* Deconstructed in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDtisgnSZCc blisteringly ironic routine]] by the Dutch comedian Hans Teeuwen. He starts out by talking about how much respect he has for women: for their beauty, their strength, their grace, their wisdom, etc., and how he firmly believes that women are much better than men, who are competitive and jealous, whereas women are "givers". From there, he argues that since women have so much power, "with great power comes great responsibility", and a woman shouldn't just reveal her beauty to just anyone, only to her husband. From here, he proceeds by logical steps to arguing that, since a real woman's ultimate pleasure lies in giving pleasure to her man and [[AllWomenArePrudes not in experiencing it herself]], no real woman needs a clitoris:

[''Beat''] Snip, snip.[[note]]Teeuwen is noted for presenting the most outrageous arguments as if they were his own; the very feminist UK comedian Bridget Christie regards him as her [[https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2015/feb/11/bridget-christie-hans-teeuwen-comedy-hero comedy hero]][[/note]]

* In ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', John the Savage tries to idealize Lenina as a Madonna in spite of her coming from a FreeLoveFuture, which causes him to spurn her sexual advances and flagellate himself for having impure thoughts about her. It ends ''very'' badly for both of them when John's self-loathing efforts to cleanse himself of all sexual thoughts of Lenina result in an orgy that kills her and drives him to suicide.

** Further back, still, in the BookOfGenesis, where Tamar disguises herself as a shrine prostitute to sleep with her former father-in-law and becomes pregnant by him. At first, Judah sentences her to be burned to death for engaging in illicit sex… but she sends a messenger with the cord and seal that she had taken as "collateral," saying that the man who owns them is the father. Judah recognizes the {{MacGuffin}}s as his, and [[LastMinuteReprieve spares Tamar's life.]] He even says that she is more righteous than he is, because she had done her duty (perpetuating the lineage of her deceased husband) and Judah had not (he married his youngest son Shelah off to someone else, even though [[ValuesDissonance Shelah was supposed to marry Tamar to provide for her and father children on his dead brother's behalf]].) From then on, Tamar lives in Judah's household, raises the twins born from their sexual act and he provides for her and the kids as he would an actual wife (although they didn't have sex again.)

* In ''Series/{{Taxi}}'' Louie lampshades why he is unable to form a sexual relationship with [[RealLifeRelative Zena]], even though she wants him to. "I was brought up that there are the nice girls, and then there are the girls you have fun with." He can't even go into her bedroom without having a mental crisis.
