** One of the most (in)famous examples happened when ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} has an affair with ComicBook/EmmaFrost, who was then his therapist after a spectacularly traumatising incident in which he spent several months sharing a body and mind with Apocalypse, one of the most spectacularly evil beings in history. Emma took advantage and manipulated Scott into a relationship. Deserves a special mention because they ''get walked in on by [[ComicBook/JeanGrey his wife]]'' (another telepath). Whoops!

* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', this is well within changelings' power and can in fact be a valuable industry, since they can gain a lot of [[{{Mana}} Glamour]] by making a [[MagicallyBindingContract Pledge]] to use their {{Dream Walk|er}}ing powers for a mortal's benefit. It's not uncommon for Spring Court changelings, who gain extra glamour from [[EmotionEater Desire]], to make their marks' dreams extra-pleasant for a bonus.

* In Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar By the Sword]]'', after Kerowyn meets, falls in love with, and is forced to leave Herald Eldan, he continues their love affair in their dreams. Kero is under the impression that they're just vivid dreams she can't shake, and is rather shocked when they finally meet in person again years later, and he knows things she never told him (while awake). They get past it, though. To clarify, [[spoiler:they've both been sharing the dreams, and are both shocked to discover the fact when they reconnect. This is because they are Lifebonded (destined to be together) and their bond activated when they met. That is, they both continued the affair in the dreams, both thinking it was just dreams]].

* From ''Fortress of the Pearl'', part of ''Literature/TheElricSaga''. While exploring the dream worlds for the Pearl at the Heart of the World, Elric of Melnibone and Oone (the beautiful psychic seer whom helped him enter this realm) have an affair. It's another case where YourMindMakesItReal, [[spoiler:since at the end of the story Oone announces she's pregnant (with twins -- yes, she ''is'' a seer); she keeps this a secret from Elric, though.]]

** Continuing the theme of mental affairs, soon after discovering the one between Emma Frost and her husband, Jean proceeded to MindRape Emma. One of several on Phoenix's record.

* This is the basis behind the {{Hentai}} Manga ''Ne.To.Ge'' (''Lovers in a Cyber World'') by Tamaki Nozomu. A couple of teenagers meets in a virtual reality {{MMORPG}} realistic enough for them to have sex. They later discover that they are classmates, with an already BelligerentSexualTension dynamic. Although this does led to romance (and marriage), unusually for a hentai title the girl insists on "no sex before the wedding"... in the real world, at least.

* Also occurs frequently in {{ComicBook/X-Men}} fanfiction featuring Professor X (typically paired with [[FoeYay his friend-turned-enemy-turned-frenemy]] Magneto), because, of course, Professor X has [[DirtyMindReading certain]] [[{{Telepathy}} powers.]]

* In ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', T'Pol experienced a MindRape that started out as a consensual MentalAffair (the other guy refused to get out of her mind when she'd had enough). She ends up getting a fictional analogue to AIDS as a result. Trip also participated in a mating ritual that involved reading his partner's mind and her reading his, which caused a [[MisterSeahorse male pregnancy]].
