** In ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime'' there's a gentleman's club with a Rule 34. In this case, Rule 34 states that women cannot enter the club except at a certain time and date, which leads to members assuming any women they see inside the club outside of that narrow window of time [[WeirdnessCensor must be figments of their imagination]]. The narration then notes that in Susan's case, with her strict schoolteacher outfit and black high heels, this [[FetishFuel could easily be the case]].
