Added DiffLines:

* Bender from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' is this to fembots and A.I's with female personalities, he has also seduced one human and one human head in a jar.
** He seemed successful with human women in a WhatIf story that showed him being turned into a human
** The only time I saw him fail to pick up a woman was when he tried to hit on a bride AT HER WEDDING!! [[RefugeInAudacity while she was dancing with her husband.]] He then goes on to sleep with her sister [[UpToEleven having already slept with her mother]]
* The entire cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' is this to some extent.

* This is an inherent power of all werewolves in ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', although it won't work on anyone who's already in love or in a committed relationship. There's actually a good reason for them having it BEYOND PowerPerversionPotential. Breeding is VERY important for the Garou, since being a Werewolf is in the blood...only they can't breed with other Garou, without cranking out a deformed child called a [[TheWoobie Metis]] (which you can play as). Since Wolves spend a LOT of time fighting the Wyrm and dealing with their own brand of tribal politics, its a little...difficult to get into a committed relationship (but not impossible), making one night stands preferable. That's right, Pornomancy is almost mandatory for their very existence.

'''Tony Stark:''' That is an excellent question. Yes and no -- March and I had a scheduling conflict, but fortunately the Christmas cover [[TwinThreesomeFantasy was twins]].

You, my friend, are The Pornomancer. In [[UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}} pornographic]] movies, the characters usually don't ''earn'' their sexual conquests so much as ''receive'' them from some greater power... whether that power is in-universe magic or simply a godlike, but lazy, writer or director (or both). There wouldn't be much of a porn movie if the characters didn't have sex, and nobody involved, including most of the audience, cares whether the seduction would be plausible in the real world. So it isn't. Thus, in the grand tradition of [[AWizardDidIt wizards who are helpful to lazy writers]], this field of study is known as [[WhateverMancy "pornomancy."]]

Aversions of this trope occur when, for example, TheCasanova "earns" the conquest plausibly to the viewers. Subversions take place when the InformedAbility turns out to be just that... for example, the FemmeFatale's charms fail and she strikes out miserably; it's also a subversion when the person with said powers knows he or she ''can'' use them for sex, but doesn't.

** For added hilarity, we have [[JerkJock Ryuuji]], a rather successful [[TheCasanova casanova]] who ''[[SubvertedTrope thinks]]'' he's this. He even tells his girlfriend he has such a superior DNA that women can't help but throwing themselves at him, thus she'll never break with him in spite of him continuously cheating on her... [[LaserGuidedKarma Then she meets Junta as the Mega Playboy and uses Ryuuji's own bullshit to justify her sudden feelings for him to herself, before breaking up with him]].

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': Akio exhibits this trope. Touga as well, although he's not quite as skilled as Akio, whose pornomancy seems legitimately magical, whereas Touga is just suave. [[spoiler: Eventually Touga decides to submit to Akio's power and become his herald / implied buttboy. Touga's best friend calls him out on it, and Touga admits that being around that much power feels just plain good.]]

** Jughead Jones once upon a time had a pin that he wore in his hat which made him completely irresistable to women. [[CharacterDevelopment This was paired with a drop in his gynophobia]].
** And while we're on the subject of Archie -- how does that plain, ordinary guy with no money, poor grades, and little talent except an occasionally demonstrated musical ability [[BettyAndVeronica get two girls to fight over him all the time]]? Not to mention get a date with anyone who happens to be just passing through Riverdale?

* Easier to count women in ''Witcher'' series that didn't tapped Geralt than those who did. Slighty justified because the witcher's wierdness acts like a magnet... or because Geralt seems to be some kind of alter ego for Sapkowski. Though it only true in the short stories. During the entire penthalogy (roughly five years), Geralt slept with the grant total of three different women.

* Literature/SirAproposOfNothing gets a ring (that does not go on his finger) that gives him pornomancy in ''The Woad to Wuin'', the second book of the series. Subverted in that it quickly proves to be a curse: "The women came to me in all shapes, all sizes, young and old, pretty and... less so. Finally they tied me to the bed. There are worse ways to pass one's hours, but none come readily to mind."

** While Harry himself is an aversion, wizards are known to have this effect. It actually serves as a decent early-warning sign of dark wizards, aka "warlocks". Magic is heavily tied to the wizard's sense of right and wrong and the fact that magic that takes control of people means that the person [[FridgeHorror doesn't consider what they're doing abusive]] is a pretty good clue that someone is up to no good. Harry's strength -- and certain Mantles of Power that he has -- make a lot of the major magical players want him on their side. Many of them are [[FemmeFatale Femme Fatale]]s or have them on staff for that purpose.

* Barney from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is a master of this, not only does he have an arsenal of magic tricks, he once managed to pick up a French chick whilst pretending to be an 80-year-old man. Marshall, apparently, is not so sure. Barney is seen successfully scoring with increasingly bizarre tactics, but by his own admission he has actually flirted with way, way more women than he has slept with. Basically, his pornomancy is a servant to RuleOfFunny, and if it's funny for him to get martinis thrown in his face that will happen instead. One episode has Marshall using GMB's photocopying department to make an absurd number of graphs: Barney's success rate is, apparently, only about 1%.\\\
The episode 'Stuff' highlights some of the weak points in Barney's game; although he is shown on-screen with a great success rate in picking girls up, it apparently falls apart fairly often on the way back to his or her place. Barney's solution? Turn a moving truck into a one-room bachelor pad in the alley behind the bar. Though, according to his own admission, he has never had a "perfect week", (7 women in 7 days) though he has tried to. Somewhat TruthInTelevision, Barney is using what might be called "The Shotgun Approach". Basically, he tries so much, so often, that the law of averages kicks in. Even if he only scores once for every 50 shots he takes, he shoots so much that that still means he'd get more tail in a week than most of us would see in a lifetime.

Does sex just happen as naturally as breathing around you? When you meet up with a very attractive woman/man, is the next shot always of [[DressHitsFloor the clothes hitting the floor]]? Did an [[SexyManInstantHarem instant harem or stable]] appear at your house? Perhaps you have a CompellingVoice, and take it to its [[PowerPerversionPotential logical conclusion]]. You almost certainly make BowChickaWowWow music on the soundtrack when you walk down the street. People will look.
