In 'Yes Men' (S01E15), a one-time female character can control men and uses her ability to seduce them. While the male characters act as if the resulting relationship is consensual, it is the product of this mind control.

For an entire seven-episode arc (S04E16-S04E22), a recurring female character controls a different lead male character and manipulates him so that he believes he is in love with her. While there is no on-screen sexual relationship, it is implied that one occurs. The male character, when he is no longer controlled, confronts the woman for violating his agency.

Later, the same adult man who has fixated on her throughout the film makes sexual advances towards her, undressing her (with the intention of committing statutory rape), but stops when she discloses that she is a virgin. In other scenes, an adult films the household without their knowledge, the implication that this is a regular occurrence and is done with the intention of capturing intimate and private moments on film without consent.

Season one (Murder House): S1E1: a woman is raped by a teenage boy wearing a rubber suit which conceals his identity (she ostensibly consents to have sex but believes him to be her husband).

The man in the rubber suit appears frequently and his identity is ambiguous until S1E8. S1E2: a woman is held captive by a home invader and told first to undress and then to put on a nurse's costume. S1E3: a man violently rapes his maid, on the premise that they two had had consensual sex in the past, until he is interrupted.

This scene is revisited near the beginning of S1E8. S1E8: the woman who was raped and impregnated by the man wearing the rubber suit is institutionalised because her husband and peers do not believe that she was raped. In S1E9, this is resolved when her husband learns she was telling the truth, but she is forced to lie and say that she was not raped in order to leave the hospital.

Homophobia is a theme throughout the season. A man is diagnosed as a chronic masturbator and is seen masturbating in some scenes; could be interpreted as threatening behaviour. S2E2: a woman is called a 'slut' and a 'whore' by one of the doctors overseeing the asylum.

S2E3: near the end of the episode, one of the asylum staff attempts to rape a patient and then surgically mutilates her. S2E4: it is revealed that one patient killed her father for sexually abusing her.

S2E6: a woman is kidnapped and made to play a 'motherly' role for her kidnapper; this could be seen to have sexual overtones. In S2E7, her kidnapper rapes her. As a result, she becomes pregnant. When she escapes, she is picked up by a man who begins a misogynistic tirade against women in general and his wife specifically, refusing to take her to the hospital and eventually pulling out a gun. S2E8: in a flashback, it is revealed that one of the patients was raped in jail. At the end of the episode, a man intends to rape a woman in revenge for her treatment of him but before he can do so she kills him.

Later in this episode, the woman gives birth to the child of her rapist, despite multiple failed abortion attempts. Season three (Coven): S3E1: it is revealed that a black slave and a white woman have had an affair. He swears that she initiated the sexual contact as he loves somebody else, but is tortured anyway. In another scene during this episode, a young woman is drugged and gang-raped by a group of men at a fraternity party. Discussions of and references to this incident occur periodically throughout the season. S3E3: a woman makes sexual advances towards a minotaur.

S4E5: a reference is made to the fact that an upper-class family is particularly prone to mental health problems due to inbreeding. Season five (Hotel): S5E1: a hotel guest is shown taking heroin and then being violently raped by a faceless demon.

Season six (Roanoke): S6E3: a character is found having sex with a witch while local people look on and touch themselves sexually; he claims to have no memory of this incident after the fact.

American Vandal (TV Show)
The Americans (TV Show)
During a flashback in the pilot episode, a woman is pinned down and raped. More generally, nearly every episode has sexual activity that lacks enthusiastic, fully informed consent. In many cases, it can be likened to reluctant sex work for the spies. The people they seduce do not know they are consenting to sex with a Russian agent and are unaware of the spies' underlying reasons for pursuing sex with them. The male and female lead were assigned to play the role of a married couple by the USSR. They were told to have sex and produce children. Early in their time together, they were not at all in love and only had sex because the job demanded it. During the series, their degree of romantic attachment to each other waxes and wanes. As spies, the main characters frequently seduce and have sex with others to gain access. This happens very frequently. The level of deception involved in these sex acts varies. Many sex-spying acts involve seducing a stranger for a one-night stand with few implicit or explicit promises to be broken. However, in a very long-running storyline, the male lead convinces a woman that he is in love with her and marries her, while already married to another woman. The purpose of this is to use her for information and access. She is tricked into betraying her country, losing her job, as well as risking her life and freedom. Sex is the weapon used to cause these harms, rather than being a harm in and of itself. The male lead meets with a young, attractive female informant. She is "assigned" to gather information from a foreign dignitary who chokes her to death during sex. To avoid law enforcement, she is cut unto pieces and carried out in suitcases. There is a threat to out a gay servicemember. To gain access to a computer system, the female lead tricks a married man into believing that he had sex with her and impregnated her. To maintain an information source, the male lead is directed to seduce a 15-year-old girl and maintain a sexual relationship with her. He begins to seduce her, but refuses to have sex with her, though he does maintain a boyfriend-like relationship with her. The spies often do not like having sex with strangers for access. This is their job and they are often resentful. They appear distressed at times. They also get jealous of each other. The male lead attends emotional encounter seminars which involve participants loudly expressing their feelings or sharing very personal information, including sexual fantasies. Some fantasies expressed are violent and/or non-consensual. The female lead is assigned to seduce a sexual sadist who beats her with a belt. The male lead is angry and wants to punish the sadist. The male and female leads role-play consensual sexual sadism with one another. The female lead lies that she was raped by a military servicemember to a low-level navy sailor to manipulate him. The spies frequently use sex as a source of blackmail material or in order to get blackmail material. The spies convince a young (but presumably adult) collaborator to drug and have sex with an aide to congress. There are flashback scenes to the spies learning how to seduce people as part of their spy training. We see the male lead initiating sex with (presumably) undesirable partners, including an elderly woman and a middle-aged man. He is clearly reluctant. In the final season, the spies' daughter (now an adult) has sex with a source to get information. The spies are extremely disturbed by this.

Later on, the two have real conversations about the power dynamics of a white man being with a Black woman. Nevertheless, their relationship is presented as wholly consensual. The main mala character's mother was gang raped prior to the events of the book and bore a child as a result. There is a scene where the main female character is undercover as a man, and when she is found out by slave catchers, the men start touching her body and trying to remove her clothing. They are stopped before they get very far. An antagonist female character accuses the main male character of attempting to rape her. It is very clear in context that she is lying and trying to get him in trouble.

If all the wives of the main family are married by choice, there are many characters who are forced into marriages by their prophet. While most of the cult members "consent" it is a result of their upbringing in the cult. The main wife struggles with being in the polygamist marriage, and it is often suggested she agreed to it because she could no longer have children. Sex is frequently viewed as a measure of worth in the relationship.

After leaving the club, the main character takes a taxi with the other woman, who puts her hand between the main character's (clothed) legs and attempts to grope her.

The protagonist, an eighth grader, learns that the boy she has a crush on recently broke up with his last girlfriend because she refused to send him nude pictures of herself. The main character proceeds to tell the boy she has a folder of nude photos intended for her future boyfriend on her phone and he is interested. He asks her if she gives blow jobs and she responds that she does and she is good at them. Later, the girl is seen watching YouTube videos about how to give oral sex. They are not graphic. Minutes later, the girl goes into the kitchen and takes a banana. She brings the banana up to her mouth, obviously intending to practice giving oral sex, but her father enters the kitchen and asks why she is holding a banana when she hates to eat them. The girl proceeds to try and eat the banana, clearly disgusted, but spits it back out and leaves. The scene is played for comedy. Later on, the main character is given a ride home by a male high school senior (age unknown, but he could be a legal adult). Shortly after the only other high schooler gets out of the car, the driver pulls over and gets into the backseat with the main character. He pressures her into playing a game of truth or dare, taking his shirt off and trying to get her to do the same. The main character grows increasingly uncomfortable and when the high schooler touches her, she shouts no. She apologizes several times and the high schooler gets back into the driver's seat. He is upset and guilts the main character, telling her she is going to feel ashamed when a boy her age finds out she is inexperienced, and that he was 'only trying to do her a favour'. The main character is dropped off at home, where she goes to her room and starts to sob; her father attempts to console her. The scenes are played very seriously. Bo Burnham, the writer and director, stated (regarding the car scene) during a Q and A after the early screening that scenes dealing with anything sexual were on closed, tightly controlled sets. Even if the banana scene plays 'funny' it was not funny on set, but handled respectfully. Burnham claimed he wanted to portray a sort of 'intelligence' in teenage males, rather than the 'brutish jock type' typically seen taking advantage of younger girls. He recognizes that even if nothing physically violent took place, the car scene depicts something terribly violating.
