The line between acceptable and unacceptable is often drawn at [[SafeSaneAndConsensual consent]]. However, consent can sometimes be questionable. How consensual was it, really?

* In ''Fanfic/ADifferentMedius'',[[spoiler:Azurai's marriage to Iratu]] is definitely an example, the former making a sarcastic remark, and the latter thinking [[spoiler:it's a proposal]]. [[spoiler:Iratu also jokingly "threatens" to eat Azurai if he doesn't go through with it. Azurai can't tell whether it's a joke, and doesn't care to find out.]]

It can also be a discussion about whether or not a certain character is able to consent to a certain thing in the first place. The character might be [[{{Lolicon}} too young]] or [[NaiveEverygirl inexperienced]], [[DrugsAreBad drugged down]], intellectually challenged, [[ButLiquorIsQuicker extremely drunk]], [[DudeShesLikeInAComa unconscious]], suffering from StockholmSyndrome or similar. It might also have to do with [[UnequalPairing the nature of the relationship]]: [[SleepingWithTheBoss a boss and an employee]], [[DoctorsOrders a health care worker and a patient]], [[ParentalIncest a parent and child (even if said child is fully grown)]], [[HotForStudent a teacher and student]], [[SexyPriest a clergyperson and a member of his/her congregation]], or something along those lines.

** The Feros colonists would also count. They signed a contract which contained a clause that would allow a company to experiment on them in exchange for medical treatment. Unlike the former quest, where no moral opinions on the matter are stated to be superior, the game strongly suggests that this is exploitation, using the colonists against their will.

Unlike the former quest, where no moral opinions on the matter are stated to be superior, the game strongly suggests that this is exploitation, using the colonists against their will. If Shepard takes care of it, it turns out to actually be ''completely pointless''; the (Asari) executive responsible was lashing out at all aliens in a mad rage after her daughters were caught in the crossfire of the first game's finale, and will fix the loophole she exploited after realizing this.



** Mages apparently cannot be possessed unless they allow the demon/spirit to do it. However, said entity can force the issue by torturing the mage until they "consent". This is shown in gory detail in the Circle Tower when the Uldred abomination electrocutes a luckless mage until he agrees to become an abomination.

In Stone Prisoner and in Redcliff we see demons get "consent" by manipulating a ''child''.

Cut to the two of them in separate sleeping bags, with Finn pulling the bag up over him to cover himself and referring to the incident going in "the Vault", where he hides his more disturbing memories.

Compare LeonineContract. See also the UsefulNotes page on UsefulNotes/{{Consent}}. This trope is not to be confused with the webcomic that's only one letter away, ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''.

Compare LeonineContract. AdaptationalConsent often overlaps, either clarifying one way or another whether a situation was truly consensual or doing the opposite and muddying a clear cut situation into being Questionable. See also the UsefulNotes page on UsefulNotes/{{Consent}}. This trope is not to be confused with the webcomic that's only one letter away, ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''.

* ''Film/TheSurvivalist:'' Kathryn and her daughter Milja are desperate for food and shelter. The Survivalist has a bed and a shotgun. So Milja sleeps with him. The Survivalist is not used to company, so the gun is probably to protect himself from her possible threat, and not to force her compliance, but if Milja didn't sleep with him, then she and Kathryn would have been sleeping outside.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'': In the episode "Six of One", Colonel Tigh orders Tory to seduce Baltar in order to [[spoiler:find out more information regarding the last Cylon model based on the latter's experiences in the Temple of Five]]. Tory agrees to do so, but it's shown that she isn't happy at all. Later, when she does seduce Baltar, she cries while they're having sex. Baltar misinterprets this ([[spoiler:because he knows that she's a Cylon]]) as thinking she's insecure and tells her that she does have feelings, and this apparently makes her feel better.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'': As Cypher [[StrawmanHasAPoint specifically complains]], the whole "red pill vs. blue pill" choice was dishonest. Only the Matrix was explained in full, not the "real world", and many, like him, would reject it had they known the full impact of their decision.
