* Europa was ravished by Zeus in the form of a beautiful white bull before [[AbductionIsLove being whisked away to Crete]]. Ouch. Some sources say he just used the bull form to seduce her and carry her to Crete (don't ask how a bull can cross the sea from Phoenicia to Crete), and then turned into a more human form to do the deed; to modern audiences, of course, this just makes it creepier. They had three sons--whether as triplets or in succession is unclear--named Minos, Rhadamanthys, and Serpedon, who were adopted by the King of Crete; Rhadamanthys became king but was kicked out by or fled from Minos, who founded the Cretan royal line.

* Inverted in ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': a struggling writer keeps Calliope (the muse of epic poetry) prisoner so as to keep finding inspiration and regularly rapes her, justifying it as her not being human. His punishment is that he ends up overflowing with ideas for his next novels, unable to remember a single one.

* The story of Jesus' birth from Literature/TheFourGospels is sometimes accused of being this, but ultimately averts this by Mary agreeing to it. The Book of Luke talks about a scene where an angel ([[ArchangelGabriel St. Gabriel the Archangel]]) tells Mary she is going to conceive and bear a son, and Mary is happy about this, saying, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word."[[note]]Although Mary was likely fairly young at the time of conception, [[ValuesDissonance and hence would likely not be legally allowed to decide such things for herself in our time]], there was no such legal age restriction on the books in her time. Remember, back in BibleTimes, there ''was'' no concept of [[SocietyMarchesOn "adolescence" as we have it today]]; you were either a child or an adult, and the delineation was mostly made along lines of ''physical'' maturity (e.g. when a girl had her first period or a boy had his first wet dream). Then too, God is not indicated to have had ''sex'' with Mary in any physical sense of the word, [[MysticalPregnancy just miraculously placed Jesus in her womb to grow]], which was to make a point of His divinity that it could make a virgin give birth. (This was also back before sperm donation became a commonly known practice.) Moreover, compare His waiting for her acceptance (explicitly stated in Luke 1:38) before actually making her pregnant with her society's expectation that she was to be little more than [[BabyFactory a passive vessel for childbearing to her husband]] whether that was what ''she'' wanted or not, and it's downright FairForItsDay.[[/note]]

* In some versions of the myth, Dionysus fell in love with Ariadne and forced Theseus, Ariadneís lover, to abandon her on Naxos, where he picked her up and made her his wife. Ariadne's own feelings on the whole matter are never discussed, but Theseus was so devastated he forgot to change the sail on his ship from black to white. This caused his father's suicide, since the black sail was supposed to mean Theseus was killed by the Minoatur.
* Calypso keeps Odysseus as her lover for seven years, despite his clear desire to return to his wife in Ithaca. Ultimately subverted, when Zeus intervenes and forces Calypso to release her captive.

* Possibly happens in the play ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica''. It [[OrWasItADream may or may not be a dream or vision]] when the Angel appears before Prior, but he claims this is what she did to him, not to mention that she [[OurAngelsAreDifferent had eight vaginas]]. He seems rather blasé when talking about it, especially given he's in love with someone else and gay, but then, the hell he's put through in the first act is most likely much worse.

* According to the Tupi people of the Amazon area of present day Brazil, the sun was outraged when early human society was dominated by women. It caused sap from the curura (or puruman) tree to spray on the breast of a virgin named Ceucy, impregnating her with Jurapari (or Jurupari). He declared war on women and tore down the matriarchy. After his victory, Jurapari set up feasts in which the secrets of menís rule were passed down through the generations. Any women attending were put to death, Ceucy being their first victim. In some versions of the legend, one day Jurupari will find a woman worthy of him and from that day forward, the sexes will be equal.
** In other South American regions, Jurupari is the name of a man-eating spirit of the palm tree. Itís unclear how the two myths relate.

* Myth/NorseMythology doesn't skimp on this version either. Freyr, God of Fertility and Sexuality, got his Giantess wife Gerth by sending over a servant to threaten her loved ones until she consented. Joke's on him, though--during [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Ragnarok]], the sword he gave the servant so he could do his job turned out to be crucial, and without it, he forfeited his life. Schoolar Sigurður Nordal believed it was that very sword which Surtr will do him in with.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12506800/3/The-Unrelenting-Frozen-Seas-The-Trials The Unrelenting Frozen Seas: The Trials]]'' uses this as backstory for [[ChildByRape Jackson Overland]]: his godly mother Khione took a fancy to the demigod Jamie Overland, so she kept him frozen in her palace, awakening him for one hour at times to have her way with him. The guy was left broken and traumatized, which contributed to his suicide after she let him go. Even the other gods are repulsed by what Khione did, more particularly Apollo - as Jamie was his son - but Khione was never punished for it.
