This seems to be how cutebolds (think they) reproduce.
"I'm gonna fill your hoo-ha with goof juice!"
Frequently in games and TV shows aimed at children, as well as in movies and TV shows in which some of the characters are
children, there's a need for sex to occur without anyone ever actually having
sex. Usually this is because breeding is a large part of the game, a character wants a baby, or it's a Very Special Episode
where the writers are Getting Crap Past the Radar
with an Unusual Euphemism
Especially prevalent in Simulation Games
. Compare with G-Rated Drug
. Often involves the Delivery Stork
. If two species are involved, we might have Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action

- Power Girl has had G-Rated Sex twice, the first time with the alien Sean Connery character known as Vartox. This sex impregnated all the women, and men, of Vartox's groovy 1970's cultured homeworld. The act consisted only of touching a floating ball of energy simultaneously. Power Girl later participated in some kind of emotion sharing ritual with her best friend Atlee while they both wear skimpy bathing suits. Power Girl specifically compares it to her experience with Vartox and finds it weirder. While Vartox was played entirely for laughs, the sequence with Atlee was very sweet.
- ElfQuest depicts what is implied to be group sex as everyone dancing, naked. They send the children away beforehand, that's how we know that they're not just dancing.
- The Xanth books make a Running Gag out of the notion of "summoning the stork" as a euphemism for sex. Also, instead of a sex scene, one book has a literal ellipsis appear in the characters' bedroom. This is, after all, Xanth.
- In The Last Dragon Chronicles, by Chris D'Lacey, it is possible for descendants of Gwendolyn to "quicken" (become pregnant) when thinking about motherhood or the ones they love, which typically results in human babies born from clay eggs. In one case, however, a bit of magic results in a dragon baby being born in such a fashion. It Makes Sense in Context.
- Similarly, in the third book in the series, Firestar, it's revealed that Zanna is pregnant with David's baby. Since this is a children's book series, no direct reference to them having sex is ever mentioned. However, this is actually a bit of Crap Gotten Past The Radar—early in the book, around the time said baby would logically have been conceived, it's mentioned that the two characters "spent the night keeping each other warm," said with a knowing leer.
- The Awakening has sex scenes so G-rated that students forced to read the book tend to completely miss them. The great irony of this is that when it was written the book was so raunchy it almost wasn't published.
- The third book of The Hunger Games has this between Katniss and Peeta. The act is alluded to and then skips forward to a conversation afterwards.
- Warrior Cats has some. Beyond all of the characters that have been born to the various Official Couples throughout the series (one litter being both implied and confirmed by Word of God to be the result of a one-night stand), the most blatant scene was in Bluestar's Prophecy, provoking many thoughts of "how did they get away with this?". Oakheart asks Bluestar to meet him somewhere at night, saying he wants to get to know her better. After a romantic evening, Bluestar starts begging to let herself enjoy "Just one night!". Next thing you know, Oakheart is building them a nest, and the next chapter skips right to the next morning. Soon after, Bluestar is pregnant.
- Before Jacqueline Wilson became famous with The Story of Tracy Beaker and began to focus on writing for children rather than teens, several of her novels would describe the heroine and her boyfriend hanging out together and then later explain that sex had occurred during the scene; the reader just wasn't told about it.
- In the original novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Perdita's storyline requires her to have had her puppies after knowing their father for hours at the longest. (Pongo's wife is named Missis in the book; Perdita is an entirely different Dalmatian.) The sex apparently consists of them running off into the woods, professing their love for each other, and negotiating their wedding. Shortly thereafter, Perdita tromps out of the woods, pregnant.

- In Hindu Mythology, Hanuman could do this, one of them is that he could impregnate woman just by singing while the other is when someone catches Hanuman's sweat, thus Makaradhvaja is born. The former was a task for Hanuman, while the second one was a complete accident. Both of them which Celibate Hero Hanuman sorta panicked on.
- Apparently, it is commonly believed in India that Peacocks are asexual and the female "gets pregnant" by drinking the males tear. This belief is not only incorrect, but ironic, because the birds are actually quite promiscuous. The entire reason the male bird fans his feathers is because he's trying to attract mates. Also, technicality, birds do not "get pregnant."
- Ms. Pac-Man features a cut-scene titled The Chase in which Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man chase each other across the screen amidst cartoon hearts. In the following cutscene, a stork flies by and drops off Baby Pac-Man.
- Virtual Villagers: Dragging and dropping one villager of the appropriate age and gender on to another results in a kiss effect, the couple "going indoors" and coming out with a baby. Aww. Later episodes of the game feature a "love shack" hut, decorated with flowers.
- Related game Virtual Family (same publisher and uses a lot of the same backstory, but modern day) has the parents literally jump up and down on a bed together, fully clothed, then look around expectantly. If it works, be baby appears out of thin air.
- In My Tribe two of your villagers walking into a hut with the status message "calling the stork". A few seconds later- a baby toddles out.
- Many people in the Neverwinter Nights module creating community get around the fact that the game isn't programmed to have visual sex encounters by creating a bubble of darkness around two characters. Though the dialogue in most of these cases is at least PG-13 rated.
- The player's kiss with Bastila in Knights of the Old Republic is demonstrated by dialogue and a black-out.
- Zoo Tycoon 2: Animals simply adopt a snoozing posture simultaneously (even from across the exhibit) in order to mate, as if literally "sleeping together".
- Creatures: That "mmmmmmmm-pop" sound means your creatures have just had non-graphic sex by standing next to each other. The official term for this is "Kisspopping". (Normal kissing noises just mean they like each other and will probably continue to make out until they starve if you don't separate them.)
- The original The Sims required only a sufficient number of passionate kisses to provoke the arrival of the baby bassinet. Later expansion packs introduced the Heart Bed, which could be used to "play in bed", which would also create a baby. In Sims 2 and 3, this gets averted as Sims have sex in all but name - they "Woo Hoo" instead. Complete with comedic sound effects ranging from giggling to meowing to content moaning. In Sims 2, they could even Woo Hoo in the car or a changing booth. Later expansions introduce hot tubs, hammocks, tents and an elevator. Sims 3 allows you to Woo Hoo or Try For Baby while touring City Hall.
- In Black & White, a Breeder Disciple will give a full body kiss to another villager to have sex with them. Most of the time they would go indoors after such embrace and then a child would walk out afterwards.
- Is it worth mentioning that any villager hugged by your creature would become a breeder on the spot?
- That's because you would have taught your creature how to make such Disciples. Your creature is just doing what you do: placing a male next to a female to create the class.
- Viva Pinata: The Pinatas do a crazy dance inside their house that summons a stork superhero woman who delivers the egg. Every species of pińata has their own dance and music style.
- In Spore, creatures mate by dancing, accompanied by either romantic string music or a cheesy saxophone riff.
- Chao in the Sonic Adventure series indicate their fertility by sitting in a circle of flowers. They do a Happy Dance to some music, then a Chao egg pops into existence between them.
- Pokémon eggs appear mysteriously when you leave them at the Daycare Center. For some odd reason, no one in the world, not even for scientific reasons, has watched Pokémon reproduce and as such have no idea where all these eggs come from. Either that or the Daycare Couple doesn't want to explain the stuff to a roughly 10-year-old boy/girl. It's implied no one has seen it happen because Pokémon can't breed if someone watches. Meaning, people have tried to watch/study but it doesn't work out. Most Pokémon, after all, have near-human-level intelligence, as well as sentience. Strangely enough, Pokémon eggs were first discovered by Prof. Elm in Generation II - three years after the start of the series - and baby Pokémon such as Pichu and Cleffa weren't even known until some time in between the two generations. This was retconned in the remakes of Generations I and II, due to the existence of breeding in the Generation I remakes.
- Harvest Moon
- In most games, the player simply has to keep their spouse's Heart Meter maxed out for a specified length of time (usually 60 days after marriage, not necessarily consecutive) to result in pregnancy. Even when the female involved is the player's character. (A Wonderful Life doesn't even go that far. Once you get married, the story jumps ahead three years, and you've already got a kid.)
- The spinoff, Rune Factory takes this trope and runs with it. Once you're married for 150 days - you'll wake up and your wife is holding a baby. No time skip, no "You're Pregnant" cutscene, just "Boom. Baby."
- Rune Factory 2 has a baby born after just 15 days. This is probably because the first generation is pretty much "level up, make babies and get onto the second generation" time.
- In Animal Parade, you're actually asked if you want kids. In other words, you plan to have kids. Your spouse actually makes remarks about "having your work cut out for you".
- Magical Melody: You can only have a baby if you keep up the Heart Meter, but one of the requirements to be married is having a double bed in the house. If you try to put in a single bed after the wedding, your spouse says something like "We are married, after all". You get one cutscene in which you find out that you're pregnant and one in which you have the baby (with all of your clothes on... somehow). Interestingly, if you're playing as a female character, you lose health a little more quickly while pregnant.
- There is also the Miracle Potion, also known as the "Ushi no Tane"* in Japanese which gets your animals pregnant.
- A Wonderful Life, for some reason, still keeps up the pretense of the Miracle Potion in the English version, despite the fact that a bull (either your own or on loan from elsewhere) is required for it to work. The cutscene that comes with using the potion, while it doesn't show what happens, does show both cow and bull looking very happy once it's over.
- Strangely, in several Harvest Moon games, hens' eggs can hatch even when there are no male chickens around.
- In Dragon Quest Monsters, when you select two monsters to mate (any two monsters) they go back to the Mystical Room of Breeding, look at each other...and then an egg appears, and the monsters are gone... Later games treat this as a Fusion Dance instead, explaining not only where the "parents" go but also allowing for "neutral" monsters that can breed with either "gender".
- Baldies was a RTS game where you built armies of fat, bald men. They reproduced by bouncing on a bed.
- Terra's parents in Final Fantasy VI do a sparkly dance and create a baby when those sparkles fuse together. This was (hopefully) meant as a metaphor, not to be taken literally. Some espers have Bizarre Alien Biology; who's to say, really, what those 16-bit sprites are doing when off screen? (That being said, Madeline is lucky that she was with vaguely-humanoid Maduin and not, say, Bismarck the freaking whale)
- In Final Fantasy X at a particularly emotional part of the game, Tidus and Yuna go for a moonlit swim together. Fully clothed, but the scene is slow, with romantic music playing, them kissing and touching, and ends with both of them looking spent and messy-haired. Yuna is embarrassed and asks Tidus to return to the group first...
- In SimLife, mating between creatures is indicated by a sexy female voice going "ooh-la-la".
- In Dwarf Fortress, a female creature can become pregnant if a male creature of the same species stands next to them and both are of compatible orientation. The same goes for a married male and female dwarf. In previous versions, pregnancy could occur anytime they were on the same map, even if both were in cages, which lead to jokes that they reproduced using spores.
- In the NiGHTS series, Nightopians come together and an egg drops. And as for Mepians (Nightmaren/Nightopian hybrids), they're made by knocking a 3rd-level Nightmaren in the form of a ball into a Nightopian.
- Startopia has a G-Rated brothel, in the form of the Love Nest. Here Dahnese Sirens, the attractive Winged Humanoids the player can put on staff, give "love" to visiting aliens from big, heart-shaped thrones, by hovering in the air and sprinkling glowy hearts on them. There's also the Oroflex, a rare and expensive tentacly thing in a carnival tent that picks up aliens, moves around like a thrill ride, and spits them back out. This affects the "love" and "fun" meters, so it's like tentacle rape plus the tilt-a-whirl.
- In Populous, two people would walk into a house, and three people would come out. (So if someone else goes inside, will the house be empty?)
- In the artificial life simulator Darwin Pond, swimmers are ready to mate when their beak gets long and thick, with a blob on the end indicating what colors they are looking for in a mate. If the resultant merry chase is successful, the pursuer touches the pursuee with is beak, causing a baby swimmer combining features from both parents to appear at the point of contact and rapidly grow to adult size. Compared to some examples on this page, this is practically critter porn.
- The old NES game Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode had a few parts in the first act, and one later on, where your character visits ladies staying over night at the local hotel and . . . well . . . the only real indication they're getting down and dirty is a third person peep into the room window. You and lady embrace, lights in room dim down to black and health is restored.
- In Petz, a large heart with congratulations on your petz' pregnancy pops up, hiding both of the animals in the process.
- Planescape: Torment has a G-rated brothel, run by a reformed succubus.
- It's not like there's any sex going on in there in any form... It's called the Brothel for Slaking Intellectual Lusts for a reason. Nice place to go if you want to, say, play chess or debate politics with someone, but the closest physical contact you'll be getting in there is being slapped by entering the 'abuse' room.
- There are some more conventional prostitutes wandering the streets of The Hive. The first time you talk to one Morte will loudly demand to be allowed to patronize her services, but since he's a floating animated skull he settles for her giving him a polish. (Disclaimer: not a metaphor).
- When using the sheep-breeding option in Farmville, the selected pair of sheep vanish into a curtained niche in their shelter, and are replaced in their enclosure with two message signs that read "Baa Chicka Baa Baa".
- Double Switch has one scene where Lyle and Elizabeth have sex. You don't actually see it, but it is strongly implied to have occurred between them.
- Birth in Minecraft consists of two animals running into each other until a baby animal spawns.
- In Overlord I, if you decorate enough of your evil castle in your Mistress's preferred style she takes you into her private quarters to give you some "strategy advice". Your camera gets stuck outside the door with some eves-dropping minions, but she sounds down-right orgasmic, and the castle does a lot of rocking and reeling. Overlord II manages to push this as far as possible while still having the camera stuck outside the room. And this time you have three mistresses, so if you have enough money to keep redecorating...
- In the third Arfenhouse game, Housemaster and Good Kitty are shown having "sex" by simply standing next to each other in bed.
- in the iOs game Pixel People, every few minutes a heart will appear over a house or other residential building. Selecting the building and holding down on the heart causes it to grow bigger and pop with a suggestive message like "WOO HOO" or "SWOON". Collect ten hearts and a stork brings a random bonus such as gold.
- In the Facebook game Birdland, you can breed the birds with a click of a button. The game shows the two birds cuddling as happy music plays, and an egg appears.
- Housemaster and Good Kitty's "sex" in Arfenhouse: The Movie, much like the game demonstrated above.
- The Nicktoon Aaahh!!! Real Monsters had the monsters reproduce via a dance.
- In one episode of Futurama, it's revealed that Kif's species can become pregnant by any direct skin-to-skin contact while they're experiencing deep feelings of love, even with species from entire other planets. Which, as Kif observes when he accidentally becomes pregnant in "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch", puts a whole new spin on the saying "No glove, no love."
- The Simpsons
- In "Treehouse of Horror IX", Maggie grows a single long, sharp tooth, and loses her arms and legs to be replaced by green tentacles. It is revealed that Marge was abducted and impregnated by Kang, the green-tentacled alien. Marge tells Homer what happened in a flashback. She was chosen for a cross-breeding program and told "To put you at ease, we have recreated the most common spawning locations of your species. You may choose either the back seat of a Camaro, an airplane bathroom, a friend's wedding, or the alley behind a porno theatre." Marge sits on a couch (she chooses the alley) with Kang, and he flashes a beam of light at her, and says "Insemination complete." Marge remarks that it was awfully quick; Kang asks what she's implying and she quickly says, "Nothing."
- In "Insane Clown Poppy", Krusty recalls meeting a beautiful female soldier at a USO show during The Gulf War. He persuades her to sleep with him, and they go offscreen. Cut to a view of the oil fields burning down like candles.
- Parodied in an episode of Drawn Together. Foxxy Love and Princess Clara kiss in the first episode, and in the next episode, Toot convinces Clara that she is pregnant because the only thing Disney princesses ever do with their man before they are seen with children is kiss.
- In a later episode, Pokémon expy Ling-Ling starts dating a female monster, who he "fights" on a regular basis. Near the end of the episode, they're both getting bored, and his partner suggests they spice things up by dropping the metaphor and actually having sex.
- Avatar: The Last Airbender: In "The Headband", Aang and Katara dance together, dipping in and out, gazing deep into each others eyes, getting very close, and ending the spectacle with both of them sweaty and panting, Aang holding Katara in his arms. The whole scene is just an "I need a fire-stick" away from being completely obvious.
- Phineas and Ferb had a very sneaky one in "Isabella and the Temple of Sap". In Isabella's daydream, Phineas transforms into a centaur and allows Isabella to ride him. Any girl who's ever ridden a horse knows how this is supposed to feel. Not to mention when she talks in that scene she sounds like she's in ecstasy, but that just might be because it's Phineas.
- Rocko's Modern Life: Ed and Bev, breaking plates with their tongues.
- And in one episode, Ed was chasing Bev around in a giant hamster ball.
- Hey Arnold! has an episode where, in a tale of the history of Arnold's parents, Phil starts to tell Arnold about what happened AFTER their wedding...but then stops himself in the nick of time. However, the Shortmans are seen going into a tent alone and actually laying down together while the music begins to heat up. It's a pretty bold scene for a Nicktoon, actually!
- The Smurfs special "Smurfily Ever After" gives us G-Rated Marriage Consummation, as when Smurfette imagines herself being married to Hefty, he takes her into his house, gets (partially) undressed, and wants to get all "hot and sweaty" with Smurfette...by doing exercises with her!
- In Star Wars: Clone Wars we see Anakin and Padme having a respite from the war and spending time together, culminating on spending the night together, it's implied that that was the moment they conceived Luke and Leia.
- In one of the Czech Krtek (Mole) animated shorts, a little dance is all it takes for the rabbit girl to get pregnant, and immediately give birth to a litter of bunnies, on screen (!).
- In Adventure Time, at one point in the "Breezy" episode, Finn and Lumpy Space Princess lie down on top of each other, LSP is very clearly sexually aroused (she wants to swim in "the deep end", not "the kiddie pool"), but it is never explicitly stated that they had sex.
- On King of the Hill, John Redcorn uses his day job as a massage therapist to score women; Nancy Gribble euphemistically refers to her flings with him as her "migraine treatments"
- In Toy Story That Time Forgot, the scene after Reptilius allows himself to be played with for the first time ends in a shot of him lying collapsed next to Trixie, both with blissed-out expressions, while he tells her in a breathy voice that the experience was amazing.
