** A magical version exists in the form of the Orgasm spell, which is noted as being used primarily for sex work, entertainment, pranks, or (for shadowrunners) a means of non-lethal incapacitation. It's swapped out for the Euphoria spell in later editions, which does the same thing but with less mess.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'' episode "Thanatophobia", a one-shot character named Sybil is shot in the back. So that she isn't paralysed, Trevor fits her with some kind of prosthesis for her spinal cord that needs regular replacement. Being the somehow-lovable kinky bastard that he is, Trevor takes advantage of this each time to make her orgasm repeatedly by stimulating her spinal cord. (In the original TV broadcast, this was redubbed to show him apparently torturing her for fun, because [[ValuesDissonance that would be so much more tasteful.]])

* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'': According to Mikhail, [[spoiler:the MindControlDevice works that way: it conditions the mind through Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning, eliciting feeling of euphoria when the wearer is obedient and dyshoria when the wearer is disobedient.]]

* In the 1994 film about AlbertEinstein ''Film/{{IQ}}'', [[Creator/StephenFry James Moreland]] is doing the experiment with the mouse. There are two switches the mouse can press: one that gives him food and one that gives him this trope. The mouse hasn't eaten in three days. Moreland asks Einstein how this could possibly be the case, and Albert simply gives him [[WhatAnIdiot a Look]].

* While not strictly related to pleasure, personal electroshock therapy units, such as TENS units, can have this effect by providing almost-instant relief for muscle aches and related pain. So, not truly gratification, at least not when used properly (in fact, you [[PowerPerversionPotential cannot buy one]] without a doctor's note), but instant ''relief''.
