Playing With: Auto Erotica
Basic Trope: Two characters have sex in a vehicle.
  • Straight: Alice and Bob have sex in a car.
  • Exaggerated:
  • Downplayed: Alice and Bob have sex in a vehicle...that's a camper van with a bed in it.
  • Justified: The two characters are in the mood and nowhere near a private bed, so they opt for the next best thing—namely, the backseat.
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted:
    • Alice and Bob park their car and decide to play cards.
    • Alternatively, an onlooker sees the car rocking and hears enthusiastic shouting, but it turns out that Alice and Bob are listening to the radio and have just won the lottery.
  • Double Subverted:
    • An officer finds Alice and Bob playing cards in the car. When the officer decides nothing bad is going on and walks away, Alice and Bob decide to have sex anyway.
    • Alice and Bob celebrate winning the lottery by having sex while still in the car.
  • Parodied:
    • Alice and Bob go to buy a new car. They have to kick out people having sex in the first one they look at.
    • Alternatively, Alice and Bob go to buy a new car. Their idea of "test drive" is to have sex in the car and promptly buy the most comfortable one.
  • Zig Zagged:
    • Alice has A Date with Rosie Palms in her car.
    • Alternatively, all the audience and the other characters know is that Alice and Bob were alone in a vehicle together. Did They or Didn't They? ensues, with enough evidence presented to support either side.
  • Averted: Alice and Bob don't have sex in the car.
  • Enforced: The writers believe that the audiences will expect to see some nookie should the two romantic leads end up secluded in the backseat of a car.
  • Lampshaded: "Tell me, do you always keep condoms in your glove box?"
  • Invoked: "We're in my car, and since we've got nothing better to do..." (Wink wink)
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Alice and Bob avoid car sex because it just wouldn't be special.
  • Discussed: "Alice and Bob drove to Make-Out Point last night and lost their virginities to each other in the backseat."
  • Conversed: "Ugh, a car just isn't a good place for making love. They could have easily found a bed somewhere."
  • Deconstructed: Alice and Bob try to get into position in the backseat, but the cramped space and itchy seat covers kill the mood.
  • Reconstructed: Alice and Bob are in a van, and there is more than plenty of room for nookie.
  • Played For Drama: The frequent car sex is really taking a toll on Bob's back, but he doesn't want to displease Alice so he continues to do it. Eventually, they start to argue over it.
