She's really... enjoying herself...

Sex ist eine Schlacht, Liebe ist Krieg (Sex is a battle, love is war)

Rammstein, "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?"

Just another show with sex and violence
Sex is violent

Jane's Addiction, "Ted, Just Admit It..."

Sometimes, when a combat scene becomes a bit too vocal and noisy... it stops being fighting, if you know what I mean. But sometimes, for some characters, the fighting itself actually does become a sexual turn-on. The character's heavy breathing, grunts, and yelps and groans are caused by the fact that they are really, truly—and literally—getting off on the violence (though not necessarily on actual injury to themselves and/or their opponents).

Vampires and the Combat Sadomasochist are particularly prone to this kind of characterization, especially when Hemo Eroticism is involved.

Related to Destructo-Nookie, where the two scenes become one ...well, you know what I mean.

May take less honest tropes such as Belligerent Sexual Tension, Slap Slap Kiss and Kiss Kiss Slap, and The Masochism Tango to a new "exciting" level. The violent Older Brother to Does This Remind You of Anything?

Related to Cat Fight (and the possible cause of the ensuing Fan Service, In Love with Your Carnage and Foe Yay). Often involves characters who are Too Kinky to Torture. Can end in Destructo-Nookie. May also overlap with Looks Like She Is Enjoying It. Compare I Didn't Mean to Turn You On.

No real life examples, please; this is a trope about how characters are depicted in media.
