This couple is having sex. That couple is having sex. And that couple is having sex, too. And a few other couples are having sex, maybe. Usually all at once, but not necessarily. Usually not an orgy. The narrative goes from couple to couple to couple, and sometimes singles and threesomes.

This trope can also be a tool to emphasize the one person or couple who is not having sex — or the one person / couple engaging in very vigorous and regular sex. May be used to contrast how Good People Have Good Sex with how Bad People... don't.

    Comic Books 
  • Red Ears: One comic shows a montage of couples having sex around the globe, except for the last one.

    Fan Works 
  • In the Parody Fic Hardcore Entertainment presents: Seven Does Voyager, the captain of Voyager finally authorises everyone other than the Official Couple to have sex. Coitus Ensues.
    We see a montage of shots from throughout the ship. Everywhere - in turbolifts, in Jeffries tubes, in shuttles and photon torpedo launchers, on Bridge consoles and Sickbay beds and by the throbbing phallic heights of the pulsating warp core - the crew are fucking like they haven't had sex in seven years. Raven-haired Bajoran Maquis are rubbing their crinkled noses along the steaming slits of beautiful Suxfleet blondes. Tall handsome analysts are servicing the needs of muscle-bound security officers. A daisy chain of thirty female ensigns stretches from Main Engineering to Deflector Control, supervised by an equal number of masturbating male crewmen.

  • Delicatessen features one of these wherein only one couple is actually having sex, but the activities of everyone else in the apartment building sync up to the same ever-quickening rhythm. The couple is the Butcher and his mistress. It's to show how everyone in the building is dancing to his rhythm, as it were.
  • Suite 16 at one point intersperses a montage of one of the main characters having sex with a variety of prostitutes whilst the other one watches him do so on a hidden camera. It's... a pretty creepy film.
  • Salige Er De Som Torster', a norwegian thriller, has an opening that cuts back and forth between two sex scenes (one straight and one lesbian, the later one with the heroine) and the brutal rape that starts of the central plot of the movie.
  • One of many porno movies called Sugar Pussy about two white blonde lesbians and two uncut Latino men who abduct three blonde white women.
  • Friends with Benefits: When Jamie and Dylan first start with their arrangement.
  • Seducing Dr Lewis has one to show how the entire little fishing village used to have good sex when the fishing was still strong and plentiful.
  • A sex montage makes up about a third of the Greek slasher film Razor.
  • There's a hilariously raunchy one in Deadpool, as Wade and his girlfriend Vanessa have holiday sex throughout the year— all set to Neil Sedaka's "Calendar Girl". Valentine's Day, naturally, is played straight, but after that:

    Literature 
  • At least two passages in Gravity’s Rainbow feature a panorama of random sex acts. Probably more squick than sexy, however.
  • House of Leaves features a brief part where Johnny reviews a list of his friend Lude's sexcapades of the past month, many of which involve some rather eyebrow-raising activities (golden showers, wetsuits, threesomes, etc). However, Johnny immediately deconstructs this trope by mentally giving each girl a tragic backstory (abortions, rape, Parental Incest, prostitution, etc.) It's that kind of book.
  • Used in Best Served Cold, in a scene that initially looks like estranged lovers Shivers and Monza patching things up, but slowly reveals that they're not having sex with each other.

    Live Action TV 
  • Season 7 of Sons of Anarchy features one so long that it actually got complaints from parents groups saying it was inappropriate for children. The group never explained why any child would be watching a show as violent as Sons of Anarchy, particular season 7.
  • Big Love (a couple times, at least)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer did this in season 7, except with one of the couples (Buffy and Spike) very pointedly not having sex. Buffy was still recovering from Spike's Attempted Rape the previous year. They do Security Cling however.
  • The opening ten minutes of the first episode of Dante's Cove.
  • This is how Glee shot Like a Virgin in the Madonna Episode, with three couples. Until it turns out to only be a shared fantasy between the three virgins, and only one of the couples actually has sex.
  • Queer as Folk All the time.
  • The L Word (season 5 Liquid Heat)
  • The TV movie The Rat Pack has a humorous take on this, showing the hotel rooms of the members of the titular group in sequence (made easier by the simple mechanic of giving them rooms in a vertical stack so all the camera has to do is a slow pan up the building). The activities depicted within become increasingly risque up to the penultimate shot of Frank Sinatra with two women... with the final shot showing Dean Martin sitting up in bed, alone, quietly reading a newspaper and drinking a glass of milk.
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager did a strange variant of this with the main female characters going solo night after night. They got bored of it within a week.
  • Sex and the City (Season 4, What's Sex Got to Do with It?) Charlotte's having great sex with her ex-husband, Carrie's having great sex with a guy with ADHD, Samantha's having great lesbian sex, and Miranda is eating junk food and watching television.
  • A run-of-the-mill episode of General Hospital ended like this—two couples reconciling after an estrangement, one celebrating their engagement, and for another two couples, it was simply a nice way to cap off a lovely day.
  • A similar episode on One Life to Live. What's touching is that one of the couples in question didn't have sex. She was still recovering from her rape and so they settled for snuggling together.
  • The Affair: When Noah is seperated from his wife at the end of season 1, he's shown hooking up with a number of women in quick succession.
  • In Antonia's Line, Danielle's falling in love with Ms. Anderson is followed by the narrator saying "and then love burst out all over", followed by a montage of all the couples in the house humping away.
  • Rome. Julius Caesar has sex with Cleopatra while his soldiers fight off a hostile crowd outside, intercut with Servilia having sex with Octavia back in Rome.
  • 7 Yüz: The episode "Eşitlik" begins with a montage of men masturbating with enthusiasm to the same amateur sex tape (as well as three college-aged women, who are hate-watching it with pointed disgust).

    Music 
  • mothy's The Lunacy of Duke Venomania from the Evillious Chronicles has the titular duke sleeping with several women he brainwashed into his harem. Its PV shows several (censored) images of him having sex with the individual women during each chorus.
  • After an entire video full of incredibly blatant Visual Innuendo, Hot Action Cop's Fever for the Flava climaxes with apparently the whole city getting it on at once.

    Theater 
  • Avenue Q: You Can Be as Loud as the Hell You Want (When You're Making Love)
  • RENT: "Contact", which was obviously cut out of the movie version.
  • Danced around (literally) in Company's "Tick-Tock": all the couples can be heard but not seen.

    Webcomics 
  • Ménage à 3 features a lot of sex and occasional montages, if not perhaps a huge number fitting this trope's definition. A notably kinky instance, though, is the April 16, 2016 strip, which illustrates the development of Peggy's kink-heavy relationship with Gary.
  • Toward the end of the "Behind Closed Doors" storyline of Penny and Aggie, there's a montage of what Stan and Michelle, as well as various plot-unimportant couples, are thinking about.
