* In the third season of ''That70sShow'', Jackie and Hyde do this, and state that they felt nothing - though it looks like Hyde is not entirely sincere. They still get together in the fifth season.
* ''TheWestWing'': C.J. and Danny, who have had {{UST}} buzzing between them for quite some time, do this so CJ can convince herself that one kiss will "get it out of [her] system" and things can then go back to normal. Since she [[spoiler:winds up married to the guy]], obviously, her plan doesn't work so well; in fact, they're so hot for each other they keep randomly grabbing and kissing each other pretty much throughout the show.
* In ''{{ER}}'', Carter and Lewis make one. They remain good friends after it.

* Done unintentionally in ''Film/BackToTheFuture''. Marty knows the person crushing on him is his future mom. She doesn't. When she finally gets a kiss she backs off immediately with a sense of shock, comparing it to kissing her sibling. To Marty's utter horror and relief.

* 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.
