* There exists an episode of ''My Wife and Kids'' in which Michael Kyle educates Kady in self-defense, cautioning her of boys who offer to "play doctor" with her. At the end of the episode, one of Kady's classmates approaches her and requests to play doctor with her in the most innocent (and literal) sense of the term... but this doesn't stop Kady, who misinterpreted her father's warnings, from knocking the poor kid to the ground.

* In ''Shuffle'', Mayumi uses this to explain a situation she got in with Rin. Specifically, [[spoiler:she fell and landed with her panties in his face, and when she didn't like his reaction she decided that she'd get revenge by taking his pants off.]] Even though Mayumi was at fault, Rin wound up getting in trouble when Primula told the teacher what Mayumi'd said.

The motive is still "find out what the others look like under their clothes" since the three girls are an Imp, a Satyr and a Centaur respectively and the whole goal was to assure the centaur that her genitals, which she has never seen, don't resemble a cow's.

* Subverted in ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie'' as it's used to parody health insurance. They wonder why they're so concerned about playing doctor and conclude it's out of worry it'd make them cynical. Keep in mind that Ozy is normally a HalfDressedCartoonAnimal anyhow.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. Amy mentions playing quite a few games of doctors and nurses with Rory while they were growing up. There's a LoveTriangle subtext given Amy's long-standing obsession (including sexual) with ''the'' Doctor, whereas Rory now works as a male nurse.
