* In Creator/LinneaSinclair's ''Gabriel's Ghost'', Sully's high on some liquid courage and works up the nerve to kiss his long time crush. She resists because he's drunk; if he really wanted her surely he would have made a move when he was sober, therefore it's just the drugs and he'll regret it in the morning. Then he accidentally implies that he's looking for a one night stand, and she gets angry at the insult and walks away.

** PlayedWith in ''both'' directions in , when Robin, after her nasty breakup with Don, tells Ted that she's pretty sure that she'll try to have revenge sex with him in the near future.

*** In the entire series, it has been completely averted by Rito, ''once'' and that took the influence of a very powerful alien aprhodisiac that completely shut down his consciousness. Fortunately he was SharingABody with someone else at the time, or things could have gotten [[DoubleStandardRapeSciFi really dark.]]
