''Advice from Pinkie Pie'' is a WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic by [=HopeFox=]. You can read it at [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7388605/1/Advice_from_Pinkie_Pie Fanfiction.net]], [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/282432 Archive of Our Own]], or [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/1240/Advice-from-Pinkie-Pie FiMFiction.net]].

Rarity has had several wonderful dates with gentlemanly stallion Topaz Gleam. But when Topaz implies that he'd like to make their relationship sexual, Rarity isn't sure what to do. She seeks guidance from her friends, but Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, and Fluttershy have no experience with stallions, Rainbow Dash is nowhere to be found, and Pinkie Pie can't possibly help with a ''serious'' problem like this…right?

The fic is notable for combining OriginalFlavor dialogue and characterization of the Mane Six with frank and funny discussions of sexuality, '''without any actual sex scenes.'''

!!This FanFic contains examples of:

* {{Angst}}: Rarity's worries about whether she should sleep with Topaz or not are both PlayedForLaughs and shown sympathetically.
* UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}}[=/=]CasualKink: [[spoiler: Pinkie Pie enjoys this. Also, Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash incorporate it into their sex life. Rainbow Dash is a masochistic submissive and Fluttershy is a sadistic dominant.]]
* BiTheWay: [[spoiler: Pinkie Pie.]]
* CelibateHero: Twilight Sparkle, though she does enjoy romance novels.
* CloudCuckoolander: Pinkie Pie, obviously.
-->'''Rarity''': Oh, Pinkie Pie, you're right. Thank you so much for your advice. No matter what happens tonight, it'll be good for us both. I don't know what I'd do without you.
-->'''Pinkie Pie''': Oh, Rarity, I don't know what I'd do without me either. That would be weird! Now go get ready for your date, and remember everything I told you!
* CovertPervert: [[spoiler: Fluttershy.]]
* ADateWithRosiePalms: The only action Applejack's getting is from "good ol' Doctor Hooves." This does ''not'' mean the brown earth pony who lives in a little blue box.
* EthicalSlut: [[spoiler: Pinkie Pie,]] in a rather epic instance of the trope. Equal emphasis is placed on the "slut" part and the "ethical" part.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Pinkie Pie gives advice to Rarity.
* GoodBadGirl: [[spoiler: Pinkie Pie.]]
* HeadTiltinglyKinky: [[spoiler: Pinkie Pie's]] escapades are implied to be this. [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy]]'s sex life isn't exactly vanilla either.
* HeartbreakAndIceCream: Pinkie Pie offers Rarity ice cream after sex with Topaz goes wrong.
* HiddenDepths: All of the Mane Six, in regards to their sexuality, but especially [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie.]]
* IdealizedSex: Thoroughly averted. Rarity knows that sex is more awkward in real life. But she wants it to go well, which is why she's looking for advice in the first place. Sex with Topaz turns out to be even more awkward than Rarity anticipated: [[spoiler: Topaz suddenly can't "perform." To save face, he blames Rarity for being too ugly and dumps her.]] Pinkie Pie helps Rarity get over her disappointment by explaining that the silliness of sex is just part of the fun.
* TheLoinsSleepTonight: [[spoiler: Happens to Topaz when he and Rarity try to do the deed.]]
* MoustacheDePlume: Inverted with romance author Summer Moonlight.
* [[MySisterIsOffLimits My Sister Is Off Limits]]/[[OverProtectiveDad Over Protective Granny]]: Big Mac and Granny Smith. Which is why Applejack is still a virgin.
* MultiWaySex: [[spoiler: What Pinkie Pie did last Wednesday.]]
* NaughtyByNight: [[spoiler: Fluttershy, who's the sexually dominant one in her relationship with Rainbow Dash.]]
* NerdsAreVirgins: Twilight Sparkle. She's more interested in studying than looking for a date.
* NoodleImplements: [[spoiler: Pinkie]]'s "toys."
* OfCourseImNotAVirgin: Twilight Sparkle insists this at first, but quickly gives up.
* OriginalFlavor: The Mane Six are admirably in character despite the mature subject matter.
* ParentsWalkInAtTheWorstTime: Type 1 happens to [[spoiler: Pinkie]] a lot. She takes it in stride.
* {{Pun}}: [[spoiler:"Rainbow Dash must still be tied up somewhere."]]
* TheReveal: Rarity thinks that Rainbow Dash might have some good advice about stallions, but she can't find her anywhere. In fact, Rainbow Dash is [[spoiler: tied up in Fluttershy's bed.]]
* RomanceNovel: Summer Moonlight's "Sir Coppermane" series is apparently quite popular in-universe. Both Twilight Sparkle and Rarity are fans.
* SecretRelationship: [[spoiler: Fluttershy/Rainbow Dash. It's secret because Fluttershy is too shy to let anypony know yet.]]
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Twilight is most definitely ''not'' some recluse who spends all her time studying and would rather read a book than go on a date.
* WhamLine: [[spoiler: "Ooh, ooh, I know! You're worried that he's going to want to stick it in you and you won't know what to do!"]]
