Buffy and Angel episodes included in a list of fatal encounters [NSFW]. io9 has created a list of potentially fatal sexual encounters fom sci fi. The body jumping demon from "Lonely Hearts", and Buffy and Riley's marathon session in "Where The Wild Things Are" are included.

Add every date Xander was ever on to this list and you're golden.
I'm a bit confused re: "Where the Wild Things Are." Was that encounter meant to be fatal to the participants, or the audience?
I love "Lonely Hearts". In my opinion one of the best ANGEL episodes.
Nice one, BAFfler :). Surely Buffy and Angel was considerably more fatal than Buffy and Riley?
BAFfler, let's be fair... Buffy and Riley's adventure may have been a little nauseating, but that episode had a lot of important character moments for the rest of the cast.

For instance, it's the first time we see Giles sing.

Nice list. The rape clip from Liquid Sky made me want to heave tough.
Oh yeah, Alyssa Milano during her topless phase!

I always loved Lifeforce as a kid. The Henry Mancini soundtrack and the naked soul sucking alien vampire chick was very cool to a boy of 13.

I agree that the Buffy angel sex scene was more fatal, especially for Angel, eventually anyway.
Sex and death, the ultimate recurring theme. I found that a bit depressing, though.
Interesting list. I was glad to see American Gods and Dresden Files get a shout-out.
Angel/Buffy, definitely more fatal. Also Spike/Buffy falling through the floor, bringing the house down... don't try this at home, kids! ;)

I agree. I'm just into season 5 in my perpetual BtS re-watch
(Three knee surgeries in three years = many late night BtS marathons). I've skipped WtWTA in the past (one of the very few) but decided to give it another try, this time.
I caught those "other chatacter" moments too, as well as the fact that the basic premise was pretty creepy and I loved what it said about the kind of sexual repression that demonizes natural curiousity in the very young.
I think it's a much better ep than I originally gave it credit for, although still one of my least favorites.
I just can imagine that if Buffy was in her "experimental" fase with faith in Where The Wild Things Are simple the world would be burned in a nuclear hecatomb.
What about "Carpe Noctem" from Angel ?
