Many fans of ''Literature/HarryPotter'' have joked that the stories are for adults ''as well as'' kids. [[WordOfGod Apparently]] Creator/JKRowling wanted the series to be in the young adults' genre (and even contained ObligatorySwearing in her first drafts) but the publishing company were not up for it.

Many fans of ''Literature/HarryPotter'' have joked that the stories are for adults ''as well as'' kids. [[WordOfGod Apparently]] Creator/JKRowling wanted the series to be in the young adults' genre (and even contained ObligatorySwearing in her first drafts) but the publishing company were not up for it. It's a real shame for some, however, the books and [[Film/HarryPotter the movies]] still contained their fair share of moments that were ''certainly'' not intentional for young children...

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'', when Vernon Dursley complains that Dobby's antics upstairs "interrupted my Japanese golfer joke". [[http://www.yuksrus.com/computers_faxs.html There's more than one famous Japanese golfer joke]], but the punchline to one of these jokes is, "What you mean.... 'wrong hole'?" * Now that you're not 12, [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lo2uv86kMd1qcw1lgo1_500.jpg give this passage]] from ''Chamber of Secrets'' a close read. Alas, in the final chapter it's revealed that Ginny walked in on Percy [[spoiler:kissing his girlfriend.]] * The sixth book constantly refers back to Harry and Ginny's "final snatched moments in darkened corners of the castle" before he breaks up with her before going on his final quest. The same kind of quote gets used anytime there's a party or ball occurring in Hogwarts. ** After Harry and Ginny start their relation, one of the first things Ginny does is dismissing the rumor that Harry had a hippogriff tattooed in the chest. How she finds it out is rather clear. * Don't forget the couples out in the bushes during the Yule Ball. There's a fairly hilarious moment when Snape [[MistakenForGay is a bit confused to see Harry and Ron there]] -- although they'd actually been eavesdropping on his conversation with Karkaroff. * From ''Goblet of Fire'', when [=McGonagall=] lets the Trio use the Transfiguration classroom to practice Harry's new hexes because she was tired of [[OneTrueThreesome "walking in on them"]] everywhere else in the castle. ** From the same book, the wizard who insists on wearing robes instead of Muggle pants because he "likes a healthy breeze 'round my privates, thanks". * In ''Half-Blood Prince'', the narration mentions that Harry was having dreams about Ginny that "made him devoutly thankful that Ron could not perform Legilimency". Wonder what kind of dreams he was having? * Let's face it, [[PsychoForHire Fenrir]] [[MemeticMolester Greyback]] was a [[PaedoHunt pedophile]]. Especially considering that Rowling used lycanthropy as a metaphor for AIDS, which makes him a pedophile looking to spread AIDS to children, not to mention Lupin's worry that he could pass his lycanthropy (as one passes HIV and other [=STDs=]) on to his son... and him, having been infected nearly his whole life, he probably did a fair bit of research on his condition that gave him good reason to fear this happening (i.e. he knows of a case where it has actually happened). * This snippet from the first book. This being the first book, it probably wasn't meant like this ''at all'', but it sure as hell reads differently when you're in your teens or 20s as opposed to when you're eleven or twelve: -->''He pushed the door ajar and peered inside -- and a horrible scene met his eyes. Snape and Filch were inside, alone. Snape was holding his robes above his knees.'' * Aberforth's illicit charms on goats ''[[BestialityIsDepraved could]]'' imply some sort of sexual activity. JKR was asked exactly what Aberforth had done with said goats at a Q&A session: -->'''Fan:''' In the Goblet of Fire, Dumbledore said his brother was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms [JKR buries her head, to laughter] [[BestialityIsDepraved on a goat]]; what were the inappropriate charms he was practicing on that goat?\\ '''JKR:''' How old are you?\\ '''Fan:''' Eight.\\ '''JKR:''' I think that he was trying to make a goat that was easy to keep clean [laughter], curly horns. That's a joke that works on a couple of levels. I really like Aberforth and his goats.

Do the math on that one. ** Especially since Harry's whole time at the Weasley's is played as if Harry is a soldier about to go to war (which he more or less is), and a lot of girlfriends and fiancee's made sure that their significant others ... considered themselves ''real'' men when they left, since they might not come back. * Ron's swear, [[CurseCutShort "Merlin's saggy left]]--" * Another CurseCutShort: Ron's uncle who, at parties, would pull up his robes and pull bunches of flowers out of his-- [[GroinAttack I hope Ron means his ass...]] How else would... [[BrainBleach never mind.]] Although that would (at least partially) explain Bilius' lack of luck with women. * Ron, in the ''Half-Blood Prince'' film, shortly after Harry and Ginny return from the Room of Requirement:
to:
* Harry worrying about Hermione being known as a "scarlet woman". Which was pretty funny. * Don't forget the couples out in the bushes during the Yule Ball. There's a fairly hilarious moment when Snape [[MistakenForGay is a bit confused to see Harry and Ron there]] -- although they'd actually been eavesdropping on his conversation with Karkaroff. [[/folder]] [[folder:Harry Potter and Order Of The lyrics to "A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love": -->''Oh, come Phoenix]] * Ron uses the [[UranusIsShowing Uranus entendre]] again (though he isn't really in his right mind at the time). -->'''Ron:''' Harry, we saw Uranus up close! ''(still giggling feebly)'' Get it, Harry? We saw Uranus. Ha ha ha. * Harry spends 30 minutes [[SexyDiscretionShot offscreen]] "kissing" Cho Chang in the book. Then after when he meets up with Hermione and stir my cauldron\\ And if you do Ron again... -->'''Ron''': Well? How was it? -->'''Harry''': Wet. -->'''book narration''' ''Ron made a noise that might have indicated jubilation or disgust; it right,\\ I'll boil you up some hot, strong love\\ To keep you warm tonight.was hard to tell.'' ** Made even better by the fact that it's ... ''[[{{Sexophone}} jazzy]]''. * ''Deathly Hallows'': Ginny OK, Cho was going to give crying [[spoiler:because she remembered Cedric]]. The point was Ron's reaction. * At Dumbledore's Army member meetup, a Zacharias Smith bothers Harry a birthday / farewell present to remember her by. It was in her bedroom, no gift boxes were evident, and it started with a deep kiss. Do constantly, until the math on that one. ** Especially since Harry's whole time at Weasley twins intervene to mock him. -->'''George Weasley''': ''[imitating Zach]'' "Would you like us to clean out your ears for you?" ''[takes out a strange metal object from Zach's zonko bag]'' -->'''Fred Weasley''': ''[imitating Zach]'' ... Or any part of your body, really; we're not fussy where we stick this. * [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix In the Weasley's is played as if movie]], Harry is a soldier about trying to go practice resisting Voldemort's preminissions from his mind with Snape. Seems innocent enough, until Snape says this rather unsettling explanation: -->'''Snape''': I will attempt to war (which he more or less is), and a lot of girlfriends and fiancee's made sure penetrate your mind. You must attempt to try to resist. * The implication that their significant others ... considered themselves ''real'' men when they left, since they might not come back. * Ron's swear, [[CurseCutShort "Merlin's saggy left]]--" * Another CurseCutShort: Ron's uncle who, at parties, would pull up his robes and pull bunches of flowers out of his-- [[GroinAttack I hope Ron means his ass...]] How else would... [[BrainBleach never mind.]] Although that would (at least partially) explain Bilius' lack of luck with women. * Ron, Umbridge got a KarmicRape from the centaurs in the forest after they dragged her away when she was racist to them. This also links to Greek mythology that stated that centaurs were well-known rapists. When she comes back, the rumor's been spread around the school and the students begin to tease her with imitations of horse hooves, making her panic in a traumatised way. [[/folder]] [[folder:Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince]] * Harry and Ginny share "final snatched moments in the darkened corners of the castle" before they split up. ** After this, Ginny dismisses the rumor that Harry had a tattoo of a hippogriff on his chest... * Harry apparently has dreams about Ginny that "made him devoutly thankful that Ron could not perform Legilimency". * In ''Half-Blood Prince'' film, Prince'', Ron and Lavender stumble into a classroom where Harry is trying to comfort a distressed Hermione. Seeing as Ron and Lavender were perfectly comfortable making out rather passionately in a crowded common room, one has to wonder (or not) exactly why they suddenly felt the need to seek out an empty room. To clarify, the reason why Ron and Lavender didn't just use the mostly-empty room they found is obvious; Ron didn't want to see a distressed Hermione. Why they left the common room in the first place, however, is a mystery... * Ron, [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince in the film]], shortly after Harry and Ginny return from the Room of Requirement:

'''Harry:''' ''(taken aback)'' What!?\\
to:
'''Harry:''' ''(taken aback)'' ''[taken aback]'' What!?\\

** In the same movie, there's Ginny going down on Harry. And by that, we mean kneeling in front of him... to tie his shoe. ** Heck, the Room of Requirement itself. It's described as a hidden room where students sneak off to engage in forbidden activities and risk getting into trouble if caught.

[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Hmm...]] the darkness" with two of Fleur's veela cousins. * Aberforth's illicit charms on goats ''[[BestialityIsDepraved could]]'' imply some sort of sexual activity. JKR was asked exactly what Aberforth had done with said goats at a Q&A session: -->'''Fan:''' In ''Half-Blood Prince'', Ron and Lavender stumble into the Goblet of Fire, Dumbledore said his brother was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms [JKR buries her head, to laughter] [[BestialityIsDepraved on a classroom where Harry is goat]]; what were the inappropriate charms he was practicing on that goat?\\ '''JKR:''' How old are you?\\ '''Fan:''' Eight.\\ '''JKR:''' I think that he was trying to comfort make a distressed Hermione. Seeing as Ron goat that was easy to keep clean [laughter], curly horns. That's a joke that works on a couple of levels. I really like Aberforth and Lavender were perfectly comfortable making out rather passionately his goats. But you know, Aberforth having this strange fondness for goats, if you've read book seven, came in a crowded common room, one has really useful to wonder (or not) exactly why they suddenly felt Harry, later on, because a goat, a stag, you know. If you're a stupid Death Eater, what's the need difference. [[LiesToChildren So, that is my answer to seek out an empty room. To clarify, YOU.]] ** Unfortunately, several other translations have completely missed these jokes, such as the reason why Ron Hungarian, Brazilian and Lavender didn't just use the mostly-empty room they found Russian translations. * ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeedleTheBard'' is obvious; Ron didn't want to see a distressed Hermione. Why they left the common room filled with cuddly {{Radio 4}} innuendo in the first place, however, sections where Dumbledore discusses the content of the fairy tales -- particularly when he mentions a female relative refusing to marry a man after seeing him "fondle a Horklump" (a pink mushroom-like creature covered in bristles). * On the topic of ''Beedle the Bard'', according to {{Word of God}}, no woman has ever laid claim to the [[spoiler:most powerful wand in the {{Potterverse}}]]. As the book says, "[[FreudWasRight make of that what you will]]". * In the seventh book, Ron gets Harry a book whose title was something like ''Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches''. Apparently, it's not all about "wand-work". * The lyrics to "A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love": -->''Oh, come and stir my cauldron\\ And if you do it right,\\ I'll boil you up some hot, strong love\\ To keep you warm tonight.'' ** Made even better by the fact that it's ... ''[[{{Sexophone}} jazzy]]''. * ''Deathly Hallows'': Ginny was going to give Harry a birthday / farewell present to remember her by.

* While most cases of profanity before ''Deathly Hallows'' were carefully written around, ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' makes use of an extended metaphor involving dogs and Harry's nature to have Aunt Marge call Harry's mother a bitch. -->''If there's something rotten on the ''inside'', there's nothing anyone can do about it. ...It's one of the basic rules of breeding. You see it all the time with dogs. If there's something wrong with the bitch, there'll be something wrong with the pup...'' (insert Harry's accidental anger magic here).\\ (later) ''Now, I'm saying nothing against your family, Petunia, but your sister was a bad egg. They turn up in the best families. Then she ran off with a wastrel and here's the result right in front of us.'' ** And between the two is an explicit statement about ''killing'' weak dogs, like Harry.

* From the fifth book, after having spent 30 minutes [[SexyDiscretionShot offscreen]] "kissing" Cho Chang: -->''"Well?" Ron said finally, looking up at Harry. "How was it?" Harry considered for a moment. "Wet," he said truthfully.\\ Ron made a noise that might have indicated jubilation or disgust, it was hard to tell.'' :: OK, Cho was crying because she remembered Cedric. The point was Ron's reaction.

* In Book 5, during the DA members-to-be meeting inside Hog's Head, Zacharias Smith, who Ron and Hermione both agree to dislike, keeps hounding Harry annoyingly, to the point the Weasley twins intercept with this: -->''"Would you like us to clean out your ears for you?" inquired George, pulling a long and lethal-looking metal instrument from inside one of the Zonko's bags.\\ "Or any part of your body, really, we're not fussy where we stick this," said Fred.'' * In ''Prisoner of Azkaban'', the security trolls assigned to guard Gryffindor Tower are described as "comparing the size of their clubs". * In the ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' film, during the credits (which are designed to look like the Maurader's Map), there are [[http://i.imgur.com/A0rIo.gif two pairs of feet in the corner]]... overlapping. It also helps that if you look close the *ahem* outside pair of feet clearly squeeze in and out.

** There are also two occasions when Harry thinks someone else is making a rude hand gesture. In one case, Peter Pettigrew is using his middle finger to point and in the other, Marvolo Gaunt is showing Ogden the ring on his middle finger. You need an IQ of 3 to figure out the rude hand gesture.

* The way Winky talks about Dobby's desire for being paid for his housework at the beginning of book 4 [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything almost sounds like she's talking about a woman who's become a prostitute.]] * In "Chamber of Secrets", George says, "And [Percy] has been sending a lot of letters and spending a load of time shut up in his room ....
