* Penny has a brief instance of this in ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops''; during the first loop where she is biologically human, she quickly sets out to experience all that having human senses have to offer with the help of Ruby and Sun. Later loops downplay it to a degree, as she primarily seeks out artificial noses to install and, eventually, use her RobotGirl status to record the experience of being human.

** Contrary to popular belief, the excesses of Slaanesh cultists aren't always [[SexIsEvil sexual]] in nature; it can be just about anything from finding out what is the most aesthetically pleasing pitch a person can scream at, to mindlessly staring at a wall painted a highly specific shade of purple. Slaanesh always leads to obsession, however - a simple pleasure like the sound of wood burning in a fire can be warped to the point where a Slaanesh cultist will start burning down houses just to get that sound, [[ItsAllAboutMe without even bothering to check if the house is occupied first]].

* [[TheHedonist Slaanesh]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is a ''God'' of this. In a CosmicHorror kind of way.
** Slaaneshi followers tend to have their senses dulled out by constant exposure to all kinds of stimulation, forcing them to commit more and more extreme thing to be able to feel ''anything''. Probably the ultimate expression are the Noise Marines from 40k, who use devastating sonic weapons because anything less loud won't even register to them anymore. In older versions of the models these were modified electric guitars. Their armor is painted in eye-watering pink and black, because, again, nothing else even registers anymore.[[note]]If you're noticing a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything drug abuse metaphor]], that's not coincidental.[[/note]]

* The god [[EldritchAbomination Tholaghru]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is constantly writhing in as many forms of pain and pleasure as it can get its appendages on. It encourages mortals to fall to demonhood in order to collect more sensations, and its followers would like to share those sensations with you. Neither Tholaghru nor its followers know or care which of those sensations is pain and which is pleasure.

* 3D Lee in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'', after a brief initial moment of {{Badass}}, spends the rest of the special in enraptured ''awe'' of the amazing sensations that three-dimensional video existence enables, compared to existence as a series of still 2D photographs.

* In the first ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movie, the cursed pirates of the Black Pearl go on and on about what sensory experiences they've most missed during the curse, and therefore what they plan to glut on once they have their nerve endings back. Captain Barbossa says the first thing he plans to do is... eat a lot of apples. In the scene this seems like an UnusualEuphemism for raping his female captive, but it later turns out he was dead serious and continues to eat apples at every opportunity throughout the series.

* Remember the Society of Sensation we mentioned earlier? They show up again as a joinable faction in ''PlanescapeTorment'', and what with [[PlayerCharacter The Nameless One]] being a scar-riddled amnesiac immortal, boy do they get a kick out of ''you''.
** Additionally one of your party members, Fall-From-Grace, is both a Sensate and the "Madame" of an offshoot organization, the Brothel for Slaking Intellectual Lusts, which is less about satisfaction of the flesh than it is about satisfaction of the mind.

Caliban the ex-demon on ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' when he is first [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=10123 incarnated as a human]]. While he initially enjoys it, this quickly comes back to bite him when Helen decides to torture him for information, and he is begging for mercy just from a ''cotton alcohol swab''.
--->'''Helen:''' I could use the softer ones...
** Caliban ends up in a relationship with Mel almost immediately, and it quickly becomes apparent that their only activities are "talk a bit, have sex, repeat."
--->'''Mell:''' You know, sooner or later you'll have to get over the fact that you've got a body.\\
'''Caliban:''' I have. Now I'm hung up on the fact that ''you've'' got one.
** After Mell's brief ascension to Heaven (followed by her demotion to Hell and subsequent escape), she immediately grabs Caliban for sex. She was only gone for a few weeks, but the lack of physical sensation hit her hard.

'''Mell:''' Dude. It '''ain't'''.\\
'''Caliban:''' I know. Just checking.
