* Refrenced in a darkly hilarious interaction between Tim and Lady Shiva in the ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'' miniseries when he goes to Hong Kong. Lady Shiva wakes him up at night for their martial arts training, telling him that she'll bring him to a "[[ImaginedInnuendo whole new world]]". Tim's response? "Um... I don't think I'm ready for this". Lady Shiva then nonchalantly replied that they can do that later, after the training.

* ''Literature/{{Temeraire}}'': When dragon Temeraire matures toadulthood, he grows whiskers around his mouth. Turns they are an erogenous area; as his human [[DragonRider captain]] Laurence casually fondles them, he is ''mortified'' to realize that Temeraire really likes being touched there.

The trope title comes from Cherelle's 1987 R&B hit of the same name. Its video features a breakdancing Film/KingKong. Covers of the song have been done by Robert Palmer and Mariah Carey.

* JudgeDredd has been on the receiving end of this at least TWICE from citizens he's saved. This is an even worse case than normal, because not only is Dredd almost psychotically dedicated to his job to the point where he's basically asexual, but even if he wasn't, American Judges are not allowed to have personal relationships.

* Let's just say when Italy was showing Germany and Japan the ''David'' statue in the ''Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze'' in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'', they weren't appreciating the art. They were imagining Italy as the youth.

* In chapter 39 of ''Kodomo no Jikan'', Aoki-sensei is showing the kids how to calm a cow and milk it--which entails calling its name in a low and soothing manner--while a bra-less (broke it early in the chapter) Houin-sensei stares nervously. It makes her become increasingly turned-on as her crush massages and squeezes the teats of the cow, which shares her given name.
* In ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' the Italy brothers have [[IdiotHair curls]] that act as [[FantasticArousal erogenous zones]]. [[HoYay/AxisPowersHetalia Germany is shown pulling on Italy's more than once]] without having the slightest idea of the reaction it causes. Given their status as OfficialCouple, this is to be expected.

* Take ''any'' fanfiction where you have characters with sexual tension and at one point there is going to be a moment that turns the two of them on. Hot, passionate sex is optional.

* In the ''Literature/{{Outlander}}'' series, Jamie Fraser proves himself something of a master of this trope with Lord John. Isn't his fault that the man has a thing for older guys, amicable chess games and good Lord, that accent. (Unfortunately, when Jamie figures this out, his reaction is not a particularly happy one.)
** Also, both in ''A Breath Of Snow And Ashes''--Lizzie is having a seizure, and of course [[SingleMindedTwins Kezzie and Jo]] have to help her out, right? Of course, Lizzie's treatment borders on IntimateHealing… [[TwinThreesomeFantasy Woops.]] And Phaedre [[spoiler:ends up accidentally turning on Duncan by way of breakfast and some involuntary physical reactions to appealing young women leaning over one in bed early in the morning.]]

* In the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Tape", after hearing a sexy (but joking) [[ArousedByTheirVoice voice message]] from Elaine, George finds he can no longer even sit in a car with her without feelings of The Urge.
** In fact, by the end of the episode, all of the male characters are enamoured with Elaine after hearing the tape.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor definitely has his moments of this in the new series. He's done it to both Martha and Amy--even claiming to the latter he's like a Space Gandalf--but whether it's because of repressed feelings or him just being clueless is up for debate. It's probably a mixture of both.
** Probably both: Noteworthy exchange between the 12th Doctor and Clara Oswin Oswald:
*** Doctor: "Clara, I'm not your boyfriend."
*** Clara: "I never thought you were."
*** Doctor: "I never said it was your mistake."
* Very much PlayedForDrama in the ''Series/{{Buffy the Vampire Slayer}}'' episode [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E10Amends "Amends"]]. [[{{Troll}} The First Evil]] is trying to make Angel feed on Buffy or have sex with her, either of which will turn him evil. Angel encounters Buffy [[BreakingAndBloodsucking in her bedroom]] wearing a [[LadyInRed blood-red dress]], her hair [[WarmBloodBagsAreEverywhere pinned up to expose her neck]], and her lower lip [[ButIWouldReallyEnjoyIt trembling from repressed emotion]] -- he jumps out the window so he won't be tempted to jump on her.

* A common occurrence for [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] (of [[EvenTheGuysWantHim either]] [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer gender]]) in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' trilogy is that s/he will gain an increasing amount of interest from his/her squad mates or other civilians due to frequently having deep, personal conversations with them. Usually, a character Shepard interacts with will drop hints of interest in the commander to trigger the RomanceSidequest the more you choose to talk with them, but the player may have to let down some of their close friends.
** If you so choose, you can make Garrus an instigator of this, since his romance track starts with him talking about one of his "conquests", which Shepard can springboard off of to proposition him. He's genuinely caught off-guard by the offer, before regaining composure and essentially stating this trope:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'', it probably wasn't Big Boss' intention to get Ocelot turned on to torture when he pissed his pants and got his eye shot out. Poor Solid Snake had to suffer for that.
** Big Boss at least did mean for Ocelot to handle his gun fighting technique in a more efficient manner, he didn't however intend for Ocelot to enjoy reloading his gun in combat so much.

* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' there is a scene when Junpei and Akane([[EveryoneCanSeeIt obviously and mutually in love]]) [[ElevatorGoingDown take an elevator ride together]]. Since the elevator goes to deck that is supposed to be flooded Akane tries to tell him she's afraid of drowning, but words it in such a way that he thinks she's talking about sex. At no point during conversation she seems to notice that she's getting his mind in a gutter. [[spoiler: Although in the true end it is revealed that she's a telepath and master liar, meaning it's very likely that she ''did'' mean to turn him on.]]

* In ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'' this is Spinnock's reaction when he learns that innocent flirting with his cousin Faror Hend was a lot less innocent from her point of view.
* Phèdre in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' is an ''anguisette'' and cursed to feel pain and pleasure as one. Any bit of pain will register as pleasure for her. So when she had to get her marque (read tattoo that covers most of her back) worked on she was reduced to an orgasm laden mess. The guy doing the job even complains about how annoying it is to work on someone who is constantly writhing in ecstasy while he's trying to apply the tattoo, just like his grandfather (who did the last anquisette's marque) told him.
