Added DiffLines:

* Made-for-streaming and made-for-premium cable programming in the last decade has become notorious for shoehorning sex scenes into virtually every show, with the number of TV-MA-rated series far outnumbering family-friendly productions. It has been stated in numberous articles that the presence of sex scenes not allowed on (most) standard US commercial broadcasters is one reason for the popularity of such venues. Ironically, after five seasons of becoming notorious for its sex scenes, the sixth season of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' - arguably one of its most acclaimed - contained virtually no sexual content at all other than two shots of plot-relevant nudity, one penis-related gag and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of two extras going at it in one episode.

* In an episode of ''{{Friends}}'', where Chandler is interviewing for a job with an advertising agency, one of the interviewees has an idea for a shoe commercial that ends with: "...and then the girls get out of the hot tub, and start making out!" The interviewer replies, "Very interesting, except for one problem. You forgot to mention the ''shoes''."

* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': When Ranka starts working as an idol, one of her early jobs is an advertisement for a construction company. She questions why exactly she was in a swimsuit for it. Said swimsuit was pretty conservative for the standards of this trope, but the intent was still pretty obvious.

** In ''China Town Wars'', the sexy Ling appears on both the cover and a poster included with the game. She survives for barely one mission.

Added DiffLines:

* In a similar vein, the Brazil-made ''VideoGame/ProEvolutionSoccer'' "Bomba Patch" mods for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 are almost always marketed ([[DigitalPiracyIsEvil illegally]]) with a bikini girl, who has nothing to do with the game (unless they decide to put more such pictures on the menu backgrounds, which would still be within the trope's scope), on the cover for this very reason.
