The pattern is always the same: [[RuleOfThree Two minor, innocuous incidents]], and then the whammy: "...and the [[NextThingTheyKnew next thing I knew]], we were having sex."

--> '''Hikari''': "... after what happened with Unit-03 I came so close to losing Toji... Well, I'd only planned on letting him cop a feel, but it all kind of snowballed; I was still ''[[TechnicalVirgin technically]]'' [[DiscussedTrope a virgin afterwards]] but only 'cause the condom in his wallet was past the expiry date."

* Discussed in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'': Jerin doesn't want to do anything that could be considered sexual (like kissing) with a woman, because he knows that one thing could lead to another, and he has to remain chaste to marry well. (Sexually transmitted diseases are a serious danger in that world.)

* Decorated with numerous [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] in {{William Goldman}}'s early novel ''Boys and Girls Together'', where Jenny actually says at one point, "In a book it'd say 'their lips met' and then there'd be a double paragraph break and a line of stars," whereupon-- [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall their lips meet, and there's a double paragraph break and a line of stars]] to imply that the characters had sex.
* A non-humorous version in Creator/HarryTurtledove's second ''WorldWar'' novel ''Tilting the Balance'', as [[spoiler:Barbara Larssen]]'s explanation to [[spoiler:her husband]] of how [[spoiler:she]] and [[spoiler:Sam Yeager]] first ended up sleeping together in the first novel. The phrase is used verbatim. In her defense, [[spoiler:she had reason to believe he was dead, and she and Sam had just ''very'' narrowly escaped being killed, while a soldier next to them was not so lucky.]]

* In ''TheSecretHistory'', Richard Papen achieves this in the narration with the blunt "Matters progressed." (They don't progress that far, however, as a third party walks in and interrupts.)

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy2015'' for GettingCrapPastTheRadar . Peter meets his dad, J'Son. J'Son talks about meeting Peter's mother, him living with her for a while, etc. Peter Squicks out pretty hard as soon as the trope name comes up.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Shinji and Asuka took a shower together a short while after their LoveConfession. They were going to wash each other's backs and they weren't planning on having sex, but then they started kissing, and eventually Shinji was pinning Asuka against the bath wall while they humped each other.
