* Literature/TheBible: When Joseph the the Literature/BookOfGenesis is the slave of the Egyptian Potiphar, a captain in the royal guard, Potiphar's wife wants him to sleep with her. Joseph runs away from her, but the wife tries to hold him back and tears off his garment. She immediately calls for help and claims that Joseph has assaulted her (as she now needs a cover-up that explains how she comes by Joseph's garment). Potiphar believes his wife and has Joseph thrown into prison.

* In Seneca's tragedy ''Phaedra'', Phaedra, wife of Theseus, accuses her stepson Hippolytus of rape after he has spurned her. Theseus calls on his father Neptune to punish Hippolytus, and Neptune causes Hippolytus to be dragged to death by his own chariot-horses. Phaedra mourns for Hippolytus and admits her accusation was false, then commits suicide. Not to be confused with Euripides' ''Hippolytus'', in which Phaedra hangs herself right away, and Theseus just misunderstands the suicide note.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', "Wacky Molestation Adventure." The boys, upset at their parents' being too strict, call the police on their parents saying they "molestered" them. The parents are taken away. Soon there are no adults at all in South Park and they descend into a ''ChildrenOfTheCorn''-esque society.

* In Literature/TheBible, Potiphar's wife tries to seduce Joseph but he refuses. So she tells her husband that Joseph has raped her and he's imprisoned. Similar tales appear in many other old myths and tales, usually when a powerful but married woman tries to seduce a hero but is rejected.

* Literature/TheQuran (surah 12): When Yusuf (= Joseph in the Bible) is the slave of a rich Egyptian (only referred to as Al-´Aziz, "Mighty One"), the wife of his master
tries to seduce Joseph but he refuses. So him. Yusuf refuses her and tries to run away, and as the wife is trying to hold him back, she tells her rends his shirt from the back. Her husband comes by and she explains the situation as Yusuf trying to assault her. However, 'Aziz does not believe her, because he notices that Joseph has raped her and he's imprisoned. Similar tales appear in many Yusuf's shirt is torn from the back, not from the front. As a result, 'Aziz' wife is mocked by the other old myths women of the city for being attracted to a slave. She retaliates by inviting the other women to their house so they can see Yusuf themselves, with the effect that all of them now want Yusuf. Yusuf again rejects them and tales, usually when is eventually thrown into prison on account of the scorned women (although the Quran does not say under what accusation he is imprisoned). More so than the Biblical account, the Quran is somewhat sympathetic to 'Aziz' wife because it makes clear that Yusuf is incomparably beautiful, and that Yusuf is also attracted to her in turn and rejects her only because adultery is a powerful but married woman sin. Yusuf even prays to be thrown into prison because he fears otherwise he might eventually give in to seduction.
* In Myth/ClassicalMythology, Proetus, King of Tiryns, takes in Bellerophon in his exile; Proetus' wife takes a shine to him and
tries to seduce him. When Bellerophon refuses, she tells Proetus that Bellerophon has tried to rape her. Proetus, not wanting to take revenge openly because of SacredHospitality, sends Bellerophon on a hero but is rejected.
mission to his friend King Iobates [[PleaseShootTheMessenger with a letter that asks Iobates to kill Bellerophon.]]

* ''Film/TheLifeOfDavidGale'': One of the reasons David loses his job as a college professor. A female student who was failing his course for not showing up for classes later meets him at a party, seduces him, and then collects his semen so she can file rape charges against him. She doesn't even follow up on them since she has already left the country before it can go to trial, she just wanted to tarnish his reputation. It also makes him more plausible as a rapist and murderer later than otherwise he might be.

* In ''Series/{{CSI NY}}'', the rapist who was let off after Jo reported a fellow FBI agent for botching evidence turns up in New York and a woman comes forward to say she was raped by him. However, her story falls apart when Lindsay's tests reveal that the levels of GHB in her system are still so high that she'd be dead if she ingested the levels she was supposed to have at the time she was raped. Eventually, it is revealed that the senator whose daughter was the victim of Jo's FBI case hired the woman to frame the guy and try to get him arrested. When it went bad, the senator killed her, hoping to frame the guy for murder, but that failed as well.
