* ''All The Right Moves'' is known - thanks partially to ''{{Film/Scream 1996}}'' - as the movie where you can catch a brief glimpse of Tom Cruise's penis if you pause at the right time.



* ''{{Literature/Atonement}}'' is a critically acclaimed period drama that turned Creator/SaoirseRonan into a star. Yet in almost all interviews promoting it, Keira Knightley was asked about her passionate sex scene with Creator/JamesMcAvoy up against the bookcase. They're both fully clothed for the scene by the way.



* ''Film/TheHole'' is a British thriller from 2001 that gets a lot of attention from the fact that Creator/KeiraKnightley flashes her boobs for two seconds. [[JailBait She was fifteen at the time]].



* ''Film/MonstersBall'' is largely remembered because of Creator/HalleBerry's steamy sex scene, but it was good enough on its own merits to win her an Oscar. Though the scene in question is known equally for the {{narm}} attached to it ([[MemeticMutation "Make me feel GGGRRRRRRD!"]])

* Wrestling/{{Melina}} subverts this. She could wrestle very well and eventually became WWE's second most popular Diva (behind Mickie James), but most fans these days remember her for two things: being Wrestling/JohnMorrison's girlfriend and doing splits on the ring apron. She was known purely for Fanservice in her valet days but has a large pool of fans for her wrestling too.

* Wrestling/{{Melina}} subverts plays with this. She could debuted as a MsFanservice valet to MNM and many fans assumed she was yet another Diva Search girl - not realising she'd actually trained to wrestle very well and on the indies. She eventually broke out on her own and became WWE's second most popular Diva (behind Mickie James), but most fans these days remember a 3-time Women's Champion - and is beloved for her for two things: being Wrestling/JohnMorrison's girlfriend and doing wrestling by many fans. But the one thing everyone remembers about her is that she does the splits on the ring apron. She was known purely for Fanservice in her valet days but has a large pool of fans apron for her wrestling too.entrance.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/InnerWorkings'', a short film airing alongside ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', became famous overnight for the character of the cute sunglasses salesgirl the protagonist is infatuated with and her extremely generous set of HartmanHips.


Added DiffLines:

* Creator/ArielWinter is well known for [[BuxomIsBetter being very well endowed]] at a young age, to the point where she got a breast reduction and is ''still'' quite curvy, and posting [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl lots of sexy Instagram photos]]. Her most famous roles are [[Series/ModernFamily a modest, geeky teenage girl]] and [[WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst a fairytale princess on a show for toddlers]] by the way.

** Comicbook/{{Psylocke}}. Even leaving aside her years in Marvel UK (pilot, secret agent, dead fiance, killed her brother's EvilTwin when he tried to rape her...), remember those years she spent as the team's primary {{telepath|y}}? How about those two times she [[{{Badass}} took on Sabretooth with nothing but her psychic powers and won?]] ... Nothing? Okay, how about that time she got turned into a scantily-clad Asian babe and spent years doing nothing but pose in a thong?

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E6TheCavesOfAndrozani "The Caves of Androzani"]] features the regeneration from Fifth to Sixth and actually has the Fifth Doctor being {{badass}}. The memory? The excellent view of Peri's trembling cleavage while she's holding the regenerating Doctor.

* A weird example when it comes to ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'', in that this isn't a fan's, but a ''writer'''s point of view. Most fans remember [[BigBad Aggregor]] as a MagnificentBastard and [[{{Badass}} the most competent villain in the show]] [[spoiler:(if a bit of an AntiClimaxBoss toward the end)]]. When asked about his opinion of the character and the reason he doesn't want to bring him back in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', however, Derrick J. Wyatt's answer usually is to complain about the fact the character ''[[WalkingShirtlessScene doesn't wear a shirt]]''.

* As a general statement, especially in the last 5 years or so as explicit sex scenes and nudity has become increasingly ubiquitous with series made for premium cable, streaming and post-watershed airing on British networks, there are many shows for which the media has focused almost exclusively on sex scenes and nudity, regardless of any artistic merit the show may have and regardless of whether the sexual content is gratuitous or actually artistically defensible.

** David's affair with Bathsheba gets more attention than most of the other events of his reign, probably because it includes the account of David [[ThePeepingTom watching Bathsheba bathing on the roof]] (setting up the UriahGambit).

* Mary Magdalene's status as "Prostitute" is [[PopularHistory firmly ingrained in descriptions of her]], although not in Literature/TheBible. Compare how often Matthew's old job of "Tax Collector" is referred to.
** When "David danced before the [[AC:Lord]], what was he wearing? If you said he was naked, congratulations, you were too caught up in the titillating idea that he was naked to read what it says he ''was'' wearing[[note]]2 Samuel 6:14 says "a linen ephod"; 1 Chronicles 15:27 agrees and also says "a robe of fine linen", and neither precludes the possibility that he was wearing more[[/note]].
* There are entire books of the Bible (ironically, all of them in the sterner and more morally righteous Old Testament) that seem to be nothing but ShamefulStrip, SlutShaming, and pornographic love poetry, which will be all that horny teenagers remember about them if they're forced to read them in Christian school.

* The UsefulNotes/FurryFandom has a very similar case to the above mentioned Brony fandom, due to the abundance of {{yiff}} artwork on the internet. It gets to the point where the furry fandom is seen as being consisted entirely of furry porn.

* Almost any artist that has drawn porn or FetishFuel ends up with this eventually. Most professional online artists make an (often private) alternate account for their pornographic/fetish-fueled works in hopes to avert this.
