In RealLife, sex before a strenuous or stressful activity is usually not encouraged because of the energy that sex supposedly uses up (this is especially true in the world of sports, where athletes often believe that having sex the night before a game will negatively affect their performance). There is no scientific evidence for this. There is even a contrary theory suggesting that the hormone surge could improve subsequent performance. Even so, sometimes TruthInTelevision: natural selection in the tribal days may have encouraged an instinct for such conduct, because those who have sex before battle are more likely to reproduce and leave descendants than those who don't.

The reverse case, where the sex comes as a celebration of the fact that both characters survived whatever it was, is GladToBeAliveSex. If they not only survived the battle but emerged victorious, it's VictorySex.

* In ''Manga/OtakuNoMusumesan'', [[spoiler:Haruka]] gets some alone-time with Kouta right before [[spoiler:he goes to confront Nozomi who has just kidnapped Kanau away from his custody.
