* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', "Amazon Women In the Mood" involves Fry, Zapp Brannigan, and Kif being sentenced to "Death By Snoo Snoo" by burly muscular Amazons. Their response is a combination of cheers and groans of pain as they are locked in a room and the entire tribe systematically lines up to have their way with them. They are rescued (eventually) before their pelvises are crushed, and no lasting damage is done. (Note that Fry and Zapp don't seem to have any resistance to the idea itself; Kif, who does, manages to escape it, and is rescued by Amy.)

* {{OFWGKTA}} frequently plays with this trope. While frontman Tyler, The Creator often rapes women either as revenge for rejecting his advances or simply ForTheEvulz, he himself also gets molested or raped on several occasions by Chris Stokes ("French"), JesusChrist ("Splatter"), JeffreyDahmer and RKelly ("Swag Me Out") and Music/MichaelJackson ("Tron Cat"). Earl Sweatshirt's self-titled debut album also features frequent bouts of this trope.

A partial exception (depending on how well it's done) to the 'not inherently funny' thing we just said about sexual assault is the [[DoubleStandard sexual assault]] [[DismissedGender of men]] (including, if not especially, [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale by women]]). A big part of the humour is the idea that men shouldn't need help and aren't 'manly'/masculine if they ask for and/or get it - this 'meaning' ([[SarcasmMode inverted commas]]) that being sexually assaulted as a man isn't just amazingly painful, especially if it's someone you know and/or trust, but also [[VictimBlaming something one deserves if one is unwilling or unable to prevent it.]]

As a general rule, the best comedic material about sexual assault demonstrates a certain compassion and understanding[[note]] Sexual assault as largely a question of power/control rather than sex, having effects unique to each victim (sexuality, gender, species etc of perpetrator being irrelevant), having no influence on sexuality of victim or perpetrator, etcetc[[/note]] that the worst does not[[note]] in favour of a kind of sneering dismissiveness that hints at very real contempt [[/note]] - ''especially'' when it takes the form of [[CrossesTheLineTwice deliberate mean-spiritedness and/or ignorance that highlights our own compassion and knowledge]].

* Creator/BillCosby, after being subjected to rape allegations, told female audience members that they should be careful drinking around him. It did not go over well.
* David Mitchell in his Soapbox YouTube series discusses how rape sounds horrible standalone, but loses its edge when not, on the example of "Raping and Pillaging". Going off to Rape and Pillage sound like jolly good fun, but takes a dark turn if someone states "...Well, NOT pillaging"

* Mangle sexually assaulting Foxy in [[FanFic/DantesNightAtFreddys Dante's Night At Freddy's 2: Animatronic Boogaloo]] is treated as absurd, sad, disgusting and hilarious all at the same time. It helps that Foxy himself actually responds to it with little more than annoyance.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9051968/1/Harry-Potter-Unexpected-Animagus Harry Potter, Unexpected Animagus]]'' Viktor Krum cheats during the First Task by using a rabbit covered in sex-change potion to turn the female dragon he's facing into a male so it'll be less interested in guarding the nest containing the golden egg he needs to retrieve. Unfortunately for him, in his nervousness he bungles the Cheering Charm he tries to cast afterwards, turning it into a Gay Charm. Let's just say that karma can be a ''real'' bitch sometimes...

* Although most examples of this series are in the Female on Male category, ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' managed to include a Male on Female example as well - in an episode where Al grills burgers, the prospect of such a manly activity (grilling, finally eating meat) made him so horny he grabbed Peggy against her will a couple of times and dragged her off-screen to rape her. Like the {{Gender Flip}}ped version, this is played as just as much laughs.

** Also, while Bud was often the ''victim'' of this, he was the aggressor in one episode. Seeking revenge on a girl who's been stringing him along, Bud convinces the guy she's really interested in (and who could care less about her) to go along with his plan容ntice the girl into meeting him under the bleachers for a round of quickie sex. Later, the girl is seen emerging from the bleachers, adjusting her clothes, apparently completely unaware葉hanks to the darkness葉hat [[BedTrick she just had sex with Bud]], who the audience soon sees coming out a few minutes after she did.

** Also, Al turned the tables on Peggy in one episode, where Al's Labor Day barbecue gives him a serious case of libido, and he forces her into sex ''several'' times.
