** In another episode, where George is hiring a new secretary. Jerry naturally assumes he's going to hire a beautiful woman, but George tells him that his intention is just the opposite--he ''doesn't'' want to do that, knowing that it will distract him from his work. He is promptly seen telling several gorgeous applicants that despite how qualified they are, "looking at you, I can't even remember my own name and if I hire you, it's only a matter a time before you file a complaint for sexual harassment.", thus telling us that George would be completely incapable of controlling himself around a beautiful woman.

* On ''Series/{{Amen}}'', when Thelma blasts husband Rueben for ogling his father-in-laws gorgeous new girlfriend (played by Creator/HalleBerry, so you really can't blame him), he shrugs and nervously declares, "Sure I did. It's only natural. I'm a man!"

* Cited in a ''Cosmopolitan'' article written by one of their male columnists, who outright begged women not to be angry at their boyfriends/husbands for eyeballing attractive women, as it was "impossible to ''not'' look."

* IncarnationsOfImmortality: when a pair of female characters are turned male, they are barely restrained from ''raping the first woman they see''. They come to the conclusion that all the men they've ever known had almost superhuman levels of self-control for keeping that urge in check. This is par for the course in a lot of Piers Anthony's work - that a man's default mental setting is "RAPE" and only the most noble can resist those urges for reasons other than "fear of getting caught."

* Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali and his infamous [[http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/muslim-leader-blames-women-for-sex-attacks/story-e6frg6nf-1111112419114 "cat and uncovered meat"]] parable wherein he blamed cases of sexual assualt solely on women themselves because of their immodest dressing habits and alluring behavior. Intentionally or not, he basically implied that men shouldn't be expected to exercise any kind of restraint whatsoever.

* In one episode of ''NewsRadio'', Lisa discovers issues of Penthouse Magazine in Dave's desk (who was simply keeping them hidden until he can figure out who left them on his desk). When she frets over why Dave would keep such things around, Beth tells her that a man can get sick if they don't look at porn frequently enough. That's what her boyfriend told her. In the end, they turned out to belong to Beth, who was doing research for a Penthouse letter she was writing that "Starts out about golf, but then it ''meanders''..."

* Deconstructed in the webcomic ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Having believed for years that her father had an affair because men couldn't control their urges, due largely to her [[DoesNotLikeMen misandric]] mother, Susan took the opportunity to [[GenderBender swap genders]] for one evening to test the theory out. Initially, this trope was played straight and Susan was suddenly full of perverted thoughts immediately after transformation (as forewarned by Tedd). However, after being male for several hours, she concluded there was hardly any difference and could no longer blame her father's actions on his gender.
