Age disparity in same-sex male relationships was even more historically common than age similarity in such relationships.

(Such relationships were practised in Ancient Greece, pre-Modern Japan, Melanesia, Islamic lands and Renaissance Italy.) Monarchs have traditionally exercised the freedom to choose younger spouses; Henry VIII, for instance, chose women far younger than himself as some of his wives, and a number of female monarchs have chosen younger consorts.

Sultans from the Middle-East maintained entire harems of much younger women.
