* ''{{Literature/Tigana}}'': An odd, zigzagged example. Devin and Catriana are [[ClosetShuffle hiding in a closet]], about to overhear an exposition that Catriana desperately doesn't want Devin to hear. So to distract him, she has sex with him, TenMinutesInTheCloset type style. At the time, Devin is ''throughly'' distracted… but he has a very good memory and replays the scene later, this time getting the exposition.

* ''Series/TheSopranos'': There are numerous scenes where TheMafia are discussing important plot points in the Bada Bing strip club. Although if it's something ''really'' important or incriminating, they'll take the conversation into the backroom instead.

* ''Film/TheDevilsAdvocate'': While Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves' characters have their final dialogue, Al sends in a beautiful woman who undresses herself in order to seduce Keanu. He refuses her and their dialogue continues, while she just keeps standing there completely nude, apparently to give the audience something to stare at while all this talking goes on. Oh, and she's his [[{{Squick}} half-sister]], according to Al.

* An early scene of ''Series/TheBorgias'' has Jeremy Irons' Pope Alexander tracing out the geopolitics of CityStateEra Italy on his bedmate's leg. Traditionally Italy is likened to a boot, but he makes a bold creative decision to work higher up, and sans footwear.

Compare IHaveBoobsYouMustObey when a female character uses her ... assets to persuade another character, and SexSells, which is where sexy imagery is used as an eye-grabber for advertising.

* With the rise of premium cable and streaming services in recent years, sexposition is used so often it has become not just a trope, but an outright cliche. Mainstream network TV has also begun to feature more of this as clothed/non-explicit scenes depicting sexual intercourse have become allowed under the TV-14 rating, to the extent that virtually every series produced for American, British and Canadian TV rated TV-14 (or equivalent) or higher contains scenes that fall under this trope.

* While the term is a new one, the idea is not. This concept often operated as a censor decoy. In most countries, censor boards are under instructions to ensure that their cutting does not effect the flow of the story. This way, the censor had to either permit the scene in question or have to explain to his superiors why exactly was there a sudden plot hole in the movie as approved.
* More GenreSavvy censors averted this by asking for a detailed scripts before allowing shooting. This was not possible for foreign films. US made films often use this to ensure they get in to the now very lucrative Middle East and South Asian market.
