->''"Second to get on, first to get off!"''
-->-- '''[[Creator/AchievementHunter Geoff Ramsey]]''' describing falling off a train, ''LetsPlay [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV -- GTA V --]] [[https://youtu.be/oZvj6dksToQ?t=420 Train Hopping]]''

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.

{{Sub Trope}}s include:
* Sexual meanings: DidTheyOrDidntThey, EroticEating, GRatedSex, DoubleEntendre and its {{sister trope}} LampshadedDoubleEntendre, CompensatingForSomething, PhallicWeapon and VisualInnuendo.
* Political/moral meanings: FantasticRacism, SpaceJews, NoBloodForPhlebotinum, ANaziByAnyOtherName, PuttingOnTheReich, and HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster
* Drug-related meanings: ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin, FantasticDrug, DrunkOnMilk, GRatedDrug.
* Birth symbolism: NotReallyABirthScene.

See also FreudWasRight, which posits that characters can apply this to everything thanks to psychological subtext, and FreudianSlip, when the symbolism reveals what the character is really thinking.

[[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.

* As the player progresses in ''Pinball/TheMachineBrideOfPinBot'', the eponymous Machine makes remarks like "I feel...strange..." and "Yes! Yes!" In some instances, she just [[TheImmodestOrgasm out-and-out moans orgasmically.]]
* The playfield for [=WhizBang=] Pinball's ''Pinball/WhoaNellieBigJuicyMelons'' 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.''

* 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: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: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.
** One of the funnier ones involving the Dark Eldar are the ones among the kabals who secretly trade recordings of Wyches in the arena, as certain named ones are far more popular than others. While the Wyches fight purely gladiatorial combat, they must remain graceful and beautiful, and those who watch the recordings get an almost euphoric reaction to them. In other words, they're secretly trading bootleg sex tapes! (And since the gladiatorial fights are usually to the death, bootleg ''snuff'' tapes!)
** A non-sexual example of this trope: The Imperium's citizens are encouraged by the official state religion, the Ministorum, to hate, fear, and persecute psykers, even though the Imperium could not function at all without them[[note]]If you're wondering how they function despite killing a crucial populace, they break the metaphor for an answer: a portion of psykers who would otherwise be executed are given to the Black Ships as part of a federal tithe[[/note]]. We should also mention the entire Imperium, under that same state religion, worships a psyker.
** Slaanesh, hermaphroditic god(dess) of [[TheHedonist hedonism]], is one giant drug abuse metaphor. Seriously, his/her worshipers give us too many examples to choose from.
* 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.

* ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'': "Die Schatten werden länger" ("The Shadows Grow Longer") is about Death trying to seduce Rudolf into suicide. In many, ''many'' productions, it's played as Death [[HoYay trying to seduce Rudolf]].
* 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 UsefulNotes/{{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.
* The musical ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', which tells the life of the first US Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton in a style infused by hip-hop and R&B songs, came about when writer-star Lin-Manuel Miranda realised that the story of Hamilton's life was in many ways similar to the classic hip-hop AntiHero narrative. Both are about a young man from an impoverished and socially unrespectable background clawing himself up from the gutter to a position of power in an atmosphere of revolutionary violence, only to make many enemies along the way which eventually leads to his violent downfall.

* Done for dramatic and tragic effect in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' a few times.
** In the first game, [[spoiler:Manfred von Karma]] was shot in the right shoulder [[spoiler:just before he murdered Gregory Edgeworth]]. In the second, [[spoiler:his daughter Franziska]] is shot in the right shoulder by [[spoiler:Shelly De Killer]]. By this point, [[spoiler:Franziska]] has gotten over her father, and has pretty much banished his name from the family for being a killer, so her being shot in the exactly the same way he was, right before he killed, is an extremely karmic moment.
** In the third game, Godot prosecutes a case where someone died from a poisoned cup of coffee. Later it's revealed that [[spoiler:he himself almost died, and was knocked into a coma, by this same method.]] The case is full of parallels, such as the fact the defendant is a young woman [[spoiler:just like Dahlia was]], and Godot's mention of how the defendant is a "classy lady" for using coffee to hide the bitterness of poison. It's also, tragically in a rather ironic way, the case where we first see something that came about due to Godot [[spoiler:being poisoned. Namely, that he he can't see red on a white background.]]
*** Speaking of which, that itself falls under this. Godot [[spoiler:is "blind" to red on a white background. Redd White was the man who killed Mia, a death that Godot was trying to hide from, blaming Phoenix when he should have "opened his eyes" and blamed the right person. In other words, his literal inability to see red on white, parallels his inability to see that Redd White was the only one to blame for Mia's death.]]
** This series is ''full'' of these, although a lot of them are inverted to the player and some are subverted due to being pointed out in game. They're always used for tragic effect.
*** An example of a subverted one is in case 3 of the first game. Jack Hammer, an actor, at first was thought to have been stabbed with a spear but [[spoiler:it turns out he died from being pushed of some stairs onto a spiked-fence. 5 years prior, the victim himself (allegedly accidentally) pushed a fellow actor from the same stairs and onto the same spiked fence while filming a scene, killing them. What makes this worse, is that the person who killed Hammer did so in self-defense, when Hammer himself went to get his revenge on them for his treatment after that accident he had caused. Thus it's more then likely that Hammer was accidentally killed in the exact same way and place that he accidentally killed someone himself, due to the fact that he had accidentally killed said previously mentioned someone.]]
* To make a point about perspective in ''VisualNovel/Ever17'', You (which is, incidentally, not a second-person pronoun, but a [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep nickname]] for the character's [[OverlyLongName incredibly long given name]]) has Kid try to put a pen back in its cap with one eye closed, leading to the above scene. This is made all the more amusing by the pair's UnresolvedSexualTension, along with You being a two years older.
** To anyone listening to the conversation but not actually seeing what they're doing, it sounds exactly like a porn movie. You is probably aware of that.
** This trope is exactly what the authors were aiming for in that scene; the things those two say in that scene are right out of a hentai. Which is a bit ironic considering this is one of those visual novels without any actual H scene.
** In a different scene near the beginning of Kid/Coco's route, You attempts to make Kid laugh off his amnesia. If you refuse to do so, she'll resort to... sticking her finger up Sara's nose. Sara proceeds to moan sensually as "she and her senpai become one."
* In ''VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoRakuen'', having stayed away all night without eating anything, Makina and Michiru instantly fall upon a container of jam and messily devouring it. A similarly hungry and sleep deprived Sachi follows in moments later, asking Amane whether she thinks it sounds like two girls competing to get something a bit more risque in their mouths before continue to try making triple blowjob sound effects.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Makes Shiki's [[spoiler:killing]] of Arcueid is somewhat... ''questionable''.
-->'''Arcueid:''' It was your first time and you were that skilled?
** Also, during the scene where he stalks her prior to this, he makes several references towards getting excited about "wanting to *** her", and the "long hard object in his pants". After a couple screens of this, it's mentioned that the blanked-out four-letter word is [[spoiler:kill]], and the object he's talking about is his [[spoiler:knife]]. Then after Arcueid has been [[spoiler:kill]]ed by Shiki, she chases him down to "make him take responsibility" for his actions.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* 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]].
* Titli of ''WebVideo/TitlisBusyKitchen'' has slipped some dirty imagery into a few episodes of the show, usually involving a large carrot and two smaller fruit positioned next to one another.
%% * [[Creator/MichaelRosen Michael Rosen]]'s infamous "Drilling for oil" routine. So. Very. Much. %% Zero Context
* A Funny or Die video called [[http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/25cc8b85e1/pantsed-from-june-raphael-derekwaters-and-casey-wilson?_cc=__d___&_ccid=2e5b8c37-fdf4-41ed-a334-d1312f32b2f6 "Pantsed"]] was about a young woman (co-writer June Diane Raphael) who, whenever she began to make out with a partner, would suddenly get pantsed. This is played out as a metaphor for constantly getting into abusive relationships. After her second pantsing in a row, June decides she's finished with men, and we see her in a car with a girl, wearing matching baseball caps and white t-shirts and singing an Music/AniDiFranco song, whereupon the girl asks her if her jeans are button-fly; told they are, the girl says "Good to know" and June looks worriedly out the window. The metaphor is lampshaded by June's friend:
-->'''Casey''': I guess getting pantsed is your destiny.
-->'''June''': [''staring at herself in the mirror''] Yeah, Case, maybe you're right. [''montage of June standing with man without her pants on; sitting on floor, pants-less, tearful; stumbling out of hallway with her pants around her ankles''] Why am I fighting it? I get pantsed. It's who I am.
** Eventually, she meets a nice guy who says he wants to take their relationship to the next level, but he's then horrified when she spontaneously pulls down her own pants.
--->'''Man''': Fuck's wrong with you? [''hastily putting on his shoes''] Jesus Christ, June, I liked you.
--->'''June''': I thought you would like this.
--->'''Man''': Fuckin' skank. [''heads for the door'']
--->'''June''': "Skank", what are you saying? [''shuffles after him, her pants around her ankles''] What did you mean by "next level"?
--->'''Man''': [''leaving''] Jesus Christ, not this! [''slams door'']
--->'''June''': Stop! I'll pull them back up! I'LL PULL THEM BACK UP!
* ''WebVideo/{{Petscop}}'': In Evencare, there are signs about bringing pets home. Two of them say "When choosing pets, pick somebody that you like. You don't have to love them right away," and "Don't be discouraged if they run from you! They really want a home. They're afraid. Show them there's nothing to be afraid of." There's a pet who's kept in a cage, and is awarded for staying there. Its description is "Amber is a young ball. She's afraid to leave home. If her home is good, this is not a problem. She is very heavy, and that makes her life a little harder, as well as yours. What's the safest place you can put her in? You should start thinking about that." [[{{Foreshadowing}} In hindsight]], the reactive attachment disorder themes were there from the beginning. [[spoiler:And to bring it home, there are three different versions of Care available as pets.]]
