?
  • This straight male troper just has a man crush on David Bowie. And on Alan Cumming, especially after X2.
  • This male troper feels this way for Naruto Uzumaki after seeing him in Shippuden. Come on, a very pretty face, tanned skin, those cute fox-like whisker marks on his face, his lithe but muscular body, big blue eyes, a tendency for Shirtless Scene's, coupled with a heaping helping of Badassness? It definitely helps that he got a slightly less orange outfit. Now if only it was less baggy...It's a crime to cover all that up!
    • This troper is pretty sure he's asexual, but teenage Naruto always gives him certain ... stirrings. Especially those scenes where he's shirtless and oiled.
  • Tom Welling. I know many a men who admit a man crush.
  • Chris Paterson, Scottish rugby captain.
  • George Clooney has frequently been associated with this sort of thing. Not, of course, with the Ambiguously Gay part, and given his long list of paramours (who despite the end of the relationships, apparently still like him), he's well aware of it. Which means most guys should hate him, but, well, he's George Clooney.
    • This troper's friend once said he'd go gay for George Clooney's voice. Weird or awesome? You decide.
  • This editor has heard a number of straight men refer to Johnny Depp's attractiveness, including one who claimed that "the only reason to kick him out of bed is to fuck him on the floor".
    • The saying at this troper's school went: "Every human being, regardless of gender and primary sexuality, is additionally Depp-sexual."
      • There's a history teacher in this troper's school that is identical to Johnny Depp, and yes, even the guys want him as well. He gets lots of Valentine's Day cards each year, and with his added stoic-ness well... * squee*
    • This gay, male troper has never understood the appeal of Johnny Depp. Or David Bowie, for that matter.
      • Oh, thank god, I'm not the only one.
        • Neither of you is alone. Depp's one of the greatest actors in the business, no question. And Bowie's an awesome, well, everything. But this gay male troper has zero sexual interest in either of them. Maybe we all missed the memo?
        • Thank goodness I'm not the only one! Great actor, but this straight female troper missed the memo, too!
        • This straight female troper certainly missed.
      • I (gay male) do feel attracted to Depp, but not David, George Clonety and whoever the teengirls are screaming for at the moment, like the vampire guy from Twilight or Leonardo DiCaprio, I honestly think that both are hideous.
    • Pirates of the Caribbean is this editors favorite movie of Johnny Depp for the sole reasons that in that movie he is amazingly funny, flirtatious, sarcastic, has braided long hair, wears eyeliner, and the outfit... SWOON.
      • I've got a huge crush on johnny depp,but I'll admit that I don't think he's the hottest guy ever...something about his cheekbones bothers me
  • Christian Bale. Any guy who doesn't have a man-crush on him is in pure denial.
    • This troper had this argument with one of his closest friends. Coincidentally, this troper suspects that's why they're not so close anymore.
    • Subverted by this gay troper, who wants nothing to do with him at all.
    • Played straight by a straight police officer this troper once met. Major Bale man-crush. Also, he was incredibly flattered when said troper told him he looks like Matthew Fox.
    • Proven by cracked.com, a testosterone-filled, men-aimed, sometimes sexist and traditional-male-oriented humor website who has a full crush at him. Seriously the whole website seems to have a fetish for him. I can understand them.
    • Heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual, you have to search to find someone who isn't Bale-sexual.
  • This troper has seen it happen with one of his friends and Mark Wahlberg, but as if that wasn't enough, he himself finds Hugh Laurie extremely attractive. And before you say it's only because of House MD, this troper's Stupid Sexy Flanders moment came only after watching A Bit of Fry and Laurie sketches and his Inside the Actors Studio interview.
    • My name is Ryan, I'm a straight male and I have an obsession with Hugh Laurie's legs. Especially after seeing this Saturday Night Live clip, where he has the House stubble, three inch stilettos and a barely decent mini-skirt on. I'm well aware that I need help.
    • You're among friends. In this straight female troper's opinion, Hugh Laurie's legs are simply amazing.
    • Hugh's piercing blue eyes and sexy chin-stubble doesn't help, either.
  • Surprisingly, quite a few straight men have guy-crushes on Simon Pegg. It seem that unlike most of the men on this list, his magnetism comes from his personality, and the rather laid back way he handles male/male relationships.
    • And if it's not on Simon Pegg, then it's on the characters he voices. Even the not human ones. This troper has had a unexplainable crush on Buck of Ice Age 3 ever since seeing the movie, despite normally being completely avoident (is that even a word?) to anything gay.
    • He's cute, he often has a sort of Daniel-Craig (mmm) look to him, and the scene in Hot Fuzz where he comes riding into town, strapped with guns. He also has a soulful, almost pained look in his eyes as well. Uh, not that I'm not totally straight or anything.
      • He was wearing sunglasses in that scene.
  • This other troper has seen some straight men thinking Viggo Mortensen and Sean Bean are very attractive as well. Same goes for Hugh Jackman.
    • Hey, this Kinsey 5/6 Lesbian troper is secure enough in her sexuality to admit that Hugh Jackman is a very, very attractive man.
  • Imagine if El Goonish Shive's Tedd were real. Now watch Brian Molko of Placebo, circa '95-'99. You don't have to imagine any more. Yowza. It's the 'girly' aspect that affects this troper more than anything else.
    • Oh my god, Tedd lives. Thank you.
    • The girly aspect is tasty, but it'd be a safe bet that the bitter end era short haircut had a good number of people adding him to the 'to do' list.
  • As a more recent (read: younger) example, James Mc Avoy.
  • Two Words: Tim Curry.
    • Agreed. And it really has very little to do with Rocky Horror Picture Show, which would be most folks' normal first thought.
    • This troper is 100% straight but he find's Tim Curry's voice to be ridiculously sexy.
    • Also agreed. Put him in his Frank N Furter outfit and this straight male Troper would more then happily jump into bed with him.
  • If we go J-Music, we may count this troper's male friend who strongly fanboys Yoshiki from X-Japan. And even * more* after seeing the video of Crucify my Love, where Yoshiki appears sans make-up and weird stage clothings.
    • Ahem...Gackt.
      • Gackt? Naw. Now Miyavi, on the other hand...
      • Miyavi? Try Hyde. And the troper who posted this is male.
      • Mana. Just...Mana.
        • Ha! Funny story about Mana. A girl in this troper's Japanese class was doing a presentation on Visual-kei, and showed a picture of Malice Mizer. For a bit, she was talking, and then the guy sitting in front of this troper turned to her (troper) and said "oh god, I thought that was a girl! I was so checking him out!" This troper started laughing.
    • This troper (and his asexual friend) squee whenever we watch Super Junior. I know this is a J-music conversation, but dammit, those boys are sexy! (Oh, and to add to the J-music: actor/singers Seto Koji and Kouhei Takeda. Damn, they're adorable.)
  • Chuck Norris.
  • The Dresden Dolls are a two person band, with one male and one female member. This editor can't see anything unusual about anyone having a crush on both of them, regardless of sexual orientation.
    • Guilty as charged on both counts. Well, I am * now* .
    • Oh lord yes! This straight female troper surprised her friends by gushing over how hot "they" were, only to have all of them eventually agree.
  • Who can forget Sean Connery, the oldest sexy man (and the sexiest old man) out there.
    • Subverted: Zardoz.
    • Also due to the fact that he's reportedly a major asshole in person.
    • Christopher Lee. Older, sexier, and a heavy metal & fantasy literature afficianado. You can't get any better than that.
      • This troper has a huge man-crush on Christopher Lee and his sexy, sexy voice. Him and Don LaFontaine.
  • David Archuleta. Just... David Archuleta.
    • Forget "Archie"—I'll take the man who came out...on top.
  • A co-worker of this troper once mentioned at work that, if he could, he would have had a relationship with Frank Sinatra.
  • David Bowie. Androgyny can do this.
  • This troper remembers reading movie reviews of Batman Begins (written by crotchety old women) bitching about how feminine Cillian Murphy was and how OMG OMG he must be the Gay Villain from here on out and we should refer to him as fulfilling every limp-wristed archetype possible whether he does so or not. And then she remembers the reviews by straight male fans with a considerably more... appreciative reaction. Mostly because it's him or Katie Holmes. Eww.
    • This troper wishes that those reviewers would 'fess up: Murphy was the hottest thing in that movie, hands down.
    • This male troper reluctantly admits that Murphy was hotter in that movie than Katie Holmes. And Bale, but by a slimmer margin.
      • This troper must admit they found Bale hotter than Murphy, but had no problems realizing Murphy was miles hotter than Katie Holmes.
    • Breakfast On Pluto. Just... Breakfast on Pluto.
    • "Would you like to see my mask?" Normally I love the ladies, but, yes... I would.
    • The Joker. Now, he was hot.
  • David Tennant.
    • In this troper's household, her father's admiration for David Tennant was enough for her mother to offer to buy him a 'Mrs. David Tennant' T-shirt. He never explicitly refused it.
      • Erm. I've got one of those.
    • This troper's best male friend, who is straight, has explicitly admitted that David Tennant is one of the few people in the world that he would go gay for. He utterly adores him.
    • This troper admitted at a party that he would turn for DT. I was only slightly drunk, and I still stand by what I said anyway.
    • Has anyone ever heard the phrase "It's not gay if you're straight"? Well, in this troper's circle of friends, the rule is "It's not gay if it's David Tennant". Because let's face it, every sane being wants him no matter what their orentation is.
    • I have a huge man crush on David Tennant and I'm 100% hetero.
    • This troper and her girlfriend are both lesbians, but we not only agree David Tennant is gorgeous, but seeing him in drag, speaking in his natural Scottish accent...seducing someone...biting his lip..."Oh dear, my ring gets awfully tight when I get hot"
    • Oh hell yes, David Tennant. It's not gay if he's a Time Lord.
  • What? You thought guys only watched Supernatural for hot chicks and guns? This troper's only watching for the two leads. Woof.
    • Two hot guys and the Impalawoof indeed. Is Car Yay even possible?
    • But subverted by this gay troper, who thinks they both look too... perfect and doll-like to be actually attractive.
      • You obviously haven't sat through a full episode, then — more often than not, Our Boys get the ever-loving crap kicked out of them by the end of the episode, leaving them attractively damaged. Thanks, Author Appeal!
    • This troper's (now bisexual) husband admitted that Supernatural awakened a long-dormant crush he's had on Jensen Ackles since the actor's salad days—when he played Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives. (Moreover, Eric Brady was a fraternal twin....)
      • How about Jensen in "Ten Inch Hero"? The bihawk, kilt, tattoos.... mmmmmm....
    • Misha Collins aka Castiel. Damn, just...damn. I've heard my entirely straight father admit he's mad about Castiel. It must be the eyes.
  • Following the release of Iron Man, this troper's boyfriend feels this way about Robert Downey Jr. (And this troper, for a matter of fact. Yow).
    • This troper has a friend that says that he's totally straight "unless Robert Downey Jr. comes into town" ever since that movie.
    • When that movie came out, this troper had a huge man-crush on Iron Man. Though, oddly enough, not Tony Stark or Robert Downey Jr. But once he puts the armor on...
    • For this troper, it wasn't Iron Man so much as Shelock Holmes. Damn.
    • This troper was in denial after Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes and always denied his feelings, but Iron Man 2 confirmed that I would go gay for Robert Downey Jr. Damn, why did he have to act so narcissistic and intelligent, I can't resist that and would it kill him to wear more than a sleeveless vest when flaunting his genius?
  • Antonio Banderas, especially in Desperado and Interview with the Vampire.
    • But not Zorro?? Come on!
  • Richard Gere.
  • Sendhil Ramamurthy, the actor and former male model who plays Dr. Mohinder Suresh on Heroes. Even his male co-stars are on record mentioning how incredible Sendhil looks, especially when he employs his Secret Weapon, his great beaming smile. Masi Oka aka Hiro Nakamura uttered the now famous phrase, "Help, I'm being melted by Sendhil's smile!" Just look for interviews clips on YouTube.
    • No need: check it out here.
    • Heroes is full of handsome male actors and tons of Ho Yay moments. What about Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Haitian)? Or Adrian Pasdar (Nathan Petrelli) and his incredible sexy eyelashes and chiseled face? Or Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli) and his boyish charm? Or Zachary Quinto (Sylar) and his delicious chest?
    • If there's one thing the cast commentaries of Heroes prove, it's that Adrian Pasdar renders anyone's sexuality moot. Pretty much every time he comes onscreen, they start raving about his piercing eyes/strong jaw/"designer stubble"/how good he looks in suit/how good he looks not in a suit/etc. These moments are usually quickly followed by comments about how gorgeous the female leads are.
    • ... One of the few redeeming features of Vol. 5 for Nathan fans was the scene where Sythan is turning to lean against a desk with the camera focussing intently on his ass. Cue squeeing.
    • Also, in the commentary for the first season episode "Five Years Gone", in a scene where Milo Ventimiglia and Ali Larter kiss, the guys commentating make comments that are probably meant to sound like they're jealous of Milo, but it comes off like they're jealous of Ali.
    • The entire cast also has a massive crush of Christopher Eccleston.
  • This lesbian troper would go straight for Zachary Quinto.
    • This straight female troper finds herself very much attracted to Ali Larter. When she was featured in Allure magazine, this troper found herself standing the middle of the magazine aisle in Wal-Mart poring over all of the pictures (including one of her with Colin Farrell in American Outlaws and said troper realized that she ever-so-slightly envied Colin Farell).
    • This straight female troper would gladly do the horizontal tango with any of the above, but should Hayden Panetierre want to join in, she's not sure she could find it in her to say no.
    • This straight female troper says "Count me in!" Had a Stupid Sexy Hayden moment some time ago...
    • Well, for this now- bisexual male troper, it has to be Thomas Dekker, a.k.a. Zach. When Claire punched Jackie in return for her homophobic remarks... well I wanted to be Claire so, so much. Anyone seen Thomas in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles? Do it.
  • You watch Firefly and tell me, seriously, that you wouldn't turn gay for Nathan Fillion. You can't. It's impossible.
    • This troper wouldn't. Oh snap, guess it is possible.
      • Then perhaps Simon's more your type. This troper's experience points to damn near EVERYONE wanting to hit at least one of them.
    • Everyone that this troper knows who has seen Firefly and/or Castle has a crush on Nathan Fillion, including the guys.
    • Not to mention Morena Baccarin for us girls. Fueled by the scene of her washing herself in the pilot, the lesbian kiss in War Stories, and... this troper will be in her bunk.
    • For this troper, it was Kaylee. Wrench Wench Geeky Turn On, anyone?

"So why are we watching this internet superhero thing again?""fair enough" true story.

    • For this troper, River triggered a weird combination of physical attraction and strong maternal need to protect and care for her.
    • For this troper, Zoe sparked a strange combination of awe, respect, and attraction.
    • This troper and his girlfriend have an understanding that the only threesome we will ever have will have to involve Nathan Fillion.
  • This troper, while making fun of the Doom movie with a friend, was somewhat surprised to hear him utter the now-immortal words "I would totally be gay for Karl Urban."
  • Several male viewers have thought Jaye Davidson◊ (The Crying Game, Stargate) was a very lovely woman until they learned he wasn't a woman at all. This troper isn't sure, however, how many continued to find him attractive after they knew. Does he belong in this section?
    • Yes. Yes he does.
  • Everybody's gay for Gaius!
    • That sounds like it would make a great new sitcom.
    • GOD this heterosexual male troper would watch that sitcom so hard. Pun incredibly intended.
  • Jude Law. Rufus Sewell.
  • This troper was once told that even heterosexual men were gay for Brad Pitt. For his money, he thinks that if you wouldn't do Tilda Swinton, there's something wrong with you.
  • This troper has a couple of friends known to argue over who gets to sleep with Ewan MacGregor. One of them is a heterosexual guy and the other is a lesbian.
  • This troper has heard the phrase "gay for Duchovny," and knows more than one straight female Battlestar Galactica fan who'd switch teams for Mary McDonnell.
    • Mary McDonnell is a goddess and basically sex in human form. I would marry her if I could.
  • Australian variety-show host Rove McManus asks guests, "Who would you turn gay for?" Most of them answer seriously. .
    • Incidentally, he never asks this of guests who are actually gay. I also suspect that Rove Mc Manus himself probably deserves an entry in this list.
      • He asked Darren Hayes, who'd recently married his male partner, who he'd turn straight for. Right off the top of my head I can't remember any other gay guests during the period he actually asked that question.
      • Chris Rock jokingly said Queen Latifah
        • Bob Brown (who said Missy Higgins, incidentally).
  • Two words: Ricardo Montalban. Especially the voice.
  • Personally, I have HUGE girl-crushes on Natalie Portman and Nicole Kidman. My "even if I was a man" crush is the rightly-mentioned John Barrowman, as well as Wilson Jermaine Heredia as Angel. He's gorgeous no matter what, but the thing is that I like him better in drag.
    • John Barrowman is of course gay, but he almost certainly has lesbian fans.
      • This troper's straight younger brother has referred to John Barrowman (well, technically, it was Captain Jack Harkness) as "handsome, charming, and dashing" unironically. And he hasn't seen that episode of Torchwood where Jack calls himself a "dashing hero" and Ianto agrees.
      • This troper has bumped into John Barrowman a time or two and would like to vouch for his incredible and apparently effortless magnetism. Despite having no romantic interest in guys, ever, I probably wouldn't kick him out of bed.
      • This troper recently had a very straight guy-friend very seriously tell her (while discussing Torchwood) that no one, no matter their orientation, can deny John Barrowman is an incredibly sexy man.
      • While on the subject of "Gay Men That Women Want": Rupert Everett and Neil Patrick Harris.
        • And Mark Gillespie from the boyband Big Fun. Easily, one of the most gorgeous men This Troper has ever seen in her life.
        • And don't forget George Takei.
        • And David Hyde Pierce. And Anthony Rapp. (I have eclectic tastes. Then again, if I were going to be artificially inseminated, I would solicit John Barrowman for sperm.)
        • Another lesbian attesting that John Barrowman and George Takei are incredibly attractive, and she would not mind going with either one of them.
  • Aaron Eckhart. God, that man is charming.
    • Oh yes. He made Batman gay.
    • This otherwise entirely heterosexual troper will freely admit that if he had to have a homosexual encounter, it would be with Eckhart.
    • At this point can't we just say "The Cast of the Nolan Batman Films"?
      • Yes. We can, we definitely can.
        • Even The Joker. This heterosexual troper never cared for Heath Ledger until The Dark Knight. Still don't care for his non-Joker roles, but put on the scars and makeup and Oh Yeah....
      • Should we just say that both Nolan Batman films are just Rule 34 for the mind all the way through?
        • Nolan Batman films: Making you discover more of your weird kinks in two hours than you thought was possible.
  • Simon LeBon from Duran Duran, for several guys who are 80's children
  • For the Spanish and Latin-American tropers: Miguel Bosé.
    • Totally, this lesbian troper find him very hot but she discover he had this effect after a conversation with his father and cousins (who remember are latin american and high in the macho-attitude thing)

Cousin 1: -He's not even a real singer, he only have looks. Father: - And you hadn't get to see the all extravagants dances and clothes he had in my time, nobody could focusin the music with this. cousin 2: - So we consider him a handsome fag?

  • awkard silence*

cousin 1: -For girls...

  • A lesbian friend of mine has sort-of crushed on Morten Harket from A-Ha ever since she was a little girl.
  • Apparently, Michael Phelps has that effect as well.
    • As do Shawn Johnson and Alicia Sacramone. Is preternatural flexibility subject to Power Perversion Potential?
    • What about Croatian athlete Blanka VlaÅ¡ic? She's 193 cms and 73 kgs. of pure gorgeous.
    • This troper knows a lesbian woman who admits she would go straight for Phelps. So, is that an inversion?
  • Unfortunately, I, [4] avert this trope: while people were playing the game Who Would You Go Gay For, I even had a hard time trying to work out who I'm straight for. And that probably makes me the weirdest person on this page. Yay me!
    • Nope, you're not alone. This lesbian troper would go straight for Christopher Meloni (preferably the Oz version, although the Special Victims Unit version isn't bad either).
      • Actually, I meant "I'm straight, I just don't have the hots for any celebrities." That's why I'm oh so very weird.
    • Admittedly this troper is asexual and pretty much aromantic, but she cannot think of a single celebrety she would "go sexual" for, of either female or male persuasion. She would, however, gladly go to second base with either Harrison Ford or Liv Tyler, both previously mentioned on this page, so she isn't entirely certain if she's an aversion or a subversion. . . .
      • This troper is in the same situation. Asexual, largely aromantic, and I'd totally be willing to go second base (no further) for Katee Sackhoff and in fictitious worlds, Melaka Fray. I'd also be willing to go that far with Motoo Fujiwara and one or two others, when it comes to guys. I think it's actually played straight, 'cause you can swap genders - might as well swap orientation. After all, you can't really be more attractive than if "Even The Asexuals Want You", haha.
      • Another aromantic asexual here. There is only one person in the whole world I might have turned sexual for, depending on very specific circumstances: John Lennon. Also, I've always had a girl-crush on Mila Kunis from That 70s Show She is gorgeous! And I've allowed myself to imagine what it would be like to kiss her, but no further than that.
  • This troper grew an ever-so-small crush on Lee Jun Ki due to his role in The King And The Clown
    • This male editor, just looking at that photo, can't tell if that's male or female. And can't bring himself to care.
  • Vin Diesel. Look at him shirtless in the Pacifier, you will not regret it.
    • This happily heterosexual troper didn't.
    • Pretty sure you aren't in the right place, then.
      • And I'm pretty sure sure he meant "didn't regret it.
    • Vinny also gets a huge bonus for being One Of Us.
  • Iman... David Bowie is a lucky man... now that I'm thinking... I want him too.
    • This troper had a friend who saw the cover of Young Americans and commented on what a "beautiful lady" the "model" on the cover was. When asked if he would date her, he said yes, probably. Then I Dropped A Bridget On Him.
  • Look, I'm just going to come out and say it; I would totally do Barack Obama.
    • In the interests of political equalness, I present to you a young John McCain. Yikes.
      • Holy CRAP. If anyone needs me, I'll be in my bunk.
    • Howard Dean. Liberals win.
    • This gay troper thinks that while Obama is very attractive, so is his wife! Michelle just epitomizes style and beauty, doesn't she?
  • Three words: Gay for Shane.
  • This troper definitely has a mancrush on Bruce Campbell. His wife would seriously consider lesbianism if the other woman was Asia Argento or Chiaki Kuriyama. (My wife also wants to mention that she's met a large number of straight guys who admitted that they might go gay for Trent Reznor.)
    • All this tropers friends proudly admit they'd go gay for Bruce Campbell, though she doesn't seem to get it.
    • And if we're allowed to include fictional characters whom real people have crushes on, we're both attracted to Felicia.
  • When Simoun was airing, there was a "Guragief moe" thread (populated by Japanese fanboys) on 2ch, and much talk of being "gay for Anubituf" on the English language fan forums.
    • This Troper is cosplaying as Anubituf in the near future, and agrees. The Gender Bender aspect of the show makes it quasiquestionable though.
  • Basshunter. Come on, seriously, Basshunter.
  • This troper had this happen with Edward Cullen of Twilight. I had to stop reading at one point in order to reassure myself I was straight.
    • This troper's male friends who have read the book all love Edward. But not that way...
      • Me too. Not Rob Pattinson, god no. Possibly because of Ed's fill-in-the-blank description. And I hate Twilight.
  • This troper knows of at least one otherwise straight guy who did a double-take when Naveen Andrews, as Sayid on Lost, showed up for a date in a recent episode in formal clothes with his hair nicely slicked back.
  • Speaking of Lost, while This Troper is a perfectly heterosexual male, despite all biological possibility, Sawyer makes me wet.
  • This troper has a closet man-crush on Fred. Yes, THAT Fred. The YouTube star. The teenager playing a six-year-old. He's not sure whether there's something seriously wrong with him or if this is completely natural. Stupid sexy Fred.
  • No one's mentioned Tom Brady? That stunning smile, that chiseled jaw, those eyes....those Super Bowl rings? Maybe I'm biased since I'm from Boston...Or is it residual hotness from Gisele? (His ex now, I know, but still...)
    • Not to mention that SNL segment where he's wearing just a white-collar shirt and his underwear...
  • Bill Kaulitz
    • Oh gods yes. The things this bisexual troper would do to him....
    • This one too.
    • Bill Kaulitz is pretty much the real world's Bridget. Everyone's gay for Bill.
  • This otherwise lesbian troper would do Gerard Way in a heartbeat. A heartbeat, I tell you. (...he's pretty!) Most Bishonen also have this effect on her.
  • This troper remembers a Stone Temple Pilots thread on a music forum one time that ended up turning into a bunch of straight guys talking about their man-crushes on the lead singer, Scott Weiland.
    • This troper blames it on the fact that he has appeared shirtless in almost every one of his videos, which usually have a lot of close-ups of his body. Needless to say, this troper and several others find it pretty distracting. The whole androgynous look he had going after Tiny Music doesn't help either. Stupid Sexy Scott.
  • Shortly after the still-fairly-recent House/Cuddy kiss on House, this troper realized that she had envied both Lisa Edelstein and Hugh Laurie.
  • Because There Is No Such Thing As Notability, I present to you all Zolberg. Hamuna Hamuna.
  • For anyone who's ever seen a Bollywood movie, Shahrukh Kahn. All the adult males this troper has met has admitted to him being attractive, including the teenage boys that refuse to admit they've ever seen a Bollywood movie in the first place.
  • This (male) troper saw this magazine cover◊ and decided that he found David Beckham to be more attractive than his wife Victoria.
    • This female troper can't decide which of them does she envy the most. Stupid Sexy David * and* Victoria. :D
  • Two words: Hugh Jackman. This troper was distracted from a behind-the-scenes video of the film Australia by a picture of Jackman in a tight shirt on the same page. Stupid sexy Hugh.
  • Alexander Siddig◊, who has played Julian Bashir in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Prince Nasir in Syriana. This troper asserts that beauty like this crosses all gender preferences.
    • Agreed, but this (other) troper finds that he looks too much like a skinny 15-year old in DS 9. Looks much better nowadays.
    • Who could watch that show and not want to be the filling in a Garak/Bashir sandwich? This (mostly)straight female troper would also happily go lesbian for Major Kira. And possibly Jadzia Dax, but only if Kira was involved.
  • This troper is a lesbian, but still finds Mate Kamaras devastatingly sexy. Just watch any clip of "Elisabeth" (in fact, just listen to him in that show) and try not to fall for him...
  • Masaaki Endoh.
    • This female troper saw him on stage recently and LOVED to see the faces of some guys in the first row, looking at Endoh pretty much googly-eyed. A bit more and they would've thrown themselves as Endoh's feet like 13-year-old fangirls.
  • Don Draper of Mad Men, anyone?
  • Possibly the most unusual example on this page: Ulysses S. Grant. Yes, you read that correctly. The Civil War general. This troper saw a few pictures of him in his history textbook, and he has to admit that the guy is rather hot. But only in uniform. Don't ask him why.
    • Not to mention that anyone would look good compared to most of the other presidents...
    • Unrelated except by uniforms— this troper would go out for a young Audie Murphy. 110-pounds, tiny, and Bad. Ass.
    • Every time I hear his voice I squeal like a little girl.
  • Stephen Fry. Also, as near the top of the page, Tim Curry. Something about their voices and (Fry's, especially) command of the language.
    • Based on personality, this troper would also probably go gay for Stephen. And David Mitchell, who is just lovely.
    • Stephen Fry is always being mentioned as man-crush material on reddit.
  • This troper would switch sides for Doctor Horrible. Neil Patrick Harris' evil grin helps out a lot in that respect.
    • This troper is totally straight, but if there were any one guy to change that, it would be Neil Patrick Harris.
    • This troper is a female, but I'm fairly sure that I'd still be in love with NPH, even if I was a dude.
    • This troper freely admits to being hetero-and-NPH-sexual.
    • This troper prefers the term "NPHeterosexual". It's more compact.
  • Cuba Gooding Jr. in Men of Honor was a finely-sculpted chunk of MAN. When his Shirtless Scene came round,this troper turned to his female friend who was watching it too and said,"Okay,I'm straight,but even I know how good he looks." "Oh yeah,totally."
  • Mike Rowe has a lot of across-the-board appeal.
  • Damon Albarn from Blur. And for that matter, all the members of the band.
    • This troper is a lesbian who would be straight for Damon.
  • This Troper's male friend has been successfully converted to being a fan of Miyavi because of his guitar skills and amazing musical talent, but had admitted immediately after seeing a picture of the Miyavi for the first time that he was getting a little sexually confused. Granted, he does look VERY feminine, but apparently the Stupid Sexy Miyavi thing lingers long after learning that he's just a very seductive man.
  • Brendon Urie from Panic at the Disco. That voice, lips and hair would make any man switch sides, not to mention all the attention he gets from women.
    • This Troper agrees about Brendon◊. Especially about those lovelylips. One thing needs to be added though. He has, in his own words, an apple bottom◊. It's seriously lucious◊ and he even has ass dimples! Go to :21 here. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Lastly? this◊ is a bonus gif of him putting the whole head of a microphone in his mouth.
      • I... I love you. That gif is just epic.
  • Danny Elfman. That red hair, those intense eyes, those lips. Not to mention an AMAZING voice and his intelligence. I could go on and on....
  • I know he's dead and all but Jimi Hendrix is pretty much the sexiest man ever to exist.
  • You know what I just found out? As well as being funny and having a kickass singing voice, The Nostalgia Critic is also really nice to look at. Damn him.
    • Okay, brain? We have to have a discussion. Not only would taking advantage of the Critic after he's just been drugged unconscious by The Nostalgia Chick be insanely morally wrong but it would also impossible to do. For one thing, you class yourself as an asexual man and for another, you live far too away from him. Now please stop it, okay?
    • This gay, male troper would do horrible, filthy things to Linkara, if only he had the chance.
  • This troper's husband proudly claims that Tim Gunn (of "Project Runway" fame) is single-handedly responsible for his bisexuality. Anderson Cooper isn't the only man to claim the title "Silver Fox".
  • To go a bit more old-school, Cary Grant is just so classy and elegant and snarky and... * guh*
  • This (at the time, fairly certain) heterosexual troper watched Titanic with her male bisexual friend. During the party below decks, we both declared our love for Kate and Leo. My mum passed by, hearing these comments, and asked, "Who do you love?". A synchronised pause, and we answered, "Both of them!".
  • Will Smith, is if this troper ever went gay it be him. Or Tyrese Gibson
  • Denzel Washington. I mean look at the guy.
  • Roger Federer. don't even pretend like you wouldn't, tennis fans.
    • This troper is surprised Andy Roddick hasn't been mentioned yet.
    • While Roddick and Federer are fine, too, according to this troper's male tennis-crazy friends, Rafael Nadal and Fernando González are the ones in charge.
  • This male Troper, who is generally asexual/biromantic, wants nothing more than to ravish Chris Pine after seeing the latest J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie. His boyish charm, laid-back approach to mortal danger, the voice, the fuzziness...and then there's the scene with the Green Skinned Space Babe.
    • Bruce Greenwood, do me now. Mmmm, an authoritative, seriously intelligent older man...
  • This troper would like to make sweet, sweet love with Scott Bakula. The man is absolutely edible.
  • Very odd example, but Dikembe Mutombo. This should apply to all hardcore basketball fans.
  • This troper couldn't believe that Thom Yorke hasn't been mentioned yet. Sure he's sexy and ugly at the same time, but when he's leaning towards the sexy side...wow.
  • Richard Dawkins. Admit it.
  • Michael Wincott. Yes, please.
  • Mike Rowe. His voice, personality, everything. I mean, seriously, look at that chest◊! This troper is a lesbian, but still counts under this trope as technicality. She's apparently not alone considering that the keywords "Mike Rowe Shirtless" gets about 161,000 hits on Google, and those can't all be straight women looking.
    • "I know what you're thinking, 'Mike, why Ford. Why now?'. Well, I'll tell you why. We can't do it in the back of a truck if you don't have a truck..."
    • This troper came across the following comments on some Mike-focused Youtube videos: "I'm not gonna lie, I'm straight, but if I was gay, Mike would be the cheese to my taco", "Man-crushes on Mike are understandable, he is worthy!" And lets not forget the clip featuring Mike receiving an email from a male fan: "Mike, I am a retired military man and harley rider, and I am secure in my heterosexuality but I have to say: Damn, I've got a man-crush on Mike Rowe."
  • David Boreanaz. Just seeing commercials for Bones gives me naughty thoughts.
    • Oh God. Christmas came early(and so did I) with The Goop on the Girl. More like The Goop on the Hunk. Take it off, Seeley!
    • My man-crush on him started with Buffy/Angel!
  • Speaking of Buffy/Angel, this troper is shocked that nobody has mentioned James Marsters yet.
    • Given the fact that just about every male character on the show have some level of Ho Yay with Spike, this troper has become highly skeptical of the idea that all that sexual tension was acting.
  • I remember the Eurovision contest 2009, and I heard how a girl refered to Alexander Rybak as "the cutest guy in the competition" and...Yes, I agree, (Even my straight brother admitted he was cute.)
  • Chris Evans is heaven. And it even rhymes!
  • No mention to Ryan Reynolds? All I can say: Damn!
  • Mark Wahlberg◊ really should have been mentioned by now.
  • Marlon Brando. This troper was watching a clip of his performance as Stanley in "A Streetcar Named Desire" and came across a comment that went something like: "I'm a straight dude, but holy shit Marlon..."
  • Keith David. The voice of Goliath and several other characters, and it helps that he's quite the attractive man in Real Life. Why hasn't he done audio books yet?
    • Too many car crashes caused by distractions due to orgasms, I'd wager. Oh, and if you think his speaking voice is sexy...Try his singing voice.
  • SMT (Straight Male Troper) here, gladly admits his man-crush on Jared Leto. That scene in "The Kill" music video, with two Jareds, one pushing the other against the wall....* swooon*
  • This Troper is completely straight, except for his man-crush on Leonardo DiCaprio◊ after watching The Departed and his equally badass performances in Blood Diamond and Body of Lies.
  • Ryan Phillipe. Specifically triggered by his line in The Way of the Gun directed to Sarah Silverman's character: "Shut that cunt's mouth or I'll come over there and fuck-start her head!"
  • Timothy Dalton, George Lazenby, & Sean Connery... never realized my man-crush on James Bond.
  • This female troper sees Yvonne Strahovski and thinks: "I'd tap that".
    • And Makarov. Goddammit, why does he need to be so damned beautiful?
  • This lesbian troper would hit Ryan Seacrest faster than a speeding bullet and is not ashamed of it. The man is seriously edible. She has, in fact, attempted to convince her bff (who really can sing) to try out for Idol just so she could talk to Ryan while he auditions - and, er, celebrate afterwards.
  • This troper first discovered Sam Worthington while watching the movie Avatar and is very glad he did. Yowza◊. His Avatar form in the movie is pretty easy on the eyes as well.
  • This straight male troper has colossal mancrushes on Keith Olbermann and Bruce Springsteen. I'm not entirely sure why.
  • Aleksander Skarsgard, Eric on True Blood.
  • As long as he was gagged so I wouldn't have to listen to his rantings, this rather straight male troper would totally do Glenn Beck
  • John Simm. This [6]◊ did not help.
    • Neither will this [7]◊
      • This troper knows lesbians who keysmash over him.
  • This male troper was never sure if he counted as bi or not, since he considers himself very open minded and the idea of being with another guy didn't bother him one bit, but he'd never actually known another guy that he particularly would have -wanted- that way, either. This is no longer the case. Captain Robert/Robert Brown◊ of Abney Park. It's not his looks that do it (not that he is in any way lacking there!), but...his voice...* shivers* Just listen to the song "She" and tell me you don't see what I mean.
  • This female troper is shocked and appalled that the British comedian Russell Howard has not been mentioned. Not only does every single girl she knows want to stalk/marry him, the guys she knows will actually admit that Russ is attractive, good-looking and maybe 'a tiny bit hot'.
  • For this male troper, it's Daniel Jackson. (Well... Michael Shanks, I guess, but the real Michael Shanks isn't an interstellar archaeologist who can both be sensitive and kick butt). Especially when he has his glasses on. And is trying to explain something. Yum. The absolutely wonderful Ho Yay he always had with O'Neill really didn't help.
    • This Asexual troper would gladly go for either Amanda Tapping or Richard Dean Anderson.
  • You all can have your pretty boys and Hollywood hunks, but This Troper knows the only man he would ever go for is Liam Neeson. Hot Dad, Papa Wolf, soulful, wonderfully deep inspiring voice....
  • Though never willing to admit it to any who knows him, in the safe anonymity of the tvtropes this troper will gladly admit to finding Mumford&gbv=2&aq=f&oq=&aqi= Marcus Mumford a very attractive, rugged-type man.
  • Cory Monteith, most notably in his role as Finn from Glee. Let me just say that Kurt has good taste in men.
    • For a long time, I thought I had averted this trope, but then I realized that I would do Matthew Morrison.
    • This heterosexual, male, very religious troper totally agrees with you on Cory Monteith. Gosh, that boy is hot...
    • What about Chris Colfer? Gosh Dang It To Heck, Chris Colfer!
  • Isaiah Mustafa. Old Spice Guy. Who doesn't want him? I ask you, seriously, how do you not gaze into those sexy eyes and the pecs and... Sorry, got carried away. Anyway, this straight female has seen many a YouTube comment involving man-crushes on this guy. Not that I can blame them :).
  • This comfortably straight male troper recently concluded that he is attracted to Nicholas Brendon.
  • CamiloVillegas◊. A rising star in the golf world, and damn hot to boot, especially with his "Spiderman" pose. I swear to god, every time he appears on TV the male announcers make at least one comment on how well his clothes fit on him. Oh, not to mention he's supposed to be a total sweetheart.
  • Nobody mentioned Zach Braff yet? This straight male troper has to restrain himself from glomping the TV whenever he watches Scrubs and JD says... well, anything.
  • Edward. Norton. FULLSTOP. An amazing actor, hot as the universe BEFORE the Big Bang, and with a tendency to appear topless in films. He's played Hulk, this troper's favourite superhero. I have discussions with girls about how hot he is.
  • Evidently, Til Shweiger had this effect in Inglourious Basterds. Here'sproof◊ from fandomsecrets. It's very...convincing proof.
  • This troper is from St. Louis and goes muy chalado for the Latinas (Penélope Cruz — dulce Maria en el pesebre), so I suppose it makes a little sense that he would switch sides for a chance at Albert Pujols.
    • It's the arm-porn, isn't it?
  • Jon Stewart, anyone? The man's facial expressions are adorable. You just want to snuggle with him.
  • I haven't read through this page, so I don't know if anyone's mentioned him yet, but...Chris Rea. Listen to him sing road to Hell, and tell me you don't feel that voice stirring you deep down. He's not much of a looker, but Jesus, that voice...
  • No-One's mentioned John Lennon yet, I'm sure I'm not the only straight male Beatles fan who thinks John was extremely hot (man, that picture of him in his New York City t-shirt...), he had a sexy singing voice too
  • This troper has a male friend who said he would've probably turned out straight if it hadn't been for Peter Davison's Doctor making him wibbly as a kid. Especially that cute face Fivey makes in the opening titles. And he had some very, very tight trousers, did Fivey...
  • This completely hetero troper, would have to say David Gilmour during the Live at Pompeii recording... soooo good...
  • This troper would go gay for one person and his name is Randy Keith Orton. I mean who wouldn't? Seriously.
    • Is it possible for a straight female to go gay for a guy? If so, I would do it in a heartbeat.
    • Orton? Oh hell yes! That man is absolutely irresistable!! (Although this troper also has a bit of a man-crush on Jeff Hardy. *Sigh* If only he wasnt so modest...)
  • Really, guys? Nobody mentions Jakefraggin'Gyllenhaal?Chesty Jake? P.S., I remember it was stated that he was actually very comfortable with being naked in his own home. There's a thinker.
  • This Troper would totally go gay for Billie Joe Armstrong or John Cho.
  • At a party I was at, a friend of mine and a general acquaintance (both female) got into a very large screaming fight over who was hotter, Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart. My very very straight ex-boyfriend fell squarely on Stewart's side, admitting that, if he had to pick one guy to go gay for, it would be him. (I was on the other side of the argument.)
    • At a time when this troper was wondering if she was a lesbian, watching Stephen Colbert made her realize with absolute certainty that she could only be bisexual at the most (I've actually realized I'm straight, but can still fall prey to some of the examples on the Even The Girls Want Her page.]]
  • Prince! The Artist! I mean, come on! That man makes me faint like a lovestruck schoolgirl.
  • This Troper's father has admitted on having the biggest man-crush on Robert Downey Jr. She promptly applied Brain Bleach and went on with her day.
    • Your father has good taste.
      • Who could blame him?
  • This troper is rather attracted to British diver Tom Daley. It's probably worth mentioning that there's only a year's age gap, before anyone says anything.
  • If David Bowie wanted to make out with me I'd totally do it. I mean, I'm not gay, but it's David Bowie.
  • Taylor Lautner! How has Taylor Lautner not been mentioned yet? He's tan, he's ripped, and those dreamy, dark brown eyes....Ohhhhh! * Faints*
  • This troper says Isaiah Mustafa, the guy who does the old spice commercials.
  • This Troper's friend said that, thanks to that incredible voice, he was "gay when it comes to Mikael Åkerfeldt." And I can totally understand why.
  • Benzaie apparently. I (gay, occasionally Anything That Moves female) only find him keetishly pretty, but my recovering homophobe straight-bordering-on-asexual male friend has admitted that he'd be the one guy he'd do willingly. We also both have occasional dirty thoughts after Spoony, but then again who doesn't?
  • GARRETT.HEDLUND.IS.THE. SECKS.◊ This bisexual female troper has a heterosexual male friend who normally refuses to watch movies with her if it's only because they have a certain actor or so in them. She eventually persuaded him to see Four Brothers, because it was labeled a gangster film. He squee'd along with her every time Garrett entered the scene.
    • If this homosexual male troper recalls correctly, Garrett is even called "gay" in the extended version of that film. And his character is shown to be affected by it. It results in him removing his oh-so sexy tongue piercing. Now that's hot.
    • No credits to his performance in Death Sentence? He is so badass in that movie, you hardly recognize him, compared to earlier performances like Troy and Friday Night Lights. Biker boots, hardcore tattoos, bald with a small beard... And then that smoking hot cigarette.
      • An interview on youtube shows a slight version of this. Notice how despite whatever the interviewer starts talking about, it always comes back to Garrett's good looks.
  • Jeff Goldblum
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt, of course! This troper, after seeing a Youtube vid of his appearance on That 70's Show where he kissed Eric, commented "I don't know what Eric's complaining about, my head would explode from joy if JGL kissed me." Someone then replied "Me too. And I'm a straight man."
  • Bradley Cooper, of The Hangover and The A-Team fame. As one reviewer put it, tickets to The Hangover should've come with smelling salts. In an era of buzz cuts, the man has hair you want to rake your hands through. And that's not even mentioning that chest... The fact that one of his first big roles was a ridiculously explicit gay sex scene in Wet Hot American Summer, well, that doesn't hurt.
  • How the hell has Gerard Butler NOT! BEEN! MENTIONED!? I'm not ashamed to admit, I found myself staring longer than I likely should have been at his rock solid abs in 300. Anybody who tells you they weren't doing the same thing, male/female/gay/bi, is lying.
  • Shame on ALL of you! Before Justin Bieber, who was the heartthrob? Before "Baby," what was thee annoying half-good-but-you-don't-dare-say-it-song? Folks, I present to you JesseMcCartney and Beautiful Soul. And just look at himnow◊.
  • How, HOW has Adam Lambert not been mentioned!? He is EASILY the most attractive man in the business.
  • Dave Matthews. If this troper's brother were gay she's certain he'd be gay for him.
  • [8] has Johnson Viandas, the only character of mine I have ever created that has had a sex scene.
  • Neal Caffrey. This troper was watching an episode of White Collar with a guy friend who had not had much previous exposure to the series. He is straight (okay, one mancrush on Jack Harkness/John Barrowman, but that's to be expected). Throughout the viewing, he kept commenting on Neal's eyes in the close-ups. After it was over, he made the following comment:"His eyes are hypnotic! That's what was running through my head during those scenes . . . Oh God, I'm straight, but you're making me not want to be."
  • My dad has a huge mancrush on Eddie Izzard. An exact quote: "Man, it's too bad I'm straight. Wait, and that he's straight. Aw, damn it all."
  • I can't be the only one who thinks that Michael Bublé is a very handsome man.
  • Taylor Hanson—actually, all three Hanson brothers. They can sing, play instruments, have a charity, and are gorgeous. I can't watch their music videos for fear that I'll be somehow turned on by them.
  • I've always really looked up to guys with goatees and deeper voices, probably because the father of one of my best friends had one, and I thought he was cool. Phil Vassar, Robert Downey Jr. Yup.
  • I'm also in love with Arno Frisch and Michael Pitt, from the 1997 and 2008 versions of Funny Games, respectively. Minus any sexual aspects. "HEY TUBBY, HE'S GOT IT!"
  • Come on guys. Jon Hamm. 'Nuff said.
  • As a heterosexual man, I would bend over and spread my cheeks if Will Smith, Darren Criss, or Neil Patrick Harris asked.
  • Sting was damn good-looking when he was with The Police; hell, all three of them were gorgeous, even Andy Summers, and he was 9-10 years older than the other two.
  • Rory Williams from Doctor Who. I consider myself more or less completely straight, but I genuinely think I'm developing a crush on him. Maybe not one of an outright sexual nature, but there's no denying I am massively attracted to him personalitywise.

Characters from Anime/MangaEdit

  • This Troper has a bad case of Perverse Sexual Lust for Jean of Outlaw Star. I mean, guy gets as many fanservice shots as female characters! All those pretty scars @__@
  • This troper first began to suspect he wasn't heterosexual after watching Duo Maxwell in Gundam Wing, and jumped into full-blown bisexuality after seeing what Trunks and Goten from Dragon Ball looked like when they grew up (the Ho Yay between those two certainly helped; they have Single Target Sexuality for one another written all over themselves).
  • This troper and several other girls online in a certain Bleach forum have discovered that with excessive exposure to very nice looking pictures, Ichigo has this effect on at least one of the few guys there.
    • So, is Bleach the topic here? This troper has a bit of a crush on Ulquiorra and Byakuya. It must be a lethal mix of bishieness, cuteness (especially in fanarts, and especially Ulqui.COME ON!), coolness, badassness, awesome deep-cool-sexy Japanese voices.... Not sure if what I feel towards the two can be considered lust, but I often struggle to keep my eyes away from their pictures because they both are so pretty. Thank you Kubo, for making me question my sexuality.
  • This Troper would go gay for Takamura. He's a bastion of manliness. I have a crush on him! [5]◊
  • This gay troper got his totally, undeniably straight friend to admit that Edward Elric is a fine piece of ass fairly attractive.
    • This troper caught her brother gawking at the tv screen whenever Ed went shirtless or had his hair down. Which was often.
    • Oh, yes. This troper is guilty of pausing the video just to stare, on occasion. ...what, he's pretty!◊ And cute!
  • This troper says Kamina.
    • Get your hands off him! He's mine!
  • This Troper has a friend who wrote 'I'd do Kyon' on his hand. Can't blame him...
  • ...Itachi Uchiha. He turned Iniquitus me bi, and I'm very grateful for that fact.
  • There's a reason why Oda creates so many well-endowed females in his series; to distract the male and lesbian readers from the sheer ruggedness of Zoro Roronoa.
  • Shocked there's no seperate section for the hotties of Axis Powers Hetalia yet. This troper has it bad for England, China, and Switzerland.
    • Don't forget Russia! All want to become one with Russia after all.
  • Seriously? This far down the page and I'm the first person to mention Sebastian? That is a sexy anime butler right there.
  • Thanks to the recent Fate/Zero anime adaptation, it is now impossible to find a Type-MOON thread on 4chan that doesn't derail into several anons gushing over how much they'd love to sleep with Gilgamesh. Critiscism/sceptiscism is usually met with statements like "It's not gay if it's Gilgamesh", or "It's only natural that you'd want to do a king", and so on. Seriously, if Gilgamesh isn't a Memetic Sex God already, he surely is on his way of becoming one.

Characters from Video GamesEdit

  • This mostly-straight male troper is gay for Adult Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
    • This troper is as well, much to the amusement of his girlfriend.
  • This troper was in a chat room once discussing Soul Calibur and most of the guys swooned over Kilik, even the straight ones. (The resident gay male admitted he was the only "CGI-rendered male he'd considered fuckable"). It must be that long, rigid staff of his.
    • I'm more of a Siegfried man, myself...
    • Even if no one has ever, EVER seen his skin, Yoshimitsu is someone this male troper would sleep with if given the chance, just to see what the hell is underneath all that armor. Plus, he has a wonderful personality, I reckon.
    • Personally, this gay male troper would love for Rock to pick him up, carry him off, and show him exactly how he came by that name.
  • This troper still thinks the cutest character in Guilty Gear is Bridget. He doesn't care that Bridget is male.
    • Bridget indeed. Also, Ky Kiske and to a lesser extent Johnny. But mostly Bridget.
  • This troper has Ike plastered over his desktop wallpaper, uses Ike's face for all his avatars/buddy icons, and seriously almost came when he opened the Smash Bros website on August 1st, 2007, to find that Ike was the newest addition to the roster of Smash.
    • While we are on the subject of Fire Emblem, I would like to give a mention to Marth. He is very pretty.
  • This troper is quite surprised that Big Boss isn't on this list. Quite a few of her straight, male friends have admitted that they would tap him. Or Snake. But Big Boss seems more popular.
  • I'll admit it. This troper would indeed drop the Soap for Soap.
  • Leon Kennedy. The figure, the pretty face, the haircut...ThisTroper would tap that.
    • Oh dear god YES! I would let Leon do absolutely horrible things to me!
    • This straight, male troper, after getting a peek at the buffed-up Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 5, may have to buy an XBOX. Or renew his gym membership. Or both. Stupid Sexy Chris.
  • I have an otherwise straight male friend who once admitted he'd go gay for Leonardo DaVinci.
  • Joseph D. Kucan. Damn you, Kane, and your Beard Of Evil!

Characters from Web ComicsEdit

  • This troper finds himself ridiculously attracted to Finland, despite the fact that A) he's a mute who pulls a knife out with little provocation and B) he's an anthropomorphic cartoon country. I am beginning to wonder whether such an attraction is in any way not horribly wrong. The fanservice doesn't help in this regard.

Characters from Western AnimationEdit

Miscellaneous MediaEdit

  • From his childhood, this troper has two: Tommy and David Xanatos. The latter probably planned it to happen anyway.
  • Roihu This Troper, even though he is almost always not attracted to either gender usually, he has some odd crushes.... Among IRL examples, there's Adolf Hitler (I hear he was considered attractive in his time...), Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson, and Brad Pitt. There's a few more in fiction. From Ace Attorney, there's Klavier Gavin, Sex God, Miles Edgeworth (It took me a while there was a Franzi in the art of him shirtless), and Phoenix himself. In Kingdom Hearts, there's Axel and Marluxia. And from Pokemon, there's Red, Blue, Giovanni, Volkner, Lucian, Lance... wow. That's... Just... I didn't expect to be so attracted to so many guys. Yet I'm attracted to so few girls... I may need to think over my sexuality.
  • In a completely unsurprising turn, I would genuinely do anything Big Boss/Naked Snake would be will to. Same for Hugh Laurie, George Clooney, Sean Connery, and David Tennant. And also any man with an English Accent.
    • Just jump ship. You'll be glad you did. I know I was.
  • This troper will admit that, while he fancies himself heterosexual, anime and video game guys always seem to catch his eye as much as the girls. Some fictional dudes he finds particularly hot and screwable include Allen, Gray, Yamamoto, Ichigo, Lavi, Ed, Lelouch, Renji, Suzaku, Snow, Zack, Lloyd, Guy (and Luke after he cuts his hair), Cless, Chester, Tidus, and the whole damn host club minus Honey (Especially Tamaki and the twins). There are also quite a few male actors he would totally hit, including Matt Damon, Cory Monteith, Zach Gilford, Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, David Boreanez, and Nathan Fillion. ...Yeah, and after saying all that, I still consider myself heterosexual. Maybe I'm just extremely prone to Stupid Sexy Flanders?
    • Also, this very same troper has two male friends, both of whom he'll admit he finds very attractive. One of them is a shy, Adorkable, piano-playing Shrinking Violet and a bit of a Cloud Cuckoo Lander, the other is a sweet, cheerful, friendly Keet. Both of them are really freaking cute/hot. They're both also straight, but hey, I wasn't going to pursue either of them anyway. I just have slight guy-crushes on them. Does that make me weird?
    • This troper dares second the entry on Snow, specially when he's coatless and showing his sexy body. Add to that, Squall Leonheart, specially in his new costume for Dissidia Duodecim, where he show off his sexy, strong arms◊.
