* The Creator/MarquisDeSade dreamed of this future and extensively [[AuthorTract advocated it through his written works]]. Writing during the time of UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution, he, along with many of his characters, identified as a libertine, one who believes nothing, not even God, should stop one's pursuit of physical pleasure of all types - especially sexual, which was the primary focus of his works. Some were written strictly to offend (''Literature/The120DaysOfSodom''), others to actively promote his viewpoints as said earlier (''Philosophy in the Bedroom''), but virtually all his written works, including what survives that he didn't publish, are marked by extreme erotica not just between consenting adults [[BiTheWay of all genders and orientations]] but also [[{{Lolicon}} between adults and children]], [[GratuitousRape between]] ''[[GratuitousRape non-]]''[[GratuitousRape consenting adults,]] and even [[IncestIsRelative family members]]. He believed such a future was the best path for humanity going forward, and that it should have been an inevitable consequence of the Revolution.

* Probably the case in ''Film/StarshipTroopers'', given how everyone regarded the unisex, communal showers as no big deal.

* Probably the case in ''Film/StarshipTroopers'', given how everyone regarded the unisex, communal showers as no big deal. In the shower scene it was mentioned that you need a [[PopulationControl license to reproduce]], so perhaps contraception is mandatory.

**Arguably, Sade [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]] this trope because he believed that literally nothing, not even mass murder, should be criminalized, as long as such things are committed for the sake of pleasure. Of course, that includes things that don't provide sexual thrills, but he loved integrating torture into his love life, and believed it should be allowed to escalate to murder if that pleased whoever was committing it. His novels are rife with examples of victims being tortured, sometimes to death, by people who derive sexual satisfaction from the act. There's a reason he is the [[TropeNamer namesake]] of sadism, though nowadays most would prefer SafeSaneAndConsensual instead of the depravity he advocated.

See also EternalSexualFreedom for when this is applied to real ''past'' societies, and FetishFuelFuture for the more general trope of "in the future, everyone will share/accept my personal sexual kinks" AuthorAppeal. This trope is also the logical future extension of the EverybodyHasLotsOfSex setting. May involve or allow ExoticExtendedMarriage. Contrast with NoSexAllowed.

** Aside from the Federation, this was the [[PlanetOfHats Hat]] of Edo in ''The Next Generation'' and the Betazoids in the novels, to say nothing of Risa, which has varied from "classy resort planet" to "[[UsefulNotes/LasVegas Space Vegas]]".

** It was supposed to go even further. WordOfGod from RidleyScott is that casual sex is rampant in ships such as the Nostromo, seeing as how they could be in space for months at a time and there's not a whole lot else to do. A deleted scene had Ripley nonchalantly ask Lambert if she had ever slept with Ash, to which she shrugs and says that he never appeared interested (one of the first hints that Ash [[spoiler: is a robot]]).

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', the Hexarchate, for all its flaws, is rather chill with all sexualities and gender identities, and has nothing against polygamy - one character is mentioned as having multiple children with four partners.

* In the ''[[Literature/AncillaryJustice Imperial Radch]]'' trilogy, the Radchaai have no taboo against casual or non-exclusive sexual relationships, and moreover, don't have a societal concept of gender. While it can be an element of a "clientage" between a higher- and a lower-ranked person, there's a degree of stigma in some quarters against people who appear to be SleepingTheirWayToTheTop.
