* Brothel madam Xaviera Hollander writes in her memoir ''The Happy Hooker'' that the wives of her married clients are often the ones to blame and that a wife who doesn't like sex anymore should allow her husband to see a prostitute.

* 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."

* Invoked but consistently averted in VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}. While Tomoya is often called out on his apparently obvious lecherous thoughts, given the opportunity he always acts in a gentlemanly manner. He's given rather clear opportunities several times in Tomoyo's route, one with Ryou in Kyou's route and either Kyou or Tomoyo when locked in the storage locker. He doesn't even sleep with Nagisa for several months after getting ''married'' despite his apparently perverted nature.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' This comes up in the quest, "The Siren's Deception". The player has to track down a gang of female thieves who use this trope and lure men out to remote locations, promising them sex, and then rob them. Additionally, part of the quest requires you to get information from Gogan, their latest victim, who's married. He uses this as his excuse. However, [[spoiler: it turns out he's an undercover cop, so may not have been a victim at all]]

* Some wives of rock stars eg. Donna D'Errico have gotten little sympathy from fans when the husbands cheats because rock stars get so many opportunities that you should expect they will cheat (like most women don't get plenty of opportunities to cheat).
* Brothel madam Xaviera Hollander writes in her memoir ''The Happy Hooker'' that the wives of her married clients are often the ones to blame and that a wife who doesn't like sex anymore should allow her husband to see a prostitute.
* The Daily Record columnist Just Joan says that women who have gone off sex have only themselves to blame if their men stray.

Intentionally or not, he basically implied that men shouldn't be expected to exercise any kind of restraint whatsoever.

* While not exactly an ''explicit'' situation, one cutscene from ''{{Persona 3}}'' where Junpei comments about offering as-yet-unseen new teammate Fuuka Yamagishi "private lessons" invokes this trope after Yukari displays disgust at the notion:

The logical extremity of AManIsNotAVirgin, and the masculine equivalent of the TheUnfairSex. This trope features a man caught in a sexually compromising situation. If he is unmarried, not seeing anyone, or involved with a partner who, at the moment, is either unwilling or unable to grant him sexual satisfaction, he can provide the following excuse (though typically not put quite so articulately):

* ''Literature/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."
