* In ''Literature/TheElenium'' this was the punishment of Arissa, the ''very'' wanton sister of the previous king. She was sent to a convent because she couldn't be executed, and made life miserable for everyone there. This ended up backfiring on the main characters. The convent was lightly defended and the nuns were massacred when Arissa's accomplices sprung her.

* In ''{{Webcomic/Blindsprings}}'', the AltText of [[http://www.blindsprings.com/comic/blindsprings-page-two-hundred-and-forty-five this comic]] describes Princess Tamaura as having lived in one prior to being made priestess in place of her sister Aliana, something that earned Aliana's ire. It's also been strongly implied that Tammy is actually a HeroicBastard who was born out of wedlock, suggesting this was another reason she was sent away.

* In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series, Asari with the Ardat-Yakshi genetic defect are given a choice between this trope and execution. That's because Ardat-Yakshi are effectively [[HornyDevils succubi]] and their condition causes them to [[DeathBySex kill people by mating with them]] - and it's addictive. We meet three full-fledged Ardat-Yakshi (codex entries suggest that there's actually a "spectrum"). The first one is an opportunistic, sociopathic SerialKiller and a walking argument for their seclusion. The other two are perfectly normal, moral people.
