Bed Full of Women

Go To
Dyno-mite, Dyno-mite!

There are many ways for a man to express power. One of them is having several women in his bed, presumably there for more than just body heat and implying the man also has the sexual stamina to deal with that many women. The man will never be in the bed with them, of course—he's off at the balcony or window, brooding about the plot.

Note that we never see the bed before or during all the presumed action—only the aftermath, with the women asleep and the man awake. One woman may wake to converse with him, but only one. How much the sheets cover or how much the women are wearing depends on what rating and audience the media is targeting.

Compare Sexy Man, Instant Harem, The Pornomancer, and A Lady on Each Arm. Frequently used to establish the man as a Sex God. The ladies may be members of a Royal Harem. A subtrope of Men Are Tough and Women Are Delicate: in this case, sexual prowess is equivalent to toughness/power and a multitude of women are submissive to the dominant man.

    Anime & Manga 
  • In Berserk, we are introduced to imprisoned war criminal Wyald like this, in a room full of naked women, only that it's very much NOT a before or after scene. Also, to add to the Fan Disservice and to show what kind of character we're dealing with here, none of the women are there of their own free will, and most of them are dead.
  • In Fushigi Yuugi, the Emperor of Kutou talks to Nakago while in bed with three concubines.
  • Happens various times to Issei in High School Dx D throughout the story, starting with Rias and Asia and expanding in number as Issei gains the love of another girl through the seasons and volumes, though the crowning example is at the start of Volume 14. He even gets kicked out his own bed by Xenovia due to just how many girls are beside him (and Xenovia's poor sleeping posture).
  • In Jojos Bizarre Adventure, Part 3, DIO's almost perpetually in one of these situations... except most of the women there are implied to be dead; he sees them mostly as food. He's a sexy vampire.
  • In Legend of the Galactic Heroes, one corrupt governor surrounds himself with half-naked concubines.
  • Happened to Yuuto in the last chapter of Omamori Himari while his consciousness is separated from his body. When he returns to his body, he awakes to find out that over half of his harem had their way with him in his sleep.

    Comic Books 
  • In Ultimate Marvel, the Hulk disappears to Tibet, where he is eventually found by Wolverine. When we first see the big green man, he's surrounded by hundreds of naked/half-naked women, with the implication that he's slept with and skillfully satisfied all of them. Like we said, he's a big green man.
  • In Fury MAX, the framing sequence has Nick Fury writing his memoirs with three prostitutes lying asleep and exhausted in bed behind him.
  • In his earlier appearances in Punisher MAX, also by Garth Ennis, Fury similarly tells the Punisher that he plans to have sex with "every hooker in New York City." We see him get a start on it via this trope.
  • Gender-swapped in the "Obsidian Age" arc of Justice League of America, where one scene shows proto-Amazon Sela waking up in a bed full of naked or half-naked men.
  • In Project Superpowers, Truth and Dare find Captain Future in bed with several scantly-clad women, all of them nearly dead from exhaustion.

    Fan Works 
  • In Light and Dark The Adventures of Dark Yagami, the morning after Dark becomes the Shinigami King, he wakes up with "the four hundred women he had sexed with naked last night."
  • Played for Laughs in DC Nation where the Star Sapphires, trying to study the nature of romantic love, have kidnapped Earth's Green Lanterns and their love interests. Unable to figure out who to set up with Hal Jordan, he ends up waking up in their experiment with five of his exes.
  • In the Star Wars fan trailer Dark Resurrection — Keepers of the Force, a Sith Lord is introduced lying on a circular bed with four naked women artistically arranged around him, caressing his manly chest.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • Austin Powers in Goldmember: When Austin Powers goes to rescue his father Nigel from the clutches of Goldmember, he finds his dad in bed with four of Goldmember's female henchmen. Nigel asks if he might mind coming back in a few minutes so he can finish with them.
  • Black Dynamite: Parodies this by showing the eponymous hero in bed with women, and after he gets out of bed, even more women are revealed to be hidden in the bedroom.
  • El Mariachi: When filming, the actor playing Azul said he'd only appear in the film if he could have this trope. Director Robert Rodriguez explained that they weren't making a porn movie, but if he could find the women then Azul could have a couple of female bodyguards instead. So in the movie, Azul wakes up with these two girls, then has to go out. One of his mooks sneaks over to have a look and maybe sample the goods, only to flee when he has several guns stuck in his face.
  • Enter the Dragon: Shows Williams relaxing in his room, along with the four women that he had previously chosen to spend the night there.
  • Gangs of New York: Bill the Butcher had a bed full of women after spending the night in a whorehouse recovering from a bullet wound to the shoulder earlier that day. It's indicated that he's a regular there.
  • The Italian Job (1969). Exaggerated. Michael Caine gets out of prison to find an entire room full of women waiting for him, courtesy of his organised crime friends.
  • Machete Kills: Played for Laughs. Machete places a call to the President of the United States. The phone is picked up by a sleepy yet hot female White House intern, who hands it to another female intern in the bed beside her, who hands it to another female intern, who hands the phone to the President.
  • The Man in the Iron Mask: A hay pile rather than a bed. Porthos is at first presumed to be rutting with a single woman, but two more gradually come up for air.
  • The Nutty Professor (1996): Buddy Love sleeps with a bunch of girls at one point. The next morning, Buddy reverts to fat Sherman Klump, who is horrified to wake up surrounded by a bunch of girls he doesn't know.
  • Piccadilly Jim: The opening scene has the title character waking up in such a bed after a hard night of partying.
  • Riddick: After Riddick has been crowned the new Lord Marshal of the Necromongers, he's seen lounging in the Marshal's private quarters where there's a bed full of royal consorts. In a subversion, this is made to appear sinister, as Riddick suspects they're just there to make him let down his guard and kill him in his sleep.
  • The Transporter Refueled: After spending a night with the main female character, the protagonist Frank Martin goes into another room to find his Retired Badass father sleeping with two other women. Rather than feel outclassed, Frank just smiles. It's implied his father used to be a spy for British Intelligence.
  • Troy: When Achilles is roused awake by the army's messenger boy, the camera reveals two women on his sleeping palette.
  • The Shadow: Early on, when Lamont is still Ying Ko, there's a brief scene with Lamont in bed with several women. It's never stated whether they're paid women, sex slaves, or voluntarily serving him in that fashion, but whichever is correct the scene shows that Lamont is top dog in the area.
  • xXx: A Deleted Scene shows Yorgi the morning after a big party, on a bed with three sleeping women. The scene was done in case the film was given an R-rating (for violence) so the audience would feel they'd got their money's worth. The movie itself has him walking off with this harem of girls the day before, but only sleeping with one of them.
  • Young Lady Chatterley II: By the end, Virgil (who started the film a shy virgin) has all five maids in his bed at the one time.


    Live-Action TV

  • Dominion: Our very first view of Michael begins with a pan over his bed and the several women in it, before one wakes to talk with him about the self loathing he's engaging in because of it and his fear of having a half human, half angel child.
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus: In "The Idiot in Society", a TV documentary on village idiots, John Cleese's Idiot is quite successful.
    Voiceover: But what of the idiot's private life? How about his relationship with women?
    (idiot in bed; pull back to reveal he shares it with two ladies)
    Idiot: Well, I may be an idiot, but I'm no fool.
  • In the penultimate episode of 30 Rock, Jack Donaghy sets out to excel in every area of his life. As part of this, he manages to convince his two very Catholic ex-girlfriends, Nancy Donovan and Elisa, into a menage a trois that not only leaves the two women satisfied but somehow leaves them both speaking with impeccable British RP accents. (While there are fewer women than usual in this example, the absurd aftereffects seem to push things into a parody of this trope.)
  • This is part of Pierce's fantasy sequence in the Community episode "Horror Fiction In Seven Spooky Steps": as "Magnum", he's sleeping with all three women in the study group at once and has a Gag Penis to boot.
  • Babylon 5:
    • Slightly downplayed in an early episode where Na'Toth visits G'Kar in his quarters early in the morning. He answers the door to her in a nightshirt, and during their conversation she is irritated when three scantily-clad human women, implied to be hookers, come out of the bedroom.
    • Downplayed a bit further in the finale, where Emperor Vir is in bed with two Centauri women when a Ranger arrives with an invitation to Sheridan's farewell. Justified in that Centauri males are equipped with six tentacles.
  • Invoked in Game of Thrones. King Robert, a known whoremonger, stations his brother-in-law Jaime Lannister outside his bedchamber while he parties with hookers, which we can hear from behind the closed door. Ned walks up, and while he and Jaime discuss matters, every so often a girl leaves the bedroom but the room is still just as loud as before.

  • In the Music Video for "Feel Good Inc." by the Gorillaz, Murdoc is lying on the floor surrounded by beautiful women he's just had sex with at an orgy.

    Video Games 
  • Catherine: In the "Best Catherine" ending, the main character has moved in with the eponymous heroine in The Underworld and after spending a lengthy amount of time there has transformed into an incubus like his girlfriend. He's become so powerful (and, apparently, so skilled at sex) that in addition to Catherine, he's surrounded by several other succubi who moan and fawn over him.
  • God of War:
    • Kratos never accumulates more than two per bed, yet he still manages to sleep with nearly that many per game, with each of them always commending his abilities. As the titular God of War he can be seen with two at his side.
    • Ghost of Sparta hits the trope full on when a harem literally dog-piles on Kratos' (offscreen, except for shaking bedposts) bed after hearing and seeing his exploits with the initial and usual two that accompany him.

    Web Animation 
  • Batmetal: The first video ends with Batman in bed with Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Batgirl, Zatanna, Wonder Woman, Sue Richards, and Power Girl while another character films.

  • Unsounded: Duane is given a bedroom full of prostitutes at the Deadly Nevergreen in order to distract him. This does not work as intended given Duane is a married priest who lost all touch sensation, beyond phantom pains, years ago as his flesh rotted. He instead bores the women to sleep by reading from a very dry wordy religious text.

    Web Original 
  • In the CollegeHumor sketch "The Six Monsters You'll Have For Roommates", The Protagonist contemplates having a three-way or a four-way with some girls from school, or just "stay[ing] in bed all day and eat cake and hot wings" when he gets a single dorm room. He then finds that having a roommate makes it much easier to deal with Things That Go "Bump" in the Night.

    Western Animation 
  • Family Guy: At the end of "Valentine's Day in Quahog", Brian ends up with all his exes like this.
