* This developed a visual gag in the older British satirical comedy show, ''Series/ThatWasTheWeekThatWas'' (TW3). Sometime around 1962, comedian Willie Rushton was seen getting into bed with an impossibly glamorous actress/model type. Amid giggling and sighing, foreplay ensues. The camera then cuts to stock footage of waves crashing against rocks, tall chimneys falling, train going into tunnels, et c. We cut back to Willie Rushton and girl, who are still in bed - but soaked through from the waves, covered in brick dust and rubble from the chimney, and smothered in soot from the steam-train. She is screaming. He is wide-eyed with panic.

* In the gangster spoof ''JohnnyDangerously'', this is parodied (along with SexyDiscretionShot): the title character and his love interest start kissing passionately, the camera pans up to some fireworks... and it cuts to another character, who looks up at the fireworks and remarks "Looks like Johnny's getting laid!"
* When the title aliens' ship crashes in ''{{Critters}}'', teenager April is making out with her boyfriend in a nearby barn. April feels the ground shake from the impact and remarks that "The earth moved", to which her beau (who's barely gotten to second base yet) asks: "Already...?"

* The Mission Success cinematic for the [[VideoGame.BrutalLegend Brütal Legend]] mission "Pilgrimage of Screams" has the Screaming Wall let off a blast as Eddie and Ophelia kiss for the first time.
* The Mahjarrat of RuneScape have a tradition of only mating during earthquakes. They did this because on their homeworld (which is a nightmarish volcanic DeathWorld) they believed that earthquakes were caused by their god Mah and they needed to calm her.

* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' has a whole sketch based on this. We see a couple go to bed and are then shows clips of StockFootage consisting only of this, such as the train-into-a-tunnel, a chimney being blown up playing in reverse (as if it were rising), champagne bottles blowing open and so on (even a clip featuring RichardNixon). The twist is that they are also watching these clips. After they are over they are sitting in the bed, the man with a projector and the girl asking " Oh Bevis, are you going to do anything or are you just going to show me films all evening?"

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Factor}}'': Played straight in the Nation X oneshot. Longshot and and his ex-wife, Dazzler, have just finished having sex when he asks if she felt the ground shaking earlier. She states that was probably just her. They've just missed the entire island full of mutants taking on a giant.
* A one-panel gag in ''ComicBook/CartoonHistoryOfTheUniverse'' has two large dinosaurs "necking" saying this (while the main narrative discussed continental drift).
-->'''Male sauropod''': Did you feel the Earth move?
-->'''Female sauropod''': Honey-tons, that was the continental drift!
* In ''TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain'', after WonderWoman snaps {{Superman}} out of his HeroicBSOD... the two most powerful beings go at it full-bore. There are [[DestructoNookie literal earthquakes and tidal waves]]. When they're done, Diana [[LampshadeHanging actually says]] "Clark. The earth moved."

** Not to mention the ''{{Titanic}}'' episode in which Bender and "Robot Rose" kiss. Bender: "When we kiss, I feel like we're standing knee-deep in cold, freezing water." Which, of course, they are, being on a sinking ship and all.
