** A major plot point in ''Escaping Peril'' is that [[spoiler:Arctic]] was brainwashed into committing suicide by, explicitly, '''disembowelling''' himself. (That method's unnecessary sadism is the main reason why the protagonists disagree about whether or not the perpetrator should be freed.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Literature/DianaTregarde Jinx High]]'' has an in-universe example. The novel is set in the Bible Belt, and the high school prom opens with a Maypole dance. Diana and a minor character who was a hippie in the 60s both recognize the signs of an accurate fertility-ritual Maypole and have to hide laughter. [[spoiler:Until Diana realizes it's the full Sex Magick version instead and finds herself running mystic damage control.]]

* In the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, "The Third Wheel," during the part where Greg reminisces on how he hopes that the guy fixing the toilet wouldn't use it, you can see part of his butt.

* In the novelization of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Web of Shadows'', in a scene cut from the animated feature, Nokama and Matau discuss having bestial urges, like building nests. Matau, who was previously shown to have a great affection towards Nokama, inquires whether she has any "urges" that involve him, before the scene ends. In a later story from another saga, Kalmah apparently finds the properties of organic squid, such as their method of breeding, fascinating.

* Outside of Literature/{{Discworld}}, ''OnlyYouCanSaveMankind'' makes passing reference to Johnny's nickname being "Rubber". This looks like just a random bit of absurdism if you don't know [[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=rubber+johnny what a "rubber johnny" is.]]

** Jarvis got quite a bit of crap past the radar in ''A Warlock in Whitby'', the second book in his ''Whitby Witches'' trilogy. In addition to Jennet's rather questionable crush on Nathaniel Crozier, there's also the matter of Nelda (at seventy years old, a young adolescent by aufwader standards) being [[OldManMarryingAChild made to marry]] tribal elder Esau. Not only that, Esau [[ScarpiaUltimatum forces Nelda to consummate their marriage in exchange for information which could save their tribe]], leaving her pregnant. And, because the curse on their race means pregnancy is effectively a death sentence for female aufwaders, Nelda appears to be doomed.
