* In ''Literature/TheNarrows'', Harry and Rachel do some mattress dancing the day after they are nearly blown up by Backus's booby trap bomb.
--> “We fell onto the bed and made survivors’ love. It was quick and maybe to some degree even brutal—on both our parts. But most of all it satisfied the primal urge in both of us to fight death with life.”

* Notably averted in the punishments of the lustful, the sodomites, and the pimps in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''. All of these punished for sexual sins do not suffer sexually charged tortures universally employed in other depictions of {{Hell}} from the time of medieval tapestries to [[VideoGame/DantesInferno video games by Electronic Arts]].

* In Myth/CelticMythology, the Morrigan is goddess of both fertility and war. Sex and death, right there, what more do you want?
** Astarte of Phoenician, Syrian, Canaanite and later Myth/EgyptianMythology was also a goddess of fertility and war, parallel to Ishtar.
*** She may (or may not) also be Anat (though she might also be her sister, at least according to Egyptians) who is an ancient Semitic goddess, for whom it is said that calling her violent "is like calling a tsunami wet". She is a goddess with dominion over love, sex, war, battle, fertility, maternity and death--to the point it is said she ''killed'' death for crossing her. Despite that, she's said to be a benevolent goddess, if an easily enraged one.
* Myth/ClassicalMythology had ''intercourse'' of sex and violence, what with the god of war Ares always running off and having affairs with the goddess of love Aphrodite.
** Eros, the God of Love, ''was'' this trope. Ancient Greek soldiers would pray to him before going into battle; sex and violence were understood to be two sides of the same coin.
-->'''A seer:''' ''(describing Eros to [[ArrangedMarriage his fiancée]])'' ...[he's] a monster whom neither gods nor men can resist...
** Aphrodite actually ''[[{{Bowdlerization}} once]]'' was this, before the Greeks got uncomfortable with the idea. How much was she this trope? She was associated with Astarte ''and'' Anat. This explains her relationship with Ares very well...
* [[Myth/MesopotamianMythology Inanna/Ishtar]]: Sumerian/Babylonian Goddess of love, fertility, and war.
* The Voodoo god of death is also the god of sexuality... in addition to being a great healer, [[FridgeLogic which seems a little at odds with the "death" thing...]]
** ItMakesSenseInContext--if he decides not to dig your grave, you'll recover... instead of simply not actually dying.
* Freyja as well was a goddess of love and sex, who had more than her share of martial aspects. In fact, she received the half of the battle-dead not claimed by Odin.
** By some accounts, she gets first pick of the slain, and Odin gets the half she didn't claim.

* ''Film/DemolitionMan'':
---> '''Lenina Huxley''' "There's a well-known, documented connection between sex and violence. Not so much a causal effect, but a general state of neurological arousal. And after having observed your behavior this evening and my resultant condition, I was wondering if you'd like to have sex?"

* There's a reason why it's called ComicBook/SinCity.
** This is a [[AuthorAppeal re-occurring trend]] in the works of Creator/FrankMiller. This also appears in ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain'', ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'', and ''Holy Terror''.

ComicBook/SinCity. There are two things you'll probably remember: prostitutes and strippers and grizzled anti-heroes killing bad guys by the truckload. This is a [[AuthorAppeal re-occurring trend]] in the works of Creator/FrankMiller. This also appears in ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain'', ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'', and ''Holy Terror''.

* Perhaps the whole point of ''ComicBook/LadyDeath'', and by extension a lot of other "bad girl" comic characters. A DarkActionGirl MsFanservice character, pale as a corpse and dressed in leather fetish gear, hacking up demons and other monsters by the dozens every other issue. The covers will usually make this extra blatant by showing her in a pin-up pose on top of a pile of skulls.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, the Morag Tong is a legal (at least within Morrowind) [[MurderInc assassin's guild]] sanctioned by the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmeri]] government who operate in service to Mephala, a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] associated with [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]], murder, [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder betrayal]], and sex. As devout followers of Mephala, members of the Morag Tong are encouraged to mix sex, betrayal, and murder together. This makes them excellent FemmeFatale and LadyKiller assassins.
