* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', "Moon Over Minerva".The ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode "Meet Minerva" start with [[MsFanservice Minerva Mink]] walking out of home with just a towel (and another for the head), causing an HelloNurse reaction (Tex Avery-styled) to males of every species, before bathing naked in a lake. Then again, this trope was applied to Ms. Mink every chance the writers got in the comics.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhUZOCRkPZY This]] Proactiv commercial features Creator/OliviaMunn materializing out of nowhere to the shock of a young man in a towel to tell him that Proactiv will clear up his face quicker than the cream he was about to use. His towel, of course, falls and Munn tries to back out of the room. [[DoubleStandard Now if the genders were reversed...]]

* Subverted in ''[[Literature/{{Foundation}} Prelude to Foundation]]''. Hari is dressed from the waist down. Dors is also wearing a towel from the waist down. One causes a bit more awkwardness.

* Another PG-13 Pixie Trix comics example: ''Webcomic/DangerouslyChloe'' parodies this when Triana confronts Teddy in the girl's locker room after his GenderBender shes's actually wearing three modesty towels: one worn boy-style around her hips, another around her bust and a third thrown over her shoulders like a cape. She's all covered up because she's convinced he's faking and is shocked to discover that he isn't.

* In ''White Noise'' (Not the one that has a trope page) Teige wears his modesty towel female style. He also wears a tight, cropped undershirt reminiscent of a sports bra in his human disguise. Since his human form is just a disguise it is not yet apparent if this is just coincidence or foreshadowing.

[[AmbiguouslyGay Effeminate]] males are sometimes shown wearing their towels in the feminine style [[PlayedForLaughs for comic effect]] or to establish their [[CampGay effem]][[CampStraight inacy]]. Female characters ''can'' wear their [[ModestyTowel modesty towels]] in the masculine way (or a mock-up of that way, which has one towel around the breasts and another wrapped at the waist, [[BareYourMidriff baring the midriff]]), but this is rarer and usually used for extra {{Fanservice}}. A woman will also often wrap a towel turban-style around her hair but anyone with long hair can tell you that's purely practical.
