->''"Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day! Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day!"''
-->-- '''Austin Powers''', ''Film/AustinPowersInternationalManOfMystery''

Sometimes, a man doesn't ''want'' to have [[RagingStiffie an erection]]. Either it's potentially physically hazardous, or there's a beautiful woman who he actually wants to spend time with and turning up with an obvious case of wood might not help (or both). It could be that he's just embarrassed to be seen in public that way. And sometimes, a man might be in the act, so to speak, and in need of some way to [[SpeedSex delay the inevitable]].

Either way, the solution is the same: to conjure up some image in the brain that draws attention away from the contents of the pants. Such an image is either hilariously mundane or hilariously horrific. In American media, the former option often takes the form "think about baseball!"[[note]][[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_metaphors_for_sex Ironically, there are a bunch of baseball metaphors for sex.]][[/note]]

Someone in a TransparentCloset might try thinking of someone of the same gender; because [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday of course thinking about the same gender would not result in a positive reaction for a heterosexual person like themselves.]] For some reason, this doesn't work.

The opposite of LieBackAndThinkOfEngland when used for sex. FetishRetardant and TheLoinsSleepTonight are inversions of this.

* In ''[[Film/TheAdventuresOfCaptainProton Captain Proton]] and the Planet of Lesbians'', Buster Kincaid is faced with [[TwinThreesomeFantasy twin]] scantily-dressed {{Hot Scientist}}s intent on using him as a GlorifiedSpermDonor for their LadyLand society.

Do not attempt to force the rod if it becomes stuck, but instead come, I mean ''coat'' the rod in ejaculate...''ejection'' lubricant in order to ease its passage into the tight hole...") and then:
-->"The President of Earth naked!" babbled Buster. "The cold depths of space, ahhh...the Giant Toothed Vagina of Freudian Nightmares! The Slime-Dripping Sludge Monster of Stenchia III!"


[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/AustinPowers'' combines this with a SurvivalMantra: "Baseball, cold showers. Baseball, cold showers." Then, after things escalate a bit: "[[UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher MARGARET THATCHER]] NAKED ON A COLD DAY! MARGARET THATCHER NAKED ON A COLD DAY!"
* In ''Film/CloselyWatchedTrains'', a Czech film that oscillates between sex comedy and LaResistance thriller, the protagonist is a young man who is suicidally depressed after he [[JizzedInMyPants prematurely ejaculated]] on the big night with his girlfriend. The doctor advises him to think about football to slow things down.
* In the Creator/SteveMartin movie ''Film/AllOfMe'', a woman is stuck in the body of the main character. He wants to sleep with another female character, but his "roommate" objects and starts filling his head with images of dead kittens and old nuns.
* The title character of ''Film/{{Blankman}}'' routinely goes into... convulsions... when kissed or otherwise aroused. "Think about math..."
* UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher again serves as anti-erection fodder in ''Film/BedroomsAndHallways'', where Leo, a gay man, is convinced to sit in a sauna with the fellow (straight) members of his support group.
* In the movie ''The Couch Trip'' John Burns, who is posing as a psychiatrist, recommends thinking of transmission repair for this purpose. Unfortunately, his description of taking apart a transmission, though he doesn't seem to realize or intend it, does not exactly qualify as unsexy. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SQNjg982JQ Observe.]]
* ''Film/NightMoves'': When main character Harry Moseby is asked why he doesn't respond to a teenager's clumsy attempts to be sexy, he jokingly responds that he thinks about things like "George Washington's teeth."

* In the novel ''Literature/{{Choke}}'', the protagonist thinks of corpses and other disgusting things to avoid early ejaculation.
* In Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/{{It}}'', Tom Rogan thinks of "White Sox batting averages or who was trying to undercut him for the Chesley account at work" for the same reason.
* In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', Moist von Lipwig finds himself in this mindset regarding Adora Belle Dearheart. "''He'd get another chance to be smiled at by Miss Dearheart -- think about {{Golem}}s! Golems, golems, golems!''"
* Creator/DaveBarry:
** In ''Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys'', Barry inclues advice for men on how to delay their orgasms, and suggests thinking of Margaret Thatcher, or, in extreme cases, [[FanDisservice Rush Limbaugh in a thong.]]
** In another, he mentions a technique devised by a friend of his, wherein the man and the woman are having sex, and the guy's dog comes to investigate, and cheerfully shoves its subzero nose in an area the guy would ''really'' not like to feel cold in.

'''Woman:''' Yesyesyesyesyesyesyes...\\

* Early in the ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Mage Winds]]'' trilogy, Darkwind rescues a woman who he finds sexually attractive, but who he thinks may be a HoneyTrap. (She is.)

* ''In Trading Bases: A Story About Wall Street, Gambling, and Baseball'', author Joe Peta recalls a college friend who pictured baseball star Roberto Clemente when he wanted to slow himself down.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Anwar from ''Series/{{Skins}}'' recites Creator/HughGrant's filmography in order to slow himself down.
* In the ''Series/That70sShow'' episode "Thanksgiving", Eric has to do this after making out with an attractive girl. His inner monologue goes: "Okay, baseball, Vietnam, UsefulNotes/RichardNixon, Pat Nixon, Pat Boone, the girl that gives the weather, no, no! Okay, jellyfish, really big spiders, come on, dig deep, dig deep, okay, the day we backed over Skipper in the driveway, instead of going to the county fair, I had to bury him in the backyard." Inverted later with Donna who thinks of sexy things.
* In ''Series/KyleXY'', Josh explained to Kyle that when he doesn't want to have an erection, he thinks of "disgusting things" (for him, zits and old people).

-->'''Josh:''' Zits. Old people. Zits. Old people. GRAPEFRUIT!
* A RunningGag on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' is Finn thinking of the time he ran over a mailman in order to prevent himself... arriving early. It's made a plot point on "Never Been Kissed" when Sam needs to find his "mailman" and decides to think of Coach Bieste in various unflattering positions. It's so effective that the method spreads-in fact, it's ''too'' effective, soon the boys ([[RunningGag and Tina]]) actually start saying Bieste's name during makeout sessions, causing their partners to become suspicious. [[spoiler:[[MoodWhiplash And then Bieste finds out]], [[TearJerker and things get very unfunny]]]]. That's right, ''Series/{{Glee}}'' actually [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed the trope]].

** In the "Dial B for Virgin" episode, Bud thinks out loud "Zima Guy, Zima Guy. No, no, I mean, I mean, Roseanne, Roseanne...".
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** In an episode, Joey mentions "baseball, or sandwiches, or... Chandler" as things he thinks of to keep himself from getting too "excited". Phoebe tries to follow his advice, but finds even baseball and sandwiches too sexy... thinking about Chandler, on the other hand, works fine.
** In another episode Ross gets rid of an erection by thinking about his grandmother.
* In the ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'' episode "Needs", several Actives wake up in their sleeping chambers with their original personalities before they were mind-wiped, [[YouWakeUpInARoom but no memory of how they got there]]. So they have to pretend to be the mind-wiped Actives while they work out how to escape; unfortunately this means going into the co-ed showers. Victor plays the baseball flavor of this trope straight and out loud, reciting the Mets roster by fielding position after catching a glimpse of incredibly hot Sierra all wet and naked.
* ''Series/WonderWoman'': After immortal Princess Diana of [[LadyLand Paradise Island]] invokes WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove when she sees a man for the first time, her mother hilariously invokes this:
-->'''Queen Hippolyte:''' There are some things that are better not known. Young Amazon minds are best occupied with athletic discipline, higher learning.

* Inverted on ''Series/TrueBlood''. When Sookie, a mind-reader, questions Sam on Tara's whereabouts after she'd been turned to a vampire, Sam forces himself to think ''sexy'' thoughts to distract himself. It doesn't work.
-->'''Sam:''' ''[thinking]'' Look at her boobs, look at her boobs, look at her boobs, don't think about the walk-in [cooler]--DAMMIT!\\
'''Sookie:''' She's in the walk-in!\\
'''Sookie:''' Sam, can I give you a hug without you thinking about my boobs?\\
'''Sam:''' [[ImAManICantHelpIt Probably not]].\\
'''Sookie:''' Oh, all right. ''[hugs him anyway]''
* Discussed in ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'':
-->'''Charlie:''' When you're making love, the way to slow yourself down is to think of something completely non-sexual.\\
'''Alan:''' What do you think of?\\
'''Charlie:''' You.
* An unusual variant in ''Series/TheSingingDetective'': the protagonist is having ointment rubbed into his body - ''all'' of his body - by an attractive nurse and is desperately trying not to become aroused. ([[TakeThat Most of the "unsexy" thoughts were about people the screenwriter hated.]])
* ''Series/LazyTown'' has Bill Thompson captured by the "Evil Dudette"(who is the brother of the "Evil Dude") shouting out "You're an ugly girl!" & what Austin Powers said about Margret Thatcher without clothes on a cold day.
* The ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Earshot" had Buffy acquiring uncontrollable telepathy after killing a demon who has the power. Xander freaks out when he learns about this, because of his [[HormoneAddledTeenager usual train of thought]], and tries desperately to deter it:
-->'''Xander:''' 4 times 5 is 30. 5 times 6 is 32. Naked women. Naked Buffy. Help!
* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'':
** Frasier and Kate Costas are trying to get over their mutual lust after their affair nearly loses them their jobs.

** Niles' advice to Frasier when he's trying to resist Lilith;
--->'''Niles:''' Do you remember when we were young and we found that dead horse, crawling with maggots? Hold on to that image, you can ride that horse to safety!\\
'''Frasier:''' You're right. When it comes to unpleasant images, [[{{Pun}} you can't beat a dead horse]].
** In an episode when Niles was desperate for sex, Daphne makes one of her typical InnocentInnuendo remarks that sends Niles' mind off to fantasy land. Frasier brings him back down to Earth with the phrase "Grandma in a teddy."
* This beauty from an episode of ''{{Parkinson}}''.
-->'''Creator/BillyConnolly:''' Men have many methods. Some people think of the FA Cup team of 1953. You mustn't think of sex or poof! it's all over. I do the nine times table. I got to 81 once.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'':
** Marshall tries to prolong sex with Lily to avoid a big fight they agreed that they wouldn't have until after they'd had sex. To slow things down, he starts thinking of unsexy things, such as roadkill, clipping toenails and bugs. But then he finds he's taken it too far and needs to rearouse himself, so he starts thinking of sexy things, such as bugs with boobs.
** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with Barney's brother James before he came out as gay: while having sex with his girlfriend, he'd think about baseball (and, more specifically, the men playing baseball) to make it go ''faster''.
* On ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', Leslie takes this to a different level in "Road Trip" when she is forced to go on a trip for work with Ben, who has a lot of {{UST}} with her, but can't date her because he is technically her superior. She compiles a list of un-sexy conversation topics, such as university bed-lofting rules and the history of the ladder. She even goes as far as making an unsexy CD mix, which included whale noises and Jimmy Carter's "Crisis of Confidence" speech.
* In the ''Series/TheFlash2014'' episode "The Nuclear Man", Barry Allen is advised to think about dead puppies and baseball in order to avoid being [[SpeedSex the Fastest]] [[ArcWords Man Alive]] during his date with Linda Park.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. In "Coup By Clam", D'Argo becomes mentally linked to [[DirtyOldWoman Noranti]], who starts [[ADateWithRosiePalms stimulating herself]], causing an identical reaction in D'Argo, who doesn't enjoy it as much as you'd think.
-->'''Aeryn:''' Come on D'Argo. Just fight it.
-->'''John:''' Dee, think about baseball. Math. Isosceles triangle. Rusty... razor blades. Gravel. ''[hint: it doesn't work]''

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Maccer from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' [[ADateWithRosiePalms is a chronic masturbator]]. To get him to stop, his manager tells him to "Think of Thatcher". Unfortunately, that just turns him on more.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Slick from ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' has to work really [[{{Pun}} hard]] at this when he gets a hug from Monique.
* ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'' has this, when a guy has to go without sex for a while. Being around computer nerds, unsexy thoughts aren't hard to come by.
* ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'':
** The comic has a number of takes on this.
--->"Oh, Steve! What gives you such amazing stamina?":\\
"[[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2108#comic The boundary conditions of the universe.]]"

* Alan of ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'', after being called by Ally to deal with the problem of her two subs, Lisa and Anne, being stuck in a harness with a vibrating egg between them without the key to the padlocks, tries without success to Think Unsexy Thoughts as he tries to work through the increasingly louder moaning, culminating in him having to [[IllBeInMyBunk head to the bathroom]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** While stuck in an elevator with Mindy Simmons, a sexy new coworker, Homer Simpson imagines his sisters-in-law, Patty and Selma, wearing towels and shaving their legs in the bathroom, as well as his best friend Barney in a polka dot bikini drunkenly humming the theme to ''[[Series/IDreamOfJeannie I Dream of Jeannie]]''. It doesn't work, as Barney morphs into Mindy. His mantra is the [[TropeNamer trope namer]]. Ironically, Mindy ''also'' had the same mantra as Homer.
** Ned Flanders is also tempted with dangerous ideas about a woman that he is not married with. He urges himself to think about the Holy Bible. He fails: the Bible gets some legs and began to play with the ribbon and "open" as a strip-tease dancer.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''[='=]s Quagmire was subjected to "aversion therapy" to try and discourage him from being such a pervert, which involved a ceiling fan perched right above his groin and a Victoria's Secret catalogue.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/JohnCallahansQuads'' had the main character think about his ugly nun teacher in order to help him ''maintain'' an erection... because the unsexy thoughts would help him with premature ejaculation.
* Zigzagged in ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}''. Murderface at first tries to think of sexy thoughts so he doesn't think about how a male doctor is examining his junk, then when he realizes he's getting hard, tries desperately to think of unsexy thoughts because jerking off in a doctor's face 'makes you gay'.
