* Phil Foglio's ''XXXenophile'' sometimes uses this, but usually with a comedic twist. For example, the one where the nymph mentions casually in passing that people's orgasms keep the earth from exploding, or the one where a {{time travel}}ler from the future has to find out whether it's worth bringing back women through cloning, but it turns out [[spoiler:it's just a [[strike:normal]] exceptional couple roleplaying]]. Foglio is careful to make sure the sex always remains consensual and un-forced, no matter how weird the situation gets. For example, there is a ghost who can be sent on to heaven by having sex with the specific guy she was fantasizing about when she died, or he can just ''tell'' her to go. The sex is not obligatory.

* ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}: Heroes: Vol. 1''. Huma, Knight of the Sword. One of the final gambits of Takhisis, Queen of Darkness is that she could show him... things. [[IncorruptiblePurePureness He refuses.]]

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' gave us the Cult of Ecstasy. Sure, they didn't just revolve around using sex as magical foci (they also used drugs, music, meditation, etc.), but that was easily the aspect with the most humor potential.
** ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' carries it on with a [[PrestigeClass Legacy]] called the Whipping Boys. They don't use sex, exactly, but BDSM, using deeply intensive "sessions" to find revelation in a place beyond pain and pleasure.
** [[TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost Changelings]] draw their power from the presence of strong emotions, especially the driving emotion of their own Court. The Spring Court's theme is Desire, and while it attracts every flavour of ''bon vivant'', it keeps [[HighClassCallGirl Sage Escorts]] on staff for this reason.

* Cruelly subverted in ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}'', where one of the Koga ninjas is Kagerou, a beautiful and sexy BrokenBird who will never be able to have sex with a man she truly loves since [[BlessedWithSuck her breath becomes poisonous]] when she's aroused.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/TheTestamentOfSisterNewDevil'': Basara's BattleHarem consists of five girls who all are able to grow more powerful by committing various sex acts with him. Three are contracted in master-servant contracts to him, which results in his and their powers increasing whenever he "forces them to submit". One is a succubus whose power is directly drawn from lust and the satisfaction of said lust. The last is a spirit summoner who has to use dark spirits in the nether realm, and her access to those spirits increases as she becomes more familiar/comfortable with her weaknesses and desires, again through sex acts.

* In Peter S. Beagle's ''The Folk of the Air,'' there is a fairly random sex scene between an ancient evil spirit in a boy's body and a young ([[{{Squick}} very young]]) woman for the purpose of "tantric sorcery."

Overlaps in places with IntimateHealing and ThePowerOfLove. If the DeusSexMachina had not been foreshadowed before in any way, it's also a case of CoitusEnsues. See also MateOrDie, AliensMadeThemDoIt, and LevelUpAtIntimacy5.

* A possible choice at the end of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is for [[spoiler: [[HotWitch Morrigan]] to conceive a child with either Alistair, Loghain or the male player character in order to make a receptacle for the Archdemon's soul; otherwise, a HeroicSacrifice is necessary. Unlike other examples of this trope, this choice is far more serious than it looks, and when pressed Morrigan refuses to explain exactly what she'll ''do'' with the kid once it's born. (If the trope's taken and Morrigan's son Kieran is conceived, ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has her [[GoodParents raising the boy quite lovingly]].]])

* Completely inverted in ''PlanescapeTorment'', where the token demoness is a reformed succubus, runs an Intellectual Brothel and refuses to feast on horny men for her power. She is the healer of the party, but not quite the [[IntimateHealing Intimate Healer]]; her kisses are an attack.

* ''BrutalLegend'': Apparently, years of orgy and violence can cause a [[spoiler:"temporal perversion" aka ''time travel'']]. It's the Tainted Coils we are talking about, however, it's almost expected.

* In ''EmbricOfWulfhammersCastle'', Huraine (goddess of love, lush scenery, strawberries and chocolate) requires this of her worshipers in their rituals, which is good news for Dorcas. One of the MultipleEndings even has the Duchess becoming the centrepiece of one of these rituals.
