* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/Daredevil2015'', Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios pull this off to throw off some guards while stealing secrets on Roxxon's dealings with the Hand from the Yakatomi building. Of course, it's more like Fake Out Fornication, but the effect is still the same.
