* 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.")

* ''Anime/PhantomQuestCorp'': Corrupt museum director, Mr. Nagasuki, pulls this on Natsuki, in Incident File 03. First, by pulling the night crew of the exhibit she [[spoiler: which was discovered by her deceased boyfriend, Narita]] was working on. Then by threatening to cut off the exhibit's funding... unless she [[DoubleEntendre "co-operated".]] She almost gives in to the pressure but, thankfully, she had both Phantom Quest and [[spoiler: [[DeclarationOfProtection Narita's ghost]]]] to protect her.

* 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}}. [[spoiler: Franchise/{{Batman}} comes through with a more ethical and lawful solution, finding some of the professor's other victims and convincing them to file charges.]]

* In ''{{Ragtime}}'' (novel version only), Tateh's wife is sexually abused by her boss and doesn't speak up because (Tateh being an artist) her income is what's supporting the family. When her husband finds out she's been "unfaithful" to him, he [[ValuesDissonance declares her dead to him and throws her out of the house]].

* In ''Theatre/MeasureForMeasure'' the evil Angelo demands that Isabella sleep with him or else he'll execute her brother. She tricks him into sleeping with his own estranged fiancess Miranda instead.

* Suberted in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. After helping him recover from a broken ankle, Lois asks Death if he wouldn't mind sparing her husband. Death says sure, but "you'll have to do something for me." After a moment's indecision, Lois begins to slowly unbutton her shirt... only for Death to [[InnocentInnuendo state that he meant that she could grab him another fruit cup from the fridge]]. It's unclear whether this is true or if he was just messing with her by seeing how far she'd go.
