* Referenced in ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. After Tom Sawyer sees Mina Harker [[OurVampiresAreDifferent bite a man's throat open]], he sardonically notes, "They told me European women had funny ways."
** Even though Mina is British and normally fits the aversion.

* Lampshaded in an episode of ''Series/SonOfTheBeach'', where the word "European" is used as a stand in for "gay". ItMakesSenseInContext.

Even though the aforementioned movies helped establish the image of the sexually straightforward European in the US, they are not examples of this trope as such. Europeans Are Kinky doesn't usually appear in works produced in Europe itself, as a vital part of the trope is that the European character is seen from an outside perspective as an exotic [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Other Other]]. The exceptions are, again, British and Irish works, since the British and Irish rarely tend to think of themselves as Europeans, and usually use the term "Europe" to mean "continental Europe" and cultures very much distinct from their own. Indeed, a big part of British national identity is bound up in being different from those crazy, libertine and morally lax Europeans, so this trope tends to show up a lot in British works especially in those from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

80s. Also, while {{Russia}} is generally lumped in with the rest of Europe in regards to that trope in American works, Russian authors usually distance themselves from it, owing to the Soviet Union's puritanical morals, the socially conservative, HeteronormativeCrusader policies of VladimirPutin, and the general desire of Russia to stay apart from the rest of the continent. Instead, kinkiness in Russian culture is a common quality of the EuropeanUnion specifically.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/CarryOn'':
** ''Film/CarryOnHenry'' had UsefulNotes/HenryVIII marry a French woman for this reason. He is absolutely delighted all the way to the bedroom to consumate their marriage, until the new Queen ate garlic before sex.
** ''Film/CarryOnEmmannuelle'' had the titular Emmannuelle and her husband being sex crazy (the wife moreso) and ending up with practically a "litter" of children.

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', after Eggsy jokingly asks if the imprisoned Swedish princess will give him a kiss for breaking her out, she instantly says she'll give much more than that. When Eggsy has to head off to actually save the world, she says they can do it in the arse if he succeeds. [[spoiler:It is made very clear she doesn't have any problem keeping her word]].

* A ZigZagged trope on ''{{Metalocalypse}}''. Out of the two European members of Dethklok, Skwisgaar (Swedish) is [[AnythingThatMoves easily the most promiscuous and kinky]], but Toki (Norwegian) is by far the ''least'' sexually active on account of his [[ManChild extreme childishness]].
