->''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Oh... My... GOD!]] Commander Kokonoe,'' [[HumongousMecha that]] ''is soooo awesome! No, seriously... I'm feeling a tingly sensation in my naughty bits...''
-->-- '''[[MsFanservice Makoto]]''', ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlue BlazBlue: Continuum Shift]]''

For some reason, geeks like to make jokes that geeks actually have sexual arousal about their geek interests. Not sex or {{fetish}}es, this is about the latest technology or something like that. Basically, it's the geek factor that is turning them on. If the thought of Franchise/WonderWoman fighting [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Storm]] turns someone on because it would be an awesome comic, and ''not'' because [[GirlOnGirlIsHot it's two hot chicks fighting]], you have this trope.

Just one of the many ways TVTropesWillRuinYourLife. Also, some of the examples would be NotSafeForWork.

This also doesn't count if [[RagingStiffie a guy just has raging hormones and gets erections at anything]], nor does it count if it's merely {{Squee}} or SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced. There ''has'' to be implications of sexual arousal.

This can happen even when NerdsAreVirgins.

Compare with GeekyTurnOn, {{Squee}}, WhyDontYouMarryIt, AwesomenessIsVolatile.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Yellow Overdrive Power Ranger]] Ronny seemed to get quite hot and bothered when she saw the zords her team were going to be driving. The fans, of course, latched on to her "zordgasm", and soon put her in a CargoShip (with drills, after she had a similar reaction to the Drill Blaster in a later episode).
* StephenFry has a nerdgasm in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ovD21KbSDM#t=9m50s this video]] after spotting a Tesla Roadster in traffic and hearing how big of a touchscreen the new Model S will have in the dash. During his second appearance in the "Star In A Reasonably-Priced Car" segment on ''TopGear'', he got more than a little excited while driving his fast lap and Jeremy asked him if he'd [[UnusualEuphemism had a crisis]].
** On Stephen's quiz program {{QI}} this is a RunningGag. Following a particularly impressive display of obscure knowledge, someone will suggest that they, Stephen, or another guest (often Phill Jupitus) are now aroused.
* Parodied on an episode of ''SaturdayNightLive'' with a fake commercial for a sex chat line featuring women dressed as different geek icons (including [[Franchise/StarWars Princess Leia]], [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Uhura]], and [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Galadriel]]) who speak only in references to their respective works.
* On an episode of HGTV's ''Room Crashers'', the host gave a cluttered couple a really cool shelving unit where, upon a button press, their flat-screen TV rose from its hidden compartment. The homeowner squealed "It's so ''nerdy''! I love it!"
* Adam Savage of ''Series/MythBusters'' plays it straight and references it by name in one ''Franchise/IndianaJones''-themed myth when he dresses up as Indy.
* In ''TheBigBangTheory'', Amy tries to induce this in Sheldon so that the good feelings are associated with her. [[HilarityEnsues It]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny works.]]
* Creator/StephenColbert had a four-day Nerdgasm in December 2012 in the form of "Hobbit Week" on ''Series/TheColbertReport'', celebrating the release of ''[[Film/TheHobbit The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey]]'', in which he interviewed Creator/IanMcKellen, Creator/MartinFreeman, Creator/AndySerkis, and Creator/PeterJackson--in which he seemed genuinely excited to talk--and decked out the whole set in Tolkien paraphernalia. There was probably [[ProductPlacement some kind of deal involved]], but no doubt [[OneOfUs Colbert]] (described by Jackson as "the biggest Tolkien geek I have ever met") would have done it regardless.
* [[Series/ThirtyRock Liz Lemon]] finally gets her sex life on track after a rather... [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything interesting]] scene where she discovers she has a huge scheduling fetish. Then she goes to get some office supplies with Criss...

[[folder: Newspaper Comics ]]

* A PG version of this trope occurs in ''FoxTrot'' with Jason ogling a computer ad in a magazine the way an older boy would ogle a magazine centerfold. Peter's done the same thing with a guitar magazine.
** Jason and Marcus have both ogled a National Geographic with no-holds barred, fully detailed diagrams of [[spoiler:the Apollo 11 lunar lander.]]

* Naked Snake/Big Boss from ''MetalGearSolid3'' had one when EVA gives him the .45. [[NotDistractedByTheSexy He's got a woman with her boobs out in front of him, but he's staring at that gun]] and gushing over it like he might just try and have sex with it!
* [[http://forums.bungie.org/halo/archive.pl?read=17194 From the forums of]] ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'':

* [[http://www.destructoid.com/e3-09-beloved-golden-sun-series-makes-its-way-to-the-ds-134538.phtml This writer]] for ''Destructoid'' admits getting a stiffie when ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' had the third game announced.
* From {{Moviebob}}:
-->"A few months back, Capcom gave old-school gamers like myself the world over a Sizemorean-level affliction of acute priapism, by announcing it was revisiting the world of ''VideoGame/BionicCommando''..."
** Followed immediately by disappointment at the RealIsBrown take and later by the poor control layout.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'', ComedicSociopath Mao has a tendency to do this whenever he witnesses something particularly [[ForTheEvulz evil]]. His reaction is complete with labored breathing and drooling. (It's probably worth mentioning that Mao embodies [[ThisLoserIsYou a number of stereotypes of RPG gamers]].)
* [[MsFanservice Makoto]] [[PluckyGirl Nanaya]] of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' literally does this in Tager's ''Continuum Shift'' joke ending, when Tager transforms into a giant gold-plated HumongousMecha in order to fight a giant robot version of resident CatGirl Taokaka. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Don't]] [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs ask]].
