-> ''"At male strip shows, it is still the women that we watch, the audience of women and their eager faces. They are more obscene than if they were dancing naked themselves."''
-->-- '''Jean Baudrillard'''

There's just something completely gorgeous about that other character. The protagonist just can't help but stare and drool over [[BiTheWay his or her]] gleaming smile, sapphire eyes, or any other attractive features. Even if the protagonist declares that she DoesNotLikeMen, expect the protagonist to be unable to stop themselves from noticing how well-built that character over there is, and how compelling his or her eyes are... Sometimes the protagonist's inner monologue will devolve into PurpleProse.

This trope is usually identified with LoveAtFirstSight. Some cases may result in DistractedByTheSexy, eventually leading to {{Longing Look}}s once romance enters the picture.

MaleGaze and FemaleGaze are related, but distinct, as they are concerned with how a work is presented to the audience (i.e., presuming the viewer will come from a male or female perspective, respectively). Eating The Eye Candy refers to a ''character's'' interest (which can, however, carry over into framing and presentation). Gender-flipped examples exist for both tropes. Subjected to DoubleStandard since FemaleGaze doesn't carry the implications of MaleGaze: a woman who looks at a man sexually is more often than not written as 'cute' (blushing and swooning), whereas a man looking at a woman sexually is commonly written as 'vulgar' (making rude remarks and even hooting!). Can be used quizzically in combination with AllWomenAreLustful, BiggerIsBetterInBed, ChippendalesDancers, FemaleGaze, GuyOnGuyIsHot, LongHairedPrettyBoy, LustObject, ReactionShot, MaleFrontalNudity, ShirtlessScene, WalkingShirtlessScene, YaoiFangirl, BeautifulDreamer and StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks.

A cross between HelloNurse, MsFanservice or MrFanservice and the {{Gaze}} tropes.

[[folder:Advertising]]
* The Diet Coke ''11:30'' ads, like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzMfW7oSKLQ this one]] (from 1994), involved an office of women gathering each other round by just saying 11:30 and then "Diet Coke break"- not a single one of them getting a Diet Coke themselves but instead looking across to the building site across the road where a [[HotMenAtWork construction worker would be having his Coke break, peeling his shirt off]], gulping down a can and letting the sweat pour down onto his chest while "I Just Want to Make Love to You" plays.
** RoryBremner parodied this, substituting UsefulNotes/BillClinton for the builder, and making the first woman to arrive closely resemble Monica Lewinsky.
* A 1990 Diet Pepsi commercial had all the guys at a gas station stop and stare at Cindy Crawford in a tank top drinking Diet Pepsi. They'd reverse this in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPLCsqUfuEk a 2003 Super Bowl commercial]], where a hunky man with a Diet Pepsi draws in a gaggle of admirers, including Creator/CindyCrawford and [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Carson]] [[CampGay Kressley]].
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drmeHg2VuTo this]] Diet Rite commercial. when the female reporter goes into the locker room to interview the football players, [[ReactionShot her eyes immediately fixate]] on the [[WalkingShirtlessScene bare chest]] of the [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]] player and the [[TakeOurWordForIt naked body]] of the player with a towel wrapped around his neck.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGKpqH8j31w Jordache Voyeur Girls]]
* The women watching the [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless hunk]] who's washing the Forester in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_7zjKIl050 this Subaru Forester commercial]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLUuFPAJpfs The airport security guards in this Underdaks ad]]
* The housewife watching The Cleaning Hunk in this commercial for [[http://vimeo.com/1789667 Xtra-Pine All Purpose Cleaner]] (mildly {{NSFW}})

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'', when Oboro and Gennosuke are crossing a very narrow bridge, we follow Oboro's gaze as she stares at Gennosuke's back.
* In chapter 2 of {{Manga/Citrus}}, Yuzu ate Mei's candy when she and Mei went bathing together in chapter 2, fantasizing about her hair, skin and how soft it would be to touch her. Mei eventually noticed her gaze...and advanced onto her and asked if she wanted to touch her as a tease.
* Done [[PlayingWithATrope with tongue planted firmly in cheek]] in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', where [[LoonyFan Mayu]] gets a little too fixated on Hei -- particularly his "delicious collarbone" -- after a late-night rescue.
* In ''Manga/DengekiDaisy'' Teru steals glances at Kurosaki when he is walking around shirtless after a shower. Of course, when he tells her that if she wants to look then just ''look'' she denies it.
* In the anime version of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Princess Snake first stares at Goku for his body; she keeps staring, though, because of his [[BigEater table manners]].
* In the ''{{Manga/FAKE}} II'', JJ does this to Dee and attempts to glomp him after a case when Dee is found shirtless. Dee is not pleased.
* Matsuoka Gou from ''{{Anime/Free}}'' does this with every shirtless guy in swim trunks she sees. She's especially fond of Haruka's arm muscles.
** She tries to use their muscles to recruit new Swim Team members in the second season, it doesn't work.
* [[MemeticSexGod Sôsuke]] from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' is subject to this a ''lot'' by all of his admirers. His looks are enough to get everyone (and I mean ''[[EvenTheGuysWantHim everyone]]'') to stop in their tracks and check him out. Even small part bystanders that never show up again (which is made especially obvious in the novels). One [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] instance was with Nami (from the novels), where she [[{{Tsundere}} pretended that]] she was only watching him change clothes because she wanted to make sure he was an AS pilot. Lemon teases her and notes that she was [[CovertPervert just checking him out]]. Oh, and the anime knows to show plenty of {{Fanservice}} of him being shirtless (complete with [[FetishFuel cute little scars all over his body]]). Including a scene where he's hallucinating, and randomly imagines himself being tied up, [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]], and in obvious distress -- ''for no real reason at all''.
* Despite being a {{Chaste Hero}}, the title character of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' pulls this on Hinagiku. After his gaze lingers too long she chastises him for it, but she definitely enjoys the feeling. It helps that he told her straight up that he got completely distracted because she looked so amazing in her dress that he couldn't help but stare.
** Notably, Hinagiku is the ''only'' one of his {{unwanted harem}} to get this from him. Even when seeing other girls nude, he turns away before they get their senses back enough to be chastised, he does blush after seeing (and then thinking back to) seeing Ayumu changing.
* ''[[Anime/TheIdolmaster THE iDOLM@STER]]'' - The audience of the [[ShowWithinAShow Are We Live?]] show, particularly towards Azusa's outfit.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'', Togame doesn't even bother with a pretense for ogling the [[WalkingShirtlessScene perpetually shirtless]] Shichika -- she just tells him to sit still so it's easier to do.
* Most female characters can't help but stare at Aikuro Mikisugi from ''Anime/KillLaKill'', since he's a highly fetching nudist who tends to take his clothes off for no reason. In particular, during an otherwise completely serious and rather moving scene, Mrs Mankanshoku spends most of her screen-time staring intently at his crotch.
* In the first episode of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', it certainly ''looks'' like Ranka's subjecting Alto to some female gaze when they first meet (the BishieSparkle sets on so hard that you can ''hear'' it). Then she admits that she thought Alto was a very pretty ''[[DudeLooksLikeALady girl]]'' until he opened his mouth. [[BerserkButton Alto is not amused.]]
* ''{{Manga/Monster}}'': Johann's handsome features are frequently commented on and checked out by [[EvenTheGuysWantHim a lot of people]].
* One episode of ''Manga/NagasareteAirantou'' has Ikuto taking a bath and being unknowingly watched by Chikage. She glances at his body, makes several comments about his attractive features and blushes while doing so.
* Happens in the ''Manga/OnePiece'' anime when Usopp sees Nami naked on Thriller Bark. Going by the camera's position, he essentially gives her an elevator look, from breasts to waist to crotch (though her breasts and crotch are mostly covered by CensorSteam).
* Similarly, Ash of ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' pulls this one on Misty when he meets up with her between the ''Advance'' and ''Battle Frontier'' arcs. [[ShipTease Misty doesn't chastise him for it.]]
* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Akane occasionally sees Ranma this way -- broad shoulders, cute face, kind smile. In true BelligerentSexualTension style, it often immediately precedes Ranma himself making some spectacularly [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerkish]] remark to her.
** Ranma's other would-be love interests also do this; it's just much rarer that they get the chance to do so. Kodachi does this to Ranma the first time she seems him. Despite the fact he just, you know, knocked her out cold and almost caused her to fall off the roof.
** When Akane sees a naked, male Ranma in the first episode/chapter, she can't help but let her eyes wander down there....
* StudioBONES spoofs it once again in ''Anime/StarDriver'': apparently, Midori Okamoto's [[HumongousMecha Cybody]] has a ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL8W9Hnwdw8#t=2m3s fanservice mode]]''. It backfires, though.
-->"...did you seriously lose because [[DistractedByTheSexy you were watching him flex]]?"
* ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'' has the BeachEpisode, where Amy and her friends force Ledo out of his pilot suit. They then unabashedly stare at him while he's in his boxers, one of them even commenting out loud that he has a nice body.
* Near the end of the HotSpringsEpisode of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', most of the gang beat up the beastmen who operated the Ganmen-disguised-as-hot-springs-resort. The camera pans across the cast... revealing that [[MsFanservice Yoko]] is peeking at the completely naked [[MrFanservice Kamina]]'s butt from the corner of her eye. When he makes a move that would bring her into his sight, she blushes and quickly looks upwards. Shortly afterwards, [[{{Gainaxing}} her jumping up and down in victory celebration makes her suffer a]] WardrobeMalfunction... and Kamina immediately [[DistractedByTheSexy returns the favor]].
* In the 14th episode of ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'', Karina mentions that lately she's been having trouble keeping her eyes off of Kotetsu.
* LightNovel/VampireHunterD can't walk into a single town without half the residents attempting to undress him with their eyes.
* ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln'': Shchelkunchik has a very... painful... take on this trope. Basically, during a divination class, Shchel's crystal ball shows the whole class a humiliating event in his childhood that ended with him pantsless in the school pool with a water scorpion pricking his delicate parts. ''Everyone'' comments on how big and swollen it became, the girls most of all.
* In ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'', Ms. Aoshika asks [[HealingFactor Inugami]] to strip in order to see if he has any wounds (and thus prove if he was the boy she met the night before). She doesn't find any injuries, [[HotForStudent but she's not exactly disappointed...]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* In ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'' after showing off a fancy new pair of Flight Wings Arsenal remarks on how cool Red Hood looks. Starfire thinks he's talking about Red Hood's [[FemaleGaze "buns"]] and wholeheartedly agrees.
* In ''{{Shazam}}! The Monster Society of Evil'', the reporter that Captain Marvel goes to for help takes a very obvious look at his crotch while standing right in front of him.
* MarvelComics' character Starfox causes this as a side effect of his powers, besides [[FlightStrengthHeart also]] being a FlyingBrick. And he can turn the effect UpToEleven to [[PowerPerversionPotential overload your pleasure center]] and incapacitate you by ''feeling too good''. Well, if you've gotta be attacked, that's the way to go...
* [[Comicbook/YoungAvengers Kate Bishop]] spends a few panels staring at a half-naked [[Comicbook/{{Hawkeye}} Clint Barton]] and at her one night stand, Noh-Varr, as he dances in their room in his underwear.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5704240/12/Ashes_to_Ashes Ashes to Ashes]], the ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' fanfic, has May doing this to ''Maxie''!
* ''Fanfic/BaitAndSwitchSTO''
** In chapter four, Eleya watching Gaarra pumping iron in the officers gym. Note that Gaarra had been introduced as [[IntroductionByHookup a guy Eleya picked up in a bar]] the night before she found out he was her new operations officer.
--> He runs a few quick reps as a warmup, then replaces the bar, ups the weight, and starts pumping the iron with a look of intense concentration on his face. 'Course his face isn’t the only thing I’m looking at--''Prophets, get your head out of the gutter, Eleya.''\\
\\
Nope. Despite my best efforts I can feel my nipples hardening against my sports bra so I grab my water bottle and leave the room. Maybe we'd best just try to avoid being in the gym at the same time.
** In ''Fanfic/TheWrongReflection'' Eleya catches her MirrorUniverse doppelganger eying Gaarra with a predatory glint in her eye that Prime!Eleya recognizes. Since by this point she and Gaarra are a couple, this annoys her.
* Beth in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'', pretty constantly towards Literature/SherlockHolmes, best summed up the morning after their wedding. Both are putting on clothes, and she tells him that he's not the only one "enjoying the show". Cue {{Adorkable}} blushes on both sides.
* [[FanFic/HookerVerse Cherry Lipgloss]] did this with describing Critic's [[WholesomeCrossdresser work outfit]]. Subverted later on, as more people view it as dressing like "white trash".
* In [[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-16231-4/Dragonhulk+The+List.htm The List]], to counter the [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Slayers-in-Training]] attempt to get him worked up during swimming lessons, Xander wears a speedo during said lessons. By the second day, every Slayer-in-Training (and almost every woman in the house) attends the swim lessons to watch.
* TD's improved physique is eyed up by Rarity in ''FanFic/TheNonBronyverse'' story ''Wanderings of a Non-Brony'', which she ends up being lightly teased over.
* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, Admiral Nimitz ''thinks'' this is what's happening when a whole crew from another galaxy appears to be ogling her, even asking herself whether she is attractive enough to [[BiTheWay both men and women]] to merit such attention. However, it's not ''her'' they're looking at, it's her Siren tattoos, which ends up subverting the trope.
* All the Amazons in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6438802/36/A-Spark-of-Genius A Spark of Genius]]'' when [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander]] uses an aryballos and stirgil (which involves oiling your body then using a dull knife to scrape it off) to get clean.
-->'''Nearby Amazon''': "Holy Hera, thank you."
* ''FanFic/{{Stray}}'' does something like this in some of its descriptive passages, particularly when Adamska is being described, although [[SlashFic the POV character is another man.]] The story also hangs a lampshade on it:
-->'"Honestly", Otacon thought ruefully, "At this rate, next I'll be thinking about how big and strong and manly he is."
* In ''Fanfic/TealovesSteamyAdventure'', Tealove really enjoys the view of Big Mac's muscular behind as he leads her through the forest.
-->She wasn’t sure if her face was flushing from the run or from watching the newcomer’s plot muscles flexing and rippling. ''Not the worst sight in the world,'' she thought quietly, a smile forming on her lips.
* Valkron repeatedly does this in ''Fanfic/WarriorsOfTheWorldSoldiersOfFortune'' concerning Iruna's chest despite the fact that she never wears anything revealing over the course of the story. He is well aware of this, internally reprimanding himself for it.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5985759/1/Colors-and-Capes Colors and Capes]]'', since Xander is NakedOnArrival he ends up telling Batgirl MyEyesAreUpHere. She simply agrees they probably are without looking up from his waist.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live Action]]
* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' Agent Carter tries to touch post-transformation Steve's abs after the procedure turns him from a scrawny nerd to ridiculously buff but quickly pulls her hand back. [[ThrowItIn The moment was not scripted.]]
* ''Close Enough to Touch'': Ashley (Tracy Ryan) watches and talks to a [[WalkingShirtlessScene half naked Brad (Sabastien Guy)]], fantasizes about having [[BiTheWay lesbian encounter]] with Suzanne Henderson (Brandy Montegro), flirts with and hits on Jason Henderson [[ShirtlessScene when he's pushing iron with his shirt off]]. Eating the Eye Candy makes Ashley so horny that even after having sex with her boyfriend, Neal Henderson (Jason Schnuit), she needs to [[ADateWithRosiePalms pleasure herself]].
* In the movie ''Film/{{Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen}}'', after Lola has just met Sam and he's walking away, there's a moment where the camera focuses on his butt.
* In ''Literature/ExitToEden'', Mistress Lisa [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzvC1wOxqlI#t=36m33s can't keep her eyes off Citizen Elliot]] when she's [[SkinnyDipping swimming]].{{NSFW}}
* Kate [=McQueen=] (Cindy Crawford) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEsyM6jb_cc#t=47m32s is shown scoping out Max Kirkpatrick's (Billy Baldwin) ass]] at the gas station in ''Fair Game''.
* ''{{Film/Far and Away}}'' has a scene where Shannon tries to ogle Joseph while he's undressing (without letting him know she's doing it) through the flimsy screen that divides [[InnocentCohabitation their room]].
* In ''Film/PacificRim'', Mako Mori stares at Raleigh changing clothes in his room, until he catches her doing so. She quickly runs into her room and closes the door...and continues to watch him through the peephole.
* Samantha watches her naked neighbor shower in [[http://www.videos.com/play/M10738318-1/cfnm/cfnm_-_sex_and_the_city_the_movie.html this scene]] from ''SexAndTheCity: The Movie''.{{NSFW}}
* ''{{Film/Thor}}'': It's pretty obvious just how much Darcy appreciated Thor's physical attributes.
--> '''Darcy:''' *staring* You know, for a crazy, homeless person... he's pretty cut.
** Jaimie Alexander, the actress who played Sif, talked in [[http://screenrant.com/thor-movie-jaimie-alexander-sif-rothc-113443/all/1/ an interview]] about this kind of thing going on behind the scenes. People on set agreed it was in character for Sif, but Jaimie did it because... well, just look at Chris Hemsworth.
---> '''Interviewer:''' Yeah…so how hard was it not to just touch what KennethBranagh aptly describes as that ‘awe inspiring” chest every so often?
---> '''Jaimie Alexander:''' Oh no, I would always go up to him like, ‘Hey what’s up how you doing?’ slapping him on the chest. Sometimes my hand would linger a little too long, or I would stare at him and they were like, ‘That’s okay, you’re just in character.’ And I was like, ‘[[SureLetsGoWithThat Yeah…that’s why I’m doing it]].’
** Funnier still, during an interview for ''Film/TheAvengers'', the cast fully admit to being so awed by Chris Hemsworth's size and impressive build that they were reduced to often "just standing around touching him." There's even a .gif floating around of Robert Downey Jr. grinning like a twelve year old as he squeezes Hemsworth's bicep while Hemsworth just smiles and laughs.
* ''Film/TheTransporter 3''. [[SensualSlavs Valentina]] maintains a sullen attitude towards BadassDriver and [[ExplosiveLeash fellow hostage]] Frank, until the latter [[ShirtlessScene takes off his shirt]] to fight a gang of mooks. We see her smile in appreciation and their BelligerentSexualTension starts from that moment, culminating in Valentina [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale forcing Frank to take off his shirt again]] for some GladToBeAliveSex.
-->"You think it's only man turned on by striptease?"
* From ''Film/WhatWomenWant'', among other things, the line, "Oh my God I just looked at his penis. I hope he didn't see me..." Of course, [[DirtyMindReading he does]], and uses a quick adjustment of his pants to immediately draw her attention right back there
* [[http://www.videosurf.com/video/hockey-player-caught-only-wearing-only-jockstrap-public-122808353 In ''Youngblood'' A fully clothed Jessie Chadwick (Cynthia Gibb) gets three lingering stares at Dean Youngblood's (Rob Lowe) bare butt.]]{{NSFW}}
* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods''. On finding a one-way mirror in the cabin, Holden wrestles over whether to tell Dana, who is undressing on the other side of it. He decides to do the gentlemanly thing and they agree to switch rooms. The first thing she sees on the other side of the mirror is Holden [[ShirtlessScene taking off his shirt]], which she clearly appreciates. When he starts unbuckling his pants though, she covers the mirror.
* When she first meets Kal-El in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' [[DarkActionGirl Faora]] gives him a rather appreciative once-over. Later on a US General notices his aide smiling oddly after Superman leaves. When asked why she responds: "Nothing... I just think he's kinda hot."
* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjE8ZrEsipY#t=39m31s this scene]] from ''The Teacher'', Diane is scoping out Sean's ass before coaxing him into her bedroom to [[SexAsRiteOfPassage collect his V - card]] (mildly {{NSFW}}).
* ''Film/LaraCroftTombRaider'': Lara does this to Alex, after she sneaks into his apartment while he was showering.
* Jennie Cooper and Sandra Roxbury are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sg1cJA2zvJY#t=8m48s talking about]] Scott Nash while Laurie Jameson's making eyes with him in ''Where the Boys Are '84''.

[[folder:Literature]]
* Jerin Whistler of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' is [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman among the most beautiful men alive]]. Thanks to the [[GenderRarityValue scarcity of men]] and the resulting broad inversion of gender roles, he's given predatory looks and unwanted touches by most women who aren't family.
* The image for this trope page is the comic book version of the ''AnitaBlake'' Vampire Novel series, in which the main character Anita often has problems with this trope seeing as about 99% of the people surrounding her are gorgeous supernatural men who want to get into her pants. [[SarcasmMode That poor woman.]]
* In ''Literature/TheBelgariad'', most of the story is told from 3rd-person limited perspective, from the point of view of the hero, Garion. Every so often it switches to his romantic interest, who often spends time watching him. There's some descriptions of his sandy hair (usually tousled) and how his face is "nice enough".
* This actually saves the main character's life in one of the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novels, since pausing to admire the view makes an assassin's attack miss him.
* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', Ward swoons over Tisala. He acknowledges that she's not what most men would call a beauty, describing at length that her hair is short, her face and hands scarred, and her nose is, strictly speaking, a bit too long ... but he's smitten with her. Scars and all, she's so fascinating that he hardly looks at anyone else.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', this happens automatically whenever a [[HornyDevils White Court vampire]] is in line of sight. Its not voluntary, either; the White Court exude a natural aura that draws everyone's attention to their physical beauty, both male and female. This helps them "hunt" their prey, drawing mortals to them so they can [[EmotionEater feed on their emotions]] (lust, fear, and despair being the big three). Its also deconstructed, however, when one of them, Thomas, tries to live a normal life without maliciously feeding on humans, as he can't hold down a job because his coworkers inevitably get drawn to him through his involuntary mojo and he gets fired when they jump his bones and his innate hunger for emotions takes over.
** However, it is used for humorous purposes as well. After a bad fight, Thomas is left shirtless and strolls into the bedroom to find one. Harry notes that Murphy watches him and after being caught, she simply shrugs and says it's a nice view. Cue Thomas from the other room, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "I heard that."]]
* ''[[Literature/FateZero Fate/Zero]]'' plays around a bit with this. When Saber and Irisviel first encounter Lancer, the prose takes an immediate turn from standard to totally [[PurpleProse purple]] as it waxes rhapsodic about his beautiful eyes, his elegant features, the small beauty spot on his face that seems to add even more charac--Wait, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diarmuid_Ua_Duibhne beauty spot]]? Yep, it turns out that Lancer is the Heroic Spirit of Diarmund Ua Duibhne (who has a supernatural ability that makes all woman who see his face [[LoveAtFirstSight fall in love]]) and the prose snaps straight back to normal once Irisviel realizes the mind-trickery and overcomes it with her innate magical resistance.
* Narrator of ''Literature/TheHollows'', Rachel Morgan, tends to get kind of distracted around attractive men. It even happens when she converses with the ''demon'' Midias.
* ''NightHuntress'' has several scenes with Cat commenting on how attractive Bones is.
* In ''Literature/{{Pride and Prejudice}}'', Mr. Darcy takes the breath away from every female in Hertfordshire just by walking into the room: "Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien..."
* ''Literature/SabinaKane: Red-Headed Stepchild'' has Sabina walk in on the nymph Vinca while the latter's watching ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. Vinca's a little embarrassed to be caught watching a silly mortal movie, but Sabina tells her not to be: "That elf is hot."
* [[DrinkingGame Take a sip]] for every mention Bella from ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' makes of Edward's SupernaturalGoldEyes, marble skin that [[BishieSparkle sparkles]] in the sunlight, or his overall beauty being comparable to an angel's or a Greek god's. You'll be blacked out under the table in no time. ''Twilight'': Causing liver failure since 2006!
* A great number of Old Skool romance novels (that are in first person, from the woman's point of view) use this -- and understandably so.

* From ''Series/AlmostLive'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mwpct9dTEjU "Great Butts With Wendy White"]]
* During the Shirts vs. Skins basketball game, Melana on ''Average Joe'' was distracted by the Hunks' (Skins) bodies after they took off their shirts.
** Ditto for Larissa on ''Average Joe Hawaii'' when the Hunks took their shirts off for the Shirts vs. Skins dodgeball game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpzGnkBB4Bs Jessie watches J.D. shower]] in the ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'' episode, "The Natural".

** In the episode "Band Candy", Buffy stares enraptured at a [[WalkingShirtlessScene naked-to-the-waist Angel]] doing Tai Chi.
** In "Go Fish", Buffy, Willow and Cordelia assign themselves to the pool as an excuse to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69Lwpo5Ihx4 watch the swim team practice]]. They're pleasantly surprised by what [[FemaleGaze they saw]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69Lwpo5Ihx4#t=0m52s Xander]] [[WalkingSwimsuitScene in a speedo]].
* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'' the title character and Beckett have a history of doing this to each other due to massive amounts of UnresolvedSexualTension. For example, in season two, Castle had gotten attacked by an angry dog when they went to bust a criminal so his pants were ripped and Beckett watches his ass as he walks away with a rather impressed expression. In a deleted scene from season three, Beckett leans over the murder board to write something and Castle checks out her ass. The even more amusing part is that it wasn't scripted--Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion came up with that bit [[ThrowItIn on their own.]]
* In the "Toni's Boys" episode of ''Series/CharliesAngels'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKlnJ3XrqLE Kris Munroe got really turned on in a male strip club when she watched male Angel Bob Sorenson take his shirt off and then watched a male stripper rehearse.]]
* In an episode of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', Phoebe has to be physically pulled away from watching Bane Jessup put on his clothes.

** When Rory, Amy Pond's boyfriend, complains about the Eleventh Doctor spontaneously stripping and changing clothes in front of them in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour "The Eleventh Hour"]], the Doctor [[NoNudityTaboo simply suggests that they turn their backs if they're so bothered by it]]. Rory begrudgingly does so. Amy, on the other hand...
--->'''Rory:''' Aren't you going to turn your back?\\
'''Amy:''' Nope!

* On ''Series/DowntonAbbey'', the arrival of Kemal Pamuk is greeted by Lady Mary dropping her jaw at his handsomeness and Anna, Gwen, and O'Brien congregating behind a cracked door to get a better look. Similarly, most of the downstairs women--plus Thomas--are quite cheered up when Jimmy turns up as the new footman in Series 3.

* In a second season episode of ''Series/HannahMontana'', Miley gazes (there's a spotlight and everything) at a boy named Trey, whom she later thinks is "the one". Of course, Trey is never seen again after that episode, save a brief mention in an episode or two later saying that they had broken up.
* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'': Nearly every male character fancies the Duchess of Wharfedale who is an older yet very sexy and cheeky woman. Sailor Styles starts describing her hotness to Mr. Hornblower, an Acting Lieutenant who is in command of a prize ship and supposed to give Her Grace a passage home to England. Hornblower has to stop the excited Styles from gushing.
-->'''Styles:''' Captain Pellew's coming aboard, sir. And, uh, a lady, sir. Nice dress, sir; good-looking.
-->'''Hornblower:''' Don't froth at the mouth, Styles. You've seen a woman before, man.
-->'''Styles:''' Not in six bloody months, I haven't.
* Argentine soap ''PadreCoraje'' has fifties-girl Clara enjoying the view of buff, sweaty Coraje chopping wood with only his wifebeater on. Only, she still thinks [[BadHabits he's a priest]], and HilarityEnsues when she realized he noticed her watching.
* ''KTLA News'': In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUJppdiNm7k#t=0m19s this interview]], reporter Jessica Holmes' eyes are practically glued to Ryan Lochte's [[WalkingShirtlessScene bare chest]].
* ''Series/{{Lois and Clark}}'' has a SexySilhouette scene where both Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain mutually flabbergasted each other while changing clothes. Very unsubtle in GettingCrapPastTheRadar -- [[SomethingElseAlsoRises Clark pops his cork, while Lois drips a little puddle onto the floor]]. I'm talking about the champagne, of course.
* ''Series/LostGirl'' has several examples.
** Used as ShipTease when Kenzi is distracted by [[MrFanservice Hale's abs]]. It's also a pretty hilarious moment since she is all but [[http://screencapped.net/tv/lostgirl/displayimage.php?album=581&pid=1404325#top_display_media devouring him with her eyes.]]
** The ENTIRE premise of the season four teaser trailer. It features [[MsFanservice Bo]] washing her car and getting soaked and covered in soap while Lauren and Dyson look on. Also funny that Lauren has completely forgotten about the ice cream cone that is dripping down her wrist.
* ''TheNanny'': In the "Maggie's Boyfriend" episode, Fran and Maggie are seen looking at Maggie's boyfriend Michael's butt in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYyyEFiFQnA#t=6m3s this scene]].

In the following episode, "Hostile Environment", after Catherine watches him get undressed.

* The 1995 BBC miniseries adaptation of ''PrideAndPrejudice'' took the admiration for Mr. Darcy UpToEleven. There was lots of camera time devoted to Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy riding horseback, bathing, swimming, or casting smouldering gazes around. Even ladies in-universe liked it. Colin Firth was a lust object for BBC female viewers due to one particular scene: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hasKmDr1yrA Having a swim and "Mr. Darcy! Your breeches!"]]. It reached MemeticMutation levels. The scene was parodied in ''LostInAusten'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WOCU7eHzeI&feature=related Have a look here]].
* The hosts of ''Series/QueerEye'' liked to do this -- loudly -- to their straight-guy makeover subjects, both for laughs and to serve the larger purpose of making them feel more attractive.
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'':
** Done numerous times sometimes seriously (e.g. with Colin Farrell), sometimes less so ([[DistractedByTheSexy where the distracted gazer walks into, or trips over something]]), and sometimes just outright mocked and lampshaded (when a male patient had such a winning smile it was affecting everyone who saw it).
** Inverted: No one wants to see The Todd's banana hammock.
* Parodied in an episode of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' in which George is enjoying the view down a woman's loose shirt and her dad steps up behind him: "Get a good ''look'', Costanza???"
* Done often on ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', in particular with Samantha's various conquests, and especially ramped up for TheMovie. She is quite tempted by her hot next-door neighbor, who just so happens to shower outside as the camera lovingly lingers over his body and even gives us a brief cock shot.
* Lampshaded in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0OCeNB4n-k this]] "Smack the Pony" sketch.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'':
** Lana once has a long look at Clark, who has just fixed a water pipe.
** Chloe has a smaller one in ''Devoted'', but in ''Escape'' she gets a good long one when he is naked save for a towel.
** In ''Crusade'', when Lois met with a naked amnesic Clark for the first time she tells herself to look at his face, but soon lets her eyes wander lower. Later in the episode when Clark disrobes himself in the hospital, both Lois and the nurse blatantly ogle him.
* In an episode of ''Series/SpinCity'', the female workers keep calling in a hot water-cooler repair guy (or something similar) with increasingly-trivial or thinly-veiled requests because they enjoy watching him work. Of course, he soon gets fed up with being seen as a sex object.
* On ''Sunrise On 7'', Edwina Barthowolomew [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m83m6GlRmcc#t=0m20s ogles the Australian men's water polo team]] while she's covering them at the [[OlympicGames 2012 London Olympics]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LM6JIBpISzI&feature=related This]] Season 3 teaser trailer of ''TheVampireDiaries'' should come with a sponge (to sop up the drooling) and a biscuit to sop up that gravy...
* In the MadeForTVMovie ''Vows of Deception'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oOV6C7zKxs#t=28m58s Lucinda (Cheryl Ladd) ogles a half - naked Nick (Michael Woolson) bare chest.]]
* ''Series/TheXFiles'':
** Eating the female eye candy happened in "First-Person Shooter" with the character of Jade Blue Afterglow, a super hot stripper dancer who was wearing a silver metallic miniskirt outfit with chains. Testosterone frenzy ensued. All the male officers tried to watch her interrogation, the detective investigating the case and Mulder both bit their knuckle to show they liked her a lot, and Mulder couldn't help grinning sillily while questioning her.
** Eating the male eye candy occurred in "Bad Blood" when Scully first met sheriff Hartwell. When he entered, she was completely dazzled by his cowboy looks, complete with stylish boots, jeans, gun belt, shirt, [[BadassLongcoat leather coat]], badge, and hat. He had a cute smile and prominent cheekbones. And he most definitely did not have big buck teeth nor did he have a slight overbite. Jealous much, Mulder?
* From ''The Young and the Restless'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3ByHQ3H9_M the look Lauren Fenmore gives]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene a half naked Brad Carlton]] when she meets up with him in the weight room at the Jabot gym.
* In an episode of ''Series/{{Galavant}}'', when Isabella takes a good look at a shirtless Galavant dousing himself with water, all she can say is "Damn."

* K.T. Oslin does a lot of this during the [[MrsRobinson cougar song]] "Younger Men". She drops everything just to [[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks look at young men's asses]] and she is panting with lust throughout the song (especially during the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPT3A1YZRos live version]]and after singing this verse):
--> "Woah, look over here\\
We got a cute little ol' runner to the right\\
[[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks Blue shorts,]] [[WalkingShirtlessScene no shirt]]\\
Whoo! You're lookin' good darling
--> That's right, stay in shape"[[note]]In the live version, she tells the audience "I was out walkin' around this afternoon and I saw a cute little farmer standin' there with blue jeans on and [[ShirtlessScene no shirt]]!

** In the Citadel DLC for ''3'', your love interest will turn up to give you a hand while you're still in civilian clothes, and will take a moment to study your backside and comment on your outfit. If your romantic interest isn't part of your regular team (Jack, Miranda, Traynor, Cortez, Kelly), it'll be Liara, and she'll ''still'' study your backside and comment on your outfit. This can happen even if you're wearing the same costume you've had on since you first got access to the armour control panel.
* There's a moment in ''[[VideoGame/NancyDrew The Haunting Of Castle Malloy]]'' where this happens off-camera. When Nancy calls her girlfriends Bess and George for hints, they pause in talking to her, to savor the sight of a perfect poolside set of washboard abs.
* In NeverwinterNights Hordes of the Underdark, at one point a Mimic steals your character's armor. If your character is male and Aribeth is in the party, some humorous dialogue ensues.
