* Plenty women on feministic pages love to point out that this is TruthInTelevision as their own opinion often doesn't matter in refusing advances, only being "owned" by another man does, wether he is there or not.

* Happens all the frickin' time in [[Literature/TheBible Genesis]], chapter 20 being a good example. It never ends well, but they keep doing it.
** True, Abraham convinces Sarah to pose as his sister, but the reason was [[InvertedTrope that he himself didn't want to be harmed because of men's attraction to her.]]

* An absolutely brilliant example in ''This Means War'' in which Lauren [[{{FakeoutMakeout}} makes out with FDR]] in which to convince her ex, Steve, that she is perfectly happy without him. FDR builds on her [[{{BlatantLies}} story of her surgeon boyfriend]] by adding that he is a [[{{UptoEleven}} neurosurgeon, head of department at a children's hospital.]] He puts the crowning touch on by calling Steve the wrong name--repeatedly. [[spoiler: The payoff comes when Steve's new fiancée clasps Lauren's hand and tells her she's "so lucky", while Steve looks ''verrry'' uncomfortable.]]
