In Richard Kadrys third Sandman Slim novel ("Aloha from Hell") the protagonist and his ally Candy release months of pent-up sexual frustration and wreck a hotel room in the process, including collapsing the bed, crushing the nightstand and phone, punching holes in the wall and clawing the stuffing out of a sofa all through high-intensity sex. No fighting, just bonking. The hotel manager thinks it is a gang fight and calls the cops, but the protagonists sidekick reroutes the call. Does this count even though there is no actual fighting, or is there a better heading that I'm not aware of?

I am not sure why the trope description requires that the sexual act be preceded by a fight, that seems like it's making the trope overly narrow. Might want to ask whether it's necessary in this forum.

It doesn't; there's one throwaway line ("Sometimes circumstances (supernatural or otherwise) can and do contribute to the sex leading to destruction even if there's no actual rage or fighting involved.") that cover non-fight examples, which are pretty common.

I agree it could stand to be expanded to a larger part of the description.

Best name for a trope ever.

can we included real life animal mating rituals, that involve fighting?

Real Life disappeared?

This happened among people in real life?

Why would it not? This is a fairly domestic trope.

I'm kind of confused whether this trope is sex after a physical fight or sex that destroys furniture. The description seems to point at both at the same time, but the examples are usually one or the other.

If we narrow it down, make it destroying the furniture. We have Slap-Slap-Kiss.
