* {{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.

* {{Asexuality}}: In the third arc of the series, we meet Alix, an asexual person. Not only is her story incredibly touching and heartbreaking, but we learn that she accesses her orgasm-power via BASE jumping. Way to introduce a great new character [[spoiler: who resolutely decides to kill our heroes.]]


* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler: The Sex Police aren't actually police. On the one hand, this means that they have no real power to arrest anyone or any kind of legal authority, but on the other hand, they're essentially vigilantes who have no reason to play nice and nobody to hold them responsible for anything.]]
** When Susie and Jon tell Ana that they're bank robbers, her response is to tell them to get out -- after all, they've just made her an accessory after the fact, why would she want anything more to do with them?
** [[spoiler: Susie and Jon's crime spree gets a lot of people with orgasm-powers very pissed off at them. Sure, their motives might be good, but they're committing crimes, potentially exposing everyone, and they have little if any sense of restraint -- they're a disaster waiting to happen.]]

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.

* 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.
