** Amy's "experiment" to make Sheldon more attracted to her included "playing doctor, Franchise/StarTrek Style".
** The A plot of The Holographic Excitation can basically be described as Leonard explains sciencey stuff and Penny jumps his bones for it.
** The Egg Salad Equivalency ends with Penny revealing she bought a pair of nerd glasses in order to invoke this. Leonard's skeptical at first...and then she puts them on.

* Exploited when AJ Lee was sending {{Wrestling/Kaitlyn}} fake messages from a secret admirer. The messages would contain ''Simpsons'' quotes and other various references to things Kaitlyn liked. Behind the scenes, this was Kaitlyn's idea herself; the script called for stock presents like chocolates and jewellery - but she suggested it be things she herself would be turned on by.

* A female Inquisitor romancing Cullen in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' can advance the relationship by joining him for a game of chess. The romance will move forward regardless of who wins, as long as the flirt dialogue options are selected; but if she actually beats him, by choosing the 'play fair' option, he seems particularly interested and wants a rematch.

* ''Series/{{Quark}}''. [[TheSpock Ficus]] is unaffected by the LotusEaterMachine in "Goodbye Polumbus", until he sees a beautiful woman in NerdGlasses with whom he can discuss EEqualsMCHammer.

Cut to her lying next to each Fiscus, [[SmokingHotSex puffing on a cigarette]]. And he hasn't even got to calculus.

* Given a twist in Creator/PhilFoglio's ''ComicBook/XXXenophile'': in the story "Hold That Thought", a pretty young female scientist, overly absorbed in her work, is exposed to a [[{{Phlebotinum}} "semi-virus"]] that essentially crosswires her sexual drives with her higher cortex functions, ie she literally gets turned on by her intellectual work, and [[ADateWithRosiePalms more direct stimulation]] helps her solve complex problems.
