* The "gymnastic sex scene" in ''Film/TheBronze''. Even if you ''and'' your partner are Olympic-level gymnasts (as the two participants in the film are) the scene combines a two-person routine with lovemaking, set to music. Or rather, a well-choreographed routine with the ''illusion'' of sex added to it. (Not something you'd truly want to try, even if you ''are'' trained.)

* The "gymnastic sex scene" in ''Film/TheBronze''. Even if you ''and'' your partner are Olympic-level gymnasts (as the two participants in the film are) you could get exhausted just by ''watching'' the scene scene, which combines a two-person gymnastic routine with lovemaking, set to music. Or rather, a well-choreographed routine with the ''illusion'' of sex added to it. (Not something you'd truly want to try, even if you ''are'' trained.)

Added DiffLines:

* Also played for laughs in ''Film/{{Crank}}'', where the protagonists heart has been stolen, and he needs to constantly maintain an adrenaline rush to keep the artificial replacement going and stay alive. Usually done by fighting bad guys, but it leads to quite a few DeusSexMachina scenes, the one that ''really'' takes the cake being where he's stuck in Chinatown with no such action to be found. He somehow convinces his girlfriend to do the deed right there. As in, in public, on a crowded street. (Possibly, the ''most'' unrealistic part is how willing she seems to do it.)

* The ''Website/CollegeHumor'' video "[[http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1820859 Realistic Hollywood Sex Scene]]" parodies this trope. It's awkward, gross, creepy, and pathetic... and it ''still'' manages to seem just a teensy bit sweet and romantic.

For sexual variations such as sadomasochism, all of the above applies. But since these sexualities are less known, there can ''also'' be heavy doses of bad research, TheyJustDidntCare, and sometimes also AcceptableTargets.

* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'': Subverted. Due to her past traumas and psychological issues, Shinji and Asuka couldn’t have a healthy sex life until they were in their middle twenties (ten years after their first meeting). When they first tried to have sex, it was a disaster because Asuka wanted to get it over with, but Shinji couldn’t go on because he was hurting her.

** the fact that the friend later turns out to have been lying about being a masochist in order to stop the other friend from constantly having to defend him from the school bully just makes it work
* The French comic ''Manga/{{Dreamland}}'' mostly averts this when the protagonist and his girlfriend have their first time. While it "ends well" for both of them, the beginning is quite awkward, with Terrence putting his condom the wrong way at first for example.

* Inverted in ''SmallFavors'': The BDSM is reasonably realistic, while the setting/premise of the comic is totally surreal. The protagonist is desperately trying to hide her [[SafeSaneAndConsensual SSC]] [[CasualKink BDSM]] relationship with a physical manifestation of a part of her subconscious from a physical manifestation of another part of her subconscious - who doesn't catch them, because she's busy getting seduced by the protagonist's neighbor.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/RedEars'': Definitely. Not always to the level of being a SexGod, but most characters have sex like professionals. This is usually only subverted for laughs.

# Inexperience. This includes writers describing [[MostWritersAreMale anatomy that]] [[MostFanFicWritersAreGirls they lack]], and total virgins trying to describe sex at all.

* In ''Film/TheIceStorm'', two teenagers lose their virginity and it's a very clumsy, but brief affair, which is pretty much what losing one's virginity is like.
