* While ''Series/GameOfThrones'' rarely shies away from nudity in any situation, Joffrey's reaction to Tyrion's "name-day gift" is singularly distressing. His treatment of the two women is taken far beyond [[FetishRetardant sadism]].
** Also Jaime in the Harrenhal baths with Brienne. Now normally Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is pretty pleasant to look at [[MrFanservice both in universe and out]], but not when he's utterly filthy from weeks on the road and being literally pushed face first into shit, [[spoiler:missing a hand]] and utterly depressed and broken while deliriously recounting the worst moments of his life. The effect isn't so much horror as with Joffrey above as it is [[TearJerker utterly heartbreaking]].

Added DiffLines:

** Daenerys' attempted assassin is forced to walk naked behind her horse until he collapses.
** Grand Maester Pycelle exercising in a see-through bed gown in "Fire and Blood".
** Theon flirts with and gropes a girl on Pyke who turns out to be his sister.
** Beric Dondarrion's ShirtlessScene is entirely devoted to recounting his innumerable nasty scars.
** The sex scene between Jaime and Cersei in "Breaker of Chains." Both are played by attractive people but their characters are twins, they are right next to their son's dead body, and consent is... questionable to say the least.
** Craster's daughter-wives display plenty of skin in "Oathkeeper" but it's not even slightly sexy since most are being raped and beaten.
** Margaery's attempted seduction of Tommen is rendered creepy by the age difference.
** The High Septon, a fat old man, being made to walk naked through the streets while his hands are caned every time he tries to cover himself.
** Cersei's nude walk of shame in "Mother's Mercy" as the citizens of King's Landing scream at her and pelt her with garbage and excrement is not very sexy.

* ''Series/ATouchOfCloth'': Series 2 explicitly parodies this by replacing the female lead with an obese man for a scene in which she gets out of bed naked.

* ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' doesn't stint of the Fanservice from its lead characters[[note]]alright, not much Aria[[/note]], not least from Hanna. For instance the moment Hanna is a T-shirt and panties being sprayed with water. [[spoiler: So she can be tortured with a cattle prod by her kidnapper Elliott. And we ''do'' get to see the evidence later on.]]

* Played for laughs, but also very effectively, in a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch called "The Librarian", in which Creator/MargotRobbie played a sexy high school librarian. On being told that one of them fancies her, she takes off her glasses, lets down her hair and starts flicking it around...whereupon her hair starts to fall out. She then peels a banana and eats the peel, sucks a lollipop and eats the whole thing, takes out her false teeth and reveals that she has ScaryTeeth, pulls her shirt up to show that her midriff has tattoos of Haley Joel Osment, goes up to another sexy librarian and gives her a NeckSnap and...it just gets worse from there.

** And in the episode "The Confession". The sight of the normally gorgeous JamieBamber lying on a bed, wearing nothing but boxer shorts (he was playing the PatientOfTheWeek), is equally severely undercut by the fact that ''his skin is peeling off''.

* Creator/JamieBamber seems to like teasing his adoring fans by occasionally playing this out. Aside from the abovementioned weight gain in BSG and skin-peeling disease in Series/{{House}}, he was slathered with zombie makeup for his guest appearance on GhostWhisperer, and admits that the scene in ''The Smoke'' where his character [[spoiler: pulls down his pants to reveal the horrific burn scars on his legs and genitals]] is what made him decide to take on the role.

** Holosuite. Kira's body. We pan up, we pan up and... her head has been replaced with [[spoiler:Quark's (The resident big-headed ugly (male) alien).]] This is actually in-universe fan disservice as well - a creepy guy paid Quark very well to have Kira's figure digitized into the holosuite for... unsavory purposes. Kira found out about it. It's her revenge.
** Deep Space Nine also had an episode where [[HotForPreacher Vedek Bareil]] is having a surreal vision and is hugged from behind by who he thinks is Kira ... only to turn around and see a naked Ky Winn. What is seen cannot be unseen.
** Then there's the episode "Profit and Lace" where Quark [[spoiler:undergoes an EasySexChange to seal a business deal instead of his mother.]]

** A RunningGag in season 4 involves Morello and Suzanne playing detective to find out who's the shower pooper who's been leaving "presents" in the shower when they're on cleaning duty. They describe how the person would squat while taking a shower.
** Piper must shower handcuffed in the SHU with a guard watching in season 1's "Fucksgiving" with her clearly traumatized from her time in the SHU.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/QuantumLeap'' episode "Deliver Us from Evil" featured Sam's DistaffCounterpart Alia (played by Renée Coleman) stripping down to a slip as she seduces Sam. The sexiness vanishes when she claws her own neck and begins shrieking like a banshee in an effort to frame Sam for assault.

** The aged Doctor crawling out of his tent like a dog in "Last Of The Time Lords".
** During the 5th Doctor era, the Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine said in one issue they received loads of letters from people wanting a poster of Nyssa and Tegan. So in one issue they finally dug one out of them-looking 100 years older (having been aged in the episode Mawdryn Undead). An issue a couple of decades later commented that fans probably weren't happy about that.
** The Third Doctor has a ShowerScene in his ''first serial.'' ItMakesSenseInContext, but what possessed the writers into thinking most people ''wanted'' to see Jon Pertwee naked?
*** YMMV- most of the Classic Who fandom is very happy about that scene. If there's anything disservice-y about it, it's that ridiculous shower cap.
** In the MadeForTVMovie, Eight [[ShirtlessScene bares his chest]] [[MrFanservice three times]]. In the second one, he's screaming with pain and horror as he pulls a bloody probe out of his chest, complete with rather startling icky wet sound effect. His nipple is also in the ridiculously-zoomed-in shot of the probe.
** The Ninth Doctor winds up shirtless briefly in "Dalek", but any enjoyment one could find in the scene dies instantly because he was stripped so he could be medically tortured.



** The Sixth Doctor, then a devilishly handsome young man, ShowingOffTheNewBody with lots of supermodel poses and vampy smouldering. Of course, he does it in just the most ''[[SensoryAbuse ghastly]]'' PrimaryColorChampion ImpossiblyTackyClothes, under the apparent conviction that it makes him a SharpDressedMan. All PlayedForLaughs.
** The Fourth Doctor being tied up and tortured in "The Deadly Assassin". If he was shirtless it could be sexy, if he was fully covered it would just be asexual, but instead there is flesh on display and it's a deliberately unflattering amount of pasty sides where his shirt has ridden up. It's just sexual enough to be ridiculously uncomfortable.
** Any time in the classic series we see the Doctor in his underwear. An unconventionally handsome, mature, charismatic HumanAlien in AwesomeAnachronisticApparel? Sexy. The Awesome Anachronistic Underwear that goes with the Awesome Anachronistic Apparel? Not as sexy. The Fourth Doctor probably has the sexiest and it's Victorian drawstring long-johns and a vest, which is hardly going to get any pulses racing. The Second Doctor's is probably the worst - it's a union suit.
