->''"Giving a reader a sex scene that is only half right is like giving her half of a kitten. It is not half as cute as a whole kitten; it is a bloody, godawful mess." ''
-->-- ''Literature/HowNotToWriteANovel''

Sometimes [[FanService sexy things]] happen in a show. Sometimes they're [[FetishFuel not entirely intended that way]], but end up being made out as such.

Sometimes the setup is there, but something kills it. Replacing a love scene's music with ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5csNO3oMrQ Thunder and Blazes]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny circus clown music]] will rapidly turn something appealing into something bizarre, absolutely wrecking any gratification the viewer might get out of it.

The writer might not realize that [[AnatomicallyImpossibleSex their knowledge of the reproductive system is limited at best.]] Or the exotic elements could just be overwhelmed by good ol' fashioned NightmareFuel. It's important to remember, however, that there is no such thing as ''complete'' Fetish Retardant, because [[RuleThirtyFour if it exists, somebody will find it arousing in spite of any efforts to make it unappealing.]]

Subtropes include NoYay, IKEAErotica, and MillsAndBoonProse.

Fetish Retardant applies only when the unsexiness is entirely unintended, perhaps making something like a sexual {{Narm}} moment. If the retarding is something added in ''on purpose'' to keep the scene from being sexy, that's FanDisservice ([[FetishFuel though this can backfire spectacularly.]])

InherentlyFunnyWords and {{Unusual Euphemism}}s are major causes of Fetish Retardant in written erotica. {{Written Sound Effect}}s often combine the two.

Contrast RuleOfSexy (although it can become this when it fails). When this is inverted, it's ThinkUnsexyThoughts. Naturally, these are Subjective, so there's no need to keep contesting entries; just bring them over to [[http://fetishfuel.wikia.com/ Fetish Fuel]].

'''''Any''''' attempt to introduce actual rules for sexual acts in roleplaying games falls under this, chiefly due to the sheer awkwardness of roleplaying sexual encounters with close friends.

This happens to a ''lot'' of fanfic (SturgeonsLaw, remember) for various reasons. IKEAErotica, creepy/weird euphemisms, AnatomicallyImpossibleSex, spelling mistakes that add fuel to the {{Narm}} fire, or just the FridgeHorror that sets in when you realize you're reading porn about a children's cartoon.

In VideoGames, most eroge/visual novel translations suffer from severely mood-breaking onomatopoeias. Fellatio simply should NOT make the sound "chap chap chap".

When this happens InUniverse, it's a kind of MomentKiller.

Fetish Retardant is accidental by definition; when it's planned, that's FanDisservice.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Advertisement]]
* A Carl Jr's ad depicting Miss Turkey... Wearing a Bikini... depicting their burgers... on close up. Squick indeed. Possibly not so much Squick-y as just tacky, since the little burgers make what she's wearing look like GoofyPrintUnderwear.
* The Mature Dating site ads. While it's clear that there is a target audience, for most people seeing an old woman around their mother's age in sexy poses is pure {{Squick}}.
* A Virgin Airlines ad featured SassyBlackWoman ordering a Mexican wrap. Said wrap appeared as a [[LatinLover attractive naked Latin man]] in a tortilla. Yeah, [[{{Squick}} showing a woman wanting to get down with anthropomorphized burrito]] is supposed to make us ''want'' to [[IncrediblyLamePun ride]] their airlines.
* The gay dating...ok, [[AllGaysArePromiscuous hook-up]] site [=Adam4Adam=] heavily features porn ads to keep it free. Most of the ads are pleasing to the eye (even when the scenarios are silly, at least the models are hot), except for those that promote a pornographic cartoon site. It's fair to assume that most people can happily live their lives without ever seeing [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns get it on with Smithers]], among other famous cartoon characters having graphic sex. This is a very common trope on adult sites, both gay and straight, with cartoon porn ads (or extremely extreme real porn ads) being often fetish retardants.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The ''Manga/{{Zetsuai 1989}}'' [=OAVs=] have an... ''odd'' art style, especially for the supposed {{bishonen}} YaoiGuys who end up having spider-leg fingers and chins so pointy they could be used as weapons. Just take a look at the picture shown in [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/review/zetsuai-and-bronze this review]] and decide if you'd find ''that'' sexy. ("When you're screaming at the screen for the bishounen to put his shirt back ON, you know there's something wrong.")
* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar FINAL'' ramped up the FanService, but it felt extremely out of place and weird, even becoming {{squick}} in the case of Pilnus. Admittedly, with Pilnus this ''may'' [[BeautyEqualsGoodness have been intentional]]. Maybe.
* ''Anime/QueensBlade'' has this particular problem. It tries to cram in as much FanService as possible, while also trying to take itself seriously (The exception being the first episode). As a result, the fanservice distracts from the drama and vise-verse.
* Oddly, most of the FanService involving [[InformedAttractiveness women]] in ''Franchise/OnePiece''. The context of the scenes and the [[NoodlePeople odd proportions]] might be contributing factors for some people. Someone at Toei Animation seems to like it, as their bizarre proportions are exaggerated and given [[MaleGaze more screen time]] in the anime, particularly from the Fishman Island arc and onwards.
* The {{Gainaxing}} in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' goes from merely annoying to downright tasteless at certain points. It's like Rosa and Ange are the only women in the series who have ever heard of a bra. In context, due to their ignorant or immortal (really old) natures... they just might be.
* Yaoi example: ''Manga/{{Kizuna}}''. Enjouji, PLEASE take off your socks before having sex with Ranmaru, okay?
* Creator/MayuShinjo's rather...special art style in ''Manga/SensualPhrase'', ''Manga/HaouAiren'', ''Manga/LoveCeleb'' and ''Manga/AkumaNaEros''. Not only do the sex scenes look waaaaay too [[SexualHarassmentAndRapeTropes rape-like for comfort (whether they are or not)]], but the OnlySixFaces syndrome hits ''hard''. And those ''chins'', man - you could use the lead males' chins as ''knives''... And we're not even mentioning the guys's huge ''hands'' that sometimes are bigger than the girls's whole ''heads''.
* ''Manga/PokemonReBURST'' sometimes has female characters in fanservice-y poses. A pity that the girls are usual rendered in the BoobsAndButtPose that requires the spines to be non-existent. Either that, or the girl's anatomy is just plain bizarre with misshapen body parts.
* ''Manga/ZettaiShoujoSeiikiAmnesian'' has so much FanService that it becomes really hard to even ''follow'' it..
* The average breast size for the girls in ''Eiken'' is about as large as basketballs. While there's certainly a fetish for that, it's not hard to see why this would be off putting for other people. A lot of it has to do with the unnatural {{Gainaxing}} that reaches UncannyValley levels, and the fact that many find the idea of a little girl with GagBoobs (''the largest in the show'') as a fanservice character [[{{Squick}} unsettling and distasteful]].
* Some feel that the {{Gainaxing}} and ClothingDamage of ''Manga/HighSchoolOfTheDead'' is distracting them from the actually kind of decent plot.
* Similarly, ''Manga/IkkiTousen'' is seen as a fun updated version of RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms... but with too much {{gainaxing}} and {{panty shot}}s to be taken seriously.
* A common criticism of ''Manga/PuellaMagiKazumiMagica''. Though they're both pretty dark, its [[PuellaMagiMadokaMagica progenitor series]] kept the fanservice to a relative minimum ([[BarbieDollAnatomy naked space hugs]] aside), which makes the often {{Stripperific}} outfits, CensorSteam-laden {{Transformation Sequence}}s, and the protagonist's [[InnocentFanserviceGirl unusual tendency]] to wind up [[NakedOnArrival nude]] all the more jarring.
* ''Ro-Kyu-Bu'' has a lot of {{lolicon}} fanservice, which many viewers find distasteful and distracting from the cute plot and characters.
* ''Manga/JunjouRomantica'' turned "Yaoi Hands" into a [[MemeticMutation minor meme]]. Though the character's hands aren't quite as big as some of the derivatives, they're big enough to be disconcerting.
* Most major characters from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' wear incredibly skimpy uniforms that reveal almost everything. This has resulted in some viewers finding it hard to enjoy the show.
* In hentai stories where the... plot is nothing but rape scenes with DownerEnding, viewers who are not prepared for that specific kind of material will feel this. Even in comments section of free reading/watching hentai manga/anime sites, discussions about this tend to go from people who are astonished from this content and want to know who would draw such stories or even feel any pleasure from watching them, so they warn not to read them, on one side against people who mock of them arguing that if you see a "forced" (a polite way of "rape") tag in it, then just don't check it.
* This is a major criticism of ''Manga/CageOfEden'': Panty shots and ClothingDamage? Hot. On girls who are dead/dying/in serious danger? ''Creepy''. This combined with the occasionally misogynistic atmosphere can make the manga a kind of uncomfortable read.
* This is considered to be one of the reasons why ''I Don't Like You At All, Big Brother!'' flopped, as the art style was too cartoonish and [[NoodlePeople unappealing]] for a fanservice anime.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* An important health warning to anyone: women drawn by RobLiefeld will make your genitals retreat into your pelvis and start building protective turrets. Unless, of course, you have a thing for women who use the pouches on their stomachs to digest food.
* Comic artist Greg Horn whose [[http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/04/13/greg-horn-art/ reputation is just as maligned as Rob Liefeld's]]-- though his anatomy is better, in part because much of it is traced off of live-action porn. Most of his depictions of women either try too hard to be sexy or are just borderline offensive, like his infamous drawing featured Catwoman on all [[http://static03.mediaite.com/themarysue/uploads/2011/04/batman-and-catwoman.v4-349x550.jpg fours licking milk from a bowl]], with her torso grotesquely stretched and bent so that her breasts are pushed out while her ass in the air. You know your reputation is bad when [[http://static03.mediaite.com/themarysue/uploads/2011/04/catwoman.jpeg other artists in your field start making shots at your work.]]
* Guillem March's work on books like ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens'' and ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}'' can sometimes fall into this, since while he generally has a decent grasp of anatomy he sometimes really pushes it with the {{Fanservice}}. In particular, the end of the relaunch of ''Catwoman'' has [[spoiler:Batman and Selina going at it on a rooftop while still mostly in costume]] but the circumstances, including the fact that [[spoiler:they no longer know each other's identities thanks to a RetCon]], and Bruce's QuestionableConsent made most fans of the pairing respond not with "Yes!" but rather "Do Not Want!"
** While March does indeed have a decent grasp of anatomy, it's not something that shows in a number of his works. Case in point, the cover of Catwoman #0, where Catwoman is posed in a anatomically impossible manner so we can see her breasts and butt (with one butt-cheek strangely larger than the other) at the same time. It's inspired numerous parody illustrations including ones from [[http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/06/12/artists-respond-dc-comics-back-breaking-catwoman-0-cover/ Kate Beaton, and Cameron Stewart]]. Faith erin hicks described it as [[http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2012/06/quote-of-the-day-as-a-person-with-eyes-i-am-a-little-offended/ being offensive to people with eyes]]. Thankfully March listened to the criticism and redrew the cover with [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/recent/dioszine/BeforeAfterCatwoman0.jpg Catwmoman looking far more anatomically correct]].
** The abandoned ending for ''Catwoman'' #3, wherein Selina strips naked on the lawn of Wayne Manor as Bruce and Alfred watch from a security camera, is a rather disturbing and skeevy idea on its own, but [[http://www.theouthousers.com/images/jck/Catwoman_03_page_19_col.jpg March's art for the proposed sequence]] [[http://www.theouthousers.com/images/jck/Catwoman_03_page_20_col.jpg is particularly gross]]. Selina's smile in the top panel is even creepy enough to count as NightmareFuel.
* ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'': Spines don't [[http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/6/4/6/113646_v1.jpg bend that way]]! To others, Starfire's extreme emotional detachment towards her sexual partners, with the implication that this is meant to be portrayed for titillation rather than drama, is [[{{Squick}} more than a little disturbing]]. Likewise, Starfire's MonochromaticEyes, combined with her expressions and apparent disinterest make her look [[UncannyValley more than a little dead]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* The infamous ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'' Harry Potter fanfic, when the genitals are referred to as "thingy" and "you-know-what".
* The notoriously awful LordOfTheRings fanfic ''Celebrian'' is ''loaded'' with this. Even if you're someone who would actually be [[RuleThirtyFour turned on]] by the story's {{Squick}}y sexual content, lines like "Oh, thank you, great-king-with-balls-of-fire, king-whose-great-rod-my-mouth-yearns-for." and "Very well, cock-sucker, suck-cock." are likely to cause a [[{{Narm}} completely different reaction]].
* One ''{{Hellsing}}'' fanfic (title unknown) was pretty good up until the point where Integra started wondering about Alucard's "one-eyed trouser snake". {{Narm}} in itself, ''and'' completely [[OutOfCharacterMoment out of character]] for Integra. The funny part is that it's a real-life euphemism, but becomes rather freakish when you take into account his powers. And his one-eyed trouser snake is probably a literal one-eyed trouser snake, considering Alucard's eye for {{Squick}}y humor.
* Several [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries K/S]] {{Slash}} {{Lemon}}s mention that Spock's dick is [[AlienBlood green]]. Not limited to fanfics. Leonard Nimoy was asked if they were green. And yes, "they". Apparently, Vulcans have [[BizarreAlienBiology forked dicks.]] And not just ''forked.'' Vulcan green ''tentacle'' cock has shown up on more than one occasion.
* [[InvaderZim Zim/Dib]] often has [[ExoticEquipment the same issues]] as Kirk/Spock. And again, the phrase "trouser snake" is ''not'' meant to be literal (so please, please don't describe Irken genitalia as being long, green and writhing).
* In ''Fanfic/LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami''. "He was as a big as a bus and was wearing leather pants which dint hide his super big man thingy which was the size of a bus and twice as wide."
* Every single Sex scene in ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife''. Only surpassed by the "Bonadage-ritual" scene, which is... {{Squick}} to the utmost.
* ''FanFic/ForbidenFruitTheTempationOfEdwardCullen'': Most of the fic. Special mention goes to Edward's "throbbing lavender man-fruit [[BuffySpeak thing]]" and the scene where Jasper Cullen has sex with [[BestialityIsDepraved an apparently non-anthropomorphic panda]].
* Every adult-rated fanfic encountered by the ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum.
* ''Chocobo Nights'': even assuming that there are people out there who enjoy the thought of Tifa being impregnated by a chocobo, the [[RougeAnglesOfSatin terrible spelling]] renders it impossible to find this fic anything but either horrifying or funny.
-->''"It's so furry!''"
* ''Rectified Anonymity'', otherwise known as "The Pokémon Story", starts off with a horrifying example of [[spoiler:Pokémon]] rape, and just somehow ''[[FromBadToWorse keeps getting worse]]''. You'll need a lot of BrainBleach by the time you've finished.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''{{Showgirls}}'' is the film TropeCodifier. For a film that was sold on how sexy it was, it fails on all counts.
** No one in the movie can act. [[NakedPeopleAreFunny Bad acting is much funnier when everyone is naked.]] Elizabeth Berkley in particular, plays a psychotic stripper with a hair-trigger temper, and is aggressively non-acting the entire film. Her nude scenes, of which there are many, become ridiculous or uncomfortable because of how unbalanced (and badly acted) her character is.
** Everyone is naked. The ever present nudity becomes almost surreal. Naked bad acting moves into the realm of the absurd. The dance numbers in particular provide some weird, ''weird'' moments like naked cavemen dancing, or BDSM biker rallies.
** Things that should be erotic are hilarious because everyone in the movie is acting in the most {{Narm}}ful way possible. Elizabeth Berkley having sex with Kyle [=MacLachlan=] gives us moments like her attempting to perform super-awkward oral sex in a pool, and then having an orgasm that looks more like an epileptic seizure.
* Expect anything sexy in a movie being riffed on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' to turn out this way. After all, if they weren't bad movies, they wouldn't be on the show.
** In ''SpaceMutiny'', a female character's prolonged suggestive dancing only nauseates Mike and the Bots ("She's presenting like a mandrill!"). Mostly because the woman looked to be possibly the oldest person in the cast... and the movie kept treating her like a sexy teenager.
** In ''TheScreamingSkull,'' the complete lack of appeal in the movie's love scene prompts the line, "Flat, drab passion meanders aimlessly across the screen!"
** A movie called ''RacketGirls'' had the butt ugliest women ever in it. As Crow said "My loins will never stir again"
** ''Film/{{Mitchell}}''. Baby oil.
** In ''Film/{{Hobgoblins}}'' Kyle obviously has some... unusual tastes in women. Considering the woman that appears in his Hobgoblin-induced fantasy looks old enough to be his mother, and her completely unsubtle come-ons are especially overdone.
* In the Australian romantic movie ''The Heartbreak Kid'' (not to be confused with the Ben Stiller film), when the much-anticipated sex scene comes along the music they choose to play is ''Lacrimosa'' from Mozart's Requiem Mass. Funeral music? Not so sexy... unless you're an Uber{{Goth}}, that is.
* Many people believe the Neo/Trinity sex scene in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' was not sexy ''at all'', but instead [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment horrendously out-of-place]] and a little bit gross, despite being juxtaposed with a borderline orgy scene. The fact that it's actually pretty hard to tell which of them is which may be a factor. The whole cave orgy scene can be Fetish Retardant, too.
* ''Film/StreetFighterTheLegendOfChunLi'' is not a good movie. The completely un-sexy "sexy" club dance between Chun-Li and [[DragonLady Cantana]] didn't help, given the utter lack of any sort of heat between the two women, and the corresponding FridgeLogic that went with it (Just how the hell does Bison's right hand woman not know who Chun-Li is?).
* At the end of the first ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movie, we briefly see Sam and Mikaela making out on top of Sam's car. The problem is that Sam's car is the Autobot Bumblebee, who as we know is ''sentient.''
* ''Zerophilia'' is about a person dealing with a very rare condition that allows you to change sexes during arousal or orgasm. Sounds cool, until you bring in the FridgeLogic involved with the mechanics of the condition. It's explicitly shown that orgasm is the key to full change. So how does it work when a woman with the condition has an orgasm while having a man inside her?
* ''Film/DiscoPigs'' managed to do this with Creator/CillianMurphy, even when some thought that was impossible. We're just accepting Murphy [[DawsonCasting (then 24)]] as a teenage boy, then he's shirtless. Ooh, drool. And heartbreakingly smitten with his female best friend. But then he goes into a ridiculously long monologue about his best friend, describing how he wants to be with her in rather graphic sexual terms, and she looks so cute and innocent and young and actually 16 in her nightie and he suddenly looks really old...Of course, some girls loved it. However, many people had the same reaction as above - there is even [[http://Starcrozz.deviantart.com/art/Disco-Pigs-27164928 artwork to prove it.]]
* Burt Reynolds and Shirley Maclaine making out in the back seat in ''CannonballRun II''.
* In ''Film/ThePiano'', people were treated to more of Harvey Keitel than they ever wanted to see
* ''Film/TheJacket'': Please, {{Keira|Knightley}}, put your shirt back on and eat a donut.
* Tommy Wiseau's ''Film/TheRoom'' gave us numerous incredibly awkward sex scenes. The less said about Wiseau bottom the better.
* In ''Film/DieAnotherDay'''s opening theme, at one point {{Madonna}} moans in a seductive, sexy tone... ''"UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud"''. Anything else in that tone of voice could've been FetishFuel, but invoking Sigmund Freud, [[CaptainObvious not so much]].
* ''Film/{{Sextette}}'': Creator/MaeWest is still being presented as a memetic sex goddess, a good ''forty'' years (at least) after her Hollywood prime, complete with obviously false teeth.
* ''Film/AClockworkOrange'': Alex's threeway with a couple of girls might be hot. Sped up and set to the William Tell Overture? Not so much.
* All of the victims in ''Exterminator City'' are nubile young woman, most of them portrayed by adult film stars. Unfortunately, many of them have either misshapen or just grotesquely oversized breasts, undoubtedly due to cheap and[=/=]or botched cosmetic surgery.
--> [[http://www.somethingawful.com/movie-reviews/exterminator-city/1/ Ben Platt]]: This movie made me actually mad at both big breasts and nudity.
* Viper from ''Film/TheWolverine'' attempts to be a MsFanservice, but fails. This was due to a bad wardrobe choice, among other things.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/AnitaBlake'' brings us IkeaErotica, sex with half-turned were-creatures, sex with [[{{Shotacon}} underaged boys]], sex with mentally and emotionally damaged [[ChippendalesDancers strippers]], group sex with no sanitation at all, and some of the most terrifyingly [[YumYum foodlike]] descriptions of oral sex ever. All in all, some might like it, but [[{{Squick}} Yuck.]]
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. If the PurpleProse and ridiculous, [[MillsAndBoonProse Harlequin romance-style descriptions]] of Edward don't make you laugh, the revelation that ''he [[BishieSparkle sparkles]] in the sunlight'' certainly will. And then when it comes to the actual sex, if you aren't turned off by the incredibly violent injuries Bella sustains, it turns out that Edward is a pillow biter. Not to mention the fact that he's always described as being ice cold to the touch, even in the love scenes. Sounds about as pleasant as using a popsicle. Or getting a pelvic exam with a cold speculum.
* ''Literature/{{Vurt}}'' by Jeff Noon manages to avoid IKEAErotica, but falls into a trap with the same effect, in its longest sex scene. An extended, rather literal metaphor is made, with the girl's vagina as a garden that ultimately gets "filled with sap."
* ''[[http://dearauthor.com/wordpress/2009/03/05/review-knight-moves-by-jamaica-layne/ Knight Moves]]'' in its entirety. We have, among other things:
** The male lead meeting the female lead in the restroom, whilst he's taking a piss.
** A sex scene involving spinning; fun if you like [[GroinAttack penis injuries]] and being kicked in the head, not so much otherwise, and a definite aversion of EverythingsBetterWithSpinning.
** The WrittenSoundEffect "queeb" in reference to withdrawal, making this perhaps the only book to describe sex in terms of 8-bit video game sound effects.
** {{Unusual Euphemism}}s such as "lady softness", "volcanic crotch", "ladyfingers" (!!) and "codpiece" (to describe the penis itself, not what it's kept in).
** IKEAErotica
* ''Literature/TheWhiteAbacus'' by Damien Broderick falls into this category from apparent AuthorAppeal. It would seem Broderick thinks a woman with a rose growing out of her shoulder is FetishFuel rather than BodyHorror.
* Absolutely anything and everything nominated for the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Bad Sex in Fiction]] award.
-->"Now she made a noise like a tortured [[TheMoomins Moomintroll]]."
* In the first ''Literature/KittyNorville'' book, the image of a bunch of naked werewolves huddling together for warmth and closeness in a cave could be interpreted as RuleOfSexy, or possibly a kind of UglyCute. But see the book's entry in FridgeHorror and then take another look. Earlier, the sex scene between Kitty and Carl is kinda hot, if you can dig the dom/sub aspect, but then Carl ends it by saying "I'll take care of you, and [[AbusiveParents you don't ever have to grow up.]]"
* ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' is this for the people who don't find it sexy; there is ''[[LoveItOrHateIt no]]'' middle ground whatsoever. Usually, the retardant comes in whenever Anastasia Steele mentions her "Inner Goddess", the bizarre euphemisms she uses to describe her vagina, Christian Grey's penis, or condoms, and ''then'' there are the actual sex scenes themselves. It's also this to BDSM fans as it's ''very'' clear that the author isn't familiar with the subculture and doesn't seem to understand SafeSaneAndConsensual, which make some scenes go from "sexy" to "actually kind of horrifying".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* [[spoiler:Ianto and Jack]]'s implicit- something (naked hide and seek, anyone?) in season 2 of ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''. [[spoiler:Gareth David-Lloyd is cute. John Barrowman isn't exactly bad looking either.]] But put them together, subtract the clothes and add some implicit wild lust and you get the most hilarious pseudo-sex scene in ''Torchwood'' history. It's possible that some hardcore fans of the pairing were titillated, but more from the idea than the presentation. Maybe this was intentional- after all, [[spoiler:Gwen]] is laughing...
* In ''Literature/TippingTheVelvet'' the heroine ends up the plaything of a dominatrix/sexual adventuress, with a first encounter involving a strap-on dildo. Some readers found the equivalent scene in the book very erotic. In the TV version ridiculous, impossible to describe music is playing throughout. It's more like the soundtrack to a sporting event. Any sexiness is shattered.
* ''Series/TrueBlood''
** The show has a great many sex scenes, and a great many scenes involving blood. These scenes tend to coincide. Often. Then there's the corkscrew sex in season three.
** And then there's the neck-snapping sex in season two, and (in season one) Sookie and Bill have sex immediately after he digs himself out of the mud while he's been sleeping in all night.
* in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', ''that'' scene with Cameron in the last episode. Authoritative commands, removal of clothing, flick knife, wait what was that last one? Ooookay.
* In the pilot episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' the extremely attractive Vaitiare Bandera has a fun frontal nude scene. Great... up until a Goa'uld symbiont burrows its way into her skull through the back of her neck.
* Used in-universe in the ''Series/{{Community}}'' ChristmasEpisode "Regional Holiday Music"; at one point, Annie attempts to seduce Jeff into joining the Glee club by wearing a sexy Santa outfit and singing a provocative song. Since Annie is a rather attractive young woman, all would seemingly be good -- except that Annie, normally a quite intelligent person, intentionally dumbs herself down until she eventually ends up crawling around squeakily singing babyish gibberish. Jeff is visibly just as discomforted and squicked-out, if not more, as he is turned on by the whole thing. He's probably not the only one.
-->'''Jeff:''' Look, eventually you hit a point of diminishing returns on the sexiness.\\
'''Annie:''' What's a diminunbumbluh?
* One of the criticisms of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' was that the attempts at fanservice were so obvious they moved away from sexy and into tacky and off-putting. The decontamination chambers where they were stripped to underwear and covered with gel were the most obvious, and the final nail was the especially titillating "A Night in Sickbay:" there was a slight bump in ratings, but after that they dropped and never recovered.
* In-universe example in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' with Robin, who's shown to have a few sexual kinks that are turnoffs for her partners. Her invitation for a famous hockey player to give her [[NoodleIncident an obscure sex act called the Old King Clancy]] had him instantly lose interest in her, and one of her boyfriends broke up with her for [[NoodleIncident a bedroom thing]] that made him uncomfortable. Ted and Barney quickly recognize it and admit it's a valid reason to break up with her, [[EvenEvilHasStandards despite Barney being a few symptoms short of]] [[LovableSexManiac a sex addiction]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The video for Alanis Morissette's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2a-P-akltA Thank U]]'' provides a similar example: Morissette's hair neatly draped to hide her breasts is one thing but the way her genital area is blurred out actually has a fair bit of horror potential. If the blur effect had just been made a tiny bit more conspicuous, the entire un-sexy effect could've been avoided altogether.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has the utterly notorious unofficial third party sourcebook, ''The Book Of Erotic Fantasy''. Cringing turns to laughter as soon as you look at the pictures, half of which are photos of the same few people (presumably cut-rate models), the other half of which look like terrible Photoshop efforts. It didn't help it [[PanderingToTheBase is lesbian-heavy]] in a way that borders on creepy, and that the only male/male flavor text involves an [[UnfortunateImplications child-sized halfing]]
* Due to constant aversion of ConservationOfDetail, ''TabletopGame/{{FATAL}}'' has plenty of this.
* ''TabletopGame/BlissStage'' [[IntendedAudienceReaction intentionally thrives on this]]. The rulebook actually suggests naming your support characters after past crushes, to help method act how awkward (and potentially fucked-up) teenagers in those sorts of relationships would be under the circumstances.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In the early Xbox RPG ''VideoGame/{{Sudeki}}'', the character Ailish is made of the "Sexual Narm" version of this trope. There's just something really UncannyValley about everything she does that's intended to seem sexual (which is ''everything'', in case you were wondering).
* ''Miss World '96 Nude'' was probably supposed to be arousing, but it didn't work. As Seanbaby put it in his NON-WORK SAFE review: "Growling demon heads grow smaller demon heads out of their faces, and unleash an onslaught of terror that will cease any self-gratification you might have been starting on. The maggot-dripping vision of terror does eventually turn back into a topless girl, but by then the point is moot. It doesn't matter if a lump of dead bodies burning in a fiery pit of hell turns into the most beautiful girl you've ever seen-- you're still done thinking about sex for awhile."
** The gameplay is based on ''VideoGame/{{Qix}}''. It's supposed to be an incentive to play well and finish the level quickly; in the original game, your score started going down if you took too long. Unfortunately, as the reviewer above pointed out, it defeats the purpose of including sexy pictures in your game to begin with.
** Chances are it's less about being sexy though and more about [[SchmuckBait deceiving the player.]]
** The chicks in the game look rather off, too. Some of the models' breasts are Photoshopped to a comical degree, burgeoning on NauseaFuel once again.
* Invoked in ''VideoGame/{{Tsukihime}}'', where in Shiki's dream he rapes a 'doll' that is either Hisui or Kohaku. There is so little response, that even Shiki is dissatisfied. [[spoiler: It's actually not a dream, it's Shiki sharing perceptions with [[BigBad SHIKI]], who actually is having sex with Kohaku, and is setting up that she's, well, screwed up.]]
** Of course all the other sex scenes in the game are so horribly written, they could count as well.
** But of course! The scenes aren't written by Kinoko Nasu. [[{{Narm}} And they're hilarious in their badness.]]
** Speaking of the {{Nasuverse}}, Red Saber's [[ShowgirlSkirt transparent-skirted, panties-showing]] outfit in Fate/extra is turning out this way. Most of the fanbase doesn't find it hot; it's too out of place and hilarious.
* Marian, the DistressedDamsel in most of the ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' games, who is usually a good-looking woman ([[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/arcade/a/doubled.htm as seen in the original arcade game]] and [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/nes/a/dd2.htm the second NES game]]), was given an ugly redesign in the SegaGenesis [[PortingDisaster port]] by Accolade. The panty shots were still kept for the Genesis version, but they end up being more disturbing than sexy because of the way she looks ([[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/genesis/a/dd.htm see here]]).
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', the scene you get when you consummate one of the romance options fails on many levels. The music is bad, the visuals are bad, those involved are still wearing their underwear, and it goes on far too long. ''Franchise/MassEffect'' showed that less is definitely more.
** A picture of bored looking dwarf involved in such a scene is its own mini-meme.
** Not to mention that glitch that can cause the player-character to still be [[http://www.halolz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/halolz-dot-com-dragonageorigins-dwarfcondom.jpg fully clothed/armored during the scene]].
** Morrigan keeps her eyes open when she makes out with you. "So, that's what it looks like!"
** In her sex scenes, Morrigan is wearing a bra, while it's evident from her normal costume, that she usually doesn't burden herself with such things. This is more {{Narm}} than Fetish Retardant, but still, [[FridgeLogic did she take the time to put a bra on just for the sex]] scene?
* [[FemmeFatale Viktoria]] [[{{Pun}} revealing]] [[TheReveal her true identity]] in the first ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'' game.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims 2'' has the ability to "Woo-Hoo", or have sex. However, it's too cartoonish in noise and appearance to be arousing; it's even worse if you look under the sheets through hacking. The next game in the series cools down the comedy and adds actual moaning, but it's still not much. Making out, on the other hand...
* Curiously, the general reaction among fans to the [[HotSpringsEpisode hot springs scene]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' tends to be annoyance, rather than titillation. Go figure.
* During the Atari 2600 era, a company called Mystique thought it would be a good idea to make erotic videogames for the system. That's right: porn on a system that [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AdventureDragon_8968.png can't even make dragons]] [[VideoGame/{{Adventure}} not look like blocky, green ducks]], let alone represent a sex scene.
* At one point in ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'', there's an optional sex scene between Ethan and Madison because [[IndigoProphecy awkward, pointless sex is Quantic Dream's favorite thing]]. There's a technicolor rainbow of reasons it's more repulsive than erotic, but for starters: [[spoiler: he's been brutally injured, he's worried sick for his son who he knows has a limited amount of time left to live, he's suffering from a burgeoning case of SanitySlippage and readily admits he could be a serial killer, she's either only sleeping with him to get the story on him if he ''is'' the serial killer he thinks he is, or she's fallen in love with him after being around him for a grand total of four hours or so,]] and on top of all that, it's an awkwardly-framed quick-time event that [[MostWritersAreMale casts the player as Ethan]], so you get to undress Madison in the [[MaleGaze most uncomfortable way possible]].
* Likewise, ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'', also known as ''Indigo Prophecy'', features an 'interesting' sex scene. The pair are in a freezing boxcar yet strip to the skin, for one, and also one member is a recently revived cyborgized corpse who is explicitly stated to feel stone cold. It also comes completely out of nowhere, between a man and woman who have been pursuing/evading each other for the course of the game (and not in a MindGameShip sort of way,) and had no time at all to get to know each other.
* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld''
** The game has a mandatory cutscene where Dragon player characters receive oral sex between being doused in fatalist philosophy. Not only does the bizarre topic distract and the sex cause a flashback to a [[TheVirus Filth]] attack on Tokyo, the Dragon philosophy [[QuestionableConsent isn't exactly asking for consent]] at this point and the woman performing the deed may well be a Kumiho. Plus the game doesn't bother asking your sexual preferences: it will be a woman. Even if that's what you like, we also get a full-body shot of a half-demon bodyguard wearing nothing but tattoos and underwear beforehand to distract.
** Cassie (the Morninglight groupie) is a bit less severe, but the same lack of care for your orientation and obvious ulterior motives make her approach more than a little disconcerting.
* While ''VisualNovel/CrescendoEienDatoOmotteItaAnoKoro'' is already a PornWithPlot game, the rather faily body proportions (yup, Ayame and Yuka's boobs are ''almost bigger than their heads'') and the OnlySixFaces can be... distracting.
* InUniverse: In ''VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdAdventures'', the "Beat It and Eat It" level is a long tribute to Atari porn games, which the Nerd does not find arousing at all.
* InUniverse: In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', Steelport's citizens are less than pleased to see the Boss streaking.
* A major criticism of ''DiabolikLovers'' is that it's too disturbing or scary to be sexy. Some even feel that the game would've worked better as a straight-up horror story and not an otome game.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* FurryFandom
** It offers many opportunities for interesting couples, but it does not always work as intended. A rather infamous example comes from a kangaroo in the Rare Breed (porn) comic: "Ah yes! Squeeze my pouch-teats!".
** The "furspeak" that some writers/cartoonists insist on using can also turn a story meant to be sexy (or for that matter, [[Webcomic/JackDavidHopkins deep and meaningful]]) into hilarity in very short order. From anatomical terms like "tailhole" to overuse of gender neutral pronouns to the terms "{{Yiff}}" and "murr".
** Some of the comic writers don't quite get grammar quite yet. Kind of hard to concentrate on sex scenes when the characters are talking like they're brainless every other line.

-->'''Tycho:'''Where are the ''bipedal crustaceans'' in this calculation? The swirling, aroused gasses? The lonely, sentient space station whose hermetic bulkheads hold secret clusters of erotic delights, provided your character has both the skills and equipment? Carpe astrum, you Goddamned backwater clowns. There must be an universe of thrilling, dangerous, sometimes ''razor sharp'' genitalia that slavers beyond the Horsehead Nebula.
-->"Let me paint you a picture...imagine a Chik'har hive maiden scuttling out of her mottled carapace. Her inviting translucent heaving with ripe larvae! She retracts her guard plates, where forty alien breasts bristle with nipples! Yes...a thousand times yes!"
* ''ShreddedMoose'': [[SarcasmMode everyone's favorite]] {{Gorn}}-filled misogynist {{webcomic}} whose artist can't draw breasts is full of this.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' uses it in-universe, with the main characters experiencing it:
** Dan of all people finds the vampire-swooning stuff "a little odd". Susan reminds: the worst vamp-Fetish Retardant is the simple FridgeLogic. [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2009-10-29 Click the link]] to extinguish those sparkles FOREVER.
** Elliot was [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2010-12-13 beaten]] by a bag full of these until he's in guilt-trippy mood and "fails at perversion" completely:
---> '''Imaginary Random Bikini Model''': I'm someone's daughter, you '''''bastard'''''.
* That "HotterAndSexier" issue of ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}''. Yikes.
* ''Kit 'N Kay Boodle'': A FurryComic in which everybody {{Yiff}}s around all the time. It might just be tolerable, if not for the fact that the characters are drawn in a cutesy CareBears-esque cartoon style, clashing bizarrely with the rampant fucking.
* ''US Angel Corps''...well, uh...let's just say that "frequent, realistic, and graphically-depicted gore" and "an author who consistently and without question panders to the creepy misogynistic views of his target audience" do not a good combination make.

* Zane from ''WesternAnimation/{{Redakai}}'' is a pretty attractive guy ([[LittleGreenMen y'know, for]] [[RubberForeheadAliens an alien]]) but [[GutturalGrowler that voice of his]] makes him sound like a [[VideoGame/Left4Dead Smoker]]...
* Parodied in a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' skit, where [[TheSmurfs Gargamel]] [[Film/{{Avatar}} turns himself into a Smurf to infiltrate their society.]] He happens upon Smurfette bathing with her chest censored out. He breaks the fourth wall, saying that there's no point since she doesn't even have nipples. When the censor blur's gone, he still notes that it's not arousing at all.
* As attractive as ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'''s resident hot vampire Marceline is, her oddly bat-like nose (only visible when she smells something) can give her face a bit of an unsettling appearance.
** It's debated as to whether Finn's in-universe response to seeing Marceline naked in her bathroom in the episode "Marceline's Closet" was him having this kind of reaction or whether it was the mortified reaction to nudity period that might be normal for a teenage boy.
* Most characters in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' have bright yellow skin and odd facial structures, which tends to make "sexy" scenes kind of awkward. It's one of the main reasons RuleThirtyFour is so disliked in the fandom.
