* Lieschen in ''Music/SchweigtStillePlaudertNicht'' employs a pre-marital variation, secretly telling the potential suitors her father finds that she will only marry them if they allow her to [[MustHaveCaffeine drink coffee]], in order to get around her promise to him to give it up in exchanging for her father finding her one.

* ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'': Jezebel Karup denies sex to her husband Hans because she privately despises him while playing the "good wife" in public. She also carries on an affair with his associate Huk just to humiliate him further. There's a salient reason for this: [[spoiler:she's actually his daughter.]]

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/TheBernieMacShow'', Bernie becomes very possessive once his nieces and nephew move in, only allowing them to drink the dregs of the household's orange juice, and so on. His wife, Wanda, gives him a stern talking-to, and forbids him from having sex with her until he treats the children more hospitably.

* On Series/NewGirl, when Jess tries to bond with Coach by being a Pistons fan, Nick objects based on the rivalry with his team, the Bulls. When she refuses to give up her scheme, he declares he's "turning off the tap". Things escalate between them until she retaliates by declaring she's turning off ''her'' tap. In the end, they both cave simultaneously, him in a Pistons' jersey, her in a Bulls'.
* Helen once tried this on Stanley on ''ThreesCompany''. Of course, Stanley being who he is, it didn't work.

* No Sugar Tonight by the Guess Who is an example of this, apparently inspired by an actual conversation between a would-be mugger and his partner when she caught him trying to mug a member of the band.

* Something similar happened in relation to the 2010 UK general election.
