** In that same episode, even though it's now been well established that she enjoys sex, Mike is still very shy, almost to the point of embarrassment about making advances to Sully--"I was always taught that a woman shouldn't ask." Sully assures her that he doesn't think less of her for it.

** Subverted in [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Men At Arms]] and other books following the Watch; Angua likes sex, engages in sex early in a relationship or sometimes in outright casual sex (being a werewolf, relationships rarely last more than a month for her), and at the same time doesn't use sex to string men along or manipulate them. The women of the Disc in general are hardly prudish; [[CoolOldlady Nanny Ogg is a prominent example.]]

* In ''TheGuardians'', this is the opinion of 18th century Henry Grey, Alice's first husband. When Alice expressed disatisfaction with their love life, he scolded her and blamed her parents for letting her learn ideas beneath her station.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TheSimpsons'': While otherwise HappilyMarried, this trope is an ongoing tension in Apu and Manjula's marriage. Apu clearly enjoys sex much more than his wife, who only voluntarily does it when they're trying to get pregnant. The rest of the time, she's very reluctant, if not outright refuses. This becomes a major plot point in an episode where [[spoiler:Apu's sexual frustration drives him to have an affair]].
-->'''Manjula:''' (''upon learning the pregnancy test is negative'') All that sex for nothing!\\
'''Apu:''' (''reluctantly'') Y-yeaaah...

** Played straight with Granny Weatherwax. When told that "everyone is naked under their underwear", she replies that she is not, she wears a second layer of underwear. She doesn't just act like it, Granny ''is'' able to tame unicorns. (Granny is a honorary title, she is not actually anyone's grandmother) She is also scandalized when Magrat wears trousers: "You can see her legs!" Despite her disapproval of nakedness and sex in general, she is not prone to punishing other women for it; as a witch, she has to act as midwife, and will ''not'' let women die in childbirth. It is also implied that she does know a lot about how sex works in theory, she knows about herbal aphrodisiaka and the like. The only instances where she scolds other women for acting indecently are with her fellow witches Nanny and Magrat.

** Which creates a chicken-or-the-egg scenario: Women aren't obsessed with sex because men are obsessed with sex so women can get sex whenever they want. Men are obsessed with sex because women aren't obsessed with sex so men don't know whether or not they'll ever have sex again.

* This trope is [{{invoked|Trope}} by the Party in ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''. Goldstein's book specifies that the Party ideal is that sex should only be carried out for purposes of procreation, and that in the course of the act there should be no pleasure on the part of the woman. They would ideally prefer if men didn't enjoy it either ([[spoiler:O'Brien]] at one point proclaims that the Party's neurosurgeons are currently working on abolishing the orgasm), but at that point an ejaculation is a necessity for procreation.
