* Used in ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'', making this OlderThanFeudalism. (Except in this case, it's less "Good vs. Evil" and more "Order vs. Chaos.") Enkidu starts off as a wild man, and then he has sex with Shamhat, a temple prostitute over the course of a week. By the end of the week, he is civilized. (It's not clear whether this was a ''direct'' result of the sex, or whether Shamhat used sex as a reward for appropriate behavior, thus "training" Enkidu.)

* Used in ''UltimateXMen'' as {{Wolverine}}'s reason for permanently joining the X-Men, as opposed to killing Xavier and leaving like he was supposed to. Unlike most examples, however, Jean didn't know that Wolverine needed to be redeemed, and after finding out, promptly dumped him, disgusted that that was his original reason for joining them.
