“I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once and the seat folded up”

"I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once and the seat folded up” is a jocular saying that has been cited in print since at least September 2000, when it was included in a joke list. “I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once, the seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well it really chilled her mood” was posted to the newsgroup alt.culture.hawaii on August 15, 2001.

The joke has been printed on several images.

“There is nothing wrong with sex on television as long as you don’t fall off” is a similar sex joke.
