* For a harem series that wears its fanservice on it sleeve, ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' actually does a very good job of subverting this. While plenty of girls in [[HaremSeeker Issei's]] harem would love to jump him [[MomentKiller if they didn't keep getting interrupted]], this only starts after they've developed an emotional attachment to him. When approached by a girl without this affection ([[spoiler:Rias desperately trying to make herself unmarriageable, Akeno [[SexForSolace trying to cope]] with her family issues]]), if feels so wrong even a grade-A pervert like Issei turns them down.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Combining {{HBO}}'s penchant for NotSafeForWork content with the source material's mentality that sexuality is integral to the human condition definitely results in this trope. The show helped popularized the term "{{sexposition}}," many scenes are staged in Littlefinger's brothel, bastard children are common, and sex and sexuality are frequent plot points. Specific instances include:
*** The adulterous {{Twincest}} between Jaime and Cersei has vast implications for the entire continent.
*** Daenerys' change in sexual position is her first major instance of CharacterDevelopment.
*** Melisandre's magic is sometimes powered by sex.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has this to a degree; pretty much every member of the main cast and a good chunk of the villains have been shown post-coitus at some point. Rich Burlew puts it this way: "it's a world with 100% gender equality, a known afterlife, clerics that can cure any disease, and rampaging monsters around every corner."

Apparently, [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny this was something groundbreaking at the time]]: typical sitcoms were either [[WorkCom workplace-centered]] or [[DomCom family-centered]]; no one had ever really done a show about the lives of adults without long-term family plans or commitments before.
** When the series finally ended, a group of fans sat down and re-watched the entire run beginning to end over several days. Over the course of the series, Jerry alone had something like 72 sexual partners.
* On ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' Ted views himself as in a sexual dryspell after going five months without sex, until he finds out his current girlfriend, Stella, hasn't had sex for five ''years''. He actually has a mini-freakout over this, since when he and Stella ''do'' have sex, he's worried it will be her "virginity: [[{{Sequelitis}} the sequel]]."

* The title character of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'': A common plot is for Frasier to meet a woman, go on a date with her and end up in bed, all in a single week (although, due to the hijinks that inevitably ensue, things rarely go as planned once they get there). It's a ''very'' common plot. Made all the more jarring by the fact that Frasier is depicted as a stuffed shirt (in other words, not the kind of person you'd think would get a lot of action), and often complains about his bad luck with women.
** Not to mention all the jokes about Roz's [[ReallyGetsAround very healthy sex life]].
** Much is made of the fact that Daphne and Donny date for a ''whole month'' before having sex.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' averts the trope. In the seven-year series, Buffy herself has a total of four sexual partners (Angel, Parker, Riley and Spike) and Satsu in Season 8, Willow has three (Oz, Tara and Kennedy) and Xander has two (Faith and Anya, not counting [[RunningGag demonic seductions with intentions on his life]]). Of those, only Parker and Faith were one night stands, as both of them abandoned the regular character they slept with after they were finished; all other relationships evolved out of long-term friendship and/or dating (Or loathing, in the case of Spike) and each involved approaching the subject, following through, dealing with the aftermath, and all the appropriate emotions that come with. Despite all this, however, the characters treat each other and themselves as though they were playing the trope straight, complete humorous "Has anybody here not slept with anybody else?" situations when they explain their past relationships to somebody new.
** However, it's implied strongly that within some formed relationships, sex was plentiful. Namely: Willow and Tara; Buffy and Riley [[note]]This couple's rutting habits became a plot point for an episode[[/note]]; Spike and Buffy; Xander and Anya. Appropriate, considering they were mostly young adults during their college years.

* ''Series/ThirtyRock'' generally plays this straight, though not to as much of an extreme as many of the shows on this list. It was memorably subverted in the Season 5 opener where Liz's boyfriend Carol, a pilot, freaks out over the licentous life he leads of dead-end sexual relationships with women in random cities all around the world, declaring that he's had so many of these torrid encounters he can't even count them all. He ends up admitting that the exact number is six- comically low by TV standards, but very much an above-average number in RealLife.

* Played straight, zigzagged, and subverted on ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', depending on the characters. Al usually doesn't want to have sex with Peggy, who'd be perfectly happy doing the deed with Al more often; ironically, women tend to hit on him ''a lot'', but he always turns them down. Bud ''tries'' to have sex as much as possible, but his lack of success means he usually ends up scheduling ADateWithRosiePalms, although it seems he's often the choice for girls who want a last fling of some sort. Kelly regularly does the deed with assorted sleazebags and degenerates. Marcy routinely had very kinky sex with both her husbands. Other than that, the trope seems played straight with ''every'' single adult.
* The promiscuity of [[TheKirk Captain Kirk]] in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' qualifies for this trope if one regards kissing the [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe space]]-[[GirlOfTheWeek babe of the week]] as [[BoldlyComing shorthand for sex]] during an era of more conservative media standards. Much of the rest of the primary crew also had their [[UnusualEuphemism moments of shore-leave]] on occasion.
** The ironic thing is that this only happens in a few episodes, but it's notable that it happens in just about every episode that it can, like the ones where they aren't dealing with Klingon or SpaceX, with the exception of Space Hippies.

** It's also noted by a present-day member of a web forum from America that this is apparently exaggerated in-universe outside of America, at least with regards to how widespread it it; in something of a reflection of contemporary social mores in modern America in OTL, it's noted that while the major cities on the East and West coasts such as New York and Los Angeles tend to be very socially liberal (and thus more of a reflection of this trope), the Midwest and the South, while still perhaps more liberal than they are in real life, still tend to be more socially conservative about these sorts of things.

Characters in contemporary fiction tend to have ''lots of sex'', in lots of different varieties, with lots of other characters. So much so that even your typical HollywoodDateless is liable to have as many sexual partners over the course of a series as most real people have in their lifetimes.[[note]]For the record, a 2007 US survey indicated that the average American man has seven sexual partners in his life while the average American woman has four; only 29% of American men and 9% of women have had more than fifteen partners, indicating that the number is actually rather lower than on television, and that [[MyGirlIsNotASlut somebody must]] [[AManIsNotAVirgin have lied]].[[/note]]

** Except for Gary... [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption Poor Gary]], who [[AManIsNotAVirgin dreamed]] dreamed of joining this club. He did have lots of [[ADateWithRosiePalms dates with Rosie Palms]] though. It didn't actually help much when his life underwent a dramatic shift in the first few strips, from living with two gay guys (whom he hadn't recognised as such) to having a practical harem of women around who were all very attractive, mostly very comfortable with their sexuality, and in some cases bisexual, and who were mostly living the trope.

* ''Manga/BGataHKei'' parodies and subverts this as part of its aesop. The main character Yamada is an attractive and popular high school student who's still a virgin, and she's fixated on the idea of having lots of sex to the point where her goal is having 100 sex partners, but she's so clueless about sex, romance, and flirting that she can't even seduce her shy, awkward classmate Kosuda without making a fool of herself. She's WrongGenreSavvy by trying to be ThePornomancer in a {{Hentai}} story, and when frustrated she assumes that everybody except her is having lots of sex, when in reality everyone her age is going through the same kind of difficulties with the opposite sex.
