Playing With: Coitus Uninterruptus
Basic Trope: A character walks in on two people having sex with each other, who continue their activity nonetheless.
  • Straight: Carol bursts into the room while Alice and Bob are having sex. Bob refuses to let this interrupt the coitus.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Carol bursts into the room while Alice and Bob are having a huge orgy. Bob invites Carol to join in.
    • Carol bursts into the room while Alice and Bob are having sex, covered in blood.
  • Downplayed: Alice and Bob were merely kissing when Carol entered the room.
  • Justified:
    • Carol works for Alice's fertility doctor, and Bob knows to expect someone walking in on their sex to make sure they're not doing it wrong.
    • People watching is one of Alice and Bob's turn-ons.
    • Both Alice and Bob are just too horny and can't stop, regardless of Carol walking in.
  • Inverted: Alice and Bob are having sex - all over the house - and fall through the guest room door where Carol is sleeping. Without stopping.
  • Subverted: Alice and Bob were not doing anything remotely sexual when Carol walks in.
  • Double Subverted: They start doing it not long after Carol walks in though.
  • Parodied: Carol intentionally tries to interrupt Alice and Bob. Hilarity Ensues...
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Bob immediately gets out of the bed to deal with the matter.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "Oh don't mind Alice, Carol; what did you want to tell me?"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Alice and Bob make sure the door's locked to prevent any interruptions.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
