Mouth-to-Mouth Force-Feeding

Go To

A character wants to feed, drug or poison someone else, but the target is not having any of it. So, in order to make the target consume the desired substance, the perpetrator pops some of that very same substance into their own mouth and kisses their mark to force it down their throat.

For some reason, the perpetrator never seems to suffer the adverse effects of putting potentially harmful substances inside their mouth, although this may be justified if the drug in question is beneficial in nature (e.g. food or medicine), or is encapsulated in such a manner that it would only take effect after being digested.

Given the intimate/seductive nature of the process, this could characterize the perpetrator as The Vamp or a Femme Fatale. Meanwhile, helpful transfers frequently overlap with Intimate Healing and invokes Ship Tease between the parties involved.

Sister trope to Drugged Lipstick. Compare Sleight of Tongue, in which the kiss is used to transfer a lockpick, weapon, or some other object to a captive hero that would help the latter free him/herself.

  • Elementals of Harmony: From My Little Praetor: Phthisis is Magic: "Instill Infection", talking about kisses:
