** In "Killed by Death", Willow mentions that she and Xander used to like PlayingDoctor (With medical textbooks and things). She's apparently ''still'' unaware of the real meaning of it, and is very confused when Xander says he didn't have the heart to tell her they were playing it wrong.

Sister trope of NotWhatItLooksLike.
%%Actually there is not much of a difference between the two.

This is related to OutOfContextEavesdropping, and the polar opposite of both GettingCrapPastTheRadar and AccidentalInnuendo. See also DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything and ThatCameOutWrong. Sometimes prompts someone to say [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow "Is That What They're Calling It Now?"]] Compare AccidentalPun, where a non-sexual remark is misinterpreted as, well, a pun; OrgasmicCombat, when fighting sounds like...something else; and HaveAGayOldTime, when something sounds sexual because language marches on. Contrast GRatedSex.

just speech.

This is related to OutOfContextEavesdropping, and possibly from a misinterpretation of a SexualEuphemism. It's the polar opposite of both GettingCrapPastTheRadar and AccidentalInnuendo.

** ''Webcomic/PvP'' had [[RunningGag about a week straight of these types of gags]], including Skull thinking it meant Brent was actually a SuperHero, and culminating in Cole getting GenreSavvy and saying he knew they were just moving a desk around...except that time Brent and Jade actually ''were'' having sex in the office.

** Before she was a Canadian pop star, Robin was on a kids show called Space Teens. It contained truckloads of InnocentInnuendo. It included such bits as the 'Beaver Song' and two teenage girls solving math problems while controlling a very long joystick to the encouraging words of Alan Thicke. The cameraman had shaky hands so all the footage is extra 'bouncy'. Barney even lampshades this by describing Robyn's TV career as one would describe that of a porn actress.
