Long post incoming
I've always wanted to try something. I'm going to start at the home page and click Random until I hit a sex/fetish trope and catalog what I find along the way. I don't expect to go more than 5 tropes at a time.
Attempt 1: Minigame Game, a trope which basically is the category to put games in when all their content consists of minigames, like Mario Party or Rhythm Heaven or Warioware. Of course, the first sentence of the description is
Unexpected Gameplay Change is a trope that describes what happens when you're playing a game and all of a sudden it switches to a completely different style, like playing a shooter and there's a racing level for some reason. Apparently tropers can't read, that's not really the type of thing you can have an opposite of.
The opposite of Unexpected Gameplay Change.
Clicking Random again brought me to A Real Man Pees Standing Up, so game over.
seeing another man's penis turns you gay links to sarcasm mode
You have to isolate your character from the other characters, so you have him go to the bathroom. Since he's male, he just has to unzip his pants. This helps because seeing another man's penis turns you gay. Why do men in real life pee standing up? Freud would say it's the first conscious expression of a boy's masculinity. In any case, men tend to pee standing up, both in visual media and literature. Some other things at work here:
So the title doesn't really have anything to do with what the trope's about. Good to know.
Seriously, what does "It is not acceptable Ho Yay for two men to, in a restroom, be any closer than the maximum distance of the given situation. Also, two men must not be adjacent." even mean? That two guys shouldn't stand right next to each other at the urinals? Why is that first sentence even there?
Attempt 2: First up we have Munchausen Syndrome.
Munchausen Syndrome is a psychological disorder that causes people to feign illness for attention. They often do this by poisoning themselves or hurting themselves in order to actually appear to have symptoms.
Followed by My Sister Is Off Limits.
Nothing creepy here! It's so unfair that Jerk Jock won't let me near his sister!
Charlie is attracted to Alice, and she shares his feelings. Unfortunately, Alice is Bob's sister, and Bob and Charlie are the closest of friends. As such, Charlie feels it's wrong for him to date Alice, no matter how much he wants to.
Oh yeah, it's a fetish trope I guess. I kind of want to make it past the second try here tvtropes, let me view more of your wiki!
Note that while the title says 'sister', this includes mothers, brothers, cousins, and even more extended family. Except daughters, because Overprotective Dad already covers that. Exes fall under The Bro Code instead.
Attempt 3: First try: Hot Amazon. Dammit.
Attempt 4: Alas, Poor Scrappy
I never thought I would be sad at someone dying in my animes but this person dying was really sad and I cried and I am a special snowflake pay attention to me pay attention TO ME PAY ATENTION TO ME PAY ATTENTION TO ME
So, that character that nobody likes is finally going to be killed off! This is the moment you thought you'd be rejoicing. Yet... the death scene is so well done that you actually find yourself feeling sad! Expect to read a lot of messageboard posts saying "I never thought I'd cry at X's death, but I was bawling so loud I woke the neighbors."
Those are some...interesting revenge fantasies you have there.
Keep in mind that this is obviously Truth in Television. No matter how many times that jerkass jerk jock stuffed you in a locker and gave you a wedgie, if he is hit by a drunk driver on the way to prom, your remembrances will almost certainly be favorably tinged. Unless you're just that evil or mentally/emotionally unsound.

Next is Polished Port, a trope that basically says "well some ports are bad but some are good and some others take the original and make it better". Never mind that adding enough features to make a game better than the original would be an updated release, not just a straight port.
Followed up by The Gift, which is an anime trope that deals with how any time a student is gifted they're heaped with praise but are always evil. Because it's pretty out of the ordinary for the main character to be the gifted individual with a special talent for whatever and those guys are always evil. Jesus, that took me 5 minutes, and 4 minutes and 55 seconds of them were copy pasting the links. You can literally disprove this trope by typing "anime where the main character is gifted" into google. But since this is tvtropes, there's no such thing as notability, so let's just make tropes for everything!
Does X happen? It's a trope.
Does X not happen? It's a trope.
Moving on, I got Spell My Name with a "The". This one is interesting because the entire description (minus the quote, which actually explains what the trope means) consists of
Some people want to catalog the entire world into a series of tropes. Avoid these people.
Some people want you to put a "The" before their name. Avoid these people.
Next, Big Little Brother.
Most of the time when someone says "younger sibling" you think of someone smaller but sometimes that doesn't happen and this is a trope.
When someone mentions his or her “little brother”, you usually expect a smaller, weaker individual, most likely a child or teenager. The big little brother is the polar opposite of this. It’s someone who may be the youngest member of his family, but just so happens to be stronger, taller and overall more physically impressive than his older siblings. The revelation of this usually comes as a surprise to both the audience and the characters in a story. This trope is usually used for comical effect.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS NOTABILITY. I take it back, bring on the porn tropes, I don't think I can take much more of this.
Moving on, Finger Suck Healing.
In Japanese media, one of the characters may get their finger hurt (most likely when preparing food). Another character will then come in and suck on the wound in order for the finger to heal better. Expect the person having their finger sucked to blush and act embarassed by this physical intimacy.
Konoka: Maybe I can make it better by licking it. *suckle suckle*
Why did I ever think this would be a good idea?
Fake edit: they have a page for Agony in Pink
It has one review, which boils down to "This is totally disgusting but it's not all bad. I mean yeah it's a 16,000 word story about the pink power ranger being tortured to death but it's really well written and the parts where she's not getting tortured are written really well!" It also includes
"I definitely don't get off to this but, uh, if I did it's written really well"
The writing can be appreciated even if you're not a fan of guro (I'm not)

Keep up the reivisionism Tomu! The TVTropes ministry of truth was always at war with Somethingawful and Triple Elations was always a GOOOOOOOOON
Don't address me-I take a non-stance on whether banning people over exporting/importing Drama is a good stance to have.
Hey, don't get mad at me! I don't claim to take sides here because I'm neutral. Besides, you know, constantly sucking up in every post I make. Heh, if you got banned it's your own fault because I warned you.
Also that last part is the most non-statement I have ever seen. People are more willing to make some noise over things they're invested in? that's like saying "Someone who is depressed is less happy than someone who isn't depressed".

This person is literally saying they don't agree with a decision to not host content that deals with the sexualization of minors.
This person, on a public forum, posted that he or she thinks that just because a work depicts minors in a sexual way as a focus for itself does not mean that the work was intended to appeal to pedophiles.
Who the gently caress else is it appealing to? The huge sexually active 6 - 16 year olds market that doesn't actually exist outside of your head, you sick gently caress? Not to mention how completely illegal that is in pretty much every country in the world.
