Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DogDays'' can come off as downright bipolar sometimes. Seemingly the staff can't decide what they want their focus to be: the light-hearted adventures in a world where basically everyone is good-hearted and friendly, or scads of ClothingDamage (which often happens to characters who are middle schoolers) and {{Gainaxing}}. Fans generally prefer the first season to the second and third, which ramp up the fanservice and introduce a character who peeps and steals underwear (or as one reviewer called him, "the only character in the series who knows what a vagina is").

* This is the reason why Palcomix, a website known for often explicit pornographic comics usually based off of cartoon shows or video games (''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' especially), has such a large LoveItOrHateIt reputation in certain internet circles. While the art is [[AwesomeArt actually very good]], few readers tend to get turned off due to the [[YouMakeMeSic grammar errors]], [[IdiotPlot nonsensical plotlines]], the [[UncannyValley way the characters are drawn]], or the porn just being flat-out unappealing.

* In-universe example in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' with Robin, who's shown to have a few sexual kinks that are turnoffs for her partners. Her invitation for a famous hockey player to give her [[NoodleIncident an obscure sex act called the Old King Clancy]] had him instantly lose interest in her, and one of her boyfriends broke up with her for [[NoodleIncident a bedroom thing]] that made him uncomfortable. Ted and Barney quickly recognize it and admit it's a valid reason to break up with her, [[EvenEvilHasStandards despite Barney being a few symptoms short of]] [[LovableSexManiac a sex addiction]].

Sometimes [[{{Fanservice}} sexy things]] happen in a show. Sometimes they're [[FetishFuel not entirely intended that way]], but end up being made out as such.

Fetish Retardant applies only when the unsexiness is entirely unintended, perhaps making something like a sexual {{Narm}} moment. If the retarding is something added in ''on purpose'' to keep the scene from being sexy, that's FanDisservice ([[FetishFuel though this can backfire spectacularly]]).

* In ''Film/DieAnotherDay'''s opening theme, at one point Music/{{Madonna}} moans in a seductive, sexy tone... ''"UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud"''. Anything else in that tone of voice could've been FetishFuel, but invoking Sigmund Freud, [[CaptainObvious not so much]].

* ''Literature/TheWhiteAbacus'' by Damien Broderick falls into this category from apparent AuthorAppeal. It would seem Broderick thinks a woman with a rose growing out of her shoulder is FetishFuel rather than BodyHorror.

* The anthropomorphization of the FetishFuel Wiki comes across as trying.

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' the extremely attractive Vaitiare Bandera has a fun frontal nude scene. Great... up until a Goa'uld symbiont burrows its way into her skull through the back of her neck.

-->'''Tycho:'''Where are the ''bipedal crustaceans'' in this calculation? The swirling, aroused gasses? The lonely, sentient space station whose hermetic bulkheads hold secret clusters of erotic delights, provided your character has both the skills and equipment? Carpe astrum, you Goddamned backwater clowns. There must be an universe of thrilling, dangerous, sometimes ''razor sharp'' genitalia that slavers beyond the Horsehead Nebula.

* Marian, the DamselInDistress in most of the ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' games, who is usually a good-looking woman ([[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/arcade/a/doubled.htm as seen in the original arcade game]] and [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/nes/a/dd2.htm the second NES game]]), got whacked with the ugly stick in the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis [[PortingDisaster port]] by Accolade. The panty shots were still kept for the Genesis version, but they end up being more disturbing than sexy because of the way she looks ([[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/genesis/a/dd.htm see here]]).

* ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'': Spines don't [[http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/6/4/6/113646_v1.jpg bend that way]]! To others, Starfire's extreme emotional detachment towards her sexual partners, with the implication that this is meant to be portrayed for titillation rather than drama, is [[{{Squick}} more than a little disturbing]]. Likewise, Starfire's MonochromaticEyes, combined with her expressions and apparent disinterest make her look [[UncannyValley more than a little dead]].
