* In ''ComicBook/Watchmen'', Dr. Manhattan is in the middle of foreplay with Laurie when she suddenly feels a second pair of hands. He's doubled himself to attempt ThreeWaySex with her but it just freaks her out. Then she discovers that a ''third'' Dr. Manhattan is out in the main room still working on his project, infuriating her enough at what she calls "a pity fuck" that she breaks up with him and storms out.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' Zapp, [[CasanovaWannabe who fancies himself quite the ladies' man]], first tries to charm Leela into sleeping with him, but since Zapp can't tell the difference between charm and sleaze, Leela just flat out rejects him almost immediately. This causes Zapp to break down crying about how pathetic and lonely he really is, causing Leela to ultimately sleep with him because she feels sorry for him. The same episode suggests that Zapp frequently does this [[WoundedGazelleGambit intentionally]] to make women sleep with him, though the same episode seems to suggest this is the first time it actually worked (with a woman).

* In the notorious ''Sins Past'' story arc, Spider-Man's late girlfriend Gwen Stacey was revealed to have gotten pregnant after pity sex with Norman Osborn aka the Green Goblin. Editor-in-chief JoeQuesada thought this more acceptable than the original plot, which would have made Peter Parker the father of Gwen's twins.
* A variation accurs between Rogue and Magneto in the aftermath of the ''Age of X'' storyline when Rogue becomes torn between her feelings for Gambit and Magneto. Gambit states that she has to be ready for him for good before he could be with her again, and that he would be waiting for her when she is ready. After Rogue confronts Magneto about his past, he has a change of heart and tells her that becoming involved with him was a bad idea and that she should return to Gambit. However, Rogue has a change of heart of her own and decides to go with her feelings for one night of passion with Magneto, nothing more, noting:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Inverted when Tyrion takes pity on Sansa by ''not'' having sex that would require exercising his MaritalRapeLicense.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Inverted when Tyrion takes pity on Sansa by ''not'' having sex that would require exercising his MaritalRapeLicense. This is as much out of his own revulsion at the situation as anything; he sees her as a child and has no more sexual interest in her than she does in him.

* ZigZagged in Film/TheLifeOfDavidGale. When Constance reveals [[spoiler: she's dying of leukemia]], David asks if she has any regrets. She tells him she would have had more sex. When he asks how many partners she's had, she thinks, then holds up four fingers. He asks if she wants to "complete the hand." Her response is an incredulous "A pity lay?" He then tells her it wouldn't be pity. Not quite SexForSolace, either. David seems to genuinely care for Constance, although she doesn't seem to be all that attracted to him. Perhaps the pity is on her part, as he's just been [[TheWoobie divorced and fired]].

* Averted in Literature/StrangerInAStrangeLand by Creator/RobertAHeinlein. Jubal Harshaw believes that any of his three secretaries would probably have sex with him out of pity, but he himself is too proud to accept such charity.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire:'' Averted with [[spoiler: Sansa.]] She is fully aware that her total rejection on their wedding night is pretty much killing [[spoiler: Tyrion]], since it's a confirmation of one of his biggest fears, [[spoiler: that his disability means that no woman will ever be attracted to him of her own free will]]. She feels very bad for him... which just makes the prospect of sleeping with him even less attractive. Even that is subverted in that we see from his perspective that he's actually relieved to have the excuse not to sleep with her, since he finds the circumstances of their marriage and her young age distasteful.
