Added DiffLines:

** Sex isn't ''evil'' so much as it is ''powerful''. It's too great a source of pleasure and creativity to classify as evil, but too dangerous and unpredictable to classify as good either.

* '''Double Subverted''': At least not right away. The [[ButWeUsedACondom pregnancy and STDs]] may show up later, emotional hang-ups and the accompanying drama ensue later, and [[MyGirlIsNotASlut people scorn Alice for her part when they find out.]]

Added DiffLines:

** This only applies to non-marital and/or non-reproductive sex in this setting.


Added DiffLines:

** It turns out AliceAndBob were not married to each other (whether or not they were to other people), and not doing it for the purpose of having a baby. Thus they experience consequences, while a married couple actively trying to conceive do not.

* '''Played Straight''': AliceAndBob have sex. Alice gets pregnant, and both come down with terrible, incurable [=STDs=].
* '''Exaggerated''': DeathBySex.
** Alternately: By merely flirting with Bob, Alice is dragged to hell by demons, some of whom are even [[EvenEvilHasStandards crying at what took place]].
* '''Justified''': Alice and Bob are teenagers, and CantGetAwayWithNuthin for the sake of a VerySpecialEpisode.

* '''Deconstructed''': Sex is treated as a MoralEventHorizon crossover because there really does exist the possibility of [[DisasterDominoes things going wrong.]] Because of that, MoralGuardians and the like see it as evil, not because it *is* evil, but because they're afraid of the possible consequences. The LaserGuidedKarma killing off all the amorous couples in the series is a reflection of these fears.
** Alternatively, a MadScientist sees SexIsEvil, and finds [[BodyHorror means]] [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul of]] [[BrainInAJar destroying]] [[PlayingGod sexuality]] by declaring that the human body is a disgusting immoral thing that should be destroyed and replaced with machinery that does not desire or have sex, resulting in [[UnwillingRoboticisation dehumanisation]].
* '''Reconstructed''': Alice and Bob become more informed about sex and how to protect themselves. They strengthen and stabilize their relationship. (And of course they strive to be [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex good people.)]] Because they don't fear harm coming to themselves or their partner, sex is not seen as an evil act. [[SexIsGood It's good and beautiful.]] Or, at worst, as neutral as eating a PB&J sandwich.



* '''Averted''': No one has troubles related to their sex lives.
