Between My Legs

Go To

A standard shot where someone or something is framed between the legs of another person. Widely used for movie posters and VHS/DVD covers.

The most famous example is probably the poster for the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only and subsequent parodies thereof. The poster designer for this film decided to put the one-piece swimsuit of the woman on back to front, exposing quite a bit more of her rear. This attracted quite a degree of controversy and in several locales shorts were painted on. The second most common takes after the shot in The Graduate and the famous line "Mrs. Robinson — you're trying to seduce me... Aren't you?"

Sometimes this is used to introduce the hero of the story ready to take on his nemesis, or the nemesis that the hero must eventually face, without showing who that person is. The legs of that person could belong to a literal "bigger bad".

Also a standard shot for Dress Hits Floor. This shot is commonly used to establish either The Vamp and/or a Dominatrix. Can very often overlap with Male Gaze, if the shot is used to draw attention to a character's backside and legs, and generally includes Leg Focus. Note however, that the person whose legs are used as a frame is not always a woman, and the legs are not always bare.

In fight scenes the shot is often followed by a Groin Attack. In Westerns, this is usually the harbinger of the Showdown at High Noon.

Referred to as "The A Frame" in this article. Lots of posters can be seen here.

Reverse angle and it's not the title character, but Willow. Same thing happens in the first shot of Season 6, too, only this time it's the Buffybot.

  • Used in Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" about 2:25 into the video.
  • In Lit's music video for "Miserable", the band is at one point framed by Pamela Anderson's legs. This served multiple purposes. One was of course fanservice, since it gives us a great view of Pam's toned legs and her platform heel stripper shoes. Another was to further emphasize her gargantuan stature (since she is a giantess and most of the video is the band using her scantily clad body as a performance stage ). The third is to show how much power she wields over all the all-male band members and why she was able to so easily hunt them down and devour them at the end.

  • For yet-unknown reasons, The Naturals' entrance in TNA Wrestling was often framed by So-Cal Val's legs. TNA tried to get at least one camera shot of So-Cal Val per show back then, resulting in several other wrestlers getting the "frame" treatment. We're guessing it was for fanservice reasons.

  • Red vs. Blue:
    • Season 8's Episode 10 gives us this shot after Tex slides through Grif's legs. He looks up, and sees the heat-seeking rocket fired earlier going for his crotch. (It doesn't hit him, which is a good thing, as he suffered about six of them earlier in quick succession).
    • Season 10 Episode 5 gives us another one with North providing the A-Frame and Washington's head peering in between (at Theta, North's shy AI). A hilarious scene commences where Wash mentions he thought "it" (Theta) would be "bigger".

  • An episode of the Super Mario World cartoon has one where Kootie Pie (Wendy O.) walks up to the scene where Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Yoshi are between her legs.
  • Sym-Bionic Titan: Kimmy's legs (with Newton in the shot) during the infamous "Booty Quake" scene.
  • El Tigre has an example of this with Maria (Manny's mom) in the episode "A Mother's Glove".
  • In addition to pretty much every other Fanservice trope, Totally Spies! uses this trope often. In addition to all three girls having this shot several times (sometimes even framing each other), an assload of other one time characters have had it. Oh, and Jerry.
  • In Transformers: Prime episode "Speed Metal", this is how Sierra is first framed when she starts the race between Jack (driving Bumblebee) and Jerk Jock Vince.
  • White Tiger and Dagger from Ultimate Spider-Man
  • The Venture Brothers uses this shot at least once, usually with Brock being the framer. Oh, and he's usually naked.
  • Occurs in several episodes of Winx Club.
    • Both Stella and Musa in the episode "Spelled".
    • Flora in "The Nightmare Monster".
    • Bloom in "Island of the Dragons".
    • Stella again in "At the Last Moment".
  • In the X-Men: Evolution episode "Shadowed Past'', Rogue's legs frame Mystique when she stops her from escaping.

When Kaguya takes off her clothes, they go flying in the air all at once... just as Tekken comes inside her room.
