Parental Sexuality Squick

Go To

Peter Quill: I don't need to hear how my parents...
Drax: Why? My father would tell the story of impregnating my mother every winter solstice.
Peter: That's disgusting.
Drax: [offended] It was beautiful! You Earthers have hang-ups!

Do you have parents? Are your parents human? Do you have any siblings, particularly any who are not your twin/triplet/etc?

If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions, then... it logically follows that your parents have had sex, at least once in their lives, and quite possibly more than once.

Of course...

  • You could be the product of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), informally called a "test-tube baby." But IVF is expensive even with insurance, and is generally only done after couples have been trying to conceive the old-fashioned way for a long period of time. Unless they're the same sex, in which case they're probably still making sweet love one way or another.
  • You could be some kind of deity or demi-deity, arising out of a virgin birth — but statistically, that's so unlikely as to be impossible. And, as Dogma pointed out, being the product of a virgin birth doesn't necessarily mean your parents didn't get it on afterwards.

But I Digress. Now, listen closely: Barring the above exceptions, your parents put Tab A into Slot B to bring you into the world.

Disgusting, isn't it?

In fiction, it's common enough to see a child react with curiosity to their parents in a Primal Scene. But once they reach puberty, the very thought that their parents might be doing the nasty (or even just kissing in front of them, for the G-rated version) is enough to send them searching for the Brain Bleach. Usually by the time a child reaches their twenties, and is able to fully comprehend and empathize with sexual attraction and activity, this reaction lessens — generally from "Eww, gross!" to "I really didn't need to know that, Dad." — although for comedic effect, it might not fully go away, as Peter Quill in the page quote above can attest to.

The inversion, a parent grossed out by their adult child's sexual antics, is not uncommon. Compare I Banged Your Mom, Affection-Hating Kid (though most affection that kids gag at in media is SFW), Old People are Nonsexual (the belief that aging should kill sexuality). Contrast The Talk, which can be used to prevent this.

  • A DirectTV ad plays on this, with the son going home to be comforted by his parents after getting a high cable bill, only to see them in the middle of a group of elderly couples engaging in slow massages. Which results in the son driving away with tears in his eyes, which in turn has him driving into "a pizzeria that makes really good baked ziti."
  • One Clorox Bleach commercial has a woman fixing breakfast as her senior citizen parents have come for an overnight visit. The dad then says, "Better hurry up with those eggs. Your mother and I worked up quite the appetite last night," as the two exchange very telling looks. Cut to the daughter now washing her bedsheets. For life's "bleachable" moments, indeed.
  • One Downy ad involves a teen being squicked out when his grandparents come out of a closet with wrinkled clothes.
  • An IKEA commercial features a middle-aged couple gleefully chasing each other around the house to the sound of country music, she wearing lingerie and rubber boots and wielding a pitchfork, and he in his underwear and wearing a pig mask. They're abruptly interrupted by their adult daughter arriving home, accompanied by her boyfriend, and they all stare mortified at each other—until the parents and boyfriend crack up. The tag line inquires whether it may be time to move out. (The parents bursting out laughing makes it a nice example of normalizing the older people's sexuality in spite of the embarrassment.)
  • One ad for a reverse mortgage features an adult woman visiting her parents and hearing her father complaining about his bad back. The daughter believes that his bad back is due to the stairs in the house and suggests that her parents downsize. Her mother responds: "It wasn't the stairs. Actually, we love the stairs." and maintains significant eye contact as her daughter shudders at the implications.

    Anime & Manga

  • Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!: Kiri and Yanagi catch the sight of their parents, Fujio and Tsuki, about to get it on. It traumatizes Kiri to the point that he's afraid to go home, and Yanagi warns their older sister Hana to stay away for a while.
  • Cesare - Il Creatore che ha distrutto: Despite his genre-savvyness, Cesare is understandably put out to learn about his father's May–December Romance with his childhood friend Giulia from Orsino, his cousin and her husband.

  • Jeff Foxworthy had a few short bits on the subjects. In one routine, Jeff recalls that when he first found out what the physical act of sex entailed, he couldn't imagine his parents doing that to each other.
    Jeff Foxworthy: I could never picture my mother screaming "give it up, you pot-bellied stallion!"
  • Comedian Christian Finnegan ends a bit on sex with the knowledge that your parents had sex. On a live recording, he goes into very explicit detail about making love with "your parents" as the subject. By the end, some audience members can be audibly heard begging him to stop.

    Comic Books 
  • Deadpool: Deadpool runs into this with his and Shiklah's daughter, Warda in the 2099 story. Warda hates her father but thinks highly of her mother.
    Warda: What did Shiklah ever see in you anyway?
    Deadpool: Well my nickname used to be The Merc with a Mouth, and let's just say I knew how to use it.
    Warda: You're a gross old man!!
  • Ms. Marvel: This is downplayed in Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit, as more Parental Affection Squick — in the first issue, Kamala finds her parents being mushy and affectionate to be very off-putting.
    Parental affection... it's almost enough to make me lose my appetite...
  • Spider-Girl: This is Mayday's reaction to hearing her mom's going to have another baby. Her thought process goes directly from "How could this happen?" to "EWWW!"
  • Spider-Man: In Superior Spider-Man, when Peter discovers he is able to rifle through Octavius's memories, he finds one of the night before Doc Ock's planned marriage to Aunt May (the plot of a real comic from 1973), and quickly tries to convince himself he hadn't.
  • Supergirl:
    • Supergirl (Rebirth): Downplayed. Supergirl really doesn't like hearing her foster parents flirt when she's around (or when she is not around — she can hear them from anywhere, literally). They are not concerned about her squicked reaction, though.
      Jeremiah: What I did miss?
      Edna: Just the launch, Jeremiah. But the new uniform sure fits.
      Supergirl: Comms are live. I can hear you two.
      Edna: We're your parents, Kara. We're not dead.
    • Many Happy Returns: Linda learns that her mother got pregnant. When their parents explain the hows and whys, she decides she did NOT need to know that.
      Linda: How did this happen?!
      Fred: What—
      Linda: Are you responsible for this?
      Fred: What the hell kind of question's that?
      Linda: Haven't you ever heard of protection?
      Fred: I had a gun nearby. Didn't help.
      Sylvia: Remember that afternoon you kind of surprised us, when your dad and I reconciled? Well, I think that's when...
      Linda: Oh, I SO don't need to hear that! Jeez, Ma, you're too old old to be having—
      Sylvia: Sex?
      Linda: I was gonna say "a baby", but yeah, the other thing, too.
  • Superman: Jon accidentally discovers that, apparently, Lois has kept Clark's very-revealing gladiator costume from Warworld (which looks suspiciously like a piece of Superman-inspired leather S&M gear) in her and Clark's bedroom closet, and is utterly mortified by the implications.
  • Tom Strong: The 26th issue has Tom's daughter Tesla Strong express disgust at the realization that her parents are having sex as they are returning to Earth.

    Comic Strips 
  • Inverted in 9 Chickweed Lane. Parents Amos and Edda discuss what their newborn children will think when they envision their parents having sex. "Can you for a moment imagine being our kids, thinking of us locked in an act of most private intimacy?" Apparently, imagining that turns them on.
  • FoxTrot had a story arc where Andy decided to discuss "the birds and the bees" with her teenage daughter Paige. Paige is shown to be incredibly uncomfortable, but one comic implies that it's because Andy keeps referencing her own relationship with husband Roger. ("So the boy might say 'C'mon, just one hickey'. That's what your father said...")
  • In Baby Blues, Zoe and Hammie have been known to act grossed out whenever they see Darryl and Wanda kiss, if only as a form of "entertainment." In one strip, when Darryl and Wanda catch Zoe and Hammie snickering as they kiss, Wanda asks them if they think it's funny when they kiss. Zoe replies no...just when they kiss each other.
  • Zits: A Running Gag is that fifteen-year-old Jeremy is never particularly thrilled when he sees his parents getting too openly intimate for his liking. In one memorable instance, Jeremy's mom Connie hears him playing "Stairway to Heaven" on his guitar, and he reveals that he's always liked the song but never quite knew why. Connie reveals that Jeremy was conceived to the song; cut to Jeremy washing his ears out with soap and water and wanting to boil his guitar strings. In the same story, Jeremy's best friend Hector reveals that his mom told him he was conceived while blueberry muffins burned in the oven; as a result, Hector can't even look at blueberry muffins without getting nauseous.
    • In one early strip, Jeremy accidentally walks in on Connie in the bathtub, causing him to let out a shriek. In a twist, he's less bothered by seeing his mom naked and more bothered that he Screams Like a Little Girl.

  • Alysanne, Lady of Winterfell: Alarra is perfectly okay with her father and Alysanne getting married, but she freaks out when Alysanne announces her pregnancy because it's clear evidence they are sleeping together.

  • Blanket: After Taylor heals the long-term effects of her dad's stroke, leaving her exhausted, she wakes up to find that neither of her parents is in the room — but she can hear both their voices from the direction of the shower, and promptly leaves the house in search of anything else to occupy her attention.
    "Ew, ew, ew, ew, ewwww."

  • The Booty Call: To remain blissfully ignorant, Ivy very much insists that no one in her family, including her parents, has ever had sex.
  • A Boy, a Girl and a Dog: The Leithian Script: Elves don't find discussions concerning sex inappropriate or squicky, not even when it's about family members' sex lives, and they find funny how humans make a big deal of it or how they react with shock about the fact that Elves celebrate conception days instead of birthdays.
  • In Daria fic Camera Obscure, by A.A. Pessimal, Quinn Morgendorffer is completely squicked out over her parents reviving a moribund sex life, and begs to spend the night sleeping in her sister's room. Daria pretends not to understand and makes her suffer before relenting.
    Daria: They're married. They got a licence to practice. Get over it.
  • Child of the Storm has Harry develop a subdued variant on this in regards to his father, Thor (formerly incarnated as James Potter) and Jane. He's happy that they're happy, once he gets used to Jane, but he doesn't want to know the details — though he does sometimes act oblivious to force his father to try and explain things, thus embarrassing himself.
  • The Dark Lords of Nerima: In the last chapter of the sequel, Sailor Pluto mentions that the new timeline they've created will result in Chibi-Usa being conceived sooner. She glances over at Mamoru and Usagi and winces at the thought.
  • Dating Advice, a Meet the Robinsons fanfic: Lewis ends up swapping dating stories with his Kid from the Future Wilbur and mentions that one of the girls he dated prior to Franny (Wilbur's mother) helped him realize how much he liked kids; Wilbur comments on how disturbing he finds that. Lewis points out that he needs to like kids for Wilbur to exist; Wilbur counters "There are many things necessary for my existence that I don't like to think about." Lewis can't respond because he's laughing so hard.
  • Describing The Series Via References features the main cast of RWBY reading their series' memes. Several of those memes relate to either how sexy their parents are, or the sexual escapades of Ruby and Yang's father. The characters are suitably mortified.
  • Dragon Ball Z Abridged: The Season 3 Epilogue has deleted scenes where Trunks talks to Bulma about how little she prepared him for Vegeta. She proceeds to, in this deleted scene, talk about how she and Vegeta had sex and Bulma went along with it.

    Trunks: [External] [Screaming]
  • A Few Needed Adjustments: Keisuke is uncomfortable hearing Kyubi describing his past affair with Fumi. By contrast, Natsume (who just learned Kyubi is her biological dad) is just bored:
    Kyubi: She was so much more polite, kind, and beautiful than any other lady.
    Keisuke: OK, I'm not listening to you gross people anymore.
    Kyubi: I didn't know she was married at first. I just saw, conquered, and came.
    Keisuke: OK, Natsume, I'm just going to bed, my fingers are not working.
  • Fifth Year Rebooted:
    Harry: Erm, one of the enchantments that aren't active anymore was… like… a contraceptive?
    Dudley: I don't want to think about my parents doing that!
    Harry: Me neither!

  • Hero Chat: The heroes discuss Hawkmoth having a bird kink after he Akumatizes Jagged Stone into the bird-themed "Canary", complete with Glam Rock makeup and fishnet stockings. Luka asks if they can kinkshame Hawkmoth another time since said Akuma was his dad, but to no avail.
  • How the Light Gets In:
    • Thea is horrified when she walks in on Dean about to go down on Laurel. They're both a Parental Substitute to her, so it counts as this. A thoroughly amused Sara then makes the situation even worse for Thea.
      Sara: It's been like half a year, dude. Of course they're gonna fuck tonight. Probably more than once. In different positions and everything.
      Thea: Oh, god. Please don't talk about them fucking in different positions.
      Sara: Okay, they'll just stay in the one position.
      Dean: Did you think we were sexless beings?
      Thea: Yes!
      Dean: Oh. Right. Well, okay then. You're right. We don't have sex. In fact, we're virgins. Mary was an immaculate conception. Better?
    • Sara then starts to talk about the time she walked in on her parents having sex, only to be cut off by Laurel
      Laurel: Oh, please don't tell the hide and seek story again. I want to have sex tonight. I don't want to think about my parents.
      Sara: Eh, point taken.
  • Just The Three Of Us, an Amphibia fic, has Anne dealing with this in her twenties when she and her girlfriends Sasha and Marcy accidentally get some of her parents 'private photos' mixed in with some Halloween stuff. This trope is not helped out by the fact that Sasha and Marcy think Anne's mom's still pretty hot, so Anne's both mortified by seeing her mom in sexy poses for her father and by Sasha calling her mom a 'caramel milf-shake'.
  • Kris Performs Surgery: In episode 101, Carci mentions that Optica (the Anthropomorphic Personification of Rudy's frontal lobe) is forced to watch all of Rudy's repressed memories. When Rudy questions this, Carci gives "the time you walked in on your parents making you a baby bro when you were four" as an example, horrifying Rudy.
    Rudy: ...I did not need to be reminded of that.
  • The Legend of Link: Lucky Number 13:
    • Link — using his godly insight — accidentally witnesses his parents having sex in a bathroom.
      Link: Today's life lesson: seeing your parents have sex is gross, even if you're a god.
    • Later lampshaded by Fate:
      Fate: ... and children, lest you want to see your mothers naked, I'd turn away.
  • Lord Potter's Own Will:
    Harry: My Dad is such a perv. Can't portrait people shag other portraits?
    Sirius: I've no idea, why don't you ask your Mum or Dad when we get home?
    Harry: Oh, hell no. Look, in my mind they only did it once, and that was to have me. No one should ever think about their parents shagging!
  • Love Isn't What You Always Think It Is:
    Snape: True. We have had some epic fights. I think the longest we went without speaking to each other was a week and it only lasted that long because someone was hurt and unconscious. I did thank you properly for quitting after that?
    Harry: Yes, you did. Once I recovered, I believe you prescribed three more days of bed rest and we didn't do much resting.
    Septimus: Ohhhh yuck, so didn't need to hear that. It's bad enough watching the two of you kissing but to hear you discussing that. Sorry, my parents are virgins.
  • In Mass Effect: End of Days, a human boy born to an Alliance AI and a human (It Makes Sense in Context) hears his mother discussing sexuality with Legion. Reaction... predictable.
  • In a Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers fanfic, set in the future, the original Rangers are now middle-aged, and their children are serving as Rangers. Kimberly is married to Rocky. They have seven children, including a set of twins. The oldest, 18-year-old Billy, finds out that the original Billy (now deceased) is his actual father, and Rocky isn't. In the end, that makes him feel relieved. Why? Because now he can imagine that Kimberly and Rocky have had sex only five times, instead of six.
  • Multiversal Constants being an Alternate Dimension fanfic, it gives Jon and Damian the opportunity to react like this.
    • Jon actually was a huge Shipper on Deck for his (alternate-future) parents, but when they finally get together and Conner jokes about Jon's counterpart being born nine months later, his reaction is a big pile of NOPE.
    • To explain how wrong he finds alternate Dick crushing on Zatanna — who's MUCH older in his home dimension — Damian says it would be like his eldest brother was dating his mother.
  • In My Old Kentucky Home Pandora Lovegood has an encounter with Narcissa Malfoy after feeding her marijuana brownies.
    Lily: Well as long as you didn't catch anything.
    Pandora: She is very careful and I made certain I was as well.
    Harry: Can we not talk about that. Parent sex is not cool.
  • Naru-Hina Chronicles: In Chapter 96, Naruto stumbles upon one of his dad's equipment satchels, which contains pictures of Minato and Kushina together... along with a picture of his mother naked. He's understandably mortified at the last one.
  • In The Official Fanfiction University Of Middle-earth, Legolas doesn't want to hear about his parents' romantic escapades.
    "Is it any wonder we get written as bunnies, doing everyone at every opportunity?" Legolas said darkly. To his amazement, his father only smiled.
    "Alas, they do not realise that since we do not arrange marriages among Elves and marry only when we are most certain it is love, we like to enjoy the rewards of such a strong love. Your mother and I have enjoyed..."
    This time, Legolas put his own hands over his ears and blocked the rest of the sentence out. Some things were the same, be you Elf, Human or Balrog. There were mental images concerning your parents that just weren't right.
  • In The Official Fanfiction University of Redwall, when the infamous "Of Warlords and Pleasures" fics come to the staff's attention, Veil Sixclaw is subject to this despite the Swartt Sixclaw fic being the least bad of the bunch.
  • This parody of The Owl House has Amity discovering a hickey on her mother's neck, to which the twins quickly put two and two together; Amity is mortified, Edric is disgusted, but Emira is hopeful that they might get another sibling.
  • Path Of Needles: Sarada is grossed out when her parents reveal that they're having another baby. She thought they were "too old" to still be having sex, despite that Sasuke and Sakura are only thirty-three.
  • In Pokémon fanfics that feature IronShipping (Byron/Riley), it is common for Roark, Byron's son, to express horror, shock, or disgust at the thought of his father and Riley (who is usually depicted as his childhood friend) sleeping together.
    • In One Stressful Week in Sunyshore, after learning about Riley's crush on Byron, Roark goes home and promptly has a nightmare where he walks in on the two of them having sex and completely loses it.
      Riley: Only seventeen years!
    • In That's Why I Love You, Byron prepares a Valentine's Day gift for Roark and another for Riley, but gets the packages mixed up, resulting in Riley receiving a bag of candy and a stuffed Cranidos, while Roark gets a box containing imported dark chocolate and a man thong. He is not happy when he finds out who it's for.
      Byron: (over the phone, as Roark is screaming in horror) Would you calm down already? Look, I'll come get 'em myself Monday and bring your gift with me.
      Roark: I want twice as much candy for the psychological damage.
      Byron: I'll give you psychological damage!
  • Raz seems to find Milla and Sasha being affectionate with one another rather exasperating in Razputin Vodello AU.
  • Played with in Recovery None as Church and Tex aren't Carolina's parents but are AI based off them. While fusing back together, they sound like they're having sex. Because Church was still connected to the comms system, that meant poor Carolina heard every detail. When Tex confirms that she and Church had sex (or the closest thing to it for an AI), Carolina is visibly queasy and nearly throws up.
  • In Rising Heat by Solcane (NSFW), Adrien, when speaking to his father, keeps remembering how him and Marinette had Their First Time during a class tour. It's a rather embarrassing case of arousal he struggles to keep hidden... until Gabriel drops a few words implying Adrien was conceived during a similar trip, and possibly even at the same place.
  • In one episode of Sailor Moon Abridged, Serena, after being drained and trapped by a monster, awakes (naked for some reason) in a mental world with Luna. Believing she's dead (and therefore free from being Sailor Moon), she hugs Luna in joy, just as Queen Serenity shows up, leading to this conversation:
    Queen Serenity: Hello, my daughter!
    Serena: Mom, it's not what you think!
    Queen Serenity: No, trust me, I get it; we each have our own kinks. I remember when your father....
    Serena: Mom, I've had enough emotional scarring for one day!
  • Sakamoto vs. Takamaki has Jean Takamaki (Ann and Shiho's son born from insemination) invoke this on Natsumi Sakamoto (Ryuji and Hifumi's daughter) to get her to stop attacking him, by pointing out that since Natsumi's birthday is exactly nine months after Ryuji's birthday, she was essentially conceived as her father's birthday present, much to her horror. Unfortunately for him, it only lasts a few times before he jokes that she wore ribbons in her hair as a kid because she was her dad's birthday present, leading her to punch him in the face and runs off. He admits to a confused Yoshio Sakamoto that he had that coming.
  • In Scorpius Malfoy and the Unwanted Attraction Scorpius is firmly convinced that his parents had sex only once, to consummate the marriage, and then conceived him via some vague magical process involving separate rooms.
  • The Secret Return of Alex Mack: Alex is incredibly grossed out when her mother mentions using a diaphragm. Given Alex's novel biochemistry, though, it's important to consider her contraceptive options...
  • In The Shoebox Project, the Marauders get The Talk. James gets it from his mom while his dad gives it to Sirius, and they argue over who had the worse experience.
    "She spoke about her and my dad and — you know."
    "Oh God." Sirius peeks out from behind the curtain. "You win."
  • Soda at 70 Proof; Rachel gets grossed out when her parents tell her about how her mother Experimented in College:
    Dad: Cut your mother some slack. She means well. There was that whole phase she went through in college…
    Rachel: Uh, la la la la la.
    Dad: Heh, sorry. It's just that seeing her all over that other girl made me realize how jealous I was and how much I loved her.
    Rachel: Ew! Can you censor yourself? Censor yourself in front of your daughter? Please?
  • Son of the Sannin: When Kurama is explaining to Naruto why he fears being sealed in the Gedo Mazo statue so much, he tells Naruto to imagine if someone tried to shove him back in his mother's womb, a comparison that makes Naruto scream in disgust.
  • Inverted and Played for Drama in Strategy Sets the Scene for the Tale with Alicent Hightower, in order to show how deeply repressed and smothering she is. Being horrified by your son cheating on his fiancée with prostitutes might be justified, but feeling disgusted because your son has consensual, loving sex with his bride on their wedding night certainly isn't.
  • Superman: House of El: Kara notes the importance of it when time-traveling Cir-El responds with "Ew" when Clark and Lana are "having a moment." The implication is that the Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex problem has been better solved in the future. When we get a glimpse at Cir-El's future, both she and her half-brother Jonathan are slightly grossed out by how affectionate their parents are.
  • Til Death Do Us Part:
    • Ash faints when he realizes what really occurred prior to a video-phone call he once gave. He remembers thinking it was weird that Professor Oak was wearing a bathrobe in the middle of the day and he swears he heard his mother's voice in the background. After the two reveal that they're a couple, Ash recognizes that he caught the two after having sex. He then faints again when Delia shows off her wedding ring.
    • Ash has a mixed reaction to the news his mom and step-dad are having a baby. It's largely due to this but also partially due to jealousy.
    • While not outright disgusted, Ash's younger half-sister Laurel gets embarrassed when she comes across her elderly parents getting ready to have sex. She promptly exits the house with her boyfriend.
  • Unchained zigzags with the trope. Uchiha Tajima is pretty chill when his daughter decides to steal a man for herself and Senju Toka mercilessly teases her younger cousin over his sex life, but Izuna's brothers are horrendously awkward and embarrassed by every reminder of their sister's marriage.
  • In Unexpected Surprise:
    • When Adrien tells Nino and Alya about him and Marinette using condoms which were already inside the room, Nino points out that, since the apartment used to be his mother's, they must have been intended for... at which point Adrien asks him not to go there.
    • Emma, when she sees Adrien kissing her mommy's neck, acts disgusted... and points out that when a guy wants a girl to like him, he's supposed to kiss her lips.
  • Us and Them: Aeris does not want to think about her parents doing the deed, at all.
    • Her response after getting the haul of sexy items that were foisted on her by a bridal goods shop ready to take back and realizing Ifalna kept one pair of black panties: "Eww."
    • After she laments how hard it must have been for her parents after she and Seph got married, he points out to Aeris (who has just given birth), that since her mother is as far along as she is, they probably had other things on their minds. Aeris promptly buries her head under the covers and starts singing until he stops.
  • White Sheep (RWBY):
    • Salem, immortal Queen of the Grimm, is absolutely shameless about her active love life, to the horror of all her children. Poor Cinder probably has it the worst. Since she's an adopted daughter, Salem keeps trying to set her up with her son Jaune, and giving very specific instructions on how she should seduce him.
    • Taiyang, Ruby's father, happily relates a story about how his teammates Raven and Summer made out on a dare. The problem is that Raven was Tai's first wife and Yang's mother, while Summer was Tai's second wife and Ruby's mother.
    • Kali and Ghira, Blake's parents, apparently have an active sex life they make no effort to hide. Blake is especially embarrassed when her mother assumes that the bell collar Blake is wearing is a sex thing.
  • Messages for Dad: Inverted; all the Primarchs, and the Emperor, are increasingly disturbed and grossed out whenever the Tapes (which show recordings a future timeline including the Primarch's children) show Rosalina, the Slaaneshi daemonhost. Rosalina being the future version of Rosie, Fulgrim's three-year-old daughter is major reason why.

    Films — Animated 
  • A kid-friendly version in The Emperor's New Groove is used by Pacha and Chicha to get their kids to go to bed:
    Pacha: Oh, you two can stay up. We're just gonna be sitting here talking about how much we love each other. (snuggles Chicha) Right, honey?
    Chicha: [grins and flutters her eyelashes at him.]
    Chaca: Ew!
    Tipo: Bleah!
    Both: Good night! [run off to bed]
  • Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation: When Mavis is startled by the thought of her father dating again, Johnny admits that he still closes his eyes anytime his parents kiss.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • Attenberg. Marina has a conversation with her father where she muses that she'd prefer to think of him without a penis. However her father is terminally ill, so she arranges for her Really Gets Around friend to provide Sex for Solace, but makes it clear this is one sexual conquest she doesn't want to hear about afterwards.
  • Baby Boy: In one of the funniest scenes in the movie, Jody is grossed out and can't sleep because his mom and her boyfriend are having sex—very loudly—in the other room. And they're not just moaning but describing everything they're doing, giving Jody plenty of visuals he could have done without.
  • Better Than Chocolate: Maggie and Paul both look embarrassed when their mom Lila mentions her sex life (or the lack thereof).
  • Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure uses the "give him money to go get himself ice cream while we do it" variant. Also gives Ted a way to annoy Bill over the Age-Gap Romance between Bill's dad and a girl just three years older than Bill himself.

Bea is sheepish for bare moments before flirting with him again, forcing Ciri to resort to I'm Standing Right Here to get her to back off.
    • After they leave the tavern and are out of Bea's earshot, Geralt twists the knife by turning the tables on Ciri and teasing her about her friendliness with Bea, saying that Bea "seems nice"; Ciri wearily says Geralt's terrible.
