{{Fanservice}} most often is aimed at the straight male {{Demographic|s}} The assumption is that most heterosexual guys prefer seeing female flesh to seeing other naked guys. Therefore, because MostWritersAreMale, men in sex scenes will be far more covered than women, even during intercourse. The woman may be completely naked (or at least not wearing anything visible; a skintone patch or a cover between legs can be completely hidden from the camera in a way that a penis can't), but the guy will still have his shirt on -- or sometimes only his fly is down. It doesn't matter that with his fly down and his belt off the guy's pants would fall down. It also ignores how painful sex with a metal zipper rubbing up against the genitals could be (although this particular problem could presumably be averted by having the male wear pants with a button-up fly instead). All that matters is seeing that sweet, sweet fanservice with the least amount of {{squick}}.

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' uses this trope less to downplay {{Fanservice}} (as it's [[MsFanservice not shy with]] [[MrFanservice either gender]]) and more to illustrate certain characters' power dynamics. Specifically, while several male characters get a ShirtlessScene, it's telling whose shirt merely opens versus whose shirt comes off completely. [[TheCasanova Touga]], for starters, loses his shirt completely when doing tertiary seduction (often with a convenient pretext) but merely unbuttons it during sex. [[spoiler: And for all the times [[TheVamp Akio]]'s shirt flies open, it never even leaves his shoulders. Contrast this with Anthy, his most frequent "[[UnholyMatrimony partner]]" (read: [[RapeAsDrama victim]]), who's ''always'' nude for the event and [[MoreThanMindControl is definitely]] [[ColdBloodedTorture not enjoying the act]].]]

** The sex scenes in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' are much like this, as Shiki is only completely naked in one such scene (more often shirtless, or simply "unzipped"). Strangely, it's also very briefly ''inverted''; [[spoiler:somehow, [[{{Meido}} Kohaku]] manages sex while wearing a full-length ''kimono''...the first time, at least, though this might be because she has [[RapeAsBackstory far more experience than she wants or needs]]. This trope is in full effect afterwards.]]

* In ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', when [[spoiler:Griffith/Femto]] rapes [[spoiler:Casca]] he appears to do this through his armor. However, since he is a demon it is likely that the "armor" is actually his skin, and he is completely naked, but then that raises the question of why no genitals are visible on him even when he is clearly facing the reader. Considering the level of shape-shifting power apostles seem to have, a retractable penis isn't that much of a stretch of the imagination, but most Apostles seem to love flaunting their BodyHorror and inhuman sexuality as much as possible and wouldn't bother to "retract" even if they could. This example notwithstanding, the series as a whole averts this trope. Penises are frequently shown during sex or rape scenes (which there are an awful lot of), whether they belong to humans, trolls or demon possessed horses (seriously).

* A bit from Creator/RonWhite is that he gets by as an ugly person by wearing a suit ([[SelfDeprecation "You could make a pile of shit look good if you drape an expensive suit over it."]]) and goes on to joke that his wife makes him wear the suit when they have sex.

* The absolute pinnacle of this trope can be seen in the 1981 movie ''Film/{{Excalibur}}'', where Uther Pendragon has a sex scene in ''full plate armor''. At least he removes the codpiece...
* Another extreme example can be seen in the French Canadian made-for-TV movie ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112961/ L'enfant D'eau (1995)]]'' in which, probably because the man was portrayed as mentally incapacitated and the girl as severely underage, ''both'' were fully clothed (except for his [[ShirtlessScene not having a shirt]]) for a "sexual encounter" which viewers and critics were given every reason to believe actually consisted of nothing more than her grinding herself on him a little bit.
* Poked fun at in the first ''Film/AmericanPie'' movie, where the main character was watching porn and was trying to avoid looking at the male porn star while focusing on the woman.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]



* The movie ''Film/SeaOfLove'' is a good example - Ellen Barkin is completely naked, Al Pacino never seems to remove an item of clothing more substantial than his tie.
* ''Film/EnemyAtTheGates'' has an extremely awkward sex scene where the only flesh shown is a brief shot of the woman's butt as she pulls her pants down. All other clothing stays on. This one is {{justified|Trope}} though, since they were in the midst of an army camp in Russia and were trying not to attract any attention, and it was ''cold''.
* Inverted in ''Film/ForgettingSarahMarshall'', where there is more male nudity than female, and the full-frontal male nudity starts in the first 10 minutes of the movie.
* Inverted in ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'', in which we are treated to plenty of naked Creator/CillianMurphy but the lead female keeps her bra on the whole time, and, in fact, requests that the soldiers leave the room so she can change her clothes in private (there was an ulterior motive for this).
* Used to imply a drug-fueled threesome complete with a 69 position in the 2009 ''Film/LandOfTheLost''.
* In ''Film/TakingLives'', there's a sex scene between Creator/AngelinaJolie and Ethan Hawke. Jolie wears only an open robe; Hawke keeps his suit on.



** Averted for laughs in a scene added to the Extended Edition of ''Film/TheHobbitAnUnexpectedJourney'' in which the Dwarves bathe completely nude in one of Rivendell's fountains, much to the consternation of Elrond and his courtiers.
