[[caption-width-right:246:...or don't look. It's more polite, and keeps things SFW.]]

A wacky romp, usually full of {{fanservice}}, blunt innuendos, and [[ASimplePlan simple plans]] all to one purpose -- to get laid! Expect tons of GagBoobs, humorous dating or hook up scenarios, and maybe a large dollop of AManIsNotAVirgin, or SexAsRiteOfPassage if he still is. These can be explicit or non-explicit. The hijinks don't have to end after our hero or heroine gets laid.

Note that the proportion of sexual material can vary; jokes on other subjects are certainly permitted. A comedy series can have episodes of sex comedy while completely avoiding the subject at other times. Many of the examples below actually feature variants of the trope, or {{deconstruct|edTrope}} it in some way. Conversely, when PornWithPlot tries to be funny, the result is obviously some kind of sex comedy, if not usually a very good one.

Many long-running sitcoms (outside of children's television) will have an episode of sex comedy sooner or later, sometimes featuring an attractive visiting character or guest star who catches the attention of one or more of the primary cast.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime ]]

* ''Manga/AILoveYou'' starts off with the UnluckyEverydude getting a MagicalGirlfriend due to [[LightningCanDoAnything a lightning strike hitting his computer, causing her to materlize into the real world]], with some fanservicey moments here and there. Then around the time Number 20 and 40 appear, there are ''much'' more fanservicey moments, Hitoshi is made out to be a huge pervert who only wants to get some nice action (whether it be from his computer program girlfriend or... actual {{Ecchi}} videogames) and there's more jokes that go pretty far for an overall comedy series with [[TearJerker tearjerky]] moments, including things like Hitoshi arousing Number 30 enough and [[ItMakesSenseInContext pinching her nipple]].
* ''Manga/SeitokaiYakuindomo'' is about 30% school SliceOfLife jokes, 10% height jokes, and 60% sex comedy. Though here, the protagonist (and only male) is the StraightMan -- it's the surrounding girls who provide all of the lust and sex jokes. Surprisingly, it's not actually {{Ecchi}}, and the fanservice is pretty limited.

[[folder: Comics and Manga ]]

* Creator/RobertCrumb's comic strips surely are full of this.
* Milo Manara's work is, too.
* ''Manga/HappyMania'': A young woman sleeps her way into true love, with many semen jokes along the way.
* ''ComicBook/RedEars'': This enormously succesful Belgian comic book is nothing more than an erotic gag comic strip series.
* ''Comicbook/SexCriminals'' is a series about two people who can [[TimeStandsStill freeze time when they have orgasms]]. They use this ability to rob banks so that they can use the money to save a library.
* Much of the work of Icelandic artist Kjartan Arnorsson is a comedic core wrapped in a thick layer of pornographic shenanigans, where the context may be sexual but the execution is often presented as silly, almost cartoonish antics.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* ''Film/AmericanPie'' is fairly definitive of the genre.
* ''Flowers and Bees'': a pathetic young man attempts to sleep with a motley crew of women.
* ''Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask'' and ''A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy'' by Creator/WoodyAllen.
* A lot of Creator/MelBrooks' films fall in this category, despite sex not being the central theme; they tend to have a lot of sexual innuendo in their jokes.
* ''Porky's'' is another noted example.
* ''Film/TheFortyYearOldVirgin'': The clue is in the title.
* ''Another Gay Movie'' and its sequel ''Another Gay Sequel: Gay's Gone Wild'', unsurprisingly.
* The first ''PinkPanther'' movie has a fair number of sexual jokes, even though [[spoiler:no one really gets any]].
* ''Film/TheSweetestThing'': It's like a chick flick was directed by the guys who direct RobSchneider's films.
* ''FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh'': '80s teen sex comedy.
* ''Film/LoveAndOtherDrugs'': A higher drama quotient, but still in the category.
* ''Film/PrettyCool'', and its sequel, ''Film/PrettyCoolToo''.
* ''Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Fantasy'': A sex comedy musical with [[PornWithPlot actual sex scenes]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live-Action Television ]]

* ''Series/{{Brass}}'': Most of the lead characters are highly lecherous, leading to a lot of sexual plots and sub-plots.
* ''Series/DreamOn'' is very much sex comedy, albeit with a gimmick.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Theatre ]]

* The Ancient Greek play ''Theatre/{{Lysistrata}}'' demonstrates that the sex comedy is OlderThanFeudalism.
* In the 19th century, Georges Feydeau not only popularised {{farce}} in the modern form, but was quite risqué about it by the standards of the time; many of his stories have elements of sex comedy, and the combination has remained popular in theatrical farce to the present.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry'' is an AdventureGame by genre, but by content, it's a SexComedy with logic puzzles.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* Among (non-porn) webcomics, ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' is perhaps the purest example, alhough it's ''relatively'' subtle and even deconstructive about it -- some of the time, anyway. Of its two {{spinoff}}s, ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' is more or less as much of a sex comedy but dials back on the explicitness and adds a little more SoapOpera, while ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'' is less about sex and substantially less explicit (despite the odd ShowerScene and a fair bit of nudity with careful use of the SceneryCensor), but still approaches the trope at times.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* The infamous 1929 cartoon ''Everready Harton In Buried Treasure'' is a sex comedy.
* Creator/RalphBakshi 's ''Film/FritzTheCat'' also falls in this category.
* ''Tarzoon The Shame Of The Jungle'' puts sex into blunt parody.
