* Despite being obstenably set in a high school, the main cast of ''VisualNovel/MonsterProm'' is somewhere in their 20s or older, with the youngest character being 19 at the least. Normally, this might be attributed to monsters aging slower than regular humans, but then Liam specifically mentions age shipping discourse brought up in ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' fandom,[[note]]Namely, that after Marco spent decades having an adventure in another dimension, being in his original body again possibly makes him mentally older than anyone he knows[[/note]] then notes they don't have to go through that discourse since they're above legal age. And given the high amounts of horniness and sex that happens in the game, this in-universe disclaimer might have been in the developers' best interests.

* Ever since the infamous "pedophilia how-to guide" incident on Amazon.com late in 2010, Amazon.com has been rather squeamish about selling any erotic literature featuring underage sex and/or incest. This led to a number of erotic authors' stories [[http://www.teleread.com/ebooks/amazon-removes-incest-related-erotica-titles-from-store-kindle-archive/ being yanked from distribution with no warning and little to no explanation]]. Since then, many erotic authors such as Selena Kitt have lately reworked a lot of their stories to specify that everyone in them is ''totally'' eighteen or over; also that they're ''totally'' NotBloodRelated. Almost invariably, any stories about--for instance--"daddy's little girl" will have the girl saying something to her daddy about how she can decide things for herself since she's eighteen now, and will mention in passing or work into the plot some reason why [[DisappearedDad her biological father is gone]] and this guy is actually her ''step''-daddy.

* The TorturePorn comic house ''Fansadox'' includes multiple disclaimers in its web and comics claiming that all characters are "at least 18 years old". If said comic "stars" TheIngenue and shows her in high school, the narration and dialogue will tell you several times that she just turned eighteen. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop So it is perfectly okay to rape, torture and often murder her, you know]].

* In the first few ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' games, several characters didn't have their ages listed in the American releases because they were underage but still delivered just as much (if not more) {{Fanservice}} as the adult women. ''DOA 4'' had a TimeSkip that put the entire cast at 18 or older, meaning suddenly it was okay to print their ages in the American versions. Plenty of fans suspect this trope is in effect with Marie Rose thanks to her ElegantGothicLolita design and her having the least [[BuxomIsBetter developed]] figure out of the franchise's women, but she actually is 18 years old.

* All of the professionally translated Eroge sold in the US features characters that are at least 18, no matter how young they look. The Sagara Family, in particular, features four 18 to 22-year-old sisters from the same youngish mother.

* Parodied in ''Franchise/DanganRonpa Another Episode: VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'' where at the end of Kotoko Utsugi's mini-boss with Genocider Syo (in which she gets stripped down to her underwear) she will claim that it's upsetting, but it doesn't matter since [[BlatantLies she's eighteen]].

17. Since characters can be nude (albeit with CensorSteam) and taking {{Panty Shot}}s is a game mechanic, the developer felt the need to stay on the safe side.

* In ''Series/VeronicaMars'', Keith Mars shows Sheriff Don Lamb a photo of Lamb making out with Madison Sinclair, a classmate of Veronica, in order to get information out of him. Lamb tells Keith "she's 18 - that's legal", but capitulates when Keith challenges him to wait and see if that explanation is good enough for his constituents when it comes to his re-election as sheriff, and shows another copy of the photo with "18 - that's legal" printed on it.
