From thereon sprung Al Lowe's idea to take ''Softporn Adventure'' and remake it from the ground up, rewriting its script completely into something much funnier, and replacing its [[FeaturelessProtagonist formerly anonymous protagonist]] with Larry Laffer, a computer programmer in his early 40's who decides to get a life and go woo some women and [[AManIsNotAVirgin lose his virginity by the end of his nocturnal visit to]] [[UsefulNotes/LasVegas Lost Wages]]. Being a big fan of TheSeventies, he loves disco and wears a leisure suit (which he and only he thinks is cool) from which the newly reborn ''Leisure Suit Larry'' took its name.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: The goal of the first game. And just to make sure you actually do the deed, if Larry is still a virgin by sunrise (which takes a few hours of game-time), Larry will commit suicide.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted in the games ''LSL2'' and ''LSL3'' proper where he has a character design relatively similar to any other SCI games of the era, and where full portraits show him as somewhat realistic. Played straight for covers though.

Added DiffLines:

* HotterAndSexier: When LSL 1 was adapted for the Japanese market, scenes were far more graphic and explicit.

** Harriet in LSL 8 is a dead ringer for Michelle from AmericanPie. You can even get Larry to lampshade it during the conversation where he [[BreakingTheFourthWall yells at his agent]] with one of the incorrect dialogue choices.
-->'''Larry''': OK, we all saw AmericanPie. Haha. [[WhoWritesThisCrap Let's get some fresh material.]]

* DumbBlonde: Tawni, the blonde topless girl from [=LSL3=]. She make out with a complete stranger (Larry) after he gifted her with his credit card. After she dumped him, Larry scammed her of her money by disguising as a native and selling her a fake carving. She failed to recognize him despite said disguise doesn't alter or cover Larry's face. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking On top of that, she forgot her towel when she left the beach]], which Larry claimed for himself.

* FranchiseZombie: LSL 8 and 9, which were created without Al Lowe being involved.
** Or Sierra, for that matter, since it's been little more than an imprint of Vivendi for years now.
