Sexual situations and titillation that poke fun at the foibles and weaknesses of human sexuality, are a common theme, rather than to present sexual stimulation either excitingly or artistically. Ribaldry may also use sex as a metaphor to illustrate some non-sexual matters, a form of of satire. Ribaldry depends on commonly a shared background of sexual conventions and values, and makes comedy of seeing those conventions broken.

This depiction of taboo-breaking in ribaldry makes it controversial and sometimes leads to its censorship.
