* The entire premise of the {{Yaoi}} webcomic ''14 Nights'' seems to be to cure one of its main characters of this. The comic has [[ItGetsBetter gotten better]] about this lately, placing said character squarely in this trope. He genuinely desires a sexual relationship with his boyfriend, but his mind goes to [[FanDisservice very]] [[FetishRetardant ugly]] [[{{Squick}} places]] all too easily. Disassociating sex from {{Squick}} is his much-desired endgame.

** For context, in the episode it is revealed that [[spoiler: when Liz was young, she was riding her rollerskates around the house, when she needed to use the restroom. She tried to use the restroom with her skates still on, but lost her balance and her mother found her on the floor with her underwear down covered in a {{Music/TomJones}} poster. Assuming [[ADateWithRosiePalms the worst]], her mother tore down all the posters of the men she liked in her room, leading Liz to proclaim that "Sex makes the people go away!"]]
