* ''Film/{{Salt}}''. Salt uses an implied version of this trope in an attempt to get Nikolai Tarkovsky to let her inside the room where he's about to launch nuclear Armageddon. It almost works.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', when it looks like the world is ending and solar flares are preventing them from getting off the planet, Fry and Leela decide to spend the remaining time they have doing this. Before they could, however, Amy burst in on the scene saying she figured out a way to survive.

* ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' has a...variant of this in the final episode of the second season. John and [[RobotGirl Cameron]], who have had enough UnresolvedSexualTension throughout the last two seasons that one needs a chainsaw to cut through it, are talking in his room. Cameron confesses her personal fears regarding her instability ([[EmotionlessGirl in her usual blunt way]]), both physically due to internal damage and mentally due to damage to her processors, and then asks John to physically "check" her reactor core by using a knife to cut open Cameron's skin layer and check the reactor with his hand. The subsequent scene plays out like a nervous, virginal sexual encounter, with the intimacy, nudity (Cameron has to remove her shirt so John can cut her skin open) and dialogue making it clear that while there's no ''real'' sex going on, the scene has comparable weight and significance for both of them.

* Narrowly averted in ''ATreeGrowsInBrooklyn'' -- Francie has a brief romance with a soldier who tries to get her into bed with a "could be my last night in America and I've never been with someone I love" story, but she relucantly turns him down, and he goes home to see his mother and fiancee instead. Later it seems he wasn't quite in the emotional crisis he professed to be, but Francie still wishes she'd slept with him because she knows she'll never feel that way about anyone again.

* In ''Manga/ShamanKing'', it's implied that Yoh and Anna had sex the night before Yoh leaves for the Shaman Tournament. Presumably, Anna did this so Yoh would [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy leave a child behind should he perish]] during the tournament.

Added DiffLines:

* This trope is defied in [[ComicBook/XMen Uncanny X-Men]] by Colossus and ComicBook/KittyPryde. Kitty had been infatuated with Colossus for a long time, so when they hear the news that both are infected with an alien parasite and will soon die if they don't find a cure, Kitty offers herself completely to Colossus but he rejects her, not because he didn't want to do it but because Kitty was still an underage teenager at the time and the act wouldn't have been correct no matter if they were going to die or not. However, the trope is played straight years later in ComicBook/AstonishingXMen when Kitty, an adult woman now, offers herself to Colossus again, one day before going into battle to save the alien planet Breakworld, and this time he accepts.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': If Cloud's RelationshipValues with Tifa is high enough, it's heavily implied that they have sex the night before the group enters [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon the Northern Crater]], to face [[BigBad Sephiroth.]] [[WordOfGod SquareEnix]] eventually confirmed that the intended implication was that they did indeed have sex and declared it [[{{canon}} the canon version]] of the event.
