** Earlier, in the Literature/BookOfExodus, there is an oddly-specific law that states that if two men are fighting, and the wife of one of them attempts to put a stop to it by grabbing one of the fighting men's genitals, her hand is to be cut off as punishment for potentially rendering him sterile. (In this society, having children, [[HeirClubForMen especially sons]], was a big deal, for both men and women. So by jeopardizing his ability to have children (or to have more children), she would be jeopardizing the estate of the man she grabbed, his status in society, and his old age (since elderly people were looked after by their adult children).) Presumably this punishment would also have applied to anyone else who did this, but this passage likely describes a very specific incident.

* In [[Literature/TheBible the Book of Samuel of the Old Testament]], Saul agrees to let David marry his daughter Michal only if David brings him 100 Philistine foreskins. David goes above and beyond by bringing him ''200'' foreskins. Mercifully, some translations point out that he killed them first.

* The [[JapaneseMythology legend of "Kanamara"]] ([[MeaningfulName "steel penis"]]) has a demon taking a liking to a GirlNextDoor, forcibly giving her a VaginaDentata via DemonicPossession, and inflicting this on least two prospect grooms during their respective wedding nights. The [[RuleOfThree third groom]] was a GenreSavvy blacksmith who forged a "dildo" and tricked the demon into biting it instead of his cock, managing to shoo the demon away and get HappilyMarried to the grateful girl. The legend would be the origin of the rather infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanamara_Matsuri "Kanamara Matsuri"]]

* Myth/NorseMythology:
** This trope being PlayedForLaughs is at least OlderThanPrint! The giantess Skaði (or anglicized as Skadi), whose father was killed by the Aesir, goes to them demanding reparations. Among her demands is making her laugh. Loki tries his hand at the task...by tying his testicles to a goat's beard and proceeding to have a tug-of-war contest with the goat. You better believe Skaði couldn't avoid laughing then.

* When Gaia the Earth of Myth/GreekMythology was sick of her husband Uranus the Sky (who was also her son) ramming their children back into her womb because he hated and feared them, she fashioned a sickle and asked her children to avenge her. The youngest and boldest one, Cronus, then took the sickle, and ''castrated his father'' when Uranus let his guard down. Uranus then cursed them with the name "Titans", or "Over-reachers".
* The Greeks may have gotten this story from the earlier Hittite myth, in which Kumarbi ''bites off'' the testicles of the sky god Anu and [[MisterSeahorse gets pregnant from them.]]
* Having murdered his brother Osiris, the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian]] deity Set dismembered the corpse. This included the severing of Osiris's penis, which was swallowed by a fish before Isis could find it and incorporate it into her late husband's reassembled body.
