Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheToughGuideToFantasyland'':
** There are two types for female slaves:
*** Female Tourists, who are captured into slavery: "You may well be annoyed to find how little your new owner pays for you, but this is the Management's way of protecting you from rape, beatings, and other hardships."
*** Girls of a RoyalHarem, and the sex they have is never forced: "Beautiful young women. You will find these in droves in the FANATIC CALIPHATES and sometimes in the PALACES of bad KINGS. Their duties are light and pleasant and are: looking beautiful, bathing and massaging visitors, singing and dancing, and, for male Tourists, providing company in bed. None of them seem unhappy in their work and they show no desire to escape. [...] Often male Tourists will sympathize with the plight of such Slaves, nobly reject their offer of free, no-holds-barred SEX, insist on assisting them to escape from the exploitative tyranny under which they have been existing, and then, having obviously done them a Good Turn, have free, no-holds-barred Sex before stranding them in the middle of nowhere to make their way thousands of miles back to their own COUNTRY."
** Male slaves are "used by bad KINGS, FANATIC CALIPHATES, and some WIZARDS in large numbers as GUARDS, attendants, fan-bearers, waiters and entertainment, and for SEX."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': Malleus's slaves, who also doubled as {{Breeding Slave}}s, as said:
--> To Malleus, the poor girls chained naked to the walls were nothing but objects of convenience, there to sate his lusts and produce offspring.


The contrast between some of the more [[FetishFuel risque aspects]] of this trope and the CrapsackWorld environment it usually occurs in can often create UnfortunateImplications. In some works, the slavery can [[StockholmSyndrome develop]] into a [[PropertyOfLove mutual relationship]]. Expect BatheHerAndBringHerToMe, GoGoEnslavement, and/or a SlaveCollar. Compare SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil.

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in the ''Literature/WarchildSeries''. The pirates take prisoners and sometimes recruit children as geishas, which are only loosely based on the old customs. Mostly, they are sex slaves and sometimes assassins. In the first book, the main character was a prisoner whom the BigBad intended to turn into one of these. He escapes without much of the training (but a lot of the abuse). It's not until the third book that one of these slaves becomes a main character. This is not played for FetishFuel, but rather {{deconstruct|ion}}ed to show the psychological ramifications related to such an existence. Very [[DarkerAndEdgier dark]] portrayal, really.

Added DiffLines:

* In part 2 of ''Druuna: Morbus Gravis'', Druuna and a young BaldWoman are "rescued" from the wastelands by the fascistic soldiers who police the ruined city. Druuna wakes up in the commander's bed, and after asking him what happened to the girl she was with, is shown evidence that the girl has been forced into sexual slavery. Meanwhile, Druuna herself is offered "protection" by the commander in exchange for sexual services [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse the alternative being death]].


Unfortunately, this is TruthInTelevision, although [[NoYay generally]] [[{{Squick}} quite]] [[SickAndWrong different]] from the fetishised fantasy. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_prostitution Forced prostitution]] in general amounts to this. Human trafficking in particular is one of the biggest ways that people are enslaved like this.

* Underclassmen at Garderobe Academy in ''Anime/MaiOtome'' are given to the [[OneeSama Onee-samas]] as "room attendants." One student states, when explaining the system, that the kohai ''could'' be made to do ThisAndThat for the OneeSama, complete with ImagineSpot.

* ''Manga/BlackButler II'': Episode 8 reveals that [[spoiler:old man Trancy captured many [[ShotaCon young boys]] to choose sex slaves from, raped most of them, and Alois ended up being his favorite sex slave right up until either he died of old age, or Alois killed him.]] Also, the flashbacks in the manga to when [[spoiler:Ciel is kept as a self-described 'pet' to the cult members]] has several panels that suggest this probably happened to him.

* In ''Film/TheTenCommandments'', Lila is blackmailed into this position via ScarpiaUltimatum by Dathan, who promises not to have Joshua executed if she agrees to it ''and'' tells anyone who asks that it's consensual. Despite [[{{Jerkass}} the type of man Dathan has proven to be thus far]], he keeps his end of the bargain.

* Every Active in ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'' is used for this frequently. They are [[BrainUploading overwritten with new personalities]] and then hired out to clients, many of whom (though not all) specifically do so to indulge in romantic fantasies. While the Actives' original personalities effectively signed a contract to be used as sex slaves with the Dollhouse beforehand, it's only offered to people who were in some sort of dire straits, nor would such an agreement hold up in any modern court of law.


* In Nora Keller's ''Literature/ComfortWoman'', Akiko was forced to serve as a military "comfort woman," a sex slave provided to troops during the Japanese occupation of Korea in WorldWarII. Her daughter Beccah does not know of this history, and as she learns of it, she comes to understand her mother's apparently strange ways.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Meg and Ruth are victims of this in the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Leggo My Meg-O," which was a direct parody of ''Film/{{Taken}}''. Meg was sold to a handsome Arabian prince who wanted to propose marriage, before Brian and Stewie stepped in. They also managed to rescue Ruth too, but not before her tongue was ripped out. (Fortunately, this show makes good use of the ResetButton.)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/ThreeAmigos'', El Guapo kidnaps Carmen and it's made abundantly clear that it's for this purpose, going so far that as to have another woman "instruct" her on it. However, he rejects [[TheDragon Jefe's]] suggestion of simply forcing himself on her and prefers to wait until she's willing...or he'll kill her. And, yes, [[BlackComedyRape this is all played for laughs.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* In the ever classy Wrestling/WorldWrestlingFederation, The '''P'''retty '''M'''ean '''S'''isters manipulated Meat into having sex with them, and representing them in matches. However, Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} took offense to Wrestling/TerriRunnels using meat as an outright sex slave, eventually breaking up the group.

* Creator/PiersAnthony invokes this in ''Literature/BioOfASpace Tyrant'', where the hero's older sister Faith gives herself up to pirates as a sex slave in order to save her fellow refugees from being destroyed. Even more dispiriting than it sounds, since the family had fled the planet to protect Faith from being raped in the first place.
