Yes, finding out that a person's parents conceived them in a three-way in a garage tells something about them. Finding out a person masturbates while crying in the garage because hes impotent with his wife tells us something about him. But labeling the first as Three-Way Sex
or labeling the second as Masturbation
does nothing to document either scene. It would be just as useful (not useful at all) to label each one Significant Garage Scene
Let's take it a step further back. Sex
. Sex is always narratively significant (as is masturbation, as is three-way sex). Should we have a sex
trope? No. Because sex can mean many things, many completely unconnected things. We can instead, and do, have a list of Sex Tropes
And this isn't a lumper v splitter debate. A lumper might want to list the frustrated, lonely masturbator in the same page as the frustrated, lonely three-wayer. The splitter ight want separate pages. Both have valid positions. But if someone wants to list either of those on a page with the some guy on Entourage
doing it on a plane while laughing, they're wrong.
