* The metabolism of male insects in breeding season is so high that if mating is not utilized to have an outlet for it, so to speak, he would literally die of hyper-exertion. [[ScienceMarchesOn It was once thought]] that, unfortunately, in the infamous case of male praying-mantises and black widow/redback spiders, their lady-loves' metabolism is ALSO so high that if they do not make a delicious snack out of their husbands right after consummation, they would die of starvation on the spot before they can give life to the newly inseminated eggs. In the case of the preying mantis, the cannibalism turned out to just be stress from being in a captive and unnatural situation.
* Female Ferrets bleed unstoppably when they're in heat, so they need to either be mated or be fixed or they may die from the blood loss.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', it's revealed that the only way to kill the Archdemon permanently is for Grey Warden to deliver the killing blow, preventing the Archdemon's from [[BodySurf body-surfing]] to the nearest Darkspawn [[spoiler: and instead forcing it into the Grey Warden, [[HeroicSacrifice killing them both]].]] However, [[spoiler: Morrigan offers a way out by performing a BloodMagic ritual with either a Male Warden or Alistair/Loghain, impregnating her with a child who will absorb the soul of the Archdemon in their place, but free from all the corruption of the Taint.]]

* In the first volume of ''VisualNovel/{{Nekopara}}'', Chocolat and Vanilla trick Kashou into believing this is the case for their species. When he finds out otherwise, he's a bit irked.

* 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.]]
