* This was echoed in the early stages of TheTroubles when British soldiers on local leaves in StrokeCountry were seduced by girls pretending to be from sympathetic parts of Northern Ireland. When the girl got the lonely squaddie "home", he ran into Provisional IRA terrorists who shot him - she was the bait. British soldiers were ever after warned about this sort of thing. The tactic has also been used by Protestant terrorists, angry about having their legitimate and understandable right to chastise their Catholic neighbours being constrained by unsympathetic security forces: in this case humiliation rather than murder was the objective.

** A sub-plot in '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11536013/1/Hyperemesis-gravidarum Hyperemisis Gravidarum]]''' concerns what happens when people belonging to the diplomatic communities of two Embassies, representing countries locked in a bitter state of mutual hostility, try the Honey Trap on each other ''simultaneously''. The two people involved decide they really like each other ''anyway'' and elect to have a damn good time, whilst the two Ambassadors collude in using it as an informal, reliable and mutually beneficial channel of communications for sharing the sort of information that would ''prevent'' their nations ending up in a bloody and ruinous war. Again.

* Similarly, in ancient China, beautiful women were often sent as peace offerings--even if they didn't act as spies, they often did at the very least distract their targets from their usual duties and inspire jealousy among the other men (and women) of the court. (It's why TheThirtySixStratagems advises the utility of such women.)

Compare TheVamp and FemmeFataleSpy, the two character types most effective at this. See also GoSeduceMyArchnemesis and ChainedToABed. May start with TheSchlubPubSeductionDeduction. Also #31 of TheThirtySixStratagems. Has nothing to do with actual honey... usually. For extra messiness, can be followed up with InLoveWithTheMark or HighHeelFaceTurn. If it's being performed by a policewoman to catch criminals, it's more likely a DirtyHarriet. For LighterAndSofter variations, see IHaveBoobsYouMustObey and FavorsForTheSexy. Not to be confused with the InnocentInnuendo that is AgentProvocateur; that job is actually very, very unsexy.

* [[spoiler:Kaworu Nagisa, the seventeenth angel]] in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Although they never quite did it in either, he seemed a little more effective in the anime than in the manga; in both, [[spoiler:being forced to kill him]] set off the series' biggest HeroicBSOD.
** In the VisualNovel, [[spoiler:Mana Kirishima]] was also supposed to be this [[spoiler: for the Japanese Self-Defense Forces]] but [[spoiler:ended up [[BecomingTheMask falling in love with Shinji for real]].]] Just like with the above, much heartbreak was to be had at the end.

* This is explicitly described as one of the last tests for the recruits in Film/KinsgmanTheSecretService. All three remaining recruits (yes, even the female) are told their goal for the night is to seduce and get to know, "in the biblical sense," the same young woman. [[spoiler: It's a cover for the real test, which involves them being drugged, kidnapped, and interrogated about the Kingsman. The real test is if they'll give their lives for the organization, or spill their guts under threat of death.]]

* [[spoiler:Monica]] from ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' acts as Riff's girlfriend in order to get information for Chilus's cult. Oddly, her ability to keep Riff ensnared seems to be based not so much on sex appeal as "acting like a random nutcase."

** Another girlfriend of Riff, [[spoiler:Sasha]], also played this role against him for Hereti Corp. Riff actually came to believe he loved her, only for her to attempt to assassinate him. She also faked a relationship with a man named Tommy, even to the point of being married for 5 years, only to leave him after Hereti Corp successfully out-lobbies the senator Tommy was working for.
