* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ck14LKBI9GM&NR=1 This]] French commercial goes [[RefugeInAudacity over the top]], using computer animated [[PettingZooPeople furries]] in a very suggestive and well choreographed song and dance. Includes sensual dancing, bouncy breasts, SceneryCensor, and lots of splashing fluids and [[FreudWasRight climactic]] imagery. What is it all about? ''[[Advertising/{{Orangina}} Orangina Juice]]''! Later commercials however have become milder compared to that one though.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': {{Discussed}} [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/original-timeline/443-insanity-prerequisite-part-1 here]] when Tina is auditioning for being the band at the Halloween Dance:
--> Mr. King turned to face the audience in a parody of her stance, muscles clenched tightly, gripping his mic with both hands, knuckles white, “I feel like I’ve been locked up tight, for a century of lonely nights… no wonder you’re locked up, you look constipated! You’re probably in hospital for a ruptured bowel. THIS IS A PERFORMANCE! MOVE! You’re a girl, for God’s sake, move that ass, baby!”
--> Mr. King span and wiggled his ass at the audience for emphasis, “Strut that stuff, girl! If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Sex sells. If you think [[Music/ChristinaAguilera Christina]] got where she was on her voice alone, you are sadly mistaken.

* ''Franchise/TombRaider'' wasn't this originally, but after the first game became a big hit, Eidos marketed the later games where Lara would be in provocative poses and other similar situations. It worked well enough to make the games sell millions.

* Made-for-streaming and made-for-premium cable programming in the last decade has become notorious for shoehorning sex scenes into virtually every show, with the number of TV-MA-rated series far outnumbering family-friendly productions. It has been stated in numberous articles that the presence of sex scenes not allowed on (most) standard US commercial broadcasters is one reason for the popularity of such venues. Ironically, after five seasons of becoming notorious for its sex scenes, the sixth season of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' - arguably one of its most acclaimed - contained virtually no sexual content at all other than two shots of plot-relevant nudity, one penis-related gag and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of two extras going at it in one episode.
