* A lighter example in {{Peony}} by Pearl S. Buck. Peony, a young maid in a rich house, is forcefully kissed by an obnoxious guest who lusts after her. Peony runs away in disgust, and a few minutes later she finds the family's son, who she loves. She tells him what has just happened, and offers him her lips, requesting "Take my lips and clean them." He kisses her, effectively "cleaning" her from the assault.

* In ''ComicBook/TopTen: Beyond The Farthest Precinct'', new officer Curlew sleeps with her partner Dust Devil to help him get through his depression at losing his mother.
* ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' has a non-sexual example, with Scandal cuddling in bed with Bane to help him detox from venom, because she had goaded him into relapsing in the first place and thus feels obligated to help him get clean again.



* The ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Mother" involves a therapist accused of sleeping with her patient. The truth is considerably more complicated; the therapist was using roleplay to try and address the patient's considerable issues with his mother, but the patient sexualized that roleplay and convinced himself that their relationship was far more intimate than it actually was.



* Tomohiro helps his friends this way in ''VisualNovel/LEAVEs'', and it works on both [[spoiler: Touka]] and [[spoiler: Matsuri]].

* A LostForever Digimon fic has the grown up Koushirou and Jyou as a couple. Jyou is driven to a powerful HeroicBSOD at the start after [[FailureKnight failing to save the lives of a young boy and his parents]]; he discusses the incident with Koushirou (whom he thought about since he knew about his past, and that's one of the reasons why Jyou splintered so badly), who let him pour his heart out and then helps him relax and forget about it via sex.

* [[Radar/{{Bleach}} VERY strongly implied]] to have taken place between [[CuteBookworm Momo Hinamori]] [[MindGameShip and]] [[ManipulativeBastard Sousuke Aizen]] in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. At some point in the Soul Society arc, Momo goes to Aizen's quarters in the middle of the night so she can ask him for advice, and they have a nice talk... There are two catches, however: not only are both of them in their sleeping robes during the scene, but the next one shows us ''Momo sleeping in Aizen's futon while he leaves his quarters fully clothed in the morning''. The implication was so strong that the scene was {{bowdlerized}} in the anime: Momo shows up in her Shinigami outfit rather than her pajamas, and she's seen sleeping on the ''tatami'' of Aizen's room instead of his bed.

* Subverted on ''Series/InspectorLynley'', when the titular Inspector winds up sleeping with an old acquaintance he hasn't seen in years in a grief-stricken attempt to get over [[spoiler:his wife's murder]]. This not only fails spectacularly but [[spoiler:actually gets him arrested for said old friend's ''subsequent'' murder]], and his partner, Barbara Havers, does not pull her punches when she tells him what a stupid idea she thinks it was.

* On ''Series/{{Sisters}}'', Georgie's therapist plants the suggestion that she was molested by her father. When she consequently struggles with being intimate with her husband, and well as a simultaneous attraction to her doctor, he seduces her under the guise of helping her get over her sexual fears. Pretty soon, their therapy sessions consist of nothing but her coming to his office for sex.

** Subverted in the Japan/Taiwan fic "Cages". A recently colonized Taiwan has sex with ImperialJapan after [[spoiler: having been forced into footbinding/introduced to opium addiction/raped by China]] in the prequel ''Dollhouse'', and then rescued by Japan once he takes her it -- but it doesn't fix her problems. She does start to get better under his care, but the in-fic sex scene between them is both [[spoiler: an allusion to the hardships of Taiwanese "comfort women"]] ''and'' a sign that neither of them really believes in the trope.
*** It's also averted in the case of [[spoiler: Korea and Taiwan.]] They don't go further than kissing, and their relationship goes more by a mixture of FlorenceNightingaleEffect and BroodingBoyGentleGirl.

* Happens ironically enough in the hentai series ''Tokio Kidou Police'' of all things. The main character, Noriko Ibuki, finds it hard to form a romantic relationship with the team member she has a crush on due to her being partially raped during her first time having sex (she planned on having sex with the man to begin with, but he was far more aggressive than she was comfortable with and didn't listen to her pleas for him to be gentler). She manages to overcome this handicap when her female coworker has sex with her in a gentle, caring way, doing so because she has this very trope in mind.
