'''''Desire Climax''''' is a Shōjo {{Manga}} written and drawn by Ayane Ukyou. It was serialized in Margaret from 2004 to 2006.

The story starts out rather [[ClicheStorm predictably]]: [[UnluckyEverydude Mio]] [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Omori]] is from a poor family and works a cleaning job to scrape money together while her mother stays in the hospital. One night, as she's heading home from work, she witnesses a bunch of thugs beating up a ritzy sports car, only for the owner of said car to come out and kick ass and take names. When Mio goes to call the police, he grabs her by the hair and for [[FridgeLogic some reason]] decides to make out with her. And then he throws money at her, claiming that he's "bought" her.

Things only get weirder from there. The next day Mio discovers that her assailant is none other than Shoei Jinnai, an extremely popular student and her landlord's son. From there it develops into a whirlwind romance which involves [[ExplicitContent lots and lots of sex]].

While the plot isn't especially gripping, it's fine for a light read. Weirdly enough, it delves into issues such as BrotherSisterIncest and child prostitution, [[spoiler:neither of which have all that much impact on the plot in the long run.]]

!!''Desire Climax'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Seems to operate under this principle. [[spoiler:Mio chooses the JerkAss Shoei over the more-or-less agreeable [[NiceGuy Hinata]].]]
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Partially averted. The author has no problem with drawing Mio's naked breasts, but everything else is off-limits.
%%* BeautyEqualsGoodness
* BedTrick: Hinata, desperate to drive a wedge between Shoei and Mio, pretends to be her and attempts to get in bed with Shoei. Since Shoei is nearly blind without contact lenses it almost works until he touches Hinata's hair and realizes the difference.
* {{Bishonen}}: Shoei and Hinata are both very pretty. In fact, they're prettier than [[HollywoodHomely Mio]].
* BrotherSisterIncest: Hina's interactions with his sister are a bit... iffy to begin with, but then we're told that [[spoiler:Mio is the illegitimate child of Mr. Jinnai, making her Shoei's sister.]] [[spoiler:They decide to [[{{Squick}} have sex]] anyway.]] But then again, [[spoiler:it turns out Hina's actually Shoei's little brother. Mio had just assumed the worst when she learned that her mother had had an affair with her landlord.]]
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: [[spoiler:The gardener's father kidnapped Mio when she was small and caused her LaserGuidedAmnesia. [[GenerationXerox The gardener also kidnaps her]].]]
* DontYouDarePityMe: Mio's reaction to Shoei slipping her a credit card.
%%* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:The gardener.]]
* IllGirl: Mio and Hinata's mom, who spends the whole story in the hospital.
* IncestIsRelative: [[spoiler:Mio and Shoei pretty much convince themselves that they can get around the incest thing by being in love.]] [[spoiler:This is actually averted (thankfully) later on -- it turns out that it's actually Hina who's related to Shoei instead of Mio. The situation with Hina's mother is unclear, but it is stated that they are at least half brothers, given that Shoei's father also fathered Hina. Mio's mother also served as a wet nurse to Shoei, which makes things more convoluted.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Shoei is one, as per [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys romance plot rules]]. Hinata can also come across as one.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Probably what the author was going for with Shoei, but...
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Turns out Mio has some.]]
* LovingForce: Shoei does everything from forcibly kissing Mio to outright raping her on a couple of occasions. She starts to cave once he [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization makes her have an orgasm]].
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Mio suffers the worst from this, starting out as a strong-willed, feisty girl but eventually devolving into a simpering moron for the man who pretty much sexually assaults her every time she's on the job.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Hinata sort of delves into this when he gets jealous of Mio's relationship with Shoei.
* {{Meido}}: Mio gets hired as one.
* NippleAndDimed: Averted.
* OnlySaneMan: Mercifully, Mio [[LampshadeHanging points out]] a lot of the ridiculousness that takes place early in the story, and even manages to avoid Shoei's constant attempts to bone her. Unfortunately, she later starts to become a part of the insanity.
* PornWithPlot: While the main story is kind of interesting, one can't help but feel like it was tacked on at the last second.
* PsychoticLoveTriangle: Shoei, Hinata and Mio.
* RichBastard: Shoei all the way.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Shoei apparently believes that raping your employees is A-okay when you're rich.
* TwinSwitch: Kind of. In a flashback, we learn that [[spoiler:the gardener's father had planned to kidnap Shoei for ransom, but kidnapped Mio instead, since the two were cross-dressing at the time. ItMakesSenseInContext.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Mio's friend shows up a couple times and then disappears for the rest of the story.
* {{Yandere}}: Shoei and Hinata for Mio.
