All those TV shows (too numerous to mention but an example is "This Old House") which feature people more handy than you doing amazing renovations to houses you could not afford, with tools you could not afford. The parallel to movies where amazingly buff people have sex with other amazingly attractive people you could never get into bed is obvious. The phenomenon extends to "food porn" (a.k.a. cooking shows) as well. It is central to the analogy that most viewers will merely sit and fantasize about doing what they see the pros doing, rather than actually getting up and doing it themselves.

Not to be confused with dirty "Home Improvement" fanfic you might find on the Internet: "Oh Jill, would you like to work on my 'hot rod'?".
