[[caption-width-right:228:Some variations on the theme.]]
A scene where it is made very clear that a character has found something so hot that they have to go somewhere where they can perform some [[ADateWithRosiePalms immediate self-service]].

This can be a form of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, assuming even the implication isn't too much for the censors.

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', when Rei tells how Asuka dragged her into the shower to wash her body personally, Shinji and Touji excused to the bathroom for a few minutes.
-->Asuka had more or less dragged her into the shower before coming shopping, something that had soured her mood somewhat. Especially the enforced use of soap.\\
Of course, when she had told that last fact to everyone, Shinji and Toji had both excused themselves to the bathroom for a few minutes before returning with small bits of bloody toilet paper stuffed up their nostrils. Rei did not quite understand what that had been about, but the other two females in their group had just rolled their eyes while Kaji just snickered a little.

* In ''[[Literature/PaladinOfShadows A Deeper Blue]]'' by Creator/JohnRingo, Katya was infiltrating a drug runner's boat by playing an airhead beach bunny dressed in a tiny bikini. Greznya (also dressed in a tiny bikini, this is a John Ringo book) was visiting the boat and passed along a message capsule through a bottle of vodka. To cover it, two of the girls got into a [[GirlOnGirlIsHot cat fight]]. The bad guy who had video surveillance of the entire boat told his boss "I'm sure they didn't pass anything to each other. I ran that clip a dozen times. Maybe more. Zoomed all over it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to my quarters..."

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** Rachael and Monica lose their apartment in a bet with Chandler and Joey, but finally get it back when they agree to kiss for a minute. The two guys then go into their rooms as soon as that is over.
---> '''Chandler:''' [[WorthIt Totally worth it!]]
---> '''Joey:''' [[TakeOurWordForIt That was one good minute!]]
---> '''Chandler:''' Good night!
---> '''Joey:''' Good night!
** The trope also manifests in an episode where Chandler asks Monica and Rachel for sexual advice. Monica's advice becomes ... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdK6LVDI3kg rather enthusiastic]]. When Monica finishes, totally orgasmic just from her description, she races off to her bedroom, Rachel races off to her own bedroom and Chandler races off to the bathroom.
* A notable example in ''{{Series/Seinfeld}}'' ("The Contest", about the four main characters wagering on who can go the longest without masturbating).

* In ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' when Amy is talking to Sheldon and starts fantasising. She runs to her bathroom to brush her teeth.

-->''"I need to go brush my teeth. It might take a while."''
* In the 1970s TV Series ''HotLBaltimore'', a character who is implied to be gay by his "swish" demeanor and stereotypical gay mannerisms, mentions in one episode where he is "going into the toilet and meditate."
* In ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'', when Herb is talking with Charlie about rumors of Alan's girlfriend Lindsey doing softcore porn, he excuses himself by going off to "take a shower".

* ''Series/{{Reign}}'': The infamous (and edited-down-by-the-network) sequence in the first episode in which Kenna finds a quiet spot to "relieve tension" after viewing two people making love is presented in a somewhat tongue-in-cheek manner as she races through the palace with a knowing look on her face until she finally finds a place.

** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', The Iron Bull uses a qunari phrase (Taarsidath-an halsaam) that translates most closely to "I will bring myself sexual pleasure later, while thinking about this with great respect."

* ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'''s Alan will sometimes have to head to the bathroom for some "alone time" when the sexual shenanigans of the main female cast get to be too much for him.

[[folder: Web Original ]]

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': One more than one occasion, Phase has pulled a DiscretionShot about this, [[BreakingTheFourthWall stating outright that it was none of the readers' business]] what he was doing when he was alone in his bedroom.

* After Molotov Cocktease lives up to her name in ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', Brock-- with a very visible erection-- leaves the room to "take care of something".

-->'''Brian:''' ...I'll be in the basement.
-->'''Peter:''' Doing what?
-->'''Brian:''' What do you think?!

* In a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch parodying ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' has the main male cast react this way to Gadget deciding to [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal go half-naked]].
