* In ''BringItOn: In It To Win It'', one of the male cheerleaders comes out as straight (apparently, he liked the fact that girls would change in front of him). Nobody believes him, so one of the girls grabs him and kisses him, which cues this line:

Sometimes a character will suggest a test kiss because he/she sure that the other loves him/her, but she/he is denying/suppressing it for some reason. In these cases, the kiss is meant to be a wake-up call, proving to the oblivious/taken/heroically withholding character that they can no longer ignore their feelings.

* In ''{{Smallville}}'', [[spoiler:''Abyss'']], [[FanPreferredCouple Chloe and Clark]]'s FirstKiss seems like this on Chloe's part, although Clark seems content on standing there and looking shocked.
* In ''TheBigBangTheory'', Leonard and Leslie decide to skip all that pointless date business and proceed directly to the goodnight kiss--no sparks fly.

* Played with on ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager''. Amy worries that she might not be a good kisser after a guy doesn't call her after their date. Her baby daddy Ricky offers to kiss her to calm her fears, and practice her technique if need be. When the two of them kiss, it quickly becomes clear that it's not practicing, but the resolving of {{UST}}.(Though they initially tell their friends that they're [[LikeBrotherAndSister just friends]] and it really was [[BlatantLies just practice]])

* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': In chapter 4 while they are going on a date, Shinji and Asuka have a test kiss. Asuka wanted to kiss him but she was frightened of being rejected so she taunted him, and Shinji reacted to her goading by grabbing her and kissing her forcefully. Then they had a fight before making up.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': In episode 15, Asuka and Shinji kiss, but due to their personal traumas it goes awfully wrong. Asuka wanted to kiss Shinji but she did not want to look interested, in case that he rejected her, so she told she wanted to kiss him because she was bored. Shinji wanted to kiss her but he did not believe she was interested in him, so he initially resisted. They went forward with the kiss but Asuka held Shinji's nose the whole time to pretend it was not a big deal in case that he turned her down. And precisely because she was pretending it was not a big deal, Shini did not dare to do anything, and he remained motionless and unresponsing. And precisely because he remained motionless, Asuka thought that he was turning her down, so that she ran off. Cue Shinji's self-esteem getting another blow and Asuka giving another step towards her mental breakdown.

* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Asuka kissed Shinji for first time claiming she was bored and wanted to practice (in reality she wanted to kiss him but she did not dare to say it plaintively out of fear of being rejected, so she pretended she was bored). When she said she was bored Shinji thought she wanted to practice kissing again, and he was shocked when she said she wanted to have sex.

* An interesting variant appears in a ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' short story. Harry Dresden and Karrin Murphy are hit with a spell that makes them fall in love with each other. Given the complications the spell can bring, they decide to break the spell for everyone it's affected, including them. When they do so, they kiss. When it starts feeling weird, they know the spell's broken.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Long before the beginning of the story Asuka wanted to kiss Shinji to find out what kissing was like, but their attempt went awry due to their psychoses and insecurities. It is brought up in the first chapter, and several times Shinji, Asuka and other characters talk about the kiss, arguing what went wrong and how things could have gone differently.
* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': This story's point of divergence from canon is Asuka and Shinji's TestKiss. Asuka talks Shinji into kissing, and during the kiss he realizes it is a hint of her feelings and kisses her back.

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Asuka decides to kiss Shinji because she's bored [[BelligerentSexualTension (or so she claims)]]. She pinches his nose because his breath tickles, causing him to turn blue while she kissed him. Afterwards, he's left gasping for breath, while Asuka is in the bathroom gargling soap. [[spoiler:Asuka is later revealed to have taken the fact that Shinji didn't hold her as a rejection.]]

** This was brought up again during the infamous MindRape scene. When Shinji came up
in her head, she exclaimed "What are you doing there?! [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe You won't do anything!]] [[CoolDownHug You won't help me! You won't even hold me!]]" And it's shown that after their first kiss, she ran to the bathroom gargling soap. [[spoiler:Asuka is later revealed to have taken the fact that Shinji didn't hold gargle so she could [[StepfordSmiler hide her as a rejection.]]pain from him]] about his lack of warmth.

* Monica from ''{{Friends}}'' did this with Pete (the millionaire) to see whether there was a spark, just before they finally got together after a long time of WillTheyOrWontThey.
* ''{{Glee}}'' plays with this. After kissing each other while drunk during a game of Spin the Bottle, they both feel sparks, causing Blaine to doubt he's really gay, and Rachel to fall head over heels. When Kurt says that there's IncompatibleOrientation, Rachel kisses him again to prove Kurt wrong. Due to the absence of alcohol, Blaine [[NoSparks feels nothing]], and reaffirms that he's gay, and Rachel has something to write a song about, so all is well.
* Zack and Jessie did this on ''SavedByTheBell''. They found out they didn't like each other, but Kelly and Slater walked in and [[MistakenForCheating got the wrong idea]].
* A variant on ''SexAndTheCity''- Miranda was MistakenForGay by someone in her law firm who tried to fix her up with another woman that she ended up taking to a formal function put on by her firm (being more accepted as a lesbian in a relationship than she would straight but single). She eventually admits the truth, and in an awkward elevator ride down with the lesbian she kisses her, then concludes "Nope... definitely straight."
