* ''Film/{{Superbad}}'' uses ''Film/{{Superbad}}'': Seth and Evan plan to mildly avert this, hoping that the targets of their affections will be more open to hooking up with them if they've had a couple of drinks. Ultimately [[spoiler: played straight. In Evan's case, although having sex is the point of the teenager's plan. It does have him getting together he willingly goes into a bedroom alone with Becca, as soon as he realises just how smashed she is, he stops them going any further than kissing. The same happens with Seth and Jules, but with the girl roles reversed. The stone-cold sober Jules makes it clear she'd be into getting with the utterly plastered Seth, but not while he's as shit-housed as he is at the end. It's also subverted somewhat, as [[spoiler:Jules is completely sober, and Seth is very much drunk]].party]].

* In ''Series/{{Lucifer}}'', the titular character tries to get into Chloe's pants since day one. In a moment of weakness, after being dumped via a text message ([[spoiler:it was actually sent by someone else]]), she gets plastered and comes to Lucifer's club and throws herself at him. He is as surprised as her when he realizes he can't go through with it, with her in that condition. He admits that, normally, he'd be all too happy to indulge in carnal desire. This is just the latest indication that he's slowly turning human.

* ''Fanfic/XMenTheEarlyYears'': In the "Boy Scouts, Sex, and Other Mysterious Things" chapter, a heavily inebriated Jean throws herself at Scott, who states it's not happening.
-->'''Scott:''' You're drunk. We shouldn't be doing this.\\
'''Jean:''' Run wild with me. You would never be able to do it with Sue. Let go and lose control.\\
'''Scott:''' We're not doing this.\\
'''Jean:''' Why?\\
'''Scott:''' We are not doing this. One, you're drunk and not thinking clearly. You're the closest thing to a best friend I have and I refuse to ruin our friendship for a five-second hormone rush. I care for you too much to take advantage of you like that; it's a line I won't cross. Two, I am not prepared or equipped for this and I can almost guarantee that you're not either. I refuse to do something in the heat of the moment that could affect the rest of your life. Three, if the guys ever found out, they would trounce me and I'd let them. We all agreed you're off limits. Four, what the guys left breathing the Professor would gladly finish off. So, we are not doing this.

Then he accidentally implies that he's looking for a one night stand, and she gets angry at the insult and walks away.
