Sex Happens

Name Space:
Page Type:
Should We Have This?? I was just thinking it would be nice to have a Tropese buzzword for when there is sex in a story that simply doesn't logically follow from the previous interactions of the involved characters. Essentially, a sexual Wall Banger. PWP porn is obviously based on this trope, but any other possible examples are likely to be highly subjective, so if we make this it might do without examples.

What do you guys think?

    Would Zipless Fuck (or possibly Zipless Screw) work?

    Trope Namer is Fear Of Flying

    The zipless fuck is absolutely pure. It is free of ulterior motives. There is no power game. The man is not "taking" and the woman is not "giving." No one is attempting to cuckold a husband or humiliate a wife. No one is trying to prove anything or get anything out of anyone. The zipless fuck is the purest thing there is. And it is rarer than the unicorn. And I have never had one.
    Erica Jong, Fear of Flying (1973)

    Another quote here:

    Zipless because when you came together zippers fell away like rose petals, underwear blew off in one breath like dandelion fluff. For the true ultimate zipless A-1 fuck, it was necessary that you never got to know the man very well.

    I vote for Sex Happens as a good title, along the vein of Hilarity Ensues, except it's not so much "and then funny stuff happens" as it is "and then they fuck".

    • Both sex scenes in Fahrenheit: The first one being an optional encounter where, if you play your cards just right when your ex-girlfriend drops by at your apartment (offer her a drink, play your guitar for her and then kiss her), she and Lucas will have sex together. The second one, however, is much more egregious: Right before the very finale of the game, Lucas and Carla lie on a matress together for what could very well be their last night together before the Earth becomes covered with ice, while Carla wishes the two could have met under better circumstances...and then Carla decides that she loves Lucas and they fuck. And yes, the previous sentence is basically the only indication that the two have any sort of sexual tension between one another.

    Well if you do it it simply has to be called Sex Ensues...

    Another possible title: And Then They Had Sex. Or maybe Random Fuck.

    Other examples include:
    • The many sex scenes in The Room, which as far as this troper is concerned were inserted just so Tommy Wiseau could have an excuse to see his own naked ass on the silver screen.
    • The sex scene in Uwe Boll's butchering of Alone In The Dark.

    There's one Something Positive strip where Davan is bored at a party, goes up to a random girl and asks if she wants to go home and have sex, to which she replies "Sure", much to the dismay of Jason, who frantically attempts to take notes on any particular gestures or intonations used. Does that count? (Also if someone knows the link to the one I'm talking about...)

    Just in case it escaped anyone, the title was supposed to be a pun on Shit Happens, which I think was pretty clever of myself and I'm gonna defend it pretty vocally.

    Sex Ensues sounds good. Coitus Ensues would go better (since it sounds rather more, um, sophisticated, going with Hilarity Ensues).
  • January 19, 2010
    Another vote for Coitus Ensues

    another for Coitus Ensues. It even drains all the titillation out of the concept, which seems to be a common element in the examples anyway.
