File:Pillowfight 350px 9150.jpg


Monica: When women hang out, we don't have pillow fights in our underwear.

Chandler: (doubled over in shock)

Monica: I'm sorry, we do. We do! I don't know why I said that.

A gathering of female characters in a not particularly serious battle or physical challenge for purposes of titillation. Often, literally, a pillow fight (i.e., at a Slumber Party) but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

If it actually involves pillows, the chances of said pillows breaking apart and covering the place with their stuffing is fairly high.

Examples of Pillow Fight include:


Advertising

  • A promo for the Australian version of Beauty and the Geek featured a pillow fight between the beauties and the geeks. The beauties, of course, were clad in lingerie.


Anime & Manga


Comedy

 "I've codified the five different types of pillow fights:

Man vs Woman: fun

Woman vs. Woman: awesome

Man vs. Man: gay

Man vs. Pillow: crazy, and

Pillow vs. Pillow: Crazy Awesome."
