->''"It may interest you to know, fräulein, that the carrot and the cucumber are both very powerful sexuality symbols. They represent the masculine phallic member. And you are vishing either to chop it up or to pickle it!"''
-->-- '''Sigmund Freud''', according to ''Literature/MyUncleOswald''

"Paging Dr. Freud..."

The truth is that AllMenArePerverts and AllWomenAreLustful, but they are too ashamed of it. Thus, they express it in covert sexual symbolism and repressed desire everywhere, every time, with everybody. Not only is [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory everyone Jesus in purgatory]] -- '''everything is about sex'''.

When any kind of long thin shape is a symbolic penis, or any hole that is oval is a symbolic vagina, you've got Freud Was Right in play. Obsession with sex is one of the core aspects of this trope, and is frequently {{lampshade|Hanging}}d.

The TropeNamer is Dr. UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud, a Viennese doctor who proposed a theory of human behavior and development based on the idea that all our behaviours are ultimately expressions of instinctual, biological desires. Like, for instance, sex.

Some say Freud was right about [[EveryoneIsBi something else]], too. Not to be confused with AllPsychologyIsFreudian and EverybodyHasLotsOfSex. Frequently leads to DoubleEntendre and AccidentalInnuendo.
