An Accidental Pornomancer is a character who seems unable to avoid sex, particularly in situations where most sane people would find it [[HeadTiltinglyKinky awkward]], [[QuestionableConsent non-consensual]], {{squick}}ish, [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny immoral]], or [[CoitusEnsues impractical]].

This trope is usually what you get if you want the benefits of the NiceGuy with none of the implications of the {{Slut|Shaming}} or ThePornomancer. Sex is something that just happens to the Accidental Pornomancer, even if they're apathetic or don't want it, and their own desires are completely inconsequential. Moral repercussions are either [[MoralDissonance glossed over]], or [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing made to seem wrong, but still awesome]]. The Accidental Pornomancer is thus free from any responsibility, consequences, guilt or fault for what happened, [[ButIWouldReallyEnjoyIt even if they enjoy it]].

In theory, it's the perfect [[{{Escapism}} escapist fantasy]]: the hero isn't "perverted" because this sexual encounter isn't something they, or "normal" people, would want. They aren't womanizing or slutting, because [[QuestionableConsent they couldn't say no]], or the sex was really weird. Thus, there's plenty of PowerFantasy, but your hero can still be an AudienceSurrogate. Further, this trope usually (but not always) averts IdealizedSex; when the sex is really awkward or weird, you can still have them feel insecure, and thus seem innocent.

[[AManIsAlwaysEager Because of gender stereotypes]], the Accidental Pornomancer is either AlwaysMale or [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale the sexual aggressors]] are AlwaysFemale. If you swap genders, the same situation invites UnfortunateImplications and {{Double Standard}}s, ''perhaps'' [[BastardBoyfriend unless the story]] [[RomanceNovel was intended for women]], but [[FlameBait good luck with that.]] While the guy will be admired or seen as "lucky", the rare [[DistaffCounterpart female version]] of this trope is usually an [[MadonnaWhoreComplex innocent being victimized]] or a [[ReallyGetsAround ditzy, "easy" Slut]].

Also, while the setup for this trope is the same as an UnwantedHarem, where it differs is that in the {{Harem Genre}}, the hero is usually chaste until the end. This hero sees action at some point during the story, and usually [[InstantSeduction doesn't have to put in any work]].

As such, this trope is prevalent in a lot of UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}}, {{Hentai}}, {{Ecchi}}, and [[HGame H-Games]].

For more information on the subject, check out the [[Analysis/AccidentalPornomancer Analysis page]].

Subtrope to ChickMagnet (and in some cases, CluelessChickMagnet specifically) and ReallyGetsAround. Sometimes overlaps with sister trope, SoBeautifulItsACurse. In-universe, this is often confused for PlayingHardToGet, but the difference is that the Accidental Pornomancer actually ''doesn't'' seek any attention.

Contrast {{Celibate|Hero}}/ChasteHero, which this subverts.




* A recurring trope in advertising. Some unremarkable (perhaps even otherwise unattractive) Joe tries out the product being promoted, and the next thing he knows, he can't beat the women off with a stick.
** The '60s/'70s commercials for Hai Karate aftershave spring to mind.
** This was also used humorously in a Sir Walter Raliegh pipe tobacco commercial of the same era. When the hero switched to that tobacco, he proclaimed "The chicks are back; ... the chicks are BACK!" When the camera pulled back, he was being followed by a cheeping herd of fluffy yellow baby chicks.
** Subverted in a late 2012 "3 Musketeers" commercial. He's slightly offended at their come-ons, but it turns out they're only after his candy bar.
** Lynx/Axe antiperspirant shower gel ads are made of this. In one a girl borrows her boyfriend's gel and, after a day of [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer attracting women]], she returns home to [[FridgeLogic demand an explanation]]. Another Lynx add has a man being [[ElevatorGoingDown molested in the elevator]] by a beautiful woman after using Lynx. And then, the next person to step into the elevator is a [[LeatherMan gay biker]]....
* One briefly infamous Superbowl ad had a {{Gonk}}ish woman (she has an overbite and a BigOlUnibrow) followed by attractive men in typical Axe fashion. In the end, it turns out she rubs a ''cashew'' behind her ears as perfume. There was much debate as to whether this was insulting to women, men, cashews, or just funny.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The main character of ''Love Rush'', Hakuba Reiji has what is called "The Ubermale Gene", a rare condition that causes practically all girls to view him as a world-class hunk. This leads to him being chased by hordes of lovestruck girls, and judging from a flashback, it's been happening since he was in elementary school. And then [[CuteMonsterGirl Cute Monster Girls]] start crawling out of the woodwork...
* ''Anime/AkiSora''. '''Full stop.''' Sora is extremely shy, effeminate, delicate, and [[SociallyAwkwardHero socially awkward]]. And yet, he gets to have sex with some gorgeous woman almost every issue. Granted, he ''does'' have one regular lover, but every other woman he's with either rapes him, tricks him into sex, coerces him, or motivates him into pity sex.
* Deconstructed in ''Manga/OkaneGaNai''. Ayase is SoBeautifulItsACurse, which leads to him becoming a SexSlave. He struggles with his feelings about it throughout the series.
* Itou Makoto of ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays''. He suddenly gets the attention of all the female main characters, and while he does ''want'' the attention and gives in, he never really does anything to actually ''get'' their attention. [[spoiler:Eventually deconstructed and subverted when his refusal to support Sekai's supposed pregnancy ends in the girls rejecting him just as easily and ultimately his death. But reconstructed in many of the endings, in which ignoring some {{Love Interest}}s entirely will end in bloodshed, thus forcing the player to play along to a fashion.]]
* ''Manga/CryingFreeman'': Discussed as the reason why no woman will ever be able to kill Yoh: he's just such a perfect man, they cannot bring themselves to get rid of such beauty. The alternative? [[SexFaceTurn Sex]].
* In ''Yurika's Campus Life'', the title character starts out like this, somehow bedding [[YuriGenre every woman she meets]] accidentally. Due to her rather tight economical situation, she quickly takes hold of her potential and starts seducing the women in her campus into giving her food and a place to stay, effectively crossing over into [[ThePornomancer regular pornomancy]].
* In the hentai ''Mankitsu Happening'', the main character Keiichi Oyamada has this due to [[AccidentalPervert having a disease that gets him into sexual situations]]. However, it's a case of BlessedWithSuck because he is unable to hold down a steady job because of the titular "happenings".

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'': Dick Grayson, DependingOnTheWriter. Sometimes, Dick Grayson is shown to be a smooth ChivalrousPervert who knows full well what he's doing. Other times, [[MeaningfulName Dick]] just has a hard time saying no and keeping it in his pants. You could also make the argument that in the latter times, he's ObfuscatingStupidity. But, in any case, he's ''damn good at it''.
** Case in point, during a particular story arc, Dick was [[VillainessesWantHeroes lusted after]] by the {{Anti Hero}}ine (or, perhaps more accurately, flat out villainess) The Tarantula. During a particularly ''bad'' case of HeroicBSOD, Tarantula strips a traumatized and lost Grayson and immediately has sex with him, despite the fact that he's protesting the whole time. Not only is this glossed over in the story for quite some time, even the writer herself claimed that this was [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization just "nonconsensual" sex]] and that he wasn't exactly raped.
** Lampshaded in an issue of his comic by [[Comicbook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]] after Dick complains about his love life. Tim is quick to point out that, through his career, Dick has slept with gems such an alien princess, a goddess, a demon, and a mafia princess--not to mention [[TheBeautifulElite the various types one would find in the superhero community]]. And keep in mind, this was ''before'' the HotLibrarian, the aforementioned {{Anti Hero}}ine, the supermodel, or the circus girl.
** Tim himself has become this trope. He had a number of close calls over the years (for example, nearly having his bones jumped after Comicbook/RasAlGhul's sister Nyssa took him captive), but people were always came to his rescue just before. In the Comicbook/New52 version of ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' however, the demon Trigon [[DemonicPossession takes control of Tim]] and uses the opportunity to seduce both Comicbook/WonderGirl and Solstice into sex. All three parties are shocked when this is discovered, but [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization all agreed that they enjoyed it]]. Tim is also perplexed when it's stated that [[MoreThanMindControl he wasn't exactly]] FightingFromTheInside and was a participant. He and Wonder Girl later begin a relationship proper due to lingering passions from the night they shared together.
* ComicBook/IncredibleHulk. Ho-LEE crap. The Hulk [[{{Catchphrase}} "just wants to be left alone"]], but to date, the guy has had three wives, three offspring, several casual flings (including being ''raped'' by an [[EldritchAbomination Extradimensional Queen]]/EldritchAbomination ''on two separate occasions''), and many more women who [[AllAmazonsWantHercules value him]] [[StalkerWithATestTube for his strength]].
* The ''ComicBook/XMen'' character Longshot is all about this, thanks to his bizarre mix of naivete and willingness to try anything twice. Everyone from Rogue to Dazzler has thrown themselves at him at least once, to his puzzled acceptance. You could chalk it up to his powers, which amount to him being super-lucky. [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre In everything.]]
* ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules'': Hercules fits under this trope as well, when he isn't being an ''actual'' {{Pornomancer}}. Take, for example, ''Herc #8'', in which Hercules is enslaved by The Queen Of Spider-Island and receives the powers of ComicBook/SpiderMan as well as the ability to transform into a [[OneWingedAngel Spider-centaurid]]. As a BrainwashedAndCrazy Herc battles the ComicBook/XMen, the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology mythological Arachne]] (who is half-spider) comes to Herc's rescue . . . and [[EatingTheEyeCandy then realizes that his new form is exactly what she needs . . .]]
* ComicBook/SpiderMan. Sorta. During a particularly weird story arc, he is [[VillainessesWantHeroes pursed by]] The Queen, a [[EvilIsSexy sexy insectoid supervillainess]]. At one point, she captures and kisses Spidey, which somehow [[MisterSeahorse impregnates him]]. (To the story's credit, this is treated as horrific for our hero.) He later dies and [[DeathIsCheap is resurrected almost immediately after]] by giving birth to ''himself''. Yeah. We warned you this story was weird.
* ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'': Nearly every woman the barbarian meets wants to jump his bones, and some are less savory about it than others. Many a wicked empress or sorceress has tried to enslave Conan through coercion or MindControl, and it hasn't worked out well for any of them.
* ''Comicbook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'': Jon Webb, for the entirety of issue #14. After being force-fed a hallucinogen, he is constantly passed around between dozens upon dozens of supernatural babes. Tarot, his girlfriend, is actually delighted that he's spending the night making so many women happy. The sex itself is frequently weird, with him being used by [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever giant women]], [[LittlePeople little women]], [[CuteMonsterGirl monster women]], [[OurTrollsAreDifferent troll women]], and women that want to use him as dinner later.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Common in {{Lemon}}s. [[Administrivia/NoLewdnessNoPrudishness ...And we'll leave it at that.]]
* ''Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops'':
** Manga/{{Ranma|OneHalf}}, to his increasing distress. Examples include [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Skuld]] landing on him in while he was in the tub (she was going commando), and both [[Manga/TenchiMuyo Washu]] and [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] have forced themselves on him. [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale Ranma's new reputation as "the Stud of the Gods" doesn't help any]].
** Manga/{{Naruto}} too. Hell, [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale every male character]] in Innortal's original series.
* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Xander]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11181910/37/Yet-Again-Still-Even-More-Fragments Working for the Weekend]]'' has apparently taken the virginity of at least a couple dozen women. Because he's teleported to an Earth with no people once a week (for three days on that end but one day on our end), a lot of girls have tagged along and used it as a way to lose their virginity. Notably, everyone has adopted the Vegas rule (What happens there, stays there) and, after having gotten burned a few times, Xander assumes the girl doesn't want anything while in Sunnydale unless they make a move first.
* Very much PlayedForDrama in ''[[FanFic/TriptychContinuum A Mark Of Appeal]]''. Joyous Release has a cutie mark talent for sex appeal, which she cannot turn off or control in any way. Any sapient being who spends more than a minute or two in her presence is consumed by lust for her, regardless of species, sexual orientation, or marital status. She has tried everything up to and including physically cutting out her mark (which doesn't work) to rid herself of this "talent", and finally seeks out Princess Luna as her last hope for a normal life, or indeed [[DrivenToSuicide any life at all]].

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Franchise/IndianaJones, at least in regards to his ''students'', some of whom are ''minors''. It's shown that Indy tends to try and ignore their advances, but at the same time, it's implied that he's given in more than once. Marian Ravenwood was 14 when they hooked up.
%%* ''Film/PootieTang''. Even when he was a child.
* To an extent, Will Ferrell's character from ''Film/TheOtherGuys'' is inexplicably attractive to women who are seemingly way out of his league. He frequently talks about how plain his wife (Eva Mendez!) is and at the end of the movie he casually mentions that an ex of his grew up to be an actress... "The girl I lost my virginity to actually became a TV actress: Heather Locklear. You've heard of her? She was much chubbier back then." He was also a pimp for a time.

* ''LightNovel/StrikeTheBlood'': Kojou Akatsuki is an interesting case. He's [[OurVampiresAreDifferent a vampire]], and this series treats [[KissOfTheVampire his bloodlust and blood-sucking as being akin to actual love and sex]]. (At one point, he even refers to himself as a "virgin" vampire because he's never drank blood.) Further, the only way for him to gain control over his powers is to drink the blood of someone new. So every storyarc follows a similar pattern: Akatsuki and the GirlOfTheWeek become emotionally close, eventually are trapped together in a life-or-death situation, and she insists that he drink her blood to awaken new power. Every time, he insists that he had no choice.
* ''Literature/AnitaBlake'' is a female example, and has all those UnfortunateImplications the description mentions. Though she gets to insist it's not her fault since it's because of her accidentally acquired succubus powers that make her have to or she'll die.
* Thomas Raith in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' is a White Court vampire, which means he feeds on [[EmotionEater life force generated by emotions]], and the most common emotion is lust. Being White Court, he is born with a "demon" bonded to his soul that tries to feed constantly and ''needs'' that energy, and if it doesn't get it the demon drives him into an insane, psychic-raping frenzy. When he isn't getting fed on human life energy, Thomas is unintentionally exuding a psychic "come hither" compulsion in people around him, which makes it hard for him to try to hold down a job when both men and women are either coming on to him or actually jumping his bones in the break room, and the demon isn't letting Thomas say no. It gets bad enough that he even starts pulling in joggers when he goes out for a run.
* Sir Lancelot in the legend of ''Myth/KingArthur'' was raped by two separate women: Lady Elaine and her servant, Brisen.
* Alatiel in ''Literature/TheDecameron'' is a rare female version. She winds up kidnapped, and loses her virginity when her captor gets her inebriated before having his way with her. She grew a taste for it ''very'' quickly. From there, men constantly fight over her, capture or enslave her, rarely of her own volition, but she hardly minds the constant sex. By the end, when she meets the man she is to marry, she's afraid that the problems associated with female versions of this trope will deter her suitor, but he says "Nope!" and they marry and live HappilyEverAfter.
* Literature/JohnCarterOfMars only ever had eyes for Dejah Thoris, but that didn't prevent him from attracting the affections of Thuvia, Phaidor, and Ozara, among others.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Brittany in ''Series/{{Glee}}''. It is implied that she had slept with nearly every guy in the school, yet you never see her trying, and she doesn't seem to realize how unusual this is.
* Randy in ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' borders on this trope; much to everyone's surprise, he turns out to be very good in bed during his green card marriage, but he doesn't seem to know this about himself. As a result, though, he doesn't [[ReallyGetsAround Really Get Around]] much during the series.
* This seems to be the default programming of Warren's sexbots on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer.''
* Deconstructed to horrific effect with the premise of ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', where the "dolls" are selected for physical attractriveness and repeatedly brainwashed and mindwiped, meaning that they become the dream lover of a variety of clients while never quite knowing or remembering afterwards. For the clients, this means a lover who will indulge their worst fantasies and never remember afterwards, as in their mindwiped "doll" state, they're all childlike amnesiacs. [[SpannerInTheWorks Or at least that's how it's supposed to work.]]
* Dr. Chase on ''Series/{{House}}''... sorta. It's been shown on occasion that he can't turn off women even when he's ''trying''.
* Creator/WillSmith in ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir''. Though Will himself is definitely TheCasanova, there has been an occasional story about a woman who just wouldn't take no for an answer, or whom sleeping with was just an all-around bad idea. [[MrsRobinson His girlfriend's mother, for example.]]
* Daniel in ''Series/StargateSG1''. Two episodes after his wife is kidnapped by the Goa'uld, he gets lucky with an alien high-priest's daughter when they accidentally revert to a neanderthal state. After that, he gets jumped by Hathor, Shyla, and Linea, mind-raped by Sarah/Osiris, and is propositioned repeatedly by Vala ([[spoiler:who he eventually [[TheyDo obliges]] during the series finale... which is then erased by intentional time screwyness]]). And of course, he often doesn't get much of a say in the matter....
* The Eleventh Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho''. Technically, several previous incarnations have had shades of this, but due to the MoralGuardians it was usually too subtle to really qualify. Mata Hari, Queen Nefertiti, Marilyn Monroe, and in his tenth incarnation, Queen Elizabeth I and Madame de Pompadour are some of his most recognizable entanglements. And as far as companions go, Rose Tyler and Martha Jones made it unambigiously clear they'd jump the Doctor's bones at the slightest provocation (making [[spoiler:the cloned Doctor Rose ends up with a pretty lucky fella]]), and Amy Pond actually tries to get the Eleventh Doctor to sleep with her -- the day before her marriage!
* After saving Tyrion's life in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' Podrick is rewarded with three extremely gifted prostitutes. When he returns he also returns Tyrion's money, it turns out the girls were so impressed they did it for free. Tyrion tries to figure it out, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny but quickly becomes flabbergasted, reaches for the wine, and proceeds to get Podrick plastered so he would share details.]]
* ''Series/MillionYenWomen'': Six months after having been invited into his house by a mysterious, four of the five women start making advances to Shin. Shin is generally receptive, but quite akward and hesistant about it. Things tend to stop short of actual sex, however.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Accoridng to the UsefulNotes/{{Kabbalah}}, King David was seduced by [[HornyDevils a succubus]] in order to give birth to Asmodeus, who eventually becomes the [[{{Satan}} King of]] {{Hell}}.
* By many interpretations of the Literature/TheQuran, [[OurJinnsAreDifferent Jinns]] are forbidden from marrying or mating with humanity. That hasn't stopped many of them from seducing humans anyway.
* In Literature/TheBible, Lot is forced upon by [[ParentalIncest both of his daughters]] in order to make them pregnant. Their reasons for this are often interpreted as them mistakenly believing that [[AdamAndEvePlot God had killed every man on Earth except for Lot]].
* Myth/ClassicalMythology:
** Hercules, even moreso than his comic book interpretation above. During his Twelve Labors, he slept with King Thespius's daughters (all fifty of them). Some accounts state this was ''one'' of his labors, other accounts say that this was the only way to secure the King's assistance (because the King [[IWantGrandkids wanted grandchildren]]) and some accounts say that the reward for his deeds was... doing the deed. (Thespius certainly got what he wanted; all fifty of his daughters conceived a child as a result.) Another has Hercules and Theseus visit the Amazons. The queen, wishing to enjoy Theseus' company for a few days, refuses to let them leave before Hercules gets fifty Amazons pregnant. You can guess how long that lasted.
** [[Literature/TheOdyssey Odysseus]], during his quest to return home from the Trojan War. He gets shipwrecked twice and is forced to become the love slave of both [[HotWitch Circe]] and [[LoveGoddess Calypso]] respectively. This is treated relatively seriously; though Odysseus could only admit that both of his lovers were more attractive than his wife Penelope, the only thing he really wanted was to return to his OneTrueLove.
* Myth/NorseMythology has Freyja. Ironically, she is a LoveGoddess and was well known for [[ReallyGetsAround Really Getting Around]], but there is one myth in which she was rescued from a harsh snow storm by a quartet of dwarves. The dwarves saved her life and in return, each one wanted sex with her. She politely refused and was soon to be on her way -- until she saw a necklace of theirs that she wanted badly. Let's put it this way: ''everybody'' got what they wanted that night.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Videogame/{{Fable}}'':
** You, if you have trouble keeping it in your pants. So long as you're amicable and nice (and sometimes, even if you're not), you're guaranteed to have at least one NPC eager to roll in the hay with you even if you weren't really trying.
** In ''VideoGame/FableII'' eligible citizens will eventually fall for a famous hero simply by virtue of said hero's reputation. A particularly heroic player character will easily capture the hearts of pretty much everyone attracted to his or her gender. It eventually becomes normal to be propositioned when you're just passing through a town or village. Even an outright evil PC will still get random advances from people who are [[EvilIsSexy into evil bastards]].
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'':
** Alistair starts as a virgin and is rather clueless in regards to women, but during the course of ''one'' playthrough, you can help him bed the pirate queen Isabela, Queen Anora, his hated rival Morrigan, and ''yourself'', provided that you "[[DoubleEntendre harden]]" him [[UnEnTendre (EMOTIONALLY)]] first.
** [[PlayerCharacter The Warden]] can wind up this way themselves, as several romances can be initiated simply be being friendly.
* [[TheProtagonist The Princess]] from ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues'', a fanmade ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' module, can be this or ThePornomancer. Depending on how you play her.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Gary of ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' has come to embody this trope, except insofar as he doesn't always get as far as full sex, after starting out as an UnluckyEverydude. Along with his {{adorkable}} if passive charm, it turns out he's got a talent for cunnilingus, which makes every woman ([[EvenTheGuysWantHim and some men]]) willing to try any dirty trick to get him. Amber even blindfolded him to make him think he was kissing someone else while he went down on her. Thus far, he has been utterly ''incapable'' of saying the word "No" and sticking with it. Only comedy, and the occasional [[GambitPileup collision between multiple women]], sometimes literally at the door to his bedroom, have kept him from actual sex with most of these pursuers.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Girly}}'', there was an antagonist only known as Chupacabra, who women are extremely attracted to, it becomes a plot point to stop him. Later becomes a regular cast member known as Chuy who, for most of the series, tries to avoid women at all cost. Apparently an inherited trait from his father. Chuy is almost a literal pornomancer, as these things happen by accident and he cannot turn it off. This ability even rubs off [[spoiler:on his eventual wife, Autumn]].
