* Subverted for laughs in ''[[Literature/NightWatch Day Watch]]''. The protagonist Anton, while in the airport, needs a private place to swaps back bodies with his colleague Olga (ItMakesSenseInContext). Finally they tuck into an elevator and perform the ritual, which just happens to be accompanied by some rattling and moans. Then the doors open and out come tousled Olga and ''very'' content Anton who just for good measure readjusts his zipper. The look on the face of some Asian woman waiting for the lift is priceless.

* There is a chapter in the ''NGE'' fanfic ''Curious Rei'' where Shinji and Rei get into an elevator. When it arrives, Rei steps out and Kaji steps in. Elevator goes on... then [[MemeticSexGod Kaji]] makes a grinning remark to Shinji that he [[HyperAwareness knows]] what happened, courtesy of his excellent observation skills. Specifically, he noticed Shinji's shirt is buttoned up wrong, his fly is not done up and -- because those could be explained with getting up late -- the drop of liquid he tried to obscure with his shoe then [[WhatAnIdiot looked down to make sure he caught it]].

** An interesting variation in an episode from season one when Luwuxana Troi is visiting the station and [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl develops a crush on Odo]]. Her typically relentless pursuit of him leads to them being in the turbolift together when the station happens to lose power, trapping them for hours and hours. Odo's unique physiology means that he needs to return to his natural liquid form while they are trapped. At this point in his character arc, Odo is deeply embarrassed and private about such matters, so to make it easier for him, Luwuxana embarrasses herself, exposing her own private side by removing her whig. When they are finally rescued, she's downplays the incident, saying only that Odo was a perfect gentleman who kept her safe and calm. So, while nothing sexual or overtly romantic occurs, and Odo never quite reciprocates her romantic feelings, the two become good friends as a result of the experience. Much later in the series, when they pretend to get married as part of a custody dispute, Odo refers back to these events in his heartwarming vow, citing it as the first time he ''ever'' felt accepted for who and ''what'' he really is.

* ''VisualNovel/UnderTheMoon'' is a [[{{Eroge}} 18+]] [[RomanceGame otome game]] which makes the leap from UncomfortableElevatorMoment to this trope. It's probably the game's most infamous sex scene.

* Subverted in ''Anime/HanaYoriDango'' in that, although Tsukasa and Tsukushi do start developing their relationship a bit more when they get stuck in an elevator and he gets sick and starts running a fever, she isn't really into him yet and neither of them are in any mood for getting frisky. When Tsukasa tries to tell his friends about it later, however, they [[InnocentInnuendo grossly misinterpret]] his saying that "she strangled me all night long!" (with a ''leek'' in order to ''bring down his fever'' he neglected to say) to mean that she was doing some kind of crazy BDSM dominatrix act with him in--of all places--an elevator. [[HeadTiltinglyKinky They're impressed.]]
* Parodied in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', where Misato and Kaji are stuck in a lift. They go to great length to keep their hands off one another, only to end up falling into a compromising position the second the doors get opened.
-->'''Maya:''' ...sex fiends.
** However an earlier scene plays it straight when we cut in on Kaji passionately kissing Misato, while she eyes the elevator reader clicking down to the moment the doors open. Her protests afterwards don't seem very convincing to Kaji.

* ''Manga/FutariEcchi'' crosses this with UncomfortableElevatorMoment, when Makoto is sharing a ride with the Kubotas, a young couple of InsatiableNewlyweds whom recently moved in the building. As they start getting fresh right in the elevator, not minding their neighbor at all, Makoto is nearly dying of embarrassment.



* The 'Turbolift Tales' subgenre of ''StarTrek'' fanfiction. And I believe there's at least one scene in a Trek porn parody movie based on this trope.

* The fifth season premiere of ''{{Castle}}'' closes with Castle and Beckett entering the precinct elevator. Just as the doors close, Castle gasps and glares at Beckett, who just smirks. Although we don't see her hands move, it is clear that she goosed him in the elevator.
