* ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'': Ilia is a popular {{teen idol}} and face of the Merlot Insurance company for a reasom: because she's a blonde babe with a bangin' hot bod. So all of their ads feature her doing swimsuit poses, while wearing string bikinis.

* Aksys' marketing of ''RecordOfAgarestWar'' played up the {{Fanservice}} to absurd levels, including a fake "censored" ad, and a pillowcase and "boob" ergonomic mousepad packaged with the special edition. It's actually a DatingSim/Strategy RPG with levels of Fanservice reaching the high end of normal for a Dating Sim -- it can get pretty thick at times, but you're not going to be tripping over suggestive scenes every five seconds like they make it seem.

* Discussed in ''Manga/UQHolder'' in regards to a hoverbike race where the entrants all wear skimpy swimsuits.
-->'''Mizore''': Now that we have magically-enhanced safety systems, [[RefugeInAudacity the latest trend is to see how dangerous we can make it visually]]! And if they come off, the audience will love it and boost the event's popularity, so the sponsors are all for it!



* ''Webcomic/Gaia'': An ad has Viviana as shown in this [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2016/01/05/breaking-all-barriers-136/ comic]] in her underwear, and Lilith retorting using her image in the last panel of this [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2015/07/28/breaking-all-barriers-091/ comic]]:

* In a Season 13 episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' called '''Baking Bad''', this trope is the advice that Glen Quagmire gives to Peter when Peter and his wife, Lois, open a up a cookie bakery that has trouble attracting more customers--it works when Peter hires six female strippers with cookie-themed names, but, Peter being Peter, he ends up taking it to the extreme when he turns his and Lois's cookie bakery into a full-on strip club that merely distributes free cookies.

* An accidental version in ''Spitfire Girls'' by Carol Gould. An aviatrix is pitching the idea of using female pilots for ferry duties. As she leads some VIP's around the airfield, one of them barges through a door without knocking and sees a pretty pilot [[ShowSomeLeg with her skirt hitched up]], adjusting her suspenders. Later she muses that the flash of garter might have been more effective in gaining a supporter than anything she might have said.

* In ''Series/TheITCrowd'', the episode "Calendar Geeks" features this trope prominently. Roy manages to talk the women of the seventh floor into doing a nude calendar as a fundraiser for "boss-eyed-ness", [[BlatantLies selflessly]] offering to be the photographer. Jen gets offended when she finds out, since she views nude calendars as sexist and degrading, so she persuades the women to change the plan and sell a calendar of their grandmothers instead. Unfortunately, by this point [[AllMenArePerverts Douglas]] has learned about the original plan and informs Jen that she's now responsible for getting the calendar to raise a million pounds. Jen, realizing that grannies don't sell nearly as well as sex, desperately turns to Moss and his friends in an attempt to cash in on the "geek chic" trend.
