Magical spell or herb with 100% effectiveness

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:

What do you do if you want your characters to have heterosexual sex, but your setting lacks a reliable form of birth control, and you don't want to deal with the possible pregnancies that may result? Not to worry! Just create a magical spell or herb with 100% effectiveness against Babies Ever After.

Subtrope of Idealized Sex, similar to STD Immunity.

    I know I've seen examples of this, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. I do know some characters like Geralt from The Witcher who seem to be conveniently sterile primarily for the Ethical Slut potential, but I think that should probably be kept separate. (Geralt is what made me think of this, though.)

    Don't we have this as Fantasy Contraception?

    I looked through all of Sex Tropes but didn't notice the Pregnancy Tropes index. Guess this can be discarded then.
