[[caption-width-right:350:Oh. Hi!]]

AliceAndBob are in Bob's bed having a... sexual interlude. In bursts a messenger -- let's call her Carol -- who has some important news to tell Bob. Instead of getting mad or awkwardly excusing himself so he can go take care of this new business in another room, Bob decides this development will ''not'' interrupt his activity. Instead, he remains in bed, completely naked, talking with the messenger as if he were sitting, fully-clothed, in his office. Alice's reaction varies; it can be anything from active, cheek-burning shame to boredom, impatience or disinterest. Note that it is almost always the male character who is doing something else, and the female character who reacts to this behavior.

It is important to note that the people who are likely to engage in Coitus Uninterruptus are villainous characters, or those who are of ambiguous "morality", typically to disrespect and/or deliberately offend the viewing character. A heroic character would usually be expected to feel some amount of anger or embarrassment upon being interrupted in this way, and would attempt to protect the modesty of his partner, whom he presumably would not want to subject to the associates' or strangers' gawking. Since perversion is a common trait among villains (as a way of marking them as unsuitable partners), Coitus Uninterruptus is a good way to show that a bad guy is [[KickTheDog particularly nasty]]. Villains who are extremely nasty may not even bother to ''stop'' the sex act once Carol has burst in through the door, instead continuing to bump and grind away while listening to the message and/or giving orders. Disgust may register on Alice or Carol's face, but neither of them will dare speak a word of protest, since it's obvious such a villain has very little empathy for other people, and might even be in the habit of [[BadBoss killing underlings for the slightest infractions]].

One less common form of Coitus Uninterruptus is to have an Alice and Bob engage in sex while in the presence of other people, who might watch or [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight simply go about their business, taking no notice.]] Again, it's usually villains or the morally ambiguous characters who have a tendency for this sort of behavior -- at least in ''non-pornographic'' movies -- although heroic types who are labeled as "sexually adventurous" might engage in it as well (they'll be less inclined to allow young children to witness it, though). In more recent works, protagonists may engage in Coitus Uninterruptus in order to show their coolness, aloofness, or just plain general superiority to other characters (i.e. "common" people). Or conceivably it could even be used in a stressful or dangerous situation, as an extremely eccentric version of StiffUpperLip. Like the villains, they are putting down the lesser characters by showing no respect for their sensibilities while making a general territorial statement.

Related to MakeOutKids, which is a PG rated version of this trope. A {{Sexposition}} scene may involve this.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Anime/{{Kite}}'', the BigBad Akai walks in on his partner Kanye having sex with what looks like a prepubescent girl. Kanye stops, draws his gun, sighs, says "Oh, it's just you," and then continues on with the sex.
* Nakago from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' experienced both sides of this phenomenon, once as the villain being interrupted (by an underling who burst in on him [[IntimateHealing while he was undergoing a healing sex treatment]]) and once as the messenger, delivering news to the perverted Kutou emperor, who was engaged with a pair of creepily laughing concubines at the time.
* The ORGA children from the anime ''Anime/{{Gilgamesh}}'' break into the bedroom of the series' PsychoForHire with the intention of asking him a few plot-pertinent questions only to find him ''in flagrante delicto''. He's thoughtful enough to answer their questions (although whilst being unashamedly naked for the first few exchanges).
* In ''Anime/NinjaScroll'', at one point Kagero reports a massacre to her chamberlain. He's preoccupied. She's disgusted... and possibly jealous, depending on how you interpret the face she makes, since she's pretty much the definition of CantHaveSexEver.
* ''Manga/Golgo13'' has occasionally had informants walk in on him while he was screwing a random woman, all the while [[PerpetualFrowner his expression doesn't change one bit.]]
** On one occasion, police officers arrested him while he was having sex. When he stood up, he didn't... how shall we put this... "lay down". One cop was surprised, the other disgusted.
* Happens in ''Manga/IkkiTousen: Dragon Destiny'', where Kakuka from Kyoushou's PowerTrio and his girlfriend [[TheStrategist Kaku Bunwa]] like to discuss strategies when they're having sex.
* Played sickeningly straight in ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' during a scene in which a child wandering around a red light district finds a man about to have sex with a prostitute in a back alley. The man actually tells the child to watch what he's going to do. Made worse by the fact that A) He's a school teacher and B) pays the child afterwards
* In the rather unsubtle Seinen manga ''Manga/UbelBlatt'', one major villain -- a huge man -- is introduced raping a small young girl who goes unnamed. When he is interrupted, he doesn't stop -- he murders one of the two messengers by punching through his head, then, once he's done, he [[MoralEventHorizon hands the young girl off to his horse]]. Only then does he address the messengers directly. Whether she's killed or not isn't shown, but she gets a very long scream for someone who's being trampled.
* The BigBad of the ''[[Manga/{{Zeorymer}} Meiou Project Zeorymer]]'' manga is a picture-perfect example of the "doesn't stop having sex even after the messenger bursts in" example given at the top of this page.
* In the beginning of ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'', the daimyo's son openly fondles the breasts of one of the women who are with him, while ordering food at Fuu's resturant.
* Non-villainous example: In ''Anime/HareGuu'', the stupid couple lives up to their name when Marie (who was trying to get Haré to like her) asked them how they met and fell in love. They proceed to reminisce and reenact the whole thing, including having {{Pixellat|ion}}ed sex right in front of the 11 year old girl.
* Misaki and Usami in ''Manga/JunjouRomantica'' are walked in on twice; once by Aikawa, second time by Aikawa and Isaka. Usami doesn't seem to care that much, while Misaki tries to flee for his life. Isaka as far as sits on the bedside and says he'll give them ten minutes to finish up ''and then keeps sitting on the bedside''.
** Usagi is not happy about the interruption. However, considering the fact that he's a [[BunnyEarsLawyer BunnyEarsWriter]] who is notorious with deadlines to the point that Aikawa has almost killed him (literally) on 5 separate occasions trying to get the work in on time, the only thing either Isaka (childhood friend and head editor) or Aikawa (battle-hardened personal editor) think about is those elusive manuscripts (and getting him to even ''try'' to promote his books)! [[TheChewToy Poor Misaki...]]
* This trope is played with, er, more than once in the manga ''OurKingdom'' where Rei will frequently be trying to make-out with Akira when someone walks in on them. Akira's reaction? Horrified embarrassment and denial. Rei's reaction? Kick them out (viciously) and get back to what he was ''trying'' to accomplish.
* This, combined with NotWhatItLooksLike, happens in the second episode of the second season of ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. Early that morning, Agnes, one of the knights of the realm, barges into Louise's room to report that Princess Henrietta (a close childhood friend of Louise's) has been kidnapped. The camera pans down to reveal... Louise, shirt half open, breathing heavily, and gripping a riding crop. Saito is shirtless, unconscious, and covered in scratches and bruises. ''Awkward.''
** This trope is averted three times in one episode, twice by Saito and Henrietta, once by [[LesYay Louise and Agnes]].
* ''VisualNovel/YosugaNoSora'':
** In Episode 8, Sora walks in on her brother having sex. Instead of stopping when he sees her standing there, he just looks at her as he continues thrusting.
** In Episode 11, it's [[BrotherSisterIncest Sora and her brother]] who get walked on. Sora is in the middle of her orgasm. And once again, he just continues.
* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', one of the Black Dog knights brings his master Wyald an order from the King of Midland while he's having sex with one of the dozens of women that are in the room [[spoiler: who are most likely there by force since his [[CatchPhrase motto]] is "[[TheHedonist Enjoyment and Excitement]]" which translates to [[SerialRapist "Rape is My Pastime."]]]]
** Wyald goes one better and finishes up with the woman by choking her to death.
* In ''Manga/AnneFreaks'', while no-one walks in on the couple, answering the telephone during intercourse seems nothing extraordinary.
* In ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', Tamao calls her friend Nyarko's cellphone, only to be told that now isn't a good time...in between moans and gasps of "Oh, Mahiro-san~!" Of course, since this is [[LovableSexManiac Nyarko]], [[ThatLiarLies she's faking it (as usual)]]; it turns out they're in the middle of a horde of monsters, and Mahiro yells at her to quit fooling around and do something before they get killed.
* In ''Manga/SakuraGari'', Souma rapes his servant Masataka, and he doesn't stop when his younger sister catches them despite Masataka's pleas.
* In Chapter 15 of ''Maka-Maka'', Jun and Nene continue to get it on despite the ringing doorbell, and then a ringing cellphone. And then, in Chapter 19, Nene talks on her cellphone ''during'' the act.
* In Chapter 13 of ''Minimum'', Satou's sister talks on her cellphone while she's being fucked by some guy in his bedroom. Her euphoric speech is borderline on TheUnintelligible.
-->'''Satou:''' ''(Sex or the phone, choose one dammit...!!)''
* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa'': {{Zigzagged}} between Heavy Metal and Athena during the ''"MILF of Steel"'' epilogue story.
** Heavy Metal gloats about how he defeated Athena 20 years ago, and how [[RapeAsBackstory he and his minions took turns with her]], before finally gang raping her - while he's doing it again in the present! He even has the audacity to ask if her daughter, Clara, [[ChildByRape might be his]] since she gave birth to her sometime after the incident.
** Athena doesn't bother to stop him from banging her. Instead, she turns around to look him in the eye and tell him he's wrong. She explains she had already slept [[HappilyMarried with her husband]] and was pregnant with ''his'' child, before Heavy Metal and his men got to her. Then while he's still inside her, Athena tightens her legs around his waist and uses [[SuperStrength her immense strength]] [[RapeAndRevenge to crush his spine.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* A rare heroic (or at least non-villainous) example takes place in one story in Creator/PhilFoglio's ''ComicBook/{{Xxxenophile}}'' ("K'nitchers at an Exhibition"). A human official's wife starts to get frisky with him during a meeting with the [[StarfishAliens extremely non-human]] locals. Very frisky. At the end of the meeting, he worries about having offended the locals, while the wife replies they were more likely to offend the houseplants, as the aliens have no idea what they're doing. Meanwhile, in another room, the head local and his companions have much the same discussion! (The only thing that is even remotely a possibility as being their "activity", as least that is visible, is a tiny puff of smoke or vapor above one of the aliens' heads.)
* In ''The Eternal'', Ikaeden goes to talk with Kurassus while the latter is indulging his extreme tastes with some sex slaves, two of whom might already be dead (one's in a gas mask, another's hanging over a fire, and the other is bent over in front of him as he slices up her backside). Not only does he invite his commanding officer in; in the middle of the conversation, he breaks off mid-sentence: "Of course, Ikaeden, I -- their openings are much better when they are cut wider..."
* In ''ComicBook/{{Artesia}} Afield'', the Palatian mercenary captain Daemander gives a CampFollower the business in the same tent as several of his lieutenants discussing their employer (Artesia herself). It's the second kind, since the lieutenants obviously find nothing strange about Daemander's actions and don't even take any notice. He only stops pounding the girl when he detects Artesia and her two bodyguards in the tent using an invisibility spell.
* One issue of ''[[ComicBook/BatmanAndTheOutsiders The Outsiders]]'' had Starfire and Jade walking into Shift (a kind of clone of ComicBook/{{Metamorpho}}) and Indigo (a robot from the future) having very strange sex in the [[CoolAirship Pequod]]. Indigo sensed them [[IncrediblyLamePun coming]], but didn't want to spoil the mood.
* ''Dominic Fortune'' has a double example where one man is having sex with a callgirl while on the phone to another man who is being orally serviced by his secretary. Both men are apparently able to keep the conversation going without the other man being aware.
* Subverted in the graphic novel adaptation of ''[[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire A Game of Thrones]]'': Maester Luwin walks into the room just after Ned and Catelyn Stark had sex to deliver a message to the latter. Catelyn reads it then gets up ''completely naked'' to burn it in the fireplace. When Ned is taken aback at this, Catelyn points out that Luwin has delivered all their children.
* In ComicBook/{{Manifest}}, BigBad Saturn has sex with his psychic aide and lover Sibyl while his generals and advisers report on the status of his kidnapped daughter. He briefly stops to yell at the generals, and then asks Sibyl "Who told you to put your robe back on?" before the camera cuts to the next panel.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Happens in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5215578/1/bSirius_b_bOrion_b_bBlack_b this]] [[Literature/HarryPotter Sirius/Lupin]] fic. Made hilarious by how nonchalant the person walking in on them is.
* Played for horror in ''FanFic/FalloutEquestriaProjectHorizons''. Blackjack storms into the office of Stable 99's [[DrunkWithPower insane overseer]], who proceeds to chew her out while [[AssShove anally raping]] [[TheLancer P-21]] with an oxygen bottle.
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': In chapter twelve's omake Misato and Kaji step inside the former's apartment and find Shinji and Asuka making love on the kitchen floor. Misato started screaming them, but they "cheerfully ignored her".
* In ''FanFic/ThatEpicPlan'', [[KickTheDog Beyond tries to initiate sex with Light in front of the taskforce,]] [[{{Squick}} including Light's father.]]
* ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/87668/that-elder-wand That Elder Wand]]'' combines this with InterspeciesRomance to efficiently horrify Twilight Sparkle and Harry Potter.
* Happens offscreen in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12470708/1/It-s-Secret-To-Everyone this]] ''VideoGame/Persona5'' fic. When the Phantom Thieves find out that Joker and Ann have been getting busy in Palaces, Makoto points out that they carry the risk of being interrupted by Shadows. Joker flippantly responds that it ''has'' happened before, and Ann lustfully reminisces on his ability to multitask. Ryuji is impressed, Makoto isn't.

* ''Film/JamesBond'', particularly in ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' and ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'' (where Bond continues in front of his commanding officials - helps that he's seen only by camera).
** By ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' it was threatening to become a regular fixture:
--->'''M:''' Well done on your mission, 007! We're patching you into a live video feed to the Palace and the White House, without first checking to see if you're having sex!
** Whilst ''Moonraker'' is universally regarded as one of the worst 007 films, it does contain the best line ever, after Bond has been caught going at it...''[[ZeroGSpot in outer space]]'':
--->'''M''': My ''god'', what's Bond doing?
--->'''[[GadgeteerGenius Q]]''': [[DeadpanSnarker I think he's attempting re-entry sir.]]
** Which is followed by an ''even better'' one:
--->'''Dr. Goodhead:''' Take me around the world one more time...
** The final scene of ''Film/AViewToAKill'' is of Bond and Stacey [[ShowerOfLove in the shower together]] when a robot with a remote camera on it piloted by Q homes in on them. Q makes a face and reports back to M that Bond is alive; Bond turns and sees the robot, throws a towel over it, and then turns back to Stacey as if nothing happened.
** Similarly, in ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', Bond answers the door naked. Neither he nor Mathis even allude to the fact that he has no pants.
** Also in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies''. As Bond and his girl du jour Wai Lin flee from the bad guys, Bond drives their motorcycle over the roofs of several buildings, eventually crashing through an apartment. The copulating couple inside keeps right at it, not even looking up, implying that they're so into each other (so to speak) and what they're doing that they genuinely didn't even notice.
* Most famously subverted in ''Film/BoogieNights'', where the porn-star wife of a man (William H. Macy) engages in Coitus Uninterruptus with other partners right in front of him, on a regular basis; [[spoiler:eventually he gets fed up, and ends up fatally shooting her, her lover(s), and then finally himself.]]
* In one scene in ''Film/ThrowMommaFromTheTrain'', Margaret is able to have sex and carry on an intelligent telephone conversation with her agent at the same time. (Well, after Owen, who had snuck into the room to kill her and is hiding behind the couch, "helpfully" pushes the phone to where she can reach it.)
* The film ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' portrays the Sheriff of Nottingham as an unrepentant pervert who won't even allow his sex partners to cover up during Coitus Uninterruptus. Late in the movie, he also attempts to rape Maid Marian in full view of priest and witnesses ''during their wedding''.
* In Lu Chuan's ''Film/WangDeShengYan'', emperor-to-be Liu Bang is about to be overrun by his erstwhile master Xiang Yu, but his friend Zhiang is initially rebuffed by Liu Bang.
* In an extreme and probably the greatest example, the movie ''Film/ShootEmUp'' has the protagonist in a gunfight with five men, while having sex at the same time. Apparently ''great'' sex, to judge by Creator/MonicaBellucci's reaction, though that might have at least partially been screams of fear. This is naturally, like everything else in the movie, taken to the point of parody.
-->[[BondOneLiner "Talk about shooting your load."]]
* In ''Film/DriveAngry'', [[Creator/NicolasCage Milton]] is having sex with a waitress in a motel room when she asks why he hasn't taken his clothes off. He answers, "I never disrobe before a gunfight" promptly followed by a several people breaking into their motel room armed with various weapons. He just proceeds to kill them all while still having sex with the waitress. Notably, the experience leaves her terrified out of her her wits and quite possibly traumatized.
* In the ''Dirty Harry'' film ''Film/SuddenImpact'', one of the male villains is having rough sex with a woman, and hurting her, and enjoying that it hurts her, when the phone rings. He continues to have painful (to her) sex with this woman, while on the phone, after answering the phone with an obscene response.
* Implied in Creator/MichaelBay's ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', with Creator/ShiaLaBeouf and Creator/MeganFox making out on Bumblebee's bonnet, while the other Autobots look on.
** And Bumblebee ''was'' [[IncrediblyLamePun his]] [[TheAllegedCar first]] {{Lemon}}.
** So, if you have sex in the back seat of a transforming car, is it a threesome?
*** [[JustForPun Well, they are both inside him.]]
*** It may be, judging by Bumblebee's expression [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=239 here]].
* Appears (the extreme version) in ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'' during a conversation between [[Creator/ChristopherMarlowe Kit Marlowe]] and Richard Burbage. None of the characters involved is really a villain, and none of them seems particularly disturbed about it. Marlowe mildly scolds Burbage for wasting his energy, and then proceeds to carry out a perfectly normal conversation.
* Very early on, ''Film/AmericanPie presents: Beta House'' gives us an example of the "morally ambiguous" variety.
** The second ''Film/AmericanPie'' film has Jim's father walk on him near the beginning. The six pack of beer he then drops on the floor is used as a crude visual metaphor.
** Likewise, the third ''Film/AmericanPie'' has Jim talking to his father in his restaurant...while Michelle is under the table (need I say more?). When he's forced to stand up at a certain point, the other patrons are shocked.
* The scene in ''Film/EuroTrip'' where Jamie gets mugged while the camera store girl is giving him a blowjob. Jamie is too ecstatic to care that he's handing over all the group's passports and money.
** Later on when Scottie and Mieke are having sex in the confessional booth they're both so lost in their sexual rapture that they barely acknowledge a middle aged woman confessing to them that she's been cheating on her husband - Scottie blankly tells her that God will forgive her and then she is frightened off when she realizes what's going on when she sees Mieke's shapely ass almost literally shoved into her face (in the original version of the scene the old lady actually comes back to watch and offers sex tips to the young couple before finding a man of her own to pleasure her in the adjoining booth -- Scottie and Mieke still don't notice her).
* In the movie ''Film/WhereTheTruthLies'', Creator/KevinBacon's character measures his flings by how they react to being seen naked by hotel staff, although usually not during but immediately after sex.
* Brazilian movie ''Divã'' had protagonist Mercedes going after her friend's daughter for advice. The girl is having sex when she was supposed to be studying ("I'm giving it a break" "[[BreakingTheFourthWall Yeah, you're giving in]]"). Mercedes just closes the door and talks with the girl from outside (of course for one of the questions, Mercedes just assumed [[TheImmodestOrgasm the moaning]] was the answer).
* In one scene of the 2009 ''Film/TheBadLieutenantPortOfCallNewOrleans'', a drug starved [[DirtyCop McDonagh]] (Nicolas Cage) harasses a couple and illegally searches them for drugs. The girl, who has a pipe and a stash on her, shotguns with him to avoid any trouble. It turns into a bit of tongue wrestling that spirals into them pants-less and bumping bits ''[[{{squick}} in front of her boyfriend]] on the hood of his car''. But what really [[IncrediblyLamePun nails]] this scene to the trope is when the disgusted boyfriend tries to leave and [=McDonagh=] shoots his gun in the air and orders his ''audience'' to keep watching. He later regrets that it was heroin he smoked with her and not cocaine.
* In the Australian film ''Film/StrictlyBallroom'', not only does the villain get a phone call while having sex with his wife, but after hanging up he proceeds to gripe about it to her while she's still gasping in ecstasy.
* In ''Film/ClassAct'' when Duncan is caught having sex with Damita by his dad. He didn't exactly get out of position. Then again, he was probably stunned by how happy his dad was that he wasn't gay.
* Subverted in the 2004 movie ''Film/{{Crash}}''. Detective Graham Waters (played by Don Cheadle) is having sex when his mother calls asking about his missing younger brother. He hangs up, telling her he can't talk because "I'm having sex with a white woman." The white Hispanic lady in question is not amused at his dismissive treatment of his family and interrupts coitus herself.
* ''Film/TheCookTheThiefHisWifeAndHerLover'' is a very surreal movie in which the Wife and Lover have sex in the kitchen of a restaurant while the staff continues working around them.
%% * Played straight as an arrow in ''Film/HotTubTimeMachine''. In fact, one character's [[ItMakesSenseInContext life depends on the sex being completed no matter what]].
* In ''The Great White Hype'', rocker/boxer Terry Conklin makes out with a groupie while negotiating with promoter Fred Sultan and his team. It's treated as perfectly normal.
* ''Film/VetHard'': When Koen and Katja are [[MakingLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces getting it on in the Business Class Lounge]] (well, sort of), he gets a phone call from Bennie and takes this (considering he is here on a mission for Bennie, and Katja just tagged along), while Katja just "takes care of herself". Bennie hears Katja's moans in the background and after hanging up shouts "we should have left that bitch at home!".

* The main villain in ''[[Literature/{{Mithgar}} Silver Wolf, Black Falcon]]'' is mentioned doing this. Though he dismisses the woman (who never appears again and never had a name in the first place) once he realizes how important the message is.
* In the [[Literature/TheCulture Culture]] novel ''Literature/UseOfWeapons'', a flashback from the protagonist's life shows Elethiomel pissing off his [[CainAndAbel step-brother]] through this trope. Cheradenine had heard his sister crying out, and when he goes to see what happened, finds her having sex with Elethiomel, who greets him nonchalantly. Cheradenine then runs out, while his sister cries and Elethiomel laughs.
* Played entirely straight in ''Literature/MidnightInTheGardenOfGoodAndEvil''. The Man doesn't even pull out or wilt, just pauses for a few seconds while people pass the bush he's behind.
* When Jagang first corrupts the Sisters of the Light in the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series, it's strongly implied that he is getting a blowjob from several already corrupted ones while he is speaking to them.
* In Literature/EricFlint's ''[[Literature/JoesWorld Forward the Mage]]'', the notorious highway robber Rascogne de Sevigneois simultaneously makes love to one of the passengers of the stagecoach he's robbing, and fights a duel with another passenger who takes exception to him seducing another man's wife. It's implied that the only things visible are Rascogne's head and sword arm.
* ''Literature/TheShadowOfTheLion'' has a rare example with sympathetic characters, when Francesca saves Erik and Manfred from the [[CopsAndDetectives schiopettieri]].
* In ''Literature/WizardAndGlass'', villain Eldred Jonas is having sex with his mistress when they hear an oil patch getting blown up by the heroes. They don't stop, because they "had reached the point where it was impossible to stop, even under threat of death or dismemberment."
* The book ''[[HolyShitQuotient WTF!?]] Survival Guide'' lists one of the things to do if your partner gets a phone call during nookie as "Make a game of it!" see how long your partner can remain coherent while you screw her while she's on the phone, and maybe even let the other guy play too!
** Similarly, in the novel ''Sleeping Around'' by Catherine Townsend, the protagonist types up an article on a Blackberry and calls her boss to make sure it's been received, all while her boyfriend is going down on her.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles,'' Harry Dresden walks in on Ms. Demeter sitting on [[FriendlyEnemy John Marcone's]] lap near the end of ''Literature/WhiteNight''. Being a DeadpanSnarker to the fullest, he immediately curses himself... for not arriving ten minutes later, as he would have then walked in "''in media res''", which would have been infinitely more awkward for Marcone.
** In the short story ''Backup'' narrated by Thomas, he ends up talking to [[HornyDevils Lara]] on the phone while she's quite audibly having sex. She gives her usual combination of threats/instructions and only gets distracted for a second.
* Creator/AllenSteele's ''A King of Infinite Space'' has a slight subversion. The guy doing it is portraying a slave-owning villain, and part of that is a very public blowjob, all to get the protagonist to man up, escape, and try to rescue his girlfriend. It's part of a BatmanGambit.
* In the Herman Wouk novel ''Don't Stop the Carnival'', the main character buys a hotel on a Caribbean island, but runs into many problems in the very first day. One of these is that when a middle-aged couple go to their room, they catch the bartender having sex with one of the maids. What really shocks them is that he doesn't even stop, just says something like "Oh, hello, I though you checked out".
* A rare version of PlayedForLaughs in one Literature/StephaniePlum novel: Stephanie and Lula walk in on a skip and her boyfriend in the middle of an enthusiastic make-up. Stephanie is embarrassed but former hooker Lula just critiques the woman's performance.
* In the Creator/DaleBrown novel ''Sky Masters'' a redshirt takes an alert call while he is getting disinterestedly... serviced.
* It occurs off-screen, but in ''A Song of Fire and Ice'', Lady Nym says she was in bed with the Fowler twins when news of her [[spoiler: father's death]] reached her.
* Happens when [[spoiler: Laurent and Damen finally get together]] in book 3 of the Literature/CaptivePrince series. While [[spoiler: Damen]] is embarrassed about it, [[spoiler: Laurent doesn't think anything of it, because semi-public sex is normal in his country. It provides a cute moment of culture shock between them as their relationship develops.]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Baltar on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' would often have this happen with his NotSoImaginaryFriend.
* Played straight on ''Series/TrueBlood'': Sookie and Pam walk in on Eric entertaining Yvetta for six hours straight in his basement. He casually leaves the dancer, still chained up, to discuss the whereabouts of her fiance in his altogether.
* The lead character of ''Series/{{House}}'' conducted a meeting with his team while lying in bed with a hooker. Several times in Season 7 Episode 16.
* ''Series/{{Rome}}'''s Atia frequently engages in sex whilst household servants are about. This says more about [[EvilMatriarch her character]] than it does about how historical concepts of privacy may have differed from our own. Marc Antony, from the same series, also is a frequent engager of public sex (once stopping his entire legion to have sex with a shepherd girl they ran across) and he's also portrayed as a mean, predatory character.
* Averted - sort of - in ''Series/GossipGirl''. Serena walks in and has a whole conversation with Blair, completely unaware that Chuck is under the covers saying good morning.
* In Episode 9 of ''BandOfBrothers'', this trope is subverted, as Captain Speirs walks in on Private Janovec having an "intimate moment" with a German fraulein. Naturally, Janovec gets out of bed and salutes Speirs. (No, not THAT way!)
* Occurs in ''Series/{{Angel}}'''s fifth season, though not for the usual reasons -- Eve and Angel are under a spell forcing them to carry out Lorne's (unintentional) instructions, and if other people want to walk into the room and discuss what's causing everyone to behave oddly, they'll just have to deal.[[note]] During an argument between the two, Lorne had sarcastically told them to get a room. Which they were then magically compelled to do, ending up in Angel's office during a party.[[/note]]
* In the HBO miniseries ''UsefulNotes/JohnAdams'', of all things, the title character bursts into Creator/BenjaminFranklin's suite to find him engaged in a game of bathtub chess with a French noblewoman. Seeing as how it is 1777 and all, Adams finds the scene so scandalous that he barely manages to stammer that Franklin has been appointed as lead ambassador.
* ''Series/QueerAsFolk'' has Brian Kinney, local TheCasanova, engaging in various sexual acts with a pair of twins. He is interrupted in the throes of passion by a phone call informing him that his father has passed away. The twins express their condolences, and suggest they leave. Brian's response? "Who told you to stop?"
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' brought us Joey's (offshot, though audible) performance in a porn movie. In which he performs this trope as a photocopier repair man.
--> "That's not good for the paper tray!"
* Used as a standard running gag on the HBO series ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', in order to underscore the women-characters as being liberated (or jaded) beyond modesty.
** Samantha and Richard are engaged in sex on his private jet, while both casually converse with the Pilot who walks in, embarrassed.
** Charlotte is having sex with her husband, Trey, while his mother Bunny barges into their apartment unannounced; rather than being embarrassed and covering up, both simply laugh at Bunny, embarrassing her into never bothering her again (see "territorial dominance," below).
** Samantha is having sex ''Basic Instinct'' style with a villain, when the police barge in to arrest him; unfazed, she calmly asks what the problem is, and the embarrassed officers ask her to "please remove your handcuffs from him, so we can put on ours."
** Samantha actually averts this in one scene while on a double date with a new girlfriend. When the other woman starts performing oral sex on her date in the ''middle of a crowded restaurant'', a shocked and disgusted Samantha storms out.
* In ''Series/NipTuck'', Escobar Gallardo uses this to intimidate Sean.
-->"If I wanted it to be, this[i.e. the random girl he's plowing] could be your wife".
* The UK comedy ''Series/ShamelessUK''. Fiona walks in on Kev and Veronica in the act. "Sorry, I came in the back way." "You're not the only one." After Fiona's asked what she came over to ask, they're right back at it. Almost before Fiona's even off-screen.
* In Creator/ChristopherTitus's comedy special ''Love is Evol'', he tells the story of his own conception. It involves his father going to his ex-girlfriend's (Titus' mother) house which eventually leads to sex (though, since his mom was crazy, his dad was of course palming a blade, just in case), in a segment that [[CrossesTheLineTwice incinerates the line with a tactical nuke, then pisses on the irradiated ashes]]. In the middle of it, her new boyfriend shows up, banging on the front door and crying. The elder Titus reviews his options:
-->I figured I could stop and be offended, '''or...''' I could get louder and become the offender. That’s right, kid. You were conceived during revenge sex.
* There's a scene in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' where Crichton walks in on D'Argo and Chiana. Funny because it happens ''twice in one episode'' - the first time Crichton is suitably distraught, but the second time he's so upset that he just sits down right there and starts talking to D'Argo (even casually acknowledging Chiana partway through), prompting D'Argo to say sarcastically, "Well, why don't you just sit down and tell us all about it?".
* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Out of Gas", we see a flashback where Mal goes to the engine room to get a status report on repairs to find his mechanic-at-the-time Bester busily putting it to a local girl with a starship fetish. Bester had... a hard time pulling himself away from his new friend to tell Mal why the ship wasn't fixed yet. [[spoiler:But the girl in question was Mal's future mechanic [[WrenchWench Kaylee]], who proceeded to impress Mal by correctly diagnosing and fixing the engine problem.]] It's even implied that they'd only been doing it in the engine room in the first place because Kaylee wanted get a look at the engines, and was busy diagnosing the problem while he was occupied. Kaylee ''really'' likes engines.
* A version of this trope appears in the ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' episode "Adrift". Gwen walks in on Jack and Ianto having sex, or getting there (lots of really heavy making out and both are [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]], but we don't see if there are pants). She's embarrassed and leaves, but Ianto chases after her (after putting a shirt on) to find out what she wanted. Jack makes a half-hearted attempt at putting his own shirt on and likewise goes to find out what she wants. Once they talk to her, Jack immediately calls Ianto back to the other room to continue sexy-time. While Gwen is still standing there.
* In the UK ''{{Series/Coupling}}'' Jane and Oliver's first time is interrupted by Steve to tell them Susan was having a baby. Steve and Susan then stay to chat.
* In the ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm'' episode "The Larry David Sandwich", Larry answers a phone call while having sex with his wife. She's quite upset about it, and when he hangs up, she tells him to "get off".
* The ''{{Series/Misfits}}'' Christmas Special features an embittered, corrupt Priest counting some wads of stolen money and receiving oral sex from a girl in a Santa hat (for extra evil points, she's under the influence of a sex-pheromone-manipulating superpower at the time, so he's actually sexually assaulting her). When he is interrupted by a group of six people, he just holds a conversation with them as though absolutely nothing unusual was happening. Although he does pull a few interesting facial expressions.
* ''Series/SnuffBox'' Matt is interrupted by the girl he's screwing's boyfriend, while being filmed by his own date: "Either go away or stay and watch. Either way, shut up!"
* In one episode of ''Series/BrothersAndSisters'', Kevin and Luke are just about to have sex when Sarah's great timing makes her knock at their door at this precise moment, prompting Luke to call her "Sarah Interruptus".
* Recurring sketch "The Shags" in ''Series/TheFastShow'' features a couple having sex while, for example, the removal men carry their bed into their new home (they cheerfully tell the jaw-dropped neighbours how pleased they are to meet them).
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. In "Smashed" Buffy and Spike are making out so passionately they don't even notice the building is collapsing around them, including a massive beam that crashes to the floor seconds after they've moved out of its way.
** They're so preoccupied that they don't even notice that [[DestructoNookie they're causing the building to collapse]]. The next morning when they wake up, Buffy asks when the house fell down.
** Then, in a later episode, Buffy is [[ItMakesSenseInContext turned invisible and is having sex with Spike]] when Xander walks in looking for her--Spike pretends he was doing push-ups. Naked. In his bed. Buffy, invisible at the time, had no problem trying to keep the sex going while Xander was still standing there.
* Happens occasionally in ''Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand''. Lucretia and Batiatus casually discuss business while stripping and being "fluffed" by their slaves before sex, without ever even looking at them. Barca and Pietros also have sex in their cell, within plain view of anyone who walks by; but really, where else could they go?
** The ultimate in Roman decadence: having slaves to do your foreplay for you.
* In a nastier than usual example of this trope, in Season 8, Episode 3 of ''Series/ThePractice'', instead of seeing the example we get it in the backstory. A woman was cheating on her husband with his best friend for ''six years''. When the judge asks him how he finally discovered his wife's affair, he explains that he came home from work earlier than usual one day to pleasantly surprise her. He discovered his best friend's car outside but thought nothing of it; his best friend sometimes comes over to fix things after all. So he went into the house, and discovered his best friend and his wife having sex...and when his wife and the man's best friend saw him arrive, they reacted by continuing to have sex. The judge and jury are outraged upon hearing this. To be fair, the woman defends herself by saying that she was in the middle of an orgasm when her husband walked in and was therefore not mentally clear enough to stop, but this does not win her sympathy with the judge since in order to be climaxing she had to have made the choice to have sex first.
* In the {{Creator/HBO}} miniseries ''Film/HemingwayAndGellhorn'', the title characters are having sex in a hotel room during a bombing raid. A bomb strikes nearby, and plaster falls on them, but they don't stop.

She and her "friend" are kissing each other's necks and he has already untied her [[WalkingSwimsuitScene bikini top]]:
--->'''Tom Ryan''' Sergeants Ryan and [=StJohn=], Palm Springs P.D..\\
'''Brenda''' Can you get back in 10 minutes?\\
'''Tom Ryan''' Cheaper than renting a video.\\
'''Cassie [=StJohn=]''' Are you Brenda, the manager?\\
'''Brenda''' Is there any way this can wait\\
'''Cassie''' We're here to talk about Mark Ripley, one of your tenants.\\
'''Brenda''' There's no one here by that name.\\
'''Cassie''' We traced a phone number by Ripley to his condominium apartment in this complex. J4. (Tom shows Brenda a photo)\\
'''Brenda''' That's Donnie. Donnie Travis. Apartment J4. Nice guy. Great swimmer. Great body!\\
'''Cassie''' Great.
* In the ''Series/TheAlmightyJohnsons'' episode "Folkmoot", when Stacey and Zeb hook up [[AliensMadeThemDoIt because of Sjöfn's powers]], other characters repeatedly walk in on them, but they don't stop.
* In ''Series/Unreal2015'', Quinn the hard-bitten reality show producer is barking orders to the production crew over walkie-talkie while her boss Chet is plowing her from behind.
* ''Series/PeakyBlinders'': Tommy Shelby apparently doesn't believe in knocking and bursts in on his brother John and John's wife Esme mid-sex. His excuse is that they should've locked the door, as it could have been anyone. John and Esme are much more annoyed that embarrassed. After he leaves, John and Esme start back up again.
* In ''Series/TrailerParkBoys'', Ricky and Lucy gamely -- and loudly -- carry on trying for a baby while a chain of people strike up a conversation with them from outside their trailer window. Not only do they not stop, they go at it hard enough to collapse the trailer.
* ''Series/{{Frontier}}'': When Grace comes back to Fort James and finds her Alehouse has been turned into a brothel in her absence, she storms into Chesterfield's room where he's having sex with Imogen at that moment. He doesn't let her presence interrupt him and just continues his business in front of her.

* Dar Williams' "The Pointless, Yet Poignant Crisis of a Co-ed":
-->Well sometimes, life gives us lessons sent in ridiculous packaging
-->And so I found him in the arms of a [[GranolaGirl Student Against the Treacherous Use of Fur]]
-->And he gave no apology
-->He just turned to me, [[TheStoner stoned out to the edge of oblivion]]
-->He didn't pull up the sheets, and I think he even smiled as he said to me:
-->"Well, I guess our dreams went up in smoke - heh, heh"
* [[Music/FascinatingAida Dillie Keane's]] song "Dogging," about an older couple making out (and then some) in their new car. Eventually, a crowd gathers, the police arrive [[spoiler: and join in the fun]] as does a film crew [[spoiler: and gives the couple a spot on a new [=TV=] program]]

The two of them keep going at it, though, as Man is given something just before the climax happens.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''Videogame/TheSims 2'' if you get a pair of characters to "woohoo" in the changing room of a clothing store, any other characters in the clothing store will cheer for you.
** Which can lead to unintentional comedy if the audience includes the sim's family members.
*** Aside from children, who will run to the cheering, see what is happening, realize who it is, and ''run away in humiliation'' (to the edge of the lot).
** Well, some of them just look exasperated. Especially the cashiers. Also, this works for photobooths too.
** Better yet, they seem completely oblivious even when "woohooing" in their homes/hotels/etc. They won't "start" woohooing in bed or in the hot tub with other sims in the room, but once they're in the middle of it, any number of sims can walk in and out as they please.
*** Of course, that rule applies only to sims who are a child or older, they'll do whatever they want if a toddler or baby is in the room
** It gets slightly disturbing if you get your sim to tell their cat/dog to "try for kitten/puppy". Assuming the cat/dog accepts, upon entering a kennel ''any'' sim in the vicinity will then run to the kennel where the cats/dogs are "[[UnusualEuphemism dancing the]] horizontal tango", and will then proceed to cheer…
** Averted in the original ''Videogame/TheSims'', though--other Sims walking in (in the relatively few circumstances when Sims could actually "woohoo") would cause the woohoo-ers to break it up.
** Also averted in Sims 3 if you have a couple attempt to go for it at a stranger's house, you'll be called out for inappropriate behaviour and kicked out.
** Mods and hacks that install sexual behavior do not usually include the privacy requirement that ordinary Woohoo does, so two sims may start engaging in the activity while an other sim is in the room and it will not phase anyone
* In VisualNovel/YuminaTheEthereal, during the sex scene with [[TheOjou Nayuta Kagura]], the "action" will be... projected on the gym's screen. [[CovertPervert Nayuta doesn't stop it.]]
* ''VideoGame/CrusaderKingsII'' has an event during feast event chains where one of your guests gets, uh, overexcited and bangs a serving girl in full view of the party. Depending on various factors your character may be embarrassed by this, or possibly impressed by the male participant's virility.
* In ''Videogame/{{Rimworld}}'', colonists assigned to do jobs during sleeping hours will cheerfully walk into bedrooms while couples are right in the middle of "lovin'" to lay down flooring, sweep up dirt, or fix wiring without anyone batting an eye.

* Averted or lampshaded in'' WebComic/{{Collar 6}}. ''Michael and Evita Kappel are busy having GladToBeAliveSex after a few years of being apart when a female servant walks in on them. Michael casually remarks, "I could have sworn I locked that door..." In the next scene, however, they're fully dressed and chatting with their servant about the message she was delivering to them.
* In ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFOXHOUND'', President Solidus gets a call from Ocelot at the same time as he's getting something else, too.
* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' is occasionally prone to this trope, being a sex comedy about a lot of people with little shame and weird priorities. See the comic's own page for examples.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Belkar is awesome enough that he doesn't need to stop making out with someone [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0611.html just to stab someone else.]]
* From ''Webcomic/PicturesForSadChildren'': [[http://picturesforsadchildren.com/index.php?comicID=183 "I'm Ben Franklin and I'm giving it to a French lady, this is what i do."]]
* Referenced in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' where Faye's little sister was caught during cunnilingus with her girlfriend by their mother, who didn't know she was a lesbian. One of the other characters [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=165 comments]] that she might as well have finished off as it couldn't possibly have been any worse an outcome if she had.
* In ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'', Chanelle conducts a 'phone conversation with Amber and surfs the Web to find the latter some possible dates while at work ... as a porn actress. This makes her a non-villainous example, though with whatever moral ambiguity might attach to her job; actually, she generally seems nice enough, if very uninhibited.
* In ''Webcomic/ThinkBeforeYouThink'', Julia walks in on Becky and Jason in her dorm room while they're [[http://thinkbeforeyouthink.net/?comic=20130111-too-weird getting undressed]]. Becky reacts nonchalantly to the interruption.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'', a solid week of this can stave off the apocalypse through the power of [[http://oglaf.com/ron-returns/ awkwardness]].
* In one subscriber-only story of ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'' Mel'arnach goes to see her teacher ([[TeacherStudentRomance and future lover]]) Snadhya'rune in her office and finds her being "serviced" by two female students, and without missing a beat Snadhya greets Mel and tries to strike up a conversation before Mel runs off in embarrassment. According to Snadhya's "sister" Khaless this is a regular occurrence and a way for students to earn favors.
* ''Webcomic/GuildedAge'': To be fair, both Payet and Frigg should know better than to do it ''in the middle'' of a rescue mission, as pointed down by Byron.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Dreadlord]] [[AxCrazy Leraje]] of the [[TheLegionsOfHell Northern Horde]] doesn't stop having sex with a female slave even when his lieutenant [[AntiVillain Nobuo]] arrives to deliver a report. He has casual conversation with Nobuo while keeping up the act, and he even devours the slave in front of Nobuo at the end of the briefing, going so far as to offer him a taste of her flesh. Nobuo keeps his cool, albeit barely.
* In ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'', Marybeth Witherspoon walks in on Maxwell Lombardi and Clio Gabriella in the middle of coitus. The two killers among the highest ranked in V4 at that time waste no time in [[spoiler: pumping her full of bullets.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', it appears that the major problem that caused Lana to break up with Archer was his habit of accepting phone calls from his mother during sex, without even pausing the act.
-->'''Archer''': "It's OK, I can do both".
** Or receiving oral from submerged hookers in a hot tub while talking to his mother.
* Invoked in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' where Stan baits Steve into watching him have sex with Francine, in order to [[ItMakesSenseInContext reassert his dominance]].
