* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', [[spoiler:Jon Snow]] was ''attracted'' to [[spoiler:Ygritte]], but he intended to stay true to his VowOfCelibacy. She blackmails him into having sex with her -- defending him against those who suspect him (correctly) of being a FakeDefector by claiming he's her lover, and then when he tries to thank her, telling him that she [[MetaphoricallyTrue wasn't lying: she'd only left out the fact that it hasn't started yet]]. Left with no choice other than to be exposed, [[spoiler:Jon]] has sex with her, and becomes pretty enthusiastic over time, but this doesn't negate or justify the blackmail, and it comes off a rather like NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''[[Literature/KushielsLegacy Kushiel's Dart]]''. Phedre buys passage across the Strait to Alba for her party by agreeing to sleep with the local admiral. Of course, she's a HighClassCallGirl to begin with so it kind of comes with the territory: the only odd part for her is being the customer instead of the vendor.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Subverted}} [[PlayedForLaughs For Laughs]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9279255/1/On-An-Island-In-The-Sun On An Island In The Sun]]'', which revolves around Literature/HarryPotter working to create his own island country free of FantasticRacism. Many people (mostly girls) express their interest in moving there, leading to various rumors that Harry is forming a harem. When Fleur hears about the island, she believes that the only way to live there would be to join the harem and sexually submit to Harry, which she reluctantly decides to do in order to [[BigSisterInstinct give her sister Gabrielle a better life]]. When she tells Harry that she would be willing to go along with the supposed sexual extortion, Harry informs her that the harem rumors aren't real and that she is free to move there no strings attached, leaving Fleur flabbergasted but grateful.


Technically Alice can refuse, but [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse saying "no" may come with a whole host of nasty consequences]], whereas an "okay" might gain her something or things she needs or wants. Oftentimes this is related to her and Bob's professional relationship -- promotions, connections, qualifications etc. Sometimes all she can hope for is just maintaining the status quo.

Added DiffLines:

* Referenced in an episode of ''Series/BarneyMiller'' where a new female detective is assigned to the squad. They're in Barney's office and he gestures to the couch, non-verbally offering her a seat, but she takes it the wrong way. "I got this job on merit!"

Added DiffLines:

** PlayedForLaughs with Soldier Boy, who Homelander manipulates into sleeping with him on an annual basis under the pretense of it being a "test" to join the Seven. And every time he "fails" and Homelander reassures him that it's not gay.

Added DiffLines:

* in ''Film/YellowHairAndTheFortressOfGold'', Tortuga charges his girls room and board and, if they can't pay with cash, they have to pay in 'other ways'.


* ''ComicBook/TheBoys'' begins with Homelander showing the Seven's newest superhero, Starlight, around the board room and she turns around to see he's lowered his pants. He demands oral sex in exchange for her keeping her role on the team, and when his two other teammates A-Train and Black Noir walk in she begs for help. [[CrossesTheLineTwice They then proceed to drop their pants as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* An indirect version is involved in ''VisualNovel/BuriedStars''. [[spoiler: The agency Beloved was connected with, Stric Entertainment, was in dire straits due to Kim Dong-chul's lousy trend forecasting. Enter a benefactor who promised to put Stric back on its feet. The price: He would get to sleep with Min Juyoung. Dong-chul pressured Juyoung into acceding, but she recovered her resolve just before the deed and left the benefactor high and dry. The sheer torment of the whole situation had the rather unpleasant side effect of commencing her ''panic attacks''...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'': Venus opened her nightclub with a [[LoanShark loan]] from a [[TheMafiya Mafiya]] boss who demands a "suitable late fee" whenever she can't make a payment, so she hires the PlayerCharacter to kill him.
-->''"...I'll be blunt. I refuse to ''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck]]'' that fat, misogynistic old man one more time to hold on to the club."''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Temeraire}}'': Laurence's [[WoodenShipsAndIronMen old Navy captain]] made advances on him and, when he refused, retaliated by giving him brutal work, gratuitous punishments, and {{Uriah Gambit}}s.
