* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': In a scrapped scene, [[ThreesomeSubtext Rei tried to make a move on Shinji and Asuka]] when she was heavily medicated, insisting that she was more than clear-headed enough for making such a decision, and the detox was mostly just messing with her inhibition ''not'' to hit on them. Even so, Shinji and Asuka tried to resist.

** It also justified by the way the deed happens: It isn't a high Cameron randomly stumbling across Chase and offering him, but she actively takes the drug and ''tracks him down to his home'' to have sex with him.

** In another episode, Lilth [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} was going a little overboard about her pregnancy]], and told Sam to touch her breasts (after seriously glamorizing how she would feed her child with them). Despite her, in effect, ''asking him to feel her up'', Sam declined, both because of this trope and the fact he was ''royally creeped out''.

* The Lovely Lacey [[MeanBoss openly despised]] Wrestling/JimmyJacobs but kept him around mainly because she alienated all her other Wrestling/RingOfHonor allies. She would sometimes offer Jacobs {{sex for services}} only to be turned down because Jacobs loved her and didn't want their relationship to be based on lust. Ironically, it wasn't until they actually slept together that Lacey changed her tune and said she loved him.[[/folder]]
