5 Outrageous and Unexpected Moments of Sexual Innuendo on TV

by | 16th, January 2014

THERE HAS BEEN plenty of blatant sex on the television in decades past.  Shows such as Benny Hill and Three’s Company weren’t afraid to show the playful side, while soap operas and gritty crime dramas took a more serious bent.  But naughtiness belonged in those places; it didn’t need to be masked.  In this article I’m talking about when they unexpectedly lay it between the lines in the most outrageous manner possible.  The kind that leaves you asking, “Wait what just happened?”

However, we must to be careful, or else we’re seeing phallic references around every corner…




As much as I’d like to believe there is some hidden sexual meaning in this Wonder Woman episode, more than likely she is just disarming a bomb and nothing more.  Just as Freud said, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”, sometimes a shaft with pulsating tip is just a shaft with pulsating tip…. that a beautiful woman must stroke and yank.

With our top five, there can be no room for doubt…

This is from the Star Trek episode still is from the episode What Are Little Girls Made Of? (1966)

Kirk is pursued by Ted Cassidy in the caves of planet EXO-III.  Ever the resourceful Starfleet captain, he breaks away an obviously Styrofoam stalactite.   As luck would have it, the broken cave rock looks remarkably like a giant stone sex organ.

Normally, I’m open to the possibility of coincidence.  However, this stalactite bears a more than passing resemblance to the male genitalia. Methinks there was an inside joke on the Star Trek set that they hoped audiences wouldn’t pick up on.

I’m willing to let a certain degree of implied lesbian shenanigans slide in the name of cheeky slapstick.  God knows, it happened frequently on the show (recall the episode where the girls think they’re going to die in a plane crash, so Shirley grabs Laverne and plants a passionate kiss full on the mouth).  However, this one pushes that envelope to the point where there can no longer be any doubt:  Laverne and Shirley are lovers, and they like it rough.

Nothing wrong with that.  Just so we’re clear.



Bewitched (42)


In the Bewitched episode The Eight Year Itch Witch (1971) the always hateful Endora summons Ophelia (Julie Newmar) to tempt Darrin.  Ophelia has a habit of turning into a cat now and then. Coincidentally, Darrin and Larry are seeking out a spokeswoman for Tomcat Tractors.  Graphic depictions of oral sex ensue…
