* Parodied in a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch where Paul Reiser AsHimself is interviewed on a talk show and is asked how many sexual partners he's had in his life. He answers three dozen, which the host then mishears as three, and proceeds to deconstruct ruthlessly, explaining that all men automatically exaggerate their numbers, so "three might really mean just two, one, or even zero." A group of proud virgins in the audience stand up to congratulate him and [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame immediately make him their rolemodel to his utter dismay]] and [[AManIsNotAVirgin virulent protest.]]

* In the unaired pilot for the TV adaptation of ''ComicBook/GlobalFrequency'', the main female lead is listing her very lengthy list of academic qualifications, all of which she has achieved at a very young age (she's no older than thirty). The male lead makes a joke along the lines of "how'd you find time to have a life?" The female lead, suddenly very touchy, begins insisting that she had a life, ending with a completely out of the blue and not very convincingly delivered declaration that she "had boyfriends," the implication being that she's lying and is probably still a virgin.

** In Season Eight, Amy and Sheldon finally have sex--so in Season Nine, Amy is very, ''very'' willing to bring up the fact that she's now sexually active, even when it has very little to do with the conversation at hand.
