[[folder:Professional Wrestling]] * 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]]

Bob will then feel bad for possibly hurting a girl's feelings and may get some mocking from people he tells, especially from his guy friends and even more so if [[AManIsNotAVirgin he is a virgin]]. Occasionally Alice will thank him for being so noble and drop hints that he's an OK guy. Sometimes they get it together after this little talk.

** The second time, Latka had cheated on Simka (he had done it to keep himself and the other woman from freezing to death in a blizzard) and the pastor of their religion told her to do it with someone else in order to make amends. (Yes, he was serious; apparently it was either that or divorce. Alex would later call out the whole organization for thinking two wrongs made a right.) Simka approached Alex for it, but he refused; to him, it would be taking advantage of a woman ''asking'' to be raped. (Eventually, an offhand suggestion from Jim that Latka and Simka could divorce and marry a second time - nobody said they couldn't - [[TakAThirdOption resolved the issue]].)

* In ''Series/{{Taxi}}'', this happened to Alex ''twice'': ** The first time, Elaine was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and started to come on to Alex as a way of compensating. Seeing as she's obviously very vulnerable, he turns her away. (Although later, after she has spoken to a therapist, Alex says he's glad they "stopped before we did something we both would have... [[ButIWouldReallyEnjoyIt fondly remembered for the rest of our lives."]] ** The second time, Latka had cheated on Simka (he had done it to keep himself and the other woman from freezing to death in a blizzard) and the pastor of their religion told her to do it with someone else in order to make amends.

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Subverted. In chapter 5 Asuka has got it with holding her emotions back and decides to have sex with Shinji after asking him if he trusts her to not be impaired by ego or alcohol. Shinji refuses at the beginning, arguing that she has drunk several beers that night so that he can not be sure that she is not inebriated. Asuka argues back she is completely sober ([[HardDrinkingPartyGirl and she might be]]) and very serious. Shinji still resists but she insists ''a lot'' and he finally gives in. Neither of them regret it the next morning (although they are still very hesitant about their relationship).

* A nasty use of InvokedTrope comes into play on the New Zealand soap ''ShortlandStreet'', where a girl drunkenly comes on to her psychotic StalkerWithACrush, who ''murdered her brother'', among other people, because said brother wouldn't have been cool with his schoolgirl sister dating his 30 something year old friend. The girl has had a crush on psycho for a long time, but he kinda screwed his chances up when he tried to strangle her for suspecting him of involvement in her brother's death. It's been a while since that happened, but she's still doubtful about a relationship with him. So he shows up, gets her drunk, then invokes this trope when she goes to kiss him. Cue the poor girl deciding that he must be a decent guy, and they get together the next day. [[ForegoneConclusion It don't work out.]]

For Dipper, it conjures up a version of [[PrecociousCrush Wendy]] who finally reciprocates his interest in her. Notable in that [[CharacterArc Dipper has struggled for the entire season]] to let go of her, and his rejection means he's come to terms with the fact that they can't be together. * ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', when the spirit of jealousy takes over someone, it turns them into a [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Gollum]]-esque wretch obsessed with the thing they most desire. When it takes over [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Darwin]], all he says is that he's pretty happy with his life.
