* On ''Series/TheYoungAndTheRestless'', when a woman's husband couldn't perform (which needless to say, put a crimp into their plans to have another baby), he blamed it on stress from work, and then eventually, cruelly blamed it on her nagging and pressuring him. It turned out he was cheating on her and therefore too exhausted from having serviced his mistress all afternoon to come home and make love to his wife.
** [[SoapOpera Soaps]] like to trot this one out whenever any of their male characters is temporarily paralyzed--the man will inevitably express his fear that he won't be able to perform again, even if he does regain the use of his legs. It's also been done in more dramatic fashion--when a woman attempted to seduce her husband in order to solidify their reconciliation following her adultery, his impotence made it abundantly clear that despite what he was saying, he ''hadn't'' forgiven her.

* Rudeus in ''LightNovel/MushokuTensei'' has a more extreme version of this after [[spoiler:Eris leaves after sleeping with him]]. His "illness" not only means he can't perform with two separate women but also that he didn't have an erection at all for three ''years''. He only overcomes it thanks to [[spoiler:Sylphy, booze, and generous use of an aphrodisiac]]. This is not played comedically, as it originates from an emotionally traumatic event and only compounds his feelings of inadequacy.

* In ''[[Literature/BloodRites]]'', novice porno actor Bobby reacts badly to Harry's joke about being hired as a stunt man for Arturo's latest skin flick. Jake explains that it's because "stunt man" in the porn industry means an understudy ''penis'', used in cases when this trope strikes the intended actor.
