* In the [[UsefulNotes/ThePreCodeEra pre-Code]] 1930 movie ''The Silver Horde'' (it's about salmon fishing in Alaska, not [[{{Discworld}} that other Silver Horde]]), it's pretty much stated outright that the HookerWithAHeartOfGold female lead secures a business loan for the protagonist by sleeping with a banker.

* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' Quark attempts to extort oo-mox (basically the [[FantasticArousal Ferengi equivalent of a handjob]]) from female employees twice on-screen. The first employee takes the contract to Commander Sisko, who declares the relevant provision null and void on grounds of ''what the Hell?'' The second time is "Profit and Lace", where [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext after spending a couple days as a woman]] Quark rescinds the demand, only for the employee to tell him it sounded like fun.

** Another one features a man in 1955 or so confessing to his priest that he saved a Jewish woman from the Gestapo during the war, but demanded sexual favors for giving her food and shelter. The punchline of course being that he asks the priest if he should tell her the war is over.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', [[spoiler:Jon Snow]] was ''attracted'' to [[spoiler:Ygritte]], but he intended to stay true to his VowOfCelibacy. She blackmails him into having sex with her -- defending him against those who suspect him (correctly) of being a FakeDefector by claiming he's her lover, and then when he tries to thank her, telling him that she [[MetaphoricallyTrue wasn't lying: she'd only left out the fact that it hasn't started yet]]. Left with no choice other than to be exposed, [[spoiler:Jon]] has sex with her, and becomes pretty enthusiastic over time, but this doesn't negate or justify the blackmail, and it comes off a rather like NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization.

* A minor character in ''{{Doonesbury}}'' is a soldier who was forced into sex by her commanding officer and is now in therapy. The strip goes surprisingly in-depth on the various psychological conflicts she's now suffering. (Notably, one of her issues is that she never directly said no to the officer, and thus feels that she consented--this is lessened to a degree when she discovers that his actions are classified as "command rape.")

* Ralph König's ''ComicBook/KillerCondom'' (''Kondom des Grauens'') begins with this trope - underage female student hates herself for it, but chooses to let her professor have his way with her in turn for passing an exam. [[spoiler:Lucklily, the condom he picks turns out to be a genetically engineered monster that eats his dick and then crawls away, leaving him bleeding and her laughing hysterically.]]
* In one ''ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders'' storyline, a professor tries this on a student, who refuses and [[DrivenToSuicide tries to kill herself]] when threatened with having her education ruined. When [=GeoForce=] hears about it, he tries to pound the perp into gelatin, but is stopped by Franchise/{{Superman}}.
