The plot counterpart of dialog's OneThingLedToAnother. A sexual pairing is portrayed with a couple opening lines of flirt (or normal conversation), then an immediate cut to the bedroom. Often used for comedic effect. In poorly written scripts, the pairing may be unlikely and the device is used to gloss over this fact. However, it's most likely that the writers themselves have so little experience with seduction that they wouldn't know how to illustrate it believably, even if there were time.

Differs from a GilliganCut not only in that it is specifically used for sex, but that the lines or actions leading up to the cut do not necessarily refer directly to the upcoming sex or post-sex scene.

* There was a (now deleted) ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' one-shot called "Feral" where Raven comes to talk to Beast Boy, who is upset and stays locked in his room due to his feral side trying to emerge. She talks to him, then there is a PinkySwear that he won't be so upset anymore... cut to the morning, and Raven reflecting on how well she slept due to being exhausted by the night activities.
* In Chapter 3 of ''Fanfic/SonOfTheSannin'', Tsunade and Jiraiya go for a few drinks and the next morning, [[BedmateReveal they wake up in her bedroom, naked and embracing each other]]. They talk about this, and while they admit to have developed feelings for each other, they decide to take things slow. Then the next morning, Shizune finds them sleeping on the couch...


[[folder: Film]]
* One exception, where a seduction is shown with far more detail than normal, occurs in ''Film/GroundhogDay'', as Bill Murray is living the same day over and over and the writers have a chance to show the (fantastical) process of failure and correction.
* In ''Film/CabinFever'', Marcy casually suggests to Paul that people who are [[OutWithABang in a certain-death situation would probably just want to have one last screw, with any available partner.]] Literally the next thing we see is the two of them naked, and Marcy is throwing a seemingly reluctant Paul down on the bed to ride him vigorously. The foreplay was aparrently so brisk that Paul didn't even have time to ask Marcy about using a condom until after they were already having sex.
* Used in ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon''
* Used in ''Film/LostInTranslation''. The lounge singer sits down next to Bob, says "Hi", and this trope occurs. Well, it cuts to the morning after.
* "[[ThrowItIn The Line]]" from ''Film/SharkAttack3Megalodon'' immediately cuts to John Barrowman in a ShowerOfLove with Jennifer [=McShane=].
* In ''Film/IronMan1'', a few lines of accusatory interviewing between Tony Stark and reporter Christine Everhart are enough for a one night stand. One minute they're arguing about war profiteering, the next they're leaping into bed together.

[[folder: Live Action Television]]
* Appears a lot in ''Series/MadMen''.
* ''Series/TheWire'': [[HandsomeLech Jimmy McNulty]] frequently produces these. Memorably, [[ he once manages]] to pick up a waitress from an all-night diner while drunk out of his mind and having just crashed his car. Twice. In the same place.
* ''Series/SixFeetUnder'': Happens to Nate early on in the Pilot.
* Happened in ''Series/{{Friends}}'' as Joey and an actress discussed how to make their characters' relationship seem more fiery.
* ''Series/TheAffair'': After Noah and Helen break up, he runs into the swimmer who flirted with him in the first episode, who tells him she's now engaged. [[YourCheatingHeart Commence sex scene]].

[[folder: Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'', This can happen between [[KnightInShiningArmour Kent]] and [[FailureKnight Fiora]] if you decide to [[RelationshipValues pair them up]]. While it's not outright stated that this is what happened, it's rather evident that this is the case. You can best appreciate the irony of it all by watching it [[ here.]]

[[folder: Web Comics]]
* In the webcomic ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', with Tip and Dr. Lee. Played for laughs, since Tip's ability to convince women to sleep with him is something of a RunningGag.

[[folder: Web Original]]
* The season 3 finale of ''WebVideo/TheGuild'', with [[spoiler: Cyd and Fawkes.]]

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'':
** Zapp Brannigan and Leela in the episode "Love's Labours Lost in Space". Used as a quasi plot-device because Leela is bewildered ever after as to why she slept with him.
** In "Proposition Infinity":
-->'''Amy:''' Don't tell me to shut up! You know what happened with the last guy who told me to shut up?\\
'''Bender:''' What?\\
''(Cut to them in bed)''
