Visual counterpart to InnocentInnuendo. Someone does something that is innocent on the surface, but can have very dirty connotations.

It generally has several common forms:
* A man holding something cylindrical in front of his crotch.
** It can also include pairs of ball-shaped objects.
* A woman holding two spherical objects at chest level.
* [[EroticEating Anyone eating anything with a remotely phallic shape.]]
* [[SomethingElseAlsoRises Something phallic rising up]]

See food examples under EroticEating. If done ''without'' the innuendo, then it's often a case of SceneryCensor.

Once again, FreudWasRight. The source of most supposed (and very few literal) attempts of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

[[folder: Advertising]]

* There was an Alitalia poster on bus stops in New York for a while that showed a closeup of a woman [[EroticEating suggestively eating]] a cannoli

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Art ]]

* The foundation stone of classic ''CommediaDellArte''. Capitano's big sword was always placed suggestively, and Pantalone often caressed his low-hanging moneybags.
* [[http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_229051/Isaac-Cruikshank/The-Master-of-the-Ordnance-exercising-his-Hobby This cartoon]] about UsefulNotes/TheDukeOfWellington's alleged womanising.
* 3D artist Kazushi Kobayashi brings us not simply phallic imagery but [[http://www.geekalerts.com/mecha-robot-models/ a female rider]][[http://www.hobbymedia.it/img/2009/01/dsc_0051-hatsune-miku.jpg to boot.]]

[[folder: Anime And Manga ]]

* ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' is [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/FLCLheartSymbol.jpg full]] of it.
** It's amazing how ''kneading dough'' in a bakery can have such perverse connotations.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has [[ThisIsADrill drills]] ''everywhere''. Some of it is due to the fact that FreudWasRight, but ''some'' of it, notably the HotSpringsEpisode (with Simon running around naked; his crotch obscured only by his drill) ''had'' to have been intentional.
** Through the course of the series Kamina has: a metaphorical 'drill' erection, a laser erection, a Boota erection, a sword erection and whatnot...
** Let's not forget the design of the Dai-Gurren, an [[BaseOnWheels aircraft carrier with legs]] which is basically a huge robot with [[GagPenis a ship that comes out from the junction of its upper and lower body with a curved, bladed bow]].
*** This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the BeachEpisode, when the bow takes damage from a torpedo and the male characters on the bridge [[ShareTheMalePain clutch at themselves in empathetic agony]]. Hilariously, [[CampGay Leeron]] doesn't flinch then, but jumps when something hits the robot from below.
** [[spoiler:Antispiral Nia]]'s black LatexSpaceSuit has red TronLines going about it. The concentric circles on her breasts [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything easily remind you of]] [[NippleAndDimed something]].
* ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' shows a lot of suggestive imagery (train entering a tunnel) while he hear Excel's comments as she is [[BlackComedyRape raped]] by a little girl android.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has a really risque KissOfTheVampire / FuroScene with Evangeline going into [[TheVamp vamp]] territory on Negi. WeaselMascot Chamo happens to be positioned right in front of Negi as this happens, and well...[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v15/c137/8.html just look.]] {{NSFW}}, obviously.
** Chamo's introduction also had a winner [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v03/c018/16.html in the fifth panel of this page.]] It's so blatant that it barely qualifies as innuendo.
** Also [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v03/c025/15.html this]]; with Negi riding his staff with it protruding between his legs. While water drips off of it. He's even holding a naked girl, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar for crying out loud.]]
* In ''Manga/YakitateJapan'', when Spencer cooks bread dough he's wrapped around a bamboo rod, nearly every panel has him holding the rod right in front of him rather suggestively. With dialogue to match.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': The shadow cast by Mao and his chainsaw. Jarring as it is, it makes sense, given Mao's [[{{Yandere}} moti]][[AxeCrazy vation]] and his [[BlessedWithSuck back]][[FreudianExcuse story]].
* Ranka's pair of breast-like tuna buns in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' episode 3.
* In ''The LightNovel/DirtyPair: Dangerous Acquaintences'', Kei and Yuri are on vacation on a non-United Galatica planet. They see an attractive guy and start talking to him:
-->'''Kei:''' Oh look… a train! Gee… I jush love watchin' a train enner a station… don' you? It reminsh me of someth-- ?!
:: But right then, Kei sees that a wanted criminal who she has a grudge against is boarding the train, and runs off in pursuit.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'' has some example. Look at Thugboy and his gun at the cover of #1.
* In a ''ForBetterOrForWorse'' strip set during Michael's early teenage years, his friend Gordon has what he calls "hormone attacks", where anything that could be taken as sexual causes him to pass out. When their gym teacher holds up two basketballs at chest height...
** Another, single-panel gag has the memorable line from his little sister Liz, as they both cloud-gaze, "I see Mickey Mouse['s ears] in the clouds...what do you see?"
* The alien squid in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' (the comic version) vaguely resembles a woman's crotch, legs spread. Because the resemblance is vague and grotesque, the squid is dead, and there are also a lot of dead human bodies lying around, this is also a case of FanDisservice.
** Dan and Laurie fight off a gang of muggers. Their actions afterward are to stand there panting and sweaty, briefly look at each other, and then look away, whereupon one of them lights a cigarette. Sadly less obvious in the movie, thanks to the removal of Laurie's smoking.
** When Dan and Laurie have sex in Archie, the flamethrower goes off at the climax.
* X-Men 15, “Prisoners of the Mysterious Master Mold!”, at those long gone days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The X-Men need to hold on a platform to ram into a building, and Iceman couldn't craft anything better than a surface with a pair of phallic cylinders to hold. See [[http://x-aspirations.com/?p=692 here]]
-->'''Beast:''' This doesn't seem very dignified, but I suppose it's necessary.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film (Live Action) ]]
* ''OfficeSpace'' does this when Lawrence is talking about how he'd do two chicks at the same time: He's sitting down and holding his beer bottle against his crotch.
* The third ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movie had Barbossa banging on a table with a chain shot (two cannonballs connected by the chain) for emphasis. Later he stands up and we have a perfectly framed shot of his legs, with the two cannonballs dangling in between.
-->'''Jack''': Whose boons? Your boons?
** Also, the scene with the telescopes.
* In ''[[AustinPowers Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me]]'', there's a scene where Austin and Felicity are packing and unpacking inside of a tent, but to the horrified soldiers watching outside, it looks a lot different...
** The scene is repeated in Goldmember, where Mini Me first acts as a prehensile wang and then a demonic birth.
* The opening scene of ''[[NineteenFortyOne 1941]]'' where a skinnydipping woman finds herself clutching the upthrusting periscope of a surfacing Japanese submarine (also serves as a hilarious ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' take-off).
* ''RobinHoodMenInTights''. The moonlight serenade scene. Robin's sword.
* The film ''Film/{{Ghost}}'' should've gotten rated R for the wet clay and the potter's wheel.
* In the ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' movie, the Hades poster has a silver hand on his belt. And the hand looks like it's groping his crotch.
* ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' did this with lightsaber stand-ins, as is pictured above.
* ''TheCaineMutiny'' has Captain Queeg's pair of little steel balls he fiddles with when he is nervous or uncomfortable.
* ''Film/{{Transformers}}: Revenge of the Fallen'' gives us Devastator, who sports a pair of wrecking balls between his legs. ''[[FridgeLogic Which none of his components have in vehicle mode.]]''
** This is also lampshaded. [[spoiler: "In position under enemy scrotum!"]]
* In ''{{Airplane}}'', the stewardess must inflate the automatic pilot by blowing into on a tube on his belt buckle... when someone looks at her from behind it looks like fellatio. The effect is only accentuated when Otto (the automatic pilot)'s previously bland and stoic expression changes into a big, wide-eyed grin once she's finished...
* In ''Literature/BridgetJones' Diary'', Bridget's mother gets a job shilling an "As Seen On TV" gizmo at the mall. It automatically shells a hard-boiled egg. Just put in the egg, then work the shaft and out pops an egg! Then [[RuleOfFunny some white liquid]].
* The suntan lotion scene in ''After the Sunset''.
* ''[[Film/StarshipTroopers Starship Troopers 3: Marauder]]'' has this happening to cute [[BridgeBunnies Holly Little]]. Sprawled awkwardly after getting a faceload of alien goo, a suddenly-appearing crack in the earth points directly up her skirt, then a penile-like claw bursts from the ground between her legs, whereupon she and [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Jolene Blalock]] are seized by a gigantic [[VaginaDentata man-eating vagina]] with [[AGodAmI delusions of grandeur]].
* ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' had the Governor trying to put a pen back into its holder. Hedley Lamarr just tells him, "Think of your secretary," and he gets it right into the little... place it's designed to go.
* ''Film/DrStrangelove'', filled as it is with weird sexual innuendo, starts with a scene of two airplanes refueling in midair, but the way it's filmed makes it look like they're having sex. Which was brilliant, because the footage was not shot for the movie: it was StockFootage. All Creator/StanleyKubrick did was play an instrumental version of "Try a Little Tenderness" over it.
** ''Film/TheStarfighters'' also features hot StockFootage of in-flight refueling, which were a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5cEpoHLFOk source of constant merriment]] on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''.
* In ''DownWithLove'', two characters are having a phone conversation at the same time as engaging in various activities. A split screen makes these activities simulate sex. For instance, when the man is on the top of the split screen, he is shown doing push-ups while the woman is on her back on the bottom of the split screen. They even simultaneously have a [[SmokingHotSex "post-coital" cigarette]] at the end of the scene.
* In ''RearWindow'', Jeff is spying on his neighbors with binoculars. Frustrated when he can't see enough, he puts them down, and picks a camera with a telescopic lens. As in. . .''longer''. Classic Hitchcock symbolism. Oddly, despite the fact that voyeurism is generally a sexually deviant activity, this isn't why Jeff is snooping.
* A much darker example in {{Psycho}} during the infamous shower scene. The knife has a distinctly phallic silhouette, the stabbing that represents penetration, the ejaculatory spurts of blood--the whole murder is symbolic of a rape that the severely sexually frustrated and repressed killer cannot otherwise carry out.
* Most likely an accidental version in ''Film/ManOfSteel''; the pods that Zod and his followers are encased in for transport to the Phantom Zone look an awful lot like enlarged dildos when viewed from beneath.
* ''Main/StarWarsDownunder'', an Australian FanFilm spoof. When the Sith Troopers activate their light-boomerangs, they're being held at groin level. The downward curve of the boomerang [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything makes them appear somewhat]]...[[TheLoinsSleepTonight droopy]].
* ''Film/NorthByNorthwest'' has the famous "train going into a tunnel" version. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSAisV76fRM Here!]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Film (Animated) ]]
* Who could forget ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a86QgZVgbyQ this]]'' infamous scene from PinkFloyd's ''The Wall?''
* The film ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' includes a scene where the thief steals some balls, and [[http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/muzition/thiefballs.jpg?t=1254273475 hides them]] in his clothes.
* The ''WallaceAndGromit'' movie has Totty standing behind two chest-height watermelons, just as she says that her suitor has never taken interest in her produce. A similar sight gag happens when one woman holds up two bitten brassicas (a sort of cabbage) which have been "ravaged in the night."
** Not to mention a naked Wallace in a box with the words "May Contain Nuts" on it.
* ''Kronk's New Groove'' features a scene where he and his love interest bake bread, which turns into an extended dance sequence. Which includes a shot of Kronk behind Miss Birdwell and... um... helping her knead bread dough.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Food]]
* The Old Spaghetti Factory serves the [[DoubleEntendre Meat Lover's Treat]]: a plate of spaghetti with Sicilian meatballs and a whole Italian sausage.
* Several French restaurants have independently invented a dessert called ''Rêve de jeune fille'' ("young woman's dream"). It's made up of two spherical scoops of vanilla ice cream with a peeled banana standing right between the two. For additional naughtiness, serve with cream on top of the banana. For additional naughtiness, serve without a spoon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature ]]
* Creator/TerryPratchett does this with ''landscape'' in [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Lords And Ladies]]. At one point, Nanny Ogg and Casanunda have to visit the Long Man, three large burial mounds in the forest. One long with two round ones at one end.
** It also gets one of the heaviest [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] possible.
** A Wizard's staff has a knob on the end.
** In ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', Glenda points out to the wizards that with the placement of two large letter U's on their uniforms, they'll "look like they've got bosoms!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* [[Series/BuffytheVampireSlayer The Whedonverse]] has a lot of these. The stake in Hush, Wesley's arm-blades in Spin The Bottle, and Buffy (hilariously) crushing Warren's *ahem* magic orbs.
** In the episode when Buffy discovers her post-Angel [[ReplacementGoldfish rebound guy]] Riley at the vamphouse, the scene opens with him and a female vampire kneeling before him, shot at an angle (and with sound effects) that makes it unclear just ''what'' she is sucking, but that there is [[EroticEating definitely sucking going on]]. Then the camera pans around to show that it's just blood from his arm.
** Not to mention Buffy's erotic dream in the Season eight comics, where she's in between Angel and Spike and all around them are gushing volcanoes, trains entering tunnels, stakes, flowers.. you name it that panel had it.
* An accidental version occurred in the third season of the UK version of ''Series/TheApprentice'', where one of the contestants had to sell a trampoline on a shopping channel. [[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=eZP3Xcuo16E It might be a bit NSFW.]]
** This made the "''The Apprentice:'' The Worst Decisions Ever" special.
---> '''Simon''': It's not my fault. I'm innocent. Everyone else, out there, are the dirty-minded ones. I can only attest to being an innocent person.
** The design of the building in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xi3d1ix-3I this clip]] also qualifies. Yes, that's the same candidate.
* In one of the episodes of ''Samantha Who'', the title character (who has experienced amnesia) is trying to remember what sex is like and the next scene shows her boyfriend repeatedly putting a pencil into a mechanical sharpener.
* In ''TheStand'', Larry is trying to get some gas and gets Nadine to help put a hose into the floor as they talk about how Joe needed a surrogate father as well as Nadine. They feel very awkward as they realize the symbolism here.
* An episode of ''TwoPintsOfLagerAndAPacketOfCrisps'' featured Jonny polishing a long, thin pepper grinder in a very... suggestive manner, without quite realising he was doing it.
* In ''Series/RobinHood'', Little John totes around a large staff, and in the episode ''Treasure of the Nation'', meets one of the Queen's bodyguards, who has an even ''bigger'' staff, with a large wooden knob at the end of it. Little John spends a good part of the episode eyeing it nervously.
* ''Series/TheBennyHillShow'' has several sketches where Benny is a gardener watering plants with a hose held up at crotch level. It's placed so that you don't see the hose at first, just the water coming out.
* A frequently-run ad for ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' has Dylan Hunt using a force lance, a laser-flashlight that expands into a six-foot staff. He holds it right at crotch level, in profile, and lets it grow. Seriously, I'm amazed it even got on the air in prime time, let alone run all day when kids could see it.
* The {{Media Watchdog}}s descended upon the SuperBowl [=XLI=] halftime show, when {{Prince}} played his guitar (shaped to look like his symbol) behind a drape in silhouette, making it look as if the neck is...well...and oh, yeah, a piece of the body stuck out below the neck to look like...oh my.
** It's ''Prince''. The man could do his taxes with an abbacus and make it look sexual.
* In ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'', Gene and Sam are visiting a comatose girl in the hospital when they start a fight. They whale on each other for a bit, and then the camera cuts to them sprawled on the floor at the end of the bed, slightly the worse for wear, breathing heavily, and with Gene smoking a cigarette as they have a heart-to-heart conversation.
* In ''Series/{{Glee}}'', when Emma is singing about how she could have "done a thousand things I've never done before", there's a close-up of a pearl necklace. For those who don't know, it's a slang for when a man ejaculates semen around the other's neck.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music Videos ]]
* The music video for {{Devo}}'s "That's Good" has a bluescreen background that, on occasion, shows a french fry going into the hole in a donut, followed a naked woman from the shoulders up writhing in ecstasy. It's...fairly unsubtle. (Then the fries start breaking as they go in, and the woman begins looking downwards with a sigh of frustration...) MTV refused to air the video before either the french fry or the donut was removed.
* QueensOfTheStoneAge's "Go with the Flow" video has lots of VisualInnuendo tucked behind the more overt examples.
* The animated Music Video for {{Tobuscus}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN7dYDYfvVg I CAN SWING MY SWORD!]] at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN7dYDYfvVg#t=0m33s timestamp 0:33]]. Doesn't help that his eyes are bugging out either.

[[folder: Pornography ]]
* Softcore pornography will often feature a woman with a string of pearls around her neck, or entertaining a cat, or...
[[/folder]]



[[folder: Webcomics ]]
* ''ExterminatusNow'' has one strip early on where a beam sword (think lightsaber) is held in front of one guy's crotch and activated, as two demons shapeshifted into scantily clad women make out in front of him.
* ''{{Homestuck}}'': When [[spoiler:Jake kisses Dirk's head]], there is [[SomethingElseAlsoRises a volcano erupting rather dramatically in the background]]. In contrast, [[spoiler:Rose and Kanaya]] share their first on-screen kiss while standing in a long, dark tunnel. ''Yeah.''
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original ]]
* Superdickery.com has an entire gallery of such things, starting [[http://superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=32&Itemid=50 here]].
* In Chapter 10, Act 2 of the web animation series ''BrokenSaints'', when [[SexySecretary Sandra]] talks about wanting to do field work at a naval base with hunky sailors, a little animation features her moving her pencil to and from her lips. It's not much, but its been confirmed by WordOfGod to be intentional.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' ''StarWars'' parody, [[{{Shotacon}} Herbert's]] lightsaber is limp until he spots Chris.
* In the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short "Russian Rhapsody" when the gremlins make their entrance a fat one stands near the edge of the plane engine and another gremlin's very long nose pokes out from between his legs.
* In an episode of the Simpsons set in Washington D.C., they visit the Washington Monument. Marge giggles and whispers something in Homer's ear.
-->Homer: "Oh, Marge, grow up!"
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' had a rather [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar infamous]] scene that implied Sokka and Suki were meeting up for a romantic night in his tent, and the next morning Sokka is seen wearing a flower necklace. In other words, Sokka got lei'd and Suki got deflowered.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' - in one [[{{Precursors}} Dwemer]] ruin, under a bed there is a LostTechnology tube, some oil, and a few piles of ash...
** To clarify, the ash piles are [[spoiler:the Dwemer themselves. They all died rather...suddenly.]]
** Skyrim adds Haelga to this list of... *ahem* yeah. In her bedroom, there are manacles above the bed, stamina potions in the shelves, leather strips on a table, a copy of the Rated X play script for "The Lusty Argonian Maiden" on a nearby nightstand... Bethesda one-upped themselves this time.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'', Gillian sees an underage girl in his apartment, using his shower. She freaks out and sprays him with her showerhead. He spends the next scene looking damp, flushed and shocked with fluid dripping down his face.
* In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', the main character Travis recharges his Beam Katana by shaking it. But, the behind the back camera makes it look suspiciously like [[ADateWithRosiePalms something else...]]
* The ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' games... for example, practically any bowling-alley you can find, will have a sign prominently featuring two bowling-balls and a pin.
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'': Vamp licking Raiden's white blood off of his crotch knife.
