Erotic Eating
It's just a banana.note 

"You women be careful when you're standing in front of that Häagen-Dazs, because God damn it, we're watching — and God damn it, we're thinking."

When a character (usually female, but not always) eats something really slowly and suggestively, as a phallic or yonic metaphor, or moves it in and out of her mouth in the same way. Bonus points for drips on mouth and/or chest.

Common items are:
  • Bananas.
  • Sausages or hot dogs.
  • Long, thin sweets or pastries (i.e. chocolate fingers, éclairs, or candy bars).
  • Frozen desserts (especially popsicles and vanilla ice cream).
  • Lollipops, which are part of the Sexy Schoolwoman trope.
  • Peaches.
  • Strawberries.
  • Cherries: not just popping them, but tying the stems shows...considerable talent.
  • Oysters.
  • Jello pudding cups (particularly when eaten without the spoon).
  • Drinking through a straw.
  • Anything covered in whipped cream, honey, jam, or melted cheese.
  • Chocolate in general. note 
  • And of course, any food or drink that can easily be spilled onto a shirt.

Specific type of Visual Innuendo; in some carefully crafted situations may end up being the visual equivalent of Innocent Innuendo. Not to be confused with Blessed with Suck, however much you want it to be. A common subversion is biting down hard at the end. Contrast with Food Porn where the food itself is the object of desire. Not to be confused with what happens when the turn-on is what happens afterward. And especially not to be confused with vorarephilia.

No Real Life Examples, Please! Keep those dirty little secrets to yourselves, okay?


Examples

    Advertising 
  • Basically every chocolate commercial has a woman orgasming in it.
  • Häagen-Dazs had adverts which featured women (and men) having an orgasm while eating their ice cream.
  • Just about every commercial there has ever been for Cadbury's Flake, a stick-shaped chocolate bar, has shown a woman slowly peeling back the wrapper, biting off a chunk, closing her eyes and going into blissful raptures. They weren't allowed to be broadcast before the watershed.
    • Bill Bailey parodies this in a stage show, involving the Flake jingle and some footage of animals copulating.
  • All Magnum ice cream ads are this to varying degrees. They even have actors describing ice cream as if it was sex with the cream dripping off their lips...
  • The "girrrrrrthy" commercials that Ball Park Franks ran a while back.
  • Eliza Dushku's Hulu commercial. Enjoy.
  • An old commercial praised the ability of a girl who could unwrap a Starburst with her tongue.
  • A Diet Pepper Cherry commercial shows Fergie (of the Black Eyed Peas, not the British royal family) tying a cherry stem into a knot with her tongue. The kicker here is that Fergie had just drank a can of the soda, implying that it has so much cherry flavor it... er... well, has cherry stems, apparently.
  • Parodied in the Carl's Jr. commercial where a gorgeous girl in a bathing suit is shown soaping a car and herself while sensuously eating a giant hamburger. The ad was pulled after protests from Moral Guardians. Carl's Jr. later tried again with another beautiful girl, this time eating a chicken cranberry salad in bed and in her bath.
    • And again with this ad for Carl's Jr.'s "Big Sausage Breakfast".
  • Tums has a series of ads where food literally fights the would-be eater. It takes on a whole new meaning when the food is a mustard-slathered corn dog. His date covering her stuffed toy's eyes confirm the commercial's makers knew exactly what this looked like!
  • Several ads for York peppermint patties consist entirely of a hot girl nibbling her way through one; the camera jumps around her face while she makes suggestive expressions. One wonders exactly what "sensation" their tagline refers to.
  • There was a doozy of a Life Savers commercial in the late 60s-early 70s. A beautiful girl in a low-cut Southern Belle dress showed us her basket full of fruit, talking about how authentic the flavors in Life Savers candy are to the real thing. And as she held up each piece of fruit, a hole appeared in it. Including the cherry.
  • This Jerry's Subs & Pizza commercial has a sexy blonde suggestively eating a sub.

    Anime and Manga 
  • Excel Saga: The opening sequence has Hyatt eating a banana very suggestively.
  • Lesbian example from Mnemosyne: A woman orders a drink at a bar, but instead of sipping it normally, she dips two fingers into it and then licks the liquid off them.
  • In a chapter of You're Under Arrest!, Ken Nakajima is watching very interestedly what is implied is an AV, but the only scene we can see before he is interrupted and had to hide the "evidence" is a close-up of a cute girl licking an vanilla ice cream cone.
  • The Eiken anime did this in the second episode. One of the events in the school competition was to swallow a chocolate-covered banana, and the announcer noted that the Eiken Club member in the event obviously had experience doing this sort of thing... Not to mention the club president is rarely not seen eating food like bananas and sausages in very suggestible ways.
  • Miharu in the Girls Bravo anime did this, not to one banana, but to a fruit vendor's entire stock in quick succession, while he was telling a story about the experiences that inspired him to sell bananas. To multiple highly suggestive camera angles!
  • Loveless's Kio and his lollipop fixation. Lampshaded. At one point he offers to, er, demonstrate for Soubi. Who is also a guy.
  • In episode 6 of Kanokon, Nozomu eats a Candied Apple in an indecent fashion, complete with hentai-style drool. Chizuru does not take kindly to being upstaged, however, and it soon turns into an actual Erotic Eating Competition, with many types of carnival food being drafted for the festivities.
  • There are a pair of doujinshi of Neon Genesis Evangelion that play with this. The first one consists of Asuka laying on the floor with suspicious white stuff on her hands and face, she had just been in an ice cream eating contest... with Rei. The other is Asuka licking something rather... flesh-colored while kneeling in front of a very embarrassed and nervous Shinji. It's a Red Bean paste popsicle.
  • FLCL:
    • Episode 4 gives us Haruko and Naota's father eating eggs rather suggestively.
    • In Episode 5, while Naota is talking with his friends about how he saved the town in the previous episode, Ninamori can be seen looking unimpressed as she eats a popsicle in a suggestive manner. Takes a quick dip towards horrific when she stops sucking it and... chomp!
  • Judar from Magi - Labyrinth of Magic is formally introduced sitting in a tree eating peaches while the juice dribbles all over his face and bare chest.
  • Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae: In the first episode, Ai Enma licks a ''moist'' cherry in front of Hone Onna. She also places a cherry in her mouth and pushes it out with her tongue during the opening credits of the first season.
    • The way she eats wieners is also pretty impressive. One of those scenes is even in slow motion and with lots of FX.
  • Hayate the Combat Butler :
    • Nishisawa's consumption of a coated strawberry was gag-censored for being too suggestive.
    • Ayumu on at least one occasion, with a culpable popsicle.
  • Noir had Kirika doing the Les Yay version with ice cream at one point.
  • Manabi Straight also uses ice cream... this time it's Mutsuki with a popsicle.
  • Akikan!! plays the "drinking from a can" version for all it's worth.
  • Kanade and Yukino from Candy Boy do this using cake.
  • In the manga Futari Ecchi, this is how the just-married Yura is taught oral sex by her Good Bad Girl sister Rika, who uses a chocolate-covered banana.
  • The To Love-Ru manga has a disproportionate number of images of Mikan eating popsicles or licking ice cream cones.
  • Great Teacher Onizuka features original sketches on the inside cover pages of each tankobon (collected volume consisting of several chapters released weekly on Shonen Jump), and one was of Urumi nibbling on half of a Pocky as a very surprised Tomoko (I think) is eating the other end.
  • Shion Sonozaki from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni seems to get a little too much enjoyment from eating a popsicle while plotting her deceit and subsequent murder of the village chief and Keiichi.
  • Air Gear makes good use of this trope through a sweaty Ton-Chan and a popsicle. This is all after screaming in fear of rape.
  • Played straight in Azumanga Daioh with Sakaki and a popsicle.
  • Lucky Star: "I do a little push and pull action."
  • A scene in Boku No Pico is famous for this trope. Pico enjoys some ice cream in a....strange way...
  • Chocotto Sister has a scene wherein Choco eats a chocolate-coated banana, completely oblivious to the effect it has on Kakeru.
  • Kyou from CLANNAD when she was slowly sucking a lollipop.
  • Shin Koihime†Musou has a gratuitous scene with what happens to be a primitive form of glowstick in episode four.
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena: The sensual yet vicious manner with which Akio devours a flower in one of the later episodes tells you pretty much everything you need to know about his relationship to women and sex.
  • Death Note:
    • L does this constantly. He licks donuts, spoons, and his own fingers; he goes through strawberries and a banana; and once he ties a cherry stem with his tongue. The cast has more important things to do than notice any of this.
    • Misa does this too. Intentionally played, as well, since she was starring in a lipstick commercial that involved her biting the skin off a banana.
    • Not to mention Mello and his chocolate bars.
  • The boys of The Wallflower all get popsicles at one point.
  • Akari in Domina no Do! does it with a sausage.
  • The final Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei ED has Nozomu on a night on the town with his fellow teachers and shows Hot Teacher Chie eating a strawberry. There's also a manga chapter where Nozomu is eating a large sushi roll. Nami notices Yaoi Fangirl and doujin creator Harumi smirking and asks why. Harumi says that she doesn't plan to use it for future reference.
  • Junsui Adolescence has one instance of this. It involves Nanao licking cake from Matsumoto's finger.
  • Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu: In episode 3, whilst fleeing from Miharu's throwing forks and holding a plate with two bites of crepe on it, Yoshii runs into Kubo. The crepes end up all over his face, and Yoshii's face ends up in his crotch. Kubo gets up and says, "Yoshii... you've dirtied my face," before licking up some of the cream.
  • Anemone of Eureka Seven and strawberry jam. Which may or may not actually be blood.
  • Kanna from Koe de Oshigoto! is encouraged to try this with various foods, including a banana, to improve her technique (she's an eroge seiyuu, who are expected to provide their own sound effects, among other things). This fails completely and is shown as a throwaway gag, rather than used for fan service. The finger sucking on the other hand goes way beyond Does This Remind You of Anything? territory.
  • Dead Leaves kicks off with Pandy sucking furiously on a hot dog... for no apparent reason.
  • Bleach has Orihime eating a hot dog rather... oddly during the X-Cution arc.
    • Rangiku's enthusiastically licking a popsicle during the Beach Episode.
  • Manga/07Ghost: Those candy things Castor gives Teito and Razette in episode 4.
  • Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai has the lollipops in episode 6, which actually represents what they look like. Momoyo evens lectures the other heroines on how to "eat" the lollipop, while lots of guys watch them as if they could actually feel it themselves. Then she tells them to take a bite off. All the guys immediately collapse in pain. A little later, Fushikawa tries to pull off the exact same thing. She succeeds just as spectacularly.
  • While it doesn't actually show up in Steins;Gate, it gets referenced.
    Makise: I'm going to eat this banana.
    Hashida: Can you say that again...but sort of whisper it?
  • Daily Life with Monster Girl has Papi eating Kimihito's popsicle. Since she dropped her icecream cone, she insists that he should hold it with obvious results. Onlookers assumes he's being a perv who's doing it on purpose.
  • Subverted in Kyo no Asuka Show. Asuka wants to buy a popsicle, but forgot her wallet. The vendor offers her one free if she can eat it in three minutes. A moment for a bystander to imagine this passes, only for Asuka to decline, recognizing where that would lead. She was tempted to anyway, but her good judgement kicked in and, besides, she much prefers to chomp into popsicles. The vendor then gives her one, no strings attached.

    Comic Books 

    Fan Fiction 
  • A common request on the Phoenix Wright Kink Meme, usually involving popsicles, though it was horribly subverted for laughs in at least one instance.
  • This Gargoyles fan art shows Angela's first experience with ice cream.
  • Star Trek: The Original Series Kink Meme:
  • Kingdom Hearts II: Axel. Roxas. Sea salt ice cream. If something combining all of these things doesn't appear here, then Yaoi Fangirls aren't doing their job. Or are... otherwise occupied.
  • In the Power Rangers epic "Of Love and Bunnies", an order of fries drops down Kim (the original Pink Ranger)'s bra after Tommy (her ex-boyfriend and former White Ranger), driving the jeep they're in, hits a pothole. Tommy finds he can see down her shirt through the rear-view mirror and starts swerving off the road. Kim realizes this and starts eating the fries as suggestively as possible and making a few... choice comments.
    • From another Power Rangers fic, albeit an original one named Power Rangers GPX, the Yellow Ranger Maria Aparicio eats a chocolate cake so suggestively it's almost an homage to When Harry Met Sally. In her justification, however, it is stated to be some damn good cake.
  • One The X-Files fanfic features Mulder daydreaming to kill time during an insanely boring meeting. It works...until he sees Scully munching on a banana. His daydreams get to the point of needing cold water.
  • Aimo's Dragon Age fan comic "Wonderland" here, (though you need a DeviantArt registration to see it) uses peaches, hard candy, milkshakes, cotton candy, and various things with cherries as a hilarious multifaceted metaphor for cunnilingus. Some of her other fan comics feature erotic eating as well, including "Strawberries and Cream" (of course) and "Curiousity" [sic].
  • Weightless: After Kaidan's death, Shepard isolated and starved herself in her cabin, Garrus tried to get her to eat some chocolate. When she finally ate them, she did it while laying on her bed, completed with moaning and fingers-licking. Thanks to it, Garrus, who've been carrying the flame for her for months, kinda lost control and things went downhill from there (not in a good way).
  • Small Problems: After Steven and Amethyst are left alone in the house, they start eating pancakes together. When there's only a few bites left, this trope ensues and eventually, so does G-Rated Sex.

    Film 
  • Nine And A Half Weeks is the modern Trope Codifier, whose eating scene has become a Meme, spawning many tributes and parodies (notably in Hot Shots!).
  • One character in Horrible Bosses seduces another by eating a popsicle, a banana, and a hot dog. In that order.
  • One scene in the film Tom Jones has Tom and a buxom woman consuming their dinner rather... suggestively to each other. Notably, this scene was lifted straight out of the original 18th-century novel. It's also parodied by a 1970s Dave Allen sketch, in which they're too busy throwing up afterwards to think about sex.
  • Parodied in Bananas as Woody Allen and a rebel girl eat together - he playfully tosses a piece of food to her, then gets a plateful of food in his face.
  • In A Fool There Was, the protagonist is about to eat some morsel, and The Vamp takes it from him, puts it in her mouth, and gestures for him to come and get it. The film cuts away just as he's leaning into her.
  • The horrific war film Come and See shows a female Nazi officer doing this while watching a massacre of Russian civilians.
  • Jawbreaker:
    • In a variation, where Rose McGowan suggestively asks her boyfriend to eat a popsicle, and mimics him. Yes, that way.
    • Earlier on, Marcie jokes that Liz's suffocation was caused by her "practicing" on the jawbreaker the girls choked her with.
  • In Dude Wheres My Car, the head alien "hot chick" promises the leads "oral pleasure" and demonstrates by swallowing a Popsicle whole. And according to the commentary it's not a trick; the actress can really do that.
  • Face/Off: Castor Troy has a fetish for peaches. To the point that when Sean Archer is surgically given Castor's face, the audio clip he is given to practice miming Castor's voice is a clip of Castor talking about how he could eat a peach for hours.
  • El Topo: This truly bizarre Mexican Western has a scene where eating fruit becomes a visual metaphor for lesbian sex.
  • Go Fish: In the cult lesbian movie, the love scene is intercut with a cooking scene. It works surprisingly well.
  • Career Opportunities: Jennifer Connelly plays a Hello, Nurse! character who must distract a group of armed robbers — she does so by eating a corndog. While riding a mechanical rocking horse.
  • Private Parts: The girl who took an entire sausage all the way in and out of her throat.
  • Howard Stern On Demand has "deep-throat contests" where girls see how far they can take a hot dog without gagging.
  • Forbidden Zone: In the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo's film, the Queen of the Sixth Dimension is eating a large Polish sausage, spearing the entire thing on her fork. As she's about to eat, her husband, King Fausto (played by Herve Villechaize) looks on, licking his lips suggestively. She puts the sausage down and gives him a withering look.
  • In A Clockwork Orange, the two girls Alex met in a record store were sucking on popsicles. Not just any popsicles, either; they're actually ... um ... anatomically correct popsicles.
  • Fast Times at Ridgemont High uses a carrot as an oral-sex-instruction prop.
  • Walk Hard: Dewey and Darlene do this with ice cream cones during the montage for the innuendo-laden Let's Duet.
  • The Dukes of Hazzard: Daisy Duke tries to distract some lawmen with some very suggestive (melting) ice cream eating in the direct-to-DVD sequel.
  • Lolita: The iconic poster for the 1962 version. In the 1997 movie, Lo erotically sucks on bananas in the car to distract Humbert from Quilty.
  • Tampopo, the Japanese "noodle western" combines this with some serious Fetish Fuel:
    • An egg being passed from mouth to mouth between lovers in one scene, for starters...
    • Then there's the scene where the Gangster licks honey from his girlfriend's lips, strongly suggesting he's licking a different body part. In fact, roughly a third of the movie is this trope.
  • A Night At The Roxbury: Subverted. While having a nice lunch party with Steve's intended in-laws (regardless of what he thinks about the matter) his fiancee, sex-crazed Emily Sanderson (who the film has spent a great deal of time trying to make the audience loathe) tries this on Steve. He does not have the reaction she was looking for.
  • Andy Warhol did a film consisting entirely of a drag queen eating a banana in a suggestive way. It can be seen here
  • Marvel Ann does this with a banana at the start of Psycho Beach Party at the cinema while flirting with a boy, he responds by doing this to an ice-cream sandwich, which turns into a mess. Fortunately she's still happy.
  • Good Luck Chuck has this movie poster.
  • Earth Girls Are Easy - alien Jim Carrey snags a cherry out of the bottom of a tall glass with his tongue, eliciting goggle-eyed takes from a few girls.
  • Boomerang: This film originally had cosmetics commercials that take trope beyond the target rating limits. There was reluctant Executive Meddling to tone it down.
  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show: While not directly part of the film, "Virgin sacrifices" usually involve bananas, whipped cream, cherries or chocolate sauce used in whatever silly, raunchy way the fellow leading it can devise.
  • Hot Shots!: Topper and Ramanda sit in front of an open refrigerator, eating. First there was a grape, after a while, a pizza slice, and then it gradually progressed to Topper using Ramanda's stomach as an over and cooked eggs and bacon. All the while, Ramanda looked like she was enjoying it. It gets better. At the end, he holds up two rashers of bacon at her suggestively. But she smiles coyly and lifts up two enormous steaks.
  • Superstar: Played straight and inverted. Howard suggestively rubs oranges on his chest while staring at Mary, urging her to eat her banana suggestively...she promptly squeezes and wrenches the banana apart.
  • From Women in Love, the fig.
    So it explodes, and you see through the fissure the scarlet. And the fig is finished, the year is over. That's how the fig dies, showing her crimson through the purple slit.

  • Learning this is a major part of Veronica Franco's training as a courtesan in Dangerous Beauty. Later on, when the wives of several prominent Venetians ask her why their husbands keep going back to her, this forms part of her answer.
  • Easy A gives us a scene with Olive (played by the gorgeous Emma Stone) milking her undeserved reputation as a slut for all it's worth. In a high school cafeteria.
  • A literal and unpleasant version happens in Killer Joe, with a chicken leg the title character puts in his crotch.
  • Mission: Impossible. In Ghost Protocol the female member of the IMF team has to Honey Trap an Indian playboy. She first gets his attention by staring at him while biting into a cherry.
  • In Other Peoples Money, when Kate allows Lawrence to feed her a cracker with mushroom dip, she leans forward (bear in mind that she's wearing a very low-cut dress), opens her mouth more than necessary, sticks her tongue out, and allows him to place the cracker on her tongue before she takes the entire morsel into her mouth. It's a very suggestive scene.

    Literature 
  • A recurring location in Sebastian by Anne Bishop is a cafe sandwiched between houses of prostitution and serving mostly suggestively shaped entrees. A rather hilarious scene describes the title character's reaction to watching a girl dip a "Phallic Delight" in cheese sauce and lick the sauce off.
  • The Dresden Files:
    • In Turn Coat, a woman in the nightclub Zero is "doing a thing with her tongue and an ice cube that was ... distracting as hell."
    • In Proven Guilty, when Maeve (a faerie queen of Winter) is drinking lemonade through a straw, Harry hears crunching noises coming from her mouth and realizes the lemonade freezes when it passes her lips. Which makes Harry very glad he had already bluntly turned down her advances moments before.
  • Subverted in Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, with Anasthesia making "the least erotic show of eating a banana ever".
  • Discworld:
    • Parodied when the wizards' housekeeper is "daintily eating a banana, a feat which is quite hard to do."
    • Don't forget Nanny Ogg's cookbook, The Joye of Snacks, containing recipes which are blamed for all sorts of indecorous goings-on—all off-screen, so we never find out exactly what makes "Bananana Surprise" so surprising. The chocolate pudding, however, is shown to act like an Aphrodisiac, making 2/3 of the men that eat it very hot around the collar and desperate to run off for buckets of ice water (and the other 1/3 goes ramrod straight and completely rigid). The only one unaffected is the Big Eater, on account of it 'not touching the sides' in Granny Weatherwax's words.
      "Maids of Honor?" "Welllll... they starts off as Maids of Honor... but they ends up as Tarts."
  • Lolita The eponymous character, Lolita, who's real name is Delores, manages to seduce/distract/seriously mock her Stepfather by sucking on a banana.
  • Black Star Rising by Frederik Pohl takes a rather unusual approach to this trope. "Comrade, do you have a fascination with eating bananas, carrots, and juicy red sausages? Then comrade, you can be certain that to your work and study regimen we will be adding plenty of cold showers."
  • The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons. The protagonists Meet Cute when the man (a soldier on patrol) sees the woman eating an ice cream at a tram stop and is instantly smitten by her.
  • Older Than Feudalism: Herodotus' Histories book 2 contains a description of an affair in which the narrator (Lucius) gets very hot over the way she drinks wine, and says so. Then they...get on with it.
  • In Marya Hornbacher's memoir Wasted a woman with an eating disorder says that she's "making love to" an apple she's eating.
  • The day after the Princess Renn seduces Jerin in A Brother's Price she comes to the kitchen to watch him cook. He gives her a spoon dipped in maple syrup, and she licks it off, deliberately reminding him of last night.
    "It's sweet, but not as sweet as you."
  • Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions brings new meaning to Food Porn with a story about a planet where people were hungry all the time, and good food was hard to get. A "Prostifood" tricking on the street claimed to offer fresh vegetables and fruit for sale, but all she really had was stuff that tasted like coal. A porn flick started with a short of a woman eating an apple, and the "hard core" porn showed a family eating a turkey dinner, with the "Money Shot" showing them so stuffed that they threw half the food away. The perverts in the theater go berserk with approval.

    Live-Action TV 
  • The Daily Show: Stephen Colbert does this a lot. The most famous on-screen instance involves a banana, but there have also been cases with ice-cream, coffee and (repeatedly) pizza (which resulted in a Pizza Boy Special Delivery that did not go how you think it would).
    Jon Stewart: [watching Stephen eat Crazy Bread] Oh, that is disturbing!
  • Firefly: The un-aired original Pilot had Kaylee (Jewel Staite) eating a strawberry in such delight that her eyes roll back in their sockets. A toned down version was put into the later episode "Shindig". Lampshaded in the DVD commentary for the pilot.
  • Parodies of Nigella Lawson's cooking shows. Nigella herself just occasionally tastes things, while coincidentally being good-looking, but comedians tend to blow it out of proportion.
  • Bottom: Rik Mayall didn't even need an excuse to get pervy: "I could have been watching Sophie Grigson peeling a banana, or washing a cucumber..."
  • Married... with Children had a case where Al and his neighbor tried to rig a beauty contest for Kelly by being the judges. This fails when one of the other contestants unveils her talent entry, "Eating a banana."
  • iCarly: Bananas and ribs are the usual subjects. Spencer hides the banana he's eating under his blanket while "sleeping", and ribs is one of Sam's choice of meat.
    • In the iCarly episode iToe Fat Cakes Sam does some suggestive licking of a Canadian Fat Cake, and later, she puts the nozzle of the Fat Bag (creme injector) in her mouth, erm, suggestively.
  • In an episode of That's So Raven where Raven eats a 3-foot-long hot dog and Eddie comments how tight his pants are. The "joke" is supposed to be that he's eating so much junk food that he's gaining weight, but to anyone outside the show's intended demographic, it takes on a whole new meaning.
  • Tipping the Velvet: an early scene in the involves the heroine hand-feeding her eventual lesbian lover a raw oyster. There is exactly as little sub- in the text as you might imagine.
  • Sugar Rush: Les Yay: there are numerous close ups of Sugar eating hot dogs and the like extremely suggestively. It's not just in permanently horny Kim's mind!
  • Hell, watch the Anger Management episode of Zoey 101 and tell me that Lola eating the bowl of nuts doesn't fall under this trope.
  • The Gong Show:
    • There was an act on the original show called "Have You Got A Nickel?", much better and more appropriately known as "The Popsicle Twins". Two girls just sat on stage in shorts and t-shirts and suggestively sucked on Popsicles. The audience loved it; the judges, not so much. They weren't gonged because Jaye P. Morgan was the only judge that approved, and she physically prevented the other two from gonging it. She stated "That's how I got started in show biz!" It was apparently that was put in just to be censored, so that the censors would be distracted enough to let other real acts sneak by, and it was let through unexpectedly.
    • Also appeared in some manner on the new Gong Show, in which a lacklustre musical group had a Sexy Schoolwoman sucking on a lollipop whilst they performed (and indeed, the song included lines precisely to this effect such as "suck my lollipop, baby")
  • Oz. Simon Adebesi's prag is seen doing this with a banana during a party he's throwing in his Luxury Prison Suite.
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation: Deanna Troi shows us the proper way to finish off a chocolate sundae.
  • Star Trek: Voyager. Jeri Ryan (playing the Doctor inhabiting Seven's body) had an orgasmic response to eating a New York cheesecake, as 'he' has never tasted food before. Given that Jeri Ryan had to fit into her skintight catsuit week after week, the pleasure was undoubtedly not acted.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    • Bloodsucking is repeatedly used in this way throughout.
    • In the episode "Fool For Love", Drusilla (a vampire) sucks on Spike's bloodstained finger after he kills a Slayer. As Slayer blood is supposedly a powerful aphrodisiac, this might also qualify as foreplay.
    • In the least subtle example, Riley got sucked off (his wrist!) in a House of Vampiric Pleasures, with the camera angle and sound effects making it rather... confusing at first just where the sucking was taking place.
    • When Buffy meets up with Angel in the crossover episode "I Will Remember You" they are shown in bed after a make-out session with Buffy sensuously eating chocolate and licking split peanut butter off Angel's chest.
  • One episode of Frasier includes the title character eating a frozen treat with a friend of his, a girl he had a crush on in high school. He says to her, "There was a time when I'd have paid a thousand dollars to watch you eat a popsicle." Then she bites it off.
  • The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Cameron. Potato chips, and later, pancakes. When she's eating the pancakes, she's staring at Derek the whole time, and ends it with a pronounced swallowing. Keep in mind, this is the same episode that also ends with Derek watching Cameron do ballet, with a mixed look of awe and horror on his face.
  • Queer as Folk: One guess for the teaching tool used in for Oral Sex.
  • The Vicar of Dibley : Alice does this in "The Easter Bunny" with a stick of chocolate, causing Hugo to get impure thoughts.
  • Twin Peaks: Audrey Horne pops a cherry with the stem into her mouth, then takes out the knotted stem.
  • Laurie in That '70s Show dips her finger in Hyde's brownie batter and teases Kelso with "I really wish I could eat all this chocolate batter." As he tries to get it, she sucks it off her finger and says, "Guess I can!"
  • Misfits: The infamous "bottle scene". Actually, Visual Innuendo is a common feature of the show.
  • On LOST, Kate tasting chocolate for the first time in a month.

    • Drew and his ever-fattening girlfriend Nicki had a low-rent version of the infamous sexual eating scene from Nine And A Half Weeks.
  • 30 Rock: When Cerie gets engaged, Frank asks her if it'll "change the way you dress or eat lollipops". To his relief, she says it won't.
  • Inverted and parodied on the Saturday Night Live sketches featuring Kristen Wiig as a sexy redhead named Shana. On the first sketch (which appeared on the season 34 Christmas episode hosted by John Malkovich), she tries to eat a banana suggestively — and ends up gnawing at it like a dog with a raw steak. The second sketch (on the season 35 episode hosted by Charles Barkley) had Shana suggestively suck cream off the top of a mug of hot chocolate. She keeps coughing and spitting it out. The third (on the season 36 episode hosted by Bryan Cranston) had Shana trying to suggestively drink a protein shake, only to spit it back in the cup.
    • Played straight in this sketch from the season 30 episode hosted by Luke Wilson, in which two guys (played by Luke Wilson and one-season feature player Rob Riggle) on a double date with their girlfriends (Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph, who coincidentally starred with Luke Wilson in the film, Idiocracy) end up alienating their dates when their dares to taste what's on the appetizer platter devolves into a Ho Yay-laden Erotic Eating session.
  • When Red Hot Chili Peppers presented an award at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards, Anthony Kiedis ended the already Ho Yay-laden intro by eating a banana in a single bite.
  • Gossip Girls Serena van der Woodsen with some strawberries dipped in chocolate. On the jitney.
  • In the Chuck episode "Chuck Versus the Fear of Death," the current Greta and her Subway sandwich. Though it doesn't actually show her eating, the scene in question is, ahem, very suggestive.
  • Scrubs has an...interesting take on this, although Jordan doesn't seem to mind.
    • JD also gets an Amoral Attorney to lick off cupcake frosting off of her finger. She accidentally gets the potato salad.
  • Legend of the Seeker: Cara eating raw liver of the Shadrin she just killed, in "Princess".
  • Fresh Meat has an instance of this with Vod and a piece of celery, although this is more played as Squick.
  • One episode of Smallville, "Rush," has a scene in which Chloe Sullivan suggestively sucks on a lollipop.
  • Game of Thrones: Subverted at the end of Season 3; Ramsay Snow eats a sausage in a decidedly suggestive manner, but there is nothing erotic about it for two reasons: 1) The eater is not exactly unattractive, but is extremely creepy-looking, and 2) the man he's eating in front of had his penis and/or his testicles cut off in a previous episode by the eater, making it yet another round of psychological torture.
    • In "The Lion and the Rose," Prince Oberyn Martell and Ser Loras Tyrell sensually chew on food to signal their sexual interest towards each other.

    Music 
  • The video for "Angel in Disguise," a 1984 country No. 1 hit for Earl Thomas Conley. Near the end of the video, several exotic models are seen eating various food items usually, fruit in an erotic manner, with a focus also on Conley's reaction.
  • Escape The Fate's "Situations" video. Actually, the whole thing's really three minutes and thirty-two seconds of Fanservice, but one digresses.
  • German punk rock-and-misc band "Die Ärzte" dedicated an entire song — "Die Banane" — to the plight of a man who loses his composure and ruins a romantic dinner when his date decides to have a banana for dessert.
  • There was that Pussycat Dolls music video with one of the girls not just eating an ice cream cone suggestively, but rubbing it all over her face.
  • The song "Hot Dog (watch me eat)" by the Detroit Cobras is entirely about this, and not even subtly either!
  • The entire premise of Alizee's "Gourmandises" ("delicacy" in French). Complete with close-ups.
  • The insert for Gackt's "Vanilla" is a young woman letting a vanilla ice cream cone drip onto her nearly uncovered breasts.
  • The video for Groove Coverage's "7 Years & 50 Days", which takes it to weird levels.
  • Played spectacularly, hilariously straight (well, kinda) in the Bloodhound Gang's video for "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo." Ditto the cover of Use Your Fingers.
  • "Annie aime les sucettes", written by songwriter and professional lech Serge Gainsbourg for 18-year-old France Gall in 1966. It's about a girl who likes lollipops and, of course, the lyrics are laced with double entendres. Gall famously didn't understand the song's second meaning and sang it innocently. Only after Les Sucettes caused a scandal did she realize what she had sung.
  • The music video of "That's Good" by Devo has a scene described as "a french fry fucking a doughnut"
  • The music video for the Wet Spots' song "Labia Limbo" consists almost entirely of this, without the smallest trace of subtlety, either.
  • The music video for INXS's "The One Thing" also features lots and lots of (messy but) suggestive eating, including some rather memorable scenes with a woman eating a fig.
  • The music video for "Melodies" by GAM has a rather long sequence where the two girl feeding each other breakfast which is made to look really sexy although it doesn't include any of the foods usually associated with this trope.
  • In the remixed video for "Look Right Through" by Storm Queen, a gorgeous redhead seduces the main character by taking the cherry off her milkshake and eating it with relish.
    • Kelis does almost exactly the same thing in "Milkshake".
  • "Kolacyja" (The Supper) by a Polish group Pudelsi is a song about people consuming various foods, with extremely suggestive depictions.

    Standup Comedy 
  • As seen in the page quote by George Carlin, combined with Male Gaze and All Men Are Perverts.
    Carlin: As long as I'm being a complete pig up here, let me ask you guys a question. Are you ever able to watch a woman eating a banana and NOT think about a blowjob? I can't do it. And I know why: I'm a sick, evil fuck! I admit that! I can't do it! Eating a banana, eating a pickle, licking on an ice cream cone. I'm thinking to myself "LOOK AT THE TONGUE ON HER! WOW!" So ladies, be careful when you're standing out in front of that Häagen-Dazs. 'Cause God damn it, we're watching. And God damn it, we're thinking!

    Theatre 
  • Dangerous Beauty: In the musical adaptation of the film, when courtesan Veronica is asked how she manages to capture the hearts and loins of every husband in Venice, she picks up a banana, deep-throats it, and then pulls it out whole. Then she spouts some crap about education and how men admire powerful women, but screw that, it's clear which way the wind is ahem blowing.

    Video Games 

    Web Comics 

    Web Original 
  • This strip of Surviving the World is a pretty obvious example.
    • And that was the toned-down version!
  • Played for laughs in this reading of Fifty Shades of Grey.
  • That Guy with the Glasses:
    • Doug Walker worked his way around a (bacon) lollipop while making his usual blowjob jokes in "Brad Tries... Pizza Beer". You're welcome.
      • He also had his (gleefully lampshaded) turn with a banana in the pre-Donation Drive video.
    • While we don't see it, one of The Nostalgia Critic's fetishes is eating whipped cream off a gorgeous woman.
    • In the team review of Dragonball Evolution , Lord Kat uses strawberries to invoke this trope with horrifying results.
      RolloT: (while trying to cut his neck with his pass) Can't UNSEE!
    • This pretty much became a running gag for Lord Kat; his final appearance on the show was a cameo in their The Last Airbender review where he appears shirtless and holding a banana, only to have Y Ruler of Time slam the door in his face.
    • In this (at 10:30) travel v-log, Benzaie does this to Linkara with the help of some special effects.
    • Todd in the Shadows, in his review of the song "Carry Out", ate fast food very suggestively indeed. He ended up accidentally smearing himself with mayonnaise.
      • Since it was a sex song about food (or a food song about sex), he brought up that Americans are now so fat that even our sex songs are about food—and not even sexy food.
    • In Demo Reel, Donnie DuPre fondled and sucked pocky sticks while asking for Slash Fic. Freud Was Right doesn't even cover it.
  • In I Am Not Infected Hartley gets Amanda a popsicle, which she proceeds to eat in the most suggestive way possible. How he thought this would help their uncomfortable situation is unclear, but no one ever accused Hartley of making any brilliant plans.
  • Gaia Online has several examples.
    • Nicolae's oral fixation is the most obvious.
    • Two of the Valentines given out during the Valentine's Day '09 event have characters holding hot dogs, clearly about to engage in this trope.
    • Even the back-to-school event is not exempt from this. Behold, the discussion about bullying and humiliation.
      Gino Gambino: I went to a private boarding school, so we all had to change into our pajamas in the dormitories. All the other boys used to make fun of my sunken chest. One time they held me down and took turns eating soup out of it. How did I deal with it? Oh, mostly by crying, I guess.
      Various fangirls: ... That's kind of kinky.
    • The Von Helson sisters participated in the Pie Hard pie-eating contest event. The image used for successfully feeding the twins pie was an obvious manip of the twins' seduction from '07, with the addition of... suggestive splatters of pie filling.
    • There was a Running Gag for a while during announcements for new items, where one of the avatars would be holding the hotdog item or the image of it would be sneaked in some other way, in a clear reference to this trope. It later got officially referenced outside the item announcements with the Valentines' example above.
  • Tales of MU: The first book has Puddy grabbing a donut specifically for the lesbian version.
  • The short film Filthy Food, with not the smallest trace of shame or subtlety.
  • Somehow played straight with the Massive Meat Log episode of Epic Meal Time.
  • Often time, YouTube fanvids of works of other media will invoke and/or parody this when taking clips of characters eating out of context and/or looping them, such as this looped clip of Applejack eating a s'more, for example.

    Western Animation 
  • Used in The Boondocks in the episode "Guess Hoe's Coming to Dinner", when Cristal suggestively licks whipped cream off her fingers while moaning, then whispers "It's edible."
  • Parodied in Metalocalypse, where Murderface explains this as why he refuses to eat sausages, bananas and other similarly shaped food items. He'll also refuse to eat them if they are sliced, because of the castration metaphore.
    • Later in the episode, when the band is hiding in a dark closet, the lights are turned on to reveal Murderface sucking on a sausage.
  • Parodied/Lampshaded in Family Guy when Death sticks a whole chicken leg down his throat and sucks the meat off the bone, explaining this "talent" by saying "...I did some films in college I'm not particularly proud of..."
    • Played with/parodied in a recent episode. Stewie chastises Lois for not slicing his banana: "What am I supposed to do, just stick it in my mouth —well, hello!"
    • A parody of the 9 1/2 Weeks scene, where Lois sensuously feeds Peter a strawberry, and he responds by shoving a huge watermelon slice into her face.
  • Also in American Dad!, when Roger claims he knows how to teach another character how to please her man then swallows a whole banana. When he notices people staring he hurridly explains that he wasn't making a point, he was just hungry...
    • Played for laughs when American Dad deconstructs this in "For Whom The Sleigh Bell Tolls. 2 women invoke this trope and one does better then the other, resulting in the later being offended.
  • Used as a Running Gag in an episode of Duckman. Each time the vice principal of Ajax's school takes a bite of her lunch, Duckman launches into a train-tunnel-themed Imagine Spot.
  • Spoofed in a Robot Chicken skit, in which a busty blonde is about to eat a corndog, but stops when she realizes that every guy in (and outside) the bar is watching her.
  • Somehow done in The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy where we get an extended scene of Irwin sucking a lemon to titillate Mandy (of course Mandy reacts with indifference).
    • Mandy also does this with a lollipop when trying to allure the one-time character "Piff"... you know, so she can crush him.
  • Both Kim Possible and Velma Dinkley did this with a serving of nachos, cramming the food into their mouths and swallowing the job lot barely chewed, throats bulging with effort. It was all innocent and an attempt to just be one of the guys, but certainly those scenes set some YouTubers looking for erotic screen captures.
  • Done on Chowder with Endive, who does this to lobster dipped in sauce and sucks on them. Unfortunantly, since this is Endive we're talking about its Fan Disservice.
  • The Simpsons:
    • Parodied when Grampa and Beatrice flirt by consuming pills in a suggestive manner. Which in itself is a parody of the famous scene in Tom Jones, above.
    • Also on the episode where Selma tries to find a man as per her Aunt Gladys's last request, during a date video taping, Selma chews on a (lit) cigarette and sticks out her tongue where the cigarette is now tied in knots (the only reason she can do that without feeling pain is revealed on season three's "Black Widower" where she told Sideshow Bob that a childhood accident where a bottle rocket went up her nose permanently destroyed her sense of taste and sense of smell.

      Then again, so does smoking for a long time, which also happened to Selma when she was a kid, according to the season two episode "Three Men and a Comic Book" in which Patty and Selma take up smoking after telling Marge that she can do their chores for them so she can raise money for an Easy Bake Oven
      .
    • And inverted into Fan Disservice on the Treehouse of Horror episode "Homer^3" (the one where Homer is stuck in a 3D world after trying to hide from Patty and Selma). Patty and Selma find out that they can suck the many-days-dead conches and hermit crabs out of their shells to clean their seashell collection.
    • After eating dinner, Marge and Ned Flanders both eat strawberries dipped in whipped cream more erotically in "The Devil Wears Nada". Even the promotional artwork for the episode shows this.
    • "The Sweetest Apu": At the Kwik E Mart, Apu tries to break up with the squishee lady until she eats a licorice and spells "Do Me" out when taking it out of her mouth.
  • Clone High: Joan of Arc disguises herself as a boy to be on the school basketball team. Cleo attempts to seduce her with Erotic Eating, unaware of who she really is, by using a banana and some milk.
  • Spongebob Squarepants:
    • The way Spongebob ate his chocolate bar to piss Patrick off.
    • And the way Patrick licks a popsicle while investigating the Clamu incident.
    • The episode "Valentine's Day", when at the end, Patrick bites into a giant chocolate balloon and it explodes, covering the entire area in gooey chocolatey goodness.
  • Done in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic of all places, when Big Macintosh and Cheerilee are deeply in love thanks to a love potion. The two are holding a cherry in their teeth and almost popping it, while a group of ponies watch in shock and disgust.
