* ''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.

The corollary to this {{trope}} is that AllMenArePerverts: see also HandsomeLech, ImAManICantHelpIt, and AManIsNotAVirgin.

Compare and contrast with MyGirlIsASlut, BeAWhoreToGetYourMan, and GoodBadGirl, all of which address women's sexuality on the opposite of the spectrum. Also compare & contrast SourPrudes.

The corollary to this {{trope}} is that men are utterly lecherous: see ImAManICantHelpIt; AManIsNotAVirgin; HandsomeLech; and the SpearCounterpart, AllMenArePerverts.

Compare/contrast SourPrudes. Contrast CoyGirlishFlirtPose and AllWomenAreLustful, the other side of the cycle that is slowly becoming more prominent in fiction.

* Part of the premise of {{Pokemon}} fanfic ''Fanfic/OlivineRomance''- Jasmine abhors all notions of sexuality and romance, actively condemning all males as nothing more than lust-crazed animals. Her sexually-progressive friends get fed up with her attitude and devise ways to break her of her prudishness. It's only later in the plot when they think to ask the important question as to ''why'' Jasmine is this way.

In some parts of Fictionland, sex is something women just give to men to shut them up for a while. But women don't ''enjoy'' sex, and they definitely don't desire it. The only reason a fictional woman should ever want sex is if she wants to get [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter pregnant]]. And many times, it is clearly implied that a desirable woman ''[[MyGirlIsNotASlut shouldn't]]'' [[MyGirlIsNotASlut want sex in any way, shape or form]] if she wants to be respected.

The only reason a fictional woman should ever want sex is if she wants to get [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter pregnant]]. Similarly, if the story involves a teenager who resists having sex and prefers to wait until marriage, or just decides that now isn't the right time, you can bet money that the character will be female, and that her decision to say no will be seen as a moral victory rather than a personal choice. And many times, it is clearly implied that a desirable woman ''[[MyGirlIsNotASlut shouldn't]]'' [[MyGirlIsNotASlut want sex in any way, shape or form]] if she wants to be respected.
