->'''James''': Actually, that's not the worst bit about those six-seater cars because it could be worse if you had your wife in the front ''and'' ''both'' daughters - and ''you'' sat in the back.
->'''Jeremy''': Ugh.
->'''James''': No, but, you do see that occasionally. You see the mother in the front, and then... and then, *cringing* there's a bloke sitting in the back seat and-
->'''Jeremy''': And there's ''nothing'' more tragic!
->'''Richard''': Yeah, it's pathetic.
->'''Jeremy''': It is ''the'' most pitiable sight you can see.
->'''James''': She's effectively saying '[[FreudWasRight you've given me the baby, now get in the back]]'.
->'''Richard''': Yep.
->''[[[{{Beat}} Short pause]] before Jeremy and the audience both burst into a fit of hysterical laughter]''
->'''James''': [[AsideGlance No!]]

Any situation which is made, sometimes for comic effect, sometimes for dramatic effect, to look like another situation -- not in the sense that it is [[NotWhatItLooksLike mistaken for that other situation]] by any of the characters, just in the sense that we the audience see the resemblance. The characters do not. Alternatively it can refer to an [[CaptainErsatz ersatz]] of something more familiar that the audience would immediately recognize in subtext, in order to make it look less {{Anvilicious}}, but it doesn't always succeed in fulfilling the latter. The situation doesn't always have to mean anything sexual, however it is the most common use of the trope.

This sort of situation can lead to a MistakenForIndex plot if some other character hears it out of context. If unintentionally done, this is LooksLikeSheIsEnjoyingIt. If it was done in a work meant for children this is GettingCrapPastTheRadar. Similar to InnocentInnuendo[=/=]VisualInnuendo in that each of these tropes attempts to draw suggestive ideas from the audience; however InnocentInnuendo[=/=]VisualInnuendo attempt to trick the audience into thinking the situation is different from what it really is, whereas this trope is upfront about the situation and merely draws parallels to those suggestive ideas. JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant IronicEcho, which can easily use this trope's title as a LampshadeHanging.

[[folder:New Media]]
* WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd talking about the front cover of the game adaptation of ''Film/DieHard''. At first glance the exploding building looks like the World Trade Center towers. Luckily for anyone's sensibilities, the game came out long before 9/11.
* In ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay'', Matt thinks that ''VideoGame/DisasterDayOfCrisis'' has 9/11 symbolism thanks to the collapsing buildings. Pat doesn't see it.
* Episode 11 of ''WebVideo/ZTrueLongIslandStory'' had Wrestling/ZackRyder catching his dad watching clips of Wrestling/JohnMorrison while vigorously moving his [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shake_Weight Shake Weight]] up and down.
* A non-comedic and {{Squick}}y example occurs in ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'', with Alex White [[spoiler:[[ColdBloodedTorture torturing]] Rosa Fiametta]]. His [[EvilFeelsGood sadistic delight]] at her suffering while making jabs about her sex life, and the emphasis on her struggling and how he repeatedly stabs her, very quickly starts to look like... [[RapeAsDrama something else]].
* In the ''Film/MoulinRouge'' review between Music/{{Brentalfloss}}, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] interrupts to demand why he wasn't included in the crossover. But from the Nostalgia Duo's squirming, his irritation and Floss's complete confusion, it looks instead like a person catching their partner cheating.
* In one of Balddumborat's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhgYIqQm-IE Q&A videos]] as [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo]], she is asked whether pegasus ponies wake up with "[[RagingStiffie morning wing]]" (a reference to the [[MemeticMutation "Wingboner" meme]]). The response: "Oh, gosh, yeah, we do sometimes. I mean, try sleeping on your back or side with a pair of wings. They really cramp up in the morning and feel horribly stiff. It takes a while to shake them out. But at least we don't have magic messes in the morning like unicorns!"
* Snake's description on how he wants his weenie roasted in 'The Camping Webisode' of ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'', which is why Martha lets Andy get away with his perverted "Oh my!" [[DopeSlap without slapping him.]]
-->'''Snake''': Make my weenie warm on the inside, but still cold and slick on the outside. It'll slide down my throat easier that way.
* ''Series/{{Noob}}'' :
** At some point, Gaea, female and [[TheScrooge very greedy]], is alone with an older, male player whose dialogue suggests he's about to ask her for money. Her reaction to this? Looking very worried and blurting out the line "Don't come any closer, especially if you want what I think you want!".
** A plotline involving [[spoiler:a top player who turned up to be getting his avatar illegally enhanced beyond what game mechanics allow]]. Now, what would be the equivalent of that if the webseries was a sports story rather than about [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMORPG]] players?
* In ''WebVideo/JakeAndAmir'', the two title characters' bizarre friendship is often portrayed as a gay relationship. Amir constantly wants to spend time with Jake, becomes jealous when Jake spends time with other people, and, on one occasion, received a marriage certificate (from a drag queen) stating that the two were officially wed. Jake is more aware of the connotations and tries to avoid them, but a few episodes depict him as equally jealous when Amir has a girlfriend; in another arc, he gets temporarily transferred to California, and meets a sexy coworker, only to drive her off by thinking and talking about Amir nonstop. The whole situation is lampshaded in an episode featuring Pat and Sarah: Sarah points out that, to the casual observer, the two seem to be a married gay couple. Of course, this being Website/CollegeHumor, the episode has Jake and Amir by the elevators, fighting in a way that's deliberately designed to look like gay sex.

[[folder:Pinball]]
* As the player progresses in ''Pinball/TheMachineBrideOfPinBot'', the eponymous Machine makes remarks like "I feel...strange..." and "Yes! Yes!" In some instances, she just [[ImmodestOrgasm out-and-out moans orgasmically.]]
* The playfield for [=WhizBang=] Pinball's ''[[Pinball/WhoaNellieBigJuicyMelons Whoa Nellie! Big Juicy Melons]]'' is filled with these and DoubleEntendre, usually involving the three sexy [[FarmersDaughter Farmer's Daughters]] and their big melons.
-->'''Hellen:''' Who don't like big juicy melons?
* The backglass of Creator/{{Bally}}'s ''[[Pinball/PlayboyBally Playboy]]'' pinball includes the magazine's tiny "Femlin" mascot straddling a champaign bottle between her legs.
* ''Pinball/SilverballMania'' shows a naked (chrome) man who is... [[http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2156&picno=36191 "playing" a pinball machine]] rather ''enthusiastically.''

[[folder:Radio]]
* An extended gag in one of Denis Norden's monologues on ''My Word'' involves him finding an ex-girlfriend "walking the streets". Even after it becomes clear he means she's a traffic warden, the metaphor continues.
-->"If it wasn't for men like you, there'd be no need for women like me!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Stand-up Comedy]]
* Creator/GeorgeCarlin's 1991 routine "Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf" points out all of the phallic and sexual innuendos of the first Gulf War. "Imagine an American President using the sexual slang of a thirteen-year-old to describe his foreign policy."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** Descriptions of the biological principles behind Tyranid biomorphs are uncomfortably sexual. Especially the [[http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1300158&prodId=prod350004a Pyrovore]].
** Absolutely anything to do with [[NightmareFetishist the Dark Eldar]]. Torturing people to death then eating their souls is essentially their version of sex, and it just gets worse from there. "My playthings break ''so'' easily." And on a related matter, absolutely anything to do with Slaanesh.
* In one of the ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' tie-in novels, the signature characters Albrecht and the Margrave each take out their respective ancestral {{BFS}}. Albrecht is pleased to note that his is bigger.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' is loaded with political and social commentary, but while sticking to themes on the RedScare does a variation with mutants. All of them are executed upon discovery except for a small few who are forced to wear yellow armbands at all times (black if their uniform is yellow) and not allowed the same privileges or freedoms as the rest of Alpha Complex, which already doesn't have much. Player opinion is out on whether or not this is meant to represent Jewish people or oppressed minorities in general.

[[folder:Theater]]
* There are parallels drawn in ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'' between God's abandonment of Heaven and Louis' abandonment of Prior.
-->'''Belize:''' Abandoned.\\
'''Prior:''' Yes.\\
'''Belize:''' I smell a motif. The man that got away.\\
'''Prior:''' Well it occurred to me.
* In ''Theatre/FiniansRainbow'', when Finian learns Og the {{leprechaun}} came to America without a passport, he threatens to have him deported. As Og starts to flee, Finian accuses him: "You're a member of a subversive underground group takin' its orders from Dublin!"
* ''{{Theatre/Wicked}}'': "What Is This Feeling?" begins with this lyric: "What is this feeling so sudden and new? I felt the moment I laid eyes on you. My pulse is rushing. My head is reeling. My face is flushing. What is this feeling fervid as a flame? Does it have a name? Yes. '''Loathing'''. '''''Unadulterated loathing'''''". Sorry darlings, but that isn't loathing; it's ''[[LesYay lust]]''. Then again, they have been [[WordOfGay confirmed]] to have romantic interest in each other, and Stephen Schwartz (composer) did this intentionally to highlight the irony of using common phrases from love songs in a song about hate instead.
* In the ''Franchise/{{Shrek}}'' musical adaptation, Pinocchio shouts [[AmbiguouslyGay "I'm good, I'm wood, get used to it!"]] during a song titled "Freak Flag" which rallies the {{Fairy Tale}}s creatures against Farquaad. Already sounding more like a song for a gay pride parade than a theme for any RagtagBunchOfMisfits.
* In ''Theatre/ThePajamaGame'', when Sid is trying to con Gladys out of the key to the account books (which is dangling around her neck), the dialogue makes it sound as if he's asking for the key to her chastity belt ("I'm a desperate man, and I hate to ask a cute kid like you to do me a favor, but...").
* In ''Theatre/{{Aida}}'', the imprisoned Aida is alone with her captor Radames. He takes off his shirt, saying, "Do you know what's going to happen now?" Several actresses in the role play Aida as being VERY fearful that he's about to force himself on her. He instead orders her to wash his back, something that at the very least is meant to similarly degrade her, at worst, meant to symbolize a rape.
* In the musical version of ''Main/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' (and TheMovie made from it), the song ''The Music of the Night'' could be seen as an attempted seduction. The lyrics are highly-suggestive euphemisms (The Phantom is singing about his Music and the Dark/Night, but could just as easily be substituted for sex). Christine faints towards the end of the song, so ultimately nothing happens.
* ''Theatre/{{Brand}}'' by Creator/HenrikIbsen has a jarring Christmas scene involving a homeless mother and her child knocking at Brand's door, begging for clothes for her frozen child. The scene plays heavily into the legends of St. Martin and other saints, sharing their clothes with a beggar in the snow, who turns out to be Christ. It also plays in on the Christmas gospel, with the mother Mary seeking shelter and giving birth (at Christmas, of course) to {{Jesus}} himself. To drive the point home, Brand`s own son is dead, and his wife grieves over her dead son. But given the Christmas references, it is impossible ''not'' to share with the paupers. The scene makes an {{anvilicious}} TearJerker, because we know this is breaking Agnes completely.
* In ''Theatre/ThrillMe'', "Roadster" is honestly about child murder, and not anything sexual. And if you can find a show that can say, "Feel the power of my engine," without making it about sex, you have an ''incredibly'' skilled performer.
* In ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'', there is a clear parallel between the Big Bad Wolf and Prince Charming; they are played by the same actor. Reminds me of the warnings that all males can be predators.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Video]]
* The WebVideo/MinutePhysics video ''The Hairy Ball Theorem'', which is about the topological theorem of that name which states that [[DoubleEntendre you can't comb a ball totally flat if it's covered entirely with hair]]. The narrator then goes on to say things like "don't go wasting your time [[DoubleEntendre playing around with a hairy ball]] to try to prove this wrong". At the end, the narrator says that, since the theorem applies not only to balls but any 3-dimensional objects without any holes, the next time a mathematician gives you trouble, you should ask them if they can [[DoubleEntendre comb a hairy banana]].
