Playing With / Self-Abuse

Basic Trope: Masturbation is portrayed as dangerous.
  • Straight: Bob masturbates, and goes blind.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Bob accidentally touches his penis while in the shower and goes blind as a result.
    • Bob goes blind when he's washing down there in the shower or holding his penis while he pees.
    • Bob thinks about touching himself one day, and goes blind as a result
    • Bob masturbates. His eyes explode.
  • Downplayed:
    • Bob's having A Date with Rosie Palms too often damages his sex life with others or his perception of sex, but not his body.
    • Bob gradually develops impaired but still functional vision as a result of strangling the turkey.
  • Justified:
    • Bob's masturbation distracted him, triggering some sort of accident upon him.
    • Bob got semen in his eyes, and went temporarily blind as a result.
  • Inverted: Bob masturbates, and his blindness is cured.
  • Subverted: Bob masturbates, and excepts to be struck blind, but nothing happens...
  • Double Subverted: ...immediately. As a result of his euphoria, he trips, falls, and hurts himself.
  • Parodied:
    Bob Jr.: Having A Date with Rosie Palms
    Bob: Son, don't do that. You'll make yourself go blind.
    Bob Jr.: Dad, I'm over here.
  • Zig Zagged: Some men go blind from masturbation, some don't.
  • Averted:
    • Bob doesn't go blind.
    • Bob doesn't masturbate.
  • Enforced: Sex Is Evil
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Implied: Bob makes several comments at different times suggesting that he is going to masturbate. Each time, he begins to fail to notice more and more of his surroundings until he goes fully blind. This is commented on, but the true source isn't identified in a way that the audience witnesses.
  • Deconstructed:
    • Bob is not prepared to go blind so quickly, and does not have arrangements such as a seeing-eye dog in place to help him along.
    • Bob avoids masturbating as much as possible in order to retain his sight, causing him to have no experience with climaxing and making his first time awkward.

I'd give you a link back to Self-Abuse, but masturbating made me unable to edit pages.
