Olympic boxer Ginny Fuchs (yes she does) tested positive for two banned substances back in February. After the positive test she found out that her boyfriend had purchased the items without her knowledge.
Fuchs claimed she ingested the banned substances unknowingly during unprotected sex with her boyfriend. Surprisingly USADA bought her story and as a result they ruled that she would not be punished.
From the Houston Chronicle:
Fuchs learned in early March that an out-of-competition urine test obtained in mid-February contained trace amounts of two banned substances. She subsequently discovered that her boyfriend had purchased products including the two banned substances and was taking them without her knowledge at a time when they engaged in unprotected sex, USA Boxing said Thursday.
USADA said after consultation with its science team and outside experts that the trace amounts found in Fuchs’ drug sample were consistent with sexual transmission, which it determined was a likely explanation for the positive drug test.
With that, USADA determined that Fuchs was not at fault for the positive test and that she would not face sanctions.
She discussed the tainted semen and USADA's ruling with FOX 26's Mark Berman.

Ahhh...the old tainted semen excuse. It happens to the best of us but is rarely believed. It's good to see that love stories still have tainted semen and happy endings.
