Name Space: Main
Page Type: trope

The conquering hero has slain the Big Bad and his Faceless Mooks, perhaps with his warrior woman at his side, or perhaps rescuing the Damsel in Distress from the vile villain. So what happens next?

Coitus Ensues.

Maybe fighting together against such overwhelming odds resulted in a Relationship Upgrade. Maybe they're just that happy to still be alive. Maybe it's a final twist of the knife to their hated foe (they're still alive to live and love while he lies dead, possibly only a few feet away). Regardless, the sex occurs as a result of triumph over some adversary or adversity.

If The Bad Guy Wins, this trope may take a decidely darker turn.

Frequently overlaps with Rescue Sex and/or Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex. The main difference being that Victory Sex involves celebrating or otherwise acknowledging triumph, while Rescue and Glad-To-Be-Alive Sex don't necessarily follow a notable victory, rather simply being about, well, rescue or survival. But many cases involve overlap with one or both related tropes. Less family-friendly version of Smooch of Victory. Compare Pre-Climax Climax. Side effects of Victory Sex may include Babies Ever After.


Examples:

    open/close all folders 

    Comic Books 
  • In Secret Six, Knockout has sex with Deadshot after the team survives a battle with the Doom Patrol, as it is apparently common for Apokoliptians to celebrate victory with sex and Knockout's girlfriend Scandal was busy at the time. Needless to say, Scandal is pissed when she finds out.
  • In The Authority, Engineer beds the Doctor after the team manages to defeat his Omnicidal Maniac predecessor, partly to encourage the Doctor to get off of drugs (as his heroin addiction was responsible for his predecessor's resurgence in the first place) and to get back at her boyfriend, who decided to celebrate the victory by cheating on her.

    Fan Works 
  • At the end of At Odds, once Beast Boy returns from his Earth saving mission, Raven wastes no time before teleporting them both to her room. The rest of the team immediately decides to take the T-car and go search for a quieter place.
  • In This Means War by Jeconais, once Voldemort is defeated at the end, Harry states he needs Ginny to help him with getting out of his very tight dragonhide pants and they walk away. The rest of the fic is people being impressed and annoyed at all the Immodest Orgasms.

    Films — Animation 
  • After the food kills all the humans in Sausage Party, they celebrate with an extended bisexual orgy.
  • The Ultimate Game in Space Jam results in a win for the Looney Tunes. As Michael Jordan bids adieu to his teammates, he advises Bugs Bunny to stay out of trouble. Thing is, Bugs Bunny is a victorious alpha male, Lola Bunny is obviously ovulating over Jordan, and the two bunnies have just kissed passionately. Lola pulls down the next scene before the film would merit an NC-17 rating.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas from 1982 centers on The Chicken Ranch, a cathouse in Gilbert, Texas. As an incentive in the intrastate rivalry between the Texas Longhorns and the Texas Agriculture And Markets Aggies, the winning team was feted at the Chicken Ranch, with the "fees" being paid by the team's booster clubs. Y'know, Win One for the Boner.
  • At the end of The Fifth Element, the President of The Federation can't congratulate Corben Dallas and Leeloo on defeating the Ultimate Evil and saving Earth because. . . they're busy. They need. . . five more minutes.
  • Idle Hands: When druidic priestess Debi (Vivica A. Fox) finally uses her enchanted dagger to kill the demonically possessed hand, it's time for this with metalhead Randy (who'd been trying to score with her the whole last act of the film, but she was too focused on her mission).
    Debi: Well, my work here is done. Time for the ritualistic sex. (turns to Randy) Coming?
  • Kingsman: The Secret Service: Eggsy asks for a Smooch of Victory from Princess Tilde, who offers Rescue Sex instead. When he has to forestall to save the world, she upgrades to victory anal sex.
  • Kingsman: The Golden Circle: Tilde implies victory anal sex has become her standard reward for Eggsy whenever he saves the world.
  • In Man on Wire, Philippe Petit celebrates the end of his quest to walk a high-wire between the two towers of the World Trade Center by having sex with a groupie.
  • The Punisher (2004): Villainous example. Howard and Maria Saint have sex to celebrate avenging their son's death by killing Frank Castle's entire family (unaware that Frank has survived and is far less pleased about this than they are).
  • Serenity: The promise of this (and a Relationship Upgrade) with Simon spurs Kaylee to state she will survive the battle with the Reavers.

  • At the end of The Fifth Element, the President cannot congratulate Corben and Leeloo on saving the Earth because they are too busy having victory sex in the medbay.

In <Kingsman The Secret Service Kingsman> the princess offers herself if the hero saves the world. The final shot of the movie is him "accepting his reward".

Feb 7th 2019 at 2:41:45 PM

Needs better contrasting against Rescue Sex. At least the Kingsman: The Secret Service example is specifically Rescue Sex.

Feb 7th 2019 at 4:12:58 PM

^ Sort of. It kind of mutates from Smooch Of Victory to Rescue Sex to this. Eggsy half-jokingly asks for a kiss if he rescues the Princess, and she responds by offering "a lot more than that," making it Rescue Sex. Then he has to go save the world instead of make time with the Swede, at which point she says "If you save the world, we can do it in the asshole." Moving it firmly from Rescue Sex (save me and I'll do you) to this trope (save the world, and I'll do you).

EDIT: Even so, added to the relations.

I thought a few James Bond movies end this way, with Bond doing it with the girl of the movie...

One example is the "food orgy" scene in [1].

Feb 8th 2019 at 11:44:00 AM

^ That needs rather more detail.

There's also an example I'm not sure belongs here. There's at least one adult mod for The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim that includes a configurable percentage chance for the player and their followers (and potentially bystanders) to have sex after clearing a dungeon or slaying a dragon. I'm not sure it belongs because references to adult-themed mods are conspicuous by their absence on Skyrim's trope page, while references to "regular" mods are frequent.

We generally don't trope porn anymore, even though Sex Tropes are still permitted.

Feb 8th 2019 at 2:03:46 PM

Compare Pre Climax Climax when characters sleep together before victory instead.

Feb 8th 2019 at 2:45:20 PM

If this trope goes through. The "food orgy" from Sausage Party will be the first example I'll add.

Feb 10th 2019 at 9:58:04 AM

Any issues that need to be addressed?

Feb 10th 2019 at 10:00:06 AM

I suggest that it might be related to Babies Ever After.

Feb 10th 2019 at 8:48:39 PM

Hatted. Any suggestions on what it might be indexed on, other than the obvious Sex Tropes?

Daredevil 2015 Anatoly agrees to make a deal with Fisk, but gets killed for interrupting his date. Wesley covers for absence by telling Anatoly's brother Vladimir that he might "have a girl or a boy he might be celebrating with", over the deal that he thought went through.

Oops duplicate, delete this.

Feb 16th 2019 at 8:45:34 AM

The draft was rogue launched, and has been unlaunched.

Feb 16th 2019 at 9:02:27 AM

What can I do to make it launch ready?

Feb 16th 2019 at 3:54:52 PM

^ you were the one launching this before, right?

Feb 16th 2019 at 3:56:58 PM

^^ It's not your call to make. Erik Modi is the draft's sponsor. It is up to them to decide when this can be launched and to launch it. Like, this draft has existed for all of a week. Relax and let OP do their thing.

Feb 16th 2019 at 4:12:06 PM

I'm pretty sure it's good to go, with 17 hats, zero bombs, and no raised issues in the discussion so far, but it's better to let a draft ferment for a bit, so it can be in the best state possible when it launches.

Realslimshady 128, if you have a suggested edit, please post it in the comments, don't edit the draft directly. I'd already added the The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas example.

Unless a draft is Up For Grabs, the person who started it should be the only one making edits. Usually.

Feb 18th 2019 at 3:23:16 AM

^ I'm afraid that your statement that "the person who started it should be the only one making edits." is incorrect.

The Up For Grabs says that trope proposals that are not Up For Grabs should not be "significantly edited" without the original poster's permission.

Basically, this means that you should follow the same policy as when editing existing trope pages. You should not make significant changes (e.g. to the very nature and intent of the trope) without permission, but simply correcting errors is completely O.K.

If you look through the proposals edited in the last day, you will find some that have been edited by me for various reasons. I only change things that are objectively wrong (e.g. bad English) or violate TV Tropes policies, and I post a list of the changes I've made.

Feb 18th 2019 at 3:32:39 AM

Right, that's one of the exceptions I was thinking of (and I appreciate all the times you've corrected issues in my drafts!) But adding an example from the comments, especially when the sponsor has already added it, is not needed. As I understand it, it's kind of up to the sponsor to decide if a specific example is actually an example, and has sufficient context and description to show how it applies.

Feb 18th 2019 at 4:52:02 PM

I apologize for editing the article directly (BTW I added The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas example before you). I'm sorry for my ignorance.
