* AllGaysArePromiscuous: The logic of this trope is that gay men are still ''men'', and thus still only want sex, but "marriage" is only for straight couples. Thus, gay men (and sometimes women) have "free reign" to act as promiscuously as they dare.

* {{Cuckold}}: A man whose woman is having sex with another person(s). The "Bull" (her lover) is almost '''always''' another man [[GirlOnGirlIsHot because otherwise the effect is lessened]]. Her infidelity is played for the humiliation and emasculation of the cuckolded man, the sexual depravity of the wife, and to portray the Bulls as "superior" men. The scenario is used for the titillation of the audience. The cultural implications is that any man who fails to satisfy his wife, and "tame" her, is less of a man while the men that succeed are "real" men.

* LightswitchSurprise: A husband sneaks home after doing some sort of activity his wife approves disapproves of and thinks he's gotten away with it until he hits the light switch and she's standing in wait. Simultaneously reinforces that husbands are untrustworthy/immature liars and cheats, and that wives are nagging shrews.

* WifeHusbandry: A much older man is involved in the raising/development of a young girl he plans to eventually take as a wife. It is widely ridiculed in most 21st century societies because of the inherent power imbalance and called an example of overbearing partiarchy.

* EngagementChallenge: A set of rules, tests or tasks that one must meet in order to prove worthy of a spouse as their prize. The prize is usually a woman, and the challenge is either imposed by the her parents, gender customs or some other group other than the woman herself. Part of the drama involved is that her feelings are irrelevant--she will be forced to both reject a suitor she loves if they fail, and to accept one she hates if they succeed. Can be gender-inverted, but not commonly.

#Bilateral: Men are stronger, tougher, or more blunt, dominant or aggressive '''than women and/or "inferior" men'''. In this form, even if a man shows more passive, submissive, or weaker qualities, he either shows less of them than his female peers, there is a weaker man to juxtapose him (unless he ''is'' the weaker man), or [[CompensatingForSomething he compensates for it in some other area.]]
