* In ''{{lonelygirl15}}'', this is something of a speciality of Sarah's. {{Lampshade}}d in "Shop of Horrors!!!", when Jonas explains how Sarah is going to "distract the store owner with, uh, a long conversation", and the camera immediately pans to Sarah's breasts. Sarah responds, "What? I'm just doing my job!"

** Despite not being able to use those powers in Impel Down (Devil Fruit users, including those recognized as allies, are restrained using Sea Stone before entering) she makes good use of this to deliver a message to Ace. (The catcalls from the other prisoners distract Magellan, and his entourage is just as frightened of him as the prisoners are. As a result, nobody hears the message Boa gives to Ace.)

* ''Film/TheReplacements'': {{The cheerleader}}s deliberately use this trope to cause a penalty call against the [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Dallas team]] for a false start, while the replacement Sentinels are still learning to work together. It is also distracting to the fans and the refs.

* In possibly the most famous example, a hitchhiking Claudette Colbert picks up a ride by flashing her legs in Frank Capra's ''Film/ItHappenedOneNight''. This one has been parodied so many times that many people now don't realize this is where the gag actually came from.

[[AlwaysFemale Female]] character [[WeNeedADistraction provides a distraction]] by flirting with and/or showing some skin to an opposing guard, SpearCarrier and/or RedShirt characters. Of course if you have large breasts it's a lot easier. And some characters [[HelloNurse are distractions all by themselves]].

* In the 1999 TV movie ''[=NetForce=]'', a member of the eponymous force has a couple of attractive female staff members from the local US Embassy join him on a yacht, which he sails alongside a Russian cargo vessel they suspect is up to no good. As the two women dance around in swimsuits and the crew line the rails to enjoy the sight, he's waving about a video camera recording the whole thing, enabling MissionControl to get pictures of the crew's faces.

** In ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'', James Bond is captured and held at gunpoint in the back of a moving truck. Driving by is a pretty girl (his ally) who reveals her thighs, distracting the guards so Bond can escape.

In the StormingTheCastle scene, Octopussy's AmazonBrigade pose as dancing girls, keeping the guards distracted while their compatriots sneak in elsewhere (in an ironic touch, the BigBad isn't bothered by his men being DistractedByTheSexy as he's about to do a runner).
