This and what Serpentine said. (also, there is a scene like that in one of the early Street Fighter Animateds with Chun-Li getting attacked by Vega(or Balrog if you prefer the original name assignments
) after getting out of the shower, though I think it was played for a lot of titillation. Don't recall, though)
