Victory Sex

Go To

Tilde: If you let me out, I'll give you more than just a kiss.
Eggsy: Sorry love, gotta run. I'm going to save the world.
Tilde: If you save the world, we can do it in the asshole.

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.

    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.
  • Dragon Ball Z Abridged: On seeing Krillin's determination to save her, Android 18 thinks to herself that if they make it out alive, she's going to rock his four-foot-world. At the end of the arc, she does just that... and on seeing his Gag Penis, bangs him for so long it destroys the "Krillin Owned" counter.

    Films — Animation 
  • After the food kills all the humans in Sausage Party, they celebrate with an extended bisexual orgy.

    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.
  • 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.

    Video Games 
  • At the end of Far Cry 3, the player is given the option of either staying with their friends, or killing them to stay with Citra. If you chose the latter, you're rewarded with a first person sex scene with her... which smoothly transitions to Death by Sex as she plunges the mystical dagger into Jason's heart seconds after he finishes. Oops.
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: Most of Geralt's romance options (Keira, Yennifer, Triss, and Shani...with Syanna being the only exception) offer themselves to him after whatever the main conflict of their story arc is has been resolved.

    Real Life 
  • Needless to say, this happens in Real Life. Most famously, there's a reason that children born in the United States in the aftermath of World War II are called "Baby Boomers." The US experienced a sizable population explosion when all of the GIs returning home following the surrenders of Germany and Japan turned their attention to starting families.


How well does it match the trope?
