While farmers generally allow one rooster for ten hens, ten men are scarcely sufficient to service one woman.The Distaff Counterpart of All Men Are Perverts: Women will do anything for sex, and men are the cerebral ones. This is a Cyclic Trope, having been popular historically, especially in ancient Greece. Back then, this trope actually replaced All Men Are Perverts: it was assumed that women were too sex-crazed to say no to sex, while men were supposed to hold back for the sake of propriety—being too sexual with women was an insult to a man's virility. In many cultures, it is invoked in stories with the moral to marry your daughters off young, to prevent their disgracing the family because they just can't control themselves. Although mostly a Forgotten Trope and/or Discredited Trope today, this trope which portrays the female conquest/male submission ritual, made a comeback first in seventies music in which a female vocalist sings about cruising for and propositioning guys for sex and then in the early eighties, in movies and on TV shows in which beautiful sexually adventurous women are the ones who pick up guys, take them to bed and initiate the sexual encounters. Sometimes, a Good Bad Girl doesn't care about the social stigma with putting out, and promiscuity is portrayed positively and a rite of passage or personal growth. That is not this trope. This trope would shrug its shoulders and say: "Well, she's a woman, what do you expect? '' And if the guy isn't willing? Well, that's just too bad. No Guy Wants to Be Chased, but what are you going to do? My Girl Is a Slut, and my fish are wet. In order for this trope to apply to a modern work, women have to be depicted as man-chasers by default. Not just one in particular; that's simply Really Gets Around (for "generic" promiscuity) or a Man-Eater (when the woman picks up and then discards lovers like tissue paper). Women in general would say "I am a woman, I can't help it!" It has to be socially expected from women that they'll do anything for the next ride on the trouser rocket. Not because it's in a world where men and women happily engage in the hanky-panky and the nasty together. A world where women are the ones thinking with their crotches, and men are the ones thinking with their brains. Contrast All Women Are Prudes and compare All Men Are Perverts. And Everybody Has Lots of Sex is when both genders more or less equally go for casual sex. In classic works that personify the Seven Deadly Sins (including Marlowe's Doctor Faustus), Lust is usually the one cast as a woman.

- Many female friendly ads suggest that the women in them are about to engage in group sex. These ads include Love Express,◊ Calvin Klein,◊ Abercrombie &◊Fitch◊ and Gilly Hicks. (mildly NSFW)
- This State Farm insurance add. Every other one (of either all-male or mixed company) involves them wishing for things like sandwiches, Bob Barker, escaping from angry buffalo.
- When the female reporter goes into the locker room to interview the football players in this Diet Rite commercial, which is geared towards women, her eyes immediately fixate on the shirtless player and the naked player who has a towel wrapped around his neck and she's ignoring the ones who are completely dressed. When she enters the locker room, the line to the jingle "You're where you want to be" plays.
- This parody infomercial on [adult swim]. It portrays this trope pretty well.
- Both of these Charlie Perfume commercials from the seventies and eighties were aimed squarely at aggressive, sexually liberated women.
Anime & Manga
- Depicted in the picture above, Panty of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt is a man chasing nut, who is not afraid to bed each and every man she comes across (she actually sees it as a personal challenge), and when her sister asks her why she would bed a man who was constantly showing off his muscles and talking about how big his package was AND that he had slept with his mom, her response was "Well, yeah, why would I not (sleep with him)?"
- The female cast of Star Driver are very lustful, with bedhopping and Yaoi Fangirl fantasies aplenty. In fact, they tend to come across as a lot more so than the guys in the series. Interestingly, though, this isn't presented in a condemnatory manner, thanks to the show's cheerily laid-back attitude towards all matters sexual.
- Played for Laughs in Haiyore! Nyarko-san. The heroine Nyarko's actions are mostly driven by her over-the-top love/lust for Mahiro and her desire to make babies with him. Even though this is probably impossible, because she's a Lovecraftian abomination and he's a regular human. Cuuko, meanwhile, is constantly trying to mate with Nyarko, who fights back even more aggressively than Mahiro. And Cuuko's older cousin wants to marry her… you get the idea.
- Negima! comes very close to this trope… if it weren't for the fact that the object of all the girls' affection is a ten-year-old boy. Having said that, said affection never seems entirely chaste…
- Sailor Moon: The entire team is insanely boy-crazy. Usagi gets three love interests established within the first two episodes (two of them turn out to be the same person but still), Makoto frequently talks about how each new guy she meets reminds her of her old sempai (including a dog) while Rei and Minako are obsessed with teen idols and male models. Even bookworm Ami gets a love interest and has many Covert Pervert moments relating to boys. This even extends to the villains—Queen Beryl is desperate to make Mamoru her lover and Mimete chooses her victims of the week based on whatever attractive male celebrity is in town.
- This trope is in play in the entire setup of Seitokai Yakuindomo. The actual story. To what extent? Think of it this way: remember that relay commentator in Season 1, Episode 9? Yeah, she's a minor character… who refers to Takatoshi as the "school's breeding horse."note And most of the crowd (95% women, mind you) cheers on his new title.
- To elaborate: Shino can't go five minutes without making a sex joke, Aria is into bondage (among other things), Nene is always building and/or using a vibrator, Yokoshima-sensei will do anything with a Y chromosome, etc. There are a grand total of 6 girls who don't think about sex during at least half of their screen time: Suzu, Mitsuba, Chiri, Kaede, Toki, and Furuya.
- Devil Hunter Yohko: Yohko's mother, Sayoko, became pregnant with her at age 15, due to how sexually active she was. Which hasn't changed in her adulthood, where she continues to date different men and engage in casual sex. In the first episode, she even tells Yohko that life's too short to waste on being a Devil Hunter, when she could be enjoying herself with cute guys and tosses Yohko a pack of condoms right before she leaves for school.
- Girls Bravo:
- Fukuyama's kid sister, Lisa, is horny and wants Yukinari to bang her. Near the end of episode 4, she stripped down to her panties and told him to fondle her, in an attempt to cure him of his 'girl phobia'. Except it wasn't altruistic, because she was hoping he'd be up to doing the deed afterward. And when they met the ghost at the hotsprings (episode 11), Lisa offered to let her possess her body, then encouraged Yukinari to be as pervy as he wanted with her (seen @3:46-4:15). Both attempts failed.
- Kosame's just as bad when it comes to Kirie. The series plays her attempts to get between Kirie's legs for equal parts comedy and fanservice. She nearly succeeds in episode 4, after coercing Kirie into the bedroom at gunpoint, but was foiled at the last moment by a wandering spirit Lisa had accidentally released. But in episode 13, she managed to grope Kirie during the semifinal bout of the "Girls Fight!" competition and stole her first kiss at the end.
- For unexplained reasons, the populace of Seiren is almost entirely female and sexually repressed. Though it doesn't show until and unless they happen to see a male. At which point, any pretense of feminine modesty goes out the window, as they'll pursue said male with reckless abandon. When Fukuyama volunteers to "hold them off" in episode 23, they strip themselves naked and are shown happily allowing him to molest them to both his and their heart's content!
- In Dragon Ball, women are nearly always the more sexually aggressive:
- Bulma is the first and foremost example, hunting down the Dragon Balls to wish for a boyfriend and throwing herself at every attractive man she encounters, from Yamcha through General Blue and to Vegeta.
- Bulma's parents are both depicted as swingers and both are equally lustful, with her mother telling her to bring any handsome boys she meets home with her when she comes to visit and appearing to hit on a very young Goku and chiding her daughter not to be a "prude" when she objects.
- Launch is The Ingenue when in her blue-haired deredere form, but her gun-toting blonde-haired Action Girl tsuntsun form makes it no secret that she has the hots for Tenshinhan.
- Chichi is the least overtly sexual, probably because she's a very young girl when introduced, but she is still incredibly boy-crazy and assumes that every male she meets is a suitor. (Most of them are very much not.)
- The trope is downplayed by the Z era. Bulma is still very boy-crazy in the first few arcs, but settles down somewhat after getting together with Vegeta (one instance of accidentally hitting on her son from the future aside). Chichi has become a housewife and Launch and Bulma's mother are Out of Focus. New characters Maron (filler-only), Android 18, and Videl are more or less on equal footing with their male counterparts and their relationships aren't explicitly sexualized (although Maron's character design certainly is).
- While the most perverted character in the series is a guy, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches often follows this trope. Noa and Odagiri have shown to be more sexually aggressive than any of the male characters, Shiraishi is much more casual about sex than Yamada (in theory, as they remain virgins until the Babies Ever After ending), Rika openly declares herself a pervert, Itou can turn any situation into something perverted with her wild imagination, and several of the other girls are either Covert Perverts or Shameless Fanservice Girls. While most of the guys certainly don't mind looking at naked skin or groping a pair of boobs, they don't tend to make a big deal out of it like the girls.
- Almost every major female character in Daily Life with Monster Girl is attracted to the male protagonist. Partially justified, as they're cute monster girls who are attracted to the main protagonist because he treats them all like ordinary girls and makes them feel good about themselves. Lamias in the series are noted as having this as their hat: Miia is considered to be a shy girl by her mother due to trying to seduce Kimihito into making the first move rather than just tearing his clothes off and forcing herself on him, which is apparently the norm for her species.
- Almost all of the female main characters of Akame ga Kill! can't resist throwing themselves at Tatsumi because of his kindness towards others. But, the two most lustful would be Leone and Esdeath. They're the most forward out of all the women. Unable to control themselves from inappropriately touching him, kissing him, making suggestive comments about him, and shoving his face in their chests.
- Gakuen Ouji revolves around this trope. The school is heavily female dominated and every single girl seems to be horny. In order to avoid getting mobbed the guys must either become a school idol, a playboy or promise complete chastity to a single girl. Everyone else is considered fair game.
- Maken-ki!: The in-series rumors about Love Espada aren't too far from the truth, due to her insatiable libido along with being openly bisexual. While making the announcements for the Himekagura Festival, she got so turned on by the looks she was getting from the crowd, that she would've stripped for them, if her friend Hoshii hadn't been there to stop her. But whenever Hoshii isn't around, Espada freely indulges her hormones. Such as chapter 79, where she leaves a group of female students half naked and disheveled at her feet - with two of them still trembling in orgasm.
- Uchi No Musume Ni Te O Dasu Na: Applies to the series' main duo: Athena and her daughter, Clara.
Athena: (cradling Risa) "Are you okay??"Risa: (with empty eyes) "Please... no more. If you thrust it inside me anymore... I'll go crazy. Forgive... Clara." (faints)
- They're ashamed to admit it, since they're both superheroines, but they have near insatiable libidos which they try to keep bottled up. The only ones who can satisfy either of them are BM (Athena's deceased husband) and Mei, for Clara.
- It's worse in Clara's case, since she's a virgin with raging hormones because of how long she's tried to keep it in check. But in "Amazing Eighth Wonder Vol.1", she gets possessed by a phallic parasite that causes its host to seek out strong, fertile women. Clara uses it as a strap-on and bangs Mei several times back-to-back, then goes to N.U.D.E's HQ. By the time Athena arrives, Clara has ravished the entire staff; leaving most passed out naked on the floor.
- The opening scene of Vol.2 shows Clara and Mei seated across from each other at a cafe, while both of them fantasize about Clara having a penis and ravishing Mei like she did in Vol.1. The narration explains that while neither has conscious memory of the event, the lingering sensations from it and their repressed feelings are what's causing them have such erotic thoughts about each other.
- In World's End Harem, the absence of a male populace in the five years the MK Virus had spread out apparently made women very willing, extremely so, to engage in mating sessions with the 5 remaining men on earth, in order to repopulate it; many women constantly blush in Reito’s presence, and those are the alleged civilized ones, the women dropped on the fallen cities completely lost themselves in despair, the very sight of Reito prompted one of those to run to his arms like an animal in heat.
- Amahara's World of Moral Reversal takes place in a world where all the women have a higher libido compared to the more reserved men, and are far more open about their boy-lusting. You'll constantly see girls talking about losing their virginity, ogling male magazines, or watching porn. In the H doujin series of comics before it became a serialized Ecchi, the main male character (a boy from "our" world who somehow ended up there) exploited this trope as hard as he could and presented himself as their equivalent to an easy lay. Meanwhile, the serialized version stars a girl from "our" world instead, as she tries to come to terms with the open sexuality of girls there.
- Catwoman. Her sexuality is her primary weapon and she uses it to her advantage. She's usually fawning over Batman, but she has had other lovers in her life as well. Before becoming a supervillain, she worked as a prostitute.
- Gina and Brittany from Gold Digger especially, but females in this series tend to gravitate towards the aggressive side when it comes to guys.
- All of Brook McEldowney's female characters.
- 9 Chickweed Lane featured a mature woman in her prime; the focus then shifted to her college-aged daughter Edda who engaged in hot, hot sex with her boyfriend Amos in front of a balloon full of Belgians with camera phones; now Edda's grandmother is recounting how she met her husband while nursing a crush on a Austrian POW to her daughter, granddaughter, and her granddaughter's ballet class (there's also a older female musician who tried to seduce Amos for the dramaz). Pibgorn has Pib herself, who is also in passionate love with her boyfriend Geoff, and Geoff's ex-girlfriend Drucilla, who's a succubus. Notably, all the male love interests are exceedingly nerdy.
- In 9 Chickweed Lane, exactly two of the male love interests are nerdy. Two. Edda's grandfather Bill was very much the Manly Man, as was Gram's other love interest, albeit in a different way, and Thorax… well, he's Thorax.
- Michonne from The Walking Dead has had three boyfriends in the zombie apocalypse. She's shown to constantly hit on any man who she's attracted to. Offering casual sex all the time.
- Anything done by Frank Miller. His female characters are all sexually hungry, with his male protagonists frequently having to reject moves by the Girl of the Week because it's a bad idea right now, what with the cops closing in on the place and all.
- All women in Ramba. Especially the title character.
- Also a theme in a lot of Robert Crumb 's comics.
- As in Milo Manara's work.
- A staple in the erotic comic book series Red Ears.
- All female characters in Cherry Comics.
- Much like All Men Are Perverts, this trope is very common in rule 34.
- Used heavily in A Pleasant Surprise. This kickstarts the plot.
- In Relax, another work by the same author, Klee, a prostitute is shown as taking quite a lot of pleasure in her work. This guy likes his lusty, assertive women.
- In the original time loop omakes published by Innortal, this was commonly implied to be a result of the ladies slowly going insane due to living the same life over and over again. While it was played for laughs, later contributers shied away from this trope.
- The Pokémon Lemon fanfic The Adventures of Ryan and Kirrie has the titular Kirrie embody this trope word-for-word. Later chapters just stretch the trope beyond the logical conclusion…
- In In The Light Of Day: A Frozen Epic, Anna's friend Hildegard (aka Hildy) apparently thinks of sex constantly.
- In the Love Hina fanfic Prince of PolPol, Keitaro is revealed to be the heir to the island throne of PolPol, and ends up married to ALL the Hinata girls. Almost immediately after the ceremony is completed, he is forced to flee from Kanako, Shinobu, Su, Kitsune, Mutsume and Sarah, all of whom want to get into his bed (although Sarah is only pursing him because she's offended by the thought that he doesn't want to have sex with her). Eventually, the first girl to have sex with him is Nyamo.
- No woman keeps her hands off of James Bond for very long. It helps that James Bond is practically The Pornomancer.
- The "Castle Anthrax" scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a comedic illustration of this trope.
- Ladies in 40 Days and 40 Nights, once the main character takes himself off the market. Played with, the women aren't lustful towards the main character because they can't control themselves, they do it to maintain the status quo, with women controlling access to sex, and men having to work for it. If the guys start withholding it, then the power shifts.
- The 1962 version of Mutiny on the Bounty portrays all Tahitian women this way.
- In Where The Boys Are 84, Lisa Hartman, Lorna Luft, Wendy Schaal and Lynn-Holly Johnson play four college coeds, who as Lynn-Holly Johnson's character, Laurie puts it, are going to Fort Lauderdale because there are millions of guys just looking for animal sex and debauchery.
- Virtually all the ladies in The Devils are hormone driven, and the subject of their lust is almost always Urbain Grandier. The "nun orgy" is a particularly notable example of this from the film.
- In The Private Life of Don Juan all the women in Seville want to have sex with Don Juan, it seems. When Don Juan goes to his own funeral he is astonished that all these women who never met him are showing up in mourning clothes.
- Played for Laughs in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. When Professor Slughorn shows the class a sample of a love potion, every girl in the class becomes drawn to it and its capabilities.
- Played for laughs in 1955 film Friendly Persuasion. Father and son Jess and Josh Birdwell, Quaker farmers, are out traveling the countryside to sell their produce. They stop at a farm that contains a lonely widow and three obviously horny daughters. The daughters nearly eat Josh alive, grabbing at him and staring at him with lust-crazed eyes, before the Birdwells make their escape.
Widow Hudspeth: Menfolks are so scarce around here that the girls get carried away at the sight of one.
- Gentlemen Prefer Blondes has a lot of women hanging around a team's workout room while Jane Russell wanders around the room singing the beefy number "Ain't Anyone Here For Love?".
- Lorraine McFly from Back to the Future revealed that she was immensely lustful in her youth. Every time she interacted with Marty (who she didn't know was her son) she would act very interested in, undressing him in his sleep, checking out his underwear, bringing him into her room, following him wherever he went, and watching him from afar. It's also subtly implied that she's brought other guys into her car before.
- This is an effect of the Other Halves app; it happens to men, too.
- Hold Your Man: Eddie impersonates another inmate's brother in order to get into the women's prison to see Ruby. When he kisses his "sister", she invites him to do it again, saying "It's been a long time."
- Sirens puts forth the argument that women are inherently lustful but have been beaten into being prudish thanks to strict religious enforcement. Estella and Giddy are initially repulsed by the sexuality of Sheila and Pru, but soon become intrigued by how free-spirited they are. The two of them embracing their sexuality and becoming more lustful is seen as an example of positive character growth - in Estella's case, greatly improving her marriage.
- A Chinese folk tale recounts how a household had a maid far past marriageable age, and one day a fox spirit possessed her. After that, she kept running off and being found sleeping in a haystack. When the master of the household went to punish her, however, the fox laughed at him and asked whose fault was it, really? She was years past being old enough to marry. Accepting the rebuke, he called in a matchmaker and married off all the maids who were old enough to marry.
- In the locker room, men talk about three things: money, football and women. They exaggerate about money, they don't know football nearly as well as they think they do, and they fabricate stories about women. Women talk about two things in the locker room—sex and men. And not in abstract terms either. They are extremely graphic and technical and they never lie.
- Popular for female villains in The Middle Ages:
- For instance, the temptresses Duessa, Phaedria, and Acrasia in The Faerie Queene. Oddly, Pride is the Deadly Sin that gets cast as female.
- The character referred to as the Wife of Bath in The Canterbury Tales illustrates the era's stereotype of female sexuality. (She's called the "Wife of Bath" because she lives in Bath, a city in England, and has been married five times.)
- A running theme in The Arabian Nights, when women are demanding sex from men in tale after tale after tale.
- K.W. Jeter's classic Steam Punk novel Infernal Devices, has two prominent female characters. Both seem to barely think of anything other than boning the hero, a veddy proper Victorian Gentleman who would never dream of engaging in illicit sex. In fact, he's horrified at the very notion of horny women, all while being completely unable to escape them. Thankfully one of them is able to get it on with a clockwork automaton of the hero.
- King Dork: Seemingly every teenage girl with a boyfriend is cheating on said boyfriend. Specifically, they all seem to love giving blow jobs to multiple guys.
- Tairen Soul. While the heroine's insatiable desire for Rain is portrayed relatively positively, nearly every minor female character is portrayed as negatively lustful. Queen Annoura's lust for "forbidden pleasures" and her tendency to keep attractive male "Dazzles" makes her easier for the mages to manipulate, and negatively affects her relationship with King Dorian. Jiarine Montevero is very lustful, and continually uses her sexuality to bad ends or to help the mages. The Feraz are a race of Femme Fatales and Vamps. And then there's Kelissande Minset…
- Piers Anthony once wrote a short story "Ship of Mustard" (which appears in the collection Alien Plot) in which, as he describes in the introduction to the story, he tried to Gender Flip All Men Are Perverts and All Women Are Prudes. It's set in a space station on which there is a severe gender imbalance in births (far more women are born than men) and the women all want to get pregnant in order to advance their careers and social position. Why men on the station are reluctant to have sex is not explained.
- In Michael Crichton's Pirate Latitudes all female characters are either prostitutes or lascivious women. Everyone seems to expect this of them, and to assume it is their natural role in Caribbean society. The only people to turn down sex in the whole book are men (though it doesn't happen often).
- In Disclosure several characters try to make the claim that All Men Are Perverts and All Women Are Prudes. This is uniformly contradicted with statistics that suggest female bosses sexually harass male employees every bit as often as their male counterparts. Thus it is suggested that each gender is inherently lustful. Meredith Johnson exemplifies this trope quite well.
- In Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust, Mephistopheles' witches behave like rock-star groupies towards him. Even Gretchen, the village maiden courted by Faust, makes a play for Mephistopheles, despite her otherwise consistently impeccable behavior. Mephisto never does the deed with any of the women he meets (he prefers male angels), though he appreciates the attention.
- A Brother's Price takes place in a world with few men, since they strongly tend to miscarry or be stillborn. As a result men are kept carefully sheltered and secluded, because otherwise women abduct them in "husband raids". One such man, the very beautiful and almost-of-marrying-age Jerin, is noted to have had erotic dreams, and after some Questionable Consent is happy to be seduced by a visiting princess. Later in the book he goes out in public, surrounded by protective sisters, and a note is made that women stare at him with either envy—if only I had a man like that!—or open speculation, wondering if they could get away with stealing him. He actively fears being abducted and raped. Virginity is highly valued in unmarried men, since this world averts STD Immunity. It's an interesting use of this trope, because on the one hand part of this "lust" is greed; there's economic value in men and particularly virgins. On the other hand, lust is certainly part of it. Jerin was taught the "art" of pleasing a woman with his hands and mouth, the better to keep several wives happy; another male character employed the Lysistrata Gambit to great effect.
- The Malleus Maleficarum, a virulently misogynistic manual for Witch Hunters, gives this trope as the reason why women are more susceptible (allegedly) to becoming witches.
- This is certainly Boccaccio's view in the Decameron. See the page quote above for an example.
- Mark Twain in Letters From the Earth certainly espouses this view, likening women to a candlestick hankering for a candle, and men to a candle that peters out long before the candlestick is tired of holding them. Satan ultimately reflects that perhaps polygamy is reasonable—as any woman would need a team of men to keep her truly satisfied.
- In The Dinosaur Lords, Melodía's Girl Posse likes to talk about who sleeps with whom, who's hot and who's the best in bed, much to Melodía's annoyance. There's also the question of whether they're doing this just to taunt her.
- Star Trek goes here in a number of ways.
- Women constantly seem to be throwing themselves at Kirk and Spock in Star Trek: The Original Series. The same happens with Riker, and to a lesser extent Picard, on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
- In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Naked Now," the crew is infected with a virus that mimics the effects of being drunk. The menfolk mostly just get silly, but Tasha Yar puts on a slinky dress and successfully seduces Data while Dr. Crusher unsuccessfully attempts to do the same to Picard (not that he didn't look very interested in the prospect, but he manages to stave off temptation long enough to save the day).
- Much later in "Conundrum" when the crew is stricken with Easy Amnesia, Ensign Ro lets herself into Commander Riker's quarters to surprise him with some lovin' when he returns… not that he seems to mind.
- Betazoid women enter "The Phase" when they reach middle-age. This is like a biological clock version of a starship going to Red Alert and results in their sex driving quadrupling (or more)! Since this is a normal part of the life-cycle of every Betazoid female, the trope is played straight for any of them in this age group, although younger or older women are more within the conventional range of humanoid sexuality.
- On Star Trek: Enterprise, the Denobulans have a polyamorous society, where everybody has multiple spouses. When one of Doctor Phlox's wives hits on Trip, the latter, a futuristic Southern Gentleman, awkwardly approaches Phlox about his wife's attempted "infidelity". Phlox's reaction is that Trip should have taken her up on the offer!
- T'pol when she was going through Pon Farr; the Vulcan Mate or Die propositioned Dr. Phlox and Lt. Malcolm Reed.
- The main characters in The Golden Girls, especially Blanche. Not so much Rose though.
- Most women (and several men!) in Rescue Me are falling all over themselves to sleep with a firefighter.
- The Enchanted Forest pub's 'queen of queens' in Galavant is definitely enjoying the half-naked Galavant in this number from the season two premiere. Possibly zigzagged trope as well, considering she's not only getting handsy with him herself, but presenting him to be ogled by the gay pub's patrons as well. The show also features Madalena, a queen with a huge sex drive who at one point sings about how she likes "getting randy with whoever is handy", and even the hero's love interest Isabella gets her moments, including some Eating the Eye Candy.
- Californication. You'd be hard-pressed to find a woman in LA who doesn't throw herself at Hank. Given his sex addiction, it's not exactly good news for him.
- Any VH-1/MTV reality show that involves women trying to win "the heart" of some C list Celebrity.
- Dr. Caitlin Snow in The Flash (2014) is always Eating the Eye Candy while examining cute guys. She once performed a "thorough" full body search on Jay Garrick under the guise of it being a normal medical procedure.
- All three of the main female characters in Married... with Children qualify, even Straw Feminist Marcy.
- Many of the nurses in M*A*S*H, specially in the first couple of seasons.
- Several of the female guest-of-the-week (Nance in "Henry in Love", visiting inspector in "House Arrest").
- Initially most of the nurses, including "Hot Lips" were eager to please the men in the camp. Most of the doctors had girlfriends who were nurses, including Henry, Trapper, and Frank, who were all married. As the show progressed, the mood gradually changed. Henry was replace by Colonel Potter. Trapper was replaced by BJ. Frank was replaced by Winchester. Colonel Potter and BJ were both faithfully married men who were only rarely tempted to stray. By this time, Hawkeye was increasingly cynical, drinking heavily, and was starting to lose his grasp on reality. He'd also managed to develop a reputation for being a womanizer and soon found it nearly impossible to get a date with a nurse and had to choose from women who visited the camp.
- Margaret also became less and less lustful as the series wore on. After a trip to Tokyo, she met and became engaged to Donald and stopped dating Frank. After her short-lived wedding to Donald, she still lusted after other men who visited the camp, but eventually stopped jumping every powerful man to visit the camp.
- The Man From UNCLE is particularly strong in this regard. Women (and teenagers) who are not married, not over 60 (and not all of those) and not blatantly feminist are almost invariably (sometimes predatorily) interested in Napoleon, Illya or even Waverly.
- Particularly egregious was the way Salty Oliver—the only woman on the show who annoys Napoleon enough to ask her to shut up—eventually set her sights on Napoleon in "The Ultimate Computer Affair".
- And then there's the eugenics girl who was chasing Illya in The Cap and Gown Affair.
- Most of the girls on Gossip Girl show this to a degree. A recurring situation in the first season was that the guys Blair and Serena dated kept insisting on "waiting", whereas Blair and Serena both just wanted sex. Blair spends at least one episode a season trying to seduce/sleep with Chuck just because she wants sex. Also, Serena apparently considers a few weeks an impossibly long time to wait for sex. Since the boys are just as bad, it's really more like People Love Sex.
- In The Office (US), nearly all of the female characters (including Angela!) have had sex in the office and several of them are pretty kinky at home too. Phyllis has shared steamy details about her sex life with Bob Vance, and Meredith is an alcohol-fueled sex machine.
- How I Met Your Mother seems to run on this as well with Lilly and Robin having really high sex drives, Lilly's being even higher than her husband's. On her wedding day she even gets him to do it with her in a bathroom. She later even pulls off a female version of "the naked man" trick.
- Bedtime Stories which is about a bordello run by a madam named Belle (Kim Dawson) who helps women fulfill their sexual fantasies by pairing them with the gigolos she employs, exemplifying this Trope. Belle also has sex with the gigolos and the women who come to her. In the "No Names, Please" episode, Belle's client, Tania is looking for a man who wants a purely physical relationship. Belle tries out the guy herself in order to make sure he's right for Tania.
- Playgirl TV is the Distaff Counterpart to the Playboy Channel and is the first adult channel to target women.
- The Steven Moffat era of Doctor Who falls in step with this a good bit, with most women, from main characters to recurring characters to one-offs making the presence of their sex drives and attractions quite obvious in their dialogue and actions, aimed not just at the Doctor, but at men in general. This was notably a major departure from the way women were portrayed in the Russell T. Davies era (where Women Are Wiser and almost exclusively celibate in practice, if not outright chaste, even in the nature of their romantic affections).
- On 7th Heaven, Lucy wants to have sex with her boyfriend to feel like he loves her, but he won't have sex with her. In the same episode Mary says that she wants to have sex but she doesn't want to let herself yet and their mother is constantly being sexual toward their father.
- It is extremely hard to find a woman in Spartacus: Blood and Sand who does not fulfill this trope. Sybil comes the closest to averting it, and may in fact be the only one who does.
- On Passions, in these3scenes, we see this Trope in action when Theresa and Sheridan drag Ethan and Luis to the middle of the floor when the two pose as the male strippers who were hired for their bridal shower.
- Girl Code: This is taken as a given, and part of the "girl code" is not letting guys realize how horny a girl is unless it's in her best interest.
- After showing this Hawaii News Now segment on the Spartan Race, we find out that the three female newsanchors are distracted by the shirtless competitors.
- In this segment on Today Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager enthusiastically apply a copious amount suntan oil on the bare chest of Tonga's flag-bearer, Pita Taufatofua at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
- This is demonstrated in the Dinosaurs episode "Wilderness Weekend", where Earl Sinclair and his friends go out hunting while Earl's wife Fran, her mother Ethyl, Monica DeVertebrae, and Sid Turtlepuss's wife stay at home. Because of a mix-up, Earl and his friends are stuck with coffee while the women are left with beer, which they end up drinking. After becoming inebriated, the women become a lot more open about their attraction to the opposite sex. Sid's wife admits that she only married her husband because he had a nice butt, the women spend some time watching sports programs to ogle at the male athletes, they eventually decide to come after Earl and the boys after figuring that they're probably wandering around naked and slapping each other with towels, and Fran makes several remarks toward Earl near the end of the episode that strongly imply she'd like to do the nasty with her husband soon.
- The central theme of most of 3OH!3's music; more accurately "Women are exploitable holes and they love it".
- "Coalmine" by Sara Evans—the main protagonist has "nothin' but the supper on" because she knows that she and her partner are only going to have sex until it's time for him to go back to work the next morning.
- Olivia Newton-John in the radioactiva remix of the video for "Physical".
- "Manhunt" by Karen Kamon.
- "Mexico Road" by K.T. Oslin is a female sex tourism song. Her songs "Younger Men", "I'll Always Come Back", "You Can't Do That" and "This Woman" are Ethical Slut songs, while "Hey Bobby", "Oo-Wee" and "Cornell Crawford" are told from a sexually aggressive woman's point of view. In fact, so many of her songs drip with sexual innuendo and bravado that a newspaper reporter once referred to her as "the Tina Turner of Country Music" as a result.
- In The Go-Go's cover version of the Jan and Dean song of the same name, Surf City's a sausagefest:
"And we go to Surf City 'cause it's two to one
Go to Surf City, gonna have some fun
Go to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
Go to Surf City, gonna have some fun
Go to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
Two boys for every girl"
- In "Take Off Your Clothes" by Morningwood, the girl wants to go all the way while the guy wants to wait.
- "Hot Stuff" by Donna Summer from Bad Girls, where a woman goes out and looks for some "hot stuff" tonight.
- "So Many Men, So Little Time" by Miquel Brown.
- "She Bangs" by Ricky Martin:
"And she bangs, she bangs
When she moves, she moves
I go crazy
'Cause she looks like a flower but she stings
Like a bee
Like every girl in history
She bangs, she bangs"
- Christina Aguilera is outspoken about her sexuality. The Bionic and Stripped albums, and within Back To Basics: "Nasty Naughty Boy" and "I Got Trouble" prove it. This is one of her selling points.
- "Bitches Ain't Shit" by Dr. Dre (now with a ukulele cover by Pink Guy) puts a more negative and misogynistic spin on this trope:
"Bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks
Lick on these nuts and suck the dick"
- "Getting Lucky" by The Chipettes.
- "Just Another Lover Tonight" by Cheryl Ladd, where a female pickup artist's out on the prowl.
- "Good Girls" by 5 Seconds of Summer.
- "It's Raining Men" by the Weather Girls.
- In Beetle Bailey, Rolf, the civilian tennis instructor appeared in a few strips during the early eighties and he was very popular with the female characters (especially Miss Buxley). In one strip, Miss Buxley takes a private tennis lesson with him and in another, she asks General Halftrack if she could take off work early so she can take a longer one with him.
- All of the women shown in Bally's Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy are depicted this way, such as the woman in the middle of the backglass who's enthusiastically grabbing the groin of a man behind her.
- Implied in Williams Electronics' Scared Stiff, as Elvira's bedpost has nearly a dozen notches on it.
- In America's Most Haunted, the tombstone for Molly Fitzpatrick, ghost of the Haunted Bar, includes the quotes "Loved by Many" and "If this grave is a'rocking, don't come a'knocking."
- That's what Hugh Hefner has been saying in Playboy by having either an explicit or an implicit male presence in the pictorials.
- Despite the obvious jokes about Playgirl being bought mainly by gay men, Playgirl sells just as well as its Distaff Counterpart, and, yes, many of its readers are women.
- The Abercrombie & Fitch catalog serves as Poor Man's Porn for a lot of teenage girls and women who like to look at the naked and nearly naked male models in them. They also like to imagine themselves in the place of the female model in the photo layouts that suggest she's about to engage in group sex with them.
- In WWE from the Attitude Era until the PG switch, the women being sexual was treated as the default. There have been plenty of evil seductresses in WWE's time, but heroic women have still been presented as somewhat sexual. If there's ever been a non-sexual female, she's usually portrayed as an example of Sour Prudes; Molly Holly for example was a conservative prude as a heel and, while the Token Wholesome in a roster full of sexy Divas, she had still provided some tame Fanservice as a face.
Religion and Mythology
- Loads of women in Greek Mythology had a certain lustfulness about them—Aphrodite being the Ur-Example.
- In some versions of Jason And The Argonauts, they come across an island populated only by women. They ask for hospitality, which is given to them in exchange for impregnating them. In one version, they are intended as a sacrifice later on, barely escaping with their lives. In this case it's arguably not so much about lust—-the women had killed off the men and needed some way to not die out in a few decades. Specifically, the women of the Isle of Lemnos insulted Aphrodite somehow, and were cursed with a horrible stench. Their disgusted husbands ditched them for better-smelling Thracian wives, and in revenge the Lemnian women murdered the husbands and Thracian women both. By the time the Argonauts arrived, the stench had worn off and the women were desperate for… er, children. And then a ship full of handsome, heroic Greek men pulled into harbor…
- One of Herakles' lesser-known feats is going with Theseus (of Labyrinth and Minotaur fame) to the land of the Amazons. The queen, Hippolyta, wants to keep Theseus as a consort, and says they'll be released once Herakles deflowers/impregnates 50 Amazon women, figuring this'll get her a few days to enjoy Theseus' company. Herakles, being Herakles, does the deed in one night.
- This is the Superhero Origin of Tiresias the Blind Seer. At an earlier point he was turned into a woman for seven years after angering Hera, during which he married and bore children. His manhood was later restored. Later, Zeus and Hera had an argument over who gets greater enjoyment from sex, women or men. Naturally, they asked the one person who'd experienced it both ways, and he told them women get ten times as much pleasure from sex as men. Angry, Hera struck him with blindness. To compensate, Zeus gave him the gift of foresight and a long lifespan.
- Many parts of The Bible portray men and women alike as inherently sinful and vulnerable to temptation, with said temptation often being sexual in nature. Many women only appear long enough to tempt a male character or serve as examples of how the people of a specific nation have fallen into sin.
- Lot's daughters decided to, with their mother and husbands destroyed with Sodom, and no other avenue for having children available, get their father drunk and rape him. (Though that arguably had less to with lust and more to do with Only You Can Repopulate My Race, because they thought they were the Last of Their Kind.) The two resulting sons later become the founders of two tribes, the Moabites and Ammonites—who happened to be among the Hebrews' perennial enemies.
- The most pornographic passage of the bible has Israel and Judah represented as two sisters whoring around big time. God punishes them.
- The "Whore of Babylon", an allegorical figure of evil.
- After Joseph's brothers sell him into slavery, he winds up in Egypt, where the wife of his owner tries to seduce him because he's hot. When he turns her down, she accuses him of trying to rape her and has him thrown in prison. The fact Potipher didn't just execute Joseph outright likely shows that he knew his wife enough to realize that Joseph didn't do it and putting Joseph in prison was probably a compromise.
- Subverted with many of the female heroines in the Bible who are either level headed and strong willed (Deborah is one great example), faithfully married (Sarah, Priscilla, Abigail), or use their feminine charms to save people (Ruth, Rahab, Mary).
- In the New Testament, Jesus came into contact with the "Woman at the Well" and the "Samaritan Woman". Both women were accused of adultery, but Jesus forgave them when society didn't. The latter of which resulted in the famous "He who is without sin, cast the first stone" quote.
- Mermaids are said to have a very seductive nature and are trying to produce more of their species. Legend states that when a mermaid is turned down on an offer of sex, she'll fly into a rage and will kill the guy who denies her pleasure.
- During the time the Talmud (the Jewish law code) was written, the common stereotype was that women constantly want to have sex, and men constantly are trying to avoid it by taking any excuse to study. There is actually a halakhah (Talmudic/Jewish law) commanding that men have to have sex with their wives at least once a week, or their wives legally have grounds for divorce!
- This is basically the plot of Mozart's Cosě Fan Tutte. Fiordiligi and Dorabella are young women who love their fiances and honestly swear to be faithful, but wise old Don Alfonso knows better. They're women, they won't be able to help themselves! The boyfriends in question don't believe him, pretend to leave town and disguise themselves as passing Albanians. The women try to hold out, but within a day they succumb to the charms of the handsome "foreigners". The men, of course, would never be so easily tempted. Alfonso tells them to marry the girls anyway, and not blame them: they can't help it, they're women!
- The comedy in Lysistrata originally came from this. The women lock themselves in the city treasury and say that nobody's getting any cash or any nookie until the war between Athens and Sparta ends. The men don't take it seriously at first, and the women do, indeed, have a very difficult time with the whole "not having sex" thing (the title character had to stop a few of them from trying to sneak out to meet with their husbands), but the men end up being the ones who crack.
- "Women's Club Blues" from Love Live! makes this the reason why suffragettes are so eager to put their bodies to work in the world of men.
- In William Shakespeare's works:
- The eponymous hero of Hamlet develops this worldview, presumably from his mother's incomprehensible preference for his Evil Uncle over his father. In Hamlet-world, the micro is always universalised, so if one morally ambiguous woman is lustful, then all women are dishonest sluts. He consequently attacks his sometime-sweetheart, Ophelia with vicious and undeserved accusations of infidelity.
Hamlet: If thou dost marry, I'll give thee this plague for thy dowry: be thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, thou shalt not escape calumny. Get thee to a nunnery, go: farewell. Or, if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool; for wise men know well enough what monstersnote you make of them. To a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell.
- In Othello, Iago convinces Othello of this to persuade him that his wife must be cheating on him.
- This is one of the charges Lear of King Lear brings against his daughters after they betray him.
- The eponymous hero of Hamlet develops this worldview, presumably from his mother's incomprehensible preference for his Evil Uncle over his father. In Hamlet-world, the micro is always universalised, so if one morally ambiguous woman is lustful, then all women are dishonest sluts. He consequently attacks his sometime-sweetheart, Ophelia with vicious and undeserved accusations of infidelity.
- In Dante's Inferno, the Lust demons are mostly females, as well as the damned residing in this circle. But then again, there are several other reasons to that.
- Morrigan and Lilith in Darkstalkers are dangerously lustful Horny Devils, willing to sleep with anything.
- All women in the World Union in Culpa Innata are like this. All women born in the World Union are like this. Immigrants from "Rogue States" still cling to "outdated" traditions and expect the man to be the initiator of a relationship and the one to buy gifts and pay for dates. In fact, this is gender-flipped in the Union for "scientific" reasons, which is a problem for both male and female immigrants. Male immigrants put off Union women with their "aggressive" approach, while female immigrants have a hard time getting themselves to ask men out (especially those from heavily-patriarchal cultures). Especially since, for the most part, relationships in the Union are short and primary sex-based (marriages, or "nuptual agreements", are illegal).
- Rachel Amber and Chloe from Life Is Strange are revealed to have undergone a "Bad Boy phase" while Max was away and dated a string of tough guys around the town in their party time. Possibly each other as well.
- All the females squad mates in Mass Effect 2 admit they're sexually attracted to Commander Shepard and come onto him first. Hilariously, if you play as Female Shepard the male squad mates are too afraid to admit their feelings for her, forcing her to make the first move.
- In The Witcher, the player character can sleep with 20 different women, often at the proverbial drop of the hat… and a character named "The Reverend", while leading a mob out to Burn the Witch! (carrying Torches and Pitchforks, no less!) goes on a misogynistic rant blaming women's "carnal nature" for leading mankind into sin. It's safe to say the trope is in full effect.
- Most of the women in Groovy, Kinda like a good tumble as often as they can get it. While Edison wants Larry and Anya, and Anya wants Larry and Edison, and Eleanor wants half the sophomore class at the local high school, Stephanie's not programmed to want anybody. Yet.
- In the Ciem Webcomic Series, only Erin appears to avert this trope. All the other women are obsessed with either how to have sex, or how to blackmail someone else for getting it.
- The females in Sonichu would get it on with their "sweethearts" in public all day long if it weren't for their men being preoccupied working or fighting crime (with the notable exception of Mary Lee Walsh, the main villain). The Rosechus, in particular, seem to anxiously wait at home for their boyfriends or husbands to return so they can have sex. That being said, few of the female characters seem particularly promiscuous: Once they find a male, they will only have sex with that male. They just have sex with him very very often. The ones who ARE promiscuous, like Silvana, are evil.
- Nearly all women in Karin-dou 4koma are—to be more specific—Lovable Lustful Lesbians. There's not much to contrast them against, however, since only six males have ever appeared—and only token appearances at that.
- It's a given in The Rock Cocks. Elizabeth seems to be a subversion until she is seen masturbating to a photo of Seth.
- Vampire Cheerleaders: Lori and her Coven are considered to be the hottest girls at Bakertown High and all of them are sexually active, especially Suki.
- When Leonard threatened to expose them as vampires, in vol.1, they bought his silence by implementing "Plan BC".
- While in vol.2, Leslie got revenge on the Ainley Cheerleading Team by seducing the sports club manager (making him her thrall in the process) so he'd give them their timeslot.
- Suki also had Leonard massage her feet several times, while he was their thrall. And she invited him to her room for another round of BC, later that evening. By the final volume, she's officially become his "VWB".
- In Yumi's Cells, which chronicles a woman's brain cells' struggle to keep her functioning, the Naughty Cell occasionally causes a ruckus that the others have to deal with, especially when she's near a coworker she's attracted to.
- Lilly of Kimchi Cuddles thinks so:
Narration: There's a stereotype that dudes will sleep with anything and women are picky… but in my experience, the opposite is closer to what's true
Lilly: Must stop thinking about sex and pay attention to my date's boring story about train engines…
- American Dad! overuses this trope like there's no tomorrow. Besides our two main female characters Francine and Haley, most of the women portrayed on the show think about sex a lot. Roger even states that women are the most lustful during spring break, when he pushes Steve and Stan into having fun at his party, which is naturally proven to be true by the show's logic.
- Every female in Batman: The Killing Joke is portrayed lusting after another man or openly admitting their sexual relationships.
- Batgirl became a crime fighter to gain Batman's admiration and constantly complains to her Gay Best Friend about how she's unable to get laid. Then, after picking a fight with her mentor she instantly decides to have sex with him right on the rooftop.
- The Joker's late wife Jeannie states that one of the reasons she stays with her husband is because he's "good in the sack."
- Justified with the prostitutes since it's a part of the job.
- The Cleveland Show:
- Donna admits that she fantasizes about other men all the time whenever she has sex with her husband. Most of the time involving bad boys.
- Her daughter Roberta is exactly the same. Whenever she's not pushing her boyfriend into sex, she considers checking out other men.
- The Kanker sisters from Ed, Edd n Eddy always sexually harass the Eds, in whose absence they're usually always discussing the Eds. They also tend to dogpile one Ed if the other two aren't around, and in the absence of any Eds they may fawn over other male figures they deem attractive.
- Family Guy: Lois and Bonnie both cheated on their husbands without thinking twice. In multiple episodes, Lois even raped her husband Peter. Downplayed in that the show also uses the All Men Are Perverts trope constantly.
- King of the Hill: When all the wives of the main protagonists get together they rank how sexually attractive each man in the neighborhood is. The list goes by John Redcorn, Boomhauer, Khan, Dale Gribble, and tied for last are Bill and Hank Hill. The rest of their episode revolves around Hank's wife trying to prove that her husband can be sexy. Hilarity Ensues.
- Woody Woodpecker : In the short "A Fine Feathered Frenzy" Gorgeous Gal, an overweight and elderly bird with a sexy voice takes an instant liking to Woody Woodpecker. The second she meets him she winks at him, clicks her heels in excitement and heads towards him so she can hold and kiss him. After several smooches, seduction attempts and blatant offers for the Woodpecker to make love to her, she somehow manages to get the reluctant "silly boy" to marry her. Their honeymoon on a golden submarine starts immediately after the wedding ceremony.
- South Park: In Medicinal Fried Chicken, after giving himself testicular cancer Randy tells his buddies that women are into big balls. Cue Randy Gainaxing his inflated balls in front of multiple women complimenting on their size.
- Skwisgaar Skwigelf in Metalocalypse tends to trigger this trope a lot. Of the five members of Dethklok, he is easily the most sexually active, and in his case, the trope is about as literal as it gets. All women...young AND old...are attracted to him, and tend to get action. During a bet with Murderface, Skwisgaar estimated that he had sexual intercourse with over 400 women...and he wasn't even trying.
- Ironically enough, his mother tends to invoke the opposite trope.
- The wenches are chasing the pirates on the Pirates of the Caribbean boat ride at both Disney Land and Disney World. This is a result of Bowdlerization. In the original versions, the men were chasing the women (presumably for You-Know-What) except for a single case where a (homely) woman was chasing one of the pirates. Now, it's all women chasing pirates, but the pirates are carrying their booty (no, not that kind) so the women are mostly interested in the goods (again, not that kind).
- There is an urban legend that many colleges in the United States have fraternity houses but not sorority houses because of 19th-century laws that classed any residence of more than five women but no men as a whorehouse. In some cases, this was Truth in Television, but only for so long. Most, if not all, of such laws have long been taken off the books (though not all colleges have built sorority houses since).
- Tamara's characters on The Nostalgia Critic all tend to be in love with the titular character. A lot of male characters seem to fancy him too, but she's the only woman on the show.
