Differs from a GilliganCut not only in that it is specifically used for sex, but that the lines or actions leading up to the cut do not necessarily refer directly to the upcoming sex or post-sex scene.

Differs from a GilliganCut not only in that it is specifically used for sex, but that the lines or actions leading up to the cut do not necessarily refer directly to the upcoming sex or post-sex scene. Often used for character with InstantSeduction skills.


* In ''Film/IronMan1'', a few lines of accusatory interviewing between Tony Stark and reporter Christine Everhart are enough for a one night stand. One minute they're arguing about war profiteering, the next they're leaping into bed together.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/DasBoot'': Carla comes into Simone's apartment, they share a long soulful look, kiss and then we see them lying in bed together after having had sex. This may come as a surprise to many in the audience, who didn't sense any attraction between them beforehand (though Carla apparently did).

Added DiffLines:

* On an episode of ''Series/TheShield'', Vic is getting friendly with a domestic violence worker. She asks if he's married and he replies that he's separated. The next second they're screwing in a motel room.


* In ''Film/CabinFever'', Marcy casually suggests to Paul that people who are [[OutWithABang in a certain-death situation would probably just want to have one last screw, with any available partner.]] Literally the next thing we see is the two of them naked, and Marcy is throwing a seemingly reluctant Paul down on the bed to ride him vigorously. The foreplay was aparrently so brisk that Paul didn't even have time to ask Marcy about using a condom until after they were already having sex.

* Coca-Cola at one point had a particular ad campaign for Coke Zero which boasts it has great taste AND zero sugar. The gimmick was that people weren't satisfied with something they got until they said "And...?" and were thus rewarded for being so forward. In one commercial, one of the scenes showed a girl complimenting a guy trying on jeans at a store where she worked. She comments, as he tries on jeans in front of a mirror, that his jeans are nice, and after he asks, "And...?" she adds that she "gets off at four". Cue a quick montage of [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything symbolism of them getting it on]], from the obvious clothes hitting the floor and the lamp being switched off to rabbits sitting next to each other, waves crashing onto rocks, and a volcano erupting. This scene doesn't show up in later edits of this particular ad, so it might have been cut for [[ImpliedTrope implying this trope]].


* In ''Film/IronMan1'', a few lines of accusatory interviewing between Tony Stark and [[HotScoop reporter]] Christine Everhart are enough for a one night stand. One minute they're arguing about war profiteering, the next they're leaping into bed together.

Added DiffLines:

* In Chapter 3 of ''Fanfic/SonOfTheSannin'', Tsunade and Jiraiya go for a few drinks and the next morning, [[BedmateReveal they wake up in her bedroom, naked and embracing each other]]. They talk about this, and while they admit to have developed feelings for each other, they decide to take things slow. Then the next morning, Shizune finds them sleeping on the couch...


* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'', This can happen between [[KnightInShiningArmour Kent]] and [[FailureKnight Fiora]] if you decide to [[RelationshipValues pair them up]]. While it's not outright stated that this is what happened, it's rather evident that this is the case. You can best appreciate the irony of it all by watching it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-_Lg9f0ags here.]]

* In the webcomic ''SkinHorse'', with Tip and Dr. Lee. Played for laughs, since Tip's ability to convince women to sleep with him is something of a RunningGag.

* There was a (now deleted) ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' one-shot called "Feral" where Raven comes to talk to Beast Boy, who is upset and stays locked in his room due to his feral side trying to emerge. She talks to him, then there is a PinkySwear that he won't be so upset anymore... cut to the morning, and Raven reflecting on how well she slept due to being exhausted by the night activities.
