• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A character (male or female) possesses In-Universe extraordinary prowess in giving physical sexual pleasure to his/her partner(s). A soft caress on the cheek from such a person can leave the subject a flustered bundle of sexual excitement, a body massage under their hands would be a heavenly experience, while the luckier ones who get to bed this character would most probably be in for the most intensely multi-orgasmic night they've ever had in their lives.

The reasons behind said prowess varies. Sometimes it's simply due to knowing "how to touch them right", sometimes it's through special sex techniques, sometimes it's by knowing how to make the best out of a larger than average tool, and sometimes it might be actual Magic. The Power Perversion Potential for this ability should be very obvious, assuming that it isn't itself a result of Power Perversion Potential. This an almost mandatory part of a Horny Devil's inventory of abilities. Many pornographic works tend to depict their male characters as this; for live-action ones, this would be an Informed Ability, given that they don't actually do anything "special" on-screen.

Note: This trope is neither tied to a specific gender nor tied to a specific sexual orientation. Also, being able to do one or two "tricks" to get one's partner hit the O-zone does not qualify for this trope. The character is supposed to be (hailed as) a veritable expert in carnal delights, not a "one-trick pony".

Memetic Sex God is the Memetic Mutation counterpart of this trope, where the fandom perceives the character as being this, regardless of evidence for or against - if said evidence even exists. May serve as a justification for the attractiveness behind the Chick Magnet/Hello, Nurse!, the Pornomancer, or the Kavorka Man.

Not to be confused with an actual deity of sexual activity, though due to their particular domain, they often are Sex Gods by necessity.

Compare with the Casanova, who has high prowess/skill in seduction rather than sexual pleasure; of course, being a consistently successful Casanova would usually require being a Sex God, too.

Examples of Sex God include:

Anime & Manga

  • Black Butler - Because he's a demon disguised in the form his master ordered him to (a polite butler), Sebastian interrogates a cult member... very convincingly.

 Woman: I can see the Gates of Heaven!

Sebastian: (unamused) Oh I highly doubt that.

    • Played with in the Film and TV series pilot. In the film Chiun claims to know the pressure points to bring a woman to Nirvana. When Remo asks him what they are, he shows Remo how to tap his wrist with a regular beat. Remo asks if that's the first point, Chiun says "No, that is how you know when the rice is done." and removes the rice that had been cooking off the burner. In the TV pilot, Remo tries the wrist-tapping on a woman and asks her if it does anything for her. It doesn't.

Apparently it's a feature of the species.

She is also so skilled at seduction that she can easily manipulate men into doing her bidding.

Video Games

  • In Dragon Age II, Isabela claims to be so good in bed, she can turn even the straightest woman lesbian/bisexual.

  • El Chupacabra in Girly possesses legendary skills to please any woman (and practically every woman) he ever faces. The action itself is never shown, but the immediate aftermath, quite a lot. Generally the ladies are barely able to walk from all the fun their nerves had.
