Y.M.M.V.,but I don't know if the masturbation fantasy in "A Confederacy of Dunces" is supposed to be squicky—odd yes, but:

Ignatius J. Reilly has no experience with a partner, and is extremely sexually repressed and religious so it's possible that he has never viewed or read pornography. He is thinking not, as the description's wording might suggest, of his dog's dead body or of sex with it, but of his dog back when it was alive and frolicking with him, which might be literally the only experience Reilly has had of unrestrained joy and play.

Again, not what I would think about, but I'm pretty sure that no bestiality or necrophilia were meant to be suggested, just someone in a joyless life (albeit one he had made so) reaching back in time to a moment of freedom and happiness comparable to what some people are able to experience in sex.

I'm not sure we need to have an image for this trope. Feel free to prove me wrong though.

Yeah, best we don't have a page image. I mean, this is a rather touchy subject.

Why are the examples hidden instead of being deleted?

I seem to be missing any consensus to delete them or for them to be moved or deleted if they do not fall under the given tropes. I reupped them.

They were supposed to be deleted per a TRS thread, but someone commented them out instead. I've deleted them. I tried to paste them here, but it glitched when I tried. Guess it's too much text. Anyway, I have them in a file on my computer if we need them.

You could always split them into separate "posts" here. Do note that folders will not work, though.

Would the first verse of Flagpole Sitta work in the miscellaneous section, or is the innuendo too vague to confirm?

Somehow Portnoy's Complaint has been listed in three different subsections.

Just thought I'd say, I had the same reaction to Alyson Hannigan in American Pie as Cuchulainn 98 has to Eliza Dushku with a stake. The Squick comes in with her, ah, using it after, or before killing vampires. That is so wrong.

Then again it's Faith.
