Of course, there's the book where Bond goes beyond the call of duty, In Her Majesty's Secret Cervix.

The Sperm Count of Monte Cristo
Semen Schama's History of Britain
The Impotence of Being Earnest
King Smear
Swab Roy
The Forceps Saga

There's J.B. Priestley's play about training doctors, And Inspect 'is Balls.

Some of these are rather below the belt. How about The Honorary Tonsil?

I suppose Coriolanus would be below the belt and certainly bottom of the list.
