->''"Creator/RogerEbert felt {{Creator/Elvira|MistressOfTheDark}}'s appearance was worth mentioning in his review, but I suspect he had a minimum word count to meet before his review went to press, and if you’re going to break out the shovel to up the word count, you might as well talk about the chick with the great rack."''
-->-- ''Website/TheAgonyBooth'''s recap of ''[[http://www.agonybooth.com/movies/Tribute_to_Burt_Reynolds_Hal_Needham.aspx?Page=5 Stroker Ace]]''

It could have had great humor, brilliant action sequences and diabolical villains. What everyone remembers, however, is the female lead's YouCanLeaveYourHatOn in the {{Sweeps}} one year. Or, in an even more extreme case, a [[MaleFrontalNudity penis]] when it pops up on screen. This trope refers to the actions of characters rather than characterization.

This is the common tendency for {{fanservice}} to overshadow everything else about a work, regardless of the amount that actually occurs in it (sometimes the most remembered bit of {{fanservice}} actually comes from promotional materials, which [[NeverTrustATrailer don't accurately depict what actually happens in the show]]). At the extreme end, it becomes AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame... with boobs. This can be so powerful and effective in Hollywood that the HollywoodHypeMachine will go into overdrive and make an actress who bared all (or most) of herself an instant, overnight household name. Don't laugh--[[Film/AmericanPie Shannon Elizabeth]] and [[Film/WildThings Denise Richards]] got ''years'' of movie roles because of this trope. At times this effect can become self-perpetuating: the mainstream audience first discovers a work due to its fanservice, and when word starts to spread about it, the fanservice is what newcomers hear about first as well. Ultimately, large portions of the audience may end up knowing nothing else about the work.

Of course, one person's fanservice is another's FanDisservice. This is particularly prominent ("[[DoubleStandard for some reason]]") any time there's a [[MrFanservice dude on display]] in a work with any meaningful proportion of straight men in the audience. But hey, remembered positively or negatively, it's all the same in the end--hype is hype. Such [[InvertedTrope inversions]] go below all the same.

For the more romantic equivalent, see MostFanficWritersAreGirls. See also FreudWasRight. When viewers watch a show specifically for fanservice, they're JustHereForGodzilla. See also FanserviceExtra and DancingBear. OneSceneWonder is a similar phenomenon, but mostly unrelated. See also SignatureScene, which is often this. A subtrope of NeverLiveItDown.

!!Examples:

[[folder: Advertising]]
* The German materials wholesale chain Hornbach once had a TV commercial that tried to sell wooden ceiling panels with a couple having hot sex in a bed. The German comedian Michael Mittermeier pointed out the flaw of this concept: Nobody remembers the name of the company because nobody has ever been interested in their logo once it pops up, interrupting the sex scene.
--> "Fuck that company, I wanna see those two shaggers again!"
* The T-Mobile cellphone company had a series of ads in the late 1990's/early-2000's featuring well-known-for-hotness actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. Surveys showed viewers remembered the ads quite well, but typically couldn't recall the nature of the product, let alone which company she was shilling. Notable is the fact that Zeta-Jones wasn't naked or being seductive - just a famous and pretty woman talking about... something.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Anime & Manga ]]
* Despite ''Anime/DivergenceEve'' delivering a serious plot, it's only remembered for the female characters' impressive chest.
* ''Manga/ElfenLied'' is probably best known as that manga with huge amounts of nudity and gore. Most of the nudity is in the context of MindRape and abuse, but that small detail easily falls to the side.
* ''Nisemonogatari'', the sequel to ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'', has several interesting characters with very witty fast cut dialogue, amazing visuals and Creator/AkiyukiShinbo's unique directing style, not to mention the subtext of the meaning of original and imitation regarding everyday life. But you will all fondly recall the moment where you nearly died of laughter or shame when Koyomi brushed his sister Karen's teeth and it was supposed to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything remind you of something]].
* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has lots of well endowed female characters who wear skimpy clothes and have several scenes where they are naked. The male characters also get some of this. Hiro Mashima's previous series ''Manga/RaveMaster'' was also like this but in the second half.
* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' only had fanservice manifest as a HotSpringsEpisode, very early in the series, but it's the reason most commonly cited (right before the TransformationSequence) by people who [[HypeAversion don't want to watch it]].
** Later seasons proudly fly the fanservice banner, making Nanoha known pretty much as a GirlsLove series with magical girls in it. It's one of the few to have adult females in an ([[HideYourLesbians ambiguous]]) relationship and even rarer in that they adopt a daughter.
* Mention ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' and most people will inevitably think of Fanservice or ClothingDamage. Yes, the manga has a lot of fanservice, but it also has a ton of CharacterDevelopment, an epic plot, and a ton of [[CoolVersusAwesome awesome fights]]. Still doesn't keep the fanservice from overshadowing just about everything else in the popular perception of the series.
** As with the previous example, it doesn't help that the early volumes were more {{fanservice}}-heavy than later ones. To make matters worse, a lot of people's only exposure is the first anime, which is severely lacking in a lot of the more combat oriented storylines. Ironically, the second anime lacks any fanservice what-so-ever.
** In-universe, Takane D. Goodman is remembered by others for getting naked a lot ([[ClothingDamage although never by her own choice]]) and little else, except for her co-workers, who try to console her about that.
** In fact, Takane is so used to it that, [[spoiler:when she challenges Negi (and loses)]] in chapter 345, [[spoiler: when she ISN'T stripped of her clothes (which is how Negi usually and accidentally wins against her a lot), she's insulted, and DEMANDS that he [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v37/c345/6.html undress her.]]]]
* ''Anime/EdenOfTheEast'' is an OntologicalMystery story that revolves around a man who wakes up with eight-billion yen and no memory as he seeks to find out who he is, why he erased his own memory, and just what the secret organization that gave him all that money expects him to do with it. You would probably not know this from talking to its fans, however, because they're all too busy giggling over [[http://omochikaeri.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/eden_of_the_east.jpg this]]. And once they get over that, they must contend with the [[NakedPeopleAreFunny vast horde of naked dudes]] that shows up later in the series.
* There's a scene in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' where November 11 lounges around [[spoiler:Amber's headquarters]] buck-naked. Naturally, fan tributes kind of fixate on it.
* ''Anime/QueensBlade'' has a fairly good story behind it, most people probably never saw it. Everyone either just hears about the "acid boobs" in the first episode and turns away, or conversely got hooked on the series BECAUSE of the acid boobs.
** Or they came for the acid boobs and stayed for the story.
* Ask the majority of the ''Manga/IkkiTousen'' fandom what they remember the most - chances are {{panty shot}}s, [[{{Gainaxing}} boobs]] and [[GirlOnGirlIsHot lesbians (explicit or subtext)]] will be more common answers than anything remotely related to Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms.
* With ''Anime/{{Simoun}}'', everyone remembers the underaged lesbian powered airplanes.
* ''Manga/CannonGodExaxxion'' is a near-''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva]]''-level deconstruction of SuperRobot stories, particularly of the "[[AlienInvasion aliens invade]], teenager's [[MadScientist scientist grandfather]] gives him [[HumongousMecha a robot to fight them with]]" variety and has a lot to say about the nature of heroism and the truth. Ask people about it on the Internet, though, and all you'll hear is talk, often derisive, about certain scenes with {{Lolicon}} undertones (and, uh, one with possible ''over''tones, but still).
* ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' prominently features the female lead stark naked in the first episode. She's not human, but that can lead people to the wrong conclusions easily enough, and many who have not watched the show assume that she goes around naked frequently, when in fact she prefers to wear clothes in her human form because she gets cold without her fur.
* ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'' was a CuteMonsterGirl version of ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'', but what everyone seems to remember most is DarkSkinnedBlonde {{Stripperific}} [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent wolfgirl]] Liru, who went on to become a MemeticSexGod BreakoutCharacter.
** Other memorable incidents include Yuuma's occasional MarilynManeuver due to ChunkyUpdraft and a FuroScene featuring [[GagBoobs overdeveloped]] [[VoluntaryShapeshifting tanuki]] "{{g|enderBender}}irls".
* In ''Seikon No Qwaser'', breastfeeding and bondage are apparently the only things anyone ever does. Forget the cool characters, literal ElementalPowers, CharacterDevelopment and kickass battles.
* ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' is the story of a woman trying to make a life for herself and her 6 year-old daughter after a massive disaster takes away everything from her, including her memories; all while dodging Child Protective Services and getting caught up in a corporate power struggle. It's also the story of said woman turning into superpowered warrior with a ridiculously {{Stripperific}} outfit and getting into fights that are the very definition of OrgasmicCombat. Guess which part people remember more (hell, guess which part is used to ''market'' the show?)
* ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' had a prominently large proportion of male viewers watching it only for Chun-Li's ShowerScene. Apparently {{fanservice}}-loving Creator/MasamiObari noticed and provided respective shower scenes as well on the ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' and ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden'' [[TheAnimeOfTheGame spin-offs]] he directed.
* ''Anime/SkyGirls'', the spiritual predecessor to ''Anime/StrikeWitches'' and ''Anime/VividredOperation'' was about [[OlderThanTheyLook somewhat cute]] girls in suggestive skin tight suits piloting flying MiniMecha and battling aliens aiming to destroy humanity. It had decent characters and an engaging plot with many twists, but... well, just look at the trope name again.
** ''Strike Witches'' is ostensibly about an elite flying unit battling an alien invasion with magic, but apparently the only people possessing the right kind of magical powers are pre-teen and teenage girls willing to fight aerial battles in their underwear. Countless panty shots ensue. In fact, it's easier to count the scenes ''without'' panty shots.
** ''Vividred Operation'', by the same director, is a pseudo-MagicalGirl series about cybernetically enhanced girls fighting giant evil robots. But more importantly: they don't wear pants (and when they do, they're [[WhoWearsShortShorts very short ones]]), and there are ''lots'' of ass-shots.
* Parodied in ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' in an episode about how people will easily get distracted by something and completely ignore the more important issue. A straight example is when Chiri battled aliens but nobody remembers her deed as the sole witness was completely fixated on her bizarre underwear. Another straight example that lampshades the entire episode was when Nozomu was lamenting over how the viewer survey answered that they were more interested in the fanservice segment where Komori was flirting with Majiru over the alien invasion plot.
** Even the aliens were more interested in that segment than the invasion itself. Which is why they were so easy to defeat.
* The anime adaptation of ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' contains much more {{fanservice}} than the manga, with breast and {{panty shot}}s galore, which has caused some backlash from certain parts of the fandom, but usually not to the point that it ruins the series for them. At least not until the 2nd season, which largely discards the plot in favor of [[UpToEleven even more fanservice]].
* ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead''. [[{{Joshikousei}} High school girls]] and [[HospitalHottie a hot school nurse?]] Check. WorldOfBuxom? Check. [[{{Gainaxing}} Lots of bouncing?]] An episode where the main female characters bathe together, with plenty of nudity? [[HomoeroticSubtext Lesbian subtext?]] A BeachEpisode OVA that borders on softcore porn? ''[[OverlyLongGag Checkmarks all.]]''
** It doesn't help that the fanservice gets to the point of such absurdity that it ends up scaring people off from watching the show for any other reason ''besides'' boobies. On top of that is the fact that it's so ridiculous that even people who otherwise would get a kick out of fanservice end up revolted.
* ''Anime/AgentAika'' and ''Anime/NajicaBlitzTactics'' have plenty of fight scenes, but everyone is more interested in massive amounts of {{Panty Shot}}s.
* The seventh ''Manga/OnePiece'' movie ''Anime/TheGiantMechanicalSoldierOfKarakuriCastle'' is an adventure involving a golden crown, giant robots, a giant turtle, and a (non-canon) explanation for how Luffy got the name for his Gear power-ups. All of that is brushed aside for Nami and Robin's breast enhancements, constant bouncing, and fetishistic outfits.
* ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'' has a strong, character-driven plot and excellent fight scenes. But what most people know about it is the WorldOfBuxom and {{fanservice}} bordering on softcore at times. Many are surprised to learn the author is a woman.
* ''LightNovel/SakurasouNoPetNaKanojo'' is almost entirely character drama, TearJerker moments, and realistic struggles with life and romance. But most non-fans are only aware of the [[SexSells heavily advertised couple of scenes]] where a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} spaced-out girl]] [[InnocentFanserviceGirl gets naked]]. And the title translates to "The Pet Girl Of Sakura Hall," making the whole thing look like a HaremSeries.
* Averted in ''Manga/KoiKaze'', a series built around the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westermarck_effect Westermarck effect]] which could have made it a hentai fest... but they indeed went for the moral high ground and never once showed a sex scene between the two protagonists. A kiss is all you will get.
* The first thing you're likely to hear about ''Literature/FromTheNewWorld'' is that [[YaoiGenre there's gay romance in it]]. The second thing you'll hear about is the [[YuriGenre lesbian romance]]. If you're lucky, someone might also mention the {{dystopia}}n psychological horror plot that takes up 99% of the screentime.
* ''LightNovel/KyoukaiSenjouNoHorizon'' is a sprawling high fantasy world with the benefit of a veteran writer with several series under his belt, each sharing common themes and concepts throughout their shared universe. Every trope is examined, played with, and ultimately justified. The HolyShitQuotient is high, the sound track is orgasmic, and the world building is matched only by the sheer amount of characterization. On the other hand, [[MemeticMutation balloon tits]].
* ''Manga/FrankenFran'' must be some weird medical fetish manga, judging by the covers. Nevermind the horrific versions of each cover on literally the next page or the fact it's a horror-fueled BlackComedy.
* Between official art and a massive {{Yuri Fan}}dom, the first thing you're likely to learn (or at least assume) about ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is that there's ([[AmbiguouslyGay probably]]) [[HoYay/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica a lot of gay people in it.]] Oddly enough, the actual fanservice (what little there is) isn't mentioned as much, other than the [[MemeticMutation "naked space hugs" scene]].
** Alternately, the importance of horror scenes is overstated, making the would-be viewers assume its chockfull of shocking violence.
* The only things most people seem to remember about ''Anime/SuiseiNoGargantia'' are the scene where Amy dances for Ledo in a skimpy outfit and the BeachEpisode, despite the fact that the rest of the series has about as much fanservice as a Disney movie.
* If you know just one thing about ''Anime/{{Free}}'' it's probably that a bunch of hot muscular swimmer guys get half naked a lot. As the anime seems to have been deliberately intended as a [[FemaleGaze female-directed equivalent]] to the all-prevalent moe fanservice anime, this was probably expected, and the producers and advertisers have certainly made the most of it.
* Aside from being a gorey MindScrew {{Mon}} genre deconstruction, ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' is most well known for Norio. He's an androgynous crossdressing boy [[spoiler:who dies in an awful, awful way]].
* The {{Stripperific}} heroine of ''Anime/KillLaKill'' makes the series a GuiltyPleasure by design for many viewers. However, those who endure often come to appreciate the series' other strong points, such as humor, fights and larger-than-life characters.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* Psylocke of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}. Even leaving aside her years in Marvel UK (pilot, secret agent, dead fiance, killed her brother's EvilTwin when he tried to rape her...), remember those years she spent as the team's primary {{telepath|y}}? How about those two times she [[{{Badass}} took on Sabretooth with nothing but her psychic powers and won?]] ... Nothing? Okay, how about that time she got turned into a generic Asian babe and spent years doing nothing but pose in a thong?
** Let's not forget Emma Frost and her preference for as skimpy as can be costumes without getting herself arrested.
* InUniverse, Jade lampshaded this in ''GreenLantern'' when she laments that ''everyone'' saw her spread in ''Bikini Magazine''. (Of course, it's kinda hard to forget a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe green-skinned babe]] in a bikini, but that's besides the point.)
* What are the [[MostCommonSuperPower two things everyone remembers]] about PowerGirl?
** [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Her cynical sense of humor and tragic backstory about trying to find her true past?]]
** Her [[DoubleEntendre firm but well-rounded "backstory"]] isn't too bad either.
* "Of course ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'' is a good series! It's got a truly courageous female character who highlights the inherent sexism in superhero comics. It does surprising things with its main cast's character development. It's really funny. It's got more {{bo|undAndGagged}}ndage and ClothingDamage than you'd think possible to fit in a comic... hey, where are you going?"
** "You'll like it now. I mean, the later volumes are far more [[CerebusSyndrome serious]] and respectful. Ninjette, Thugboy and Sistah Spooky are all fleshed out, Emp barely gets tied up at all, and even uses her status as a stripping-magnet tactical- No?"
* ''BattleChasers'' is remembered for three things, and two of them were on Red Monika's chest. (The other, even more unfortunately, was the book's chronic lateness.)
* ''NovasAventurasDeMegaman'' had rampant nakedness. However, that only started with issue 12 of 16. The comic is now mostly known for this.
* ''{{Gen 13}}'' Everyone remembers Fairchild super legs, and Rainmaker who [[spoiler:kissed]] Fairchild.
* ''Valkyries'', a TwoThousandAD strip was this in spades. In fact, fans complained that it was nothing but {{Fanservice}}. ''DroidLife'' parodied this with ''Valkyries: From The Neck Up''.
* ''{{ComicBook/Watchmen}}'' has a naked blue superhero, and something about a dead comedian.
* What does everyone remember about ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'s appearance in ComicBook/SecretSix? That there is a blatant shot of his ass in his ''very'' tight uniform [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deense/4713693113/ The artist even wrote "Hot" when she signed it!]]
* Carol Danvers long time black uniform (which she had to discard when she went from MsMarvel to Captain Marvel) is one of the most beloved fan service costumes out there.
* Long before she briefly married Comicbook/CaptainAtom, Plastique made her debut in ''ComicBook/{{Firestorm}}'' issue 7 as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Quebec}} Quebec separatist]] terrorist with an [[ActionBomb explosive-laden]] [[SpyCatsuit catsuit]]. Most memorably, of course, was the way Firestorm defeated her by [[TheNudifier disintegrating her costume]], carrying off her bombs to detonate safely, and undermining her attempted martyrdom and political statement by leaving the hapless villainess [[DefeatByModesty standing naked in front of live TV cameras]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film A-M ]]
* ''10''. Bo Derek runs in slow motion on the beach.
* ''Film/TheAlphabetKiller'': Pretty much a movie about ElizaDushku's breasts.
* ''Film/AngelHeart'' was a twisted horror-noir movie staring Creator/RobertDeNiro, Mickey Rourke, and directed by the guy who did Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall''. Not ringing any bells? How about the sex scene involving the daughter from ''TheCosbyShow''? Ok, now you remember.
* ''Film/{{Australia}}'': HughJackman slowly and shirtlessly pours a bucket of water over himself... in Australia.
* ''BasicInstinct'': Interrogation scene. Sharon Stone's leg moves. Basically that brief flash of flesh is the only thing most people remember from this film. There's a reason it's described as the film that ruined a million [=VCRs=].
* ''The Betsy'' has a wonderful scene where Kathleen Beller slips off her clothes and takes a nude swim. There was a car in the movie too, but who cares?
* The film prints of ''Big Bad Mama'' lost most of Angie Dickinson's nude scene. The reason? Projectionists kept stealing frames of it.
* ''Film/BlackSwan'': If the early hype was to be believed, it was about MilaKunis having lesbian sex with Creator/NataliePortman[[note]]Or making out with Portman and going down on her body double[[/note]]... and something about ballet?
* ''Blame it on Rio'' is remembered for Demi Moore and Michelle Johnson's scenes.
* ''Blood On Satan's Claw'' is an extremely well-made and chilling British horror film from 1971. It is mostly remembered for two scenes, featuring future and past ''Series/DoctorWho'' actors respectively.
** The first is where Linda Hayden (as Angel Blake) tempts Anthony Ainley (as Reverend Fallowfield) with her naked body right in the church. Because he is ([[PlayingAgainstType for once]]) one of the good characters, he turns her down.
** The second is where Wendy Padbury is gang-raped and then killed by Angel's Satanic cult. [[AllMenArePerverts Zoe fanboys often]] [[UnfortunateImplications ignore the context of this scene and instead focus on a half-second of nipple]].
* ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103843/ Blown Away]]'' is an obscure thriller from 1992 only two groups of people will remember: Fans of "The Two Coreys" and fans of [[Series/{{Baywatch}} Nicole]] [[Series/CharlesInCharge Eggert]] (who is naked for at least 20% of the movie).
* ''TheBlueLagoon''--though far less actual naughty bits were shown than people remember, thanks to judicious use of camera angles and GodivaHair.
* It's doubtful even the people that made ''Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw'' would remember it if it didn't have the only nude scenes of [[Series/WonderWoman Lynda Carter's]] career.
* ''Film/{{Bound}}'', from the way some people talk about it, you'd think it was an hour and forty minutes of lesbian sex.
* ''Boy on a Dolphin'': Do an image search for this movie and see how many of the results show Sophia Loren's SexySoakedShirt scene.
* ''Film/BringItOn'' films, notably with the first one with performances of Creator/KirstenDunst and Creator/ElizaDushku.
* ''Film/TheBrownBunny'' probably had a plot ([[LeaveTheCameraRunning or not]]), but is mainly remembered as the film where Creator/ChloeSevigny performs un-simulated fellatio on the writer/director/star. [[OvershadowedByControversy And then the war of words with the director and Roger Ebert.]]
* ''Film/CabinFever'' is known on ThisVeryWiki mostly due to a sex scene between two characters. And a really stupid scene involving a kid screaming about pancakes and doing lame kung-fu moves.
* ''Caligula''. It's about the life of a Roman emperor...and a whole LOTTA sex going on...also, Creator/HelenMirren's breasts, in case anyone's interested.
* ''Career Opportunities'' is a thoroughly forgettable 1991 teen comedy about two people getting trapped inside a Target for the night and having to deal with robbers. Forgettable, that is, except for Creator/JenniferConnelly demonstrating BuxomIsBetter and {{Gainaxing}} by wearing a white cotton tank top for the whole movie, including a scene where she bounces on a coin-operated children's pony ride (in one of the most gif-able moments in film history).
* ''Casual Sex?'': Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson toasting their buns at a nude beach. And ...
* ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' is remembered for being terrible and having Creator/HalleBerry in a really sexy leather costume. In that order.
* ''Film/{{Closer}}''; Creator/NataliePortman works in a strip club. That's pretty much all most people can remember.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' was apparently 100 minutes of a fat woman's breasts.
* ''Film/CoolWorld'': The only thing anyone remembers in the whole movie is Holli Would.
* ''Film/TheCounselor'' is a movie about drugs, murder, despair, [[MeaninglessMeaningfulWords incomprehensible dialogue]] and Creator/CameronDiaz [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers humping a Ferrari]].
* It's difficult to think that ANYONE would have heard of ''Film/CruelIntentions 2'' had it not been for the shower scene... but even that is pushing it, as those few people are very few and far between. The original ''Film/CruelIntentions'' is remembered for the lesbian kiss scene between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair... which, interestingly enough, was in [[Literature/DangerousLiaisons the novel]] the movie was based on. A novel written in the ''Eighteenth Century''.
* ''Literature/DangerousLiaisons'': UmaThurman is 18 and topless.
* Debate over the sex scene in ''Dead Calm'' tends to overshadow everything else about it. There are endless posts on the IMDb message boards asking whether [[Creator/NicoleKidman Rae]] enjoyed it, did it only to get [[Creator/BillyZane Hughie]] to lower his guard, did it to get him to lower his guard but enjoyed it anyway, got pregnant, etc.
* Jacqueline Bisset. ''The Deep''. Wet T-shirt. That scene made "wet T-shirt" a household phrase, even among people who never saw the movie.
* It's hard to remember anything in ''Film/DetroitRockCity'' other than the scene where the guys play a prank that involves knocking down all the stalls in a women's restroom - revealing a teenage girl literally caught with her pants down on a toilet.
* Downplayed in ''Film/DontLookNow'', Its unusually long sex scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie is memorable for being one of the most definitive in a mainstream movie. Even then, it doesn't quite match the impact of the conclusion.
* The best-known part of ''Film/EasternPromises'' is the bathhouse fight scene, which features Creator/ViggoMortensen fighting off two guys [[FullFrontalAssault completely naked]].
* The biggest selling point of ''Film/{{Entrapment}}'' is the scene where ClassyCatBurglar Catherine Zeta-Jones squirms her ass [[LaserHallway under a laser tripwire]].
* Although the sequels are known for a high degree of {{chainsaw|Good}}s and ass-kicking, the original ''The Franchise/EvilDead'' is best known for the bit where Ash's sister gets raped [[WhenTreesAttack by a tree]]. Including director Sam Raimi, who ''still'' regrets leaving that scene in the final cut.
* ''Film/EyesWideShut'' is best known for being the last movie by Creator/StanleyKubrick, and having both Creator/NicoleKidman naked (at times kissing equally nude Creator/TomCruise) and an orgy by masked people.
* ''Film/FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh''? That's the movie where the chick from ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' gets naked, right?
** During the VHS era, many video rental stores reported tracking issues during Phoebe Cates' topless scene because people would rewind it and watch it over and over again.
* ''Film/{{Fanboys}}'': [[Series/VeronicaMars Kristen]] [[Series/{{Heroes}} Bell]] in the Leia costume. To save you ten minutes of searching right now; she wears it at the END of the movie while they're standing in line at the cinema.
* ''Femme Fatale'' is mostly about Rebecca Romijn-Stamos lezzing it out with Rie Rasmussen. And something about a very successful ManipulativeBitch. Maybe.
* ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'': Creator/SalmaHayek as the stripper. You don't care about anything else in that movie, do you?
* ''Film/FightClub''. Known by diehard fans as a funny, compelling and provocative dramedy about psychology, technology and consumerism. Remembered by most viewers for the {{fight scene}}s: male viewers for the thrill of [[GoodOldFisticuffs guys beating the crap out of each other]], female viewers for the sight of a shirtless, sweating Creator/BradPitt.
** And for the guys - someone banging Creator/HelenaBonhamCarter. Slide!
--->I haven't been fucked like that since grade school!
* ''52 Pickup'' is an intense thriller. With Kelly Preston and a lot of other naked women.
* ''Fire on the Amazon'' is only notable for a rare, extended Sandra Bullock sex scene; although strategically placed hands and shadows covers her nudity, just the novelty of Bullock naked in various sex positions is enough to keep the movie from descending into oblivion, since she's made it quite clear she's never doing a scene like that again.
* While ''ForgettingSarahMarshall'' is still memorable for a variety of merits, it's rare for someone to have a conversation about it without mentioning [[MaleFrontalNudity Jason Segel's penis.]] This may be intentional: his two naked appearances happen suddenly, [[NakedFirstImpression right at the beginning]] and [[BrickJoke right at the end]], making this aspect of the movie hard to, well, forget.
* The only thing anyone seems to remember about the ''Film/FridayThe13th2009'' reboot was the rather gratuitous sex scene halfway through.
** Not entirely true: there also was a SexySilhouette-style sex scene near the beginning and that SkinnyDipping chick with an impressive rack.
* ''Full Body Massage'' was a 1995 TV movie that essentially served as a vehicle for the buxom MimiRogers to be topless. And bottomless.
* As mentioned by ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in the first ''Franchise/StarWars'' episode, ''Film/{{Gia}}'' has Angelina Jolie naked and making out with a chick.
* ''The Gift'' is all about a young Katie Holmes baring her breasts and yelling the F-word at some guy.
** ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle'' {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this trope beautifully with an exchange between [[ThoseTwoGuys Rosenberg and Goldstein]]:
-->'''Goldstein:''' We're gonna watch ''The Gift'' on HBO. Supposedly Katie Holmes shows her titties in this movie!
* {{Creator/Disney}}'s ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' is often remembered by the BigLippedAlligatorMoment in the BadGuyBar with the lady mouse singer and ''stripper''.
* ''Grim Prairie Tales''. Nobody remembers anything about it at all except for the unbirthing.
* Goths and hippies may love ''Gypsy 83'' for its story and characters, but most everyone else just remembers Sara Rue's giant rack.
* Sigourney Weaver's earlier thriller movie, ''Half Moon Street'' (about an academic who takes to escort work to pay for her [=PhD=]) is generally remembered for the fact she spends a great deal of it in the nude. One scene of a topless Sigourney on an exercise bike, tends to lodge in the mind.
* Hours after the film of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' was released, all anyone talked about was the ghost images of Harry and Hermione getting naked and making out.
* ''Havoc'' is often remembered for Creator/AnneHathaway's boobies. (This predated by a few years with a similar scene (also with Hathaway) in ''Brokeback Mountain'' above, but well ... you know.)
* ''The Hidden'' with [[Series/BabylonFive Claudia Christian]] as a stripper. Who somehow screws a guy to death.
* The 2000 British crime movie ''Honest'' was only notable even at the time of its release because the Appleton sisters from the girl group All Saints showed their breasts in it.
* ''The Hot Spot'': A by-the-numbers mystery starring Don Johnson. The only reason it's remembered is because Jennifer Connelly did her first nude scene in it.
* Anyone remember ''TheDarjeelingLimited''? Heard of the short tie-in film ''HotelChevalier''? No? It's the one where Creator/NataliePortman gets naked onscreen for the first time. Now do you remember? (Portman was [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/natalie-portman-no-more-nude-scenes/ so annoyed]] by the focus on her nude scene that she hasn't done another one since.)
* ''Film/{{Hounddog}}'' consists solely of Creator/DakotaFanning getting raped.
* ''Film/HowardTheDuck'': Three things people remember about the movie (other than "It sucked") -
## "Duck Tits" [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic (Whoo-ooo!)]] - A gratuitous shot of a female duck's NonMammalMammaries when Howard is being pulled through the portal.
## Beverly (Lea Thompson), clad only in a t-shirt and panties, crawling around on her bed, shot lovingly from behind.
## Later in that same scene: the AlmostKiss between Howard and Beverly. More people remember the near-kiss than WHY it was a near-kiss. (A possessed Dr. Jennings busting through the wall to nab Howard.)
* In ''[[TheHowling Howling II]]'', Sybil Danning rips her bodice open to expose her breasts, and this shot is shown repeatedly in the end credits montage. Creator/RogerEbert's review nominated the repetitions of the shot as the movie's second and third interesting moments, though other viewers have counted more (repetitions, that is).
** Apparently this was because Danning said she'd do only one nude scene, so the producers decided to get the maximum bang for their buck.
* ''I Love Trouble'' may have been about two bickering reporters chasing down a conspiracy but all anyone remembers is JuliaRoberts getting caught skinny dipping by boy scouts.
* The key plot point everyone seems to remember about ''In The Cut'' is either Mark Ruffalo's penis or [[PlayingAgainstType Meg Ryan's boobs]].
* ''IntoTheBlue'' is about Creator/JessicaAlba wearing skimpy swimsuits and [[FormFittingWardrobe very tight panties]] (with a reprise of Miss Alba underwater behind the end credits), and [[MaleGaze the camera going between Ashley Scott's legs.]] There's also something about treasure hunters and drug dealers in the Bahamas, but...
* Even among those who haven't seen it, the horror film ''Film/JackFrost1997'' is known for the scene where the evil snowman rapes [[Film/AmericanPie Shannon Elizabeth]] with his carrot-nose.
* ''Film/JamesBond'' films are [[GirlOfTheWeek naturally prone to this]]:
** ''Film/DrNo'' - Honey's bikini scene
** ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' - Creator/HalleBerry comes out of the water, which was a direct homage to the scene in ''Dr. No''.
** And ''Film/GoldenEye'''s FemmeFatale that [[MurderousThighs killed people with her thighs]].
** Barbara Carrera as Fatima Blush in ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''..."Sign it!"
** ''Film/CasinoRoyale'', adversely, may be best remembered for a scene of Creator/DanielCraig in swim trunks. And the torture scene.
** ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', naked woman covered in gold BodyPaint. This scene, as well as the interviews / directors cuts / pictures of the actress getting painted / etc etc single-handedly spawned an entire genre of porn.
** And every credit sequence in the ''entire series''. Hmm, what's that you say? The Supervising Art Director for ''Film/GoldenEye'' was -- HOLY CRAP A TWO-HEADED WOMAN WITH A GUN COMING OUT OF HER MOUTH! BOOBS AND EXPLOSIONS -- oops, credit's gone. Darn. Oh! Wait, I think he's called Neil Lamont! Yeah...sorry for being distracted.
* ''Film/JennifersBody'': That's the movie where Creator/MeganFox makes out with a [[{{Meganekko}} cute, nerdy]] [[Creator/AmandaSeyfried chick]], right? And... bites people?
* A somewhat literal behind-the-scenes example with ''{{Film/Juno}}'' screenwriter Creator/DiabloCody. What detail about her never fails to get brought up by interviewers?
* ''TheKentuckyFriedMovie'' is that movie with "''[[CatholicSchoolGirlsRule Catholic High School Girls in Trouble]]''" and that sketch where the guys on the news watch a couple having sex (which starts when her bra comes off). There may've been other things too.
** Of course there was: There was also [[BiggerIsBetterInBed BIG JIM SLADE!]]
*** Let's not forget "People often mistake me for my daughter."
* ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''? That's the movie about Music/DavidBowie's crotch, right? Or as WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick says, it taught pre-teen girls some very interesting differences between males and females.
** It's also about Creator/JenniferConnelly dressed up [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses as a princess in very flattering and form-fitting gowns at various moments]].
* ''Film/TheLastPictureShow'' was acclaimed by critics upon release. Today, it's remembered mainly for Cybill Shepherd's nude scenes.
* ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}'': The naked space-vampire movie. (Oh, and Creator/PatrickStewart is in it briefly.)
* ''Film/LostHighway'': If you can't get past the labyrinthine plot, you'll probably only remember Patricia Arquette's controversial forced-striptease scene at Mr. Eddy's house.
* ''MagicMike'' is a rare male version. To be fair, the movie is about male strippers, but a lot of the movie discusses the problems with the lifestyle. The movie also suffered from NeverTrustATrailer, with the trailers marketing it as a comedy with a lot of stripping.
** There's also the first time we get to see Olivia Munn and her breasts on screen just as the movie got started, no less!
* The thriller ''Malicious'' is only remembered for MollyRingwald going topless (she did it to get rid of her "sweet teenage girl" image).
* ''The Mask of Zorro'' was a well made, old fashioned swashbuckler and a highlight of the 1998 movie season, but the only thing anyone seems to remember is the scene where Catherine Zeta-Jones got her clothes cut off by Antonio Banderas (not surprising really since it was practically the money shot of the entire marketing campaign).
* Lad magazines say that it's worth watching the [[TrueArtIsAngsty angsty]] and [[TearJerker depressing]] ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' just to see Creator/KirstenDunst naked.
* ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'' is remembered for two things- breaking up Brad and Jennifer's marriage and Angelina Jolie in a dominatrix outfit.
* The scene in ''Mischief'' where Kelly Preston goes full frontal to the strains of The Platters' "My Prayer". We dare anyone to come up with anything else about this movie (without Googling).
* ''Film/MulhollandDrive'' apparently consists entirely of random weird stuff surrounding [[GirlOnGirlIsHot a hot lesbian make-out]] between Creator/NaomiWatts and Creator/LauraElenaHarring. Except that really ''is'' all that happened.
* ''Film/MulhollandFalls'': ''Again'' with the Creator/JenniferConnelly...
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film N-Z ]]
* ''Film/TheNameOfTheRose'': James Bond is a crime-solving monk, and all everyone remembers is the hot peasant girl and the novice getting it on (it is, admittedly, a well-done sex scene). Fun fact: Creator/ChristianSlater was only 15 when he did that scene.
* ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie''? Isn't that the movie where some dude comes out wearing only whipped cream, two cherries and a banana? No that's the one with the constantly naked foreign exchange student whose actress happened to be the same who played [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy a Yellow Power Ranger]].
* ''Film/OneMillionYearsBC'' is mostly remembered for [[NubileSavage the poster]] showing Raquel Welch in a FurBikini.
* ''Original Sin'' had a steamy sex scene between AngelinaJolie and AntonioBanderas near the beginning of the movie. Nobody really cares about what happened after that.
* 1982's ''Paradise'' was a forgettably shameless ripoff of ''TheBlueLagoon''. There are only two reasons anyone remembers it today: For the minority - it's Phoebe Cates' film debut (predating ''FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh'' by 4 months and filmed when she was 17). For the ''vast'' majority - Phoebe Cates is naked at damn near every opportunity. Film buffs ''might'' recall it as part of [[Series/CharlesInCharge Willie]] [[Series/{{Bibleman}} Aames']] filmography.
** Michael Medved told the British magazine ''Starburst'' that "the camera is never more than two inches from Phoebe Cates' breasts and that's basically what the movie is about."
* ''Perdita Durango'' is a barely-remembered 1997 film about a criminal couple who kidnap two people in an attempt to sacrifice them before they go on a mission. The only thing memorable about the film is a sequence where female supporting character Estelle (Aimee Graham) is tied up and raped by Romeo (Javier Bardem), and whether or not she enjoyed the experience.
* ''Personal Best'' is about Mariel Hemingway and Patrice Donnelly having lesbian sex. Oh, and uh... something about the Olympics.
* When ''Film/Piranha3D'' was released in 2010 the underwater nude ballet scene quickly became the most famous thing about the movie, with the only competition from Jerry O'Connell's character getting [[GroinAttack his penis bitten off]].
* ''Powder Blue'' featured JessicaBiel's first nude scenes. And, well, other stuff.
* ''Film/TheRunaways'' is basically about Dakota Fanning making out with Creator/KristenStewart.
* Hey ''Film/RequiemForADream''! Isn't that the somber, thought-provoking film that explores the horrors of drug addiction? Nope, its just one scene of Creator/JenniferConnelly doing "ass to ass" with another woman.
* ''Film/{{Saturn 3}}'' had a very brief shot of [[Series/CharliesAngels Farrah Fawcett's]] nipple.
* ''Film/TheScorpionKing'' had Kelly Hu walk around wearing virtually nothing (or not even that) for most of the movie. Dwayne Johnson too. There was a plot?
* ''The Seduction'': Morgan Fairchild getting naked. And something about an obsessive stalker.
* ''Film/TheSevenYearItch'' is remembered more for the [[AllThereInTheManual publicity shot]] of MarilynMonroe [[MarilynManeuver having her skirt lifted by a subway vent]] than any actual scene from the movie (or [[AdaptationDisplacement the play]], for that matter).
* ''Film/{{Shame}}'' is about MichaelFassbender's junk and some other stuff.
* ''Sherrybaby'': MaggieGyllenhaal spends a good portion of the movie naked (as opposed to ''{{Secretary}}'', where she's only naked at the end), including one scene where she's just out of the shower. Anyone remember the plot to this thing?
** [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Something about a druggie trying to get rid of her daughter, right?]]
* ''Film/ShockCorridor'': Constance Towers's extended striptease isn't the only thing that sticks in your head, but it certainly is unforgettable.
* ''Film/{{Sirens}}''. Full frontal nudity from many famous ladies ([[Creator/ElleMacPherson Elle [=MacPherson=]]] and Portia de Rossi, to name two). The dream scene in the lake is the one most folks remember.
* ''{{SOB}}'': This satire on the nature of Hollywood should be remembered as William Holden's final movie. Instead most people remember it as the movie in which Julie Andrews and Creator/RosannaArquette appeared topless. (The Julie Andrews scene was a major plot point of the film, as a sleazy producer is trying to get Andrews' character to show her breasts for {{Fanservice}}).
* ''Film/{{Species}}'' was a pretty forgettable sci-fi horror film. The only reason anybody still remembers it is because the hot blonde in it spent a lot of time walking around naked.
* ''Film/{{Stealth}}'', with JessicaBiel in a bikini. It was only one scene.
** She also wears very snug military uniforms, to the extent that ''The New York Times'''s review of the movie includes the phrase "wiggling her shapely rear" in the very first sentence.
* Everyone remembers ''Film/StrawDogs'' for three reasons:
** Susan George gets raped [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization and likes it]].
** '''Giant beartrap.'''
** Creator/DustinHoffman going ''batshit crazy''.
* ''Film/{{Swordfish}}'' is the movie where Creator/HalleBerry showed her breasts for the first time. There was also something about a hacker...
** To the point that a good deal of marketing focused on how much extra (reputedly $500,000) she was paid specifically for agreeing to flash her breasts for no particularly good reason in a single scene.
** Her film ''Monster's Ball'' is largely remembered the same way because of her steamy sex scene, but it was good enough on its own merits to win her an Oscar.
*** The scene in question is known equally for the {{narm}} attached to it ([[MemeticMutation "Make me feel GGGRRRRRRD!"]])
* If you've ever heard of ''Film/TheTallGuy'' at all, you'll know it as that movie where Creator/JeffGoldblum and Creator/EmmaThompson [[DestructoNookie get naked and break shit]].
* As the WhoWearsShortShorts page says about ''TamaraDrewe'', specifically Gemma Arterton as the title character strutting about in said clothing, "No one remembers the movie; everyone remembers the trailer that primarily featured this sequence."
* From the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' franchise:
** ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' is oft remembered for having a hot female with no clothes on at the start of the movie, who then gets into tight leathers for the rest, and can [[GagBoobs INFLATE HER OWN BOOBS]].
** ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'' homages this with Moon Bloodgood showing her boobs. Scene was cut from the theatrical release to qualify for a PG-13 rating, but was re-inserted into the special extended Blu-Ray edition. Watch the movie with this scene included, and Sam Worthington, Creator/ChristianBale, AntonYelchin and everybody else being all angsty doesn't matter anymore.
* The common consensus is that the best scene from the ''Film/LaraCroftTombRaider'' movie is when [[ActionGirl Lara]] is showering, then gets out of shower and briefly uses a ModestyTowel before casting it aside for a ToplessnessFromTheBack shot and side boob.
* What makes ''Film/TotalRecall1990'' different from all the other Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger movies? Two -- no, in this movie it's ''[[http://i.somethingawful.com/inserts/articlepics/photoshop/04-25-08-movies/KillerFuzzball.jpg three]]'' [[{{Multiboobage}} things]].
* JamieLeeCurtis in ''Film/TrueLies''. Screw the Harrier chases, the many, many explosions or Arnie at his LargeHam best. Everyone remembers Curtis' shadowy striptease first and foremost. The backseat {{Catfight}} between Curtis and TiaCarrere comes second.
* ''Film/TheUnborn'' is all about Odette Yustman's ass. So much that [[MaleGaze her butt is the main focus]] on [[http://i.imgur.com/cKenann.jpg the poster]].
* ''U Turn'', or that one movie where Creator/JenniferLopez has a sex scene.
** ''Money Train'', which stars Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes, and a rare sight of Jennifer Lopez's bare bosoms.
* ''Film/UnderSiege'' is that movie where Erika Eleniak jumps out of a cake topless.
** Or more accurately, the movie where Erika Eleniak jumps out of a cake topless then later on Tommy Lee Jones gets a knife stuck in his head.
* For most of Website/{{tumblr}}/ Creator/TomHiddleston fans in general, ''Unrelated'' is that one movie where Tom jumps naked into a pool.
* ''Film/VarsityBlues''? Isn't that the movie where some chick comes out in a whipped cream bikini?
** Of course not. It was also the movie where high school students discover their teacher is secretly a stripper.
* {{Subverted}} with ''Film/UnderTheSkin''. While the movie may become known as "that movie where Creator/ScarlettJohansson gets naked," the way the scenes play out are more disturbing than erotic. Than again, there will still be those turned on.
* Never mind Tim Roth doing a MoneyDearBoy role, ''VirginTerritory'' is all about Hayden Christensen making whoopee with naughty nuns.
* ''Film/{{Walkabout}}'' had a barely-legal Creator/JennyAgutter going full-frontal in a lake. Also something about Australia. We think.
* From what is said on the message boards on the IMDB you'd think that ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' consisted of 160 minutes of a blue penis. Now with [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v33/youkai/watchmen.png helpful pie chart]].
* ''Film/{{Whiteout}}'' had a scene where Kate Beckinsale was [[{{Fanservice}} taking off her clothes]] before [[ShowerScene taking a shower]] even though such "Hollywood Showers" are not allowed at the South Pole due to water restrictions. What's the plot of the movie? Nobody seems to remember.
* The most memorable things about ''The Warrior and the Sorceress'', aside from the fact that it stars a sword-wielding David Carradine, are the fact that the Sorceress is topless the entire time, and a [[MultiBoobage woman with four breasts]] who has an erotic dance scene and then [[{{Squick}} tries to kill Carradine with a tentacle that comes out of her vagina.]] She's even [[http://www.impawards.com/1984/warrior_and_the_sorceress.html on the poster for the movie]] (unless it's meant to be some ''other'' chick with four boobs), with the Sorceress nowhere to be seen.
* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' might as well have been named ''Jessica Rabbit Makes It Okay To Think An Animated Character Is Hot''. She's not bad. She's just drawn that way.
* ''Film/TheWholeNineYards''. There was the toplessness of Amanda Peet, and something about money...
* ''Film/WildOrchid'' is only remembered for the love scene near the end between Creator/MickeyRourke and Carre Otis that, in the unrated version at least, was so realistic that close to a quarter century later people are still debating over whether they did the nasty for real (for the record, both actors deny it).
* ''Film/WildSide'': Try to remember anything else about this movie besides the two-minute-plus lesbian love scene between Anne Heche and Joan Chen.
* ''Film/WildThings'' is actually a pretty good "whodunit?" that has twists and turns... and DeniseRichards' champagne-covered breast implants. Mention ''Wild Things'' to a male and ask them to name a scene from it; it'll either be that or the part where she makes out with Neve Campbell's body double. Ask a female, and it'll be Kevin Bacon's junk.
* ''Film/TheWingsOfTheDove'', a lengthy involved plot about some people in olde timey days trying to get rich, and then right at the end several glorious minutes of Creator/HelenaBonhamCarter speechifying in the buff.
* ''Film/WithnailAndI'': A complex and tragic BlackComedy about the end of a friendship and a metaphor for the end of TheSixties? Maybe, but it's also that movie where Creator/PaulMcGann is almost naked a lot.
* ''WomenInLove''. The 1969 adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's novel included Glenda Jackson's Academy Award winning performance, but today, the film is largely remembered for the sweaty naked wrestling scene with Alan Bates and OliverReed, and having one of the first depictions of male frontal nudity in a major studio film.
* ''Film/YesterdayTodayAndTomorrow'' was an acclaimed Italian picture that won the UsefulNotes/AcademyAwardForBestForeignLanguageFilm, so it probably isn't forgotten. But let's face it, it's best remembered for the scene where Creator/SophiaLoren does a strip tease for her lover.
* ''Film/{{Zapped}}'', the 1982 Teen SexComedy in which Scott Baio uses magic powers to make Heather Thomas's sweater pop open and to blow the dresses off of every cute girl at the prom.

[[folder:Literature]]
* There's a very graphic and deeply disturbing female-on-male rape scene early in the first book of ''Literature/{{Orcs}}''. It seems that a lot of people stopped reading there.
* D.H. Lawrence is widely known for ''LadyChatterleysLover'', and that book is remembered for one specific scene. It could even be argued that the ''entire book'' is this trope; it's hardly the author's best work, but it's still the most recognized Lawrence title. Why? The entire book is about sex. In the UK, it's arguably for the fact that it being about sex resulted in an obscenity trial. The jury found the experience to be rather stimulating.
* ''Literature/HowNotToWriteANovel'' offers three examples for the 'list of ingredients' method of descriptions gone wrong: the living room, the zoo, and the porn studio. Which one does everyone remember? The porn studio.
* Stephen King's ''{{It}}''. Yeah, that one scene in the sewer, which wasn't in the TV miniseries for obvious reasons.
** And that other similar scene which also wasn't included in the TV miniseries for even more obvious reasons.
** Closest we get to {{Fanservice}} in the miniseries? [[FanDisservice Eddie Kaspbrak (the scrawny, asthmatic kid) being confronted by Pennywise in the boys' shower at school while wearing only a towel.]]
* Terry Pratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels tend to avoid or skirt over sex or erotica. However, Discworld/{{Thud}} has a scene which smacks of genuine contrivance, maybe as a TakeThat to fanfic writers who insist on pairing off the most unlikely characters in contrived scenes where they inevitably get off with each other. Sally and Angua end up knee-deep in mud, naked, and squaring off for what could either end up as a cat-fight or something else; Sally subverts either result with a joke about how people might so much want to see this that they'd pay good money for it.
** In-universe it's occasionally noted that most people come to the Ankh-Morpork Royal Art Museum only to see the painting ''Three Large Pink Women and One Piece of Gauze'' and nothing else.
* ''Literature/FlowersInTheAttic'' by V.C. Andrews is, to hear both its fans and critics tell it, a story all about a really romantic or incredibly creepy sex scene involving underage BrotherSisterIncest; a rather awkward one that lasts for all of about half a page in a 400+ page paperback. It's a ''horror novel'', people.
* In the ''SwordOfTruth'', there are a few examples that stand out above all the others, though there's [[AuthorAppeal enough material]] that most of them don't even stand out.
** The "spirit house" becomes a running gag between Richard and Kahlan.
** Kahlan, leading the D'Harans against the Order, wearing only bodypaint.
** Nicci, riding out against an army with her dress pulled down so nobody would notice her face.
** Nicci, abusing the Maternity spell she cast on Kahlan.
** Denna. But [[{{Squick}} we wish we could forget]].
* Discussed in ''Literature/DaveBarrySleptHere'', where Creator/AnnetteFunicello is cited as the cultural contributions made by ''The Mickey Mouse Club'':
-->Annette had a ''major'' impact on many us male Baby Boomers, especially the part where she came marching out wearing a T-shirt with her name printed on it, and some of the letters were considerably closer to the camera than others. If you get our drift.
* Vatsayana's ''Kama Sutra'' is an important Hindu philosophical text that includes detailed discussions about the spiritual components of pleasure and beauty, the challenges of balancing pleasurable living with virtuous behavior, and the elements of healthy human relationships. It also includes several rather graphic discussions of sex. Guess which part most Westerners are aware of? [[note]] No, despite what you may have have heard, the ''Kama Sutra'' is ''not'' a "sex manual". While it discusses sexuality and relationships at length, it also discusses many more innocent forms of personal pleasure, such as food and flower-arranging.[[/note]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' has [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ldw74aKWaZ1qd1awpo1_500.jpg shirtless Arthur.]] Starting with season 2, that happens on average at least once an episode. Oh, and also, [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EFIeAmK8nkQ/ToDigxVbABI/AAAAAAAAEs4/PzlWwbhgX2Y/s1600/id_10477.jpg Leon, Gwaine, and Percival.]] [[http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/25500000/Season-4-Cast-Photos-merlin-on-bbc-25523059-1707-2560.jpg Gwen's cleavage]] [[http://www.google.com/imgres?q=gwen+the+hunter%27s+heart&um=1&hl=en&biw=1366&bih=643&tbm=isch&tbnid=Em-NJMZQywmTEM:&imgrefurl=http://merlin.wikia.com/wiki/File:Gwen_in_the_hunter%27s_heart_2.jpg&docid=yd3eM8K62O8MuM&itg=1&imgurl=http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120221203318/merlin1/images/e/eb/Gwen_in_the_hunter%2527s_heart_2.jpg&w=400&h=225&ei=TWaDT-afMYvUgAfElY34Bw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=503&vpy=364&dur=1195&hovh=168&hovw=300&tx=175&ty=102&sig=100602016818766572958&page=1&tbnh=102&tbnw=181&start=0&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:14,s:0,i:97 and harem-girl outfit.]] And [[http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/25200000/Morgana-Merlin-season-4-katie-mcgrath-25207796-1707-2560.jpg Morgana's black lace dress.]] Not to mention shirtless Lancelot in ''Lancelot du Lac'' coming ''dripping wet'' out of the middle of the Lake.
* ''Series/{{Oz}}'': That's the show where Christopher Meloni and his co-mates get naked and show off their penises before raping other naked guys in the shower, right? Was there also great dialogue, realistic characters, great acting, and amazing storylines, or was that just a rumor?
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has a lot of cases:
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber "The Mind Robber"]] is a surreal story set in a world of fairy tales, mythology, classical literature... and [[{{Zeerust}} a newspaper comic serial from the year 2000]] and what's the first image that comes to mind? Zoe's bum. In a tight catsuit.
** Jon Pertwee's tenure as the 3rd Doctor is infamous for the number of times companion Jo Grant (played by Katy Manning) inadvertently(?) flashed her knickers on camera, thanks in large part to the character's entire wardrobe seeming to consist of nothing but the shortest miniskirts the costume department could get away with putting her in on the air.
** "The Deadly Assassin" - an OutOfGenreExperience, WorldBuilding of Time Lord culture, a NoirEpisode, a horrible zombie Master, as much SurrealHorror as the BBC budget could allow, so shockingly violent it nearly got the show canned. It is remembered for all of that, but you'll still be hard-pressed to find a member of the Classic Who EstrogenBrigade that isn't going to mention the fact that Tom Baker spends most of the story wearing a see-through white shirt and there's [[SexySoakedShirt a bit where he gets wet and strikes a pose]].
** Pretty much the entirety of Louise Jameson's (Leela) time as companion to the 4th Doctor. Tight leather mini-dresses split to the hip, prominent cleavage, and plenty of poses emphasizing both.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath "City of Death"]] has sparkling Creator/DouglasAdams wit, a man aging to death and the villain being defeated by a punch. Main popular memory -- Lalla Ward in a SexySchoolwoman outfit.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E4Terminus "Terminus"]] has a leprosy-like disease, a man going back in time and creating the universe, and Turlough with the Black Guardian. What does everyone remember? Nyssa taking off her skirt.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E5PlanetofFire "Planet of Fire"]] has ''two'' examples of this trope, one for the boys and one for the girls. What do the boys remember? Peri in a Bikini. What do the the girls remember? Turlough taking off his tight short shorts and wearing a wet shirt and speedos.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E6TheCavesOfAndrozani "The Caves of Androzani"]] features the regeneration from Fifth to Sixth and actually has the Fifth Doctor being {{badass}}. The memory? The excellent view of Peri's trembling cleavage while she's holding the regenerating Doctor.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E3TheCurseOfFenric "The Curse of Fenric"]] completes the epic storyline of the struggle against the dark gods and cosmic forces the Doctor has been playing TheChessmaster against. The memory? Half a second of Sophie Aldred's knickers.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E12BadWolf "Bad Wolf"]], where everybody is fighting for their lives in game shows that try to kill you, and what does everyone remember? Jack Harkness, naked in front of millions of viewers. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Their viewing figures just went up.]]
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]], part 1 features the return of the Master and Donna's grandfather Wilf and the Doctor coming to terms with his impending regeneration, as well as [[spoiler:the return of the Time Lords themselves while the Master turns almost every human into clones of himself]]. What do people remember? TheMaster a) emerging naked from a swirl of blue energy b) tied up to a chair with several straps, with his legs spread c) the Master wearing ''a red leather collar with a leash'' d) the Master in ''a straitjacket'' and finally, e) ''the Master in a pink dress''.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour "The Eleventh Hour"]], Eleven's very first episode: we have a gambit involving a computer virus that draws the authorities to the MonsterOfTheWeek, as well as an undertone of abandonment as Amy Pond waits for 14 years for her Doctor. What do people recall? The Doctor of stripping down in front of his companion Amy and her friend Rory. Naturally, Rory looks away, but Amy doesn't -- and neither do the fangirls. Of course, what any guy who watched the episode will remember is Amy in the police uniform.
* Remember the episode where ''Series/MorkAndMindy'' first kissed? No? Remember the one where Mork befriended a caterpillar and then thought it died when really it was just becoming a butterfly? No? Remember the one where Mork was captured by the sexy Nectrotons, whose leader was played by Raquel Welch?
* The TV Movie ''The Girl, the Gold Watch, And Everything'' would be completely forgotten were it not for Pam Dawber's brief nude scene (badly lit, but still pretty daring for U.S. television).
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}''. Creator/YvonneStrahovski regularly strapping weaponry on whilst wearing underwear. Also, the constant presence of the {{Catfight}}.
* ''TheDukesOfHazzard'' is primarily remembered for a pair of short shorts. They are even commonly called "Daisy Dukes" after the character that wears them.
* The promo for the shocking, [[TearJerker heartbreaking]], Emmy-winning ''Series/{{House}}'' episode "House's Head" featured its scene of Cuddy doing a strip tease for House. (The episode itself did, too, [[NeverTrustATrailer for a wonder]].)
* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Trash" the crew stole something and then there was Mal, [[SceneryCensor in the desert, naked.]]
** I'm still thinking of the episode "War Stories", where Inara takes a female client to bed.....I'll be in my bunk.....
** It is also the series where ''one of the main characters'' is a prostitute. Oh, sorry, [[InsistentTerminology "Companion"]].
* ''Series/{{Brookside}}'', the soap opera set in Liverpool where Anna Friel kissed another girl. One of the first acknowledgements on British TV that lesbians existed, and avaunt-garde for its time.
* Janet Jackson's "[[NippleAndDimed wardrobe malfunction]]" at the 2004 SuperBowl Halftime Show caused a ''shitstorm'' of controversy which is still occasionally joked about, and the NFL has only brought in "safe" classic rock bands (like Prince, apparently) ever since. Now do you remember who was actually ''playing'' in the championship game that year?[[note]]The New England Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers 32-29. Now you do.[[/note]] Which is sad, because it was one of the most exciting Super Bowls ever.
** Even more so because most people do not actually remember the scene as it happened, since it was over far too quickly to notice unless you were paying complete attention. That, or you thought it was AllPartOfTheShow when it happened. Most people know the event [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing only from its media coverage]].
** This was also subverted in the same Super Bowl. Everybody remembers Janet Jackson. Decidedly fewer remember the guy dancing in the end zone with a football over his wedding tackle.[[note]]This may be less remembered because CBS didn't show the streaker on TV, while Janet's breast briefly made it to camera.[[/note]]
* Successfully done in ''Series/{{Xena|WarriorPrincess}}'' and ''Series/{{Hercules|TheLegendaryJourneys}} Hercules'', less so in ''Series/{{Sheena}}'' and ''Series/TheBeastmaster'', each for the guys and girls respectively. Then came the to a lesser extent for both ''Series/{{Andromeda}}''.
** Most people only remember the series ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' as ''Xena: Lesbian Princess'' because no one can remember anything else other than [[HoYay Gabrielle and Xena kissing and bathing together]]. The writers admitted to keeping the UnresolvedSexualTension all along.
** Some people only remember Xena because someone discovered a new transneptunian object bigger than Pluto, causing a major stir in the astronomy community, and temporarily named it "Xena." Its tiny moon was dubbed "Gabrielle" upon being discovered.
* The ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The Menagerie" is often remembered for being "TheOneWith the [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe green chick]]." SFDebris puts it best:
-->"The late Susan Oliver. She's a talented actress, author, director, a pioneer of women's aviation... and if you go to her Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} page, ''this'' is the image of her they put up: her dancing as the green woman!" [[note]] The image on Wikipedia has since been changed, possibly in response to this review[[/note]]
* In response to low ratings, Jeri Ryan was injected into the latter half of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Even today, most fans speak fondly of Seven of Nine's stupidly-tight catsuits, choosing to overlook such a cold-blooded ratings ploy. The show benefited greatly from Ryan's acting chops and respect for her character, elevating what could have been a fluff role. So, as ratings ploys go, this was an inspired one, even if the rest of ''Voyager'' remains fuzzy.
* The second ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode, "The Naked Now", was a sequel to ''TOS''' "The Naked Time". But the only thing anyone remembers is Tasha Yar checking to see if Data is fully functional.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}''
** Lois Lane is Superman's future wife and star journalist of the ''Daily Planet''. In the opening credits, her background scene is still her stepping out of the water in a bikini.
** Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl likes to wear very skimpy outfits, and wanders around the house in only her underwear. However, [[JustifiedTrope considering her ensemble in every other appearance...]]
* ''TopGear'', Series 13 -- few people remember where the presenters went to do a classic rally (Majorca), but everyone remembers James May's co-driver: buxom glamor model Madison Welch.
* ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'' features lots of beautiful [[InnocentFanserviceGirl constantly naked people]] frolicking and ElizaDushku in dominatrix outfits.
* ''Series/TheAvengers'' episode "A Touch of Brimstone" is the one where Mrs. Peel wears the [[{{Fanservice}} leather bustier]].
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' has many, many memorable moments.
** But arguably none more memorable than Jennifer Aniston in the Slave Leia outfit.
** Except perhaps when [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Phoebe and Rachel kiss]].
* ''Series/TrueBlood'' is that show where Creator/AnnaPaquin gets naked. A lot.
** And has lots of sex with her vampire boyfriend who has a weird way of pronouncing her name.
** And a tall, blonde vampire having sex at warp speed with a hot Estonian dancer... who also has sex with [[HoYay Pam]].
** And said blonde vampire having [[WallBangHer sex with his hot sister]] [[spoiler: she's not his biological sister]]
* The makers of ''Series/{{Californication}}'' know that everyone remembers the stripper, and consequently there are a lot of babes getting naked throughout the course of the show.
* Audiences can't seem to agree what they like more about ''Series/{{Dexter}}'': the sex, the violence or the creepy intro.
* ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}: Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' is mostly about Creator/SummerGlau in her underwear and various other abbreviated outfits. The marketing people played this up with the famous promotional image of Summer Glau's partially-disassembled robot character, wearing nothing but GodivaHair. The show is notable in that two groups of people will remember it for different things: the first for Summer Glau, and the second for Creator/LenaHeadey.
* ''Series/TheDailyShow'' had a bit of fun when GeorgeTakei got married and out of all the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' stills available, the news put up a picture of Sulu fencing shirtless. "Oh my" indeed.
* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' keeps it off camera, but has an amusing in universe example in the season one episode "Missing Kitty".
-->'''Cop''': Well, we have a restaurant full of people saying that you threatened Kitty the last time she was seen.\\
'''Michael''': How does anybody even remember this?\\
'''Cop''': She showed her knobs in a Steakhouse, sir.
* The Creator/{{BBC}} miniseries of ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'' is remembered by many female viewers for the part in which Creator/ColinFirth [[SexySoakedShirt dives into a pond]].[[note]] So infamous is this scene that a massive statue of a wet Creator/ColinFirth as Darcy was residing in the middle of a lake in Hyde Park. [[http://www.howaboutwe.com/date-report/there-is-a-giant-inflatable-mr-darcy-floating-in-londons-hyde-park/# Seriously]] [[/note]].
* It appears the DiscoveryChannel website attempted to invoke this one on those who browsed the ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' [[http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/mythbusters/photogalleries/photogalleries.html photo galleries]], inviting us to see the "Bathtub Test" album by saying "See production stills -- including pictures of a half-naked Adam -- from episode 19".
* For some reason, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has the rather bad habit of [[{{Sexposition}} laying down important exposition while sex is happening in the scene]]. Episode 7 had Petyr Baelish delivering a rather important, character-defining monologue in the midst of making two whores "play" with each other.
-->'''TelevisionWithoutPity Recap:''' I really can't emphasize enough how distracting it is that he's delivering this monologue while two naked ladies are theatrically pleasuring each other.
** "The action and/or [[AnyoneCanDie beheadings]] are slowing down too much in this scene! Bring out the giant retard walking around with his dick hanging out for no reason!"
** Podrick Payne has received almost none of his characterization from the books [[note]](in which he's a shy and awkward yet stubbornly loyal 10-year-old orphan)[[/note]], which may have had the producers concerned that viewers didn't know who he was. Cue a prolonged sequence in which Tyrion arranges for Podrick to be serviced by three prostitutes, who subsequently refuse payment for it, followed by TWO scenes of other characters discussing why they did such a thing. If that doesn't get people to remember him, nothing will.
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'''s ''A Scandal in Belgravia''... That's the one where both [[NakedFirstImpression Irene Adler]] and the [[ModestyBedsheet great detective himself]] are naked at some point, right?
* ''Series/StargateSG1'' has the episode where everyone is infected with an anti-Goa'uld device, but that's sort of secondary to Dr. Fraiser opening up her shirt (and revealing her bra) because she's infected and hot.
** The pilot episode "Children of the Gods", had full-frontal nudity in its original airing on Showtime. It was edited out in later airings on regular cable (replaced by a couple long closeups of Teal'c's face), but is retained in the DVD release.
* ''NYPDBlue'' is about butts and cops. But mostly butts. [[FanDisservice Dennis Franz' butt]].
* The 2005 series of UK ''BigBrother''. Kinga, on her first night found a novel place to put an empty wine bottle. Anyone remember who won the competition?
** [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Anthony.]]
* In the 6th season of ''Series/{{Survivor}}''(The Amazon). The Winner Jenna comment will be best know for stripping for Peanut Butter and Oreos along with her friend Heidi.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker''
** It's actually surprisingly hard to find clips that don't contain Cara or Kahlan, though mostly Cara. Why does this count as this trope? Tight red leather. Low neckline. Tabrett Bethell. On second thought, this might not be such a bad thing.
** Bath house scene.
** Everyone remembers that Richard's first scene was shirtless.
** Pretty much the only main character who ''hasn't'' had this treatment is Zedd, although even he is remembered for his NakedFirstImpression with [[FanDisservice nothing but a live chicken]] to block the view [[http://thetorchonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/zedd.jpg (thankfully.)]]
* Say ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'', and the the reaction is most likely to be "gay sex". While it's true that the show mentioned gay sex at least once an episode, and the straight main character was briefly turned gay in only the second episode, and there was at least one episode mostly focused on a character having gay sex with an alien, it barely ever actually ''showed'' the sex.
* [[Series/KamenRiderOOO That Kamen Rider series]] where the main character is constantly seen in nothing but his boxers.
* Francois Arnaud of ''TheBorgias'' mentioned in an interview that everyone wants to talk about his character's leather pants and [[IncestYayShipping extremely]] [[IncestSubtext close]] relationship with his sister. Admittedly, the incest thing is kind of a big part of the [[TruthInTelevision Borgia legend]].
* ''Series/TheLWord'' is a softcore lesbian porn show with boring dialogues in-between that nobody that matters cares about.
--> '''Series/{{House}}:''' You may as well turn the sound off until the interesting parts show up.
* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' became infamous for Jolene Blalock showing the top half of her bum in one episode, wearing a [[HandOrObjectUnderwear hand bra]] in another,[[note]]Ironically, that was Linda Park, not Jolene Blalock[[/note]] and getting oily in the decontamination room in many other episodes.
* Mention ''Series/DarkAngel'' and most people will think of Creator/JamesCameron, unusually for James Cameron projects, second. What comes first? Creator/JessicaAlba. Not Max--Creator/JessicaAlba.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' is best known for three things. One of those things is its ridiculously attractive cast.
* Mention ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' and people will think of two things: the ten Red Ranger CrossOver and the previous year's Pink Ranger in [[HellBentForLeather head to toe leather]].
** ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' is basically a DarkerAndEdgier season with a Red Ranger that [[BattleStrip can't keep his shirt on]], a [[MostCommonSuperPower well-endowed]], half naked JunglePrincess, and a reformed villainess that is still HellBentForLeather.
* ''{{Series/Heroes}}'' is that show where a whole load of stuff about eclipses, helices, and conspiracies to take over the world keeps getting in the way of HaydenPanettiere being all bouncy, cheerleadery[[note]] even though by the final season her character was no longer a cheerleader[[/note]] and indestructible and ZacharyQuinto and Milo Ventimiglia being all broody and [[ShirtlessScene forgetting their shirts]]. And indestructible.
* Before the mini-series ''Literature/{{Labyrinth}}'' had even aired, it was being anticipated as the show in which KatieMcGrath would get naked. The very first clips uploaded onto Website/YouTube? Her nude scenes, of course.
* ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand'' is nicknamed "Spartacus: [[{{Gorn}} Blood]] and Boobs".
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' has this tendency pretty strongly. But the strongest example is the episode "Coyote Piper." This episode is best known for Piper doing a sexy dance in a ShoutOut to the movie CoyoteUgly. The rest of the episode has nothing to do with the movie, or coyotes, but the episode was named after that one {{Fanservice}} scene which has only minor importance to the plot.
* And ''Series/CharliesAngels'' is the one with the three bouncy braless chicks. Oh, they were detectives or something. (Ironically, although Cheryl Ladd's micro-bikinis from Season 2 onwards were indeed legendary, the show was actually more straightlaced than people recall.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Music/{{Madonna}}, especially by the mid-'90s.
* All anyone remembers about house music producer and DJ L'il Louis? [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Kiss_(song) That track]] with the woman having a '[[TopGear Lady Chatterley crisis]]' over it.
* All anyone remembers about [[Franchise/EvilliousChronicles The Lunacy of Duke Venomania]] is the [[{{Bishonen}} titular character]]. And the rape. And the [[BestialityIsDepraved cameo from Josephine]]. In fact, it's the best known song in the series.
* Music/NineInchNails? They're the 'fuck you like an animal' guys, right? And the guys where Bob Flanagan gets nude and gets tortured and killed by a machine whilst he basks in masochistic pleasure?
* Music/{{Shakira}}'s most famous lyric is surely the one about having "small and humble" breasts. Oh yeah, and her Music/HipsDontLie either.
* Neo-Soul singer D'angelo, got this hard after his "Untitled" music video....
* Benny Benassi's videos. "Satisfaction", for example, was a mocked-up commercial video of women in bikinis using power tools.
* The Dandy Warhols gained a lot of notoriety for keyboardist Zia [=McCabe=] playing topless. The number of guys showing up just for that caused her to pretty much stop. And their most famous song? "Bohemian Like You," due to the video with a few seconds each of full frontal nudity from a WrenchWench and a [[FanserviceWithASmile waiter]].
* MTV Brazil has stated that in their country, before Dave Grohl recorded an album with Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge, they were just the band of that guy who played naked during Rock in Rio.
* Inverted in Music/LadyGaga's "Telephone". The video is so full of {{fanservice}} and Fetish Fuel that [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment it's Best Known for]] the Sandwich. For poorly explained reasons, Gaga and Beyonce go into roadside cafe, make poisoned sandwiches that kill everyone, and seem pretty pleased with their work.
* Not quite fanservice, but the video clip for Latin band Miranda's song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8X4wF8OOKU Ritmo & Decepción]]" is only remembered by some due to the brief {{Restart}} cameo.
* Rapper ''Petey Pablo'' had a video called ''Freek-A-Leek''. But the only thing people remember from it is the model Esther Baxter aka ''"Ms. Freek-A-Leek"''.
* Christina Millian had quite a few music video's early in her career. But the only video people seem to remember is ''"Dip It Low"''.
* R&B group H-Town is mostly known for being that trio who danced like raunchy shirtless male strippers and sung ''Knockin The Boots''.
* Everybody remembers the music video for "Here I Go Again" by Music/{{Whitesnake}} because it features 1980s hottie Tawny Kitaen writhing around sensuously on the hood of a car. The video became even ''more'' famous when viewers discovered that there's a nipple slip that the censors missed (the video was quickly edited to remove the split-second of nudity).
* Music/DavidLeeRoth once did a cover of Music/TheBeachBoys classic "California Girls". The only reason anybody still remembers Roth's version is because the music video featured more girls in bikinis than Cancun during Spring Break.
* Some of the more positive Website/YouTube/Failblog comments regarding the music video for "Dying Naked" by Music/{{Skelteria}} were about the Reaper Girl.
* Music/DonnaSummer had a decades-long career, yet is best remembered for faking a bunch of orgasms on "Love To Love You Baby."
* While Tiffany (last name Darwish) is still best known as one of the most popular mall singers of the 1980s (she's the redhead, the blonde was Debbie Gibson), she has been singing and recording albums ever since. She released an album in 2000 called "The Color of Silence," which was highly praised and considered one of the best pop albums of the year. However, it wasn't until she did a ContractualPurity-shattering photoshoot for ''Playboy'' that she got any mainstream attention to let people know the damn thing existed.
* "Wrecking Ball"? Oh, you mean the music video where Music/MileyCyrus rides a {{styrofoam|Rocks}} [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin wrecking ball]] like a tire swing naked? You might also remember her [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything licking the sledgehammer]].
* French Kiss, a house-dance track by producer Lee Lewis. A 2 minute breakdown featuring a woman making, ahem, "lady noises".
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Pinball]]
* Creator/SternElectronics' ''Pinball/{{Viper}}'', the game that everyone remembers for the naked chrome {{Fembot}} on the backglass.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Religion]]
* Mary Magdalene's status as "Prostitute" is [[PopularHistory firmly ingrained in descriptions of her]], although not in Literature/TheBible. Compare how often Matthew's old job of "Tax Collector" is referred to.
** When "David danced before the [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Lord ]]
, what was he wearing? If you said he was naked, congratulations, you were too caught up in the titillating idea that he was naked to read what it says he ''was'' wearing[[note]]2 Samuel 6:14 says "a linen ephod"; 1 Chronicles 15:27 agrees and also says "a robe of fine linen", and neither precludes the possibility that he was wearing more[[/note]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Mention the card Elvish Ranger to any ''MagicTheGathering'' fan and prepare to hear about [[http://magiccards.info/ai/en/67.html its art featuring an elf woman in a]] FurBikini. Nobody seems to know that the card came with an alternate art version [[http://magiccards.info/ai/en/68.html featuring a conservatively-dressed male elf]] or [[http://magiccards.info/po/en/90.html the other printing with a very conservatively dressed female elf.]]
** [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=201191 Gwendlyn Di Corci.]] Players remember the art of a mostly naked woman, but probably don't remember whatt he card does.
* All most ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' fans seem to remember about [[ChurchMilitant the Sisters of Battle]] is that they're an AmazonBrigade in a ''very'' male-dominated setting, and that one of their troop options literally wear nothing but three scraps of paper (and a [[ChainsawGood Chainsaw Sword]]). Also, apparently the Dark Eldar do nothing but rape everything to death. As do [[TheHedonist Slaanesh worshipers]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* ''Theatre/{{Equus}}'': That play where [[HeyItsThatGuy Harry Potter]] is naked.
** Prior to the 2007 revival, shorthand was it had [[LessDisturbingInContext something to do with naked teenagers and a horse]].
* ''TheFullMonty'': That other musical based on a film where some guys get naked. Which, to be fair, [[JustifiedTrope is what it is mostly about anyway]]...
* ''Theatre/{{Hair}}'': That musical where everyone gets naked. (Also ''OhCalcutta''.)
* ''Theatre/{{Salome}}'': Richard Strauss's {{opera}} in particular is best known for the "Dance of the Seven Veils" (as in, the title character takes them off).
* ''Frankenstein'': That play where, depending on the night, BenedictCumberbatch or JonnyLeeMiller would open the show naked.
* The stage adaptation of ''Film/TheGraduate'': Mrs. Robinson gets naked on stage (actresses in that role have included Anne Archer, Amanda Donahoe, and Linda Gray).

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* The ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' series. Full stop. Even though it's easily one of the best 3D fighting game franchises in the market on its own merits, the vast majority of people only remember the anatomically impossible female fighters and their JigglePhysics, for better or for worse.
** Mind you, Tecmo isn't trying to mask it or anything. They ran straight to the endzone with that knowledge (and zero regret) when promoting ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jfzh2s3jlE Dead or Alive 3]]''. Even ''5'', which tried to tone down the "doll-like" features of their female fighters and make them more natural looking, offered all sorts of sexy incentives for preorders like fuzzy bunny bikini costumes and squishy mousepads.
** Also the ''Xtreme'' series as a volleyball/jet ski game is basically the video game development equivalent of an ExcusePlot. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fp2yw6OCJg Observe.]] Did you notice much sports action in that trailer?
* For ''VideoGame/DragonsLair'', everyone remembers [[DamselInDistress Princess Daphne]] who wears a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit.
* ''{{Skullgirls}}'' has a rather cool art style, a good story for a fighter, some interesting characters with personalities that shows they actually have more depth to them then just their looks, some even having a tragic past but still been an up beat inspiration and good role model, and is an overall fun and solid tournament fighter but most people who haven't played the game for more then 10 minutes or at all often get stuck on its admittedly not so hidden fan service. Keep in mind said fan service is played for laughs and is only focused on for a few moments to deliver a punchline or two once in a while and then the game moves on and usually stays focused on the story for the most part.
* ''VideoGame/DantesInferno'' is about Lucifer's enormous schlong. Or it's about a more action-y take on one of the best known depictions of hell, and quite possibly being the first mass marketed media about the subject for a while.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2''. The plot? The GuideDangIt HundredPercentCompletion? The triumphant return of the Franchise/FinalFantasy Job System last seen in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics''? It's all overshadowed by the girls' {{stripperific}} dresspheres.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', the 33cm shoe is on the other foot. Good luck explaining to a fangirl that Snow Villiers isn't the game's main character. Why is that? The ''length'' of time spent developing his personality doesn't seem to be a ''big'' part of ''it''. And the part where he [[ShirtlessScene shows off his]] [[MrFanservice sculpted muscular]] [[BandageBabe bandaged torso]].
** Pretty boy Noctis in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. It helps that 90% of all the trailers so far consist of close-ups of his handsome face, as he sits there looking cool or goes to town on some mooks. One of the earliest trailers also had a lovingly crafted cutscene of him wearing a dashing designer suit.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' had [[PettingZooPeople bunny girl]] Fran, and some other people. And Princess Redbutt.
*** And for the women, Balthier. Nothing particularly Fanservice-y happens to him, but he is still very nice to look at.
** And take it all the way to 1988 and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''. [[TheHero Firion]] gets seduced by a [[CuteMonsterGirl lamia queen]] disguised as the princess. Prior to ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]]'', if you remembered just one thing about ''II'', it was that. Considering that SquareEnix themselves play it up, though, you can't really be blamed for it.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' has a rather memorable scene of Lightning getting magically stripped nude of her regular outfit and then having it replaced by her new, more fanservicey armor.
* Why should you play ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}''? You get to flirt with all the women! And there's nudity! And something about Communist robots taking over the world with ReplicantSnatching, probably.
** Might as well play ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}'' for the same reason. You can flirt with every girl in the game; you can even grope them!
* The way some people talk about ''Franchise/MassEffect'', you'd think the game is nothing but [[RatedMForMoney full-on]] [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe alien lesbian sex]]...[[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer that never actually happens]]. As a meta-example, it seems like the only thing the die-hard fans care about is the romances.
* There are some people who have never even played ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', yet almost [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom everyone]] knows about Krystal, [[ChainmailBikini who mostly goes around in just a bra and a loincloth]].
* ''Franchise/TombRaider'': Lara Croft has huge guns - oh, and pistols, too. A lot of people play the game through on all difficulty levels and get all the trophies-just to unlock the bikini costumes, and to angle the camera to get the best view of Lara's ass.
* ''GrandTheftAutoIVTheLostAndDamned'': Congressman Stubbs' penis. That's it.
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'': Three words--[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot_Coffee_mod "Hot Coffee" Mod.]]
* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin''. Shahdee is a minor character who gets dispatched not far into the game, yet thanks to her [[ThongOfShielding outfit]] and [[MaleGaze introduction sequence]], many remember her like she was the focus of the game.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' is about a busty, drool-inducing, barely-clothed [[HornyDevils succubus]] [[MemeticSexGod who is sexier than sex]], wanders the earth looking for a good time, and appears in most of [[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Capcom's crossover titles]], [[SarcasmMode right]]? And sometimes people vaguely remember the CatGirl, whose motivation is, um... SavingTheOrphanage... and some kind of Chinese undead girl who has blue cleavage and attacks with... um... dunno.
** Morrigan's the sole Darkstalker in four games: ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNKMillenniumFight2000 Capcom vs. SNK]]'', ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'', and ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom''. Demitri, who is [[WordOfGod the series' protagonist]], has only shown up in two fighters: ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos SVC Chaos]]'' and ''VideoGame/CapcomFightingEvolution''. However, this only concerns fighting game appearances and Demitri has appeared in non-fighters like ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' alongside Morrigan herself. He also fits this trope in a roundabout way: Demitri himself is known more for his [[GenderBender Midnight Bliss attack that transforms male characters into attractive female versions of themselves]] and [[FanservicePack females into a more fetishy version of themselves]] ([[FanDisservice usually]]).
* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV'' was the first ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' game to have multiple party members with distinctive personalities, rather than use a predetermined party or a team of PlayerMooks. Of all the characters, MsFanservice [[{{Stripperiffic}} Maya's]] artwork is leaps and bounds more voluminous than any other character in the series.
** [[{{Stripperiffic}} Jessica]] of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'', appearing as the only one who can change outfits on maps and ''puff-puff'' the enemies into various states of confusion with her sex appeal abilities.
** Similarly, ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIII'' summed up in four words: [[ActionGirl Female Warrior]], ChainmailBikini. Most of the other female classes are also excessively popular, particularly the [[MinidressOfPower Sage]], [[NaughtyNuns Cleric]], and [[PlayboyBunny Jester]]. ''DQIII'' did (and still does) have a lot going for it such as the then-big reveal that [[spoiler:the game's a prequel to its two preceding entries (''you're'' the eponymous Erdrick/Loto whom the trilogy is named after)]], and [[spoiler:Ramia, the bird your party flies around the map on, even shows up in the [[VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII eighth game]] as the Godbird Empyrea]], but if there's one thing emblazoned in the fandom's minds, it's the women... and the game ''[[GameFavoredGender encourages]]'' this!
* In ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon FEAR]] 2'', Alma rapes you. That's right, YOU! Oh yeah and some other stuff happens.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' is that fighting game featuring [[VideoGame/FatalFury Mai]]'s {{Gainaxing}} boobs and ... oh, the rest of the fighters. It's about fighting.
* In ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'', Pyramid Head rapes things. Some say that other things happen. Though it's arguably a FanDisservice.
* Look up the soundtrack to ''VideoGame/TheHouseOfTheDeadOverkill'' sometime. Apparently, the only noteworthy song in the game is the lyrical version of the "Carny" chapter's theme, the focus of which is [[CrossesTheLineTwice a guy making love to a decomposing mutant as it's trying to kill him]].
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** Ask a ''Pokémon'' fan to think of a female character, and chances are they'll think of [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Skyla or Elesa]] first due to their [[{{Stripperiffic}} outfits]].
** [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Dawn]] is quite recalled for her short skirt, however [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Leaf's]] is barely longer.
** Leaf actually has the same size chest as May, but she's often ignored because she has yet to have a canon appearance within the games and has no anime appearances.
** And of course there's [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Cynthia]], who hangs out in a resort along with Skyla and Elesa.
* ''SummonNight'' is most well-known in the west for its {{Gay Option}}s and its other fanservices, mostly in the Swordscraft Story series though. It doesn't help that the box of one of the games displays a screen of Pratty saying she [[ItMakesSenseInContext kisses girls all the time]].
* Likewise, ''MagiciansQuestMysteriousTimes'' is known for being both an "''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' clone" and "an ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' clone where you can be gay." ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon Cute'' is also somewhat infamous within the fandom for the RomanticTwoGirlFriendship GayOption that was taken out of the international versions.
* Creator/{{Vanillaware}}'s title ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' became an example of this pretty much immediately after its characters were revealed. Fans are less concerned about the quality of the title (which, granted, is nothing to worry about since Vanillaware's releases are consistently good) and more concerned about how much Fetish Fuel the [[HotWitch Sorceress]] and {{Amazon|ianBeauty}} provide.
* ''JadeEmpire'' is that game where you can have a threesome. Oh, and something about a big guy with two axes.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is that game where you can have a foursome. Oh, and something about licking a lamppost in winter.
* Ask most people about ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' and they'll say "Yeah, I know that game. [[NeverLiveItDown Isn't it that fighting game]] with [[UnsettlingGenderReveal the boy who dresses up as a girl]]?" Yep. ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' is a game with intense fast-paced combat, an interesting {{Animesque}} setting and [[AwesomeMusic/GuiltyGear a ridiculously awesome soundtrack]], yet it is doomed to be forever remembered as "The Game That Gave Us [[WholesomeCrossdresser Bridget]]."
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is about a world of super-powered magical action girls (many of which are {{Cute Monster Girl}}s who are ReallySevenHundredYearsOld). Who have interesting ([[NoHuggingNoKissing but never romantic]]) relationships with each other. Which gives way to tons of fanart (cute, gorgeous or [[RuleThirtyFour very risque]]) and awesome music. "Shoot em ups"? What's a "shoot em up"? [[note]]Unlike other examples on this page, the creator does lament that it's not best known as a shoot em up. Bummer.[[/note]]
* ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo'' its basically just like any other ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' clone, but what makes it memorable is that the defeated characters have to strip naked, and [[{{Squick}} other stuff]].
* ''AgarestSenki'' effective uses this as a selling point. 5-generation-long romance story? The whole game is a NintendoHard with TimedMission and HundredPercentCompletion? Screw that, [[NeverTrustATrailer US publishers]] know that players are playing for fan services, and RPG elements are just extra.
* CompileHeart [[AgarestSenki may]] [[{{Neptunia}} have]] [[MugenSouls beaten]] their record with their latest game called ''VideoGame/GenkaiTotsukiMonsterMonpiece'' thanks [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=31SF5DDMu8o to this trailer.]]
* Any and all discussion of ''{{TERA}}'' will be dominated by and centered around the rights of the female playable characters to wear {{Chainmail Bikini}}s, and whether or not people who play as Elins are pedophiles because they wear the same stuff that all the other females are wearing
* ''VideoGame/MuchiMuchiPork'' is known less for the bells and whistles of a Shinobu Yagawa shmup like [[DynamicDifficulty rank]] and crazy scoring mechanics, and more for its pandering to plus-size fetishists.
* The two ''QueensBlade'' video games are creditable, if short, [[StrategyRPG strategy RPGs]] with a genuinely interesting combat system and a meaty level of [[NintendoHard challenge]]. People remember them for two things: (1) [[Anime/QueensBlade the parent franchise]] and (2) ClothingDamage.
* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' is best known among non-fans for two things: its music, and the copious amounts of fanservice and innuendos.
* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'': SamusIsAGirl, and shucks her armor and clothes in the best ending.
* ''VideoGame/{{Rust}}'': Inverted, since it's [[DoubleStandard male frontal nudity]], but yeah— you start balls-out naked, and that's about what half the internet knows about the game. There's a mosaic by default, but it can be disabled. Pants are a highly treasured bit of loot.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* The eighth issue of ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'', the most sexually explicit one, is also the most infamous.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original ]]
* A Website/YouTube video on a channel known as Vlogvetica featured a naked guy walking in the background, for maybe one second, and was never pointed out in the actual video. Guess what every single comment was about.
* "But You Screw One Goat", the former name of BestialityIsDepraved, is the punchline of a joke that owes its humor as much if not more to the trope under discussion here than the one that actually bore its name.
* From ThisWiki on the BodyPaint page at one point:
-->'''Troper:''' I saw an Israeli war movie (forget the name, sorry) that began and ended with a scene showing the protagonist and his girlfriend rubbing paint all over each other while making love. Not sure what this had to do with the rest of the movie.
-->'''Other troper:''' Who cares?
* Any sex scene in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' quite often eclipses the character. Case in point, there's a reason that She Bop (girl on girl rape) is the most infamous thread of V3. So far as characters go, Rosa Fiametta of V4 often gets this treatment, to the point where her characterisation is simplified to just being a sex maniac due to the frequency with which she gets it on.
* The Game Heroes ad where WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic gets kidnapped. Fangirls completely failed to notice what they were selling, being distracted by the pretty boy getting manhandled and a gun being put to his head.
** The ''SurfNinjas'' review is a DyingDream episode, with lots of clever SarcasmMode, a nice scene where The Other Guy and friends are looking after Critic, and Optimus Prime bringing him back to life by dying for his sins. And what do people remember? "[[ShirtlessScene GEEEEEEENIUS!]]"
** ''{{Transformers}} 3'' and ''Jungle2Jungle'' reviews...? Oh! They're the ones where Doug just shows off the epic job his wife did on messing up his neck, right?
* From the way TGWTG fandom tells it, you'd think the whole eighteen minutes of the WebVideo/{{Sonic}} movie was just Creator/DougWalker getting abused and then made to kneel.
* The ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' animated series was largely disliked except for all the women with oversized breasts.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': Today's fans enjoy talking for hours on end on how fabulously gay Larry 3000 was and the blatant homosexual innuendo that revolved around the series entirely.
* The existence of short series ''WesternAnimation/FishPolice'' is only remembered because it had lots of quite un-cartoonish passionate kissing as well as other content that was considered too risque for children's TV. It was also remembered as [[DuelingShows one of the early competitors]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (along with ''Family Dog'' and ''Capitol Critters''--a ''Simpsons'' Halloween special even had [[TakeThat a sight gag that showed those three shows on tombstones]]) that got canceled due to all three shows being critical and ratings disasters (though gaining cult followings years after being taken off the air).
* ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''
** The most memorable episode involves getting in the girls' bathroom.
** And the [[MissingEpisode banned episode]] with the lesbian bikers who invite Cow to play softball with them.
* The film ''ElArca'' is mostly remembered for Panthy's dance scene. Wasn't it also based on Noah's Ark?
* ''SymBionicTitan'''s memorable characters, great animation, and plethora of catchy music are sadly far out-shined for most by Kimmie's infamous ass dance in episode 10. Say it with us now: [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar SHAKE IT, BAKE IT, BOOTY QUAKE IT!]]
* A weird exemple when it comes to ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'', in that this isn't a fan's, but a ''writer'''s point of view. Most fans remember [[BigBad Aggregor]] as a MagnificentBastard and [[{{Badass}} the most competent villain in the show]] [[spoiler:(if a bit of an AntiClimaxBoss toward the end)]]. When asked about his opinion of the character and the reason he doesn't want to bring him back in Ben10Omniverse, however, Derrick J. Wyatt's answer usually is to complain about the fact the character ''[[WalkingShirtlessScene doesn't wear a shirt]]''.
* One of the more notable ''CatDog'' episodes is the extreme muscle growth episode "Pumped". It's most likely the only episode non-fans can remember off the top of their heads.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' was a successful children's cartoon in the '80s. What do people talk about to this day? The homosexual undertones.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Real Life ]]
* Katrina Darrell was in the auditions of Season 8 of ''Series/AmericanIdol''. This is the infamous "Bikini Girl".
* That ''American's Greatest Inventor'' show? The one with the Naughty Knot Lingerie.
* And practically every girl/girl group act who was talentless but ''hawt'' on shows like ''America's Got Talent'' and the like, where their looks swayed the male judges but not the female one(s).
* UsefulNotes/BillClinton was the President of the United States for eight years (1993-2001). The only thing that many people remember about him was his many sex scandals (Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, and, most infamous of all, Monica Lewinsky).
** Parodied on ''Series/MockTheWeek'' when the panel suggested that then British Prime Minister Gordon Brown should have a sex scandal so that no one would remember his actual policies.
* When Brandi Chastain ripped off her soccer jersey and displayed her (not particularly immodest) sports bra.
** Now name the event, year, and opponent. [[spoiler:Winning the 1999 Women's World Cup against the Chinese team]].
** Thanks to a combination of this and SmallReferencePools, quite a few people don't remember it was Chastain that actually did this and instead attribute this to Mia Hamm, since she's the only female soccer player a lot of people can name. They don't even remember the person, just the bra.
** Pointed out by ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' in their "50 Worst Things About Sports" issue, listing this and "Anna Kournikova {{panty shot}}s" as the only things that will ever be remembered about female athletes.
** And now we can add the Venus and Serena Williams in tennis; they're either known as those two AmazonianBeauty tennis sisters, or the ones that mainstreamed loud, aggressive, yet unexpectedly ''[[OrgasmicCombat passionate sounding]]'' grunts and shouts to the sport. Nevermind that for the better part of a decade they were indisputably the #1 and #2 tennis players in the world, only trading the spot back and forth between each other, and almost unbeatable as a doubles team.
** Another example is Michelle Jenneke's pre-race dancing. People remember that who couldn't tell you her name, nationality, the event she was racing in, and the outcome of the race. (Jenneke's Australian and she was racing in the 100 meter hurdles race at the 2012 World Junior Championships in Athletics in Barcelona, Spain. She finished in fifth place and American Morgan Snow won the event.)
* Any famous nude statue or painting. If someone mentions Creator/MichelangeloBuonarroti 's ''David'', the first thing that comes to mind for many people is ''not'' the fact that it portrays him before the battle with Goliath.
** Michelangelo broke from the norm with ''David'' depicting him ''about to fight'' Goliath, instead of after his victory. Thus David is missing the artifacts that would normally give it away to the uninformed viewer, such as the head of Goliath or an empty sling. This is probably what happens when you show generations of people a statue of a nude man with the only explanation "This is David, he's a beautiful work of art." The statue itself is supposed to be meaningful both in its grasp of human determination to fight oppression and in its portrayal of human anatomy, but all anybody remembers is "naked".
*** His relative lack of... um... endowment is also often brought up, as well as the fact that he is not circumcised, as would have been the Jewish practice.
**** FridgeBrilliance when you realize the reason he's... shrunken is he's [[OhCrap about to fight Goliath.]]
* Any and all "sex tapes" scandals. Whether or not the person is at all notable is irrelevant, as is the fact that it is indistinguishable from amateur porn, famous people having sex is ''clearly'' interesting. Most notably, Paris Hilton basically built ''an entire career'' using this trope.
* Creator/KimKardashian, whilst she built the majority of her career on a sex tape with singer Ray J, is basically the epitome of MsFanservice. Does anyone actually have any idea what she does? More to the point, does anyone care?
* More than a few studies have found that while sexual content makes an ad memorable it only helps them remember they saw a sexy ad, they're often no better at remembering what it was trying to sell.
* The Los Angeles debuts of Film/FourWeddingsAndAFuneral was going to be Hugh Grant's big debut in America. However, his girlfriend, unknown actress Elizabeth Hurley, showed up wearing a {{Stripperiffic}} Versace dress [[http://www.stylebiscuit.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/liz-hurley-versace1.jpg held together with giant safety pins.]] Hurley was on the cover of every fashion and celebrity publication, which both launched her career and made Versace a household name.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channing_Tatum Channing Tatum]] seems to be heading down this road. While a [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct good actor in his own right]], once news leaked that he worked as a male stripper for a year before finding success as an actor, it's all anyone wants to talk about, and although he's capitalizing on it with the movie ''Magic Mike,'' it tends to bleed over into his promotion of other movies, like ''The Vow.'' Not even the episode of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' he hosted was immune to exploiting this: he admitted it in the monologue, was shirtless in a couple of sketches, and even played a male stripper in the final sketch of the night.
* Joe Manganiello has been hit with this so hard there's [[http://bitchmagazine.org/post/big-dick-richie-joe-manganiello-magic-mike-feminist-magazine-sex-object cultural commentary]] about it (article contains some potentially-NSFW ''Magic Mike'' screenshots.) Between his WalkingShirtlessScene on ''TrueBlood'' and his run as "Big Dick Richie" in ''MagicMike,'' some female bloggers have noticed that almost every appearance he does is less about asking about him or his movie roles and more about the female presenters pawing at him, getting him to take off his shirt, and asking questions like what kind of underwear he wears. They've started to notice (some amused, some a little more worried) that women have been objectifying him the same way they complain about men objectifying women. For what it's worth, Manganiello himself seemed to get a little frustrated with it after a while, but seems to be a good sport about it, apparently saying at one point he's done all the serious classical theater already and is just having fun at this point.
* In the first 2012 Mexican presidential candidate debate, [[http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/upshot/julia-orayen-former-playboy-playmate-steals-show-mexican-223108792.html everyone remembered the former Playboy model.]]
* In spite of the number of channels it runs, the variety of movies it shows, and its attempts both past and present to make more mainstream original programming, Creator/{{Cinemax}} is still mainly remembered for soft core porn and plenty of it - to the point where it's still frequently referred to as [[FanNickname "Skinemax"]].
* Do you remember Dennis Kucinich or anything about his politics when he ran for the 2008 Democratic Nomination (against Obama and Clinton)? How about the hot six-foot tall redhead that was his wife?
