* On Creator/MargaretCho's short-lived sitcom ''All-American Girl'', her teenage character was written to ''always'' turn down sex from her love interests, even though the show is based on Margaret's real life and she has stated that she personally would have said yes in many of the scenes where her character said no. This was one of her biggest bones of contention with the producers, since Margaret is a proud EthicalSlut who has always advocated for healthy responsible sexual practices and reproductive choice.

* Sets off the plot of the film ''Film/{{Extract}}'', though the marriage depicted there has more problems than incompatible sex drives.

* Sets off the plot of the film ''Film/{{Extract}}'', though [[spoiler: then inverted when the wife was entirely willing to have a great deal of sex with the pool boy.]] Lack of sex in the marriage depicted there has more problems than incompatible sex drives.was really the symptom of deeper problems.

* Played with in ''How Few Remain'', the first book in the ''Literature/{{Timeline 191}}'' series by Harry Turtledove. During the [[FetishRetardant much maligned]] Samuel Clemens sex scene, he reflects to himself that his wife seems to genuinely enjoy sex, despite everything he's been told to the contrary.

He doesn't go so far as to actually ask her opinion of sex, however.

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]]. 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.]]
