->''"Oh... My... GOD! Commander Kokonoe,'' that ''is soooo awesome! No, seriously... I'm feeling a tingly sensation in my naughty bits..."''
-->-- '''[[MsFanservice Makoto]]''', ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlue BlazBlue: Continuum Shift]]''

For some reason, geeks like to make jokes that geeks actually have sexual arousal about their geek interests. Not sex or {{fetish}}es, this is about the latest technology or something like that. Basically, it's the geek factor that is turning them on. If the thought of Franchise/WonderWoman fighting [[ComicBook/XMen Storm]] turns someone on because it would be an awesome comic, and ''not'' because [[GirlOnGirlIsHot it's two hot chicks fighting]], you have this trope.

Just one of the many ways TVTropesWillRuinYourLife. Also, some of the examples would be NotSafeForWork.

This also doesn't count if [[RagingStiffie a guy just has raging hormones and gets erections at anything]], nor does it count if it's merely {{Squee}} or SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced. There ''has'' to be implications of sexual arousal.

This can happen even when NerdsAreVirgins.

Compare with GeekyTurnOn, {{Squee}}, WhyDontYouMarryIt, AwesomenessIsVolatile.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Yellow Overdrive Power Ranger]] Ronny seemed to get quite hot and bothered when she saw the zords her team were going to be driving. The fans, of course, latched on to her "zordgasm", and soon put her in a CargoShip (with drills, after she had a similar reaction to the Drill Blaster in a later episode).
* Creator/StephenFry has a nerdgasm in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ovD21KbSDM#t=9m50s this video]] after spotting a Tesla Roadster in traffic and hearing how big of a touchscreen the new Model S will have in the dash. During his second appearance in the "Star In A Reasonably-Priced Car" segment on ''TopGear'', he got more than a little excited while driving his fast lap and Jeremy asked him if he'd [[UnusualEuphemism had a crisis]].
** On Stephen's quiz program ''Series/{{QI}}'' this is a RunningGag. Following a particularly impressive display of obscure knowledge, someone will suggest that they, Stephen, or another guest (often Phill Jupitus) are now aroused.
* Parodied on an episode of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' with a fake commercial for a sex chat line featuring women dressed as different geek icons (including [[Franchise/StarWars Princess Leia]], [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Uhura]], and [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Galadriel]]) who speak only in references to their respective works.

[[folder: Newspaper Comics ]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'', ComedicSociopath Mao has a tendency to do this whenever he witnesses something particularly [[ForTheEvulz evil]].

[[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Don't]] [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs ask]].
-->'''Makoto''': "Oh... My... GOD! Commander Kokonoe, that is so awesome! No, seriously, I'm getting a tingly sensation in my naughty bits... Please, can I have control? Please? ''Pretty please''!?"



* A really disturbing strip of ''Webcomic/DuelingAnalogs''. Apparently the combined news of ''VideoGame/MegaMan [[http://www.duelinganalogs.com/comic/2008/06/18/megabomb/ 9]]'' and ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} [[http://www.duelinganalogs.com/comic/2008/06/30/diablow-iii/ III]]'' made a mess to clean up.
