* After Harry does an interview about facing Voldemort and it gets published in the Quibbler, he gets several pieces of mail about it from strangers, and Ron looks through some of them.

Added DiffLines:

***However, JK states on Pottermore that "In [her] experience, longer wands might suit taller wizards, but they tend to be drawn to bigger personalities, and those of a more spacious and dramatic style of magic", so 'compensating for something' might not always be the case.

* [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire In the book]], Harry, Hermione and Weasleys sneak over the border to get to the portkey to see the Quidditch World Cup, with the family dressed in Muggle clothing (such as trousers and shirts and trainers). When they get there, members of the public are amazed and confused with their attire, with one wizard claiming that they could never wear trousers because they like "some air [[GoingCommando around my privates]], thanks."

* [[UranusIsShowing Uranus jokes]].



* The "Merlin's beard" curse, and its many variations.



[[folder:HarryPotter and the Philosopher's (Sorcerer's) Stone]]
Many didn't expect the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone the first book]] or [[Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone the movie]] to contain any radar balancing moments, but some parts read and seem pretty different when you're in your teens or your adult years.
* This snippet:
** ''"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."''

** Also note that we find out much later in the book that Percy has a new girlfriend...

to:

** Also note that we find out much later in the book that Percy has a new girlfriend...* Mandrakes "grow up" similarly to humans, going through puberty, etc. Then this happens: "The moment they start trying to move into each other's pots, we'll know they're fully mature."



* The way Winky talks about Dobby's desire for being paid for his housework [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything almost sounds like she's talking about a woman who's become a prostitute.]]



* [=McGonagall=] lets the Trio use the Transfiguration classroom to practice Harry's new hexes because she was tired of [[OneTrueThreesome "walking in on them"]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything everywhere else]] in the castle.



** Hermione ''excuses herself'' from the group because she cannot control her laughter.



* 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. But you know, Aberforth having this strange fondness for goats, if you've read book seven, came in really useful to Harry, later on, because a goat, a stag, you know. If you're a stupid Death Eater, what's the difference. [[LiesToChildren So, that is my answer to YOU.]]



* [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix In the movie]], Harry is trying to practice resisting Voldemort's MindRape with Snape standing in for Voldemort. Seems innocent enough, until Snape says this rather unsettling explanation:
-->'''Snape''': I will attempt to penetrate your mind. You must attempt to try to resist.



* After Christmas, the password to Gryffindor Tower is changed to "Abstinence". The chapter before had Ron admitting that he and Lavender "don't talk much. It's mainly..." "Snogging." Though, "abstinence" doesn't simply refer to not having sex. It can also mean refraining from drinking liquor, which is ironic, given that half the time she has page-time, the Fat Lady is drunk, and in that scene, the Fat Lady is massively hungover. It could also mean that the Fat Lady herself did something that she regretted, and decided to use that password as a reminder to lay off the booze. (Wasn't that just after Hermione told the boys the Fat Lady and her friend had drunk their way through several barrels of wine? Abstinence, indeed!)
* In ''Half-Blood Prince'', Harry and his friends visit Fred and George's new shop. One of the products on sale is a magical daydream-creator, guaranteed to put the user into a hallucination to pass the time during class. There's a label stating that these are not for sale to anybody below sixteen. ''Wow'', Mrs. Rowling. Everybody knows what 16-year olds will be daydreaming about... [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre If You Know What I Mean]]. ''Real'' subtle.

* Right after Dumbledore whisks Harry away from the cafe in the movie, he says something to the effect of, "I fear I may have robbed you of a wonderful evening." Note that Dumbledore's sort of implied to be able to see people's thoughts -- not such a far-fetched idea given his own skill and the existence of Legilimency. And it's hard to think that, given the context, the girl's comment of "I get off at 11" wasn't a DoubleEntendre...



* Even before it was announced he was gay, Dumbledore's interactions with Slughorn sound somewhat like that in the book:
-->'There was no need to stick the wand in that hard', [Slughorn] said gruffly, clambering to his feet. 'It hurt.'
** ... and in the film:
--> '''Dumbledore''': You see, Professor Slughorn possesses something I desire very dearly... And he will not give it up easily.



** It's worth noting that Lucius' wand, according to source materials, is eighteen inches long, making it by a wide margin one of the longest known wands in the Potterverse. Cue the jokes about CompensatingForSomething...
*** 18 inches also makes it longer than Hagrid's wand, which was stated to be 16 inches. And he's half giant!
*** On the other hand, remember that "The wand chooses the wizard". Maybe Lucius actually has ''nothing'' to compensate for?
*** [[GagPenis Lucius Malfoy's wand is nearly twice the length of the average wizard's. The very idea of this being true is quite frightening.]]

* [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19397_the-5-most-depraved-sex-scenes-implied-by-harry-potter_p1.html Cracked]] did an article about the most depraved sex scenes ''implied'' in the series.
** Among other things, the article states that Umbridge was on the receiving end of SexualKarma at the hands of the centaurs in Book 5, and points out that when Polyjuice Potion is taken for a member of the opposite sex, the user receives their genitals as well as everything else.
** There's also another article entitled [[http://www.cracked.com/article_15101_top-6-reasons-harry-potter-isnt-kids.html?wa_user1=4&wa_user2=Movies+%26+TV&wa_user3=article&wa_user4=recommended Top 6 Reasons Harry Potter Isn't For Kids]].
** [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19667_6-horrifying-implications-harry-potter-universe.html?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=fanpage&utm_campaign=new+article&wa_ibsrc=fanpage 6 Horrifying Implications of the Harry Potter Universe]], again from Cracked. Relatively tame deconstruction of the Rowling world-building foibles, right up until we get to #2: the Marauder's Map and its total disregard for privacy: two issues are discussed are how it's entirely likely Fred and George knew the map identified Scabbers as Peter, and that in the credits of the third movie, there's an easter egg where two students are shagging in the corner. Also, #1, which uses the lack of privacy as a point of departure to springboard into the darker elements of magic. To give an example, Cracked draws a solid connection between Love Potions and Date Rape drugs.
* Mandrakes "grow up" similarly to humans, going through puberty, etc. Then this happens: "The moment they start trying to move into each other's pots, we'll know they're fully mature."
* There's multiple "Ron made a rude hand gesture" quotes.
** There are also occasions when Harry thinks someone else is making a rude hand gesture. One is when Marvolo Gaunt is showing Ogden the ring on his middle finger.
* In the Gameboy Advance version of the Chamber Of Secrets game, one of the collectible Chocolate Frog Cards found around Hogwarts is of a woman by the name of Sacharissa TUGWOOD. 'Tug' can apply to... well, given that the boys in Harry's year are approaching puberty, as are their female classmates, one can only assume they'll be spending a lot of time [[ADateWithRosiePalms 'wand-polishing'.]] And 'wood' can refer to... again, 'wands'. As it's a children's game, this does seem quite innocuous, as children at the intended age for the game would hardly be able to figure that out, until you read the description on the back of [[PornStash Sacharissa's card,]] which states that she was a pioneer of Beautifying Potions, and is incredibly attractive...

** This is taken to the next level with the film-Snape and Krum are found in the courtyard used to park Beauxbaton's carriages. On his way to eavesdropping, Harry passes one carriage that's rocking, is glared at by an angry Durmstrang student inside another, and then watches Krum and Snape have their argument....while busy busting disheveled couples who are hiding in carriages.
