** Of course it is implied, and eventually outright stated, that Emp needs a good snuggling even almost as much as her lover. In fact in later volumes it is shown that future attempts at this trope are made to much lesser effect. She consistently cracks from the isolation ending the gambit prematurely (not that those days aren't hell on earth for Thugboy regardless).

* According to DaveBarry, civilization got started when a smarter-than-average cavewoman conviced the others that they would "look at the men in a certain way" until the men started acting according to their wives' commands, including bringing an end to the surprise-mammoth-eyeball-in-the-mouth joke. Most of his work is based on the "A man is a BigFriendlyDog that can walk upright" dynamic.

* One story in ''FrankenFran'' has the girls of a high school ask Fran for something that will make the boys less horny. Fran obliges, and soon there is no longer any sexual harassment at the school. However, this leads to the boyfriends becoming cold and distant, on the verge of breakup, so the girls ask Fran what she did in the first place: [[spoiler: create a mass of living flesh emitting human hormones that the boys see as a giant pile of naked, inviting women, which they have sex with.]] If there's AnAesop in there, besides the manga's overarching message of "[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Be careful what you wish for]], [[FantasticAesop especially if you use mad science to make it come true]]" it's [[BrokenAesop a really messed-up one]].
