[[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.

* Subverted with Nami in ''Manga/OnePiece''. See: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc0KjmZjuXg Happiness Punch.]]. Played straight with Vivi who for some reason doesn't even take it off when she goes into a tub. Also played straight with all the male characters in the men's bath except for Luffy and Usopp who don't bother to cover up. Many chapters later, Robin wears one she has taken a bath with Momonosuke and goes outside to ask for Momonosuke's kimono.

** Mana Kirishima from the ''Girlfriend of Steel'' visual novel one-ups both. After having Shinji swear that he absolutely won't peek, Mana comes out of the bathroom in a towel and, similarly to Asuka, asks if he wants to look before taking off the towel... but unlike Asuka, Mana is not baiting him but is ''[[FullFrontalNudity actually naked]]''. We don't get to see Shinji's reaction, only hear it - but Mana finds it amusing enough to laugh for the rest of the scene as the camera rapidly pans over her still frame, with a corner of the towel censoring her crotch.

** In the manga adaptation, Asuka plays a prank on Shinji -- after threatening death if he perves on her in the shower, Asuka later steps out wearing a towel and asks if he wants to see what's underneath, only to reveal she's put her clothes back on.

* Isaiah Mustafa of the ''Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike'' Old Spice adverts is known for wearing one. It's all he wears in the personalized Youtube response videos, and even mentions that the only way to do community service is in a towel. Subverted in that whenever he changes the scene, he wears new clothes as the situation demands. [[WalkingShirtlessScene But never a shirt.]]

* One scene of Goku bathing in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is censored with the use of a digital towel. They even animate it falling off to the ground as Goku jumps in. That is to say, animated it POORLY. Depends on the dub, because in the Latin-American one it went uncensored.
