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
  • 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.
  • 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.

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