* ''DivorceItalianStyle'' features this as an UnbuiltTrope, as is to be expected since it predates current usage by several decades. The usage here as a result tends to be a lot more macabre and disturbing, as the main character in pursuit of his goal [[spoiler:to have sex with his 15-year-old cousin, devises a highly elaborate plan to manipulate his wife into having an affair so he can legally have her murdered, and then marry said cousin. Said plan includes knowingly destroying his entire family's moral reputation, and at one point (accidentally) killing his uncle]].

* In ''KidsInTheHall'', a recurring character simply (and [[GenderBender more or less]] [[PettingZooPeople accurately]]) called the Chicken Lady wants nothing more than to have sex. However, since the vast majority of the available dating pool is human, [[HilarityEnsues things tend to go spectacularly badly]].

* The main plot of ''BGataHKei''... although the one on the quest [[GenderFlip is a girl]]. Her explicit goal is to gain one hundred sex friends before graduating highschool. Now, she's a beautiful girl, so this ''should'' have taken all of ten seconds. But she has [[CannotSpitItOut no ability to communicate her desires]], actually doesn't know very much at all about sex, as well as surprisingly low self-esteem (She's embarrassed to even look at her own body down there), so hilarious misadventures happen instead of {{hentai}}.

* ''{{Porkys}}'' and the multiple movies spawned by its success use this as the main thrust (so to speak) of the plot. The same can be said of ''AmericanPie'' from a decade later.
* In the movie ''FortyEightHours'', Reggie goes out of his way to get some. It's not the main plot, but a subplot.

* In ''Literature/TheGame'', ([[TookALevelInBadass formally]]) socially awkward music journalist Neil Strauss does research on the Pick-up Artist Community, meeting several other socially awkward types on this quest. They all end up having copious amounts of sex, but [[AnAesop it ultimately solves nothing because they still have deeper problems to contend with]].
