* Averted in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. A [[{{Asexuality}} drastically reduced sex drive]] is one of the potential side-effects of the [[{{SuperSoldier}} Spartan-II augmentations]], enhanced by [[{{ConsummateProfessional}} their particular mind-set]]. Their Spartan-III & Spartan-IV counterparts lack the side effect, though the III's have the same single-minded focus on their work as the II's.

* Averted in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. John 117 is a SuperSoldier who literally [[{{Asexuality}} has no sex drive]]. [[{{Squick}} Physically lacking of a biological sex drive]]. The Spartans were surgically altered so that the gland that would produce those hormones instead mixes a chemical cocktail of useful adrenals and other chemicals into their blood.

** When Dean first learns that Castiel is a virgin, he decided that ''apocalypse'' could wait until Cas has that particular problem fixed. Of course, put an angel in a brothel, HilarityEnsues.

** When Dean first learns that Castiel is a virgin, he decided that ''apocalypse'' could wait until Cas has that particular problem fixed. Of course, put an angel in a brothel, HilarityEnsues. Cas is a subversion, as he doesn't have sex [[spoiler:for another four seasons]], and is no less of a [[{{Badass}} badass]] for it.

** Of course, this changes by the end of the film:

** Of course, this changes by Joe, in his overly formal way, always refers to her as "the virgin Connie Swail". But at the end of the film:

* Hinted and then Confirmed in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', during Sheryl's stay with Alto in episode 22, both of them finally spent the night together which was proven in a Macross Magazine and later in the light novels.
** Considering the huge kerfuffles about false interviews and other sources, link please?

* Hinted and then Confirmed in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', The light novel adaptations of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' makes it clear that during Sheryl's stay with Alto in episode 22, both of them finally spent "spent" the night together which was proven in a Macross Magazine and later together. Given how loosely ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' plays with continuity, who knows if this applies in the light novels.

* In ''Film/TheGraduate'', it's pretty clear that Ben, the protagonist, is a virgin before he sleeps with Mrs. Robinson. He acts so horribly awkward she outright asks him, and he unsuccessfully tries to deny it, so she basically dares him to prove himself. "Just because you happen to be inadequate in one way..." To his...credit?...Dustin Hoffman, 30 years old at the time, does a great job of playing a nervous, shy virgin.

* In ''Film/TheGraduate'', it's pretty clear it could be interpreted that Ben, the protagonist, is a virgin before he sleeps with Mrs. Robinson. At the very least, he sleeps with Mrs Robinson because she challenges him on his inexperience. He acts so horribly awkward she outright asks him, and he unsuccessfully tries to deny it, so she basically dares him to prove himself. "Just because you happen to be inadequate in one way..." To his...credit?...Dustin Hoffman, 30 years old at the time, does a great job of playing a nervous, shy virgin.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/SwordInTheStorm'' by David Gemmell, the protagonist is sent off to the local 'earth maiden' so he'll know what he's doing on his wedding night. He proves to be quite a fast learner.

* Totally subverted in ''Film/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly'' where the protagonist (played by Creator/TomCruise) is a wrestling star in high school who loses his final match, much to the disappointment of his parents, goes off to Vietnam to prove his manhood, and gets his legs blown off. He then loses his high school sweetheart, who he had been saving himself for (who remains his friend and gets him involved in the anti-war movement). In a fit of despair, he moves to a whorehouse in Mexico frequented by boozy, PTSD'd Vietnam War paraplegics and attempts to lose his virginity (more or less) to an attractive girl there. He doesn't enjoy it much.

For the "logical" extreme of this trope, see EunuchsAreEvil. Contrast ChasteHero, CelibateHero, UrbanLegendLoveLife, NatureAdoresAVirgin, and VirginPower (although, thanks to this trope, that last one usually only applies to women). For the (more or less) [[GenderFlip gender-inverted]] version, see MyGirlIsASlut.
