* This is what makes Issei a lovable ChivalrousPervert (with emphasis on the "pervert") in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', rather than a dangerous sleaze. Even pre-CharatcerDevelopment, he refuses to have sex with a girl he's actively lusting after when it's obvious she's doing it for the wrong reasons and not enjoying herself at all. Later, he refuses another seeking SexForSolace, figuring it'll just hurt her more in the long run. He even manages to resist TheCutie offering him "[[SkinshipGrope skinship]]" when he realizes she doesn't know he'll want to hit for a home run. In short, no matter how perverted his ravings, informed consent is ''very'' important to him.

** In the comic series, [[spoiler:a drunk Buffy throws herself at Spike, [[InVinoVeritas babbling about how much she misses him and wants them to get back together]]. He's not sure whether she really means it or is just really drunk, but he gently turns her down before taking this trope a step further by [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming escorting her to her room, tucking her in bed, and standing guard outside to make sure no one takes advantage of her in her sleep]].]]

* ''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.

* ''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.

Then Mark starts making moves on Leslie, which she rejects because she doesn't want it to "be like this" (note that years prior, Leslie and Mark had a fling which the former had been hung up on for a while whereas the latter forgot all about it).
