* Used in the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' short story ''Raistlin's Daughter'', in which a mysterious woman accidentally forms a painful magical connection with the titular character that can only be severed if she bears his child. When she finally tracks him down and gets him alone so she can explain, Raistlin is less than pleased. Of course, they're conveniently alone in a cave in the middle of a blizzard with no reliable source of heat. [[note]][[spoiler:Three guesses as to who lured Cameron away. And wiped both Raistlin and Cameron's minds afterwards. Though she claims that is was because if they knew her race, they'd hate her and the child.]][[/note]]

* In ''WomenOfTheOtherworld'', Karl tries desperately to stay away from Hope, but ultimately is unable to because his inner wolf has chosen her as his mate and he can't bear to be away from her any longer. It gets to the point where he practically jumps her in her apartment (though he ''does'' let her know that at any point she can tell him to gtfo and he'll comply).

* In a second-hand example, the Protectors from Creator/LarryNiven's ''KnownSpace'' stories usually lose the will to live, stop eating, and die if their fertile ''offspring'' die or are rendered unable to mate and breed.

** Played for laughs in ''BoyMeetsWorld'' when Eric and a rather attractive female co-worker with a good deal of out door survival knowledge get trapped in their car. She does this once Eric begins to succumb to the cold (off screen of course, as this is Disney) and explains how they survived later. Eric is mortified that she didn't wake him so he could enjoy being under the cover of a sleeping bag naked with a girl. She does seriously point out that they were in a little more danger than casual sex would permit.

* This is -- no, really-- canon in ''Series/{{Skins}}'', with bonus incest: in retaliation for a vicious prank, Josh Stock kidnapps Tony's sister Effy, overdoses her with heroin, and tries to force Tony to have sex with her before he'll call an ambulance, although he inexplicably (very likely for real-life reasons having to do with Kaya Scodelario's age) backs down rather than make them go through with it.

* The title characters of ''Literature/TheLordsOfSatyr''are half-Satyr men who are stricken with overwhelming lust when the moon is full -- if they cannot discharge this lust at least once before sunrise, they die. Lyon Satyr falls victim to a sleep spell at exactly the wrong moment, forcing another character to rape him to save his life -- even then, complex rules about what counts as 'mating' mean that he does not fully recover until his lover Juliette has sex with him.

* In a yaoi called ''AnimalX'' a race of reptile like people need to breed to save their race, the only problem is there are zero females and they don't want to mix blood with humans, so when one of them does find a guy [[spoiler: who turns out was a girl at birth (even though no one told him)]] and he has their blood, well the whole thing turns into this guy who didn't even know he was a girl being nearly raped (eaten in one occasion where the guy was hungry and forgot he what he was suppose to do) by every other guy he encounters, plus [[spoiler: he is slowly turning back into a girl.]]

* ''ElfQuest'' has Recognition, a telepathic mating urge that forces elf couples with good genetic matches to mate and have children. Elves who try to resist become sick, though WordofGod is that the elves won't actually die, since that defeats the point. They may feel like they're going to, though.
** It should be noted that (1) these elves are almost always overjoyed with the opportunity to have a child, and (2) there is no such thing as cheating in the ElfQuest world, and more often than not Recognized mates are instantly welcomed into their new family, forming bisexual three-way relationships. Only two cases of elves being unwilling to mate are at all relevant to the plot: the main characters Cutter and Leetah, who are both just being stubborn and end up HappilyMarried; and the young wolf-elf Dewshine with the old bird-elf Tyldak, because Tyldak was a villain at that point. (Ironically, Recognition allowed them to see each other's "true selves", which caused Dewshine to be somewhat attracted to Tyldak - seeing his original body, not his flesh-shaped one - and Tyldak to be absolutely repulsed by Dewshine - seeing her wolf heritage instead of her regular pretty elf face.)

* In one [[Myth/CelticMythology ancient Irish myth]], the goddess, the Morrígan, heartily recommended that the hero Cú Chulainn surrender to her advances for his own health. Cú Chulainn (depending on who tells it either trying to be faithful to his wife Emer or having heard bad things about men who had sex with the Morrígan) doesn't, and in revenge, she orchestrated his death years later, in the form of a MortonsFork that forces him to break one of his two geasa, by offering him a meal of dog's meat. (Cú Chulainn was forbidden from eating dogmeat, and never refuse hospitality) By breaking one geas for another, Cú Chulainn lost his supernatural strength and died in battle the next day.
