* The 1975 Music/AliceCooper song "The Black Widow" depicts this with a opening spoken-word part (by VincentPrice) carefully describing the female black widow spider's lethality and mating habits. Unfortunately, the song itself [[BrokenAesop negates this lesson]] both by making the spider character male and by depicting him as a DepravedBisexual.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'' had the case of Calpurnia Church, who had numerous husbands and other relations murdered after [[InsuranceFraud taking out life insurance]]. Her family, including her latest husband, were well aware of this, but they were convinced she had voodoo powers and could not be stopped. The case was loosely based on the real case of Geraldine Parrish, which Creator/DavidSimon had written about in his book ''Homicide: A Year On the Killing Streets''.

* A commercial for the ''New Yorker'' has the admittedly sexy widow dress in a variety of erotic lingerie in order to induce a heart attack in her elderly victim, and then casually lean out a balcony sipping champagne after he does so. (For obvious reasons, it was banned.)

* The band My X was the main attraction at Ride/BuschGardens' Howl-O-Scream 2010. It used to be called XY, but female lead Sylvie took over the band and renamed it when the male lead/her ([[spoiler: apparently abusive]]) boyfriend [[spoiler: mysteriously vanished]]. Now Sylvie spends her nights picking out guys from the concert crowd, hooking up with them backstage, and bringing them to her dressing room [[spoiler: where she hangs them up, chops off their fingers, and kills them]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjEJbmAuIWw Check out their signature song.]] (My X was actually an unsigned band from Tampa; they renamed the band and wrote three new songs for the park's Halloween special.)

* Poison Ivy takes this UpToEleven in an epsidoe of ''''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. She figures, why seduce one billionaire herself when she can create a small squad of female plant clones, have them seduce ''dozens'' of rich bachelors at once, then have said clones lead them to their doom upon a yacht that she sinks? Through her clones, she'd inherit ''mulitiple'' fortunes. Her only flaw here - Bruce Wayne is one of her targets.
