* Averted in ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'': Mac and Dee have contracted [=STDs=] during the series. In Mac's case, it's a recurring problem (since he never uses a condom during sex).

Dennis has much more sex than both of them but doesn't seem to have this problem, presumably because he's smart enough to use a condom.

* Sam Malone on ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' is apparently immune to all sexual diseases in spite of his Don Juan lifestyle. The closest he came to picking something up was when it looked like he might've gotten a woman pregnant but it turned out to be a false alarm. The writers of the show once considered addressing this by having an episode where it would've looked like Sam had contracted AIDS, though the plot never made it to air due to fear it couldn't be handled in good taste (The episode would have aired in 1988, when the AIDS epidemic was in full swing).

* During Chuck Austen's run on ''Franchise/XMen'', there was a passing mention by Husk that mutants apparently can't get HIV. This was never mentioned before, was likely meant to include as a HandWave for why Archangel's [[HealingHands healing blood]] didn't carry the really obvious health risk, and has never been mentioned again. Angel also mentions it and a doctor confirms it. One presumes that this applies to ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} (and by extension Daken and ComicBook/{{X 23}}) or any other character with a sufficiently strong healing factor.

* Averted in ''NameOfTheWind''. In Kvothe's part of the world, it's rarely mentioned (because it's not really that relevant to him), but the Adem describe going to great lengths to avoid or remove venereal diseases. Kvothe notes how important this is in light of the amount of sex they have, and with how many partners.

* Subverted by Quagmire of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', who is apparently the venereal disease equivalent of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]] in that he carries every STD known to man but shows no symptoms (as his diseases are so balanced with each other that a slight imbalance could kill him). In fact, the only sexually transmitted disease he doesn't have is an unnamed disease from an African insect that Peter personally flew out and tried to find.

* Averted in ''Videogame/HunieCamStudios'', where sending girls to work as escorts has the possibility of them getting various [=STDs=] that can cause various debilitating statuses. They can even end up contracting AIDS, which is both incurable and prevents them from doing anything.

** The entire Naked In School universe (which does not include HowHogwartsBecameANudistColony) has this as a requirement, as bodily fluid transmissions are inevitable. Condoms are therefore unnecessary, as all contraception is taken care of via inoculation.
