* ''Literature/TheOdyssey'': Odysseus' extramarital relations with Circe and Calypso have shades of this. He became Circe's bed-mate because that was one of the conditions she demanded in exchange for helping him get back home. He became Calypso's partner because he was stranded on her island, and saying no to a deity is usually a pretty bad idea. In his heart he was always devoted to his wife Penelope.

* A lot of DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal could probably be qualified this way. For example, the myth of Europa makes it clear that Zeus didn't just hold her down and rape her--after carrying her away to Crete, he had nymphs adorn her with fancy clothes and such before they slept together. Then again, it's not like she agreed to be carried off to Crete in the first place; was she cool with this, or just afraid to tell an amorous god "no?"

* ''FanFic/ScarTissue'' has Asuka, who is still traumatized from the events before and after Third Impact and who copes with her loneliness by repeatedly having sex with Shinji. Although he never resists or tries to get help, it's clear that Shinji is too bogged down by guilt and fear to refuse. Asuka herself later compares it to rape.

* ''LightNovel/TheLunacyOfDukeVenomania'' is constructed around this--the women in the titular duke's harem are happy to be there, thrilled to be having sex with him, and don't miss their families or friends or lovers one bit. [[DealWithTheDevil This is because he has the power to instantly brainwash any woman that he fancies.]] Including a lesbian, who eventually dies from the strain on her sexuality. When he's [[spoiler:killed at the end]], all of the women run out of the mansion as fast they can. A less magic related case is Mikulia, who isn't brainwashed into the harem but has the emotional and mental maturity of a small child.

Compare LeonineContract. And the even more extreme variant AnOfferYouCantRefuse. 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''.

* One episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' had Chase have sex with Cameron while she was high.

* One episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' had Chase have sex with Cameron while she was high.get high and booty call Chase. He briefly asks whether this is right and Cameron admonishes him not to be a good guy. When they discuss this later there is no talk of consent. But Cameron does get mad at the patient-of-the-week for telling her that this kind of thing will make you happy, when "self-destructive" would be more accurate.

* ''Film/SonOfTheMask'': Tim has sex with Tanya while under the Mask's influence, which she didn't realize (he crawled into bed in the dark). It's quite likely she wouldn't have if his appearance was clear to her. This leads to the conception of her son too, and so there's the implication that he may be a {{child by rape}}.

* In ''Literature/ACourtOfThornsAndRoses'' Lucien feels obligated to perform a rite in Tamlin's place that involves sex with another person. In his case, with Ianthe, whose pursuits he's been trying to dodge for months. While he insists that he chose of his own free will to perform the rite, his body language and how he talks about it suggest that he didn't want to do it and hated the experience, and participated ''only'' because he felt he had to.
