"During the brief proliferation in the late nineties-early thousands of one-hour sci-fi story series in the style of Twilight Zone and so on, there was episode of such a show where, again, while the future allowed sex, and there were men around, all the men were sterile. This inability to conceive somehow robbed women of any and all pleasure from sex, and relegated men to being treated like not-very-useful sex toys and not mentioned otherwise, with women dismissing them contemptuously and sitting around to gossip over old sex stories of kinky naughtiness they didn't really understand. Then a fertile male shows up and suddenly all the women want him because his ability to fill them with babies makes the sex ridiculously good. One hardly knows where to start on the massive amount of sexism this heaps on BOTH sides" ^ Which show is this from? I can't find the answer anywhere online.

Shouldn't the "inversions" on this page really be on another trope, possibly called "We will have more sex in the future"? Brave New World springs to mind as an example, as does the Orb of Unearthly Delights on Beta Colony in the Vorkosigan saga (and Beta colony in general for that matter). Also Imperial Earth by Clarke had a teenage menage-a-trois. Oh, and should I mention Heinlein?
