AllWomenArePrudes is this trope's corollary and a harmful DoubleStandard, because it leads to women being portrayed as never behaving sexually or even thinking about sex, and to the idea that female sexuality is considered to be abnormal, with NippleAndDimed (or other body parts) applying ''only'' to women.

The tendency for all men within a work of fiction to think primarily with their penises. As such they will be constantly trying to peek up girls' skirts or into the girl's locker room, and will go out of their way (often to absurd lengths) to either catch a glimpse of something naughty, or gain a minuscule chance of doing the deed. Whenever they actually get a peek at a [[IHaveBoobsYouMustObey woman's breasts]], they lose all brain function. This trope is often used as an excuse to hand male characters the IdiotBall. Men will become catatonic, [[DistractedByTheSexy prove unable to think straight]], get massive {{nosebleed}}s, etc. just because an attractive woman is in the room. If a man shows any amount of interest in a woman, it's assumed to be sexual. This trope is so prevalent that if a male character is ''not'' being lecherous around women, he is often assumed to be either gay or a eunuch.

This leads to UnfortunateImplications for any male-female relationship between characters that would normally not involve sex. ''Any'' relationship, be it between family members, at the workplace, or even in a [[VowOfCelibacy celibate]] [[InappropriatelyCloseComrades organization]] has the potential to be treated as perverted; especially when [[SlidingScaleOfLawEnforcement law enforcement]] is involved, regardless of the truth. Then there's the DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale, suggesting that if all men always want to have sex and would never turn it down, woman are considered incapable of raping men. Needless to say, this is all ripe for exploitation by a GenreSavvy villain/ess.

** An entire episode was devoted to man's inability to refrain from masturbation. Then again, Elaine wasn't much better at abstaining (coming in third place behind Jerry and George). [[NotSoDifferent Could it be equal opportunity?]] Or maybe it has something to do with Elaine being OneOfTheBoys.

(Then again, the guys didn't initially want her in on the bet because they are aware of this trope, and only let her in if she paid more.)

* Referenced briefly in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' when Kerrigan (a telepath) meets Jim Raynor for the first time and promptly calls him a pig for thinking about her in a dirty fashion. In the novels, we learn that female ghosts have to deal with this issue all the time, Raynor is just more straightforward.

* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'''s strip [[https://xkcd.com/858/ Milk]] certainly plays into this.



* To varying degrees, almost all all of the males in ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard]] have made sexually charged comments about female characters, or in the extreme cases attempted to sneak peeks of the women in varying states of undress.

** In another episode, a female journalist interviewing President Sheridan points out the button-camera next to her cleavage "so that men will look in the right direction".

Then she has to go and [[VomitDiscretionShot throw up all over that nice dress]]. It's like she's never traveled through quantum space before.

* This is overdone in a season of ''Series/JustShootMe'' in which "Kaylee", a MarySue character, is added to the cast and the three main male characters began falling all over each other to try to date her-- despite that they all work in top positions at a ''Fashion magazine'', where ''supermodels'' practically ooze out of the woodwork-- and with whom Jack (and Elliot) regularly have affairs, and even the geeky Dennis Finch is able to marry a supermodel played by Rebecca Romaijne-Stamos. In contrast, "Kaylee" is rather psychotic, and is fairly average-looking, being short with a heart-shaped face.
