* A whole episode of ''Series/MamasFamily'' centers around [[TheDitz Vint's]] temporary inability to get it up, which his wife Naomi calls in to talk to Joyce Brothers about when she's featured on a local talk show. Naturally, everyone in town sees it, and {{hilarity ensues}}.

* The eunuch Bagoas in [[Creator/MaryRenault ''The Persian Boy'']] reflects on how his former lover/owner King Darius reacted to this trope as opposed to how his present lover, Alexander the Great, takes occasional impotence. Darius would become upset and send for a sexual expert like Bagoas to 'make things right'. Alexander just takes it as a sign he needs a good nights sleep.

* One interpretation of the Viscount's broken sword in ''Art/MarriageALaMode'' is as a symbol of sexual impotence; while the lace nightcap being sniffed by one of the family dogs indicates that he has just returned from a brothel, it appears he was unable to perform, probably as a result of his case of syphilis. (The damp patch on the front of his wife's skirt and her contented expression suggest that her own extramarital tryst had a more satisfactory ending.)

** When Mr. Hankey's wife, Autumn, appears on the show, she frequently makes some jabs at husband's inability to perform. Between this, and [[LadyDrunk her alcoholism,]] their marriage is clearly [[AwfulWeddedLife not a very happy one.]]

* In the short-lived spy series ''Under Cover'', Flynn convinces a JerkAss colleague that the reason he's being constantly questioned by an agency psychiatrist is because they believe he's impotent (actually because he keeps lying to make himself appear in a good light). HilarityEnsues with a dream sequence where he's being grilled by the Director (played by G.W. Bailey of ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' fame) on his poor "performance".
