  • Basic Trope: A food item is consumed in a suggestive manner
  • Played Straight: Alice eats a banana, but she is licking and sucking on it instead of biting into it normally.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Alice sticks the banana as far back in her mouth as it will go, and she is thrusting the banana in and out of her mouth.
    • Alternatively, EVERYONE on the show eats food in a suggestive and arousing manner
  • Justified: Alice is a prostitute trying to solicit customers.
  • Inverted:
  • Subverted:
    • Alice eats a banana suggestively in front of Bob, but he is disgusted with her for doing so.
    • Alice picks a banana out of a bowl of fruit, as the guys in the room stare expectantly. Alice peels the banana and...proceeds to eat it normally. Disappointed, the guys turn back to whatever it was they were doing.
  • Double Subverted: Onscreen Alice looks like she's about Erotic Eating but instead she gorges herself messily on a heaped table full of food. But then it turns out that she knew this was Bob's fetish all along.
  • Parodied:
    • Alice tries to deep-throat the banana and chokes or throws up as a result.
    • Bob actually has a fetish for Alice eating pretty much anything, even in a non-sexual manner. So now he's staring creepily at her while she's eating something entirely innocent, like potato chips.
  • Deconstructed: Alice does this because she wants attention.
  • Reconstructed: Alice realizes she's getting the wrong kind of attention, and stops doing this. Unless she's in the bedroom with her love interest, who likes to see Alice do this (before moving onto the real thing.)
  • Zig Zagged: Sometimes Alice eats suggestively, sometimes she does not.
  • Averted:
    • Alice does not eat anything even vaguely phallic.
    • Alice has a banana but eats it like a normal person would.
  • Enforced: Fan Service
  • Lampshaded: "Yeah, Alice! Suck that banana!"
  • Invoked: Alice picks up a banana, and all the guys in the room stare.
  • Defied:
    • Alice eats normally, because she doesn't want a guy who's only interested in sex.
    • Alice will not eat anything even vaguely phallic, just to be safe.
    • Alice starts eating a Banana this way. Noticing the attention she's getting, she looks around, smiles sweetly, and then violently bites it. Cue all the guys wincing and going back to whatever they were doing.
  • Discussed: Do the girls eating the ice cream cones in this MusicVideo remind you of anything?
  • Conversed: Yes. Yes, they do.
  • Played For Laughs:
  • Played For Drama: One day Alice eats a banana in a suggestive manner. Bob, who sees it, isn't aroused, but seriously squicked, because he suddenly envisions his penis being bitten off. He starts having problems in bed, seeks therapy. Somehow Alice finds out and feels guilty. Unfortunately, then she's easily manipulated by Bob's conservative family into blaming herself for being such a shameless sex-obsessed hussy, whose indecent behavior ruined Bob's life.

Sometimes a banana is just a banana. Other times, it's not.
