* The book ''The Mote In God's Eye'' by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle invokes this without the AppliedPhlebotinum. The plot of the novel involves FirstContact with a species of aliens who literally die if they don't mate and get pregnant due to their BizarreAlienBiology. The resulting overpopulation hasn't been very good for their long-term prospects as a civilization.

* In ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' in the episode "[[Recap/StarTrekS2E1AmokTime Amok Time]]" Spock must return to Vulcan and mate or he will die. Apparently all Vulcans go through this process (known as ''Pon Farr'') every 7 years. The situation is subverted when Spock believes he has killed Kirk and finds he's no longer in the mood. [[EroticAsphyxiation Or is it?]] ([[FanficFuel This episode launched more]] SlashFic [[FanficFuel than you can even imagine]].) Try just "[[TropeMaker launched]] SlashFic in general". Vulcans have to have sex or they'll die. Spock rolls around in the sand with Kirk, [[EroticAsphyxiation chokes him out]], and he's fine. Logic dictates that rolling in the sand with Kirk and choking him out must constitute a sex act.

Incidentally it isn't just sex itself he needs; Nurse Chapel made a pass at him in the episode (she wasn't trying to take advantage, she just does this every other episode) and was violently rebuffed.

* One AsTheWorldTurns fanfic has has Luke and Reid snowed in and have to get warm. It turns out Reid actually had that planned all along. Reid's a doctor, so Luke believed the having to keep each other warm excuse.

** On ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' they solved Tuvok's pon farr with the holodeck, though he was interrupted the first time.
** Another ''Voyager'' episode solved Tuvok's pon farr by having the Doctor SING at him until they could knock him out. Subversion, since it was just a holodeck simulation by the Doctor.
** On yet another ''Voyager'' episode, Ensign Vorik, a Vulcan, mind melds with Torres while in the throes of Pon Farr, thus "infecting" her with it. Paris agrees to do the deed to cure her, but Vorik is infatuated with Torres and challenges Paris to a ritual fight for her. Torres is having none of that, so she decides to fight as Paris' champion. She and Vorik end up fighting each other, thus purging their Pon Farrs without sex.
** And in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', an alien virus caused T'Pol's Pon Farr to manifest early. Unlike earlier examples, instead of growing general irritability and irrational anger she acts like a cat in heat. A cure was found before she could convince someone to do the deed. In the MirrorUniverse, however, Tucker does make reference to "helping" her with that problem.

* Played straight in Sherman Alexie's short story ''The Sin Eaters'', where the narrator is [[ShotaCon twelve years old]] and all the American Indians are [[PuttingOnTheReich rounded up and placed in facilities]] where they are forced to donate blood and marrow. This is because American Indians have an immune gene of some kind that protects against a virus, or something. They talk about antibodies, and that's all I know. Anyway, the government forces him to breed with a thirty-year-old woman who has already been with several men because [[YouFailBiologyForever the more men she's with, the stronger the child will be]]. That last one, despite failing biology forever, is actually congruent with the myths of some Native American peoples.

* This is -- no, really-- canon in ''Series/{{Skins}}'', with bonus incest: in retaliation for a vicious prank, Josh Stock kidnaps 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.
