* The Lovely Lacey, who treated Wrestling/JimmyJacobs like crap for as long as she knew him, decided to award him with sex after he finally fulfilled her desire to remove BJ Whitmer from Wrestling/RingOfHonor with an injury. Jacobs, who had been courting Lacey in spite of her mistreatment, turned her down. They did end up having sex later, but only after Jimmy saw that Lacey had become as dedicated to Jimmy as he was to her. Also, [[MyGirlIsASlut Jimmy let Lacey have sex with other men]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist so long as it supported his radical social movement]], to prove sex wasn't the reason he had fallen for her.[[/folder]]

* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'': Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers do this in volume 1. After their first "date", Scott ends up at Ramona's apartment with the (literal) [[GirlOfMyDreams girl of his dreams]] half-naked, on top of him, in bed. Ramona abruptly changes her mind about sex, and they still sleep in the same bed. Scott professes to be fine with this. It's unclear whether he's telling the truth or is just willing to let her set the pace and take what he can get in the meantime; when he's with a woman he really likes, he has a tendency (especially this early in his CharacterDevelopment) to be pretty whipped. Then again, Ramona doesn't change her mind until ''Scott'' shows some hesitance.
* In ''Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan Annual #3'', Peter Parker and Mary Jane discuss whether they're ready to take their relationship to the next level. In the end MJ decides she's not, and Peter tells her that while he wants to sleep with her, he's more than willing to wait until she's ready.

However, Ramona abruptly changes her mind about sex, having sex with him the moment he shows some kind of reluctance in the process of beginning to do the deed (Granted, she does tell him that she gets to change her mind later if she wants to, and they still sleep in the same bed. Scott professes bed). Scott, who unknown to be both Ramona and the reader, is still shaken from how his relationship with Envy Adams ended, is completely fine with this.

** The romance with Leliana has similar leanings, as she wants to wait until she's in love before agreeing to go to bed.
** The ''PlayerCharacter'' can invoke this in any romance, if the companion approaches you for sex first. Surprisingly, ''[[ReallyGetsAround Zevran]]'' takes it best. If you shyly state that you're not ready and ask to wait a while he's actually charmed, and welcomes you to let him know whenever you're ready. (True to his word, the only way to sleep with Zevran after that is for the Warden to approach him about it, as he doesn't pursue it again). By contrast, the other love interests honor your feelings but are clearly disappointed (and somewhat embarrassed) and lose some affection if you ask to wait when they approach you.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'': When a romanced [[GayOption Dorian]] approaches a male Inquisitor for sex, said Inquisitor can either agree to jump into bed, or ask to wait a while. If the latter, Dorian is shocked into silence, but happy to wait since he secretly yearned for a loving monogamous relationship with a man he loved, but was conditioned to think such things were impossible in his home country, where homosexuality is regarded as such a shameful secret that casual trysts were all he ever knew.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect'': If you romance Liara, she asks to wait because she wants it to be special. She then approaches you [[PreClimaxClimax just before the final battle.]]

* Don and Denise in ''Literature/WeCantRewind'' present a somewhat unusual case in that they're both somewhat sexually experienced already, he being a widower and she being a single mother. Since he's also a rather traditional religious conservative kind of guy and she's recovered from being a sexual abuse victim and AbsurdlyYouthfulMother, however, he has little trouble convincing her to save their first time with each other for the wedding night. [[InsatiableNewlyweds Once they get to the wedding night, however...]]

If the character who wants to wait is male, it's usually to show him as a romantic or old-fashioned (often both), probably due to the belief that usually AManIsNotAVirgin. If female, there's about the same chance it'll be because AllWomenArePrudes.
