->''"You read me wrong.\\
I wasn't trying to lead you on,\\
Not like you think.\\
[[TropeNamers I didn't mean to turn you on]]."''
-->-- '''Cherelle''', "[[TropeNamers I Didn't Mean to Turn You On]]"

{{Alice|AndBob}} has a huge crush on Bob. Now all of a sudden, it seems that everything Bob does or says lately comes with a free DoubleEntendre.

Alice always seems to be right behind him whenever he bends over to pick something up, or having him around to help rearrange things in the garage always seems to bring them uncomfortably close together, which nowadays, is anything within five feet. And she's nearly forming puddles at her feet (from sweat, [[FreudWasRight guttermind!]]) when [[HandsOnApproach he helps her with her backswing]].

Alice would probably love to do nothing more than jump Bob right then and there, but she can't. She may already be married (and she doesn't want to cheat), or maybe Bob is, or maybe they've been LikeBrotherAndSister [[ChildhoodFriendRomance all their lives]]. Or it could just be that she's [[CanNotSpitItOut too shy to speak or act]] on her feelings, or they're in public, or maybe Bob's too young or old for her, or any combination of the above or more.

And the most infuriating thing is, Bob is ''[[ObliviousToLove totally unaware]]'' of these feelings he's stirring up inside of her. Or Bob may secretly feel the same way, but he has [[CanNotSpitItOut the same problems with self-expression]]. It takes a special talent for a TwiceShy couple to both be doing this to each other, but stranger things have happened.

For those around HelloNurse or the ChickMagnet, [[ButForMeItWasTuesday this might be called "Tuesday."]]

Compare with StupidSexyFlanders. HeadbuttThermometer is usually a subcase of this. ImaginedInnuendo may be the cause.

If {{Half Human Hybrid}}s, PettingZooPeople, or a CuteMonsterGirl is involved, FantasticArousal often occurs.

Compare to CluelessChickMagnet, MasterOfTheMixedMessage.

The trope title comes from an old song from the 1980s by Cherelle. Its video featured a breakdancing Film/KingKong. Covers of the song have been done by Robert Palmer and Mariah Carey.



[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* As seen above, in the earlier chapters of ''Manga/GirlFriends'', Akko does this quite often to poor Mari. Of course, Akko might have [[spoiler:acted subconsciously]].
* In [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/2246/mahou-sensei-negima_v21_ch190_by_aquastar/16 chapter]] [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/2246/mahou-sensei-negima_v21_ch190_by_aquastar/17 190]] in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi [[WindUpKey winds up]] [[RobotGirl Chachamaru]] in order to keep her going. Chachamaru normally finds this mildly pleasurable when done by someone who knows what they're doing. When Negi does it, he winds the key too hard, and pumps way too much magic into it, and Chachamaru has to clamp her hands over her mouth to keep from [[TheImmodestOrgasm screaming in pleasure]]. Completely oblivious to what just happened, Negi then promises to wind her up every day, as long as she needs him to. Considering the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything obvious subtext]], Evangeline's oft-repeated threats to "[[CoolAndUnusualPunishment wind her up]]" from earlier on in the series--complete with Chachamaru [[FetishFuel begging "not too hard, please"]]--suddenly become [[BlackComedyRape a lot more funny]]. The winding thing comes up again later, when [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/2266/mahou-sensei-negima_v23_ch210_by_aquastar/7 Asakura realizes the implications]]. Naturally, she [[CrossingTheLineTwice takes it a bit too far]]. [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/2319/mahou-sensei-negima_v29_ch263_by_enigma Chapter 263]] takes the "winding" into '''overdrive'''. Poor Chachamaru.
** In the anime adaptation ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'', Konoka's attempts to cheer Asuna up during the {{Fanservice}}-laden BeachEpisode ends up with her unwittingly waving her ass in Setsuna's face, which nearly gives her a heart attack.
** It also appears that Asuna does this to Setsuna [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/2256/mahou-sensei-negima_v22_ch200_by_aquastar/17 here]] by touching [[FantasticArousal her wings]] a certain way.
** Negi [[HeadbuttThermometer checking Asuna's temperature]] while she's under the effects of a LovePotion.
* In chapter 39 of ''Kodomo no Jikan'', Aoki-sensei is showing the kids how to calm a cow and milk it - which entails calling its name in a low and soothing manner - while a bra-less (broke it early in the chapter) Houin-sensei stares nervously. It makes her become increasingly turned-on as her crush massages and squeezes the teats of the cow, which shares her given name.
* In ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' the Italy brothers have [[IdiotHair curls]] that act as [[FantasticArousal erogenous zones]]. [[HoYay/AxisPowersHetalia Germany is shown pulling on Italy's more than once]] without having the slightest idea of the reaction it causes. Given their status as OfficialCouple, this is to be expected.
** Spain with Romano. At one point he pulls on Romano's curl to get his attention, not knowing that it only serves to make Romano more distracted. Romano immediately freaks out thinking that Spain is a pervert.
* ''Manga/TheTyrantFallsInLove'': What should have been a simple haircut becomes a test of Morinaga's self-control when he discovers highly sensitive areas around Souichi's ear; areas which he could conceivably put to good use. His will finally cracks when he tells Souichi to close his eyes and tilt his face upward so that he can snip his bangs...only to find that he's inadvertently set Souichi up into the perfect posture for a kiss. Souichi himself has fallen victim to this trope at least once, when Morinaga's efforts ''not'' to jump him only ended up turning him on instead.
* In chapter 200 of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', in which the [[MoeAnthropomorphism personification]] of a dimensional gate asks [[UnluckyEverydude Keichi]] to unlock her with a '''very''' big key. [[TheHecateSisters Various other characters]] [[LampshadeHanging comment on]] [[FetishFuel what their dialogue sounds like.]]
* Genkaku from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' gets incredibly turned on by Nagi killing people, including [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/deadman_wonderland/v05/c018/29.html an instance where it's made obvious he gets a hard-on]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/deadman_wonderland/v05/c018/30.html from Nagi crushing some poor guy's skull]].
** Which is a case of InLoveWithYourCarnage from Genkaku's side of things.
* Whenever Train from ''Manga/BlackCat'' kills or is about to kill someone, an unfortunate byproduct is [[BigBad Creed]] getting incredibly aroused. When Creed starts displaying his... * ahem* '' happiness'' more openly, Train gets very disturbed.
** It's especially weird in an anime-only Train smashes Creed's, er, sword with his gun, and Creed lies there mumbling, "That's it... it's shocking..." with tears in his eyes. Train seems deeply creeped out by this response.
*** Still ''another'' example can be found in a scene where the two fight in hand-to-hand combat and Train ends up trying to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_%28grappling%29 immobilize Creed through a grappling maneuver.]] Having been trapped in this position, the latter proceeded to ''writhe'' and ''moan'' in what appeared for all the world to be '''''[[ImmodestOrgasm complete and total ecstasy.]]'''''
* ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'''s title character does this [[RunningGag all the time]] to Nagi. Also to the other girls in his UnwantedHarem. Hell, an entire chapter was devoted to him unwittingly doing this to various female classmates.
* Pick a scene involving Manga/{{Naruto}} and Hinata. Chances are this trope has been invoked.
** See also the Mizukage and her teenage bodyguard Chojuro. Her version of the fever check involves [[HeadbuttThermometer touching forehead to forehead]].
* This trope is the ever present peril in ''[[Manga/{{Karin}} Chibi Vampire]]'' (At least the first dozen chapters or so).
* ''Manga/OmamoriHimari'' offers a strange example: [[spoiler: Ageha bites Yuuto's neck and drinks his blood. Next frame, we see Ageha panting in pleasure, fondling her own breasts with one hand and trying desperately to not put the other one between her legs and satisfy herself. Or rape him right there, for that matter. And Yuuto? Unconscious on the floor. Seems his blood is waaaaay too delicious and arousing for demons. And that's a demon hunter we're talking about...]]
** Makes a certain kind of sense. Such appealing targets would naturally be sought out first, naturally leading to training. In terms of the present day, it draws the various youkai to those that can handle it, instead of letting them prey on others.
* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', Sousuke might as well be called a human aphrodisiac. This trope is such a common occurrence with Sousuke, with him [[ChasteHero not even realizing]] that he's doing something to make his admirers' hearts beat faster. It most commonly occurs with Kaname (including an instance where he accidentally touched her breast, which resulted in her getting ''really'' turned on, an instance where she misunderstood that he was going to kiss her, an instance where she misunderstood his proposition to her as wanting to have sex with her, and an instance where she got turned on seeing him asleep, and [[DudeShesLikeInAComa had a hard time resisting not kissing his soft lips while he was asleep]]). He tends to have this effect on Tessa, during the fewer times when he interacts with her, as well. And during ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'', his admirer Ena Saeki confesses that watching him work so diligently "made her heart beat out of her chest" (though the things he was working diligently on were [[HeroicComedicSociopath planting land mines in the school]]). And then there's how he accidentally managed to turn [[AxCrazy Gauron]] on ''immensely'' during their [[LoveAtFirstSight first meeting]] when Sousuke was twelve... simply by Sousuke [[InLoveWithYourCarnage killing soldiers and looking at Gauron with his "beautiful" eyes.]] Which had [[StalkerWithACrush disastrous results]] for Sousuke in the long run. Later, it's even revealed that Sousuke unknowingly turned Gauron on yet again, as Gauron reveals to him that during their fight in Khanka, he was so pleased that Sousuke still had such [[WhatBeautifulEyes beautiful eyes]], and he [[DepravedHomosexual "really wanted to]] [[HoYay fuck him up]] [[FoeYay the ass."]]
* In episode 5 of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', Alto and Sheryl wind up hiding together in a single locker of the men's locker room - positioned so that their legs are intermingling and Sheryl's...''*ahem* '' is brushing up against Alto's hip. Unintentionally intimate enough as it is already, Alto's phone goes off...and it's on ''vibrate''. Thank God that Sheryl is a practitioner of TheModestOrgasm.
* In ''Manga/MidoriNoHibi'', Seiji unknowingly turns Kouta on a ''lot'' when he [[FingerSuckHealing sucks Kouta's injured finger]]. It's all enough to make Midori feel ''very'' uneasy...
* Natsuru does this to Akane in ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'' absolutely constantly.
* Rito of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' does this to a great many of the girls, but the stand-out case is most probably Mikan in ''[[ToLoveRuDarkness Darkness]]'', where a HeadbuttThermometer, combined with trying to hold back the effects of a LovePotion leads to what is most definitely an ''orgasm'' in the uncensored volume.
* Occurs between [[HoYay Shion and Nezumi]] in ''LightNovel/{{No 6}}'' volume 5 of the novel.
* One bonus chapter of ''Manga/FairyTail'' has Mira put the idea in Lucy's head that Natsu may like her. Suddenly the fact that Natsu has NoSenseOfPersonalSpace (to the point of frequently entering Lucy's house without permission) stops being something annoying her friend does because he doesn't totally get social norms and becomes proof that he really does have a crush on her.
* Happens practically OncePerEpisode in ''StrawberryShakeSweet'': somehow, Ran will always find a perfectly good reason to get all touchy-feely with her senpai Julia; a {{nosebleed}} from lovestruck Julia will usually ensue. Apart from the comedic value, this is also an early clue that [[spoiler: Ran herself is kind of crushing on Julia from the start.]]
* Kase and Yamada of ''Manga/KaseSan'' are that special kind of TwiceShy that are both doing this to one another. In Kase's case, it's sometimes deliberate HintDropping, but Yamada just really is that awkward.
* Nozaki of ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' has moments when he acts quite boyfriend-like with Sakura ([[SingleTargetSexuality much to her delight]]) without him meaning to be or realizing the effect he has on her.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]] from Franchise/{{Batman}} is guilty of this to a ridiculous degree. At one point in his publication had six simultaneous acknowledged love interests, and has been referred to as a "factory for broken hearts."
* GreenArrow has inspired this a few times. Both of them, come to that. Recently, one of Green Arrow's villains was on the business end of a Green Arrow Accidental Seduction when he saved her life--she decided to fixate on him and become an insane StalkerWithACrush. As you do.
* When this happens to ComicBook/SpiderMan, it usually goes on to blow up in his face. Women occasionally fall for Peter Parker's dorky charms [[ObliviousToLove without him realizing it]], and then when he has to go out and be Spider-Man or pursue his acknowledged love interests, the women resent him for it.

* Take ''any'' fanfiction where you have characters with sexual tension and at one point there is going to be a moment that turns the two of them on. Hot, passionate sex is optional.
* In ''FanFic/ADayIndoors'' by Ambrant Arandel, [[MahouSenseiNegima Kotaro]] accidentally gets Natsumi, Chizuru, and Ayaka all hot and bothered without meaning to [[InnocentInnuendo or even knowing he did it]].
* Played with in an ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' fanfic where Holly and Artemis are discussing something while her headset is on (meaning, in this case, that Foaly and the majority of the [=LEPrecon=] can hear her). She asks a question, which inevitably leads to [[InsufferableGenius Artemis]] diving into a complex answer. About two sentences in, she irritably mutters, "I didn't mean to turn you on," referring to his habit of going into overly-detailed explanations. Recon, being the perverts they are, mistake it for this trope and burst out laughing. Embarrassed, she starts yelling at them (quite loudly) about what perverts they are and how no, she didn't turn Artemis on ''that way.'' Artemis stares blandly at her until she's finished and says something {{deadpan|Snarker}}.
* In some of ''Chance Encounter 2'' and almost all of ''3'', Balian is this to Cassandra. Everything he does makes her love him more, and, Balian being Balian, he is totally oblivious until he is told. Whereupon he goes bright red.
* The ''Literature/HarryPotter'' {{fanfic}} ''Semantics''[[note]]Probably[[/note]] subverted this trope. Most of the fic revolves around Harry struggling with an attraction to Hermione, not helped by the fact that every other thing that comes out of her mouth seems to be AccidentalInnuendo, and it suddenly seems like she [[EroticEating eats everything in an erotic way]], unknowingly of course. At the end of the fic, after Harry's given in and jumped Hermione, it's revealed that she was doing it all on purpose to entice him.
* Naruto and a blind Hinata do this to each other through the years in ''Blind''. They are all [[CrowningMomentOfFunny '''HILARIOUS'''!]]
* In chapter 7 of ''[[Fanfic/WeightlessMassEffect Weightless]]'', after losing Kaidan on Virmire, Shepard isolates and starves herself in her cabin. Garrus brings her some food and she ends up turning him on with her [[EroticEating eating]]. One thing leads to another to an AlmostKiss, and it gets worse (not in a good way) after that.
* In ''Fanfic/AnAnthemForShelteredBays'', Eren, who was a former mermaid and an InnocentFanserviceBoy, who share a bed with Levi sleeping in the buff. Levi, who [[SlashFic has romantic feelings]] for Eren, gets understandably frustrated.
* Juane and Pyrrha to each other in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9721717/3/Massages Massages]] while Juane was giving her a [[CaptainObvious massage]]. Crosses into DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything since their [[LifeEnergy Auras]] where melded together for the massage.

* Sam watching Mikaela checking out Bumblebee's engine in ''Film/{{Transformers}}''.
** She may have been doing it on purpose.
* Ever see Creator/MelBrooks' ''Film/YoungFrankenstein''?
-->"Are you ready, my dear? This is it; Elevate me."
-->"Now ... right here?"
-->"Yes, yes! Raise the platform!"
-->"Oh! Ze platform, Ja!"
* ''Literature/{{Lolita}} 1997'' is full of examples of this between Humbert and Lolita (though later on it appears that Lolita started doing it more on purpose...).
* ''Film/SomeLikeItHot'' features a memorable scene where Creator/MarilynMonroe squeezes half-naked into Jack Lemmon's train berth late one night, completely unaware that her new friend "Daphne" is really a guy in drag running from the mob. HilarityEnsues as he desperately struggles to stay in character.
* A byproduct of the lycanthropic curse in the aptly named film ''Film/{{Cursed|2005}}'' causes those around them to be extremely attracted to the one who is cursed. The newly cursed protagonist Ellie especially notices this with a male assistant of hers, and her brother Jessie is surprised when it happens to [[spoiler: the JerkJock Bo]]... neither of which the siblings had any intention in pursuing.

* In ''Literature/{{Phenomena}}'' poor Alk can't catch a break, if a girl looks at him, with the exception of his sister happily, as much as looks at him does he blush.
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'': Edward just doesn't see how dazzling he is. Bella is happy to tell him.
** Bella arguably does the same thing with Jacob in their first encounter. Her attempts at flirting to find out more about the Cullens are a little too effective.
** Bella also doesn't see how beautiful she is to Edward, but since he is the strong responsible man he has to be the one denying them sex. At least until they are married.
* In the ''Literature/{{Outlander}}'' series, Jamie Fraser proves himself something of a master of this trope with Lord John. Isn't his fault that the man has a thing for older guys, amicable chess games and good Lord, that accent. (Unfortunately, when Jamie figures this out, his reaction is not a particularly happy one.)
** Also, both in ''A Breath Of Snow And Ashes''-- Lizzie is having a seizure, and of course [[SingleMindedTwins Kezzie and Jo]] have to help her out, right? Of course, Lizzie's treatment borders on IntimateHealing... [[TwinThreesomeFantasy Whoops.]] And Phaedre [[spoiler:ends up accidentally turning on Duncan by way of breakfast and some involuntary physical reactions to appealing young women leaning over one in bed early in the morning.]]
* Phèdre in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' is an ''anguisette'' and cursed to feel pain and pleasure as one. Any bit of pain will register as pleasure for her. So when she had to get her marque (read tattoo that covers most of her back) worked on she was reduced to an orgasm laden mess. The guy doing the job even complains about how annoying it is to work on someone who is constantly writhing in ecstasy while he's trying to apply the tattoo, just like his grandfather (who did the last anquisette's marque) told him.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Tape", after hearing a sexy (but joking) [[ArousedByTheirVoice voice message]] from Elaine, George finds he can no longer even sit in a car with her without feelings of The Urge.
** In fact, by the end of the episode, all of the male characters are enamoured with Elaine after hearing the tape.
* An episode of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' began with Mike and the Bots accidentally turning each other on by greeting each other, apologizing for turning each other on (while being very bitter about it), telling the viewers that they'll be right back... Pearl eventually tells them that they "couldn't turn [her] on with a dozen naked Gerardos and Fabio in tight leather pants. ... Where was I?"
* The entire relationship between Daphne and Niles on ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' seems to be based on this trope. For the first six seasons, Daphne had this effect on Niles. Then, in the seventh season, he got over her - just in time for her to discover his feelings, fall in love with him in return, and suffer through this trope herself.
* Bruno does this to Kerry in an episode of ''Series/EightSimpleRules''. Note that he does try to seduce her, he just doesn't know that it's working.
* An episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' showed Monica making "sex noises" when Phoebe gave her a massage.
* Similarly, an episode of ''Series/ModernFamily'' has Claire making "sex noises" when she gets massages at the mall.
* In the ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' episode "A Little of the Top", Al was accidentally circumcised and had to abstain from sex for a while. Usually, he found the idea of sex with his wife repulsive, but then - probably due to ForbiddenFruit effect - everything she did turned him on.
** Also anytime she actually cleans, he can't help but get horny from the rare sight.
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor definitely has his moments of this in the new series. He's done it to both Martha and Amy- even claiming to the latter he's like a Space Gandalf- but whether its because of repressed feelings or him just being clueless is up for debate. Its probably a mixture of both.
* Very much PlayedForDrama in the ''Series/{{Buffy the Vampire Slayer}}'' episode "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E10Amends Amends]]". [[{{Troll}} The First Evil]] is trying to make Angel feed on Buffy or have sex with her, either of which will turn him evil. Angel encounters Buffy in her bedroom wearing a [[LadyInRed blood-red dress]], her hair [[WarmBloodBagsAreEverywhere pinned up to expose her neck]], and her lower lip trembling from repressed emotion -- he jumps out the window so he won't be tempted to jump on her.

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* The Wrestling/GeorgeSteele-Wrestling/RandySavage feud was sparked and fueled by Steele's interest in Wrestling/MissElizabeth, though, in contrast to the Divas who would follow a decade later, she never ''did'' anything to provoke it. She was [[DistractedByTheSexy just STANDING there]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* During one scene of [[CatGirl Tao]]'s story mode in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift'', Tao goes to retrieve the resident nurse [[MsFanservice Litchi Faye-Ling]] from her clinic. Tao's standard greeting of [[GagBoobs "Boobie Lady"]] is a SkinshipGrope, and she proceeds to feel up the first person she meets- [[LargeHam Bang]] [[HighlyVisibleNinja Shishigami]]. His reaction is, predictably, [[{{Nosebleed}} explosive.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'', it probably wasn't Big Boss' intention to get Ocelot turned on to torture when he pissed his pants and got his eye shot out. Poor Solid Snake had to suffer for that.
** Big Boss at least did mean for Ocelot to handle his gun fighting technique in a more efficient manner, he didn't however intend for Ocelot to enjoy reloading his gun in combat so much.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Rhoda and Catalina [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-11-04 here]] and later [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-11-11 here]]
* ''Webcomic/TheLawOfPurple'': When Green starts crushing on Lynnah...oh, just look [[http://lawofpurple.comicdish.com/?pageID=770 here.]]
* [=DiDi=] of ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' can have a potentially unfortunate effect on every heterosexual male and even vaguely bisexual female within line of sight, just by breathing, as [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/perfect she demonstrates soon after her first appearance.]] Unfortunately, [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/just_wash_yourself_in_swimsuits asking her to restrain the effect does no good,]] as Zii discovers the hard way; [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/we_need_a_doggy she appears to be totally unaware of what she's doing.]]
* ''Webcomic/NamirDeiter'': Issac did this to his own sister, Blue, during his introductory arc. It should be noted that neither she nor the reader knew who he was at the time, and he [[{{Squick}} bolted in horror]] when he realized what happened.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Haley suffered from this trope in the earlier comics with regards to Elan. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0109.html This strip]] is one example.
* ''[[Webcomic/{{Starslip}} Starslip Crisis]]''. Poor Holiday...
* ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}'':
** Once Anne starts exploring Lisa's erotic BDSM writings (Most of which feature her AuthorAvatar), her interactions with her new friend becomes understandably more complex, especially because as a self described hobbyist Lisa is keen to bring up these topics with Anne as much as possible.
** Later averted into ''I DID Mean To Turn You On'' where Lisa starts outright writing erotica for Anne, this gets her in trouble.
