* In ''Series/{{V 2009}}'', it is perfectly possible for a Visitor to have sex with a human, as evidenced by two of the show's interspecial couples. One of them, in fact, results in a HalfHumanHybrid, something the aliens thought impossible given the two race's diverse origins.
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Lexx}}'' with Stanley and Lyekka. Although they would have sex if given the chance, Lyekka is a highly evolved plant and has no genitalia. There's also the issue of Lyekka's entire raison d'etre being to seduce other species by appearing in a form desirable to them for the purpose of [[ImAHumanitarian EATING THEM]]. Despite her affections for Stanley, she is still just a plant that might just eat him if they ever tried doing it.

** D'Argo (a Luxan) had a hybrid son (Jothee) with his Sebacean (augmented human) wife. Jothee also lots of human-like sex with Chiana. Zhann (a blue humanoid plant) at one point states that Luxans 'make excellent lovers', implying the two can have sex, but not necessarily reproduce.

** G'Kar ([[spoiler:before his [[CharacterDevelopment spiritual transformation]]]]) ([[spoiler: and after: remember the removable eye on the wedding night]]) is seen as being also a bit of pervert, being into Human women as well as at least one Centauri female. His species, although looking reptilian, are marsupials, including keeping their young in a pouch. As Na'Toth said in her first appearance, "It is not my place to speculate on how ''anything'' finds its way into your bed..."
*** He also propositions to Lyta, but only in order to re-introduce the telepathic gene into the Narn gene pool, implying that not only is it possible for a human and a Narn to have sex, but that viable offspring may result from it.

* ''[[ComicBook/XWing Isard's Revenge]]'': This is discussed in regards to Gavin's relationship with Asyr. While he says "the parts line up just fine" it seems they can't have children. Not surprising, given that Bothans appear to have evolved from canines.



* In the ''Series/BabylonFive'' {{spinoff}} ''Series/{{Crusade}}'', Captain Gideon accidentally acquires a data crystal containing Pak'ma'ra/human porn. The ship's doctor walks in and comments that this shouldn't work. (The Pak'ma'ra are humanoid, but closer to StarfishAliens than RubberForeheadAliens with tentacles around the mouth and a hump that is the female of their species) Then they [[HeadTiltinglyKinky bend their necks ninety degrees]] with a look of horror on their faces. Gideon remarks that technology is a wonderful thing.

* Lampshaded in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' when Kirk fights an alien in the penal colony. Lying on his back, he kicks the alien in a jointed area in the middle of his legs. The alien immediately keels over groaning. When [=McCoy=] says "It's a good thing he had knees," Martia, [[spoiler:the Chameloid]], says, "That was not his knee. Not everyone carries their genitals in the same place." Cue shocked look on Kirk and [=McCoy=].

* In ''Film/TheShapeOfWater'', Elisa uses some interesting hand gestures to explain to an increasingly astonished Zelda why the MermaidProblem was not actually a problem.

* Hilariously averted in Creator/HarryPartridge 's short "Hot Na'vi Sex". Parodying the romance sub-plot Film/{{Avatar}}, Neytiri and Jake (in Na'vi form) are shown just about to have sex. However, Jake is surprised when he is told to use his [[BizarreAlienBiology "ponytail"]]. When Neytiri doesn't seem to understand what a "penis" is, Jake goes on to pull out [[spoiler: what turns out to be a "Soup Drinker", much to Neytiri's annoyance (we even get a full view of it, which is just a [[GagPenis bendy-straw like thing]] coming out of Na'vi!Jake's crotch). Likewise, female Na'vi seem to have an orifice used to play wind instruments where their vaginas should be. Na'vi sex turns out to be, logically enough, intertwining their ponytails.]]

* In ''[[Literature/DreamPark The California Voodoo Game]]'', two conspirators meet at a sleazy hotel called the Mate & Switch. Each room is equipped with sensory-simulation bodysuits that let the wearer experience the sensations of being the opposite gender, making each a '''literal''' MaleToFemaleUniversalAdaptor.

** Asari do not appear to have this problem, mostly because nothing needs to be, ahem, inserted. All you need is a nervous system and they can initiate melding at a touch, although this doesn't stop them from engaging in physical intercourse.

Though they are not prepared to find out personally with each other.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' averted this trope with an April Fools sex supplement. One of the artifacts in the PDF is called the Many-Stalked Flower of Delights, which allows beings of incredibly different physiology to enjoy the pleasures of each other's company. The creator of the artifact was an Eclipse who apparently '''fell in love with a mountain'''. Not the god of the mountain, the mountain itself. The first use of the item caused a [[SomethingElseAlsoRises volcanic eruption]]. Of course, the Many-Stalked Flower of Delights is a Male-to-Female Universal Adaptor, but it's the opposite of this trope.
