Desperate houswife 03

Showing why "Desperate Housewives" is fetish fuel for many.

And the moral guardians worry about the explicit content on TV. Fools!


  • The Walking Dead has Daryl. His manliness and roughness is delicious. He's a true badass and He gave a fetish for Rednecks like him.
    • This troper has a weird thing for Carol Peletier, played by Melissa McBride.  Something about her short, wild, graying hair.  It's probably worth mentioning this troper is basically a male lesbian.
  • Degrassi is pretty much full of fetish fuel, but this troper in particular really... enjoys seeing Alli and Sev together. And Riley
  • Will Forte in drag on the 30 Rock episode "Argus," sometimes making out with Jenna (his character was a professional Jenna Maroney impersonator). To quote a fellow Comedy Night Done Right show, "I have the weirdest boner right now."
    • Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy kind of hits this troper in the girlparts in general, but Alec Baldwin flashing his blue eyes, saying the phrase "daddy", and flirting with the gay interior designer in the S5 opener is just GUH.
  • Montserrat Lombard as Shaz in Ashes to Ashes: English accent? Check. Skirty British police girl uniform and brunette bowl-cut? She's gotcha covered! Double life as a New Romantic clubgoer and veiled references to other pleasureable after-work activities as well? Ditto.
    • Pretty-strongly-implied bisexuality? Check.
    • This female Troper saw a teaser commercial, Alex Drake walking in a police station, in a Fur/faux-fur jacket all whored up, looking lost and confused... she got all squiggly.
    • This troper would like to call everyone's mind back to Alex's other hooker disguise, in 1.05 — it's so over-the-top that Gene has to reach over and twitch her neckline back into place. There's just something about the casual space-invasion...
      • Also, Shaz is blatantly checking her out in that scene.
    • For this troper, season three has been all about Daniel Mays's Magnificent Bastard Jim Keats. He started out as a nerdy, glasses-wearing geek with an Inspector Javert complex toward Gene (complete with excellent amounts of Foe Yay), and by the finale, careens into a spectacular Villainous Breakdown, taking about seven levels in Badass by revealing he's the Devil himself, and spends a good five episodes invading Alex's personal space tempting her to turn on Gene. The scene where he stares soulfully into Alex's eyes, stroking her face and neck and saying she can trust him? YES. PLEASE.
    • Gene Hunt and his fingerless black leather driving gloves. He can leave his gloves on...and his snake boots.
    • Episode 2.2: Gene with his shirt ripped open, a rope around his neck, and a blindfold on, looking all unnerved: the word I'm looking for here might be phwoar.
  • Between Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt, and Lee Merriwether in the 1960s Batman TV series, and Diana Rigg in the contemporaneous The Avengers on British TV, a certain item of apparel that left little to the imagination doomed millions of British and American schoolboys to become closet leather and/or rubber fetishists.
  • JadeWest. A Busty Hot chick into morbid things and occasionally wears skimpy outfits. Thank again the show is pretty kinky.
  • In the Small Wonder episode "Look Into My Eyes", Vicki learns to hypnotize by watching a professional hypnotist on TV, and makes the Lawson family do wacky things at the drop of a trigger word. The thing is that the first one Vicki does this to is the mother, who is hypnotized to act like The Vamp...
    • Small Wonder is pretty notorious for being Fetish Fuel. The central character was an almost-magical robot, Vicki, who obeyed any order, and who was constructed to look like a little girl who dressed like something from manga. The parents let the boy keep Vicki in his bedroom, because after all, she was really just a doll. A lot of people were nervous about this series, and because of this it did not get the attention it deserved for its popularity (such as a cover of TV Guide).
    • It was predated by a very grown-up-and-out Julie Newmar in the CBS show My Living Doll.
  • Speaking of Dawson Casting, this can give shows a whole new demographic, when a guy or girl is obviously older, and hotter, than the character has any right being.
  • Erik Estrada of CHiPs admitted that his costume used hidden zippers to make his pants more "fitting".
  • The Quantum Leap episode with Marilyn Monroe. Her new assistant tries to take over Marilyn's career (like in All About Eve), but some might have rooted for her after the scene where the assistant tries on one of Marilyn's fur coats, and nothing else.
    • Somebody found the hologram from that show a bit too sexy.
      • Invertedly, the idea of being a hologram that no one can see, who can get into any room, and see inside anything... Hmmm. Sounds like fun.
      • And knowing Al, it's likely he misuses this feature on every single leap.
    • And then, there sheer number of times Scott Bakula winds up crossdressing.
      • This troper had to leave the room when he turned up in that swimsuit during Miss Deep South.
      • There was the one time he leapt into a pregnant woman. That probably turned someone on.
  • Nickelodeon game shows, like Double Dare and What Would You Do? for the Wet & Messy lovers.
    • Not to mention the dunk tanks from Battle of the Network Stars.
    • And the Kids' Choice Awards, which has slime galore.
    • And of course You Can't Do That On Television.
      • This troper also remembers one episode with an (I presume) inadvertant panty flash by Moose. Course a girl named Moose itself must fit into some kind of fetish.
    • The British show Ministry of Mayhem too.
  • For the foot and tickling fetishists out there, Beakmans World actually has a foot-tickling scene. (And no, I'm not talking about all the times they tickle the rat's disembodied rat-foot.) Found here. The episode is called "Episode 77 - BREAD, BEAKMANIA & MEASUREMENT".
  • Zoobilee Zoo: It's as close as dream, as bright as the brightest blue, and definitely fuel for the furries.
  • Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger provides a double-whammy: a Bad Ass space pooch, modeled off of the Egyptian God Anubis (who is practically the Patron God of furries, at this point; Anubis, not Doggie Kruger), who is constantly belittled and treated as a puppy by his subordinates. Seriously, this troper has barely seen any sort of fan art where Doggie isn't being submissive to someone...
  • In Dave Barry Slept Here, Dave Barry speaks for those who grew up in The Fifties watching The Mickey Mouse Club:"Another important television show of the era was The Mickey Mouse Club, which made enormous cultural contributions, by which we mean: Annette Funicello. Annette had a major impact on many of us male Baby Boomers, especially the part where she came marching out wearing a T-shirt with her name printed on it, and some of the letters were considerably closer to the camera than others. If you get our drift."
  • This troper thinks that Topanga of Boy Meets World (from the later seasons, when She Is All Grown Up) did something to his young, fragile mind. Not that he minds. Haha.
    • And this troper (who is about the same age as the actress, so it's not Squicky) adored the Cloud Cuckoo Lander version of the character, and desperately wished she hadn't gotten a complete personality transplant when she got boobs. Cloud Cuckoo Landers in general are hot, so long as they don't go Ax Crazy.
    • Shawn's hair. All those times when he would shake his hair, and you could hear the girls in the studio audience shrieking...! God bless the early '90s, with all those teen idols with their shaggy hair. To this day this troper has a thing for guys with longish hair.
    • Did anyone else find Veronica Wazboysky (Shawn in drag) to be unexpectedly attractive?
  • This troper had a strange reaction when Michael Ian Black said on VH 1's I Love The80s, of Paulina Porizkova in relation to Ric Ocasek, "I wonder if she ever made out with his Adam's apple. Because that thing is protruding." Me: "Okay, I'm still trying to wrap my head around the whole I-find-Ric-Ocasek-attractive thing. But this? No, no, that's not a good idea at all! Uh...wait a minute here..." *frantic panting*
  • As you can see◊, Kimberly from 24 is a frequent source of this.
    • Dear lord, 24 is a bondage fetishists dream! Every season they have at least one person bound and gagged.
    • Season two also had a sharp increase in blonde female cast members.
  • Cutie Honey: The Live, even aside from the big-breasted ditzy high school robot girl main character, seems to have one of these every episode, including entire episodes devoted to robot maids and reform school girls.
  • Resistance leader Julia being "converted" in V, by being dressed in a pale white bodysuit, and getting brainwashed while standing by herself in a room, while lizard commander Diana watches her writhing in pain. Yeah.
    • Oh, my god, this troper thought she was the only one. And has just realized that that scene is probably singlehandly responsible for her lesyay, foeyay, mindrape and noncon fetishes.
  • Hannah Montana. And Miley Cyrus appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno a few weeks ago and stated that she absolutely loves ketchup and even demonstrated it.
  • The contest episode of Seinfeld. This originated the term "Master Of Your Domain".
    • Many, many of Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriends, including Sidra, Rachel Goldstein, and Nicki.
  • There was a sketch on The Electric Company (1970s version) where Skip Hinnant plays a rich man who gets manually dressed by his two butlers, and then given a "shower" by being sprayed with a hose. And in the very same episode, there was a sketch with all four male cast members (Luis Avalos, Skip Hinnant, Morgan Freeman, and Jim Boyd) in a tub together, just to demonstrate the phrase "rub-a-dub-dub". Wow, the 1970s really was a more innocent time...
    • Continuing with the bathing/shower fetish, there were these two sketches ([1] and [2]) both featuring a young Morgan Freeman. The latter comes off as innocent Fan Service (with a skosh of Getting Crap Past The Radar near the end). The former comes off as either very creepy or very hot, depending on what turns you on (or very funny or very weird, if you want to take a third or fourth option. There are a lot of You Tube comments on that sketch that have these (and other) reactions.
    • For the heterosexual men, there was Jennifer of The Jungle in her very short jungle skins. Who was apparently dating a gorilla.
    • To say nothing of the outfits Rita Moreno wore. Most notably her little girl outfit when she played Pandora The Brat.
    • There was a sketch where Rita Moreno, Luis Avalos, and Skip Hinnant were babies playing with blocks. Can we say infantilism? Ew.
      • A lot of sketch shows (whether or not they're educational) have adults dressed as and acting like little kids, like In Living Color's "Homie the Clown" sketches, the "Battle Boy" sketches on Fridays, or Gilda Radner's "Judy Miller Show" sketches on Saturday Night Live. Not advocating or bringing down infantilism; I'm just saying that "The Electric Company"'s example isn't anything new.
  • In addition to the copious Ho Yay between Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street, there's Ernie's song about his love for an inanimate toy— "Rubber Ducky, I'm AWFULLY Fond Of You." (It's amazing how much you can dirty up the most innocent-seeming things once you get your mind to start wandering down this road!)
  • Fairly notorious example. In the early 80's a then-new British TV company, Channel 4 (being new it had little money or experience), had an idea to make a show where children would sing pop music. Not a bad idea in and of itself. However, the result was Minipops. In this show, child performers imitated what was in the music videos of the time. They were dressed and made up like adults and then danced in the styles of music videos. British children loved the show. But it gave adults a vague feeling they were watching child pornography. It became a nationwide scandal, and ended up being taken off the air. Most of the creators now admit they made a mistake, but some still insist there was nothing wrong with the show.
  • There are probably about a dozen different kinks viewers of the 2000s Battlestar Galactica could pick up through osmosis. Including snuff.
    • Yep. This troper is... really, really glad there was no one else in the room during Cain's "razor" speech to Kendra in, well, Razor. Hot women + military uniforms + knives + serious authority issues = KABOOM.
    • In a fourth-and-a-half season episode, Starbuck sitting in an open bathroom stall talking to Baltar? The sexy, sexy opposite of a Potty Failure (Potty Victory?). Oh jeez, that smile.
    • The humanoid Cylons have multiple copies for each model. When you consider that they look like this◊, then it becomes prime fetish fuel.
    • That's without mentioning the fact that for all the active copies walking around, there are many more insensate ones lying around in tubs of goo. Including spares of the otherwise unique Final Five Cylons, such as Sam Anders.
    • How about 1970s Battlestar? All that macho cigar-chomping, the outrageously bondagealicious jumpsuits the women wore under their flight suits when they all had to be trained as replacement Viper pilots, and those pyramid-sport outfits that Apollo and Starbuck had to wear, all sweaty as hell.
      • For those into bodyfreaking, the triple-faced women singing in the alien bar in one of the very first few episodes probably is worth a look.
    • Laura Roslin. Full stop.
    • This Troper's friend SWEARS she isn't into S&M, but hearing her talk about Baltar being tortured says otherwise.
    • In "The Passage", there's a scene where Starbuck and Kat get into an argument. Nothing unusual, except that both ladies are very tense, sweaty, and stressed, and are leaning in verrry close to each other. The Les Yay potential is very obvious.
  • What about Trading Spaces and HGTV? Good-looking guys and girls(!!!!) wearing belts and competently using power tools. Although, I have to admit Norm Abrams does nothing for me....
    • This was Lampshaded by Ty Pennington - the de facto hot and weird guy - posing shirtless, with tool belts in one of the commericals.
  • The premise of Dirty Jobs is that an attractive older man with a nice baritone travels the country to writhe around in muck and mire and occasionally stick his hands into various animal orifices.
    • Correction - an attractive older man with a nice baritone and one of the most spectacular upper bodies in all of creation. * sigh*
    • It usually tends to err on the Nightmare Fuel side of things, though. This troper can never forget the part where they skinned animal heads with a French butcher.
    • He sure does clean up real nice too.
    • This troper usually likes her men young and pretty but good God, Mike Rowe is, erm, opening my mind up to new possibilities. Rugged, manly, snarky, sexy voiced and willing to get down and dirty? Yes, please!
    • Lampshaded in a viewer mail segment- a lady writes in and says how "giddy" she gets when she sees him bit by various animals and hops around in pain and could they please show that particular snake-biting again? He complies, and we get a montage.
  • Practically anything involving Sonia Manzano.
  • A (female) troper was watching Star Trek as a kid, which is probably where she acquired her strong attraction to very smart men (forget Kirk, give me Spock! Sulu was kinda cute too), which later translated into becoming a Mythbusters fan and finding Agent Mulder quite attractive (aside from the eye candy aspect).
  • It can even affect people later in life. This troper is in his mid-twenties and wasn't aware how much he liked truly Bad Ass women soldiers until watching the entirety of Farscape over the past two months.
    • This troper is as gay as the day is long and would still do Aeryn.
  • That massively D/S moment in the Life On Mars pilot. Sam goes to punch Gene, Gene turns him around holding his arm behind his back and forces him on his knees. Awesome.
    • This troper can't be the only one who felt slightly disappointed when Annie got promoted to plainclothes. Awesome character moment, but there was just something about that uniform...
    • The only reason this troper can think of that naked!Sam handcuffed to his own bed, drugged by a hooker, and used for her pleasure hasn't been mentioned is that it's too obvious. That being said? Guh.
      • Sam Tyler in general had a ton of Woobie moments. There were so many times that this troper just wanted to hold and comfort him and...make it all better.
    • Sam in a black stocking cap, nonchalantly showing a little bit of his bad boy side, did it for this troper, as does whenever he gets a bit more . . . forceful. In an early episode, while he was still almost pure woobie, he is talking to Annie, gets angry, and just gives her a flat stare and says "Shut up." Hello, dom!Sam. Please, don't leave me.
  • Pushing Daisies. Just... Pushing Daisies.
    • Sweet Jesus yes. The "shirtless Ned" scene in the season 2 opener is proof that God loves This Troper and wants her to be happy.
      • And in the interest of balance, that scene also has Chuck wearing nothing but a fairly skimpy nightdress. Of course, she then screws it up (for Ned and the viewers) by putting on a beekeeper's outfit, but it was nice while it lasted.
    • Then there's the scene in season 1 where the (very female) Chuck (and Olive, but she's not my type) dresses in a skintight leather outfit and engages in some vandalism (going "over to the dark side", as Ned puts it). Very hot.
    • Ned and Chuck not being able to touch adds a whole new level of hot to everything. I mean, imagine all the ways they can work around that... oof.
      • Not just can, either. Ned mentions that he's developed "contraptions" to deal with the non-touching thing, so it's essentially canon that they have very kinky intimate relations. Lee Pace, Ned's actor, pointed out in an interview that there's something about the sheer yearning present in their relationship that's actually kind of sexy. The phrase "erotics of abstinence" seems appropriate.
    • How about Simone Hundin, Emerson's love interest? Tall, hot, and with a very dominant personality. Mmm..
      • And how about Emerson's ex (and baby mama), played by Gina Torres? Emerson's a hot chick magnet.
    • Lee Pace dressed as a woman◊. Is it fair for him to be so damn pretty as both sexes? No. No it is not.
    • Lee Pace dressed as a priest◊. That is all.
    • Um... Ned spent an episode in prison once. I'm going to hell.
  • The one and only Elvira. The chesty dark mistress of the night had to be one of the hottest females on tv.
  • The X Files. Oh, dear God, The X-Files. You name it, they did it: brainwashing, bodyfreaking, Foe Yay, all those times Scully got tied up and/or gagged... hell, there's even a double whammy of mind control and Wet & Messy in the Black Oil episodes. And if there isn't someone out there who picked up an amputation/prosthetics fetish after "Terma," this troper will personally eat Chris Carter's hat.
    • Oh, the tattoo episode. Scully, pants half-down, bent over the back of a chair and moaning as the tattoo artist puts a needle on the small of her back... I'll be in my bunk.
    • Not to mention Scully decked out in full combat gear in the VR episode, carrying a big honkin' gun.
    • This troper wholly concurs with all of the above (especially the tattoo, dear holy God), and would like to also mention the scene in "Amor Fati" in which Mulder's dream sequence takes a turnfor thepornographic.◊ Yowza.
    • Howzabout Scully (supposedly) threatening the UFO geek in "Jose Chungs "From Outer Space""? Even the creators have named that as one of Gillian Anderson's sexiest moments.
    • This troper can trace her MFM threesome fetish back to the X-Files Rolling Stone cover
    • Krycek. Just Krycek. Leather jacketed, Russian speaking, intense staring sexually ambiguous badass? Oh, yes please.
    • And all the times both Mulder AND Scully broke out the eyeglasses.
    • And a little love for Skinner in "Zero Sum", after doing a Quid Pro Quo job for the Consortium in exchange for Scully's safety — whatever he did, it was messy, so he...had to strip down to his briefs. ...And thank GOODNESS we got to see that bit.
  • Surely This Troper can't be the only one who finds the fact that C.J. Cregg of The West Wing is approximately 6'2 (three and a half feet of which is made up of leg), and therefore towers over her male colleages, to be insanely erotic.
    • Especially the episode where she gets the job offer from Toby and stumbles into the pool, displaying quite a lot of those legs while getting out. Woof!
  • Then there's "Ms. Cosplay, Bondage and She Fu" herself, Sydney Bristow from Alias.
    • Not to mention Lena Olin in tank tops and shackles for all the prison scenes in S2.
    • Not to mention the episode "Rendezvous". Sydney Bristow in leather pants and a corset, Will Tippin being handcuffed to stuff...I'll be in my bunk.
  • An episode of Gilligans Island where Mary Ann got hit in the head and thought she was Ginger... and spent most of the episode talking and dressing like her, and being twice ten times as sexy in the process. Mistaken-identity fetish?
    • Then there was an episode where all of the characters were turned into human robots by mind-control rings. The Fetish Fuel was even Lampshaded when the evil scientist tried to take advantage of Ginger - she smacks him, showing that she was totally obedient except for sex. But that just served to make sure that everybody who didn't consider the implications thought of them no matter what. Many hypnofetishists cite this episode as one of their first experience, and it is likely surpassed only by Kaa in The Jungle Book movie for how many people credit it with their fetish.
    • There's also "The Friendly Physician", in which a mad scientist body swaps the entire cast. Most notable is Ginger, who ended up swapped with the Doctor's hulking male assistant, Igor. A number of authors from Fictionmania (a website that deals exclusively with gender swap fiction) have cited the episode as a catalyst for their fetishes.
  • The short-lived Comedy Central spoof Thats My Bush! had an episode where The Brainless Beauty Princess (yes, that's her name) mixes up "memory enhancement drugs" for "mammary enhancement drugs" and winds up with an ever-expanding rack. Her Crowning Moment of Fetish comes when she and other characters are tied up by the Austrians (long story) and she saves the day by "thinking hard" causing her breasts to grow so fast, they burst the ropes right off her chest. To the swelling (pun intended) tune of "Ride of the Valkyries". Magnificent. And then she does the "I'm Smart dance". (And in the closing scene, she says she's going off the drugs because "all this thinking makes my back hurt", while stretching suggestively. Y'know, that hands-on-small-of-back stretch emphasises what's already prominent.)
    • Laura Bush in real life? Nausea Fuel to the nth degree. The chick who played her on the show? Definite Fetish Fuel. Especially the scene in the pilot where she flashes a room full of people. I don't know what she was wearing under that blur, but it definitely looked like she was really naked.
  • Every series that involves invisibility. I'm sure the idea that there's an Invisible Man or Invisible Woman out there watching people unseen is fetish for some (to be one, or to be seen by one) and Nightmare Fuel to others.
  • Lynda Carter's slow motion Gainaxing in (and out of) her bustier on Wonder Woman. In her satin tights, fighting for our rights. Not to mention the Magic Lasso. And the clothes-shedding spin-transformations.
    • The magic lasso in the comics (before Crisis On Infinite Earths) was even wilder — its captive had to obey ANY command given by the holder of the rope. TV actually dialed it back.
  • An episode of Night Court had Markie Post tied up, hands behind back, trying to escape by rubbing the ropes against a metal pole. Lampshaded by the guy who was with her; when she said it "wasn't working", he disagreed.
  • The Harry Potter sketch on Saturday Night Live, the one with Lindsey Lohan. Hits the whole checklist: schoolgirl uniform, Boooooobs, Dawson Casting Lolicon, and the fact that Lohan's character had no idea that she had this magic happening.
    • Speaking of fetishes on SNL, there are a lot of sketches with cross-dressing (mostly men, but there have been some female cast members who have played male characters) and Ho Yay and (at times) Les Yay action, the former of which is less Fetish Fuel and more like the end result of hiring more men than women in a sketch show cast. Other sketch shows have done it too (particulary In Living Color, with those gay male film critics in bondage gear, The Kids in the Hall, and Logo's The Big Gay Sketch Show), but SNL is a tad more excessive.
    • The mid-to-late 1980s episodes on SNL had Fetish Fuel in the form of Victoria Jackson — a blond, slightly chubby female cast member with a shy, childlike voice and the ability to bend herself backwards and do handstands — often on Dennis Miller's Weekend Update desk in a skirt and high heels. This was lampshaded by the suggestive comments by Miller such as "You know, if we were married, I'd never leave the apartment" (after seeing her bend backwards while reciting a poem called "The Life of a Table") or "Suddenly, I'm sitting here with a candy cane" (after Victoria essentially gave him a lap dance on the Weekend Update desk while dressed as Santa Claus's wife on a Christmas episode in 1989 hosted by Andie MacDowell).
    • There were two S&M-based sketches on SNL's So Bad Its Horrible sixth season (whether or not it's Fetish Fuel is up to the viewers): one about a dominatrix (Denny Dillon) giving a weather report with a man (Charles Rocket) chained sideways to the map, all the while throwing rocks at him, spritzing him with water, lining whipped cream on his body, and whipping him with a cat-o'-nine-tales; the other is a talk show parody called "Parent and Child" where a pair of bondage freaks (played by Ann Risley and Joe Piscopo) have a heart-to-heart talk with their son (played by Gilbert Gottfried — yes, the same one who voices the parrot on the Disney version of "Aladdin") about what they do in the bedroom.
    • This troper only recently began following SNL, and is surprised that she found Fetish Fuel from it so quickly: Weekend Update's City Correspondent, Stefon (Bill Hader). Yes, he is extraordinarily flamboyant, but there's something about the urgency in his voice and his constant nervous hand movements... yes, in fact, I believe Stefon has awakened a fetish in me for nervous tics and restlessness. Not to mention that Bill Hader is arguably most attractive when trying to hold back genuine laughter and that in the episode I saw, he shares a kiss with the adorable Seth Meyers.
  • The episode in That70s Show when Donna is sent to Catholic school as a punishment. Her boyfriend Eric is indignant on her behalf, until he sees the uniform.
    Eric: So they make you wear those long white socks every day?Donna: (scowls)Eric: (aside) ... YES!Sweaty-palmed viewer: (aside) ... YES!
    • How about Donna in general? There was an episode where she pinned Eric down. Did I say episode? Oh, right, it happens like ALL THE TIME. Guh.
    • There's something about Fez, too. I believe the quote, although referring to his kissing, was "You know that weird thing he does with his tongue when he rolls his r's?" Now imagine that tongue somewhere else . . .
  • I Dream Of Jeannie; let's see, a beautiful woman in a harem outfit who wants to grant your "every wish"? Check. As if that weren't enough, she can look like anyone, make you look like anyone, transport you to any place or time, can and frequently does make herself really small or make you really small, and later starts dressing in mini-skirts.
    • Oh, and she has a predatory evil twin sister with the same powers.
  • Queen Elizabeth from Blackadder series 2. She's completely insane, has the temperament of a young child, and the power of life and death over everyone around her. And she's a redhead.
    • This troper has a thing for historical clothing, and Queenie does wear a rather fabulous dress...
  • Scrubs: A gum-chewing, impossibly-sexy-nurse-outfit-clad Elliot slowly licking her way up the exposed chest of a prone and bound Turk, until... I'll be in my bunk.
    • That same episode also had J.D. desperately needing to pee, and when relieving himself on the lawn has the most wonderful expression of relief. (It's my kink and I'll get turned on if I want to!). And then he realizes that he's in the Janitor's lawn. Watching him take a shower. And he admits it and there is much talk of seeing each others penises. This troper realllly likes this episode.
    • Also, there is a lot of spanking going on in this show. JD spanking Turk. Turk spanking JD. Turk spanking Elliot. Elliot spanking JD. Various characters spanking themselves. You name it. In fact, the only main character who hasn't been a spanker or a spankee is The Janitor.
      • The Janitor probably has his own fetishists.
      • Although stretching the term 'spank' a little, JD does pat the Janitor's butt in "My Moment of Un-Truth". He doesn't seem to mind.
    • Not to mention that one episode where Eliot is taped to a wall with a speech bubble saying "Hi! I'm a whore."
      • That episode is "My Big Bird". And, what's also great about Elliot taped to the wall, is she was barefoot.
    • Then there is that one fantasy where everyone is in diapers and a closeup of J.D. ,erm, using his.
    • What about that slow-motion Power Walk with Elliot's new haircut? And the way she licks her lips at the end...
    • Jordan. Tough, scary, domineering, hot, and her relationship with Cox is so close to abusive sometimes. That kiss scene where she's pressed against a wall and then he spins her around to face him... ahhh.
    • Doug Murphy and his lollipops. Everything about him actually does it for this troper, who has a thing for nervous, nerdy guys.
  • HOW HAS NO ONE MENTIONED CASTLE YET? There's Nathan Fillion flirting with everyone. A hot, high-heel-wearing detective who can put on a Russian accent, hide a badge anywhere, and knows all of the places in New York which sell custom BDSM toys. A hot, black sassy coroner who talks about her food sex preferences.
    • Ryan and Esposito getting 'questioned' in "Knockdown". The Bromance put to the test with drenched, clingy clothes and a strangling rope.
    • Castle having bed-breaking, room-shaking, makes-the-photos-on-the-walls-fall-down sex with his ex-wife. And this session doesn't even make their "top 10" list!
  • There is an episode of The Daily Show where Stephen Colbert shows himself capable of deepthroating a banana. Nothing suggestive about that, really.
    • This troper got curious and tried it (no, with a banana) and would like to point out that it is not nearly as easy as it looks. He's been practicing.
    • AN EPISODE??? Stewart and Colbert routinely bite pens, stick fingers in their mouths, remove clothing, and get splattered with white goo (whipped cream from coffee, and fire extinguisher). Not to mention copious amounts of HO-YAY banter.
    • That episode where Brian Williams tells Jon to swallow really forcefully.
    • The Word segment where Stephen handcuffs himself to his desk to resist Obama's siren song of bipartisanship... then starts struggling against his bonds...
    • The section of this CT Phone Home clip where Jon Stewart sneaks up from behind on John Oliver, interrogating him about the story, and John Oliver is all terrified and the whole thing is silly and this troper doesn't even HAVE a non-con fetish but guh.
    • Stephen is just kind of prone to fetish fuel in general. Semi-intentionally, in most cases.
  • This troper has a vendetta against Claudia Black, because of Farscape. All my dirty thoughts redirected for months afterward to the idea of scarily competent female soldiers who are definite take-charge types. This is to say nothing of what Farscape doubtless does for other people with other fetishes. One reviewer described the show as one American man's descent through the Australian bondage scene...
    • Then just wait until you see Black's leather outfit in Stargate SG-1. Also, she has two pigtails at times.
      • SOLD!
    • Now imagine this: there's that twinning device. Imagine multiple Claudia Blacks, multiple Chianas, multiple Zhaans...
  • Blakes Seven has a lot of people in tight leather.
  • One episode of The MiddleMan features Wendy Watson going undercover in a Hooters-esque, pirate-themed restaurant, complete with a skimpy pirate outfit that really stretches things for a "family friendly" show.
    • Later Dubby is featured in:
      • An Emma Peel style leather outfit
      • A Honey Rider style bathing suit
      • Her second, decidedly sexier, Middle Man uniform
      • Stripped down to her underwear, and then almost topless, in order to give her boss a Silkwood Shower
    • MM himself. With the Boy-Scout demeanor, Gosh Dang It To Heck vocabulary, and really, really buff body? Also, his Alt Verse counterpart, the PlisskenMan, who has an eyepatch, Perma Stubble, and wears leather chaps. Not to mention whatever he and Alt Verse Ida were getting up to . . .
  • I Love Lucy: Several videos on You Tube interpret Ricky's spanking Lucy as kinky rather than Domestic Abuse.
  • Cleopatra 2525 clearly wanted to build its fanbase on this. Badass women in Stripperiffic outfits all the time, with a friendly robot that will strip upon request, using a bunch of big guns to fight against evil robots, several episodes having very sexed-up-in-a-scifi-way nightclubs ["Once you go cyborg, you never go back"] a characters drink being spiked with a powerful Aphrodisiac in one episode, and did I mention the titular character was a stripper?
  • Natalie seems strongly turned on by the sight of Monk in a uniform in "Mr. Monk Goes to the Bank."
    • Natalie's new look and outfits as the lotto girl has "fetish" written all over it.
  • The example that made this troper question her sexual orientation, her sanity, and whether she deserves to live: the scene in the first episode of Wire in the Blood in which the main male character gets kidnapped by the bad guy, stripped naked, and hung by his wrists from the ceiling. Something about his desperate, visible struggle not to break, and the way the camera dwells on the straining muscles in his back and shoulders...
  • Thanks to excessive exposure to all forms of Star Trek at an early age, this troper has developed a strange combination-fetish for British accents(Captain Picard), really smart engineer guys (Miles O'Brien and Trip Tucker) and fellows of dashing derring-do (Commander Riker) that has carried on to all the other shows she likes, (Wesley and Spike in BtVS, Daniel Jackson in Stargate SG 1, the Tenth Doctor) Also due to Stargate exposure, she now finds Big Warrior Race Guys (Ronon and Teal'c...yum..where was I?) to be very, very hot. Basically, blame it on science fiction (I mean, look how long the fetish lists for Doctor Who and Star Trek are..)
  • The More Bad News episode of The Comic Strip Presents... had Colin screaming in terror and begging Vim not to hurt him, while Vim was lying on top of him and punching his face in...
    • That episode also had a wigged, made-up and pretty thoroughly feminised Colin pouring blood over his face. Considering this troper has been nurturing a crush on the actor for years, she's just discovered where her blood kink came from.
  • This troper is sure Dark Angel has plenty, but all she can really focus on right now is the scene in "Proof of Purchase" where Alec is in a suspended cage and yeah... you'll find her in her bunk.
    • Oh, Dark Angel has it in spades. One smart-mouthed, leather-clad Action Girl who could kick your ass without breaking a sweat, and don't forget she's Jessica freaking Alba.
    • Then there's Logan for the Nerds Are Sexy brigade, plus his exoskeleton in season 2 must be linked to some body-modification fetish, which we also see in the Steelheads and later Cyborg!Zack.
      • This troper has a HUGE thing for guys in wheelchairs, and along with a taste for angst, scruffiness, and glasses.... ...mmmm... she wanted to jump that boy all first season. She was actually pissed off when he thought he was going to be able to walk again, and inwardly squeed with delight when he was back in the chair. It probably makes her a very bad person.
    • Alec doesn't even need to do anything to be Fetish Fuel, being the bishiest guy in the West, to the point where even Original "Don't forget I'm a lesbian" Cindy can't deny his prettiness, but seeing him kicking ass X5-style pushed this Troper over the edge.
    • Don't forget: there's two of him.
    • Mia hypnotizing Logan and Alec into giving each other a tight hug.
    • This troper has an extremely odd Women-In-Hospital fetish so the episode "Harbor Lights" was just downright high-octane unleaded fetish fuel.
    • No one's going to mention Max going into heat? Most fandoms find a reason to make that happen, this show has it two to three times a year.
      • Hell, Max and the other X5s having feline DNA. Maybe they don't look it, but that's a whole generation of cat boys and girls.
      • As of season two, when Max pretty much sees Alec every day, can you just think of what would happen if she went into heat with him around? Male cats are always in heat (which would explain the Handsome Lech quality) like all male mammals... just sort of makes you wonder if he'd pick up on the pheromones or whatever.
    • Is it just This Troper that thought Alec and Max being breeding partners was hot?
      • I think it's something about de-sexualizing sex. Taking all the attraction out and just having two people putting tab a into slot b... don't judge me.
      • Personally, I'm a believer in Max and Logan's love, but half the scenes between Max and Alec are so hot, I just want them to jump each other. Just once. Especially when they're in that closet for an hour in Borrowed Time. And Alec saying "I've been stuck in this closet for over an hour to facilitate you having sex!" Don't even know why that's hot, but who questions fetishes?
    • We're not forgetting Alec's Stoic Spectacles or the time he put on a Cockney accent, are we?
    • Some of the scenes in the novels seemed designed to be Fetish Fuel if they were televised. Such as White cutting Alec while he's strapped to a hospital bed (er, if you're into that kind of thing) and Alec doing push-ups while the team waits for the right time to attack the Familiar stronghold.
  • Jekyll. From The Chair in the pilot (with poor, helpless, about-to-change Tom shackled to it) to the big giant coffin-like thing Klein&Utterson sticks Tom/Hyde into to "settle" him, this show loves yanking viewers' fetish chains.
    • There's also the scene in episode two where Katherine is trapped alone and completely unarmed in an unfamiliar house during a blackout . . . with Hyde. Between Hyde's singsonging and promising to "eat" her, this troper was in desperate need of a cold shower.
    • Not to mention Hyde's penchant for calling Tom "Daddy". This troper is sure she's developed an Electra complex from that running bit.
    • And then there's the scene where Jackman's wife knocks Hyde out, shackles him to a wall, and interrogates him while... let's just say this troper was really not sure if those chains were gonna hold. (Not to mention all the lingering, fetish-y shots of Gina Bellman's legs and feet in high heels during that same scene.)
      • "Are you threatening me?" "Warning you."
  • You're kidding me, nobody's brought up Lost yet? Handcuffs, binding and/or gagging, cages, nets, torture (much of it carried out by the extremely yummy Sayid), and lots of pretty people getting wet...
    • And occasionally bloody. Seeing Sawyer tied up to that tree (in a jungle of mystery) all bloody and defeated was a thing of dirty bad wrong beauty.
    • Locke seems to enjoy doing this as well. This troper is re-watching season one in a class, and the episode where he knocks Boone out, ties him up, and leaves him inthe woods turned me on big time. I must look for some kinky fanfic now
      • How about the scene where Sawyer's bullet wound has been infected and Kate basically has to seduce him into taking the pills? I hope they didn't teach you that in med school, Jack...
    • Benjamin Linus just hits all of this troper's fetish buttons... the dark intelligence, the manipulative personality, the sarcastic commentary, the voice... Even that bug-eyed stare of his can be a turn-on.
    • I swear somebody on the team has a birth and/or pregnancy fetish. Seriously, look at how many birth scenes there have been on the show! Hell, pregnancy was a main plot-point during the third season.
      • Not to mention the absurd size of Claire's belly. "Preg" anyone?
    • Kate. Juliet. Cuffs. Mud. 'Nuff said.
    • From the season six premiere: "Nice to see you out of chains, Richard." Kinky.
    • No one's mentioned Daniel Faraday yet? He's a skinny geek with a tie. And he's a genius. This Troper also has a weird fetish about necks... And Faraday happens to have a very nice one.
    • This troper had a major crush on Alex Rousseau. Don't tell Ben.
    • Season six Claire and Kate anyone? The occasional death glare from Claire, the hand-holding, Kate's statements that she came back to the island for Claire and her alone? I'm sure many people out there are hoping they get off the island and raise Aaron together.
    • The way Sawyer pins Ana Lucia down with one hand holding both of hers and his other hand on her hip while she struggles under him... *imagination runs wild.* The times that Sawyer and Kate tackle/pin each other are also very yummy and invoke interesting imaginings.
  • Prison Break. Michael and Mahone's cagematch. And the glasses. Oh, boy, if this troper didn't have a total glasses fetish already. The glasses started an animated LJ icon with the phrase "Girls totally make passes at guys in glasses."
    • There's a scene in the latest season where Gretchen meets up with Sara and offers her five minutes with a whip, for payback for something similar she did to Sara in an earlier season. The fact that Gretchen already has a few scars doesn't actually help.
    • How about all those scenes in the first season when there were gratuitous shots of Michael's tattoos? Tattoos don't usually do it for this troper, but those did.
  • The Mighty Boosh
    • That scene in "The Fountain of Youth", with that effing feather...
    • How about "The Call of the Yeti", in which the boys are Brainwashed by, er, Yeti and narrowly escape becoming sex slaves?
    • Not to mention Vince's wardrobe of latex jumpsuits and high heeled boots.
    • In the 2008 live show, aside from Howard in a loincloth of sorts, Vince appears in a gold spandex miniskirt and heels, before all the male Boosh team perform the encore in short, flowery cotton dresses, rocking out whilst Vince thrashes about on stage in the aforementioned heels. Guess what this Troper's now fully-fledged fetish is...
    • Vince Noir is high octane fetish fuel: the self-proclaimed confuser has dropped who knows how many Bridgets and is a walking Ho Yay magnet. Also, in "The Chokes" he rides Bob Fossil like a pony.
    • This troper's got it bad for Saboo. Richard Ayoade in eyeliner and a Nice Hat ... sigh.
    • How has no one mentioned the kiss yet?
      • Barrat and Fielding themselves often kid about their character's "relationship".
    • The Hitcher proclaims his new fetish in "The Mighty Boosh Live", while holding Howard's and Vince's severed heads... not the one anyone in real life would want, mind you (or addmit to).
  • So there's this one episode of Hustle where — for totally plot-related reasons! — Danny winds up bent over a desk with a group of people taking turns applying a rattan cane to his backside. One of whom is Stacie. With whom he's been obsessed for pretty much the entire run of the series. Who is played by the unbelievably gorgeous Jaime Murray, wearing something not a million miles away from naughty-librarian-land.
    • You seem to be forgetting the episode where Albert tricks Danny and Mickey into appearing in the middle of London completely starkers. Evidently Stacie was enjoying it too, she holds a magnifying glass up to one of the pics!
  • This troper attributes her leather jacket and bad boy fetish to a childhood crush on Fonzie. It would explain a lot.
  • This troper is fairly certain that the titular character from Dexter gave her knife, plastic-wrap bondage, and blood fetishes. All the shirtless scenes in season two didn't help... or did they?
    • This troper must agree that there is something downright sexy about Dexter and she can't pinpoint what it is exactly. Is it the convincing facade of normality? The handsome face? His Heroic Sociopath-ness? Of course, it isn't the first time this troper has had a thing for a serial killer.
      • You can keep him. This Troper wants his brother. (And, um, his foster sister, but at least the constant fixation on Deb isn't something that said Troper creeps herself out with? Whereas, actually, she can blame that whole show on the fact that she's a lot more interested in blood now, and on helping her figure out that she has a thing for serial killers with OCD-like behavior, and um it's really awkward that she watches it with her dad, let's just say.)
    • Nngh, damnit, now I really want to watch this series.
    • The manipulative, sultry, batshit insane Lila made the second season at least twice as enjoyable to watch, and her incredibly passionate fucking of Dexter (both figuratively and literally) certainly didn't hurt matters. Rather unfortunate Dexter killed her and chose Rita instead.
    • The opening credits are easily the sexiest thing this troper has seen on television.
      • "Wow, that's a really menacing way to tie your shoes and oh my god look at those arms..."
  • La Femme Nikita tended to feature a lot of potential fetish fuel. In addition to the general "obey or die" premise, plenty of leather clothing, and regular appearance of people in chains, one has to call out the episode where Nikita is sent to an underground fight club where attractive women are forced into fancy dresses, then made to fight each other to the death, in the water, while wearing exploding chokers, for the entertainment of watching men, who get to pay money to have sex with the survivors.
  • There was an episode of Buck Rogers where Wilma gets kidnapped by a sort of space vampire. This troper remembers being very turned on in the scene where he approaches her bare neck with his fingers extended. Actually, just any scene in the series with Erin Gray in that shiny skintight outfit.
    • There's also Shgoratchx! Seven dwarf-like aliens board the ship and, even on a ship with humans, robots and a half-human half-bird, the life form that fascinates them the most is Wilma Derring in paticular her "Bumps" because the females of their species don't have those. (They aparantly have a bee/ant like society, and the seven paticular dwarfs in that episode were all hatched from seven eggs in one big shell) They also have powers which they refer to as "On Think" and "Off Think". At one point they corner in a room and decide to "Examine" her, which of course requires getting that belt and the buttons of that dress out of the way. Off think Off Think Off think Off Think Off think Off Think Off think Off Think Off think Off Think...
      • Anyway, what I liked about that scene was not only were her clothes comeing off (technically you don't actually see that much skin even by that paticular TV show's standards) but that she was being stripped, and she didn't want to be stripped but it was still happening. That was probably what started my entire dominance/hypno/force/slave/obedience range of fetishes.
  • There are a lot of reasons why "The One after the Superbowl" is This Troper's favourite Friends episode, but these two in particular stand out (fuel starts at about 0:58).
    • Chandler in handcuffs. Half naked. Being manhandled by an older woman, then Rachel. Full stop. There's a reason this troper has re-watched "The One With The Cuffs" at least three times as often than any other Friends episode.
  • Science Channel's Beyond Tomorrow has Anna Choy, an Asian woman with an Australian Accent. Two great things, even better together. And she's a geek. Nice...
    • You'd have a constant orgasm at my highschool. Melbourne is actually pretty multi-cultural and most of the 2nd or 3rd generation Australians speak with Australian accents, includeing quite a few Asians.
  • One Way Out is a must-watch for BDSM fans; since it focuses on an escape artist, you can imagine the kind of things that happen.
  • In the first episode of In Plain Sight, Mary's witness is a skinny, pigtailed, doe-eyed, snarky young woman who wants bigger boobs. Oh, and she's Russian. Or close enough, anyway.
    • In the episode of "In Plain Sight" titled "Trojan Horst," when Marshall gets shot in the chest and they take shelter in the ruined house, when he's just lying there, completely shot, I defy any girl to watch that scene and not find him hot.
    • You got to understand, Marshall is a mild-mannered smart arse with a massive general knowledge database. He is not hot, normally.
  • Merlin. Bondage. So far, almost every character has been locked up in that dungeon, and Morgana was even chained up.
    • Also, the stocks. Stocks!porn is practically a genre of fic in itself in the Merlin fandom...
    • There are whole episodes of Merlin that are basically canon hurt/comfort. The Poisoned Chalice and Le Mort D'Arthur stand out.
      • On the subject of hurt/comfort porn, someone on the crew obviously realised that Colin Morgan looks pretty when he cries. So they make sure that he does. Regularly.
    • There's also the scene in Le Mort D'Arthur where Uther is carrying the dying Arthur across the courtyard and the camera pans slowly and lovingly up Tony Head's leather-clad legs... Grr-owl! There should be an erotic equivalent of Narm, for scenes that are supposed to be heart-rending but blow it with distracting imagery!
    • Am I the only one who thinks Merlin looks insanely sexy in chain mail?
      • Merlin's regular costume is the best. Colin Morgan in his triangular scarf thing -- you can't beat that.
    • Coma and/ magical sleep. Even though magical sleep isn't real, there's no way in hell Morgana and Arthur (the most frequent and hot violators) can look that good. Even with Gwen or Merlin 'attending' them.
  • This is wrong in so many ways, but a particular Full House has Jesse and Kimmy trapped in the storage closet during the Smash Club opening night. Jesse realizes he can escape through an air vent and can't get all the way in, and with his legs dangling he says "Kimmy, I never thought I'd say this, but... grab the tush and push!" Kimmy smiles wickedly and rubs her hands with glee. Something about the legs dangling helplessly AND the odd duck girl getting to molest an absurdly attractive older man to his chagrin... this is Full House for god's sake, I should NOT be getting turned on by anything in it!
  • Andromeda . First and foremost, we have Tyr Anasazi, who wears naught but chain mail, has epic hair, and angsts all the time (but not in the annoying way). Then there's Harper, the loveable, hot nerd. There's Beka, whose outfits sometimes looks better suited to a dominatrix, and there's Trance, who's adorable, gorgeous and mysterious all at once. And finally, we have Rommie--a hot, sentient space ship? Sci-fi fan's dream.
    • Hmmm, Tyr Anasazi. When I started dating a man who wore chainmail shirts on a regular basis I rewatched Andromeda and realised where the sheer animal reaction I had to it had come from. And after he's run around in it I know from experience that Tyr would stink of metal and musky musky man sweat. Rrrrowr. Then I watched Stargate Atlantis and they had Ronin... who looks and dresses like a slightly younger Tyr. Anyone else deperately planning crossover slash fiction? Who'd you reckon would be the bottom?
    • Dylan's hair is nice and fluffy. *shrug* Hair matters to me.
    • So am I the only one who thinks Trance was way better when she was cute and pink rather than sexy and gold?
      • You're not alone.
      • Take your pick: Trance #1, with her childlike enthusiasm, halter tops, purple-skin and prehensile tail; Trance #2, with a fitted black wardrobe, blonde hair and luscious lips; or Trance #3, with her mysterious demeanor, golden skin, red dreadlocks and leather corsets.
  • Saban's other show such as Masked Rider, Beetleborgs and Mystic Knights Of Tir Na Nog have their share of fetish inducing female characters: Masked Rider has Count Dregon's assistant Nefaria, Beetleborgs had Jara in season 1 and Horribelle in season 2, and Mystic Knights Of Tir Na Nog had Maive- the sorceress (although Deidre did look pretty hot in her armour)
  • Being Human: If the expression on his girlfriend's face is anything to go by, sex with a pre-transformation George is one of the most intense experiences you can have.
    • Mitchell. Sweet Jesus, Mitchell. Dark, brooding,sexy Irish vampire? Gah.
  • How I Met Your Mother. Barney's suits. That is all. (No, I tell a lie— in one episode, a throwaway joke indicates that he sleeps in the pyjama version of a suit, so that he'll look sharp and sexy at all times. God, they weren't kidding.)
    • There's also the Halloween episode where he dresses as one of the guys from "Hot Shots", and urges Ted to dress as the other. And yes, he wears those aviator glasses. Also in that episode, Marshal and Lily as Sonny and Cher. Crossdressing.
      • He was quoting 'Top Gun', not 'Hot Shots'.
    • Flashback!Gothy!Lily. That is all.
    • Flashback!Barney from his hippy college days, sporting scruffy facial hair, a ponytail and poncho.
    • The Christmas episode when Barney gets sick and Robin briefly takes care of him. He acts like a little kid, and Robin is his Mom.
    • There is also the episode where Barney briefly dresses as a woman to try and pick up a lesbian...
    • Alyson Hannigan in a...wait for it... suit. And if you're into Barney's suits in general, that entire musical sequence. Which was in the same episode that Lily admitted to imagining the hot bartender while in bed with Marshall the night before.
  • This troper is rather... fond of the "Two Guys In A Dungeon" sketch on Important Things With Demitri Martin. He's half naked, chained to the wall with another guy, all dirty and sweat
  • The revival of the British Gladiators swapped the colourful lycra for black-and-white scraps of spandex designed to look like leather.
  • What about the original American Gladiators? This troper attributes his lifelong thing for Hot Amazons to that show. Ah, Diamond...
  • Fringe. "Bad Dreams". The entire scene with Olivia and the stripper hits at least six different fetishes.
    • Good gods yes. Just the moment when "she" is heading towards the club, and this vaguely predatory look enters her face and walk... Oh my yes. There's something to be said for Olivia in general, as well, with the whole determined, commanding Action Girl thing, who never relents when she's focused on what she's after... This troper would not mind being her quarry of an evening.
    • Episode Two starts off with a pretty intense, painful belly expansion.
    • The scene in "What Lies Below" where Peter, under the control of a virus, has a mini-fight with Olivia. When he slammed her against the wall this troper's first thought was "HOT", followed immediately by "WTF is 'wrong' with you?" And then she watched it again.
    • All the 50s fashion in "Brown Betty". Anna Torv is already pretty, but with that hair, and makeup, and the suit...yow.
  • "Well I object to all the sex on the telly. I mean, I keep falling off!"
    • Speaking of which, Terry Jones as the nude organist. Shut up.
    • And John Cleese in the Nazi uniform...Rawr...
  • He's slightly too male for my tastes, but Guy of Gisborne (played by Richard Armitage) in Robin Hood is very popular among some sections of the population. In the latest storyline, he gets discredited, arrested and thrown in the dungeon. You can see where I'm going there...
    • On the same show...Allan-a-Dale. There was a female on that writing staff who administered to every fan-girly whim, what with Allan getting shirtless, tied up and tortured on many, many occasions. A big thank you to that female.
      • Or hey, what am I saying? It could just have easily been male.
      • There's a first season episode where the Sheriff is questioning Guy and swats him with a broken arrow, just once. A dysfunctional relationship that includes black leather, dominance (even if it is platonic) and spanking? Squee.
  • The Closer: Brenda Johnson. Is it her accent? Her looks? Her fondness for sweets? Her age? Her habit of being so...forceful in the interrogation room?
    • One episode had the team trying to figure out how a guy in jail was calling for hits during his visits from his girlfriend. The solution involved Brenda breathing on the glass.
    • Another case involved a rather convincing female impersonator.
    • Laura Roslin guest-starred, and acted as The Rival to Brenda, both working together on a case (make that three cases). Two attractive older women, trying to get the upper hand over each other, who fight crime. Oh, and Mary McDonnell wore Roslin's Sexy Nerd Glasses throughout the epsode. Mercy.
      • Season Five episode "Strike Three" ends with Johnson and Raydor in full police dress uniform. YOWZA doesn't even begin to cover it.
    • Invoked in a TNT commercial bumper for the show:Woman (in Brenda-like southern accent): Honey, I would really appreciate it if you could break me off a piece of that Kit-Kat. You know how much I love chocolate. Now give me that or I'm gonna handcuff you.Man: I love it when you talk Brenda.
  • Derren Brown. Just... Derren Brown. This troper has heard more than one person refer to him as "The Master in real life."
    • Speaking of Derren Brown: in one of his stage shows, Something Wicked This Way Comes, he hammers a solid nail up his nose, puts a plastic bag over his head, lies on a bed of broken glass and asks an audience member to slap him (not all at once). Hello, all sorts of interesting new fetishes.
  • Burn Notice — specifically, Fiona. One hundred ten pounds of leggy, wiry, scantily-clad flirting-with-everything ex-IRA weapons expert with a disturbing ordnance fetish. Yes plz.
    • And she hangs out with hot men who are just as dangerous. And not above "being dominated" (yes, Michael actually called it that once) for a cover. Anyone else get squiggly feelings in that "reverse interrogation" scene? Tied to a chair with Sam beating him up?
    • This troper gets squiggly feelings any time Sam's around. With the Perma Stubble and the Crouching Moron Hidden Badass and that thing he does with his lips around the rim of a beer bottle and the fact that it's Bruce Motherfucking Campbell. Getting all Ho Yay-y with the delicious Jeffrey Donovan? This troper will, in fact, be in her bunk.
      • And what does he do for those women?
    • "The Hunter" opens with Fi and Mike practicing hand-to-hand. Mike is wearing sweats and a wifebeater, Fi in a tank top and shorts. Both of them are all...sweaty.
      • They later have a sparring match which turns into a real fight (on Fi's side), which turns into them making love. Damn.
    • Similarly, in "The Good Soldier" Michael plays a Woobieish alcoholic to get manipulated, Blackmailed, and dominated by a kidnapper. Really, anyone who's a fan of the Mind Game Ship will find something interesting in most episodes.
    • "A Dark Road" opens with Mike and Fi in something like a Hurt Comfort Fic. Fi being Fi, she punches Michael, just because she's in pain.
    • Also, Gilroy hitting on Mike. No, not the usual Faux Yay, he seems to be actually hitting on Michael.
      • They have a "date" in a hot tub.
    • Sam and Fi undercover as a con man and a rich mark, trying to out-con a British Casanova type who has been stealing women's money and then killing them. Lots of hands all over each other, flirting to keep their cover. They're not having any luck, and Fiona decides that shooting him is the best plan. But they're in a crowded club and they need him alive to get their client's money back. Sam throws her against a wall and pins her there to make sure she doesn't hurt the mark; Fiona breaks free and threatens to shoot Sam if they don't take the guy down.
  • Despite it being a kids show Knightmare managed to have Action Girls Velda and Gundrada chained to walls, tied up on tables and put in stocks, not to mention Gundrada bordering on Hot Amazon.
    • Several times in Knightmare characters of both genders wind up tied up, chained to a wall or put in stocks, especially the latter. It's also featured a couple of Hot Amazons.
  • The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody had a few episodes during it's second and third seasons where Ashley Tisdale and Brenda Song were prancing around in schoolgirl outfits. There was even one where they got trapped in a closet, and started wrestling each other for a breath mint. While wearing said outfits.
    • The show is about twins. Blond, blue-eyed twins. Too bad they are underage. Well, it's not too hard to imagine their older versions. Doing stuff... together.
    • There's also it's spinoff which in one episode has London and Bailey dressing up as showgirls. To quote one of the twins "Good plan!"
      • Even better, and fetishier, in that same episode was the reveal that their teacher, Miss Tutweiller, performed as a showgirl.
    • Suite Life On Deck also has an episode where Bailey is dressed up like a cow... and Zach asks her for some milk...
  • If the ass in the Title Sequence of the original De Grassi High doesn't turn you on, the one in Degrassi; The Next Generation will (unless you don't like girl's butts at all)
  • The Tribe, best summed up as "Mad Max 90210" which means a bunch of hot (mostly) adolescents in Desert Punk regalia.
    • Ebony. Just... Ebony.
  • Chuck has Sarah's Weinerlicious outfit, as well as the enormous number of cat fights that she gets into, the most notable of which has her fighting Nicole Ritchie in a locker room shower. While they're both wearing prom dresses.
    • It also has mostly shirtless appearances from Captain Awesome, and those shorts! Plus we also get a handcuffed, gagged John Casey. In his shamrock boxers.
    • This troper reckons the outfit Sarah was wearing during Chuck's dream in Chuck Vs. The Third Dimension was fetish fuel at its purest.
    • Casey, bound to a chair, barely batting an eyelash as he gets a tooth yanked out. While that doesn't sound so much like Fetish Fuel, I'll put it in a nutshell: Casey being dominated by Chuck. Violently.
    • What about Chuck wearing glasses in "Chuck Versus the Final Exam"?
  • This troper usually likes small, skinny boys. So why is she inappropriately enjoying watching Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food stuffing his adorably chubby self? I don't think I have a feeder fetish exactly, it might just be his sheer enthusiasm for taking on the food challenges, but there is something about that man that makes me want to snuggle with him while consuming mass quantities of junk food.
  • This troper and his ex-girlfriend had quite a thing for shoving each other up against walls when making out. So when Naomi slammed Emily into the lockers in Skins...
    • Katie and Emily. Redheaded British identical twin schoolgirls.
  • Saved By The Bell: One episode involved Zach hiding a bug in Jesse's room, where the girls are having a slumber party, to get info on Kelly. He accidentally tips the girls off, and then they start talking about Kelly's Ax Crazy alternate personality. The next day, the girls conspire to get Kelly locked in a classroom with Zach, bat in hand, slowly advancing on him... This troper, watched as a kid, and recalls very confused feelings.
  • This troper has had a bit of a microphilia fetish since he watched the Goosebumps episode 'How I got my shrunken head' as a kid - I think it was the bit where the boy is allowed to keep the hot, shrunken girl imprisoned in his closet until he is sixteen...
  • The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Episode: "Time Tunnel". Big Pete calls Ellen on the phone: "try writing something with your foot." And she does. With close up.
  • The State. Thomas Lennon in basically everything except The Inbred Brothers is the very definition of a sexy intellectual for this troper. And the Monkey Torture sketch? Hello, S&M.
  • How can no one have mentioned Baywatch yet? When I was a teenager I used to tape it, then watch it in slow motion...
  • Criminal Minds. Hotch being forceful makes this troper weak in the knees.
    • Hotch in general, but that moment in "Damaged", for this troper. Where Hotch and Reid are locked up with a serial killer, and Hotch takes off his jacket and tie, rolls his sleeves up, and is totally about to kick the killer's ass. And then he's lurking in the background when Reid starts profiling the killer, his hand all near where his gun would be and staring intently at the killer and guh.
    • This troper has more than once gone all weak in the knees hearing Morgan and Garcia dirty-talk each other through a Eureka moment. It doesn't help that Garcia is a cuddly, blond bombshell who dresses in frills and flowers and is clearly Abby Sciuto's alternate universe self. And Reid... Jeezy Creezy... I'll be in my bunk.
      • Not to mention Reid's encyclopaediac knowledge.
      • Feck. Yes. And apparently he's a Star Trek nerd.
      • Also on the subject of Reid, uh... As much of a Tear Jerker as seeing him all beaten up and tortured in Revelations was, the hurt-comfort potential was kind of a little bit fetish-fuely for some of us.
      • And no one has mentioned the freaking lollipop.
    • Troper does not usually like girls. Troper makes an exception for stupid sexy Prentiss in "Slave of Duty", straddling a rapist UnSub after she's taken him down, holding her gun to his head and telling him to "play along" when he gets raped in prison himself. Good god, Emily Prentiss has never been hotter.
    • The scene in "Jones" where the female serial killer ties a guy to a bed, mounts him, then starts cutting him with a knife while calling him things like a bitch while he struggles and panics is disturbingly hot. And of course, there is also the serial killing call girl from "Pleasure is my Business" and the yangire from "The Perfect Storm"...
  • The Vampire Diaries
    • Damon Salvatore dancing to Depeche Mode. With his shirt open. And then there's the promo pictures of Damon/Elena/Stefan.
    • And him hooking up with the great Lady Heather, Melinda Clarke, was just Sqee. Not to mention Mia Kirshner being a nasty obviously bisexual vampire. It's like the writer read all my lesbian fantasy. Ian Somerhalder is the luckiest guy on earth for having 'hot scene' with these two.
    • After "Brave New World", this straight female troper found herself getting a little too excited watching newly vamped Caroline feed. Excited and confused all at once.
  • Sex And The City: There isn't a whole lot in the show that's fetish-y per se, but this straight female troper enjoyed seeing Charlotte as a drag king in one episode. Plus for some reason, when Samantha grabbed Richard by the balls and demanded to know how many other women he was sleeping with, I found that a lot hotter than most of the sex scenes. Also, seeing as how shoe obsessed these women are, someone out there is probably enjoying the Foot Focus.
  • There's a scene in part 2 of Alice where Hatter is tied to a chair in the trippy torture room and Doctors Twee and Dum are gleefully electrocuting him. There's blood on his cheek and he looks half dead. Then the March Hare shoos the doctors away and asks Hatter where the Resistance is located. Hatter is defiant. March pulls out a knife ... WHY did the scene have to end so soon?!
    • Hell, Hatter himself qualifies as Fetish Fuel. Eye makeup, British accent, the way he cares for Alice...and Alice herself must be someone's fetish fuel.
  • In Flight Of The Conchords, the way Mel acts towards Bret and Jemaine in the presence of her passive husband Doug has fueled this troper's cuckold fetish on more than one occasion.
    • Mel has a song about dreams, where she mentions public nudity.  This is HBO, and they couldn't show that?  Show some fucking balls, man!
  • This troper has only watched Two And A Half Men on occasion, but if he found out Melanie Lynskey was stalking him, he wouldn't be even remotely freaked out.
    • Also, let's just say Allen isn't the only one who has a thing for pregnant women. Hhhuuhh indeed.
  • One episode of Legend Of The Seeker is All. About. BDSM. Richard gets captured, and a woman in a dominatrix-y outfit then spends most of the episode using pain to make a very shirtless Richard become her love slave. She even gets him to call her "Mistress."
    • Not to mention the episode where Richard obtains the power of Orden which forces everyone to obey him, and turns him evil to boot. In addition, he ended up mostly using the power on the female members of the cast, namely to incite one nasty little Cat Fight.
  • The Man From UNCLE. Every episode, somebody gets beat up and/or tied up. And though, Napoleon Solo was the heartthrob playboy, Illya Kuryakin had blond hair and an accent. This troper will be in her bunk.
    • Illya Kuryakin is in-universe Fetish Fuel on Mad Men - at least, to Sally Draper. Quite a few female fans agreed with her taste.
  • LazyTown seriously needs an entire page on Fetish Fuel. You got the human dudes in spandex, which makes This Troper enjoy the show more than she really should (not counting the fact that topless photos of the show's creator exist). Then you get the Panty Shot and Lolicon factor of Stephanie... and a lot of people would argue that Bessie is a PILF.
    • "What's the matter kids? Never seen a giant banana before?" Enough Said.
  • A famous example from before this troper's time: the game "Twister" was being canceled for poor sales, but someone forgot to remove its spot from the Tonight Show. Johnny Carson and Eva Gabor got down on the floor to try it out, and Twister became an overnight hit.
  • This troper has had a gut-twisting crush on both Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels (of The Biggest Loser fame) since season two, when she first saw the show. It must be her kinky side...
  • Rachael Ray: Hollywood Pudgy(at least), Genki Girl, sexy voice, this troper knows he isn't the only one who's thought about bending her over that counter and-Hey, lunch is here!
  • Really wasn't sure where else to put this... If Christopher Walken's voice was a person, I'd make sweet, passionate love to it. Help?
    • Technically, that would be Audio Erotica, but I wouldn't put it there. People on that page are touchy about that kind of thing.
  • I watched Lois & Clark as a kid, and, thanks to Teri Hatcher's marvelous legs, I've had a thing for heels ever since...
  • The Prisoner episode where Number Six finds himself at the mercy of a female Number Two and an all but drooling female evil scientist wonders what his 'breaking' point is. And then there are the various times he's tied up, caged, strapped down....
    • This troper has a certain ... fondness for pretty much the entire episode "Once Upon A Time," wherein Number Two reverts Number Six back to childhood and plays all the authority figures through Six's life in an attempt to find out why he resigned (there is implied spanking). Also, Patrick McGoohan in general is Audio Erotica for me.
  • This troper's favorite part of the short lived Undeclared was Rachel, played by uber-Moe Monica Keena. He recalls one episode where she was embarrassed by having gained the "Freshman fifteen" and was wearing a sweater to hide it, and he wanted her to take the sweater off, so we could see all those new curves. His girlfriend at the time, meanwhile, had a thing for Seth Rogen.
  • Carnivale is a gold mine of Fetish Fuel. There is the snake-charming MILF (Adrienne Barbeau is still hot like fire); Bait And Switch Lesbians; Jonesy, full stop (why hello there, Tim DeKay's sweat-soaked chest); Justin's Compelling Voice, tattooing (with a really hot, topless, tiny Asian woman straddling 6'3" Clancy Brown), self-flagellation, and priest cassock; multiple BBWs, some of whom are strippers; Rita Sue, full stop; the voyeuristic Brother Sister Incest; Ben and Sofie's Auto Erotica; and Lodz and Lila's D/s daddykink with caning, absinthe, and pot-smoking.
    • This troper finds Jonsey's old-fashioned leg brace kinda hot for some reason.
      • One of the hottest scenes on the show is when Rita Sue strips Jonesy down, removing the leg brace, then kisses the scar on his knee. Troper will be, you know.
  • Lexx Everything. And it knows it. Rubber fetish? Toliet fetish? Cannibalism fetish? Vampires, love slaves, phallic spaceships and sex changing viruses? Most of these can be seen in the credits.
  • Fitness shows such as 'Namaste Yoga' and 'Shimmy'(which focuses on all women's bellies and how they use them) have a kind of fetish fuel in them.
  • Nobody's mentioned Knight Rider yet? For this troper, the human characters do nothing, but something about KI 3 T's voice.... (and it helps that the 2008 Mustang is one sexy car. Nom.)
  • Mary Frann's sweaters on Newhart. Lampshaded in the final episode when Bob Newhart wakes up to find that the whole series was just a dream and he's in bed with Suzanne Pleshette, his wife from his previous show. The final line in the series is him suggesting that she "should wear more sweaters."
  • The latest episode of "Mercy" had the usually mild-mannered, super professional Dr. Harris◊ grabbing the main nurse Veronica after another one of her freak outs and practically throwing her into a chair telling her to "Sit down, sit down NOW and do not move until I tell you to!". Mmmm-hmmm, yes, Sir!
  • In a recent episode of FlashForward2009, there's a scene in which Lloyd and Simon have both been roughed up and handcuffed. Then, when the bad guy fails to get an answer out of Lloyd, he has Simon tortured, and all the while, Simon is yelling Lloyd's name.
    • Don't forget Janis beating that assassin up...whilst wearing heels.
  • Every single noun and verb that comes out of Eden Lord's mouth (as well as the suggestions as to what should go into it) on her Establishing Character Moment on Nip Tuck.
  • When I was eight there was a television show called Nightmare Cafe. I think it was only on for, like, six episodes. At the beginning of the first episode, Blackie, played by Robert Englund, speaks directly to the camera and sets up the premise of the show. His voice is very soft and sultry, and he's wearing a black suit with a red vest, a long black coat and black leather gloves. It was the first time I really understood what the word "sexy" meant and I've had a crush on the man ever since.
  • RuPaul, in anything she's in. Let me count the ways: 1) Extremely sexy woman. 2) Tallest glass of water around. 3) Tends to wear super tight dresses/skirts, beautifully framing her hips that can stop traffic. 4) Somewhat deep, sexy voice. 5) Is actually a man!?! 0_o When this troper first saw her in In The House, at the tender age of 12, she simultaneously ingrained multiple fetishes into me that are still my strongest fetishes well over a decade later.
  • Since I was a kid, I've felt an unmistakable attraction to Asian women. I blame the episodes of Hunter that featured a recurring character, a Japanese mail-order bride married to the protagonist's friend. The clincher was an episode where she was asked if she wanted dinner; her reply was "I'm not hungry" and letting her bathrobe fall around her feet....
  • Serena might be the resident fanservice of Gossip Girl, but it's Blair's lingerie scenes that seems to do the trick for most viewers. Especially when she dresses up for an Anna Karenina sex role-play.
    • Starts in Season 1 with limo!sex between Chuck and Blair.
    • Add to this Chuck all but begging Blair to have sex with him early in season 2, and then the situation reversing so she's doing her damnedest to seduce him.
    • Season 3 doesn't actually show us much spice, but it's clear that they have a lot of varied role-play sessions and Blair owns handcuffs.
    • Season 4 takes this up to eleven - hot piano sex, Chuck going down on Blair while Serena's in the room, and Chuck revealing that Blair likes people to watch. Um, wow.
  • The Tudors has it fair share. Most of it provided by Natalie Dormer and Henry Cavill.
  • Okay, okay, I know Klinger subverted Attractive Bent Gender massively, but goddammit, I liked him in that Nurse's uniform!
    • Margaret enjoys cracking her whip. Need we say more?
  • This troper has found that she's most attracted to Murdock when he's essentially playing dress up, either as part of a scam or because it's his latest whim. Like when he and Face dressed as nuns. Or when he disguised himself as a client in her wedding dress. Or when he pretended to be a British Officer with a perfect Stiff Upper Lip. Or when he decided he was a cowboy. Or Captain Ahab. Or James Bond. Dammit, Murdock, what the hell?! I didn't know I had a roleplaying kink!
  • On the new FX show Louie, there are many scenes of Louis C K in states of undress, this troper has noticed. This feeds this cub's ginger fetish very nicely, as these scenes are common. May be considered Fan Service, though, as it seems that Louie is popular in the bear community
  • Top Gear has an unsurprising amount of cargo shippy fetish fuel in it, and a surprising amount of other kinds of fetish fuel. Virtually all of the Ho Yay on the show, for example, is top-notch Gay Bravado, which they carry offscreen into interviews and their columns and articles.
    • Pretty much Once An Episode, the presenters (and guests!) make lots of excited noises about cars or fast driving. Notably, Stephen Fry had a crisis during his fast lap, after calling the car "You bitch!" in a breathless voice.
    • Richard Hammond wedged between Jeremy Clarkson's thighs in a Dutch three-wheeler. "He ish my partner and alsho my lover!" And then there are the things James May imagines them to be doing in the master suite of an American-style motorhome, involving a traffic warden costume and a ball-gag...
    • The box of stuff they were given at the start of the Bolivia road trip, which contained winches, rubber tubing, condoms, tampons, and Viagra. "What kind of party are they planning?" On the same trip, James and his machete and his headband.
  • The popularity of evil villain Sheriff Donald Lamb on Veronica Mars was largely due to the fact that they cast Michael Muhney (a young actor in his late 20s) in the role and had him 99% of the time being shown in a tight fighting Sheriff's uniform, resulting in a villain. As such, rather than hating him most fans lusted after him...
  • Cops; hot looking police officers, often wearing tight leather gloves and tight uniforms/SWAT gear has made some fans joke about the show's longevity being due to the number of uniform fetishists who watch the show...
    • The number of fetish fans of Cops, goes farther by the way certain seasons/episodes are loved more than others. In particular, episodes involving the glove wearing cops of Pierce County/Riverside Washington are extremely popular amongst gay fans of the show.
  • Moffat and Gatiss' "Sherlock" (on BBC One) doesn't have an entry yet? Charismatic genius with ginsu-sharp cheekbones, wielding a riding crop? who knots his scarf with such loving care and later gets choked?
    • wsfjklglkl. Yes. That neck, and the coat, and the scarf. Also, gorgeous eyes, and curly hair. Oh, and the hands, and the gloves. Have I forgotten anything, fellow tropers?
      • You forgot that voice. That sort of crisp, intelligent, smoky, suggestive baritone should be illegal. Because let's be honest, who wouldn't answer any suggestion from Sherlock the way John Watson did? Sherlock: "Want to see some more?"John: "Oh, God, yes!"
      • Not to mention the security guard uniform. Really, with the crop, gloves, uniform, air of arrogant confidence and ability to manipulate people to do whatever he wants, Sherlock would be an awesome Dominant.
      • Add the suits and the fact that he is Tall Dark And Handsome incarnate, and we have a man who is nothing but Fetish Fuel.
    • If you can watch this clip of Sherlock taking off his scarf and do not want him to tie you up with it, you are either not attracted to men, or lying.
    • I would put Lestrade in here, for his Bad Ass Long Coat. And Sherlock certainly seems to know his firearms (except when he doesn't).
    • Am I the only one who found Sherlock's voice even sexier After he got choked in The Blind Banker?
    • This troper is a bit too fond of those jumpers that John Watson wears...I would snuggle up to that man SO MUCH...
      • John Watson: Not so bloody tall, kinda adorkable when he's not being badass, and with a propensity for getting kidnapped. Yes, please.
      • Captain John Watson pulling rank at Baskerville. Hello military kink.
    • Irene Adler: Dominatrix. Lesbian Dominatrix. Lesbian Dominatrix of royalty. Not to mention her "battle armor". Pure Ms. Fanservice. And for the ladies...
    • Sherlock wearing nothing but a bedsheet to Buckingham Palace. Exhibitionist tendancies? Then Mycroft steps on the back of the sheet and we are treated to a quick but full view of the backside.
    • Sherlock and John punching each other in the face. Then John jumps Sherlock from behind and takes him down, reminding him, "You forget, I was a soldier. I killed people." BAMF indeed.
    • Irene and Sherlock's first meeting. Irene is entirely nude, Sherlock... is dressed as a priest. Unf.
    • Sherlock gets a taste of the other end of the riding crop courtesy of Irene.
      • Bonus points that he's on the floor drugged, confused, and moaning at this point.
    • John taking care of the drugged Sherlock, including at one point just chucking the much larger Sherlock into his bed. Again with the tiny BAMF sexiness.
    • Things begin to go very badly for Mycroft, and he spends a scene sinking into quiet despair. The sight of the normally cold, calm and frighteningly in-control man in his shirt-sleeves with an empty bottle beside him and rubbing his hands through his hair gave me the shivers.
    • Sherlock getting rageful and coldly calculating injury points on his currently bound and gagged opponent is scary-hot.
    • No mention of Moriarty yet? He's pretty much a Foe Yay fan's dream come true. Not to mention near the start of Reichenbach Fall, that thing with his mouth and the gum.. You know where to find me.
  • Rizzoli And Isles: Maura playing baseball in a water-resistant, skin-tight suit.
    • All the Foe Yay between Jane and the serial killer Hoyt in the pilot episode had a sort of Mind Game Ship appeal to it.
    • "Money for Nothing" had Maura in a tight running suit AND Mark-Paul Gosselaar, shirtless and in a swimsuit.
    • Naturally, the episode "I Kissed a Girl" oozes of this trope. You have Jane flirting with numerous suspects and being kissed on the neck by murderer, Maura wearing a tight waitress dress that allows her to show off maximum cleavage and a baby bump, and Jane and Maura discussing lesbianism (Jane said she would "flip" sexual preferences for front row Boston Celtics tickets) and telling each other that they're not each others' type (riiiiiiiight!). Oh, and they are doing this in Jane's bed! But there is more than the Les Yay that qualifies for fan service. There's the yoga scenes. Maura is once again in a skin-tight workout suit, while Jane is in yoga pants and a training bra, showing off abs that you could balance a quarter on (keep in mind that Angie Harmon has three kids).
    • How many times can Jane and Maura be seen wearing tight clothes on this show? They do it again in "Born to Run."
      • This troper admits to being distracted by Jane's Hartman Hips in her running outfit.
    • All the Les Yay Ship Tease between Jane and Maura.
    • Jane wearing a little black dress.
  • Your Mileage May Vary on this one, but — Graeme Garden. Radio Goodies. No glasses. Outfitted up as a Germanic-esque military leader. Donning a slight accent, grabbing Tim by the lapels, pushing the others around, for one moment losing all the usual inhibition he had as a calm straight man/snarker type, being absolutely off his gourd — yes. So much yes.
  • Casualty has loads of them. Hot extras (particularly the female ones), and other things worth mentioning. Not to mention Sam Grey...
  • White Collar, from the very beginning, has a very pretty Guile Hero willingly becoming a Boxed Crook and having copious amounts of Ho Yay with the FBI agent who now "owns" him. It is then not at all uncommon to see him held or menaced by others, or to use some cover identity that appeals to some kink or other.
  • Degrassi The Next Generation. First, there's Ellie. Then there's Emma, for the masochists. Toby/Ashley subtext. JT if you like 'em little, and Craig if you like 'em big. Les Yay between Paige and Alex. And of course, Sean. Just...Sean.
  • Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire. Oh, so many times.
    • Krod leaning and panting against a horse belonging to a man named Horse(d)raper, who owns a harem stable. True, he had in fact just nearly been assassinated, but...
    • The succubus scene, in which the the group are "attacked" by some very attractive Alien Wing Wongs.
    • The time Anaka spends with Ralph Longshaft.
  • Cannot believe Sanctuary isn't on here.
  • Where to begin with The IT Crowd? My personal favorite is the episode where Moss slams Roy against a wall and kisses him in an attempt to hide from police. In another episode Roy runs around the office with his shirt off. Reference is made to Douglas kissing Moss while under the influence of a date rape drug. And, of course, there's the end of series one when Jen sleeps with Moss, Roy sleeps with a therapist who looks like his mother and Richmond sleeps with Denholm .
    • This troper just started watching fourth season and just now realised that Jen's voice is turning him on big time. Mostly because of the thick accent, but there's also this nice... flavor in her voice that I like really much. If IT Crowd was just about Jen talking the whole episode, it would be like porn to me.
  • How does Xena not have any examples here? How does Xena not have its own PAGE?! I don't even know where to begin...
  • How about with the leather, and the midriff baring outfits, and the LesYay, and the general BAMF-ness of the leading ladies?
  • This troper was really determined to dislike the upcoming live action Cartoon Network show Tower Prep... but then she saw all the guys in in school uniforms. GODDAMMIT.
  • Mary Tyler Moore was always gorgeous on The Dick Van Dyke Show, but one scene in particular stuck with me even as a child: when she slides out of a closet on a cascade of walnuts (as part of a dream sequence). "MILF" wasn't a term yet back then, but it should have been.
    • It's more Fetish Fuel since in that episode she's an alien with two more eyes in the back of her head.
  • Has no one mentioned Lilith Sternin-Crane? Good god, she is the hottest shrink this troper has ever seen, even before she lets her hair down!
  • Hornblower. Was it some sort of contractual obligement that meant Ioan Gruffudd had to get soaking wet EVERY EPISODE?
    • No mention of Archie? The sweet, loyal best friend, who is either the woobie to badass adorable, depending on the situation. Plus he's played by the very pretty Jamie Bamber. Fine, if no one else wants him, I get to keep him all to myself.
  • The Two Live Crew Job episode of Leverage has Eliot Spencer getting into a fight with his female counterpart. The amount of steam in the room makes both of them incredibly sweaty (which leads to shedding of outerwear) and the scene ends with Eliot finally gaining control. There's a squeeze, a kiss and a click. He lifts him arm to show off that he's handcuffed himself to her. And the audience at home slowly slide off of their chairs.
    • This series needs its own Fetish Fuel page. Parker is the most obvious reason (being a Broken Bird Cloud Cuckoolander Ms Fanservice), but Sophie (especially in a dress suit, extra-especially feigning an American accent) is quite a good reason as well.
    • For some inexplicable reason, Nate casually smashing in car windows in the pilot episode.
  • The Event's third episode had a hot female cop covered in blood, handcuffed to a bed and scenes of the heroes hot girlfriend ductaped and gagged evil by evil female alien.
  • You know, looking back on it, watching Tristan Farnon from All Creatures Great And Small growing up might have something to do with why I finds men who smoke so damn sexy. It doesn't make him look like a badass, it just makes him look like a scamp. Even better! Also, at one point, James winds up wearing a thick black rubber suit which severely restricts his movement. Ostensibly it's for delivering calves, but Angus Grier does all the work and just makes James stand around in the suit looking stupid. Rubber fetish and public humiliation? Nice combo. This troper's also pretty sure the scenes of pretty shirtless young men getting covered in cow shit appeals to some people ... They do have the odd ShirtlessScene without the manure, which is a little more broadly appealing.
  • At the beginning of the second season Deadwood, After Timothy Olyphant and Molly Parker have just had rough sex, Molly's lying there with her shirt open, so we can see her breasts, as well as her pooched belly, plus, she's sweating, so her hair is wet and matted to her forehead, and then, to top it all off, she lifts one arm, and she has a bit of hair under there. It's like they read my mind, and said, "Let's see how many of this guy's fetishes we can put on screen at once." Also, there's the very buxom woman getting into the bath in the opening credits sequence.
  • Drake And Josh. Not in the obvious Ho Yay way, either; Megan is so into humiliating people that there's no way she didn't introduce a few people to femdom and/or humiliation.
  • Due South. Every last bit of "Victoria's Secret" that isn't massive Tear Jerker material (and sometimes it overlaps — the scene in the peep-show booth is both heartbreaking and ridiculously femdom/humiliation-y), but the fingers-in-his-mouth bit and the Sexy Shirt Switch with the Mountie jacket particularly stand out.
  • In H2O: Just Add Water we have the adorkable, woobie-ish, blond floppy haired Lewis, the Tsundere Rikki, bad boy Zane, hot shirtless surfer boys Byron and Will, tons of mid-riff baring outfits for the girls and more LesYay that you can poke a stick at. Plus the mermaid tails really accentuate the girls' hips.
  • There's an episode of Danger Man (Secret Agent in the US) where John Drake is captured by people who want to use him in a voodoo ritual. They tie him to the ground with his arms and legs splayed out and then tear his shirt open. Handsome man being tied down and stripped... What's that tingly sensation I'm feeling?
  • Moonlight. Basically all of it since it contains Alex O'Loughlin as a vampire, but more specifically, this scene where Josef turns Mick back into a vampire. They already had piles and piles of HoYay but this scene was the Crowning Moment of Gay. We have Josef going all attack!vampire!mode on a human Mick, shoving him against the wall, pressing up really really close, hungrily eyeing his neck and visibly restraining himself from biting. Then Mick realizes he needs to turn back into a vampire for his rescue mission to work and gets all teary while begging Josef to turn him back. Josef gets all teary too and agrees to do it. Then he bites and Mick seriously makes an orgasm-face and groans. Then he goes all limp in Josef's arms, who lowers him down onto a table really tenderly and carefully, whilst still drinking. Then he bites his own arm and lets the blood drip into Mick's mouth (which should be disgusting except it's not.) Then Mick grabs his arm and starts sucking on the wound, making these hot little whimpery noises and Josef looks like he's enjoying himself too. So...um, yeah... I'll be in my bunk.
  • The HoYay (with lots and lots of BDSM overtones) between Boston Rob and Philip on Survivor: Redemption Island. And Fabio, from Nicaragua.
  • It's a horrible thing to admit, but: Spooks. Ros. Water torture chair. There's just something about watching her crack...
  • Roz and Daphne's rampant Les Yay in Frasier really does it for me.
  • This Troper has a crush on Conan O'Brien and a tickle fetish... Jason Sudekis came on the show and had them getting foot massages during his interview. Conan was revealed to have very ticklish toes...and uh... in my bunk now.
  • Horrible Histories has a few sketches that are hotter than they have any right to be for what is theoretically a children's program. Yes, I'm looking at you, Dick Turpin. And of course all the period costumes throughout probably do it for someone as well. (...Me.)
  • Teen Wolf. Nevermind all the shirtless guys. In "Pack Mentality," when Scott panics and starts to wolf out at school, and in "Night School," when he is forced to shift, this troper discovered that her tastes may not be so vanilla after all. With as many times as I've watched those bits, it's a good thing my video copy is digital.
  • The Curb Your Enthusiasm episode "The Bare Midriff"; Jerry Seinfeld's assistant wears midriff-baring shirts, and has a bit of a belly. Larry and Jerry are disgusted, but I want to see what she looks like completely naked.
    • Susie Green: A fiery, older Jewish woman with amazing titties that beg to have your face buried between them.
  • Jennifer Jason Leigh in season 5 of Weeds; the big glasses, the episode where she gets drunk, and her tits are hanging out...Hm!
  • All the Ho Yay in 'Oz', plus those shower scenes, and male nudity and shirtless scenes and that scene of Beecher and Keller (a gay couple) backstage.
    • Keller and Ryan in general are quite sexy, being quite attactive manipulative bastards that love to seduce and manipulate other people for their own gain. Then there's Ryan's obsession with Dr. Nathan.
  • No mention of American Horror Story? You shock me, Wiki.
  • [Victorious] brings us a lot of this but what does it for this troper is [Jade] [West]. She's a [[fanservicey] [goth] with sexy voice]]. Yes Please
  • I know it hasn't been on for very long, but is there seriously no Once Upon A Time love out here? I mean for cripes sake, Rumplestiltskin/Mr.Gold alone has been having a profound effect on the female fans, myself included.
    • Pretty much the entirety of Hat Trick: when Jefferson's interactions with Emma aren't NightmareFuel, they're disturbingly erotic: he stalks her around the room, giving her maybe six inches of personal space (if that), and straight-up sniffs her hair. You could be forgiven for wondering if he wanted more from Emma than a hat.
  • I wish there was more love for Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stephens on "Bewitched". A Hot Mom with an adorable nose wiggle whom Darrin gave a tantalizing, vengeful smack on the ass to in one episode. Yum.
  • The newest episode (Aired June 22, 2012) of the Disney Channel show Jessie has the title character wear both a circus ringleader's outfit, and a Raggedy Ann-esque doll outfit. Damn.
  • Revenge , a modernized version of The Count of Monte Cristo with a female Edmond Dantes, Emily, in the lead, has quite a lot to offer in the way of fetish fuel. At least three canon Depraved Bisexuals, badass Emily systematically destroying the people who framed her father and ruined her childhood, Emily's rare moments of vulnerability, all the guns getting waved around, and how Emily's way of dealing with Nolan interfering with her business is to slam him against the wall by his throat. That last one was this troper's favorite part of the show.
  • Skyler on Breaking Bad, while she can be kind of a douchebag, in between seasons 3 and 4 seems to have gained some weight, and wow. I think this warrants some hate sex.
  • Ask any dude-appreciating Red Dwarf fan about their favorite momens in the series, and it's very likely they'll recall a certain scene from "Terrorform," in which an indignant (and unexpectedly buff) Rimmer is chained to a column in an underground temple, stripped down to a loincloth, oiled by sexy attendents, and offered as a sacrifice to a beast created from his own self-loathing (MakesSenseInContext).
  • And while I'm on the Red Dwarf thing (Yeah, this is the same troper. Wanna make something of it?), how about "Camille," in which Lister enlists the, um, straightforward approach in attempting to seduce the titular character. Short, dreadlocked Scouser in a funny hat? Doesn't sound great on paper but, well, see for yourself: Kochanski Camille - Red Dwarf - BBC comedy - YouTube
    • The original Kochanski; the red hair, the northern accent, the fact she's a spaceship engineer. No wonder Lister was so smitten.
  • Surprised this show hasn't been mentioned, but in Californication, any scene involving Mia being naughty, flirty, or whatever, but particularly the scene where Hank wakes up with her straddling him, in a ratty old t-shirt, with her hair clipped back, and no make-up.
    • There's also Pamela Adlon as Marcy Runkle.  Thank you, God, for middle-aged Jewish women!  Especially ones with raspy voices.
  • Arrested Development: This troper was always warm for Alia Shawkat's form, even though it so totally wasn't appropriate at the time.  It didn't help that,even though she was fourteen when the show started, she already had the breasts and hips of a fertility goddess.  Also, based on her ethnic stock(she's half Arabic) and her complexion, she almost certainly has brown nipples.
  • The Shield: Uh, hello, nine-months-pregnant Danni Sofer in a purple bra and panties.  That certainly came out of nowhere...
  • Hannibal: This troper was confused by her feelings over the episode Entrée. Will Graham imagines himself in the killer's shoes as the killer/Will murders a nurse. Will's shirt is open, he's covered in sweat, and he leisurely takes his time stalking his prey. The way the scene is set up makes it look strangely sexual
    • 90s Gillian Anderson?  Eh, she's kind of cute, I guess.  New tens Gillian Anderson?  Holy fuck!
  • I was flipping around in a hotel room recently, and I caught some Britcom called "Spy". In the scene I came in on, a very GMILFy Lindsay Duncan was going all horny schoolgirl over some younger guy who works for her. Two guesses what I thought about the next day, after waking up with my usual raging morning boner.
  • True Detective season two isn't as good as season one, but Rachel McAdams with that short, unkempt hair...Excuse me a second...
