* In ''Literature/TheWorldAccordingToGarp,'' the title character is conceived when his mother, Jenny, rapes a wounded, dying man in her care--an act made creepier because the man was mentally devolving into an infantile state and [[FreudWasRight seemed to regard Jenny as a mother figure]]. While male-on-female rape is a constant theme in the remainder of the book, Jenny's female-on-male rape is presented (by the other characters, if not necessarily the author) as a revolutionary act, and is never referred to as rape. In TheFilmOfTheBook, however, someone calls it out as rape.

* In ''Film/StepBrothers'', Dale's stepsister-in-law Alice falls [[LoveMakesYouCrazy madly in love]] with him after he gives [[{{Jerkass}} her abusive asshole husband]] what for. How does she show her appreciation? By cornering him in the men's room, undoing his pants without even waiting for an answer, and [[YourCheatingHeart having her way with him]] via [[SpeedSex rapid]] [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex but satisfying]] sex [[WallBangHer with him up against the wall]]. How does he respond after it's said and done? He says he likes her and thinks she's incredible. In the UnratedEdition, they have another quickie during Christmas dinner - but it seems more mutually consensual.

* In the ''CapcomVSWhatever'' series of games, Morrigan has a new super move named Eternal Slumber. Succubus nature aside, she's the protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' and frequently portrayed as a hero.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Prophecy" we get another bizarre case. Harry Kim is "chosen" as a mate by a burly Klingon female who's significantly larger and stronger than him. Kim makes it clear he has no interest in a relationship, expresses extreme fear of the woman, and even winds up being stalked, but nobody seems to take the matter with any degree of seriousness. Things reach a particularly uncomfortable point when Harry goes to sick bay with bite-marks, indicating abuse, and is given a grossly inappropriate response the audience is meant to find amusing.
--> '''Harry:''' One of the Klingons attacked me.\\
'''Doctor:''' ''(concerned)'' Did you do something to provoke him?\\
'''Harry:''' Not him, her. And she wasn't provoked, she was... aroused.\\
'''Doctor:''' ''(amused)'' Ahhh. I'm not surprised. I've studied the section on Klingon mating rituals in the cultural database.\\
'''Harry:''' Then maybe you can tell me how to convince a female twice my size that I'm not interested?\\
'''Doctor:''' You probably can't. As I understand it, you have two options: kill her or mate with her. Since the first option is unacceptable... ''(hands Kim a form)''\\
'''Harry:''' What's this?\\
'''Doctor:''' Authorization for you to engage in intimate relations with an alien species.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Tania is EasilyForgiven very quickly (about five minutes into part 2 of the episode) for capturing Misawa after forcibly holding him to a ScarpiaUltimatum via wager, and even afterwards, Talia is considered, in-universe and out, to be the TokenGoodTeammate of the Seven Stars, becoming an ''ally'' of the heroes later. In fact, this is one case where the dub version actually made it ''worse''; in the original version, the rest of the cast don't hear ''anything'' when they camp outside the arena, while in the dub, Misawa's screams are clearly audible. (Asuka claims they're dueling again, a case of the writers assuming ViewersAreMorons.) Misawa even [[AbductionIsLove has feelings for her later]] that extend into the third season when she appears again.

* Creator/{{DC|Comics}} also had a case of reverse DudeShesLikeInAComa between two of the founding members of the Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}. Saturn Girl tried to use her telepathic powers to bring Cosmic Boy out of a coma. It appeared that she'd succeeded, but instead she was subconsciously animating and controlling his comatose body; during this period they began dating, and Cos woke up at their wedding. This admittedly was not treated as "okay" so much as it was forgiven because Saturn Girl did it ''subconsciously'', not on purpose.

* A really horrific Marvel example: In ''Avengers West Coast'' #56, Wanda, ComicBook/TheScarletWitch, had Agatha Harkness, [=USAgent=], TheWasp, and WonderMan under a spell that kept them immobilized. Wanda, who was suffering a mental breakdown at the time, ripped the shirt off of Wonder Man and forced herself on him while he screamed "No! NO!!!" Later, US Agent asked Wanda "How could you hurt him like that?" and Wasp asked "Simon (Wonder Man)...are you...? To which the clearly traumatised Wonder Man replied "Don't ask, Janet. Just don't ask!" Not only was the rape never mentioned again, but Wonder Man and Scarlet Witch briefly dated.

* In ''[[Literature/TheHouseOfNight Marked]]'', Zoey accidentally comes upon Erik and Aphrodite in the hallway. Erik is very uncomfortable and repeatedly says he does not want Aphrodite to give him a blow job, while Aphrodite insists that he does in fact want her and then slashes his thigh and drinks from it--a very sexual act for vampires. However, not once is this ever even thought of as sexual assault--Zoey's problem with Aphrodite isn't that she's ignoring Erik's wishes, it's that giving blowjobs is "skanky" and "letting a guy use you".

* In WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob's review of ''I Spit On Your Grave'', this trope, as well as the [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale Male On Male]] trope, gets discussed as [[Film/TheCinemaSnobMovie Craig, Neil, Nancy, and Candy]] come to the conclusion that the only way to bring some levity into a very dark movie with a very dark rape scene was to reenact/spoof it with Craig as the 'victim' and Candy, Nancy, and Neil as the 'rapists'.

* In ''Literature/TheMahabharata'', Ulupi drags Arjuna underwater and propositions him, threatening to commit suicide after his initial refusal. Even though she's a total stranger, Arjuna considers this romantic and sexy. Compare this to the scene where Durodhyana threatens to rape Draupadi, a show of cruelty so enraging that several other Kshatriya (including Krishna, who is ''literally'' virtue incarnate) declare war on him.
