Before that, he exhibited Villainous Valor Berserk: Double Subverted in the manga. It takes Casca and Guts at least one try before they can make sweet, sweet love without one of them having a bad bout of temporary insanity caused by post-traumatic stress from childhood sexual abuse. Still, their moment is the only instance of sex in the series so far that wasn't either Attempted Rape , near-rape , actual rape , demon rape , a pagan orgy , just plain sick , or done out of spite , money , lust , or pity.
Not to mention that Guts and Casca resolved all of their then-current inner troubles through Intimate Psychotherapy. Played straight in the TV show and movie, in which Guts and Casca have passionate, uninterrupted sex, taken up a notch in that the two have very good non-verbal communication cues when expressing their wants during their first time.
In fact, this trope is yet another facet of showing how much Guts and Griffith contrast with one another. Earlier, Griffith is shown taking Princess Charlotte's virginity, but Griffith only initiates the act in order to gratify his angst over losing Guts, and so the sex is pretty emotionless between the two of them.
In the afterglow, Griffith is seen sitting apart from a sleeping Charlotte, clawing at himself and crying. In contrast, Guts has sex with Casca out of love and so their intercourse is brimming with emotion.
In their afterglow, Guts has Casca sleeping in his arms and is shown to be totally content with a smile to match. Final Yamato was, until , the last chapter of the Space Battleship Yamato saga.

But later, when Makoto and Yura accidentally find the young couple having sex in the hot springs bath, they almost get an inferiority complex when they find out how that young couple is so much better at sex than them.
Kare Kano spruced up its one and only sex scene by having flowers cover everything. In Kaze to Ki no Uta , the rape scenes are gritty, shocking and clearly show the characters' pain. In contrast, anything with Serge and Gilbert tends to be loving, tender Arguably deconstructed in Kemonozume , where good guys Toshihiko and Yuka have extremely good sexual chemistry and would really like to get it on. The only problem is they can't, because Yuka keeps transforming into a huge flesh-eating monster when she's turned on.
The heroines in Mnemosyne spend their free time having sexy lesbian encounters. In Monster , when Eva has flashbacks of Roberto, he is shown as an utterly repulsive pig slobbering all over her body.
In contrast, Helenka and Schubert's loving sex scene is gentle and emotive. Sensual Phrase has many sex scenes, and several of them are highly enjoyable for the people involved. Although Sakuya's goodness is rather questionable , he is great in bed, and he plays the trope straighter after he and Aine get married. This is one of the major precepts in the work of Tanaka Yutaka , especially with regard to emotional honesty, open communication, and its ilk.
Makie and Renzaburo in Wicked City. Their sexual encounter is extremely sweet, paused and slow, specially compared with all the rape and Fan Disservice that has been going on.
Doubles as Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex as they both have barely survived an attack from the local demonic Dark Action Girl — who's the same woman that Renzaburou himself had sex with in the beginning. The trope is even more enforced when the viewer realizes that theirs is the only sex scene that is fully pleasant and, more importantly, consensual - i. Takao Itou and Sara Uchida have sex in the third Kasei Yakyoku OAV; it's an emotional, romantic, tender moment, with a beautiful song as background music.

Then he's rewarded with hot consensual love making that would make James Bond jealous. Zigzagged all over the way in Sakura Gari. Souma Saiki is not only unearthly gorgeous but he is very good in bed and often gets pretty nice "action" from his sexual partners in return with Watase offering us all kinds of details , but while not outright evil, the man has VERY serious issues.
And said partners either have their own problems or get hit with misfortune because of Souma. Not to mention, the very kind and softspoken Masataka never really gets "good sex" since he's sexually abused by both Souma and Katsuragi Chivalry of a Failed Knight: The protagonists, Ikki and Stella finally have sweet tender sex for the first time on volume 9.

Goddess saw villains, anti-heroes, and It greatly helps building up her self-esteem. Taken to extremes in the Preacher graphic novels.
The main character, Jesse Custer, prefers having sex with his pretty, blonde girlfriend on the hood of a Cadillac — or in the driver's seat of a stolen hot-rod during a police pursuit. Meanwhile, virtually all of the villains are either sexual perverts to a ridiculous degree, gay, bisexual, or at least French. Or some combination thereof. Done to a similar degree in The Boys , another Garth Ennis work. One thing the villainous supers tend to have in common is their willingness to have sex with just about anyone regardless of gender ; half the time they are seen having sex with prostitutes.
One of the main characters, Billy Butcher, and his CIA boss, Veronica Rayner, are in something akin to a sexual relationship, though that is fueled entirely by mutual loathing and the sex is loud, profane and vitriolic. Pretty much the only character in a happy sexual relation are Hughie and Annie, who enjoy intimate sexual encounters.
Spider-Man gets in on the act as well, but zig-zag it a bit in that Peter Parker and Mary Jane are shown to be quite kinky. Also, in another instance when Peter is working with the Black Cat Felicia makes the comment "I swear, if you weren't good in bed, you'd be useless" to which Peter says "I was good in bed?

The first Silk Spectre has an affair with the man who savagely beat and tried to rape her, leading to an interesting discussion of the emotional implications of rape and its impact on Laurie's parentage, but that's neither here nor there. Rorschach may actually be a straight example, as he doesn't have sex at all and has a firm Sex Is Evil stance there's a hint he may be a repressed homosexual , and it's clear he isn't good people.
It may also have to due with the fact that he first glimpses and notions of sex come from his mother - a prostitute who didn't care if he saw and was emotionally abusive to him. Likewise, Ozymandias doesn't see much personal need for a sexual relation and is more or less Asexual. He lacks the Sex Is Evil mindset, however. Finally, Doctor Manhattan, the only superpowered being in the series uses his powers in the most "interesting" ways during intercourse in hopes of exciting Laurie.
Not only does it end up squicking her out but he knew it was inevitable. Since he is mostly without emotion and is more concerned with the nature of science, it makes sense that his sex scene is both fascinating and lifeless. Quarrel and Crackerjack from Astro City have a very vigorous and enthusiastic sex life.
Crackerjack also Really Gets Around , but Quarrel doesn't mind. Fan Works Found in many fanfics, especially those involving Ecchi or Hentai series with a Downer Ending that has all the main girls being raped into submission by monsters, a Fat Bastard , or a group of lustful men.
