* Averted in ''Literature/GuardiansOfTheFlame''. Doria in her BackStory caught an STD, was too embarassed to see a doctor about it and the resulting infection left her sterile. And with issues about sex. Subsequent brutal [[RapeAsDrama rape]] does not help, either.

** The Quartermaster and his Quarter-sister from ''WesternAnimation/CampCamp'' both already have every single possible STD, and so don't need to worry about catching any more.

*''Anime/{{Dragon Ball Z}}'' starts off with introducing Goku and Chi-Chi's firstborn son Gohan. Raditz crashes the party and reveals Goku is his brother and they are both saiyans, a warrior race from planet Vegeta, but it's ok. Crossbred Gohan was able to marry and have a daughter Pan, who was also able to have children who were able to have children. Another character, Bulma, married another saiyan and mothered a similar family tree STD free! It's not like a space hominin should transmit and/or contract some sort of plague from humans anyway!

* Early rap pioneer Music/KoolMoeDee is considered to be the very first rapper to avert the trope with his self titled album's opener, "Go See The Doctor":
--> ''Three days later...\\
I woke up fussin', yellin' and cussin'\\
Drip-drip-drippin' and puss-puss-pussin'\\
I went to the bathroom and said\\
"Mama mia, Imma ''kill'' that girl next time I see her!"''
** As well as "Dumb Dick", from the same album:
--> ''When it came to girls, he didn't care where he went\\
He'd hound em like a dog, so we used to say "fetch!"\\
And it was no tellin what he would catch\\
He was in the doctor's office almost every week\\
He became so popular, everybody'd speak\\
When he walked in they'd say (Hi Rick)\\
And when he passed by, they'd say (Dumb Dick)''
* Music/SlickRick's track "Indian Girl (An Adult Story) does a twist on this trope at the end of the song: [[spoiler:After having spent the entire song trying (and succeeding) to get into an Indian girl's pants, Davy Crockett learns at the end that she had genital crabs... ''spear totting, Indian-chanting crabs''.]]

* ''Literature/NeverWipeTearsWithoutGloves'' is a brutal aversion, with most of the cast dead of AIDS by the end. Then again, the book is a semi-autobiographical look at the ravages of HIV/AIDS in Stockholm's gay community in the early eighties, and removing AIDS would have been missing the point in an epic way.

* [[PlayedForLaughs Played for laughs]] ([[BlackHumor sort of]]) in ''[[Literature/TheGoodSoldierSvejk The Adventures of Good Soldier Švejk]]'', set during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI -- one character describes his futile attempts to catch a venereal disease in order to [[DraftDodging avoid military service]]. To his despair he remained as fit as a fiddle.

* Averted in the fifth season of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' as Sam is shown contracting gonorrhea and herpes. It should be noted that none of the STD's are ever acquired due to sex OR due to demonic blood drinking. In both cases, it was due to Sam aggravating a supernatural entity (a witch and a trickster [[spoiler: who's really an Angel]]) and being cursed.
** Both of the boys get hit with syphilis (along with scarlet fever and meningitis) by the [[HorsemenOfTheApocalypse Horseman Pestilence]], although that's just his power instead of them sleeping around. They're cured not long after, though.

* Played straight on ''Series/{{ER}}'', where hospital stud Doug Ross managed to have drunken one-night stands with numerous women, yet never caught anything--a fanfic actually him citing how lucky he was.

** A glaring example on ''Series/{{Loving}}'' as Steffy prepared to seduce Clay. He rebuffed her advances, telling her, "I don't have any condoms", but she assured him that she was on the Pill, completely disregarding that this would only prevent pregnancy, not disease transmission.
*** Subverted a few years later on the SpinOff ''The City'', after Sydney is raped by her husband. When she goes to her doctor for an exam, she is very adamant about being tested for HIV and STD's (this is a standard part of a rape exam regardless), given her husband's penchant for infidelity.

* Averted during ''Series/GeneralHospital'''s AIDS storyline, where Stone had AIDS and his girlfriend Robin eventually tested positive, despite two previously negative tests. Viewers pleaded for her to remain negative, but the writers felt that this would be irresponsible, as the two had had unprotected sex numerous times (they stopped using condoms once she began taking the Pill) before they even knew of Stone's diagnosis.
