"Twice in Revolutionary Road, once when April Wheeler (Kate Winslet) with her husband (Leonardo Dicaprio) on a kitchen counter, and with a neighbor (with similar stamina) in a car. Each 'one take' scene is portrayed as usual and April's character doesn't seem to react to the duration."

There's a few similar examples here which imply that the scene *portrays* very brief sex, but none of the characters seem to care about that. That isn't really the same trope; that's more of a Reality Is Unrealistic (or not-so unrealistic...) thing than the character reaction trope described here.

Yeah, that's more "film doesn't want to spend a major fraction of its run time on a sex scene so they're quicker."

I'm sure there are a lot more movies which can be added to the list of examples of this trope

Speed sex sounds like it's deliberately brief or simply sex with pacy action. Maybe use a common euphemism for the title, such as 'quick to the trigger', 'before the fat lady sings' or 'over in a flash'. Maybe 'one minute wonder' or 'six thrust sex'

Smo, I think the trope name is a proper one. I've added material to aid in how characters (or tropers) could avoid this situation. I've done my best to be both conscientious and also not overly explicit (at least no more so than most other of the sex tropes I have seen so far) I'm 50 years old and speaking from at least two marriages and a lot of reading. Please discuss with me before deleting it.

This page is no more likely to be cut than any other of its type. Anyway, please remember to follow the No Lewdness guidlines when adding to the page (I'm not saying you haven't, just that it's a problem which could happen). Also, name changes go to the Trope Repair Shop rather than discussion pages.
