* 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.

* ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} #1'' ([[{{New52}} of the 2011 DC Relaunch]]) featured an example of this, given that during Catwoman and Batman's encounter he seems very reluctant at first. In the words of Linkara, "[[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization Because it's not rape if he consents eventually]], [[SarcasmMode right]]?"

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': In ''Our Mrs. Reynolds'', Saffron goes into Mal's room and starts trying to get him to sleep with her, even though he repeatedly says he won't. It's zigzagged back and forth--Mal does want to sleep with Saffron, but refuses to do so until she convinces him that she's doing it because she wants to, and not because she believes he has the right to do so regardless of her consent. [[spoiler:And when it's revealed that she just did the whole thing for fun and screwed over and tried to kill Mal and his crew, he was disgusted.]]

* Adam and Yvonne in ''Series/BeingHuman''. Although Adam is actually a 47 year old vampire so no statutory rape actually occurred, Yvonne, a middle aged woman, entered into a sexual relationship with him believing he was a 14 year old. Yet she is portrayed sympathetically and their relationship as ultimately a good thing. There's also the fact that [[spoiler:as a succubus, Yvonne brainwashes any man that she touches into being madly in love with her, regardless of how he would feel otherwise. Granted [[BlessedWithSuck she has no control over it]] and breaks down when she realizes that the guy she thought was her soulmate was just brainwashed into loving her, but it's initially PlayedForLaughs and it's kind of glossed over that the men who fall for her and eventually sleep with her ''die''.]]
