* In ''Games of Command'' by Linnea Sinclair, Branden's trying to blend in among Tasha's former coworkers when he spots several who know him personally. He tugs Tasha into an access corridor and starts kissing her to hide his face. Since the couple had gotten together a few days before and broken up a few hours before, Tasha is understandably confused.
* In ''Gabriel's Ghost'' by Linnea Sinclair, Sullivan, Chaz, and Ren are trying to pick the lock on a door in a public hallway. When they hear someone coming, Sullivan takes the chance to steal a kiss from Chaz, and silences her protests by claiming they need an excuse to be standing around in a hallway. The passerby laugh and tell them to get a room, and Ren apologizes claiming it's the couple's honeymoon.

* In ''In the Belly of the Bloodhound'', part of of the ''BloodyJack'' series, Jackie Faber and her ArchNemesis Clarissa are taking advantage of a diversion to look for possible escape routes, IIRC. Hearing someone coming, Jackie grabs Clarissa and makes out with her. Passionately. A MinionWithAnFInEvil walks in on them, causing them to be MistakenForGay.

* Used near the beginning of the ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' novel "For the Love of Evil." When Parry rescues his wife Jolie, he kills the guards in the tent. A minute later, when a guard pokes his head in, Parry uses hypnosis to convince the guard he is the leader (whom he has killed) and says "I am not yet finished with the wench. Leave me alone until I am." This buys him a little time to escape with Jolie.

* At the beginning of ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga The Warrior's Apprentice]]'', Miles and Elena do this twice in rapid succession. The first time is intentional: Miles convinces an armsman that they're sneaking into the library to make out, rather than to break into his father's secure terminal. Shortly thereafter, both their fathers walk into the room, and Miles' attempts to make it look like they're rehearsing a play just make it look ''more'' like awkwardly-concealed sex. Complications ensue.
** In ''Ethan of Athos'' Elli Quinn wants to make sure her scheme to get a pair of Cetagandan intelligence agents arrested goes as planned, so she drags Ethan into a convenient alcove near the agents' rooms and enacts this trope. Ethan is a bit perturbed since he's from a male-only planet with religious beliefs that women are the source of all sin and temptation, but he manages to play along.

* ''Film/TopSecret'', a farcical AffectionateParody of action movies set in WorldWarII, takes it in a bit of a different direction: when a patrol of soldiers looking for them happens by, the young protagonists hide in each others' faces in a park crowded with other couples making out.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' has an example where kissing is actually ''weaponized'': the resident ProudWarriorRaceGuy Zentradi who live apart from their women and reproduce through cloning. When Misa and Hikaru (Minmay and Kaifun in TheMovie) are ordered to kiss by Britai who have no idea what kissing is, the two comply and give a ''[[FreakOut nasty]]'' HeroicBSOD to every single Zentradi in the room.
** The third episode of ''Macross7 Encore'' is essentially a large shoutout to the original ''Macross'' series but this time, it's Milia and Max doing the kissing and the targets are Meltran (female Zentradi). Reactions are the same.
