There are multiple instances throughout the series of characters having sex while one or more of them are concealing their identities (through possession, assuming a false identity, etc.). Lycanthropy (being a werewolf) is a sexually transmitted curse with dire consequences if it is not passed on. Werewolves are referred to broadly as rapists in the first season, although it is later made clear that this is a generalization. S1E1: the scene where a female character is recruited to a new magic school involves her sexual assault (her shirt is forcibly removed). S1E7: two characters have sex and enter a romantic relationship, but it is later revealed that one of them was possessed the entire time they knew each other. The other character seems very disturbed by this, because it meant the possessed character did not actually consent to anything. S1E9: scene of child sex abuse. S1E12: he main characters travel to a magical world and meet another student from their school who discusses how some of his classmates had sex with talking animals. It is mentioned on occasion throughout the series that cross-species relationships occasionally happen in this world and are technically not bestiality, as the animals/magical creatures are sapient and can give consent. Two main characters have sex while shapeshifted into foxes. S1E12+13: three characters are affected by alcohol and a spell that heightens emotion. A gay man falls down while his two best friends (male and female) put him to bed: he immediately passes out. The other two characters begin to have sex, and eventually wake him up to include him. The threesome progresses to full intercourse, and all three characters wake up naked. The gay man is blacked out throughout. None of the characters involved ever acknowledge that he was raped; he is blamed by other characters for the event. All characters are implied to have fragmented memory of the encounter, and all characters attempt to lay blame on each other (no one is considered to be fully responsible for their actions because of the effects of the spell). S1E13: graphic and potentially distressing on-screen rape of a female lead. She becomes pregnant as a result of this event, although she then terminates the pregnancy (these repercussions are dealt with into seasons 2 & 3). It is revealed that a key male character was a victim of child sexual abuse when he was younger. He is portrayed as being 'evil'. An overarching plot from the end of season 1 onwards involves a male character, who is primarily gay, having to enter an arranged marriage with a woman: some sexual encounters between them could be considered coercive. S2E1: two characters discuss the fact that they have both been raped, and one suggests that the other permanently remove all of her emotions to "feel better" like he did. S3E5+6: a 27 year old character is forced to marry a 15 year old boy. He makes several creepy advances towards her, but she avoids consummating the marriage by getting him blackout drunk and convincing him they did have sex. S3E3: pirates board the protagonists' vessel, and there is discussion of the possibility of sexual assault and PTSD occurring between the sentient boats. The (female) pirate king also flirts with a female character, which could be seen as somewhat threatening, given that they are demanding that their boat be allowed to rape the protagonists' boat or else they will kill the human crew: no assault occurs. There are references to a professor having had multiple affairs with adult students.
