"Bow Chicka Wow Wow" is the sound of a character beatboxing porno music, based on the funk-rock soundtracks most '70s pornos had. This is usually done after the character has seen or heard something lewd. Or sometimes simply imagined something lewd. Compare That's What She Said.
See also Sexophone. Not to be confused with the children's alphabet rhyme Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, nor the song "Gitchee Gitchee Goo" (which does include "bow chicka wow wow" in its chorus) from Phineas and Ferb. And neither is it "Gichie Gichie Yaya Dada" from Lady Marmalade song. Also not to be confused with the similarly basso register of the song "Oh Yeah." Nor is it Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.note And it's certainly not Shika Shika Ka-Boom, which has to do with a totally different sort of hotness.

Black Canary: Oh, those. We okayed those to be sold for charity. The profits go to victims of super villains.
Zatanna: Uh-huh. (magical sparks go from her finger to the toys)
Green Arrow Doll: Hey, pretty bird. I ain't seen you around the Barbie aisle before.
Black Canary: I guess you were on reserve when we made that deal.
Zatanna: I'm not bitter. Bount-chicka-bount-bount.note
Black Canary Doll: Hey yourself, Robin Hood. Is that an arrow in your quiver or are you just happy to see me?
