* Angela from ''Series/{{Bones}}'' is this trope at times, especially with her relationship with Roxy and her later decision to be temporarily celibate are introduced.

* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' and its spinoffs, ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' and ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'', are {{Sex Comed|y}}ies in which EverybodyHasLotsOfSex — but they are also character-based lightweight dramas in which the characters’ rather obsessive pursuit of sexual satisfaction drives many or most of the plots.


* Steven Moffat, showrunner over a HotterAndSexier era of ''Series/DoctorWho'', has stated multiple times that the reason he doesn't write the Doctor with the NoHuggingNoKissing asexuality of the Classic series is because it is boring. According to him, a non-sexual Doctor is denying the Doctor the opportunity to "live a full life" or be a RoundedCharacter.

* Much more than any other RPG by [=BioWare=], ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' deals with sex almost constantly.

Then there's also a [[BlueSkinnedSpaceBabe blue skinned space]] vampire who drains her victims life energy by having sex with them.
