* Inverted in ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' vol. 2 #56. The title character, stranded on a distant planet without sapient life, fashions a vegetable replica of his lover Abby, choosing to ignore that it's he who's making her move and speak. As he fights the growing realization that he's [[GoMadFromTheIsolation going mad from the isolation]], "Abby" tries to seduce him by saying "Lie with me." The [[TheBible KingJamesVersion]] term for "have sex" also has the meaning here of "deliberately engage in falsehood."

* "Finbarr Saunders and his Double Entendres" is a strip in ''{{Viz}}'' in which the title character laughs at various DoubleEntendre-sounding phrases exchanged between his mother and his neighbor. It always culminates in him realizing it's all perfectly innocent, only for the last DoubleEntendre to ''actually'' have the sexual meaning and the strip to end with his mother and the neighbor shagging.

** In Deadpool & Cable, Deadpool gloats that he has become more popular than Cable, and thus his name is on the first line:
-->'''Deadpool:''' More pop culture fans cosplay me at one con in one weekend than they have you in like, twenty years! And now I finally get to be on top! I always had to be on the bottom, but I didn't really like it. I just accepted it. You were bigger, older, more experienced, so you deserved to be on top. But it's my turn now, baby!

* One arc of NewAvengers was a FantasticVoyagePlot. When Ant-Man and Doctor Strange go into Luke Cage's body to retrieve an explosive device from his heart, Spider-Man can't resist reminding Luke that "you have two men inside you right now."

* The newspaper comic ''{{Cathy}}'' once featured the line than an off panel character was "in the restroom, giving the copier repairman a swirlie." The artist, Cathy Guisewite, was stunned that many readers thought that was a reference to oral sex, because she had always heard a "swirlie" was dunking someone's head in a toilet and flushing.


* Somewhat disturbing example: in ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' volume 2, when Mina Murray learns that Hyde has taken care of the Invisible Man, he is quick to assure her that "I attended to his ''end''. Rest assured, it was... comfortable." Being a proper Victorian lady, Mina takes comfort in this assurance of a painless death, not twigging for a second that this ''actually'' means that [[spoiler:Hyde brutally sodomized the Invisible Man before beating him to death.]]
