I never use the word myself, but it's a useful descriptor (=warning) when used by other people.

I might use it, thinking back to the college summer I found a stack of someone's abandoned Harlequin romances and read a bunch of them. Some were SUPER rapey: not just because the heroine was raped, but because she ended up with that guy because he was so Passionate, y'know? ugh ugh ugh UGH

Even at the time (c 1977) we were horrified.
