** Mocked repeatedly in ''Film/TheCreepingTerror'', as the titular monster repeatedly "sneaks" up on teenage lovers.
** The road leading to the house in ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'' is a Lover's Lane - the police spend all their time driving up and down stopping teenagers from kissing... and yet hardly bother with the family who've gone missing in the creepy house at the end, even when the teens ''tell them to.''

* {{Fanon}} has it that this is the true purpose of the astronomy tower in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. The Room of Requirement has also been known to fulfill this purpose.

* {{Fanon}} has it that this is the true purpose of the astronomy tower in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. ''Literature/HarryPotter'', to the point that "The Astronomy Tower" is the name of the [=FictionAlley=] {{shipping}} section. [[note]]FridgeLogic sets in when you realise that most people visit MakeOutPoint at night, which is also when the Astronomy Tower is most likely to be in use for its intended purpose. Then again, the dragon caper in Philosopher's Stone may be seen as precedent of sorts.[[/note]] The Room of Requirement has also been known to fulfill this purpose.

* Also parodied in ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner.'' When Strong Bad and The Cheat get trapped in an old car that doesn't open from the inside, Homestar comes along to "break it up." "All right, young lovers. Move it along! What do you think this is, Make-out Point?"

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' on multiple occasions. Marge and Artie Ziff went to one after their high school prom, though it didn't turn out [[DateRapeAverted quite as planned]]. In another one, when Apu and his wife were having fertility problems, Homer brings them here. "This scenario is guaranteed to cause pregnancy."

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' actually has a really funny episode with this -- it's the one where they all get superpowers. To quote Squidward- "Ah, Makeout reef. Good times, Goood times."
** The CrowningMomentOfFunny of that episode has to be when the villians are terroizing the kids making out there...and inexplicably come across [[spoiler: a guy making out with a PILLOW.]] "Hey man. That's not cool..."

* In the British murder-mystery series ''Jericho'' (not ''that'' Series/{{Jericho}}), a movie theater screening ''TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai'' is full of teenagers crassly making out, indifferent to the portrayals of death and heroism on the screen, as part of the series' general deconstruction of 1950's British society.
* The ''SeventhHeaven'' episode "Let's Talk about Sex" featured a "[=MacArthur=]'s Point," which served to demonstrate that this trope is not very convincing when set in the present day.

* ''ScaryMovie'' of course makes fun of this by having a news crew go to the scene where they suspect a killer to appear. Naturally he does show up and kill a girl waiting for her boyfriend to come back, and then the whole thing turns into a ''[[TheBlairWitchProject Blair Witch Project]]'' spoof as the news crew runs away.

* ''MonstersVsAliens'' has two teenagers trying to make out in their car out in the woods when they are interrupted by the giant alien robot. In a hilarious GenderInvertedTrope, the cheerleader is trying to force her attentions on the high-school jock, and ends up {{Bridal Carry}}ing him to safety when the alien spacecraft lands nearby.
