->''"What a little thing\\
like a wedding ring can do!\\
It allows a thrill\\
when we start to bill and coo\\
I can squeeze you here\\
I can squeeze you there\\
And I'm never told to handle with care\\
I don't have to stop when I kiss your hand\\
It's lawful!\\
Oh, it's grand!"''
-->-- Song from ''Film/OneHourWithYou'' (lyrics by Leo Robin)

AliceAndBob have [[LetsWaitAwhile decided to put off]] TheirFirstTime (which isn't necessarily ''the'' first time for either of them) until they get married. Maybe they believe in waiting until marriage. Maybe it's because they think it'll make their wedding night "extra special." Either way, they wait.

But once the vows are exchanged, the gloves (and clothes) are off and they proceed to make up for lost time. They spend days in the bedroom (and often [[MakingLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces other places]]) and are frequently shown sneaking off for a quickie. Often lampshaded by other characters.

Often prone to [[RightThroughTheWall waking up the neighbors]] with their bedroom business, making for [[HilarityEnsues much hilarity]].

Usually used as a short-term RunningGag.

* In ''Manga/{{Sachiare}}'', 18-year-old Tomoharu is newly married to ''25-year-old'' Sachiko (although she's so small and cute you can't tell from looking.) Although there's nothing explicit shown, they do get playful with each other, and blushingly reference what's happening when the lights go out.
* While it's not mentioned whether Kaoru and Hajime sex before their wedding in ''Manga/ICantUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'', they get it on with quite a few times afterwards[[spoiler:, which results in Kaoru getting pregnant]].
* ''Manga/FutariEcchi'' features the Kubotas, a young couple recently moving in the building where Makoto and Yura are living. They're really insatiable, barely able to spend time away from each other, once starting to get it on [[ElevatorGoingDown right in the elevator]] -- with their neighbor Makoto riding with them, to his acute embarrassment!

* Discussed and averted in a Creator/BenElton routine about wedding receptions. Elton's point is that the tradition no-one can leave before the happy couple made sense in the days when this trope could be assumed to be in effect; of course they'd be the first ones to leave. Nowadays, receptions last forever, because the bride would much rather be at the centre of a big party than on the honeymoon. "They probably ''stopped'' sleeping together months ago!"

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* A storyline in the DC ''Franchise/StarTrek'' comics starts with the wedding of two of the crew, who promptly head back to their cabin. Immediately afterward, a telepathic crewmember falls ill and fills the ''Enterprise'' with his hallucinations, subjecting everyone on board to a trip through [[Literature/TheDivineComedy Dante's Inferno]]...except for the newlyweds. They were too wrapped up in what they were doing to notice.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': [[{{Polyamory}} Germany, Italy, and Japan]] actually didn't do it until they got married after months of dating. Let's just say the [[ThePeepingTom Bad Touch Trio]] [[UnusualEuphemism announced the end of the waiting period]] while [[BlatantLies performing surveillance on the honeymoon ship]].
-->"The Axis Virgin Trio is no more!"
* The "bonus feature" scenes for the ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'' finale, the very much M-rated version of the Holmeses' honeymoon. There's a bit of desperation to it, though, as [[LongDistanceRelationship Beth has to return to her own time]], they have only one weekend, and they can't know for sure that they'll ever see each other again.
* Very nearly ALL Film/KickAss fanfiction that has Dave and Mindy get together portrays them like this.
* Luffy and Nami are this in ''Strawhat Theater 2: Our Mrs Monkey'', much to the annoyance of the rest of the crew (except Robin).

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* There's a couple in ''Film/NationalLampoonsEuropeanVacation'' that keeps showing up. The two are newlyweds and are seen engaged in heavy petting during every appearance.
* UpToEleven in the Gary Shandling vehicle ''What Planet Are You From?''
* ''Film/DancesWithWolves'' has this with the titular character and his wife. To the point that the other members of the tribe call him "the busy bee".
* The newlywed couple in ''Film/RearWindow'' doesn't leave their apartment for days.
* A religious couple in ''Film/ForgettingSarahMarshall'' are DRIPPING with this trope. Well, the wife is raring to go but the husband is uncomfortable since he doesn't know what to do. After a lesson with Aldous, though, the new couple definitely fulfill this trope.
* ''Film/GuestHouseParadiso'' features a couple of hotel guests who aren't seen for days after they check in. When they eventually come downstairs for a meal and the hotel manager works out who they are and asks them what they've been doing all this time, they just look at each other and smile sheepishly, "We're newlyweds".
* Employed in the film version of ''Theatre/BarefootInThePark'' with the couple not leaving the honeymoon suite for six days as the newspapers pile up around the door.
* "If they don't stop they're going to kill each other." Said in ''The Four Seasons'' where the antics of a man and his hot young wife are [[RightThroughTheWall heard for hours through the thin walls of the sailboat he and his friends are staying on]].
* ''Film/FourWeddingsAndAFuneral'': Bernard and Lydia can't get enough of one another from the moment they get romantically involved, and become particularly enthusiastic once they've exchanged vows. Bernard confesses that married life is leaving him "exhausted, actually".
* Played for tragedy in ''Film/{{Munich}}'' when the Israeli hit team is sent to kill a target in a hotel; one of them inadvertently gets into a conversation with the mark who jokes about the insatiable newlyweds in the next room over who never go out because they're always having sex. The newlyweds are therefore nearby when the bomb goes off; due to an error the charge is too powerful and ends up killing the husband and blinding the wife.
* In one of the Film/CarryOn movies, a young married couple in a hotel insist on making out despite all the chaos that's constantly happening around them.

* Three couples (the first couple was retired, the second couple was middle-aged and the final couple was newlywed) went in to see the minister to see how to become members of his church. The minister said that they would have to go without sex for two weeks and then come back and tell him how it went. Two weeks went by, and the couples returned to the minister. The retired couple said it was no problem at all. The middle-aged couple said it was tough for the first week, but after that, it was no problem. The newlyweds said it was fine until she dropped the can of paint. "Can of PAINT?" exclaimed the minister. "Yeah," said the newlywed man. "She dropped the can and when she bent over to pick it up I had to have her right there and then. Lust took over." The minister just shook his head and said "Well I'm sorry, but after hearing that I'm afraid I can't allow you into the church." "That's okay," said the man. "[[spoiler:We're not allowed back in Home Depot either.]]"
* [[PlayedForLaughs Comically]] [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]: A newlywed couple has sex all night. At dawn, the exhausted groom, finally catching her asleep, goes to the bathroom and doesn't come back for a long time. The bride finds him there, talking to his penis: "Oh come on, don't be afraid, show up already, she's sleeping."

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', this is justified, as sex before marriage is frowned upon. When Jerin's sisters get married, they tell their parents in law that their husband looks so well because he's getting to much "exercise", "riding" ... while one of the wives has her hands all over his body. He's a very happy young man, and presumably not only because he's fond of horses.
* ''[[{{Literature/Twilight}} Breaking Dawn]]'' by Stephanie Meyer. Edward and Bella are like this after she turns into a vampire. Emmett and Rosalie also mention that they "broke a few houses" and that it "took them a decade" to stop.
* In ''Literature/ThingsFallApart,'' when a guy's late for a morning activity somebody jokes that you can never trust timeliness from someone who recently took a new wife.
* The most obvious point of [[Literature/TheBible "The Song of Solomon"]].
* [[Literature/TalesOfKolmar Lanen and Varien]] start before they're married, but there was a long period of letting him [[HumanityEnsues adjust to being human]] before they started, and it's after their wedding that they hit their highest... rate.
* Justified in ''The Bronze Horseman'' by Paullina Simons because the protagonists are living in the 1940's Soviet Union -- thanks to a permanent housing shortage and the lack of privacy in a police state, they've nowhere to resolve their UnresolvedSexualTension until they get married (after finding a nicely isolated shack out in the woods). Also the husband has to go back to the front line after his leave is up, so PreClimaxClimax is also involved.
* ''[[Literature/DragonridersOfPern Masterharper of Pern]]'': Robinton (then a newly-minted master harper) and his new bride, Kasia. When Robinton would seem to sleepwalk through his daily harper duties, his fellow harpers would simply let it go with a wink and a nod.
* In ''Film/TheGodfather'' novel, Michael and his wife Appollonia's lovemaking is so intense that not only do they have sex every night, it's often not until dawn the next morning that they finally stop from exhaustion.
* In ''Literature/WeCantRewind'', the experienced widower Don and the (formerly) single mother Denise get really, ''really'' busy with each other on their wedding night and during their honeymoon. Though they start slowing down later, [[spoiler: they don't even let an awfully inconvenient (and irreversible) FreakyFridayFlip with their children get in their way for very long, as Denise demands "satisfaction" and Don ultimately decides to keep the peace by giving her what she wants]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
%%* Thelma and Keith from ''Series/GoodTimes''
* The pilot episode of ''Series/TheLoveBoat'' had this; all you saw of them was an occasional arm to get the room service. They had 4 or 5 "Do Not Disturb" signs on their door. Their only reason for existence, plot-wise, was that someone's luggage had been placed in their room.
* Subverted on ''Series/SexAndTheCity''. Charlotte doesn't want to have sex with Trey before they're married so it will be more romantic, but she finds out that [[TheLoinsSleepTonight he can't get it up]] and they don't have sex once on their honeymoon.
** Played with in a later episode where Miranda has her honeymoon with Steve. Out in a remote cabin, the tightly wound Miranda isn't enjoying the fact that "Everything here is screaming 'You should be having sex right now!'". It's only when Steve announces that the honeymoon is over, Miranda finds the pressure lifted and wants to make love again.
* In the series ''Series/{{Wings}}'', [[OfficialCouple Joe and Helen]] had been off-and-on for a while. After finally tying the knot they spend all waking moments of their Honeymoon in their hotel room.
** It was most obvious when Joe was flat out turned on at seeing Helen in scuba gear and they made out.
** Subverted in TheTag of their wedding episode. She actually calls him insatiable when he wakes her up in their honeymoon bed, but what he wants is another slice of the Big Sandwich served at their reception.
* ''Series/TheFastShow'' included as characters a constantly nude and shagging newlywed couple, called The Newlyweds.
** To elaborate: in one sketch they are at it in bed ''while removals men are carrying the bed up the garden path to their new home''. They barely pause to say 'Hi' to their new neighbour.
* [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Hinted at]] with Amy and Rory in ''Series/DoctorWho'', who have had several successive honeymoons.
* In the episode of ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' where Shawn turns Feeny's house into a bed and breakfast, one of the guest couples is a pair of honeymooners. They spend all their time in the bedroom and are never seen until the stinger, when Feeny has to evict them himself. [[spoiler:To his surprise, [[DecemberDecemberRomance they're a very elderly couple]], giving him hope that there may still be time for romance in his life after all]].
** Cory and Topanga themselves have shades of this, especially since they waited so long.
* On ''Series/That70sShow,'' Kitty mentions that she and Red waited until after they were married to have sex. And she means ''right'' after they were married--they apparently did it in a broom closet between the ceremony and the reception.
* The Bundy's neighbors in ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' start out this way, with a RunningGag that Al hates their visits because it makes his wife amorous.
* Inverted in ''Series/DadsArmy'' when Mainwaring explains why he learned to play the bagpipes:
--> I spent my honeymoon in a remote village in Scotland called [=InverGeechie=]. It was a wild and lonely place. The nights were long ..... and there was [[SexlessMarriage nothing else to do]].
* ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'': Horace and Myra, once they get over their anxiety--he's a virgin, she's a former prostitute who's "never done it with somebody I love". And the titular character and Sully as well, pleasantly surprising her, as she clearly didn't expect to enjoy her "wifely duty" so much (unsurprisingly, given the standards of the show's time frame).
* Series/GameOfThrones has Margaery and [[spoiler:Tommen]]. Margaery brags to her ladies-in-waiting that they went four times in one night and he outright says he wants to do nothing but have sex all day, every day.

* Say what people will about the Puritans in New England, they were no prudes: one of them even composed (and performed) a love song for his wedding day in which he sang oh-so-subtly about how desperately he wished the wedding were ''over'' already so [[IntercourseWithYou he could "come in" to his bride]].

* In ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'', Thomas and Martha Jefferson are implied to be this (although they had married four years earlier, in 1772) and certainly behave the part. Tom is so distracted by their separation that he has complete WritersBlock on the Declaration of Independence--it's only after Adams asks her to visit him that he's able to produce a workable draft.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Nick and Ki from ''Webcomic/GeneralProtectionFault''. Nick thought they should wait for marriage because he's an old-fashioned romantic. Ki thought this was the sweetest thing ever, so went along. Once they got married, they made up for lost time.
* Tipper and Charles from ''Webcomic/NamirDeiter''. They went from "[[LetsWaitAWhile Waiting until they're married]] because of (an implied) fear of physical intimacy" to "Sneaking off for a quickie at every opportunity" in the space of their wedding night.
* ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' [[PlayedForLaughs plays this for laughs]] in one strip: a man and woman are in bed, and the man comments that while this honeymoon has been great so far, tonight he'd like to try something different. She agrees, sounding a bit nervous--and he promptly goes to sleep.
