* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': On this very wiki, people have wondered how three ultra-powerful Saiyans (Goku, Vegeta, and eventually Gohan) manage to have kids with three human women (Chi-Chi, Bulma, and eventually Videl). Of course, it's not like they had any other options for choosing mates, as no female Saiyans survived.
** However, the characters in Dragon Ball Z have to power up before they can use their full power. Even prior to the Cell Games, which is when Goten was conceived, Goku was able to master the basic Super Saiyan form to the point where he could control his strength in said form at all times. Basically, if they have to power up to become stronger, they can probably power down until they are at average human strength, and even if they do not power down for 'intimate moments', they also seem to have a great deal of control over their power level. As in, they can pick up an apple without crushing it, or open a door without taking it off the hinges, etc..

-->'''Jen''': And if things get too... you know, just use the safe word.
-->'''John''': No kidding. I've got a few more "safe words," like "Ow!" and "Dear God!" and "Crushed pelvis."

* In ''Series{{Supergirl 2015}}'' fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/9189325/chapters/20854411 A Favor Among Friends]]'' Kara considers to have sex with Mon-El because being invulnerable he's the only unrelated male she can have sex with.
-->But the real problem about being a girl from Krypton on a planet orbiting a yellow sun, is the invulnerability. The imperviousness to outside forces trying to penetrate… yeah… Kara cringes at the thought, because she’s not just invulnerable to speeding bullets and randomly tossed street signs. She’s invulnerable to all of it.\\
'''All''' of it.

** The fact that they can suppress their power levels, probably means they can chose to be weaker than they normally are.

** It's worth noting that in this series we do see the children of superheroes and {{Muggle}}s, including the CaptainErsatz versions of Comicbook/{{Superman}} and Comicbook/TheHulk, so clearly there's some way around this trope.

The trope also seems to assume sex is mainly or only involves a (traditional, heterosexual) missionary position, versus the couple being more, well, imaginative about positions, activities, etc. (and thus finding ways around such problems).

* There's a particularly unfortunate psionic example in Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''[[Literature/TowerAndTheHive Damia]]'', in which the powerfully-telepathic Damia accidentally destroys the mind of her first sexual partner through PowerIncontinence while having sex with him. Her father-figure had tried to warn her of the dangers of sex with less powerful telepaths, but due to [[PoorCommunicationKills his embarrassment at dealing with the subject]] she thought he was talking about normal contraception.

* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'s'' version of Clark had the typical problem with his first love interest Lana Lang. The problem was eventually resolved when Clark was de-powered for an episode. But when his powers return, he actually complains to Chloe about his sex life. By the end of the show's run, he has gained enough control over his abilities that the problem no longer exists. He outright stated that his training at the Fortress of Solitude included learning exactly that sort of control. Apparently Jor-El never expected his son to remain a virgin for life.

* ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'': Kagome is a normal teenage girl, while Inuyasha is a half demon who can lift boulders with one finger and take a sword through the chest without receiving any permanent injuries. He also has razor sharp claws on his fingers that cannot be retracted. While they never do get significantly intimate in the tv series or manga, it's not hard to imagine how this could cause some problems farther down the line as their relationship progresses.
