* In Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/{{Ringworld}}'' series, depending on the particular human subspecies involved, when two inhabitants from different subspecies meet, the standard greeting may be ritualized sex ("Rishathra" is the word for this among the species our protagonist meets in ''The Ringworld Engineers''), though for some cultures it is taboo. (People still talk about Niven showing up at a sci-fi convention in the late 1970s wearing a button that said "I have sex outside my species.")

* In ''BlissStage'', the power of a Pilot's DreamWorld HumongousMecha is based on the intimacy level of their relationships. To get the maximum of Intimacy 5 with anyone you're not related to, you have to have sex with them. It's quite disturbing considering the Pilots are teenagers, and the Anchors that produce their mecha and the various supporting characters are either teenagers, or full-out children.

* Played ridiculously straight in ''Manga/Yuria100Shiki''. Yuria is a {{sexbot}} [[IJustWantToBeNormal trying her best]] to not be one. However, despite her best efforts, she inevitably winds up rationalizing some reason to have sex with Shunsuke. HilarityEnsues.

* ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'': {{Justified}}, because Ryosuke derives his power from eroticism, so he has to keep his thoughts focused on perverted fantasies and euphemisms to maintain it. That way, he can readily restore [[BattleCouple his partner]], [[{{Shinigami}} Lisara's]] when her fire magic begins to run out.

* The ''{{Manga/Gantz}}'' anime toys with this: while Kurono is still unused to using the Gantz suit, he theorizes that it only functions when he is turned on. This theory is only referenced in one scene and the suit seems to function consistently after that, so either Kurono was wrong and the suit also responds to other kinds of "excitement," or he's turned on a LOT. (Knowing Kurono, the latter is at least as likely as the former.)

* Phil Foglio's ''ComicBook/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.

* In a ''Series/TrueBlood''[=/=]''Film/{{X-Men}}'' crossover ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6051043/1/Survival-of-the-Fallen Survival of the Fallen]]'', it turns out that [[spoiler:Rogue of all people]] is a succubus. In this case Succubi aren't outright demonic, and appear to go either way morally speaking. They seem more like talented sex oriented energy vampires, without actually needing to take energy. Considering the character this happens to, this is most ironic, and a major plot point.

* In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'', it's strongly implied that Dana Barret, while possessed by Zuul the Gatekeeper, had sex with Louis Tully, who was possessed by Vinz Clortho the Keymaster, in order to free BigBad Gozer. In fact, a deleted scene from the movie has Venkman explicitly asking Dana if she and Louis "did it".
** Almost certainly related to an earlier, often deleted exchange.
-->'''Zuul/Dana''': I want you inside me.
-->'''Venkman''': It sounds like you've got at least [[SplitPersonality two or three people in there]] already... might get a little crowded.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' has Pon Farr - every seven or eight years Vulcans get a hormone craze that is generally only to be satiated by sex. Either they [[MateOrDie do or die]], literally. Fortunately, [[spoiler: the holodeck version counts]]. Or [[spoiler:they find an alternative way to give said Vulcan similar emotions to sex, e.g. extreme anger/rage/sadness, like believing that you killed your best friend]].

* ''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.
