* {{Crossover}}: with ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine, and one of the more complicated examples. In issue 9, we watch a porn scene being filmed where the two actors are cosplaying characters from that comic book, which we later find out was sold under the {{pun}}tastic name of "The Licked and the Divine". For bonus references, the Wic-Div creators, [[CreatorCameo Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie]], are featured in this scene, too. The real crossover happens in issue 14 of the "The Wicked and the Divine", which slightly alters these images to make it look like the character Woden is producing and directing this porn video, presumably for self-gratification purposes.


* CommonalityConnection: Several. Jon works for the same bank that Suzie's dad worked for; one of the bank's owners is a member of the Sex Police; Suzie's new OB/GYN is a childhood friend of Jon's who then ends up dating Rachelle, and all seven of the main characters(Suzie, Jon, Rachelle, Robert, and the Sex Police) live in the same town.

* YourCheatingHeart: Myrtle Spurge, married with two kids, sleeps with Dave in order to get her hands on Jon's psychiatric records. [[spoiler: Kuber Badal later uses this to blackmail her into compliance.]]


''Sex Criminals'' (2013-2020) is a creator-owned Creator/ImageComics series by writer Creator/MattFraction and artist Creator/ChipZdarsky. To say the premise is a little out there would be putting it mildly, it's...sort of a crime/romance/sci-fi story.

* BiTheWay: Jon is shown in early issues as having sex with a guy named George. While speculated on for a while by fans, in the letters section of Issue #13, writer Matt Fraction cleared up the confusion by stating that "Jon would categorize himself as bisexual. There were more men than George. I don't know if we'll get to all of them. I guess I thought including George in his list addressed his sexuality."


* IntroductionByHookup: Suzie and Jon meet at a party she's throwing to raise funds to save her local library. [[OneThingLedToAnother One thing leads to another]], and they find out they have the same ability.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Alix rips into Jon in issue #16, pointing out that he's acting out of anger because the Sex Police are messing with his life, and that his actions could easily land him and his friends in jail.
* RepetitiveName: Douglas D. Douglas. Jon and Suzie immediately assume the middle "D" is also for "Douglas". For some reason, he goes by Dewey for the rest of the series.

* HeelFaceTurn: Seems to be happening with Alix as of issue #19. She was already becoming disillusioned with Kegelface and Badel's actions, but appears to have been legitimately angered by Badel's insinuating that he could use his wealth to harm Jon.

* ChekovsGun: Suzie still doesn't know that the Sex Police primarily figured out her and Jon's bank-robbing scheme because a worried Rachelle called the cops (which would have been bad enough, but it was Kegelface, the precinct receptionist, who answered the phone).
