When a character about to have sex cannot get it up. The cause is often a sexual version of PerformanceAnxiety, but may also sometimes be related to {{UST}} - for someone other than the person/people they're with at the moment. The "guy can't get hard for girl(s)" variation is the most common -- the phrase "It's okay, this sort of thing happens to lots of guys" is closely associated with this trope.

Strictly a comedy trope, since the situation is usually temporary, and playing it for drama lasts longer. Double points if something like "I'm sorry, I swear this has never happened to me before..." or the above-mentioned "It's okay..." phrase shows up in the dialog.

Contrast RagingStiffie, SpeedSex (for when the guy goes off too quickly rather than not at all), SomethingElseAlsoRises. Parodies of the latter are occasionally used as a visual gag - e.g. a skyscraper collapsing. ThinkUnsexyThoughts is an inversion of this.

* Roark Junior, the truly vile title character of the ''Comicbook/SinCity'' story "That Yellow Bastard", [[LovesToHearThemScream loves to hear his young victims scream]]. It's the only way he can get aroused, and the only way he can even get it up. Which is why Nancy's absolute refusal to scream for him [[spoiler:as he's torturing her]] is such a moment of awesome.

* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Cetaganda]]'', Barrayan noble [[HandsomeLech Ivan Vorpatril]] gets himself into a threesome with two Cetagandan ghem-ladies during a diplomatic mission, and finds out that his host had slipped him an anti-aphrodisiac in his drink earlier, resulting in great personal embarrassment until he finds a way around his little problem, involving the aforementioned "other ways to get the job done" and some bluffing about Barrayan sexual mores worthy of his craftier cousin Miles. In a minor CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Ivan, his performance is so impressive that he ends up becoming a SexGod among the ghem-ladies in spite of his drug-induced setback.
