* Francine Smith of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is a practiced expert at this. In the episode "My Morning Straitjacket", to help Stan get backstage to meet the lead singer of Music/MyMorningJacket, she pulls this against several security staff, including flashing her breasts and making out with another woman.
** She attempts it (and fails) in another episode, trying to get something out of some CIA agents. Lowering the straps of her dress doesn't work, giving him her panties (taken off right in front of him) doesn't work, but the second she mentions her brownies his partner charges over in a HumongousMecha and takes them. "He makes it hard to negotiate," the first scientist remarks.

* In the 1980's series of ''Series/{{V}}'', Elizabeth (normally portrayed as quite innocent) draws away a guard so he can be quietly disposed of by hinting that she's bored and "knows what men want". Later she's asked where she got all that from. She responds coyly that she was TaughtByTelevision.

** Ranma was able to stop Prince Herb in his tracks by flashing her breasts at him, not once but several times. Seeing how he had come within inches of chopping off her head in one such instance, it's understandable. Just don't try it ''too'' often with Herb. Showing him the real thing will distract him ''long'' enough to pause, but he'll become mad with fury at the indignity.

** Even Akane (!) gets into the act: in order to save Ranma from the {{Orochi}}, she rips off her own jacket, revealing her true gender. The woman-eating dragon is sufficiently distracted and stops in its efforts to eat Ranma. That was ''after'' female-Ranma's attempts to Show Some Leg (or breast) at the {{Orochi}} (in order to draw it away from Akane and Shinnosuke) backfired horribly. The breasts went over fine -- the boxers, not as much.
** Nabiki invoked this trope once by [[PantyShot flipping up Akane's skirt]] in front of Ranma. Not only did it distract him, but it completely stopped him from finishing an attack based on strong emotion. In this case, the strong emotion was depression. Ranma uses a similar technique on Ryōga at a critical moment of the same depression-technique, causing it to backfire.
