He then goes home to have sex with his wife, but when he tries it out it he's perturbed to find out that she's already familiar with it.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' at one point, Joey is interested in a younger new policewoman. He doesn't think he should cheat on Bonnie, but Bonnie's constantly shoving Joey away, ignoring his achievements and being far more interested on how she comes off to the other wives rather than how Joey is feeling puts doubt in his minds, the nail in the coffin is when Peter mentions that Bonnie already had an affair years before. However, it's revealed that Bonnie never went through with the affair but everything else still stands. Joey's affair then is portrayed as something wrong, but sympathetic.

* This is the central premise of the play and film ''Same Time, Next Year''. Both parties meet once each year for a tryst, because both have fallen in love with the other. We never meet their partners, but what is shared about their respective wife and husband doesn't make them out to be particularly deserving of being cheated on consistently. For what it's worth, the two leads ''are'' well aware that the whole arrangement is pretty messed up.
