The description doesn't match how I thought of the phrase being used - this is a trope that honestly *surprises* me with it's definition, and Iím not sure I agree with it.

My understanding of the phrase was always more 'do it for the greater good': That it applies where a person has married without affection for political or social reasons, and the actual mechanics of marriage are distasteful therefore. It's not necessarily that they don't think women can enjoy sex - it's that they don't expect to enjoy it in this marriage, because affection and attraction were not part of the reason they married. (Or are having sex: Occasionally it gets used when the person in question is a spy or something, and expected to have sex as part of a role they need to play.)

Online sources use the current page definition as far as I can tell.

Am I the only person who started laughing at how ironic it is that some fangirls really do think of England - but would be the exact opposite of this trope?

I didn't think of it until now, but I definitely laughed!

I came here specifically to say that. I've had hetalia on the brain today.

What does the picture have to do with...anything? I don't even get it from the caption... I mean, it's England, but it took me a second to even get that—and I'm guessing, I only know of the show from this wiki.

Lie Back and Think of England Nevermind. Thought this was a different page. IDK either.

There is a Lie Back and Think of England page and a Lie Back And T Hink Of England page, both of which are the same but the latter comes out looking wrong when people write it out.

Was the former page image from Hetalia? That would explain a lot...and certainly wouldn't be this trope...
