* Averted in ''Videogame/HunieCamStudios'', where sending girls to work as escorts has the possibility of them getting various [=STDs=] that can cause various debilitating statuses. They can even end up contracting AIDS, which is both incurable and prevents them from doing anything.

** The entire Naked In School universe (which does not include HowHogwartsBecameANudistColony) has this as a requirement, as bodily fluid transmissions are inevitable. Condoms are therefore unnecessary, as all contraception is taken care of via inoculation.

* Averted in ''Film/CabinFever''. When 2 casual friends suddenly decide to jump in to bed together, in the middle of a flesh-eating disease outbreak, the man is aware of how dangerous their affair is, and remarks to the woman how surprised he is that [[ButWeUsedACondom she didn't care about using a condom]] - while they're in the ''middle'' of having sex. The woman [[BlatantLies tries to assure him that she's healthy,]] though she has no way of knowing this for sure and doesn't seem to care one iota about the health risks. As it happens, rashes - which are the first symptom of the deadly disease - are bought out on the woman's back while they're still having sex by her lover's passionate squeezes. Sure enough, the woman quickly deteriorates and dies thereafter, and the man later falls ill himself - confirmed by a scene where he pulls up his hospital gown to find sickly welts just above his crotch.

* Sex in jokes usually plays this trope straight as bringing this up isn't usually important to the punchline - the ''aversions'' are the funny ones.

** An American man goes to China and sleeps unprotected with a prostitute. By the time he gets back to the States, his penis has turned green. He goes to his doctor, who shakes his head and says they'll have to amputate. Deciding to get a second opinion, another doc tells him the same thing. Suddenly he gets an idea - a Chinese doctor! The Chinese doctor looks at his penis and says he's seen this before. "Will you have to amputate?" the man asks - "Oh, no - not at all!" the Chinese doctor responds. The man is breathing a sigh of relief when the doctor says "Two more days and it will fall off by itself!"

** Likewise, in Franchise/HarryPotter FanFic characters will usually cast a "contraceptive spell" before getting down to business. [=STDs=], however, are rarely - if ever - mentioned.

* [[PlayedForLaughs Played for laughs]] ([[BlackHumor sort of]]) in [[Literature/TheGoodSoldierSvejk The Adventures of Good Soldier Švejk]], set during WorldWarOne - one character describes his futile attempts to catch a venereal disease in order to [[DraftDodging avoid military service]]. To his despair he remained as fit as a fiddle.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Despite these being TheDungAges, no one seems to get [=STDs=]. Not [[TheVamp Queen Cersei]], not [[TheHedonist King Robert]], not [[LoveableSexManiac Tyrion]], not [[CasanovaWannabe Theon]], not [[SoiledDove Shae]], not even [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Ros]]. The trope is averted the [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire books]] at least in passing. A Tyrell camp follower gave a young lord an STI. One of the Targaryen kings allegedly died of an STD from a whore. Also, the prostitute enlisted to teach Dany how to pleasure men is implied to have been living with an STI, and she suffered a flareup when she was weakened by hunger. Still, none of the main characters ever get any.

* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' provides a strange case. In their world, people generally *are* aware of the risks of unprotected sex, so this trope is largely averted during the stories (e.g. "Paradise", "The Slave of Duty")- but the ''frequency'' of unprotected sex during the series makes one wonder if anyone even bothers with condoms to begin with. Surely some of the [=UnSubs=] might have gotten away if they ''did'' think about it.

* Averted in ''Literature/LettersToHisSon'' by British statesman Lord Chesterfield: He mentions "a whoremaster with [[BodyHorror half a nose]]" [[note]]e.g. caused by syphilis[[/note]]. Maybe to ScareEmStraight.
* Averted in NameOfTheWind. In Kvothe's part of the world, it's rarely mentioned (because it's not really that relevant to him) but the Adem describe going to great lengths to avoid or remove venereal diseases. Kvothe notes how important this is in light of the amount of sex they have, and with how many partners.
* Averted and played with in ''Literature/YouthInSexualEcstasy'', the protagonist discovers that he has herpes right after having sex with the school's most attractive girl, he is told that given the sudden onset of symptoms it's unlikely he got it from her and more likely that he infected her, and he is also given the serious advice of tracking down all his previous sexual partners to warn them about it. Then he later learns that the girl was indeed infected, but with ''syphilis'', how he didn't got the disease from her is never explained.

* Averted in ''Series/GreysAnatomy'', when the first season finale was about quite a few of the doctors dealing with an outbreak of syphilis from constantly hooking up with one another. Also serves to [[YourCheatingHeart reveal that some of the characters cheated on their partners.]]

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' is usually big on this trope what with their advanced medical technology, but of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' had an episode where Harry Kim turns out to be the only Starfleet officer to ever pick up a disease by sleeping with the GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe. On top of that, he gets no sympathy from his superiors because he [[CantGetAwayWithNothing broke protocol with his interspecies liaison with a strange new race]] (not that it ever stopped Riker or Kirk, but they were ''senior'' officers of course).

* Averted in ''Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay.'' No one can die anymore, and when Jack suggests a condom, his hook up laughs it off about how no one can die. Of course, Jack, [[ResurrectiveImmortality being better versed in the realities of immortality]] insists.

* Averted in ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU,'' which deals with sex crimes. Victims are encouraged to get tested. In one episode, a man who was raped complains about the fact that he won't know for sure he doesn't have HIV until after his honeymoon and he doesn't want to tell his fiance.
** In another, Olivia finds out a former boyfriend was HIV positive. They'd only slept together once, five years ago, but she still gets tested. Later, they're able to identify said-ex's killer because he has the same strain of HIV.
