* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', [[DirtyOldMan Master Roshi]] has been shown drooling over womens' aerobics programs on television...in spite of the fact that it's been shown several times over that he owns pornographic magazines.
** Referenced in an episode of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' where Roshi is in the middle of leering at an aerobics program when Oolong points out that [[TheInternetIsForPorn he can get ACTUAL pornography from the Internet]]. Roshi says that being able to enjoy things like this is what separates the connoisseurs from the mere perverts.

* Many [[AllWomenAreLustful teenage girls and women]] like to look at the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog because of the naked guys in them.

* [[TechnologyMarchesOn Technology eventually marched on]], and beginning in the very late 1980ís new televisions had a chip that recognized the scrambled signal and replaced it with a solid blue screen. (Not really a blue screen of death, but it certainly dashed hopes here and there.). Also some TV sets actually offered a way to ''turn off'' the feature buried deep in the settings screen for those who truly need it -- it's just that no one ever reads the manual to find out about it.
** And it marched on even further, since digital cable and satellite will simply refuse to show a channel that the customer isn't subscribed to.

* MovieBob references this in his review of ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal''. He points out that the reason this movie was such a big deal was, back then, "boobs were really hard to see". Before the internet, if young men wanted access to nudity, they either had to steal Playboys from the least responsible male authority figure or use "tin foil and pie plates to unscramble Cinemax for a couple of seconds".

Times have changed because TheInternetIsForPorn, and anybody with a connection can see as much porn as they like, making this a largely ForgottenTrope. Although Internet censorship is turning this into a CyclicTrope. What has changed is the price. It used to be you not only had to go somewhere to get porn; but it was expensive, too. Nowadays anyone can have a collection that dwarfs ([[AccidentalInnuendo perhaps]] in [[FetishFuel more ways than one]]) their parents'/grandparents' stashes -- in an evening -- and all fitting on an easily-stashed USB key. However, the underage may still have trouble secretly accessing porn if their internet usage is closely monitored by a parent who is tech savvy enough to prevent the workarounds that usually foil more clueless parents, or if they don't own a computer in the first place.

* Mentioned in one of the Literature/{{Discworld}} books about the witches, where they clarify that they do ''not'' perform rituals naked and that detail was included because many books about witchcraft are written by wizards, who are men who don't get out much.

* ''Magazine/SportsIllustrated's'' annual "Body Issue" features various professional athletes doing artistic nude photos. While the actual photos are very tastefully done--genitals and women's nipples are [[SceneryCensor always covered by props or limbs]]--the fact remains that the photo subjects are pro athletes of both sexes and a diverse array of races and body types, all at their physical prime, baring it all for the camera. It's hard ''not'' to...appreciate the artistry at hand.
