* ''WhateverLoveMeans'' portrays this mindset as an effect of patriarchal repression: Everyone want to have some control, and having been denied any other way to power a woman's only remaining option is trying to control her own sexuality and the sexuality of others. Also, women who are not sexually repressed becomes a very real threat when your sexuality is the only thing you have to bargain with: Like any other market, it's a matter of supply and demand, and minimizing supply is their only way of increasing her market value.
* ''PiranhaClub'' has a male example with [[ThisLoserIsYou the protagonist]] Ernie Floyd trying a bit too hard to convince his girlfriend's father that he doesn't pose a threat to the old man's daughter.

* In ''{{Attenberg}}'', it is established that Bella is more sexually experienced and that Marina feels inadequate. And then hardly a conversation goes by without Marina calling Bella "whore", "stupid", or (depending on translation) either "wild animal" or "predator".

* ''ATreeGrowsInBrooklyn'' is pretty heavy on the "women treat each other worse than men treat women" idea, with the obvious example being the neighborhood women who harass and eventually stone a girl who has a baby out of wedlock. The narration explains how miserable these women's marriages are.

** Speaking of the spinoff ''ComicBook/BitchyButch'' never seems to quit whining about supposedly prudish women, mostly because she's frustrated that they won't leave their boyfriends and start having sex with ''her'' instead. Ironically, it's hinted that Butchy herself has been quite the Sour Prude to her previous girlfriends (only hinted, since the stories are all told from [[UnreliableNarrator her biased perspective]] where [[NeverMyFault everything was always their fault and never hers]]) .

* ''ComicBook/BitchyBitch'' invoke this quite often. Her accusations is never portrayed as justified. Unlike her [[ComicBook/BitchyButch lesbian counterpart]], she is not portrayed as [[{{Hypocrite}} being a prude herself]].

* ''Manga/ToLoveRu''
** Yui frequently chides other students for their "inappropriate" behavior and asserts herself to be uninterested in anything related to sex. Risa notes how hilarious it is that a prude girl like her has [[http://mangahere.co/manga/to_love_ru/v13/c115/11.html so curvy a body]].
** Nana. Similar to Yui's case above (in fact more than once in the manga, they're both seen criticizing Rito at the same time during his AccidentalPervert moments), though hers is slightly more downplayed compared to the former. This also makes her even more of a {{Foil}} to her LovableSexManiac sister Momo.

Often a tragic character portrayed as being overly prudish as a kind of SourGrapes: "[[CelibateHero I deny myself my sexuality]], [[JerkassHasAPoint so why don't these people do the same thing?]]". Thus "Sour Prudes". For [[TookALevelInJerkass extra irony]], Alice might be pulling the EntitledToHaveYou card, based on being such a good girl. This can be especially tragic if she lives in a society where women are economically dependent on men, making her come across as justified -- or at least as a TroubledSympatheticBigot who is only trying to survive in NoWomansLand. In some cases, this might go hand in hand with MaritalRapeLicense. For example, let's say that Alice is outraged at Charlene for saying that oral sex is okay -- and that the real reason for this outrage is that Alice fears that Charlene's opinion may encourage Alice's husband Bob to try to pressure Alice into having oral sex.

''If'' this Alice has taken a vow of chastity (and she usually hasn't), she might ''also'' be a StrawmanPolitical of the conservative kind. Note that a character who chose to be chaste -- without being a {{Jerkass}} about it -- is ''not'' this trope. If a character is accused of being this trope by another character, without being portrayed as such by the narrative, it counts as "[[PlayingWithATrope invoked]]" and does not go on character sheet pages.
