** These two first meet when the woman turns up to pass on a message. She refuses to leave immediately however, pointing out that if his house is under surveillance, it will be obvious that an exchange of information has taken place, but if she leaves several hours later [[SexDressed with her clothes and lipstick in disarray]], the agents outside will get a different idea.

She then offers to avert the 'fake' part of this trope, but [[DevotedToYou he's in love with someone else, so declines]].

* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'', Shelena notices that they are being watched while they are investigating Lliotarel's chamber and immediately drags Veres onto the bed and pretends to kiss and undress him. Because what else would two strangers be doing in the elven king's bedroom, right? Veres is alternately freaked out and angry as he's got a hard time believing it's not just another one of Shelena's games.

* In the mini-series ''A Man Called Intrepid'' a male-female spy team supposedly disappear into an office for a little nookie, but actually to rifle through the files. When the guard becomes suspicious, the woman starts to fake moans of passion, whereupon he just smirks and goes back to his post.

* In a ''Series/GetSmart'' episode, two characters [[ShoutOut clearly based on]] Steed and Peel pretend to kiss while staking out Max's apartment. They have to do this for a while because Max gets distracted watching them make out; when Max finally enters his room, the "Steed" character admits that he quite enjoyed that.
** In another episode, Max does this with a female courier when someone walks past their park bench rendezvous. Then he claims they're coming back and goes in for another round.



* ''Series/BetweenTheLines''. Mo is infiltrating an AnimalWrongsGroup, and tells them she's going to do the [[TheSchlubPubSeductionDeduction Schlub Pub Seduction]] trick on a security guard working at the animal testing centre they intend to attack. The security guard is actually an undercover Naylor, who's embarrassed as Mo is both his colleague and a lesbian. Eventually Mo has to tell him to start pawing her as "I'm supposed to be seducing you, not taking you by force."



* In ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'' Jake and Amy use one of these to get the drop on two people they need to arrest. As they're currently both attempting to deny their attraction, the switch from making out to arresting is a little over-emphasized:
-->'''Amy:''' Freeze! We are police colleagues!\\
'''Jake:''' You're under arrest! This is a work event!



-->'''Buffy:''' This is The Initiative, Xander. Military guys and scientists do not make out with eachother.
-->'''Xander:''' Well, maybe that's what's wrong with the world. Ever think about that?

* 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.



* ''Series/DoctorWho'' did a time-delayed version in the new series. The Doctor kisses Martha before running away, so that some of his non-human DNA will register on her, and the aliens hunting for it will be held up double-checking that Martha is human, buying him some time.
** Played with in series six when the Doctor and Craig get teleported onto a cyber-ship. The Doctor, trying to reverse the teleport, sees a Cyberman, and decides to distract ''Craig'' so he won't panic. He immediately wraps himself around Craig and tries to kiss him; Craig turns him down on the grounds that he's already taken.
* ''TheFridayNightProject'' has a short-lived segment in its first series called "The Inappropriate Kissers", where two people would be planted in a real-life situation, (in one instance, next to an interviewer at a film premiere) merrily necking away. Supposedly, in RealLife ''he'' was very much into ''her'', but ''she'' couldn't stand the sight of ''him''.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. John Reese and fellow CIA assassin Kara Stanton pretend to be a courting couple who 'accidentally' stumble into the wrong hotel room where their targets are. After killing them, Stanton complains that Reese doesn't do any actual kissing.



* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. In "Preemptive Strike" Ensign Ro goes undercover to infiltrate a Maquis resistance group, and passes on her information by meeting Captain Picard in a bar, where she tells him to pretend he's buying her sexual services. The whole thing is presented as quite uncomfortable for both of them, as while Ro shares some BelligerentSexualTension with Commander Riker, she's never had any with Picard whom she regards more as a stern ParentalSubstitute.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Prime Factors" an alien wants to trade some technology Voyager needs, but without his superior knowing. He arranges a secret meeting via a [[BoldlyComing local woman that Harry Kim is seeing]], as no-one will think it strange if she takes him off somewhere private.

* In one of the ''SweetValleyHigh Kids Christmas'' books, one of the twins does this after she and a boy she was helping are caught by guards in a restricted area during a party. As neither of them were invited to the party to begin with, she also runs off crying saying "I told you someone would see us." The guards are so busy laughing that neither of them are checked for ID or questioned about why they were in the restricted area.
